Metro Sports Report

Marion's Fisher opts for Upper Iowa

Marion High School senior Tyler Fisher has accepted an offer to play football at Upper Iowa University next season.

Fisher played quarterback and linebacker for the Indians last fall, but he prefers defense and was recruited as a linebacker.

"I've always liked defense," he said. "I'm kind of that type of guy."

Fisher, 6-foot-2, weighs 205 pounds, but he'd like to reach 225 by the time he joins the Peacocks.

Fisher made 96 tackles in 10 games for Marion last season. He also passed for 883 yards and rushed for 232 yards for the Indians, who finished 7-3 and made the Class 3A playoffs.

Open enrollment has been relatively harmless

Between my junior and senior year in high school, my family moved from the west side of Cedar Rapids to the east side. Naturally, I wanted to finish at Jefferson with my friends rather than go one year to Kennedy.

Since I wasn’t a high profile athlete (bench warmer in basketball, sometime scorer on the golf team), there was little problem staying at Jefferson for my senior year. A guidance counselor and former neighbor of our family handled the request with no paperwork or superintendent approval.

Had I been a Mr. Basketball candidate or a four-star football recruit, Kennedy might have balked, claiming I lived only a few blocks from 42nd Street and Wenig Road. But that wasn’t the case.

Manning, Trcka earn MVC honors

Kennedy's Jake Manning and Xavier's Tara Trcka were two of the six Mississippi Valley Conference Athletes of the Week announced Monday.

Manning, a 6-foot-5 senior, scored 30 points in a pair of conference wins that kept Kennedy in second place in the Mississippi Division boys basketball race. Included was 21 points against Prairie that helped raise his league scoring average to 12-plus points per game.

Trcka, a sophomore bowler for Xavier, torched the lanes last Friday, rolling games of 267 and 247 for a 514 series that led the Saints past Washington. The 514 is the second-highest series by a conference girls bowler this season. She boosted her season average to 212.
