Nate Karlan wins Metro Spotlight Award

Cedar Rapids Jefferson senior Nate Karlan is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school boys this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

Karlan is one of the top sprinters in the Mississippi Valley Conference and ranks No. 2 in the 100 meter dash in the Mississippi Division at 11.14 seconds.

Karlan helped the J-Hawks place second in the 4x200 relay at the Drake Relays last month in 1:28.56, the second-fastest time in the state this year. The J-Hawks broke the school record in the 4x200 that had stood since 1981.

Kennedy, Jeff boys win 5 events

DUBUQUE - The Kennedy Cougars and Jefferson J-Hawks came home from Dubuque Thursday with five gold medals from the MVC Mississippi Division boys track meet.

Kennedy claimed three victories with Willie Rhoads in the high jump (6-foot-6), Derek Jacobus in the long jump (21 feet, 11.75 inches) and Drew Heitland in the shot put (50 feet, 11.75 inches).

Jefferson won two events. Nate Karlan claimed the 200 meter dash (22.10 seconds) and joined Jacob Beaton, Dan Larson and Dylan Chittick on the victorious 4x200 relay (1:29.50).

The Cougars got second-place showings from Mark Schulz (800), Shaun Beyer (high jump), the 4x100 relay, the 4x200 relay and the shuttle hurdle relay. Kennedy got third-place finishes from Famiek Cook (100), Marcus Perkins (400 hurdles) and Dalles Jacobus (discus).

J-Hawks nab 3 silver medals at Drake

DES MOINES - The Jefferson J-Hawks are extremely proud about setting the state record in the girls 4x200 relay last year, but the expecations are much higher now.

Now they expect to win the race every time, even though Jasmine Blue and Lucy Schneekloth are the only two holdovers from that record-setting quartet.

Jefferson finished second in the 4x200 relay Friday at the Drake Relays, getting nipped by Davenport Assumption by 33-hundreths of a second. They plan to do better the next time they run in a major event at the state meet.

By coincidence, the J-Hawks also placed second in the 4x200 relay at Drake last year before setting the all-time record in the event a month later at the Class 4A state meet.

It could be deja vu all over again.

Jenks, Evans lead Metro parade to Drake

Linn-Mar distance stars Stephanie Jenks and Josh Evans are poised to leave their mark on the Drake Relays again next week.

Jenks, a sophomore, is seeded first in the 1500 meter run, first in the 3000 meter run and second in the 800. She won the 1500 and 3000 at Drake last year as a freshman.

Evans, a senior, is seeded first in the 3200, third in the 1600 and 10th in the 800. He and his teammates are seeded No.1 in the 4x800 relay and the sprint medley, with Evans the anchor on both relays when they ran their best times.

Evans set a meet record at the Drake Relays last year when he captured the 1600 in 4 minutes, 10.86 seconds. He also finished second in the 3200.
