Jefferson High School - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Cougars eye state title in final shot

The old gang of Kennedy golfers are all seniors now, heading down their final fairway together as high school athletes.

There are six of them - Davis Sutton, Conner Koberg, Cole Murdock, Tanner Stewart, Ross Grekoff and Seth Nutt - and they've accomplished some impressive things during their prep careers with major championships, conference titles and a pair of second-place showings at the state tournament the last two years.

The Cougars added another Mississippi Valley Conference title to their resume Monday, winning the Valley Division crown by a whopping 52 shots in the final round of the 54-hole event at Ellis Golf Course.

Sutton won the overall Valley championship with a 54-hole score of 217 with rounds of 65, 77 and 75 on three different courses. Koberg took medalist honors Monday with an even-par 72 and placed second overall at 225. Murdock placed third at 227, giving Kennedy a 1-2-3 sweep of the top honors.

Revived J-Hawks top Cougars in OT

The hugs never felt so sweet. The band never sounded so good. The cheerleaders never looked prettier.

After too many years of misery and misfortune, the Jefferson J-Hawks finally had a great reason to celebrate at Kingston Field Thursday night.

Jesse Furrow hit Valentino Green with a 2-yard touchdown pass on a gutsy call on fourth down in overtime as the revived J-Hawks topped Kennedy, 27-24, to snap all sorts of negative streaks.

Jefferson had lost 25 straight games to Metro opponents and had not beaten Kennedy in 12 years, but all that negativity was washed away on a balmy night at Kingston.

The J-Hawks trailed, 24-21, in overtime with the ball resting on the 2-yard line. It was fourth down and a field goal would have tied the game and forced a second overtime, but Coach Brian Webb wanted nothing to do with that.

J-Hawks hope to snap 25-game Metro skid

The Jefferson J-Hawks have lost 25 straight games to Metro opponents the last six years, but Brian Webb's club hopes to end that negative streak Thursday night when it faces the winless Kennedy Cougars at Kingston Stadium.

The kickoff is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. (KGYM 1600 AM/107.5 FM).

Jefferson (2-2) has not whipped a Metro opponent since topping Linn-Mar, 27-19, on Oct. 17, 2008. The J-Hawks lost to five Metro teams in 2009, five more in 2010, five more in 2011, four more in 2012, four more in 2013 and two this year.

Jefferson has given top-ranked Washington and Prairie good battles this season and appears primed to knock off Kennedy, which has struggled this year with an 0-4 record.

Renner helps Lions sweep J-Hawks

Sarah Renner was playing for her club volleyball team at a tournament in Omaha last winter when Sally Polhamus, the new head coach at Georgia State, stopped and took a serious look at the 5-foot-11 outside hitter from Linn-Mar.

Polhamus liked what she saw.

"She was walking down the court and saw me playing and decided that she was interested," Renner related Tuesday night. "I went on a visit. And that was that, I guess."

Renner toured the Georgia State campus in Atlanta last March, was offered a scholarship while she was there and accepted a few days later on St. Patrick's Day.
