Jefferson High School - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

J-Hawks falter without Ollinger

In high-energy sports like basketball, you can compete for only so long on adrenaline alone.

In their first game without their star player Friday night at home, the Jefferson girls played their hearts out in the first half against Xavier.

Then they simply ran out of gas.

Ahead for the opening 12 minutes, the short-handed J-Hawks trailed just 18-15 at the hallway point. But as they sagged from then on, the surging Saints picked up steam and won going away, 50-22.

Jefferson (5-4, 4-2 MVC) managed only five points from center Kennedy Dighton and two from point guard Avery Guy in the second 16 minutes.

They desperately needed 6-foot-2 all-stater Amanda Ollinger, who left the team two days ago and will transfer to Linn-Mar.

“I thought the girls played great during that first half,” said even-tempered Jefferson Coach Jason Edwards. “We were moving the ball, and we knocked down some shots.”

But with just six girls (all juniors and sophomores) facing the relentless pressure of Xavier’s patented pressing defense, they could not sustain the momentum.

Longtime Xavier Coach Tom Lilly said his squad knew what to expect coming into the contest.

“Jefferson came out with a lot of energy and enthusiasm,” he noted. “Missing their best player, they wanted to tell the world.‘Hey, we don’t need her.’

No.3 J-Hawks slap No.4 Prairie

Cedar Rapids Jefferson wrestling coach Dick Briggs has all the presents he needs for Christmas now.

The third-ranked J-Hawks put another ornament on their tree Thursday night with a 34-28 victory over fourth-ranked Prairie in a Mississippi Valley Conference showdown at Prairie.

Jefferson has collected victories over No. 4 Prairie, No.5 Iowa City West and No. 7 Linn-Mar this season and the campaign has barely started.

"It feels pretty good," said Briggs. "It's an early Christmas present. But this is a fun team. Hopefully we can keep it rolling throughout the season."

Briggs and Prairie Coach Blake Williams juggled their lineups Thursday, looking for an edge at different weights, and Jefferson prevailed by winning eight of the 14 bouts.

Ollinger leaving Jeff for Linn-Mar

Amanda Ollinger confirmed Wednesday night that she has played her last basketball game at Cedar Rapids Jefferson and will start attending Linn-Mar High School when school resumes in January after the holiday break.

Ollinger, a 6-foot-2 junior, is one of the most decorated two-sport athletes in the state. She has been named all-state in basketball and volleyball and has committed to the University of Iowa for basketball.

Ollinger said the transfer is for "personal reasons" and not related to basketball. Both of her parents, Scott and Bonnie Ollinger, work in Marion and the family will be moving from the Jefferson district to the Linn-Mar district in the coming weeks, making it more convenient for the family.

According to IGHSAU rules, Ollinger will be immediately eligible at Linn-Mar since her family will be living in the Linn-Mar district. She will become the second high-profile athlete to switch from Jefferson to Linn-Mar this year. Kelsey Drake, a state champion in swimming, moved from Jefferson to Linn-Mar for the beginning of the 2014-15 school year.
