Linn-Mar High School - Marion, Iowa

Schmidt, Noble share Metro Spotlight Award

Linn-Mar seniors Ryan Schmidt and Trevor Noble are the co-winners of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school boys this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday.

Schmidt and Noble shared the spotlight Friday night when the sixth-ranked Lions smashed Waterloo West, 63-28, in a district football game in Waterloo.

Schmidt, a 6-foot-5, 230-pound quarterback, passed for four touchdowns and ran for three scores as he collected 398 yards of total offense.

Noble caught three touchdown passes for 135 yards and scored on a 55-yard interception return.

Greve commits to swim at Minnesota

Linn-Mar senior Calvin Greve has accepted an offer to swim in college at the University of Minnesota.

Greve placed seventh in the 100 backstroke at the state meet last season as a junior. He got a late start to his swimming career but has been impressive on the AAU circuit with the Cedar Rapids Aquatics Association.

Greve has qualified for the Winter Juniors in the 200 backstroke. He is also a top student in the classroom.

   

Cougars make strong run in MVC tourney

After winning  five straight matches Saturday, the Kennedy girls finally ran out of steam and had to settle for second place to Iowa City High in the 14-team Mississippi Valley Conference volleyball tournament.

Along the way, the Cougars got revenge for regular-season losses to Iowa City West and Linn-Mar. And they beat City High in three games in pool play during the morning session.

But in the championship final the Little Hawks found their groove and posted a dominating 25-16 25-16 victory.

“I think the kids were kind of zapped at the end,” said Kennedy Coach Michelle Goodall. “And Iowa City came out on fire.”

Ranked eighth in Class 5A, City High (21-9) came into the tourney as the top seed with the only unblemished MVC record of 6-0. The Class 5A 10th-ranked Cougars (25-11) were seeded eighth based on their 4-2 conference mark.

Drake, Lions shatter 3 MVC records

It's too bad they don't have a decathlon for high school swimmers.

If anyone could win 10 events at one meet, it would be Linn-Mar sophomore Kelsey Drake.

Freestyle, butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke. Sprints, middle distances, long distances. It wouldn't matter.

Drake, Drake, Drake, Drake.

"It would be her," Linn-Mar Coach Chad Derlein confirmed Saturday. "It doesn't matter, she can swim it. Whatever event.

"She's probably the most versatile swimmer I know."

Drake starred at the Mississippi Valley Conference meet at Kennedy Saturday. She broke meet records in the 200 individual medley and 100 butterfly, then had a sizzling anchor on the 400 freestyle relay to help Jenn Jenks, Lizzie Adams and Stephanie Jenks shatter another record.

High school swimmers are limited to four events at one meet. The closest Drake ever came to a "decathlon" in swimming was at the 12-and-under state meet a few years back, when she recalls winning nine events.

Drake enjoys all four strokes, although the butterfly is her favorite. "I could swim butterfly and never got bored with it, I love it so much," she remarked.
