Linn-Mar High School - Marion, Iowa

Warriors make strides at MVC swim

Swimming is a curious sport.

Iowa City West set eight records at the Mississippi Valley Conference meet Saturday at the Linn-Mar Aquatic Center, yet Dubuque Senior claimed the championship despite winning only one event.

The Washington Warriors did not win any races Saturday, yet Coach Chris Cruise was all smiles after the event.

It's the nature of the sport as teams point toward the state meet in Marshalltown next month.

Iowa City West, with its glittering array of stars, will be the heavy favorite to win another state title despite finishing second in its own conference meet. And the Washington Warriors, with rich tradition on their side, are probably a lot stronger than their 13th spot in the power rankings would indicate.



Lions nab 2 titles at Clinton

CLINTON – The Linn-Mar wrestling team won a pair of individual titles and scored 117.5 points for sixth place Saturday at the Bob Lueders Invitational.

Washington scored nine points for 19th place.

Matt Wempen improved to 15-0 with a 12-2 major decision over Sean Gohlke of Milton for the 145-pound title for the Lions. Shea Hartzler (29-1) won the 160 title with an 11-1 major decision over Davenport Assumption’s Joe Argo.



No.1 Waukee girls down Linn-Mar

The Linn-Mar girls basketball team, ranked as high as No. 5 earlier this season, dropped a fifth straight game, losing to top-ranked Waukee 52-42 Saturday at Linn-Mar.

The Lions trailed just 23-22 at halftime, but the Warriors went on an 18-9 run in the third quarter to pull away.

Reily Jacobson had 21 points and eight rebounds for Waukee (14-1). Anna Kollmorgan had 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Christensen leads Wash over Lions

Shania Christensen rolled a 257 game and 427 series Friday to help Washington defeat Linn-Mar, 2606-2513, in a Mississippi Valley Conference bowling meet at the Cedar Rapids Bowling Center.

Alexis Tschantz of Linn-Mar (3-5) challenged Christensen for top honors with a 425 series with games of 212 and 213. Lynze Moon had a 398 series for Washington (3-5).

WASHINGTON: Viola Niyizigama 117-127 = 244, Lucy Forster 148-156 = 304, Christine Cejka-Emig 94-101 = 195, Ally Owens 171-157 = 328, Lynze Moon 218-180 = 398, Shania Christensen 170-257 = 427.

LINN-MAR: Emma Davis 155-135 = 290, Dori Whitlock 111-171 = 282, Kayla Johnson 177-169 = 346, Mekena Diercks 166-137 = 303, Abbie Smith 129-152 = 281, Alexis Tschantz 212-213 = 425.

Linn-Mar: 1646 + 867 = 2513



Linn-Mar girls nipped by Wahlert

Ranked as high as fifth in the state two weeks ago, the Linn-Mar girls dropped their fourth straight game Friday night at home to an undersized Dubuque Wahlert squad that had trouble holding onto the ball or shooting straight.

“They played harder than us,” said frustrated Linn-Mar Coach Jaime (Printy) Brandt after the 34-33 lackluster loss. “We need a gut check. We have to figure out what’s going on.”

Wahlert (6-9) came into the game “struggling,” according to veteran Coach Kris Spiegler.

“We’ve been looking for our identity,” she said. “But, oh my gosh, this win is huge.”
