Marion High School - Marion, Iowa

No.3 Indians clipped at Wamac meet

MOUNT VERNON - They held a mini-state volleyball tournament at Mount Vernon High School Tuesday night and called it the Wamac Conference tournament.

Seven ranked teams reached the quarterfinals of the star-studded field, so some awfully good squads fell by the wayside and failed to reach the semifinals in the elite event.

Unfortunately for the Marion Indians, they were one of the teams that fell short.

Clear Creek-Amana swept Marion, 31-29, 25-18, in the quarterfinals, dropping the Indians into the consolation bracket with other disappointed clubs.

6 Metro teams could make playoffs

Three Metro football teams have clinched spots in the football playoffs and three more Metro clubs are still alive heading into the final week of the regular season.

Washington and Linn-Mar have clinched Class 4A district titles and the Xavier Saints can win their Class 3A district crown with a victory over Marion Friday night.

Jefferson, Prairie and Kennedy are still in contention for Class 4A playoff spots heading into decisive contests.

The top-ranked Washington Warriors and sixth-ranked Linn-Mar Lions will be No. 1 seeds for the playoffs and will face a No. 4 seed in the opening round.

The fifth-ranked Xavier Saints are tied for first place in their district with Solon and Western Dubuque, but the Saints own the tiebreaker and will draw a No. 1 seed by topping Marion.

Wahlert hands Marion 7th loss in row

Despite a dismal 1-7 season, Marion Coach Tony Perkins does not have one bad thing to say about his team.

“I love these kids,” he said Friday night after yet another disappointing loss, this time 28-14 on Senior Night at home to Dubuque Wahlert.

“I still believe they’re a good football team. They don’t believe it. And that’s the hard thing, to get them to believe in themselves.”

As has been the case all year for the hard-luck Indians, they once again gave the game away. Two first-half fumbles deep in their own territory led to Wahlert scores.

The Golden Eagles scored again early in the third quarter after yet another Marion fumble. And they came right back to go up 24-8 following a 33-yard punt return gave them a starting point at Marion’s 38.

“That’s been the way it’s been in our other games,” Perkins pointed out. “We hurt ourselves.

Saints host Regina in premier battle

All of the Class 4A football teams in the Metro area refused to play Xavier when the Saints dropped to Class 3A this year, so the Saints had to get creative and find some willing partners.

They succeeded beyond anyone's wildest imagination.

Xavier will host Iowa City Regina Friday night at Saints Field in an intriguing showdown of state powers.

The Saints reached the Class 4A finals in 2012 and 2013 before the advent of district play in Eastern Iowa allowed them to drop safely into their proper enrollment bracket in Class 3A. The Regals, meanwhile, are the premier program in Class 1A and have won four straight state titles under Coach Marv Cook.

Regina saw its 56-game winning streak come to an end against Solon - a Class 3A club - in the season opener this year, but the Regals have won six straight games since then and are averaging 43.4 points per game.
