Prairie High School - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Nic Mougin wins Metro Spotlight Award

Nic Mougin of Cedar Rapids Prairie is the winner of the Metro Spotlight Award for high school boys this week, the Metro Sports Report announced Sunday night.

Mougin, a junior, was a key member of the Prairie baseball team that won the first Mississippi Valley Conference title in school history this year and set a school record with 31 victories.

Mougin had a .413 batting average entering the Class 4A substate tournament with 15 doubles, two triples, two home runs and 28 RBIs. He played the infield for the Hawks and also compiled a 2-2 record on the mound.



Prairie stopped in substate finals

The most successful season in school history ended a step too soon for the Cedar Rapids Prairie baseball team Wednesday night.

The Hawks ran into one of the hottest clubs in America and lost to Iowa City West, 5-2, in the Class 4A substate finals before an overflow crowd at the Prairie diamond.

Prairie smashed the school record with 31 victories this year and captured the first Mississippi Valley Conference title in school history, but the Hawks played the wrong dang club on the wrong night Wednesday.

Iowa City West, which dropped both ends of a doubleheader to Prairie earlier in the year, has won 19 of its last 21 games and is sizzling right now.

No. 3 J-Hawks shocked by North Scott

Invaders from Pluto, unhappy with the United States for spying on their planet, kidnapped the Cedar Rapids Jefferson baseball team Friday night and took their spot on the field against North Scott.

It was not a pretty sight.

The third-ranked J-Hawks played one of their worst games of the season and were shocked by North Scott, 11-8, in the opening round of the Class 4A substate baseball tournament at Jefferson.

The imposter from Pluto who wore Spencer VanScoyoc's jersey was knocked out of the box in the second inning and charged with seven runs.

The imposters who played defense for Jefferson committed five errors.

There were six walks, three wild pitches, two passed balls and a balk.

Jefferson entered the game with a 29-8 record, favored to make the state tournament for the first time since 1998. North Scott arrived at the Jefferson field with a 17-20 record, including a 6-1 loss to the J-Hawks during the regular season.

"It's not very often a 6-seed beats a 1-seed, but we have one goal this year and it's to go to state. We're still alive," said North Scott Coach Brad Hanna.

Cedar Rapids Jefferson catcher Maddie Hansen has been named the Athlete of the Year on the All-Metro Softball Team, as selected by Metro coaches.

Hansen, a senior, is hitting .504 with 11 home runs and 46 RBIs to rank among the state leaders in all three departments. She plans to play next season at Kirkwood Community College.

Hansen has helped the third-ranked J-Hawks reach the Class 5A state tournament with a 35-7 record. Jefferson will face Linn-Mar in the opening round at 3:30 p.m. Monday in Fort Dodge.



Prairie baseball team wins No. 30

BETTENDORF - The Prairie Hawks joined an elite group of high school baseball teams Tuesday night by winning their 30th game with a 13-5 verdict over Bettendorf.

Only a few teams reach the 30-win plateau on an annual basis in Iowa and the Hawks have made it for the first time in school history, shattering the previous school record of 27 victories.

Cal Clark led a 17-hit attack for Prairie by going 3-for-4. Nic Mougin was on base all night and went 2-for-3 with a double and four runs.

Ben Boldt went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs. Tyler Nunemaker was 2-for-3 with two RBIs and was the winning pitcher. Trey Beckman and Corbin Day also had two hits.

Prairie raised its record to 30-7.
