Prairie High School - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Blaha win sparks Prairie

Trey Blaha never beat Alijah Jeffery in AAU youth wrestling tournaments, but they're freshmen in high school now and Blaha has fired the first shot.

Blaha defeated Jeffery in a battle of ranked 103-pounders Thursday night to help Prairie trim Linn-Mar, 30-27, in a Mississippi Valley Conference dual meet at Linn-Mar.

Jeffery won both times they meet on the AAU circuit, but Blaha prevailed Thursday with a solid 9-4 victory.

"The team needed me. I had to pull through," he said.

Jeffery was ranked No. 5 in the state by The Predicament with a 26-2 record heading into Thursday's showdown, while Blaha was ranked No. 9 with a 26-4 mark.

"Trey showed some guts and determination. It was good to see," Prairie Coach Blake Williams said. "It's going to help his confidence a lot heading into the postseason, knowing he can go with an extremely tough 103 pounder."

Howell impressed with Hawks' effort

Tia Dawson sure knows how to fill out a stat line.  And the record books.

The 6-foot-2 Washington senior became the school’s all-time leader in blocked shots Tuesday night and dominated Prairie in a 67-51 win at the Hawks' gym.

Dawson passed Kayla Pirtle (1991-95), who had 231 blocks during her Washington career. Dawson now owns the single-season, single-game and career records. She needed just two rejections to break the record, but had four to give her 234.

“I didn’t know that,” Dawson said of the record. “That feels amazing.”

Fueled by a loss and poor performance against Linn-Mar’s Kiah Stokes last week, Dawson had her best all-around game of the year with 19 points, 13 rebounds and four rejections. She altered another 10 shots or so and was a dominating presence inside against the smaller Hawks.

Bennett sets plans for coach search

Craig Jelinek retired as the head football coach at Prairie High School at the end of the 2010 season, more than six weeks ago, and people keep asking Rocky Bennett if he’s hired a new coach yet.

Bennett, the activities director at Prairie, smiles and shakes his head, especially if the question comes from a colleague at the school. As it turns out, hiring a new coach is not simple. There are strict rules and procedures.
