Washington High School - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Bokoyo wins sprints for J-Hawks

Merje' Bokoyo has arrived at Cedar Rapids Jefferson this year with speed.

Bokoyo, a transfer student from Galesburg, Ill., captured the 100 and 200 meter dashes at the John Ask Relays Saturday on a cool, sunny day at Kingston Stadium.

Bokoyo claimed the 100 meter dash in a hand-held time of 10.92 seconds, which Jefferson Coach Ron Tower said would translate to about a 11.15 electronic clocking.

"That's a good time. No question, this early, in the cold," said Tower.

Bokoyo helped Galesburg finished third in the 4x100 relay and sixth in the 4x200 relay at the Class 2A state meet in Illinois last year. Tower said Bokoyo is originally from the Congo in Africa.

Printy transfers from Wash to Linn-Mar

Cedar Rapids Washington junior Jared Printy has decided to change schools and will begin classes at Linn-Mar High School next Monday, his father told the Metro Sports Report Monday night.

Printy, 6-foot-5, was the leading scorer for the Washington basketball team this season at 12.2 points per game. He also averaged 4.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists and made 51 3-pointers.

"It was a family decision, something we thought was best for Jared moving forward. A difficult decision," said Boyd Printy, Jared's father.

Washington Coach Adam Sanchez and Linn-Mar Coach Chris Robertson could not be reached for comment Monday night.

Jared Printy's cousins are basketball coaches at Linn-Mar. Jordan Printy is an assistant coach with the Linn-Mar boys basketball team and Jaime Printy Brandt is the head coach of the Linn-Mar girls basketball team.



Warriors dumped by No.1 Trojans

Cedar Rapids Washington’s 6-foot-7, 300-pound mountain man Julian Good-Jones, scholarship-bound to Iowa State next fall to play football, knows top talent when he sees it.

And he saw plenty of it Tuesday night at the U.S. Cellular Center as his Warrior basketball team was steamrolled by unbeaten and top-ranked Iowa City West, 79-50, in a Class 4A substate final.

“They’ve got five Division I players,” a worn-out Good-Jones said with admiration afterward. “And all of them are very athletic.

"It’s hard to compete against dudes like that. They just run and gun and keep on going.”

Washington Coach Adam Sanchez thought he had a good game plan against the 23-0 Trojans, who have won three straight state championships and seem to be the team to beat again in the tournament that starts next week.



Warriors earn shot at Iowa City West

The Cedar Rapids Washington players and coaches aren’t the only ones who think they can bump off top-ranked and undefeated Iowa City West in the Class 4A substate finals this Tuesday at the U.S. Cellular Center.

“West for a long time has played at a different level than, really, the rest of the state,” said long-time Burlington Coach Jeff Bloomer after watching his undermanned Grayhounds get pummeled by the Warriors, 62-39, Friday night.

“We all know that," he said. “But Washington has a lot of length and a lot of athleticism. When you have a combination of those two things, you can pose problems for anyone.

“They’re a tough team. They’ll be hard for anybody to matchup against.”

Always-upbeat Washington Coach Adam Sanchez knows it will be a tall task to upset a 22-0 Trojan juggernaut that has steamrolled nearly every team in its path this year. West dumped the Warriors, 68-46, in their fourth game of the season back in mid-December.



No.8 Lions earn date at No.6 SE Polk

The eighth-ranked Linn-Mar girls basketball team cruised by Cedar Rapids Washington, 62-28, in the Class 5A regional semifinals at Linn-Mar Saturday night.

The Lions (16-7) will play at sixth-ranked Southeast Polk (16-6) in the regional finals Tuesday night in a showdown for a trip to the state tournament.

Linn-Mar built a 35-14 lead over the Warriors at halftime and never looked back. Amanda Ollinger led a balanced scoring attack with three 3-pointers and 14 points. Kamryn Finley scored 13 points and Olivia Montague had 11.

Joniqua Clark and Kandis O'Donnell scored seven points apiece for the cold-shooting Warriors (13-9). Washington shot 1-for-17 on 3-pointers and was 9-for-39 overall from the field.

WASHINGTON (28): Clark 2 3-3 7, Semrau 0 0-0 0, Visser 2 0-1 4, Corey 0 1-2 1, B. Hoeger 0 0-0 0, Hartman 0 0-0 0, Squires 1 0-0 2, Arrington 1 0-0 3, Bruner 0 0-0 0, Puk 0 0-0 0, O'Donnell 3 1-3 7, Oler 0 4-4 4, Johnson 0 0-0 0, Cullen 0 0-0 0, M. Hoeger 0 0-0 0. Totals 9 9-13 28.

LINN-MAR (62): Ross 0 0-0 0, Lorenz 0 0-0 0, Swanson 0 0-0 0, R. Frese 0 0-0 0, Noggle 0 2-2 2, Akers 0 1-2 1, L.

Totals 18 19-24 62.

Halftime - Linn-Mar 35, Washington 14. 3-point goals - Washington 1 (Arrington 1), Linn-Mar 7 (Ollinger 3, Montague 2, Murphy 1, Larson 1).
