Washington High School - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Paulson, McCann eye state doubles title

Tim Paulson and Trevor McCann met when they were eight years old at Bowman Woods Elementary School and have been tennis buddies ever since.

Now the Linn-Mar High School seniors hope to finish their prep careers by capturing the Class 2A state doubles title at the Veterans Memorial Tennis Center.

Paulson and McCann won both of their matches Friday in convincing style and will face Jackson Hoyt and Oliver Hammond of Cedar Rapids Washington in the semifinals at 10 a.m. Saturday.

"This is it. The last hurrah, I guess," McCann said Friday.

Paulson and McCann, the No. 2 seeds, clipped Tyler Kruzan and Sandeep Yeturu of Waukee in the first round, 6-2, 6-1, and they cruised past Cole Schneider and Ryan Smith of Iowa City West in the quarterfinals, 6-1, 6-0.

Warriors earn date with Linn-Mar

Cedar Rapids Washington Coach J.P. Graham gives his soccer team several options on what play to call on free kicks.

The Warriors picked the right one Thursday.

Emmanuel Hidalgo-Wohlleben drilled the game-winning goal from about 30 yards to the left of the net Thursday night as Washington trimmed Marshalltown, 2-1, in the Class 3A substate semifinals at Kingston Stadium.

Washington (9-8) will play No. 4 Linn-Mar (15-3) in the substate finals Saturday at noon at Linn-Mar Stadium, with the winner advancing to the state tournament in Des Moines.

The Warriors are told to scrutinize the defense and look for tendencies when they have a free kick. They missed a chance earlier in the match Thursday, but Hidalgo-Wohlleben connected when it counted with 23 minutes, 20 seconds left to snap a 1-1 tie.



Warriors nip Hawks, reach state semis

Washington sophomores Kelly King and Hannah Sherman were way late for their soccer team’s match at Iowa City West Wednesday night. Once again.

They figure they’ve missed the start of about half of the Warriors’ games this year, but always with a good excuse.

Rare two-sport athletes in the same season, King and Sherman spent four hours on tennis courts in Cedar Rapids Wednesday afternoon and into the evening.

Both were key players in Washington’s hard-fought 5-3 win over a tough Prairie squad in the quarterfinals of the Class 2A state team tennis tournament played at both Jefferson High School and the Veterans Memorial Tennis Center.

Each of them won her singles match handily.



Kennedy girls 3rd at regional golf

Sierra Hargens shot an 86 Tuesday to help the Kennedy girls golf team place third out of 10 teams at the Class 5A regional tournament at Gardner Golf Course.

Maddie Hawkins of Dubuque Senior took medalist honors with a 10-over-par 82. Cedar Falls won the team championship.

The top five individuals and top two teams advance to the state tournament.

Hargens finished eighth in the standings. Mady Goodwin of Washington placed 10th with a 90. Emily Machula of Prairie finished 12th with a 91.
