Warriors, Lions tangle in 4A showdown

The resurgent Linn-Mar football team has gotten off to a 3-0 start, but the Lions will face their stiffest test of the season Friday night when the Washington Warriors invade Linn-Mar Stadium for a Class 4A non-district game.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. on KCRG 1600-AM/107.5 FM.

Linn-Mar senior quarterback Ryan Schmidt has rushed for 152 yards and seven touchdowns this season. He also has passed for 240 yards and two touchdowns by hitting 19 of 35 passes.

Speedster Perrion Scott has carried the ball 26 times for 287 yards. He scored three touchdowns in the first quarter last week in an easy win at Clinton.

Logan Benter, a running back and linebacker for the Lions, missed last week's game with a leg injury, but is expected back this week.



Prairie pops into volleyball rankings

The Cedar Rapids Prairie volleyball team has jumped into the No. 10 spot in the Class 5A state volleyball rankings, the IGHSAU announced Thursday.

Linn-Mar dropped out of the rankings this week.

No.10 Saints reach North Scott semis

ELDRIDGE - The Xavier High School volleyball team went 2-1 in pool play Saturday and then lost to Quincy, 25-19, 25-17, in the semifinals of the Lancer Invitational in Eldridge.

The Saints, ranked 10th in Class 4A, began the tournament with a 21-15, 22-20 victory over Woodward Granger. Xavier lost to Bettendorf, 21-14, 16-21, 15-6 in the second round, then topped Davenport West 24-22, 21-11 in the final round in pool competition.

Bettendorf, which is ranked No.3 in Class 5A, defeated Quincy for the title, 23-25, 25-16, 15-13.

Kayla Torson collected 58 digs, 24 kills and seven blocks in the tournament for Xavier. Madsy Richards finished with 47 digs, 20 kills and five aces.

Rachel Sodawasser had 32 assists, Amy Olberding had 19 assists, Charlotte Richards contributed seven blocks and Ellie McDermott had two aces.


No.1 Saints spank No.3 Solon

The Xavier Saints have been ranked No.1 in Class 3A football by the Des Moines Register all season, based largely on tradition.

Now they've earned it.

Xavier stomped third-ranked Solon, 28-0, Friday night with a stingy defense and powerful running game at Saints Field in a Class 3A District 4 affair.

Xavier began the season with a 24-2 loss at Dowling Catholic, which is ranked No.1 in Class 4A and the defending state champs. Since then the Saints have handed two of their top competitors in Class 3A with a 30-6 conquest of then-No.5 Davenport Assumption and now Solon.

This was the first Class 3A district game for the Saints since dropping down from Class 4A. Solon reached the semifinals of the Class 3A playoffs last year and is a traditional state power, so stuffing the Spartans was a major achievement.
