XC Girls Giving it all they’ve got

North Liberty Leader
TIFFIN– There may not be very many of them on the course this season, but the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers cross-country squad will make their presence known.
“Our numbers and experience are our weakness,” coach Jane Astor said. “Our attitudes and work ethic are our strengths.”
Astor, with 26 years at CCA, returns two starters, both sophomores, to the varsity lineup: Kaylie Barker and Ally Loren.

Familiar faces abound for Women of Troy

North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– The West High Women of Troy will be banking on experience on the court in the 2016 season.

Three seniors lead Creek volleyball

North Liberty Leader
TIFFIN– This is Jackie Clubb’s third year at the helm of the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) varsity volleyball program and she has three seniors to lead the way on the floor.
The Creek Girls finished 2015 with a 23-16 record overall and a 4-3 WaMaC conference West Division showing good for fourth place. Two seniors from the 2015 crew were lost to graduation: Alyssa Weldon and Ashley Prusha. Weldon, a unanimous First Team pick for WaMaC All-Conference honors, was a setter and outside hitter while Prusha was a middle hitter.

The tradition starts now

Detour change: Oak Lane and North Liberty Road

NORTH LIBERTY– Early this week, crews began to pave North Liberty Road between Oak Lane and Dubuque Street, as well as the southern portion of the Oak Lane intersection. During this work, traffic to Oak Lane will continue to be detoured north on North Liberty Road, though there may be some delays at times.
Once this is completed, Oak Lane traffic will be detoured south on North Liberty Road to Dubuque Street so crews can pave the north side of the intersection. The contractor has not yet been able to provide an expected date for this change.

Comply now, complain later
