Spring football scrimmage

Hawk Talk

Last Saturday the Hawkeyes held their final practice of the spring with a scrimmage.
I’ll try to break down the offense, defense and special teams.

Offense

The offense won the game 46-31 on a couple of touchdown passes, a rushing touchdown and three field goals by Marshall Koehn.
They also received points for plays over 20 yards.
Jake Rudock is a solid number-one quarterback. Going against the defensive starters, Jake was 11-22 for 165 yards and a touchdown pass.
Jake’s lone bad pass was a 35-yard throw against the wind that Desmond King picked off.

Spartans dominate Denny Gruber Invitational

SOLON– Solon hosted its own invitational track meet last week, named in honor of former boy’s track coach and teacher Denny Gruber. He was most likely proud as he watched the Spartan boys outdistance second place Mt. Vernon by 57 points to claim the team title.
Final scores were as follows:
Solon 137
Mt. Vernon 79.5
Regina 76.5
Vinton-Shellsburg 70
CCA 67
Beckman 57
North Cedar 48
Assumption 23
Gruber still coaches the jumpers for Solon and they helped to get the team off to a great start in the field events, scoring two places in both the high and long jump.

Gunnells wins Drake shot put crown

DES MOINES– They say to save your best for last.
