Welcome to JCS

Thank you for visiting Johnson County Sports, a website/blog devoted to covering prep sports in the Iowa City area. This is the first post for JCS, which launched last week, in part, for a University of Iowa Journalism class.

JCS will attempt to cover all three Iowa City high schools — City High, West High, and Regina — with an emphasis on boys and girls basketball. The first live event will be covered within the next two weeks, but content should be posted on a couple times per week basis, at the very least.

In what has become a booming prep sports scene, Iowa City seemingly loves its high school sports. Many distinguished athletes have emerged from these schools and earned Division-I scholarships while others have enjoyed the ride of her or his prep career.

Above all though, these area high school teams have had success. And at a consistent rate.

Take this season, for example. The West High boys and girls basketball teams are rolling right now, and both Regina squads are sure to make some type of a run in the state tournament. The West girls made it to the state finals last season. City High has had some powerhouse teams in the past, too.

So, welcome to JCS. Who knows where this site will go, but hopefully some quality content can be provided to any type of consumer of Iowa City prep sports news.
