14 local players make all-conference lists
Although some schools' seasons came to an end early and others ended just shy of state, four Jasper County schools received plenty of good news with the release of the Heart of Iowa and South Iowa Cedar League all-conference lists.
Fourteen total players were honored throughout the lists, with Prairie City-Monroe landing five players, Lynnville-Sully totalling four, Collins-Maxwell-Baxter landing three and Colfax-Mingo landing two.
