REMINDER: CCL games to be played in Ankeny on Thursday

Tonight’s YMCA Capital City League action will be played in Ankeny tonight for the first time in the league’s history. Action will get underway at 5:30 at Faith Baptist Bible College.

The slate of games for Thursday night will pit Solomon Young and Terrence Lewis‘ Doerrfeld Promotions squad against Marial Shayok and Cameron Lard‘s Sparta Waste Services.

Donovan Jackson will lead Hinterland up against Lions Club, who will once again be without five-star freshman Lindell Wigginton and, most likely, UTSA graduate transfer Jeff Beverly.

Nebraska transfer Michael Jacobson and Hannah Homes will square off against Nick Weiler-Babb and JayTees Apparel in the nightcap.
