Atlantic and Shenandoah match up in Girls Hoops Tonight


(Shenandoah) Atlantic and Shenandoah match up  in a  girls’ basketball game at Shenandoah  tonight.

 

After starting the season with four straight wins, the (4-3) Trojans have dropped three straight falling short to Red Oak, Creston and Glenwood. Atlantic Head Coach Kelly Juhl says they went back to the basics the last two nights of practice.

 

“We are worried more about ourselves again and practiced with a little more intensity something I think was what we all can say was lacking in Tuesday night’s loss to Glenwood,” explained Atlantic Head Coach Kelly Juhl. “We are trying to be more prepared mentally and physically for this game tonight.”

Atlantic will have some matchup issues when they face Shenandoah. The Phillies start three players that are six-foot tall, including senior post Serena Parker who is averaging 20-points and 8-rebounds a game.

 

“We are going to start Catherine Leornard,” stated Juhl. “She has been doing better in practice and fighting harder and harder and we are going to match her up against Parker and see how that goes for us,” he said. “They present a matchup problem for us and so we are going to change our lineup tonight to try and combat that.”

 

Shenandoah Head Coach Jon Weinrich says it is important to go into the Christmas break with a win, and notes that they will be facing a much improved Atlantic team.

 

“They had some big wins early and I know that have lost several in a row but that is the Hawkeye Ten Conference for you this year, every night’s a battle and you just have to make enough plays to win,” said Weinrich. “We did not play well against Lewis Central on Tuesday and the team is excited to get back at it. We know it’s going to be a great game and we are just hoping to get one last win before the break.”

 

Weinrich says the key for them will be to get the transition game going and identify Trojan guard Erin Olsen, who is averaging 10-points a game with a season high 30 against A.L. in the Trojans opener last month.  

 

“Atlantic has some good scorers and I think Erin Olsen is one of the best in the Hawkeye Ten so we have to know where she is and try and hold her point total down,” said Weinrich. “But the main thing is we need to put a full game together tonight.”

 

Tip-off is set for around 7:40, the game will be broadcast on 95.7F.M.

Full Strength Audubon Boys Post Impressive Win Against Riverside


(Audubon) Following an 0-5 start the Audubon Wheelers finally got healthy, finally played their first home game, and finally got their first win of the Michael Strasko era. 

 

The Wheelers had everything come together in the 65-37 win over Riverside Thursday. The Wheelers benefited from the return of Tyler Riebhoff, Jalen Nelson, and Andrew Blomme in the lineup to pull away midway through the third quarter. Audubon coach Michael Strasko afterwards admitted it was a breath of fresh air to have all 12 players available for the first time all season. 

 

Lake Hacker led the team with 21 points, most of which came on transition layups after Audubon defensive stops. Audubon went on a 9-0 run in the first quarter to take their first lead, relinquished the advantage late in the first half, and then went on a 6-0 run to lead by five at half, 25-20. Andrew Blomme made a big momentum play with a tip-in a the first half buzzer. That helped carry over into a strong 2nd half which saw Audubon slowly pull away, leading 44-26 through three quarters and resting their starters in the fourth. 

 

In addition to Hacker's game high 21, three Wheelers (Josh Lange, Micky Williamson, and Jalen Nelson) all scored 7. 

 

Riverside got 13 points from Tanner Storrow and 7 from Jake Novotny as they fall to 0-5. 

 

 

Stout Defensive Effort Leads Audubon Girls Over Riverside


(Audubon) The Audubon girls basketball team won their 2nd straight game to start the week with a 42-11 victory over Riverside Thursday. 

 

A 14-0 run late in the first quarter and into the second turned a close game into a rout. A dominant defensive effort had Audubon holding their opponents to just one point in the 2nd quarter to lead by 15 at the break, 20-5. 

 

Emily Haubrich finished with a game high ten points for the Wheelers who forced numerous turnovers with their full court press. Morgan Gust chipped in 9 for Audubon and Brianna Goecke posted 8. Other Wheelers in the scoring column included Kiara Brannan-Sporrer and Courtney Rudolph each with 4, Sydney Obermeier, Taylor Nielsen, and Hanna Lange all with 3 and Kaitlin Schultes scored 1. 

 

The Wheeler's improve to 3-4 heading into a key matchup with 2-4 AHSTW Friday. Riverside heads into the holiday break at 0-6. The Vikings got 4 points from Sheyenne Smith, 3 from Jacey Kallsen, 2 from Maggie Buckingham, and 1 each from Allie Weis and Jamie Hackett.

 

 

Exira-EHK Goes for 7th Straight Girls Win Friday Tonight


(Anita) Class 1A top ten ranked Exira-EHK travels to CAM in high school girls basketball tomorrow night.

 

The Spartans are 6-0 while the Cougars are 4-3. It’s the first of two regular meetings between the Rolling Valley Conference Rivals this season. Exira-EHK has been no match for any of their first six opponents this year. They have an average margin of victory of 41.2 points per game. Their most lopsided win came their last time out when they beat Ar-We-Va 68-19.

 

Mara Burmeister led the team with 17 points and 8 rebounds in that win on Tuesday. She’s one of three Spartans averaging in double figures scoring along with senior Rachel Smith and freshman Sophia Peppers. Exira-EHK averages an impressive 19 steals per game.

 

CAM comes in with that 4-3 record. They had a three game win streak snapped on Tuesday night with a loss to Charter Oak-Ute.

 

 

Pregame coverage for the girls game starts at around 5:50 Friday night on KSOM with tip-off at 6:00. The boys game will follow.

Tri-Center Rides Two Game Win Streak Into Big Matchup With Underwood


(Neola) Tri-Center has raced out of the gates to a 4-1 start in boys basketball. Head coach Chad Harder reports a strength of the team is not having to rely on just one person every night to lead the way. 

 

The numbers back that up as five different players have scored at least ten points in game this year. The lone loss in the Trojan's 4-1 start came to Class 2A #4 rated Treynor, a defending state qualifier. Outside of that, Tri-Center has defeated Adair-Casey, Griswold, Logan-Magnolia, and Audubon. The 43-39 win over Griswold was the only one of their wins that came by less than 17 points. 

 

Two big games await before the holiday break arrives. They'll see WIC foe Underwood on Thursday night before meeting St. Albert Friday. The Underwood game is very important in the conference standings as both teams have just one loss in league play plus its a rivalry. The Eagles lost to AHSTW while Tri-Center's loss came to conference unbeaten Treynor.  Tri-Center has the benefit of being at home against Underwood where they are 3-0 this year. The game with St. Albert Friday is a potential district tournament preview. The St. Albert game will be played as part of the MAC Shootout in Council Bluffs. 

 

Sam Sorenson leads Tri-Center in scoring at 14.4 points per game while Devin Heinen has averaged 13.6. Sorenson is shooting 64.3% from the field and also leads the team in rebounds and steals.

Young Riverside Girls Look to get on track before Holidays


(Oakland) Riverside girls basketball coach Tom Grobe admits it's been a struggle for his team in the early part of the season. The Bulldogs have started 0-5 and are averaging only 19.8 points per game.

 

Senior Sheyenne Smith leads the team in scoring at 8.3 points per game, but she's one of the few regulars that has very much varsity playing experience. The team's only other senior, Taylor Frain, is 2nd on the team in scoring average, but has missed the last two games due to injury.

 

Coach Grobe says the team is focused on taking little steps in the right direction. After traveling to Audubon on Friday they will have played four of their first six games away from home with the only two home dates coming against conference powers IKM-Manning and Treynor.

 

Riverside will see an Audubon team on Thursday that comes in at 2-4. The Wheelers two wins have come against Guthrie Center and Tri-Center.

AHSTW Tops St. Albert and SW Iowa Ahead of WIC Duals


(Avoca) The AHSTW Vikings improved their dual record with a pair of victories on Tuesday night. The Vikings downed St. Albert 54-20 and SW Iowa 48-30. The Vikings are now 4-1 going into the Western Iowa Conference Dual Tournament on Friday and Saturday. The team's lone loss came against power house Logan-Magnolia. The group is coming off of an 8th place finish in a strong field at the Riverside Tournament on Saturday. 

 

In the team's win over SW Iowa Joel Becerra recorded a pin in 1:23 at 120 pounds and Gage Clay (132) also won by fall. Clay's pin came in just :57 seconds. The rest of the individual wins in that dual came via forfeit. 

 

Against St. Albert 106 pounder Carter Phippen won by fall in :28, Anthony Cordes (113) won by fall in :15, others winning by fall included Aaron Fauteux at 138, Nathan Eggers at 126, Joel Becerra at 120, and Dustin Engel at 170.

Smith Reaches Scoring Milestone for Exira-EHK Girls Basketball


(Exira) Perhaps more well known for her athletic exploits in the summer, Exira-EHK senior Rachel Smith  showed Tuesday night she is also an accomplished basketball player in the winter. The All-State softball pitcher reached 1,000 points in her Spartan basketball career as she helped lead her team to a 68-19 win over Ar-We-Va. 

 

The point guard is averaging a team leading 14.2 points per game on the year. Smith has been a four year starter with scoring averages of 9.4 as a freshman 15.3 as a sophomore, and 14.6 as a junior. She's the lone senior starter in a talented Spartan lineup. The team is 6-0 on the year and ranked in the top 15. 

 

Exira-EHK coach Tom Petersen

 

Exira-EHK will take on CAM on Friday night and Coon Rapids-Bayard on Saturday for their final games ahead of the holiday break. The Spartans are one of only 13 teams that remained undefeated heading into this week in Class 1A.

Pesky IKM-Manning Defense Leads Wolves to Victory at Griswold


(Griswold) The IKM-Manning boys shook off a slow start to top Griswold 61-28 on the road Tuesday. Despite not scoring for the first four minutes of the game, the Wolves were able to storm back and win by 33 or more for the 4th time in 5 games this season.

 

Griswold led early 4-0, on back-to-back baskets inside by Walker Mundorf who finished with six points on the night. Both teams displayed excellent defense in the first quarter with the game tied at six apiece heading into the 2nd quarter. That 2nd quarter was a completely different story with IKM-Manning embarking on a 16-0 run to take control of the game. The Wolves defense forced several turnovers and allowed only two 2nd quarter points to lead at half 22-8. IKM-Maning held Griswold scoreless for the first 7:30 of the 2nd quarter. The game was not close in the 2nd half as the Wolves continued to build their lead with fast break points off of turnovers. 

 

Jared Vollstedt led a balanced effort with a dozen points. Jon Brandt, Ben Wegner, and Sam Wegner all finished with 8 each. Cody Eisheid pitched in 7, Kyle Wagner and Colten Hacker 6 each, and Nick Petersen 2. 

 

The bulk of Griswold's points came in the 2nd half when the starters were on the bench. Tyler Wyman scored 7 points, Walker Mundorf had 6, Trevor Elwood 4, Joe Schoning 3, while Jordan Vetter, Caleb Schaaf, Mason Boucher, and James Reynolds all had two each. 

 

Class 2A #3 IKM-Manning zips to 5-0 on the season while Griswold dips to 2-3. 

Muhlbauer Hits 1,000 Career Points in IKM-Manning Win


(Griswold) IKM-Manning held Griswold to just four first half field goals and never trailed in their 78-34 girls basketball win Tuesday. The Wolves used their aggressive pressure defense to frustrate the Griswold offense and capitalize with several easy baskets of their own. 

 

In the halfcourt, IKM-Manning was able to use their size advantage with Katelyn Schechinger scoring 23 points and Morgan Muhlbauer 15. Muhlbauer topped 1,000 career points in the win. Two other Wolves finished in double figures scoring as Kali Rasmussen pitched in 11 and Miranda Hansen 10. Additional IKM-Manning scoring includes: Allison Chapman 8, Andy Nulle 5, Peyton Sporrer 3, and Ally Stadtlander 3. 

 

For Griswold, the Tigers made their first 8 free throws of the game and went 8/10 from the line in the first half, but struggled to find good shot attempts against the IKM-Manning defense. Jeana Freund and Jessica Marshall each scored 11 points. Until Marshall hit two 3-pointers in the final minute of the first half, the Tigers had been held to just 12 points. Marlia Rossell made all four of her free throw attempts and finished with six points while Alyssa Wyman, Kayla Kirchhoff, and Kinzey Nicklaus all scored 2.

 

IKM-Manning, ranked #8 in Class 2A, improves to 4-1 while Griswold drops to 1-4.

Creston tops Atlantic in Boys Hawkeye Ten Conference Basketball


(Creston) Creston extends their record to 4-0 with a 66-55 win over Atlantic in a boys Hawkeye Ten Conference basketball game at Creston Friday night.

 

The Panthers led 13-9 after one quarter and gradually pulled away with solid defense and good outside shooting. Thirty of Creston’s 66 points came from behind the three point line including seven long range buckets in the second half.

 

Creston opened up a 13-5 first quarter lead, however, the Trojans were able to finish the stanza with a 4-0 run to close the gap to 13-9. But that was as close as the score would be the rest of the night. The Panthers gradually pulled away with quarter leads of 31-17, 52-32 and 66-45 the final.

 

“In our first two Hawkeye Ten Conference games we didn’t get off to a very good start and we were able to do that tonight,” stated Creston Head Coach Brett Watson. “We gained a little confidence there and it helped when our shots started falling, because we haven’t shot the best from the perimeter, and overall I was pleased with our defense and our rebounding.”

 

Jay Wolfe led the Panthers with 17 points, Alex Nielsen, 14, Sam Hartsock and Sam Groumoutis scored 10 each, and Cooper McDermott finished the night with 9.

 

Ryan Hawkins led Atlantic with 18-points, Joey Walker 15, and Brenden Holmes, Nick Podhajsky and Garrett Franken all chipped in four.

 

“They shot well and they out worked us at both ends of the floor,” said Atlantic Head Coach Allen Jenkins. “We have to take this as a chance to learn and try to come back stronger and realize that there are a lot of things we have to get better at.”

 

“We have to find our identity and our identity starts at the defensive end and it hasn’t been there this year,” said Jenkins. “We worked like crazy the past two days to try and get there and now we have to get back to work on Monday and get ready for a very good Glenwood team that comes to town on Tuesday.”

 

The Trojans fall to 2-1 and face Glenwood on Tuesday night at Atlantic. The Panthers now 4-0 take on A-D-M Saturday.

Atlantic and Creston square off in Boys Hoops Tonight


(

(Creston) (2-0) Atlantic travels to (3-0) Creston in boys Hawkeye Ten Conference basketball game tonight. The Trojans enter the contest with wins over St. Albert and Red Oak. Creston has recorded wins over Mt. Ayr, Glenwood and Shenandoah, under new head coach Brett Watson, who says Atlantic is a team that has a ton of talent and a ton of skills.

 

“The bottom line is they are very well coached and their kids play extremely hard,” stated Watson. “They have five shooters on the floor with any combination in their lineup and are relentless on the glass. They are going to be a huge challenge for us and we are going to have to match their intensity in order to compete with them for 32 minutes.”

 

Two players lead the Trojans offensively; 6-7 sophomore forward Garrett Franken, 22-points a game, and 6-6, junior post Ryan Hawkins is averaging 18. Atlantic has been strong on the boards in their first two outings pulling down 48-rebounds, 29 of them at the offensive end. And solid at the free throw line, 22-33 for 72.7 percent.

 

Atlantic Head Coach Allen Jenkins says their focus will be on Panther Senior Jay Wolfe, who is averaging 22.3 points and 10-rebounds a contest while shooting 79-percent from the free throw line.

 

“Jay Wolfe has been on a lot of the opposition’s scouting reports for the last couple of years, and his is our primary focus tonight,” said Jenkins. “Everything they do offensively runs through him, whether he has the ball in his hands or is creating space for other people. We are going to give a lot of attention to him with a lot of different guys and we are going to give Creston a lot of different looks to deal with. We feel like we can’t take Jay Wolfe out of the game but you can limit his touches which then limits some things Creston can do offensively.”

 

Wolfe’s supporting cast is not too shabby either. Sam Hartsock averages 9-points per game, Christian Groumoutis, 8.7 and Alex Nielsen, 7.0 points and six rebounds a contest. The Panthers are averaging 56-points a game offensively while holding their opposition to 38-points a contest. Atlantic averages 65 points a game while allowing 57-points.

 

Tip-off is slated for around 7:40 p.m. tonight. The game will be broadcast on 95.7 F.M. and KS957.com.
