(Harlan) The Harlan Cyclones volleyball squad will open up play on Thursday with a match against Lewis Central. The Cylcones begin the year under head coach Angie Spangenburg who will be in her first year at Harlan after several succesful seasons at Red Oak.  


Coach Spangenburg says it's been a fun group to work with and the team has talent despite being fairly young and inexperienced. She says she hopes to compete for Hawkeye-10 Conference titles year in and year out and adds that the team won't be intimidated by anyone.

The Griswold Tigers racked up 498 rushing yards on their way to a season opening 49-14 win over Corning. Griswold averaged 12.1 yards per carry as a team and didn't attempt a single pass in the game.


Garrett Muhlbauer led the way with 195 yards. Jared Schoning, Chase Jahnke, and Kenneth Clary all finished with more than 80 yards on the ground.


Griswold starts off the season with a 1-0 record and will take on Riverside next week. Corning moves to 1-1 on the season and the Red Raiders play at Nodaway Valley next Friday. 

(Exira)The Exira-EHK Spartans drove the ball 61 yards for a touchdown on their very first drive of the season to set the tone early and secured a convincing 27-8 victory over Audubon Friday night.


Exira-EHK used all running plays to move the ball down the field and score on their first possession. The drive was capped off by an 8 yard TD run by senior quarterback Spencer Smith.


Audubon fumbled the ensuing kickoff and it didn't take Exira-EHK very long to take advantage. On the very next play after the fumble, Smith connected with Lucas Mortensen on a 32 yard touchdown pass. After the two point conversion, Exira-EHK led 15-0.


Audubon's first and only score of the game came late in the first half when they scored on a four yard pass from Blair Kerkhoff to Ben Irlmeier. The score was set up by an interception and long return by Kolton Jensen.


Audubon would score again a safety in the third quarter to get things back to a one possession game, but Exira-EHK put the game away with their running game in the fourth quarter. Smith added two more scores on the ground with runs from one and seven yards out.


The Spartans move to 1-0 with the 27-8 victory. They will host DM Christian next week. 0-1 Audubon will travel to Guthrie Center in Week 2.

(Audubon) Audubon Cross Country will begin the season on Tuesday, August 30th with a meet at Logan-Magnolia.

The boys cross country team has just four healthy runners right now and loses Aaron Roberts who finished 11th at the 2010 state meet. Riley Jensen is expected to lead the group once he returns from injury.

Coach Monahan says he hopes to see a lot of improvement from the runners on the boys team throughout the season and reports that they are working very hard.


The girls team returns Megan Deist who finished 10th in the state as a freshman. Coach Monahan says Deist had a great summer competing in several road races.

(Oakland) Riverside junior running back Clay Harris is the KSOM Athlete of the Week.


Harris rushed for 147 yards including a 63 yard touchdown in Riverside’s season opening win last Friday night. Harris averaged over 11 yards per carry in the Bulldogs 36-14 victory over West Monona.


Riverside head coach Burke Swenson says Harris has a combination of speed and power and fits well with what the team wants to do in the running game. Coach Swenson also says Harris’s hard work has set him apart. Harris is also the team’s backup quarterback but according to coach Swenson he is too talented to not find a spot for him on the field.

(AHST) The AHST Vikings win their season opener last night 19-6 over the Guthrie Center Tigers. AHST recovered a Guthrie Center fumble at the Tigers 21 yard line midway through the first quarter and capitalized with an Austin Fink one yard touchdown run to lead 6-0. Guthrie Center was able to tie the game up late in the first half when Zeb Osen's first of two interceptions on the night led to a 19 yard touchdown pass from freshman quarterback Curtis Bolton to junior running back Gavin Laughery. AHST used their passing game to grab the lead back in the third quarter. After not completing a single pass in the first half, sophomore Kyle Bauerkemper connected with Tyler Robinson and John Behrens on back to back plays that spanned over sixty yards including the go ahead 30 yard TD pass to Behrens. In the fourth quarter, AHST went back to the running game to wind down the clock and eventually put the game out of reach with another John Behrens touchdown, this time a five yard run with just under three minutes left in the ball game which made it a 19-6 lead.

(Corning) Corning will be looking to improve on a 11-16 record as they enter the 2011 volleyball season. Coach Lindsay Wetzel says she's hoping they can finish in the top half of the conference and get to the second day of the conference tournament. Another goal would be working there way towards the state tournament in Cedar Rapids. Coach Wetzel noted that the team has been working hard in practice so far. Corning's team will feature five senior leaders as well as a freshman that is expected to see alot of playing time. The first volleyball match of the season for Corning will be August 30th against Central Decatur.

(Neola) It's been fourteen years since the Tri-Center Trojans have made the high school football playoffs but first year head coach John Tiarks says anything less than a playoff appearance will be a disappointment. Tiarks has served as an assistant with Riverside and Underwood for the past several years and now gets his first head coaching job. He says he will bring an attacking style of defense and an option based system on offense. Through the first week and a half of practice Coach Tiarks has found that he has a team with a great speed and also good size. Tri-Center will play in Week 0 against Missouri-Valley.


(Guthrie Center) Guthrie Center cross country coach Dave Spratte says five girls and eight boys are out for cross country this fall. The girls team is expected to be led by Therese Frels and Leah Courtney. Both were state track qualifers in the spring and could compete for spots in the state cross country meet this fall. Coach Spratte says that the depth is the biggest strength of the boys cross country team with eight runners competing this year. The first meet of the year for the Guthrie Center Tigers will be at the Dallas Center-Grimes invitational.

(Harlan) The Harlan girls cross country runners returns several members of last season's state qualifying team. Jess Feldman was the top runner a year ago and returns for her junior season. Coach Doug Renkly says he also expects some newcomers to help the team out. Glenwood and Atlantic are expected to be the top competition in the conference. The boys team finished second in the Hawkeye Ten Conference a year ago and may have an even better team this year. Coach Renkly says the team has been putting in a good foundation over the summer and during practice this week. The first meet for Harlan will be August 30th at Glenwood.
