(Bedford) The KSOM Athlete of the Week is Cody Morris of Bedford. Morris ran for 397 yards and 5 touchdowns in his teams 69-16 win against Corning last Friday night. The 397 rushing yards is the most by any player in any class all season. Morris leads the district and ranks third in the state with his season total of 1,485 yards on the year. His 25 touchdown runs ties him for 2nd best in the state.


(Adair) The Adair-Casey Bombers have just one more team standing in their way of an undefeated district season. After starting the season 0-2 against two teams that are ranked in the top 5 in the state, the Bomber win streak has now gone to 6 games. They already have the district championship in hand as they look for win number seven in a row against Lamoni tonight.


Lamoni has an uphill climb to make the playoffs. Lamoni would need to beat Adair-Casey and also get some help from Ankeny Christian Academy beating Lenox.

(Panora) The Griswold Tigers placed 6th as team in last year's state cross country meet and may have an even stronger squad this season. Despite losing a couple of standout seniors, the Tigers are ranked 4th in the latest state rankings. Corning and Tri-Center join Griswold as the other state ranked teams in the field at Panora Thursday. Coach Jane Chaillie says that her team is running their best at this point in the season.


For the Griswold Tiger boys, they have one individual who looks capable of advancing to state. Coach Chaillie said she hopes Xavier Olivo can finish in the top 10 at Panora which would secure a state meet qualification.

(Neola) 27-3 Tri-Center will oppose 14-13 Underwood in the Class 2A Regional Volleyball Tournament which begins Tuesday night. Tri-Center has already topped Underwood two times this year, but Brian Wedemeyer it'll be a tough ball game because of the familiarity with playing a team three times.


The winner of this matchup will play at St. Albert high school next week in the regional quarterfinals. Whoever advances will take on either St. Albert or Treynor.

(Ames) In 2009-2010, Hallie Christofferson was leading Exira High School to a first ever state championship, in 2010-11 Christofferson averaged 9.3 points per game as a freshman and 5.1 rebounds per game for the Iowa State Cyclones. This season Christofferson is expected to play another major role on the Cyclone's women's basketball team.


In an interview with KSOM/KS95.7 sports, Christofferson said she worked this summer on developing a hook shot, shooting a lot of three pointers, and adding some muscle in the weight room. She admitted to being overwhelmed initially by the jump from a Class 1A high school to Big 12 college basketball. Hear more of what she had to say about her standout freshman year as well as her thoughts on the upcoming season by clicking below.

(Panora) The Corning Girls will be among the teams expected to compete for one of the three spots at Panora on Thursday. A top three finish would secure a state meet berth. The Corning girls are coming off of a Pride of Iowa Conference championship and have arguably their best runner, Kristen Carmichael, returning from injury. Griswold, Tri-Center, and Audubon are expected to be Corning's toughest competition.


For the boys team, Coach Sandy Winter says Lane Petersen and Garrett Newton both have a chance at finishing in the top 10. The top 10 individuals and the top 3 teams will advance to the state meet in Fort Dodge on October 29th.

(Atlantic) Atlantic scored a big win in Class 3A District 1 football friday night when they beat Carroll 41-26. The Trojans improved to 3-5 this season and handed 6-2 Carroll their second loss in as many weeks. Sophomore running back Jacobs Dvorak picked up over 100 yards on the ground while junior running back Harrison Hoegh threw for over 200 and had three touchdowns. Juniors Sam Markham caught seven passes for 99 yards and a TD.


Atlantic will take on Red Oak to close out the regular season next week. The Trojans playoff hoped remain alive, but they will need some help from Winterset to get in. It was the first time under head coach Tim Duff that Atlantic had beaten a team with a winning record.

(Treynor) Tri-Center can now cross two of their three big goals off the list. Regular season conference champs, check. Conference tournament champs, check. Next up is making the state tournament.


Tri-Center topped Missouri Valley 25-17, 25-13, 27-25 in the conference championship held last night at Treynor. Molly Dollen had 35 assists. Coach Brian Wedemeyer says having a player like Dollen at setter is 'priceless.' Shelby Sullivan contributed 12 kills while Malory Christiansen chipped in with 9 kills and a team high 13 digs.

(Anita) CAM opposes Lenox in a game that will air on KSOM Friday night.

It’s 6-2 CAM hosting 3-4 Lenox in a battle of two quality programs in 8-Player football. CAM is riding a three game win streak while Lenox had a three game win streak of their own snapped by Adair-Casey last week.


CAM has a district record of 4-1 and is tied for second place with Murray, a team that they play next week. Lenox is trying to hang on to the fourth and final playoff spot. The Tigers come into Week 8 with a 3-2 record in the district. Lenox has to hold off 2-3 Lamoni to qualify for the postseason.

(Carroll) Atlantic Senior Ali Krogman made Hawkeye 10 conference history with her individual championship at the conference meet held Thursday night in Carroll.

Krogman became the first ever four time girls individual champion in Hawkeye 10 conference meet history when she crossed the finish line in a time of 15:50.

Regina Reinig of Harlan and Cortney Jacobs of Atlantic each claimed three conference championships during their outstanding careers but Krogman, who won a state championship in 2009, is in a class of her own as a four time Hawkeye 10 conference champion.

(Neola) Tri-Center takes on Treynor in a matchup of Class 1A District 8 rivals in Week 8. Tri-Center enters this game with a 5-2 record while Treynor is 4-3 overall.

These are two very similar teams on paper. Both teams are 3-2 in the district 8 standings. They both trail Logan-Magnolia and St. Albert by two games in the standings. The winner of this game will likely end up as the #3 seed in the district heading into the playoffs.

(Atlantic) On KS95.7 Friday night it’s 6-1 Carroll at 2-5 Atlantic.  Carroll is 4-1 in the district while Atlantic is just 1-4 in Class 3A District 1 play. Carroll started the season 6-0 before falling to Creston-O/M last week. The Tigers still have a good shot at the district title but would need to win out to accomplish that goal. For Atlantic, their playoff hopes took a big hit when they lost last week to Lewis Central, but could get back into the playoff race with a win against Carroll.

Tom Robinson, Perry Fief, and Keith Stork will have the broadcast. The game kicks off at 7:30 on KS95.7.

Jordyn Sindt placed fourth for a Griswold team that had four runners in the top ten and finished 25 points ahead of runner up Audubon.

Outside of Topham and Sindt's performances, Larissa Backhaus placed 7th, Alyx Flippin was 9th, and Allison Young was 15th. Griswold coach Jane Chaillie said afterwards that the kids knew they had to make sure they performed to the best of their potential even though they knew they were favored to win the meet.

(Oakland) Riverside senior cross country runner Cade Cleaveland is the KSOM Athlete of the Week.


Cleaveland won his 3rd meet of the season on Monday when he outkicked St. Albert's Josh Sindelar at Woobine. Cleaveland ran a winning time of 16:55 at what coach Alex Oliver described as a very hilly course at Woodbine. Coach Oliver credits Cleaveland's success to the hard work he put in over the summer. Cleaveland put in over 150 miles during the offseason. Cleaveland has placed second in the four other meets this season that he hasn't won.


The Western Iowa Conference meet is coming up on Monday, October 10th. The meet will be held in Audubon, and with Cleaveland leading the way, Riverside will be a contender for the team title. Missouri Valley is expected to be their toughesh competitor at the conference meet.

(Adair) 4-2 Adair-Casey has simply been on a roll since the start of 8-Player District 6 play. On their four game winning streak, the Bombers are averaging 64.5 points per game. Their narrowest margin of victory in the last three weeks is 39. Next up for Adair-Casey is Lenox, a team that won the district last season but graduated almost all of their starters.  


If Adair-Casey can get by 3-3 Lenox, the remaining teams on their schedule are a combined 2-10.

(Corning) Corning head coach Kent Bass says his team used thier bye week to get healthy. The Red Raiders will be trying to end a five game losing streak while their opponent is looking to stop a six game slide.  Despite both teams having just one win this season and being winless so far in the district, they are both very much alive in the playoff hunt. Corning could find themselves in a tie for 2nd place in the district if they win on Friday. Coach Bass says his team has been treating this game like a playoff game for the last two weeks.

(Carroll) It was a wild win on Friday night for the Carroll Tigers. Carroll blew a 24-6 lead only to come back in the game's final minute to win 35-34. Coach Dennis McCartin describes the third quarter as a 'nightmare', but says his team showed guts to come back and score at the end of the game.


Carroll now focuses on 5-1 Creston-O/M who is the only other remaining unbeaten team in the Class 3A District 1 standings.

(Treynor) The regular season is winding down in high school volleyball and for the Treynor Cardinals coach Janet Fiene says her team is hitting their peek.

The Cardinals are just 14-13 overall this season but they are 5-1 in conference, they’ll close out the regular season this week with Audubon on Tuesday and then a Triangular with Corning and Clarinda. Next week it’s the Western Iowa Conference Tournament.

Coach Fiene says she still has high hopes for this group once they get into the regional tournament. Treynor will play St. Albert in the first round of the Class 2A regional volleyball tournament.

(Greenfield) Nodaway Valley stopped their three game losing streak with an offensive explosion on Friday night against Pleasantville. The Wolverines even their record at 3-3 with the 61-13 victory. Coach Steve Shantz says everything was clicking on offense.

He says the playoffs start for his team this week. Nodaway Valley will likely have to win out in order to make the playoffs. That playoff push starts with a very good Des Moines Christian team this week. Des Moines Christain is 5-1 this season and quarterback Austin Stubbs leads the District with 735 passing yards this season.


Nodaway Valley is 1-3 in the district and they are currently two games out of the playoff hunt. Panorama is the only unbeaten team with Central Decatur, Des Moines, Christain, and Mount Ayr all having one district loss. Nodaway Valley also trails 2-2 West Central Valley in the district. The top four teams qualify for the playoffs.
