(Indianola) Adair-Casey track and field record holder Brice Sheeder, now a freshman at Simpson, placed in three different events at the Iowa Conference Indoor Championship Meet over the weekend.

Defending champion Davenport Assumption is moving ahead in the Class 3A state tournament.

Danielle Moore led a big run during the middle of the game that carried fourth-ranked Assumption to a 54-41 victory over Glenwood in first-round action. Assumption improved to 23-2 under first-year coach Mallory Youngblut and will play in a semifinal game at 7:45 p.m. Thursday.

Moore shot 4-for-7 from 3-point range and led all scorers with 23 points. Kate Fennelly added 12 points for the Knights, while Jasmine Binion and Grace Fennelly scored six each.

Morgan Lucy led Glenwood with 14 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks in her final high school game. Lucy is Glenwood's career scoring leader with more than 1,000 points and will play at Southwest Baptist next season.
Grace Newman added eight points for the Rams, who reached the state tournament for the first time since making the six-player field in 1979.

Glenwood held Assumption at bay early and led 12-8 going into the second quarter. The Knights then got rolling and hit the Rams with a 27-2 run that stretched into the second half and produced a 35-14 lead.
Moore keyed that burst with three 3-pointers and an old-fashioned three-point play. Kate Fennelly knocked down a pair of 3-pointers during the run and Mary Kate Fennelly hit one. Assumption finished 8-for-17 from long range.

Glenwood never gave up and responded with 12 straight points to cut the lead to 37-28 on Newman's 3-pointer late in the third quarter. But Assumption scored seven of the first nine points in the fourth quarter to open a 46-30 lead, then sank free throws the rest of the way to finish it off.
Youngblut is a former Assumption star who took over after last season's coach, Hall of Fame player Jennifer Goetz, left to become the head coach at Pleasant Valley.



IGHSAU Release




(Des Moines) Tember Shechinger's huge game and IKM-Manning's big second half helped the Wolves advance to the Class 2A State Semi-Finals.


IKM-Manning got 23 points, 15 rebounds, 9 assists, and 5 steals from their versatile senior point guard int he 71-55 first round victory. The Wolves trailed the previously unbeated Bellevue Comets by two points at halftime but used an 11-2 third quarter run to take control of the game. IKM-Manning would outscore their opponents 24-13 in the third quarter and 42-24 in the second half.


The 3rd ranked Wolves move on to the semi-finals where they will match up with 22-3 Pella Christian. #15 Pella Christian also defeated a previously unbeaten opponent in the first round with their 66-63 win over #2 West Hancock.


(Denison) Bishop Heelan opened the game on an 11-2 run and never trailed on their way to a 70-64 substate final win over Harlan Monday night.

Heelan held leads of 21-13 after one quarter and 31-25 at the half.

(Greenfield) Nodaway Valley punched their ticket to Wells Fargo Arena with a 49-41 win over Exira-EHK at SWCC in Creston on Saturday night. In front of a packed house, the Wolverines overcame an early deficit and hung on for the win. Exira-EHK grabbed an early 4-0 lead and the teams went back and forth the rest of the half. The late stages of the second quarter featured a number of lead changes and the teams went into the locker room tied at 20. Nodaway ouscored Exira-EHK 17-8 in the third quarter and started to take control in the fourth quarter when the Wolverines scored on several consecutive possessions down the stretch. Nodaway Valley led by an 8-12 point gap for nearly the entire 4th quarter.

(Atlantic) Tim Duff has resigned from his position of head varsity football coach for the Atlantic Community School District. Coach Duff has served as Atlantic's head coach during the 2010 and 2011 football seasons, leading Atlantic to a 4-6 record and a playoff appearance in 2011.

He will continue to teach and coach for the Atlantic Community School District. Atlantic Activities Director Josh Rasmussen says, "We will begin the hiring process as soon as Mr. Duff's resignation is presented to the school board."


(Boone) Guthrie Center topped East Greene 65-36 Thursday night to claim their third district title in as many years. 


The Tigers were led by Gavin McGiveny's 24 points which included knocking down five three-pointers. Adam Courtney scored 16 and Marcus Bolton added 11. Guthrie Center improves to 15-9 in a season that some may have considered to be a re-building year. The Tigers lost four senior starters from last year's, but have created a new identity and find themselves one win away from heading back to the state tourney where they placed 3rd a season ago.


Guthrie Center will have to wait and see who they will play on Saturday in the sub-state final at Fort Dodge. The Class 1A District 5 Final between defending state champion Storm Lake, St. Mary's and Spirit Lake Park was postponed to Friday night.

(Clarinda) With a 51-42 win over CAM, the Exira-EHK Spartans advance to the sub-state final to take on Nodaway Valley.


Exira and Elk Horn-Kimballton's initial season resulted in a trip to state a year ago and now the Spartan's find themselves one win away from a return trip to Wells Fargo Arena. The Spartan's improved to 22-1 on the season and eliminate the CAM Cougars (19-5) from postseason play.


Exira-EHK held a 10-9 lead after one quarter but then exploded for a 10-2 run to start the 2nd quarter and never trailed the rest of the way. Zach Himmelberg and Dayton Rasmussen each scored 14 points in the win. Ryan Aupperle (13) and Dan Holste (11) were each in double figures for CAM. Holste's back-to-back three pointers cut the lead to as little as six with three minutes left, but CAM was unable to complete the comeback.


KSOM will have play-by-play coverage of the substate game from Southwestern Community College in Creston. 21-2 Nodaway Valley and 22-1 Exira-EHK will tip-off at 7:00 on Saturday.

(Area) Loren Williams of Tri-Center and Seth Esaias of Red Oak share the KSOM Athlete of the Week honor. Each wrestler claimed an individual state title on Saturday.  For the 152 pound Williams it was his second state championship and for the 182 pound Esaias it was his first.

Loren Williams is a junior for Tri-Center who now has two state titles under his belt and a 155-13 career record. He placed 3rd as a freshman at 135, won a state title a year ago at 145, and capped off an undefeated season with a 152 pound championship this year. Tri-Center head coach Andy Hensley refers to Williams as 'not a pinner he's a winner.'


For Seth Esaias of Red Oak, he also finished the season undefeated (54-0). It took overtime in the finals against Garrett Smith of Denver-Tripoli, but Esaias eventually got the pin. Red Oak coach Tiegan Podliska says Esaias is the total package as a wrestler with physicality and a great mental approach.


Esaias ends his career with a 177-16 record. He was a four year state qualifier, placing 7th as a sophomore and winning the championship as a senior.

Guthrie Center head coach Seth Poldberg says it was a close game throughout on Tuesday night and credit's Zeb Osen's defense and Caleb Courtney's offense for being two big factors in the win. Caleb Courtney scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds. Guthrie Center improves to 15-9 and will play 12-10 East Greene on Thursday. The district final matchup will be played in Boone.

(Elk Horn) Exira-EHK has won 15 straight games with their 47-36 win over Adair-Casey in the district semi-finals Tuesday night.

(Manning) IKM-Manning eliminated Audubon from the Class 2A Girls Regional Basketball Tournament with their 41-16 win Tuesday night.

IKM-Manning held a 9-5 first quarter lead, but picked up their eighth team foul of the first half with over six minutes to go in the second quarter. Instead of allowing Audubon to get back in the game from the free-throw line, head coach Gene Rasmussen elected to slow the game down. The Wolves took over four minutes of time off the clock late in the 2nd quarter on one possession and held a 14-7 halftime lead. It was all IKM-Manning in the second half, with the Wolves outscoring Audubon 14-2 in the third quarter and 27-9 in the second half.


IKM-Manning was led in scoring by Junior Kaylee Blake who surpassed the 1,000 point total in her career. Blake was the only scorer in the game to hit double-figures and she scored all 15 of her points in the second half.


IKM-Manning improves 21-2 on the season and will play Des Moines Christian on Friday. Audubon’s season comes to an end with a 15-7 record.

With a tight girl’s basketball Hawkeye Ten race between Lewis Central and Glenwood there are two different scenarios involving who the conference champions or co-champions will be. Lewis Central ended their conference play at 12-1 as Glenwood who is currently 11-1 has their last conference game against Denison tonight. The first scenario would be if Glenwood were to win they would then be co-champions with Lewis Central. The other scenario is if Glenwood were to lose Lewis Central would be the outright conference champions. We will find out who the conference champions will be tonight as Glenwood travels to Denison to take on the 7-5 Monarchs.

(Atlantic) Atlantic escaped Denison 61-58 at Atlantic Tuesday night. And with a little help from Creston took a one game lead in the Hawkeye Ten Conference boy’s basketball race. The Trojans gained a notch on the rest of the Conference field after Creston upset Clarinda 54-52 in overtime. That drops the Cardinals to 9-3, and Atlantic extends their conference mark to 10-2, and 16-3 overall. The Trojans control their own destiny now heading into their final regular season game Friday night at Creston. A win would give the Trojans the outright Conference Title.


Despite, a cold shooting night, Atlantic was able to hold off the Monarch’s who fought back from a ten point deficit in the first half. The Trojans held quarter leads of 10-7, and 25-22, before relinquishing the lead to the Monarchs in the third quarter 42-40.


It was Gunnar Blum’s (pictured) two close range buckets, and Dalton Franken’s free throw shooting down the stretch that saved the Trojans. Franken ended the night with 18-points and 9-of-11 from the free throw line. Gunnar Blum scored 16-points, and Chad Christensen finished up with 12.


Austin Eller led the Monarch’s with 19-points, and Zac Johnson scored 15.


Denison travels to Glenwood Friday night, Atlantic is on the road at Creston.

(Griswold) The CAM Cougar boys basketball team got back to their winning ways Thursday night with a 58-50 victory at Griswold. Ryan Aupperle poured in 24 points and Dan Holste added 21. CAM improves to 16-3 this season. 6-13 Griswold got 19 points from Devin Bates and 17 from Jared Schoning.


The Cougars are tied with Exira-EHK in the Rolling Hills Conference standings after falling short to the Spartans on Tuesday. Both CAM and Exira-EHK have two conference games remaining on the schedule this season.


(Griswold) Despite having just three wins on the season coming into the week, the Griswold girls basketball team has already won two games this week.


The Tigers, now 5-15 overall, topped Riverside 35-33 on Tuesday and followed it up with a 39-33 defeat of CAM in a nonconference game on Thursday. Brooke Hansen (11 points) and Jordyn Sindt (10 points) led the way to the two point win over Riverside on Tuesday. That same duo of Hansen and Sindt stood out again Thursday night against CAM. Hansen totalled 14 points while Sindt scored 10.


Griswold will try to make it a three game win streak when they take on Underwood Friday night. The Underwood game will be the final contest of the regular season before the Tigers meet up with Shenandoah on Saturday, February 11th in the first round of the Class 2A Regional Tournament.


(Omaha) At Omaha’s CenturyLink Center last night, the 12th ranked college basketball team in the nation picked up their 21st win of the year and they did it in blowout fashion.

Creighton 102, Illinois State 74. The Jays got 25 points from sophomore star Doug McDermott. The coaches son shot 81.8% on the night. He went 9-11 from the floor including 3-3 from behind the three point arc, and shot 4-6 on free throws. The Ames native ranks 3rd in the country with his 23.6 points per game average. The Bluejays are now 21-2 overall with an 11-1 Missouri Valley Conference record heading into their matchup with 15-9 UNI on Saturday.


(AMES) Exira High School grad Hallie Christofferson recorded her third career 20 point game on Wednesday night.


She shot 5-8 from the field including 2-3 on three-pointers. Christofferson also connected on 8-12 free throw attempts in Iowa State’s 73-52 win over Oklahoma State last night in Ames. Christofferson also tallied five rebounds helping the Cyclones improve to 12-8 overall and 3-6 in the Big 12.


Iowa State will host Texas on Saturday. ISU has won three of their last four games. Christofferson averages 10.5 points per game this season. 


(Oakland) The top two boys teams in the Western Iowa Conference standings will square off Friday night in Oakland.

16-2 Riverside takes on 18-0 Treynor tonight. Top ten ranked Treynor defeated Riverside 51-45 in early January, but the Bulldogs can tie up the conference race with a win on Friday.  Riverside coach Jason Shelangouski says his team is confident that Treynor is beatable and that they can be the team to hand the Cardinals their first loss.

Riverside has gone on a season-long nine game winning streak since their loss to Treynor on January 6th. Junior Ricky Williams is averaging 26.6 points per game and 12 rebounds per game over the past two weeks but Coach Shelangouski says it’s not just Williams who has played better late in the season. Ean Patrick is coming off of a 7-10 shooting performance.

Friday nights game will be the second of what could very likely be three meetings between these teams this season. Treynor is the #1 seed in Class 1A District 1 while Riverside is the #2 seed. The District tournament for Class 1A begins Monday, February 13th.

(Atlantic) Atlantic/CAM 132 pound senior wrestler Rob Young is the KSOM Athlete of the Week.

Young, who is pictured recording a pin in the season opening double dual with Audubon and Griswold, has compiled a 38-2 record during his senior season. He claimed a Hawkeye Ten Conference championship last Saturday. Young picked up big wins over Glenwood’s 26-6 Jesse Bendt and Creston/O-M’s 29-10 Zach Goodrich on his way to the 132 pound individual championship.


Atlantic/CAM finished as the runner up to Creston/Orient-Macksburg in the team standings. Young was one of two individual champs for the Trojans this year. Last year, he finished as the 125 pound runner-up to Lewis Central’s Tyler Feller in the Hawkeye Ten Conference Tourney.

Rob Young is ranked 5th in the Class 2A 132 pound individual rankings by He and his Atlantic/CAM teammates will compete at the sectional tournament in Harlan this Saturday. KS95.7 FM will have reports twice an hour throughout the day.


(Greenfield) Nodaway Valley kept their conference championship hopes alive with a 51-32 win over Mount Ayr on Tuesday. The Wolverines improved to 17-2 on the year and trail Bedford by one game in the Pride of Iowa girls standings.


Coach Tom Thompson says his team's defensive pressure was the key to Tuesday's win. Nodaway Valley's only conference loss came to undefeated Bedford, a team they will say again on Tuesday, February 7th. Before that conference showdown with Bedford, Nodaway Valley will oppose Southeast Warren at home on Friday in a game that will air on KSOM.


Coach Thompson talks about the Mount Ayr win and the conference race with Bedford on the pregame interview below:

(Villisca) Villisca beat Stanton in the third matchup of the season between the two schools. The Bluejays came away with a 43-40 win Tuesday night to avenge their loss to the Viqueens in the Corner Conference Tournament Championship game. Morganne Haer totalled 15 points and Amanda Focht scored 13. Coach Donna Williams said afterwards that it was a win that her team really needed to get.


Villisca improves to 15-3 on the season and 7-0 in Corner Conference play. The two squads may meet again in the Regional tournament. Both teams are placed in Class 1A Region 8. Postseason play begins February 9th.

(Harlan) Former Harlan Cyclone Quarterback Zach Osborn will continue his football career at Wayne State while classmate Seth Landsman is heading to South Dakota State. The two Harlan seniors spoke with KSOM/KS95.7 sports shortly after signing Wednesday morning. Harlan head football coach Curt Bladt also discussed the signings with KSOM/KS95.7 sports.


Click here for the comments from Harlan football coach Curt Bladt



Osborn chose Wayne State over Northwest Missouri State. He says the chance to be a three-year starter was an important factor in his decision. Osborn added that he grew up thinking he would be a college basketball player, but changed his mind to football at the start of his senior year.

Landsman, whose parents were both athletes at South Dakota State, will join his older brother Luke on the Jackrabbit roster. The Mechanical Engineering program at South Dakota State helped seal the deal for Landsman who also had an offer from UNI.
