(Harlan) Tri-Center and Harlan combined for 30 runs and 23 hits in a back and fourth baseball game won by Harlan community Tuesday night.
Harlan missed their extra point but still hung on for a 20-10 over Tri-Center, we’re talking high school baseball, not football.
It was Tri-Center who actually scored first, the Trojans raced out to a 2-0 lead after one inning and lead 5-0 through an inning and a half. Tri-Center’s offense on the night was led by Connor Witt who had three hits, four RBI’s and two runs scored.
Harlan’s bats would answer in the bottom of the second when they recorded five runs on four hits and three walks. The Cyclones sent 11 batters to the plate in the 2nd inning which was one of three innings in which they would bat around on the night. Harlan also scored six runs in the third and nine in the 5th. Nine different Harlan Cyclones scored runs in the game led by Zach Osborn and Josh Bruck with three each. Josh Bruck finished with two bunt singles the first of which got the tide turned according to coach Steve Daegas.
Seven different hitters recorded at least one hit in the game. The fifth inning was the largest for the Cyclones who scored 9 runs to end the game in five innings. In that frame the Cyclones took advantage of six walks and two hit batters. Zach Osborn had an RBI single which drove in the game winning runs.
Tri-Center drops to 9-9 overall and Harlan is 16-6.

(Audubon) Fresh off of their 2nd place finish in the Western Iowa Conference Baseball Tournament, the Audubon Wheelers will take on Tri-Center tonight.
Audubon head coach Shawn Birks says his team’s offense was up and down last week, the team had 17 hits in the semi-finals but just one in the championship game.
Audubon enters play on Monday with a 9-8 record. They oppose 8-8 Tri-Center. Each team has won five of their last seven games.
After tonight’s game Audubon will have just four contests remaining on the schedule. The Wheelers will oppose, Treynor, Underwood, Missouri Valley, and Denison-Schleswig.

(Walnut) The final season for the Walnut softball team has turned out to be a very streaky one. The Warrior started off with a bang winning nine of their first eleven games. Then the team lost eight of their next contests to drop to 11-10 overall. Since then it’s been back to the winning ways.
Walnut hasn't fallen short since their 6-0 loss at Glidden Ralston on June 11th. Since then it’s been a string of seven straight victories.
The defending Rolling Hills Conference Champs are still alive in the conference race this season. Walnut has three conference losses while Exira-EHK and Glidden-Ralston each have two. Coach Laci Grooms says a change in the batting order has been a key to the teams seven game win streak.
Walnut is 18-10 on the year taking on an 8-12 Orient-Macksburg. The Warriors will play their final two regular season games in program history at home on Tuesday and Wednesday when they oppose Glidden-Ralston and Villisca.

(Avoca) The 5-9 AHST baseball team heads into play this week with hopes of getting back to .500 on the season. All four of the team’s games are against opponents who also have losing records.
Head coach Jason Holst says it all comes down to how the team responds after their light week last week. The team played only one game last week which was a first round loss in the Western Iowa Conference Tournament so they will be well rested.
To start off the four game week, the Vikings take on a Riverside team that they beat 11-0 on June 1st.
Coach Holst points out that some of the bright spots to this point in the season have been Kyle Bauerkemper, Tyler Robinson, and John Quist.
Kyle Bauerkemper leads the team with a .278 batting average and Tyler Robinson is hitting .270. John Quist is 4-3 with 2.04 ERA. Quist ranks third in the conference with 48 strikeouts.
Outside of taking on Riverside tonight, AHST will also have games against Underwood, Stanton, and Griswold.

(Adair) Many of the area teams were rained out last night in high school baseball and softball but the Adair-Casey Bomber softball team was able to get one game of their doubleheader with Grandview Park Baptist finalized and they came away with their 2nd win of the year.
Adair-Casey snapped a four game losing streak with the 5-4 win in 8 innings. The Bombers led 4-2 going into the seventh inning but gave up the lead to force extras. Leadoff hitter Katie Clarke started off the bottom of the 8th inning by getting on base and then stealing second and stealing third. Clarke then came home on a throwing error by the Grandview Park Baptist catcher. Adair-Casey collected 10 hits in the game. Katie Clark and Macey James each had two hits. Jessica Eblen (pictured) recorded three singles and Eblen was also the winning pitcher. Coach Mike Cooley comments...

(Griswold) Griswold heads into the Western Iowa Conference softball tournament with the #5 seed and the Tigers will play Underwood Tuesday night in the first round at Treynor.
With only four players on the team that are not freshmen or eighth graders, Griswold softball coach Peggy Hanson says her team has exceeded her expectations in earning the #5 seed in the conference tourney.
The Tigers put a lot of emphasis on the Western Iowa Conference tournament as a lead up to the Regional Tournament which is right around the corner.
Coach Hanson admits her team did not play well against Underwood in their previous matchup this season. The Tigers lost that game 10-0.
The format of this year’s conference tournament has changed to the first round and semi-finals being played as a doubleheader on Tuesday with the Championship and Consolation on Thursday. Whoever wins between Underwood and Griswold will take on either #1 seed Treynor or #8 seed Riverside.

(Missouri Valley) Riverside coach Alex Oliver says he’s looking forward to the matchup with Missouri Valley because they are a very well coached team.
Missouri Valley has already notched a pair of victories over Riverside this year but Coach Oliver says his Bulldog squad did a good job of putting the ball in play in the previous matchups. He believes if they clean up their defense they can have a good game. Coach Oliver says his young team is beginning to come of age.
While Riverside is just 1-10 heading into this week’s conference tournament, coach Oliver still hangs on to hopes that his team can turn things around by the end of the year.
Tonight’s game will be played at Missouri Valley tonight. The winner will take on either AHST or Audubon in the 2nd round.

(Neola) Griswold will travel to Tri-Center for the first round of the Western Iowa Conference Baseball Tournament tonight (Monday). The Tigers come in with a 5-8 record on the year and have earned the #6 seed in the tournament.
In two regular season meetings the squads have each won one game. Griswold topped Tri-Center on May 29th 3-2 while Tri-Center evened up the season series with their 14-3 win at Griswold last Monday. Griswold coach Kevin Whitehill says the first game his team played against Tri-Center was one of their best defensive games of the year. The Tiger Defense backed 8th grade starter James Reynolds who allowed four hits and four walks in the win. Reynolds will get the start again tonight and Coach Whitehill says one of Reynold's strengths as a pitcher is that he is so composed on the mound.
The winner of this matchup will take on either #2 seed Treynor or #7 seed Underwood in the semi-finals at Avoca on Wednesday.

(Neola) 10-5 Tri-Center goes up against 15-4 St. Albert tonight in the Class 1A Region 1 soccer final tonight. At stake is a trip to the state tournament.
Tri-Center girls soccer coach Jeff Lefeber says he’s not surprised that his team’s season is still alive heading into the regional finals. Tonight against St. Albert will be a rematch of an April 13th game that St. Albert won 7-1. Allison Cox scored five goals for St. Albert in that first meeting prompting Tri-Center to focus their defense on her tonight.
Cox ranks 4th in class 1A in goals scored this season. The state leader is Tri-Center’s own Kaylee Grotee who has scored 48 goals for the year. Lefeber describes Grotee as a great player who makes everyone on the team better.
Tri-Center has never advanced to the state tourney in girls soccer. Coach Lefeber says making it to state would show the team how important all of their off-season work as been.
