ADAIR-CASEY WIN SETS UP REMATCH WITH MURRAY


(Victor) Murray eliminated Adair-Casey in the quarterfinal round of the 8-player football playoffs last year. Bomber fans and players do not need to be reminded of that. The team finally has a chance to avenge that loss this Friday night in the 2012 quarterfinals.

 

Adair-Casey advances to that matchup with a 52-20 victory at HLV, Victor on Monday. The Bombers raced out to a 21-0 lead and were on top 42-6 by halftime. Gunnar Dinkla passed for two scores (34 yards to Traeton Jensen and 35 yards to Jordan Wheatley) and ran for two more. Clayton Plowman ran for two first half touchdowns to aid the Bomber's cause. HLV did make a run in the second half cutting the lead to 42-20 at one point, but that's when Gunnar Dinkla found Jordan Wheatley wide open down the left sideline on a play-action fake to put the game away. HLV's last gasp at a comeback attempt was negated when a 77-yard touchdown pass was wiped off the board on a holding call in the end zone resulting in a safety, and thus a 52-20 Bomber lead.

 

Adair-Casey moves to 10-1 on the season. They are one step away from returning to the Dome for the first time since 2009. Standing in their way will be the very familiar Murray Mustangs who have defeated Adair-Casey the last two times the teams have met up. Friday night's game between 10-1 Adair-Casey and 11-0 Murray will air on KS95.7 FM.

AERIAL ATTACK OF COON RAPIDS-BAYARD DOWNS FREMONT-MILLS


(Coon Rapids-Bayard) The Coon Rapids-Bayard Crusaders are moving onto the second round of the playoffs where they will meet Exira-EHK.

 

Some may have wondered how Coon-Rapids Bayard, as a #3 seed, was able to go on the road and beat defending state champion Fremont-Mills. Here's how: the Crusaders threw the ball and threw it well. Quarterback Keaton Schlatter hurled the ball 53 times completing 26 of his attempts for 386 yards and 6 TD's. Schlatter has shown in the past that he is capable of putting up big numbers, he passed for 437 yards with 7 touchdowns against Grandview Park Baptist. On Wednesday night at Fremont-Mills Caylor Deeth, Spencer Whinnett, and Brendan McAlister all finished with over 100 yards and at least one touchdown receiving.

 

Coon Rapids-Bayard's defense also came to play forcing four turnovers. McAlister picked off two passes while Zach Evans had a fumble recovery and a pick.

 

The Crusaders improve to 7-4 on the season heading into a rematch with unbeaten Exira-EHK.

GRISWOLD OFFENSE RUNS WILD, DEFENSE PITCHES SHUTOUT, TIGERS WIN IN PLAYOFFS


(Griswold) Back in the playoffs for the first time since 2009 the Griswold Tigers are moving on to the second round. The Tigers picked up a convincing first round victory 46-0 over Woodward Academy.

 

Fueling the win was another fantastic defensive showing. The defense is only allowing 12.2 points per game this season, including just 8.4 allowed over the past five weeks. Josh Metheny and Collin Fast each posted 9 tackles in the win. Metheny and Mason Anstey each recovered fumbles.

 

Offensively Griswold picked up 469 of their 479 yards from the running game. Leading the way was Taylor Briles with 191 yards and not far behind was Kenneth Clary with 182 yards.

 

Griswold takes on Woodward-Granger in the second round at Woodward. Griswold is 7-3. Woodward-Granger is 10-0.

The Spartans were in good field position all night thanks to a stingy defensive effort spearheaded by middle linebacker Nick Peppers who led the team in tackles and forced a fumble. N. Peppers and Kodie Haas each had a pair of sacks. Cody Jens forced a fumble and Drew Peppers and Trey Sander each intercepted passes.

 

Exira-EHK plays Coon Rapids-Bayard next, a team they defeated 63-35 in the regular season.

GRISWOLD VOLLEYBALL MAKES REGIONAL SEMI-FINAL, WILL PLAY TREYNOR NEXT


(Griswold) After struggling through a 4-17 regular season the Griswold Volleyball squad has turned things around in the regional tournament. The Tigers have notched back to back wins to put themselves two victories away from heading to state.

 

Griswold started the regional tournament by cruising past Clarinda Academy in the first round and then continued to roll with a victory over East Mills on Tuesday. Coach Jody Rossell says her team is playing the best they have all season long. She says the team's serving was what carried them to the sweep of East Mills in the second round of the tournament.

 

Up next is a very quality Treynor team on Friday. Treynor is ranked 7th in Class 2A. Griswold was swept by Treynor when they met in the regular season.

NODAWAY VALLEY STAYS ALIVE IN 2A REGIONAL PLAY


(Greenfield) Nodaway Valley had the home crown on the edge of their seats in the Wolverines regional quarterfinal win over Van Meter Tuesday in Greenfield. After winning the first set, Nodaway Valley dropped sets two and three before rebounding to close it out with wins in sets four (25-19) and five (15-13).

 

Head coach Carly Denton says this is right where her team expected to be at this point in the season. They set goals at the start of the year to do well in the regional tournament. Christine Gross and Sidney Reeves each had 8 kills against Van Meter. Megan McIntosh added 7 kills to go along with her three ace serves.

 

13-16 Nodaway Valley will no play 25-6 Des Moines Christian in Urbandale for the Class 2A Regional Semi-Finals on Friday night. The winner of that match will take on either Treynor or Griswold for a trip to state next Wednesday in Greenfield (10/31).

TREYNOR DOWNS AUDUBON TO MOVE WITHIN TWO WINS OF STATE TOURNEY

The Treynor Cardinals improve to 29-6 on the season and the 7th ranked Cardinals will play 7-17 Griswold. Treynor swept Griswold when they met in the regular season on September 11th.

 

Audubon bows out with a 20-13 record. After the match coach Molly Reuter commented that she was pleased with her team's play in the match and very happy with the 20 win total for the year especially considering that they were 11-18 last year.

WHEELERS MAKE PLAYOFFS FOR FIRST TIME SINCE '99


(Audubon) The Audubon Wheelers entered Week 9 knowing that they needed to win big and get some help from other teams to make the playoffs. Audubon took care of their end of the deal with a 52-21 win over Earlham and got the help they needed from Woodward-Granger beating Bedford to knock the Bulldogs out of the playoff race.

 

Riley Jones ran for 136 yards and one touchdown on 19 attempts. Jesse Svoboda added 98 yards on the ground. Trevor Smith passed for 186 yards including 6 completions to Lucas Smith-Petersen for 87 yards and a touchdown. Matt Fett and Lucas Smith-Peterson led the defense with 12 tackles each.

 

Audubon has won 4 of their last 5 games after starting the season just 1-3. The 5-4 Wheelers draw 8-1 Logan-Magnolia in the first round on Wednesday.

CYCLONES MAKE IT BACK-TO-BACK OVERTIME WINS TO FINISH REGULAR SEASON


(Harlan) The Harlan Community Cyclones are no stranger to overtime games. The Cyclones downed Atlantic 28-21 in a Week 8 overtime thriller and followed it up with another classic battle against ADM, prevailing 23-17 in the extra session.

 

The Cyclones got up early thanks to a pair of Trey Lansman touchdown receptions in the first half. Harlan led 14-0 at halftime. ADM would score first in the second half. Tate Jensen picked off a pass midway through the third quarter and ADM cashed in. On a 4th and 11 play, ADM quarterback Kyle Herrick rifled a pass to Jensen for a 26 yard TD. With the score at 14-7, Harlan answered right back with a time consuming drive that ended with a 35 yard field goal to go up 17-7. ADM needed little time to get back to a one possesion game as they scored on a Sam Plagman run from over fifty yards out to make it 17-14. Harlan was unable to put the game away in the fourth quarter and with 1:31 left in regulation ADM booted a 26 yard field goal to send the game to overtime. ADM missed a field goal attempt in overtime and Harlan needed only two plays to power in a touchdown run for the win. Austin Hess carried it out from one yard out to end the game.

 

Harlan finished out the regular season at 8-1 overall and thanks to a Lewis Central win over Creston/O-M, they win the district title. ADM will get the #2 seed but the Tigers have lost three of their last four games.

HARLAN, ADM, AND CRESTON ALL ENTER WEEK 9 WITH DISTRICT TITLE OPPORTUNITY


(Harlan) The Harlan Community Cyclones will host the ADM Tigers in a big time Week 9 matchup. The game will air on KSOM this evening.

 

Harlan, ADM, and Creston-O/M all still have a chance at the district championship. ADM sits in the best position right now as the Tigers simply need a win to be #1. Harlan and Creston both need some help. The Cyclones need a win and a Creston loss. The Panthers need a win and an ADM loss. Harlan head coach Curt Bladt weighs in on the matchup with ADM.

ADM has run for 1,758 yards this season which is among the leaders in Class 3A. Fortunately for the Cyclones coach Bladt says his team’s run defense has been better than they were a year ago.

TRI-CENTER LOOKS TO LOCK UP #2 SPOT FRIDAY NIGHT


(Neola) 6-2 Tri-Center needs a win Friday night over 4-4 West Central Valley to secure the #2 seed in Class 1A District 8.

 

With a 34-24 come from behind win over Panorama last week the Trojans of Tri-Center have positioned themselves to be the runner-up behind St. Albert, but the team still needs one more win in the regular season to secure that home playoff game.

 

Coach Tiarks says his team has been eyeing the #2 spot in the district ever since losing to St. Albert in Week 5 38-27. Coach Tiarks says West Central Valley is a team with a lot of size, but also notes that his team’s quickness has helped them negate the opposition’s size all year long.

CARROLL EYES #2 SEED IN CLASS 3A DISTRICT 2


(Carroll) A home playoff games is up for grabs when Carroll takes on LeMars in Week 9 of the high school football season.

 

The Carroll Tigers have gone from being referred to as one of the best 0-4 teams in the state to a team that could end up as a district runner. The #2 spot in the district is at stake when the Tigers entertain LeMars in Carroll Friday night.

 

Carroll went 0-4 in their first four games, but have been 3-1 since. Coach Dennis McCarten says the big difference has been confidence. He  looks for Friday night’s game to come down to the turnover battle and points out that LeMars has recovered a state leading 16 fumbles.

7-1 ADAIR-CASEY HOSTS 6-3 COON RAPIDS-BAYARD FRIDAY NIGHT


(Adair) Adair-Casey and Coon Rapids-Bayard get together for a non-district contest in Week 9.

 

Despite the game having no impact on the playoff picture, Adair-Casey head man Wade Anderson says he still plans to play his starters at least for a half.

 

The Bombers will be looking to grab some momentum heading into the first round of the playoffs on Wednesday.

 

Coach Anderson says his team is eager to get the playoffs started. No matter what happens on Friday night, Adair-Casey has the #2 seed in their district secured. They will likely host Wayne in the first round of the playoffs one week from tomorrow.

GUTHRIE CENTER GETS ROLLING LATE IN SEASON


(Guthrie Center) The Guthrie Center Tiger football team has roared back with two straight wins.

 

After starting the season 0-6, that makes the two straight wins all the more rewarding. Coach Bob Bolton says their hasn’t been any big turning point, instead the team is just sticking to their game plan.

 

A big reason for the two wins was the running game. Guthrie Center has put up 612 yards rushing the last two weeks. That’s 46% of their season total in only two games. Austin Laabs rumbled for 168 yards against Martensdale-St Marys two weeks ago and Gavin Laughery posted a season high 180 on the ground against Earlham last week.

 

Guthrie Center would love to end their season by derailing Madrid for multiple reasons. It would end a long draught against Madrid plus give the squad momentum heading into next season.

 

Coach Bolton notes that if they play the way they have the last two weeks they will have a shot to be in the game.

AUDUBON STILL ALIVE IN PLAYOFF HUNT


(Audubon) With a win over Martensdale-St. Marys last Friday night the Audubon Wheelers kept their playoff hopes alive. Audubon will still need some help to get in. The 4-4 Wheelers need to beat 1-7 Earlham this week plus have #1 ranked and unbeaten Woodward-Granger down 4-4 Bedford.

 

Just like last week, Audubon head coach Monte Reibhoff says the main thing is that his team just needs to get a win. Fortunately for Audubon the matchup on paper looks favorable against Earlham, but coach Reibhoff warns that they look better than a 1-7 team on film.

 

Audubon does come into Week 9 with some momentum. They bounced back from a loss at Woodward-Academy with a nice win at Martensdale-St. Mary’s, 33-14.

 

Elsewhere in Class A District 7 Woodward-Granger has clinched the district championship. Madrid, Bedford, and Woodward-Academy will all get in if they win this week.

FORMER EXIRA-EHK SPARTAN SPENCER SMITH PLAYING FOR IWCC


(Council Bluffs) The #1 ranked Iowa Western football team downed North Dakota State College of Science 64-6 on Saturday. Several Southwest Iowans contributed to the win including former Exira-EHK Spartan standout Spencer Smith.

 

Smith plays on all of the special teams units for the Reivers and also sees time occasionally on offense at wide receiver. He tells KSOM/KS95.7 Sports that Iowa Western was a great fit for him to continue his football career.

 

Several of Smith’s teammates have already inked Division 1 offers. As for Smith, a freshman, he is still undecided on where he might go, but says he does plan to continue playing somewhere.

 

In addition to his special teams contributions, Smith has recorded 3 catches for 30 yards. Iowa Western is 7-0 on the season.

Exira-EHK's defense and specials teams kept the offense in great field position all night. Taber Anderson and Trey Sander each picked up big punt returns, which set up scores. The Spartans attacking defense put pressure on Ar-We-Va all night and junior defensive back Tate Simpson picked off two passes. Ar-We-Va's two touchdowns came late in the game after the starters had exited the contest.

 

Exira-EHK moves to 8-0 on the season and will finish off the regular season with Heartland Christian next week. The Spartans clinched a district championship with the victory. 2-6 Ar-We-Va takes on Glidden-Ralston in Week 9.

HARLAN TOPS ATLANTIC IN OT


(Atlantic) Cyclone Quarterback Adam Juhl threw a 6-yard touchdown strike to Chris Hopkins in overtime to give Harlan the overtime win in a thriller at the Trojan Bowl in Atlantic Friday night.

 

The Trojans had the Cyclones down to one play in OT, but were called for pass interference which put Harlan on the Trojan six-yard line with a fresh set of downs. Juhl hit Hopkins from the six to open up a 7-point overtime lead. Atlantic was unable to punch it in and the Cyclones picked up the “W” in overtime 28-21.

 

Atlantic deferred and kicked off to start the game. The Cyclones went three and out and punted the football to the Trojans. Atlantic marched right down the field from the Harlan 43 and took a 7-0 lead on a Harrison Hoegh quarterback keeper from 11-yards out. It became a defensive battle until 5:28 left in the first half when Juhl found Nate Kloewer on a 58-yard touchdown pass to even the game up at 7-7, which is how the first half ended.  

 

The Trojans took a 14-7 lead early in the third quarter on a Jacob Dvorak 5-yard run, but the Cyclones would answer with 14-straight points on a Hopkins 12-yard run and a Juhl to David Ratigan 2-yard pass to take a 21-14 lead. The Trojans tied the game 21-21, with 3:42 left, on a 13-yard screen pass from Hoegh to Dvorak. That was followed with a  key interception by Trojan Cornerback Sam Markham with seconds left in the contest. The Trojans ran out the clock and sent the game into overtime.

 

Harlan finished the night with 360-yards of total offense with 209-rushing yards. The Cyclones ground out 190 of those yards came in the second half. Adam Juhl was 11-31 in the air for 151-yards and 2-touchdown passes and Chris Hopkins carried the ball 31-times for 127-yards for the 7-1 Harlan Community Cyclones.  

 

For Atlantic, Harrison Hoegh cracked the 2000-yard single season passing mark  by completing 17-of-34 passes for 196-yards. Hoegh now has a school record breaking 2073 yards passing so far this season. Dalton Franken caught 5-passes for 40-yards, Jacob Dvorak four receptions for 36-yards and a touchdown. Sam Markham hauled in 3-passes for 79-yards, and Kray Lukehart grabbed 2-passes for 59-yards.

 

Harlan squares off against ADM next Friday night. Atlantic hosts Glenwood next week.

RIVERSIDE BOYS MAKE IT THREE STRAIGHT WIC XC TITLES


(Missouri Valley) Despite graduating two of the best runners in the conference, the Riverside boys cross country team was still able to defend their WIC championship. The Bulldogs totaled 41 points in the meet held at Missouri Valley Monday.

 

Ean Patick placed 2nd followed by teammate Brandon Sipherd in fifth. Also earning all-conference honors were Adam Hartman (7) and Tim Brink (12). The fifth runner contributing to the team score was Dillon Carrier placing 26th.

 

Coach Alex Oliver says this year's win was more of a complete team victory. He says the group still has plenty of goals to accomplish the rest of the year including getting back to the state meet.

PIVOTAL GAME AWAITS WHEELERS IN WEEK 8


(Audubon) To clinch a playoff spot in the 2012 season the Audubon Wheelers are going to need some help. There are a variety of scenarios that would land the Wheelers in the playoffs and most of them require Audubon to win the remaining two games on their schedule. Those games come against Martensdale-St. Mary's in Week 8 and Earlham in Week 9.

 

Against Martensdale-St. Mary's, Audubon will be looking to bounce back from a sluggish performance against Woodward-Academy the previous week. Audubon turned the ball over eight times in the 22-29 defeat.

 

Despite the tough loss Coach Monte Riebhoff says his squad goes into the Martensdale St. Marys game with confidence. He looks for the team to be able to run the ball well against the Blue Devils just like Guthrie Center and Bedford have done in the last two weeks.

GRISWOLD FOOTBALL OPERATING AT HIGH LEVEL DOWN THE STRETCH


(Griswold) After a 2-2 start to the season, the Griswold Tigers have turned things on in the second half of the regular season. The Tigers averaged just 9.5 points per game through the first four weeks, but have responded the last three weeks with an offensive average 51 points per game in wins against Westwood, West Monona, and Riverside.

 

The Tiger defense has been solid ever since a Week 1 loss to St. Albert in which they gave up 41 points. Since then the team has combined to only give up 46 points and have lowered their points allowed per game average to 12.4.

 

Rushing yardage has been plentiful during the Tigers four game win streak. That was especially true in Griswold's 47-7 win over Riverside last week. The Tigers ran for 598 yards headlined by Kenneth Clary's 256 yards and 4 TD's. Clary averaged 11.6 yards per carry and went over 900 yards on the season.

 

Up next in Griswold's path is East Mills. The Tigers come into the game at 5-2 overall and 4-1 in the district. East Mills enters at 3-4 overall. Griswold has won five of their last six East Mills has lost three straight.

EXIRA-EHK OFFENSE AND DEFENSE LOOKING SHARP LATE IN THE SEASON


(Exira) Only seven 8-Player teams in the state remain undefeated. Among those is an Exira-EHK squad that checks in at #7 in this week's Sports Spotlight poll and has been crushing everyone in their path this season. The Spartan's narrowest margin of victory this year has been 8 points (vs Woodbine Week 2). All other wins have been by at least three scores.

 

One of their largest wins came last week when they downed Villisca 72-18. Fueling the high point production was the defense which pitched in with three touchdowns. The Spartan "D" picked off five passes and recovered one fumble. Taber Anderson, Cody Jens, and Joe Harris all scored from the defensive side of the ball.

 

Offensively Trey Sander delivered 3 scores and 150 yards.  Drew Peppers ran for 80 yards and 3 TD's. Drew Peppers, nursing an ankle injury, notched a 15 yard TD run on his only carry.

 

The Spartan's high octane offense will air on KSOM this week against the Ar-We-Va Rockets. Ar-We-Va and Heartland Christian are the only remaining teams in Exira-EHK's way of an undefeated regular season.

AHST IN FOR 2ND PLACE IN DISTRICT 8


(Avoca) With three straight wins the AHST football team has put themselves in great position to claim a playoff spot. The Vikings join Griswold and Underwood as one of three teams that all have one district loss.

 

AHST's most recent win, a 24-10 decision over East Mills, put the team in control of their own playoff fate the rest of the way. Jake Larsen rumbled for 123 yards which gives him a district leading 958 yards on the year. Austin Fink spearheaded a strong defensive effort with 11 tackles and a 54 yard fumble return for a touchdown.

 

AHST will face two of the top teams in the district the rest of the season. The Vikings travel to 6-1 Logan-Magnilia in Week 8 and host 4-3 Underwood in Week 9.

ATLANTIC PICKS UP THIRD STRAIGHT WIN ON THE GRIDIRON


(Atlantic) Atlantic Quarterback Harrison Hoegh broke the Trojans 10-year-old single season passing record Friday night in a 41-6 win over Perry. Hoegh finished the night, 18-29 for 247-yards which surpassed Bret Meyers 2002 single season record of 1,817. Hoegh has now thrown for 1,872 yards this season with two regular season games left on the schedule.

 

Atlantic finished the night with 389-total yards of offense, 247 by air and 142 on the ground.

 

The Trojans didn't get on the board until 3:31 to play in the second quarter and  reeled off 41-straight points after that. Jacob Dvorak opened up the scoring on a 4-yard touchdown run following Chad Christensen' interception, his (second pick) of the night. Two minutes later Hoegh fired a 19-yard TD strike to Kray Lukehart that led to a 14-0 halftime lead.

 

The Trojans ripped off 21-straight second half points. Harrison Hoegh got loose on a 35-yard run to paydirt early in the third quarter followed by two more Dvorak touchdown runs of 2 and 9 yards respectively to open up a 35-0 lead.

 

Perry Cornerback Nick Wilhelmy scooped up a Trojan fumble and returned it for a touchdown in the middle of the fourth quarter for the Blue Jays only score. Trojan backup quarterback Joey Walker then  punched one in from 5-yards out with 4:27 left to give the (5-2) Trojans a 41-6 finish.

 

Atlantic hosts (6-1) Harlan this Friday night. Kick-off is set for 7:30. Perry (2-5), travels to (5-2) ADM.

CAM ROLLS PAST STANTON 60-16


(Anita) CAM scored early and often on their way to a 60-16 win over Stanton in Week 7 of the high school football season.

 

The Cougars proved to be a notch above the competition and were able put the continuous clock rule into effect with 6:17 left to go in the first half.

 

Brady Runyan got CAM off to a good start with an interception on Stanton's second play from scrimmage. Runyan was able to convert the turnover into a 1 yard TD run with 8:31 left in the first quarter. Quarterback Trevor McKee's long TD runs in the first quarter widened the margin. McKee scored from 67 and 54 yards out to make it a 24 point game after one quarter. Big plays continued for CAM in the 2nd quarter when McKee found Jarrad Cavin on a 79-yard catch and run to make the score 38-0. Cavin's long interception return for a touchdwon midway through the 2nd increased the lead. Brady Runyan's 2nd TD run of the night, a five yarder, put the halftime score at 46-0. Matthew Williamson provided the fans with a delight following Runyan's third TD run. Williamson, the team's starting right guard, lined up in the backfield and carried the ball across the goal line for a two point conversion. The final CAM score of the night was a 30 yard fumble return by nose guard Tyler Stork. Stanton added two late touchdowns to make the final score 60-16.

 

CAM improves to 6-2 on the season while Stanton slips to 1-6.

TRI-CENTER IS #2 SEED IN WIC TOURNEY


(Neola) Treynor, Tri-Center, and Underwood all split the regular season championship in Western Iowa Conference volleyball and had to go to a tie-break to determine conference tournament seeding. Underwood was given the three seed because they had lost more sets throughout the season than Tri-Center and Treynor. Treynor edged Tri-Center for the #1 seed based on alphabetical order.

 

Tri-Center coach Brian Wedemyer says this year's tourney is shaping up to be one of the most competetive that the conference has had in several seasons. The top four seeds will host first round games beginning on Monday. Winners of the first round will head to Tri-Center High School on Tuesday for the 2nd round. The championship and consolation matches are held at Tri-Center on Thursday, October 11th.

 

Coach Wedemeyer says the play of setter Emily Baatz has been a big factor in his squad's success. He also points out that Shelby Sullivan and Malory Christiansen have had big seasons for the Trojans. Coach Wedemeyer lists Anna Spomer as the most consistent defensive player.

EXIRA-EHK FOOTBALL CLOSING IN ON UNDEFEATED REGULAR SEASON


(Exira) Exira-EHK is three wins away from completing an undefeated regular season. A 9-0 record would be the first for the Spartan's in their short history. Coach Tom Petersen says the main focus is on continuing to improve before the playoffs. 

 

Exira-EHK prepares for a 1-5 Villisca team this week, a squad that will feature a passing offense. It's a similar type of attack as the one Exira-EHK was able to limit last week in their lopsided with over Coon Rapids-Bayard.

 

Exira-EHK's regular season opponents the rest of the way have combined for only three wins. A strong running game has once again fueled a quality season for the Spartans. Exira-EHK ranks #4 in the state in rushing yardage this season.

ATLANTIC FOOTBALL RECORD BOOK MAY NEED UPDATED SOON


(Atlantic) As the 2012 Atlantic Trojan football team continues to try and fight their way into the playoffs, a couple of seniors are putting up big time numbers.

 

Quarterback Harrison Hoegh leads Class 3A in passing yardage this season with 1,625 yards. Much of the production has come from throwing the ball to Sam Markham whose 752 receiving yards is also a state best. The dynamic duo is putting themselves in good company when it comes to former Atlantic Trojan standouts. Hoegh needs only 192 yards to pass Bret Meyer's 2002 mark of 1,817. The record that Markham is closing in on has stood for 41 years. Al Wernimont set the record in 1971 when he recorded 814 yards.

 

Atlantic, and these two very productive seniors, have three games remaining. Atlantic travels to Perry in Week 7, they host Harlan in Week 8, and welcome Glenwood to town in Week 9.

STRAIGHT SETS WIN PUTS IKM-MANNING AT 21-5


(Manning) IKM-Manning has won 16 of their last 17 volleyball matches including a three game sweep of Boyer Valley last night. The Wolves had their 15 match win streak snapped last week when they fell to MVAO, so coach Kathy Lage says it was nice to get back in the win column. The Wolves have been in the win column 21 times this season compared to only five losses.

 

IKM-Manning's sweep of Boyer Valley was fueled by Kaylee Blake's 9 kill and 7 ace effort. Coach Lage says the Wolves also got good production from Allyson Koccur and Katelyn Schechinger. Koccur had 14 assists and Schechinger posted 7 kills.

 

The win moves IKM-Manning another step closer to the conference championship. They've run the table so far in the conference and have two games remaining against Western Valley teams.

NODAWAY VALLEY STRINGS TOGETHER THIRD STRAIGHT IN VOLLEYBALL


(Greenfield) Nodaway Valley notched their sixth win in the last nine matches with a 3-1 victory over Lenox on Tuesday.

 

Sidney Reeves posted 12 kills and had a season high six aces. Megan McIntosh added 8 kills in 14 attempts.

 

The match marked the final conference match of the season for Nodaway Valley as they'll play in the conference tournament beginning next week. The late surge has helped the team finish among the leaders in the conference behind East Union and Bedford.

 

The Wolverines complete the Pride of Iowa regular season schedule with an 8-14 overall record.

HIGH FLYING BOMBERS GROUNDED WITH BYE WEEK


(Adair) Week 7 of the season is when Adair-Casey was originally scheduled to take on East Greene, but with East Greene having merged with Jefferson-Scranton/Paton-Churdan it creates an opening on Adair-Casey's schedule.

 

The bye week comes at a time when Adair-Casey's had been rolling. The Bombers have won 13 of their last 14 regular season games and posted a season high 537 total yards in a Week 6 Homecoming win over Grandview Park Baptist (64-6). Quarterback Gunnar Dinkla threw for a season best 130 yards and running back Clayton Plowman had a career best 259 rushing yards. Plowman's big night puts him over the 1,000 yard mark for the third straight year. The Junior is one of only ten player's in 8-player history to rush for 4,000 yards in a career. He is 73 yards shy of moving into 6th place on the career rushing list.

 

Defensively Adair-Casey held Grandview Park Baptist to only 23 rushing yards and 136 yards total. All-State defensive end had another monster night with 5 of his 10 tackles being quarterback sacks.

 

Adair-Casey reaches their off week with a 6-1 record. They await 1-6 Ankeny Christian Academy in two weeks.
