Exira-EHK Boys use big early run to beat CAM

(Elk Horn) A 22-2 run that started midway through the first quarter and continued into the 2nd quarter separated Exira-EHK from CAM Tuesday night in boys basketball.


After the game was tied at 6-all in the opening minutes, the Spartans pushed the lead up to 18 points by halftime and never looked back in a convincing 60-32 win.

Jake Paulsen scored 11 points in the first quarter to help Exira-EHK break the game open.



Brady Hansen scored 11 of his game high 19 points in the 2nd half including a key three midway through the third that got the Spartans back on track. 


CAM cut the deficit to as close as 12 early in third quarter, but Exira-EHK responed. Tate Winther posted a team high 18 points for CAM, but no other Cougar had more than three. They fall to 2-15 on the season. Exira-EHK sweeps the season series and improves to 10-7 overall.

Young players begin to emerge for CAM Boys Basketball

(Anita) The CAM Cougars have just a handful of regular season boys basketball match ups left in the regular season to tune up for district play in mid-February.


The Cougars have mixed experience with youth in the most recent stretch of the season. Senior Tate Winther has emerged as a top scorer and rebounded for the team. Coach Brian Fogleman says, “He has the tools and the potential to be the best post players in the conference if he wants to be.” He posted 18 points and 14 rebounds in last Tuesday’s win over Woodbine. Tate and fellow senior Tanner Winther rank 1-2 on the team in scoring average at 10.1 and 8.6 points per game respectively.


Meanwhile freshman Nick Holste has seen some action in the last few games. He scored 12 points and made 4-6 from three-point range in a loss to Charter Oak-Ute Saturday. Fellow freshman Thomas Hensley is also working his way into the rotation in the 2nd half of the season. Sophomores Brandon Flathers, Marcus Daugherty, and Austin Chester have also all seen varsity playing time.


The first time CAM met Exira-EHK the Cougars trailed by just one at halftime before losing by nine. This time around coach Fogleman says the team will need to take better care of the basketball and be more physical.

Five Games Separate Exira-EHK Girls from Perfect Regular Season

(Elk Horn) Exira-EHK has not only won every girls basketball game they've played this season, they haven't had any close calls either. The Spartan's narrowest margins of victory this season have been 22 points against Paton-Churdan and 20 against Adair-Casey. 


As the Spartans eye perfection for the first time in their five year history, they have remaining games against CAM, Coon Rapids-Bayard, West Harrison, Glidden-Ralston, and Adair-Casey. (Exira went undefeated and won the state title during the 2009-10 season) The 5th rated team in the state for Class 1A holds an average margin of victory at 40.1 points per game. They allow, on average, only 26 points a night. In fact, in 64 quarters played this season, Exira-EHK has only given up double digit points in a quarter just 14 times. In their last game they held their opponent to just three points over the final 24 minutes of the game. 


In addition to the team's top notch defense, the offense has been explosive. They've failed to top 60 points on just two occasions and have a season high of 85. It's been a balanced effort on the offensive end with Rachel Smith averaging 13 points per game, Sophia Peppers 12.8, Mara Burmeister 11.9, Maggie Rasmussen 9.1 and Kennedy Madsen 7.3.


They'll host a CAM team on Tuesday night that they previously defeated 57-25 in Anita prior to the holiday break. KSOM will have play-by-play coverage of the RVC Doubleheader with pregame starting at 5:50.

Treynor Tops Atlantic in Girls Hoops

(Atlantic) Treynor’s 13-2 third quarter run lifted them past Atlantic 65-59 in girls basketball at Atlantic Monday night.


The Cardinals opened up a 15-10 first quarter lead.  Erin Olsen’s three point basket for Atlantic tied the game at 19-19 in the second quarter. But Kaylie Christensen clicked off seven straight points for Treynor contributing to the Cardinals 28-27 halftime lead. 


Skye Thompson’s bucket gave the Trojans a 29-28 third quarter lead and a three by Olsen and Macey Schmitt’s two point basket put the Trojans up 34-30. However, that would be the last time Atlantic would lead.


Treynor guards Madison Paulsen and Laura Hempel combined for 23-three second half points which gave the Cardinals an offensive boost.  Treynor led 50-43 after three quarters and extended that to twelve in the fourth quarter. However, three point baskets down the stretch by Olsen and Schmitt made it interesting before the Cardinals sealed the contest 65-59.


Kaylie Christensen led Treynor with 19-points, Laura Hempel, 16 and Madison Paulsen knocked down 15.


Erin Olsen scored 19-points for Atlantic, Macey Schmitt and Tiffany Williams finished with 12, and Catherine Leonard added 11.

Treynor extends their record to 12-2. Atlantic falls to 6-11.

CAM Girls Travel to #5 Exira-EHK

(Elk Horn) The CAM girls basketball team will be on action on KSOM Tuesday night when they oppose the 5th rated Exira-EHK Spartans.


Exira-EHK is a perfect 16-0 with an average margin of victory of 40.1 points per game. 9-8 CAM has the unenviable task of trying to derail the Spartan’s perfect season. Cougar coach Joe Wollum says Exira-EHK can attack you from seemingly all angles.



The Cougars have put together a nice stretch over the past month to get their win loss record above .500. A big factor in that has been winning the close games. On the season, the team has gone 6-1 in games decided by six points or less.


Felicity Jackson leads CAM in scoring at 15.4 points per game. Senior Tierney Sothman is tops on the team in rebounding with 130 boards through 17 games.

Spartans go for season sweep of CAM in boys basketball Tuesday

(Elk Horn) 9-7 Exira-EHK goes for their 6th win in the last nine games when they host 2-14 CAM Tuesday in a boys basketball game that will air on KSOM.


The Spartans started 4-4 on the season, but have only lost three games since the first week of January. The last two times out have been strong showings for the Spartans. They beat Charter Oak-Ute last Tuesday night 69-37 and lost to unbeaten Ar-We-Va 66-47 on Saturday. Coach Newton says despite the loss to the top 10 rated Rockets, his team was able to match their opponents intensity level. 


Coach Doug Newton says point guard Jared Hansen’s near 2-1 assist to turnover ratio has been a turning point. Both Drew Buckholdt and Jake Paulsen each average 12 points per game, with Paulsen shooting over 60% from the field.


ra-EHK’s first meeting with CAM they led by three at halftime and opened things up with a big third quarter. Coach Newton says getting out to an early lead would be a big bonus for his team.

Iowa State Announces Addition of Top-30 Recruit Jess Schaben

(Ames)  She was already a Cyclone, A Harlan Cyclone, and Jess Schaben will remain a Cyclone. Iowa State announced the addition of the 6-2 outside hitter after Schaben accepted her admission to Iowa State University.


“Jess is a special volleyball player,” Iowa State head coach Christy Johnson-Lynch said. “She has an elite arm and I believe she will be able to terminate against any team in the country. She reminds me a bit of Victoria Hurtt, she’s got the potential to be a go-to offensive player for us.”


Schaben, the No. 27 recruit in the class of 2015 according to, and a Third-Team Under Armour All-American, led Harlan to back-to-back Class 4A state championships, being named the All-Tournament Team captain on both occasions. She averaged 5.33 kills per set as a senior at a .484 hitting percentage and averaged 2.11 digs per season. That followed up a junior campaign with 5.51 kills per set and 2.43 digs per set.


“I love her ability to pass and play defense, especially given her height,” Johnson-Lynch added. “She is incredibly competitive and is used to carrying a huge load for her teams. Jess is not going to shy away from any sort of competition, and I believe she will relish the opportunity to train and compete at the highest level of college volleyball.”


A three-time All-State honoree in volleyball, Schaben is also a star for the Harlan Cyclone basketball team, earning All-State honors twice, leading Harlan to last season’s 4A state title and earning All-Tournament Team honors and continuing to lead the No. 1 Cyclones this season while averaging 14.4 points per game and 7.0 rebounds per contest. She also competed in track and field, finishing fourth in the high jump at the 2014 state championships.


Schaben is also a start on the club level for River City Juniors, having made multiple All-Tournament Teams at some of the biggest events in the country, including the 2014 Junior Volleyball Association (JVA) World Challenge.


The addition of Schaben is the sixth and final one for ISU’s 2015 class, capping off one of the best incoming classes in the country. Johnson-Lynch and her staff landed three top-35 prospects in setter Remington Bowman (No. 22), Schaben, an outside hitter (No. 27) and right side hitter Hannah Bailey (No. 33). Iowa State also welcomes the addition of two of the top recruits from Iowa in 2015 in setter/defensive specialist Hali Hillegas of Charles City and Abigail Phillips of Marion. The Cyclones have also added one of the top junior prospects in the United Kingdom in middle blocker Grace Lazard, who enrolled in classes at the start of the Spring 2015 semester, and will be eligible to practice with the Cyclones at the start of spring volleyball.

Atlantic girls end three game slide with win over Clarinda

(Clarinda) The Atlantic girl’s ended their three game skid Friday night with a 49-40 win on the road at Clarinda. Atlantic senior Macey Schmitt’s four straight free throws late in the fourth quarter helped seal the deal for the Trojans now 6-10 on the season.

Clarinda led just once. Jaedra Moses popped in a three point basket right out of the gate; however that would be the last time the Cardinals would lead. The Trojans ran off nine consecutive points on Catherine Leonard’s two point bucket followed by Macey Schmitt’s three, and back to back two point baskets by Tiffany Williams pushed Atlantic to a 9-3 lead. Abby Brown knocked down a two to pull within four, and the Cardinals trailed 13-8 at the end of the first quarter.  The Trojans led 19-16 at the half and 30-24 after three quarters.

The Cardinals were never out of it. They started the fourth quarter on a 7-0 run and narrowed the Trojan lead to 33-31 on Klarissa McElroy’s three point bucket. However, back to back baskets by Leonard and Stephanie Sandbothes pushed the lead to 37-31. 

The Cardinals were forced to foul late, and the Trojans sealed the win with free throws down the stretch.

Erin Olsen led Atlantic with 11 points, Tiffany Williams finished with 10, Macey Schmitt 9, Catherine Leonard 7, and Skye Thompson finished the night with 6-points.

Jaedra Moses led Clarinda with 16-points, Abby Brown, 7, Allison Fast, 5, Kayla Rogers, 4, Klarissa McElroy, 3, Baillee Warren and Nicole Johnson two each and Lauren Bair knocked in one.

Atlantic Girls end three game slide with win over Clarinda The Trojans go to 6-10 on the season. Clarinda falls to 4-11.

Momentum Builds for Adair-Casey Boys late in Season

(Adair) Adair-Casey will try to make it four straight boys basketball wins when they meet Glidden-Ralston Friday night. A win would put the Bomber's record at an even .500 (7-7) for the first time all season. 


After starting the season just 1-4, coach Mark Emgarten says one area of improvement has been the team cutting down their turnovers. He'd like to see better overall rebounding as the next step in the development of a fairly young group. Outside of three senior starters (Cole Reha, Emmitt Wheatley, and Charlie Terry) the team starts two sophomores (Connor Westergaard and Colton Sargent) along with playing sophomore Josh Reed and junior Wyatt Vais off the bench. 


Last Friday Adair-Casey avenged a previous 61-40 loss to Coon Rapids-Bayard with a 55-47 win against the Crusaders, a 29 point swing. The matchup with Glidden Ralston will give Adair-Casey another chance to avenge a prior setback as they lost to the Wildcats 51-50 the first time around. 


Beyond Friday, the Bombers have only lost to one of the next six teams on their schedule which sets up a potentially momentum building run into the district tournament. 


Emmitt Wheatley leads Adair-Casey averaging 20 points per game on the season. Colton Sargent contributes 12 points per contest.

Riverside Wrestlers head to John J. Harris Friday and Saturday

(Oakland) Riverside will be among the area wrestling programs competing in the annual John J. Harris Wrestling Tournament which gets underway Friday and runs through Saturday.


Riverside has had a busy dual schedule this season with 33 matches already on the season. They sport a 22-11 record including a 3rd place finish at last weekends Mount Ayr Dual Tournament.


Coach Casey Conover says the team is enjoying the break this week with nothing on the schedule until the festivities get underway in Corning Friday afternoon.


Coach Conover says the main emphasis at the John Harris tournament is on improving so they can peek in two and half weeks.


He lists Tatem Bluml, Tucker Bluml, Jacob Vogel, and Coy Maher as some potential candidates to make some noise this weekend.



Tatem Bluml is 38-3, Tucker Bluml 34-2, Vogel 24-2, and Maher 32-9. Tatem Bluml is ranked 5th at 106, Tucker Bluml 10th at 132, and Vogel 7th at 138.


Riverside has just 6 upperclassmen in their lineup with 2 seniors, 4 juniors, and the rest underclassmen.

AHSTW Hits 24/36 Free Throws in Victory at Underwood

(Avoca) AHSTW improved to 9-3 overall and 8-3 in the conference with a 64-55 win over Underwood Tuesday in boys basketball. The Vikings have gone 3-1 in games decided by 10 points or less this season, with their only such loss coming to Griswold last week, 44-36. 


In the Underwood win the team led 27-12 at halftime and appeared on their way to a route, but Underwood rallied back late. The Eagles scored 14 in the third quarter and 29 in the fourth to make a game out of it. AHSTW though shot well from the free throw line down the stretch including 7/8 from senior Henry Nagengast to get the win. The Vikings made 24/36 attempts on the night, a vast improvement from their 16/31 showing at the line in a 14 point win against Logan-Magnolia on Friday. 


Stephen Jacobsen led the way on Tuesday with 16 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, and two steals. RJ Harris added 13 points while Lee Whyte scored 12. 


Whyte is coming off of a season high on Friday night when he scored 27 points against Logan-Magnolia. In that game he amassed 1,000 points for his career, becoming the 3rd player in school history to do so joining Charlie Pattee and Joss Petersen. On the season Whyte is averaging 17.7 points per game which leads the Western Iowa Conference.


AHSTW has a big game coming up against IKM-Manning on Friday. They lost to the Wolves 69-35 on December 12th. Coach GG Harris says the focus this time around is competing.

Fast Start Leads Exira-EHK Past Charter Oak-Ute in Boys Hoops

(Elk Horn) Exira-EHK scored on 7 of first 8 possessions in a 69-37 triumph over Charter Oak-Ute Tuesday night. Coach Doug Newton says the team was scoring from a wide variety of areas (inside, outside, free throw line, half court offense, transition) early in the game. 


Dating back to a 61-52 win over CAM on December 19th, the Spartans have won six of their last nine games. In that span coach Newton says a lot of different players have stepped up and noted Jared Hansen's ability to take care of the basketball has been a huge plus. 


Exira-EHK has three players averaging in double figures scoring this season. Drew Peppers and Jake Paulsen each average 13 points per game while Drew Buckholdt contributes 11.5. 


The Spartans are 9-6 on the season. Next up for them is a matchup with undefeated Ar-We-Va on Saturday. They made a 2nd half upset bid but eventually lost by 16 to the conference leading Rockets the first time around.

Atlantic and Kuemper square off in Boys Hawkeye Ten Conference Basketball tonight

(Carroll) Atlantic, (9-3), and (5-6), Kuemper square off in boy's hoops at Kuemper tonight.


The Trojans won the first meeting on January 2, 69-59. Kuemper jumped out to a 10-0 lead, before the Trojans outscored the Knights 58-44 the last three quarters to earn the victory.


"We shot the ball really well late in the game in that first meeting," explained Atlantic Head Coach Alan Jenkins. "We really had to battle and grind it out the next two quarters. When we got to the fourth, we were able to stretch the thing and get a little comfort zone."


Jenkins said, "We know we're going to get their best shot tonight. And it wasn't easy the first time when we played them. Obviously we're going to have to be sharp for 32-minutes on both ends of the floor."


The Knights have three players that average double figures.


"Matt Dentlinger is a big body guy that can really stretch the floor and has the ability to shoot from the perimeter," said Jenkins. "Jacob Schaefer and Adam Schleisman are also averaging in double figures. They are a tough matchup and very skilled when it comes to dribbling, cutting and passing, so we are going to have to be very good defensively."


Jenkins says offensively they have to take advantage of their matchups.


"Defensively, Kuemper will force us to make shots from the outside," said Jenkins. "We will get some looks, but we don't want to become reliant on it, we still want some good looks inside."


Much like Kuemper, Atlantic has three players averaging double figures. Junior Ryan Hawkins, the Trojans 6-6 post, is averaging 17.8 points a game and nine rebounds, 6-7 sophomore, Garrett Franken, averages 16.8 points a game and nine rebounds. And Trojan point guard Joey Walker, is averaging 12-points a game, while shooting 49-percent from the field, and 56-percent from the 3-point line.


Matt Dentlinger, Kuemper's 6-6 sophomore leads the team in scoring with 14.7 points, seven rebounds, and three blocked shots per game. Jacob Schaefer, is averaging 11-points and Adam Schleisman, 10.8.


The game is slated to tip-off at 7:30. The game will be broadcast on 95.7 f.m. and, pregame starts at 7:20 p.m.
