(Red Oak) Red Oak senior Kate Walker scored 27 points to lead the Tigers past Atlantic 63-49 in a Hawkeye Ten Conference girls’ basketball game at Red Oak Friday night. Walker scored 21 of her 27 in the first half.
The game started off close with both teams exchanging leads. Red Oak tied the game at 14-14 on Walker’s layup as time expired in the first quarter. However, the complexion of the game changed quickly after that.
The Tigers started the second quarter with their foot on the gas outscoring the Trojans 26-5 into the middle of the third quarter, and held leads of 34-19 at the half, 49-29 after three quarters and 63-40 after regulation.
Red Oak’s 6-2 senior post Grace Blomstedt added 10-points, and Angela Mahoney pitched in 8.
Skye Thompson led Atlantic with 15-points and Stephanie Sandbothe scored 12.
Atlantic falls to 6-12 on the season. The Tigers extend their record to 14-4.
(Oakland) In what has been a long season for the Riverside boys, the Bulldogs were finally able to have a little bit of fun on the basketball court with leads on three occasions in the first half (including by as many as five at one point) and trimming a deficit from double figures down to four early in the 4th quarter, but it was Audubon that got the last laugh Friday, winning 74-58.
For the Wheelers it’s their 5th win of the season. They used good three-point and free-throw shooting to stay in the game early before using good all-around play in the 2nd half to pull away. Joseph Remsburg provided a big boost off the bench in the 2nd quarter draining 3 three-pointers. Audubon’s bench combined for 27 points. Audubon made five from long range in the first half, with Jalen Nelson and Tyler Riebhoff also connecting from deep, plus sank 11/13 from the charity stripe led by Mitchell Nelsen’s 7/8 effort with nine first half points.
Riverside led 26-23 with just over 3:30 to play in the first half when Bulldog starter Jake Novotny was forced to the bench with foul trouble. Novotny had 12 points up to that point, mostly in the 2nd quarter. After he left the game, Audubon closed out the first half on a 13-4 run to lead 36-30 at halftime and never trailed in the 2nd half.
The Wheelers built the lead up to as large as 11 on multiple occasions in the third quarter, but a strong Riverside surge to close the quarter narrowed the gap. Tanner Storrow scored six of his nine points in the third and the team carried the momentum of his runner in the lane at the end of the third quarter into the 4th to close to within 51-47. From there Audubon would score seven of the game’s next ten points and put the game away.
M. Nelsen led Audubon with 17 points and Andrew Blomme scored 11. Most of Blomme’s damage came late in the game, as he was held under wraps by Riverside’s zone early. Remsburg ended up with 9 points in limited minutes. Jalen Nelson and Tyre Vokt each scored 8, Reibhoff had 7, Micky Williamson 6, with Josh Lange and Lake Hacker contributing 4 each.
Tyler Krueger had a huge 2nd half for Riverside and scored a game high 23. Novotny played sparingly with foul trouble in the 2nd half and finished with 11, Storrow 9, Braeton Moore 5, Tim Brink 4, Dylan Charlet 3, and Mason Emge 2.
Both teams shot well from the free-throw line with Riverside hitting 13/16 and
Audubon 21/29. The Wheelers (who won a combined total of two games the last two seasons) are now 5-11. Riverside’s record slips to 0-16.
(Oakland) Audubon won a low scoring, competitive girls basketball game, over Riverside Friday by a football score of 21-14.
The Wheelers were without leading scorer Emily Haubrich who sprained an ankle this week while the Bulldogs had several players battling the dreaded flu. Morgan Gust got Audubon off to a good start nailing a three-pointer and a long two on the Wheeler’s first two possessions of the game, but the well ran dry for both teams after that for several minutes.
Audubon led 5-0 after one quarter, but Riverside narrowly won the low scoring second and third quarters 7-6 and 5-4 to close to within 15-12 going to the 4th. Both teams went scoreless for the first few minutes of the final frame which led to a sense that whichever team scored next might get the win. That team that scored next was Audubon, at the free throw line, to go up 17-12 and eventually 18-12. The six point cushion seemed like ample breathing room (and eventually proved to be enough) in a game that featured just four made field goals by Riverside and eight from Audubon.
Morgan Gust scored 9 of her game high 12 points in the first half to lead Audubon. Kiara Sporer scored 4, Courtney Rudolph 3, and Kaitlin Schultes 2. Riverside got 6 points from Taylor Frain, 4 from Sheyenne Smith, and 2 each from Bri Alf and Jamie Hackett.
The Bulldogs drop to 1-17 overall while Audubon is 9-8.
(Red Oak) Atlantic and Red Oak square off for the second time around Friday night in a girls’ basketball game at Red Oak.
The (13-4) Tigers won the first meeting on December 9, 49-44 which was the beginning of a 10-game winning streak that lasted all the way to January 13 when they fell to Kuemper 50-49. Atlantic (6-11) is coming off of a 65-59 loss to Treynor on Monday night.
Atlantic Head Coach Kelly Juhl says the key will be controlling Red Oak’s two leading scorers, Kate Walker, averaging 19.1 points per game, and Grace Blomstedt, who is averaging 16.1 per contest.
“We are going to try and throw a variety of defenses at Kate and Grace and start in a man and see if Tiffany Williams can keep Kate in front of her and matchup Catherine Leonard with Grace inside”, stated Juhl. “Blomstedt gets a lot of her points on second chance shots as a result of rebounds and put backs and we hope Catherine can box her off and keep her off the block.”
Coach Juhl says offensively the Trojans will have to attack the zone and get the ball inside.
Erin Olsen leads the team in scoring averaging 11.9 points a game, Tiffany Williams, 6.3, Skye Thompson, 6.1, Stephanie Sandbothe, 5.9, Catherine Leonard, 5.5, and Macey Schmitt, 4.3 points per contest.
Tip-off is set for around 7:40 p.m., we will have the broadcast on 95.7 F.M.
(Avoca) AHSTW wrestles against Tri-Center and East Mills tonight with a goal of getting to 20 dual wins on the season. They are 19-6 on the season entering tonight.
The Vikings picked up three key dual wins over MVAO, Missouri Valley, and Riverside on Tuesday night. The team has gone from around .500 a year ago to one of the top programs in the WIC this season. They haven't won 20 dual matches in a season for 10 years.
113 pounder Joel Becerra is 26-9, at 26 Christian Danker is 19-7, Nathan Eggers is 21-10 at 132, Zach Hagadon 12-3 at 156, Timmy Barr is 25-8 at 160, at 170 Dustin Engel is 28-4, and 195 pounder Erik Jorgensen is 29-7.
The team is coming off of a 6th place finish at the Louisville, Nebraska tournament. They came away with four top four finishers, but it was a 5th place showing that caught the eye of coach McCarthy. Stevie Mitchell was able to come from behind and win his 5th place matchup with a pin.
AHSTW will go to the Audubon invite on Saturday and then compete at Sectionals the following weekend.
(Audubon) Audubon hung on for dear life and came away with a 53-51 win over Tri-Center Tuesday to sweep the season series against the Trojans.
Kiara Sporrer and Morgan Gust each scored 15 points as the Wheelers dodged a late bullett with Tri-Center missing a layup in the final seconds that would have forced overtime. In addition to Sporrer and Gust combining for 30 points, Emily Haubrich added 10. Haubrich leads the team on the season averaging over 14 points per game. The Wheelers are 8-8 on the season with most of their losses being to teams that have five or fewer losses all year.
The Wheelers will take on Riverside on Friday. KSOM will have the broadcast. Riverside enters at 1-14, but Audubon coach Kim Subbert says they'll be a tougher challenge than the first time around when Audubon won 44-11. That's because Taylor Frain has returned to the lineup for the Bulldogs. She is the team's second leading scorer and was out with an injury when the two squads met in December.
(Area) High School wrestling season is ramping up as the postseason nears.
It’s a busy night Thursday for high school wrestling in the area:
AHSTW, East Mills are at- Tri-Center. Riverside, Logan-Magnolia, and Audubon all go to West Monona. Kuemper Catholic welcomes Griswold, Treynor, and Coon Rapids-Bayard. Harlan is at Glenwood. Creston/O-M visits St. Albert with Southwest Iowa also in that double dual. Lewis Central and Atlantic/CAM are at Red Oak. Nodaway Valley will host SE Warren and SW Valley.
KS95.7 FM will have coverage of this weekend’s Hawkeye Ten Conference Wrestling Tournament in Glenwood. The following Saturday is the sectional tournament. KSOM will have reports from the Class 1A sectional site at Audubon. KS95.7 will have updates from a Class 2A sectional tournament at Harlan.
(Neola) Tri-Center held off a late Audubon run to improve to 10-5 on the season, downing the Wheelers Tuesday night 68-60.
Sam Sorenson knocked down 11/15 from the free throw line as the Trojans won their 5th game of the season decided by less than ten points. Sorenson impacted the game not only with his 29 points, but also seven rebounds, four assists, and two steals. Dion Coffey shot 7-8 from the field and finished with a season high 17 points. Tri-Center as a whole posted one of their most efficient nights all year with 56% from the field (23/41), 54.5% from three-point range (6/11), and 59% at the free throw line (16/27).
The Audubon win puts the Trojans at 9-4 in Western Iowa Conference play. They trail only unbeaten IKM-Manning and one-loss Treynor in the conference standings. They are tied with AHSTW and the teams will meet again on February 6th. Tri-Center lost to AHSTW 63-36 in their first meeting.
Tri-Center will travel to conference rival Underwood on Friday. They beat Underwood 60-48 in December. The Trojans have five of their next six games on the road.
(Adair) With a 63-58 win over Boyer Valley, Adair-Casey has won five of the last six boys basketball games.
Connor Westergaard knocked down five first half three-pointers and finished with 21 for the game. That's a new career high for the sophomore who is shooting over 37% from long range on the season. Coach Mark Emgarten says everybody played well in the Boyer Valley win and notes the team stepped up on the defensive end as the game continued.
The win marks the 3rd time this season that Adar-Casey has avenged a prior loss. The Bombers had lost their first meeting with Boyer Valley 77-57. They also salvaged season splits with Coon Rapids-Bayard and Glidden-Ralston. They'll get an opportunity for payback against Paton-Churdan when the teams meet again next week.
On the season the top three scorers for Adair-Casey all shoot 55.9% or better. Emmitt Whealtey leads the team averaging 20.5 points per game. Colton Sargent and Charlie Terry are both averaging double figures.
(Avoca) For the first time all season AHSTW has won back to back games. The Lady Vikes downed Heartland Christian 78-24 on Monday and followed it up with a 44-37 win over Missouri Valley Tuesday.
The Missouri Valley win by seven points is a 20 point swing from losing to Mo. Valley by 13 when they played in early December. Coach Walker says the big difference was limiting turnovers. AHSTW is now 6-10 on the season with six regular season games remaining.
A big key in the two victories to start the week has been the high scoring of senior Danika Grobe. She posted 31 points on Monday and had 16 more on Tuesday to close to within 31 points of reaching 1,000 for her career. Morgan Eckmann and Jaycie Schueman were also in double figures scoring against Missouri Valley with 10 each. Eckmann added 11 rebounds while Schueman posted 8 steals. Schueman ranks in the top 10 in Class 2A with 64 steals on the season.
AHSTW will face Treynor on Friday before taking on Audubon next Tuesday.
(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.
(Elk Horn) Exira-EHK didn’t allow a single point for the first 4:15 of the game and scored 33 first quarter points as they rolled to a 17-0 record. The Spartans held quarter leads of 33-10, 47-13, 58-13, and won by a final of 70-19.
Mara Burmeister torched the nets early with a dozen first quarter points and finished with 21.The Spartan starters played sparingly in the 2nd half,
Exira-EHK was able to execute their game plan defensively, allowing less than 20 points for the 6th time this season.
In addition to Burmeister’s 21, Maggie Rasmussen scored 11, Sophia Peppers 10, Rachel Smith 8, Rose Anderson and Kennedy Madsen each had 7, Alex Petersen 4, and Kealey Nelson 2.
The bulk of CAM’s scoring came from Felicity Jackson who knocked down two fourth quarter three’s and finished with 10 points. Mackenzie Schwenke and Ericka Stender each had three while Mackenzie Cross scored one.
Exira-EHK is 17-0 with remaining games against Coon Rapids-Bayard, West Harrison, Glidden-Ralston, and Adair-Casey. CAM falls to 9-9.
(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.
(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.
(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.
(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.
(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.
(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 PrepVolleyball.com, 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.
