ATLANTIC NIPS DENISON/SCHLESWIG IN EXTRA INNINGS


(Atlantic) Logan Steffens RBI single in the bottom of the 8th inning lifted Atlantic past Denison/Schleswig 4-3 in a Hawkeye Ten Conference baseball game at Atlantic Thursday night. The Trojans scored four runs on eight hits and committed two errors.

 

The Monarchs jumped out to a one-nothing lead in the top of the third.  Devin Platt singled and crossed home plate on a Trojan error. But, Atlantic bounced right back in the bottom of the inning to tie the game at one a piece on Chad Christiansen’s RBI single.  Denison/Schleswig regained the lead in the top of the fifth inning when Devin Platt knocked a two-RBI single to give the Monarch’s a 3-1 advantage. But in the sixth it was Chad Christiansen again with a base hit that scored two runs to tie contest at 3-3.

 

In the bottom of the eighth Dalton Franken singled, advanced to second on Brendon Holmes walk and Logan Steffens stepped up and drove the ball to deep centerfield scoring Franken from third base for the winning run.

 

Franken ended the night with a double and a single and one run scored. Chad Christiansen had two singles and three RBI’s. Sam Markham had two base hits, Brody Petersen hit a double, and Kray Lukehart had a base hit for the Trojans. Tristen Benn picked up the win on the mound. He allowed two runs on five hits, struck out four, walked two and hit two batters.

 

The Monarchs scored three runs on five hits. Devin Platt had two hits and two RBI’s, and Derek Krohnke, Brayden Schurke, each singled for the 10-12 Monarchs.

BAUDLER'S THREE RUN SHOT HELPS LIFT WOLVERINE BASEBALL TEAM


(Adair) A five run 1st inning kick started the Nodaway Valley baseball team and the Wolverines never trailed in their 9-6 win at Adair-Casey Wednesday night.

 

In that big first inning Jackson Lamb delivered a two RBI double and Aaron Baudler blasted a three run homer. Adair-Casey clawed back with two unearned runs in the bottom of inning. Jordan Wheatley and Gunnar Dinkla each scored on consecutive balk calls. Over the next two innings the only offense for either side was Alex Umbaugh's third inning run on a Gunnar Dinkla RBI single. Another big inning came for Nodaway Valley in the fourth when they scored three runs to take an 8-3 advantage. Ryan Williams, Zach Eblen, and Trevor Jameson would all score in the inning. Eblen, Jameson and Lamb had the RBI's. Adair-Casey would have another answer though, this time in the fifth inning with three runs to cut the defecit to 8-6. Brennan Leonard, Alex Umbaugh's, and Jordan Wheatley had consecutive hits to start the frame and Logan Dinkla delivered a two RBI double that nearly cleared the left field fence. The score would hold at 8-6 until the seventh inning when Baley Scantz would walk and eventually plate a run on a Jameson RBI. Jameson who was hitting a Class 2A leading .566 coming into the night, raised his average with a 3-4 day. Adair-Casey needed three runs in the bottom of the seventh to keep the game alive but Nodaway Valley senior struck out the side. Williams fanned seven batters in three innings of relief.

 

Nodaway Valley goes to 10-9 with the win. Adair-Casey is 2-13.

NODAWAY VALLEY SOFTBALL TEAM HOLDS OFF ADAIR-CASEY RALLY


The Nodaway Valley softball team led from start to finish in their twelfth victory of the year.  Josie Carter got the Wolverine offense started early as she led off the first inning with a single and scored on Paige McElfish's towering fly ball to deep left field that resulted in an Adair-Casey error.  Carter would go on to have a 4-5 day at the plate scoring two of Nodaway Valley's 9 runs.  The big inning for the Wolverines came in the 4th when Rachel Jacobsen, Sidney Hohertz, and Carter had 3 consecutive hits to start the inning.  They would all score in the 4th along with Sadie Harter and McElfish thanks to three Adair-Casey errors.  After the 5 run 4th inning, Nodaway Valley led 8-0 and they would extend their lead to 9-0 in the sixth when Sidney Reeves singled home McElfish.

 

Adair-Casey's offense would come to life in the bottom of the 6th to make a game out of it.  Robin Waholvd and Brenna Westergard single to start the inning and a one out walk to Emma Ferguson loaded the bases.  From there Brianna Mulbach drove in a run on a fielders choice, Paige Kingery hit an RBI single, and Kayla Anderson reached on an error.  The big hit in the inning came off the bat of Katie Clark with a 3 run home run to make it a 9-6 game but that's all the closer the Bombers would get as they went down in order in the 7th.

 

Nodaway Valley improved to 12-17 on the season heading into their game with Mt. Ayr tonight.  Adair-Casey drops to 2-22.

EXIRA-EHK BASEBALL TEAM SHUTS OUT ADAIR-CASEY


(Elk Horn) Exira-EHK clinched a fourth straight Rolling Hills Conference baseball crown with their 2-0 win over Adair-Casey on Tuesday. The Spartans improve to 8-1 in the conference with only one league game remaining on their schedule. Glidden-Ralston and CAM are each 5-3.

 

Tyler Jacobsen struck out 14 Adair-Casey Bomber batters and only allowed four baserunners all night. Alex Umbaugh had a single in the first and Gunnar Dinkla contributed a base hit in the seventh, but outside of that the lone runners came on a dropped third strike and a base on balls. Jacobsen improves to 6-1 on the seaon and lowers his ERA to .60. Jacobsen outperformed a good effort by losing pitcher Gunnar Dinkla. Dinkla gave up only four hits in six innings with one walk and four strikeouts.

 

Jared Hansen led the Spartans at the plate with two of the teams four hits. Austin Malloy and Alex Amaral collected the other two singles which came in consecutive order to start the sixth inning. Malloy would eventually score after Adair-Casey failed to turn a double play on a Hansen ground ball. Amaral was forced out at second base, but the throw to first was over the head of the first baseman. Hansen's courtesy runner Kyle Petersen would score later in the inning on a Joe Harris RBI to give the Spartans a 2-0 lead and that score would stand as the final with Adair-Casey being unable to claw back in the top of the seventh.

 

Exira-EHK improves to 13-2 on the season. The Spartans have won five straight games. They've held opponents to less than three runs in all but four of their games this season and have never given up more than five. Adair-Casey drops to 2-12.

AHST SOFTBALL POSTS COMEBACK WIN OVER AUDUBON


(Avoca) After a 4-11 start to the season, the AHST softball team has won five of their last seven games. Their most recent win came Monday against Audubon 10-3. The Vikings trailed 3-0 early on, but came through with a 6 run 3rd inning to take the lead for good. Brianna Martens, Haley Blum, Angeline Enke, and Marissa Kay all had multi-hit games against the Wheelers.

 

They’ll have a big challenge ahead of them Wednesday night...

9-13 AHST is set to square of with 20-3 Treynor this evening. Viking head coach Jamie Braman says there is a mental hurdle her team needs to clear in order to compete with the defending state champs.

 

Coach Braman credits the team’s defense for their improved record over the past couple of weeks. She says the team has gotten more comfortable in the field as the season has gone on.

HARLAN NIPS ATLANTIC IN EXTRA INNINGS IN HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL


(Harlan) Derek Leinen scored on Nate Getty’s ground ball in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift Harlan past Atlantic 5-4 in a high school baseball game at Harlan Thursday night.

 

Leinen led the Cyclones with two doubles and pitched six complete no hit innings before he was replaced by Nick Tarney in the top of the seventh inning.

 

Atlantic would end up with only one hit on the night but it was a big one. Dalton Franken hit a bases loaded double to tie the game at 4-4 in the top of the seventh inning. But the Cyclones rallied back in the bottom of the eighth inning with Leinens’ lead off double and  scored from third on a Nate Getty’s one out ground ball. Leinen was able to slide under Kray Lukehart’s tag at the plate for the win.

 

The Trojans jumped out to a one-nothing lead in the top of the first. Kray Lukehart led off with a walk and stole two bases and scored on Dalton Franken’s Sacrifice fly. Harlan took a 2-1 lead in the second. Leinen doubled and scored on a wild pitch and Getty’s scored from second on Dillon Sears two out single. The Cyclones tacked two more runs on the board in the fifth inning to lead 4-1. But Atlantic tied it in the top of the seventh inning on Franken’s three RBI double before Harlan rallied back in the bottom of the eighth to win 5-4.

 

Harlan extends its record to 13-5 and 9-3 in the Hawkeye Ten Conference. Atlantic falls to 4-13 and 2-7 in the Conference.

OFFENSIVE SURGE FOR CAM BASEBALL IN LAST THREE GAMES


(Anita) It has been quite a week for the CAM baseball team. The Cougars are on a tear ever since their 1-0 win over Exira-EHK last Tuesday. The team has posted three straight lopsided wins and runs their season record to 7-4.

 

Corning was the latest victim of CAM's high octane attack with a 17-0 Cougar win on Wednesday. Before that it was CAM topping Glidden-Ralston 19-3 and Iowa Christian Academy 17-9.  During their last three games, CAM has posted 44 hits and a team average of .488. They are averaging 17.6 runs per game in that span. By comparison, the Cougars previous season high was 11 runs and they had scored more than eight runs only twice in their first eight games.

 

Trevor McKee pitched the win against Corning with 8 strikeouts. Trevor McKee threw four innings allowing only three hits and four walks in the shutout. He also supplied plenty of offense with a 3-3 day at the plate, 3 RBI, and 3 Runs Scored. Ryan Barnholt and Jarod McKee each posted two hits in the Corning win while Jarrad Cavin had a hit, scored three runs, and stole two bases.

 

The Cougars will try to extend their win streak to five games when they take on Orient-Macksburg tonight.

ANOTHER GEM FOR SMITH AS SPARTANS WIN 10TH STRAIGHT


(Kimballton) Exira-EHK improves to 14-4 on the season with their 11-0 shutout of Orient-Macksburg Tuesday.

Rachel Smith was perfect, the sophomore did not allow a hit or walk while striking out 10 batters in the five inning contest. Officially it will not be counted as a perfect game because the Spartan defense had two errors which allowed runners to reach base. Smith improves on her already impressive numbers this season. She is averaging 2.16 strikeouts per inning. Her ERA lowers to .21 and opponents are hitting just .066 against her.

 

Carley Paulsen and Smith each had three hits in the Spartans 10th straight win. Claire Paulsen aided the offensive cause by driving in two runs.

STRONG PITCHING ON DISPLAY IN GLENWOOD/HARLAN SB DOUBLEHEADER


(Harlan) Harlan and Glenwood split a softball doubleheader played last night in Harlan.

 

The Rams of Glenwood took game one by a 2-0 final. It was Glenwood’s ninth shutout win of the season backed by Junior Lisa Nebel who struck out six batters and allowed six hits over seven innings. Harlan stranded six runners on base in game one including four who were left at third base. Harlan senior pitcher Taylor Schaben struck out 10 batters and allowed only two hits but took the loss. Schaben carried a no-hitter through five innings, but Glenwood forced the action in the sixth. The Rams started the inning on a leadoff walk and eventually scored on and RBI single by Sara Ingoldsby. Jaelin Stanton also produced an RBI single to take a 2-0 lead which would go on to be the final score.

 

Harlan earned the split with a 5-0 decision in game two. Both pitchers threw well again in the nightcap. The game was scoreless until the bottom of the fourth when Harlan freshman Logan Schaben led off the frame with a double and was singled home by Taylor Schaben. The one run lead proved to be all Harlan would need, but the Cyclones did add to it with a four run sixth. The team got a leadoff single by Taylor Schaben and a 2 RBI base hit by Danielle Weyer plus took advantage of Glenwood’s fielding mistakes to pad their lead. Taylor Schaben was the winning pitcher allowing two hits and no walks while striking out five over seven innings.

 

Harlan is now 14-3 while Glenwood is 12-8.

AHST MOVING ON IN WIC BASEBALL TOURNEY


(Avoca) AHST will play in the semi-finals of their conference baseball tournament thanks to a 12-1 opening round win against Audubon Monday.  Other teams moving on include Treynor, Underwood, and Missouri Valley.

 

AHST's quarterfinal win was backed by freshman Jay Heiny's big day at the plate. Heiny drove in five runs while going 4-4 at the dish. The Vikings ended up with eleven hits and got two runs each from Jake Larson, Dylan Robinson, and Tyler Robinson.

 

Steven Jacobsen pitched the win which was his third victory of the season. The sophomore gave up just one unearned run and allowed three hits over six innings. He walked two and struck out six.

 

After a 1-4 start the Vikings have bounced back to win four of their last seven. The semi-final matchup for ASHT is coming up on Wednesday in Griswold. They'll take on a Treynor has won 14 straight games.

GRISWOLD SOFTBALL BREAKS THROUGH OFFENSIVELY FOR 5TH WIN


(Griswold) A 12-5 win at Sidney on Monday improves the record of the Griswold softball squad to 5-10. It marks the third straight week in which the Tigers have started off a week with a win as Griswold had previously picked up week-opening wins against Riverside and Tri-Center.

 

The Tigers had one of their best offensive showings of the season pounding out a dozen hits to up their 12 runs on the board. Coach Peggy Hansen says the team was driving the ball into the gaps as opposed to infield or bloop singles. The 12 runs scored is the third highest this season as the team put up 13 and 17 runs in early season wins against CAM and Riverside.

 

Western Iowa Conference Tournament play is up next for the softball squad. They play a 5-9 Audubon squad that beat them 5-4 in their lone regular season meeting. Coach Hansen says the team struggled defensively in that close loss to the Wheelers back in early June.

FBU TEAM IOWA FOOTBALL TEAM TRYOUT DATES SET


(Iowa City) Sixth, Seventh, and eighth graders who are interested in trying out for the Team Iowa Football team mark this date down, July 27. Former Walnut standout athlete and former University of Iowa Football player Tyler Blum is the Director of the FBU Team Iowa. Blum says with 64 Regional teams, the FBU National Championship is the single biggest event in Youth Football.

 

Blum says that, “FBU stands for Football University.  They are a nationwide football organization that goes around and recognizes high-level youth football players and they go around with a nationwide tour of camps and clinics and our biggest involvement with them is the national championship tournament.”

 

All eligible Participants must be entering the 6th, 7th, or 8th grades as of September 1, 2013.

 

Blum announces that, “This is marketed as a cross between the NCAA Men’s March Madness and the Little League World Series.  We put together a sixth, seventh, and eighth grade team, three different teams, and we compete in the sixty-four team single elimination national championship tournament.  The Final Four is in San Antonio, Texas and FBU crowns the national champion every year.”

 

The team tryouts will be held at 4440 Mills Civic Parkway, in West Des Moines the morning of July 27.

 

“This is some elite talent level kids in the state of Iowa.  After we narrow our list down, we will kind of keep an eye on these kids throughout their season.  We will keep an eye on them because the FBU national championship tournament doesn’t actually start till December 7th and 8th, so these kids will be able to go through their season,” adds Blum.  Once they go through their season, we will bring them back for our padded tryout, later in the fall, and narrow our roster down to 35 young athletes, so we can get ready for the tournament.”   

 

Registration on July 27, for the 8th graders will be at 9:00 a.m., 7th graders at 10:00 a.m., and sixth graders at 11:00 a.m. The tryouts will begin an hour after registration starts. The fee is $35.00 which includes a T-Shirt.

 

Those interested in trying out can also register online go to www.fbunc.com. Or for more information contact Tyler Blum, 319-358-2926.

KUEMPER SNAPS ATLANTIC SIX GAME WINNING STREAK


(Atlantic)  Two softball teams’ with different agenda’s squared off Thursday night in a high school softball game at Atlantic.

 

Kuemper nursing an 8-game losing streak traveled to Atlantic to face a Trojan girl’s team that was riding a six-game winning streak and the Knights prevailed 8-2.

 

Moriah Bohlman picked up her first win of the season in the circle. She struck out four Trojan batters, walked three, and allowed four hits. Tori Bruck took the loss for Atlantic. Bruck struck out three batters, and walked one while allowing seven hits.

 

The Knight’s took a 1-0 lead in the top of the second inning. Kendra Peter singled and scored on a Trojan error. Atlantic answered in the bottom of the frame. Tori Bruck singled and eventually scored on a Kuemper fielding error.

 

But, that would be the last time the game would be tied and it was all Kuemper after that.

 

In the third Alyson Forbes’ two-RBI single and three Trojan errors resulted in three Kuemper runs. In the bottom of the inning Atlantic mustered one run. Erin Olsen got on base with a base knocke and scored on Mackenzie Holmes RBI single to leave the score at 4-2.

 

The Knights scored two more runs each in the fourth and sixth innings powered by Kendra Peter two RBI single in the fourth and RBI double in the sixth.

 

Kendra Peter finished the night 3-4 with three RBI’s.

 

 Erin Olsen, MacKenzie Holmes, Tori Bruck, Leah Tjepkes, and Reann Cappel each had base hits to account for the Trojans offensively.

 

Kuemper’s record is now 3-13 on the year. Atlantic falls to 11-8.

ATLANTIC SWEEPS SHENANDOAH IN SOFTBALL DOUBLEHEADER


(Atlantic) It has been a perfect week so far for the Atlantic Trojan softball team. They extended their winning streak to six straight Wednesday night after defeating Shenandoah in a double-header at Atlantic 12-6 and 9-1 in the night cap.

 

In the first game the Phillies scored four runs in the top of the first inning but the Trojans countered with four of their own in the bottom half, and tacked on four more in the second and third innings to lead 12-4. Josie Anzalone smacked a three run double and a two run single to spark the Trojan offense. Shenandoah scored two runs in the top of the fifth on Jordan Major’s two RBI double.

 

The Trojans scored 12-runs on 14 hits. Mackenzie Holmes and Josie Anzalone led the Trojan attacks with three hits.

 

In game two Atlantic broke open the game with six runs in the fourth.  Erin Olsen, Reann Cappel and Tori Bruck all had RBI singles in the inning. They added three more runs in the sixth sparked by singles from Emily Mitchell, Molly Welter, and Leah Tpepkes. Mitchell went three-for-four at the plate to lead Atlantic in the nightcap.

 

Leah Tjepkes and Tori Bruck split duties in the circle for Atlantic now 11-7 on the season. They host Kuemper tonight.

 

We will have the game on KS95, pre-game starts at 7:00 p.m.

SPARTAN STAR RACHEL SMITH BY THE NUMBERS


(Kimballton) With words it is hard to describe the dominance of Exira-EHK pitcher Rachel Smith, so we'll do it with the numbers. Smith pitched a no hitter once again on Tuesday night and struck out 18 CAM batters in the process. Exira-EHK got the 2-0 win and improved to 11-4 on the season.

 

Smith has recorded a state leading 178 strikeouts this season. Those have come over an 81 and 2/3 inning pitched span for an average of 2.1 k's per inning pitched. At the current pace, Smith is unlikely to catch the single season record of 590 in one season, as she would need to throw 280 innings this year to match the mark held by Paige Stamp of Lisbon in 1996. She is however on track to break the record for strikeouts per game. Smith is averaging 16.18 strikeouts per game and that single season state record is 15.57 per game held by Erica Martinez of Fort Madison in 1999.

 

In her career Smith, still just a sophmore, has set down 706 players via the strikeout. Her strikeout rate has jumped considerably from her first two seasons. As an eighth grader she struck out 208 batters in 123 innings (56.3%), that improved to 320 strike outs last year in 178 innings of work (59.9%), and this year she has set down 72.6% of the opposition on k's.

 

Tuesday night's no-hit, shutout performance lowered her ERA to 0.26 this season. Opponents have managed just 21 hits in 299 at bats against her for an opponent batting average of .070. Smith has pitched two no-hitters (against CAM and Grandview Park Baptist) this season to go along with five one-hit performances.

CAM HANDS EXIRA-EHK FIRST LOSS


(Elk Horn) In a game that was tightly contested from start to finish, CAM improved to 4-4 on the season and dropped Exira-EHK 8-1. CAM Senior Jarrad Cavin's stellar pitching outdid Exira-EHK freshman Brady Hansen's strong outing in a 1-0 win for the Cougars.

 

Cavin allowed six hits over seven innings of work. He struck out five and walked three. The senior worked out of a bases loaded jam in the first inning and got help from the defense when a run was cut down at the plate in the 3rd. In all, Cavin would force Exira-EHK to strand 9 base runners on the night.

 

CAM backed Cavin with just enough offense to get the win. The Cougars were only able to pick up three hits agianst Brady Hansen, but one of them was an RBI single by Matthew Williamson that scored Trevor McKee in the fourth inning.

DENISON/SCHLESWIG TOPS ATLANTIC IN HAWKEYE TEN CONFERENCE BASEBALL MONDAY


(Atlantic) A seven run first inning led Denison/Schleswig past Atlantic 10-6 Monday night in a Hawkeye Ten Conference Baseball game at Denison.

 

Both teams slugged it out in the first three innings before the game tamed down in the final four frames.  The Trojans grabbed a 3-0 nothing lead in the top of the first on Dalton Franken’s three run homer, but the Monarch’s answered with seven runs in the bottom half. Sean Houston smacked a three run homer to tie the game, and Brayden Schurke launched a two run dinger to give the Monarchs a 5-3 lead with nobody down. Taylor Thul and Ryan Riemers added to the cause with RBI singles to move the score to 7-3 Denison/Schleswig after one inning.

 

The Trojans closed the gap to 7-5 on Zach Nelson’s two run homer in the top of the second,  but the Monarch’s kept Atlantic at arms length in their side of the inning.  Houston crossed home plate on a Trojan error and Schurke tacked another run on Taylor Thul RBI walk to make it a 9-5 game after two.

 

In the top of the third Ryan Hawkins scored on a Monarch error to tighten the game to 9-6, but Derek Khronke scored for Denison/Shleswig on a throw to first base in bottom of the third to extend their lead to 10-6 which would eventually be the final score of the game.

 

The Monarch’s scored 10-runs on 13-hits, and Atlantic scored six runs on four hits led by Dalton Franken who finished the game three-for-four including that three run homer. Zach Nelson popped a two-run homer for the Trojans fourth hit of the contest.

 

Robert Lyons led the Monarch at the plate. The senior first baseman was a perfect four-for-four. Derek Khronke went three-for-four; Sam Houston was two-for-three with three RBI’s including a three-run homer. Brayden Schurke was one-four two with his first inning a two-run homer.

 

Freshman pitcher Brandon Brotherton picked up the win for the Monarchs and Tristen Benn was tagged with the loss for the Trojans.

 

Atlantics’ record is now 0-10 on the year, Denison-Schleswig moves to 5-5.

RECORD WISE, EXIRA-EHK BASEBALL AMONG THE ELITE


(Elk Horn) Only five teams in the state remain undefeated in high school baseball after the season's first three weeks. Among those is 7-0 Exira-EHK. Following Treynor's 4-0 weekend loss to Bondarant-Farrar in softball, the Spartans are the lone area team to start of the season perfect in either baseball or softball.

 

Going back to last season Exira-EHK has won 21 of their last 22 games. The lone loss in that stretch was in the 2012 district finals to Coon Rapids-Bayard. Exira-EHK has gotten the job done with dominating pitching. They've given up just 26 hits and 12 runs all year. The pitching staff has a collective ERA of 1.22.

 

Leading the way have been sophomores Zach Kliefoth and Tyler Jacobsen who are a combined 5-0 on the hill. Kliefoth is yet to give up an earned run and has only allowed 4 hits in 10 innings. He's racked up 23 strikeouts compared to just two walks in his first two starts. Jacobsen, pictured, is the team leader in strikeouts with 36 through 22 innings pitched. Jacobsen's ERA sits at 1.27. Not to be left out is freshman Brady Hansen with his 2-0 record. Hansen has struck out 18 batters in 14 innings. He has allowed only 8 hits and has an ERA at 2.00.

TICKNOR AND MCKEE GO YARD TO LEAD CAM BASEBALL TO VICTORY


(Anita) CAM broke out of an offensive slump in a big way on Thursday night. The Cougars picked up their third win of the year with an 11-3 defeat of rival Adair-Casey.

 

The team had ten hits only over their final two innings at the plate. Coach Dan Daueghrty says those big innings were headlined by a Trace Ticknor grand slam and a Trevor McKee two run shot.

 

Meanwhile Jarrad Cavin earned another win on the mound. The senior is 3-1 and has started every CAM win this season. CAM will take on West Central Valley in a non-conference game on Friday. Trevor McKee will get his first start on the mound this season.

KUEMPER CATHOLIC SENIOR FIRES NO-NO


(Carroll) Backed by senior Chris Halbur's no-hitter, the Kuemper Catholic baseball team won a key early season Hawkeye-10 Conference contest Wednesday night over Harlan. Despite picking up just one hit themselves, the Knights, thanks to four walks, scratched across 4 runs in the shutout victory.

 

Halbur struck out 16 of the 22 batters he faced and was only one walk away from a perfect game(Nick Tarney was the lone batter to reach safely for Harlan). The overpowering senior right hander is averaging a strikeout and a half per inning pitched on the season and has a fierce 0.43 ERA.

 

The win puts Kuemper Catholic at 2-4 overall and 2-1 in Hawkeye-10 play. Harlan is now 6-3 overal and 4-1 in the conference. Despite the loss, Harlan got good pitching from Cale Stork who threw five innings without allowing a single hit. Stork walked four and gave up four runs but only one of the runs was earned. Derek Leinen pitched one scoreless inning allowing the games only hit and walking one.

PETE LANGENHAN PICKED TO COACH RIVERSIDE BOYS BASKETBALL


(Oakland) The Riverside School Board has approved the hiring of Pete Langenhan as the schools boys basketball coach. Langenhan will take over for Jason Shelangouski who announced his resignation following the 2012-13 season.

 

Langenhan has been a junior high coach at Riverside in the past and has also helped out with the high school program. Riverside is coming off of a 24-2 campaign that saw the Bulldogs make their first state tournament in school history (in 1986 the program qualified as the Oakland Yellow Jackets).

 

Superintendent James Sutton says Langenhan is familiar with the kinds and expects him to hit the ground running.

NODAWAY VALLEY OUTSLUGS CORNING FOR SOFTBALL VICTORY


(Greenfield) Nodaway Valley won a crazy, back and forth softball game against Corning Tuesday night. The Wolverines outlasted the Red Raiders in a game that featured 27 combined hits, 14 combined errors, and 28 total runs.

 

Thanks to a 7th inning grand slam by Nodaway Valley senior Sydney Reeves, Nodaway Valley prevailed 15-13. Nodaway Valley trailed 1-0 early on but put four runs on the board in the top of the 4th only to see Corning answer right back and tie the game in teh bottom of the inning. 

 

The teams traded runs through the next three innings. Nodaway Valley then took the lead for good in the 7th inning. It was an inning in which they tacked six runs on the board with four of them coming on the grand slam by Reeves.

 

Nodaway Valley improves to 3-7 on the season. Next up for the Wolverines is 1-2 Mount Ayr.

PETE AND KATE WALKER BRING STATE TITLE TO RED OAK IN CO-ED TENNIS


(Des Moines) Red Oak's doubles team of Pete and Kate Walker claimed the championship in the Class 1A co-ed state tennis tournament held Tuesday at Drake's indoor tennis facility.

 

The Walkers breezed through into the semi-finals, losing just one set along the way. Then in the semi's they beat Davenport Assumption's team 6-1, 6-2. In the finals they met a team from Boone and won 6-2, 6-3.

 

Also competing for Red Oak yesterday was the team of Zoey Baker and Jordan Nelson who made it all the way to the quarterfinals before losing 6-0, 6-0 to the eventual third place squad from Waterloo Columbus.

 

Shenandoah also had two teams in the field while Clarinda and Audubon each sent one group.

 

For Shenandoah, Jacob Holmes and Tarynee Kinghorn lost 7-6, 6-1 in round one. Brad Young and Hannah Daily also came up short for the Mustangs in the first round 5-7, 6-2, 1 (3).

 

Audubon's Bradley Nissen and Maddie Christiensen lost 6-0, 6-2 in the first round. The were defeated by Lindsay McGonegle and Francis Hart of Waterloo Columbus.

 

Clarinda's Krista Rodgers and Nate Jones defeated their first round opponent 6-2, 6-0  before being eliminated in round two.

STRONG PITCHING CONTINUES FOR UNBLEMISHED EXIRA-EHK BASEBALL SQUAD


(Elk Horn) Despite only returning two letter winners from last year's team, the Exira-EHK baseball team is off to an undefeated start to the season. The team has a 1.31 earned run average and are holding opponents to a .138 batting average.

 

The Spartans improved to 5-0 with Monday's 11-0 win over Orient-Macksburg. Zach Kliefoth, who has the best pitching stats on the staff, picked up the win on the mound. Kliefoth pitched five shutout innings with 11 strikeouts. On the season Kliefoth is yet to allow a run in his 10 innings pitched. He boasts a 2-0 record and has allowed only four hits. Tyler Jacobsen is also 2-0 on the mound. Coming off of a breakout freshman season, Jacobsen has a 1.40 ERA with 27 strikeouts and only nine hits allowed in 15 innings.

 

Offensively the team has been no slouch with an offensive .310 batting average as a team with an average of just under 8 runs per game. Joe Harris led the charge in Monday's win with a 3-3 day that included a double, a home run, and four RBI. Harris (.400) is one of three Spartan hitters along with Jared Hansen (.600) and Jacobsen (.471) hitting .400 or better on the year.

LINEUP CHANGE SPARKS AUDUBON OFFENSE


(Audubon) Nine different Wheelers scored runs in (3-6) Audubon's 12-0 win over Riverside in Western Iowa Conference Softball Monday. Coach Eric Borkowski says he shuffled up the lineup with the hopes of drumming up some offense. That move payed off in a big way as the Wheelers posted a season high 12 runs.

 

By comparison, the squad had combined for just four total runs in their previous three games, all three losses. Monday's win over Riverside gives Audubon a 3-6 record on the season in the midst of a jampacked week of softball. The Wheeler's were scheduled to play games Monday through Friday, but were postponed Tuesday night because of rain. Nonetheless the squad will close out the week with three games in as many nights as they take on Griswold, Guthrie Center and Tri-Center.

 

Monday's win was not only Audubon's best offensive showing of the year, but also their best effort to date when it comes to pitching and defense. Katie Porsch threw an efficient contest and picked up her first shutout of the season.

TREYNOR SOFTBALL COACH REFLECTS ON 500TH WIN


(Treynor) "It means I have been coaching for a long time," those were the first words out of coach Jo Ellen Travis's mouth when asked what her 500th career victory meant to her. Coach Travis deflected all credit saying it takes community support, players, assistant coaches, and administrators to have a succesful program. Coach Travis has guided Treynor for all 23 years of her head coaching career. Those years includes last season's run to the state championship.

 

The 6-0 Cardinals are on a roll since the late stages of last season. They only lost one senior and thus are a very confident group this year. They have won 14 straight games dating back to last season. The team has shut out four of their last six opponents in 2013. Career win number 500 for coach Travis on Monday came in the form of a 7-0 win over AHST.

HARLAN CRUISES TO BASEBALL WIN AT ATLANTIC


(Harlan) Harlan powered their way to a 4-2 start to the baseball season by pounding out a season best 11 hits in their 14-2 win against Atlantic Monday.

 

The Cyclones pounced on the opposition early on scoring five runs in the first inning. Nate Gettys, Adam Juhl, Jake Daeges, David Ratigan, and Nick Tarney all scored in the opening fram. Offense would be plentiful for Harlan against a short handed Atlantic squad. The Cyclones took a 6-0 lead into the third inning and then notched two more runs in the 4th. Their biggest inning came in the 5th when they batted around and scored six runs. Jake Daeges, David Ratigan, and Derek Leinen all went 2-3 at the plate. Junior leadoff man Nate Gettys stole five bases and scored four times.

 

Nick Kaufman improved to 3-0 on the mound this season. The junior threw four innings and allowed only two hits. His ERA for the year now sits at 1.40. Brett Croghan struck out the side in a 1-2-3 5th inning on the mound.

 

Harlan meets Creston in a doubleheader at Harlan Tuesday night. Both teams enter at 4-2 overall and 2-0 in the conference.

TIMELY HITTING FUELS GRISWOLD'S SOFTBALL WIN OVER TRI-CENTER


(Griswold) Monday night the Griswold Tigers were able to do something that they couldn't get done last year, that's beating Tri-Center. The Tigers came away with a 7-3 vitory over the Trojans.

 

The Tigers used their speed to leg out four infield singles, including three from #9 hitter Payton Rush.  Brooke Hansen hit a key 2-RBI double in the third inning which coach Peggy Hansens says gave the rest of the hitters more confidence that they could hit Tri-Center's pitching.

 

The win evens Griswold's record at 3-3 on the season. They are averaging over 12 runs per game in their victories which have come over Riverside, Tri-Center, and CAM. The team is 2-2 in the conference heading into a Tuesday contest with Missouri Valley.

BIG YEAR FOR RIVERSIDE BOYS SPORTS CONTINUES INTO BASEBALL


(Oakland) They are only a handful of games into the season, but the Riverside Bulldogs have already matched their win total from each of the previous two seasons. With their three wins through the first five games the Bulldogs are feeling good about the start they are off to this season. It’s been quite a run this season for Riverside with teams qualifying for state in cross country, basketball, golf, and soccer. Coach Alex Oliver says all of that success is carrying over into the summer. After finishing 3-15 a year ago and 3-17 the year before, an enhanced off-season work ethic has also helped the early season success.

 

The Bulldogs are coming off of an exciting 7-6 win against Audubon on Monday night, a victory that saw the winning run score in the bottom of the seventh. Senior Ean Patrick scored all the way from first after two throwing errors following a bunt. Next up for the Bulldogs is a 6-5 Underwood squad that the team has struggled against in the past.

 

Statistically it has been the pitching that has stuck out so far this season for the Bulldogs. They have the 3-2 record despite hitting under .200 as a team offensively. They’ve made up for that with at team ERA of 2.67.

TRI-CENTER TURNS THINGS AROUND IN WIN OVER GRISWOLD


(Neola) The Tri-Center baseball team snapped a three game losing streak and improved to 5-4 overall with a 14-6 win on Monday over Griswold.

 

Coach Josh Abel says the team had been struggling with recent injuries to Nick Guarino and Britton Barrier, but were able to put the ball in play consistently on Monday. 12 of the 14 runs scored were unearned.

 

Junior Jake Schneckloth got his first start of the season on the mound and came away as the winning pitcher. He allowed 6 runs on 7 hits in the game against the now 0-6 Griswold Tigers.

 

The road ahead is a challenging one this week for the Trojans. They are scheduled to have back to back road games against St. Albert and Treynor.

GRISWOLD BASEBALL LOOKING TO SHAKE OFF SLOW START


(Griswold) The pitching has been good but the offense and defense have struggled in the early part of the 2013 baseball season according to Griswold coach Kevin Whitehill. The Tiger's have not gotten off to the start they were hoping for and sit at 0-5 heading into the third week of the season.

 

The squad has two days off to start the week before heading to Audubon for a conference matchup on Wednesday. Coach Whitehill says the team is still very young, just like they were a year ago. They have just two seniors and no junior starters forcing them to start several underclassmen across the diamond.

 

Coach Whitehill says he's hoping to see 7 innings of good baseball as the team tries to right the ship. The team is hitting just .112 at the plate and scoring less than five runs per game.

Against Columbus Catholic the squad fell short 5-2. The lone wins for Red Oak in the championship matchup came in singles from Zoey Baker and Vannausdle. Davenport Assumption finished third by beating Dubuqe Wahlert 5-3 in the consolation match.
