(Atlantic) The Trojan Softball Committee honored Joel Simms as the inaugural member of the Trojan Softball Hall of Fame Saturday night just prior to the Atlantic – Exira/EHK softball game at Atlantic.


Coach Simms was instrumental in beginning the softball program at Atlantic High School in 1972. He went on to coach the Trojans from 1972 to 1993 and had winning seasons in 20 of the 21 years he coached. He led his teams to five conference championships and compiled a record of 410-203 ranking him in the top 100 of Iowa’s all-time winningest coaches according to the Iowa Coaches Associations.

(Atlantic) Exira/EHK and Atlantic slugged it out defensively until the top of the tenth inning when the Spartans delivered the knockout punch in the top of the tenth inning to defeat Atlantic in a non-conference high school softball game 3-0, at Atlantic Saturday night.


Spartan pitcher Rachel Smith retired the first 14-Trojan hitters before Tori Bruck reached first base on a dropped third strike in the bottom of the fifth inning. However, the Trojans left her on first base and didn’t threaten again until the bottom of the sixth when Emily Mitchell doubled and was left on third.


Exira/EHK had a chance to break the game open in the top of the sixth with the bases loaded and one out. But, Trojan pitcher Ally Anderson got out the jam with back to back strike outs to close the door on the Spartans.


Neither team would budge until the top of the tenth when Taylor Paulsen led the inning off for the Spartans with a walk, Rachel Walker singled, and Mara Burmeister’s singled and drove home a run. That was followed by two more runs by Walker and Burmeister which was enough to seal the deal for Exira/EHK who ended the night with three runs on five hits.


Spartan pitcher Rachel Smith tossed a three hit shutout, striking out 18-batters, no walks, and the Spartan defense committed no fielding errors. Taylor Paulsen, Mara Burmeister, Rachel Walker, Hannah Smith and Claire Paulsen each singled for Exira/EHK now 4-0 on the season.


Ally Anderson had a strong performance in the circle for Atlantic despite the loss. Anderson struck out ten, walked four and hit to batters. Emily Mitchell knocked a double, and Erin Olsen and Tori Bruck each had singles for the 4-2 Trojans.

(Oakland) Expectations were sky high for the Riverside boys soccer team coming into the season. The team returned a huge group of seniors from last year's state tournament team and entered the year with seemingly unlimited potential.


The season played out nearly as well as they could have hoped winning 12 straight games heading into Saturday's substate final against St. Albert. The Falcons are a familiar postseason opponent as Riverside upended the western Iowa soccer powerhouse a year ago in the semi-finals en route to state. Coach John Thomas described the regular and postseason wins over St. Albert as the biggest in his program's history. Now they meet again with one team looking for revenge, and to other trying to return to state.


The path though the substate for Riverside included a first round bye followed by a 5-0 win over AHST Thursday. Tucker Bluml, Tanner Ford, Brady Ryun, Michael Bertacini, and Malachi Dillon all scored goals in that one. St. Albert has had two close calls, beating Underwood and Tri-Center by 2-1 scores.


The Falcons enter at 11-9 overall. The two teams did not play in the regular season. The Bulldogs are 15-2 with their lone losses coming to Harlan and Thomas Jefferson, both early in the year. Riverise has shutout seven opponents this year. They've only given up 5 goals during their current winning streak.



(Audubon) The Audubon Wheelers will be making their third straight girls state golf tournament appearance Monday when they compete in the 8-team, Class 2A field in Marshalltown.


The Wheelers go in with the 7th best 18 hole average of any state qualifying team, head coach Paul Lynch isn’t putting any added pressure on the team. They shot a 381 at the 2nd Round of Regionals last week and Lynch would be pleased if they can repeat that. Dike-New Hartford, Alta/Aurelia, Central Decatur, Pleasantville, West Monona, Nashua Plainfield, and South Winneshiek make up the field of teams. 


Audubon fans may be keeping a closer eye on the individual scores where senior Susie Bylund figures to be towards the top. Bylund placed 8th a sophomore in Class 1A and 10th last year in Class 2A. The 36-hole tournament tees off at 9:00am on both Monday and Tuesday.


Outside of Bylund, Faith Fliflet, Jorja Weitl, and Alexis Fabian have been the top four golfers for Audubon this season. Fliflet, a senior, has claimed runner-up medalist honors at several competitions.

(Atlantic) A four run fifth inning gave Atlantic the boost they needed in an 8-3 win over Red Oak Thursday night at Red Oak. The Trojans now 2-0 on the season scored eight runs on eight hits and committed one fielding error.


Zach Nelson was on the mound to start the game for the Trojans and pitched three innings. He struck out six batters, walked two and one batter was hit by a pitch. Logan Steffens was summoned to the hill in the bottom of the fourth and struck out seven batters and recorded no walks.


Red Oak, (0-2), used three pitchers, Hayden Berry, Carlos Guerra and Jesse Taylor in the loss.


Atlantic jumped out to a two-nothing lead in the top of the first inning on back to back singles from Zach Nelson and Joey Walker. Phoenix Shadden running for  Nelson scored on a passed ball and Walker went home on Brendon Holmes Sacrifice fly to right field. The Tigers tied the game in the bottom of the third inning with two runs on one hit. But that was short lived. The Trojans tacked on one run in the fourth on Collin Bakers RBI single, and exploded with four runs on two-hits in the top of the fifth to open up an 8-2 lead. Tyler Thomas provided the biggest punch with a one out two-RBI single.


Red Oak notched one more run in the bottom of the seventh inning Travis Fournier’s RBI single to, but Steffens snuffed out any kind of late game rally forcing two ground outs and a strikeout to end the inning and the game.


Atlantic travels to Clarinda tonight.

(Kimballton) Just two games into the season the Exira-EHK softball team is showing why they are ranked in the top 15 of Class 1A by the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union. And they may be making a case to move up even higher. 


The Spartans are 2-0 and have gotten a pair of dominant pitching performances from all-stater Rachel Smith. The junior has not allowed a hit in the wins over Coon Rapids-Bayard and Ar-We-Va. Her strikeout totals, which were at record pace last year, are even higher early on this season. She fanned 16 in the season opening win over the Crusaders and set down 18 via the 'K' Wednesday against the Rockets. She has allowed only five walks and zero earned runs. Last night she was just one walk away from a perfect game. 


The Spartans have a pair of road contests to close out the opening week. They'll visit Glidden-Ralston Friday before taking on Atlantic on Saturday. Saturday's contest will air on KS95.7 FM.

(Avoca) The Griswold Tigers started off the 2014 baseball season with a road win on Wednesday. The Tigers were able to down conference opponent AHST 8-4.


Griswold was able to get on the board in the first inning to give them the earlly edge and led througout the game. They were able to add some insurance runs in the top of the 7th to give them some extra cushion. They churned out 4 runs in that top half of the 7th inning. The Tigers held an 8-2 lead going to the bottom of the 7th and allowed two runs before slamming the door shut. 


James Reynolds pitched the win and had a solid night on the mound. He struck out nine batters without allowing any walks. He gave up only four hits in teh complete game. Griswold begins the season at 1-0 on the year with a matchup against Bedford on the docket tonight. 


AHST drops to 1-1 on the year.  Zach Hagadon led the AHST offense going 1-3 with a run scored and an RBI. Nate Eggers and Jay Heiny each went 1-3 with an RBI.

(Avoca) Despite picking up just three hits on the evening, the AHST Lady Vikes were able to post a 5-3 win at home over Griswold Wednesday.


AHST struck first with two runs in the 2nd inning. Marissa Kay led off the inning with a walk and scored on a Haley Blum bunt. Blum, who reached on an error, also scored in that inning thanks to a Jayna Olesen base hit. Olesen had two of the teams three this on the night. 


Griswold tied things up with a pair of runs in the 4th inning. Hannah Misner drew a leadoff walk and Alyx Flippin followed with an infield hit. Reagan Whitehill and Jackie Rush both followed with hits to drive in the runs. 


AHST's response came in th 5th inning with two more runs. Oleson and Danikah Grobe each scored in the frame. Then the Lady Vikes added an insurance run in the 7th when Haley Constable led off the inning with a walk and eventually scored on Holly Hatch's sacrafice fly. That put AHST up 5-2 heading to the 7th. 


Griswold attempted a rally, loading the bases with only one out, but could yield just one run in the 7th. Jackie Rush scored on a Misner sac fly, but the Tigers left the bases loaded to end the game.


The winning pitcher is Jessica Butcher (pictured) for AHST. She tossed a complete game, giving up 7 hits, 3 walks, and struck out 3. AHST committed just one error defensively and had several solid plays defensively specifically from Grobe in center field. The Lady Vikes threw out two Griswold baserunners at the plate during the game. Brooke Hansen suffers the loss for Griswold. She gave up only 3 hits, allowed 3 walks, and struck out 6. Griswold had 3 errors which all ended up costing them runs.


The 0-1 Tigers will get back in action right away with a doubleheader against Tri-Center Thursday. 2-0 AHST hosts Glenwood on Friday.

(Oakland) Riverside heads back to the Class 1A Boys State Golf Tournament with the experience of last year’s 7th place state finish under their belts.


Even though this year’s state tournament will be played on a different course, coach Gary Wax is hoping the experience from golfing at state a year ago will be beneficial.



According to quikstats Riverside and Griswold are the top two Class 1A teams in the state. They also have the two best district tournament scores going in perhaps making them the teams with the bulls-eye on their backs.



In addition to the team race, Eric Rock may be an individual title contender. Rock placed in a tie for 3rd in the 2013 state tournament. Dylan McClain, Tyler Krueger, Tim Brink, Brad McGinnis and Brandon Hering round out the rest of the varsity lineup. Coach Wax says the top four have been very strong this season. The Class 1A teams compete at noon on Friday and at 8:00am on Saturday in the 36-hole tournament.

(Elk Horn) The Exira-EHK Spartan baseball team got their 2014 season off to a great start Tuesday night with a win over Coon Rapids-Bayard, 3-1. Coach Tony Petersen says the team has the potential on paper to have a pretty special season.


Their pitching staff is loaded, especially with top two starters Tyler Jacobsen and Zach Kliefoth. Jacobsen was dominant Tuesday with 13 strikeouts against Coon Rapids-Bayard. He gave up just three hits, all ground ball singles. Both Jacobsen and Kliefoth can bring the head up into the mid-80's. Brady Hansen and Jared Hansen will be the third and fourth pitchers on the staff and both were effective last year as well. Drew Peppers could see some time on the hill as well, Peppers is back after spending last year away from the diamond.


Offensively, coach Petersen says the team stranded too many baserunners in their opener with Coon Rapids-Bayard, they left 12 on base. He hopes to see the team develop some clutch hitting this season. It was the top of the order that produced in the 3-1 win. Jared Hansen led off the game with a hit and was driven in by Peppers. Kliefoth and Jacobsen each provided RBI's in the third.


It's a busy first week for the Spartans who will take on a solid Ar-We-Va team tonight. Their schedule continues with contests against Lenox, and Glidden-Ralston all on consecutive nights.

(Atlantic) Atlantic High School is pleased to announce that, pending board approval, Kelly Juhl will be taking over as the head girls basketball coach starting with the 2014-15 season. 


Coach Juhl began his coaching career at Garner-Hayfield in Garner, IA where he was the assistant boys varsity coach from 1999-2004.  In 2004 he and his family accepted teaching and coaching positions with Duluth High School in Duluth, GA. While there he served as the assistant varsity girls basketball coach where he was part of a program that went 0-25 in his first year there to being a state qualifying team in 2007 and a 4 th place finish in Class 5A in 2008. In 2013 Kelly, his wife Amanda, and their three sons Keaton, Kinnick, and Koen relocated back to the area to be closer to family. 


During the 2013-14 school year Kelly taught and was the assistant girls basketball coach for the Exira-EHK School District.

(Griswold) Griswold will be among the 8 Class 1A teams at the boys state golf tournament later this week. Granted each district tournament course was different, the Tigers qualified with the lowest score in the 1A field with a 320.


Jake Reynolds, James Reynolds, Treighton Oakleaf, Tyler Wyman, Tyrel Peters, and Mo Kimpson make up the six varsity golfers that will compete for the Tigers at American Legion Golf Course in Marshalltown. Coach Jason Reynolds says the team had a great day last Friday winning the district tournament over conference nemesis Riverside by four strokes. He says the team has vastly improved the mental part of their game including being able to shake off bad holes quickly.


At state, Griswold will be joined by Bishop Garrigan, East Buchanan, Riverside, Grundy Center, Lisbon, Newell-Fonda, and Winfield-Mt. Union in the team race.

(Ames) Harlan missed out on sending their entire boys golf team to state by just one stroke at last week's district tournament at Carroll Country Club. While they'd like to be sent the full squad to Ames for the state meet this week, the good news is they have a pair of individuals in the field. 


Ross Martens shot a 72 to claim the sectional title while Michael Sorfonden also advanced by shooting a 74, placing 4th after a three-way playoff. The duo are among a list of 16 state qualifiers that shot 74 or better in their district tourney.


This will be Martens second time at state. He went with the entire team during his sophomore season in 2012. Coach Chad Swanson says Martens has put in a lot of time and has improved dramatically since then. Sorfonden has made big strides over the last couple of weeks of this season. Coach Swanson describes Sorfonden as a great athlete who is getting more and more comfortable as a golfer.


The 36-hole tournament starts Friday at noon in Ames. The 2nd round is set to tee-off at 8:00a.m. on Saturday.

(Mapleton) For the third straight year the Audubon Wheeler girls golf team will end their season at the state Tournament. Audubon advanced Tuesday by shooting a 381 at the 2nd Round of Regionals in Mapleton. West Monona (371) finished 10 strokes ahead of the Wheelers to move on as well. Hinton, one of the favorites going in, struggled with a 389. South O'Brien shot 396. 


Susie Bylund finished as the runner-up medalist, leading Audubon with a round of 80. Faith Fiflet was also in the top five individuals with an 89. Coach Paul Lynch says both golfers were a little bit off of what they normally shoot but battled. Jorja Weitl and Alexis Fabian both came in below their average to give the team a boost.


Coach Lynch says it's been a great group who has worked really hard. This is their third straight trip to state and he looks for it to be a tough field this year in Class 2A.

(Griswold) Griswold’s 2014 softball season opener will be broadcast on KSOM. The game is Wednesday night at AHST.


Griswold went 12-15 a season ago, but 8 of those wins came in the last three weeks of the year. That has the squad carrying some momentum into 2014. Coach Peggy Hansen is hoping that strong finish can offset a lack of spring practice time.



The squad has just one senior, Brooke Hansen. She’ll be relied on to do most of the pitching along with a heavy leadership role. After Hansen it's a core of seven juniors that will fill out most of the rest of the starting lineup.


Coach Hansen expects the conference to be even stronger this year with the addition of IKM-Manning and Logan-Magnolia. Her goal is to be in the top half of the Western Iowa Conference all season long.

After over 30 years at the helm, Monahan is going out in style with several events at the state meet.


In for the Wheelers in individual events are Trevor Smith (400), Colby Rattenborg (Long Jump), and Mitchell Nelsen (110 Meter High Hurdles). Three relays will also be in action on the blue oval, the 4X100, Shuttle Hurdle, and Distance Medley.

(Creston) Next winter the Creston Boys Basketball team will have a new head coach on the sideline. It’s a familiar name on the Southwest Iowa Boys Basketball scene.


Brett Watson is taking over as head coach for the Panthers. Yes, that Brett Watson, the sharpshooter from Elk Horn that finished his high school career nearly 15 years ago as the #5 scorer in state history. After a successful college playing career at Wayne State, Watson has spent the past nine seasons at ADM where he was the JV boys coach for five years and head coach of the girls team the past 4 seasons. ADM went 10-12 last season and 13-11 the year before.


He says he sees a good opportunity at Creston and is looking forward to get back into the boys game.  Watson has one simple goal in mind when he takes the reins in Creston. The plan is to get better everyday..


So far the Elk Horn native has just seen film of his new team. He is looking forward to meeting his new team members a little better in the near future. Creston is coming off of an 11-11 season. They return 1st team all-conference selection Jay Wolfe. Wolfe, a senior to be, is the leading returning scorer in the conference at 18.6 point per game.

(Earlham) Audubon led the charge among area boys and girls squads competing at the Earlham state qualifying meet Thursday night.


The Wheeler girls are sending three events automatically to the state meet. The Wheeler boys finished the night with two automatic qualifiers. Adair-Casey also had two events punch their ticket to state with wins Thursday.


The Audubon girls won the Shuttle Hurdle Relay plus Emma Konkler won both the 100 and 200 Meter Dash. For the Audubon boys, their automatic qualifications came from Trevor Smith in the 400 and Colby Rattenborg in the Long Jump.

Emmitt Wheatley, of Adair-Casey, dominated the sprint events at Earlham. He won the 100 Meter Dash in 11.36 and the 200 23.00.

Several other area individuals and relays ran good times and will have to wait and see if those times, distances, and heights hold up when compared to the rest of the state.


(Griswold) One year ago Griswold struggled on their home course in the sectional golf tournament and failed to advance to districts. This year, after another strong regular season, the Tigers will again have the luxury of competing at home in the first round of the postseason. Their opportunity to redeem themselves comes Friday, but it won't be easy.


The loaded field includes Riverside, Nodaway Valley, East Mills, and Griswold as some of the top contenders. The top two teams advance to next Friday's sectional tournament at Crestwood Hills in Anita. If Griswold is in the top two, then a third team will be allowed to move on. Tiger head coach Jason Reynolds discusses the strength of the district.


Click to listen


Coach Reynolds believes it'll take a 330 or better to advance as a team. That equates to approximately an 82 average among your top four golfers. A year ago Griswold was the Western Iowa Conference Tournament champion, but then turned around and failed to advance postseason. Coach Reynolds says that frustration should help this year.


Click to listen


If the Tigers can't qualify as a team, they'll have the opportunity to qualify some individuals for the sectionals on May 23rd, then the top individual scores move on to the next round and coach Reynolds believes several Tigers are capable of that.

Coach Reynolds was asked whether or not Friday's outcome will determine if this was a successful season for his squad.

Other teams at Griswold on May 16th include Bedford, CAM, Lenox and Nishnabotna. The tournament starts at 10:00am. Other sectional host sites that head to districts at Crestwood Hills are Lamoni, Coon Rapids, and Dunlap.

(Atlantic) Track Athletes across the state will be competing at state qualifying meets today for a spot on the big stage next week. In Class 3a the top two individuals and the next eight fastest times and distances will qualify for the state meet that runs May 22, 23 and 24. Atlantic is one of the host sites in Class 3A. The Co-Ed meet consists of teams from Harlan, Glenwood, Green County, Carroll, Creston,

Denison/Schleswig, and Winterset.


Atlantic Head Coach Alan Jenkins says this is the most important meet of the season and his goal is to put his athletes in the best position to qualify, and one example is placing Josiah Williams in the 3,200.

Jenkins admits at first it didn’t look good for Williams in the two-mile, but…

The other prospects for Atlantic include; Robbie Bodine in the long jump, and Brendon Holmes in the 400-low hurdles. Bodine has recorded the longest jump of the group with a 21-00.00 effort. Holmes’ 56.19  is the best of any in the eight team field as well.

(Elk Horn) Exira-EHK is set to run, jump, and throw at West Harrison this afternoon for the state qualifying meet.


Spartan girls track coach Ross Blake looks for the Long Jump, 200 Meter Dash, 400 Meter Dash, and 4X800 Meter Relay to all have good opportunities to advance. Perhaps the best bets comes in the 200 and 400 where Jen Neville has had a strong season. Neville owns the district’s fastest time in both of those events.


Sidney Parker has the site’s best long jump, but Coach Blake says there are a lot of challengers.  Parker ranks 15th in the state in the long jump. Another chance for the Spartans to get to Des Moines comes in the 4X800 Meter Relay. That group includes Claire Paulsen, Emily Copic, Jen Neville, and Grace Hoflen.

Coach Blake says the West Harrison meet has some very good athletes, and adds the team has their work cut out for them, but feels they are prepared.

(Harlan) The Harlan boys track team will be among the squads competing in Atlantic Thursday for opportunities to participate in next week’s state track meet.


Harlan Boys track coach Sam Brummer lists the 4X800, 4X400, 400 Meter Dash, 4X100, 1600, 800, Distance Medley as events that all have the possibility to qualify for the Cyclones. 


He believes his team is ready to post season best times. He says pressure bursts pipes and pressure makes diamonds, it all depends on how you react to it.


Coach Brummer admits it’ll be a very tough district. Other teams joining Harlan at Atlantic Thursday include Atlantic, Carroll, Creston, Denison-Schleswig, Glenwood, Greene County, and Winterset.

(Adair) State qualifying track meets will be held around the state Thursday. Adair-Casey will be competing at Earlham.


The Bombers have several events they hope to get to state. Coach John Wolf lists the Long Jump, 100, 200, and 4X100 as events he thinks can not only get to state, but medal at state.


Traeton Jensen has the state’s 21st best long jump this year and is third in the district.  The 100 Meter Dash should be a great race between Adair-Casey’s Emmitt Wheatley and Owen Gibbons, of Madrid. Each have run 11.35 or better, ranking in the top 15 in the state. Wheatley also has one of the state’s best times in the 200. His 22.63 is Class 1A’s 2nd fastest time recorded on quikstats.


The 4X100 Meter Relay, which has medaled at state in two of the last three years, has clocked a season best of 45.65. Clayton Plowman, Charlie Terry, Emmitt Wheatley and Traeton Jensen make up that 4X100 this year for the Bombers.

(Oakland) The Riverside boys won the Creston Soccer Tournament on Saturday in come from behind fashion. The Bulldogs scored a goal in the final minute to force a shootout and outkicked the Panthers 4-2 to get the win.


Tanner Ford was able to tie the game up with his team-leading 12th goal of the season. Coach John Thomas says his team's ability to fight all the way to the end was a valuable lesson for the long run. Coach Thomas adds that teamwork has been the strength of his experienced squad. The Bulldogs start nine seniors and two juniors.


The team is now 10-2 on the season. Their only losses have come to larger schools, Harlan (1-0) and Thomas Jefferson (2-0). Tanner Ford's 12 goals are tops on the team while goalie David Anderson has been a force in the net. Anderson has stopped 91.1% of the attempts that have come his way, ranking third in the state in save percentage.

(Denison) The Hawkeye 10 Conference Boys Golf Tournament has been re-scheduled for Tuesday at Majestic Hills in Denison.


The boys field for the Hawkeye 10 conference is as strong as ever according to Harlan coach Chad Swanson. He looks at Creston and Atlantic as two of the leaders in the team race.


The list continues with Denison-Schleswig, Harlan, and Shenandoah as teams having strong seasons. It’s a deep grouping of individual standouts in the conference as well, with a trio of great seniors leading the way. Carson Whittington, of Creston, is the defending state champ while Evan Schuler, of Atlantic, and Ross Martens, of Harlan have each had great years.


But Swanson says don’t count out guys like Parker Eller, of Denison-Schleswig, Carlton Rahn, of Clarinda, Kobe Rhodes, of Glenwood, or Jackson Baker, of Shenandoah.


It’s a unique and challenging course at Denison that the teams will be competing on. Coach Swanson says his Cyclone squad is still looking for everyone to put together a good round at the same time. He looks for them to be in the mix in the top half or if things go well, the top third of the conference.


Harlan finished fourth with a team total of 320 at the Kuemper Catholic tournamnet on Saturday. They were just six strokes of the pace. Ross Martens was the medalist at that tournament with a 70.

(Anita) Anita’s Crestwood Hills Golf Course will serve as the host sight for Monday's Rolling Valley Conference Tournament. 
CAM is among a number of Rolling Valley Conference Schools whose boy’s golf team has benefited from some first-year senior track transfers. 
One of the team’s best performances on the year came just last week in a win over Adair-Casey when Brady Runyan took home runner-up medalist. 
Newcomers Runyan and Logan Dinkla have both been major contributors for the CAM boys golf team this season. They join Trent Jessen, Rem Vacek, Connor Wendt, Tyler McAfee,and Jarod McKee as the core varsity members. There hasn’t necessarily been a clear cut number one golfer throughout the season. Coach Wollum says the team is still looking for consistency, but does admit they are starting to play smarter golf.
Coach Wollum shares his goals for the conference tourney in interview below, saying he wants his team to be in the top half. Coach Wollum predicts Coon Rapids-Bayard to be the front runner with Glidden-Ralston and Exira-EHK in the hunt for 2nd. 

(Harlan) Harlan girls track coach Bill Hosack says his team went through the whole season healthy up until about two weeks ago. Now the Cyclones try to find out who is good to go for Thursday's conference track meet in Creston.


If healthy, Harlan might have an opportunity to best favorite Glenwood, according to Cyclone head man Bill Hosack. Hosack says the Rams depth makes them the team to beat.


The Cyclone's goal, Hosack says, is to come in all events. Entering the meet Harlan has been dominant in the relays holding the conferences best time in the 4X4, 4X2, 4X8, Spring Medley, and Distance Medley. Additionally, Mikayla Evers holds the best long jump in the Hawkeye 10 at 17-03.5


Evers in the 100, Allison Bruck in the 100M Hurdles, Asia Kloewer in the 400, and Bailey Kuhl in the 800 all hold the conferences second fastest time so far this season.

Atlantic senior Brooke Fletcher shot a 41 to add to her long list of medalist honors this season. Freshman Brooke Newell shook off a slow start to finish with a 42. The budding star's strong finish put her as the runner-up Medalist. Other scores for the Trojans saw Erin Olsen shoot 43 and Bailey Walter 44.


Coach Kathy Hobson says the whole lineup shot very well for a cold night. She'd like to continue to see four scores in the 41-44 range the rest of the season.

(Coon Rapids) Heading into Thursday's boys golf dual with Coon Rapids-Bayar, Exira-EHK golf coach Al Hjelle said his team would have to play very, very well to win. 


The Spartan didn't quite pull off the upset, but they did make quite a match of it before falling short 183-188.


Brady Frum contributed the low round for the Spartans with a 42 to take home co-Medalist honors. Other scores for Exira-EHK came from Chance Lauritsen (48), Nick Peppers (49), and Brett Johnson (49).



(Atlantic) Atlantic shot one of their best team rounds of the season Thursday night. The Trojans beat the Shenandoah Mustangs and the Red Oak Tigers with their 151 stroke total. Atlantic finished 15 strokes ahead of Shenandoah and well ahead of Red Oak's 216.


It's no surprise that Evan Schuler led the way for Atlantic and won Medalist Honors. Schuler shot a one-under par 34. Also contributing to the team score were Sam Renaud, Zac Stork, and Cooper Zablocki. All three shot 39's. Jake Olsen adn Kyle Nelson each came into the clubhouse with 42's.


Coach Ed DenBeste says it was a great team score on the back nine in tough cold temps.

(Griswold) The Griswold Tiger track team will look to contend with Shenandoah atop the team standings in the girls portion of their home co-ed meet tonight.


Griswold coach Andy Everett says the team the season has played out similar to how he expected them to this year. They've been led by Rebekah Topham who has the best time in the state in four events (400M Low Hurdles, 800, 1500, and 3000).


As the calendar flips to May, coach Everett looks at North-Linn as a potential state state favorite. He says his team's chances come down to how many points can they score, if any, in events not run by Topham.

(Elk Horn) The 7-7 Exira-EHK boys golf squad heads to Coon Rapids-Bayard for another dual tonight. The Spartans have four seniors at the top of their lineup, however that doesn't mean they have a lot of experience.


Track converts Nick Peppers and Brett Johnson are both in the first season out for organized golf. Those two have been in the #3 and #4 spots of the lineup according to coach Allen Hjelle. At the top of the pack are four-year golfing seniors Brady Frum and Chance Laurtisen. Coach Hjelle says Jared Hansen and Lane Ring are much improved with freshman Chris Paulsen getting some varstiy opportunities as well.


The defending Rolling Hills Conference Champions have just a couple of regular season competitions remaining before the season hits its stretch run. Coach Hjelle says the new Rolling Valley Conference will be much more competitive with Coon Rapids-Bayard appearing to be the favorite.

(Griswold) After bringing almost everyone back, the Griswold boys golf team entered the season with high expectations. As the season nears the stretch run, the Tigers haven’t disappointed.


Griswold golf coach Jason Reynolds was particularly pleased with the way his team performed their last time out in a win over AHST. They posted one of their best rounds of the season shooting a 165.


James and Jake Reynolds each shot 38’s in that competition. Coach Reynolds says James has been consistent at the of the lineup all year long while Jake has gotten hot lately. The rest of the team has provided a balanced attack.


Trey Oakleaf and Tyrel Peters have shaken off slow starts to emerge towards the top of the lineup.


Coach Reynolds adds that Tyler Wyman has been consistently in the low to mid 40’s and there’s good, on-going competition for the number six spot. BJ Schoning and Mo Kimpson have been in the mix for that last varsity spot throughout the season.


Coach Reynolds says overall he’s very happy with the direction and progress of the team this year.
