(Kimballton) Rachel Smith has tossed another perfect game. The Exira-EHK junior star allowed no hits, no walks, and no runs in a Spartan 2-0 win over Glidden-Ralston. It was her 2nd perfect outing of the year. 


Smith now has six no hitters on the season and is allowing only 1.3 his per game and 1.2 walks per game. She hasn't given up an earned run all season and if she were to allow an earned run in her next inning pitched it would raise her ERA to just 0.06. With 219 strikeouts, Smith leads Class 1A in that category. 


Maggie Rasmussen had the big hit to break a scoreless tie. Rasmussen singled in Smith and Sophia Peppers in the bottom of the 6th inning for the game's only two runs. 


Exira-EHK bounces back from their first loss of the season the previous night to Charter Oak-Ute. The Spartans are now 17-1 on the year.

(Anita) The CAM baseball squad snapped a three game losing streak with a win over Boyer Valley in a resumed game Wednesday night. 


Right after the Cougars polished off a 15-0 win against Boyer Valley they went on to beat Woodbine 8-6. That puts CAM at 7-10 on the year. The Cougars have managed to remain competitive despite starting three freshman, one 8th grader and three sophomores. 


Coach Dan Dauerghty says the team is looking for more consistency and hoping to get on a roll late in the regular season. He says they are still in search of a win over one of the top teams in the conference. An opportunity to do that comes Friday when they meet Coon Rapids-Bayard. 


The numbers show that offense has been CAM's strength so far this year. With a .301 team average they rank third in the conference. However, coach Daugherty says the team still needs to get more clutch hits. The Cougars have just 5 games remaining in the regular season.

(Greenfield) Less than a week and a half remains in the softball regular season and we’ll have softball Thursday tonight on KSOM when Nodaway Valley takes on East Union.


Nodaway Valley has just two teams with winning records on their remaining schedule giving them a good opportunity to gain some confidence heading into the Class 2A Regional Tournament where they will see 8-10 Southwest Valley. The Wolverines themselves are 7-10 heading into Wednesday's contest with Orient-Macksburg. They enter play tonight with a .259 team average and are scoring five runs per game. Paige McElfish leads the offense hitting .391 with 4 home runs. Josie Carter is hitting .375 and has smacked one out of the park this season.


Nodaway Valley’s strength has been their pitching where they have a 3.16 ERA ranking 4th in the Pride of Iowa Conference. McElfish has tossed nearly every inning this season for a group that shook off a slow start to the season. Nodaway Valley began just 1-5, but they’ve now won 5 of their last 7.


This is their second meeting against East Union this season, they won the first game 11-2. East Union is 3-13 on the year.

(Area) IKM-Manning will meet AHST and Underwood will face Logan-Magnolia in the semi-finals of the Western Iowa Conference softball tournament. The semi-finals and finals will be played all on Thursday with three games to be held in Irwin.


IKM-Manning picked up their 6th straight win and the last three of them have been shutout wins by 10 runs or more. 8th grader Peyton Gross tossed a 3-inning 1-hitter and lowered her season ERA to 1.13. She has an 11-0 record. IKM-Mannings office has scored 10 or more runs in 4 of their last 6 contests. Last night Carly Irlmeier, Miranda Hansen, Courtney Monson, and Cristyn Eischeid each drove in two runs each while Monson, Eischeid and Jessica Singsank each had multi-hit games. IKM-Manning scored 9 runs in the 2nd inning to take a commanding lead. The Wolves are 17-3.


AHST got a 3-for-3 day with 3 runs driven in by Haley Constable as they beat Tri-Center 4-2. The Lady Vikes have now won 7 of their last 8 games and are 12-5 overall. Angeline Enke was 2-2 batting with a walk. AHST led 4-0 going into the bottom of the 7th and held off the Trojan's comeback attempt. Jessica Butcher allowed 9 hits but didn't walk anybody holding Tri-Center to just 2 runs.


Missouri Valley snapped a 3 game losing streak with their win over an Underwood team that had eliminated Audubon 6-5 earlier in the night. It was a close game most of the way with Missouri Valley posting a 3-run 6th to extend a 4-1 lead to 7-1. Underwood rallied int he 7th but couldn't get any closer than the 7-3 final. Underwood had beaten Audubon 6-5 earlier in the night.


Logan-Magnolia gets a win over Treynor improving to 14-3 in the process. Lo-Ma now gets a chance to avenge one of their 2 conference setbacks when they host Missouri Valley in the semi-finals on Thursday.

(Carroll) Timely hits and solid pitching lifted Atlantic past Kuemper, Catholic-Carroll 3-0 Tuesday night in a high school baseball game at Carroll Stadium. 


The Trojans showed some depth on the mound after using up their number one and two pitchers Monday night in a double header loss to St. Albert. So it was Tristen Benn Tuesday and the junior right hander tossed a three hit shut-out.


The junior worked in methodical fashion early, retiring the first ten batters he faced before the Knights mustered a hit in the top of the fourth inning. Benn had to work out of only one bases loaded jam in the sixth inning; otherwise he struck out three batters and gave up only one free base in his first win of the season on the hill. The Trojans also played solid defense  committing only one error.


Atlantic grabbed a 1-0 lead in the top of the first on Joey Walkers’ triple followed by Brendon Holmes RBI single. They pushed the score to 2-0 in the second when Brody Petersen scored from third on Collin Baker’s RBI fielder’s choice.  Seth Nelson scored the third run in the top of the seventh. He led the inning off with a two-bagger; was pushed to third on Zach Nelson’s SAC bunt, and scored moments later on Joey Walkers’ Sacrifice fly to center field. Then Benn closed out the game by shutting down the Knights in order for the 3-0 win.  


Atlantic scored thier three runs on nine hits led by Brendon Holmes who finished the night 3-4 with an RBI. Joey Walker went 2-3 with a triple and a single and an RBI. Four others punched out singles including; Logan Steffens, Tyler Thomas, Brody Peterson, and Collin Baker.


Tyler Williams, Ben Hicks and Trevor Feilmeyer each had singles for the 8-15 Kuemper Knights. Atlantic extends their record to 11-7 and travel to Glenwood Thursday night.

(Area) Underwood, IKM-Manning, Treynor, and Logan-Magnolia all moved on to the semi-finals of the Western Iowa Conference Baseball Tournament with wins on Monday. 


Underwood scored a 7-run 3rd inning to cruise past Tri-Center 11-1. The #1 seeded Eagles improve to 12-2 overall. Tri-Center had defeated Audubon 4-2 to advance to the nightcap, but have now been eliminated. 


(9-7) IKM-Manning won a close one, 3-2, over Missouri Valley. Jared Volstedt pitched the win striking out 7 batters in the complete game with 9 hits and 1 BB given up. Volstedt and Joe Thraen each had two hits, but the big blow came form freshman Cody Chapman with a three-run homer in the 2nd.

Treynor is now 15-4 on the season after topping Riverside 15-4. Riverside had topped Griswold 9-0 in the first game of the doubleheader. Treynor took advantage of 9 walks to score 15 runs on just 6 hits. Grant Mantell, a sophomore pitcher, tossed five innings and struck out 6 batters while giving up 5 hits.


Logan-Magnolia stayed hot, the Panthers have won 5 straight to improve to 14-5 overall. They've beaten top two seeds Treynor and Underwood in the span of that 5 game win streak. Last night it was AHST they downed 9-2, behind the pitching of freshman Austin Haner. Haner struck out 7 batters in 5 IP and gave up 3 hits with 2 BB. The offense pounded out 12 hits with Jarek Richardsen, Jamison Muxfeldt, Brady Charbonneau, and Brett Greenwood all having two hits each.


Wedesday's Semi-fianls will be a double header at Logan. Game one is 12-2 Underwood against 9-7 IKM-Manning. Game two is 15-4 Treynor against 14-5 Logan-Magnolia


(Harlan) The Harlan Cyclones (12-4 overall) continue to churn out Hawkeye 10 Conference Baseball wins. They've won six consecutive conference contests and are 10-2 in the league. 


Last night's win was a big one, 7-6, over Denison-Schleswig. The loss for the Monarchs drops them to 7-3 in the league. Harlan matches up with Lewis Central tonight. The Titans still have a chance to win the league, they are 7-4. St. Albert also has just two conference losses after sweeping a doubleheader at Atlantic Monday. Glenwood (7-6), Creston (6-6), and Atlantic (7-6) remain alive in the hunt. 


Coach Steve Daeges says his team battled back after falling behind early. They broke a 5-5 tie with two runs in the bottom of the 6th and held on for the win. Coach Daeges says defense and throwing strikes have been the keys to success for the team this season.

(Avoca) It's been a strong year for the Lady Vikes of AHST in softball as they enter this week's Western Iowa Conference Tournament with an 11-5 overall record. By comparison, that win total matches their number of victories from all of last year. 


Coach Jamie Braman says a big part of that has been the team's defense. They've limited oppontents to only 3.9 runs allowed this year and have given up just 17 unearned runs on the season. 


Coach Braman says junior pitcher Jessica Butcher has been a steady leader for the team. The Lady Vikes have just one senior and rely on three freshman in the starting lineup. Butcher has pitched every inning for the team this season and holds a 3.07 ERA.


In the tourney's first round they'll see a Tri-Center team that they split a doubleheader with earlier this season. Both games were decided by one run and coach Braman says the team is excited for another chance to play the Trojans.

(Atlantic) Atlantic swept St. Albert in a softball doubleheader Monday night at Atlantic.


The Trojans put the first game away in the bottom of the fourth inning scoring 12 runs on 11-hits.Fifteen batters went to the plate. Emily Mitchell, went three for three to lead the Trojans in hitting. Mitchell scored two runs and drove in another. Brooke Newell smacked two doubles, Erin Olsen, Leah Tpjekes, and Tori Bruck had two hits each. Molle Welter, Tori Bruck, Gabby Jordahl, Alexis Handel, and Marin Mcnees each had one hit. Tori Bruck pitched the four-inning shut-out, striking out four batters and allowed no walks.  


In the second game, the Trojans scored 13 runs on 12 hits. Atlantic scored six runs in the bottom of the first, plated a run in the second, and finished with six runs in the bottom of the third to win 13-1.


Erin Olsen, Leah Tjepkes, Brooke Newell and Tori Bruck  had two-hits a piece. Emily Mitchell, Mollee Welter, Tori Bruck, Gabby Jordahl, Alexis Handel, and Maren Mcnees had one hit each.    


Ally Anderson picked up the win for the Trojans. Anderson struck out six batters, allowed on earned run, and walked no one.

(Griswold) 10-13 Griswold meets 11-13 Riverside in the first round of the Western Iowa Conference Tournament. The winner moves on to see #1 seed IKM-Manning in the nightcap of a doubleheader at Irwin Tuesday night.


Inconsistent is the word coach Peggy Hansen uses to describe her team’s season. She says when they are at their best they can play with anyone on their schedule.


But at other times she says the team has struggled giving up a big inning which has led has led to four losses by 10 run rule. In the first round of the conference tournament they play a Riverside team that they beat 8-4 the first time through in the regular season.



#1 seed IKM-Manning awaits the winner of that matchup. The Wolves are 15-3 on the season, they’ve won 13 straight.

(Ames) Iowa State women’s basketball’s Hallie Christofferson was recently nominated for the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year.

Christofferson is one of 446 female student-athletes nominated for the award across all NCAA sports and divisions, and is one of 71 women’s basketball players.


The Woman of the Year award honors graduating female student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate careers in academics, athletics, service and leadership.

Christofferson recently wrapped up her final season with the Cyclones, finishing sixth all-time in scoring (1,709) and eighth all-time in rebounds (762). The forward from Hamlin, Iowa, led the team in scoring for the second-consecutive year with 18.4 points per game. She also averaged 7.2 rebounds while shooting 46.1 percent from the field en route to her second-consecutive All-American campaign.

Each conference then selects up to two women from the nominees to represent the conference. The Woman of the Year selection committee selects the top 30 honorees – 10 from each division – from the conference nominees.

From among those 30 candidates, the selection committee determines the top three in each division and announces the top nine finalists in September. The NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics will then vote from among the finalists to determine the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year.

The top 30 honorees will be honored, and the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year winner will be announced, at the annual ceremony in Indianapolis on SundayOct. 19.

(Atlantic) Logan Steffens (pictured)  and Joey Walker led Atlantic in a 7-1 win over Clarinda in a Hawkeye Ten Conference baseball game at Atlantic Thursday night.


Steffans reached base on all four of his trips to the plate and ended the night 2-2 with three RBI’s. Joey Walker was 3-4 with two RBI’s.


Atlantic scored seven runs on nine hits... plated two runs in the first, three in the fourth, and two in the sixth. Clarinda finished the night with one run on three hits.


Zach Nelson, who was hit by a pitch to lead off the bottom of the first inning, got the wheels turning for the Trojans. He stole second, went to third on Walkers single and scored on Brendon Holmes sacrifice fly. Logan Steffans RBI single sent Walker across the plate to jump start the Trojans.


Atlantic extended their lead to 5-0 in the fourth. This time it was the bottom half of the batting order that helped produce three more runs. Ryan Hawkins, Collin Baker, and Seth Nelson all had base knocks to lead off the inning; And Walker provided the big punch with a two RBI single after one run had already crossed on a ground out.  


Clarinda mustered a run in the fifth on Troy Aldrich single and Dedric Kettwick RBI walk with the bases loaded to close the gap to 5-1. However that would be as close as the Cardinals would get. The Trojans moved two more runs across in the sixth. Zach Nelson reached base on a fielder’s choice, Walker singled and Steffans smacked a two RBI double to extend their lead to 7-1. Tristen Benn closed the door on the Cardinals in the seventh with two outs strikeout. Joey Walker picked up the win. Benn got the save.


The Cardinals who drop to 2-11, scattered three hits in the contest from the bats of Austin Smith, Troy Aldrich, and J.J. Clark.


Atlantic moves to 10-5 and host Red Oak Friday night.

(Kimballton) A season of dominance for Exira-EHK in softball continued last night with a win over Ar-We-Va 4-0. The Spartan softball team is a perfect 13-0 on the season and their average margin of victory is over 8 runs per game. 
Coach Jana Smith says she's been satisfied with the season so far and notes the offense has been much improved. That offense is hitting .298 as a group with 7 home runs. Coach Smith says one of the biggest threats to any team's season is complacency. She admits that's been something the team has had to deal with throughout a season featuring several shutout and blowout wins. 
Exira-EHK narrowly missed out on the state tournament in both 2012 and 2103, coming up just short in back-to-back regional finals. But they have graduated only two seniors in that span. 
Including tonight's contest with Glidden-Ralston, the Spartans have just eight regular season games remaining before they attempt to take things one step farther in the 2014 regional tournament. 


(Audubon) The Audubon Wheelers picked up their third win in the last calendar week and their fourth overall win of the season last night. The Wheelers bested Griswold by a final score of 11-4. 


Riley Jones hit a triple and a homer, he drove in four runs in the game. The 11 runs for the Wheelers are a season high. Tyler Reibhoff and Elijah Zaiger combined to pitch the win. Coach Sean Birks says the two underclassmen were effective. Reibhoff, an 8th grader, limited Griswold through the first 5 innings while Zaiger, a sophomore, slammed the door shut in the 6th and 7th. 


The Wheelers are the #8 seed heading into next week's conference tournament. They'll take on Tri-Center in the first game.

(Adair) CAM improves to 5-7 with a 9-2 win over Adair-Casey on Wednesday on the road. 


Leadoff hitter Michael Holste set the tone in the top of the 1st inning with a sharply hit single. He would score 2 batters later when Trace Ticknor's ground ball to 2nd base resulted in an error. T. Ticknor also scored in the 1st on a Drew Ticknor RBI hit and CAM never looked back. The Cougars added single runs in the 2nd and 3rd plus 3 runs in the 5th and 2 runs in the 6th. 


Michael Holste finished 2-5 with a run and an RBI, Jared McKee went 1-4 with a run scored, Trace Ticknor was on base 4 times and scored 2 runs, Drew Ticknor drove in a run and scored twice in a 2-3 day at the plate, Austin Chester finished 2-4 and scored a run, Marcus Daugherty scored twice and had an RBI single, and Jerry Carr went 2-4 with 2 RBI. 


Trace Ticknor pitched a good outing for CAM allowing only three hits and five walks. Three of those walks came in the final inning. Chris Draman and Logan Dinkla scored the runs for CAM. Drew Steckelberg, Brad Patterson, and Blake Leonard had the Bombers hits. Adair-Casey drops to 1-10 on the year.

(Adair) Mackenzie Schwenke posted her best pitching performance of the year in a 7-2 CAM win over Adair-Casey on Wednesday. Schwenke struck out 14 of the 29 batters she faced allowing 4 hits and 5 walks in the victory.


CAM led 1-0 for most of the game as the Cougars scored first with a single tally in the 2nd. Shianne Cavin had a two out walk and Kourtnie Stephenson drove her in with a hit. The game would stay 1-0 all the way until the 6th when the Cougars opened things up with a five run inning.


Cavin, Stephenson, Erin Daugherty, Tehya Hansen, and Rachel Riker all scored in the inning. Daugherty, Hansen, and Riker all had RBI's in the 6th. Adair-Casey's lone two runs came in the 6th. Zoey Dinkla and Kayla Anderson each crossed the plate. Hannah Jorgenson had an RBI groundout in the inning. CAM added on one more run in the 7th when Emma Dorsey walked and eventually scored on a Daugherty groundout, to give the Cougars the 7-2 win.


It's the 2nd win of the year for CAM who has swept the regular season series with Adair-Casey.

(Anita) The CAM baseball team takes on Adair-Casey Wednesday on KSOM. The Cougars enter the game with a 4-7 overall record. 
With a young group, Coach Dan Daugherty says two of the main this the Cougars are in search of halfway through the season are consistency and confidence. 
Senior Michael Holste leads the way at the plate with a .519 average through the first nine games. Coach Daugherty says he’s one of three offensive leaders for the team.
Ticknor has an average of .455 and had hit three home runs in his first games back from injury while McKee sported a .364 batting average through the team’s first nine games. With only one senior and one junior in the starting lineup, CAM has a lot of hope for the future.
CAM defeated Adair-Casey 10-0 in their first meeting of the season. We’ll have both the baseball and softball game on the air Wednesday. Baseball is up first with pregame at around 5:50p.m.
CAM enters on the heels of a 13-5 loss to West Harrison on Monday night.

(Audubon) Tri-Center has won four straight softball games to improve to 8-6 overall on the season and 8-4 in Western Iowa Conference play. The Trojans won game one 11-1 and followed it up with a 9-6 triumph in game two. 


In the first game all nine starters were on base at least twice. Kelly Manhart, Megan Rohatch, and Hannah Fox all scored two runs each while the bottom of the order provided the RBI's. The 5-9 hitters in the order combined for 8 runs driven in with Stephanie Nelson, Hailee Hansen, and Brenna Rodenburg driving in two runs each. Tri-Center had 10 hits and 10 walks in the win. They scored three runs in the first, one in the third, four in the fourth, and three in the fifth. 


Brenna Rodenburg allowed only two hits and one walk to pickup the win in the circle. Emily Haubrich scored the lone run for Audubon, she doubled and came around to score on wild pitches. Madison Hagedorn had the only other Audubon hit in the first game. 


Game two was much more competetive. Tri-Center raced out to a 3-0 lead only to see Audubon tie it at 3 in the bottom of the third inning. Tri-Center responded immediately with a 3 run 4th to reclaim the lead. They would never trail the rest of the way. Audubon did close the gap to as close as one run at 6-5 in the 4th, but Tri-Center added single runs in the 5th, 6th, and 7th, to claim the 9-6 victory.


Audubon drops to 2-11 on the season.

(Elk Horn) It's been quite a week for the Exira-EHK Spartan baseball team. They've scored 41 runs through three games this week and posted a season high 17 tallies in their win over Adair-Casey last night. The game ended via the 10-run rule in 5 innings with the Spartans on top 17-6. 


Drew Peppers tagged a three run homer and drove in four runs in the game. He was one of several bright spots for the Spartans at the plate as they drew 12 walks and hammered out 8 hits in the five inning contest. Lucas Schwery, Austin Malloy, and Joe Harris all scored three runs each while Jarred Hansen, Drew Buckholt, and Tate Simpson all score two runs apiece. In addition to Peppers driving in four runs, Zack Kliefoth added RBI's number 22 and 23 on the season plus Brady Hansen and Tyler Jacobsen each drove in runs. 


Adair-Casey scored six runs despite not picking up a hit in the game. Connor Westergaard and Brad Patterson each scored twice as all the Bombers offense came from walks and wild pitches. Patterson and James Grubbs each had RBI groundouts. 


Brady Hansen and Drew Peppers combined to throw the five no-hit innings for the Spartans. Hansen walked five batters in two-plus innings and struck out six. Peppers tossed the final three innings surrendering only one walk and striking out five. 


The Spartans go to 8-2 on the year. Adair-Casey drops to 1-6 on the year.

(Harlan) A 9-run third inning for Harlan lifted the Cyclones past Atlantic in Hawkeye 10 Conference Softball Tuesday night at Harlan.


Harlan opened up a 1-0 game by posting the nine run 3rd on five hits, one walk, two hit batters, and two Atlantic errors. Logan Schaben began the big 3rd inning with an infield single and the Cyclones loaded the bases with walk and a hit batter. From their Kassie Craig drove in a run on a bases loaded walk, Ashley Kolbe had an RBI single. Shaben, Brenda Hopkins and Julia Sorfendon all had hits in the inning.


For the game, Schaben, Hopkins, Sorfendon, and Kolbe all scored two runs apiece in the 11-0 win for Harlan. The run support was more than enough to back Schaben’s standout pitching performance. She allowed just two hits and didn’t walk a batter while striking out five hitters in five shutout innings.


Harlan goes to 8-3 overall and remains unbeaten in Hawkeye 10 play. Atlantic falls to 7-4 overall. Mollee Welter and Gabby Jordahl had the lone hits for Atlantic.


(Atlantic) Atlantic graduates Evan Schuler and Brooke Fletcher shot 73 today at the Class 1A Co-Ed State Golf Tournament in Webster City. Their score tied the number posted by champions Makayla Ernst and Justin Craft of East Sac County.


Riverside also had a top ten finishing duo in the field. Eric Rock and Ellen Johnson shot an 80 placing 7th.   


(Adair) The 1-5 Adair-Casey baseball team travels to take on the Exira-EHK Spartans Wednesday. The game will air on KSOM.


Coach Bireline admits the teams youth has shown early on. Adair Casey has a very young group this year and has struggled with pitching and defense, but coach Chris Bireline has seen some good things at the plate.  Brad Patterson and Drew Steckelberg have been among the leaders in the batter’s box.


Adair-Casey is coming off of a 13-3 loss against Glidden-Ralston on Monday. The Bombers lone win this season came against Boyer Valley. They beat Boyer Valley 10-5 on Friday. Patterson, Steckelberg, and Chris Draman all had two hits in the win.

(Treynor) Tri-Center and St. Albert will meet up this evening for a trip to state in Class 1A Girls Soccer. That's been a familiar regional tournament matchup in recent years with St. Albert getting the last laugh each of the last few years.


Tri-Center comes in at 15-3 overall, they are ranked 9th in the state, and have won 8 in a row. The Trojans are led by Kaylee Grote, one of the state's elite offensive players. Grote has 161 goals in her career including 37 this year. St. Albert enters at 12-8, the Falcons upset #13 Underwood 6-1 in the regional semi's.  


This will be the 2nd meeting between these squads this year. Tri-Center beat St. Albert 1-0 in the regular season. Coach Jeff Lefeber admits his team cleared a mental hurdle in that matchup and adds that the tough schedule with games against Glenwood, Spencer, and Abraham Lincoln should be a benefit tonight.

(Avoca) Trailing by one run heading into the bottom of the 7th inning, AHST was able to rally back for a win over Riverside Wednesday in Western Iowa Conference baseball action.


The Vikings got a game tying hit from Dylan Robinson and then a game winning hit by Steven Jacobsen to down the Bulldogs 5-4. The win sends AHST to 4-2 on the season. The squads only setbacks have come against Griswold last week and Tri-Center, who they split a doubleheader with on Monday. 


In addition to the big hits by Robinson and Jacobsen, Nathan Eggers delivered a key RBI single earlier in the game. AHST scored two runs in the 3rd to gab a 3-1 advantage, but Riverside slowly chipped away and led 4-3 through five before the Vikings rallied at the end. 


Next up for the Vikings is a trip to Audubon on Friday. The Wheelers are 1-3 so far this year.

(Elk Horn) Exira-EHK stayed perfect with an 18-0 win at CAM last night in softball, dropping the Cougars to 1-4 on the year.
Kennedy Madsen and Sophia Peppers both homered and Rachel Smith struck out 14 of 15 batters in a five inning perfect game as the Spartans rolled to a lopsided win.  Exira-EHK never trailed against a shorthanded CAM team Wednesday, they scored three runs in the 1st, one in the 2nd, five in the 3rd, and one in the 4th to lead 10-0 heading into the fifth inning. The Spartans led off the fifth with four straight pinch-hitters, all of whom reached safely. It ended up being an eight run frame to widen an already comfortable advantage. 
Rachel Smith didn't allow a walk or a hit and the Spartans had no errors. A fourth inning groundout by Rachel Riker was the only thing seperating Smith from every out being a 'K.' Smith is now withing striking distance of reaching 1,000 career strikeouts in Exira-EHK's big game against Charter Oak-Ute Friday. Smith has given up just four hits in six starts. She's had four no-hitters.
Exira-EHK had 11 hits in the win and 12 different players scored a run. CAM's biggest highlights came when catcher Kourtnie Stephenson threw out two potential base stealers. 


(Anita) High School Softball comes your way on KSOM tonight if field conditions allow. Exira-EHK at CAM is the matchup lined up for this evening.

Exira-EHK comes in at 5-0 the Spartans have been dominant to start the season. Starting pitcher Rachel Smith is yet to allow an earned run and has a strikeout rate of over 17 per game. CAM is 1-0 at home this season, having posted a 20-10 win over rival Adair-Casey in Anita on May 28th. The Cougars pounded out 16 hits in that game.


Pregame coverage tonight will get underway at around 5:45 p.m.

(Oakland) The Boys State Soccer Tournament kicks off tomorrow at noon in Des Moines. Riverside will take on Mid-Prairie-Wellman in the first round at 12:10p.m. on Field 8.


Riverside comes in at 16-2, the Bulldogs have won 13 straight games. They are making their 2nd straight trip to state. First round opponent Mid-Prairie, Wellman, winners of 9 in a row, comes in at 15-2 on the year.


Coach John Thomas says one big advantage his team has over their opponent is the experience of playing at state last year. Because of that he thinks his squad will play more relaxed. He admits there is a lot of pressure on the team.


Riverside has been solid in several areas this year, but coach Thomas says the thing that stands out is their defense. The Bulldogs have posted seven shutouts this season. David Anderson has been among the state leaders in save percentage all season long. He's stopped 91.2% of shots.


Riverside took out AHST and St. Albert en route to the state tourney. Coach Thomas says beating St. Albert proved that they are worthy of going to state.

(Kimballton) The dominance of Exira-EHK junior pitcher Rachel Smith was on display again Monday night when the Spartans beat West Harrison 8-0 in Kimballton. The junior pitcher didn't allow a walk or a hit in 7 shutout innings. 


On the season Smith has not given up an earned run, just three unearned runs is all that the Spartan opponents have been able to manange. Exira-EHK is 5-0 on the season. Smith struck out 17 batters in the dominant pitching performance Monday night. Her 17.8 strikeout per game rate would be a single season state record if she can continue the pace. 


Offensively R. Smith and Kennedy Madsen each had three hits for Exira-EHK. The 8 runs was a new season high for the Spartans who will be back in action at home tonight against Audubon.


(Marshalltown) Through 18 holes of the Class 1A Girls State Golf Tournament at American Legion Golf Course Guthrie Center sits in 6th place. The Tigers shot a 416 as a group yesterday in round one.

Guthrie Center is 13 strokes back of 5th place Newell-Fonda and 61 away from leader Grundy Center. Grundy Center leads the team race by 15 strokes over New London.


(Harlan) Nate Gettys slugged two extra base hits, made a fantastic diving catch in center field, and scored 2 runs to spark Harlan in a 9-2 win over Kuemper Catholic. 


Kuemper Catholic dented the scoreboard first with a single run in top of the third, but Harlan responded with 3 runs in the bottom of the inning and never looked back. Gettys led off the 3-run 3rd with a shallow double down the right field line. Adam Juhl was hit by a pitch and Kuemper Catholic got back to back strikeouts to nearly get out of trouble, but then the Knights committed consecutive 2-out errors to allow Gettys, Juhl, and Derek Leinen to all score in the inning. Harlan's Mitch Kramer led of the 4th inning with a double and Gettys hit a triple to boost the cause in a 4-run 4th inning to put Harlan on top comfortably. Harlan took advantage of more Kuemper Catholic errors in the 4th, the Knights commited 8 in the game. Harlan's final two tallies came in the 5th when Brett Croghan popped up in the middle of the infield but it dropped for a hit and Kramer had a hit. Juhl had an RBI single in the 5th as Harlan led 9-1 at that point. Kuemper could only get one run closer the rest of the way, scoring a single run in the 6th as Ben Hicks led of the inning with a walk, moved over on an Adam Schleisman hit, and scored on a Trevor Fielmeier base hit.


Croghan is the winning pitcher for Harlan going five innings with 5 K's allowing 3 hits and only 1 walk. Croghan allowed only 1 ER. Harlan is now 2-1 on the season. Adam Schleisman takes the loss for the Knights. He struck out 7 in 4 IP. Schleisman allowed six hits and one walk for the 3-3 Knights.
