Iowa State announces spring football schedule, no spring game for second straight year

Sports

January 16th, 2019 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State Athletics Department announced today the football team’s 2019 spring football practice schedule will begin on March 12 and conclude on April 20.  This year’s spring schedule will not include a spring football game.

“As a result of the uncertain weather conditions we face each spring in Iowa, plus the site preparation work that will begin this Spring for the new Sports Performance Center project, Coach Campbell and I have decided to not schedule a spring football game,” Iowa State Athletics Director Jamie Pollard said.  “Similar to last year, Coach Campbell and his staff can use that day to conduct a 15th spring practice which they feel is more beneficial for the overall development of the student-athletes and the football program.”

This will be the second year in a row the football team did not host a spring football game. The 2018 game was cancelled due to inclement weather.

Iowa State football will host its annual Pro Day on March 26.

CAM Sweeps RVC Doubleheader from Coon Rapids-Bayard

Sports

January 16th, 2019 by Jim Field

CAM won both the girls and boys games Tuesday night against Rolling Valley Conference rival Coon Rapids-Bayard in Anita.

The Cougars took control early, jumping out to an 18-1 first quarter lead, in posting a 74-34 win.  Four players hit double figures for CAM as they used full-court defense to create a number of easy baskets and hit eight three pointers.  Sammi Jahde had a game-high 18 points, Zoey Baylor scored 15, Macy Ticknor had 11 and Paige McAfee finished with ten.  The Cougars improved to 12-1 with the win.

The Crusaders were led by freshman Brynn Bass with 15 points.

The boys game was close at the half, but the Cougars got a spark off the bench to overwhelm the Crusaders in a 52-28 win.

DeShawn Carr scored 18 off the bench, including four from the arc.  Both teams were deliberate offensively early on and both had trouble scoring.  It was 4-2 Crusaders late in the first quarter when Carr hit a pair of quick baskets to give CAM a 6-4 lead after one quarter.  They would never trail again, as they held a 17-15 halftime edge.

A big 19-5 third quarter advantage put the Cougars in command.  Joining Carr in double figures for the Cougars was Lane Spieker with 15.  CAM improves to 5-7.

Coon Rapids-Bayard was led by Ben Obert with 10 points, 14 below his average.

Here is the latest Mid-America sports news from The Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have activated right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif from injured reserve and waived safety Ron Parker ahead of Sunday’s AFC championship game against the New England Patriots. The Chiefs’ best run blocker, Duvernay-Tardif started the first five games before breaking his leg against Jacksonville.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots were dealt a blow prior to their final two regular-season games when Josh Gordon was suspended for a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy. But what could have created a hole in the receiving group has been filled by the group’s oldest member. At age 32, Julian Edelman has put together back-to-back vintage performances and is expected to again be a big factor in the AFC championship game.

NEW YORK (AP) — Jordan Goodwin scored 20 points, made six assists and grabbed nine rebounds and Saint Louis held off Fordham 63-60 to win its fifth straight. Javon Bess hit three 3s for 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Billikens (13-4, 4-0 Atlantic 10 Conference), who never trailed in building a 34-32 halftime lead.
