Kuemper Catholic 186, Atlantic 203 Denison-Schleswig 210. Medalist: Eve Kenkel, Kuemper Catholic, 44. Atlantic Scores: Alyssa Ginther 48, Baylee Newell 48, Hannah Alff 49, Anna Wieser 58, Cambry Miller 88, Belle Wickman 86. Atlantic Head Coach Kathy Hobson: “A birdie each for Baylee Newell and Hannah Alff – exciting for them!  Both birdies came on the par 3 #16 – tricky green to score on. Really pleased with how Hannah Alff bounced back from the Monday tournament and played the course tonight. Been waiting for her to score in the 40’s. As a team, we are having to take way to many penalty strokes. Our course management is costly to us.”

Atlantic Head Coach Ed DenBeste: “Start the day with sun and warm. With about 4 to 5 holes left the wind picked up and got cooler and cloudier. Nice score by Ben today. Struggled on 5 but finished with two birdies. Matt couldn’t get the putter going today. Good to see him stay at 40. Good to see Cyle stay in the 30s today.  Mason is continuing to get his score lower. Austin had some good holes and a few struggles. Needs to work on a few things yet. Nice to see Drey shoot better today. His score was close to counting today. Kuemper is a good team and had 4 back from last years state team. We had to shoot our best to win today. Good to see our guys shoot well to challenge them.  Next match is Thursday in Shenandoah.”

April 25th, 2018 by Ric Hanson

His winning time was 4:03.12. Emily Lipari edged Olympian Brenda Martinez to win the women’s division and dropping her personal record nearly three seconds in the process. And, Southeast Polk’s Sydney Milani set an all time Iowa high school record in the 400 hurdles at the Tiger Relays in Grinnell. Her time was 53.70 seconds which breaks the previous mark of 53.96 set by Hannah Willms of Dike New Hartford in 2010. Milani is a senior and going to Iowa State.

Midwest Sports Headlines: 4/25/18


April 25th, 2018 by Ric Hanson

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

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jay Bruce hit a tiebreaking homer in the 10th inning, Yoenis Cespedes launched a majestic, three-run shot and the New York Mets rallied to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-5. Bruce began the game batting .194 but broke out of his slump with three hits, including an RBI triple.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Lorenzo Cain homered while reaching base four times in his return to Kauffman Stadium as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Kansas City Royals 5-2 to open their two-game set. Travis Shaw added a three-run homer for the Brewers. Salvador Perez homered in his return from the disabled list for Kansas City.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Royals activated All-Star catcher Salvador Perez and outfielder Alex Gordon from the disabled list and put them in the lineup for their series opener against the Brewers. Kansas City also recalled left-hander Eric Stout from Triple-A Omaha, put right-hander Justin Grimm on the DL and optioned Cam Gallagher and Paulo Orlando to the Storm Chasers.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Brewers activated catcher Manny Pina from the disabled list and put him into the starting lineup for their series opener against the Kansas City Royals. They cleared roster space by optioning catcher Jacob Nottingham to Triple-A Colorado Springs. Pina was on the DL retroactive to April 13 with a strained left calf.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Brett Veach took over as the Chiefs’ general manager last summer, and already has made an imprint on the draft with trades involving a number of picks. Now, the young front office boss gets to finally make the crucial choices that Veach hopes will shore up a defense that struggled much of last season.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos tells The Associated Press his luncheon comment about coaches Urban Meyer of Ohio State and Jim Harbaugh of Michigan running a little bit scared in the wake of coach Scott Frost’s hiring was a bit tongue in cheek. Moos had said in an appearance at the Omaha Press Club he would need time to turn around the Cornhuskers but better days are ahead. The Huskers are coming off a 4-8 season.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State has added Colorado State transfer Prentiss Nixon. He will sit out next season and be eligible to play in 2019-2020. Nixon, a 6-foot-2 guard, averaged a team-high 16.2 points per game as a junior last season for the Rams. Nixon also hit 152 3-pointers in three seasons at Colorado State.

Iowa State men’s hoops adds transfer Nixon from Colorado State


April 24th, 2018 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State has added Colorado State transfer Prentiss Nixon, a 6-foot-2 guard who averaged a team-high 16.2 points per game as a junior last season for the Rams.

Nixon also hit 152 3-pointers in three seasons at Colorado State. He will sit out next season and be eligible to play in 2019-2020, coach Steve Prohm said Tuesday.

The addition of Nixon, even if only for one season, would help bolster the Cyclones in the event that star point guard Lindell Wigginton bolts for the NBA. Wigginton is unlikely to be drafted this spring, but that could change if he builds on an impressive freshman campaign.
