Midwest Sports Headlines: 11/10/17


November 10th, 2017 by Ric Hanson

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

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost broke a pelvis and several ribs during a fall on his property in Georgia. The team says the 62-year-old manager was working on a deer stand that gave way. Yost is an avid hunter. He underwent surgery in Atlanta and was to be transferred to a rehab facility. The team says he will need a wheelchair for a short time.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — No. 25 Iowa is on a roll as it heads into Camp Randall Stadium for a crucial Big Ten West division game against No. 6 Wisconsin. The confident Hawkeyes beat up on Ohio State last week. Now they face their second straight Top 10 opponent in the unbeaten Badgers, who can clinch a trip to the Big Ten title game with a victory.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs were Super Bowl favorites during a dynamic 5-0 start. They’ve lost three of their past four heading into their week off. The offense that was so good earlier in the season has slowed down, and lately has been unable to mask a struggling defense. But coach Andy Reid still has confidence in the AFC West leaders, who will face a much weaker schedule down the stretch.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Oklahoma State and Iowa State can still reach the Big 12 title game. But Saturday’s meeting might be an elimination game for two teams coming off losses that altered the trajectory of their season. The 12th-ranked Cowboys and 24th-ranked Cyclones are now tied with West Virginia for third in the conference behind Oklahoma and TCU, both 5-1 in the Big 12.

Atlantic’s Handel signs with UMKC softball


November 8th, 2017 by Chris Parks

Atlantic senior Alexis Handel signed on Wednesday morning to continue her softball and academic career at the University of Missouri Kansas City. The Trojan third baseman signed with her parents in attendance along with Atlantic Head Coach Terry Hinzmann and Assistant Coach Michelle Blake.

Handel has been a power hitter for the Trojans, racking up 58 hits and 17 homeruns last year for her 32-9 squad. Alexis also had 56 RBI’s to go along with a .509 batting average and .629 on base percentage. Handel also has been a strong defensive player for the Trojans with a .935 fielding percentage and only 6 errors last year.

Handel said it’s a dream come true to be able to play at the Division I level with UMKC and is excited and grateful for the opportunity. Atlantic Head Coach Terry Hinzmann said her stats speak for them-self with her performance on the field but her leadership has been her biggest asset. He said that he is happy all of her hard work is paying off with the chance to play DI ball.

The Kangaroos team she will be joining went 17-38 last season overall and 5-10 in the Western Athletic Conference. The Roos are coached by Meredith Smith-Neal.

Handel plans to study Health Sciences at UMKC.
