Matt Gearheart  83  8th place
Zac Stork  78  Runner-up medalist  2nd
Nate Gifford  95

Comments on the tournament from Atlantic Boys Golf Coach Ed DenBeste: “Going into this meet, I knew they boys were pretty tired.  We had traveled around the state for several meets and I was hoping that we weren’t too tired.  Great to see our team get the win today with a good score of 323 in the wind.  Denison is a good course but very tough with a strong wind.  When you have 5 of your 6 golfers in the top 10, you know you have played a good solid round.  Zac played great.  He had some struggles earlier in the week but this was a great round for him.  Jake had played well all day and just had two bad holes at the end.  The par 3s on the back are difficult.  Ben and Kyle played solid today.  This was Matt Gearheart’s first round here so it was great to see him shoot a good score of 83.  Nate had a nice round as well especially after being sick yesterday.  I know he will get that score down.  Great win for our team!!!!!”

Iowa’s defense looks strong heading into 2016

Sports

April 23rd, 2016 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa had hoped that the return of star defensive end Drew Ott would fill out its defense. The Hawkeyes should be stout on that side of the ball anyway.

Iowa suffered its first major loss in 2016 when the NCAA denied Ott’s appeal for an extra year of eligibility because of a medical hardship. But the Hawkeyes should still have one of the best defenses in the Big Ten next fall, with seven starters back from a unit that allowed just 19 points a game last season.

Iowa, which went 12-2 and 8-0 in conference play last season, concluded spring practice with a scrimmage Saturday at Kinnick Stadium in which its defense outpaced its offense.

Chiefs GM Dorsey thinks LB Houston will play this season

Sports

April 23rd, 2016 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs general manager John Dorsey expects Pro Bowl pass rusher Justin Houston to play this season, even though surgery to repair his torn ACL could take up to 12 months of recovery time. Dorsey made the prediction during a news conference Friday to discuss the NFL draft.

Houston hurt his left knee during a game against Buffalo midway through last season, and at the time it was thought to be a hyperextension. He returned to play sparingly in the playoffs, and an arthroscopic procedure after the season revealed his ligament was not functioning properly.

Houston had surgery to repair the ACL in February, and Dorsey said that he’s “ahead of schedule” in his recovery. But he declined to say when Houston will be able to play next season.

Myers has 3 hits, 3 RBIs lead Padres to 4-1 win vs Cardinals

Sports

April 23rd, 2016 by Ric Hanson

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Wil Myers had a solo homer among his three hits and drove in three runs, and Andrew Cashner threw six strong innings to pitch the San Diego Padres to a 4-1 victory against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night. The Padres have won four of six games. Myers homer to right-center off Adam Wainwright with one out in the first was estimated at 418 feet.

Myers hit a sacrifice fly in the third to score Cashner (1-1), who beat out a leadoff bunt single and advanced to third on Jon Jay’s single to right. Myers’ third hit was an RBI double in the seventh. Cashner’s only mistake was allowing Randal Grichuk’s homer to left-center with two outs in the fourth, his third. He allowed one run and three hits while striking out four and walking one.

Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his third save.
