AP Source: CSU, Eustachy Agree to Deal

Sports

April 12th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

A person familiar with the hiring says Larry Eustachy is set to become Colorado State’s basketball coach. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press because the deal is only agreed upon and not finalized.  The embattled coach takes over for Tim Miles, who left for Nebraska last month after leading the Rams to the NCAA tournament.

Eustachy is coming off a season in which he guided Southern Mississippi to its first NCAA tournament appearance since 1991.  It’s been a long road for Eustachy, who has rebuilt and restored his career in eight seasons at Southern Miss. Eustachy was a coach at Iowa State over a decade ago before his dramatic downfall. He resigned in 2003 shortly after photos of him partying with students surfaced.

Votto’s 4 Hits Help Reds Rally Past Cards 4-3

April 11th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CINCINNATI (AP) — Joey Votto tied a career best with four hits and scored the go-ahead run on pinch-hitter Chris Heisey’s ninth-inning single, capping a comeback from a three-run deficit and leading the Cincinnati Reds over the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 Wednesday. Down 3-0 in the third against Jaime Garcia, the Reds tied the score in the fifth. Votto doubled off Marc Rzepczynski (0-1) leading off the ninth for his fourth four-hit game. Ryan Ludwick was intentionally walked, Jay Bruce struck out, Fernando Salas relieved and Heisey lined a single to left. Aroldis Chapman (2-0) struck out five in two scoreless innings, helping the Reds avoid a three-game sweep.

Iowa’s Davis Leans on Senior QB Vandenberg

Sports

April 11th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Everything is new for Iowa offensive coordinator Greg Davis, from his players to his fellow coaches and even Iowa City. It’s a good thing Davis has a veteran quarterback to lean on. The arduous task of installing a new offense this spring has been eased considerably by the presence of senior quarterback James Vandenberg. The pair already has developed a strong working relationship according to Davis, who says he’s been impressed by how quickly Vandenberg has grasped his offense. Davis also says he has never seen a tight end with the combination of size and ability to stretch the field like junior C.J. Fiedorowicz. Davis says the Hawkeyes will look to use Fiedorowicz to create mismatches next season.

Sports

April 11th, 2012 by Jim Field

The Audubon boys golf team ran its dual meet record to 3-0 on Tuesday, April 10, at 4:00 p.m. at the Avoca Country Club.  Audubon’s team score was 174, led by runner-up medalist Michael Bylund with 41.  Nick Fett (42), Andrew Irlmeier (45), and Andy Hoffmann (46) also counted in the 4-man total.  AHST had three golfers compete and didn’t have a chance at the team “W”, but their Todd Schmidt won medalist honors by shooting a 40.

Audubon’s JV team shot 199.  Lucas Smith-Petersen was low with 48, followed by Chris LaFoy (49), Chase Petersen (51), and Jalen Nelson (51).

Audubon travels to Treynor Thursday, hosts Riverside on Friday, and competes at Anita’s invitational on Saturday (4-14).

On the girls side, Audubon beat A-H-S-T 204-231 at the Audubon Golf & Country Club.  The Wheelers were led by Medalist Susie Bylund who shot the low round of 45.  Faith Fliflet posted 49, Lexie Thygesen shot 50 and Teagan Albright shot 60.  For the Lady Vikes, Nicole Tiarks was runner-up medalist with a 49, Hana Jacobsen shot 59, CeCe Gray shot 61 and Mary Nagengast posted 62.

Atlantic Girls Win 4-Team Golf Meet

Sports

Girls Golf Played at Fox Run in Council Bluffs

  1. Atlantic 191
  2. Harlan 202
  3. Lewis Central 211
  4. Glenwood 252

Medalist:  Brooke Fletcher, Atlantic – 43
Runner-up:  Kaitlynn Walter, Atlantic – 44

Other Atlantic scores:  Bailey Walter, 51; Shelby Worth, 53; Malachi Wickman 65; Katie Blake, 68

leader from other schools:  Adria Skarnulis, Glenwood – 59; Kayla Redeker, Lewis Central – 46; Kate Schomers, Harlan – 46

Coach Kathy Hobson says:

This was suppose to be a dual against Glenwood as their course is closed.  It turned out to be a triangular +1 as we will play Harlan again later in the season for a regularly scheduled match.  Brooke Fletcher really drove the ball nice tonight getting good distance and keeping her ball in the fairway.  Kaitlynn Walter, minus a couple of misques, could have shot one of her best 9 hole scores.  191 is a great score but really thought we might come in with a season low on this course.

Boys at Glenwood — Glenwood 7, Atlantic 2

Singles:

#1 Mitch Leiferman 12 (A) over Grant Stivers 12 (G) 10-1
#2 Scott King 12 (G) over Tyler Fischer 12 (A) 10-5
#3 Garrett Hembry 12 (G) over Gunnar Blum 12 (A) 10-3

#5 Joe Gunkelman 12 (G) over Jake Arneson 10 (A) 10-2
#6 Max Chavez 10 (G) over Blake Meneely 11 (A) 10-6

Doubles:

#2 Fischer/Welter (A) over King/Rhoads (G) 11-10 (7-4 tiebreak)
#3 Gunkelman/Chavez (G) over Arneson/Rob Nichols 12 (A) 10-4

Coach Shawn Petersen Comments:

Overall, obviously not happy with the loss, but it was to a better team.  Mitch worked his way to a convincing win at #1, displaying outstanding court management and really getting after it defensively — he never let Stivers get any footing. Fischer and Blum both played commendable matches — they were just outplayed by their counterparts — good effort by both Tyler and Gunnar.  I thought we had a chance to get a couple of matches at 4-6, but got off to slow starts across the board in those matches.  In order to beat the better teams in our league, and Glenwood could be the best team in the league, we need to find a way to win a match or two we aren’t favored in — and to this point we haven’t been able to find a way to do that.  Give credit to Glenwood — they’ve got very good athletes up and down their lineup, and that advantage was very evident in the singles matches.

In doubles, at #1 we dug ourselves a 5-0 hole, playing not very aggressively and it cost us.  Once Mitch and Tyler started playing more offensively, it was an even match, but too much to overcome.  At #2, Tyler and Noah gutted one out for us — they trailed most of the match, but rallied to force a tiebreak; in the tiebreak, they were down 3-0 before putting together 5 straight points, ultimately finishing off their opponents 7-4 in the tiebreak — Tyler and Noah remain undefeated at #2 doubles.  At #3 Jake and Rob had a hard time getting anything going, but competed well to the end in the loss.

The boys are now 1-2 in conference and overall — they travel to Lewis Central on Thursday before hosting Denison and Clarinda next week.

JV winners were: Rob Nichols, Scott Caslow, Dalton Cook, Adam Wieser, Nick Podhajsky, Garrett McConnell, Reid Nichols, Ben Parker, Wyatt Saeugling, and Sam Bateman.

#2 Crow/Rodgers (G) over Allen/Johnson (A) 8-3
#3 Chavez/King (G) over Gearheart/Libby Gifford 11 (A) 8-4

Coach Shawn Petersen comments:

On the scoreboard, not a whole lot of positives for the girls — Glenwood is one of the top 3 or 4 teams in the league, and showed it.  They have a veteran group that has played a lot of tennis, and our girls are still learning how to compete and play against good competition.  Most of our girls are playing better, but don’t have the results to show for it — I feel for them, because it’s not a lack of effort in practice or in meets — they’re just playing better competition right now.  We need to keep chopping wood and working to improve every day, and the results will come for them.  Fortunately, I have a great group of girls to work with, and they are giving me everything they’ve got — as a coach that’s all I can ask of them.  Girls host Lewis Central on Tuesday before traveling to Denison and Clarinda next week.
