Kuemper Catholic 177, Atlantic 188

Medalist:  Morgan Naberhaus (K) 42
Runner up:  Mara Mashing (K) 42

Atlantic Scores:

  • Kaitlynn Walter 44
  • Bailey Walter 46
  • Brooke Fletcher 48
  • Shelby Worth 50
  • Malachi Wickman 69
  • Katie Blake 72

Coach Kathy Hobson says: Kuemper has a very good group of golfers but I’m very pleased with posting a team score of 188 for our first meet of the season. If we can build on that we’ll have a great year.  We definitely had some course management issues we need to get corrected.  Brooke Fletcher got off to slow start but to her credit came right back with a par.  Was nice to see Bailey come in with a 46 and Kaitlynn Walter played very consistent.  That is something we have to have from our senior.  Shelby Worth proved to be a great addition to our team in her first varsity outing.  And, Malachi Wickman and Katie Blake, for being new golfers, played very admirably for their first competition.

Matheny Raring for Cardinals Opener

Sports

April 4th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

MIAMI (AP) — Mike Matheny held a team meeting with the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday afternoon, then emerged to take his first look around Marlins Park and announced he would be throwing batting practice. He’s trying to keep everything as simple as possible. Maybe that’s the right move for the rookie manager of the reigning World Series champions, who begin their defense of the crown today (Wednesday) against the newly renamed Miami Marlins. Matheny says he tried to learn something new every day during spring training, and that he has spoken to several people with managerial experience to pick their brains. And of course, he’s been in contact with Tony La Russa, who retired after last season — but is still a mentor of sorts for Matheny. You can hear the game this evening on KJAN, beginning at 5:10.

Miles Adds UNI Assistant Johnson to Nebraska Staff

Sports

April 3rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Northern Iowa assistant Ben Johnson is leaving the Panthers to join the staff of new Nebraska coach Tim Miles. Miles, who announced Johnson’s hiring Tuesday, already has said he would bring recruiting coordinator Ron Coleman and operations director Jayden Olson with him from Colorado State. Miles still has an opening for one full-time assistant. The 31-year-old Johnson was an assistant under Ben Jacobson at UNI for four years, serving as the Panthers’ recruiting coordinator this past season. Johnson previously spent two years as an assistant at Texas-Pan American and was a graduate assistant at Dayton. Johnson was a starting guard for four years at two Big Ten schools. He spent his first two seasons at Northwestern and finished at Minnesota.

Simpson, Spearmon to Run at Drake Relays

Sports

April 3rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — U.S. distance running star Jenny Simpson, the 2011 world champion at 1,500 meters, says she’ll open her outdoor season at the Drake Relays. Drake organizers announced Tuesday that Simpson and two-time U.S. outdoor 200-meter champion Wallace Spearmon, Jr., will compete in the meet, which is set for April 26-28. Simpson grew up in Webster City and later had a record-breaking career at the University of Colorado. She won the 1,500 at Drake last year in 4:09.56, then captured the world title four months later in Daegu, South Korea. Spearmon won the men’s 200 at Drake in 2010, the last time the event was held.

Marlins Open New Ballpark Against Champion Cards

Sports

April 3rd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

MIAMI (AP) – Perched atop the Miami Marlins’ colorful, provocative home-run sculpture is a blue marlin, poised for splashdown whenever the home team hits one out. Call the artwork what you will – gaudy, goofy, grotesque, great – but there’s no denying it’s new. For the Marlins, that’s what this season is all about. They’ve become a big-spending, attention-grabbing team as they open the season at home Wednesday night against the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals. The Marlins predict they’ll contend for the NL East title – and more. When ace Josh Johnson throws the first pitch in the new ballpark, the Marlins will begin trying to supplant the Cardinals, who mounted an improbable late-season charge to the World Series title.
