Chiefs fans aim to break Seahawks’ noise record


October 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Even the most muffled clap seemed to echo throughout Arrowhead Stadium last season as the Kansas City Chiefs plodded their way toward one of the worst seasons in franchise history. A group of fans is trying to restore the roar.

When the Chiefs host the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, they will be trying to break a Guinness world record for loudest sports crowd roar in an outdoor sports stadium that was set earlier this year by Seahawks fans during a game against the 49ers.

The record is 136.6 decibels, or just below what a jet engine sounds like 100 feet away. The fans even have the support of the Chiefs, who paid for a Guinness adjudicator to fly to Kansas City for the record attempt.

Big Mac is back: McGwire holds court in St. Louis


October 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Mark McGwire was back in his element, holding court in St. Louis. Most major league coaches do their jobs in virtual anonymity behind the scenes. McGwire, however, is no ordinary hitting instructor and his homecoming is a juicy, natural subplot in this NL championship series. Once a star slugger for the Cardinals and later their batting coach, McGwire now serves in that role with the Los Angeles Dodgers on manager Don Mattingly’s staff. So on Thursday evening, none of the players on either team received nearly as much attention at Busch Stadium.

A swarm of reporters surrounded Big Mac near the batting cage before the Dodgers’ workout. He noticed the boom mike that hovered over the crowd and repeated answers to the second and third waves.

Kelly, Greinke set for Game 1 of NLCS


October 11th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Carpets were still drying out from a champagne bath and a few players looked bleary eyed after a workout at Busch Stadium. A day after advancing, there wasn’t much time to rest for the St. Louis Cardinals. The Los Angeles Dodgers don’t have home-field advantage in the NL championship series, but they got a few extra days to savor early postseason success.

No telling which side will benefit, the team on a roll or the team coming off a break, entering Game 1 Friday night. Joe Kelly, who flourished as a replacement starter with St. Louis, opposes Zack Greinke in the opener. The staff aces won’t go until later in the best-of-seven series, with the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw set for Game 2 and the Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright ready for Game 3.

The Cardinals will again be without cleanup man Allen Craig, who was out of town Thursday seeing a specialist for his foot injury.

Iowa State expecting big things from Kane


October 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Few coaches have embraced senior transfers like Iowa State’s Fred Hoiberg. He might have one of his best ones yet in former Marshall point guard DeAndre Kane. The Cyclones will fill one of their guard positions with yet another “one-and-done” player in Kane. He averaged 15.1 points and seven assists for Marshall last season and earned second-team All-Conference USA honors.

Iowa State’s hopes for a third straight NCAA tournament bid rest in part on Kane’s ability to lead a revamped roster. Hoiberg says Kane is a versatile player who will see time at point and shooting guard. Iowa State, picked fourth in the Big 12 preseason poll, opens on Nov. 10 against UNC-Wilmington.

Atlantic XC Invitational is at Country Club Today


October 10th, 2013 by Jim Field

Atlantic will host its own cross country invitational today at a new site. The meet will be held at the Atlantic Golf and Country Club. Atlantic coach Paul Iekel says they believe the course will set up well for the runners and the spectators. The start/finish area is east of Palm Street on the number 16 fairway and that should give some good views to spectators.

24 teams, both boys and girls are expected for today’s meet. On the boys side, Harlan, St. Albert, Riverside and Tri-Center are among the ranked teams entered. The girls race features ranked teams like Griswold, Harlan and Dallas Center-Grimes.

The school is asking spectators to park on the south side of 22nd Street, the north side of 29th Street and on the east side of Chestnut Street, not in the Country Club parking lot.

The meet begins with the middle school at 4:00 pm. The high school races begin with the JV boys at 4:30pm, followed by the varsity girls, varsity boys and JV girls. Awards should be presented at about 6:30 pm.

Cardinals beat Pirates 6-1 in Game 5 to win NLDS


October 10th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adam Wainwright pitched a complete game and the St. Louis Cardinals got two-run homers from David Freese and Matt Adams to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-1 on Wednesday night and advance to the NL championship series. Wainwright scattered eight hits in his second dominant win of the division series, coming through for the Cardinals in a winner-take-all Game 5.

St. Louis gets to stay at home to open the NLCS against the well-rested Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night. The last three seasons, the Cardinals are 8-1 when facing elimination. They also won Game 5 of the NL division series at Washington last year and at Philadelphia in 2011.
