Chiefs Put RB Charles On IR, Promote WR Horne

Sports

September 21st, 2011 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Kansas City Chiefs have officially placed running back Jamaal Charles on season-ending injured reserve and promoted wide receiver Jeremy Horne from the practice squad. Charles tore the ACL in his left knee in the first quarter of Sunday’s 48-3 loss to the Detroit Lions. He is the third Chiefs player to sustain the injury in recent weeks. Tight end Tony Moeaki went down in their preseason finale and Eric Berry in a season-opening loss to Buffalo. Coach Todd Haley said Monday that he expected Charles to go on IR and the team made the move official Wednesday. The Chiefs also announced they signed offensive lineman Lucas Patterson to fill Horne’s place on the practice squad. Horne played in three games for Kansas City last season.

Iowa State Shatters Season Ticket Record

Sports

September 21st, 2011 by Jim Field

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State has sold more season football tickets this season than any other year in the history of the institution.

Through Wednesday, the school had sold 37,446 season tickets and orders continue to come in. The previous record was 36,610 in 2007.

“It has been non-stop in the athletics ticket office,” Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard said. “The team’s great start has also ignited single-game and mini-pack sales this past week.”

This fall’s season ticket number is nearly 6,000 more than last year, a remarkable 18.3 percent increase. The Cyclones’ opening two home games drew the second (56,085 vs. Iowa) and fourth-largest (55,481 vs. UNI) crowds in Jack Trice Stadium history.

“We have already sold more than 53,000 tickets for our game against Texas (Oct. 1),” said Pollard.  “Fans wanting tickets to the Texas game better act quickly because we expect to sell out in the next several days.”

Iowa State is on a pace to average more than 50,000 fans per home game this season. The Cyclones’ current home attendance average is ranked 35th nationally. That mark is higher than seven schools in the Big East, eight schools in the Pac-12, seven schools in the ACC and five schools in the Big Ten.

Comments from Coach Chris Janhke:    We struggled to find our rhythm from the start tonight. We came out flat and it was a struggle in each game. We had early deficits in each of the first 4 games that seemed to make us play cautious and tentative the entire match. I did not think that we served or hit as aggressive as we have up to this point. Shenandoah played a scrappy game and did well at converting the easy things we sent their way into points. We did not play to our potential tonight. We must find a way to be more mentally prepared for our opponents. We will be addressing these areas in practice the rest of this week. The team will be participating in the Nevada tournament this coming Saturday.

Team Efforts Results in Win for Lady Tiger Cross Country Team

Sports

September 20th, 2011 by Jim Field

The Griswold girls’ cross-country team claimed their first team title of the
year at Swan Lake in a meet hosted by Kuemper Catholic. It took outstanding
performances from all the runners to defeat the field of nine teams
including 4th ranked 2A North Polk.  Rebekah Topham and Jodan Sindt provided
a big one-two punch for the Lady Tigers as they captured first and second
place in the race.  It was Topham’s third individual win in three outings.
She took the lead almost immediately and left the chase pack within the
first 800 meters of the race. Topham crossed the finish line in 14:49. Her
time was the best among all classes on the day by over a minute.

Sindt had to work harder to seperate from the lead pack after getting behind
a pair of North Polk runners on the narrow course. She went around them
about a mile into the race and used her ability to run hills to distance
herself from the field. Sindt, an outstanding sprinter, used her speed to
finish in 16:57  and secure the second place spot.

All five of the scoring runners for the Lady Tigers placed in the top 15.
Alyx Flippin had a tremendous race. She picked up her pace in the last 1000
meters to pass the chase pack and crossed the finish line in 17:22 for 4th
place, her highest finish of the season. “Alyx is only a freshman and she is
still learning race strategy, but is easy to see has an incredible amount of
raw talent and huge potential for being at top finisher ” according to Coach
Jane Chaillie. “She is still pretty timid at the start line and is finding
herself blocked in at the beginning of the race. Today we saw what an
incredible job she could do once she got around the field and was able to
take advantage of her natural stride.”  All three of the top Griswold
runners finished in front of North Polk’s Sears who is ranked individually
in 2A.

Larissa Backhaus (12th ) and Allison Young (16th ) also had great runs for
Griswold. The pair of juniors both ran well on the rough terrain.  They did
an excellent job of positioning themselves and capitalized on the
long-downhill leading to the finish line to move up.
Although only the top 5 runners score, Bailey Powers (26) and Bridget Mauer
(29) had strong performances. “It takes all seven runners to make a strong
team. We have Rebekah and Jordan working to pull everyone up to the front of
the pack and today our freshman, Bridget Mauer to added to our effort with a
push from behind. She ran a 19:08. “Her goal is to be in the 18’s by mid
season and she is right on target.”*
*
Griswold had three runners in the junior varasity race that featured all
four classes: Melodee Anstey (37), Molly Sindt (39), and Kinzey Nicklaus
(50th).*
*
Xavier Olivio led the way for the boys’ squad. He finished in 10th place in
the team competition with a time of 18:51. Olivio has medaled at every
competition this year. Also helping the boys earn 6th place out of 10
complete teams were Jacob Maass (38th), Tyrel Peters (40th), Mason Anstey
(44) and Zak Doty (46th). Also running for the Tigers were Logan Potter
(61st) and Grant Haynes (63rd).*
*
“The boys did a great job. All the teams that placed ahead of us were 2A
schools. Xavier just keeps improving. I was especially pleased with Jacob
Maass’ performance. He is running with lots more confidence,” according to
Coach Chaillie.*
