I-Cubs announced new protocols on masks and vaccinations


May 15th, 2021 by Ric Hanson

The Iowa Cubs announced updated COVID-19 protocols Friday in response to new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Major League Baseball. The CDC announced eased mask restrictions Thursday for individuals who are fully vaccinated. According to an update on the Iowa Cubs’ website, a memo from Major League Baseball in response to the CDC guidance removes designated buffer zones around dugouts and bullpens and drops mask requirements made by the MLB.

The Iowa Cubs “highly encourage” continued mask use for non-vaccinated fans, but masks will not be required at Principal Park. Fans participating in on-field promotions will be required to wear a mask. Seating previously closed off in the park will be reopened and tickets will be sold as reserves seats on a first-come first-served basis. Season ticket holders will be allowed to return to their regularly assigned seating on June 8.

The ballpark is expanding tickets in skybox seats to 20 tickets. The Iowa Cubs and Hy-Vee are continuing to provide vaccines for tans who are eligible on game days. As an incentive to get vaccinated, the fans will receive a free general admission ticket to a future game, a hot dog, and drink when they are vaccinated.

May 14th, 2021 by Chris Parks

Longtime Atlantic Assistant Basketball Coach Jeremy Blake will now get the chance to lead his own squad. Blake has been hired as the new Head Boys Basketball Coach at Nodaway Valley. Blake will take over for legendary coach Darrell Burmeister who is stepping down from his teaching duties at Nodaway Valley this Spring.

Burmeister has over 600 career wins to his name, and is the only coach the combined Nodaway Valley district has ever had. Blake said he is excited for the opportunity and knows that he has some really big shoes to fill.

Blake said it was a really difficult decision to leave Atlantic where he has been for the last ten years. He will assume teaching duties with the Nodaway Valley district as well and said he is also excited for the new challenges that brings. Blake said his wife Michelle will stay teaching in the Atlantic district and still be the Head Volleyball Coach for the Trojans.

Listen to a full interview with Coach Blake below.

Braden Smith  80  Individual Qualifier
Drey Newell   80   Individual Qualifier
Garrett McLaren  80   Individual Qualifier
Lane Nelson  85
Cruz Weaver 103
Roth Den Beste  88
Atlantic Head Coach Ed Den Beste: “We knew going into this meet that it was going to be tough.  We figured that we needed to shoot in the 310s to win and probably needed to be in the low 320s to get second and move on.  We were close. 325 is a good score but not to move on today. Pretty amazing that we sent three individuals onto to Districts but didn’t move on as a team. We needed a couple of guys in the mid to high 70s to move on as a team.  Drey had a great front. One over but then struggled to get pars on the back. Braden was 8 over after 6 holes but strung 6 pars in a row and finished 3 over on the back. Garrett had a better front and Lane was the same on both sides. Cruz had a bad hole 18 that hurt.  Otherwise would have been mid 90s. Roth continued to improve. Best front he has shot. Now Braden, Drey and Garrett move onto Districts in Orange City.  Hopefully they play well and make it to state.”
District play will be next Friday in Orange City.

ISU women’s hoops adds Beatriz Jordao


May 14th, 2021 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State women’s basketball and Head Coach Bill Fennelly announced the addition of Beatriz Jordao, a 6-3 junior center transfer from South Florida.

“We are excited to add Beatriz to our Iowa State family,” Fennelly said. “She will add needed post depth and experience and maturity to our young roster. Beatriz is an outstanding person and I know she will add a great deal on and off the court.”

Jordao, who hails from Pombal, Portugal, competed for three seasons with South Florida. Jordao has appeared in 63 games with the Bulls, averaging 4.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, while shooting 49.6 percent from the field. Jordao had a strong start to her freshman campaign with the Bulls averaging 11.3 points, 5.6 rebounds and shooting 64.8 percent from the field before suffering a season-ending injury 12 games into the season.

She has also competed in numerous FIBA events for her home country of Portugal, averaging 7.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 0.6 assists in FIBA events. Jordao most recently competed in the 2019 FIBA U20 Women’s European Championship where she averaged 6.1 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.0 assists.

Jordao will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.
