February 24th, 2024 by Seth Tiegs

JACKSONVILLE, Florida – The 18th ranked University of Iowa baseball team fell to Auburn, 7-5, on Saturday morning at 121 Financial Park.

The Hawkeyes got out to a 3-2 lead through four innings as Brody Brecht gave them a quality start on the bump.

Brecht threw six innings allowing two hits and two runs (one earned) while striking out 11 and walking four.

Jack Whitlock was tagged with the loss allowing three runs in 2/3 of an inning. Zach Voelker allowed two earned runs in 1/3 of an inning.

The Tigers singled in a run in the third after a pair of walks. Iowa responded with a double from Gable Mitchell and RBI single from Huckstorf.

Auburn cut the lead in half in the bottom of the sixth, and they took the lead with a pair of home runs in the seventh. A home run and a sacrifice fly extended the Tiger lead in the eighth.

Petersen homered with two outs in the ninth, but the Hawkeyes were unable to continue the rally.

Cyclones Split First Day of Rawlings Classic


February 23rd, 2024 by Seth Tiegs

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Iowa State (7-4) split its Friday games as part of day one of the Rawlings Classic, falling to Delaware (6-4) in a nearly five-hour game before topping Lehigh (2-6) in the afternoon by a run. The story of game number one was the two-plus hour weather delay. Pitching got sloppy in the fourth, leading to an influx of runs, but after the break, both teams were back to dealing.

Iowa State’s second game was won purely in the fifth inning, as a five-run frame was enough to outlast the Mountain Hawk’s four runs. 

Delaware 8, ISU 5
In a wet, muddy open to the Rawlings Classic, Iowa State fell to Delaware by a score of 8-5. The game started slow but picked up with the rain, as pitchers began to lose control over the ball, resulting in multiple wild pitches, passed balls and walks.

The game featured a two-hour, 20-minute delay in the fourth, which came right in the middle of a Cyclone rally. Once play resumed, neither team was able to get anything going at the plate, resulting in a scoreless fifth, sixth and seventh.

Seven Cyclones had a hit on the afternoon, while Angelina Allen led the team with three RBI. Both Milaysia Ochoa and Alesia Ranches also had RBI on the day.

 How it Happened
The game started with an empty first inning, as neither side was able to do much. Iowa State snuffed out a Delaware runner at third who attempted to tag up on a flyout to earn an inning-ending double play.

ISU again held Delaware scoreless in the top of the second inning as rain started to fall in Charlottesville. In the bottom of the frame, Alesia Ranches uncorked her third homer of the season, a solo shot, to center, putting the Cyclones up 1-0.

The Blue Hens got on the board in the top of the fourth, stringing together a pair of singles and a fielder’s choice to load the bases with two outs. A single back to the pitcher brought one in and kept the bases juiced for Morgan Hess. Hess sent a well-struck ball to the left-center gap, clearing the bases and putting Delaware up 4-1.

Milaysia Ochoa was hit by a pitch in the top bottom of the frame, putting a runner on for the Cyclones. Angelina Allen then smacked her fourth homer of the season over the center field fence to make it 4-3 in favor of the Blue Hens. Ochoa’s HBP was the 28th of her career – tying an ISU career record.

The field conditions worsened in the fourth, as ISU pitchers struggled to control the ball. A leadoff walk and two straight advancements on wild pitches put a runner on third. Delaware tried to score on another Wry pitch, but a perfect bounce back off the backstop allowed for an out. Delaware drew three more walks in the inning and used a two-run homer to score four runs for the second-straight inning as it went up 8-3.

In the bottom of the fourth, Iowa State started the inning off with a double and a single to get two runners on. An Olivia Wardlow single would load the bases with one out, bringing Ochoa up to bat. She would draw a walk to bring one with Allen following her. Allen was three pitches into her at-bat when the umpires called for a delay in action (at 11:40 EST).

Two hours and twenty minutes later (2 p.m. EST), the game resumed where it left off, with the basses loaded and Allen at the plate. She would send a screeching grounder to the first baseman, who was only able to get Allen out at first. The inning ended with a Cyclone strikeout, concluding a two-and-a-half-hour bottom of the fourth. ISU trailed 5-8.

After everyone came back from the break, pitchers started to gain more control over the ball and both offenses struggled to get hits. Neither team scored in the final three innings as the game ended with a three-run win for Delaware. Iowa State was able to bring the tying run to the plate in the bottom of the seventh with two on, but a groundout ended the potential comeback.

 Friday Notes
Home Runs
Iowa State: Alesia Ranches (3), Angelina Allen (4)
Delaware: Gianna Costaro (4)

 ISU 5, Lehigh 4
A five-run fifth inning was the difference in the second game of the first day of the Rawlings Classic for the Cyclones. Five different “Clones had a hit on the afternoon, with four earning RBI. It was just the second game of the season that Iowa State did not register a homer. Aziza Rodriguez picked up her second win on the afternoon, going a career-high five innings on the day.

 How it Happened
Both teams were scoreless in the opening frame, with each team registering just one hit. The Mountain Hawks were the first team on the scoreboard, tacking on one run in the top of the second thanks to a Julia Mrochko sacrifice fly. Like the first, both the third and fourth were scoreless on both sides. A leaping grab from McKenna Andrews and subsequent toss to second doubled up Lehigh to end the fourth frame.

The Mountain Hawks had two hits in the top of the fifth but were unable to convert, maintaining their 1-0 lead. The Cyclones exploded in the bottom of the fifth, piling on five runs to take a four-run lead. An RBI double from Tiana Poole and a pair of RBI singles made it 3-1 in favor of the Cyclones, as they had bases loaded with one out. Ranches drew a bases-loaded walk to score Wardlow from third. Moving from second to third was Ochoa, who, smartly, rounded the base and sprinted in to score – catching Lehigh off guard as ISU scored two on the walk.

LU fought back in the top of the sixth, plating three, but was unable to get over the final hump and tie/take the lead as it went on to fall by one run.

Hawkeyes Set 3 Program Bests at B1G Indoors


February 23rd, 2024 by Seth Tiegs

GENEVA, Ohio – University of Iowa Track and Field set several new high marks during the first day of competition at the Big Ten Indoor Championships on Friday at Spire Academy.

The Hawkeyes posted three school records, improved on eight program top-10 marks and combined for 21 personal bests.

10 men’s team and nine women’s team members qualified for finals on Saturday.

Seniors Paige Magee and Kalen Walker each recorded Iowa program bests for the women’s and men’s squads, respectively. Both Hawkeyes take the fastest prelim times for their events into tomorrow’s finals.  

In the women’s 60-meter hurdles, Magee shaved one-hundredth of a second off her program-record time to become the first Hawkeye to run sub-8.00. At 7.99, Magee’s race ranks fifth in the country this season.

Walker matched a program-best 6.51 in the 60 meters that he set at the Jarvis Scott Open on Feb. 10. Walker’s time ranks second nationally.

Saturday closed out with fireworks. Sophomore Sean Smith heaved a 22.28-meter (73’ 1.25”) weight throw for second place and a new school record. It was Smith’s final toss of the night and the final event for day one.

Smith’s throw ranks 13th in the nation.

Moments before, the women’s distance medley team raced to a fourth-place finish in 11:17.78, good for second in program history. The team was comprised of seniors Alli Bookin-NosbischAli DornGrace Bookin-Nosbisch and Amber Aesoph.

In the women’s 800 meters, Iowa record-holder Alli Bookin-Nosbisch qualified with a 2:05.07 time that ranked fourth in the prelims. Bookin-Nosbisch will chase her first conference title on Saturday.

In the men’s 60-meter hurdles, senior Grant Conway posted a personal-best 7.66, improving his fourth all-time standing at Iowa. Conway will be joined by senior Gratt Reed (7.82) and junior Kalil Johnson (7.94) in tomorrow’s final.

Three Hawkeyes also qualified in the women’s 600 meters, including redshirt sophomore Chloe Larsen (1:28.88), sophomore Gabby Cortez (1:29.89) and junior Jaiden Itson (1:30.76).

Senior Austin West will chase his second Big Ten gold tomorrow. The Iowa City, Iowa, native is second in the men’s heptathlon after four events, currently 63 points back from the lead with 3,340 points. He was an outdoor conference champion in the 400-meter hurdles last season.

West finished second in the heptathlon 60 meters, long jump and high jump. He was fourth in the pentathlon shot put. West’s 1.99 meter (6’ 6.25”) high jump is a personal best.

Sophomore Sal Capaldo is also competing in the heptathlon, where he currently stands in sixth place (3,340 points).

In the women’s pentathlon, freshman Annie Wirth led Iowa with a personal-best 3,870 points, placing fifth.


“I always say to the athletes, championship meets have lots of ups and downs. You can’t expect everything to always come out perfectly like you have on paper. I thought that the athletes competed well and kept their nose in there. We had a lot of near-miss finals, the first or second one out. That is how championship meets are. It’s going to come down to a hundredth of a second or quarter of an inch.

We are on the verge of some big things, just missing a couple of events. We finished the day extremely well. I’m proud of the women’s DMR. Obviously, exciting for Sean to come out and get a big medal. He is probably going to punch his ticket to the national meet with that throw.

We have a lot of momentum coming into tomorrow. We have a lot of finalists. We just need to go out and focus on competing. We have a lot of big field events and finish the day with the 4×4, as well. We have great opportunities tomorrow. We have a chance to compete for championships. We just need to come out on fire in the morning.”

The Big Ten Indoor Championships conclude on Saturday at Spire Academy in Geneva, Ohio.

Atlantic Boys basketball season in review


February 23rd, 2024 by Seth Tiegs

The Atlantic Trojans basketball team ended their season last Monday night in a 70-49 loss in the first round of the Class 3A-Substate 8. The Trojans did finish the season with a 7-16 overall record and went 4-6 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference.

The Trojans will be losing six seniors to graduation this year: Tyrell Williams, Colton Rassmussen, Thomas Leonard, Gavin McLaren, Nolan Waters and Brock Henderson. The Trojans sure have a good group of freshman and sophomores and juniors that are eager to get varsity minutes next season.

Senior Colton Rasmussen is in third place in Class 3A with 615 points on the season and averaged 27 points per game. Senior Gavin McLAren scored 214 points and averages 12 points per game this season.

Trojan coach Dalton Franken wanted to wish his seniors the best of the right after the season ended.

Coach Franken gave some advice to all of the underclassman for what they can do over the summer.

Coach appreciates all the community of Atlantic and the Trojan fan base for coming out to watch the team play this season.

Coach Franken also said they will be putting basketball camps coming up this summer with dates not yet to be determined.
