Treynor scorches the nets in District Final win over AHSTW


February 23rd, 2021 by Chris Parks

The Treynor Cardinals poured in a school record 15 three pointers on their way to an 84-53 victory over the AHSTW Vikings on Tuesday night in the boys Class 2A District 16 Final. Sid Schaaf and Tim Zimmerman combined for 14 of those 15 threes and combined for 62 points to lead the Cardinals to a Substate 8 Final against Van Meter on Saturday night in Atlantic.

Treynor started the game with a fast paced attack and quick transition passing to start with a 7-0 run. They led 21-17 at the end of the first. The Vikings got within 4 late in the second quarter but the Cardinals dropped in a couple of threes late to lead 33-24 at half. Then the Cardinals erupted in the third quarter, outscoring the Vikings 30-12 in the quarter and blew the game open. Sid Schaaf connected on 4 three pointers in that quarter and scored 16 of his game leading 34 points in the period. Tim Zimmerman was red hot from outside and hit 8 threes in the game, two in each quarter of action. Thomas Schwartz added a fourth quarter trey to push the Cardinals to their record mark from downtown; he finished with 11 points.

AHSTW was led by 18 from Raydden Grobe, 13 from Brayden Lund, and 10 from Kyle Sternberg. The Vikings just couldn’t keep pace with the quick passing of the Cardinals and were late on a lot of shot closeouts. The Cardinals also did a good job of preventing Lund from getting many touches until late in the game. He scored 11 of his 13 points in the fourth quarter. AHSTW ends the season with a terrific record of 20-3. It’s a talented young group for the Vikings that returns all of their starters from Tuesday next season.

Treynor improved to 19-4 on the season and claimed the rubber match with the Vikings. The Cardinals will now play for a trip to State on Saturday in Atlantic against a Van Meter team that had to rally late to beat Panorama. That game will be a 7:00 p.m. tipoff Saturday night.

IOWA CITY, Iowa — The Big Ten Conference announced Tuesday that Iowa and Penn State are co-champions of the 2021 conference regular season.

The top-ranked Hawkeyes finished the dual season 5-0. Penn State finished with a 6-0 record. Iowa has won or shared the Big Ten regular season title 11 times in the last 14 years, and 13 times since the conference starting recognizing a dual meet champion in 1999.

In five conference duals, the Hawkeyes’ postseason roster posted a 38-5 record in individual matches, scoring bonus points in 25 bouts. The Hawkeyes have four wrestlers ranked at the top of their respective weight classes, and nine wrestlers ranked fifth or better.

The Hawkeyes return to the mat March 6-7 at the 2021 Big Ten Championships in University Park, Pennsylvania. The two-day tournament is televised live on BTN and streamed at the FOX Sports App. Iowa won the 2020 Big Ten Championships and has won a league-high 36 team titles. Spencer Lee (125) and Alex Marinelli (165) are both defending conference champions. Marinelli also won the conference tournament in 2019.
