Atlantic softball advances with 6-4 win over Shenandoah

Sports

July 6th, 2022 by Chris Parks

The Atlantic softball team will get to play another home game after defeating Shenandoah 6-4 on Wednesday night in a Class 3A Region 4 Quarterfinal contest. The Trojans shook off a slow start when a couple of early walks and two RBI singles gave the Fillies a 2-0 lead in the first. Atlantic got a run in the bottom of the first and then took control of the lead in the second with a 3-run effort to go up 4-2. The Fillies climbed back within 1 with a run in the 3rd but the Trojans added a run in each of the 5th and 6th to build a nice cushion. Shenandoah did grab a run on an error in the 7th but that’s all they could muster.

Zoey Kirchoff was pretty solid in the circle for Atlantic with 9 strikeouts but she did give up 6 walks. Atlantic Head Coach Terry Hinzmann was pleased with her overall effort.

The Trojans did a great job with some small ball at the plate. The Trojans executed a number of great bunts that turned into base runners. Kirchoff laid down a bunt in the third that was picked up and errantly thrown over the head of the first baseman. That costly error gave Atlantic two runs that inning. Coach Hinzmann was proud of that part of their game.

Ava Rush used that small ball route to get on base a couple of times early and she said that is part of what she does well.

Atlantic improved to 22-14 on the season and will now play Clarinda in a Class 3A Region 4 Semifinal on Saturday. The Cardinals advanced with an 8-2 Quarterfinal win over Red Oak. Shenandoah ends their season with a record of 13-18. We’ll have coverage of Atlantic and Clarinda on Saturday on KJAN with pregame at 6:50 p.m.

Motivated Holmes looks for big season at Iowa State

Sports

July 6th, 2022 by Chris Parks

Iowa State senior guard Jaren Holmes still feels like he has something to prove. Holmes transferred to ISU after averaging 13 and-a-half points and five rebounds at St. Bonaventure last season. He started all 33 games.

Holmes says that is the attitude he has played with his entire career.

As a fifth year senior Holmes is trying to provide leadership for a team that lost Izaiah Brockington and Tyrese Hunter off a team that played in the Sweet-16.

Holmes says he is leading in a positive way.

Iowa’s Tory Taylor on improvement

Sports

July 6th, 2022 by Chris Parks

Iowa punter Tory Taylor says he is always seeking ways to improve. Taylor average just over 46 yards per punt for the Hawkeyes last season after using primarily a rugby style of punting as a freshman.

Taylor says he worked on more spiral punting last season.

Taylor says he wants to drop more punts inside the ten next season and says working with the gunners on the punt team is key.
