Paddlers encouraged to brush up on safety before hitting the water

(Iowa DNR News) – Iowa lakes and streams will soon be busy with paddlers eager to get on the water as summer is finally here. For many, it will be their first time out for the year, and experts advise they go through their equipment and review safety tips before heading to the water. “The number one hazard on the river is strainers,” said Todd Robertson, river programs outreach coordinator with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Strainers are piles of wood or trees that can appear anywhere on a river, especially after it rains. “These wood piles can trap a boat and paddler with little chance of escape if sucked under,” Robertson said. “The best way to avoid these strainers is to know how to properly navigate your boat or by portaging around them.”

The DNR has a paddler interactive map online where paddlers can report large strainers or new logjams at https://www.iowadnr.gov/Things-to-Do/Canoeing-Kayaking/Where-to-Paddle. Paddlers are encouraged to check the map before heading to the water. They should also check the condition of their lifejackets and replace any that are worn out or damaged. “If you’re using your lifejacket as a seat cushion or have it stored under the deck rigging, it’s not going to be there for you when you need it,” Robertson said. “Plan to wear it.”

On the rivers, watch for low-head dam warning signs that will direct paddlers how to get around these dangerous dams. Never go over a low-head dam, Robertson said. “The hydraulics and boil will keep you with little chance of escape.” Paddlers are in-between swims, he said, and in addition to wearing the lifejacket, paddlers should dress for the water temperature and not the air. There can be cool conditions even on summer days. During the heat of the summer, dehydration can take place while getting that workout so stay properly hydrated.

Atlantic softball grabs 2 from Creston

Sports

June 7th, 2021 by Chris Parks

The Atlantic softball team grabbed two wins over the Creston Panthers on Monday night at the Atlantic Little League Complex.

The Trojans had to edge out the win in game one with a seventh inning run to win 3-2. Maleana Woodward put one in play with the bases loaded and the Panthers threw home for the force out on Ava Rush. Peyton Rice then tried to throw to first to snag Woodward but the throw was a bit off and the catch misplayed by Halle Evans at first and the ball got through. Madison Botos had advanced to third with the contact and was then sent home on the errant throw and slid in safe to secure the Trojan victory. Both teams finished with 7 hits in the contest but 3 errors by the Panthers in that final frame proved to be the difference. Lauren Nicholas reached all three times at the plate and had two hits, including and RBI single in the fourth that tied the game up at 2. Neveah Randall went 2-3 for Creston with a first inning home run to right-center. Olivia Engler had 8 strikeouts in the victory for the Trojans.

The second game went back and forth with some chunk scoring in contrast to the single run trading in the first. Atlantic scored 2 in each the first and second to go up 4-0. Creston answered with 4 in the third to tie the game before Atlantic answered back with 3 in the bottom half of the frame. Creston would tie the game again with three runs in the 4th but that would end their scoring for the night. Atlantic grabbed the lead back with a run scored in the bottom of the 4th. Then added 3 in the fifth and 2 more in the sixth. Kennedy Goergen pitched the first three innings and Engler came on to finish the rest of the way. The Trojans racked up 12 hits with Alyssa Derby leading the way with 2 doubles, 1 RBI, and 2 runs scored. Goergen also had a big RBI double and two runs scored.

Atlantic Head Coach Terry Hinzmann thought their pitchers did a good job of fighting against a dangerous Creston lineup.

Coach Hinzmann also though just giving at-bats a chance was a huge part of both games.

The Trojans improved to 10-1 on the season. They will prepare for a road trip to Harlan on Tuesday, followed by a visit to Lewis Central on Thursday.

Creston falls to 4-7 on the season. They host Clarinda Tuesday before traveling to Shenandoah on Thursday.
