Precinct Map Feature For Iowans
Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz announced today that for the first time, Iowans in all 99 counties can view their county and city precinct maps online at http:// www.sos.iowa.gov/precinctmaps. The precinct map feature is a comprehensive compilation of both existing precinct maps that were created by counties and cities as well as precinct maps created by the Iowa Secretary of State’s office for counties and cities that were not already available online. “This is the first time all of the precinct maps are available to Iowans in one place,” Schultz said. “The new precinct map feature is another effective tool we are offering to Iowa voters to make sure they have useful election information at their fingertips.” The precinct maps on the Secretary of State website are based on the 2010 decennial Census Bureau boundary information and the city and county reprecincting plans approved by the Secretary of State’s office. The precinct maps are simply another way the Iowa Secretary of State’s office works to improve the voting experience for all eligible Iowans. Schultz also worked diligently to remove obstacles for military voters and facilitate the potentially complicated process of casting a ballot from outside the country. Under Schultz’s leadership, all active duty military personnel serving outside the boundaries of the United States can now cast a ballot via fax or email, a method that previously had only been available to a restricted number of soldiers serving in specifically classified areas. The Iowa Secretary of State’s office also designed the Iowa ExpressVoter electronic pollbook software and is providing it to Iowa counties free of charge. The Iowa ExpressVoter electronic pollbook simplifies the check-in process for voters at the polling place. Voters have the option of scanning a state of Iowa-issued ID card or voter registration card which helps speed voters through the line. Any needed paperwork is printed right at the polling place, eliminating the hassle of completing forms by hand.

By Adam Meier, Regional Sports Editor
ast Tuesday Davis Eidahl’s Pekin girls’ squad let one slip away at 11th-ranked (Class 1A) Winfield-Mt. Union, but bounced back to win its final two games of the week. The Panthers led by nine points at halftime last Tuesday against Winfield-Mt. Union but struggled to maintain composure in the second half, ultimately falling by a count of 47-46. With the win, the Wolves improved to 8-1 in SEISC play. Pekin got big games out of Sam Wright and Beth Atwood. Wright was hot from the outside, hitting three of her five 3-pointers and finishing with 12 points. Meanwhile, Atwood led the team with 19 points and added eight rebounds, three steals and two assists. Gwynne Wright added nine points to the effort. Pekin put the one-point loss behind them and focused all of its attention on getting back into the win column on Friday against WACO. The Panthers looked great early on, outscoring the Warriors by a count of 15-4 in the first quarter and taking a 32-16 lead into the locker room at the half. Eidahl’s squad stayed on the gas in the second half and extended its lead to 50-26 after three, before putting it away in the fourth for the 64-39 win.

EV Wrestlers Excel at Coon Rapids 1-11-2013 Coon Rapids-Bayard Invitational By Adam Meier, Regional Sports Editor
stacked field at Saturday’s Coon R a p i d s - B a y a r d Invitational in Coon Rapids got a taste of the caliber of wrestlers possessed by the English Valleys’ wrestling squad. Two champions, one second-place finish and two third-place finishes are what the Bears brought back to North English on Saturday. 113-pounder Blake Ealy clinched the first individual title for EV with a secondperiod pin of Audubon’s Kyle Juelsgaard. Ealy also pinned Coon-Rapids-Bayard’s Micah Hoffman earlier in the day and finished 2-0 on the afternoon. EV’s other champion came in the form of 145-pound freshman Zach Axmear. Axmear pinned Exira-EHK’s Bill Wang in just ten seconds to begin his day. Axmear then won a 12-7 decision over WoodwardGranger’s Race Brant and pinned Audubon’s Trevor Smith in the title bout. Sheldon Ealy finished his day at 1-1 and finished second in the 120-pound weight class. Ealy pinned Exira-EHK’s Austin Malloy to get into the title bout, where he lost a 17-15 decision to WoodwardGranger’s Colton Milosevich. Milosevich improved to 25-1 with the win. Cody Seaton (138) won his final two matches of the day to earn third place in his weight class, including a pin of Panorama’s Tyler VanHouten that got him third place. Junior Brennen Grimm faced a loaded 182-pound weight class and proved his ability with a third-place finish. After falling to Guthrie Center’s Austin Laabs, Grimm defeated Audubon’s Jordan Hansen and South Central Calhoun’s Zayne Barrett in consecutive matches to earn third place. 106-pounder Wyatt Olson placed fourth at 106 pounds and Andrew Fisher finished six at 126. Meanwhile, Luke Jackson went 0-2 on Saturday and did not place at 195 pounds. The Bears hosted Tipton, Washington and Lone Tree on Tuesday, Jan. 14, before wrestling in Saturday’s tournament at WACO.

Eagles Remain Unbeaten 1-9-2014 Keota 86, Iowa Valley 71 1-10-2014 Keota 55, North Mahaska 37
By Adam Meier, Regional Sports Editor
Two roads contests on consecutive nights resulted in two vastly different style of games and two Keota wins last week. The Eagles relied on their offense on Thursday at Iowa Valley and pulled away in the second half for the 86-71, while Keota’s defense won the game the following night for the Eagles at North Mahaska in the 55-37 victory. Things were shaky early on for the Eagles on Thursday in Marengo. Iowa Valley led by as much as eight in the second quarter and drew foul after foul on Keota defenders. Both Kolton Greiner and Derek Berg were sidelined with three fouls in the second quarter, but Luke Lyle and Zach Mousel stepped up late in the first half to bring the Eagles back. A 3-pointer by Mousel and a driving layup by Lyle late in the second quarter tied the game at 37 at halftime. That wouldn’t be the last time Mousel impacted the game. With Greiner and Berg on the bench with three fouls for the entire third quarter, Lyle and sophomore Isaiah Hahn helped the Eagles gain a threepoint lead heading into the fourth. Lyle did most of his work in the paint against the Tigers but also hit two ‘3s’ to finish with 27 points. Lyle also pulled down 14 rebounds and dished out six assists. Hahn did exactly what he was asked of and ended the game with seven points and six rebounds. Greiner and Berg were both inserted back into the lineup in the fourth and helped the Eagles extend their lead to eight points midway through the quarter. Although Greiner went just oneof-five from 3-point range, the explosive point guard worked hard to get into the paint and draw fouls. Greiner went eightof-nine from the free throw line and went 10-of-22 from the field for 29 points. Greiner also
dished out five assists. With the game still in the balance in the fourth, sophomore guard Zach Mousel came up clutch to keep the Tigers in the rear view mirror. Mousel nailed back-to-back ‘3s’ from the corner and added a driving layup later to keep the Eagles in control. For the game, Mousel finished with 17 points on fiveof-eight shooting. Senior Justin Hultman added four points, including two on a late offensive rebound and put back to seal the win. Hultman had four points and six rebounds. The Eagles shot 33-of-70 (47 percent) from the field and outscored Iowa Valley 31-19 in the fourth quarter. Iowa Valley’s Dakota Cooling led the Tigers with 22 points. Offense wasn’t as easy to come by for the Eagles the following night in New Sharon, but the Keota defense was excellent, holding the Warhawks to single-digit scoring in two quarters to earn the 55-37 win. After leading by three after the first, the Eagles put together an impressive second quarter that left them leading by a 28-16 score at the half. Keota’s lead increased to 41-25 after three before the Eagles put it away in the fourth. The Eagles held North Mahaska to just 36 shot attempts, while Keota shot 20-of-60 from the field. Derek Berg led the Eagles with six steals and added four points. Greiner and Lyle led the charge offensively once again, combining for 45 points and eight 3-pointers. Greiner finished with 24 points, six rebounds and six assists, while Lyle dropped 21 points (18 on 3-pointers) and grabbed 11 rebounds. Hahn added six points and seven rebounds for the eighth-ranked (Class 1A) Eagles. Keota played at HLV on Monday, Jan. 13, and then hosted BGM on Tuesday, Jan. 14. The Eagles wrap up their week on Friday at LynnvilleSully.

L-S Hawks Outlast SHS Savages 1-10-2014 Sigourney By

Regional Sports Editor
T h e from last year’s squad, but still makes SICL crown The senior mainover
Lynnville-Sully boys lost a lot co-conference champion what the Hawks did return them a contender for the once again. Hawks used 22 point from guard T.J. Cunningham to tain a double-digit lead Sigourney in the second half to improve to 6-3 with the 60-42 win. “The have one of the best players in the conference, in Cunningham,” Sigourney head coach Mitch Eslick said about Lynnville-Sully. “He can score in a lot of ways and make tough shots. Their other kids all know their roles and are the best team in the league at cutting off the lane and making you score from the perimeter.” Without a dominant inside presence, the Savages were forced to rely on the 3-point shot on Friday in Sully, and as a result, they had one of their best shooting nights of the season. Sigourney drilled a total of eight ‘3s’ against the Hawks, including two each from Kevin Weber and Colby Kerkove. Still, Sigourney was forced to play from behind for four quarters after trailing 34-19 at halftime. The Savages went 8-of19 from beyond the arc on the night. The gritty Savages kept at it in the second half and managed their deficit by doing a few things better in the last two quarters than they did in the first two. “We played a lot better defense in the second half,” said Eslick. “We played really poor ‘D’ in the first half and made it too easy for them to get easy looks. We took away those easy looks in the second half and overall just played better defense. “We also took care of the ball better in the second half,” Eslick added. “We still had way too many turnovers, but did a better job in the second half. But when you don’t defend or take care of the ball, it’s going to be an uphill battle against a team that good.” An impressive third quarter in which the Savages were outscored by just one point by the Hawks left Sigourney trailing 48-32 heading into the fourth, where the Savages played solid once again but couldn’t the gap, as Lynnville-Sully held
close on, 60-42. The loss dropped Sigourney to 3-6 on the season. C o l b y Kerkove’s two ‘3s’ on the night helped him finish with nine points on three-of-five shooting, along with three rebounds. “Colby is getting more confident in his outside shot,” Eslick said of his junior forward. “He’s one of the few ‘bigs’ in this league that can step out and hit from the perimeter. He’s also getting tougher down low. He’s going to have to learn how to battle inside with other ‘bigs’ and keep competing. He’s given us a big spark lately.” Sophomore guard Jordan Albert has been another key piece for Sigourney this season. Albert pitched in five points, three rebounds and an assist for the Savages at Sully. “Jordan’s been great,” Eslick said. “He’s shooting well from the perimeter and has been playing with a lot of confidence. As a team, we want to continue to improve and keep working to get better. We want to be playing our best at the end of the year heading into the playoffs.” Blaine Gretter added ten points and six rebounds; Kevin Weber scored eight points and Shane Swearingen finished with three points and two assists. Peyton Crawford pulled down a team high seven rebounds on the night. The Savages hosted BGM on Monday, Jan. 13, before playing at Iowa Valley the following night. The Savages will finish the week at Belle Plaine on Friday.

A brutal schedule to start the New Year did not work in Keota’s favor last week. The Eagle girls fell twice on the road to two of the top teams in the SICL. On Thursday the Keota girls lost at 15thranked (Class 2A) Iowa Valley, 48-33, before falling at North Mahaska the next night, 44-36. The Eagles were forced to play without floor general Brooke Sieren for most of the Iowa Valley game and all of the North Mahaska game. Sieren came down with strep throat during the week and was unable to play effectively against Iowa Valley’s highpressure zone defense. With Sieren out, Kelsi Sieren, Callie Greiner and Madison Sieren were forced to do the ball handling for the Eagles. Keota didn’t handle Iowa Valley’s pressure well in the first quarter and fell behind by a score of 12-5 heading into the second quarter. Things didn’t improve much for the Eagles in the second period, as the Tigers’ length bothered Keota and limited the purple and gold to just four second-quarter points. At halftime, the Eagles trailed by a score of 20-9. Keota’s offense improved in the second half, but Iowa Valley’s did as well. The Tigers outscored Keota 12-8 in the third and took a 32-17 lead into the fourth. Madison Sieren hit two 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to close the gap on IV’s lead, but the Tigers continued to finish in the paint to keep the Eagles at bay. Sieren led Keota with ten points in the Eagles’ 48-33 loss. Kelsi Sieren had nine points and nine rebounds, while Madison Sheetz added nine points, nine rebounds and five steals. The following night the Eagles traveled to New Sharon and lost a close contest with

With the highly anticipated match-up with SEISC North leading IMS on Saturday, the Pekin boys’ basketball squad could have easily lost focus early in the week and slipped up against either Winfield-Mt. Union or WACO. Instead, the Panthers took care of business by winning at Winfield-Mt. Union, 61-51, and then blowing out WACO, 79-45. Pekin led by eight after the first quarter against WMU but led by just four at halftime. However, the Panthers came out strong in the third quarter and eventually took a doubledigit lead into the fourth, where they held on to win by ten. WACO put up much less resistance than the solid WMU. Against the Warriors, Pekin led by 12 after the first period and proceeded to blow the doors off of a struggling WACO squad in the second. “We had another stellar first half defensive performance,” Pekin
