Striegel to Serve as AFA Campus Ambassador From What Cheer, Adam Striegel is motivated and determined to make a positive impact on the world. As a sophomore at Iowa State University studying agricultural education and agronomy, he is off to a good start. From leadership positions to internships, Striegel pursues experiences that set him apart from his peers and prepare him to pursue his dream of being a voice for agriculture. Most recently, he was selected as one of 17 Campus Ambassadors for Agriculture Future of America. AFA is a leader and professional development organization for collegiate leaders and young professionals. Providing leader development, intern support and scholarships, AFA seeks to be a catalyst in the preparation of a new generation of agriculture leaders. Striegel and his fellow team members serve as liaisons between AFA and their college campuses and AFA’s corporate partners. “AFA has played a critical role in my development as a leader in agriculture,” he said. “Through my AFA involvement, I’ve learned valuable skills, met with industry representatives and made meaningful connections with the best and brightest minds agriculture has to offer. AFA has helped accelerate my education and professional image to what it is today.” Striegel and the other ambassadors were selected through a competitive application process to serve as AFA’s student voice. Striegel says he is looking forward to his experiences with the team. “I am excited to work with my team this year to promote AFA and the programs it offers,” he said. In addition to serving as a liaison between AFA and their respective campuses, the Ambassadors will assist the Student Advisory Team in delivering the 2014 AFA Leaders Conference. Held Nov. 6-9 in Kansas City, Mo. Striegel’s entrance into the AFA leader development program began when he was selected as an AFA Leader and Academic Scholar. Since then he has attended two Tracks of AFA Leaders Conference. In addition to his involvement with AFA, Striegel has also been active in other organizations including the Iowa State University Crops Judging Team, Block and Bridle, Student Federation for Agriculture, Collegiate FFA, the Agriculture Education Club, ISU Corn Growers Club, Iowa Corn Collegiate Advisory Team, Alpha Lambda Delta, Phi Eta Sigma Honors Fraternity and Alpha Zeta Honors Fraternity.

~ Jutabha ~
Dr. Puangtong Jutabha, who served the Sigourney community for over 20 years, passed away on Tuesday, April 1, 2014 in Los Angeles. She was 81 years old. Dr. Puang graduated with her medical degree from Chulalongkorn University on April 6, 1957. She was selected to serve as a one-year intern at the University Hospital. Then she came to the United States to intern at St. Thomas Hospital in Akron, Ohio in 1959. She was a resident at Ohio State University from 1960 to 1962 while also enrolling as a postgraduate student. She received her Master of Science in Medicine in June 1962. She returned to Thailand to teach at the new medical school of Chiang Mai University, in her hometown. After four years, Dr. Puang and Dr. Opas moved to the United States permanently in 1966. She was a fellow of
Oak Presbyterian Church which she continued until her health no longer allowed her to play. She graduated Tri-County High School in 1971 and later attended Iowa Methodist School of Nursing in Des Moines. On August 11, 1973 at the White Oak Presbyterian Church, Connie was united in marriage to her high school sweet heart, Larry L. Kapple. Later the same year on December 18, Connie received a kidney transplant from her father. This gift from father to daughter would grant Connie another forty years of life and the opportunity to meet her grandsons. In 1988 she began working at the Keokuk County Medical Clinic where she was employed for twenty five years. Connie was a genuinely loving woman who remained steadfast in her faith. She always acknowledged the blessings in her life, but none brought her more joy then her two grandsons. Connie was preceded in death by her father, William C. Moore and her infant twins: Ross William Kapple and Christopher Thomas Kapple. She is survived by her mother, Gayle Moore of What Cheer; her husband Larry Kapple of Delta; a son, Will (Kelly) Kapple of Delta; a daughter, Elizabeth Steadham of Houston, Texas; a brother, Chuck Moore of What Cheer; a sister, Colleen Shipley of Tiffin; two grandsons: Hunter Kapple and Dillon Kapple.

Dr. Jutabha, or “Puang” as those in the community knew her, moved to Sigourney with her husband Dr. Opas Jutabha in 1968 where they took over the practice of Dr. Gillette who had retired that year. Born in 1933 in Chiang Mai Thailand, Dr. Puang had little trouble adjusting to life in Sigourney, where she and Dr. Opas became fixtures in the community they served. With her ever-present smile and gentle spirit, Dr. Puang was known to all, not only as an expert doctor, but as a warm and loving friend and neighbor. In 1986, after the last of her four children left for school, Dr. Puang moved to the snowbird community of Quartzsite, Ariz., where she and Dr. Opas continued their practice until January of this year. Though they closed their practice, Dr. Opas and Puang maintained their home in Sigourney and were frequent visitors to the town and friends they loved so much. In February of this year, Dr. Puang was diagnosed with brain cancer, and underwent surgery. During her postoperative treatment, Dr. Puang suffered a hemorrhage, which left her unconscious. Dr. Puang passed peacefully at her home in Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 1 surrounded by her family and friends. Dr. Puang is survived by her husband, Dr. Opas Jutabha and her four children, Roy, Rome, Sally and Charlie; and nine grandchildren. Funeral services were held Thursday, April 3 in Los Angeles. A memorial fund in her name has been set up at County Bank, Sigourney.

Violet passed away Thursday, May 8, 2014, at the Griffin Nursing Center, Knoxville, just 13 days shy of her 102nd birthday. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Clyde; companion, Lawrence Scott; siblings Everett

Tales of the Ancient Sportsman by Burdell Hensley What an absolutely gorgeous Sunday morning. Most area schools were holding graduation ceremonies Sunday and it was a perfect day. If anyone was having an outdoor graduation, they had to be thrilled. But maybe they don’t do outdoor graduations anymore. We used to do them at Eddyville, but I must admit that it was a little risky. Sunday morning I drove down to Eddyville to share the Word with the folks at Faith Community Church. It is always a joy to go down there as I have former students from both Twin Cedars and Eddyville in the congregation plus parents of former students. It is just like a family reunion and I love it. Graduation Sunday was slow for the Ancient-ess and I this year. Usually we have several in the family or in the church graduate, but only one this year and she is a special one. We have watched Megan Goemaat from birth to her graduation from North Mahaska and are pleased to share the moment with her. She has developed into a fine young lady and I might also say, a very good track athlete. She will be in three events at this
week’s Girls State Track Meet. In fact, let’s congratulate Coach Malone and the rest of the North Mahaska girls for their win of the team title at the Regional meet in Brooklyn Thursday night. The Warhawks will be sending eight events and 10 athletes to the big show in Des Moines. North Mahaska will have two relays teams competing at state. Those teams are the shuttle hurdle unit of Lorraine Brown, Michaela Heys, Olivia Boender and Jordan Ferguson and the 4X800 crew of Shiana Buchanon, Rachel Sherburne, Megan Goemaat and Tressa Watts. Goemaat will also be in the 3000 and the 1500 while Brown will be in the 100-meter hurdles and the high jump. Julia Groenenboom is in the shot put field and Cassidy Arvidson is in the 200 competitions. My hometown Griswold Tigers will be seeking their fourth consecutive Class 1-A state title and they are loaded, but if any team were in position to unseat them, it would have to be the Pekin Panthers. The Panthers are sending 12 events to state and 16 athletes and obviously they are looking for gold.
We have three other area girls competing in Class 1-A. Sigourney’s Becca Ohland will be in the 100-meter hurdle field while Keota’s Kelsi Sieren is in the 400-meter hurdles. English Valleys distance ace, Allison Hewitt is in the 1500-meter field. In Class 2-A EddyvilleBlakesburg-Fremont and Pella Christian each have athletes entered. The Rockets will have Tasha Alexander in the high jump and the 400 hurdles and she will be joined by Sadie Baugher, Bailey Baker and Karlie Taylor in the shuttle hurdle relay. Pella Christian will have Christa Veenstra in the 400 dash and they have the 4X100, 4X200 and sprint medley relays in the meet. Leah Breon and Sarah Meyer are in all three of the relays while Veenstra joins the medley and the 4X200. Kathryn Van Tuyl is on the 4X100 and the medley, Taylor Bolt is on the 4X100 and Morgan Anderson joins the 4X200 team. The Pekin Panthers will make a bid in Class 1-A boys with nine events and 13 athletes in the meet. The Panthers will be led by the strength of four relay units.
Chase Copeland, Tyler Copeland, Brody Long and Christian Wittrock make up the 4X100 and 4X200 relays. On the medley C. Copeland, Long, Wittrock will be joined by Cade Millikin and Millikin will be joined by Austin Farris, Ryan Millikin and Cole Reighard on the 4X800 relay. C. Copeland is in the 100-meter dash and Ryan Millikin is in the 1600 meter run. In the field events the Panthers have Colton Lanman and Zack Conger in the high jump and Jared Bond and Eric Adam will both be in the shot and the discus. North Mahaska will be represented by Trent Wanders in the 1600 meters and Wanders will be joined by Jakob Bortell, Corey Roozeboom and Chris Kubli on the 4x800 relay. Sigourney will have Kevin Weber in the 110 high hurdles while Keota sends the medley relay team of Ben Horras, Nate Sieren, Kolton Greiner and Luke Lyle. I covered the Regional meet at Tama Thursday night and what a miserable night. It was cold, windy and wet and that is a poor combination for track. I felt sorry for the kids who had to compete as the conditions were much less
Ponderings of the Heart it on a stick so you can easily carry it over your shoulder!” That was not what I expected her to say. I truly thought she would beg me to stay at home. The thought came to me that it would have been better if I had obeyed her. Without much time elapsing, I found myself walking toward “Hell’s Half Acre” with our collie dog, Max, close at my heels. When we arrived at the sought out destination, which was over the hill and out of sight of the family farmhouse, I remember looking back and realizing I was truly alone. I hastily pulled a small limb over to the side of the forsaken land and began to untie the lunch in the red handkerchief while sitting on that limb. The handkerchief contained a peanut butter sandwich; a small apple and a jelly jar of water. I couldn’t think of anything else to do, so the dog and I shared the lunch. Oh, I forgot to tell you there was a small piece of paper enclosed that read, “Janie, I’ll miss you. I love you. Mom.” I recall reading it out loud to Max as tears rolled non-stop down my face. He seemed to understand my despair and quickly licked my face. Then...I happened to look up in the sky. It was beginning to darken, but trusty old Max was a comfort as he put his head in my lap. I told him, “ I thought it was going to rain.” I tried to comfort him by saying, “Don’t worry, Max, everything will be O.K. We will always be together.” Max and I had a good way of communicat-
ing. It seemed to me he understood my feelings better than any human being. Then...out of what seemed like nowhere, a clack of thunder and lightening filled the sky. I was frightened and so was Max. One more clack of lightening and more thunder, and instantly I began to run for home as fast as my feet could carry me and Max was again right at my heels. In no time at all I was opening the door to the screened porch and there was Mom with her arms outstretched. She gave me the biggest hug and said, “Janie, I am so glad you decided to come home.” Crying, I told her how sorry I was and I really did want to live with her in the farmhouse.” She instantly said that she had forgiven me.” Then, she added, “Let’s not tell your Dad that you wanted to run away from home.” Right at that particular moment, I felt like the happiest girl in the whole world. I had a Mom and Dad and a dog that loved me. I had my own room in the farmhouse. I wondered, “Why a person would ever want to live in Hell’s Half Acre.” I recall thinking, “I had everything a girl could possibly desire.” By the way, and as far as I know, Mother nor I never mentioned this happening to Dad. Oh, there’s one more thing she said, “Janie, there are some things in life best left unsaid.” Now as an adult, I certainly believe my mother had much wisdom! What do you think? God bless you. See you next week...same place!
Reminiscing By Hilda Souer Just got to thinking about “things and places back then”. One of the first things that came to mind when my father played his bass drum. This was when the local band played on Saturday nights (in summer) in the bandstand, yes Delta had a bandstand. It was located in the area North of the bank and near the alley. While the band was playing Mother spent her time visiting with her friend, Ruth Sturdevant who was in charge of the dry goods area of the Delta Mercantile (familiarly called ‘Delta Merc’). My brother spent our time with friends and we would walk up and down the sidewalks, and listening to the band. In remembering this, I thought of the changes along this same street The Delta ‘Merc’ was on the West side of the street. The North part of the store had a large assortment of groceries. The two areas that were of special interest (to me) was the large assortment of candies behind the glass counter. Then, hanging not far from this area were two bundles of bananas. When a customer asked for bananas the clerk would be told the number desired and then the clerk would cut off the desired amount. At that time, and on the same
street, there was a drug store, barber shop, butcher shop, dress shop, hardware, men’s clothing store and lumber yard. Today this is the area where highway 21 goes through Delta. On the other street back then were two service stations (one had a small ice house and the other had a hoist to service cars). Also there was a bank, two cafes, a furniture store, another grocery, a bakery and the post office. Adjacent to the post office could be seen some of what was part of the foundation of a hotel. A hitching rack was along the street adjacent to this. The Rock Island railroad depot was not far south of the second service station along this street. Then I remember my parents telling me of a pickle plant located east of this service station. The second service or gas station building remains standing today. Back then the telephone office was across the street from it and west of the men’s clothing store or today’s Delta Grocery. Earlier I told of the band playing on Saturday nights in the Summer was another form of entertainment would sometimes occur on the south side of the second street. This is where outdoor movies were shown in the
lot east of the small cafe. Those wanting to see the movie sat on long wooden boards fastened to tile legs. In reference to the men’s clothing store, on the top floor was a dentist’s office. Then, many years later there was a pool hall and large entrance area. Then, later still, was a skating rink in the basement level and a small grocery to the north of the men’s clothing store. In thinking about the railway depot I remember going there at least twice to board the train. Another time was to wait for the train at the crossing not far from my daughter’s piano teacher. Another second story place was above the business at the north end of those on the west side of the main street. At the front was a doctor’s office and the lodge hall for use of Masons and Order of the Eastern Star members. The north, and across the street was the fire station and town hall. In thinking about the cafe (Brainard’s Cafe) located adjacent to Delta ‘Merc’, I recall this was where I had my first frozen candy bar. Then, a Three Muskateer was a favorite because it was not one, but three small bars, vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. Today it’s the same size but one flavor.
Twin Cedars 10-4. Tina DeHaan and Patty VerMeer led PC with doubles. Dixie Jones and Diane Bonnett had hits for TC. May 29 - Lorraine Williams, former Lacey all-stater, was awarded the senior trophy at Iowa Wesleyan and lauded for her play that earned her All-American honors and a trip abroad with the USA Girls Basketball Team. 25 years ago: May 26, 1989 - Pella Christian opens with a 10-0 win over Eddyville and a 2-1 win over Chariton. Brad Nikkel fired a three-hit shutout at Eddyville and Chris Fynaardt tossed a five-hitter at Chariton. Jeff Zylstra paced the Eagles with a home run and two doubles against Eddyville and a pair of hits against Chariton. May 27 The North Mahaska medley team of Brett McGriff, Chris Bouma, John Knoot and Travis Beyer won on the first day of the Boy’s State Track Meet. McGriff was fourth in the long jump to help his team into the lead after the first day. Have a super week and I will remind you that those who keep a neat desk never experience the thrill of discovery.

By Jane Green Larson We all have memories that we ponder from time to time and I am so glad for the opportunity of sharing in this newspaper. Most of all, I am elated that so many of you enjoy my memories of my childhood. I have another one for you today. It was first published in the What Cheer paper on May 13, 2010. This particular incident came to my mind the other day, so I went on a search to find it in my archives of memories. It was published in my many writings of “Memories of an Iowa Farm Girl.” It proved to be a learning lesson for my life...This one happened during the summer before I entered the fourth grade. There was a half acre of land on the back part of our farm property that was on a steep hill, and had become overgrown with broken tree limbs, thistles, wild flowers, thorny brush and with some poison ivy growing abundantly. Dad and Mom always referred to this section of land as, “Hell’s Half Acre.” It was such a small piece of land that my Dad said was unsuitable for farming. One day, I was punished for a wrongdoing and I became very angry with my Mother. I told her that I was going to run away and live the way I wanted to live and no one could bother me again. Then much to my surprise I heard myself saying, “I am going to move to Hell’s Half Acre!” However, much more to my surprise my Mother said, “O.K., Janie, I will pack some food and put it in one of your Dad’s red handkerchiefs and tie
than ideal. I went up to the press box to get the material I needed and John Legg was on the mike. John asked if I needed a dry place to work and I said that would be excellent. He told me to take the north room of the box and I holed up there and didn’t feel at all guilty. Let’s take a look at what happened in our yesterdays. 100 years ago: May 25, 1914 - The Brighton boys came over to Keota for a Tri-County League baseball game. When the dust had cleared, Keota owned a 13-0 victory. Keota has played and won five games this year. 75 years ago: May 27, 1939 The Oskaloosa CCC camp boxing team won 9-of-10 matches with Sigourney. The lone Sigourney win came when John Dayton beat Cedric Kirby in a rousing match. May 29 - Martinsburg’s Dickey was fifth in the 880 and Smith was fifth in the discus at the State Track meet. 50 years ago: May 27, 1964 The Osky Connie Mack team belted Grinnell 14-4. Tom Adreon led the Mackers with a two run single and a three run homer. May 27- Carolyn Van Arkel tossed a two-hitter as Pella Christian beat
By Janet Rauch Wednesday was a sad day at Donna’s, as her sister Darlene went back home to California. Judy, Donna’s daughter, drove her to Des Moines to get on her plane. They had lunch at Culver’s. Donna didn’t feel up to riding along. Jim had a doctor’s appointment. Darlene got to go to Julie’s graduation Sunday and her party Saturday evening. Bev had a supper grilling steaks Sunday evening. Mindy’s boys had birthdays. Mindy is Bev’s daughter, who works at the doctor’s office in Monte. Kenny and I went to Des Moines Wednesday to have lunch and visit with his sister, Margorie Stevens, and his brother, Larry and wife Carol. Thy have moved from Colorado to Missouri. We went to Sugar Shack in Altoona for lunch and for dessert, stopped at a place that has all kinds of yogurt. You take a dish and go down the line and fill it with whatever flavor you want and put all kinds of toppings on, then you have it weighed to see what it will cost. It is soooo good! We visited at Margie’s and met her dog, Baxter. He is a black really shiny Lab and extra friendly. Casey Pierce has been under the weather for a while. Bob Rauch went to Humbolt to get repairs for his tractor. He came down and visited Friday. Kenny and I went and got some shopping done in Grinnell and on to Newton for some sales at Walgreens. We were late getting started as Dolly escaped and we had a time looking for her. I was just sick as I was afraid those darned big birds had got her. Jim Fisk seems better after his shots. He and Pam and Larry Flanders went to Cantril shopping Saturday after he got home from his breakfast at Pinecone. They have a store with about everything you can imagine. Bev came over to help Donna with lunch. Judy and her family went to Illinois for Steve’s nephew’s graduation. His mother, Jane Audas, went Friday to stay over. Little Hunter went also. Lots of folks have been mowing their yards. Kenny mowed ours Saturday. Casey Pierce and Bobby put his tractor back together this week. You don’t keep Casey down long. Ellen Zimmerman and I sang at church Sunday with Jeanie, Ellen’s sister, playing the piano.

Tyler Geiger played his guitar and sang at church also. Lavern Dody took soil and grass seed to put on his wife Judy’s grave, where it had sunken. He also put some on Arlene Rauch’s grave where it had sank and put grass seed on. I talked to him the other day. It was nice of him to do this. Shelby, my daughter, and Tom, went to his daughter’s graduation at Marengo Sunday afternoon. Myla Kurk, Shelby’s granddaughter, went too. Robie Yeager was at church. She had gotten her retainer off her foot and was glad for that. She’d had it on for quite some time. I haven’t heard from Delores Schmidt for a while. Her granddaughter said at church she was back at North English Nursing home. She’s had quite a time. Jerry Cranston’s little grandson was at church and is so good. He is so cute and has enough hair to almost need a haircut. Camie is a good mother and takes good care of him. His great grandmother, Karen, would have loved to see him. Talking to Jerry’s daughter, Laurie, we were remembering when Karen was Christmas shopping and Jerry told her she might as well get Lori a car coat as she was in the car all the time anyway, Ha! Karen and I did a lot of going when the kids were little.

The News-Review IHCC and WPU Announce Partnership
Indian Hills Community College and William Penn University have announced a partnership to provide a seamless academic progression for nurses who choose to enroll in a RN-BSN program after receiving their registered nursing license. Beginning this fall, licensed Registered Nurses who have completed their Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) may choose to enroll in William Penn’s RN-BSN completion program located on the IHCC campus in Ottumwa. This partnership allows the new graduates or returning nurses to work full-time and attend classes just one day a week on the IHCC Main Campus. William Penn provides scholarships and financial aid for students which helps to make higher education more affordable. Indian Hills Dean of Health Sciences, Dr. Jill Budde, is pleased to offer the new opportunity for the BSN completion program. “This partnership allows our Indian Hills ADN graduates to seek higher levels of education to better serve patients in our region and do so right here on the Ottumwa campus,” she said. “Getting a strong academic start at Indian Hills provides students a solid foundation to build upon. We feel this seamless transition with William Penn will encourage RNs to take the next step in earning an advanced education, which can provide leadership opportunities in the future.” For more information about the WPU nursing program and how rewarding the experience of earning your BSN might be, visit www.wmpenn.edu/nursing or call 800-779-7366 to speak with an admissions counselor.
Letter to the Editor:
Tuesday, June 3 is a very important day for all Iowans. Unfortunately, few of us are even aware of the significance of that date and even fewer of us participate in this event. June 3rd is the day for primary elections notorious for low voter turnout. But, this year, it’s a huge day and it is vitally instrumental in determining YOUR future. Thinking Iowans have been stunned and angered by what they’ve been living through for the past six years. We’ve been witness to a spiraling America on all fronts. From a steadily failing economy doomed to lead us into something much worse than just a “depression”, to a society increasing its absolute dependence on government to a level that surpasses most Communist nations. Stopping America’s demise is a huge undertaking. Today, only a very small handful of Washington, D.C. politicians are capable of salvaging the nation we so love. This is where Tuesday, June 3 becomes so very important! On this day, we will choose a candidate for the U.S. Senate. If he or she should win the general election this November Iowa would play a very large role in America’s sorely needed recovery. Out of the entire, rather large, field of Senatorial candidates only one can be trusted for the huge job of restoration. Republican Sam Clovis easily meets those requirements. (Because of space limitations I’ll beg you to do your own research on Sam.) Iowa is a “closed primary” state. This means you MUST declare yourself as a “Republican” to be able to vote for Clovis. I certainly realize for many of you this may seem repugnant. (Trust me - I do feel your pain!) But, time is running very short for saving America. The Democrat Party has gone completely over to the dark side and many Republicans have joined them. But, the only few remaining good guys (that stand an actual chance of winning) are to be found in the Republican Party. Send them all a message and help Sam Clovis begin to save us all on Tuesday, June 3. Ed Dursky, Ottumwa.

Hewett Goes Back-To-Back 5-15 1A State Qualifying Meet @ Belle Plaine
By Adam Meier, Regional Sports Editor For the second time in two years English Valleys’ Allison Hewett qualified for the State Track & Field Meet in the 1,500meter run. Hewett came in first in the Belle Plaine district by finishing in a time of 5:19.49. Winning the District title was anything but routine for Hewett, though. Hewett passed Lisbon’s Kendra Schmidt (5:22.64) and Iowa Valley’s Belle Hartman (5:26.39) in the final 150 meters to win gold. The girls’ 1,500-meter run is scheduled for 2:15pm on Saturday, May 24.

By Adam Meier, Regional Sports Editor You don’t have to be the top performer in your district to qualify for State; you don’t even have to finish second. The top three finishers in the 110high hurdles in the Brooklyn district each qualified for State last Thursday, and Sigourney’s Kevin Weber was one of them. Weber, a senior, however, wasn’t content with finishing second or third at Districts, so he decided to just win it. Weber ran a personal-best time of 15.62 seconds to finish ahead of Lynnville-Sully’s Caden Doll (15.75) and Darin Hofer (15.83) in the 110-meter high hurdles, qualifying him for State automatically as the six seed in 1A. Weber is scheduled to run in the first heat of prelims on Friday, May 23, at 11:20; L-S’s Hofer will also be
in the first heat. Becca Ohland, another senior, didn’t immediately know her State fate until the following morning. By running at time of 16.72 seconds in the 100-meter hurdles at Districts at BGM, Ohland finished second behind North Mahaska’s Lorraine Brown (16.44), but still locked down the number-14 (out of 24) seed at this week’s State Meet in Des Moines. Ohland, along with NM’s Brown, will run in the second of three heats in the 100-meter hurdle prelims, which will start at 11:40am on Friday, May 23. Finals for the 100-meter hurdles and 110-meter high hurdles will be on Saturday, May 24, from 12:35pm to till roughly 1pm. As a team on Thursday at Districts the Sigourney boys finished fifth out of 12 teams with 59 points; Lynnville-Sully won with 149. Other than Weber’s win in the 110 highs, Sigourney’s top finisher came in the form of Tyler Crawford. The freshman clocked in with a personal best time of 5:01 in the 1,600 and finished second. The Savages also got a pair of place winners in the 800-meter run; senior Jeremiah Green finished
fifth (2:19.99) and freshman Will Flanegin finished sixth (2:20.80). In addition to his win in the 110 highs, Weber finished second in the long jump (18’9.5’’), but came up over six inches shy of qualifying for State. Other notable performances from the Sigourney boys included a seventh-place finish from Peyton Crawford in the shot put (40’8’’), eighth-place finish from Bryce Goldman in the 100 (12.13 seconds) and fifth-place finishes in the 4x100 (47.08) and 4x200 (1:41.57). The Sigourney girls also placed fifth (39 points) out of 12 teams at Districts. Sigourney’s 4x100 crew of Allison Schroeder, Jordan Carter, Mallory Shaw and Ohland finished fourth in a time of 57.21 seconds. Schroeder also ran in the 100-meter hurdles and placed seventh with a time of 19.02 seconds. Also coming through with great runs were Lily Hammes and Jordan Carter. Hammes placed third in the 800 with a seasonbest time of 2:41, while Carter clocked in at 1:05.95 in the 400 to also finish third.

Panthers Claim Districts, Onward to State
5-15 1A State Qualifying Meet @ Highland, Riverside
By Adam Meier, Regional Sports Editor Both the Pekin boys’ and girls’ track & field squads had no problem outscoring their opposition at last Thursday’s District State Qualifying Meet at Highland, Riverside. Davis Eidahl’s boys’ team finished 38 points ahead of secondplace Highland, Riverside, while Josh Roudabush’s girls’ team outscored second-place Winfield-Mt. Union by an outrageous 110 points. In addition to claiming District team titles, both the Pekin boys’ and girls’ squads qualified a myriad of relays and individuals for this week’s State Track & Field Meet at Drake Stadium in Des Moines. The Pekin boys qualified nine events for State, three of which will have two Pekin individuals competing in them. Eric Adam and Jared Bond qualified in both the shot put and discus, while Zach Conger and Colton Lanman each qualified in the high jump. Conger and Lanman each qualified for State by reaching the 6’0’’ mark at Districts at Highland. Meanwhile, Adam threw distances of 49’2’’ in the shot put and 134’7’’ in the discus, and Bond tossed 44’11.5’’ in the shot put and 139’10’’in the discus. Pekin’s other two individuals to earn trips to Drake Stadium were Chase Copeland in the 100-meter dash (11.90 seconds) and Ryan Millikin in the 1,600 (4:52); Millikin in the only freshman in Class 1A to qualify in the 1,600-meter run. Copeland, along with Brody Long, Christian Wittrock and Tyler Copeland, will run in Pekin’s State-qualifying 4x100 (45.63 seconds) and 4x200 (1:34.73) relays at State this week as well. Chase Copeland, Long, Christian Wittrock and Cade Millikin also qualified Pekin’s distance medley relay (3:52.73) for the State Meet. Cade Millikin, Ryan Millikin, Austin Fariss and Cole Reighard put together perhaps the team’s most impressive relay in the 4x800. The four of them clocked in at 8:38 at Districts and ran the ninth-fastest 4x800 time in Class 1A in Districts. The Pekin girls qualified in a total of 13 events, including three individual events that will have two Lady Panthers competing in them. High jumpers Beth Atwood and Kaysha Dodson each jumped heights of 4’10’’ at Districts to qualify for State, while Shelbie Williams (106’5’’) and Bridget Fritchen (103’11’’) each earned trips to Des Moines as well. Williams also qualified in the shot put by throwing a distance of 38’6.5’’, making her the number-two seed in Class 1A. A pair of Lady Panthers will also be running in the 3,000-meter run at State and they’ll be representing the top two seeds in all of Class 1A. By winning Districts in a time of 10:54.80, Gwynne Wright earned the top seed in Class 1A. Finishing second behind Wright in a time of 11:16.51, sophomore Taylor Lock clinched a State berth and will be the number-two seed. Wright, who is also a sophomore, will be running
as the number-two seed in both the 800 (2:23.57) and 1,500-meter run (5:05.80) at State; Griswold’s Rebekah Topham is the top seed in both events. Wright will also be running the anchor leg of Pekin’s top-seed distance medley relay (4:26.77), which also consists of Kaylee Linder, Sloan Reighard and Samantha Wright. In addition to running the 400-leg of Pekin’s distance medley, Samantha Wright will also be running in the 400-hurdles at State. Wright qualified by running at time of 1:12.38 at Districts. Mallory Reed, Pekin’s best hurdler, earned a District crown and State berth at Highland by running a time of 16.27 seconds in the 100-meter hurdles; she’ll be the numberfour seed at State. The Lady Panthers also qualified for State in four other events, including the 4x100, which Pekin claimed the number-one seed in. Reed, Jess Horras, Nikole Arendt and Linder, clocked in at 52.40 seconds to win a District title and earn the top seed at State. Also qualifying for State was Pekin’s 4x400 (Whitney Horras, S. Wright, Tayler Winn, Taylor Reynolds), 4x800 (Reynolds, Reighard, Shea Dahlstrom, W. Horras) and sprint medley (Reed, J. Horras, Linder, Reynolds). The State Track & Field Meet runs from Thursday, May 22, to Saturday, May 24. The Pekin girls’ team, along with North Linn and Griswold, are considered the favorites to bring home the team title from Drake Stadium.

The four Eagles combined to finish the mile long event in 3:51.67, roughly one second behind their fastest time of the year. Horras and Sieren exchanged crisp handoffs between the 200 legs, before Greiner extended Keota’s lead over BGM to about 20 meters. Luke Lyle sealed the deal for the Eagles by running a strong 800 to sustain a sizeable lead and bring home gold for Keota. The Eagles earned the number 17 seed at State and are scheduled to run
Boys’ Medley, Kelsi Sieren Off to State at around 12pm on Friday, May 23. Belle Plaine and Pekin will also be in Keota’s heat. While Horras, Sieren, Greiner and Lyle had zero doubt that they’d be running inside Drake Stadium, senior Kelsi Sieren wasn’t so sure. After finishing second behind Moravia’s Autumn McDanel at Districts last Thursday in the 400-meter hurdles, Sieren needed to wait for all of the Class 1A results to get received by the state to see if she cracked the top-12 non-winners in Districts. As it turned out, Sieren just did make it, earning the 24th and final qualifying spot for State with
a time of 1:12.48. Sieren is scheduled to run at 10am on Friday, May 23; she’ll be in the first heat, along with Moravia’s McDanel and Pekin’s Samantha Wright. Junior Brooke Sieren didn’t run fast enough to qualify for State on Thursday in Brooklyn, but she did run some of her fastest times of the season. Sieren placed fifth in the 200-meter dash with a time of 29.90 seconds, and finished seventh in the 100 with a time of 14.34 seconds. Maggie Baker did, in fact, run her fastest time of the year in the 100-meter hurdles, clocking in with

a time of 19.42 seconds to place eighth. The Keota girls’ squad finished seventh out of 12 teams with 27 points. North Mahaska took the District title with 173 points. On the boys’ side the Eagles placed eighth out of 12 teams with 33 points. Lynnville-Sully was crowned District champion with 149 points.

EV Girls’ Golf Best In SICL 5-14 South Iowa Cedar League Golf Tournament @ North English (girls) By Adam Meier, Regional Sports Editor The South Iowa Cedar League girls’ golf race appeared fairly open heading into last Wednesday’s conference meet at Knoll Ridge Country Club in North English. However, at the end of the day on Wednesday, the English Valleys girls’ team settled things fairly convincingly, winning the SICL team title by ten strokes over second-place Iowa Valley. EV’s top four players combined for an 18-hole score of 383, with Rylee Voss leading the way with a 90. Voss finished tied for second with Iowa Valley’s Anna Smith in the individual standings; HLV’s Tanner Taylor took first with an 87. Also contributing to EV’s team title was the trio of Sydnie Stephenson, Paige Hester and Jessica Riegel, who all had sub-100 days. Stephenson finished up with a score of 95, which got her fifth-place overall. Meanwhile, Hester and Riegel each ended their days with 99s, tying them for eighthplace overall. Claire Kingland finished outside of EV’s top four by shooting a 116. Logan Mork’s Sigourney Savages also had a solid day
at Knoll Ridge last Wednesday. The Savages were led by freshman Kendall Streigle, who tied for tenth place overall with a score of 100. In addition to Streigle, the Savages got good days from sophomore Stacy Mohr and junior Brooke Schroeder, who each finished with 103s. Tying with scores of 112 and bringing Sigourney’s final team tally to 418 were juniors Katie Dillon and Ashley Shadley. The Savages finished fourth as a team behind English Valleys, Iowa Valley (393) and North Mahaska (402). Keota’s lone golfer at SICLs came in the form of Grace Shemanski. Shemanski, a freshman, shot a 57 on her first nine holes and 50 on her second nine, bringing her final tally to 107. The Sigourney and Keota girls golf Regionals was Monday, May 19, at New London’s Deerwood Golf Course. Regional Finals, should Sigourney or Keota advance as a team or individually, is Tuesday, May 27, at Brooklyn-Victor Country Club. The Bears hosted the first round of Regionals on Monday. The Bears play at Reinbeck’s Oak Leaf Country Club on May 27.
Grimm & Garber Impress at SICLs 5-13 South Iowa Cedar League Golf Meet @ Brooklyn-Victor (boys) By Adam Meier, Regional Sports Editor Two of the most impressive performances at last Monday and Tuesday’s South Iowa Cedar League boys’ golf meet came from two of our area golfers. English Valleys’ Brennen Grimm and Tri-County’s Mason Garber finished first and third, respectively, at SICLs last week and gained great momentum heading into Sectionals at Keota. Grimm, a junior, took the individual conference crown by shooting a 38 on his first nine holes, followed by a 39 on his second nine, to finish with the day’s best score of 77. Meanwhile, Garber, a sophomore, finished with a 79 by shooting a 41 through his first nine and a 38 on his last nine holes. BGM’s Colton Ryan placed second (78) and helped lead the Bears to the team title (328). Grimm and his EV squad finished fifth as a team with a score of 356. Along with Grimm’s great day, the Bears got good efforts from Davis Axmear (92), Andrew Kerkove (92) and Adam Kerkove (95).
Finishing in sixth right behind English Valleys were the Sigourney Savages. Colby Kerkove led the way for Sigourney by shooting an 18-hole round of 86. Freshman Kaden Bensen had the second-best day of any Savage, finishing with a 92. Shane Swearingen shot a score of 95 and Jordan Albert came in at 96, bringing Sigourney’s team score to 369. In seventh place behind EV and Sigourney was Keota. The Eagles were paced by Grant Hill and Kolton Greiner, who each shot 87s. John Mather came through with Keota’s thirdbest day with a 97, while Zach Mousel and his score of 107 brought Keota’s team tally to 378. Because of a senior class trip, Tri-County’s only golfer at conference besides Garber was Chase Sellers, who finished with a score of 92.

Also solid at Districts was TC’s 4x200; the same four runners placed seventh in a time of 1:46.22. Bringing home another seventh-place relay finish was the group of Walter McKay, Clay Harper, Joe Haberling and Ben Edmundson. The four of them made up TC’s 4x400 relay, which finished seventh in a time of 4:20.96. As for the individual events, Tri-County’s Jacob Bombei brought home the best finish for the Trojans, claiming sixth place in the 400 (59.45 seconds). Jake Brumbaugh also ran well
in the 200-meter dash, coming in eighth place with a time of 25.72 seconds. Nick Watts finished up his field-event career with a seventh-place finish and 5’6’’ mark in the high jump at BGM. Such has been the case for much of the season, the Tri-County girls had their best finishes in the field events. Megan Striegel placed sixth in both the shot put (28’9.5’’) and the discus (86’9’’), while Nikaya Dowd got seventh in the shot put (28’6’’). Natalie Steinke and Sara Gragg also turned in great showings in the long jump. Steinke, a freshman, finished in sixth-place with a mark of 13’5.5’’, while Gragg, a senior, placed seventh with a distance of 13’4.25’’. Gragg also brought home a pair of good finishes on the track. Gragg came in eighth in the 100-meter dash with a time of 14.41 seconds, and she was also part of TC’s 4x100. Gragg, along with Kristin Krumm, Emma Bair and Dowd, finished the 4x100 in a time of 1:00.49 and placed eighth.
