CSD tax levy percentage stays same, cost increases By BAILEY POOLMAN

CNA staff reporter

Creston Community School District will hold a hearing for the proposed fiscal year 2015 budget at the school board’s regularly scheduled meeting 6 p.m. Monday. The district has a set amount of money to spend according to the FY2015 budget, which is $21,840,957, a decrease from FY2014’s budgeted amount of $27,121,114. Resources Taxes levied on property are set at 15 cents per $1,000 taxable valuation. This is a zero percent difference from the FY2014 budget. The total taxes levied on property increased from FY2014’s budget of $4,738,521 to FY2015’s of $4,779,669. The cost difference, though, is because of a

change in valuation in the school district. The school district could see an increase in state foundation aid for FY2015, also. The budgeted aid amount is at $9,564,253, whereas FY2014’s aid was at $8,758,932. “Your local levy is based on your local taxable valuation,” said Creston Superintendent Steve McDermott. “The state, this time around, will give $6,366 per student. So, whatever the local levy does not cov- McDermott er, the state does.” There could be a decrease in money from transfers-in and transfers-out, which are students moving into and out of the school district. There is a difference of $598,376, from $780,000 during FY2014 to

Up in Smoke adds new ‘Rumors’ way to enjoy barbecue tonight at SWCC By JAKE WADDINGHAM

CNA associate editor


AFTON — Up in Smoke Barbecue, 302 N. Douglas St., in Afton is adding a new way to enjoy their barbecued brisket, pulled pork and chicken — brick oven pizza. And if you live in Afton and don’t feel like leaving the house, Up in Smoke is now delivering their pizzas on Friday and Saturday nights from 5 to 9 p.m. Owner Brad Jones said Up in Smoke has been making pizzas for about t h r e e w e e k s and said it Jones has quickly become a popular choice on their menu. Customers have a choice between traditional toppings such as hamburger, sausage, buffalo chicken and pepperoni or they can try the brick oven pizza with the barbecue meats. “It has been about a 5050 ratio for our barbecue toppings versus our traditional pizza toppings,” Jones said. Right now all pizzas are served on a thin crust. Jones said it only takes four to five minutes to cook one of the pizzas in the brick oven, which can run on wood or propane. Jones said Up in Smoke will be adding another crust option soon that is a little thicker and puffs up around the outside of the pizza. “It will be more of a Neapolitan-style crust,” Jones said. “We are also switching to a cheese that has a little bit of buffalo milk

If you’re looking to hear a juicy rumor, head to Southwestern Community College (SWCC) tonight. Southwestern Community College drama club performs “Rumors” by Neil Simon 7 p.m. at Southern Prairie YMCA’s performing arts center, 1201 W. Townline St. Synopsis Four high-profile couples attend an anniversary party at the home of a deputy New York City mayor and his wife. However, shortly after arriving, the guests discover that there are no servants, the deputy mayor has shot himself in the head (a flesh wound) and the mayor’s wife is missing. Comedy ensues when, given everyone’s upper class status, they decide they need to do everything possible to conceal the events from the police and media while forming their own conclusions and opinions about what is happening around them.

It was the best cheese topping we tried.” The new cheese topping requires a special order and takes two weeks for delievery, but Jones said once the first shipment arrives, they start a schedule to receive it regularly.

Being a dedicated Gonzaga Basketball fan, Regina was glued to the TV during televised games, but more than anything Regina loved animals, especially her dog Mattie. She touched many lives and was a dear friend to many. She will be remembered for her kind spirit and generous heart. She loved helping others and gave generously of her time. What she considered one of her greatest accomplishments in life was raising her two sons. Regina was a selfless giver and would often forego things herself to provide for others. Family was very important to Regina and she attended numerous family reunions throughout the country. She was the “glue” keeping relatives in touch with one another and was always ready to talk to you to catch up with your life and family. Left to cherish her memory are two sons: Jeffery (Denise) Kimpson of Boise Idaho, and Gregory (Rebecca) Kimpson of Mendon, UT; 5 grandchildren; her sister Shirley Kimpson of Creston Iowa and numerous family & friends. Preceding Regina in death were her parents Floyd and Grace Van Pelt and an infant brother, Donald. Regina will be missed by all, but she will live on in our hearts forever.

Be smart with your phone Dear Readers: We can do a lot with our SMARTPHONES these days — access the Internet, social media, email, bank accounts, etc. But there is a lot of personal information stored on your phone — banking, credit cards, etc. — that can make losing your phone really scary, as well as a possible identity threat. Here are some hints to help to help protect your personal information as much as possible: • Set a password or swipe pattern on your phone. It takes only a second or two to “unlock” your phone. • Be careful what you access on your phone. You may want to monitor or check bank accounts and credit-card info on your home computer rather than doing it all on your cellphone. • If you lose your phone, someone may be able to find out all of your personal information. Think twice before putting all of your financial and personal info on your cellphone. If you lose your phone, what information is on there? How many times do we just “speed dial” and not really have all of that information in another place? Sounds silly, but stop

Hints from Heloise right now and try to remember a friend’s phone number. Of course, call the carrier right away so it can shut down the service. Just like with everything else, try as much as you can to take steps to protect your personal information. Every roadblock you can throw up is a tiny step that, in the long run, may prevent you from becoming a victim of identity theft. — Heloise P.S.: While on this subject, can you state right now how many credit cards you have in your wallet? If you had to call and cancel or let the creditcard company know that there might be a problem, can you put your hands on all of the needed information? SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise P.O.

What I do before I go to the airport is take a screenshot of the code and set it as the background image of my phone’s lock screen. That way, I can just press one button to display the image without needing to go through a lot of screens. — Laurel in South Bend, Ind.

Tossing and turning at night? Stop counting sheep and start collecting zzz’s (BPT) — Although many people workout, eat the right foods and are very concerned about their overall health, one important factor is often overlooked: sleep. In today’s 24/7 world, people are often going right up until they have to go to bed‚ leaving them unable to turn off their minds. In fact, according to the National Sleep Foundation (NSF), 41 percent of Americans report having problems with tossing and turning at least a few nights a week. Many people are aware of the benefits of sleep, but with a variety of distractions it can be difficult for them to relax in order to fall asleep. In fact, a recent Healthcare Research & Analytics (HRA) survey found that 57 percent of doctors reported one of their patients‚ biggest hindrances to falling asleep is engaging with electronics such as phones, computers, iPads and the television too close to bedtime. Often people jump to drastic measures to help with sleep issues, but what many do not realize is great sleep can start with simple solutions, like creating an ideal sleep environment that helps them relax. According

to a survey conducted by HRA, 100 percent of doctors agree that an appropriate sleeping environment is critical to aiding a person’s ability to relax so they can fall asleep. What’s more is that half of physicians would recommend their patients use clean, lavender scented bedtime fabrics as a way to help them relax so they can fall asleep. Sleep plays a vital role in good health throughout your lifetime - and getting enough quality sleep can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety, says Dr. Ian Smith, celebrity physician and wellness expert. One of the best ways to commit to a great night’s sleep is by creating an appropriate sleep environment that helps people relax. That’s why I’m excited to share simple solutions for creating a relaxing sleep environment, including using the P&G Sweet Dreams Collection on your bedtime fabrics. Understanding that so many people are taunted by a sleep that never seems to come, P&G created the Sweet Dreams Collection, all official products of the

National Sleep Foundation. The Sweet Dreams Collection including: Tide plus A touch of Downy Sweet Dreams, Downy UNSTOPABLES Dreams, Downy Infusions Sweet Dreams and Bounce Sweet Dreams is formulated with ingredients to clean, soften and freshen bedtime fabrics, including sheets and pajamas, to help create an ideal sleep environment. Here are some additional tips to help you tuck in and turn off at the end of a busy day: • Turn-off electronics: Many people lie in bed and check their phones and

iPads before falling asleep, but the use of these electronics can have negative effects on a person’s ability to fall asleep. Turning off technology at least 30 minutes before bedtime will help you fall asleep. • Create an ideal sleep environment: People can take simple steps toward getting a great night’s sleep by first looking at their sleep environment. According to a recent HRA poll of doctors, the top three recommendations they would give their patients for creating an appropriate sleeping environment are keeping the room quiet, using a good

mattress and pillow, and keeping the room temperature controlled. Additionally, great sleep can start in the laundry room and a simple switch in caring for bedtime fabrics can make a big difference. After all, 71 percent of Americans say they get a more comfortable night’s sleep on sheets with a fresh scent, according to a poll conducted by the NSF. The Sweet Dreams Collection is formulated to allow everyone to create a relaxing sleep environment with fresh, clean, lavender and gourmand vanilla scented linens to help them fall asleep.

• Set the clock: Establish a bedtime hour for each family member to help train their body to relax at the same time each night so they can fall asleep. The NSF recommends doing this every day of the week, including the weekends. • Don’t push it: Tossing and turning can lead to agitation and additional loss of sleep. If you’re unable to fall asleep immediately, go to a different room to relax the body and mind. Keep the electronics unplugged, and consider reading a book or meditating. Once relaxed, head back to bed for a great night of sleep.

The Sound of Music (therapy) If you ever wondered whether music could help protect your health, consider the life of Maria von Trapp — “Louisa” in The Sound of Music. The last of the singing von Trapp children, she passed away this year at 99, more than three-quarters of a century after fleeing Nazi-occupied Austria. But you don’t have to be a world-famous talent to let music soothe the savage beasts of anxiety, pain and depression, and fill you with a feeling of wellness and energy. A recent study out of the U.K. shows that sing-alongs can ease physical discomfort and psychological distress in folks 65 and older who are receiving nursing care for everything from dementia to heart disease. Premature babies seem to breathe, feed and sleep better when lullabies or soothing oceans sounds are brought into the NICU (not too loud, though). And cancer patients report less nausea and lower blood pressure after chemo when they listen to classical tunes. So if you’re feeling stressed, are recuperating post-op or are making a push to get healthier now, try this: —Set aside 10 minutes daily for singing, playing or listening to music that calms you. (No angry lyrics or aggressive rhythms.) —Let your mind and breathing follow the melody or drift into the sounds, putting aside specific worries or thoughts. —Trying to change a behavior or accomplish a goal such as quitting smoking?

Weekly healthy tips Dr. Mehmet Oz, M.D. and Dr. Michael Roizen, M.D.

Tell yourself, “My urge to breathe free is enhanced by the notes.” You’ll be amazed at how much more energy and focus you have when the music stops! DON’T BET YOUR LIFE Groucho Marx hosted “You Bet Your Life” from 1950-1961, but he wasn’t a big fan — even of his own work. (“I find television very educational. Every time someone switches it on, I go into another room and read a good book.”) Although TV may have you betting your life (and brain) every time you tune in, it’s not the watching that’s the problem (too bad Groucho never saw Dr. Oz’s brainstimulating show); it’s that you sit for hours at a time. A recent study concluded that every hour spent sitting in front of the TV shortens your life by 22 minutes. An average North American adult watches nine years of TV over a lifetime. So, if you’re sitting in front of the TV for that long, you’re likely to die about three years earlier than someone who puts in no TV time (unless he or she misses the tornado warning.) Why? Sitting on the couch hour after hour erases muscle tone, slows metabolism and makes fat cells suck in extra fat. That leads to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, dementia — and a lousy sex life.

But you can tune in to better health. Try walking around the room while you watch your favorite program! Walking for 10 extra minutes a day can add two years to your life; walking an extra 45 minutes daily adds five years! (Aim for 10,000 steps daily.) At home, pedal through a “House of Cards” marathon on a stationary bike. We “Bet Your Life” and your RealAge get younger. SWEATING OUT HORMONE THERAPY RISKS Forty-two years ago, when “All in the Family’s” Edith Bunker (Jean Stapleton) headed for menopause, she declared, “I feel like I’m jumping in and out of a hot maze and somebody’s twisting a rubber band around my head.” Back then, we were trying to figure out how best to manage menopause symptoms and determine IF there were risks associated with hormone therapy. Now we know the first line of defense against hot flashes, brain fog and heart palpitations is losing weight if you need to, avoiding inflammatory saturated and trans fats and added sugars and syrups, and getting moderate exercise to reset your thermostat to “cooler.” We also know (after years of debate) that women who aren’t at increased risk for breast cancer or heart disease can benefit from HT.

Therapy should start before age 60, last for up to five years and deliver bioequivalent estrogen and micronized progesterone (if you have a uterus) in the lowest effective dose. Unfortunately, a woman’s stroke risk doubles during the 10 years after her periods stop. And taking HT seems to increase that risk. That’s why we suggest that you ask your doc about taking two low-dose aspirins a day while on HT. And new research reveals another way to make HT safe for you: Getting 210-300 minutes of moderate exercise (walking) per week. It reduces your stroke risk by 20 percent right away. So if menopause symptoms are interfering with sleep, work, your love life and your happiness, talk to your doc about all these ways to “stifle” it. WHO SHOULD GET A F.I.T. AT 40? Pictures of lava tubes that meander through the innards of the Moon reveal safe havens where future astronauts might sleep, protected from radiation and meteorites. Images of your inner passageways also protect you from danger: Colonoscopies that send a tiny camera through your large intestines can ID benign polyps, potential “seeds” of colon cancer. (Both of us had polyps removed when we had our 50th birthday scopes done.) Finding and removing these polyps — called adenomas — may be the main reason overall colon cancer rates in the U.S. have declined (2.8 percent per year for men and 2.2

percent per year for women) every year since 1988. But there’s one problem: Since colonoscopies are recommended for most folks starting at age 50 (earlier if colon cancer is in your family), younger people aren’t aware of their risk, and it’s increasing, as more and more young adults are overweight. Among 20- to 49-year-olds, colon cancer rates went up 1.5 percent per year for men and 1.6 percent per year for women from 1992 to 2005. So here’s a smart move: If you’re 40-50 and overweight or obese, consider getting FIT every year. The fecal immunochemical test (FIT) costs $22 — if insurance doesn’t pay — and can be done easily at home. A stool test kit is mailed to you; you fill the pouch and mail it back. If you do the test annually, it can ID possible colon cancer early, when it’s much easier to treat and cure. That should FIT your schedule! CONSUMER BEEWARE FAKE HONEY Tupelo Honey is a premium American sweet — and, some say, it’s Van Morrison’s best album. But it’s cheap ($16 for 12 ounces) compared to Elvish honey from Turkey, which runs about $194 an ounce. This new global market for super-honey is why North American consumers should BEEware. There’s a buzz about counterfeit honey flooding our grocery store shelves, and it’s threatening not just your enjoyment of a cuppa tea — and your wallet — but it could sap honey’s health benefits.

Since we stopped China from dumping cheap honey on the U.S. market, they’ve started selling it to other countries, where it’s repackaged after distributors wave local fruit or herbs over it and declare it to be “Genuine Exotic Honey.” When it shows up here, it’s been filtered, so pollen (and some healthy ingredients) has been removed. There’s no way to check its origin (pollen is honey’s “DNA” fingerprint). The sweet solution? Senate bill S-662 is designed to protect farmers from unscrupulous overseas honey exporters; let’s hope it passes. But whether it does or not, you should opt for local, raw or unfiltered honey that still contains all the healthy ingredients. If you aren’t overweight or don’t have prediabetes or diabetes, honey’s high glycemic index — it’s 70 percent to 80 percent sugar — shouldn’t prevent you from occasionally enjoying a small (less than 1/2 teaspoon) amount. It can help suppress a cough, ease heartburn, promote sleep and boost immunity (try drinking a tiny amount of honey and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice in a 1/2 cup of hot water). Sweet!

National Digest

Haas leads AUGUSTA, Ga. — Adam Scott soaked in the applause, with cheers greeting him on every fairway and every green before receiving what amounts to golf’s version of a standing ovation as he walked up the hill to the 12th tee. The spectators that gather at the apex of Augusta National’s Amen Corner rose out of their seats as he approached, a memory that the defending Masters champion said Thursday would stick with him forever. “Then I went and hit it in the water,” Scott said, shaking his head, laughing. It might have ruined the moment, but it didn’t ruin the round for Scott, who shot 3-under-par 69 to trail Bill Haasby a stroke on a tricky first day at the Masters. Haas, 31, who attended the Masters for years to watch his father, Jay, compete in the tournament, set the pace with a 68 that included a birdie at the 18th hole. It was the first time Haas shot in the 60s in his 17th round at Augusta National, and was good for the one-stroke advantage over a trio of major champions — Scott, Louis Oosthuizen and Bubba Watson. Watson was the only player without a bogey on his card.

Kaepernick investigation MIAMI — San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players are being investigated by Miami police for an incident earlier this month at a Miami hotel. No arrests have been made, and no charges have been filed. According to an incident report filed with Miami police on Friday, an unnamed woman said she had an encounter with Kaepernick, 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette on April 1 at the Viceroy in downtown Miami. The woman told police she spent time with the three players, drinking and smoking marijuana in Lockette’s apartment and eventually ending up in a bedroom with Kaepernick.

The defending Class 2A state champion Creston/ Orient-Macksburg golf team faced a tough early season opponent here Thursday, hosting Hawkeye 10 Conference rival Atlantic. The Panthers survived the early test, knocking off the Trojans 135-140 at Pine Valley. “A great start to the golf season with a win over Atlantic,” Creston/O-M head coach Jan Lesan said. “63 degrees and a slight wind. Great day for golf.” Four players shot even par 32 or better, including defending individual state champion Carson Whittington. Whittington shot 1-under par 31, as did Atlantic’s Evan Schuler. The tiebreaker for medalist honors went to the handicap hole, which was the 310yard par 4 fourth hole. Whittington, whose tee shot carried the pond and landed just past the green, chipped to within 15 feet and sank a birdie putt. Schuler recorded a par on the hole. Panther senior Hunter Sickels shot even par 32, as did Atlantic’s Kyle Nelson. But, the third and fourth Panther scorers were able to edge out Atlantic’s third and fourth scorers to give Creston/O-M with five-

stroke win. Junior Christian Groumoutis shot a 3-over par 35, while freshman Kyle Somers recorded a 5-over par 37. “Kyle Somers five-putted the first green, but then he settled down,” Lesan said. Rounding out the varsity lineup for the Panthers, Sam Hartsock and Maxx Walters each recorded scores of 38. “Maxx and Sam were not happy with 6-over,” Lesan said. “Both had only a couple of holes apiece that caused problems. They will bounce back.” Senior Evan Nielsen, who competed at the JV level Thursday, posted a round of 2-over par 34. “Evan Nielsen, a varsity player playing JV tonight, showed poise,” Lesan said. The Panthers return to action Tuesday at Winterset against the Huskies and Clarke. Girls With just three golfers available for Thursday’s meet at Atlantic, the Creston/O-M girls golf team was unable to post a team score. Atlantic recorded a team score of 171. “Our first outing of the season went OK,” Creston/O-M assistant coach Kristopher “Kritter” Hayes said. “The three girls that were able to go to Atlantic all did some nice things on the course. All three are aware of the things they can iron out to lower their scores. There were a

lot of positives and room to improve.” Senior Sarah Waigand led the Panthers with a round of 50. Junior Hannah Hagle posted a score of 60 and sophomore Camryn Somers shot a round of 63. It was the first golf competition for both Hagle and Somers in their high school careers. Medalist honors went to Atlantic’s Brooke Fletcher,

Panthers battle with No. 12 Valley girls By LARRY PETERSON

CNA sports writer •

Creston’s girls soccer team faced a daunting task Thursday on a nice sunsplashed evening at Panther Field.

Nodaway Valley/West Central Valley/AdairCasey came in ranked 12th in the state in Class 1A. Off to a 2-0 start, Valley had outshot its opponents 64-6 while holding a 12-1 scoring advantage in the two victories. This is a powerful, speedy

team and for more than 40 minutes the underdog Panthers held their own. Valley held a modest 2-0 lead at halftime, and it was still 3-0 with more than 10 minutes elapsed in the Please see GIRLS, page 9A

Spurs win DALLAS — Patty Mills scored 26 points starting in place of Tony Parker and the Spurs moved to the brink of the top seed in the Western Conference while likely forcing the Mavericks into a must-win situation with their playoff hopes by beating Dallas 109-100 on Thursday night. Making his second start of the season and seventh of his career with Parker nursing a bad back, Mills had 11 points and a pair of steals in the third quarter when the Spurs turned a two-point deficit into an 11-point lead. The Spurs beat the Mavericks for the ninth straight time in the regular season, a streak that has lasted more than two years. Tim Duncan had 20 points and 15 rebounds after leaving briefly in the first quarter.

Fast times at Red Oak High Panthers take advantage of competition, good weather to post fast times By SCOTT VICKER

CNA sports editor •

RED OAK — After a disappointing result at Clarinda on Tuesday, the Creston girls track team bounced back here Thursday with a much better performance at the Lady Tiger Relays. Creston finished third in the team standings in Class AA with 86 points. Southwest Valley finished seventh with 39 points. “The other night, we weren’t bad,” Creston head coach Clay Arnold said. “We just weren’t quite as sharp as we expect. We shored some things up and we got great weather. It was a beautiful, warm night with no wind. Fast track and we ran fast times.” One of the biggest highlights of the night for the Panthers came in the open 800 meters, as freshman Lexie Little ran a big 5-second PR to take second place behind Red Oak’s K a t e Little Walker. Walker ran 2:29.97 to edge out Little’s 2:31.51. Little led through the first lap and battled with Walker throughout the second lap. “There were a lot of great performances for the night, but Lexie Little in the open 800 was not to be denied,” Arnold said. “Lexie is kind of trying to be the third triplet in the Mostek family. The Red Oak girl, she beat Maria (Mostek) down there at Clarinda the other night in the open 800. Little was not going to be scared of her at all.” The Panthers also received a boost with the return of Natalie Mostek to the lineup, after the Cres-

ton junior missed Tuesday’s meet with illness. Her presence was felt right away as she won the high jump by clearing 4-10. She also ran strong anchor legs on the distance medley and sprint medley relays. Natalie Mostek ran 2:30.83 for the 800 leg of the distance medley and ran 1:04.8 for the 400 leg of the s p r i n t N. Mostek medley. “Really encouraging that after being sick, she could pick up right where she left off,” Arnold said. Maria Mostek won the 3,000 meters in 11:57.01 and took second place in the 1,500 meters in 5:15.07. Sophomore Amber Castillo continued her string of impressive performances by helping the shuttle hurdle relay team to third place with the team’s first sub-18 split of the season. Castillo and Josie Sickels ran the two fastest 200 meter splits of the season for the Panthers in leading Creston to third place in the 4x200 relay. Sickels ran 28.08 and Castillo ran 28.16. Running the 400 meter hurdles for the first time in her career, Castillo took sixth place in 1:17.14 out of the Castillo slow heat. In the 100 hurdles, freshman Leah Schuler ran a new personal best time by 2.3 seconds, finishing seventh in 18.61. The Creston 4x400 relay team got redemption for Please see FAST TIMES, page 9A

Panthers, Atlantic split tennis duals Raiders roll

By LARRY PETERSON CNA sports writer •

Creston and Atlantic tennis teams split their season openers Thursday, with the Trojan boys winning 6-3 at the Southwestern courts, while the Panther girls traveled to Atlantic and secured a 7-2 victory. Creston girls won four of the six singles matches, including an 8-3 triumph by sophomore Jenna Taylor at No. 1 singles. The Panthers swept all three doubles matches. “The best weather we have had yet this season minimized problems for both teams,” Panther assistant coach Amanda Plymale said. “Jenna Taylor represented Creston very well by knocking out Atlantic’s returning senior, Leah Tjepkes, at the number one spot.” Ashley Harris came back from a 3-0 deficit to win 8-3 at No. 4 singles. Plymale said all three doubles teams attacked the net to keep their points short. Two sophomore doubles teams also prevailed in JV doubles action. The depth in the Panther lineup was evident in Angie Sorensen and Caitlin McIlravy combining for a 16-1 margin over Atlantic’s fifth and sixth players, and teaming up for an 8-0 doubles victory. “Our team has a lot of potential this year and I am excited for this season,” Plymale said. Garret Taylor won the final four games to prevail 10-7 in his new role at No.

AFTON — Mount Ayr rolled to the team title at the East Union Invitational Tuesday night with 155 points to outdistance runnerup Nodaway Valley with 112. Lenox edged the host Eagles for eighth place, 35-32.


Creston senior Daniel Scott concentrates on returning a forehand shot against Reid Nichols of Atlantic in No. 4 singles play here Thursday. Scott won, 10-7, but the Trojans prevailed in the conference dual, 6-3.

1 singles for the Panther boys, but Atlantic went into doubles play with a 4-2 lead. Taylor teamed with Chantz Davidson to win 10-6 at No. 1 doubles. “Tonight was an absolute perfect night to play tennis,” Panther coach Kevin Cooper said. “We had five guys playing their first varsity meet, so it was good to get the nervousness out of the way. We ended up losing the meet, but we had our chances. I felt like we did some things well, and we have a lot we can improve on.” The Creston teams play Southwest Valley on Monday, with the girls at Corning and the boys in Creston.

Tuesday night, after the Panthers led the entire race before a botched handoff in the final exchange dropped the Panthers to second. Thursday, the team of Jami Sickels, Natalie Mostek, Chelcee Downing and Raegen Smith ran 4:25.21 to edge Council Bluffs St. Albert by 2.7 seconds for the win. “For the past 48 hours, we’ve had nothing on our minds but redemption in the 4x4,” Arnold said. “That was a very, very happy moment for us to get back on track.” Creston returns to action Monday at the home Lady Panther Relays. “Monday night at our home meet, it’s going to be the best competition we’ve had all year and at our home meet,” Arnold said. “We added, this year, Interstate 35, which has a great program. We added Centerville. Late pickup, we’ve got the Harlan Cyclones coming down. “Should be an excellent meet for any spectator to come watch,” Arnold continued. “A lot of good teams, a lot of quality individuals. I guarantee a lot of teams are going to be trying to qualify events for Drake. Going to be an excellent field.”

Area results Southwest Valley senior Sydney Maynes won the Class AA 200 meter dash, running 27.91.

second half after an early reset boot by Hailey Gross. Then, the Creston defense seemed to lose some energy around the 25-minute mark. Goalkeeper Sadie Jones, who finished with 11 saves against 17 Valley shots, caught many of the attempts, but in the end Valley just kept peppering with too much pressure and ended up with a 6-0 victory. Valley improves to 3-0, while Creston falls to 0-3 overall. “We got tired,” Creston coach Kim Lauffer said. “We’re working with quite a few JV kids to get in, because I’m impressed with what we are seeing, but if you take someone like Hanna Luther or Alyssa Higgins out of our defense, we lose a lot of speed and accuracy you need against a team like that. “Still, to be able to compete like we did is exciting,” Lauffer added. “Now we have to step it up. We haven’t worked a lot on our offense yet because we spent the first few weeks pushing defense so much, to contain teams like this. I’m excited about the things we are doing well. There are little mistakes we can fix.” Valley outshot the Panthers 24-4. While Jones was busy with 23 saves, Valley keeper Kassidy Baudler withstood much less pressure with three saves. Jenna Hayes, Hanna Luther, Savannah Hartman and Angelica Claytor had shots for Creston. Hailey Gross scored two

the air, and it it went over his head,” Creston coach Jesus Rodriguez said. “Give credit to our defense. No goals. They played great. It was nice to have Tayler Pettit back. Brant Hudson played his best game of the season, and Kaleb Cook did great, too.” Conner Pals had four total shots on a night when offensive runs were difficult to generate. “We couldn’t pass the ball without getting bumped from behind, or knocked over,” Rodriguez said. “Finally, they got a couple of yellow cards, and we started playing our game a little more.” Alex Nielsen had six saves in the shutout victory.

Sports briefs Spartans swept CEDAR RAPIDS — Kirkwood kept a stronghold on first place in the ICCAC softball standings with an 11-2, 9-1 sweep of Southwestern Wednesday. Both games were five innings. The nationally-ranked Eagles improved to 15-1 in league play and 36-5 overall, while the Spartans fell to 5-9 and 11-14. Ashley Gibbs and Peyton Russell hit home runs for Southwestern in the opener. Emma Ferrin stroked a double in the nightcap. Southwestern is scheduled

to play Central Nebraska Community College today at home, but the coaching staff said Saturday’s conference game at Iowa Central was changed to today because of rain forecast on Saturday. So, the Central doubleheader is cancelled.

Free camps The Creston High School baseball and softball teams will host free camps on April 19. In both cases, the camp for grades 2-4 will be held 9 to 10:30 a.m. and the session for grades 5-7 will be 11 a.m to 12:30 p.m. at the

high school fields. Participants are asked to listen to KSIB radio that morning for weather-related announcements in case of rain. The plan for softball camp during inclement weather is the Creston Middle School gymnasium. Skills to be covered include throwing, fielding, hitting and baserunning. Participants are asked to bring gloves and bats if they have them. For more information contact softball coach Mike McCabe at 641-202-6007 or baseball coach Steve Birchard at 641-202-3450.
