  • Sports Calendar: October 14

    It's a busy day on the sports calendar as the postseason draws closer and closer for many of the area teams.

    Here's a look at all the action taking place Tuesday.

    The Red Oak volleyball team will be home Tuesday as they host a triangular against Atlantic and Shenandoah. The action all starts at 5:30 p.m. at the Red Oak High School gymnasium.

  • Griswold splits week against conference foes

     GRISWOLD — The Griswold Tigers fell short Thursday night at home when they lost to IKM-Manning 3-1.

    IKM-Manning won the first two games in close fashion, 25-21 and 26-24.

    The Tigers kept their hopes alive with a 27-25 game three win.

    It was all IKM-Manning in the fourth game though as they won 25-10.

    Melodie Anstey and Sydney McLaren represented the bulk of the Griswold offense.

  • Tigers downed by SEV

     RED OAK — The Red Oak football team’s season hit a road bump when they lost Friday to the Southeast Valley Jaguars 28-13 at Russ Benda Field.

    Both Red Oak and Southeast Valley struggled to put points on the board early in the first quarter.

    It would be Southeast Valley who struck first, though, as Jay Lizer scored on a 5-yard run with 1:46 left in the first quarter. The Jaguars missed the two-point conversion, but led 6-0.

  • SWV sweeps triangular, falls to Bedford

     CLARINDA — The Southwest Valley Timberwolves volleyball team swept its triangular Thursday in Clarinda, defeating both Mount Ayr and Clarinda.

    They overcame a close game one loss to defeat Mount Ayr 2-1. The Raiderettes took the first game 26-24.

    Southwest Valley won a close game two 25-22 and then easily took the deciding third game 15-6.

    Marie Palmer had nine kills, with six digs and a block to lead the way for the Timberwolves.

  • Round Up: Stanton falls short at Sidney

    SIDNEY — The Stanton Vikings have now lost two straight after Friday night’s 35-20 loss on the road to Sidney in 8-man District 8 action.

    The Sidney running game, powered by Blane Moreland and Erick Rodriguez contributed to the winning effort. Moreland had 100 yards on 13 carries, while Rodriguez had 70 yards on 14 carries with two touchdowns.

    Michael Coates had two touchdown passes for Sidney, both to Mica Graham.

  • Corner Conference Tourney: Stanton places second, East Mills takes third

     For the first time in a decade, the Stanton Viqueens won’t finish first in the Corner Conference volleyball tournament.

    Their streak was snapped Thursday night in Farragut when they fell short for the second time this season to the Fremont-Mills Knights, 3-0, in the Corner Conference championship match.

  • Red Oak cruises to H-10 wins

    COUNCIL BLUFFS — The Red Oak volleyball team remains in second place in the Hawkeye 10 after picking up a pair of conference wins, last week.

    The most recent win came Thursday night in Council Bluffs when they defeated St. Albert 3-1.

    Red Oak (6-1 in conference play) easily won the first game 25-14. St. Albert rallied back, though, and tied the match 1-1 with a 25-21 game two victory.

  • XC Recap: Red Oak boys seventh at Atlantic

     ATLANTIC — The Red Oak boys’ cross country team took seventh out of 24 teams competing at Thursday’s Atlantic Cross Country meet at the Atlantic Golf and Country Club.

    Red Oak recorded a score of 251, edging out Glenwood, Denison-Schleswig and Creston. Griswold finished 24th at the meet.

    Logan LeRette was the top finisher for the boys in the crowded field. LeRette took 21st with a time of 18:38.00.

  • Friday Football: Big match-ups in store for 2A-8

    The final stretch of the regular season begins for Class 2A District 8 football. The playoff race is officially on.

    For the Red Oak Tigers, they face a big test Friday night when they host Southeast Valley. The Tigers look to win their second in a row. Red Oak is fresh off a homecoming win, 35-14, against Treynor.

    At 1-2 in the district, Red Oak sits fifth in the standings. Red Oak is still very much in the playoff hunt at this point.

  • Friday Football: Vikings look to get back on track versus Sidney

    The Stanton Vikings will try to avoid its second straight loss Friday night when they hit the road to take on the Sidney Cowboys.

    The winner of this match-up of the two 3-1 teams will have sole possession of first place. 

    Stanton is fresh off a loss at home last week to Fremont-Mills. The Knights decreased Stanton's chances of winning the district title. A win over Sidney would keep them in second place and in consideration for a home playoff game.

    Sidney has won three straight, including last week against 74-30 against Essex.
