  • Tigers fall short versus Clarinda and CAM

     RED OAK — The Red Oak baseball team continues to struggle getting ballgames in for the season.

    While everyone else in the Hawkeye 10 conference has played at least six games, the Tigers have only played four. Rain outs have been the primary culprit for the Tigers.

    Red Oak (1-3) lost its only home game of the week last Tuesday at Legion Park when Red Oak gave up three runs in the top of the seventh to lose to the Clarinda Cardinals 8-7.

  • SWV gets win over Nodaway Valley

     The Southwest Valley softball team scored its lone win of the week last Tuesday when they beat Nodaway Valley 4-3.

    The Timberwolves jumped out to a 4-0 lead thanks to a four-run third inning. Nodaway Valley came close to tying it in the bottom of the seventh, but fell a run shy.

    Ashtyn Grossnickle had the highlight by going 2-for-3 with a run scored and two stolen bases.

  • Tigers split doubleheader with St. Albert

     RED OAK — The Red Oak softball team scored its third win of the season when they split a varsity doubleheader with the St. Albert Saintes Friday night.

    Red Oak (3-13) won the second game 4-2. The win came after the Tigers lost game one 4-0.

    “I was very pleased. We came out and competed, especially after a tough hard loss in that first game,” Red Oak softball coach Tristin Johnson said. “It definitely was nice to see us re-focus and get the win.”

  • Stanton makes light work of Nishnabotna in softball

     STANTON — It was never very close. The Viqueens scored 20 first run innings to defeat the Nishnabotna Blue Devils 22-1 in three innings last Monday at Anderson Park.

    Stanton scored more than a dozen runs in the first before Nishnabotna could even record the first out.

    Lauren Stephens got the ball rolling early when she hit a two-RBI single that scored Logan Wagg and Heidi Vanderholm.

  • Griswold rebounds with win against CAM

     GRISWOLD — The Griswold softball team got back on track last Tuesday when they defeated CAM 7-1.
