Women of Troy a step closer to the big dance

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– The West High Women of Troy swept the Rough Riders of Des Moines Roosevelt 3-0 Thursday night (Oct. 27) in a Class 4A regional semifinal match on their home court.
West took the night 26-24, 25-17 and 25-15.

West pounds Wahlert

IOWA CITY– Some call it “the second season.” Officially, it is “the Football Postseason Tournament.” Call it what you will, the bottom line is the same.
It’s do or die time.
Brian Sauser’s West High Trojans survived Wednesday night’s (Oct. 26) first round encounter with Dubuque Wahlert at home, picking up the team’s first postseason win in several years, 66-32.
The Trojans took the kickoff from Wahlert and scored on a Charles Rogers 44 yard keeper with 8:40 left in the first quarter. Alex Troester’s point-after-touchdown (PAT) kick was good, and West had the early 7-0 lead.

Lake Macbride undergoes minor construction

Construction equipment sits where the Lake Macbride Boat Rental and concession building used to be. To avoid future flooding, the building is being moved up the hill, closer to the beach lodge in the park. In the meantime, soil stabilization structures are being established on the slope to minimize sediment running into the shallow bay.  On the south side of the park, a sediment pond is being constructed south and west of the causeway; again to reduce runoff into the lake.

A few more gathered in His name

NORTH LIBERTY– They gathered in an early morning mist, heads bowed, hand-in-hand.
They also laughed really loudly, scooped up sugared donuts and jostled each other like the boisterous teenagers they were.
And together, they prayed.
It’s not uncommon for Heritage Christian School (HCS) students to gather in prayer; it’s part of the school routine. It is less common to see students in a public school setting engaging in prayer, though that’s what happened before school on Sept. 28.
