Not what they expected

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
FT. DODGE– It wasn’t the finish they were expecting.
The Clear Creek Amana (CCA) Clippers varsity softball team, under the leadership of coach Jim White, defeated Washington 6-2 Friday afternoon at the Class 4A state softball tournament.

Not the Champs, but forever the first

FT. DODGE– They didn’t come away as the Class 5A state champions, but the West High Women of Troy returned to Iowa City as the first softball team from West to make it to the State Tournament.
And you can’t take that distinction away from them.

Trojans heading to state (again)

IOWA CITY– The West High Trojans came back from a 2-0 deficit to win 4-2 over the Rams of Dubuque Senior Wednesday night at home in a nine-inning Class 4A substate final.
It was a pitchers’ duel through four innings as West’s Kellen Yoder and Seniors’ Alex Steines shut-out the other’s batters. The Trojans threatened in the top of the fourth as Reid Bonner made it to third, but ended up stranded along with Declan Doyle (at second).

ReadMobile visits CCA school

OXFORD– Remember the day the bookmobile came to town? The traveling library, usually housed in an old bus or RV, came to provide books in small, rural communities and city suburbs that had no library building.
