Prior to coming to Tiffin, she served as the assistant to the city manager in West Liberty, worked for the City of Moline, Ill., and assumed roles in various other levels of government over two decades.

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
TIFFIN— It was a blowout and soccer clinic rolled into one last Monday, May 21, as the Washington Demons visited Clear Creek Amana (CCA). The Demons came into the first round of the substate tournament winless, while the Clippers had 10 wins under their belts.
The mis-match was quickly apparent.

Lions’ lament

CORALVILLE— Iowa City West coach Brad Stiles found himself wondering at times if the Linn Mar goalkeeper had magnets or something else in his gloves. The keeper managed to grab almost every Trojan ball that made it into his box.
“We just couldn’t find the back of the net” Stiles said.
Fortunately, senior Alex Troester did. Twice. Troester’s goals (one in the first half, the other in the second) gave the Trojans a 2-0 win and set them up for a Saturday, May 26, Class 4A final round match at home against Cedar Rapids Kennedy.
