Girls Basketball Class 1A Preview

It’s hard to believe, but the high school basketball season kicks off in less than a week.  The Colo-Nesco girls face West Marshall on Friday, November 22 in State Center to begin their quest for a return visit to the state tournaments.  The Royals return most of their roster from last year’s 23 win team.  I haven’t seen any preseason rankings yet, but here is how I think they may shake out based on last season’s records and key returning players:
1.       Newell-Fonda   24-3      4 starters return        Renee Maneman 17.4
Last year’s State Runner Up is the overwhelming favorite, returning one of the top players in the state in Renee Maneman, their best post player in Claudia Larsen, and three other girls that combined to make 96 three pointers last season.
2.       Burlington, Notre Dame  22-4    3 starters return    Taylor Hickey 12.3
A deadly three-point shooting team, the Nikes return three players that combined for 136 three-pointers during last year’s state tournament run.  The Nikes defeated Colo-Nesco in the first round of the state tourney.
3.       Belle-Plaine  15-7         2 starters return         Kameo Pope 19.3
Kameo Pope is one of the best returning players in Class 1a.  Last year, the six-footer averaged 19.3 points, 12.9 rebounds, and 6.4 blocks per game.  The outside shooting presence of Victoria Gritton (49 three-pointers last year) gives Belle Plaine one of the best inside-out duos in Class 1a.
4.       Murray   16-6             5 starters return             Kate Patton 17.3
Murray defeated its opponents by an average of 14 points per game last year and returns all five starters. 
5.       Colo-Nesco   23-3       4 starters return             Caitlyn Riese 11.2
The Royals return 4 starters from one of the top defensive teams in Class 1a, led by the quick hands of Shayla Dean who finished #2 in the state in steals a year ago.  The Royals boast one of the best and most experienced post tandems in Class 1a with Caitlyn Riese (6-1) and Madison Farren (5-9).
      6.       Janesville   19-4           5 starters return           Anna Backstrom 10.2
Janesville returns its top 8 scorers and every player but one from last year’s 19 win team.  Two of their four losses last season were by a combined total of 7 points.  Sylvia Amlie provides a solid inside presence, averaging 13 rebounds per game, while Victoria Leyh led the team with 113 steals last season.  The girls are fresh off the school’s first-ever state volleyball championship, so the athletic talent is clearly there. 
      7.       Harris Lake Park     14-7         4 starters return       Noreen Morrow 15.2
HLP returns every player but one from last year’s roster, led by Noreen Morrow, the 6-1 senior.
8.       North Iowa      17-6             3 starters return      Paige Hassebroek 14.9
North Iowa won its games by an average of 10 points per game last season, led by Hassebroeks near double-double average in points and rebounds.
     9.       Ar-We-Va          21-4          1 starter returns               Paige Danner 18.1
Ar-We-Va loses four of five starters, but the lone returnee, Danner, is one of the best players in Class 1a.
10.    Central Lyon   26-2           2 starters return               Sarah Halse 8.2
The defending state champions from last season lost its three best players, but return the entire rest of its team in defense of its state title.  
 7 OTHERS TO WATCH:                         
11.   Freemont-Mills          17-7          3 starters return   Macy Williams 16.4
12.   Exira EHK                    18-6           3 starters return     Rachel Smith 15.3
13.   Keota                           15-9           4 starters return      Kelsi Sieren 10.9
14.   Lynnville Sully             15-8           5 starters return     Cassie Cullen 9.6
15.   Stanton                       16-6            2 starters return      Carmen Subbert 15.5
16.   Adair-Casey                21-2            2 starters return      London Vais 17.3
17.   Kingsley-Pierson       15-8             3 starters return     Marina Keck15.7

Royal Pride; Season Ends At State Tourney

By Andrew Gogerty

This past Friday, I ran into a star player from the 2012 Colo-Nesco girls’ basketball team who graduated last May.  After some small-talk about what she was studying at Iowa State and about the upcoming state tournaments, she told me five words about the 2013 Royals that have stuck in my head all week:

“I’m so proud of them.”

That “star player” from last year was Jessica Johnson, and she said those words to me as sincerely as anyone could have said them.  After the final horn sounded today at Wells Fargo Arena, and the scoreboard read 60-43 in favor of Burlington Notre-Dame, those were the words that kept coming to my mind as well.

“I’m so proud of them.”

Colo-Nesco’s season came to an end today, but what a season it was.  The Royals finished 23-3, bowing out to an extremely talented squad from Burlington.  When I began doing research for my Girls State Tournament Preview, I knew they were either a) really good or b) that they had played inferior competition.  After all, there are very few men’s collegiate teams that put up 90 points four times in one season, let alone a high school girls’ team, which is exactly what this potent bunch from Burlington Notre-Dame had done.  Turns out, this team and this offense (and its defense) were the real deal.  By halftime, they had already scored more points than the Royals usually give up for an entire game.

In the end, it was a 10-0 run at the end of the first half that ultimately did in the Royals.  Colo-Nesco kept it close for most of the first half, trailing by just four points late into the second quarter.  Then the Royals saw why the Nike’s are the top-scoring team in Class 1a as they went on their late scoring spurt to close out the quarter, taking a 37-23 lead into the locker room.

The shots just wouldn’t fall for the Royals for much of the afternoon.  Every time it looked like Colo-Nesco could go on a run, the Nike’s would answer with a three-pointer or a steal and a lay-up.  They will be a serious contender for the state title and, unfortunately, many of their star players will be back next season.

Speaking of next season, the Royals also have plenty to look forward to.  The Royals return all but two players, including four of five starters.  Shayla Dean, Caitlyn Riese, Shelby Anthony, and Madison Farren return as starters, and will give Colo-Nesco another solid chance at making the state tournaments, along with a talented bunch of reserves from this season.  I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see the Royals ranked in the top 10 for most of next year.

For three seniors, today was the last time they will ever put on a Colo-Nesco basketball jersey.  I think we lost to a better team today, so for me, that was the hardest part--watching the three seniors (Madison Eley, Ashlyn Eley, and Haley Stoeffler) in their final moments.  I’ve enjoyed watching the Eley family play high school basketball ever since I was 9 years old, from Dwight’s days as a Nesco Royal, to their 3 kids who each had magnificent careers, ending with Madison’s appearance in the state tournament today.  And Haley Stoeffler was as valuable to this team as anyone down the stretch of this season.  Her outside shooting will be sorely missed next year.  She was the leading scorer in today’s game, her final as a Royal. 

It’s always sad when an exciting chapter of life comes to an end.  This girls team provided a year of amazing moments for their families and fans and for themselves.  Those memories can never be taken away and neither can the results of one of the finest seasons in Colo-Nesco basketball history.  I really enjoyed watching this team play and I can’t wait for next season to start.  I loved this team’s intensity, desire, heart, and character.   

As the sun sets on this day, and another season of Royals basketball, I think all Royals fans would join me in saying:

“We’re so proud of you.”

Girls State Tournament Preview

Girls State Tournament Preview, Class 1a

By Andrew Gogerty

One of these 8 schools will win their first-ever state championship.  Ar-We-Va finished as the state runner-up in 2011, while Newell-Fonda was state runner-up in 1997, 2000, and 2008.  Colo-Nesco was state runner-up in 1991 and 2002.  Two schools (Burlington-Notre Dame and Central Lyon) are making their first-ever appearance in the girls state tournaments.  Newell Fonda has the most appearances at state with 9, followed by Colo-Nesco with 7. 

Here's a short capsule of my 5 favorites to win it all:

Central Lyon is the state’s top-ranked team, led by Class 1a’s best player, Lexi Ackerman, a 5’10 point guard who leads the state in assists.  Lexi’s twin sister, Kelsey, the team’s third-leading scorer, tore her ACL during regionals.
Newell-Fonda is the #2 team in the state and has the only returning Des Moines Register All-State selection from Class 1a from last season (Renee Maneman). 

Ar-We-Va, the #4 team in the state, has five players that all average close to 10 points per game or better, led by Paige Danner, who averages over 18 points per game.

Burlington-Notre Dame is the #5 team in the state.  The Nikes average over 72 points per game, boast the tournament’s leading three-point shooter, and are #2 in the state in steals behind Colo-Nesco.

Colo-Nesco is the #7 team in the state and has defeated the most ranked opponents of any team in the Class 1a field.  They boast the tournament’s top-ranked defense, can score inside and out, and can also create points off of turnovers.  They are the only team in Class 1a to rank in the top 10 in both offensive and defensive scoring averages.

Players to Watch:

--Amanda Focht, Villisca, 5’10 Senior (14 points; 11 rebounds per game)

--Jill Vanderhoof, Villisca, 5’9 Senior (13 points; 8 rebounds; 3 assists; 4 steals per game)
--Morgan Myers, Burlington-Notre Dame, 5’8 Senior (15 points; 4 steals per game)

--Taylor Hickey, Burlington-Notre Dame, 5’6 Sophomore (12 points; 8 assists; 5 steals per game)

--Lexi Ackerman, Central Lyon,5’10 Senior (16 points; 4 rebounds; 8 assists; 5 steals per game)


--Renee Maneman, Newell-Fonda, 5’5 Junior (17 points; 5 rebounds; 6 assists; 4 steals per game)

--Madison Eley, Colo-Nesco, 5’10 Senior (13 points; 6 rebounds; 3 assists; 3 steals per game)

--Caitlyn Riese, Colo-Nesco, 6’1 Junior (11 points; 6 rebounds per game)

--Shayla Dean, Colo-Nesco, 5’2 Sophomore (8 points; 4 assists; 6 steals per game)

--Paige Danner, Ar-We-Va, 5’7 Junior (18 points; 3 steals per game)

--Brittany Stoelk, Ar-We-Va, 5’8 Senior (11 points; 4 rebounds per game)

                *Overview:  Villisca upset Bedford, the #3 team in Class 1a to get to the state tournament.  Bedford had beaten Villisca by 19 points earlier in the season.  This is Villisca’s first state tournament since 1968.

                *Weaknesses: Haven’t beaten many high-quality teams other than Gehlen Catholic in substate.

Colo-Nesco (23-2); Ranked #7; State Tournament Appearances: 7

                *Overview:  The Royals defensive average of 33.75 points per game ranks #2 in the state in Class 1a.  The contest with Burlington-Notre Dame will be a classic matchup of the state’s #1 offense versus one of the state’s top ranked defenses.  The Royals rank in the top 10 in Class 1a in both offensive scoring average and defensive scoring average (the only team in the Class 1a state tournament field to rank in top 10 in both).  According to BCMoore Rankings, the Royals are actually the third-best team remaining in Class 1a, behind Central Lyon and Newell Fonda.  The Class 1a record for steals in a state tournament game (9), could be eclipsed by Shayla Dean, who ranks #2 in the state in steals (all classes).

*Key Wins: West Marshall (Class 2a #8 team); Meskwaki (twice; Class 1a #9 team); Janesville (Class 1a #10 team); Clarksville (Class 1a #15 team); Pella Christian (Class 2a state qualifier)

                *Strengths:  Scoring balance; Defense.  The Royals are #1 in the state in steals, #4 in the state in assists, and #4 in the state in average margin of victory

                *Weaknesses:  Turnovers.

Burlington-Notre Dame (21-3); Ranked #5; State Tournament Appearances: 1

                *Overview: Nicknamed the “Nikes,” Burlington-Notre Dame enters the tournament as the #1 scoring team in Class 1a, averaging 72.7 points per game.  This is the first-ever tournament appearance for the school.  The Nikes have scored 80 or more points NINE times this season with a season-high 92 points against Cardinal of Eldon. They are defeating teams by an average of 31.7 points per game; #1 in Class 1a.

                *Key Wins: @ Central Lee (#8 team Class 3a);

                *Losses: 69-34 at Davenport Assumption (the #1 team in Class 3a); 74-69 against Central Lee, Donnellson (the #8 team in Class 3a); 74-40 against Mediapolis (the #6 team in Class 3a).

                *Starters: Alex Yacko, Sr. 5’10 (9.4 ppg; 5 rpg); Kori Mesecher, So. 5’8 (7.0 ppg; 7.4 rpg); Morgan Myers, Sr. 5’8 (15.0 ppg; 4.4 spg); G—Taylor Hickey, So. 5’6 (12.5 ppg; 8 apg; 5.3 spg); G--Courtney Coffin, So. 5’5 (11.1 ppg) 

                *Strengths:  The Nikes shoot over 70 percent from the free throw line.  Courtney Coffin, a 94% free throw shooter, has made 65 three-pointers this season.  B-ND doesn’t turn the ball over much either, and has the second most steals in the state (485) behind Colo-Nesco (492).

                *Weaknesses: With three starters that are sophomores, could the Nikes get rattled with the type of defense the Royals play?  Outside of the three losses to 3a schools, their competition hasn’t been the greatest, although they did beat one of those 3a schools that are currently ranked in the top 10.  They’ve also never been to the state tournament before, which could rattle a young team.

Earlham (16-9); Unranked; State Tournament Appearances: 2

                *Overview: Upset #8 Adair-Casey in regionals.  This is Earlham’s first state tournament appearance since 1981.

*Key Wins: #8 Adair-Casey; Twin Cedars

                *Losses: 41-39 vs Osceola; 58-55 vs DM Christian; 53-44 @ Woodward Granger; 45-44 @ Van Meter; 65-36 @ Panorama (#7 Class 2a); 51-48 @ DM Christian; 68-42 vs Woodward Granger; 44-43 vs Van Meter; 81-41 vs Panorama

                *Starters: Kristen Weber, So. 5’4 (10.7 ppg; 4.4 apg; 3.6 spg); Morgan Johnson, Jr. 5’8 (13.8 ppg; 6.8 rpg); Bri Arnburg, Sr. 5’6 (5.2 ppg); Addie Herman, Jr. 5’8 (4.6ppg; 3.8 rpg); Abbey Murphy, Jr. 5’9(9.8 ppg; 9.8 rpg)

                *Strengths: Top rebounding team in Class 1a.

                *Weaknesses:   A lot of losses, not a good shooting team, and turns the ball over a lot.

Central Lyon (23-2); Ranked #1; State Tournament Appearances: 1

                *Overview:  This will be the first state tournament appearance ever for Central Lyon.  The Lions trailed by six at halftime of their substate game, but went on a 20-0 run in the third quarter to beat West Sioux. The Lions suffered a huge blow when senior Kelsey Ackerman (10 ppg) tore her ACL during the regionals.  She is the twin sister of Central Lyon’s best player, Lexi Ackerman, a 5’10 point guard, who is one of the best players in Class 1a, if not the best. She leads the state in assists.  The Lions hale from a hotbed of traditionally great high school basketball teams in the northwest corner of Iowa.  Their only losses of the year were to MOC Floyd Valley, the #2 team in Class 3a. 

                *Key Wins: Sioux Center

                *Losses: 58-45 vs MOC Floyd Valley (#2 team Class 3a); 53-49 @ MOC Floyd Valley

                *Starters: Lexi Ackerman, Sr. 5’10 (16.7 ppg; 4.8 rpg; 8.6 apg; 5.2 spg); Kori Schulte, Sr. 5’9 (13.8 ppg; 6.0 rpg); Wynter Roths, Jr. 5’8 (4.5 ppg); Sarah Halse, So. 5’8 (8.2 ppg; 5.6 rpg; 2.8 spg); Ivy Sieperda, So. 5’7 (3.1 ppg)

                *Strengths: Central Lyon is #1 in Class 1a in assists, #5 in steals, #3 in scoring.  According to, Central Lyon played the #2 most difficult schedule in Class 1a this season.

                *Weaknesses: Not a good three point shooting team, and they do turn the ball over quite a bit.  How much will the loss of Kelsey Ackerman affect them?
