AKRON — Cole Linden turned in five innings of two-hit shutout relief and keyed a four-run second inning with a two-run single to lead Gehlen Catholic to a 5-0 upset of Akron-Westfield in the 1A District finals at Akron Monday night.  The Jays turned to Linden after Colin Budden and Lucas McCarty got the Jays through the first two innings.  Budden retired the first five batters of the game and exited with a 4-0 lead to save pitches for the 1A Sub-State game against No. 4 Remsen St. Mary’s on Tuesday night in Le Mars.  Gehlen took advantage of three errors, two walks and three hits to score four runs in the second inning and added an insurance run an inning later on yet another error.  The Westerners finished with four errors on the night and just two hits on offense, both by Reagan Frankl, as their season ended at 20-and-6.  Gehlen has now won five straight to improve to 12-and-15.  The Jays have gone 11-and-6 since starting 1-and-9 under new coach Greer Milledge.

LE MARS — Sophomore Christian Velasquez threw a complete-game, two-hitter and was backed up by a 14-hit attack as No. 6 Bishop Heelan advanced to the 3A Sub-State with an 11-1, five-inning victory over the Le Mars Bulldogs Monday night in the District finals at the Bulldog Sports Complex.  It took a couple of inning for the Crusaders to get the measure of the Bulldogs but finally broke through with four runs in the third, added two more in the fourth and finished off the Dogs with five in the fifth for their second ‘Ten-Run Rule’ verdict on the tournament trail.  Gabe Eckstaine and Logan Lancaster had the lone hits for Le Mars while Colin Kasperbauer had three hits to pace the Heelan attack.  Cael Boever clubbed a home run for the Crusaders.  Bishop Heelan takes a 30-and-10 record into the Sub-State finals Wednesday in Le Mars against Sergeant Bluff-Luton at 7 pm.  Le Mars closes out the season at 14-and-18.

STATE TOURNAMENT AT HARLAN ROGERS PARK IN FORT DODGE

FORT DODGE — Home runs by MaKenna Kuiper and Rachal Sicard helped power No. 4 AGWSR to a 12-5 win over No. 3 Akron-Westfield Wednesday afternoon in the 1A semifinals at the Girls State Softball Tournament in Fort Dodge.  Kuiper opened the game with a home run off eighth grade pitcher Megan Meinen and that 1-0 lead stood for four innings before the Cougars broke through for four runs in the fifth, two in the sixth and five more in the seventh to seal the outcome.  Sicard’s three-run homer capped the scoring in the seventh.  The Westerners had a glimmer of hope going into the seventh after Lily Kenny had a RBI single and Natalie Nielsen added a two-run hit to cut a 7-1 deficit to 7-4.  But the five-run seventh dashed any comeback hopes of advancing to the Thursday evening championship game.  Winning pitcher Taryan Barrick struck out nine but walked seven while being reached for seven hits.  Barrick also had three RBI singles.  Sicard finished with three hits and four RBI’s as the Cougars roughed up A-W’s two eighth grade pitchers, Natalie Nielsen and Megan Meinen, for 12 hits.  Nielsen and Kiana Appley had two hits each for the Westerners.  Appley also stole five bases.  Akron-Westfield (27-and-5) plays No.9 Lisbon for third place at 5 pm Thursday.  AGWSR meets No. 2 Collins-Maxwell for the State 1A championship at 6 pm Thursday.

STATE TOURNAMENT AT HARLAN ROGERS PARK IN FORT DODGE

FORT DODGE — No. 3 Akron-Westfield wrapped up play at the 2018 State Softball Tournament in Fort Dodge Thursday evening, losing 9-7 in the third place game to No. 9 Lisbon.  After the two teams played scoreless softball for the first three innings, the Lions struck for six runs in the top of the fourth.  The Westerners countered with four runs in their half of the fourth with Courtney Waterbury’s bases-loaded hit to right clearing the bases.  Akron-Westfield drew to with 6-5 on Waterbury’s sacrifice fly in the fifth.  Lisbon extended the gap to 9-6 with three runs in the sixth.  The Westerners scored twice in the bottom of the sixth on RBI’s by Brynn Van Eldik and Danika Smith but a strike out by Waterbury with the bases-loaded ended the threat and the game as the contest was halted after six innings on the time limit.  Akron-Westfield, which went 1-and-2 this week in Fort Dodge for the first time since 2003, finished the season at 27-and-6.  The Westerners landed a pair of seniors on the 1A All-Tournament team — Kiana Appley and Danika Smith.

Tana (Colt) Stewart was honored before the game by being inducted into the softball Hall-of-Fame in Fort Dodge.  Tana is the first Westerner player to be inducted.  She was named to three all-tournament teams in her career and a three-time first-team All-Stater.  In 2006, Tana compiled a .586 batting average and swiped 21 bases while striking out just twice that season.  She holds several Akron-Westfield offensive school records.

#3-North Linn 6, #4-Remsen St. Mary’s (27-4) 3

DES MOINES — Sam Boardman’s bases-loaded triple keyed a five-run fifth inning for No. 3 North Linn Saturday afternoon and the Lynx rallied past No. 4 Remsen St. Mary’s 6-3 in the quarterfinal round of the 1A State Baseball Tournament at Principal Park.  The win avenged a 5-1 loss a year ago to the Hawks in Des Moines.  Back-to-back RBI singles by Derrick Schorg and Blaine Harpenau in the top of the fifth inning had erased a 1-0 deficit and gave St. Mary’s a 2-1 advantage.  Harpenau had limited North Linn to one hit and three base runners in four shutout innings but due to the fact he had pitched in Tuesday’s Sub-State win over Gehlen, he had 55 pitches left for the week.  He reached that plateau after four frames.  David Grady took over in the fifth but lasted just five batters, four of which got hits.  Boardman’s triple ended Grady’s day.  Derrick Schorg pitched the final inning and two-thirds and gave up one more RBI single.  St. Mary’s scored one more run in the sixth when Carter Kuchel tripled off the top of the right-center field wall  and scored on Skylar Waldschmidt’s sacrifice fly.  Ryan Miller and Jake Hilmer combined on a six-hitter with seven strike outs.  Hilmer got the win in relief while Grady took the loss.  St. Mary’s ends the season at 27-and-4 while North Linn improves to 41-and-3.
