Kirkwood men bump off Iowa Lakes

Ajay Lawton and Myzeah Batie-Gaddy scored 17 points apiece Saturday as Kirkwood defeated Iowa Lakes, 81-65, in a junior college men's basketball game at Johnson Hall.

No.5 Kirkwood softball team ready to go

The Kirkwood softball team won 50 straight games last season and reached the semifinals of the national tournament, but graduation and two early departures have left the Eagles with a vastly different club this year.

The expectations remain as high as ever, however, as the fifth-ranked Eagles get ready to open the 2014 season at the St. Ambrose indoor tournament Saturday.

"I think we're biting at the bit to go," said Coach Joe Yegge.

Yegge knew he'd lose a good chunk of his lineup to graduation, but All-American pitcher Amber Logemann and all-star shortstop Leah Duffe both left Kirkwood after their freshman campaigns to play at a four-year school.




Kirkwood hosting Play 4Kay Game

The Kirkwood women's basketball team will host a Play 4Kay Game this Saturday against Iowa Lakes as part of a national effort to raise money to fight breast cancer.

Tipoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. at Johnson Hall.

The Kirkwood Play 4Kay Game is being held in conjunction with the national Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Half of the gate receipts will be donated to the cause and a raffle will be held as well.

Lassen sparks Kirkwood past NIACC

Matt Lassen got a long, loving embrace from his mother after the Kirkwood Eagles defeated NIACC, 73-58, at Johnson Hall Wednesday night.

He deserved it.

Lassen drilled all four of his 3-pointers - all at clutch times - and finished with 12 points in his best all-around performance this season.

His parents, Susan and Ron Lassen, have watched their son spend a lot of time on the bench as a freshman, but not this time.

Lassen played 15 minutes and gave Kirkwood (15-7, 6-3) the boost it needed to stay in the ICCAC race.




No.3 Eagles nudged by No.2 NIACC

The Kirkwood Eagles and NIACC Trojans have played two hellacious women's basketball games this season, befitting two of the top teams in the country.
