WAVERLY - Megan Hayes scored 21 points and Hannah Breitbach added 17 to lead Coe to a 74-70 win over Wartburg in an Iowa Conference women's basketball game Saturday at Levick Arena.

Coe (7-8, 2-2) scored the first six points of the game and built a 16-point lead in the first half.

Wartburg (7-8, 1-3) whittled the Kohawks' lead to 37-31 by halftime. The Knights hed their only lead of the game, 54-52, on Kailey Kladivo's layup with 10:27 left in the game.

Coe regained the lead, 55-54, on Hayes' three-point play with 9:57 to play. The Kohawks never trailed for the remainder of the game, but they couldn't shake the Knights.




Coe's rally falls short at Wartburg

WAVERLY - A furious rally by the Coe men's basketball team fell short Saturday and the Kohawks lost to Wartburg, 71-65, in an Iowa Conference game at Levick Arena in Waverly.

The Kohawks chopped an 18-point deficit to just three points at 68-65 on a layup by Andrew Wirth with 1:26 remaining, but the rally ended there and Coe did not score again.

Wirth scored 20 points for the Kohawks (9-6, 1-3).

Taylor Jacobsmeier, Jordan Cannon and Clay Cook scored 14 points apiece for Wartburg (8-7, 2-2).




Ball helps Coe matmen stick Augustana

As the lights changed at Eby Fieldhouse for the final home wrestling meet of the season, Coe College senior Ethan Ball walked onto the mats as one of six senior wrestlers being recognized. But his upcoming graduation and senior status aren’t the only accomplishments for which Ball’s been praised.

Last weekend Ball won his 100th match, becoming only the 10th Coe wrestler to achieve that milestone.

“It wasn’t something that I really thought about at all,” he said. “I didn’t know until somebody said I was at 99.”




Kohawks ready for indoor track season

Aaron Carley had a good workout Wednesday afternoon and is looking forward to the start of the indoor track season this Saturday at the Sol Butler Invitational in Dubuque.

You get the impression that Carley, 32, would love to compete in the long jump, triple jump and sprints like he did as an All-American at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point 10 years ago, but he's equally excited now as the head coach at Coe.

Carley has young teams as he begins his second season with the Kohawks, but he thinks there's good potential as he builds the program.
