Golf Results for Iowa Central Men's and Women's Spring Invite

The Iowa Lakes Women's and Men's Teams were in action for the season opener at the Iowa Central Invite held at Otter Creek Golf Course in Ankeny, IA.  

The Laker women that competed in the two day event were Tressa DeBoer and Cassie Galm. DeBoer shot a first day total of 100. She followed up with a 96 on the second round. Galm shot a 99 on day 1 and fired a 105 on day two. 

On the Men's Side the Lakers didn't start as well as they hoped struggling on day one shooting a 334 on day one. They were lead by Austin Sweeney with an 80, Harley Snelson shot an 81, Joe Dakken shot an 86 while Jordan Sogard shot an 87. Non counting score was Nathan Kyle with a 91. Blake Orton shot an 84 playing as an individual. On day two the Lakers played a lot better shooting 27 strokes better in shooting a 307. Jordan Sogard led the way shooting a 1 under 70. Austin Sweeney shot a 76, while Blake Orton fired a 79. Joe Dakken shot an 82 to round up the scoring. Non counting score was Nathan Kyle's 87. Harley Snelson had to withdraw from the tournament due to illness. 

"With only a few days being able to be outside the first day was an adjustment round. On the second day we played more to our potential and proud of the way the players fought out there. It was a great preview for the women to be able to see the course where regionals will be early in the year and know where they will need to strengthen their game. The men will have that experience next weekend when we play next. With the forecast for this week should be a great week of preparation and practice. Being able to really work on the games will be something the players are looking for." Said Coach Soper. 

Next Action for the Lakers will be Friday April 11th and 12th when they travel to Lake Panorama to play in the AIB Spring Invite.

Two Iowa Lakes Wrestlers Named All-American

After a great showing at the national tournament, two Iowa Lakes Wrestlers were named All Americans in Div. I NJCAA Wrestling. 

Freddie Rodriguez completed his freshman season as the national champion for 125 pounders and an All American.

"Freddie showed up as prepared and focused as any athlete I've ever coached,” said Head Coach Cody Alesch.  “I knew he was going to have a great weekend and would be in the hunt for a title but to dominate like he did was something you don't see at that level very often.”

Rodriguez finished the season with an overall record of 32-8 on the mat.  This included 13 pin falls, 2 tech fall, and 4 major decisions.

“When a student-athlete is focused like he was it really has little to do with coaching at that point.  I felt like Assistant Coach Matt Mincey and I had a front row seat to his dominance from match one through the finals,” Alesch added.

Brandon Sorenson ended his freshman year finishing fourth place at 174 pounds at the national tournament also earning All American status.

“Brandon, like Freddie, was focused too and wrestled extremely hard all weekend.  He let the semi match slip away some but losing to the eventual champ is never anything to be ashamed of,” Alesch stated when asked about Brandon’s performance.  “He wrestled back hard to claim his first AA honors as a freshman.”

Sorenson finished the season with an overall record of 33-11; 8 pin falls, 1 tech fall and 7 major decisions,

Iowa Lakes had seven national qualifiers and finished twelve at the NJCAA Div. I National Wrestling Tournament.  Freddie Rodriguez- 125lbs, Juan Torres- 133lbs, Tyler Ellwood- 157lbs, Elijah Dennis- 154lbs, Brandon Sorenson- 174lbs, James Connaghan- 184lbs, and Davion Franklin- 285lbs were the Lakers that competed.

“As a team we could have had a better first day but all the guys gained valuable experiences and as long as they build off of that starting today they will surpass their successes of this season,” Coach Alesch said.  “We are excited that all of our qualifiers were freshman and that we have great leadership coming back to build on.”
