Turkey Valley
Summer Sports Summary

Girls Softball

Boys Baseball
Girls Softball

It is not often you can take great pride in a 13-22 season, especially at a school rich
in tradition in the game of softball like
Turkey Valley.  However, the 2018 Trojan
softball team increased the win total by over 600% from the 2 victories posted by the
2017 team.  

A highlight of the season has to be a first round victory in the regional tournament
over Gilbertville Don Bosco at Gilbertville, 5-3.  The Trojan's season would end the
next night in round 2 at the hands of Brooklyn, BGM, 10-3.

Senior Emily Busta who suffered often during her high school career in basketball
and softball at the hands of injuries, ended her outstanding career in excellent
fashion with a .400 batting average and an amazing 10 home runs, which may be a
school record.

3 others all under class men also hit over .300;  
Junior Shayla Kuennen .377 with 3
home runs and sophomores
Jordan Lukes (.357) and Jaedyn Winter (.354).

2018 looks to be going down as a turn around season for the TV Diamond Girls since
they started as many 8th graders as seniors in its final game, 3 from each class.

Boys Baseball

At this writing, the Turkey Valley boys baseball team remains in the tournament after
an opening game win over Edgewood-Colesburg, 4-1.

Senior Cale Reicks went the distance on the hill scattering 3 hits.

Keegan Balk with a double among his 2 hits along with 2 hits off the bat of Mason
Goerend led the offensive attack.

The Trojans were scheduled to play arch rival South Winneshiek on Thursday night.  
The Warriors beat Postville, 15-0 in the first round to run its season  record to 24-7.  
The Warriors also won 4 of 5 regular season meetings against the 13-18 Trojans.
Crestwood
Summer Sports Summary

Girls Softball

After posting an undefeated state championship season last winter in basketball,
The
Crestwood girls had to settle for ending its season one game away from a
another trip to the state tournament when it fell to Waterloo Columbus, 5-1 in the 3-A
regional final in Waterloo.  It was the 23rd consecutive victory for Columbus on its
way to the state tournament and the game against the Cadets was one of its
toughest victories during the streak.

Crestwood won its first 2 tournament games over Union of La Porte City, 5-2 and
arch-rival New Hampton. 2-1 with both games being played in the friendly confines of
the Crestwood home field.

Sophomore
Laken Lienhard continued to shine on both the pitching rubber and the
batter's box as she had all season.

Against Union she scattered 3 hits and went the distance for the win.  She went the
distance again in the win over The Chickasaws giving up only 4 hits, while going 2
for 2 at the plate.

For the season, Lienhard started 32 of the teams 34 games, winning 22 games
against just 9 losses.  She also led the team in hitting with a .396 average, while
cracking 8 home runs.

Other Cadet .300 hitters included,
Shannon Pisney (.394) and Ashley Voves (.315).

The
Cadets finished the season, 24-10.
