MOore play Dana Two HCHS of the Dana this fall. The Moore of Cyclonettes beat Denison - HCHS, T-C win 3-0 volleyball openers Power hitting isn't the only way to win in volleyball. The Harlan Community Cyclonettes proved that Tuesday evening when they opened the 1989 season with a 3-0 victory over Denison. The home team doesn't have any overpowering hitters in their lineup, yet they were able to beat a tradi- tionally strong Lady Monarch team 15-12, 15-6, 15-12. Coach Dan Hill said, "We aren't going to overpower anybody. We can hit the ball hard enough to keep the other team off- balance but we don't have anyone who can stick the ball to the floor consistently. The kids were doing coverage well tonight." As will be the case most of the season, there were no real individual standouts. Instead, the Cyclonettes won with consis- tent contributions from everyone in the lineup. HCHS fell behind 6-0 in the opening game against Denison. The Cyclonettes then scored eight straight to gain an 8-6 advantage. The Lady Monarchs knotted the game at 10-10 but HCHS never trailed after that, winning 15-12. The second contest was more one- sided after HCHS managed to take a lead. Once again Denison had the early advan- tage at 4-1. HCHS tied the game at 4-4 and then outscored Denison 11-2 in the re- mainder of the contest. A 10-3 lead in the final game rapidly vanished as Denison came back to within 12-11. At 13-12, Susie Swanson served the final two points. Bobbi Anastasi's ace spike ended the match in favor of HCHS. Anastasi led the team in offense as she was 21-26 spiking with two aces. The other leaders at the net were Jana Daberkow with 13 of 16 spikes and Marcy Klein at 11 of 14. Serving leaders were Marcy Klein (15- 15) and Chris Ahrenholtz (12-12). Anas- tasi also had four blocks; Janell Daberkow 36 of 39 sets; and Swanson 6 of 7 receiving serves. The junior varsity Cyclonettes beat Denison 13-15, 15-8, 15-12. Sarah Johannsen was 16-18 serving; Michelle Spetman 13-14 spiking (4 aces); and Kellie Buhman 15-18 serving. The frosh beat the Lady Monarchs 15- 12, 15-8, 15-8. Serving leaders were Jill Schulte (13-13) and Jenny Gross (10-10). Michelle Andersen was 5-5 receiving. The HCHS girls hosted Missouri Val- ley last night (Thursday) and open the Hawkeye Eight season with a home match against Glenwood Tuesday. Tri-Center 3, West Harrison 0 MONDAMIN - Tri-Center opened their 1989 campaign with a surprisingly easy 3-0 win over West Harrison Tuesday. The Trojanettes outscored the Hawkettes 15-1, 17-15, 15-0. Coach Mary Conway commented, "I thought we played pretty well. West Harri- son came at us tough in the second game. They had one girl who could serve real well and that hurt us. We did a lot of things right. I didn't think West Harrison was all that bad." Tonya Matthews led the Trojanettes in serving at 14-15 (4 aces). Natalie Hitch- cock was 12-14 (4). Katie Leaders headed the net attack with 18-21 (10 aces) spiking. Sarah Brich was 31-34 setting and 29 of her sets resulted in ace spikes. The T-C girls are off until next Tuesday when they host Western Iowa Conferene foe Treynor. CYCLONETTE VOLLEYBALL - Jana Daberkow spikes (left) and sister, Janeli, receives a serve Tuesday evening. HERE COME THE CYCLONES- The Harlan Community Cyclones take the field tonight (Friday) at Carroll Kuemper. HCHS, Walnut-EH-K look to prove No. 1 ratings - Cyclone is ready for 1989 - Grummert's size is no big setback by Lonnie Guinn Sports Editor Motivation doesn't come tough for Harlan Community's Lance Grum- mert. The senior lineman even enjoys practices because of his passion for the game of football. Grummert is a rarity among ath- letes. His only athletic competition is football. He was out for track and wrestling earlier in his high school caree', but gave them up because he was just 'tired' of them. But he never lost his fascination for football. He attributed part of that to his family, especially his grandfather, Fred Preston of Fairbury, NE. "My grandfather played both ways for the University of Nebraska. He never re- ally talked about it when we were around him, but everyone knew." Preston played for Nebraska i'n the days before platoon football. He was both a defensive and offensive end. Although the Green Bay Packers showed interest, he never got the chance to show his talents in pro foot- ball because World War II summoned him after college. There was a time when Grummert hoped to follow in his grandfather's footsteps and play defensive and/or offensive end. Although he played in the offensive line in junior high, he played everywhere but quarterback his freshman year. As a sophomore he steadily made the move into the defen- sive line - starting as a defensive back, moving up to linebacker and then into the line. He was hoping to get a shot at offensive end this season but things didn't work out. Instead, Grummert will be one of a few players who will see action on both sides of the line of scrimmage. After playing fulltime at nose guard last year, he will add offensive guard to his repertoire. He played nothing but nose last year but the additional duties didn't come as much of a surprise to him. "I expected to play some in the of- fensive line this year," said Grummert. "I thought it would be either guard or end. I'd rather play end. I can't catch the ball but I can block." Grummert was wary of the double duty because he expected the transi- tion from defense to offense would be difficult. It didn't take long for him to get over that feeling. He commented,"I thought it would be tough learning the offensse but it looked tougher than it really was. The biggest difference is that you can't use your hands." A first glance at Grummert might make a few people lake a double take. He doesn't have typical size for a Cyclone lineman. At 5' 10" and only 180 pounds, both stretching the truth a little, he has had to compensate in other ways. Lifting weights and devel- oping a special mental attitude are two ways he makes up for his size. "I have al- ways lifted weights," said Grummert. "I've been stronger than most kids my size. I've always been smaller so I've just gotten used to it. "Mentally, I had trouble at ifirst (playing Lance Grummert football) be- cause of my size. I got beat up a lot but you get used to it. You make up for it other ways." Weighlifting has become a passion for Grummert, too. He expects to compete in a powerlifting meet later this year in Kansas City, MO. Grummert says he sets personal goals before each season. One of the goals he's set is to get 100 tackles his senior season. He had 76 as a junior, fourth best on the team, so the possibil- ity exists for a 100-tackle campaign, especially if the league is as tough as it's expected to be. The starters could get more playing time than usual. As for the upcoming season, Grummert is looking forward to the challenge. "I didn't think we'd be weak anywhere. We've got a lot of people back that played last year. "To me, the tradition (of Cyclone football) is just more pressure. No- body wants to lose because it would break that tradition. It's good in other' ways because it makes people think twice when they play us," he said. The Grummerts moved to Harlan from Norfolk, NE, 10 years ago this summer. Lance is the son of Warren and Sue Grummert of Harlan. Prep football season opens tonight The football season is upon us. After a nine-month layoff, pigskin fanatics can once again head for the high school gridirons to watch their favorite teams in action. It should be an interesting season in the Harlan Newspapers' cover- age area. Two teams are hoping to live up to their No. 1 rating this season - Harlan Community and Walnut-Elk Horn-Kim- ballton - while the other three area squads are hoping for improvement over last year. The first Friday's games involving the five area squads are: Harlan Community at Carroll Kuemper; Carroll at Tri-Center; Irwin-Kirkman-Manilla at Logan-Magno- lia; and Walnut-EH-K vs AvoHa-Shelby- Tennant (at Shelby). HCHS VS KUEMPER Carroll Kuemper has never beaten the Cyclones despite 15 meetings. That doesn't mean that HCHS has always oblit- erated the Knights. Ten of the contests have been decided by two or less touch- downs, including last year's 20-6 HCHS win at Merrill Field. As Kuemper Coach Mark Dalton commented in a phone interview Wednes- day, "The percentages would seem to be in our favor. I looked at the films of the last two games against Harlan and the biggest difference was field position. Harlan didn't have to drive very far for two of their touchdowns last year." The Cyclones have thrived on getting great field position for many years. That's because the defense has been so dominant. It's a tradition that they hope to continue tonight against the Knights. Kuemper returns six starters from their team that went 4-5 last season. Two of the key returnees include fullback Jon Naughton and tackle Kevin Fagan. Naughton is a dangerous runner, espe- cially on punt and kickoff returns, while Fagan is one of the biggest football players in the state. At 6'11" and 320 pounds, he is a formidable foe to move around. "(Fagan) doesn'tlook that bad for a big kid," said Bladt. "He's put on a little more muscle and anyone that big is going to be tough to move." Kuemper's Dalton said of Fagan, "He's been surprising. He's worked hard this summer. He's not real quick but if we can get him to run 10 yards hard, he'll help us out." The Knights have always had a tough schedule because of their independent status. It's no different this year with Emmetsburg, Sioux City Heelan, Denison and Algona Garrigan among their foes. "We never have a breather," said Dalton. "You go into each week knowing that you have a chance to get your butt beat." In other H-8 matchups: Atlantic hosts Spencer; Clarinda hosts Omaha Roncaili; Creston hosts Greenfield; Glenwood hosts Missouri Valley; CB Lewis Central faces CB Thonias Jefferson at CB Stadium; Red Oak hosts Audubon; and Shenandoah hosts Maryville, MO.
