With no local sports on the calendar last night, we begin today’s report with a look at what is on our area sports scheduled tonight. The Turkey Valley Trojan volleyball team will be in Rockford tonight for a non-conference quadrangular meet. The Trojans will face the Warriors, Belmond-Klemme and Valley Lutheran of Cedar Falls. Turkey Valley comes in with an overall record of 6-20, Rockford is 6-13 this season, Belmond-Klemme is 1-22 and Valley is 3-10. First serve of the first match will be at 5:30.
The South Winneshiek Warrior volleyball team will be in an Upper Iowa Conference match tonight at Kee High. The Warriors are 15-13 overall this season and come in with a conference record of 7-0 while Kee High is 16-11 and 5-3. First serve is scheduled for 7pm.
There are a pair of new top ranked teams in the latest Radio Iowa High School Football Poll. Todd Kimm reports.
Now on to some college football, Kyle Kempt is expected to start at quarterback when the Iowa State football team hosts Kansas on Saturday. The fifth year senior led the Cyclones to a stunning 38-31 win at third ranked Oklahoma. The depth chart lists Kempt or Jacob Park as the starter but Park remains inactive while he deals with a personal health issue.
That’s ISU coach Matt Campbell who says he can’t speculate on when Park might return.
Kempt completed 18 of his 24 attempts through the air for 343 yards in his first start for the Cyclones.
Campbell says Kempt’s with ethic gave the coacbes confidence in his ability.
Campbell says the key this week is to turn the page and focus on Kansas.
Campbell says they will try to continue to use Joel Lanning on both sides of the ball but plan to do it in a way that does not harm the defense or wear Lanning down.
