The Spartan men used a 13-0 start over the first five minutes of the game to set the tone against Wartburg College JV on Tuesday night en route to an 87-53 win. The win improved their record to 5-0 on the season. Jaylon Smith led the way with 19 points while big men Mataika Koyamainavure and Simon Joseph combined for 28 points, 15 and 13 respectively. “Jaylon has struggled shooting the past few times out so it was good to see him back in rythym. Both big fellas did some really good things and their stats resemble that,” said coach Todd Lorensen.
The Spartan sports shooting team ended their fall season undefeated as a team. Their latest win came on Saturday, November 8, in the very cold, windy, and snowy conditions at the Warren County Izaak Walton League in Indianola at a conference event Hosted by Simpson College. The Spartans shot a 237/250 to edge out top Iowa Central team.
Ethan Jolliff, Heath Evans, and Brandon Willmert from (Hawkeye CC) tied with a 49/50 in trap, with Jolliff winning the shoot-off by hitting 32 target consecutively. Shelby Woods took the top female honors with a 45/50.

Southwestern Community College Head Volleyball Coach Ting Liu received word late last week freshman Carmen Subbert of Stanton was named first team All-Region XI-B, was an All-Region XI-B tournament selection, and was named second team all-conference.
Subbert, an outside hitter for the Spartans, had an outstanding run during her college volleyball debut, being named as the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference's (ICCAC) offensive athlete of the week three times during the 2014 season.
Jok Kut and Josh Kirk (pictured, #24) had 20 points each to pace the Spartan’s to a 109-64 win over Graceland JV on Wednesday night in Creston. “Both of those guys provided us great energy and made multiple hustle plays which is something our staff loves to see,” said Coach Todd Lorensen.
The Spartan women battled in yet another close game this season against Graceland and unfortunately came up short once again dropping the game 85-82. Several ties and lead changes was the story for both teams at the start but the Spartans were able to string together several defensive stops along with some key offensive possessions to take a nine point lead 48-39 to conclude the first half. Head coach Addae Houston commented, “It took us awhile to find some offense early on but we had a great stretch of both offensive and defensive possessions where we scored points and had stops to close the first half.”
