Comments from Coach Stumpff: Sarah has been a pitcher for quite a bit of her high school career and is another player who will be transitioning to the outfield.  I think Sarah is probably one of the fastest kids I have ever coached and will undoubtedly be an asset on the field.  Being a pitcher for so long, she developed an amazing work ethic which is going to be extremely important at this level.

swcc_vs_indian_hills_IMG_0825

Not many teams beat Division I Indian Hills on their home floor, and Southwestern, despite a good effort, was no exception in a Tuesday 67-52 loss in Ottumwa.  After taking a 25-15 lead, Indian Hills could not put the pesky Spartans away, as Austin Emerson managed to keep Southwestern close going into half, 34-26.  The Spartans fired out of the gate in the second half, and with help from two Luke Sealer baskets, cut the lead to 1 at 38-37.  From there, the margin bounced between six and two points most of the evening.  With three minutes to go and a six-point lead, the Warriors hit an off-balance look with 1 second on the shot clock, forcing the Spartans into a hurry-up mode.  Southwestern misconnected on a three-point attempt and then was forced to foul, leading to the final margin.  Southwestern is 14-12 overall, and next plays a key conference road game in Mason City against North Iowa Area.

High School Honors/Awards: Ashley was an honorable mention 2A all-state and all-district selection as a junior and was a two-time all-conference selection. 
Comments from Coach Stumpff: After playing 3B for the majority of her high school career, she is going to be making the transition from infield to outfield.  Both Coach Monroe and I believe because of her speed and knowledge of the game, the transition will be a smooth process.  Ashley is a player that will be respected in our league.  She has tremendous speed and will be a huge spark for us in the outfield.
