N-K junior Jasmine Renteria heads to first with a single last Monday night in Allison. Renteria has three of the team’s 15 hits this season and is now second on the team with a .273 batting average, a full .112 points above the team average of just .161 on the year.
In the many discussions I’ve had this summer about the Northwood-Kensett softball team and the struggles of this young squad, one thing always stands out, despite the lopsided losses and the roster dwindling down to numbers that caused the cancellation of the rest of the JV schedule, hanging up...
With his team clinging to a slim 2-1 lead last Friday night in Sheffield, N-K second baseman Breyden Hoeppner leaps to make a play on a line drive. The talented freshman also picked up the win for the JV squad after taking the hill for the first time in his young career.
In search of more pitching, fielding and hits, the Northwood-Kensett baseball team, which has been outscored this year 116-26, is finally starting to put its game together after a tough 0-11 start to the season.

Freshman shortstop Evan Lorenzen makes an over the shoulder catch in last Tuesday night’s 11-1 loss in Garner. Lorenzen has been one of the bright spots for the Vikings this season, along with his solid glove he’s batting .211 with an on base percentage of .375.
Just looking at a team’s record, especially this early in the season, doesn’t tell the whole story of just how good a team might become. That’s the case with this year’s Northwood-Kensett baseball team that this season is in the steady hands of first year head coach Brian Faunsnaugh. With the loss...
Freshman shortstop Topanga Hackenmiller pulls in an infield fly in last Friday night’s 15-0 loss in Osage. Hackenmiller has a very respectable .667 fielding percentage through seven games of the season.
When you’re 0-7 and have been outscored in those seven games 139-2, not making it past the third inning in any game this season, it’s hard to go out and take the field every day, but that’s exactly what this brave group of Lady Vikings are doing night in and night out, and despite the lopsided...
Senior ace Jace Gentz lets loose a fastball in the Vikings’ opening night loss to North Butler. Gentz, despite the loss, has a fine night, working five innings with eight Ks and a very respectable WHIP (walks and hits per inning pitched) of just 1.60.
Like the Lady Vikings this season, the Northwood-Kensett baseball team is under new management and is, for the most part, inexperienced after losing its coach and seven seniors from last year’s team that went 14-15. But new head coach Brian Faunsnaugh, who has some past connections to the Newman...
N-K rookie Kelsi Liddle strokes the first base hit of the season for not only herself, but the team as a whole in the Lady Vikings’ 16-0 loss last Tuesday night in Rockford. Liddle and Hadley Buenzow share the team lead in hits so far this season with two apiece.
