IPSWA remembers Dan Voigt

Dan Voigt, a long-time sports writer and founding member of the Iowa Print Sports Writers Association, died Jan. 17. He was 61.

Dan was an integral part of the formation of the IPSWA, a long-standing participant of the all-state program. However, more importantly, he was a cherished colleague and an individual who devoted his life to his community. In 2017, he was named Emmetsburg Citizen of the Year.

Dan Voigt

Those who knew Dan know that his work with students in the Emmetsburg High School show choir as their sound technician was among his greatest passions.

The IPSWA account will contribute $100 to this cause, per support of our board of directors. If you would like to add to this amount, we will be collecting donations through the end of this week, ending Friday, Jan. 24 at 5 p.m. Any amount we collect will be added to the initial $100 and submitted in Dan’s name to the Emmetsburg High School show choir.

Donations to this cause can be submitted through PayPal at https://www.paypal.me/ipswa and we will pass it on.

Services will be held in Graettinger, Iowa at the United Methodist Church. The visitation is on Wednesday, Jan. 22 from 4-7 p.m. and services are on Thursday, Jan. 23 at 10:30 a.m.

A full obituary, an area to leave memorial messages, further details on services and the ability to send flowers/gifts to the family are online at the Henry Olson’s Funeral Home website.

2019 IPSWA All-State Baseball teams announced

DES MOINES — Members of the Iowa Print Sports Writers Association met Saturday at Principal Park in Des Moines to select the 2019 All-State baseball teams as well as team captains. Chosen were Josh Fitzgerald, of Newman Catholic, in Class 1A; in Class 2A, North Linn’s Jake Hilmer; in Class 3A Central DeWitt’s Garrett Finley; and in Class 4A Johnston’s Peyton Williams. 

Members participating included Jim Gries, Oskaloosa Herald; Jerry Giese, Sergeant Bluff Advocate; K.J. Pilcher, Cedar Rapids Gazette; Troy Banning, Webster City Daily Freeman-Journal; Mark Schafer, Carroll Times-Herald; Lori Wiser-Dyas, The Ocheyedan Press-Melvin News; Greg Grabinowski, Algona Publishing;Matt Coss, Quad-City Times; Zach James, Sioux City Journal; Brian Rathjen, Atlantic News-Telegraph; Colin Peters, Centerville Daily Iowegian; Tyler Hetu, Creston News-Advertiser; Mike Oeffner, Harlan Newspapers; Carter Eckl; Creston News; and Kyle Ocker, Centerville Daily Iowegian.

Coach Aaron Davidson, Pocahontas Area, also participated.

Fitzgerald led Newman Catholic to a 38-3 record and the Class 1A state title in an 11-1, six-inning win over Alburnett. Fitzgerald went 1-2, scoring two runs and driving in a pair with a home run and a pair of sacrifice flies in the finals. During the season he ripped 26 doubles, three triples and 15 home runs, driving in 42 runs. He hit a scorching .568 with an on-base percentage of .616 while slugging at an .838 clip. In 15 mound appearances, he earned a 1-0 record with three saves with an ERA of 1.71

Hilmer added Class 2A captain to his collection of accolades, which also includes Mr. Basketball. He is the first athlete in the state to earn both awards. He and the Lynx, who finished the year at 40-6, fell 6-0 to Van Meter in the title game. He boasts a 15-2 record with one save in 18 pitching appearances. Over 85 ⅓ innings he finished with a microscopic ERA of 0.75.

Finley propelled Central DeWitt to the best season in program history. The catcher and three-year starter led the Sabers to a 38-win campaign and a state runner-up finish in the Class 3A tournament. Finley hit safely in 37 games for Central DeWitt, including 21 contests with two hits or more. Headed to play baseball at Central College in Pella this fall, Finley was second in 3A in runs batted in (53), third in batting average (.498) and among the top 10 in doubles (15). Besides catching a staff that included two all-state players, Finley, the WaMaC East Division player of the year, also was 6-0 on the mound with a 2.01 ERA. Among those victories was a 3-2 decision over Dubuque Wahlert in the substate final to secure the school’s third trip to the state tournament.

No one hit more home runs in the state of Iowa this season than Johnston’s Peyton Williams, the Class 4A captain. The first baseman and Iowa recruit finished the season with a .480 average, 17 doubles, 16 home runs and 57 RBIs in leading the Dragons to a 36-6 record and a state runner-up finish in Class 4A. A four-year starter, Williams was part of four state tournament teams and 140 victories. He finished his career with 27 home runs and 160 RBIs for the Dragons, who spent the majority of this season ranked No. 1. 

First, second and third teams were selected in each class.

2019 IPSWA boys basketball all-state teams announced

DES MOINES — The Iowa Print Sports Writers Association (IPSWA) announced the 2019 boys basketball all-state teams on Tuesday. The teams were selected by print sports writers in Iowa during a meeting on Sunday.

Of 49 votes cast by sports writers and coaches in attendance, there was a tie vote for two Mr. Basketball candidates. Therefore, the Iowa Print Sports Writers Association has named Bettendorf’s D.J. Carton and North Linn’s Jake Hilmer as co-Mr. Basketball.

Carton, an Ohio State signee, averaged 24.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game for Bettendorf. The Bulldogs, ranked No. 1 in Class 4A by the Associated Press at the end of the regular season, finished the year 21-2 with losses to state runner-up Dubuque Senior and fourth place North Scott. He had a career-high 49 points in a regular-season win over Davenport West.

With more than 25 Division I offers, the 6-foot-2 point guard is a five-star prospect and ranks among the top 30 recruits in the country for the 2019 class. He has committed to play in the Iverson Classic this spring. A three-year starter and a first team all-stater the past two seasons by the IPSWA, Carton scored a school-record 1,198 career points along with snagging 372 rebounds and dishing out 257 assists. The Bulldogs played in one state tournament and won 49 games in his three years.

Hilmer capped a brilliant four-year career by helping North Linn to the Class 2A state championship. The Lynx went 102-4 in his career, with a first-place state finish and a second and a third.

Hilmer averaged 26.1 points per game (2nd in Class 2A), shooting 57.8 percent from the field. He led the state with 263 assists. In his career, the 5-foot-11 point guard headed to Upper Iowa University for basketball and baseball, set state records for most single-season assists and steals and career assists and steals. He is the only player in state history to surpass 2,000 career points (2,332) and 1,000 career assists (1,106).

It is the first time since 1999 that two players have shared Mr. Basketball honors. That year, Sioux City West’s Kirk Hinrich and Iowa Falls’ Nick Collison shared the title. Both went on to play for the University of Kansas and later in the NBA.

IPSWA announces 2018 boys basketball all-state teams

DES MOINES — The Iowa Print Sports Writers Association (IPSWA) announced its inaugural boys basketball all-state team on Tuesday. The teams are selected by print sports writers in Iowa, and honor the top-24 high school boys basketball players in each class.

Muscatine senior Joe Wieskamp was selected as Mr. Basketball by print sports writers and coaches. The University of Iowa signee averaged 33.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game as the Muskies reached the Class 4A state tournament for the first time in 16 years.

Wieskamp, who accounted for nearly 60 percent of his team’s scoring, shot 56 percent from the field and almost 85 percent from the free-throw line. He finished his career with an Iowa Class 4A-record 2,376 points, sixth on the all-time scoring list. A consensus top-75 recruit in the 2018 class, Wieskamp tallied double-figure points in 88 of his 91 career games, including the last 62, and registered 46 double-doubles.

IPSWA announces 2018 girls basketball all-state teams

DES MOINES — The Iowa Print Sports Writers Association (IPSWA) announced its first-ever girls basketball all-state team on Tuesday. The teams are selected by print sports writers in Iowa, and honor the top-24 high school girls basketball players in each class.

Iowa City High senior Ashley Joens was selected as Miss Iowa Basketball 2018 by print sports writers and coaches.

A versatile 6-footer and an Iowa State University signee, Joens averaged 30.7 points and 11.4 rebounds per game as the Little Hawks finished 25-1, with a Class 5A runner-up finish at the state tournament. She shot 61.8 percent from the field (including 59.5 percent from 3-point range) and 80.3 percent from the free-throw line.

She concluded her career with 2,178 points, which ranks No. 13 in five-player state history.

To be selected as Miss Basketball, a player must be a senior and must have been selected to first-team all-state in their respective class. After a nomination process, discussion takes place and a vote is taken. The player receiving a majority of the votes is declared Miss Basketball.
