GARNER – Garner-Hayfield-Ventura senior Baylee Frayne has been as steady as they come on the golf course over her three seasons with the Cardinals.

Frayne is a three-time state tournament qualifier for GHV. She finished sixth this past spring, and was third as a sophomore.
UNI 72, Wartburg 43
CEDAR FALLS - Northern Iowa senior Bennett Koch posted a career-high 25 points in leading the Panthers to a 72-43 win over the Wartburg Knights in the McLeod Center.
The Panthers took a 21-9 lead with 10:18 left in the first half following a steal and layup by Juwan McCloud. McCloud's bucket capped a 9-0 Panther run. Following the 9-0 spurt, UNI went into a three-point shooting skid that saw the Panthers miss 20 of their next 21 shots from beyond the three-point arc.
Koch scored 20 second-half points and was perfect from the field on the night by draining all eight of his field goal attempts. Koch's second-half surge turned a 37-35 lead for the Panthers with 13:07 left in the game into a 29-point victory. UNI outscored Wartburg 35-8 in the final 11 minutes of the contest.
Freshman guard Tywhon Pickford secured a game-high 13 rebounds, with five of those coming on the offensive end of the floor. Pickford just missed a double-double with nine points.
UNI moved to 2-1 on the year, while Wartburg fell to 0-1 as the Knights opened their season on Wednesday night.
The Panthers will remain at home in the McLeod Center and take on the Chicago State Cougars Saturday at 11 a.m.
