GPAC Basketball from Wednesday, February 8th

A fantastic 2nd half effort from the Dordt College women came up just short as the Defenders dropped a 54-50 GPAC contest to Dakota Wesleyan Wednesday evening at the Corn Palace in Mitchell, South Dakota. A 23-4 run by Dordt turned a 19 point Tiger lead (46-27) in to a 50-50 ball game on a Brianna Spronk layup with 1:51 left but the Defenders couldn’t get another basket down the stretch in the GPAC contest. Dordt College falls to 10-16 on the season and 5-13 in the conference while the Tigers improve to 14-12 overall and 6-11 in the GPAC. With the win, Dakota Wesleyan moves in front of Dordt College for the 8th and final spot in the GPAC tournament and also enjoy the tiebreaker on the Defenders.

The 7th-ranked Northwestern Red Raider women extended their GPAC Conference record to 13-4, courtesy of a 61-52 win over unranked Mount Marty last night. The Raiders are now 14-3 in the conference and 19-6 overall. With the loss, Mount Marty drops to 15-11 overall, and 9-8 in the GPAC.

In Men’s GPAC action, the Dordt College men made a dramatic comeback last night in Mitchell, outscoring the Dakota Wesleyan Tigers 12-1 over the last 4 and a half minutes to turn a 57-49 deficit into a 61-58 GPAC victory to pick up their 24th win of the season. The win is Dordt’s first in the Corn Palace in 9 years as they improve to 24-3 overall and 15-3 in the GPAC while the Tigers drop to 14-13 on the season and 6-11 in conference play.

Meanwhile, 15 Northwestern enjoyed a 21 point victory over Mount Marty, 87-66. With the win, the Raiders extend their GPAC record to 12-5, with an overall season record of 19-6. Mount Marty falls to 6-11 in the conference, and 10-15 overall.

Study Tracks Walleye Population at Iowa Great Lakes

For the past 21 years, every walleye caught during the April gillnetting season at the Iowa Great Lakes received a unique alpha numeric tag, gave up a spine and was measured before heading back to the cool water from which they came.
That information has been feeding a database now stretching 24,000 walleyes strong and is being used to keep track of the health of one of the most important populations used for Iowas fish culture program.
