ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Friday’s Hall of Pride scrimmage was a win-win for Iowa Mennonite as they defeated Holy Trinity 60-49 and brought in a trove of goods to donate to the Kalona Food Pantry.

“We are grateful for the tremendous response we received on behalf of the food pantry. Norma Wright does a great job with the organization and our senior players were very helpful in getting the items to the pantry,” Iowa Mennonite coach Dwight Gingerich said.

The Iowa Mennonite seniors delivered the haul to the Kalona Food Pantry after the event, which had a reduced entry fee if people brought a canned good or the extra money was donated.

In the scrimmage against the cross-division Holy Trinity, Iowa Mennonite jumped out to a 13-3 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. Three Iowa Mennonite players were in double figures on the night with seniors leading the way. Trevor Leyden had 15, Cale Gingerich 12 and Jeremy Niemeyer 11 to cap off the final preseason showing for Iowa Mennonite.

Earlier in the week Iowa Mennonite took on Mid-Prairie in a jamboree scrimmage, which is limited to two quarters of play. A 27-25 win for Iowa Mennonite came as Eli Ours hit a jump shot with seven seconds left.

“It was Eli Ours with the jumper in the lane with seven seconds remaining for the game-winner,” Gingerich said. “Caleb Gingerich followed by poking the ball loose for the steal to secure the win.”

Iowa Mennonite opened their regular season Tuesday with a home game against Lone Tree.
