Hawk Talk

Prime Time (PT) basketball started big time in North Liberty last week as a packed house came out to watch five of the six new Hawkeyes play.
The first game had Adam Woodbury and Jarrod Uthoff on one team with Mike Gisell and Kyle Meyer on the other.
Adam, a seven footer, was one of the top recruits in the nation while Jarrod, who played basketball in Cedar Rapids, picked Wisconsin, redshirted last year, is transferring to Iowa and has to sit out a year as a Hawkeye.
Jarrod played in Prime Time after his junior year in high school and liked the experience.

SUTLIFF– A diesel crane lifted a steel column into the air and set it upright in the murky waters of the Cedar River.

District ‘hiring for fit’ at Lakeview, middle school

Tony Nicol will fill the position at the middle school and Lori Grimoskas will start at Lakeview in 2012-2013.
