Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer

This is the second part of the Hawkeye women’s basketball team wrap up.
I got a chance to talk to Jan Jensen, associate head coach for Iowa, last week and we talked about remodeling Carver, the season and the seniors.
This week we’ll look at the underclassmen, the five new freshmen and the trip overseas.

The junior class consists of Trisha Nesbitt, Morgan Johnson and Jaime Printy.
Trisha only played in 16 games last year and the Iowa bench, which was already short, suffered.
I really thought she took one for the team by not taking a medical redshirt.

Walkin'

I traveled to southern Illinois this past week for a few days of fishing on the Lake of Egypt with my father and brother, Brad.
The trip started in earnest in Rolling Meadows, a suburb of Chicago where my parents have lived the past 60 years. We took the Northwest Line train from Arlington Heights to the Ogilvie Station in the heart of the city.

Food For Thought

Once upon a time, when Sugar Bottom was young, we had the entire place to ourselves. There were great piles of firewood free for the taking. There were no designated camping areas; we could camp wherever we pleased. There were no fire pits; we could build great, roaring bonfires right on the bare ground. There were, also, no restrooms, showers, garbage cans, picnic tables, electricity or safe drinking water.
