Hawk Talk

Matt Gatens and the Iowa Hawkeyes finally got the monkey off their back.
Matt had not beaten Illinois in six straight tries.
The Fighting Illini had beaten the Hawks eight straight times.
Last Thursday, at the Big Ten Tournament, that finally came to an end.
Iowa, still riding on Matt Gatens’ shoulders, came from behind, held off Illinois and Matt hit two free throws with 10 seconds left and the Hawks won, 64-61.
It always amazes me that two teams could play two games in less than 12 days and have such different results.
Iowa lost to the Fighting Illini on Feb. 26 at Champagne, 65-54.

Emily Wears wins Colorado’s auctioneer championship

DENVER, Colo.— History was made in January as Solon native Emily Wears became the first woman to be named the Colorado Auctioneers Association Bid Calling Champion.
Wears, the daughter of Brent and Donna of Solon, earned her championship at the 54th annual convention of the Colorado Auctioneers Association (CAA).
Growing up in the auction business– Brent has owned Wears Auctioneering for 30 years– made an early impression on Emily, as she started working auctions at the age of 10, handling clerking duties.
