North Liberty Leader

More competitive, with room for improvement

IOWA CITY– Kathy Bresnahan always tells it just like it is. With 22 years at Iowa City West and a 558-174 record with the Women of Troy’s volleyball program, she can afford to.
Bresnahan and her squad overcame the death of friend and teammate Caroline Found in 2011 to go on to a 39-6 record and the team’s second consecutive Class 4A state championship. West was a force to be reckoned with. In contrast, the 2012 season ended with a 20-17 record and the chance at a three-peat thwarted by a 3-2 loss to rival City High in the regional final.

By Eric Hawkinson
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY– Learning geography has never tasted so good at the Prime Time Learning Academy in North Liberty. After one student’s suggestion, classes have been constructing maps using sugar cookie dough.
“I think another real beauty of it is that there’s enough freedom, because we don’t have a set curriculum we are responsible for teaching,” said Prime Time owner Julie Robinson. “It’s a win for the kid to see grownups actually took his idea and made it into a lesson that everybody did.”
