It was a great weekend to be a Hawkeye fan

It was a pretty good weekend for Hawkeye fans.

Wrestling

On Friday, the Iowa wrestlers had three wins and went 29-1 in individual matches including 24 pins. That’s the first time in program history Iowa scored 50-plus points in three consecutive duals.
“It all starts with Clark and Ramos and goes through the rest of the lineup,” said head coach Tom Brands.
Cory Clark is a 125-pound redshirt freshman and he is fun to watch.
Tony Ramos is the top-rated wrestler at 133 pounds. Both had three pins.

Spartans on track for continued success

Solon looks to extend district title streak

SOLON– They’ve won 83 percent of their games over the last 10 seasons, are the reigning district champs, and have been for nine years running. And coach Brad Randall thinks the Solon Spartans varsity boy’s basketball team can do it again.

Rebuilding

Lady Spartans short on basketball experience

SOLON– Tony Nicol isn’t totally starting from scratch as he prepares the Lady Spartans for the 2013-2014 girl’s varsity basketball campaign, but he’s got a lot of work to do.
The Spartans finished 11-12 last season, good for third place in the WaMaC conference. That team featured six seniors: Kristen Purdy, Rachel Purdy, Kara Misel, Karly Kramer, Brittney Stinocher and Emma Rickels. In the wake of their graduations, Nicol finds himself with three returning starters.

New roles, new players for Women of Troy

West girls face tough MVC competition

North Liberty Leader

IOWA CITY– B. J. Mayer is mixing things up at West High. In his seventh year at the helm of the Women of Troy varsity basketball program, Mayer is moving players around and bringing in some newcomers for the 2013-2014 season.

Will Trojans see a three-peat?

West High boys’ hoops reloads for 2013-2014

North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– The West High Trojans have won the Class 4A state championship two years in a row (2012 and 2013), and had a perfect 26-0 season (16-0 MVC). But can they threaten for a coveted “three-peat?”
The team, coached by Steve Bergman, took a heavy hit back in May as Jeremy Morgan, Myzeah Batie-Gaddy, Austin Swank, Jason Stewart, Mark Lowe, Justin Fleming and Drew Haas graduated.

CCA girls set a course for success

North Liberty Leader
TIFFIN– Matt Haas took the helm of the Clear Creek Amana (CCA) varsity girls’ basketball team in 2011 and found a program in trouble. With a new outlook and a new way of doing things, the team closed-out his debut season with a 7-16 record, just one win short of the total wins in the previous three seasons. Last year the Clippers hit the .500 mark at 11-11 (6-8 in WaMaC play for fifth in the conference).
