COMEBACK CITY

Hawk Talk

By Don Lund

I sometimes have to choose from a couple of headlines to start the story.
For Saturday’s 24-21 win over Michigan, I thought either “OH MY-MY” or “COMEBACK CITY.”
I asked one of my homeboys, Tad, who is from Sioux City and was at his first Hawkeye game, to pick one and he went with the “COMEBACK CITY.”
Good call, Tad.
I’m not sure why, but when the score was 21-7 at half Saturday at frigid Kinnick Stadium, I had a flashback to 1997, when Tim Dwight and Tavian Banks were seniors for the Hawks.

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.
