Drake detour includes nine Solon entries

As if three meets in a week wasn’t enough, Solon’s girls have qualified for nine events at this weekend’s nationally renowned Drake Relays. Though rare in most big name track meets, high school competition is a staple at Drake, with 16 events helping pack the stadium. Drake has sold out its Saturday sessions for over 30 years.
At the line for Solon this weekend will be its 4x100, 4x200, and 4x800 relays, as well as Lauren Benzing in the 1,500 and 3,000 meter races, Rylee Smith in the 100-meter hurdles, Jordan Smith in the long jump and Kara Misel in the shot put and discus.

Hawkeye spring football

PART TWO

This is the second part of a look at Hawkeye football and spring practice.
Last week I talked about the depth and experience of the offensive line.
This week I’ll look at the tight ends, wide receivers and a new position called Y-back.
The Y-back will be a combination of tight end and blocking fullback.
The tight end position should be as good and deep as the offensive line.
Zach Derby is the only graduate, but when you talk about senior C.J. Fiedorowicz (6-7, 265) as your starting tight end, you are in pretty good shape.
