Iowa State’s Saina wins 10k at NCAA championships

Sports

June 6th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Iowa State senior Betsy Saina was pressed all the way by Wichita State’s Aliphine Tuliamuk-Bolton but pushed at the end to win the women’s 10,000 meters at the NCAA outdoor track and field championships Wednesday night. Saina took the lead for good with about four laps to go and surged down the stretch to win in 33 minutes, 8.85 seconds. Tuliamuk-Bolton was second in 33:14.12.

Saina, a native of Kenya, wraps up a distinguished college career that also includes NCAA titles in the 2012 indoor 5,000 and the individual cross country title last November. She ran the 10,000 this year at the Payton Jordan Cardinal invitational in 31:37.22, the third-best collegiate time ever run.

Sports

June 6th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Paul Goldschmidt hit his second grand slam in five days, Wade Miley bounced back from his two worst outings of the season and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the St. Louis Cardinals 10-3 on Wednesday night. Arizona has won four of five. St. Louis, with the best record in the majors, dropped back-to-back games for the first time since April 28-29. Goldschmidt became the first Arizona player with two slams on the same road trip. He hit one in a 12-4 win at the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

Goldschmidt also hit a go-ahead single in the 14th inning to beat St. Louis on Tuesday night. He has a team-leading 14 homers and leads the NL with 53 RBIs, including 12 in his last five games.

Frederickson Fund donates to CAM Sports

News, Sports

June 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

The CAM Youth Sports Program’s baseball/softball diamond project recently received a $2500 boost from the Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund. The project’s goals include a backstop and outfield fence improvements.

Picture: CAM High School Principal, Dominic Giegerich (middle), accepts a donation from Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund representatives, Darrin and Melanie Petty.

In addition, a Boy Scout working  on his Eagle Scout project is building a concession stand and bathroom for the facility. Melanie Petty, Trevor’s mother and Fund representative said “Trevor had an undeniable passion for baseball and loved kids. The Fund’s mission is to support projects and organizations that represent Trevor’s interests,” so the baseball/softball diamond project was a “Perfect fit.” 
 
The Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund, a non-profit corporation, was founded after the 21 year old Atlantic native lost his life in a 2009 apartment fire. Since his passing, over $68,000 has been donated back to the community Trevor loved. The T-Fred Memorial Golf Tournament and Silent Auction, held annually the second Saturday in August at Atlantic’s Nishna Hills Golf Club, is the Fund’s only fundraiser. For more information, follow the Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund on Facebook.

Iowa residents can fish for free this weekend

Ag/Outdoor, Sports

June 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa residents can fish without a license this weekend. The Department of Natural Resources says the free fishing weekend will run from Friday through Sunday. The event typically is scheduled during a time when bluegills are usually close to shore and aggressive, making it likely novice anglers will have success.

The DNR encourages those catching their first fish to take a photo and send it to the DNR, which will commemorate the event by sending back a certificate suitable for framing and the submitted photo. Information on the first fish program is available online at www.iowadnr.gov/Fishing/MasterAnglerFirstFish.aspx .

All other regulations remain in place during the free fishing weekend.

Chiefs CEO Hunt drops in on mandatory minicamp

Sports

June 5th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt made a rare appearance at mandatory minicamp Tuesday and walked away pleased with the progress the team has made under new general manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid. Hunt has rarely attended practices the past few years, but said in January he wanted to take on a more visible role with the franchise that his late father Lamar founded during the AFL days.

Hunt led the search for coach Romeo Crennel’s replacement, and then hired Dorsey to replace Scott Pioli. So he was keen to see what the Chiefs have been up to since the NFL draft. Former Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil, a longtime friend of Reid, also dropped in on practice. It was Vermeil who helped convince Reid to take the job.
