Resiliency, rookies keeping Cardinals on top

Sports

July 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Yadier Molina is an MVP candidate, Adam Wainwright is back in ace form and Carlos Beltran is playing like a kid. And that’s only half of the six-player All-Star contingent that led the St. Louis Cardinals to the best record in majors at the break. The Cardinals have done enough things right, leaning on rookies and resiliency, to compensate for some serious personnel blows. They’re 21 games above .500 entering a six-game home stand Friday that starts against the Padres.

Getting there hasn’t been a smooth ride for second-year manager Mike Matheny and general manager John Mozeliak. They’ve had to fill two rotation spots on the fly, find a replacement closer and endure dry patches from the National League’s best offense.

Prep Football Semis, Championships to Remain at the UNI-Dome through 2017

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The University of Northern Iowa and the Iowa High School Athletic Association have agreed to a five-year extension of the contract for the state football playoff semifinals and finals in the UNI-Dome. The new agreement runs through the 2017 season.

“The University of Northern Iowa is proud to continue our long-standing relationship with the IHSAA and its member Iowa high schools,” UNI President Bill Ruud said. “The UNI-Dome is the ultimate destination for thousands of high school football players, their coaches, families and friends. We are pleased to host the playoffs at a venue that provides a positive athletic experience. While high school students and families are on campus this fall for the playoffs, we invite them to our Open Houses, which will provide an opportunity to tour campus, meet faculty and visit the Cedar Valley community.”

IHSAA Executive Director Rick Wulkow and UNI Director of Athletics Troy Dannen agreed to the extension which ensures the semifinal and championship rounds of the grid playoffs to remain in the UNI-Dome. The Dome has hosted the championship games since the inception of the building in 1976 and the semifinal rounds since 1998.

“Each year the UNI-Dome staff and UNI Athletics look forward to putting our best foot forward and providing a venue that exceeds championship standards,” Dannen said. “We look forward to continuing the partnership between the Iowa High School Athletic Association and UNI Athletics.”

“For the past 37 years our high schools, their players, coaches and fans have come to equate the UNI-Dome as the destination for the season,” stated Wulkow. “The facilities are excellent and UNI’s administration and the UNI-Dome staff have been great hosts and partners in accommodating our teams, players and fans while removing weather as a game factor.”

Dates for this year’s semifinals are Thursday through Saturday, November 14, 15 and 16 with the title games on Thursday, November 21 and Friday, November 22.

Iowa taps Arizona St. official for compliance job

Sports

July 17th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The University of Iowa athletics department has named an Arizona State official to a newly-designed job overseeing compliance with NCAA regulations. Athletic Director Gary Barta announced Tuesday the hiring of Lyla Clerry as associate athletics director, praising her “knowledge, integrity, and customer service.” Clerry worked seven years as an assistant AD at Arizona State.

The position comes under a reorganization that Barta announced last year in which he is creating separate units to oversee compliance and academic services. Previously, department official Fred Mims oversaw both functions. Barta reassigned Mims last November amid questions about the school’s handling of sexual harassment allegations against academic counselor Peter Gray.

Gray resigned after an internal investigation alleged that he improperly touched athletes for years. Barta says the reorganization will better serve coaches and students.

Council Bluffs preps for thousands of bicycle riders

News, Sports

July 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Council Bluffs is preparing for 25-thousand visitors as RAGBRAI begins this weekend. The Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa brings in bicyclists from around the world and they’ll start the west-to-east trek in Council Bluffs this year. Kathy Fiscus, with the Council Bluffs Convention and Visitors Bureau, says 20 committees have been working on RAGBRAI preparations for several months, with public safety as the top priority.

Fiscus says, “That means examining the route to make sure the streets are in good shape, to consider where directional signage should go so that semi-truck traffic and RVs and campers and bicycles don’t tangle up and create a mishap.” Fiscus says it’s an honor for Council Bluffs to be the first host city for this year’s big cycling event. “It’s a way to show, not only Iowans, but the world, our beautiful city,” she says. “This year, the tire dip is at the Tom Hanafan River’s Edge Park and the exit route this year will go through Council Bluffs, so the riders will see our beautiful Bayliss Park, our historic 100 block of Broadway, for example.”

Council Bluffs hosted RAGBRAI in 2009 and was designated then as City of the Year. Fiscus says 15-thousand bicyclists are expected to leave Council Bluffs Sunday morning for the start of the week-long RAGBRAI. Riders will also pass through Harlan, Perry, Des Moines, Knoxville, Oskaloosa and Fairfield along the route. RAGBRAI ends on July 27th in Fort Madison.
