July 15th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

The Trevor Frederickson Foundation is footing the bill for transportation to the State Softball Tournament next week, in Fort Dodge. Atlantic faces Davenport Assumption Tuesday, July 19th, beginning at 1-p.m. Foundation officials said Thursday, anyone wanting to ride the Atlantic High School Pep Bus in support of the Trojan Softball Team, should contact the High School by no later than the end of the day today (Friday), at 243-5358, and reserve your spot on the bus. In addition, the Foundation will pay the students’ admission ticket price to the game for any student wishing to ride the Pep Bus.

There is no limit to the number of people who can ride, and they’ll use as many buses as needed. The Foundation will pay the cost of the buses. In addition, there will be a drawing on each bus, for a $50 gift card from Olsen’s B-P.

The Trevor Frederickson Foundation is working with the Atlantic School District Administration to coordinate the project.


Road looks tougher for Cubs in second half


July 15th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

UNDATED (AP) — The second half of the Major League Baseball season gets underway today (Friday), when the All-Star break ends with a 15-game schedule. The Cubs raced out to a seven-game lead at the break by playing the second-easiest schedule in the majors. But things might get a little tougher for the NL Central leaders in next few weeks.

Chicago returns from the All-Star break with three games against AL-leading Texas and then plays the Mets, Brewers, White Sox and Mariners to close out July. All but Milwaukee are over .500 and competing for playoff spots.

St. Louis opens the season’s second-half at home, hosting Miami starting tonight. The Kansas City Royals will be on the road at Detroit.

University of Iowa to lay off ex-athletic official who sued

News, Sports

July 13th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – The University of Iowa plans to lay off a former top athletic department administrator who is suing the school after her earlier reassignment to a job unrelated to sports. Court documents filed Wednesday show the university has informed Jane Meyer that her job as a project manager will be eliminated effective Sept. 9.

Meyer’s attorney, Jill Zwagerman, is seeking to block the termination from taking effect and says the move is further retaliation for Meyer’s complaints about wage discrimination and gender bias in the department.

Athletic director Gary Barta reassigned Meyer in December 2014. He said the move was necessary because Meyer’s partner, former women’s field hockey coach Tracey Griesbaum, was planning to sue over her own firing. Meyer alleges she was paid far less than her male replacement.
