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.

July 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

The University of Iowa has not won a Big Ten baseball championship since 1990 but new coach Rick Heller says the future for the program is bright. Heller was introduced on Monday as the Hawkeyes new coach. The native of Eldon spent the past four years as the head coach at Indiana State. Heller says Iowa AD Gary Barta offered him a partnershuip with the administration to build the program. He says he will go to work immediately and says his goal is to keep the best players in the state.

Heller says he enjoys coaching and developing talent. He coached at UNI rom 1999 until the program was discontinued in 2009. He says as the lone remaining division one program in the state Iowa has a lot of potential. Barta says the administration is making a bigger commitment top the sport of baseball and will begin the process of upgrading facilities.

Heller began his college coaching career with a successful run at Upper Iowa. He takes over a program that qualified for the Big Ten tournament three times during former coach Jack Dahm’s 10 years at the helm.
