No. 8 Iowa looks for 1st 10-0 start vs. Minnesota

Sports

November 13th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — No. 8 Iowa insists it isn’t worried about the Big Ten West title, a league championship or its current standing in the playoff chase. Starting 10-0 for the first time is all the Hawkeyes (9-0, 5-0 Big Ten, No. 5 CFP) care about these days.

Iowa can knock off the first of what it hopes will be many milestones on Saturday when it hosts Minnesota (4-5, 1-4). The Hawkeyes have never won 10 in a row to start a season — not even when they finished in the top 10 three years in a row earlier last decade.

No. 5 Oklahoma State wraps up road slate at Iowa State

November 13th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Four years ago, Iowa State dashed Oklahoma State’s national title hopes on a chilly night in November. An equally poor performance on Saturday in Ames would probably doom the Cowboys again; even with Baylor and Oklahoma still left on their schedule.

No. 5 Oklahoma State (9-0, 6-0 Big 12) could have a clear path to a playoff spot — despite being ranked just eighth by the committee — after trouncing previously-unbeaten TCU 49-29 last week. But with so much competition for the top four slots, the Cowboys can’t afford to look past Iowa State.

Cardinals great Lou Brock recovering after leg amputation

Sports

November 12th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer Lou Brock, a former base stealing champion, has had his left leg amputated below the knee due to an infection related to diabetes. The Cardinals and a longtime friend, Dick Zitzmann, confirmed that the 76-year-old Brock had had the procedure done. Brock is undergoing therapy at an area hospital and will be fitted for a prosthetic leg. Zitzmann says the operation was done Oct. 27. Brock was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes about 15 years ago.

Brock stole a National League-record 938 bases, including 118 in 1974. He had 3,023 hits, becoming a star after a celebrated trade from the Cubs in 1964 for pitcher Ernie Broglio. Brock batted .391 with four home runs and 10 steals in 21 World Series games.

 

Atlantic’s Hawkins signs with Wayne State

Sports

November 11th, 2015 by Chris Parks

Atlantic Senior Ryan Hawkins signed a National Letter of Intent Wednesday to continue his basketball career at Wayne State University.   The Wildcats are an NCAA Division II program playing in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.  Hawkins signed on Wednesday at the Atlantic high school surrounded by the Atlantic coaching staff and his Mother Rhonda.

Ryan said he felt that Wayne State was a great fit for him because the coaching staff really wanted him to get to know the players and made him feel welcome.

Hawkins said he first knew he would have the possibility of playing at the collegiate level when he was a Sophomore and the team really worked hard to come together and motivated him to work toward that goal.

He said he worked hard to improve and felt he had a great summer in AAU competition.  He stated that he looked at a few other schools in the area but felt Wayne State was where he belonged and likes the fact that he won’t be too far from home.

Atlantic Head Coach Alan Jenkins said it is a great honor for a player to achieve a scholarship to play basketball at the next level.

Jenkins gave all the credit to Hawkins saying that he didn’t get attention from colleges by luck or accident but by hard work.  He also touched on Hawkins’ leadership in the program.

Coach Jenkins also talked about what he tries to do as a coach to blend improving the team along with helping a player individually to help them get to the next level.

Hawkins will now focus on his Senior season with the Trojan squad and is looking forward to seeing what they can achieve.
