Authorities in Greenfield said today (Wednesday), two Nodaway Valley High School students have been arrested in connection with an incident related to the Nodaway Valley wrestling team. According to Greenfield Police Chief Austin O’Brien, 18-year-old Mikel Fieck and a 17-year-old juvenile, both from Greenfield, have been charged with 2nd degree Sexual Abuse, in connection with a hazing incident involving a student on the wrestling squad. Feick was booked into the Adair County Jail and later released on $25,000 bond. The 17-year-old juvenile was being held in a juvenile detention facility in Eldora.

Iowa lawmakers likely to revisit lead shot / dove hunting issue

Ag/Outdoor, News, Sports

January 11th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Legislators are likely to engage in a spirited debate over what kind of bullets may be fired at doves. Last year, in uncharacteristically speedy fashion, lawmakers voted to legalize dove hunting in Iowa. But Senator Dick Dearden of Des Moines and others are upset with the Iowa Natural Resources Commission’s decision to forbid hunters from using lead shot when firing at doves. “People talk about the legislature sneaking this (law) through and the reality is they snuck through that (restriction),” Dearden says. “They came through at the last minute and made the rule.” The rule requires the use of steel shot for dove hunting, but a resolution that would nullify that rule is pending in both the Iowa House and the Iowa Senate. Representative Henry Rayhons, of Garner, stopped by a local gun shop last week and heard lots of complaints about steel shot.

“It’s not as accurate,” Rayhons says. “It’s harder on the guns and it’s darned near twice as expensive.” Critics say animals, like ducks and eagles, die after eating the lead shot lying on the ground that didn’t wind up in a bird. Dearden, a life-long hunter, accuses those opponents of using the lead-shot issue as a smoke-screen to try to derail the entire dove hunting law. “It’s all about doves,” Dearden says. “It has nothing to do with eagles or anything else.” Dearden says he got plenty of hate mail after spearheading passage of the dove hunting law last year.

“My favorite was a woman who said: ‘You’re a sick old man. I hope you die while hunting mourning doves,’” Dearden says. “I emailed her back and said: ‘So do I.’” Critics of lead shot say it’s a danger to humans, too, who eat bird meat that’s riddled with lead fragments. One study suggested lead particles have been found up to a foot and a half away, causing a greater risk of lead poisoning to humans than previously thought.

January 11th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Ben Simons scored 21 points to lead four Drake players in double figures, and the Bulldogs defeated Bradley 82-74 on Tuesday night, handing the Braves their eighth loss in a row.

Taylor Brown led all players with 28 points for Bradley (5-12, 0-5). He also had 12 rebounds. Walt Lemon Jr. scored 16 and Dyricus Harris-Edwards added 15 points for the Braves, who led by 10 early before Drake trimmed Bradley’s lead to 34-33 at halftime. There were 53 fouls called in the game, 29 on Bradley. Drake was 28 for 40 at the free-throw line, led by Rice’s 13 of 18, while Bradley made 24 of its 35 foul shots.

Northern Iowa loses 63-60 to No. 23 Creighton


January 11th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Northern Iowa kept Creighton star Doug McDermott under control, and the Panthers started the game making 3-pointers in rapid succession. Then came an 11½-minute stretch in which they couldn’t score a field goal, and they ended up with a 63-60 loss to the 23rd-ranked Bluejays on Tuesday night. After scoring 31 points the first 13 minutes, the Panthers managed only 29 in the final 27. The Panthers held McDermott, the nation’s second-leading scorer at 25.2 points a game, to 14. But all the attention they gave to McDermott allowed Antoine Young to score a season-high 21 points for the Bluejays. Young, shooting 39 percent for the season, made 9 of 14 shots, with his only 3-pointer giving the Bluejays a five-point lead with 2 minutes left. The Bluejays (14-2, 4-1 Missouri Valley Conference) could never build a safe lead despite shutting down the Panthers (12-5, 2-3) for such a long stretch over the first and second halves. Marc Sonnen scored a season-high 15 points for Northern Iowa — all in the first half — and Anthony James added 10. The Panthers went 8 of 12 from 3-point range in the first half to build a double-digit lead and finished with a season-high 12 3s.

Green leads No. 6 Michigan State over Iowa 95-61


January 10th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Draymond Green had 22 points and nine rebounds to help No. 6 Michigan State beat Iowa 95-61 on Tuesday night for its 15th straight win. The win gives the Spartans (15-2, 4-0 Big Ten) their longest winning streak since the 1998-99 season, when they won 22 in a row before losing to Duke in the national championship game. The Hawkeyes (10-8, 2-3) have been routed in two straight games — they also lost to Ohio State — after beating Wisconsin and Minnesota on the road. Aaron White scored 15 points and Devyn Marble had 12 for Iowa. Michigan State went on a 16-0 run late in the first half and had a 14-0 spurt midway through the second. During the second burst, Iowa coach Fran McCaffery was called for a technical for berating an official. McCaffery then directed his anger toward his players, slamming a chair in their timeout huddle and screaming in their faces.

ESPN: Marcus Coker Leaves Iowa Football Team


January 10th, 2012 by Jim Field

Iowa has granted running back Marcus Coker his release from the program after the sophomore withdrew his application to enroll in spring semester classes.

Coker, the Big Ten’s second-leading rusher in 2011 with 1,384 yards, was suspended for the Insight Bowl for an unspecified violation of university policies and Iowa’s student-athlete code of conduct.

Coach Kirk Ferentz never elaborated on Coker’s suspension, but said he hoped Coker would rejoin the team at some point.

The team on Tuesday said Coker asked for a release from his scholarship, which was granted.

Coker is the latest promising Iowa running back to leave the team. The Hawkeyes announced last week that freshman Mika’il McCall would leave the program.

Adam Robinson, who led the team in rushing last season before being suspended for a bowl game, didn’t return for the 2011 campaign. Jewel Hampton and Brandon Wegher also have departed the Iowa program.

Coker filled in for Robinson at the 2010 Insight Bowl and had 219 rush yards and two touchdowns. He led Iowa with 281 carries and scored 15 rush touchdowns this past season.

The move leaves Iowa thin at running back for 2012. Freshman Jordan Canzeri, who led the team with 58 yards rushing in a 31-14 loss to Oklahoma in the bowl game, would appear to be in line for the starting job.
