Ticket Sales Brisk for Iowa City Olympic Trials

Sports

February 10th, 2012 by Jim Field

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Officials say that over 7,500 tickets have been sold for the April’s U.S. Olympic team wrestling trials in Iowa City.

USA Wrestling events director Pete Isais says ticket demand for the 2012 trials is the highest it’s ever been.

The trial will determine who’ll wrestle for the U.S. in the London Olympics in August. They’ll be held April 21 and 22 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Six former University of Iowa wrestlers are among the 175 athletes who’ve already qualified for the event.

Iowa’s Ferentz on Steady Ground Despite Turmoil

Sports

February 10th, 2012 by Jim Field

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Two straight years of disappointing results, star running backs leaving the program and the loss of both coordinators would land many coaches on the hot seat.

Not Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz. He’s not going anywhere.

Ferentz is the Big Ten’s longest-tenured coach at 13 seasons and counting. He also has the unwavering support of athletic director Gary Barta despite the turmoil that has engulfed the program over the past 18 months.

Barta says Ferentz has run a program that’s extremely successful on the field and sports one of the highest graduation rates in the country. Barta also says Ferentz’s value system is shared by the people of Iowa.

Iowa Women Roll Past Minnesota Thursday Night

Sports

February 10th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Earlier this week when asked what her team needed to do to replace the game-night contributions of Jamie Printy, Samantha Logic suggested quietly that everyone else on the women’s basketball team at the University of Iowa needed to do just a little more than they would have before the Hawkeyes’ all-Big Ten guard was lost for the season. Thursday night on Mediacom Court in Carver-Hawkeye Arena, the multi-talented freshman guard from Racine, Wis., did exactly that and a little more for good measure to lead Bluder’s Bunch to a convincing 75-58 victory over Minnesota in the Hawkeyes’ annual “Pink Game” in support of the Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Logic completed her night with 20 points, nine rebounds, and six assists. Morgan Johnson led all scorers with 23 points. In addition to becoming the 32nd Hawkeye to score 1,000 points in their career, Iowa’s post player also had eight rebounds and three blocked shots. Kamille Wahlin added 19 points and five three-point baskets, and Kelly Krei added nine rebounds on Kelli Krei Bobblehead Night. The victory was Iowa’s fourth straight and second in a row since the loss of Printy. It pushed Iowa’s Big Ten Conference record to 7-5 and the team’s overall mark to 15-10. The Gophers fell to 4-8 in league play – a mark that includes a victory over league-leading and nationally ranked Ohio State – and 12-14 for the season.

Iowa returns to action Sunday when Bluder’s Bunch entertains Michigan State at 2 p.m. in Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The Spartans carried a 6-4 Big Ten record and a 14-9 overall mark into their game against Northwestern Thursday in East Lansing, Mich.
