Drake Relays Announces Hall of Fame Class


April 11th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Drake Relays has selected four members for this year’s Hall of Fame class. Meet officials say Joey Haines, Victor Thomas, Tommy Asinga and former Iowa State star Edith Nakiyingi will be inducted on April 26. Haines is the former head track and field coach at Southeast Missouri State, where his teams won 11 Drake Relays event titles in the 1980s. Thomas, who coaches at Lincoln University in Missouri, has had 39 athletes win meet titles since 1996. Asinga was a five-time All-American at Eastern Michigan and competed in the 1988, ’92 and ’96 Summer Olympics for Suriname. Nakiyingi won the university/college division 800 meters in 1989 and 1991 and the women’s invitational 800 in 1990.

Cardinals Hit 2 HRs to Beat Reds 3-1


April 10th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CINCINNATI (AP) — Carlos Beltran and David Freese homered again on Tuesday night, and Kyle Lohse provided another stingy performance, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The defending World Series champions are 5-1 for the first time since 2008. Beltran, counted on to help make up for the loss of Albert Pujols, hit his third homer off Mike Leake (0-1). Freese, the World Series MVP, added a two-run shot off Leake — also his third. St. Louis came into the game leading the majors with nine homers. Lohse (2-0) has made impressive starts in Florida’s summery warmth and Cincinnati’s April chill. The right-hander beat the Marlins 4-1 last Wednesday. He gave up four hits and Joey Votto’s sacrifice fly in six innings on Tuesday. Game 3 of the three-game series begins Wednesday morning on KJAN.

Cedar Rapids’ Washpun Headed to Northern Iowa


April 10th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

(AP) – Former Cedar Rapids basketball star Wes Washpun says he’ll next play college basketball at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls.  Washpun said UNI called soon after he got his official release from the University of Tennessee. Washpun averaged playing 10 minutes a game this past season and scored 16 points in 17 games for the Volunteers.  He says he had a good season in Knoxville, Tenn., and liked Tennessee’s coach Cuonzo Martin. But Washpun says he just felt like he had to come home to Iowa.  In a news release, Martin says the Tennessee program wishes nothing but the best for Washpun. Washpun will have to sit out next season, and then will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.

Cardinals Hit 3 HRs, Beat Reds 7-1


April 10th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

CINCINNATI (AP) — Matt Holliday, David Freese and Yadier Molina homered during the St. Louis Cardinals’ big first inning, and Jake Westbrook found his control after a rough start, beating the Cincinnati Reds 7-1 on Monday night. The defending World Series champions improved to 4-1 with an offense that hasn’t missed Albert Pujols so far. Only 20 pitches into the game, Reds starter Homer Bailey (0-1) trailed 4-0. It was the second time this season that St. Louis hit three homers in an inning. Molina also doubled home a pair of runs in the eighth. Westbrook (1-0) overcame an early bout of wildness, allowing only three hits and one unearned run in seven innings. Reds All-Star second baseman Brandon Phillips left the game with a hamstring cramp.
