DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Drake Relays is adding a women’s 800-meter race to this year’s meet. Officials announced Tuesday that they’ve lined up eight of the top 10 800-meter runners in the U.S. The field will include Ajee Wilson and Brenda Martinez, the second and third-ranked 800 runners in the world.

Meet officials also say that the world’s top-ranked 110-meter hurdler, Pascal Martinot-Lagarde of France, will compete at Drake. American LaShawn Merritt will be back to defend his meet title in the 400. The Drake Relays will be held from April 23-25 at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa.

Iowa point guard Dickerson to leave after less than a season


February 23rd, 2015 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa point guard Trey Dickerson is leaving the program after less than a year in Iowa City. The Hawkeyes announced Monday that Dickerson has been granted a release from his scholarship. Dickerson, a sophomore, will finish out the year academically before transferring to a new school.

Dickerson, a junior college transfer, never quite fit in with the Hawkeyes. He struggled to find playing time behind juniors Mike Gesell and Anthony Clemmons and wound up playing just 15 games at Iowa, averaging 2.7 points. Dickerson’s departure will free up an extra scholarship that Iowa could possibly use in the increasingly important spring signing season.

For the archery season we have 4 archery members who have qualified for state- Heather Freund, Luke Frisbee , Taylor Kirchner, and Jordan Zarbano.  The entire team did have a qualifying score however it was late in the season and all shooting spots have been taken. The Archery Team did have a qualifying national shoot during this contest and now may attend the National Shoot in Kentucky. We are hoping Saturdays score will allow us a chance to register sooner.

Thanks to All of those who have given positive feedback and press to this season’s team.

– Coach Justin Williams
