Iowa State DL Meyers finishing chemo for Hodgkin’s lymphoma


July 21st, 2015 by Ric Hanson

DALLAS (AP) — Iowa State defensive lineman Mitchell Meyers is close to wrapping up chemotherapy for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a process during which he didn’t miss any summer workouts with his teammates. Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads said Tuesday that Meyers has his last scheduled chemo appointment Friday in Iowa.

Rhoads said Mitchell, who is from the Houston area, will then return to Texas for radiation treatment before rejoining the team in September. Iowa State announced in February that Meyers had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and was beginning treatment.

Rhoads said prayers are still extended for Mitchell and his family, and that the team watches “in admiration and appreciation each and every single day.” Mitchell, listed at 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds, was one of only four ISU players to start every game last season.

Cards call up top hitting prospect Piscotty


July 21st, 2015 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have called up outfielder/first baseman Stephen Piscotty, their top hitting prospect, from Triple-A Memphis prior to Tuesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox. The Cardinals optioned outfielder Tommy Pham to Memphis on Sunday to make room for Piscotty on the 40-man major-league roster.

The right-handed-hitting Piscotty was batting .272 with 11 home runs and 41 RBIs in his 87 games at Memphis this season. He has raised his season average from .243 since June 1 by batting .308 (44 for 143) over the past six weeks.

Piscotty will make his major league debut with his first game appearance.

Prohm, Cyclones prep for trip to Spain


July 20th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Steve Prohm inherited more than just a talented team when he accepted the Iowa State job. He also took over a group whose personality had already been forged through years of shared experiences — good and bad. Prohm and the Cyclones are about to truly get to know one another.

Iowa State opened practice Monday in preparation for a four-game trip to Barcelona, Valencia and Madrid early next month. Prohm says the trip is “not really about winning games and playing. It’s about the time together, the camaraderie.”

The Cyclones, who won 25 games and the Big 12 tournament last season, open the 2015-16 on Nov. 13 against Colorado in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The NCAA allows teams to make one trip overseas every four years.

Iowa Native Johnson Wins British Open; Spieth Finishes Short of Playoff


July 20th, 2015 by Jim Field

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland (AP) — Jordan Spieth’s amazing bid for a Grand Slam was stopped Monday by Zach Johnson, no longer just a normal guy from Iowa.

Johnson captured his second major at the home of golf, winning the British Open in a playoff over Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman that capped off a wild five days at St. Andrews and a finish that won’t soon be forgotten.

Most of that was because of Spieth, who came within inches of a shot at the third leg of the Grand Slam. The Masters and U.S. Open champion rolled in a 50-foot birdie putt on the 16th hole to tie for the lead with two holes to play. He missed an 8-foot putt on the tough 17th hole and took bogey, and his final bid to join the playoff was a long birdie attempt from the edge of the Valley of Sin.

It turned left of the hole, ending the latest bid at the holy grail of golf — winning all four professional majors in the same year.

“We gave it a great effort,” Spieth said.

Spieth hung around for the playoff, and walked out to the course to give Johnson a hug before the 39-year-old received the silver claret jug.

Johnson rolled in a 30-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole in regulation to close with a 6-under 66. Leishman badly missed his birdie putt that would have won it, while Oosthuizen hit a perfect wedge to 5 feet for birdie and a 69 to join the playoff.

Johnson opened the four-hole playoff with two birdies. When he missed his 18-foot birdie putt on the final hole at No. 18, Oosthuizen had a 12-foot birdie putt to force sudden death. It caught the left edge of the cup, and Johnson was in tears.

He said when he won the 2007 Masters that he was just a normal guy from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Now he has two majors among his 12 PGA Tour victories.

“I’m grateful. I’m humbled. I’m honored,” Johnson said. “This is the birthplace of the game, and that jug means so much in sports. I felt great. I’m just in awe right now.”
