AMES, Iowa (AP) – Former Iowa State women’s basketball star Kelsey Bolte will play professionally in France next season.  Iowa State says Bolte has signed to play with a team in Nice, which competes in France’s top women’s basketball league.  Bolte averaged 16.9 points per game last season for the Cyclones, helping Iowa State finish 22-11 and earn its fifth straight trip to the NCAA Tournament.  Bolte will leave for France on Monday for training camp.

Chiefs Cast Unanimous Vote to Recertify

Sports

July 30th, 2011 by Jim Field

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) – The Kansas City Chiefs have voted unanimously to recertify as a players union.  Several players said Friday there was no sentiment not to recertify the NFL Players Association as a union.  “I know a lot of the deal was based on the fact that we had to recertify,” quarterback Matt Cassell said. “We know as of Aug. 4 this labor lockout would continue. We voted unanimously to end it and recertify.”  The union decertified last March at the start of the owners’ lockout.  Once the NFLPA regains its union status, it can finish negotiating the collective bargaining agreement with the NFL.  Having that done will allow players who have agreed to new deals to join their teams.

Iowa State Recruit Vanloo To Wait A Year

Sports

July 28th, 2011 by Jim Field

Iowa State women’s basketball recruit Julie Vanloo is working toward attending a college in Belgium for the 2011-12 academic year with the hopes of attending Iowa State in the near future.

“We have been informed by the NCAA that Julie has not been cleared to play basketball at Iowa State during the 2011-12 academic year,” Iowa State head coach Bill Fennelly said. “Throughout the process, Julie has maintained her passion about becoming a Cyclone. She is looking into the possibility of attending a college in Belgium which would allow her to attend and play at Iowa State in the near future.”

Per NCAA rules, Vanloo, a native of Oostende, Belgium, would be eligible to attend Iowa State in the future provided she meets academic qualifications for international transfer students. Vanloo would be a freshman student-athlete in 2012-13.
