1972 Big Ten Champion John Evashevski Passes


June 5th, 2021 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Former University of Iowa wrestler and Big Ten champion John Evashevski passed away May 30 at his home in Michigan. He was 70 years old.

Evashevski was a three-year letterwinner for the Iowa wrestling team from 1970-72 and won the 177-pound Big Ten title in 1972. He earned a state wrestling title for Iowa City High in 1968 and later graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Science degree and a state teaching certificate. Evashevski then moved to Michigan, where he taught and coached football and wrestling. He founded the wrestling program at St. Ignace Area Schools and was the head coach for 28 years.

Evashevski is survived by his wife, Lucy Ann Evashevski, and their two sons, Forest Matthew Evashevski and Michael Charles Evashevski. He is the son of the late Forest and Ruth Evashevski. Forest Evashevski was Iowa’s head football coach from 1952-1960 and Iowa’s athletic director from 1960-70.

A memorial celebrating his life will be held June 9 at St. Ignace United Methodist Church in St. Ignace, Michigan. More details are available at rgalerfuneralhome.com.

Iowa State’s Kiptoo named USTFCCCA Midwest Region Men’s Outdoor Track Athlete of the Year


June 5th, 2021 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa – Wesley Kiptoo’s outstanding performances throughout the outdoor track and field season continue to get recognition, as the Cyclone was named the USTFCCCA’s Midwest Region Men’s Outdoor Track Athlete of the Year. Kiptoo is the first Cyclone men’s runner to earn Outdoor Athlete of the Year since the current regional structuring began in 2007. Two weeks ago, Kiptoo became the first male Cyclone to be named Big 12 Men’s Outdoor Track and Field Performer of the Year.

Kiptoo only toed the line seven times during the outdoor season so far, but each time he has the Marakwet, Kenya native found a way to make history. His first run of the outdoor season came on Apr. 2 at the Hayward Premiere in Eugene, Oregon, where Kiptoo ran to what was then the fastest time in the nation at 10,000m to win the event in 27:58.10.

Three weeks later he was back in Eugene for the Oregon Relays as part of a star-studded race. Though he finished fourth in the 5,000m that night, Kiptoo did clock a personal best 13:21.02, the No. 3 time in ISU history and at the time the No. 4 mark in the country with all three finishing ahead of him being previous NCAA Champions in Oregon’s Cole Hocker and Cooper Teare and his ISU teammate Edwin Kurgat.

At the  Big 12 Outdoor Track and Field Championships three weeks ago, Kiptoo became the first male student-athlete in Big 12 history to win three individual conference titles in the same weekend, earning the Championships High Point Award in the process. What made Kiptoo’s triple impressive was that it took place in the three longest races: the 3,000m steeplechase, the 5,000m run and 10,000m run and all in record-breaking fashion. Kiptoo is believed to be the first men’s student-athlete to win those three conference championships at the same conference meet since Ole Miss’ Barnabas Kirui did so at the 2007 SEC Outdoor Championships.

All three of Kiptoo’s wins came in meet-record times, with two of Kansas State’s R.V. Christian Track Records going down and one of the oldest ISU school records being taken down. He started his run with a dominant wire-to-wire win in the 10,000m, claiming the title in 28:22.98 and leading an ISU 1-2-3-4 in the event.

The next day saw Kiptoo make his ISU debut in the steeplechase, and once again he went wire-to-wire in a Championships, Facility and School Record time of 8:31.82 and 14 seconds ahead of his closest competitor. Kiptoo’s mark took down Iowa State’s 25-year old school record of 8:32.01 run by Dmitry Drozdov at the 1996 NCAA Track & Field Championships, and is also the No. 2 time in the event this year in NCAA Division I.

In the rain for the 5,000m, Kiptoo had his first non-wire-to-wire win of the weekend, but he was able to shake off his closest competitor in the first mile and pulled away to another Championships and Facility record of 13:29.92 to complete his triple.

At the NCAA West Preliminaries last weekend, Kiptoo went wire-to-wire in both the 5,000 and 10,000-meter runs to secure his entries to next week’s NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. He set a Texas A&M E.B. Cushing Stadium records in both events, going 28:50.11 in the 10K, and 13:42.70 in the 5K. Kiptoo’s 10,000 mark was also an NCAA West Prelims meet record.

Kiptoo and the rest of the Cyclones begin the 2021 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, hosted at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, on Wednesday.

Iowa’s Woody and Tausaga earn USTFCCCA honors


June 5th, 2021 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa director of track and field Joey Woody and Hawkeye senior Laulauga Tausaga have been named Midwest Region Men’s Coach of the Year and Midwest Region Women’s Field Athlete of the Year. The announcement was made Friday by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

The USTFCCCA honor is the fifth of Woody’s career and second this season. He earned head coach honors following the 2021 indoor and 2019 outdoor seasons, and was named Midwest Region Assistant Coach of the Year in 2013 and 2011.

The USTFCCCA honor is the fourth of Tausaga’s career and only the fifth in program history. She was recognized following the 2019 indoor and outdoor seasons, and again after the 2020 indoor season. Kineke Alexander is the only other Hawkeye in school history to earn USTFCCCA regional honors (2007).

Woody led Iowa to the 2021 Big Ten Outdoor Championship on May 16. The Hawkeyes scored a school-record 127.5 points, 33 points in front of second-place Michigan. The outdoor title was the second straight for Iowa, who won the 2019 championship in Iowa City, and completed in the 2021 indoor-outdoor Big Ten championship sweep. The Hawkeyes had 15 medalists and crowned two Big Ten champions. Jaylan McConico won the 110-meter hurdles and Jamal Britt won the 400-meter hurdles.

Iowa has 10 entries on the men’s side at the 2021 NCAA Outdoor Championships, including eight individual events and two relays. The men’s 400-meter relay is making its eighth straight trip to the NCAA Championships. The Hawkeye men are ranked 15th in the national rating’s index and first in the Midwest Region.

Tausaga won the Big Ten title in discus for the fourth straight year. She became the first Hawkeye in program history to win four Big Ten gold medals is the same event. Tausaga placed first in the shot put at the NCAA West Regional and was runner-up in discus. She qualified for the 2021 NCAA Championships in both events. Tausaga is a four-time outdoor All-American and the defending national champion in discus. She is the No. 2 seed in both shot put and discus.

Woody and Tausaga lead the Hawkeyes to the 2021 NCAA Outdoor Championships on June 9-12 in Eugene, Oregon. The meet is streamed live at Watch ESPN. Links to live results and video are available at hawkeyesports.com/tracklive.
