October 24th

Hawk Talk

There were at least three things I wanted to see Saturday during Iowa’s homecoming game with Indiana.
1. Score over 40 points
2. Get the tight ends involved.
3. Get the starters out in the fourth quarter and play some reserves.
4. Okay, I know I said three, but also I wanted to see if A.J. Derby would see the field at linebacker as was reported all week.
Iowa did score 45 points in their 45-24 victory.
The tight ends only caught three passes, two by Zach Derby and one by Brad Herman but Brad’s catch was for a touchdown, the first of his career.

Before continuing this ghost story, I’m compelled to point out that everything I’ve related up to now has been just facts.

Synergy in motion

By Lori Lindner
North Liberty Leader
NORTH LIBERTY– There is a natural synergy created when combining the dedication of two successful Olympic gymnasts, the expert guidance of one long-time gymnastics instructor and the ardent enthusiasm kids naturally have to run, roll and jump.
Co-owners Alexandre Kolyvanov and Dmitri Trouch found a fitting name, then, for North Liberty’s new gymnastics club.
