Very good season

Hawk Talk

When I look back at the Iowa Hawkeye women’s basketball season, it still amazes me that Lisa Bluder’s team won 27 games. That ties for the second most wins in the history of Hawkeye women’s basketball.
They not only won 27 games, they won three in the Big Ten tournament and got beat by Nebraska in the championship game.
Iowa played with only one player (Bethany Doolittle) over 6-1.
The Hawks saw all five starters score in double figures, had three players coming off the bench and some of the best chemistry on and off the court.

Lady Spartans a close third at WaMaC Super Meet

Girls looking ahead

By Joe Wilkinson
Special to the Economist
VAN HORNE– With 16 teams on the track, the road got tougher for Solon’s girls track team at the WaMaC Super Meet May 8. The top three schools were separated by just eight points, and now set their sights on regional qualifying, and eventually, the state track meet May 22-24 in Des Moines.
Earlier in the week, the Spartans earned another team title, at the Monticello Invitational. With the conference competition, though, the stakes get higher.
