IOWA CITY — After dropping their first mid-week game in more than two years the Iowa baseball team returns home on Friday to open a three game Big Ten series against Rutgers. Home field has certainly been an advantage for the Hawkeyes who are 11-1 at Banks Field this season.

That’s Iowa coach Rick Heller who says teams have more of a comfort level at home.

Iowa is 5-4 in the Big Ten and 22-13 overall.




MASON CITY – The NIACC softball team was swept by Ellsworth in a conference twinbill on Thursday.

The Lady Trojans dropped an 8-6 decision to Ellsworth in the opening game and fell 9-6 in eight innings in the nightcap.

The doubleheader was the final home contests for sophomores Elise Powers, Brittany Florea and Kendall Cornick.

NIACC wraps up its regular season Saturday at Iowa Lakes and Sunday at Iowa Central.




IOWA CITY — The Iowa football team used to complete spring drills with an open practice. But with the chance to gain exposure on the Big Ten Network and the hopes of attracting a larger crowd under the lights Hawkeye coach Kirk Ferentz has altered the format as they close out spring practice Friday night.

Ferentz hopes a night game will add to the atmosphere.

Tonight’s spring game starts at 7 o’clock.
