Reclaiming the record Iowa State successfully takes back record for largest knockout game By Isaac.Hunt



Provost search:

Committee postpones open forums By Katelynn McCollough Daly staff writer The ISU search committee tasked with finding the new provost interviewed candidates in Minneapolis on Saturday and Sunday. The committee planned to begin hosting open forums for the five finalists on Wednesday and Thursday, but the finalists have not yet been chosen so the forums have been postponed. “We plan to announce finalists in the provost search yet this week, but not in time to make use of the earliest forums,” said Wendy Wintersteen in a statement, who is the chairwoman of the search committee and dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. New dates have not yet been set for the postponed open forums and the three other open forums scheduled for next week also may be subject to change based off the schedules of the chosen finalists. The open forums will offer students, faculty and staff the opportunity to ask any questions concerning the position from the finalists. The search committee began looking for a new provost in February after executive vice president and provost Elizabeth Hoffman made the announcement that she would leave the position. Hoffman had been in the position since 2006. ISU President Steven Leath announced the 17 member search committee in February. The search committee received 130 nominations and 35 applications for the position by the end of March. On-campus interviews were set for Tuesday through April 28 at that time. The names of the finalists will be released before they arrive on campus.

Iowa State reclaimed its title as the world record-holder for the largest game of knockout Tuesday night at Hilton Coliseum. As part of the Veishea tournaments, students and others from the community successfully broke the record it also set last year. Cy the mascot was the first to shoot and Vice President for Student Affairs Tom Hill was the last. With the number 571 safely pinned to his chest, Hill helped the students break the previous record by almost 150. Just last year, Iowa State set the record, only to have it quickly taken by Grace College. “We were pretty disappointed to see that,” said tournaments co-chairman Jake Smith, senior in mechanical engineering. “Before we even officially made it on the Guinness website, this other college had broken it and taken it from us.” When plans were being made for tournaments at the beginning of the year, the committee members knew they would schedule another attempt to try and bring the record back to Ames. Brian Capesius, graduate student in business administration who had the idea last year for the knockout game, also co-chaired the event this year. The goal, set at 1,000, may seem large to some, but it was a realistic goal to those who planned the event. “It’s tough to tell,” Capesius said. “We got 360 last year in the middle of a blizzard. We thought the nice weather and Veishea week [would help]. We thought 1,000 would be awesome to put in the record book.” Iowa State broke the record previously held by Buick, of General Motors, which hosted its event in New Orleans during the NCAA men’s Final Four. Two players with NCAA tournament experience were part of the record. Cyclones Melvin Ejim and Austin

Sexual assault awareness

Clothesline Project airs dirty laundry By Elizabeth.Holmgren

As students shuffled across Central Campus on Tuesday, they may have noticed an unusual sight: a row of T-shirts hanging on a clothesline outside the Sloss House.

No, the Margaret Sloss Women’s Center did not decide to do a midday load of laundry. These shirts were hung in an effort to raise awareness of sexual assault. The Margaret Sloss Women’s Center teamed up with the Assault Care Center Extending Shelter and Support in order to host the annual Clothesline

Project, a project dedicated to informing students about the issues of sexual violence. “The idea behind the Clothesline Project is to air out the dirty laundry that no one wants to talk about and to support victims of sexual assault,” said Annie

Education school to begin operation in July By Thaddeus.Mast Iowa State’s new School of Education is slated to officially begin operation on July 1. A forum Tuesday informed the public and answered any questions posed. One of the main topics discussed was the renovation of Lagomarcino Hall, where the school will be housed. “We have $2.8 million to do some renovations to the School of Education,” said Pamela White, dean of the College of Human Sciences. Samuel Stagg, an employee of Haila Architecture, explained the company is currently “at the end of

the pre-design, and we will be entering the schematic design at the end of the month. We think the construction process will begin in January 2013.” The project is scheduled to conclude at the end of 2013, with the renovations focusing on creating space for students and staff, as well as possibly expanding the current cafe. “We intend to create space that brings people together and can be used to study,” said Dan Robinson, School of Education Implementation Committee co-chairman. Due to the large cost of the renovation, the Board of Regents is involved, which may slow down the process. The School of Education will absorb the University Teacher

Education Program, which is to be renamed Teacher Education Services. Academic programs and services currently offered by curriculum, instruction and educational leadership and policy studies departments will continue under the school, but without departmental divisions. Other research and teaching groups are to be included as well. “People were finding it difficult to know who to go to with a problem,” White said. White said the new structure of the school will create “enhanced visibility across campus, enhanced visibility across the state and enhanced visibility all across the United States” for the program.

The structure also will greatly improve the communication between faculty and staff, who are now separated between different departments. The changes that will be made, however, will not affect current students much, if at all. “Programs will remain as they are, faculty assignments will remain as they are,” said Carl Smith, School of Education Implementation Committee co-chairman. Course names are to go unchanged as well. “It would not be fair for students to transition mid-stream,” agreed Robinson. White described it as a “soft opening” with no major changes taking place in the near future, but over the

Hill spoke about old traditions such as cherry pies and the parade, which he proclaimed to be his personal favorite activity of the week. Near the end of his welcoming statement, he took time to thank all the students who had helped with and planned all of the events for the celebration and how he was excited for the rest of the week. “It’s an exciting time to be on campus,” Hill said. “I’m eager to see students from all corners of the campus participate in this week’s activities.” Unfortunately, Leath was not able to make it to the opening ceremony, but he left a video in which he commended the students for their hard work and planning, and he said he was looking forward to participating in all aspects of his first Veishea. Following Leath’s address, Hoiberg took the stage as the keynote speaker and said it was a tremendous honor to help kick off Veishea. Hoiberg added to his starting remarks that while growing up, Veishea was one of the biggest events he looked forward to every year besides Christmas. He also commented on how he grew

Whipple, an intern at ACCESS. The hanging T-shirts provide a visual representation and contain personal words from sexual assault survivors. Survivors are invited to the Sloss House and are given the opportunity to decorate an T-shirt as a form of art therapy. “We hope that survivors of sexual assault will find empowerment and community in this project,” said Petey Peterson, graduate assistant and equity and social justice educator. The Clothesline Project is a nationwide project that has been held annually on many college campuses since 1990. The ACCESS facility of Ames has been a part of this project since 1998, and the trend in recent years has been to host the project on the ISU campus. Because of Iowa State’s involvement, steps have been taken to revamp the program to make it more visible and effective among ISU students.

up three blocks from campus and how he loved going to the parade every year and scarfing down four cherry pies before it started. Hoiberg also offered some advice to the whole student body on how to behave during the week. “The biggest thing I encourage you to do is to be safe,” Hoiberg said. “I also encourage you to get the word out to keep this a safe event.” After speaking about some more of his favorite Veishea moments, Hoiberg began to talk about the knockout contest. “If you win the knockout contest, stop by my office afterward, I have one scholarship left,” Hoiberg joked. After Hoiberg’s address to students, advisers and groups were recognized during the awards part of the program. During closing remarks, Hill thanked all of the student organizers and all who had received awards for their positive impact on the ISU community. Again, he reminded the audience that Veishea was a whole lot of fun. “I wish all of you a fantastic Veishea; we’re going to have a blast,” Hill said. “You don’t want to be on the other side of the spectrum when someone asks you, ‘Where were you during Veishea 2012?’”

“We want to do more than raise awareness. We want to strive for more understanding,” Peterson said. “Our goal is to strive for an understanding that sexual assault is a reality and to create the passion needed to change this.” Also present at the Sloss House on Tuesday was Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity’s philanthropy These Hands Don’t Hurt, an event in which individuals may pledge to end sexual violence. “These Hands Don’t Hurt works hand in hand with the Margaret Sloss Women’s Center to help raise awareness of sexual assault and at the same time raise money for the ACCESS center,” said Nathan George, member of Alpha Kappa Lambda. The Margaret Sloss Women’s Center encourages students to get involved with the sexual assault awareness effort. Students are invited to volunteer at the Women’s Center or at ACCESS. Above all, education on the topic is highly encouraged.

Symposium encourages public speaking By Elizabeth.Polsdofer More than 100 ISU students put on their business professional best to present mentored research projects in a low-pressure public speaking engagement at the Symposium of Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression. The projects were presented Tuesday and ranged from genetics, engineering and mathematics to fashion design, psychology and business. Each project displayed the technical and minute details of undergraduate research in addition to weeks of careful preparation for the symposium presentation. In order to enter in the symposium, students needed to fill out an application process and

then go through a selection process. A key component of the symposium is technical communication as well as engaging a lay audience. Since its start in 2007, the undergraduate research symposium has exploded in numbers and diversity of research subjects presented, with more fine arts and other non-stereotypical types of research emerging each year. “We are at the limits for the number of rooms and number of hours we can use,” said Dana Schumacher, the symposium coordinator. “It’s going to be a challenge [to expand].” The presentation of research material is a visual record of achievement in undergraduate researchers for faculty members to show how education is being passed to the next generation. In order for the research to be accepted at the symposiums, undergraduates need to be

mentored by a professional academic in their given field. Ian Schneider, assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering and a research mentor, cited participation in research as an undergraduate as something that adds to the educational experience at Iowa State. “There is a lot of excitement in the learning process and a huge change of ability from when students enter the lab not knowing much about research or lab techniques,” Schneider said. “The symposium is something that is a little bit more upscale than formal meetings and something for the students to prepare seriously for.” A key component of the symposium is for students to become comfortable with public speaking about their academic research and to be able to communicate effectively to broad

audience. “I definitely feel more comfortable about how academic presentations are structured and feel more comfortable interacting with an audience,” said Chloe Dedic, graduate student in mechanical engineering and a two-year participant of the undergraduate research symposium. “I was extremely nervous last year, and I was just moderately nervous this year.” Looking ahead to next year, Schumacher is concerned about the challenges that come along with having a popular symposium. “If it grows too much more, it will either become more competitive or we will have to rethink the use or how we use the time to expand it,” Schumacher said. “I don’t want it to be tremendously competitive, because I want students to have the experience of presenting research.”

STD campaign prompts students to get tested By Trevor.Werner April is STD Awareness Month. Many may think such a subject doesn’t involve them, but statistics show that one in every two sexually active people will get an STD by age 25 and most won’t ever know it. Get Yourself Tested was a campaign designed by MTV and the Kaiser Family Foundation to help bring awareness about STDs and STD prevention to the world. “MTV has made a sustained commitment to challenging the stigma that prevents countless young people from getting tested for STDs and HIV,” said Jason Rzepka, vice president of MTV Public Affairs in a news release sent on April 9. “We’re proud that GYT has helped drive notable increases in STD testing, but there’s no finish

line in this race, and we will continue to do all we can to help our audience make responsible decisions about their sexual health.” GYT was created as a part of “It’s Your (Sex) Life,” an Emmy and Peabody award-winning public information campaign. It began in 1997 with the partnering of the Kaiser Family Foundation and MTV. The Kaiser Family Foundation is a large-scale, nonprofit organization that focuses on informing the public on major health issues in the United States. “It’s Your (Sex) Life focuses on delaying and reducing sexual activity, talking openly about sexual health issues, using protection and getting tested for HIV and other STDs,” according to the mission statement from the “Its Your (Sex) Life” website. The GYT Campaign encourages STD testing as an act of pride, not shame, and moves to open

up discussions about spreading the word about STDs and the campaign. This campaign launched in 2009, when the high rate of HIV and STD infections continued despite the high level of awareness. It also is attempting to reach a younger generation of people by using shorthand in a way that is familiar and relatable to them. Other partners in this campaign include: the American College Health Association, the American Social Health Association, the Internet and STD Center of Excellence and many more. All are committed to raising awareness about STDs throughout the month of April. “It was kind of awkward when I got myself tested,” said Ryan Peetz, senior in chemical engineering. “But there isn’t really a way to make it less awkward when you go in, but all I had to do was pee in a cup. It wasn’t as bad as everyone

made it out to be.” Doctors have agreed that all STDs are treatable and many of them are completely curable. The tests to determine an STD range from a simple physical examination to a urine or blood sample. But there is no overall tests for STDs; all of them require their own test. According to the official “Get Yourself Tested” website, the reason people don’t get tested can be as simple as fear. It is sometimes believed that if you don’t have any physical symptoms then you can’t have an STD, or, if you do have symptoms, they will just go away on their own. “I’ve never gotten myself tested,” said Wheaton Shroeder, sophomore in bioinformatics and computational biology. “I always believed my partners when they said they had been tested for these things.”

>>KNOCKOUT.p1 McBeth both took part in the game. “We were kind of asked to come as a team by coach [Fred] Hoiberg,” McBeth said. “I wasn’t going to play and then Melvin said he was going to play, so I thought I might as well. You don’t get this opportunity very much.” McBeth, in jeans, said he didn’t come prepared to play, but if he came up against his teammate, he would try to beat him. For many others, it was their first shot attempt at Hilton Coliseum. Kaitlin Ungs, freshman in design, and her friends arrived with hopes of putting Iowa State back on top. “I wanted to see if we could actually break this record,” Ungs said. “I thought that there was going to be tons of people here and we would break it by so many.” After an airball, Ungs joked that she felt a bit wimpy, but shooting at Hilton was

still a fun experience. Before the event began, the rules to the completion were explained. Knockout is a game that consists of participants lining up behind the freethrow line. One player shoots the ball from the line. After they have shot, the player behind them is allowed to begin shooting as well. If the second player makes a basket before the one ahead of him, the first player is “knocked out” of the game. This process continues until there is one person left. Michael Wauters was that one person after 2 hours and 48 minutes and 32 rounds. Several schools, including George Washington University, Utah State and James Madison, have held the record in the past, which was started at Pine Creek High School in 2010. Iowa State held the record after James Madison. Grace College took the reins as

leader for almost a year before the Buick event. With the boosts from social networking such as Facebook invites and flyers around campus, the word was spreading about the event. “We realized last year we didn’t quite advertise it as well as we could have,” Smith said. “At the beginning of this year, we talked to some people who said, ‘That sounds like fun, I never even heard about it last year.’ This year we really pushed it. Every Iowa State student should have heard of the event.” Students at the University of Connecticut attempted the record this past weekend and failed. Matt McDonough, sports editor for the Daily Campus at Connecticut, said the turnout was only about a third of what they needed to break the record. “Hopefully, we break [the record],” Smith said before the event. “We beat UConn in everything so far this year.”

Holding hands leads to babies? Maybe in Tennessee Sometimes something happens and you can’t help but ask, “What the hell?” That’s the case in Tennessee this past week. In a 29-1 vote, the Senate down there chose to amend its abstinence-based sex ed laws to include language that expressly prohibits teachers from discussing “any gateway sexual activity ... that encourages students to experiment with non-coital sexual activity.” Say what? The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Jack Johnson (no, we didn’t make that up), said “‘Abstinence’ means from all of these

activities, and we want to promote that ... What we do want to communicate to the kids is that the best choice is abstinence.” So let’s get this straight: The state of Tennessee wants kids to abstain from any “gateway sexual activity.” Gateway sexual activity? What does that even mean? Apparently holding hands and kissing are sinful in the Volunteer State now. Don’t touch each other, kids — you might get pregnant! That’s reminiscent of the old “you can get AIDS from a toilet seat” myth. Hmmm, think you can get

pregnant from a toilet seat in Tennessee? Anyway, Tennessee lawmakers call this program of theirs “family life education.” Seems that “sex” is a bad word and is even worse when connected with another apparently naughty word: “education.” We wonder just what they want kids to do, sit silently in seats with blindfolds and ear plugs in? Because, you know, we wouldn’t want kids seeing each other and thinking somebody in class is cute. Oh, no. Nor would we want them talking to each other, because talking leads to liking, and

everybody knows liking leads to babies. At least one senator in Tennessee is eating with more than one chopstick. Beverly Marrero, God bless her, was the sole dissenter on this. “I think all of us realize that abstinence is the absolutely only way to prevent any kind of sexually transmitted disease,” she said. “However, I think the young people who need education are the ones who are not always getting our advice.” Wait, back up. You mean, kids do stupid things? Say it isn’t so! As Marrero pointed out,

nobody is saying abstinence is a bad idea. The point is simply that it doesn’t work for a large number of kids, so we need to teach all kids that if they choose to have sex, there are ways to do it safer to reduce risks of disease or pregnancy. We’re all for the government staying out of personal decisions and family life, but when it comes to something that has such far-reaching public implications, such as unwanted children, higher demand for social services or spreading disease, then maybe, just maybe, the government ought to play a role.

Protect yourself this Veishea week Learn rights granted to you by Bill of Rights to avoid falling victim to coercion


eishea is coming up, and if you’ve experienced one before, you know just how busy it is around here — including for the police. During Veishea, the police have every reason to be on heightened alert, and they stop and talk to people they might not otherwise have had desire to speak to at any other time. People have been murdered during Veishea after all, not to mention we’ve had riots and scores of other disturbances ranging from music played too loudly to fights and sexual assaults. As the chances you will have contact with the police for some reason will be higher this week, let’s take some time to review our rights. Mind you, I’m not an attorney (yet), but I do have experience in law enforcement prior to coming to Iowa State as a student. So take this advice for what it’s worth, and consult an attorney if you have questions. The very first thing to remember is that you have the right to remain silent. This is protected by the Fifth Amendment and further protected by the Miranda warning that everybody knows. You are under no obligation to speak to police for any reason whatsoever. The Supreme Court has ruled that police may ask for your ID and you may be required to give it to them or tell them who you are, but beyond that, you don’t have to answer any questions. The police are allowed to detain you temporarily, to ascertain your identity and ask some basic questions for safety and general preinvestigatory reasons. If they have a reasonable factual basis to suspect you are up to something illegal, police may also noninvasively pat you down to determine whether you are carrying a weapon. During this pat-down, the police may not dig into your pockets or reach under your clothing unless they feel what may be a weapon, after which they have the authority to identify the object. These types of stops must be brief, and the police may not detain you any longer than reasonably necessary without further suspicions or cause. You have the right to an attorney. This right is protected by both the Sixth Amendment right to counsel for criminal proceedings and the Miranda protection to consult with an attorney after you have been taken into custody but before you have been indicted. The key here is the definition of “custody.” The Supreme Court defines being in custody as being deprived of your freedoms in any significant way. In other words, if you cannot stop the police contact and leave, you are in custody even if they don’t expressly say so. Your perception is important in matters of custody, however. If you’re surrounded by half a dozen officers, even if they think you’re free to go, the court considers that a coercive environment in which you may feel your freedom to walk away has been deprived because of the overwhelming presence of the authorities. Therefore, you may be perfectly OK to assert your rights, at which point the police either need to let you go or arrest you. Desires to invoke your right to remain silent or to speak with an attorney must be clearly and expressly stated. If you’re indecisive, and say, for example, “I wonder if I should talk to a lawyer,” it doesn’t count and above all, don’t count on the officer asking for clarification. Just be definitive and say, “I want to speak to an attorney,” or “I do not wish to speak to you at this time.” If you perceive you need to invoke one right,

File photo: Kelsey Kremer/Iowa State Daily Members of the Iowa State Patrol begin to arrest Occupy Iowa protesters after they refused to leave the State Capitol complex at the 11 p.m. curfew on Oct. 9, 2011. Thirty-two people including two minors were arrested. As police crack down around campus and the surrounding areas during Veishea week, know how to protect yourself by learning the rights afforded to you by the Bill of Rights.

By Barry.Snell you probably ought to invoke both. If you assert your rights, be prepared to continue asserting them, no matter what happens. The police have been trained well and the courts give them a wide berth of latitude. So assert your rights often and as necessary. Do so even if you don’t think it’s necessary because it can’t possibly hurt. Now, you may be thinking you’re a good person and you won’t ever have to worry about being questioned by the police, or worse, getting arrested. However, that’s definitely not the case. The police officers may not be your friend, even if they act like it. They are part of an investigative body, a tool for the prosecution. Remember the Miranda warning? “Anything you say can and will be used against you.” Against you, not for you. Even if you’re completely innocent, exculpatory evidence that may help you that was obtained during police questioning may be considered hearsay and thus not allowable evidence at all. You also should remember, even if your rights have been violated, if you make the mistake of wanting to testify on your own behalf, what you say may well be used to impeach your credibility. So shut your mouth when dealing with police officers. The police are professionals at what they do. In their investigatory capacity, their very job is to make you say and do things they can use against you for the purposes of convicting you. You are an amateur, with little or no experience in dealing with the police. Who do you think is going to prevail? Even if you are completely innocent, here’s

There are literally tens of thousands of state and federal criminal laws on the books. Do you know what they all are? Would you bet your life you’re not violating any of them? but one example as to how you can go wrong in matters with the police: Let’s say some guy gets beat up at a party at midnight and the suspect flees. The police believe you know the victim and may have been around, so they ask you about it. You went to another party at 11 p.m. though, so you weren’t there when the fight happened an hour later. However, another one of your friends saw you there earlier and thought you were still around for the fight. You tell the police you were gone by that point, but your friend already told the police you were there. Now you’re a liar and a suspect, congratulations. There are infinite possibilities, so just remember: When the police are around, even if you’re innocent as a newborn baby, keep your mouth shut. The police have lots of dirty tricks. They can lie to you, they can pretend to be your friend, they can phrase questions as statements, you name it. One dirty trick the police were fond of in my neck of the woods was going to someone’s house where there was partying and drinking and asking to speak with those in attendance. At that point, the subjects were on private property and perfectly legal. However, the officers would ask a person to come out to the street where it was quieter to talk. Once the subject stepped foot off the property and onto city property, the police would arrest them for public intoxication. Or assume you get pulled over and the police say something like, “I’m going to search your vehicle now, OK?” That sounds an awful lot

like a statement of fact that you just need to go along with, but they’re really asking for your permission. Do not, under any circumstances, give the police permission to search your vehicle. This is your Fourth Amendment right. If the police have probable cause, they can search your vehicle anyway. If they have to ask, they’re just fishing. Can you absolutely, positively guarantee you have nothing to hide in your vehicle? There are literally tens of thousands of state and federal criminal laws on the books. Do you know what they all are? Would you bet your life you’re not violating any of them or that one of the passengers in your vehicle doesn’t have drugs in their possession? No matter your innocence, the police can always find something you’re guilty of. Always say no to searches of your vehicle and your home. In the end, the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth amendments and your Miranda rights are not shelters for the guilty. According to the Supreme Court, they exist “to protect the innocent who otherwise might be ensnared by ambiguous circumstances. Truthful responses of an innocent witness ... may provide the government with incriminating evidence from the speaker’s own mouth.” Want to be an American? Know and assert your rights, and take care of yourself this Veishea.

Former ISU coach takes job at South Dakota State By Jake Calhoun Daily staff writer Former ISU associate wrestling coach Chris Bono has been hired as the new coach at Bono South Dakota State. Bono was an associate coach at Iowa State from 1997 to 2005 before taking over the program at TennesseeChattanooga for three seasons. In 2009, he joined ISU coach Kevin Jackson’s staff for a season before stepping down to pursue non-wrestling opportunities. “Chris was selected from an outstanding pool of candidates,” said SDSU Athletic Director Justin Sell to themat. com. “Chris brings tremendous credentials both as an athlete and a coach and we are excited about the passion he will bring for wrestling in support of our student-athletes.” Bono was a three-time All-American at Iowa State, winning a national title at 150 pounds in 1996 and placing second in 1997. He will be taking over a Jackrabbits program that has won just one of its last 30 Western Wrestling Conference duals. “I’d like to thank the search committee and Justin Sell for this opportunity,” Bono said. “It’s something I’m excited about and I am really fired up to get the program back on the map.”

Benton “That was a good feeling to be recognized and be seen by ‘America’s Team,’” Benton said. “It’s the team that I grew up watching, and probably in the next two or three weeks, I could find out that I’ll be going to camp with them.” Benton, a native of Arlington, Texas, worked out along with 13 other defensive back prospects on the field at Cowboys Stadium in front of team owner Jerry Jones, other team personnel and even his parents, who were allowed to view the workout and tour the $1 billion facility. “It’s so big that I couldn’t really understand why a stadium had to be that big,” Benton said. “It just had me amazed, but it was a business trip, so I couldn’t be all struck down and all that.

Practice prepares Cyclones for busy weekend

By Tom Withers The Associated Press CLEVELAND — Johnny Damon has left the on-deck circle. He’s officially with the Cleveland Indians. The 38-year-old outfielder signed a minor league contract on Tuesday, the next step before he joins the major league club and possibly moves into a permanent spot in left field. The sides agreed on a $1.25 million deal last week, when the Indians were off to a sluggish start with a team batting average below .200. However, general manager Chris Antonetti said he had been in talks with Damon and his agent Scott Boras long before the Indians opened the season at 1-4.

This weekend, the ISU track and field team will be covering three meets in California. With a busy weekend ahead, athletes Ihmels have been having an eventful week of practice as well. Coach Corey Ihmels said with the spring semester, things can seem a little more hectic Saina than usual. Even though there is a quick turnaround from indoor track to outdoor track, school can put a little more stress on the athletes. “As soon as [the athletes] get done with indoors, it’s over and done,” Ihmels said. “With finals coming up on us, everything seems crammed in.”

>>IHMELS.p9 Ihmels said school affects the athletes’ lives and it is important to responsibly balance the role of the student-athlete. For the past few weeks, the ISU trackand-field team has been traveling all over the Western portion of the country. With meets in Arizona and California, athletes have had to balance academics with competition. “It’s a little unsettling as a coach to squeeze those things in because you’re a little worried about how they’re going to react,” Ihmels said. “But I think we’re headed in a good place.” The sprints squad had a busy yet successful weekend, taking gold in the women’s 400-meter hurdles and the 400-meter dash. Sprints coach Nate Wiens said he was looking forward to upbeat workouts this week. “Most of our top people didn’t compete and travel this weekend, they just stayed home and trained,” Wiens said. “We’re actually able to get after it a little bit this week.” With a focused and concentrated state of mind intact, Wiens stressed that rest and recovery still will be in store for the athletes in the

weeks of training to come. “We do good training in between, but there’s also plenty of time for rest,” Wiens said. “[The athletes’] bodies are very finely tuned right now, so you don’t really want to do too much.” For one athlete in particular, junior Betsy Saina has been “off the grid” as far as competing goes. Saina decided to redshirt her junior outdoor track season. During her off time, she said she has been staying in shape, as well as catching up and studying her school work. “Training has been going really well,” Saina said. “So far I like it: no racing, just training.” It has been more than a month since Saina last competed in — and won — the women’s 5,000-meter run at the NCAA Indoor Championships. In her time away from competition, Saina has managed to stay physically and mentally strong in her training. “Pretty much what I have been doing is a really fast workout that is just like the race, at the race pace,” Saina said. “It helps me feel like I’m in a race.” The weekend’s competition starts Thursday

hard on himself and was that way Saturday with the long jump, but that is how he feels he was able to come to Iowa State and compete at such a high level. Sprints coach Nate Wiens said the whole reason he recruited Efkamp was because of the solid attitude he saw from him with never being satisfied with anything less than his best. “’I’m just not going to lose,’” Wiens said of the attitude he saw from Efkamp. “I think that was a little bit of what our team needed at the time. I like the dimension that his personality brings to the team.” Efkamp said that after being slightly disappointed with how the long jump went, he was happy to come back and run the 200-meter dash, winning the event with a time

of 21.38. Efkamp also said it was nice to have an overcast day to run in because it is Wiens not always good when the sun is beating down on you. “It was my first time ever running Efkamp the 200,” Efkamp said. “Coach [Wiens] was pretty excited, but I’m just going to keep trying different events to see where I can score the most points for the team when it comes conference time.” Wiens said he just put Efkamp in the 200-meter dash to see what he could do in that event and was pleased to see him run that kind of time. it for the rest of this experience I’m going through right now,” Benton said. With only eight days until the first day of the NFL draft, Benton does not have any other workouts with NFL teams scheduled. However, he is hopeful that the workout in Dallas — and the twice-daily workouts he and ISU teammate Leonard Johnson have committed to since competing at ISU pro day on March 20 — will have him ready to battle for a spot on a NFL roster. “Everything that I did [in Dallas], I was ready for it because I was doing workouts to the highest level that Leonard and I have doing since the pro day,” Benton said.

I think that was a little bit of what our team needed at the time. I like the dimension that his personality brings to the team.” Nate Wiens “I knew he could do it, but then when he did it, you’re not shocked, but you just know he can do it, but he still has to go out and actually get it done,” Wiens said. “We just kind put down what we knew he was capable of.” Efkamp said he will be heading to the Mt. SAC Relays and will compete in the 400-meter hurdles, the 200-meter dash and the long jump. Benton and Johnson are among a group of nine former ISU players who have stayed in Ames since the Pinstripe Bowl to prepare for an opportunity to play professionally. “They’re fun guys to be around,” said defensive back Deon Broomfield. “Just to have them there for advice on things, especially Leonard talking about the next level and giving guys advice on how to go different routes on that, it’s good to have them still around for the time being.” The secondary tandem’s workouts have changed since completing their pro day tests, but their goals have remained the same. “We feel like somebody is working, so if we don’t feel like we are working, then somebody else is getting better than us and we don’t want that,” Benton said. “We want to get into [preseason] camp letting people know that we’ve been working and that we’ve been trying to get into this profession for a long time and we just love this game.” In his first year starting at strong safety, Benton led the Cyclones with three interceptions last season, but he said he needs to develop his ability to read pass plays versus run plays, be lower in and stay in his backpedal and improve his coverage skills across the middle of the field. While Benton did see snaps at cornerback early in his college career, he’s been told by scouts that he projects as either a nickelback or safety in the pros. “I pretty much think I’m a good nickelback, but I want to learn how to play safety also so even if there’s no nickel package on the field, I can still play safety,” Benton said. While Benton believes Johnson, who is projected to be a mid-round selection, is “the best cornerback in the draft,” Benton himself is thought by many as a player who will have to enter the league as an undrafted free agent. Although, the 2011 ISU co-captain has confidence in his versatility in the secondary and his “all in” attitude will give him the chance to make an NFL squad. “I’m confident I’m going to make a camp and I’m confident that wherever I go, I’m going to stay on the team and not going to make anyone regret picking me up for their team if I don’t get drafted,” Benton said. The NFL draft begins with the first-round selections on April 26, continues with rounds two and three on April 27 and the fourth through seventh rounds on April 28.

Rivalry ups ante following 4-game losing skid By Dan.Cole It’s the Hawkeyes. That fact is sure to add intensity and a “must-win” vibe to any competition. Softball certainly is no exception. “Rivalry is always huge,” said ISU coach Stacy Gemeinhardt-Cesler. “It’s always fun to play them and even more fun to beat them.” The Hawkeyes (17-21, 7-5 Big Ten) make their way to Ames on Wednesday afternoon to face the ISU softball team in this season’s installment of the Iowa Corn CyHawk Series. “We’re all excited to play them,” said ISU senior Dalyn Varela. “It’s a big game. Biggest game of our year for us.” The Cyclones (12-28, 1-11 Big 12) were swept in a threegame series at Oklahoma State this past weekend and are currently riding a four-game losing streak. ISU showed signs of fight during the weekend, losing by a combined total of only six runs over the three games. “I thought we did really

well, but we just did a couple things wrong that cost us the game,” said ISU sophomore Sara Davison. Iowa took two out of three games against Nebraska this past weekend. The Cyclones lead the all-time series against the Hawkeyes by a 38-34-1 mark. The rivals met in Tempe, Ariz., earlier this season, where Iowa won 26-5. That was then. This is now. “We’ve come a long way since [Tempe] as a team,” Varela said. “We’re hitting a lot better, we’re making the plays we need to make and we’re keeping our pitchers up when they need to be.” Iowa, while only 10th in the conference in team batting with a .254 average, ranks third in team pitching with a 2.63 ERA. Hawkeye pitcher Kayla Massey threw a five-inning complete game in the last meeting with the Cyclones. Massey (8-9) has pitched 15 complete games this year and currently owns a 2.65 ERA. “When we first faced

[Massey], she was probably the best that we had seen at that point,” Davison said. “But now we’ve seen a lot of really good pitching and were starting to adjust to it, so it’ll be a lot different game.” Massey and Chelsea Lyon have combined to pitch 249.2 of 250.0 innings for Iowa this season. Lyon also has thrown 15 complete games this season and owns a 2.62 ERA. “They’re both good pitchers,” Gemeinhardt-Cesler said of Massey and Lyons. “Both

have good screwballs; I think that they both spot the ball well.” Offensively, freshman Megan Blank and senior Katie Keim lead the Hawkeyes. Blank leads the Big Ten in batting with a .417 average, in doubles with 13 and in triples with four. Keim is batting .325 and leads the team in home runs with five and RBIs with 30. Wednesday’s game is slated to begin at 4:30 p.m. at the Southwest Athletic Complex in Ames.

Traditional chicken and potatoes

As busy college students, we all know it’s not easy to get a decent meal in three times a day. Let the grocery store do the work for you by picking up a ready-to-eat roasted chicken. You can keep it in the fridge for a few days and use it to make easy meals until it’s gone. Start with these three tasty ideas.

ƒƒ 1 serving of white or dark meat roasted chicken ƒƒ 5 small golden or red potatoes ƒƒ 1 tablespoon olive oil ƒƒ Salt, pepper, garlic powder and rosemary to taste Preheat oven to 425 degrees F Wash and quarter potatoes Toss with oil and seasonings and bake for about 30 minutes Serve with chicken and enjoy

This week’s reader’s choice poll: What’s your favorite flavor of cake?

Photos: Claire Powell/AmesEats Flavors

Banana-chocolate ice cream By Katie Squires AmesEats Flavors writer

The winner: Chocolate Visit to vote for your favorite cake flavor.

There is a wide spectrum of flavors that exist in the ice cream world, and it seems like they are getting further and further out there. Some flavors can include pistachio, bacon, monster cookie, chili pepper, spaghetti and cheese and even spleen! When banana ice cream is mentioned, it seems pretty normal.

However, here is a recipe that is made from frozen bananas, literally banana ice cream. The little bit of fat gives it the ability to cream together instead of crumble, and because it only contains bananas, this is an ideal treat for those with a gluten intolerance or celiac disease, diabetes, vegan, lactose intolerance and those of us who are watching our weight. Also, it is a great way to get rid of some old bananas.

Directions ƒƒ Extra-ripe bananas ƒƒ Add-ins (yogurt, honey, sprinkles, candy — we used peanut butter and chocolate chips) ƒƒ Peel your bananas and cut them into small pieces. Freeze for just 1 or 2 hours on a plate. ƒƒ Blend in a food processer or blender, scraping down the bowl when they stick. ƒƒ Add in any ingredients of your choice for flavor and texture enhancement.
