Track and Field Update and Random Links


Five Cyclones ran in the first day of the NCAA Championships at Drake Stadium yesterday, and I'd have to say the results were mostly positive.  Dani Stack pulled 4th in the 10,000-meter run final, good enough to become Iowa State's first All-American this year.  Betsy Saina did not finish in the same event.  I didn't get to watch that race so I'm not sure what happened there.

Kianna Elahi missed out on qualifying for the finals in the 400-meter hurdles, as she finished 12 with a time of 56.92.  Last qualifying time was 56.49.

Both of the men moved on to the finals in their events, starting with Hilary Bor who finished 10th in the steeplechase.  He'll run in the finals on Friday.  Freshman Edward Kemboi finished with the 3rd best time in the 800-meter prelims, with a blistering time of  1:46.06, which was good enough to break a 30-year old school record in the event.  He'll run in the finals for that event on Friday.

Some fun links after the jump.

The new football facility officially has approval from the Board of Regents, which I've got to say is definitely needed to keep up with others in the Big XII.  

Along those same lines, the new scoreboard seems to be coming along nicely.  (I'm kinda a sucker for webcams.)

If you haven't heard about the conference re-drafting going on at Cowboys Ride for Free, you should check into it.  I doubt anyone picks up Iowa State to anchor their conference, but it should prove to be interesting nonetheless. 

Cowboy Altitude (Wyoming) is doing a similar project, but just looking at what conferences would look like if only geography was taken into consideration.  They started out west with the Pac-12, and its an intriguing thought to see power schools mixed in with relatively smaller schools as well.  I'm just waiting to see what the schools around the Midwest will look like in their scenario.
