Iowa State football coach Matt Campbell says developing leadership between now and the start of next season will be crucial. The expectations for the Cyclones will be higher than they have been in many years coming off an 8-5 season and a win in the Liberty Bowl. ISU closed out spring drills on Saturday with a scrimmage.

Campbell says the time between now and the start of fall camp is crucial for individual improvement.

To take the next step as a program the offense must improve and Campbell says it starts with the offensive line.

Campbell says that unit did make progress.

Time is running out for the state’s high school track and field athletes as they try to find a window between snowstorms to post a qualifying mark for the Drake Relays. The deadline for qualifying is noon on Thursday.

That’s Relay’s Director Blake Boldon who says while the weather has made qualifying even more difficult he still expects some outstanding marks later this month.

Iowa native Karissa Schweizer is returning to the Drake Relays to chase the record in the 5,000 meter run. The five-time NCAA champion at Missouri is a native of Urbandale and was a standout at Dowling Catholic.
