Prairie relay: '3 babies and grandma'

CEDAR FALLS - They affectionately call her "grandma," and 16-year-old sophomore Hannah Grimm doesn't mind at all.

Compared to the other members of the Cedar Rapids Prairie 4x400 meter relay team, Grimm is the oldest member of the club even though she's just a 10th grader.

All the other runners on the varsity 4x400 are freshmen. "They're all babies," Prairie Coach Chris Perkins said Tuesday, in jest and admiration.

These babies can scoot, although it might be a few years - months? - before they reach full maturity on a track.

Dellamuth helps Prairie shine

CEDAR FALLS - Before they could star at Cedar Rapids Prairie, all three members of the Dellamuth family had to prove they could survive their own fiercely competitive battles at home.

That goes for Madison as well as her two brothers, Austin and Mitchell. The competitive spirit runs deep.

"All three of us have it. Me, my brother and my sister," Austin Dellamuth said Monday during the Dickinson Relays at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls. "We get in fights a lot playing sports."

Two coaching greats ride into the sunset

Metro girls basketball will look, and feel, much different next season.

Two of the greats over the last two decades - and beyond - have stepped down from their head coaching positions. Larry Niemeyer at Jefferson and Dennis Roloff at Kennedy both departed last week.

Perhaps it was fitting that these two fine gentlemen both left within 24 hours of one another, because they are two of the best of friends on and off the court. In fact, Roloff was an assistant coach for several years at Jefferson under Niemeyer, learning many of the finer points of the game. They were lessons he took across town to Kennedy.

MYFA eyes more fields near Cedar River

More popular than it has ever been in its 42-year history, the Metro Youth Football Association program is looking to expand its operation by putting at least three fields in the proposed greenway area on the west side of the Cedar River.

"We absolutely need more fields,” said Roger Gruwell, a member of the MYFA executive board. “We can’t put any more where we’re at, and we think it would be a good thing to have a facility on the west side of town.”

The proposal is in the very early stages, but Cedar Rapids city officials have so far been receptive to the idea.

“Metro Youth Football has been a tremendous organization in our community for a long time,” said Director of Parks and Recreation Julie Sina, who has had two sons and now a grandson in the program. “We’ll try to do everything we can to make it happen. We think it would be very good for the community.”

MYFA board members are scheduled to make a proposal to the parks commission Tuesday morning. They’ve already met with City Manger Jeff Pomeranz and Community Development Director Christine Butterfield.
