Jordan Bohannon commits to Hawkeyes

It took four tries, but another member of the Bohannon family is finally going to be a Hawkeye.

Linn-Mar senior Jordan Bohannon has accepted an offer from Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery to play basketball for the Hawkeyes, Linn-Mar Coach Chris Robertson confirmed Friday morning.

Gordy Bohannon played quarterback at Iowa during Hayden Fry's early years with the Hawkeyes, but his three eldest sons - all basketball players - went elsewhere for their college careers.

Jason Bohannon played at Wisconsin, Zach Bohannon played at Air Force and Wisconsin, and Matt Bohannon is currently a senior at the University of Northern Iowa. Now their kid brother will be a Hawkeye.

"He called me last night about 6 o'clock or so," Robertson said. "He had just gotten off the phone with Coach McCaffery and was getting ready to call back to accept. I know it's kind of been in the works the last couple of months, but it finally came to an end yesterday."

Bohannon shared the news on his Twitter account Friday morning. "I am extremely blessed and excited to announce that I have committed to play basketball at the University of Iowa," he wrote.

Broghammer leads Linn-Mar swimmers

Jenks featured in Running Times

Stephanie Jenks is a cover girl.

The distance star from Linn-Mar High School is featured in the new edition of Running Times, a magazine devoted to running and everything that goes with it.

Jenks is pictured on the cover of the magazine and is the subject of a two-page article, complete with four more pictures and her training log for a typical week.

The title of the article is "A Balanced Approach," and explains how Jenks used the triathlon to help further her running career. Jenks won the silver medal in the triathlon at the Junior Olympics in China last summer, but she's put the triathlon aside to focus on running.
