Muhl welcomes new team at Kirkwood

Amber Timmins collected 28 assists. Cali Beyer had 22 digs.


Petersen takes charge at Kirkwood

Bryan Petersen is technically the "interim" head coach of the Kirkwood men's basketball team, but there's no doubt who was in charge Tuesday when the Eagles began preseason drills at Johnson Hall.

Doug Wagemester stepped aside as the head coach after last season and Petersen, one of his assistants, was quickly named to lead the team this season.  Wagemester, the school's athletic director, will decide at some point whether he wants to coach the team again next year or not.

In the meantime, Petersen is running the club on his own, although Wagemester's office is just a few steps away if he wants any advice.

Petersen, 26, played for Wagemester at Kirkwood and was a starting point guard at Iowa State. He knows the system and was fully in charge Tuesday.
