Governor Weighs in on State Track Spectators Limits

DES MOINES, Iowa (KCRG) – Gov. Kim Reynolds sent a letter to officials at Drake University regarding the state high school track and field championships, admonishing them to reconsider spectator capacity limits imposed to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The letter said that Drake University’s plan to limit attendance at the outdoor track and field finals to 33% capacity “defies all logic and common sense of what we know—and have learned—about COVID-19. It was sent to Brian Hardin, Drake University’s Director of Athletics, along with the school’s president Marty Martin, the executive directors of the boy’s and girl’s high school athletics organizations in Iowa, and the Polk County Public Health Department.

According to the Iowa High School Athletic Association, there will be two tickets available for each qualifying participant in the session in which they compete.
According to television station KCCI, Hardin replied to Reynolds’ letter, pointing out that the capacity percentage at the meet will be larger than the vast majority of Major League Baseball teams.

Fredrick to Kentucky

Iowa transfer C.J. Fredrick has committed to Kentucky. Fredrick who is from Cincinnati was a high school star at Alexandria Covington Catholic in Kentucky. The 6’3 sophomore guard will have three years of eligibility remaining and will be eligible to play in Lexington next year.
