UW Whitewater Names New Football Coach http://www.wrjc.com/sports/uw-whitewater-names-new-football-coach/ http://www.wrjc.com/sports/uw-whitewater-names-new-football-coach/#comments Fri, 30 Jan 2015 20:59:52 +0000 http://www.wrjc.com/?p=103553 More >]]> U-W Whitewater has chosen one of its own as its new head football coach. Defensive assistant Kevin Bullis was named today as the replacement for Lance Leipold — who led the Warhawks to six N-C-A-A Division-Three championships before he became the new coach at Division-One Buffalo.  Bullis was chosen over four other finalists, including a Division-Two head coach.  Bullis was on the staff for seven of Leipold’s eight seasons at Whitewater — and he took over the interim duties while the school searched for a new head coach. Athletic director Amy Edmonds said Bullis’ passion, integrity, and understanding of the student-athlete experience stood out during the search process.  In a statement, Bullis said it was “humbling and exciting” to follow the legacies left by former Whitewater coaches Leipold, Bob Berezowitz (ber-eh’-zo-witz), and the late Forrest Perkins.  Those previous three coaches ran the team for 60 years combined. Bullis said his new players are already getting ready for next season in the weight room — he expects to finalize his staff “in short order.”

Iowa Banged Up As They Prepare For Wisconsin Saturday In Big Ten Mens Basketball http://www.wrjc.com/sports/iowa-banged-up-as-they-prepare-for-wisconsin-saturday-in-big-ten-mens-basketball/ http://www.wrjc.com/sports/iowa-banged-up-as-they-prepare-for-wisconsin-saturday-in-big-ten-mens-basketball/#comments Fri, 30 Jan 2015 20:52:22 +0000 http://www.wrjc.com/?p=103549 More >]]> The Iowa men’s basketball team might be without its best player when it hosts fifth-ranked Wisconsin tomorrow.  Senior Aaron White has not missed a game in his four seasons with the Hawkeyes.  But he missed practice yesterday, and he’s questionable after getting a stinger against Purdue last week which affected both his neck and his right shoulder.  White has been a starter ever since he was a freshman.  This year, he leads Iowa with 15 points and just over six-and-a-half rebounds a game.  The Iowa trainers have fitted White with special padding that he hopes will help. White says he’s been feeling better each day, and he still hopes to be ready to return by tomorrow. One of Iowa’s top bench players, Gabe Olesani, has also been limited at practice this week after hurting his left ankle on Monday.  He’s expected to play against the Badgers, however.  Olesani is Iowa’s third-highest scorer with an eight-and-a-half point average, despite playing only 19 minutes a game.  Iowa recently lost to Wisconsin by 32 points.  The Hawkeyes are 4-and-3 in the Big Ten Conference, and 13-and-7 overall. Wisconsin enters tomorrow’s contest with a 6-and-1 conference mark, and an 18-and-2 record for the season.
