CEDAR RAPIDS, IA-- America Reads is a national challenge to improve literacy in elementary school age children. Cedar Rapids metro area school districts celebrated the importance of reading October 16 & 17, 2014. The Kirkwood Men's Basketball team accepted the challenge and reads to students at Prairie Ridge Elementary.

AMERICA READS: Reading is Contagious is a local project designed to focus community attention on the importance of reading aloud to young children to increase literacy. Community members visit elementary classrooms to read a favorite story. This annual October event was introduced in 1997 by the Cedar Rapids Community School District Volunteer Program and expanded over the next few years to include all other metro area school districts.

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA-- Kirkwood Eagle Men's Basketball is preparing for the upcoming season. Head coach Bryan Petersen spoke about the team's preparedness. "We are currently going through our pre-season workouts. We are working on getting better as a team. We split our workouts into basketball skill workouts, conditioning, agility, weight training and playing as a group. Our goal this fall is to compete every day in everything we do," said Petersen.

"Last year we had a very solid season.  We fell short of our goals, but the team worked throughout the season to play our best basketball at the end of the year.  We have had a great offseason with our returning players working very hard and our incoming players are following their lead." Petersen noted. Kirkwood Men's Basketball finished 3rd in the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference with a record of 20-10 (10-4 ICCAC) and were ranked as high as 13th in the January 7th NJCAA Top 20 Poll.
