The Johnston boys soccer team is having quite the season so far this year.  The #2 ranked Dragons have outscored their opponents 33-1.  To no surprise,  their roster boasts many Acceleration Iowa athletes.  He’s a few pics of some of the guys from a game against Norwalk last week.  The pictures are from the Des Moines Register.  Picture bellow from top to bottom is Ryan Ingebrand, Mike Siebert, and Joe Fairchild.

A big shoutout to Centennial sophomore Sydney Reysack for qualifying for the Drake Relays in 3 events. Syd has been training at AI since 5th grade and it amazing to see all of her hard work over the years paying off. She will be running the 100m dash, 4×100, and anchoring the sprint medley. Good luck Syd.

There hasn’t been a more dedicated athlete at AI over the past few years than St. Ansgar junior Natalie Halfman. As the track season is now underway it’s exciting to see all of Natalie’s hard work paying off. On Monday Natalie won the 400m, the 800m, was part of the 1st place sprint med team, and her 4×400 team finished 3rd. Keep up the good work Natalie!!
