Weatherwax, Petermeier Families Provide All-America Walls
AMES, Iowa -- Some of the names are familiar to even casual fans of intercollegiate athletics at Iowa State Univeristy. Fred Hoiberg, Kevin Jackson, Allison Lacey, Troy Davis and Lisa Koll are fresh in the minds of Cyclones everywhere. Now, thanks in part to the generosity of the Mel and Kathy Weatherwax and Craig and Virginia Petermeier families, future fans, including those who have not yet been born, will be conscious of the All-American legacy of Cyclone athletes dating back to football standout Dick Barker in 1919. All-America walls sporting the names of every Iowa State All-American on both sides of the North gates at Jack Trice Stadium was dedicated Saturday in front of a score of former Cyclones, many of who had a place on the wall.
