Weight Training Boosts Regina Football
By Scott Saville, Sports Director and KJ Pilcher, Reporter
The third special series called "The Program" will run this fall, focusing on the Iowa City Regina football team. We have done this twice in the past, covering the Class 3A 2010 Solon Spartans, who won four straight titles, including 2A crowns from 2007-09, and 2003 Class 4A state runner-up Cedar Rapids Washington.
The Regals won the 2A title in 2010 and 2011, adding the 1A championship last season. They are in search of another 1A title this season, attempting to win a fourth straight. Regina opened the season with 42 straight wins, trying to match the state's unbeaten streak of 56 games held by Waterloo East.
"The Program" will include online features at www.iowaprepsports.com and www.kcrg.com, in addition to weekly stories in The Gazette and occasional TV packages on KCRG. Content will include game coverage and a look behind-the-scenes during the season.
We hope you enjoy the in-depth look of one of Eastern Iowa's sports programs.
