Iowa Western Reivers


Half Marathon Nationals - Gulf Shores Alabama

The weather was beautiful and the scenery great as the Reivers ended the season in Gulf Shores, Alabama for the National Half Marathon.  The top spot went to sophomore Shanieke Watson as she earned All- American Honorable Mention for her 6th. place finish out of 58 runners in the event (1:25:11). The women's team ended up 7th. overall.  The top men's spot was earned by transfer Vincent Lalang. He finished 26th. in the field of 58 runners (1:17:03).  The mens team finished 9th.  The Reiver distance team will earn some much needed time off and will resume competition January 7, 2017. The meet will be hosted by Doane College.
