Yesterday was “Championship Saturday” for two of the Central College athletics programs. The Central men’s basketball team won their first-ever Iowa Conference Tournament Championship with a 99-79 rout of Buena Vista University. The win earns the Dutch their first berth in the NCAA Division III Tournament in 15 years.

The Central men’s track and field squad were also champions on the day, as the Dutch cruised to a victory in the Iowa Conference Indoor Championships in Storm Lake; with coach Joe Dunham earning the league’s “Coach of the Year” honor.
