This week’s Iowa college Players of the Week are Kaila Jackson, WU, and Will Daniels, CC.
Kaila Jackson, junior, Waldorf
It is becoming a habit for Jackson as for the third straight weekend she broke two school records. Jackson broke the Warriors’ record in the 60-meter dash with the fastest time in the North Star Athletic Association this winter, and won the event at the Bethel Gene Glader Classic in 7.89 seconds. The junior was also runner-up in the 200 on Saturday and broke her school record in that event she set a week early with a time of 26.27 – and that was also the fastest time in the NSAA this winter.
Will Daniels, junior, Central
