(Indianola) 2009 Atlantic High School graduate John Cord has done a little bit of everything during his athletic career at Simpson. The senior initially went to Simpson to play basketball and dabbled in baseball for a short time. Most of his success though has come in Track and Field.
Cord won the long jump at the Iowa Conference meet February 23rd with a career best jump of 22-7.75. It was his third conference title as he had previously taken top honors in the triple-jump as a freshman and javelin as a sophomore.
Also at the conference meet, Simpson's 4X200 meter relay team set a school record. The group is anchored by Adair-Casey graduate Brice Sheeder. They ran 1:30.22.
