    Season Outlook
    Dedicated Young Talent Key to Reivers’ Success
    The Reivers finished the 2010 season with a record of 41-15.
    Not only did the Reivers have success on the softball field, they
    again had success in the classroom. The Reivers have been
    nationally recognized for the past eight years with their team
    academics and again finished in the top ten with a sixth place
    finish. They had three Academic All-Americans and all 16 mem-
    bers of the 2010 team received Academic All Region honors.
    The Reivers had three First Team All Region players in Angela
    Jay, Stephanie Schmidt and Bradi Wall. They also had three
    players selected to the Second Team with Luisa Bar, Brooke
    Cronican and Julie Santillanes.

    Lana Ross begins her ninth season as the Reiver head coach
    and has averaged 40 wins over the last eight seasons. Along
    with receiving recognition for their success in the classroom
    the Reivers also earned the honor of being one of the top 20
    teams invited to the NFCA Leadoff Classic in Panama City,
    Florida this March.

    The Reivers played 18 games in the Fall to prepare for a very
    tough 2011 Spring Season. The Reivers finished second in

                     What’s a Reiver?
 People new to Iowa Western frequently ask the question, “What is a Reiver?” The
 simple answer is “River Pirate,” but “Reiver” has a long and colorful history.

 The earliest use of the word was in the Middle Ages when uncivilized English and Scot-
 tish tribesmen battled each other and pillaged people around them. These robbers - or
 reivers - lived in a mountainous area where both future nations would have a common
 border extending from the Irish Sea on the west to the North Sea on the east. These
 arsonists, kidnappers and murderers had representatives from various social strata, from
 impoverished farmers to men who resided in castles. These brigands used the rivers in
 their area to terrorize humanity for 350 years through the reign of Queen Elizabeth I
 and her Scottish successor, James, when Renaissance ideals slowly civilized the ruffians.

 Locally, the term river pirate designated those who attacked Missouri River vessels as
 19th century explorers and settlers used the river to carry various goods to and from
 the new territory. Based on the etymology of the word, reiver, it was a fitting term to
 label the Missouri River plunderers.

 The reiver became associated with Iowa Western Community College when the college
 was just beginning to develop as an institution of higher education. In response to the       The Reiver mascot “Captain Rocky.”
 quest for a mascot in the 1972-73 academic year, Student Senate Treasurer Robert Batt
 suggested the river pirate or reiver. Gerald Stommes, student activities coordinator, submitted the suggested mascot name to the student
 body, which voted to accept it. In addition, students voted that the college’s colors should be Ice Blue and Silver. In the 1980s they became
 the now-familiar Royal Blue and White.

 The Iowa Western Reiver Mascot, like the official college colors, has continued to evolve through the decades, withstanding skeptical ques-
 tions about its applicability and origin. When, however, Iowa and Nebraska residents and those prospective students from many other states
 and countries learn of the Reiver’s history, they can see some reasons even today of its aptness. Of course, a sports mascot should be fierce
 like a tiger, cyclone, or pirate! And certainly, the area around the college, like that border area between England and Scotland, is influenced
 by rugged terrain and rivers. Lastly, contemporary society still must contend with robbers and ruffians, but Iowa Western provides the
 Renaissance, or rebirth of learning, for our area.
