Thirty years ago, on the morning of November 25, 1985, the team placed second at the NCAA National meet. That afternoon, they lost one trainer, two coaches and three runners as the plane returning them to Iowa crashed during its approach to Des Moines International Airport. The celebration and memorial will be held at Country Club Blvd and Shriver Avenue in Des Moines. Click for more celebration details.
