AMES, Iowa - The Iowa State Letterwinners Club awarded the "I" and its corresponding Cardinal and Gold letter jacket to winter and spring sport student-athletes, trainers and managers at the Letter Jacket Awards Ceremony Monday in the atrium of the Jacobson Building.

“Being a member of Letterwinners Club means being part of something much bigger than yourself,” Iowa State Letterwinners’ Club president Craig Rover said. “It’s a symbol of all your hard work, your dedication, and it’s a tremendous source of pride and accomplishment.”

More than 80 Iowa State students who competed in men’s and women’s track and field, wrestling, men’s and women’s golf, softball, gymnastics, swimming and diving, tennis and the men’s and women’s basketball teams were presented their jackets by Rover and their respective head coaches.

Lindsey Long, the director of special events and Letterwinners Club at Iowa State said that the goal is to instill a sense of family and tradition among student-athletes. Long’s sentiment was echoed by women’s basketball player Brynn Williamson after receiving her letter.

“To me, it means I’ll be in the Iowa State family forever.” Williamson said. “It’s just awesome to know that this community is such a family. There are so many people here that want you to do well and want you to leave Iowa State and make an impact on the world.”
