MASON CITY —- The North Iowa Bulls announced on Tuesday that with their elevation to the Tier Two North American Hockey League, there will be a replacement in Mason City for the NA3HL Tier 3 junior hockey league. The Mason City Toros will also be owned by F&S Management and play their home games at the Mason City Multipurpose Arena, marking for the first time that two junior hockey teams will play at the same time in Mason City. Bulls director of media Austin Draude says the Toros will fill the spot in the NA3HL that the Bulls vacated.
Draude says with two junior hockey teams as well as all the Mason City Youth Hockey programs going on, it will be a busy arena come wintertime.
Draude says Bulls season ticket holders will have the opportunity to purchase discounted tickets for the Toros.
Bulls head coach and general manager Todd Sanden will help assist in the building of the Toros roster, with the announcement of the Toros’ coaching staff set for later this week.
DES MOINES —- Mason City native Megan Meyer didn’t have to go far to find a new place to play basketball. After spending two seasons at the University of Iowa, Meyer last week announced that she was entering the NCAA Transfer Portal, and now has announced that she’ll be heading to Drake University in Des Moines. Meyer will have three seasons of eligibility remaining and should provide an immediate boost to the Bulldogs roster after they had two guards with significant experience transfer. Meyer played in 40 games for Iowa in two seasons, including 26 in the just completed season, where she averaged just over nine minutes and 2.5 points per game.
