 She kept women's soccer alive in the Quad Cities for 35 years, but now it's time to step down. On Oct. 26, the Quad City Women's Soccer League honored founder and director, Jan Luton, who is retiring.  Chris Cournoyer, who plays for a Bettendorf team, says Luton started the Soccer League in 1980 with other local women who were enthusiastic about the sport. Now, the league has teams across the Quad Cities, including some from community colleges and businesses. Cournoyer says Luton has played in and organized every season for the league.

For local hockey fans, the big day has finally arrived. The Quad City Mallards open the new season Friday night with a home game against Rapid City, at the I Wireless Center.

With just two weeks to go until the new season starts for the Quad City Mallards, preparations are still far from complete. Earlier this week, the Central Hockey League dissolved, and its seven teams, including the Quad Cities, joined the ECHL.

Nine former standout athletes at Augustana College will be honored this weekend. They'll be inducted into the "Tribe of Vikings Hall of Fame" on Saturday, as part of the Homecoming celebration.

They'll be the 19th class inducted into the Hall of Fame, and will be presented at halftime during the football game between Augustana and Wheaton.

The former athletes graduated between 2000 and 2004, and excelled in cross country, track, baseball, soccer, football, volleyball, wrestling and basketball.

Just as the new hockey season is about to start, the Quad City Mallards are making a major change. Today  the board of governors of the E-C-H-L accepted their application to join the league.
