Four welcomed into Lancer Hall of Fame May 1

A day to celebrate Huber, Green, Gerard and Wood


For the second straight year, four new spots in the North Scott Athletic Hall of Fame are being created.

Greg Green (Class of 2002), Shawn Gerard (Class of 2007), Shari Huber (Class of 2009) and Frank Wood will take their positions in the spotlight as they become immortal Lancers.

The May 1 ceremony, coupled with the Senior Awards Night, is scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the North Scott High School Cafeteria and Auditorium.

Green helped usher North Scott wrestling into a new era. He was part of the first North Scott state duals appearance in 1999 and the first Mississippi Athletic Conference championship in 2000.

He compiled a career record of 145-32 which ranks fifth-most on the all-time list.

Green became North Scott’s first four-time state tournament qualifier by winning districts in all four of his seasons. He placed fifth at the state meet twice in his sophomore and junior seasons.

He was a two-time MAC conference champion, in his freshman and senior seasons, as well as the “Most Valuable Wrestler” at the MAC tournament in 2002.

Gerard, having moved to Eldridge from Colorado the summer before his sophomore year, came to North Scott and made an immediate impact.

He qualified for the high jump and high hurdles at the state track and field meet in his sophomore year, placing sixth in the high jump.

A MAC champion and Drake Relays qualifier in the hurdles, he also sprinted and threw the discus.

He is perhaps best remembered for his prowess as a linebacker on the football field where, as a senior, was named to the first team in the MAC, the state, as well as the first team elite all-state.

Gerard played in the Iowa Shrine Bowl before beginning a five-year, four-season football journey with the Panthers at the University of Northern Iowa.

Huber was a menace on the softball diamond, becoming a two-time first team all-MAC honoree as well as taking home first and third-team all-state recognition in her senior and junior years.

After her Lancer career, she became a legendary figure at Luther College, becoming the lone four-time Division III Softball World Series Championship starter.

In 2013, she won the American Rivers Conference Player of the Year award. She was also named an All-American in 2012 and was a two-time all-conference player.

At Luther, she graduated with school records in career runs and hits. She ranks inside the top 10 in career at-bats, doubles, triples and batting average.

Wood’s storied North Scott legacy began in 1973 when he was hired as a physical education teacher. The following year, at just 23 years old, he became the youngest activities director in school history.

During his time at North Scott, he coached softball, girls’ track, girls’ basketball, girls’ golf, sophomore and freshman football, and boys’ basketball.

He helped bring North Scott, and the state of Iowa, into the five-on-five era in girls’ basketball. He took the Lancers to the first-ever five-on-five girls’ state tournament with a fourth-place finish.

Wood also brought North Scott into the Mississippi Eight conference before stepping down from his position in 1987.

He returned in 1999 as an associate principal and reclaimed his role as activities director in 2006, which he held for six additional years.

In addition to all of his other responsibilities over the years, Wood still found time to announce football and basketball games as well as officiate track and field meets.

Created in 1988, the North Scott Athletic Hall of Fame now has a collection of 117 inductees — 90 players, 10 coaches, six teams and seven other distinguished figures.

Hall of Fame Board Members include: Scott Campbell, Jason Schroeder, Eugene Kreiter, Matt Liske, Pam Loussaert, John Loussaert, Kandi Olson, Ben Straley, Kevin Swanson, Zeb Hubner, Tracy Lindaman, Sarah Graham and Ross Shinberg.
