Kathy Clark named grand marshal of Idaho homecoming parade

MOSCOW — Kathy Clark, a Vandal alum and longtime campus leader who was critical to establishing women’s athletics at University of Idaho, will serve as grand marshal for the 2022 homecoming parade on Saturday.

Clark, who lives in Hayden, worked for U of I for 25 years, notably serving as senior associate athletic director and senior women administrator for athletics. Clark helped start the first Vandal volleyball team in 1974, leading the team as head coach during its first season to a 22-6 record and a third-place finish in the Northwest College Women’s Sports Association. Clark was inducted into the U of I Hall of Fame in 2007 for a lifetime achievement in sports.

“U of I and the Athletic Department will always have a special place in my heart,” Clark said in a university news release. “I have said more than once, U of I is a special place with special people doing special things. I try to return for a few events each year, but to come back with the honor of being the homecoming parade grand marshal is beyond exciting and memorable. Thanks for the tremendous honor and as always — GO VANDALS!”

The parade in downtown Moscow is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Idaho’s football team plays host to Northern Colorado on Saturday at 6 p.m. in the Kibbie Dome.

EWU-Florida football game pushed back to Sunday

Saturday's Eastern Washington University football game at Florida has been moved to Sunday due to the landfall of Hurricane Ian.

The game will still be available digitally on ESPN+/SEC Network+ and carried on 700 AM ESPN and 103.5 FM.
