AMES, Iowa – Iowa State Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard was taken by ambulance Monday afternoon to Allen Hospital in Waterloo. He suffered a heart attack while watching his daughters compete in the Girls Varsity Invitational track meet on the UNI Campus.

Pollard spent Monday night in the hospital for observation and treatment. He remains hospitalized at Allen today. He will be transferred this afternoon to Des Moines Methodist Hospital for continuing care and treatment following a heart attack he suffered Monday afternoon.

Pollard was admitted and treated at Allen Hospital in Waterloo but the move to Des Moines Methodist gets him closer to home.

Pollard will have open heart surgery later in the week in Des Moines.

“It has been overwhelming to have received so many messages of support,” Pollard said. “Our family is so appreciative of the uplifting and encouraging thoughts and prayers.”

Iowa State President Steven Leath has appointed Senior Associate Athletics Director David Harris the acting AD while Pollard recuperates.
