“We were very pleased with the way our kids wrapped up the season/ Our goal is always to put ourselves in position to challenge for the best individual or team spot we are capable of getting on that day,” said co-coach Kevin Kearney. “That is exactly what we did this weekend. Everyone gave themselves an opportunity to compete with the groups they were capable of racing. We had many lifetime-best efforts as a result.”

The girls’ 1A race featured only one Warrior runner: freshman Billie Wagner. That Warrior freshman went on to post one of the best South Winn times at the State Meet in school history as her 19:02.6 (season best) earned her a fifth-place finish and All-State honors.

West Central knew playing at Easton Valley, home of the highest-scoring high school team in Iowa, was a tough assignment, but four first-quarter turnovers made the job impossible.

The River Hawks jumped on the Devils for six TDs in the first 12 minutes on their way to a 73-6 win.

According to head coach Steve Milder, “We played hard, but those turnovers made the score lopsided. We were able to generate some offense over the last three quarters.”
