“It’s the worst three-week stretch I’ve seen,” stated NFV co-head boys basketball coach Dan Hovden about the last few weeks of the season. Once again, games were postponed, leaving the team with a home game Friday against Clayton Ridge and a make-up contest Saturday in Elkader. The weather also left the TigerHawks with four games this week.

 Friday’s home game was Senior Night with the TigerHawks starting all five of its seniors, who led the team to a 71-39 victory.

NFV finished a strong third at Saturday’s Sectional wrestling meet in Decorah.

Four TigerHawks finished second, earning the right to compete in the District Meet this Saturday in Indendence. 

 Levi Lauer (120), Gunner Rodgers (138), Jesse Daughton (152), and Weston Fantz (160) will all compete in Independence for the right to appear at the State Wrestling Meet Wednesday through Saturday, Feb. 13-16, in Des Moines.

  While all four face uphill battles because they have to start District action against the winners at the Sectional in Parkersburg, head coach Jacob Pedersen said “We saw where we need to make some small tweaks in all four wrestlers. If they can follow our corrections, we can make some things happen.”

To say that the visiting Postville Pirates, winless so far this season, were outmatched would be a major understatement.
