The South Winneshiek boys’ and girls’ track and field teams traveled south to Des Moines last week to compete in the 2019 State Track and Field Meet on the Blue Oval of Drake Stadium.

The Warrior boys were led by junior Noah Tieskoetter who placed 10th in the long jump with a distance of 20’04”. Senior Paul Hageman also placed high in the 3200, taking 12th. In an odd event, there were no official times for the race because of an incorrectly fired gun that came a lap earlier than the actual final lap.

Other Warriors to compete included the 14th place 4x100 team of Zach Taylor, Cael Kuboushek, Noah Tieskoetter, and Jacob Herold. The group finished in 44.94. Seth Greve placed 22nd in the discus (122’08”) and Jaron Todd placed 23rd in the high jump (5’07”).

For the Warrior girls, senior sprinter Ellie Loesch led the way with a pair of top-five finishes at State. The speedster placed fourth in the 100-meter dash (13.10) and fifth in the 200-meter dash (26.85). Her efforts helped the Warrior girls score nine points, placing them 30th among the Class 1A girls.

The NFV boys’ soccer team closed out its initial season as a varsity sport at home against Decorah on Thursday at Pattison Field in Fayette.

The 13-5 Vikings came out strong, gaining a 2-0 lead midway through the second half.

Then, Kole Johnson scored with 20 minutes left in the game on an assist from Taylor Luzum.

That seemed to ignite the TigerHawks as they came close a number of times to tying the game, but came up just short.

The NFV girl’s golf team finished second Tuesday (May 7) and seventh at the Regional Tournament Monday (May 13) in Jesup.

The regional was full of good teams as the Tiger Hawks slipped to seventh.

“I was a little disappointed, but the girls actually scored higher than I thought they would,” commented head coach Robin Madole. “It was probably the toughest Regional in Class 2A and only two could advance. The greens were lighting fast, which gave some of the girls fits.”
