The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) still does not recommend ice-fishing at Volga Lake.

According to the DNR, “The edges are thin. Rain and rising river levels will create variable ice conditions. Use extreme caution as conditions can change fast. Ice depths are highly variable.”

 Lake Meyer has ice three to five inches thick, but extreme caution is urged. Edges may be soft; check ice depths often, especially near springs.

The NFV boys’ basketball team ended the 2018  part of the season with a 57-29 victory over Clayton Ridge Friday, Dec. 21, in Guttenberg.

However, it wasn’t an easy victory because, as co-head coach Matt Krambeer explained, “CR has one of the toughest venues in the conference to play in.” 

The night before, NFV won an emotional, hard-fought win over a tough New Hampton squad, and the team seemed to get off to a very sluggish start in Guttenberg, turning the ball over five times in the first quarter.

Despite that, the TigerHawks clung to a 9-8 lead at the end of the quarter. Over the next eight minutes, NFV relied on its defense and a 35-footer at the buzzer by Brooks Hovden to fashion a 27-17 halftime lead.

Although battling injuries and illnesses, NFV wrestling had a big night Thursday in Tripoli. The team finished second in the First Annual UIC Dual Meet, and Gunner Rodgers entered the pantheon of NFV wrestling greats when he won the 100th match of his career.

The TigerHawks finished 4-1 on the night in the Gold Bracket. Their only loss was a close one to MFL/MM, ranked fifth in Class 1A. NFV was in that match all the way, but forfeits and losses by younger grapplers was enough for the Bulldogs to earn a hard-fought win.

For the tournament, Levi Lauer, Weston Fantz, and Gunner Rodgers all went 5-0.
