The NFV girl’s track team surprised some people at the UIC Indoor Track Meet Friday at Luther College in Decorah. Knowledgeable people in track circles knew the girls had some talent, but were young and without a   veteran speedster.

However, some youngsters came through, some vets stepped up and the TigerHawk gals outperformed every team but one in the UIC.

  While no official team scores are kept in the indoor season, Kee was the unofficial winner with 99 points. NFV amassed 89.5 points to edge Central/Elkader who earned 86 points; South Winn was a distant fourth with 78 points.

The South Winneshiek wrestling team sent a pair of wrestlers to the 2019 Iowa High School State Wrestling Tournament last weekend in Des Moines as 106-pounder Ethan Maldonado and 152-pounder Logan Schnuelle suited up for the Warriors at Wells Fargo Arena.

“We had a great experience this week in Des Moines. It is always great getting our guys down to the State meet, but getting two kids who will be back on our team (next season) is even better,” said coach Jake Elsbernd. “Ethan and Logan can bring this experience from the week back to the rest of the team and can hopefully help lead us in the future.”
