Collin Gavin’s stint as the first NFV boys to make the State Golf Meet was a short one as storms rolled through the Marshalltown area Friday morning. With over 11.5 inches of rain in six days, the course just could not hold any more water. Thus officials   cancelled the second round of action.

In fact, the Class 1A and 3A tournaments were also cancelled.

That meant the awards were based on the scores from Thursday.

Head coach Seth Owings gave his team credit afterwards, saying, “The guys showed a lot of heart. We were down 4-1 at one point, but were able to fight back and almost pull off the upset.

Softball rallies to win opener

NFV’s Kennedy Lape quickly retrieved the ball and flipped to pitcher Makenna Koch who had plenty of time to apply the tag during the TigerHawk’s 4-3 victory Wednesday, May 24 in West Union.

NFV opened the 2019 season with a win at home Wednesday, May 22, over Riceville. However, it took a last-inning, three-run rally to secure a 4-3 win.

 Neither offense could do much early. The TigerHawks threatened in the second. With one on, Abby Reichter and Kennedy Lape hit back-to-back screaming liners  – both right at the center fielder.

The Warrior boys’ golf postseason officially began Friday, May 10, at the 1A Sectional meet at Silver Springs Golf and Country Club in Ossian.

South Winn shot its lowest 18-hole score of the year on its way to a first place finish (359) on the day.

“All of our six players finished in the top 11 as individuals,” said coach Mike Wenthold after the meet. “This shows our ability to compete all the way up and down the lineup. It was awesome to see us win a lot of individual honors in a meet with seven teams. Also, winning a Sectional title was a goal we set for ourselves at the beginning of the year, so coming through on that one is nice.”

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.
