Waukon girls basketball team gets back on winning track with pair of non-conference wins, 48-17 over Clayton Ridge and 64-59 at Caledonia

Senior Maddie Ahlstrom becomes new career assist record holder in rare win over Caledonia

The Waukon girls basketball team bounced back from its first loss of the season late in the previous week to open this past week with a pair of non-conference victories, clipping the wings of the Clayton Ridge Eagles for a 48-17 home victory Monday, December 17 before returning home with a rare victory, 64-59, from Caledonia, MN Tuesday, December 18. That win over Caledonia not only snapped a six-season losing streak to the Warriors but also featured the achievement of a new school record for assists in a career by senior Maddie Ahlstrom, whose five assists in the contest pushed her past the previous record of 210 career assists compiled by 2010 Waukon High School graduate Tatum (Meyer) Wagner.

The Indians also had one final game played prior to the holiday break, but that Friday, December 21 home game with Decorah was not played prior to the early print deadline for this week’s edition of The Standard and will be featured in a future edition. Improving to a 6-1 overall season record, and still with a 3-1 mark in Northeast Iowa Conference play, the Lady Indians are scheduled to return to action after the new year with a Friday, January 4 Northeast Iowa Conference contest at Charles City.
