After a week without school and nearly a week without basketball competition, the Waukon girls basketball team completed a busy final weekend of the regular season, playing a pair of Northeast Iowa Conference (NEIC) contests and adding them both to the win column. The Indians first handled a winless Charles City team with relative ease, 66-27, at home Friday, February 1 before doing likewise at Oelwein Saturday, February 2, 52-22, in a game rescheduled from January 18.

The Lady Indians were also scheduled to play a pair of non-conference games at home to begin last week, hosting Spring Grove, MN Monday, January 28 and Prairie du Chien, WI Tuesday, January 29, but both of those games were canceled due to winter weather. The Indians now hold a season record of 14-2 that includes an 8-2 record in NEIC play that had them sitting in a tie for second place in the NEIC standings with Crestwood through this past weekend after the Cadets fell to single-loss league-leading Waverly-Shell Rock, 44-29, this past Friday, February 1.

The Lady Indians have a chance to grab at least a share of the final NEIC title when they make up a January 25 postponement at Waverly-Shell Rock Monday, February 4 before traveling to Decorah Tuesday, February 5. The Indians will then open Class 3A regional tournament play this Saturday, February 9 at home against Oelwein, with details of the Tribe’s postseason road being printed elsewhere on the Sports pages in the print and e-edition of The Standard..
