Waukon softball team wins three games during busy seven-game schedule; Class 4A fourth-rated Charles City accounts for three of four losses last week

The Waukon softball team played to a nearly even second week of competition, winning three of a busy week of seven games played this past week. The Indians opened the week with a 4-1 loss at home to MFL/MarMac Tuesday, May 28 before being swept in a road Northeast Iowa Conference (NEIC) doubleheader at Class 4A fourth-rated Charles City Thursday, May 30 by scores of 13-3 in five innings and 13-1 in four innings. The softball Tribe got on the winning track with a 9-8 home triumph against South Winneshiek Friday, May 31 before returning to Charles City Saturday, June 1 for the annual Charles City Classic and winning two of three games there. That Classic experience began with a 7-5 win over St. Ansgar before the Indians erupted for a 17-4 triumph over West Hancock but then ended the Classic with a 5-0 loss to those same host Comets who had dealt them a pair of mercy-rule defeats just two days earlier at that same location.

Now holding a 6-5 overall record that includes a 1-3 record in Northeast Iowa Conference play, the Indians were next scheduled to host Decorah Monday, June 3, play at Oelwein Wednesday, June 5 and host New Hampton Thursday, June 6 before playing in the Riceville Tournament Saturday, June 8. The softball Tribe will then play at Crestwood Monday, June 10 and at North Fayette Valley Tuesday, June 11 before hosting Osage Thursday, June 13.
