Waukon football team clinches Class 2A District 4 championship, automatic play-off qualification after holding off feisty Anamosa team for 44-24 victory

The Waukon football team accomplished more than just another victory with its 44-24 road win at Anamosa Friday, October 12. That win also earned the grid Tribe automatic qualification for the Class 2A State Play-Offs and a chance at what’s believed to be its first outright district championship in program history.

“We are pleased to know we have a play-off berth with one game to go,” Waukon football coach Chad Beermann said. ‘However, we want to win the district outright. Monticello or Columbus could tie us in district wins, though we have the head-to-head (advantage for play-off qualification). We are gunning for what we believe to be Waukon’s first-ever outright district title. That would be quite the feather in the cap for this year’s seniors.”
