Waukon baseball team battles through winless week against NEIC trio

The Waukon baseball team went without a victory for the first time during a week’s worth of competition this past week, falling in three Northeast Iowa Conference contests. The Indians managed just four total runs and 10 total hits in those three games, falling at home to Oelwein, 10-2, in a rain-shortened six innings Monday, June 16 before doing likewise on the road at New Hampton, 11-2, Wednesday, June 18 and at Crestwood, 6-0, Friday, June 20.
Sporting a 3-13 overall record, 1-5 in Northeast Iowa Conference play, the Indians were scheduled to host Waverly-Shell Rock in a varsity doubleheader Monday, June 23 before playing varsity reserve/varsity contests at home against Postville Wednesday, June 25 and at Charles City Friday, June 27, with the annual Jeff Houg Tournament slated for Saturday, June 28. Further details of that annual tournament appear elsewhere on these Sports pages in a shaded box. The baseball Tribe will then play a pair of road varsity doubleheaders at Decorah and at Oelwein Tuesday, July 1 and Thursday, July 3, respectively.
