The Waukon girls basketball team returned to competition following the holiday break, but came up short in a non-conference contest at home against Clayton Ridge Friday, January 2. The visiting Eagles featured the shuffling rotation of a trio of six-foot-plus players in the paint combined with some sharp-shooting guard play to eventually pull away from just a four-point halftime advantage and hand the Indians a 65-43 defeat.
The Indians were next scheduled to play at Class 3A ninth-rated Crestwood Tuesday, January 6 before hosting MFL/MarMac Thursday, January 8. The basketball Tribe will then play back-to-back nights, at North Fayette Valley Monday, January 12 and at home against Oelwein Tuesday, January 13, before traveling to Class 4A ninth-rated Waverly-Shell Rock Friday, January 16.
