Waukon volleyball team plays to 6-28 season

The 2015 Waukon volleyball team played to a 6-28 season record this fall, winning one of its six matches in Northeast Iowa Conference play to finish sixth in the final seven-team standings. Although that win-loss record may not have offered much in the way of season highlights, Waukon volleyball coach Peyton Lapel found her own bright spots within this fall’s campaign.
“The girls were very dedicated and coachable, on many occasions girls stayed after practice to take more reps and they were always good about adjusting their technique or hitting spots to match the defense we were up against,” Coach Lapel said. “We hope to build off of those strengths to improve individual skills for upcoming seasons. The volleyball season always goes very quickly, so the off-season is the most crucial time for building the program. Strength training and court time are very important for the off-season.”

Kee volleyball team plays to 13-15 record, third-place Upper Iowa Conference finish during 2015 campaign

What looks like it may have been just an average season for the 2015 Kee volleyball team, with a 13-15 season record, was considerably more than that, and had the potential to be something far greater. Within that overall season record, that included another step or two up the competition level ladder this fall, was an Upper Iowa Conference (UIC) record of 7-2 that had the Lady Hawks competing for at least a share of the UIC season championship right up to their final match of the season.
It was eventual UIC champion Starmont that finally dimmed Kee’s hopes of any UIC title this season with losses dealt in both dual match and Upper Iowa Conference Tournament play. The Hawks’ only other dual match losses to a fellow UIC team came at the hands of long-time nemesis Turkey Valley, including Kee’s only other UIC dual match loss in its third-place league finish, as well as an eventual end to the Hawks’ season in Class 1A Regional Tournament play.

Veteran river guide lands lake sturgeon estimated at 114 pounds

Long-time Mississippi River guide Ted Peck of New Albin landed a lake sturgeon from the Mighty Mississippi Wednesday, December 9 that weighed an estimated 114 pounds before he released the “river monster” back into its long-time home waters. Peck said the catch for the ages measured 72 inches long and a 32-inch girth, measurements which, when plugged into a sturgeon weight formula, revealed the estimated weight. Peck is pictured at far right with fellow river veteran Mike Myers of Beloit, WI holding up the catch before it was released back into the Mississippi. Photo courtesy of Ted Peck.
