Heading to the home of the top-rated team in Class 2A, the Waukon cross country boys knew they would have their work cut out for them if they wanted to advance out of their Class 2A State Qualifying Meet at Monticello Thursday, October 22. Even though they couldn’t quite keep pace with the meet’s championship total of just 32 points scored by the highest-regarded host Panthers, the Indians did improve on their State qualifying third-place finish from last season by placing second at Thursday’s meet with a team total of 106 points.
The top-rated Panthers of Monticello claimed three of the top four individual finishes at the meet and placed all five of their team-scored runners within the meet’s top 16 individuals on their way to those 32 championship points. A top-15 individual finish is required for advancement on to the State Meet, as well as a top-three finish for an entire team to advance.

The Waukon volleyball team wrapped up its regular season this past week, recording its first Northeast Iowa Conference (NEIC) match victory of the season, but failing to repeat that accomplishment in the NEIC season-ending tournament. The Indian netters pulled off their lone NEIC triumph at Decorah in their final regular season dual match of the season, winning in four sets by scores of 25-20, 27-25, 18-25 and 25-22, but were then defeated by all six other conference teams at the NEIC Tournament Saturday, October 17 at Waverly-Shell Rock to finish seventh at that tournament.
The Indians wrapped up their regular season with a 6-27 overall record, including a 1-5 mark in Northeast Iowa Conference play that placed them sixth in the final seven-team standings. The Indians are scheduled to begin postseason tournament play Monday, October 26 at and against New Hampton.

After being denied a third consecutive State Play-Off qualification last season, the Waukon football team has played its way back to the postseason, clinching that reservation with a 44-17 triumph over Center Point-Urbana (CPU) to wrap up the Tribe’s home regular season schedule Friday, October 16. In a bit of gridiron justice, the play-off securing win over the Stormin’ Pointers comes after CPU had denied that Indian quest of continuing its play-off qualification streak last season with a 27-20 loss that went down to the final moments of play.

Untimely injuries this season had put the football Hawks in a position of fighting for their play-off lives with two recent losses to Eight-Player District 4 opponents, and facing District 4’s cream of this season’s crop in undefeated and top-10 rated Central Elkader did the Hawks even fewer favors, as the visiting Warriors handed the host Hawks a 58-15 defeat to officially eliminate Kee from postseason play for the first time in the past seven seasons.
