Waukon football team plays to near perfection during 2019 campaign with 12-1 season that results in Class 2A State Runner-Up finish

The 2019 Waukon football season saw a golden opportunity end up with a silver lining as the grid Tribe was on course for a perfect championship season but ended up as Class 2A’s State Runner-Up with a 12-1 season record. Playing to the program’s first undefeated regular season since the 1950s, the Indians began their sixth Class 2A State Play-Off journey in the past eight seasons and made their way to the season-climactic State Championship game for the third time in the past seven seasons, but had their first-ever perfect season and two-time championship hopes dashed by a team from OABCIG (Odebolt-Arthur-Battle Creek-Ida Grove) that seemed to surprise everyone this season with its own perfect campaign that culminated in a successful outcome in the program’s first-ever State Championship game appearance.

Left to right - Front row: Marcus Gibbs, Meridian Snitker, Owen Malone, Cullen Dickson, Tucker Jackson, Jakob Regan, Kameron Boots, Ray Bresnahan; Back row: Lance Egan, Connor Stegen, Carter Nolting, Daniel Cowell, Owen Frieden, Nathan Johnson, Mason Kelly. Not pictured: Tyler Block, Walker Hermeier, Tanner Kiel, Caleb Block, Kaelin Crawford, Gabe Byrnes, Joe Hennessy.

The Waukon wrestling team will benefit from exactly half of this year’s crew returning as letterwinners from last season’s squad that compiled a 5-17 overall dual meet record but came up shy of a win in Northeast Iowa Conference competition. That collection of veterans will be complemented this year by a group of first-year varsity competitors who, although young, have a considerable amount of mat experience of their own.

“We return wrestlers that have varsity experience and we have a strong group of young wrestlers that bring in quite a bit of competitive wrestling time prior to entering high school,” Waukon wrestling coach Mason Berns said. “I look for our wrestlers to display a hard work ethic, showing up every day, bringing their best to every competition, and applying that mentality to everything that they do.”

The 2019-2020 Waukon boys basketball team will return a great deal of experience from last season’s squad that played to a 5-15 season record last winter, as nearly half of this year’s squad of 18 players return as varsity letterwinners. An even greater number of those - all but six - return from a recently completed football season that played to every team’s ultimate destination, the Class 2A State Championship game, which has actually delayed the start of this basketball season for the Indians.

This season’s seven letterwinners include four seniors in Alyx Ede, Asher Fahey, Logan Houg and Reed Kelly, the junior pair of Ethan O’Neill and Creed Welch, and sophomore Braden Hemann. “These guys bring a lot of experience from last season and they have all experienced success in other sports,”

Waukon boys basketball coach Jed Hemann said. “We expect these guys to bring some high expectations to our team and lead the way.”

The Kee boys basketball team will see an abundance of new faces during its 2019-2020 campaign, as just two letterwinners return from a team that played to a 5-15 season record last winter. Also new, but yet still familiar, will be the face at the top of the coaching totem pole as Pat Wagner returns to the program’s head coaching role, a position he held for several years prior to the 2015-2016 season.

“After four seasons away, I am back coaching varsity boys basketball at Kee High,” Coach Wagner said. “I was the head coach here from 2010 to 2015. For six seasons prior to that, I was Gene Schultz’s assistant here at Kee. I have also coached high school basketball at South Winneshiek, West Point Marquette and Clear Lake.”
