The Kee volleyball team brought its regular season to a close, matching up against the final two Upper Iowa Conference (UIC) teams that the Lady Hawks had not faced yet in league match play this season. In those two final matches, however, the Kee netters ended up suffering the same fate as in their last five UIC bouts, coming up on the short end of the final result. The Hawks fell in three sets in both of those matches, doing so at Turkey Valley Tuesday, October 13 before suffering that same result at home against MFL/MarMac Thursday, October 15.

Finishing the regular season with a 4-11 record that included a 1-7 mark in Upper Iowa Conference play, the volleyball Hawks were next scheduled to begin their Class 1A regional tournament Monday, October 19 at Turkey Valley. Results of that Monday evening match are printed in a shaded box elsewhere on the Sports pages in the October 21, 2020 print edition and e-edition of the Standard.

Waukon football team clinches third consecutive undefeated District Championship with 48-22 win at North Fayette Valley

The theme for the Waukon football team’s final game of the 2020 regular season was one of “repeat” Friday, October 9 at North Fayette Valley in West Union.

The Indians were looking to repeat their recent trend of dominating wins over Class 2A District 4 opponents in a quest of repeating as the undefeated District 4 champions for a third straight year. Both of those accomplishments were completed with relative ease, as the grid Tribe proceeded to repeat a trend of scoring on its first seven offensive possessions while turning away the host TigerHawks’ first eight possessions of the ballgame on the way to a 48-0 lead before North Fayette Valley finally found the scoreboard for all three of its tallies against the Indian reserves late in the ballgame.

The Kee volleyball team took part in its busiest week of competition this season, playing in a pair of Upper Iowa Conference (UIC) dual matches during the week before taking part in its first and only weekend tournament of the season. That week rode a bit of a roller coaster as it played out, the Hawks first falling at home to South Winneshiek in a four-set battle Tuesday, October 6 and doing likewise in a five-set war at North Fayette Valley Thursday, October 8.

Kee’s net squad then competed in its only weekend tournament of this season, winning two of four matches at the Riceville Tournament Saturday, October 10. The Lady Hawks first defeated Riceville in two sets and then Clarksville in three sets before battling Turkey Valley to a three-set loss and then wrapping up the tournament with a loss to Postville in three sets as well.

Waukon football team wraps up regular season home schedule with 54-0 shut-out victory over Crestwood in District 4 play


Tight-rope touchdown grab ... Under the watchful eye of a game official, Waukon football senior Sean Cooper latches on to a 17-yard pass from fellow senior Creed Welch while keeping his feet inbounds in the back of the end zone for a second-quarter touchdown in the Indians’ 54-0 home victory over Crestwood Friday, October 2. Cooper also latched on to a Cadet pass in the third quarter for an interception and the lone turnover of the ballgame.

A game that many were likely anticipating since a 26-21 slugfest early last season, and likely even more were anticipating as a late-season match-up to determine a district champion, proved to be much less dramatic in its final outcome as the Waukon football team rolled over Crestwood, 54-0, in the grid Tribe’s final home game of the regular season Friday, October 2. Having battled down to the final seconds in that 26-21 Indian victory last fall, and with both teams undefeated in Class 2A District 4 play entering Friday’s game, the battle began as many had anticipated, but a 30-0 outscoring by the Tribe in the second quarter erased any further drama or anticipation in the final result.

Kee volleyball team falls in three sets at home against West Central

The Kee volleyball team continued in search of its first win at home this season, suffering a fate similar to its home opener just a week earlier by falling to West Central at home in three sets in an Upper Iowa Conference (UIC) match Tuesday, September 29. The Hawks got progressively stronger as the match went on, but not quite strong enough to fend off the match sweep. The Kee netters were dealt a 10-25 loss in set one before edging closer in a 17-25 loss in set two and then having the final set snatched away in comeback fashion by the visiting Blue Devils for a match-ending 21-25 Kee defeat.

The Waukon volleyball team remained in search of its first win in the Northeast Iowa Conference (NEIC) this past week, getting a double-dose of NEIC action on back-to-back nights to start last week. Although both of those matches ultimately ended up shy of the win column, they did so to differing degrees, the Indians first battling back and forth at home against New Hampton Monday, September 28 before falling in a full five sets but then having to travel to Class 4A sixth-rated Waverly-Shell Rock the very next night, Tuesday, September 29, and returning home with a loss in three straight sets to the Go-Hawk squad that has played more than three times as many matches as the Tribe this season and won more than twice as many as the Indians have even played in total.
