High school sports, activities on hold

 

Following Sunday’s announcements from Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, all spring activities of Iowa’s high school Unified Activities partners – the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, the Iowa High School Athletic Association, the Iowa High School Music Association, and the Iowa High School Speech Association – will be prohibited through the state’s K-12 school recommended closure of four weeks.

Gov. Reynolds announced the recommended closure in collaboration with the Iowa Department of Public Health, in response to community spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Iowa.

This recommended closure date currently extends through Friday, April 10 and would mean a school return of April 13. Prior to April 10, the schedule will be assessed as necessary with information from the Governor, Iowa Department of Public Health, Iowa Department of Education, and activity partners at the IGHSAU, IHSAA, IHSMA, and IHSSA.

The Warrior boys’ basketball team saw its season come to an end Tuesday night, Feb. 25, as Turkey Valley’s strong fourth quarter propelled it over South Winn and into the District final.

“This was a tough one to take in for our guys and a tough way to end the season,” said coach Blake Moen, who’s team fell by a score of 57-44. “We struggled a little too much against Turkey Valley’s pressure defense the last five minutes of the game and had some costly turnovers that led to their run late in the game, which made the difference.”

The Warrior boys picked up a win in the second round of the District 4 playoffs last week as South Winn held off a feisty Nashua-Plainfield team, 51-46.

“This game really tested us in a lot of ways and I am really proud of our guys in battling to the end to get the win,” said coach Blake Moen after the Thursday night victory. “Our offense was very slow for most of the game and we struggled to get the ball through the hoop, but I am very ecstatic for our guys in how they answered to a tough N-P team and found a way to win a postseason basketball game.”

The TigerHawk boys’ basketball team saw its season come to an end Thursday as the Trailblazers of Beckman Catholic downed them, 66-32.

“Dyersville just really got after us defensively and it bothered us, especially in the first quarter,” said coach Matt Krambeer after the season ending loss. “We turned it over 10 times and only got five shot attempts in the first quarter and were down 16-2 after that blitz. When you dig yourself in a hole like that, it makes it tough to come back against a team like Beckman.”

The TigerHawks were able to generate some offense in the second quarter as they cut the lead to 33-12 at the half, but the Blazers proved to be too much for NFV.

It was a bit of a rollercoaster ride for the South Winneshiek wrestling team Saturday as it competed at Districts at Starmont, but when the dust settled, three Warriors punched their tickets to the 2020 Iowa High School State Wrestling Tournament in Des Moines.

“A lot of different emotions are felt in a short time. We had some great wins and some devastating losses,” said coach Jacob Elsbernd after Saturday’s action. “Ethan Maldonado started off the day with a big win vs. Don Bosco, which was about as exciting as it gets. But then Phillip lost a tight match to bring us right back down. It went that way all day back and forth – a big win and then a tough loss. As coaches, we are excited for our State Qualifiers but also feel the pain of our wrestlers who didn’t make it.”
