The Warrior volleyball team continued its strong 2017 campaign last week as it picked up a 3-0 victory over Clayton Ridge on Monday, Oct. 2.

The win means South Winn remains atop the Upper Iowa Conference standings as the team approaches the final matches of season.

“Going into this match (against Clayton Ridge) we knew that it was going to be one of our toughest conference matches,” said head coach Glenna Munuswamy. “We had seen the Eagles play at the Decorah tournament and they looked very scrappy and capable of defeating any team that let down it’s guard.”

The South Winneshiek football team made it four straight wins Friday night as it shutout the Sumner-Fredericksburg 40-0 on the road.

With the rain falling all night and eventual lightning leading to a game that would be forfeited by the Cougars early in the third quarter, South Winn wasted no time in getting to work in all departments.

After kicking off to start the game, the South Winn defense quickly forced S-F to go three-and-out and punt the ball.

Last week at Jesup, NFV head coach Neal Bentley was pleased with how fast his cross country teams’ times were.

This week after the meet in New Hampton, he was absolutely ecstatic stating, “I can’t believe it, but this meet was even faster! Almost across-the-board our racers took a half or even a full minute off their prior PRs.”

The weather may have been foul in northeast Iowa on Friday night, but the TigerHawk football team was almost perfect in a 56-6 rout of Waterloo Columbus on Parents’ Night in West Union.

Winds blew the rain across the field into the faces of the few loyal TigerHawk fans in attendance. However, the football players quickly brought smiles to those faces.

Columbus received and failed to convert on fourth down. In fact, it only gained one first down all night, none in the second half.

NFV was stopped on its first three plays, but on fourth down, Jace Burrow broke through the left side and raced 48 yards for a 7-0 lead with four minutes gone in the game.

The Sailors scored less than two minutes later when a TigerHawk runner, fighting for extra yards, had the ball pop out and land in the hands of oncoming defender, who never broke stride in going 76 yards for a TD. However, the PAT kick was blocked and NFV still led, 7-6.

After the ensuing kickoff, NFV used Dylan Muggler as its main weapon. The junior started the drive picking up three first downs on four consecutive rushes. Later, Muggler plowed in from the 7 to give the TigerHawks a 13-6 lead with 2:07 left in the opening quarter. 

NFV took just 47 seconds to score again as Lukas Olson picked off a pass and Muggler scored from the 15.

However, before the PAT could be attempted, the game was halted for over 20 minutes by lightning.

The Warrior volleyball team was busy last week, taking on MFL/MarMac Thursday and several area squads in tournament action in Charles City on Saturday.

MFL/MarMac

The South Winneshiek volleyball team picked up another victory on the road last week as the Warriors beat the MFL/MarMac Bulldogs, 3-1.

South Winn lost the first set by a score of 26-24, but it fired back with three straight victories, including wins by scores of 25-8, 25-21, and 25-21.

“We lost the first set, 24-26, but then rallied with a very convincing 25-8 win in the second,” said coach Glenna Munuswamy. “The girls really made a statement about who was the better team in the second set, and they were able to take control of the rest of the match.”

South Winn remains unbeaten in Upper Iowa Conference action as they prepare for the upcoming conference tournament.

“Our offense was balanced, which really helped us get the win,” added Munuswamy. “We love when all our players are getting good swings and being effective.”

Senior Jaden Schweinefus had a season-high 19 kills, while fellow seniors Tiffany Riehle (10) and Lexi Bohr (7) also had season-high performances in the kill department.

“I don’t fault effort,” said Steve Milder, West Central’s head football coach. 

The comment came as Milder was addressing his team after a 79-8 loss to the Dunkerton Raiders on the final Friday of football in September. 

The Blue Devils’ lone score came on a 77-yard touchdown pass from junior quarterback Adam Dolf to freshman wide receiver Aidan Nelson in the third quarter.
