Waukon Middle School Football Camp for those entering seventh, eighth grades is August 11-13

The Waukon High School and Middle School football coaching staffs are planning to host the 2020 Waukon Indian Middle School Football Camp August 11-13. The camp, run by the Waukon football coaching staffs with help from high school players, is a non-contact camp aimed at teaching the fundamentals of offensive and defensive play for the Waukon football program.

The camp is planned to be held as scheduled “pending guidance and prior approval” taking into consideration the current COVID-19 situation, so parents and student-athletes should be attentive for further updates. Those updates will be communicated through the school district website and the middle school football website (both listed below), social media, as well as the newspaper if time permits.

Kee baseball team plays to 12-6 season, UIC runner-up finish in 2020

Like all Iowa high schools this summer, the 2020 Kee baseball season was also impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, having this recently completed season shortened to just over a month’s time from the June 1 initial practice allowed to postseason play beginning in mid-July. Not only did the virus trim what was planned to be a 40-game schedule to just under half that total, but it also took away some crucial pre-season preparation the Hawks rely on, especially with this year’s squad featuring just one senior, two juniors and 10 sophomores, with as many as seven of those youngest players in the Hawk line-up at one time throughout the season.

Young Waukon softball team battles hard but falls short of the win column during abbreviated 2020 campaign

While the 2020 Iowa high school softball season was certainly unique in its abbreviated format due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Waukon softball season was unique in its own right. With just one senior, two juniors and just four players returning from last season’s varsity roster at all, the Indian diamond dwellers fielded a team more than half of which was made up of first-time varsity participants and sometimes featuring as many as four eighth graders cutting their varsity softball teeth during this year’s 0-13 campaign.
