Coming off an inaugural season last winter of learning for both coaching staff and student-athlete performer, the Waukon bowling program looks to build on the foundation laid during that 2016-2017 initial campaign in its second season this winter. Helping that cause will be a total of 10 letterwinners returning with their first-year experience, including a trio of veterans coming back from a girls squad that posted a 4-5 season record and more than twice that many letterwinners, seven, from a boys crew that finished with a 3-6 mark last winter.

Indians will face off against defending State Champion B-H/RV this Saturday in the UNI-Dome

Anyone anticipating another close, down-to-the-wire battle much like the Week 2 28-20 victory the Waukon football team pulled off in its early-season non-district match-up at New Hampton was likely disappointed in the postseason rematch between the two teams - unless, of course, they were Waukon football fans. Much like that early season match-up, the gridiron Indians racked up a massive total yards advantage against the host Chickasaws, 457-156, but this time that Indian upperhand also played out on the scoreboard with a 34-13 Tribe victory that advances the Indians to just their second play-off semifinals contest in program history.

Kee volleyball team has season ended by perennial power Tripoli in title match


Kee volleyball senior Kendra Cooper takes aim at this kill attempt in the Hawks’ three-set loss to seventh-rated Tripoli in the Class 1A Region 5 championship match Tuesday, October 31 at Crestwood High School. Cooper wrapped up her high school volleyball career in leadership style with a team-high 10 kills while also serving up one ace in the match. View and find out how to purchase this photo and many more at the Photo Galleries link on this website.

The Kee volleyball team had its dramatic postseason tournament run come to an end Tuesday, October 31, but it took a perennial net power to finally derail that Hawk tournament train and prevent Kee history from being made one more time just one match shy of the State Tournament. Having steamrolled fellow Upper Iowa Conference opponent Turkey Valley to begin that tournament trek, the Hawks went the distance in dramatic fashion in their next two matches, including an upset at 10th-rated Dunkerton several days prior to end up in the Region 5 championship match against seventh-rated Tripoli at Crestwood High School.
