The Kee girls and boys cross country teams wrapped up their 2018 regular season at the Upper Iowa Conference (UIC) Meet hosted by North Fayette Valley High School Thursday, October 11, a meet originally scheduled for Turkey Valley but moved due to soggy course conditions. Ranked sixth and eighth, respectively, in Class 1A, the South Winneshiek girls and boys claimed both crowns at the UIC finale, edging the third-rated Lady Hawks to place them second by four points and the Kee boys finishing fourth.

The Kee cross country girls were paced by a trio of All-Conference top-15 finishes and had all five of their scored runners finish within the top 20 of the 46-runner varsity field to tally 45 team points. South Winneshiek, however, claimed six of the top-15 All-Conference placewinnings, with all five of the Lady Warriors’ scored runners finishing within the top 14 individuals to tally just 41 points and deny the Lady Hawks defense of their UIC crown won last fall.

Controlling rights for the top of Class 2A District 4 were on the line - along with a happy Homecoming, when the Waukon football team played host to Waterloo Columbus in a match-up of Class 2A top 10-rated teams Friday, October 5. Despite identical records of 5-1 and 2-0 in district play, the experience of the more recent winning Waukon program matched up against a Columbus program experiencing its first winning season - and more than two wins in a season - since 2010 made for a not nearly as similar final result, as the Indians posted a 20-0 second quarter burst on the way to a 38-12 Homecoming victory.

Football Hawks fall to River Hawks of Easton Valley in 34-0 Homecoming defeat


Homecoming happiness denied in muddy mess ... The photo above gives some indication of the field conditions that proved to be somewhat limiting to the Kee football team in its 34-0 Homecoming loss to Easton Valley Friday, October 5. The Hawks were set up on three occasions within five yards of the goal line but were turned away each time, also surrendering four turnovers in the loss.

A rain-soaked field did not allow for much traction Friday, October 5 when the Kee football team hosted Easton Valley in this season’s Homecoming contest, at least not enough traction for the Hawks to get on to the scoreboard in falling by a 34-0 final result to the visiting River Hawks. Having moved the game’s start time up an hour to avoid what was forecasted to be the worst of Friday night’s weather, the previous and existing weather conditions and some hard-grinding football action made for some challenging conditions that left the Hawks’ home field and both teams a muddy mess.

Those conditions resulted in four Kee turnovers, two of which were returned right away for Easton Valley touchdowns. The Hawks also found enough traction to get themselves to the scoreboard door step, but suffered another of those turnovers and two fourth down denials within just a step or two of the goal line.
