Waukon wrestling team falls shy of the win column in busy 24-hour period of six duals

The Waukon wrestling team ended up having a very busy 24 hours to end this past week without a team score victory in six contested duals, facing some schools they rarely, if ever, get to see on the wrestling mat. The Indians fell to Charles City, 53-12, in a Friday, January 9 Northeast Iowa Conference dual at Decorah rescheduled from the previous evening due to winter weather. They were also originally scheduled to wrestle the host school at that same event, but both teams opted out of that match-up since they will be facing off later this week in another Northeast Iowa Conference dual meet in Waukon and each also had a full tournament slate the next day. The mat Tribe then came up shy in five dual meets wrestled at the New Hampton Duals the next day, Saturday, January 10, falling to the host school, 57-16; to Southeast Polk, 41-22; to South Tama, 57-19; to Waterloo East, 40-26; and to Austin, MN, 42-33.

Kee boys basketball team falls in trio of road games during busy week

The Kee boys basketball team suffered from some slow starts it could never quite recover from in falling in all three of its contests this past week. The Hawks fell in back-to-back nights of road games, 70-39 at Waukon Monday, January 5 and 76-42 at West Central Tuesday, January 6, before suffering a similar fate at Central Elkader, 64-52, Friday, January 9.
“It was a tough week in a variety of ways,” Kee boys basketball coach Pat Wagner said. “Our schedule was strong. We played arguably the two best teams on our schedule on back-to-back nights and then traveled to Elkader Friday after weather problems kept us out of the gym on Wednesday and Thursday. And we cannot afford to not be in a gym.  However, we can’t and won’t make any excuses; we simply  have to get better.”
