The Lady Warrior softball team (17-9, 10-6 UIC) continued its winning
ways last week over Central and two more at Saturday’s tournament in
The Turkey Valley baseball team (3-17, 0-8 UIC) has continue to put the
ball in play, but the opponents they have faced have not faltered and
have made the routine plays as the postseason continues to get closer.
It was a week of highs and lows for the Decorah softball team (7-13, 4-9
NEIC) with a sweep over Waukon, dropping a pair to Waverly-Shell Rock
and finishing fourth at its own tournament.
The Lady Trojan softball team (9-12, 5-7 UIC) had some stiff competition
last week, facing UIC forerunner Kee High at home, blanking Riceville
and tough field of competitors at the Decorah softball tournament.
Two different Decorah baseball teams showed up this week as the
Vikings (12-9, 6-6 NEIC) played a tough one in Crestwood Wednesday but
bounced back to dominate against Oelwein Friday.
The Warrior baseball team (22-5, 9-1 UIC) welcomed the challenge, but
would have greatly preferred a slightly different outcome last week,
splitting a conference twin bill with Clayton Ridge/Central at home.
Moving up to be ranked seventh in Class 2A, the South Winn baseball team
(19-4, 8-0 UIC) claimed four more wins so far this week and sits on a
nine-game win streak.
South Winn defensive end and tight end, Carson Lensing recently verbally
committed to playing football for Coach Paul Rhoades and his staff at
Iowa State University beginning in 2016.
Monday’s matchup versus Oelwein was canceled due to lack of the number of players available for the Huskies.
It was a long bus ride home for the Decorah baseball team Monday as the
Vikings (11-8, 5-5 NEIC) fell to New Hampton (14-5, 9-1 NEIC) 8-0.
The Lady Warriors were forced to accept a split UIC contest Monday
versus MFL/MarMac in Calmar, winning game one in an extra inning, 2-0,
and dropping game two, 8-2.
Softball pairings have been released for the 2015 postseason run.
Rain, rain, go away. That’s what many baseball and softball teams have
been thinking in the past weeks, including this week where the Turkey
Valley baseball team (3-17) was forced to postpone Monday’s doubleheader
at Clayton Ridge until Tuesday.
The Decorah baseball team picked up two strong wins to close the week,
moving to 5-4 in the Northeast Iowa Conference and 11-7 overall.
The Lady Trojan softball team (7-8, 5-5 UIC) garnered a pair of
fragmented wins and losses last week in makeup contests versus Starmont.
