 SW picks up two UIC wins

Taking three games each from West Central and Clayton Ridge last week, the Lady Warrior volleyball team grabbed two UIC wins and a third-place finish at the Decorah tournament on Saturday.

Hitting the road to West Central on Tuesday, Sept. 24, the SW volleyball team claimed victory in game one rather handily, 25-13.

Game two was more of a challenge as the Blue Devils led, 3-1, early, but South Winn pulled out to a 15-9 advantage. Long volleys and serving troubles hindered the Warriors, allowing West Central to regain a 22-21 lead. A Micole Lansing kill inched South Winn back into the game and a Becca Franzen block knotted the score, 23-23. After taking control once again, Lexie Warth put the nail in the coffin with a slam to give SW the 25-23 victory.

Rommes’ kickoff return sets stage for SW 58-14 win

 

Rommes’ kickoff return sets stage for SW 58-14 win

 

Entering week five, the hunger for the district crown and a possible state championship appearance is still burning for the South Winn football team after clobbering St. Ansgar, 58-14, at home on Friday.

“I thought we did a nice job defending St Ansgar's rushing attack most of the night,” complimented SW coach Jason Ohrt. “I was very impressed how our linebackers played.  Ryan Hageman, Tyler Numedahl, Ben Meyer and Adam Lensing continue to get better every week.”

The Warriors had a perfect second wedge on the opening kickoff to Jordan Rommes that allowed him to return the pigskin 96 yards for SW’s first TD of the night.

That momentum carried into the first defensive series for the Warriors as the Saints were forced to punt from their own 49-yard line.

SW here for District 4 showdown
TigerHawks dominate, 56-14

North Fayette Valley football put on a dominant performance Friday, Sept. 27, in Parkersburg. The TigerHawks crushed one of the most storied football programs in the state on its home field in a 56-14 rout.  

To be fair, A-P was missing its starting QB and running back due to injuries. However, the way the TigerHawks played, it may not have made much difference. 

As NFV head coach Bob Lape stated, “Our roles are identically reversed from last year when we were struggling a bit and they had quality experience. This year we have the quality experience and they are struggling.”
