The NFV bowling team came close Friday in Tripoli, but both the boys’ and girls’ teams were a couple of hundred pins short.

Also bowling for NFV were Trenton Clausen (134-166-300), Hunter Kelly (134-156-290), Dakota Cooley (127-103-230) and Zach Schroeder (57-74-131).

The girls lost by 191 pins, 2394-2203, but had some real highlights to take home from the meet.

In their only game last week, the TigerHawk boys lost their Friday home contest to Postville, 55-49.

Last week TigerHawk head coach Dan Hovden commented, “We’re turning the ball over too much, which limits our shooting opportunities.”

Using their quickness and double-teaming press, the Pirates made Hovden’s remarks seem very prophetic through most of the first half.

The North Linn Invitational in Troy Mills is always one of the toughest tournaments of the holiday preseason.

Saturday, NFV finished fifth in the 13-team field with Jordan Baumler winning the 220 pound title.

The fifth-place finish was really good considering the TigerHawks could only fill 10 of the 14 weights.

In one of the toughest tournaments in northeast Iowa, which included a pair of top-3 ranked teams and 19 individually ranked wrestlers, the Warriors finished fourth at Saturday’s South Winneshiek Invitational in Calmar.

“We competed very hard this weekend, and I feel pretty good about how we finished the day,” said Warrior coach Jacob Elsbernd. “We talked about how tough of a tournament it was (going to be) before the day began and focused on effort and doing things right, instead of necessarily worrying about winning.”

South Winn was led by three runners-up and three third-place finishers in the tournament, which helped lead to 144.5 team points.
