The TigerHawk volleyball squad shut out the Postville Pirates on Thursday night, helping North Fayette Valley improve to 2-2 on the season.

“I thought we did a nice job of controlling the net,” said assistant coach Jared Tilleraas. “Our hitters did a nice job of putting balls away on offense and I also thought we did a nice job on defense with blocking. We made it tough on Postville when they attacked on offense.”

The TigerHawks won by scores of 25-10, 25-15, and 25-19. Individuals statistics for the match were unavailable at press time, as NFV experienced technical difficulties with its game tape recording and was unable to calculate statistics.

'Coach Scott smiling down on NFV runners'

Over 300 runners begin the grueling course at NFV Thursday as the First Annual Bob Scott Cross Country Invitational opened varsity competition. Formerly known as the TigerHawk Open, the event was renamed after last year’s race to honor Scott, who started not only the cross country programs at North High, but also the girl’s basketball program. Scott also won State titles in cross country and track. Fittingly enough the NFV boys won the first annual running of the memorial race. (Jerry Wadian photos)

It was close Friday night, but it just wasn’t meant to be as the TigerHawk football team fell to Crestwood by a score of 14-12.

“I’m really proud of the effort,” said coach Justin Heins after the tough loss. “This was probably the best game we have played so far this year. We played well enough to win, but just had a few penalties and fumbles that killed some promising drives.”

The Warrior volleyball team competed in its first tournament of the season Saturday at New Hampton where it suffered three losses on the day. South Winn lost by scores of 2-0 matches against Saint Ansgar, Tripoli, and North Butler.

“Our team continues to embrace the challenge of playing good competition and looking within each game to see what improvement we have and can still be making,” said coach Alex Smith following the tournament. “Playing three matches allowed us to look at some different personnel on the floor and having a solid week of practice will prepare us well for our next varsity competition.”

The West Central football team will be the first in the area to experience a COVID-19-related change to its schedule as the team’s week three matchup against Dunkerton has been canceled.

The North Fayette Valley cross country teams were finally able to get their 2020 campaign underway last Tuesday, Sept. 1.

“It was good to get our first race in the books after losing our first two (meets) last week due to heat,” said TigerHawk coach Neal Bentley. “We ran fast, though I’m not sure the course was a full 5K. It was really great for our runners to race against someone other than their own teammates!”
