Iowa Wolves hosting Energy throwback with NBA champion Nick Nurse as special guest
The two opening-round matches of the class 3A State tournament could get confusing really fast. All four teams that are playing, Davenport Assumption, Union, Kuemper Catholic and Unity Christian, all are nicknamed the Knights.
Kuemper Catholic Schools paid less this football season to rent the public school district’s stadium than the district did last year despite a recent school board vote that eliminated a 50-percent discount Kuemper previously had received.
Going into Saturday’s district swim meet the Tigers already knew they had a few events going to next week’s State meet. After the district meet the Tigers more than doubled their entries in the State meet.
For the last six weeks the Wolves have been able to control the clock, and their own field position through their tough running tandem of Amos and Kyler Rasmussen.
There was no doubt entering Friday night that IKM-Manning was going to be in the playoffs. After Friday night there was no doubt who the top team in their district was.
Although they were pretty well focused on eliminating Paton-Churdan, in the back of their minds they might have been thinking about a revenge game.
The wins haven’t piled up like they may have hoped at the beginning of the season, but Friday night the Knights have a chance to end their season on a high note.
Coming into the game, the Glidden-Ralston players knew that they were going to have to shut down the top players of Audubon to pull off the upset.
