The Central volleyball team had a tough past week, dropping two matches in straight sets. 

On Sept. 29, the Warriors took on MFL MarMac, losing 25-15, 28-26 and 26-24. While the match was competitive, and the Warriors actually outperformed the Bulldogs in certain statistical categories such as serve efficiency, serve aces and blocks, they could not overcome a disparity in kills and kill errors.

The Warriors’ star quarterback, Jacob Herold, was sacked twice by the Bulldogs, including this one by freshman Wyatt Powell.

The MFL MarMac defense kept South Winn’s prolific triple option offense largely under wraps. Head coach Dan Anderson attributed a lot of that success to nose guard Josh Reichard.

The MFL MarMac football team defeated rival South Winneshiek 36-22 on Oct. 2. The victory, paired with a win over Postville in the final regular season game this coming Friday, would give the Bulldogs a share of the Class A District 4 title with the Warriors and Wapsie Valley.

“It’s a huge victory,” said head coach Dan Anderson. “We went against a really good football team that was undefeated and ranked top four. I thought we dominated for a lot of that football game.”

The Central cross-country team took part in the Jesup Invitational this past week, performing well against what assistant coach Martha Bauder said was “extremely tough competition.” 

The tough competition began in the varsity girls’ race, where stalwarts Hannah Asche finished 20th and Delaney Scherf came in 40th, out of 131 total runners. Asche won a medal, and both girls ran season best times. 

But it wasn’t enough to overcome the assembled field of talent. As a result, the team finished 13th out of 20 teams with a score of 320. Jesup, the winners of the team competition, scored 110 points.

It was the team’s first win of the season and first win since Sept. 14, 2018. 

“It feels really good to get that first win. The kids were really excited and I know that my coaching staff and myself were very excited as well. I think homecoming added a little bit more to it, but I try to treat every game the same,” coach Joe Koehn said after the game.

Central cross country excels at Waukon

By Willis Patenaude, Times-Register

The cross country team contributed to Central’s remarkable week in sports, putting in exceptional performances at the Waukon meet Sept. 22, where ribbons were won, personal times were bested and school records fell. 

The high school girls ran in the JV races, a decision that was made “to give all of our runners a chance to run as a group and get a feel for where they are within the group. We thought that could give them a chance to focus on each other and gain some experience toward what we need to work on as a team to be our best down the road in October,” said assistant coach Martha Bauder.

NFV carried that momentum into the fourth set, cruising to a 25-12 victory. MFL MarMac fought back, though, pushing to a 15-11 win in the final frame.
