N-K’s Justin Mills stretches over the finish line after completing the anchor leg of the 4x00-meter relay last Thursday night at the Bison Boys Relays.
With virtually no field event presence on the team this season, not because of talent but instead its youth, the Northwood-Kensett boys track team depends on getting things started with the running events, hopefully early and with great success. And while the Vikings placed fourth at last Thursday...
Viking Jason Hanson sinks a long putt last Monday afternoon on a windy day in Sheffield. Hanson shot a team best 57 at Ridge Stone Golf Club.
Northwood-Kensett’s Emma Davidson is on fire this season. Last week alone the talented golfer earned medalist honors not once, but twice, shooting a 49 at Ridge Stone Golf Club in Sheffield on Monday and an even better 46 on her home course last Thursday afternoon at the Northwood Country Club....

After sitting out last season because of COVID-19 it seemed like a time for renewal at last Friday night's Girls Viking Relays in Northwood. A new season, a new athletic director, and a track meet that went off without a hitch, thanks to AD Jordan Reindl and the many volunteers that make this...
The Northwood-Kensett Vikings trap team started the 2021 season by shooting against Osage on Monday April 5). Osage won the event with a score of 217 to 212 for the N-K team. Top scorers for the Vikings were Haydan Pestorious, 44, Cody Wahl, 43, Breyden Hoppner, 43, Colin Houg, 43 and Casson...
While other golfers obviously took most of last spring and summer off, either because of the pandemic or other reasons, it’s also obvious that N-K’s Drew Wilder was not one of them. Wilder took to the links last Tuesday afternoon in Elma and looked like he never missed a match in 2020, shooting a 41, four strokes ahead of his nearest competitor, taking home medalist honors the first time out in 2021.
Northwood-Kensett’s Drew Wilder shot a best round of 41 last Tuesday afternoon in Elma to lead his team to a dominating 26-stroke win over second-place Rockford, giving the Vikings their first win of the season. All of N-K’s golfers landed in the top 10 at Elma, including Nic Hanson (48), Carter...
N-K’s Demaris Peterson hands off to Madalynn Hanson last Monday afternoon at West Hancock’s Bob Sanger Coed Relays. The sprint medley team of Sydney Welch, Kayla Senne, Peterson and Hanson took home a fifth place medal with a time of 2:16.63.
After a poor showing the first week of the season at Saint Ansgar the Northwood-Kensett girls track team looked more determined than ever when it stepped on the track on a windy but warm afternoon last Monday in Britt. Facing solid teams from West Hancock, Lake Mills, Newman Catholic and Garner-...

Telling me not to expect a whole lot out of this year’s track team, Vikings head coach Dave Capitani said, “All of our throwers are new and we only have three or four kids that can run. It might be a long year.” I’ve known Cap going on 15 years now and while I’ve never heard him say his teams were...
Lady Viking Jesslyn Sims competes in the shotput last Tuesday afternoon at the Saints Coed Relays in Saint Ansgar. Sims earned her team one point with her throw of 26-09.25, good for sixth place.
Like many of the competitors at last Tuesday night’s Saints Coed Relays, I find myself this morning thankful that the track and field season, after a year off because of the COVID-19 pandemic, is once again underway. With lineups thrown together from the remnants of last year’s teams that never...
