Lady Viking Ruthie Conlin drives the baseline in last Monday night’s 40-32 loss to Central Springs. Conlin averaged just 1.6 points per game this season but made up for it on the boards, where she pulled down on average 4.2 rebounds per game, second best on the team this season.
With weather delays and COVID-19 protocols leading to postponements and rescheduled games the Northwood-Kensett girls basketball team was left playing its regular season finale and the start of the regional tournament in the same week. The Lady Vikings, who finished the regular season at 3-12 in...
In one of the toughest matches of the day N-K’s Tyler Mills defeated Saint Ansgar’s Derek Peterson by a 4-2 decision. Mills went 2-2 on the day but failed to advance to the districts when he placed third after winning his final match 13-9.
The next few weeks are absolutely the most exciting for high school wrestling, but at the same time, it can be a devastating ending for most as with the sectional and district tournaments, you either finish first or second, or you go home, for some seniors, never to wrestle again. So it was with...
N-K’s Olivia Stilley drives to the basket in last Friday night's 58-24 loss at Osage. Stilley came off the bench to score two points and grab four rebounds in the TIC East loss.
For one of the teams in the bottom half of the Top of Iowa Conference East last week’s schedule could not have been more difficult – the Lady Vikings, who are 5-13 in class 1A, had the unenviable task of playing Saint Ansgar,  who is ranked No. 4 in 1A, and Osage, the fourth ranked team in class 3A...
Although it sure looks like there is a lot of contact, there was no foul on this play as N-K’s Jason Hanson goes up for two points in last Friday night’s 60-27 loss to Osage. Hanson, with just one week left in the regular season, is averaging 6.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per game for the 6-11 Vikings.
Come tournament time one of the most dangerous teams in class 1A, the team that will most likely pull off an upset, in my opinion is the Vikings of Northwood-Kensett. This team has the talent to do it, if it gets it on the right night, N-K can and has played with any team on its schedule. The...
Northwood-Kensett head wrestling coach Jordan Reindl had his team ready to wrestle in last Tuesday night’s quad in Sheffield, earning lopsided wins over West Fork 51-0, Garner-Hayfield-Ventura 48-21 and North Union 42-36. Against GHV the Vikings only actually wrestled three matches and came away...
The Northwood-Kensett girls basketball team has started to find its way, just in time for the postseason. N-K won one of its three games last week and lost another by just two points, improving to 5-11 overall and 3-9 in the Top of Iowa Conference East. The Lady Vikings got the week started on a...
After losing five consecutive to its Worth County rival, the Northwood-Kensett boys basketball team looked to take its second win in a row against the Panthers of Central Springs last Thursday night in Manly. But with the two teams pretty evenly matched it would take a season defining effort for...
After spending most of the season running the offense and dishing the ball to open teammates, N-K’s Kael Julseth is finally taking his shots, and with great success. Despite the Vikings' four losses last week Julseth had perhaps the best week of his career, scoring in double figures in all four games last week. In the Vikings' four games the talented senior had 42 points, 11 rebounds and seven steals.
I’ve covered Northwood-Kensett boys basketball coach Marty Cotter for well over a decade now and I’m sure he’s not the kind of guy that celebrates moral victories. But with four losses last week, some of them blowouts, I would allow Cotter just this one time to be happy with a loss. Just one night...
N-K’s Carly Hengesteg pulls up for a short jumper last Friday night in Rockford. Hengesteg led the Lady Vikings to the 52-35 TIC East win, pouring in a game high 14 points on 4-9 shooting from the field.
It took almost to February to see it happen, but better late than never for the Northwood-Kensett girls basketball team, who, for the first time this season found itself in the midst of a winning streak after beating Rudd-Rockford-Marble Rock and Lake Mills on consecutive nights last Friday and...
Hayden Moore battles Dalton Tobin of North Union at last Saturday’s TIC Tournament.
The Vikings still have a few duals to wrestle before all is said and done, but they did pick up one more win last week at the Belmond-Klemme quad, while at the Top of Iowa Conference Tournament held last Saturday in Osage Drake Tiedemann went 4-1 and placed third, giving him 100 wins for his career...
