Bowling: The Norwalk Warriors traveled to The Great Escape Bowing Center in Pleasant Hill to take on the Blue Jays of Bondurant-Farrar and the Norwalk boys again found their consistency was off the mark. Junior Logan Duffy led the Warriors with a'363 two game series. The Baker games also proved getting any momentum was tough for the Warriors. Junior Logan Duffy again led the Warriors by going 10 strikes and spares out of 14 frames. The Warrior girls team found themselves in a back and forth match with B-F all night long. Senior Tori Johnson led the girls effort with a stellar 344 two game series. This helped the girls grab a 12 pin lead heading into the baker games. The Warriors went back and forth in the bakers and shot a high game 160 in their third game. The Warriors trailed by 3 pins going into the last baker game but the comeback came up a little bit short and lost the last game by 30 pins in the 10th frame. Senior Tori Johnson led the girls’ effort by going, strikes and spares out of 12 frames. Boys Basketball: The Warriors took on a couple of Warren County teams with a non-conference visit to Carlisle and then hosted LHC and county rival Indianola. Carlisle proved to be a grind as the Warriors found themselves in a four point hole at the half trailing 29-25 but outscored Carlisle in the second half for a 65-61 hard fought non-conference win. Jr. Bowen Born led the Warriors with 35 points while Jr. Tyler Johnson contributed 12. The Warriors next hosted the Indianola Indians in an afternoon matinee in a LHC game. What ensued was nothing short of a great high school basketball game in which a see saw battle -ended in a Warrior victory over the Indians 75—66. The game was close throughout and saw a number of lead changes over the four quarters but a 21-14 3rd quarter by the WarriOrs that overcame a two point deficit at the half provided enough momentum in the fourth quarter for the margin of Victory. Born was once again Norwalk’s leading scorer as he dropped in 38 points along with three assists and Sr. Carson Raper had a career high 18 while Sr. Tyler Endres contributed 14 points and 10 rebounds. Girls Basketball: The Warriors are getting closer every game in putting a game in the win column as they found themselves in a position to win two games but once again came up just short. The warriors traveled to Carlisle in a, non-conference tilt with the Wildcats and despite the fact that they had their largest scoring output of the year they fell just short dropping a hard fought 56—55 game to Carlisle. Freshman Jo Bice led the Warriors with 21 points while Sr. Gianna Bellizzihad her most productive offensive game of the year as she dropped in a season high 18 pts. The Warriors hoped to avenge an earlier conference loss to rival Indianola and it appeared at halftime that they would be in it to the end trailing the Indians 20-17. But as was the case at Carlisle the Warriors struggled offensively in the 3rd quarter being outscored 9-0 and falling in the end 48—34. Swimming: The Norwalk Swimmers and DSM Lincoln swim team traveled to DSM Roosevelt with a conference championship on the line. Unfortunately the Rails came up a bit short as the Roughriders defeated Lincoln 108-62. Wrestling: Due to weather, the Warriors cancelled their originally scheduled tournament in Clinton and instead picked up a deuble dual meet with DSM Lincoln and DSM North/Hoover. The outcome proved successful for the Warriors as they rolled over North/ Hoover 59-20, and in their second dual the Warriors faced a scrappy Railsplitter team in which Norwalk used six falls to outscore the Rails for a final score of 42-33.

The list of organization attending is available at: https://www.career.cals.iastate.edu/cals—career- day. The day following the career fair is devoted to job interviews, which will take place in the union: https://www.career.cals.iastate.edu/upcoming- interviews.
