Official Publication for the Norwalk Community School District [ , Norwalk Warriors Thursday, February 7, 2019 Warrior Fans: I hope that the weather has not been as impactful to your schedules as much as they have been to ours. As a reminder when changes are made to schedules please refer to the Little Hawkeye Conference website and click on the Norwalk link to view all schedules and changes. Bowling: The Warriors traveled to Oskaloosa to take on the Indians in a dual match. In the boys match, the Indians came out hot and never trailed in the match. Freshman Dalton Stoffel led the Warrior charge by bowling a 371 series. Dalton also led the Warriors in the baker's games by throwing 8 strikes and spares out of 10 frames. Norwalk: 2,341, Oskaloosa: 3,272. The Norwalk girls kept the match close in the first round, but Oskaloosa used a good baker round to pull away for the win. Senior Tori Johnson led the Warrior efforts with a nice 331 two game series. Tori also led the Warriors in the baker games by going 5 strikes and spares out of 13 frames. Norwalk: 1,962, Oskaloosa: 2,310. Boys Basketball: The Warriors schedule was a bit disrupted due to the weather resulting in only one game last week, but what a game it was as the Warriors welcomed LHC rival Pella to town in a game that would allow the victor to take sole possession of first place in the Little Hawkeye Conference standings. The #3 ranked Pella Dutch and #4 ranked Warriors played yet another classic with Jr. Bowen Born leading the Warriors with 47 points in an 83- 76 victory. Born's 47 points set a new school record for total points in a game as he filled it up going 15- 21 from the field including 8-11 from beyond the arc. Jr. Tyler Johnson had 16 points. The Warriors trailed through most of the first half when the teams headed into the locker room at the half with the Dutch leading 40-33. But the 3rd quarter was a different story as Born and the Warriors outscored the Dutch 23-12 and would add on to that four point advantage in the 4th quarter for the final margin of victory. The victory moves Norwalk into sole possession of first place in the rugged Little Hawkeye Conference standings with that first place standing to be tested quickly as they travel to Oskaloosa for another top five ranked matchup with the #5 Indians. Oskaloosa currently sits in second place in the conference with a 5-2 record and are 9-4 overall. The Warriors 8-1 in conference play raised their overall record to 12-3on the year.
