Radon is a naturally occurring, radioactive gas that results from the natural breakdown of uranium. It can be found almost anywhere in soil, rocks, some building materials and even well water.

I NHS Activities Director By A1 Lammers Bowling The Norwalk Warriors traveled to Pella to take on the Eagles of Pella Christian. The Warriors got off to a good start in round one.

The Lady Warriors held off the Lady Eagles in the baker games and won the match with a final score of 1,804 to 1,700. Boys Basketball The Warriors had only one game, but in essence it was worth two games as the Warriors pulled out an exciting Little Hawkeye Conference victory over conference rival Dallas Center-Grimes, 64-61 in double overtime at Dallas Center-Grimes. The conference win was the second of the season over the Mustangs and kept the War- riors in a conference first place tie with the Pella Dutch at 6-2. The Warriors took a one point lead into halftime 28-27 and the seesaw game was tied at the end of regu- lation at 50. The first overtime saw both teams turn the ball over several times, result- ing in just four points in the first extra frame. But the Warriors rallied to outscore the Mustangs in the second and final overtime 10-7 to escape with the win. Freshman Luke Vaske was clutch as he drained five of six 3s and four critical free throws to lead the Warriors with 19 points. Senior Matt Guessford dropped in 16, including four 3s and junior Michael Geistler had 13 points. Girls Basketball The Warriors picked up a non-conference victory as they defeated the visiting DSM Lincoln Railsplitters 61-45. Junior Tori VanVelzen, returning from an injury that has kept her from playing the last two weeks, led the Warriors with 14 points, freshman Shea Campbell had 12 points, while junior Anna Laire contributed a career high 11 points. Wresting The Warriors traveled to Newton for the Little Hawkeye Conference meet and fell just short of claiming both regular season and conference tournament champion- ships as they finished second to the Grinnell Tigers in the team standings by just three points. Unfortunatel the Warriors did not have a single champion, but placed well enough up and down the lineup to come close to taking the title, The following were the team standings from the Little Hawkeye Conference Wrestling meet: 1. Grinnell 205.0, 2. Norwalk 202.0, 3. Dallas Center-Grimes 191.5, 4. Oskaloosa 156.5, 5. Pella 140.5 and 6. Newton 134.0.
