Norwalk Warriors I Official Publication for the Norwalk Community School District I Page Eight N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, March 5, 2015 ii~ Dustin Kralik Abig Warrior congratu- lations to Head Boys Soc- cer Coach, Dustin Kralik, who was inducted into the Iowa High School Soccer Coaches Association Hall of Fame. His induction is well deserved as Coach Kralik has over 200 career wins, all at Norwalk. He has directed the Warrior soccer program to 10 state tournament appearances which includes two state championships and five state runner-up finishes. The Norwalk Athletic/Ac- tivities Department con- gratulates Coach Kralik on this much deserved honor. Boys Bowling The Norwalk Warriors traveled to Plaza Lanes to compete in the Class 2A state district qualifying match. The Warriors started slow in the first game, but turned it up in the second game. Senior Eddie Holland started with a solid game of 211 to lead the Warriors. In the second game, seniors Noah Daniels and Austin Artwein rolled games of 205 and 207, respectively, and the Warriors found themselves in second place, 45 pins behind front runner DM Hoover. The Warriors rallied in the baker games. However, the rally fell just a little short, finishing in second place just 14 pins behind DM Hoover; who quali- fied for the state bowling tournament. Out of 24 competitors, Norwalk placed three in the top five individually. Daniels came in second with a 396 series, Holland was third with a NHS Activities Director By A1 Lammers 395 series and Artwein fin- ished fifth with a 389 se- ries. Team Results 1. Des Moines Hoover, 2,806; 2. Norwalk, 2,792; 3. Newton, 2,576; 4. Des Moines North, 2,504 Girls Bowling The Lady Warriors got off to a good start and bowled consistently throughout the match. Se- nior Emily Kawano led the Warriors with a 360 series, including a personal high game of 214. The Lady Warriors found them- selves in second place be- hind a good Newton squad by 205 pins, but could not overcome the Newton lead in the baker games. Kawano led the Warriors in the bakers by rolling seven strikes and spares out of 10 frames. Kawano finished third overall individually with a 360 series. Team Results 1. Newton, 2,475; 2. Des Moines North, 2,223; 3. Norwalk, 2,187; 4.

The Warriors handled visiting ADM 64-46. Senior Baylee Steele had another double- double with 20 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Warriors. Freshman Luke Vaske added 14, while se- nior Carter Albrecht had 12. The Warriors hosted Warren County rival and future Little Hawkeye Conference member Indianola and played through a very physical game in defeating the In- dians 66-55. A tremendous defensive 3rd quarter, in which the Warriors outscored the Indians 21- 3, extended a four-point lead at the half and al- lowed the Warriors to sus- tain an Indianola run in the fourth to pick up the final game of the year win. Jun- ior Michael Geistler came off the bench to lead the Warriors with 18 points LIBRARY EVENTS Saturday, March 7 Baby Explorers Story- while Albrecht had 12.season come to an end time, 10-10:45 a.m. Satur- Girls Basketball with a 49-36 defeat at the days in March, caregivers The Lady Warriors trav- hands of the Panthers.

I want to encourage parents to do everything possible to make sure all our students report to school on time every day. We are experiencing a larger number of tardy students on a daily basis, which is cause for concern. Stu- dents who report to school on time, prepared for their day and ready to focus, are better able to work to their potential and get the most out of their school experience. Students who rush into the building at the last minute or after the tardy bell has sounded are often not well prepared for learning. Remember that Iowa Code requires all children of compulsory attendance age to attend school and that a process for working with families who do not fulfill their duty in this area is well-defined. Ultimatel our goal is to make sure your child makes maximum use of his/her potential while attending school. Thank you for do- ing your part to make sure your child comes to school ready to learn! Conferences: Thanks to those of you who attended conferences. I know that the teachers appreciate you taking time out of your busy schedule to celebrate the suc- cesses of your child.
