The Warren County Caucus will be held Thurs- da} Nov. 19, at the Indianola High School, beginning at 4:30 p.m. It is being organized by Senator Julian Garrett, with assistance from members of the Warren County Republican and Democratic Parties as well as local teach- ers. The purpose of the Iowa Youth Caucus is to inform and engage students in the political process. Due to Iowa's First-in-the-Nation status, we have a unique op- portunity to play a major role in deciding the next Presi- dent of the United States. We hope that by conducting a caucus with the students, they will understand how it works and the experience will move them to get in- volved in the actual Iowa Caucus when they reach eli- gible voting age. The Iowa Youth Caucus is a purely bipartisan event. Students will participate in both a Republican and Democratic Caucus and cast votes for the presidential candidate of their choice in both parties. The results will be tallied at the site. Statewide vote totals will be re- ported that night by Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate. A more extensive curriculum is available online for anyone to use, at www.caucusl01.com.

NHS Activities Director By A1 Lammers "DOME SWEET DOME" WARRIORS QUALIFY FOR STATE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF SEMI-FINALS Football: What a historical week for Norwalk Foot- ball!! The Warriors used a steel curtain defense and timely offensive scoring to secure two playoff wins last week and advanced to their first ever appearance in the state football playoff semifinals in the UNI Dome. The second round game saw the Warriors travel to Gilbert to take on the District 6 champion Tigers and used a 13 point 4th quarter to out distant Gilbert for the victory. Although the Warrior defense allowed 237 yards on the ground to the Tigers they kept Gilbert out of the end zone in the first half and allowed a single score in the 3rd. The Warrior offense was effective once again through the air as Quarterback Brady Brandsfield had 282 yards on 24 completions with 11 of those to senior Tyler Schamel for 119 yards. Logan Foetisch and Chris Bowles led the defense with 12 tackles apiece. The win then set up a quarterfinal matchup with conference ri- val DCG which was Norwalk's first quarterfinal appear- ance since 1992. The defense was the rock lead by se- nior Sonny Onken who turned in his best performance of the year, constantly disrupting the DCG offense and recording nine solo tackles and 10 total. The Warriors trailed at the end of the first half 7-6 and if not for sev- eral sold defensive stands could have been a wider mar- gin as the offense struggled to find a rhythm in order to move the ball, The second half however was a reversal of the first half for the offense as they put up a touch- down in the third quarter as well as another in the 4th while the defense withstood a DCG score in the fourth and a final drive with four minutes left in the game which ended with a 4th down interception by Klay Klocko to secure a Warrior 19-14 victory and a first ever trip to the dome!!!! Volleyball: The Norwalk Warrior Volleyball team advanced to their first regional final game in the his- tory of the program and faced off against a 30-5 Lewis Central team that put the Warriors on their heels as they took a 2-0 lead after the first two sets. The Warriors, however, showed a lot of resiliency as they rallied from a 20-12 deficit in the third set for a 25-23 win and looked to do the same in the 4th set to stave off elimination as they trailed 19-11, but came up a bit short losing the match with 25-22 4th set loss. The Warriors had a great year winning the Little Hawkeye Conference champi- onship with a perfect 6-0 record and 25-11 overall record.
