WARRIOR WEEKLY TRIVIA: When was the last time a Norwalk Softball Team qualified for the State Softball Tournament and in what place did they finish? (The Warrior Weekly Trivia answer is located as the final bullet in the "Did You Know Section”

A good Monday Warrior Fans. The WW apologizes for its lack of distribution during the summer. Needless to say it has been a hectic summer with numerous tasks that have had to take priority over the WW. To catch you up to speed from our last distribution at the end of May, congratulations to the Boys Tennis Team as they captured a 3rd place finish at the State Team Tennis Tournament held indoors due to weather. The Warriors lost their semi-final match to Pella but rebounded for a solid 5-0 win over LeMars in the state consolation match. Great job out of the Warrior Tennis Team. The Warrior Girls Soccer Team looked to advance to their third consecutive state tournament in their regional sub-state matchup with Pella only to see a 2-0 lead at the half erased by two second half goals by the Dutch and then a goal in the first overtime to lose in heartbreaking fashion 3-2 to their Conference rivals. Believe it or not we are in the final week of the softball season before regional play begins on Saturday and we are in the final two weeks of the regular baseball season before district play begins July 19.


With only two weeks left before the start of district play the Warriors will complete their Little Hawkeye Conference schedule this week with a makeup game at Newton tomorrow with the rest of the games these final two weeks outside of the conference. Currently the Warriors have an overall record of 10-14 and are currently in 6th place in the Little Hawkeye Conference standings with a record of 8-9.  


The Warriors will end their regular season this week with a pair of varsity conference doubleheaders tonight at Indianola and at Newton on Tuesday before finishing the season with a single conference game at home against DCG on Wednesday. It will be senior night on Wednesday as we will honor our two lone seniors, Tessa Palmer and Briley Sodegren on their last regular home game of the year. Norwalk will then turn their attention to the post-season as they received a first round bye in regional play as the #2 seed in the bracket. Norwalk will host the winner of Oskaloolsa and Knoxville on Saturday beginning at 7 PM at the Norwalk Baseball / Softball Complex. The winner will then advance to the regional sub-state game to be played next Tuesday. Norwalk is currently 18-11 on the year in the regular season and are 2nd in the Little Hawkeye Conference standings with an 11-4 mark.

Success in all of Norwalk athletics & activities is the ultimate goal, but the lesson learned in the journey to success is what we value more than wins, losses, or ratings. The lessons we teach and what the participants learn is what prepares them for success in life. The performance of our coaches, sponsors, and directors of our programs is more dependent on how they perform in the journey with those participants and not in the end result.
