Football: Varsity 

The varsity football team has started off strong this year with a win on Aug. 26 against DCG and has also won a home game against Pella. This past game on Sept. 9 at ADM, the team lost 20-29. 

The team has six more games to play and those scores will determine if they make it past regionals. If they keep up the winning streak hopefully comet colors will fly at regionals and state. 

Football home games are on Sept. 16 and 23, Oct. 7 and 21. 

Volleyball: Varsity 

The volleyball players have been busy so far with four events, ranging from triangulars, tournaments and matches. 

So far the team has won their match at Carlisle on Aug. 30 and their match at home against Grand View Christain on Sept. 1. At that same tournament, unfortunately, they lost to newton. They also had a tournament on Sept. 3 where they won four matches and lost one. On Sept. 6, the team beat Carroll at home in just three matches. Their last tournament at Southeast Polk On Sept. 10, the girls won two matches and lost three. 

Make sure to support the volleyball team by going to as many matches as possible. The volleyball home events are Sept. 22, 29 and Oct. 4.

So far the girls’ cross country has been very successful, they received second place as a team on Aug. 29 at Webster City and third place at Pella on Sept. 3. The girls also competed on Thursday Sept. 8 and came in at fourth place. 

The girls’ team will be competing at North Polk High School during homecoming on Oct. 3.
