Katie Van Sloun had an outstanding performance during the Iowa Christian Academys win over Moulton-Udell this week. Her hard work during the off-season is showing and we are happy to see it. Great job Katie and good luck the rest of the season!
The Valley vs. Dowling game gets a lot hype and in this case it lived up to the billing. There were many AI athletes on the field and they all put forth a great effort and put on a fantastic show for high school football fans. It is a long season and I am sure both teams will continue to improve throughout the year and we can only hope that we see them meet again in the playoffs!.
Waukee had a disappointing performance against #1 Dowling last week but they bounced back in dramatic fashion against a tough opponent in Johnston winning 37-7.
