The Iowa High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) has released the 2014-15 district football assignments.
As expected, North Fayette Valley moves up to Class 2A. The TigerHawks are in District 3. For the next two years they will face Beckman, Columbus, Center Point-Urbana, New Hampton, Oelwein, and Waukon.
The new district is loaded with quality teams. Waukon, coached by former Valley head man Chad Beermann, was the Class 2A runner-up last season. Along the way Waukonbeat Beckman and New Hampton; Center Point- Urbana lost to New Hampton in round one of the playoffs.

It’s simple. The South Winn boys’ basketball team just wants to play the game. The Warriors took care of the ball and managed to convert steals and defensive board into points in their 76-31 win over Ed-Co on Friday.
It’s hard to overcome 41 points at the charity stripe, but that is exactly what the Lady Warriors faced versus Ed-Co at home on Friday, as SW fell, 68-64. After tallying 36 fouls in the game, the Warriors trailed by as many as 15 in the fourth quarter.
The Vikings took advantage of the tight officiating to start the game with 10 of their 14 first-quarter points coming from the line. South Winn, on the other hand, had to rely on its shooting abilities to keep the game in check and trailed, 14-7.
A dual record of 3-2 gave the Warrior wrestling team a third-place finish Saturday at the annual Decorah Dual Invitational with Luis Uribe (138), Chris Brincks (195), and Ethan Kipp (220) collecting honors on the All-Tournament Team for going undefeated for the day. South Winn finished behind Western Dubuque (5-0) and host Decorah (4-1).
This Friday will be Pack-the-Gym Night in Maynard as Clayton Ridge comes to town for a pair of basketball games. There will be a soup supper from 5 to 6:30 p.m., with the girls’ game starting at 6:30 and the boys’ tipoff at 7:45 p.m.
Last week, West Central basketball teams managed to get in only one game after the game at Starmont on Tuesday, Jan. 14, was postponed due to the weather.
