There has been plenty of heat and humidity in Iowa this week, but if the extended forecast holds true, we will see more Fall like conditions, soon, in the days to come.
Despite Mother Nature’s desire to turn up the burners, there have been some outstanding high school meets this week, with more to come.
The 39thBallard Invitational was as good as predicted. In the Class A portion, Carlisle Boys edged out Norwalk for the title, 64-65 and for the A Girls, it was Ballard holding off DC-G 44-47. Nodaway Valley was the Boys B division winner while North Polk won the B girls. In total 47 complete teams took part in one of the biggest meets of the year.
