Hawk boys fall to Norse

STORY CITY — As of late, the South Hamilton boys’ basketball team has been on a quest to return to the win column. After all, they have been wandering the wilderness since Jan. 13.

Unfortunately, that journey will have to go on a little longer.

The Hawks ran into some trouble on Tuesday night, coming up short against No. 3-ranked (Class 2A) Roland-Story in a 78-49 final score in a Heart of Iowa Conference matchup held at the North Gym on the campus of Roland-Story High School.

Starting off with a narrow 16-13 lead at the end of the first period, the Hawks (7-9, 5-7 HoI) couldn’t quite catch up with the Norse (18-1, 12-0 HoI) the rest of the way. With their latest loss, the Hawks’ skid has now stretched to five straight games.

Next up for South Hamilton is a trip to State Center, where they will face off against West Marshall at 8 p.m. on Friday. The Trojans are seated next to the Hawks in the Heart of Iowa Conference table, holding a 8-11 overall record with a 5-7 mark within league play.

Senior Landen Skartvedt, junior Reece Ricke and junior Owen Renaud each scored 10 points for the Hawks.

Roland-Story was led by junior Jonovan Wilkinson’s 16 points, senior Isaiah Naylor’s 13 points and senior Luke Patton’s 13 points.
