Dakota Smyser, Kelsi Oberhauser are North Nodaway Homecoming Royalty

Seemingly, North/West Nodaway needed a normal night of football to get things straightened out and pick up their first win of the year, 36-26 over Platte Valley. Dakota Smyser and Kelsi Oberhauser were named royalty in ceremonies before the game.

The pep rally was held Friday afternoon. There was a lip sync act from all classes from grades 6 through 12. The seniors and freshmen raced each other in caterpillar balloon races, as did the juniors and sophomores. The seniors and the sophomores won to set up the championship round, won by the seniors. All the fall sports teams were introduced. The sophomores won the dress-up days, while the seniors won the float competition and the lip sync competition. The seniors won the spirit stick. Among the younger students, the 7th graders won the dressup days, the 8th graders won the poster contest, while the 6th graders won the lip sync. The 7th graders won the spirit stick for the middle schoolers and will go to the front of the line for next week.

Other candidates were Shelby King, Dakota Adamson, Taylor Adwell, and Daytona Lutz. Junior attendants were Dayna Rowen and Shamus Peterson. Sophomore attendants were Katie Bloomquist and Justin Strough. Freshman attendants were Abigail Ferguson and Drexel Richardson.

The game was close all the way, but Dakota Smyser’s 30 yard run in the second quarter and North/West Nodaway’s two point conversion run gave them separation and the Muskets took a 30-14 halftime lead. Platte Valley cut the deficit twice to 10 points, but could get no closer in the second half. Daytona Lutz had 72 yards in 22 carries for the Muskets. Korbin Koch had seven completions in 16 attempts for 59 yards. Dakota Smyser caught 5 passes for 53 yards.
