White enters no contest plea in connection with fatal wreck

A rural Hiawatha man has entered a plea of no contest to charges that he supplied alcohol to teenagers who were later involved in a fatal wreck in November of 2019. Kyle White, who was formally charged in December 2019, entered the no contest plea in Brown County District Court earlier this month, which led to the cancellation of a jury trial that had been set for last week.

HMS football splits against Riverside

The Hiawatha Middle Football team met up with the Riverside Cyclones on Thursday night, and the Hawks earned a 1-1 split. The A-team picked up their first win of the season last week against Sabetha, and hoped to ride that momentum into this week. The Cyclones hold the Red Hawks down in the game, converting turnovers, as well as a long 4th down, into points on the board, on their way to a 30-0 win. Coach Curt Weldon said he was pleased with the team’s defense, but played the majority of the game defending a short field. The Red Hawk offense struggled against the strong Riverside defensive line, which played in the Hiawatha backfield all night, keeping the Hawks from getting any offense on track.

Rocket VB picks up four wins, stays unbeaten

He Class C-1 No. 5 ranked Rockets (15-0) continued their undefeated season with wins over Conestoga, Malcolm, Falls City, and Nebraska City Lourdes Central Catholic. Serve receive and defense often go unnoticed in the stat columns, but the Rockets surpass expectations night in and night out. With each good pass or dig, the Rockets stay in-system to allow their setter and hitters to post the high numbers they have been this season. Senior Lindsey Moss, sophomore Delainey Cast, and senior libero Shayla Thompson line up three across in serve receive. Add in sophomores Rylee Seelhoff and Eva Brammier as defensive sepecialists and the Rockets have a formidable backcourt that doesn’t allow many balls to hit the floor.
