    Howard takes walk down memory lane

    Webster City's football coach will face the school - a portion of it, at least - where he started his career when the Lynx conclude the homecoming festivities against Greene County at 7:30 p.m. A Hall of Fame career that includes 296 victories and three state championships all began in the fall of 1977 at tiny Scranton High School, which eventually became Jefferson-Scranton and now Greene County. Howard, who accepted the Scranton gig when he was just 23 years old, went 22-5 in three years before moving on to Sigourney.

    WCHS spikers go 2-3 at Forest City tourney

    Defensive execution and offensive aggression at net were the clear cut strengths of the Webster City volleyball team at Saturday's Forest City Invite. WCHS hit a respectable .242 as a team with 95 kills in its five matches, but the Lynx made 23 service errors against just 17 aces and were only 89 percent accurate en route to a 2-3 record.

    Lynx head to Algona with momentum

    It's unusual to be 0-3 and yet upbeat, but that's precisely where the Webster City football team sits leading up to tonight's Class 3A District 2 showdown at Algona. And why not be upbeat? After two consecutive lopsided losses, the Lynx gave fourth-ranked Carroll everything it could handle and then some in a 49-35 loss one week ago, and maybe more importantly they found an offensive identity.
