The Hiawatha Middle School boys picked two wins out of three games in the past week, as the team hosted Riverside on Thursday and traveled to Troy on Friday and Sabetha on Monday.

The 8th grade varsity squad looked good on Thursday night, knocking off the visiting Riverside Cyclones by a score of 41-27. The 7th graders narrowly avoided a defeat in regulation, as the Cyclones drilled a three-quarter court shot at the final buzzer with the score tied, but the shot was ultimately waived off. The Hawks could not quite find their footing quickly enough in the extra period, though, and fell 30-27 in overtime. The combined junior varsity squad picked up a 22-21 win.
