Knoxville Teams Begin Final Tour Through Little Hawkeye Conference This Fall

The Knoxville Cross Country Squad, and for that matter all of the varsity squads at Knoxville this season are in a different situation when it comes to competition for a conference title. This school year, the Panthers will be playing their final seasons in the Little Hawkeye Conference before moving on to the South Central Conference next year. Cross Country Coach Mike Moats says his boys have the confidence they can win the L-H-C in their final year. However, Moats adds it will be tough with Pella, Grinnell and new member Dallas Center-Grimes added in. Moats says as a general rule, the conference is so difficult to win…usually the conference champion is a top three team at the state meet.
