Other notes on this:
West ranks #1 among 4A schools. Waukee is #2. Not so long ago, Waukee was a “small school.” Now it’s a growing athletics powerhouse. Someday, some say, it will be the largest school in the state. It doesn’t sound like a stretch.
Decorah was the top program in 3A with 700.5 points. Marion was fifth.
Four of the top six schools in 2A were private schools, led by Council Bluffs St. Albert.
Wapsie Valley was the 1A leader.
