Warriors fight to end but bow out

It was an interesting and memorable 12 hours to be an Alta-Aurelia Warrior.

The afternoon of Oct. 26 started with a “walk-through” pep rally of low-fives at Alta-Aurelia Elementary/Middle School. A pep rally with the football team’s fellow students followed, just prior to venturing to Avoca to face the unbeaten AHTSW Vikings.

But just past 10 p.m., the valiant effort on the part of the class A district two champion Warriors fell shy when a two-point conversion was good by the Vikings to allow them to move on to the quarterfinal round with a 30-28 win.
