With a harvest moon above, Alta-Aurelia’s defense dominated and a celebration ended the night with a 20-6 Warriors football win over Sioux Central in Aurelia Oct. 19.

“District champions,” said Zimmerman and the celebration continued.

“We made history tonight as the first Alta-Aurelia team to make the football playoffs,” said A-AHS co-head coach Grant Peckenshneider.
