One Response to “Little Hawk Awards”

  1. Mr. Anthony J Trimboli NYC on December 23rd, 2016 7:18 pm

    I really compliment your school highly there for having such a nice section here dealing with sports at your high school there being City High School out in Iowa City, IA. I live here in NYC NY and that is good how you have good sports and good articles on sports on here as you do on here. I have two good sports schools by me such as John Adams HS in Ozone Park, NY and Christ the King Regional HS in Middle Village, NY there.

    But what nice articles you have in Iowa City, IA there about sports in your high school there. I like it a lot.

    Keep up the good work.
