Dike-New Hartford gears up for state championship game

Posted:

DIKE (KWWL)-- Dike-New Hartford High School hosted a pep rally for the state football finals Friday morning.  Community members gathered in the gym to show their support for the football team.

Athletic Director Mark Parker says this community not only rallies around the football team, but the support really is for all activities.

"Realistically in our size of community the school is everything.  There are so many people in our communities that are wrapped up in the school whether they have kids or not and this just brings out more and more people.  This is truly something that happens once in a lifetime," said Parker.

Dike-New Hartford will play West Lyon Saturday in the state championship final.  Kick off is set for 10:05 AM at the UNI Dome.
