On Nov. 9, the Ankeny Hawks (13-0) and the Cedar Rapids Xavier Saints (13-0) both won their semifinal games in the state 4A football tournament. They will meet in the UNI-Dome tonight for the championship game.
On Nov. 10, the Des Moines Register featured the Hawks on the paper’s front page and again on the front page of the sports section of the paper. The Gazette’s coverage of the Saints’ win was a small article on page 3 of sports.
Quite a difference in support for a local team by the respective newspapers; disappointing.
