The Vikings began with a 5-3 victory over Riceville; beat Elkader Central 13-1; then finished by beating Waukon in the championship game, 8-5.

Waukon and Lansing Kee High finished 2-1 in the tournament, with Turkey Valley, Riceville and Elkader Central going 1-2 and Osage losing both of its games.

Decorah is now 15-8 on the season.  The Vikings will travel to Calmar Tuesday to take on South Winneshiek, then will face NEIC-leading Charles City on Thursday in Charles City.
