Nashua-Plainfield sophomore Jakob Whitinger finishes off a reversal against North Linn’s Heath Moyer in a 113-pound semifinal match at the Class 1A state tournament in Des Moines.
Nashua-Plainfield’s Jakob Whitinger stood in the tunnel at Wells Fargo Arena, and even though he had just saw his season end with a loss, the smile never left his face. “I came down here to get on the stand,” the sophomore 113-pounder said Saturday afternoon, “and tonight, I get to get up on that...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Tristen Brase claimed the third indvidual conference title of his wrestling career at Saturday’s Top of Iowa meet.
When he’s old and gray, Tristen Brase will fondly remember what he accomplished in the winter of 2017-18, but for now, his focus is what lies ahead. The Nashua-Plainfield senior claimed the third individual conference championship of his career when he won the 145-pound title at last Saturday’s Top...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Brock Dietz looks for an opening in a recent meet against Forest City.
It isn’t that the last two months haven’t meant anything, but ask Nashua-Plainfield coach Al Frost about the Top of Iowa tournament on Saturday and the excitement rises in his voice. “The real season starts on Saturday,” he said of the 16-team meet that will be held at Forest City and be followed a...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Sam Hake attacks the course at North Iowa Area Community College during last week’s Top of Iowa Conference meet.
    How far has the Nashua-Plainfield cross country program come this year?    Well, consider this: The Huskies’ girls took third at the Top of the Iowa Conference meet and second among East Division teams, the boys had the divisional individual champion in Brock Dietz and six Huskies ran their way...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Brock Dietz is in the lead midway through the race  at the New Hampton Invitational last week.
     Brock Dietz loved the conditions — cool and wet — Thursday night; in fact, the only thing missing was the rain.     “I like it cold,” the Nashua-Plainfield senior said, “and I don’t even mind the rain. If it would have rained like it did in the girls race, it would have been perfect.”     Well...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Brock Dietz runs past Dike-New Hartford runners in the boys race at the Nashua-Plainfield Invitational on Tuesday.
    For almost 11 months, Brock Dietz has had to live with the disappointment he endured at the Class 1A state-qualifying cross country meet.    “I want to run at state,” the Nashua-Plainfield senior said. “That’s all I’ve thought about since last year, so even when I didn’t want to run this summer...
For the first time in 15 years, Nashua-Plainfield won’t be sending a wrestler to the state tournament.  And while that fact is disappointing to veteran coach Al Frost, he won’t fault the efforts his two Class 1A district qualifiers — Brock Dietz and Jakob Whitinger — gave him on Saturday in Lake...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Brock Dietz  works for a pin during the third period of his 106-pound title match against North Butler’s Bryce Trees at Saturday’s Class 1A sectional tournament in Nashua.
The good news was Brock Dietz was going to qualify for the district tournament either way; the bad news is the Nashua-Plainfield junior had no idea that the third-place match had punched his ticket.  That meant, in Dietz’s mind at least, he was wrestling for his postseason life Saturday, but he was...
Jakob Whitinger uses his “all-out, never-say-die” attitude during a match at the Nashua-Plainfield Invitational earlier this season.
The wins for the Nashua-Plainfield wrestling team were nice, but the losses and the lessons they taught may be just as important.  In the end, coach Al Frost will take the first half of the season that came to an end with a 2-1 night at the Huskies’ home quadrangular and a solid 2-4 showing at the...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Brock Dietz  was the Huskies’ top runner at last week’s Class 1A state qualifying meet.
It wasn’t the finish the Nashua-Plainfield cross country team wanted, but ask coach Jennifer Kalainoff and she’ll tell you it was a successful season.  And she means it, too.  “Obviously, we were hoping to get someone to the state meet,” Kalainoff said, “but one meet on one night doesn’t define our...
