Jordon Snyder

Making this big of a leap, Evan Drilling has no problem avoiding the ball hit by a teammate. Drilling would go to third on the play, then score one of 10 runs Turkey Valley would use in the game one win over MFL Monday.
Remember the old commercials “this is what your brain looks like on drugs?” Turkey Valley Dan Stepan used a similar approach when he sent box scores on the Trojan baseball team’s early-week games. After Monday 10-0 and 8-0 wins over MFL, the coach said, “This is what a box score looks like when you...
Ethan Leibold, above, was selected to the Upper Iowa Conference first team at the conclusion of the 2017-18 season.
Turkey Valley didn’t dominate the Upper Iowa all-conference lists as much as some might expect of a team that won their second straight conference title, and didn’t lose a UIC game until one slipped through their grasp late in the season. Ethan Leibold earned first team honors, while Evan Drilling...
After stealing a Tripoli pass, Jordon Snyder goes in for a layup Tuesday.
The season ended for Turkey Valley’s boys in the district semifinal Tuesday night as they were defeated by Tripoli, 46-43. Turkey Valley started the game with a 10-0 deficit, and although they did catch and occasionally lead the Panthers during the game, the ability of Tripoli to hit the 3-point...
Jordon Snyder, shown here at the New Hampton Invite, earned his fourth all-UIC honor at last week’s conference  meet.
     Jordon Snyder was fairly confident of his ability to finish in the top 15 to earn all-conference honors during the Upper Iowa Conference race last Thursday.     After all, the senior has been all-UIC his freshman, sophomore and junior years.     "I knew I should be in the top 10, for sure," he...
Isaac Franzen ran his career-best time under less than ideal conditions while competing for the Trojans at the New Hampton cross country invite Thursday.
     It was the third meet the Trojan cross country team ran in a week's time. Four runners braved the rain at the New Hampton cross country invitational Thursday and, despite the conditions, all had decent times.     Some spots were slippery at the New Hampton Golf and Country Club.     "You wear...
Perhaps the biggest improvement in times this year has come from Turkey Valley sophomore Lucas Scheidel, who set his second personal record of the season at Crestwood Saturday.
    For the first time in three meets, Turkey Valley’s boys had the numbers for a varsity team score when they ran at the Crestwood Invitational Saturday.    But just barely. While most of the other school had the luxury of throwing out a score or two, all the Trojan scores counted, and they came...
 Turkey Valley’s Jordon Snyder runs for the varsity boys team at Luther College Saturday.
    It's quite a sight on a sunny morning to watch hundreds of runners start a race.    “I think it's beautiful,” said New Hampton cross country coach Jamie Quass Ohrt after the Luther All-American Invitational Saturday competed with 28 schools in attendance.    “But for the kids, it's a little...
    While two girls joined Turkey Valley freshman Jaycie Byrne on the cross country course Thursday at the Tri City golf course near Luana, there still weren't quite enough bodies to compete as a team.    The boys also fell just short, with four members finishing from their squad.    Still, coach...
Two lettermen return for the Turkey Valley cross country teams, senior Jordon Snyder, left, and sophomore Isaac Franzen.
    Since Turkey Valley has been running with the South Winn cross country program the last two years, it’s been awhile since a Trojan uniform has been on a course.    But the program got underway Tuesday as five boys and one girl competed at Edgewood-Colesburg.    Jordon Snyder led the Trojan boys...
Jordon Snyder had a personal record in the 3,200-meter run at Kee Thursday.
While most of us tried to stay out of the wind and chilly temperatures Thursday afternoon, Turkey Valley's track runners were competing in a coed meet at Kee High.    "Oh, it wasn't that bad," Trojan junior Jordon Snyder said after winning both the 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs. "I mean, it was still...
