Moments after his team overcame a relatively slow start to beat Union Saturday night, New Hampton coach Chad Pemble was asked what his team needed to do to beat fifth-ranked and unbeaten Osage in Wednesday’s Class 2A regional semifinal game? His answer pretty much came down to this: The Chickasaws...
Lisa and Kevin Flick accompany their daughter Madison as the five Chickasaw seniors are honored before the New Hampton-Oelwein game Friday.
Isabel Leichtman is used to putting up big scoring numbers.  Earlier in the year against Oelwein, she finished with 26 points, and that figure ties a pair of Crestwood players for the high total of the season in the Northeast Iowa Conference. So while her 17 points in a New Hampton 53-36 win over...
New Hampton senior Alex Schumacher comes up with a critical steal late in the overtime of Friday’s game against Oelwein.
No one needed to tell the members of the New Hampton boys basketball team about Oelwein’s “streak.” They knew. They knew that the Huskies haven’t won a Northeast Iowa Conference game since Jan. 31, 2012, and they knew that the streak stood at 73 games heading into Friday night’s tilt. “Everyone...
New Hampton’s Josh Fenske spots up from 3-point range during the Chickasaws’ win over MFL-Mar-Mac on Monday.
It was a night when, for once, everything seemed to click for the New Hampton boys basketball team. The Chickasaws scored early and often, posted a season high in points and rolled to an 89-55 win over MFL-Mar-Mac Monday. “Hey, we’re on a winning streak finally,” New Hampton coach Chad Sweitzer...
New Hampton’s Jake Zwanziger puts up a 3-point shot in the first quarter of Tuesday’s game against Waverly-Shell Rock.
New Hampton coach Chad Sweitzer has waited all season for his team to put together a complete game in Northeast Iowa Conference play. He’s still waiting. Take Tuesday night, for example, as the Chickasaws gave Waverly-Shell Rock a battle for a half and then fell apart over the final 16 minutes in a...
New Hampton’s Isabel Leichtman, who stands 5-foot-6, looks to drive around Waverly-Shell Rock’s 6-1 Jayme Willemssen.
Chad Pemble stood in the hallway at Waverly-Shell Rock High School and talked about getting his New Hampton girls basketball team over the hump. The Chickasaws had just played Waverly-Shell Rock tough but came out on the short end of a 57-44 score, and while Pemble gave his team an A for effort, he...
New Hampton’s Dillon Roberson gets loose underneath the basket for a layup during Friday night’s game against Oelwein.
Before the season started, New Hampton boys basketball coach Chad Sweitzer made a pronouncement — Oelwein’s Northeast Iowa Conference losing skid that stretches back to 2012 will come to an end this year. “I just don’t want it to be against us,” Sweitzer said at the time. So there was a reason the...
Among the former New Hampton players expected to compete in the Chickasaw Hoops Club Alumni Tournament is Kyle Smith, who now plays college basketball at Central in Pella.
    It wasn’t that the Chickasaw Hoops Club didn’t find its annual golf outing to be a fun, enjoyable or even a profitable fundraiser.    But something was missing.    “We honestly didn’t get a lot of former basketball players back,” said Hoops Club member Bruce Zwanziger. “We’d get a good turnout...
Tristan Sweitzer was named to the Northeast Iowa second team at the conclusion of the 2016-17 season.
Chad Sweitzer chose his words carefully, but it didn’t take long to realize that the New Hampton boys basketball coach wasn’t thrilled with this year’s all-Northeast Iowa Conference teams.  “It’s nice to have three guys honored,” he said, “but ... not having a first-teamer, only having one on the...
