New Hampton girls basketball

Alexa Wemark looks up after forcing a jump ball during the second half of Tuesday’s game against Waverly Shell Rock.
The first, third and fourth quarters were just fine for the New Hampton girls basketball team Tuesday night, but unfortunately, they’re called quarters for a reason; in other words, there are four of them. “We take away that second quarter and we’re right there with them,” Chickasaw coach Chad...
New Hampton’s Maddi Moorman, shown here in a game against Waukon, led the Chickasaws in both scoring and rebounding during Tuesday night’s game at Charles City.
Maddi Moorman talked about transitioning on Wednesday, the afternoon after the Chickasaw girls came home from Charles City with a 60-40 win over the Comets. The only area the NH girls had trouble with, said Moorman, was transitioning. “Other than that we played a pretty good game.” At the start of...
New Hampton’s Hope McDonald turns a steal into a basket during a game against Waukon on Friday night.
There isn’t a loss between the two teams New Hampton played over the weekend as the Chickasaws lost to seventh-ranked Waukon on Friday and Jesup Saturday, a team that went to 4-0 with its win over the NH girls in the UIU Holiday Showdown at the Upper Iowa campus. In both games, the NH girls had to...
New Hampton’s Kaylee Eggerichs gets a pass off despite tough defense by Turkey Valley’s Savannah Schmitt.
It may seem a bit strange when one considers the final score of Monday night’s game between Turkey Valley and New Hampton, but both coaches got what they wanted in their season openers. The Chickasaws’ Chad Pemble saw the balance he believes his team must have this year in New Hampton’s 64-25...
The heartbreak started early in New Hampton’s regional girls basketball game Wednesday. In the first minute, in fact. That’s when Isabel Leichtman went to the floor with a knee injury, and she wouldn’t return. Not having its leading scorer in the game — against a team that’s ranked fourth in Class...
Turkey Valley’s Kassidy Reicks tries to keep New Hampton’s Isabel Leichtman from scoring in the first half of the Chickasaw 70-45 win Saturday.
For a time in the second quarter Saturday night, it looked as if the 1A Turkey Valley girls could stay with the 3A Chickasaws. And even early in the fourth quarter, when New Hampton owned a 20-point lead, Chickasaw coach Chad Pemble wasn’t relaxing. “Turkey Valley is scrappy, they’ve competitive,”...
New Hampton’s Kallie Olson drives to the basket during a game against MFL-Mar-Mac earlier this season.
Right off the bat, Waukon had some advantages over New Hampton Friday. Even though the Chickasaws played to a first-quarter 13-13 tie against the Indians, Waukon used those advantages to pull away for a 48-32 win. The next day New Hampton had more of a level playing field when they took on Waterloo...
The win wasn’t there, but the hustle was. Maddi Moorman, left, and Lauren Frerichs sprint after a loose ball during the New Hampton season opener Tuesday.
At times it looked a bit wild and disjointed on both sides, but that’s what season openers are for. Along with first-game jitters, the New Hampton girls are learning a new system, and it might take a little time. “This was a good first-game test,” said coach Chad Pemble after a 68-62 loss to MFL. “...
Gathering their balloons at the conclusion of a Friday night win on senior parent night are, counterclockwise from right: Lexi Rasmussen, Bethany Zenk, Kayla Gilbert and Emma Nicolaisen.
For just a split second during New Hampton's win over Decorah Friday night, the gym was quiet enough to hear the New Hampton bench start laughing.  “Oh, Emma [Nicolaisen] said something about an 'on fire' emoji,” coach Matt Schult explained when asked about the laughter.  That emoji would pretty...
New Hampton’s Kayla Gilbert is aggressive on defense in a game played earlier this season.
Matt Schult and his New Hampton girls basketball team aren’t going to push the proverbial panic button.  That doesn’t mean, however, that the Chickasaw girls basketball coach was all that happy with Tuesday night’s 67-31 loss to Waverly-Shell Rock.  “I expected more, and I think the girls did, too...
