New Hampton girls basketball

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...
Shown in a Chickasaw home game earlier this season, Darian Wegner brought home 12 points from a 60-35 win over Independence Monday night.
The long Christmas break, in which the Chickasaw girls only compete with each other in practice, was cut shorter by a day when the Border Battle game from last Saturday was postponed to Tuesday, a day after New Hampton played at Independence. Both games ended with New Hampton wins, 60-35 against...
You can’t do that. It looks as if Waukon’s Lauren Griffith is stopping the ball for Darian Wegner to take possession, but that’s probably not her intention. New Hampton did get the ball after the kick was called and went on to beat the Indians 59-37.
Anyone who watches Isabel Leichtman knows how aggressive she is on offense. She never stops.  But after the Chickasaws won  Friday night, 59-37 over Waukon, what the team's leading scorer wanted to talk about was defense.  “Lexi [Rasmussen] and Bethany [Zenk] took Waukon's posts out and made sure...
Lexi Rasmussen pulled in six rebounds during New Hampton’s 57-37 win over North Fayette Valley.
    Patience paid off for New Hampton's girls basketball team in their second win in as many games Monday, 57-37 at North Fayette Valley.    Even though the Chickasaw girls outscored their TigerHawk hosts in every quarter of the game, it wasn't until the second half that coach Matt Schult was happy...
Hunter Gerber bats away a Nashua-Plainfield pass and grabs it for a steal during New Hampton’s 56-19 opening season win.
It might be stating the obvious, but Chickasaw head basketball coach Matt Schult was very happy with his team’s defensive effort Monday night at Nashua-Plainfield.    Especially since it was the first outing of the season, the 32-5 halftime lead that turned into a 56-19 New Hampton win was...
