New Hampton volleyball

New Hampton’s Savannah Anderson led the Chickasaws in kills during a 2017 season in which she and her teammates advanced to the Class 3A regional final match.
Picking New Hampton all-conference players might have been especially hard this year with the depth and talent the Chickasaws displayed. But since coaches can’t vote for their own players, it was out of coach Jess Geerts’ hands entirely. New Hampton earned one all-conference first team spot as...

New Hampton’s Kerigan Tenge puts down a spike against Waverly-Shell Rock Saturday at the Northeast Iowa Conference tournament.
     Rachel Rinken lowered her voice after the Northeast Iowa Conference volleyball tournament concluded and looked around. She wanted to make sure no one heard her talk about a certain team.     "We did get a little tired at the end and it slows you down a little," she said after she helped the...
New Hampton senior Kaelyn Ambrose helped the Chickasaws claim their third BCLUW tournament title in the past four years.
     For the third time in four years, New Hampton came away with the title of the BCLUW Tournament Saturday, but it wasn't easy.     Well, maybe the first two matches were.     After defeating Collins-Maxwell and East Marshall 2-0, the Chickasaws lost to West Marshall 2-1 in their pool...
After New Hampton’s first-set win over Waverly-Shell Rock Tuesday, Savannah Anderson shows why she leads the Chickasaws in kills this season — she can jump.
     There may have been just a moment or two of sadness after the Chickasaw 3-1 loss to Waverly-Shell Rock Tuesday night, but it didn’t last long.     It was senior night at the school, and it was a good volleyball match. As the seniors — including Callie Speltz, Kaelyn Ambrose, Kallie Olson,...
New Hampton’s Bailey Knowlton receives a serve during Saturday’s tournament in Charles City.
    The 12th-ranked (3A) New Hampton volleyball team stumbled a little bit Saturday, winning two matches and losing two at a Charles City Tournament loaded with talented teams.    The nine-team loop included Janesville, the top ranked team in Class 1A, and Tripoli, ranked sixth in 1A, as well as...
Both the Chickasaw kill leaders are shown in action from an earlier Chickasaw win over Decorah. In Tuesday’s 3-0 victory over Oelwein, Savannah Anderson [front] and Kaelyn Ambrose each turned in eight kills.
     Just one look at the scores told you how well New Hampton’s volleyball team played Tuesday at Oelwein. But if that’s not enough, just listen to head coach Jess Geerts.    “Last night we started strong, stayed strong, and finished strong.” she said. “There was no letting them play with us....

New Hampton celebrates a point during their three-set win over Crestwood Tuesday night.
    Even though New Hampton won their first two sets against Crestwood Tuesday, 25-18 and 25-11, the third set wasn’t going as well.
