New Hampton wrestling

Top-ranked New Hampton picked up another state qualifying banner Tuesday.
After a quick 54-27 win over Charles City — which only took 40 minutes — New Hampton’s wrestlers earned yet another banner for the Chickasaw gymnasium as they won their regional with a 57-17 victory over Clear Lake to qualify for the state dual meet, which takes place next Wednesday. In the final...

For 364 days, New Hampton/Turkey Valley senior Areon Day lived with the disappointment of the 2017 Class 2A sectional tournament.

Noah Fye
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Noah Fye may not like the injury or the brace it means he has to wear, but the New Hampton senior is more than ready to return to the mat. “I’m not saying I don’t feel it or anything, but I just want to get out there and wrestle,” said Fye, who hasn’t wrestled since he...

Evan Rosonke didn’t know which match sealed New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Northeast Iowa Conference championship Saturday. As it turns out, it was his. When the sophomore pinned Crestwood’s Judd Grover in the championship round, it ended a see-saw battle between three teams for first place, giving...
With his next win, Evan Rosonke, shown here completing a takedown earlier this month during a quadrangular, will become the ninth New Hampton/Turkey Valley wrestler with 30 or more wins this season.
Given the choice, New Hampton/Turkey Valley obviously would take winning a state wrestling championship over claiming the Northeast Iowa Conference tournament title. But that doesn’t mean this Saturday’s tournament in Waverly isn’t important to the Chickasaws. “It’s a big deal for me and it’s a big...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley heavyweight Tom Clark puts the finishing touches on a pin of Staley’s Preston Thomas during Thursday night’s Doc Carr Duals.
As far as New Hampton/Turkey Valley coach Nick Hemann was concerned Thursday night, it was mission accomplished. It wasn’t because New Hampton/Turkey Valley won three duals to claim the title at what was the Doc Carr Duals this year. And it wasn’t even because the Chickasaws laid claim to at least...
Logan Hopp will compete at this weekend’s NCAA Division II national tournament.
They’ve been down this road before, but make no mistake about it, there’s a sense of urgency for Jordan Roths and Logan Hopp.  The two 2012 New Hampton High School graduates are embarking on their last great journey this weekend as the two Upper Iowa University student-athletes join two of their...

For four days inside Wells Fargo Arena, the New Hampton wrestling team displayed the guts and fortitude that was such a huge part of the 2016-17 Chickasaws.  And while the hardware was nice, what may have separated this team from so many others in Iowa was this: They did it for each other.  Ask...

New Hampton put together a brilliant performance in the quarterfinals of the Class 2A state wrestling tournament Friday afternoon.  Michael Millage at 126 and Noah Fye at 132 scored major decisions to get the Chickasaws off to a strong start. Keaton Geerts, who won a state title at 132 last year,...
Ryan Gorman stood outside the Decorah High School locker room Saturday afternoon and was asked about his quest for an individual state wrestling championship.  He smiled and cut the reporter off.  “Whoa, the ultimate goal is to win the duals,” he said, “and then we can talk about the other stuff...
