Rachel Rinken

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’s 4x100 relay team — (from left) Rachel Rinken, Darian Wegner, Bailey Knowlton and Sadie Tenge  — pose for a photo after competing in the Drake Relays.

While they were on opposite ends of the team standings at the New Hampton Coed Invitational, both the host Chickasaws and Turkey Valley girls had their highlights as they competed on a windy, but dry Thursday meet.  The smallest team at the meet, Turkey Valley was only able to muster one win — the...
Maddi Moorman and Kallie Olson made up half of a 4x800 team that posted a time of six seconds faster than any 4x800 in 2016.
This may sound weird, but it’s true: New Hampton’s girls track team was much more impressive finishing second by 75 points Friday than it was winning by 80 last Tuesday.  Sure, Decorah dominated the team race at its own invitational Friday as the Vikings piled up 176 points to the runner-up...
