It may have been a little closer than the New Hampton girls basketball team had hoped, but the Chickasaws were able to top Charles City on Tuesday 72-60 to sweep the season series against the Comets. Charles City held a 45-36 advantage midway through the third quarter and seemed to be gaining...
New Hampton’s Alexa Wemark makes a move to get to the basket in the loss against the Cadets.
On a night in which Crestwood’s Sharon Goodman became the all-time leading scorer for the school, New Hampton fans, players and coaches politely applauded the work of the 6-foot-3 Cadet senior post. But coach Chad Pemble won’t miss trying to draw up a game plan that will hold the scoring down for...
Turkey Valley’s Kara Reicks drives to the hoop in the victory over North Fayette Valley on Friday.
Forcing turnovers has been critical to the success of the Turkey Valley boys and girls basketball teams all year, and the varsity doubleheader at Clayton Ridge last Tuesday was another example of this. The Trojan boys totaled a season-high 21 steals, while the girls team finished with 24. This...
New Hampton’s Kaylee Eggerichs matched her career high with a 20-point outburst against Oelwein on Friday.

New Hampton senior Austin Bast leads a fast break during Friday night’s game.
Conner Rochford was, in a word, frustrated when 2019 ended. The New Hampton junior absolutely, positively knew he was a better basketball player than he had shown before Christmas, when he shot a mere 15.6 percent of his shots from the field and averaged 2.8 points a game. “I guess the big thing is...
Ethan Leibold’s teammates maul him after he was honored for scoring 1,000 points. Leibold also broke the school record for career points at Turkey Valley, previously held by his current coach, Chris Sullivan.

Lisa Rude, shown here with Raelyn Webster and Nicole Mulford during introductions at the 2013 state tournament, is returning to the program as the Chickasaws’ head coach.
Lisa Rude isn’t going to lie — she missed coaching softball. So when New Hampton softball coach Jack Seelhammer announced after last season that he was retiring after 13 seasons at the helm, Rude was more than a little interested. “I had to figure out if it could work with my schedule because who...
