New Hampton’s Tristan Sweitzer dishes off a pass that turns into one of his game-high seven assists in the Chickasaws’ win over Nashua-Plainfield Thursday.

Chickasaws can live with second

New Hampton rolls by N-P, takes care of Waukon to finish as NEIC runner-up

There were folks who doubted Chad Sweitzer way back in November when the New Hampton boys basketball coach said his team could contend for a top-two finish in the Northeast Iowa Conference.  And those same folks figured the sixth-year coach was way off his rocker when the Chickasaws started the year 2-4 and 0-2 in the NEIC.  On Friday night, though, his Chickasaws showed that their coach knows a thing or two about prognostication and they gave Sweitzer his 100th career victory with a 78-67 victory over Waukon.  The win gave New Hampton an 8-4 NEIC mark, and coupled with Charles City’s 50-43 loss to Decorah, wrapped up sole possession of second place in the conference.  “I don’t know if I’ve ever have a team come together quite like this one,” Sweitzer said. “We had a lot of different guys who needed to find their roles and when they did, we really gelled.”  The rest of the story may be found in the Feb. 14 Tribune.
