Chickasaws haul in all-district honors
The New Hampton football team was rewarded by Class 2A, District 2 coaches for its 8-1 regular season and trip to the playoffs in a big way. Nine Chickasaws earned all-district first team honors while another three were named honorable mention. New Hampton players were also honored for their work in the classroom as 16 were named to the all-district academic team. And the Chickasaws landed two of the three district awards as senior Noah Hopp was named the “Lineman of the Year” and Josh Fenske was voted the district’s “Defensive MVP.” "We did very well, and it’s a testament to the hard work our boys put into the season this year,” New Hampton coach Scott Frerichs said. “The team success is the big reason so many individuals were honored, and this was very much a team this year.” In addition to Hopp and Fenske, seniors Ryan Gorman, Keegan Tenge, Kam Pfaffle, Keaton Geerts and Zach Wemark, along with sophomore Noah Fenske, were named to the all-district team.
