Chickasaws land two on all-NEIC

Coaches put New Hampton’s John on first team, Zwanziger on second team

New Hampton boys basketball coach Chad Sweitzer couldn’t have been much happier with how his Chickasaws fared when it came to the all-Northeast Iowa Conference teams league coaches selected recently.

A year ago, the Chickasaws didn’t have a single selection on the first team and just one on the second team despite finishing all alone in second place in the conference.

This year, despite struggling to a fifth-place finish, the Chickasaws landed one player on each team as senior Keagan John was named to the first team while classmate Jake Zwanziger was a second-team selection.

“They’re both, in my mind, very deserving,” said Sweitzer, whose team finished the season 12-11 overall and 4-8 in NEIC play. “I was really hoping we could get Jake on a team, but after last year, I wasn’t going to hold my breath so I’m real happy with the way it turned out.”
