New Hampton senior Sadie Tenge delivers a pitch to the plate during the first game of the Chickasaws’ doubleheader with Decorah last Thursday.

Chickasaws open with a bang

New Hampton welcomes back Tenge, goes 3-1 during first week

Sadie Tenge was asked last week how it felt to be finally competing again, and the New Hampton senior answered with a wide smile.

“It feels awesome,” Tenge said. “Being out that first game against Denver, I was so happy. I was finally out there doing what I love, with my teammates.”

Tenge’s return to competition after an agonizing 13 months was one of the highlights of the Chickasaws’ first week of the softball season, as New Hampton went 3-1 — beating Denver 10-6 last Monday night, sweeping Decorah 12-3 and 13-0 Thursday and falling to Class 4A Mason City 5-3 on Friday.
