Max Babcock is one of the wrestlers on a highly successful New Hampton team this year.
To say it’s been a long time since New Hampton won a Northeast Iowa Conference wrestling tournament would be an understatement.  Let’s face it, 2004 was a long time ago; in fact, the seniors on this year’s team were preschoolers the last time New Hampton hoisted the hardware at the NEIC.  So the...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Dalton Asche and his Husky teammates head to the Top of Iowa Conference meet on Saturday.
Crunch time has arrived for the Nashua-Plainfield wrestling team, but the question is this: Will good health do the same?  The Huskies battled through a tough final week of the “regular season” last week as they split a pair of duals at North Butler on Thursday and then returned to Greene on...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Abby Lumley gets into the lane for an open shot against Rockford on Monday night.
Persistence finally paid off for Nashua-Plainfield’s Britney Holthaus last week as she pulled herself out of a season-long offensive funk and scored 36 points in a pair of games.  While the Huskies came up short in both games — losing to Mason City Newman 77-37 and Central Springs 75-41 — Holthaus...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Austin Lines (on the floor) and Luke Cerwinske battle for a loose basketball during Monday night’s game at Rockford.
Nashua-Plainfield coach Justin Eiffler’s oft-stated goal for his team this year is to get 1 percent better each day.  For the most part, the Huskies have achieved the goal.  There have been blips — a cold start last Thursday night in a loss to Mason City Newman and a tough night Monday against...
In between their Thursday wrestling meets and a Saturday tournament, Kelby [left] and Cale Reicks help out with sweeping duties last Friday at a Turkey Valley basketball game. And since it was Inauguration Day, they dressed for the occasion.
A third Reicks wrestled this week as Turkey Valley's limited team took on Postville and MFL Thursday and Jesup, Sumner-Fredericksburg and host East Buchanan at the Steinkamp Duals Saturday.  Along with Cale and Kelby, Carter joined the group, which, at times totaled five wrestlers with Jacob Anding...
Turkey Valley’s Sadie Nymeyer gets just enough of the ball to force a West Central turnover on Friday night.
At times, it's hard to come up with a lead for a sports story.  After all, what do you say about yet another Upper Iowa Conference game — this one against West Central Friday — that the Turkey Valley girls completely dominated?  But this time there's plenty. There's the 32-1 run the Lady Trojans...
New Hampton’s Tristan Sweitzer goes high in the air to make a pass to a teammate during the Chickasaws’ win over Denver on Friday night.
Chad Sweitzer didn’t like his New Hampton’s loss to MFL-Mar-Mac on Saturday, but he wasn’t going to lose sleep over it, either.  “We’ve got to play better, no doubt about that,” he said after his team lost 86-79 to the Bulldogs, a day after the Chickasaws pulled away from Denver for a 72-56 win. “...
Jaden Bruess hugs his mother, Diane, during Senior Night on Friday, and luckily the Turkey Valley senior didn’t get his height from his mom, right Jaden?
Turkey Valley's boys had some great numbers as they were recording a win over West Central Friday night. Numbers they hadn't seen since their first game of the season — also against the Blue Devils.  After recognizing a pair of seniors — Nathan Mueterthies and Jaden Bruess — the Trojans rolled to a...
New Hampton’s Lexi Rasmussen and Bailey Knowlton battle for a loose ball during the second half of the Chickasaw win Friday night.
Since Denver only had two wins coming into a non-conference game against New Hampton Friday, the 9-3 Chickasaws were the undeniable favorite.  But no one told Denver. Although New Hampton did score a 51-41 win, it was by no means a runaway.  "Coach [Jordan] Richards put it in an interesting way...
New Hampton’s Ryan Gorman lifts Decorah’s Andy Murphy high off the mat  during Thursday night’s triangular.
Nick Hemann admitted his emotions got the best of him Thursday night.  Yes, there’s plenty of wrestling still to be done this season, but when New Hampton hosted Decorah and Osage in a triangular that night, it was, in some ways, a goodbye to eight seniors who mean so much to the Chickasaw...
