Turkey Valley’s Kyle Langreck gets ready to throw the ball back into the infield during a game played earlier this season.
Turkey Valley scored a run in each of the middle three innings in game one at Starmont Monday and with good pitching, that was more than enough to win the first game of the doubleheader, 3-0. But the Trojans boys piled on the runs in game two, earning a sweep for the day. Kyle Langreck started the...
After hitting a two-run home run, New Hampton’s Noah Fye is welcomed home by teammate Aden Zwanziger during the second inning of Tuesday’s game with Waverly-Shell Rock.
Save for the scoreboard, Tuesday night’s New Hampton/Waverly-Shell Rock baseball game was pretty much a dead heat. Both teams had seven hits, both teams struck out seven times and both teams had two extra-base hits, so despite the fact that his team lost 9-5, New Hampton coach Cory McDonald liked a...
 Josie Weber is congratulated by Emily Busta and Aleah Hackman after chucking her first varsity win, 7-5 over West Central.
Apparently it takes more than a broken back to keep long-time Turkey Valley coach Frank Wilson away from the softball diamond. He suffered that injury as he fell while putting up a net for the batting cage this spring. But while Justin Izer has taken over as assistant to head coach Junior Hackman,...
 New Hampton third baseman Kayla Crooks, as both shortstop Lauren Frerichs and leftfielder Paige Wisner back her up, throws to first base to record an out in a game against Waverly-Shell Rock Monday night.
New Hampton softball coach Jack Seelhammer isn’t about to panic, despite the fact that his team dropped three straight games this week. “I’m not going to lie, I’d like that Waverly-Shell Rock game back,” he said, “but the bottom line is we lost to three good teams. It’s the little things that are...
Nashua-Plainfield senior outfielder Britney Holthaus is coming off a big week at the plate as she smacked a pair of home runs for the Huskies and collecting five RBIs.
Nashua-Plainfield’s softball team — thanks to two wins recorded in the last week — has already tripled its 2017 win total. That’s the good news. The bad news is the Huskies still have a ways to go. “We are in a rebuilding stage,” coach Hannah Holthaus said, “but I don’t want them to say, ‘Great, we...
Nashua-Plainfield second baseman Kristian Holmvig tries to turn a double play in a game against Turkey Valley played earlier this season.
For Mason Hyde, the equation goes something like this: Two games = two dominating performances. The Nashua-Plainfield senior tossed a three-hitter that included 13 strikeouts and just one walk to lead the Huskies to a 4-0 victory over Eagle Grove last Tuesday. And he left is coach searching for the...
Devin Orthaus is one of eight Chickasaws to record a 50 in competition this season.
As usual, it was an impressive season for the New Hampton trapshooting team, now down to the final meet of the season — the state competition this coming weekend. The only meet last week was a double shoot at Osage on Memorial Day, with an abbreviated roster competing as only 24 Chickasaws took up...
New Hampton’s Savannah Anderson fires a pitch to the plate in a game played against Oelwein last week.
New Hampton may not have gotten a sweep on Thursday, but the Chickasaws certainly showed they belonged. The Chickasaws, behind the five-hit pitching of Savannah Anderson and a key bases-loaded double from Paige Wisner, knocked off Crestwood 4-1 in the opening game of a doubleheader, and while the...
Turkey Valley catcher Simon Schmitt attempts to throw out a basestealer during the Trojans’ game at New Hampton last Thursday.
In its first six games of the season, Turkey Valley’s baseball team had a combined 21 hits. During a Saturday tournament at Crestwood, the Trojans — while defeating the host Cadets — added 20 hits. In one game. Turkey Valley’s win over Crestwood was by a 9-0 score, which could have been even higher...
New Hampton’s Preston Pickar is safe at third base after his slide knocked the ball out of the glove of Crestwood’s  Reid Riley’s glove during the first game of a Northeast Iowa Conference doubleheader Friday in Cresco.
It might have been its ugliest win of the winning streak, but Cory McDonald believes Saturday’s 10-3 win over North Fayette Valley showed something about his team. “We had that big inning in the fifth, and you know what? All three of our seniors — Aden [Zwanziger], Noah [Fye] and Joshua [Fenske]...
