Brianna Bienemann fires up a 3-point shot during a game played against Central Springs during the first week of January.
The game plan in some ways was simple — get the ball inside and limit turnovers — and it proved to be a pretty good one Friday night for the Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball team. Libby Fisher scored 16 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and blocked five shots and the Huskies turned the ball over a...
Breanna Busta had 12 points in Turkey Valley’s win over South Winneshiek in the Trojans’ first game of 2018.
Turkey Valley isn’t as much of a pass-the-ball-until-you-find-the-open-girl team as they were a year ago.  Against North Fayette Valley Thursday, the Lady Trojans only finished with two assists, but they still started the 2018 year with a 53-43 win over the TigerHawks. “We are really more of drive-...
Eli Nymeyer, shown here grabbing a rebound earlier this season, had eight points on 4-for-5 shooting in Turkey Valley’s win over North Fayette Valley.
After Thursday’s 62-50 win over North Fayette Valley, Turkey Valley’s boys have met all of the opponents in the Upper Iowa Conference. And defeated them all. The holiday break was probably good for the team, but it was time to end. “I thought we had great practices over break and got a lot better...
New Hampton’s Dillon Roberson gets loose underneath the basket for a layup during Friday night’s game against Oelwein.
Before the season started, New Hampton boys basketball coach Chad Sweitzer made a pronouncement — Oelwein’s Northeast Iowa Conference losing skid that stretches back to 2012 will come to an end this year. “I just don’t want it to be against us,” Sweitzer said at the time. So there was a reason the...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley heavyweight Tom Clark puts the finishing touches on a pin of Staley’s Preston Thomas during Thursday night’s Doc Carr Duals.
As far as New Hampton/Turkey Valley coach Nick Hemann was concerned Thursday night, it was mission accomplished. It wasn’t because New Hampton/Turkey Valley won three duals to claim the title at what was the Doc Carr Duals this year. And it wasn’t even because the Chickasaws laid claim to at least...
Ethan Leibold scored 26 points with 17 rebounds in the Trojan win over Postville.
Calling someone a beast isn’t generally a compliment, but that was Chris Sullivan’s intent when he gave the label to Ethan Leibold. Just a sophomore, Leibold set the bar pretty high when he set two career highs — 26 points and 17 rebounds —  in a 56-52 win over Postville Friday night. But it took a...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Alex Kriener works to get back points in a match against St. Ansgar’s Jaden Hutchinson in the opening round of the South Winneshiek Invitational Saturday.
Denver had more champs, but New Hampton/Turkey Valley had more “scorers,” if you will. And the lesson of the day on Saturday at the South Winneshiek Invitational was this: It takes an entire team to win a wrestling tournament. Getting points from all 14 of its wrestlers, the Chickasaws got its...
New Hampton’s Dillon Roberson drives around a North Fayette Valley defender during the Chickasaws’ win Saturday night.
The Chickasaws were open for business on Saturday night — and business was good — as the New Hampton boys basketball team employed a workman-like effort, and some solid fundamental basketball, to open up a big second-quarter lead and sustain that through the end of a 65-47 victory over North...
Turkey Valley’s Kassidy Reicks tries to keep New Hampton’s Isabel Leichtman from scoring in the first half of the Chickasaw 70-45 win Saturday.
For a time in the second quarter Saturday night, it looked as if the 1A Turkey Valley girls could stay with the 3A Chickasaws. And even early in the fourth quarter, when New Hampton owned a 20-point lead, Chickasaw coach Chad Pemble wasn’t relaxing. “Turkey Valley is scrappy, they’ve competitive,”...
New Hampton’s Tyler Rentschler knifes his way through two Mason City defenders to score in the second half of Thursday night’s season opener against the Mohawks.
Keagan John stood outside the locker room Thursday night and let out a sigh of relief. “That was my guy that I didn’t box out,” the New Hampton senior said, “but thankfully, Jake [Zwanziger] or whoever was there to block the shot. … Did we foul them? Um, well, they didn’t call it right? So we must...
