    Hearing a pop in your ankle is never a good thing.

New Hampton’s Kerigan Tenge puts down a spike against Waverly-Shell Rock Saturday at the Northeast Iowa Conference tournament.

Keagan John gets the ball just over the hands of an outstretched GHV defender on a 26-yard scoring pass to Mason Cleveland.
  New Hampton used a fast start and a stingy defense to roll to a 28-10 victory over Garner-Hayfield-Ventura Friday night, and in the process, set up a winner-take-all game against Clear Lake next week.

One of Nashua-Plainfield’s best weapons this season has been the ability of setter Sydney Hansen to come up with tips for kills.
    For a few moments — OK, maybe more than a few — Nashua-Plainfield coach Amber Carter was thinking about sending out an all-points bulletin to find her volleyball team last Tuesday.    But the Huskies “returned” on their own to finally put away West Fork 25-23, 25-20, 21-25, 10-25, 15-10 in both...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Brock Dietz is in the lead midway through the race  at the New Hampton Invitational last week.

Two of the Friday defensive leaders for Turkey Valley team up on this play earlier in the season. Kannon Leuenberger [42] finished with 14 tackle points and Eli Nymeyer recovered a fumble.
