Brianna Bienemann puts up a shot in a Nashua-Plainfield game earlier this season.
Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball coach was asked in an email about his team’s practice schedule the past couple of weeks because of the winter weather and array of makeup games. His response: “It. Has. Been. A. Struggle.” The Huskies lost four days of school last week to the weather and then...
Nashua-Plainfield’s John Krull leads a fast break during a recent Top of Iowa Conference game.
He may have liked to have seen a little bit better shooting percentage, but make no mistake about it, Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball coach Sam Brown loved watching his team march to the free-throw line Saturday. That ability to get to the line — 45 times, no less — was huge as the Huskies...
Max Schwickerath works for an escape against Independence’s Joe Prieber during Wednesday’s regional duals.
Maybe New Hampton/Turkey Valley co-coach Andy Geerts said it best Wednesday night. “A good, old-fashioned Northeast Iowa dual,” he said quietly and then paused, almost as if he wanted to go back in time and find some way, some how to change the outcome. Independence 36, New Hampton/Turkey Valley 34...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Evan Kalainoff puts the finishing touches on a pin of North Tama’s Tyler Morrison during Saturday’s Class 1A sectional tournament at Clarksville.
The goal for the Nashua-Plainfield wrestling team was simple Saturday: Win a Class 1A sectional team title. The Huskies accomplished their mission, although it didn’t go quite the way coach Al Frost envisioned. “We had some disappointment, I’m not going to kid you,” the veteran coach said after his...
Nashua-Plainfield's Jakob Whitinger wrestles at Saturday's sectional tournament in Clarksville.
Nashua-Plainfield’s dual meet season came to an end Tuesday night, but the Huskies put up a respectable showing in a 47-25 loss to MFL-Mar-Mac, which came into the Class 1A regional duals as the eight-ranked team in the state. The Huskies got wins from Jakob Whitinger (113), Trey Nelson (120),...
Turkey Valley’s Kannon Leuenberger provides the defensive pressure during the Trojans win over South Winneshiek Friday night.
When South Winn hit a 3-point shot with 28 seconds left in Friday’s game against the Trojans, the Warriors cut a Turkey Valley lead — which had been as much as eight points earlier in the quarter — to three points. When Eli Reicks was fouled and went to the line to shoot a pair of free throws,...
Turkey Valley’s Jordan Lukes grabs a rebound during the Trojans’ win over South Winneshiek on Friday night.
After Turkey Valley’s 66-52 win over South Winn Friday, Trojan junior Breanna Busta thought her team passed the test of having back-to-back games — they won 49-42 over Central Thursday — with flying colors. She still had some energy left. But that was before Saturday’s match-up against Kee High. ...
New Hampton’s Austin Flugum spots up from 3-point range early in Friday’s game against Oelwein.
The start was good … and that was about it for the New Hampton boys basketball team Friday night. The Chickasaws jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the game’s first three minutes, and then the proverbial roof caved in as Oelwein used a 33-8 run over the next nine minutes to blow open the Northeast Iowa...
New Hampton’s Kaylee Eggerichs gets an open shot during Thursday’s game against Waverly-Shell Rock.
If New Hampton girls basketball coach Chad Pemble has learned anything about his team the past 2 1/2 months, it is that this group of Chickasaws simply don’t quit. They showed that resiliency Thursday night in a 47-34 loss to Class 4A fifth-ranked Waverly-Shell Rock and they showed it again Friday...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley 152-pounder, Hunter Pesek, looks for an opening against Crestwood’s Hunter Bye at Saturday’s Class 2A sectional tournament.
It was one match during a long day of wrestling, but not only did it energize New Hampton/Turkey Valley Saturday, it told the story of a Class 2A sectional tournament that was simply stupendous for the Chickasaws. Late in the 132-pound semifinal, New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Brayden Anderson was on...
