Every single girl out — and coach John Reicks only had...
Carter Stochl is seeking to become a four-time all-NEIC golfer this spring.
In the spring of 2006, New Hampton claimed its second straight Northeast Iowa Conference boys golf title.  Since then, it's been all Decorah all the time.  The 2017 Chickasaws, though, believe they have a team that can end Decorah's reign.  Five of New Hampton's six starters from a year ago return...

With seven seniors lost to graduation last year, getting the six freshmen on this year’s Turkey Valley girls’ track squad off on the right foot is crucial.  And that’s where coach Brian Schmitt knows he’ll get help from his two senior leaders.  Shelby Reicks and Sadie Nymeyer, both just off a top-...

Shelby Schriever looks for a strong season in the discus for the Chickasaws this spring.
For the first time in years, the New Hampton boys track team does not have an athlete returning with state meet experience.  The Chickasaws are also not the deepest team around, either, as coach Scott Frerichs' roster contains just 20 student-athletes.  But there's certainly talent on the track and...
