Dayton Hansen slips through the opposition defense when the Huskies played at Rockford earlier.
    A fun run usually comes during cross country meets. But Nashua-Plainfield coach Justin Eiffler wants his boys basketball team to have one.    “As a team we are just trying to click as one heading down the stretch of the season,” he said after a win over Clarksville and losses to Osage and...
The top wrestler in the Top of Iowa Conference at 132, Tristen Brase won all four matches by fall Saturday.
    Coach Al Frost’s predictions came up a little short Saturday.    “I thought our kids would finish maybe 11th, 12th in the conference,” he said after the Huskies actually were ninth at the meet among the 16 teams. “We had some boys get some bonus points, those helped us move up in the ranks...
Mckayla Lebeck pulls in a rebound for the Huskies earlier this season. Against Clarksville, her 3-point shot was instrumental in the Huskies’ securing a win.
While team consistency is still not a strength for Nashua-Plainfield’s girls yet, there are plenty of individual accomplishments to talk about.    Like Sierra Fisher’s double-double against Osage, and another for her against Garner-Hayfield/Ventura. Or maybe Abby Lumley’s five steals against G-H/V...

Turkey Valley’s Kyle Langreck looks for an opening in a game played earlier this season.
"Tonight we played our most complete game of the year on both ends of the court."  When the season is winding down, that's a good statement to hear from a coach. It came from Turkey Valley's Chris Sullivan after his team's 65-38 win over Starmont Friday on the road.  That makes it a sweep for the...
Cale Reicks became a repeat Upper Iowa Conference champion pretty much the same way he did last year — by pins.  A year ago Reicks upset the No. 1 seed for the title, pinning him in the championship match after a first-round bye and second-round fall.  The only thing that changed this year was that...
