New Hampton’s Keaton Geerts takes down Independence’s Tanner Erickson-Dale on his way to a technical fall in a 138-pound semifinal match at Saturday’s district meet.
In the toughest district in the state, six had to be enough for the New Hampton wrestling team on Saturday.  That’s the number of Chickasaws who advanced out of the Class 2A district tournament in Decorah as New Hampton crowned five champions and sent one runner-up to this week’s traditional state...
Turkey Valley’s Kyle Langreck pulls down a rebound during the second half of the loss to South Winn.
The prospects of a season sweep for the Turkey Valley boys over South Winn looked so good on so many occasions late in the game between the large division Warriors and the small division Trojans Tuesday.    But each time the TV boys found some momentum, the Warriors had an answer. It took a double...
Emily Busta eyes the 3-point basket, she scored four of them in Turkey Valley’s 52-28 win over the Warriors Tuesday.
    Turkey Valley’s girls utilized a knee brace, crutches and ice at South Winn Tuesday. And still beat the Warriors 52-28 to go undefeated in the Upper Iowa Conference for the third straight year.    The knee brace belonged to Emily Busta. The junior injured her left knee during her freshman year...
New Hampton’s Emma Nicolaisen and fellow senior Darian Wegner put up 12 points in a loss to Crestwood Monday night.
Although New Hampton played a better game against Crestwood their second time around, the margin of the Cadet win Monday was exactly the same as it was the first time, 29 points, as the Chickasaw girls lost a 76-47 contest at Cresco.  New Hampton had a better overall shooting percentage in this...
New Hampton’s Tyler Rentschler drives to the basket after making a steal late in the fourth quarter of Monday’s game against Crestwood.
A couple of months ago — maybe even a few weeks ago — it wouldn’t have happened, but this is a vastly different New Hampton boys basketball team.   The Chickasaws dug themselves out of two holes — one early and one late — and survived a wild finish to beat Crestwood 68-67 Monday night and keep...
New Hampton’s Drew Boeding turns Algona’s Mitchell’s Priebe during the Class 2A regional dual tournament the Chickasaws won Tuesday night.
Drew Boeding looked around the gym one last time and flashed a big smile.  “To end it like this at home — both as a team and for me individually — it can’t get much better than that,” the New Hampton senior said after New Hampton crushed the field in Tuesday night’s regional duals.  “I loved the...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Dawson Schmitt puts up a shot in a game played earlier this season.
If there’s one lesson Justin Eiffler wants his young Huskies to take from the 2016-17 season, it is this: Slow starts are costly.  The Huskies re-learned that lesson again last week in a 61-45 loss to North Butler and to a lesser degree on Monday in a 68-47 loss to St. Ansgar that dropped Nashua-...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Sierra Fisher shows the grit she’s known for during a game played earlier this season.
In a year where wins have been hard to come by, Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball coach Josh Smith continues to find positives.  And despite losing three games — 46-31 to North Butler, 73-43 to MFL-Mar-Mac and 47-34 to St. Ansgar — he believes his Huskies are heading in the right direction.In two...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Brock Dietz  works for a pin during the third period of his 106-pound title match against North Butler’s Bryce Trees at Saturday’s Class 1A sectional tournament in Nashua.
The good news was Brock Dietz was going to qualify for the district tournament either way; the bad news is the Nashua-Plainfield junior had no idea that the third-place match had punched his ticket.  That meant, in Dietz’s mind at least, he was wrestling for his postseason life Saturday, but he was...
Morgen Kuennenscored her season high Saturday against Clayton Ridge with 21 points on 10-for-13 shooting.
    It wasn't as big of a comeback as a certain football team made Sunday, but when Turkey Valley erased a 21-18 Kee High halftime lead and went on to win 42-39 last Friday, it was still a very big win. Turkey Valley is ranked second in Class 1A and the Kee Hawks are fifth.    The Lady Trojans...
