Stifle is what Turkey Valley’s defense does best. Sloan Huinker, left, and Lydia Schuchhardt put the clamps on during a home game this season.
Turkey Valley started a stretch of five consecutive road games Friday, the end of which will conclude the regular season for the Trojan girls. They played at Starmont against the 6-9 Stars, winning 54-14.  "At times we played really well, at times it looked like we hadn't played in a week," co-...
New Hampton assistant coach Therin Rentschler congratulates head coach Chad Sweitzer after the Chickasaws beat Charles City Thursday night.
New Hampton boys basketball coach Chad Sweitzer knew his team was in for a challenge Friday night.  Not only were the Chickasaws playing a solid Decorah team, they were doing it 24 hours after recording their biggest victory of the season, a heart-stopping 64-60 victory over Charles City.  And for...
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...
Gathering their balloons at the conclusion of a Friday night win on senior parent night are, counterclockwise from right: Lexi Rasmussen, Bethany Zenk, Kayla Gilbert and Emma Nicolaisen.
For just a split second during New Hampton's win over Decorah Friday night, the gym was quiet enough to hear the New Hampton bench start laughing.  “Oh, Emma [Nicolaisen] said something about an 'on fire' emoji,” coach Matt Schult explained when asked about the laughter.  That emoji would pretty...
New Hampton’s Noah Fye puts Waverly-Shell Rock Ian Heise on his back during a 132-pound semifinal match at the Northeast Iowa Conference tournament on Saturday.
Twenty-four hours after New Hampton came up short in ending Waverly-Shell Rock’s dominance at the Northeast Iowa Conference tournament, the results still stung.  “I’m not going to lie,” Chickasaw senior Ryan Gorman said Sunday night, “we wanted this really bad. To not get it done, is going to hurt...
New Hampton’s student section erupts after Keagan John nails a 3-pointer to give the Chickasaws the lead in the waning seconds of Thursday’s win over Charles City.
New Hampton trailed 60-59 Thursday night when Keagan John saw Tristan Sweitzer penetrate into the lane.  The Chickasaw junior knew there was a good chance he was going to get a pass so he was ready as Sweitzer spun, saw John in the corner and hit him with the pass.  “I just decided to take it,”...
New Hampton’s Michael Drewelow goes up for a shot during the second half of Tuesday’s game against Waverly-Shell Rock.
Chad Sweitzer didn’t like the score, didn’t like it one bit, Tuesday night.  But New Hampton boys basketball coach Chad Sweitzer found some things to like in a 70-39 Northeast Iowa Conference loss to Waverly-Shell Rock.  “That was a good, physical basketball game,” Sweitzer said after his team...
New Hampton’s Kayla Gilbert is aggressive on defense in a game played earlier this season.
Matt Schult and his New Hampton girls basketball team aren’t going to push the proverbial panic button.  That doesn’t mean, however, that the Chickasaw girls basketball coach was all that happy with Tuesday night’s 67-31 loss to Waverly-Shell Rock.  “I expected more, and I think the girls did, too...
Max Babcock is one of the wrestlers on a highly successful New Hampton team this year.
To say it’s been a long time since New Hampton won a Northeast Iowa Conference wrestling tournament would be an understatement.  Let’s face it, 2004 was a long time ago; in fact, the seniors on this year’s team were preschoolers the last time New Hampton hoisted the hardware at the NEIC.  So the...
