With the type of halftime leads Turkey Valley's girls have had so far this season, the coaching staff can afford to experiment a bit. In their first three wins, they've led at the half by an average of just over 29 points.    Those successes included a win over Central Friday and a 49-19 victory...
New Hampton’s Tristan Sweitzer drives to the basket in the first half of Thursday’s game at Mason City.
The margin was worse, but Chad Sweitzer saw at least some progress Thursday night when his New Hampton boys basketball team fell to 0-2 with a 79-46 loss to Mason City.  The loss came two nights after the Chickasaws dropped their season opener by 26 points to another Class 4A team, Cedar Rapids...
    Early entries must be postmarked today [Tuesday] for the 39th annual Lions Wrestling Tournament to be held this Saturday, Dec. 10. Walk-ins will also be welcome.   There will be four age divisions with four-wrestler brackets  being determined by weight. The Junior division, 5-6 grades, and the...
The term free throw is a bit of a misnomer, as they're not free and, in fact, at times the shots are very hard to sink.  Although Turkey Valley's boys won their first game of the season, they did so with a paltry 13 percent at the line, but their charity stripe effort in the second game was a...
New Hampton’s Keaton Geerts, shown here working for a takedown in New Hampton’s season-opening meet with Independence, was one of five Chickasaws to wrestle in the finals at the Independence Invitational this weekend.
Yeah, New Hampton is pretty good at wrestling.  Just ask the other 24 teams that took part in the inaugural Independence Invitational Friday and Saturday.  Yet, Chickasaw coach Nick Hemann, as happy as he was with winning a team title, knows winning Indee can only be a stepping stone for his...
You can’t do that. It looks as if Waukon’s Lauren Griffith is stopping the ball for Darian Wegner to take possession, but that’s probably not her intention. New Hampton did get the ball after the kick was called and went on to beat the Indians 59-37.
Anyone who watches Isabel Leichtman knows how aggressive she is on offense. She never stops.  But after the Chickasaws won  Friday night, 59-37 over Waukon, what the team's leading scorer wanted to talk about was defense.  “Lexi [Rasmussen] and Bethany [Zenk] took Waukon's posts out and made sure...
Cale Reicks started his season with a pair of wins at the South Hardin quadrangular Tuesday.
The stories for the Turkey Valley wrestlers may be a bit on the short side this season.  There are seven out for the sport, but a couple that are new to the sport didn’t wrestle in the South Hardin quadrangular Tuesday as the Trojans started competition.  Turkey Valley fell to North Butler 66-12,...
New Hampton’s Jake Zwanziger (22) and Zach Heying battle for a rebound during Tuesday night’s game against Cedar Rapids Washington.
Chad Sweitzer stood in the hallway at New Hampton High School and shook his head.  He knows one game does not make a season — especially when it comes against a Class 4A school with a Division I recruit — but it didn’t take a rocket scientist to realize Sweitzer was not happy.  “We played,...
Shown in a state tournament game last season, Shelby Reicks earned a triple-double in the first Trojan game of this season.
    The margin of victory in the Turkey Valley girls’ 81-31 season-opening win over West Central probably wasn’t a big surprise, last year the Lady Trojans played the Blue Devils twice and won by 45-and 49-point margins.    Turkey Valley’s boys finished the night Monday with a Trojan sweep as they...
Lexi Rasmussen pulled in six rebounds during New Hampton’s 57-37 win over North Fayette Valley.
    Patience paid off for New Hampton's girls basketball team in their second win in as many games Monday, 57-37 at North Fayette Valley.    Even though the Chickasaw girls outscored their TigerHawk hosts in every quarter of the game, it wasn't until the second half that coach Matt Schult was happy...
