Turkey Valley’s Cale Reicks fields a ground ball during a game against Starmont last week.
Turkey Valley proved the old cliché is true.

New Hampton’s Lexi Rasmussen, shown here against North Fayette Valley last week, was one of several Chickasaws who enjoyed a strong weekend at the Don Bosco tournament.
Don’t look now, but here comes one sizzling team into the Class 3A regional tournament.That team would be New Hampton as the Chickasaws swept four games at the Don Bosco Classic this past weekend.After a brutal stretch in which the Chickasaws suffered through an 11-game losing streak, New Hampton...
New Hampton senior Trevor Ambrose launches his team- and state-leading eighth home run of the season in a 9-8 win over Charles City on Friday night.
Trevor Ambrose doesn’t hit a lot of “might be, could be” home runs; in fact, he hasn’t hit one all year.What the New Hampton senior has done is smacked a Class 2A-leading eight no-doubt homers, the latest a three-run shot to left field Friday night in a 9-8 opening game victory in a doubleheader...
Turkey Valley’s Delaney Lensing smacks a double Monday during a doubleheader with Kee.
 Just the fact that Turkey Valley scored any runs at all in a doubleheader against third-ranked Kee Monday was a bit of an improvement.The Hawks have pitched 17 shutouts this year, including a 10-0 victory over the Trojans two days earlier at the Decorah tourney.At Jackson Junction Monday, both...
After Riley Schmitt was successful in stealing second base, he decides to try for third and he was safe on this play in the fifth inning of game one against Starmont.
 Even though it was his first varsity one-hitter, Evan Drilling just shrugged after Turkey Valley defeated Starmont 7-1 in the first game of a doubleheader Monday.“I wasn’t really thinking about the number of hits they got,” said the Trojan sophomore. “I just wanted to throw strikes and let my...
New Hampton’s Mya Anderson rips a double to left field early in the Chickasaws’ 12-9 extra-inning loss to North Fayette Valley on Wednesday.
 All of a sudden, the softball is looking like a beach ball to the New Hampton softball team.The Chickasaws broke out their big bats this week as they collected 28 hits in a Northeast Iowa Conference doubleheader sweep of Waukon on Tuesday and then pounded out 18 hits in a 12-9 eight-inning loss to...
New Hampton’s Connor Cleveland is all smiles as he “pops up” after sliding across the plate for the winning run as Waverly-Shell Rock catcher Hunter Destival dejectedly looks on during Tuesday night’s doubleheader.
 New Hampton and Waverly-Shell Rock came to Mikkelson Park virtually tied atop the Northeast Iowa Conference baseball standings.Four hours later, nothing had changed as the two powerhouses battled to a draw — with New Hampton winning the first game 1-0 in eight innings while the Go-Hawks claimed...
With a little encouragement from teammate Sierra Fisher, Mekenna Weiss (13) fires the ball back to the infield.
 To say it’s been a tough season for the Nashua-Plainfield softball team would be a giant understatement.The Huskies have had to deal with a “late start” because of the track and golf teams’ successes this spring and injuries and illnesses have also taken their toll.It didn’t get much better for...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Zach Bond was the winning pitcher in the Huskies’ 4-3 win over St. Ansgar.
 It was, Nashua-Plainfield baseball coach Levi Miller believes, a momentous week for his Huskies.They showed they can beat “anyone,” they learned a valuable baseball lesson and they showed what kind of team they can be when they play a little angry.Add it all up, and the Huskies went 2-1 — rallying...
Wyatt Blazek, shown in the process of stealing second, leads the Trojans in stolen bases this year with 19.
 Just one more win will take the Turkey Valley baseball team past the number of wins they had a year ago. The thing is, they only won eight games during the 2015 season, but with five seniors starters gone from that team — and no seniors on this year's squad — the Trojans still have plenty of room...
