Nolan Usher had a strong finish in his first-ever appearance at the state cross country meet.
During the final mile of Nolan Usher's inaugural state cross country meet, his coach thought he passed about 15 runners.  He wasn't sure about that figure.  "You can't really count them, you just gotta go!" said the Chickasaw sophomore, who finished in 59th place of 140 runners at the meet Saturday...
Cale Reicks, to the left of the ball carrier, and Scott Kime are about to make a Brandon Bagby sandwich early in Friday’s state playoffs.
Turkey Valley still had a seldom-used play up its sleeve, and it kept the Trojans competitive in a state playoff game against Don Bosco for a time Friday.  But eventually, the Dons shredded the Trojan defense for 75 points — more than the last four TV opponents combined scored —  to end the TV...
New Hampton's Dillon Roberson blocks a pass thrown by North Fayette Valley's Tate Hovden in the second half of Friday's game.
New Hampton gave top-ranked North Fayette Valley everything it could handle Friday night, but the TigerHawks used two second-half touchdowns to post a 21-7 victory in the opening round of the Class 2A state playoffs."I'm proud of you guys and I want you to hold your heads up high," New Hampton...
Shown passing the ball in the Trojan win over Riceville, Kassidy Reicks placed five kills on the Tripoli side in the second round of regional action.
    Against a team like sixth-ranked Tripoli, kills are hard to come by and so are aces. But the Turkey Valley girls put what was nearly their best serving effort of the season into a loss at Tripoli Monday night in regional action.    The 3-0 loss ended the year for the Trojans and it was the...
New Hampton’s Lauren Frerichs, left, and Ellie Ewert both go up for the block, but the Osage hit is going to angle right into the hands of Ewert, who records one of her two blocks in the Chickasaw-Green Devil regional match Tuesday.
The momentum that New Hampton had after an opening-set win over Osage Tuesday night did not carry into the second set.    How quickly it shifted left fans shaking their heads. A little over halfway through the first set New Hampton was pounding the host Green Devils 17-4 and would go on to a 25-9...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Brock Dietz  was the Huskies’ top runner at last week’s Class 1A state qualifying meet.
It wasn’t the finish the Nashua-Plainfield cross country team wanted, but ask coach Jennifer Kalainoff and she’ll tell you it was a successful season.  And she means it, too.  “Obviously, we were hoping to get someone to the state meet,” Kalainoff said, “but one meet on one night doesn’t define our...
New Hampton's Keaton Geerts, left, and Turkey Valley's Wyatt Blazek will be among the players in an exciting Friday night line-up.
The challenges facing the New Hampton and Turkey Valley teams Friday night are, in a word, daunting.  But neither the Chickasaws nor the Trojans are complaining. They’re both in the playoffs. And they aren’t just happy to be here, either.  “We’ve had a lot energy this week,” New Hampton coach Scott...
Keegan Crawford was one of just two seniors who started for the Huskies in their game against West Hancock this past Friday.
The result was predictable last Friday night when Nashua-Plainfield played its last football game of the season.  Yes, Nashua-Plainfield lost big time — 63-0, to be exact — to West Hancock to finish  the season 3-6 overall and 2-5 in Class A, District 3.  But when he considered all his team had...
Jordon Snyder leans into a hill at the state qualifying meet held at Garner.
Although an individual race might seem to drag on forever, Turkey Valley’s Sadie Nymeyer was surprised at how quickly the cross country season passed by this year.  “It’s crazy to think this is our last district meet,” she said after the South Winn girls team she and Shelby Reicks ran for qualified...
Nolan Usher, center, poses with some of the other state qualifiers Thursday at Garner.
    For the second straight year, New Hampton will send a runner to the state cross country meet, which will be held this weekend in Fort Dodge.    Nolan Usher finished 13th in a field of 93 runners in the varsity-only state qualifying meet held Thursday at Garner, as the top-15 runners advanced to...
