Orange, the “color” for leukemia,  was definitely in vogue Tuesday at the Nashua-Plainfield High School gym. And all that orange — on both the Nashua-Plainfield and the New Hampton sides of the gym — meant a lot to one Nashua family. Here’s the story: Earlier this month, Nashua-Plainfield senior...
New Hampton’s Paige Wisner passes the ball to a teammate during Tuesday’s season-opening volleyball match against Nashua-Plainfield.
New Hampton got off to a fast start Tuesday in its season opener against Nashua-Plainfield. The Chickasaws also had a fast “middle.” And they closed out the night with a flourish. To put it simply, it was a dominating performance as New Hampton cruised to a 25-8, 25-12, 25-10 non-conference victory...
New Hampton’s Mason Cleveland fires to first base to complete a double play in the third inning of Tuesday night’s Class 2A district game with North Fayette Valley.
Mason Cleveland figured Tuesday night sooner or later his New Hampton teammates would bust open the game, but even if they didn’t, the Chickasaws would be just fine. They were, thanks in large part to a monster game from Cleveland, who figured in both New Hampton runs at the plate, completed a...
Despite a rough start, Turkey Valley’s Cale Reicks pitched a 4-1 win over Edgewood-Colesburg in the first round of the district tourney Tuesday.
District time can be unpredictable. Turkey Valley pitcher Cale Reicks doesn’t usually get nervous on the mound, but maybe he was in the first inning against Edgewood-Colesburg. He doesn’t usually pitch high and outside, but this time he did. “I guess we were lucky to get out of that first inning...
Jordon Snyder, shown here delivering a pitch in a game against MFL-Mar-Mac earlier this season, tossed a five-hitter that included six strikeouts and no walks in a win over Postville Thursday.
How do you turn nine hits into 18 runs?  In the second game of a doubleheader sweep over Postville Thursday, walks helped the Trojans earn an 18-3 win, scoring the highest run total of the season. Three different Pirate pitchers threw a total of 13 walks in the Trojan win.  Turkey Valley, on the...
All four of New Hampton’s infielders — (from left) Aden Zwanziger, Mason Cleveland, Noah Fye and Ryan Anderson — shown here standing at attention during the national anthem at a recent home  game, made spectacular plays in the Chickasaws’ 7-3 win over Lansing Kee on Friday.
Braydon Fisher understandably has no regrets when it comes to his decision to play baseball this summer. “I love playing baseball with this team, and I love playing anything for New Hampton,” the senior outfielder said after the Chickasaw concluded a wildly successful regular season with a 7-3 win...
Rachel Rinken rounds third, while in the background the ball is yet to reach Crestwood's cutoff girl, shortstop Shannon Pisney.
New Hampton's bats got going in the seventh inning of its regional semifinal game Friday at Cresco, but the Cadets struck down what would by the tying run, winning the game 2-1. On a hit by Kallie Olson, New Hampton coach Jack Seelhammer sent one of the teams fastest runners — Rachel Rinken —...
Nashua-Plainfield second baseman Kristian Holmvig celebrates after Austin Bienemann applies the tag on a would-be Rockford base stealer during last week’s game against Rockford.
All of a sudden, the Nashua-Plainfield team has heated up. The Huskies won three of four games in the past week — beating Rockford 7-6, pounding Lake Mills 12-6, falling to Hampton-Dumont 6-5 and routing Tripoli 10-0 — and their timing couldn’t be better. “We’re red hot right now, and with the...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Regean Tobin slides safely into home during the Huskies’ 10-3 win over Belmond-Klemme on Tuesday night.
If Hannah Holthaus has learned one thing about her Nashua-Plainfield softball team in her first year of coaching, it is this:  The Huskies are a resilient bunch. And they showed it last week. After playing one of their worst games of the season in an 11-1 loss to Rockford on Wednesday, Nashua-...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Meghan Wright watches her first inning home run leave the “yard” in Tuesday’s regional game.
Nashua-Plainfield needed a good start in Tuesday’s Class 2A regional opener against Belmond-Klemme. Thanks to Meghan Wright and Toyia Griffin, the Huskies got it. The two hit back-to-back two-run home runs in the first inning, and Nashua-Plainfield cruised to a 10-3 win over the Broncos. “I think...
