New Hampton’s Dillon Roberson gets loose underneath the basket for a layup during Friday night’s game against Oelwein.
Before the season started, New Hampton boys basketball coach Chad Sweitzer made a pronouncement — Oelwein’s Northeast Iowa Conference losing skid that stretches back to 2012 will come to an end this year. “I just don’t want it to be against us,” Sweitzer said at the time. So there was a reason the...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley heavyweight Tom Clark puts the finishing touches on a pin of Staley’s Preston Thomas during Thursday night’s Doc Carr Duals.
As far as New Hampton/Turkey Valley coach Nick Hemann was concerned Thursday night, it was mission accomplished. It wasn’t because New Hampton/Turkey Valley won three duals to claim the title at what was the Doc Carr Duals this year. And it wasn’t even because the Chickasaws laid claim to at least...
Ethan Leibold scored 26 points with 17 rebounds in the Trojan win over Postville.
Calling someone a beast isn’t generally a compliment, but that was Chris Sullivan’s intent when he gave the label to Ethan Leibold. Just a sophomore, Leibold set the bar pretty high when he set two career highs — 26 points and 17 rebounds —  in a 56-52 win over Postville Friday night. But it took a...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Alex Kriener works to get back points in a match against St. Ansgar’s Jaden Hutchinson in the opening round of the South Winneshiek Invitational Saturday.
Denver had more champs, but New Hampton/Turkey Valley had more “scorers,” if you will. And the lesson of the day on Saturday at the South Winneshiek Invitational was this: It takes an entire team to win a wrestling tournament. Getting points from all 14 of its wrestlers, the Chickasaws got its...
New Hampton’s Dillon Roberson drives around a North Fayette Valley defender during the Chickasaws’ win Saturday night.
The Chickasaws were open for business on Saturday night — and business was good — as the New Hampton boys basketball team employed a workman-like effort, and some solid fundamental basketball, to open up a big second-quarter lead and sustain that through the end of a 65-47 victory over North...
Turkey Valley’s Kassidy Reicks tries to keep New Hampton’s Isabel Leichtman from scoring in the first half of the Chickasaw 70-45 win Saturday.
For a time in the second quarter Saturday night, it looked as if the 1A Turkey Valley girls could stay with the 3A Chickasaws. And even early in the fourth quarter, when New Hampton owned a 20-point lead, Chickasaw coach Chad Pemble wasn’t relaxing. “Turkey Valley is scrappy, they’ve competitive,”...
New Hampton’s Tyler Rentschler knifes his way through two Mason City defenders to score in the second half of Thursday night’s season opener against the Mohawks.
Keagan John stood outside the locker room Thursday night and let out a sigh of relief. “That was my guy that I didn’t box out,” the New Hampton senior said, “but thankfully, Jake [Zwanziger] or whoever was there to block the shot. … Did we foul them? Um, well, they didn’t call it right? So we must...
New Hampton’s Kallie Olson drives to the basket during a game against MFL-Mar-Mac earlier this season.
Right off the bat, Waukon had some advantages over New Hampton Friday. Even though the Chickasaws played to a first-quarter 13-13 tie against the Indians, Waukon used those advantages to pull away for a 48-32 win. The next day New Hampton had more of a level playing field when they took on Waterloo...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Areon Day, shown here in last week’s season opener, finished third at the prestigious Cliff Keen Invitational that was held in Independence this past weekend.
New Hampton/Turkey Valley got exactly what it wanted — plenty of tough matches  — this past weekend in Independence.  And when it was over, NH/TV coach Nick Hemann was relatively happy as his Chickasaws finished fourth in the Cliff Keen Invitational team standings at the 31-team tournament that...
The win wasn’t there, but the hustle was. Maddi Moorman, left, and Lauren Frerichs sprint after a loose ball during the New Hampton season opener Tuesday.
At times it looked a bit wild and disjointed on both sides, but that’s what season openers are for. Along with first-game jitters, the New Hampton girls are learning a new system, and it might take a little time. “This was a good first-game test,” said coach Chad Pemble after a 68-62 loss to MFL. “...
