New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Claire Quirk takes Western Dubuque’s Mia Lindauer to her back during the first round of the Iowa Wrestling Coaches Association’s state girls tournament that was held Friday and Saturday in Waverly, and although Quirk would fall in this match, she reeled off seven straight victories to finish third in her weight class.
Before last summer, Claire Quirk had never stepped on a wrestling mat … or at least she had never wrestled on one. Now, she’s in the history books. The New Hampton/Turkey Valley junior became the first state placewinner in school history as she brought home a third-place medal from the Iowa...
Turkey Valley’s Kannon Leuenberger blows past his defender during a varsity doubleheader against North Fayette Valley earlier this month.
Although they were playing against a West Central team who had won just two games entering play, the Turkey Valley boys basketball team was all business on Tuesday night. The Trojans jumped out to a 30-2 lead in the blink of an eye against the Blue Devils. This excellent start allowed them to...
New Hampton girls golf coach Eric Olson carries the 2019 state championship trophy after his Chickasaws claimed the team title last May in Ames.
When Eric Olson took over as the head coach of the New Hampton girls golf team in 2011, his goal was to turn what was a struggling program into a competitive one. “I decided to take the girls golf job after being the boys assistant for five years for the challenge of rebuilding the program,” Olson...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley senior Kael Glenn picks up back points before pinning Waukon’s Lance Egan.
Let’s just be frank here: It wasn’t the Senior Parents Night the New Hampton/Turkey Valley wrestlers wanted. Oh, the Chickasaws will take the win — a 63-14 thrashing of Waukon — and they’ll take the crowd; as usual, NH/TV drew a big crowd to the old high school gym. But what they really wanted was...

New Hampton junior Hope McDonald shows her focus as she puts up a shot during last Tuesday’s NEIC doubleheader with Charles City.
It may have been a little closer than the New Hampton girls basketball team had hoped, but the Chickasaws were able to top Charles City on Tuesday 72-60 to sweep the season series against the Comets. Charles City held a 45-36 advantage midway through the third quarter and seemed to be gaining...
New Hampton’s Alexa Wemark makes a move to get to the basket in the loss against the Cadets.
On a night in which Crestwood’s Sharon Goodman became the all-time leading scorer for the school, New Hampton fans, players and coaches politely applauded the work of the 6-foot-3 Cadet senior post. But coach Chad Pemble won’t miss trying to draw up a game plan that will hold the scoring down for...
Turkey Valley’s Kara Reicks drives to the hoop in the victory over North Fayette Valley on Friday.
Forcing turnovers has been critical to the success of the Turkey Valley boys and girls basketball teams all year, and the varsity doubleheader at Clayton Ridge last Tuesday was another example of this. The Trojan boys totaled a season-high 21 steals, while the girls team finished with 24. This...
