Nashua-Plainfield senior Mason Hyde follows the block of Tanner Haut during a game played earlier this season.
     They took their lumps as sophomores and juniors to experience games as seniors like the one coming up on Friday.     Thanks to a come-from-behind 26-12 win over West Fork last Friday, Nashua-Plainfield will be playing its most meaningful game this late in the season since the Huskies advanced...
Members of the New Hampton girls cross country team warm up before the Mason City Invitational last month, but Thursday, the Chickasaws get to run at home as the New Hampton Invitational will be held.
    The one and only chance to watch the New Hampton cross country team at home takes place Thursday, Oct. 5 at the New Hampton Golf and Country Club.    Runners from Turkey Valley, Nashua-Plainfield, Sumner-Fredericksburg, Central Springs, Clayton Ridge, Crestwood, Denver, Dunkerton, Lansing Kee,...
Perhaps the biggest improvement in times this year has come from Turkey Valley sophomore Lucas Scheidel, who set his second personal record of the season at Crestwood Saturday.
    For the first time in three meets, Turkey Valley’s boys had the numbers for a varsity team score when they ran at the Crestwood Invitational Saturday.    But just barely. While most of the other school had the luxury of throwing out a score or two, all the Trojan scores counted, and they came...
Chickasaw senior Jared Aegerter finished the Crestwood course with a time of 23:24 Saturday.
    Never underestimate the importance of a good start. A couple of Chickasaw runners ran well right from the beginning of the Saturday Crestwood Invitational, where the New Hampton’s girls were fourth of the seven schools at the meet and the boys were sixth of seven.    Following the junior high...
Katlyn Baumler laces one of her four kills in a win over Postville.

New Hampton’s Bailey Knowlton receives a serve during Saturday’s tournament in Charles City.
    The 12th-ranked (3A) New Hampton volleyball team stumbled a little bit Saturday, winning two matches and losing two at a Charles City Tournament loaded with talented teams.    The nine-team loop included Janesville, the top ranked team in Class 1A, and Tripoli, ranked sixth in 1A, as well as...

New Hampton's margin for error got a lot slimmer Friday night as the Chickasaws dropped their first Class 2A, District 2 game of the season as Crestwood came away with a 13-7 victory. The Chickasaws fell to 4-2 overall and 3-1 in district play on a night. The Cadets, who improved to 3-1 in district...
New Hampton senior Hannah Heit finished with a season-best time at Jesup Tuesday, as did many of the Chickasaw runners.
    Both head coach Jamie Quass Ohrt and assistant coach Bob Vorwald made comments to the cross country runners before the Jesup meet Tuesday.    Ohrt told the athletes it would be a perfect day to break records with low temperatures, a flat course and not much wind.    “Bob told the varsity girls...
Both the Chickasaw kill leaders are shown in action from an earlier Chickasaw win over Decorah. In Tuesday’s 3-0 victory over Oelwein, Savannah Anderson [front] and Kaelyn Ambrose each turned in eight kills.
     Just one look at the scores told you how well New Hampton’s volleyball team played Tuesday at Oelwein. But if that’s not enough, just listen to head coach Jess Geerts.    “Last night we started strong, stayed strong, and finished strong.” she said. “There was no letting them play with us....
Evan Kalainoff, shown sacking a quarterback earlier in the season, is one of the Huskies ready for action this Friday.
    On further review, Chase Sudol didn’t mind his Nashua-Plainfield football team’s “bye week” as much as he thought he would.    “In a lot of ways, it was good for us,” he said of not playing last week because North Butler forfeited to the Huskies because it didn’t have enough healthy players. “...
