Up until Tuesday, North Fayette Valley was alone atop the Upper Iowa Conference, but Turkey Valley nudged them out of the spot, avenging one of the two conference losses the Trojans have had this season with a 57-48 win over the TigerHawks.

New Hampton’s Dillon Roberson puts up a shot over Turkey Valley’s Simon Schmitt during Saturday night’s game.
New Hampton senior Tristan Sweitzer admits that he’s always gotten just as much of a kick as making a pretty pass as hitting a key 3-point shot, but what the Chickasaws have shown early in the season is that Sweitzer isn’t the only one loves gift-wrapping an assist on the basketball court.
