After stealing a Tripoli pass, Jordon Snyder goes in for a layup Tuesday.
The season ended for Turkey Valley’s boys in the district semifinal Tuesday night as they were defeated by Tripoli, 46-43. Turkey Valley started the game with a 10-0 deficit, and although they did catch and occasionally lead the Panthers during the game, the ability of Tripoli to hit the 3-point...
A tie-up is forced by Turkey Valley senior Elli Winter, who finished with 14 points in the regional win over Riceville.
Although co-coaches Carla Nymeyer and Dan Stepan made all kinds of decisions during Turkey Valley’s regional opener, the best call may have come before the Lady Trojans took the court against Riceville. Early in the day the decision was made to move the starting time up to 5:30. At 7 p.m., the...

Turkey Valley’s boys wrapped up their conference season with a wallop, and Kee High was on the receiving end.  With the 76-31 win over the Kee Hawks Friday, the Trojans finished a nearly perfect Upper Iowa Conference season at 12-1, winning not only their small school division, but the overall...
Kyle Langreck uses an athletic play to try to keep a ball in bounds during a Turkey Valley home game recently.
After Monday’s win over Tripoli, coach Chris Sullivan said his Trojan boys would be playing the next night, in Postville, a team “we seem to always have battles with right down to the final buzzer.”  Although the game was tight, the Pirates gave Turkey Valley their first conference loss of the...
One of four Turkey Valley seniors to be defending their home court in their final regular season home game tonight [Friday] against Lansing Kee will be Kassidy Reicks.
Should Turkey Valley get past Riceville in the first round of regional action, they could again meet Tripoli, a team they defeated Monday night by a close 58-51 score. The Panthers were 7-12 when the Lady Trojans came into their gym, and with the win, the TV girls went to 12-8.  Turkey Valley led...
Turkey Valley sophomore Breanna Busta battles for the ball during the Trojan loss to Central Tuesday.
It’s not a good sign when only three girls get on the scoreboard, but that’s how many scored in a Turkey Valley loss to Central Tuesday. Trojan senior Emily Busta scored more than half the Turkey Valley points as the girls lost a 36-28 battle on senior night. Busta came in with 17 points, Elli...
Turkey Valley’s Levi Izer (above) looks up court after making a steal with 25 seconds left in regulation while teammate Will Einwalter (below) chases down a loose ball during Turkey Valley’s Upper Iowa Conference game against Central.
Everyone has different ways of relaxing. Take Turkey Valley’s Levi Izer. He relaxed a little during the Trojans’ game against Central Tuesday after making two free throws with 24.5 seconds left in overtime, then relaxed a little more when he knocked down another pair with 11.2 seconds left, giving...
Emily Busta goes up against a pair of Clayton Ridge defenders Tuesday night while scoring a game-high 12 points in the 46-18 Turkey Valley win.
Anyone that sees the way Emily Busta cuts through defenders and dives after a loose ball may forget the major surgery she had on her knee last year.  Until they see the knee brace and the bag on ice she straps on after games, including the Turkey Valley 46-18 win over Clayton Ridge Tuesday. “It’s...
Turkey Valley sophomore Keegan Balk steals the ball and goes in for a basket during the Trojan win over Clayton Ridge Tuesday.
With 3:32 left in the first quarter of Turkey Valley’s win over Clayton Ridge Tuesday, the Trojans owned a 12-4 lead, with 10 of those points by the hands of Keegan Balk. “I got the open looks, we were swinging the ball around well and I was open a lot,” said the sophomore. Balk was pretty modest...
Breanna Busta had 12 points in Turkey Valley’s win over South Winneshiek in the Trojans’ first game of 2018.
Turkey Valley isn’t as much of a pass-the-ball-until-you-find-the-open-girl team as they were a year ago.  Against North Fayette Valley Thursday, the Lady Trojans only finished with two assists, but they still started the 2018 year with a 53-43 win over the TigerHawks. “We are really more of drive-...
