Turkey Valley's boys had some great numbers as they were recording a win over West Central Friday night.

Bringing down a rebound for the Trojans is senior Nathan Mueterthies.
    Just a freshman, Ethan Leibold didn't miss a shot when Turkey Valley played their “Border Battle” game Saturday morning.    That's not an exaggeration, he literally did not miss, going 10-for-10 to lead the Trojan boys as they defeated Houston, Minn. 52-34.    The win was a nice bounce back...
Turkey Valley’s Elli Winter scored six points in the Lady Trojan win over North Fayette Valley.
It looked like Turkey Valley might keep their streak going in the first half of a battle against Springville Saturday night. Although each team had knocked down a half-dozen baskets before intermission, the second-ranked Lady Trojans held a 20-13 lead against the top-ranked Orioles.  Springville...
Jordon Snyder takes the ball away from the Vikings’ Benjamin Ernst.
The height and athleticism by two inside players for Edgewood-Colesburg was more than the Turkey Valley boys could handle Tuesday. The Trojans went to 6-2 in the Upper Iowa Conference with a 62-43 loss to the Vikings.    Ed-Co had 10 points on the board before Turkey Valley even scored, by the...

While Turkey Valley's boys haven't enjoyed the same attention in the past couple of years that the girls have, they're inching their way into some of the top statistical categories that go along with a successful season.  And with their 60-43 win over South Winn Thursday, the Trojans finished the...
Shelby Reicks is honored for her 1,000th career point, which she scored against Tripoli.
As a four-year varsity starter, Turkey Valley's Shelby Reicks probably isn't blindsided often.  But after the Lady Trojans won 55-22 over South Winn Thursday night, the senior had no idea what was coming next as she was honored in between the girls and boys games for scoring her 1,000th career...

Turkey Valley's overall shooting percentage was nothing to write home about as the Trojans were defeating Tripoli Thursday, 51-35.  In all shots taken, the winners made baskets at a 33 percent clip.

Shown in a state tournament game last season, Shelby Reicks earned a triple-double in the first Trojan game of this season.
    The margin of victory in the Turkey Valley girls’ 81-31 season-opening win over West Central probably wasn’t a big surprise, last year the Lady Trojans played the Blue Devils twice and won by 45-and 49-point margins.    Turkey Valley’s boys finished the night Monday with a Trojan sweep as they...
