In her final volleyball match as a Trojan, Karissa Schmidt goes up for a kill against Tripoli.
Karissa Schmidt headed off the volleyball floor for the last time of her volleyball career Monday,  and while the Trojans ended the season with a 3-0 loss to Tripoli, Schmidt was proud — really proud actually — of her teammates. “Tripoli’s ranked and I’m proud of how we didn’t cave in,” she said...

With Tripoli looming in the postseason, Turkey Valley ended their regular season last Thursday with a 3-0 loss to Central of Elkader to finish the 2018 campaign with a 4-21 record. The Trojan girls did have a 25-13 loss, but on either end of that was a close 25-21 loss. “I am pleased with their...
Turkey Valley’s Rachelle Smith makes a pass during Thursday’s match against Clayton Ridge.
The word coach Ethan Adams used after his Turkey Valley volleyball team dropped a 3-0 match to Upper Iowa Conference opponent Clayton Ridge Thursday was “streaky.” “We lose our enthusiasm, we lose our fire on the court,” he said. There were good streaks in each of the sets, including consecutive...
Addy Einwalter was 22-for-22 serving with seven aces in the win over Postville.

Turkey Valley’s Katlyn Baumler goes up to make a block in a match played earlier this season.

Turkey Valley lost the first two sets against Kee High in an Upper Iowa Conference volleyball match Thursday. They trailed 9-6 in the third set. Darned if they didn’t come back and win the thing. Not that either Karissa Schmidt or Breanna Busta had any doubt of the final outcome. “No, not really,...
Not only did Breanna Busta lead Turkey Valley in kills, but she tied with the top number of assists and hit eight aces in a 3-1 win over Lansing Kee Tuesday. She’s shown here serving one of those aces against the Kee Hawks.
Even though Turkey Valley’s win over Lansing Kee Tuesday wasn’t a conference match-up, coach Ethan Adams hopes the confidence his team gathered will help when they do play the Upper Iowa Conference match, which is actually next on the schedule. Either way, it was a great way to start the season. “...
