Shown eying the basket against MFL, Turkey Valley’s Simon Schmitt brought down seven rebounds in the Trojan win over Lyle-Pacelli.
Turkey Valley’s girls have had close games before. Half of the eight games for the Lady Trojans this season have been decided by seven points or less. The boys, on the other hand, hadn’t had a game closer than 13 points. But both had one in the Border Battle Saturday as both teams played the...
New Hampton’s Hope McDonald puts up a shot during a Border Battle game played Saturday morning against Schaeffer Academy.
At the half, New Hampton’s girls were up by 14 Friday night against Decorah and the next afternoon — as the Chickasaw girls were taking on Schaeffer Academy in Decorah’s “Border Battle” — they were, again, up by 14 at the half. Both ended with big Chickasaw wins as New Hampton’s defense allowed...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Max Babcock turns Lisbon’s Gage Mccoy during a meet against Lake Mills on Saturday at the Battle of Waterloo.
Let’s put it this way, New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s wrestlers weren’t exactly enamored last week when the Battle of Waterloo brackets came out. There were the Chickasaws, the two-time defending Class 2A state dual-meet champions and unbeaten in duals this season, seeded fifth in the Friday morning “...
Shown on her way to a basket after a steal against MFL, Kara Reicks provided a spark off the bench in a very close game at Kee High, Lansing Tuesday.
With four senior starters, Kee High may have had the upper hand this time around, but not by much.  When Turkey Valley coach Carla Nymeyer said her team lost on a last-second shot, she was serious. There was one second remaining on the clock when Lansing Kee got off a shot that won Tuesday night’s...
New Hampton’s Tristan Sweitzer drives to the basket during the second half of Tuesday night’s game against Waverly-Shell Rock.
Ryan Rausch may be less than a month into his boys basketball head coaching career, but he’s been around the sport  long enough to know that shooting 26.2 percent from the floor just isn’t going to cut it. New Hampton went ice cold Tuesday night, and the result was a 60-29 loss to Waverly-Shell...
Alexa Wemark looks up after forcing a jump ball during the second half of Tuesday’s game against Waverly Shell Rock.
The first, third and fourth quarters were just fine for the New Hampton girls basketball team Tuesday night, but unfortunately, they’re called quarters for a reason; in other words, there are four of them. “We take away that second quarter and we’re right there with them,” Chickasaw coach Chad...
Turkey Valley’s Jason Herold puts up a shot in a recent game against New Hampton.
Even though Turkey Valley had its best shooting percentage of the season, it was the defense Chris Sullivan talked about first after his Trojans brought home a win from Lansing Tuesday. “Tonight, we played extremely hard on the defensive end for four quarters,” he said after the 65-21 win over the...
NH/TV’s Tayton Messler, shown here locking up an Oelwein wrestler last week, recorded a pin in a win over Maquoketa Valley on Tuesday.
Nick Hemann was on to something Wednesday morning. The night before, his New Hampton/Turkey Valley team rolled by Maquoketa Valley 76-3 and survived a less-than-inspired performance to beat North Fayette Valley 42-28, and while the veteran coach wasn’t ecstatic — heck, he wasn’t even close – with...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Isaac Chambers drives to the basket as teammate Austin Bienemann (5) sets up a screen during a game against Mason City Newman.
Sam Brown is really going to appreciate the fact that his Nashua-Plainfield players love to play the game of basketball, because after a relatively quiet stretch in the schedule, things are about to heat up for the Huskies. Nashua-Plainfield heads to Osage on Friday to kick off a four-game, seven-...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Faith Carpenter goes past a Mason City Newman defender as she brings the ball up court during last Tuesday night’s Top of Iowa Conference game.
For Nashua-Plainfield’s girls basketball team to turn the proverbial corner, the Huskies have to overcome one issue — the number of turnovers they commit. Those miscues cost Nashua-Plainfield dearly in its most recent two games a it fell to Mason City Newman 55-17 last Tuesday and to St. Ansgar 51-...
