New Hampton’s Jake Zwanziger (22) and Zach Heying battle for a rebound during Tuesday night’s game against Cedar Rapids Washington.

Chickasaws endure rough season opener

Turnovers, poor shot selection cost New Hampton in loss to Washington

Chad Sweitzer stood in the hallway at New Hampton High School and shook his head.  He knows one game does not make a season — especially when it comes against a Class 4A school with a Division I recruit — but it didn’t take a rocket scientist to realize Sweitzer was not happy.  “We played, especially in the first half, like there was a 10-second shot clock,” he said after Cedar Rapids Washington blitzed his Chickasaws 78-52, “we didn’t get back on defense, we treated the basketball like it was a hot potato and honestly, we didn’t rebound that well. Besides that, it was great.”  More on the story may be found in the Dec. 2 Tribune.
