New Hampton’s Alexa Wemark finds an open lane during the Chickasaws’ 52-24 Northeast Iowa Conference win over Decorah Friday evening.
Playing last year on New Hampton’s ninth-grade team, Hope McDonald made a big transition this year, skipping the junior varsity squad altogether and going right to playing varsity. And as a starter, from game one. “Those first games I was a little nervous,” said the sophomore, “especially that...
New Hampton’s Dillon Roberson and Waverly-Shell Rock’s Hogan Hansen chase after a loose ball during the second half of Saturday night’s game.
New Hampton basketball coach Ryan Rausch thinks the growth of his team this season could be seen crystal clear on Friday night in Decorah. The host Vikings had closed the first quarter with a 14-2 run to take an 18-11 lead. “You know, earlier in the season, we would have let it get away from us,”...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Max Babcock turns Charles City’s Rousch Jaegar to his back in the 145-pound title bout at Saturday’s Northeast Iowa Conference tournament.
Carter Reicks didn’t celebrate when he became the third New Hampton/Turkey Valley wrestler — joining Max Babcock and Evan Rosonke — to earn a Northeast Iowa conference championship Saturday at the NEIC meet in Charles City. It was more a sigh of relief. The top seed in the tourney at 220, Reicks...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Evan Rosonke is one of four Chickasaws who are ranked as the team heads to the Northeast Iowa Conference tournament on Saturday.
It says something about the depth on the New Hampton/Turkey Valley wrestling team that just a few days before the Northeast Iowa Conference tournament, the Chickasaws lineup wasn’t quite set. “Here we are three days before the conference and we’re not sure yet and maybe that’s weird,” co-coach Andy...
New Hampton senior Tanner Lane beats a double team with a pass to an open teammate in a game played earlier this season.
It’s a simple fact when it comes to high school basketball games; when a team shoots better than 60 percent from the floor, it’s going to win … and usually by a large margin. New Hampton provided the proof on Monday night as the red-hot Chickasaws, who hit 62.6 percent of their field goal attempts...
Nashua-Plainfield's defense plays against Northwood-Kensett in a home game earlier this month.
Dreadful starts in at the start of both halves cost the Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball team dearly last week in a 68-21 loss to Mason City Newman. The Knights jumped out to a 26-7 first quarter lead, extended the advantage to 38-13 at halftime and then outscored the Huskies 24-4 in the third...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Luke Cerwinske, who had his best game of the season against Mason City Newman last week, scores a fast break basket during a game against Northwood-Kensett earlier this month.
Nashua-Plainfield’s record may just be 6-7, but the Huskies may be the last team anyone wants to see when the playoffs begin next week. The Huskies, after all, have taken some giant strides this season, and although they’ve yet to topple one of the Top of Iowa East Division powerhouses, they’re...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Kollyn Lentz works for a takedown during a tournament last month.
Al Frost has seen a lot in his long career as a high school wrestling coach, but he’s never had one like last week. And so as he prepares his Nashua-Plainfield wrestling team for this Saturday’s Top of Iowa Conference meet, he’s not sure what he’s going to get. “We just haven’t had a lot of...
Jacob Reicks went 4-0 at Riceville with two falls and two forfeits.
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s wrestling team got more than just four relatively easy dual wins on Saturday at the Cat Duals in Riceville, a tournament the Chickasaws hopped into after the Ankeny Duals were cancelled because of Friday’s winter storm. Not only did the Chickasaws dominate Waukon,...
New Hampton’s Maddi Moorman puts up a shot in the first quarter of Saturday night’s game against Cedar Falls.
Forget the final margin, New Hampton girls basketball coach Chad Pemble had every reason to be proud of his Chickasaws Saturday night. Yes, Cedar Falls came away with a 66-50 non-conference victory, but New Hampton gave the Class 5A sixth-ranked Tigers fits, especially in the first half. “I loved...
