New Hampton’s Isabel Leichtman, who stands 5-foot-6, looks to drive around Waverly-Shell Rock’s 6-1 Jayme Willemssen.
Chad Pemble stood in the hallway at Waverly-Shell Rock High School and talked about getting his New Hampton girls basketball team over the hump. The Chickasaws had just played Waverly-Shell Rock tough but came out on the short end of a 57-44 score, and while Pemble gave his team an A for effort, he...
With his next win, Evan Rosonke, shown here completing a takedown earlier this month during a quadrangular, will become the ninth New Hampton/Turkey Valley wrestler with 30 or more wins this season.
Given the choice, New Hampton/Turkey Valley obviously would take winning a state wrestling championship over claiming the Northeast Iowa Conference tournament title. But that doesn’t mean this Saturday’s tournament in Waverly isn’t important to the Chickasaws. “It’s a big deal for me and it’s a big...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Sydney Hansen looks for her shot during the first half of last Tuesday’s Top of Iowa Conference game against Mason City Newman.
There are times, Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball coach Josh Smith concedes, that he wouldn’t mind playing in anything other than the Top of Iowa Conference East Division. It is, in a word, loaded, and the result last week was two more losses for the Huskies. “On one hand having a bunch of wins...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Brock Dietz looks for an opening in a recent meet against Forest City.
It isn’t that the last two months haven’t meant anything, but ask Nashua-Plainfield coach Al Frost about the Top of Iowa tournament on Saturday and the excitement rises in his voice. “The real season starts on Saturday,” he said of the 16-team meet that will be held at Forest City and be followed a...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Dawson Schmitt heads down the lane during the Huskies’ game with Mason City Newman last week.
The Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball team split a pair of games last week, falling 70-34 at home to Mason City Newman Catholic on Tuesday before bouncing back to take a 78-50 victory on the road at Central Springs on Friday. Husky coach Sam Brown pointed out the big differences in the intensity of...
Emily Busta goes up against a pair of Clayton Ridge defenders Tuesday night while scoring a game-high 12 points in the 46-18 Turkey Valley win.
Anyone that sees the way Emily Busta cuts through defenders and dives after a loose ball may forget the major surgery she had on her knee last year.  Until they see the knee brace and the bag on ice she straps on after games, including the Turkey Valley 46-18 win over Clayton Ridge Tuesday. “It’s...
Turkey Valley sophomore Keegan Balk steals the ball and goes in for a basket during the Trojan win over Clayton Ridge Tuesday.
With 3:32 left in the first quarter of Turkey Valley’s win over Clayton Ridge Tuesday, the Trojans owned a 12-4 lead, with 10 of those points by the hands of Keegan Balk. “I got the open looks, we were swinging the ball around well and I was open a lot,” said the sophomore. Balk was pretty modest...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Nathan Dettmer picks up back points on his way to a victory in a home meet against Forest City earlier this month.
It wasn’t just the way his “big guns” wrestled, it was the way kids like Shane Hillesheim, Justice Palmier and Dalton Asche fared that made Saturday a pretty satisfying day at the Hudson Invitational for Nashua-Plainfield wrestling coach Al Frost. “It wasn’t as deep as Tripoli was last week,” the...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Austin Bienemann looks for an open teammate during a game played earlier this month in Nashua.
Maybe the most impressive part of the Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball team this year has been its ability to forget the past. The Huskies showed how valuable that trait is last week as they bounced back from a disappointing loss to Rockford to post a 56-33 victory over Northwood-Kensett Friday...
Brianna Bienemann fires up a 3-point shot during a game played against Central Springs during the first week of January.
The game plan in some ways was simple — get the ball inside and limit turnovers — and it proved to be a pretty good one Friday night for the Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball team. Libby Fisher scored 16 points, grabbed 15 rebounds and blocked five shots and the Huskies turned the ball over a...
