Josh Fenske laces a basehit during a doubleheader against Waverly-Shell Rock at Wartburg College's Hertel Field earlier this season.
New Hampton will still meet Charles City in a key Northeast Iowa Conference doubleheader on Tuesday, but the games have been moved to Waverly because Charles City's Sportman's Park is flooded once again. It marks the third straight year the Chickasaws will not play a varsity baseball game in...
Kassidy Reicks rounds first with a double in the first inning of a 5-3 win over Don Bosco Monday.
The 12-21 Turkey Valley softball team may have been considered an underdog when they played a Don Bosco team with an 18-14 record on the Dons home field in the first round of regionals Monday. But when Kassidy Reicks hammered a two-RBI double in the first inning, then scored on a passed ball, the...
Emily Busta throws out a South Winn runner earlier in the same week the Trojan girls split a doubleheader against Clayton Ridge.
For a team that only won two games last year, to finish with a winning record in the Upper Iowa Conference is a definite feather in Turkey Valley’s softball cap this year. But the team needed a walk-off double by Shayla Kuennen to do it. After the Trojans lost 6-5 in game one against Clayton Ridge...
New Hampton junior Connor Hackman delivers a pitch to the plate during last week’s doubleheader against Waverly-Shell Rock.
Keegan Kane’s pitching slump has been put to rest and then some. The New Hampton junior pitched four strong innings of relief to combine with starter Connor Hackman on a one-hitter Thursday as New Hampton rolled to a 9-0 win over Central Springs in their final tuneup before tonight’s critical...
Emily Busta claimed to be “kinda rusty” at the plate early in the season.  But after the Turkey Valley senior belted her eighth and ninth home runs of the season Monday against South Winn, she admits she’s now pretty confident. Her first home run of the night came in game one and batted in three...
Turkey Valley’s Josh Vsetecka delivers a pitch to the plate during the first game of a doubleheader Monday.
Up until Monday, no Upper Iowa Conference team had defeated South Winn’s baseball team, which came into a doubleheader against the Turkey Valley with an 8-0 conference record and an overall mark of 16-4. During the first game of the twin bill, it looked like the Warriors would stay undefeated as...
Lauren Frerichs slides home with a run in the first inning of game two against Charles City Wednesday.
After Savannah Anderson and four of her classmates were honored on Senior Night Wednesday, Anderson’s emotions were raw.  She had just pitched a 3-0 loss to the 4A, third-ranked Comets, but it wasn’t the loss the tears were about. “I’m gonna miss it. A lot.”  Wednesday was the final regular season...
New Hampton’s Noah Fye and Max Babcock wait for a throw down to second base as Waverly-Shell Rock’s Ryan Willis slides into the bag during Monday night’s doubleheader against the Go-Hawks.
New Hampton had just watched an early 3-0 lead turn into a 7-4 loss to Waverly-Shell Rock Monday night. If the Chickasaws wanted to win a fourth-straight Northeast Iowa Conference championship, they almost had to win the nightcap of the doubleheader, yet there was no panic in their eyes; in fact,...
Britney Holthaus
Hannah Holthaus may have the family record for career home runs, but her younger sister one-upped her at least in one category on Monday night. Britney Holthaus’ grand slam helped push Nashua-Plainfield to a much-needed 10-1 win over North Iowa, and her big sister is just fine that the younger...
Nashua-Plainifeld’s Shane Hillesheim slides into home and scores on a passed ball in a game played earlier this season.
Nashua-Plainfield senior Mason Hyde laughed at the question: If God came down and said, one or the other — hitting or pitching — what would he do? “Well, first I hope God doesn’t make me make that choice,” he answered. So, too, does his coach, Levi Miller. “It’s been so good having him back on the...
