Turkey Valley sophomore Jaycie Byrne led the Lady Trojans with 13 points Friday as they were starting the year with a 57-33 win over Clayton Ridge.
The holiday layoff didn’t appear to slow down Turkey Valley’s girls much as they came back from the break with their first win of 2019, over conference rival Clayton Ridge Friday. There may have been just a little rust, as it took a couple minutes for the Lady Trojans to get on the board, but...

After a sluggish first quarter ended with a 4-3 Turkey Valley lead, the Trojans outscored the Eagles 18-0 in the second period. The way his team played in...
With a couple fouls early in the game, Maddi Moorman didn’t get her first points until the third quarter, but then she was on a mission, going 5-for-5 from the field for 10 points in the Chickasaw win over Oelwein.
As a group of Alexa Wemark’s family members filed out of the school lobby after New Hampton’s win over Oelwein Friday, a comment was made about her followers. “Yeah, I made a couple quick ones in the first quarter.” No, Alexa, not a lot of fouls, a lot of followers. But as long as you brought it up...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Max Babcock turns Waverly-Shell Rock’s Cayden Lengreck on his way to a first period pin Thursday night that gave the Chickasaw senior his 100th career victory.
Max Babcock wasn’t a bad wrestler at all last year, after all, he did make the state tournament. But the New Hampton/Turkey Valley senior is a different wrestler this year, and during a tough three-day stretch for the Chickasaws, it was Babcock who provided one of the best silver linings as he...
New Hampton freshman Drake Wemark gets loose under the basket and scores on an inside shot during the fourth quarter of Friday’s game at Oelwein.

Al Frost chuckled at the question, what exactly do the Nashua-Plainfield wrestling team’s managers do? “Maybe a better question is what don’t they do?
