New Hampton’s Isabel Leichtman attempts to use a screen by teammate Emma Nicolaisen to free herself from Clear Lake’s Sara Faber on a drive to the basket during Tuesday’s non-conference game.
If the first half would have lasted three minutes on Monday night, the New Hampton girls basketball team wouldn’t have been in bad shape.  Unfortunately, halves in high school basketball are 16 minutes, and a combination of too many New Hampton turnovers and a Clear Lake offense that was clicking...
New Hampton’s Jake Zwanziger catches fire and nails another 3-pointer during the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s non-conference game against Clear Lake.
The frustration in New Hampton boys basketball coach Chad Sweitzer’s voice came through loud and clear on Monday night.  His Chickasaws had just put up one heck of a fight against a Clear Lake team that began the season in the Class 2A state rankings only to fall 75-68.  “We gave up four points in...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Dawson Schmitt drives to the basket during a game played earlier this season.
It wasn’t exactly how Nashua-Plainfield coach Justin Eiffler and his Huskies wanted to start off 2017.  Then again, the opponent may have had something to do with it as West Fork rolled to a 59-27 victory over the Huskies last Friday night.  “West Fork is a solid team, just like they have been for...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Sydney Hansen had one of her best overall games of the season in the Huskies’ game against West Fork last week.
Maybe there are two lessons to be learned in Nashua-Plainfield’s girls basketball loss to West Fork last week.  First, one quarter does not make a game.  Second, though, is that the Huskies have the ability to play with even elite teams like the Warhawks, who are 8-2 overall and have suffered just...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Dylan Downing, shown here in last month’s Nashua-Plainfield Invitational, continued to show off his improvement last week as he extended his match winning streak to eight before suffering a loss at the Tripoli Invitational
Nashua-Plainfield may not have the power teams it put on the wrestling mat in the 2000s and early part of this decade, but the young Huskies are definitely making progress.  Take last week, for example.  Nashua-Plainfield went 3-2 in duals over the course of two nights and then finished a solid...
Bringing down a rebound for the Trojans is senior Nathan Mueterthies.
    Just a freshman, Ethan Leibold didn't miss a shot when Turkey Valley played their “Border Battle” game Saturday morning.    That's not an exaggeration, he literally did not miss, going 10-for-10 to lead the Trojan boys as they defeated Houston, Minn. 52-34.    The win was a nice bounce back...
Turkey Valley’s Kelby Reicks gets ready to set South Winn’s Lane Schnuelle on the mat for a takedown during Reicks’ 7-2 win Thursday.
The Reicks cousins picked up all the points Turkey Valley scored both Thursday in a pair of dual meets at North Fayette Valley and the Flanagan Invitational at Cresco over the weekend, where the Trojans trailed the field of eight schools.  The Thursday duals ended a long layoff for the Trojan...
New Hampton’s Jake Zwanziger drives past a defender in Friday’s game at Oelwein.
The halftime talk didn't sink in until about three minutes had elapsed in the second half, but when it did, New Hampton took firm control of Friday night's game with Oelwein.  The Chickasaws used a 25-0 run that stretched deep into the fourth quarter on its way to a 61-35 victory that not only gave...
Oelwein defenders rush to try and cover Emma Nicolaisen during New Hampton’s 74-57 win over the Huskies Friday.
Against Oelwein Friday, New Hampton's girls had an insurmountable lead early in the third quarter. Or did they?  When Darian Wegner scored on an offensive putback, the Chickasaws led by nearly 20, 41-22. But the Huskies worked their way back to within 10, 63-53 with just over three minutes left in...
Turkey Valley’s Elli Winter scored six points in the Lady Trojan win over North Fayette Valley.
It looked like Turkey Valley might keep their streak going in the first half of a battle against Springville Saturday night. Although each team had knocked down a half-dozen baskets before intermission, the second-ranked Lady Trojans held a 20-13 lead against the top-ranked Orioles.  Springville...
