Cale Reicks

Despite a rough start, Turkey Valley’s Cale Reicks pitched a 4-1 win over Edgewood-Colesburg in the first round of the district tourney Tuesday.
District time can be unpredictable. Turkey Valley pitcher Cale Reicks doesn’t usually get nervous on the mound, but maybe he was in the first inning against Edgewood-Colesburg. He doesn’t usually pitch high and outside, but this time he did. “I guess we were lucky to get out of that first inning...

Turkey Valley’s Mason Goerend picks up the double he just hit in a game against Kee High during an Upper Iowa Conference doubleheader with Kee High that was played on Thursday.
At the beginning of the season, Turkey Valley coach Dan Stepan looked for Kee High to be not only a team to beat in the Upper Iowa Conference, but a top contender in Class 1A. That probably didn’t change after the Kee Hawks defeated the Trojans 13-2 and 12-2 in a doubleheader Thursday, a day after...
