Kaelyn Ambrose

New Hampton senior Kaelyn Ambrose helped the Chickasaws claim their third BCLUW tournament title in the past four years.
     For the third time in four years, New Hampton came away with the title of the BCLUW Tournament Saturday, but it wasn't easy.     Well, maybe the first two matches were.     After defeating Collins-Maxwell and East Marshall 2-0, the Chickasaws lost to West Marshall 2-1 in their pool...
After New Hampton’s first-set win over Waverly-Shell Rock Tuesday, Savannah Anderson shows why she leads the Chickasaws in kills this season — she can jump.
     There may have been just a moment or two of sadness after the Chickasaw 3-1 loss to Waverly-Shell Rock Tuesday night, but it didn’t last long.     It was senior night at the school, and it was a good volleyball match. As the seniors — including Callie Speltz, Kaelyn Ambrose, Kallie Olson,...
New Hampton’s Maddi Moorman (14) and Kaelyn Ambrose put up a “wall” as they block a Decorah attack during Thursday night’s Northeast Iowa Conference match.
    New Hampton junior Lauren Frerichs didn’t think her volleyball team was rusty Tuesday night after a week layoff, but coach Jess Geerts thought they were.    The two did agree on one thing — after the Chickasaws won 3-0 over Decorah — that a key to the night was keeping Decorah on the defensive...
Shown getting a kill past Tripoli blockers last weekend, Kaelyn Ambrose finished with 10 kills against Charles City.
    Now that Maddi Moorman is back in the New Hampton volleyball line-up, Lauren Frerichs is out.    One of these days, hopefully, coach Jess Geerts will have a completely healthy team put together on the court. But it didn’t happen Tuesday, as the Chickasaw girls fell in five sets to 4A, eighth-...
New Hampton’s Kallie Olson puts down a kill during the Chickasaws’ win over Don Bosco at the New Hampton Invitational Saturday.
    Tripoli hadn't lost a set yet, and up to Saturday, neither had New Hampton.    So somebody's record had to give when the two teams met in the Chickasaw volleyball invitational, and unfortunately, it was New Hampton's record.    But on the way to their second-place finish, the NH girls defeated...
First team honors at the conclusion of the 2017 softball season went to Lauren Frerichs, shown coming in with one of her four runs scored in a regional game against Waukon.
While at the plate, New Hampton’s Lauren Frerichs had the fifth-best batting average in Northeast Iowa Conference softball games this season, which helped her earn first team honors at the end of the Chickasaw campaign.    Frerichs was the only first team pick for the NH girls, but Kallie Olson,...
Kallie Olson hit her team-leading third homer of the season against Waukon.
It was just an off-handed comment, but Kaelyn Ambrose hit the nail on the head Thursday when talking to teammates."I told them I was feeling pretty strong and I said 'I think I'll hit a dinger tonight,'" said the New Hampton junior.You could have knocked her over with a feather that night when she...
New Hampton girls track coach Jeanette Laures had very few complaints when it came to her team’s performances Tuesday night.  The Chickasaws won three events and finished a strong second — hey, losing to Decorah in any team race is unfortunately almost a fact of life — at the Don Steffens Relays in...
Maddi Moorman and Kallie Olson made up half of a 4x800 team that posted a time of six seconds faster than any 4x800 in 2016.
This may sound weird, but it’s true: New Hampton’s girls track team was much more impressive finishing second by 75 points Friday than it was winning by 80 last Tuesday.  Sure, Decorah dominated the team race at its own invitational Friday as the Vikings piled up 176 points to the runner-up...
New Hampton’s Kaelyn Ambrose runs the second leg of the 4x200 relay at the NEIC Indoor that was held at Luther College on Tuesday.
Although wins were tough to come by for the New Hampton girls track team Tuesday at the Northeast Iowa Conference Indoor, coach Jeanette Laures found plenty of positives.  “Overall, I thought the meet went pretty well,” Laures said. “This is an especially tough conference this year.  I look for...
