Nashua-Plainfield basketball

Nashua-Plainfield’s John Krull leads a fast break during a recent Top of Iowa Conference game.
He may have liked to have seen a little bit better shooting percentage, but make no mistake about it, Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball coach Sam Brown loved watching his team march to the free-throw line Saturday. That ability to get to the line — 45 times, no less — was huge as the Huskies...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Isaac Chambers drives to the basket during a game played earlier this month.
Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball coach Sam Brown and his players knew the Huskies hadn’t played one of their best games Friday night; in fact, they knew they hadn’t even come close in a 56-35 loss to Osage. “Almost every time we’ve seen a team a second time this year, we’ve played much better,”...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Libby Fisher and Jennah Carpenter (34) try to bottle up a Northwood-Kensett player during a game played earlier this month in Nashua.
It wasn’t the “W” that the Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball team so desperately craves, but Saturday’s game against North Butler certainly was a step in the right direction. A day after falling to Class 3A second-ranked Osage 61-21, the Huskies rebounded with what their coach called “our most...
Brenna Hackman battled for a rebound during a game played against Tripoli earlier this season.
Josh Smith knows the record — or even the recent scores — might not say it, but the Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball coach sees progress in his team, despite an eight-game losing streak that has dropped the Huskies to 1-10 overall and 1-7 in Top of Iowa Conference East Division play. “I think we...
Austin Bienemann opened the New Year in a big way as he posted double-doubles in both the Huskies’ game last week.
The win was nice, but the loss Nashua-Plainfield suffered last week may have shown just how far the Huskies have come this season. A night after beating Central Springs 70-61, the Huskies saw their four-game winning streak come to an end but not until after they gave Top of Iowa Conference East...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Luke Cerwinske eyes the basket as he drives by an AGWSR defender during last week’s Class 1A district game.
The Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball team wrapped up its season a little sooner than they wanted to last Thursday, falling 58-50 to Ackley-Geneva-Wellsburg-Steamboat Rock (AGWSR) in Class 1A, District 4 action at Rockford. In a back-and-forth defensive struggle that featured 10 lead changes, the...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Sydney Hansen looks for her shot during the first half of last Tuesday’s Top of Iowa Conference game against Mason City Newman.
There are times, Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball coach Josh Smith concedes, that he wouldn’t mind playing in anything other than the Top of Iowa Conference East Division. It is, in a word, loaded, and the result last week was two more losses for the Huskies. “On one hand having a bunch of wins...
Austin Lines, Nashua-Plainfield’s lone senior at the end of the season, drives to the basket.
Don’t get Justin Eiffler wrong, the Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball coach didn’t want his team’s season to end last Thursday night.  Yet, the Husky coach could not have been more proud of the way his team played in a 57-40 loss to seventh-ranked Don Bosco in a Class 1A district quarterfinal game...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Sierra Fisher (left) and Britney Holthaus battle for a loose ball during the Huskies’ regional game against Waterloo Columbus on Saturday night.
Forget the record, Nashua-Plainfield coach Josh Smith knows Sierra Fisher, Abby Lumley and the rest of his players are all winners.  Yes, the Huskies’ season ended Saturday night with a 3-20 record after a 70-31 loss to Waterloo Columbus in a Class 2A regional opener in which Nashua-Plainfield...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Isaac Chambers gets loose underneath the hoop for an easy basket in Monday night’s game against Clarksville.
The play called for Isaac Chambers to use a screen from teammate Dawson Schmitt and get a short jumper.  Instead, the Nashua-Plainfield sophomore improvised just a bit.  “I saw I had a pretty clear path to the basket and the way my jumper had been falling — or not falling — I went with it,”...
