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...

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.
