New Hampton baseball

New Hampton’s Wyatt Stochl continues to be among the leaders in hitting for the Chickasaws as his .426 batting average trails only Noah Fye.
The seniors on the New Hampton baseball team have literally played hundreds of games since they first became teammates on a travel team back when they were elementary school students. But they have never had more fun playing the game than they did on Friday night, when they moved into the Northeast...
New Hampton’s Noah Fye goes with the pitch and drives a triple to right field in the Chickasaws’ 9-4 win over Charles City on Monday night.
As New Hampton coach Cory McDonald talked about Monday’s 9-4 win over Charles City on Monday night, he used the words “Chickasaw baseball” on numerous occasions. And just what it is that? “It’s a lot of things, it’s the things they’ve heard over and over,” McDonald said after his team improved to...
Aden Zwanziger delivers a pitch during the first game of New Hampton’s doubleheader with Oelwein on Friday.
Aden Zwanziger, Noah Fye and Josh Fenske have been around the proverbial block a time or two so no one had to tell them that Friday’s doubleheader at Oelwein was, to put it simply, huge. Win two and the Chickasaws would stay in the thick of the Northeast Iowa Conference race; split or, even worse,...
After hitting a two-run home run, New Hampton’s Noah Fye is welcomed home by teammate Aden Zwanziger during the second inning of Tuesday’s game with Waverly-Shell Rock.
Save for the scoreboard, Tuesday night’s New Hampton/Waverly-Shell Rock baseball game was pretty much a dead heat. Both teams had seven hits, both teams struck out seven times and both teams had two extra-base hits, so despite the fact that his team lost 9-5, New Hampton coach Cory McDonald liked a...
New Hampton’s Preston Pickar is safe at third base after his slide knocked the ball out of the glove of Crestwood’s  Reid Riley’s glove during the first game of a Northeast Iowa Conference doubleheader Friday in Cresco.
It might have been its ugliest win of the winning streak, but Cory McDonald believes Saturday’s 10-3 win over North Fayette Valley showed something about his team. “We had that big inning in the fifth, and you know what? All three of our seniors — Aden [Zwanziger], Noah [Fye] and Joshua [Fenske]...
Noah Hopp fields a pickoff throw at first during Tuesday’s substate game against Denver.
    It wasn’t supposed to end in Cedar Falls; instead, the script called for this brilliant season to finish on a Saturday afternoon in Principal Park.    This isn’t Hollywood, however; it’s baseball.    And on Tuesday night, the best baseball season in New Hampton school history came to a crushing...
Junior outfielder Josh Fenske makes a valiant effort at a foul ball in the third inning during New Hampton’s 8-0 win over Hampton-Dumont.
   Carter Stochl — or for that matter, any of his New Hampton baseball teammates — doesn’t need a dictionary to define the word sacrifice.   Instead, they personify the meaning of sacrifice — “the surrender or destruction of something prized or desirable for the sake of something considered as...
Mason Cleveland, shown earlier this season, tossed a two-hitter in a record-setting win over Clear Lake for the New Hampton baseball team Saturday.
   Cory McDonald sat on top of the riding mower and took a break from dragging the infield Saturday morning.   He was asked about the celebration — or more to the point, the lack of one — after his New Hampton baseball team set a school record with their 30th win of the season Friday night with an...
New Hampton centerfielder Zach Wemark tracks down a line drive as leftfielder Mason Cleveland dives for the ball just in case his outfield mate can’t come up with the catch in the second game of a doubleheader with Waverly-Shell Rock on Tuesday night.
  Ryan Gorman, Keegan Tenge and the rest of their New Hampton baseball team watched Waverly-Shell Rock erupt from its dugout and celebrate Tuesday night as if the Go-Hawks had won the World Series.  And they didn’t like it one bit.  “It was kind of weird to see that,” Gorman said, “and it was like...
Ryan Gorman heads to the plate while Cadets’ catcher Jon Henry leaps to catch the ball. Gorman just barely scored New Hampton’s first run in what turned out to be a 5-3 Chickasaw win.
Maybe a picture is worth a 1,000 words; after all, the snapshot that could have been taken after New Hampton beat Crestwood 5-3 Friday night spoke volumes.Yes, the Chickasaws won their 13th straight game. Yes, New Hampton improved to 22-1. And yes, the Chickasaws remained perfect — 12-0 — in the...
