Rachel Rinken rounds third, while in the background the ball is yet to reach Crestwood's cutoff girl, shortstop Shannon Pisney.
New Hampton's bats got going in the seventh inning of its regional semifinal game Friday at Cresco, but the Cadets struck down what would by the tying run, winning the game 2-1. On a hit by Kallie Olson, New Hampton coach Jack Seelhammer sent one of the teams fastest runners — Rachel Rinken —...
Kerigan Tenge rounds second with a triple in the second inning of a win over Osage Tuesday.
Four runs scored by New Hampton in the second inning of the regional first round against Osage Tuesday would be more than enough to move the Chickasaw softball team on.

This wasn’t the way New Hampton wanted to go into the Class 3A regional softball tournament.

After Savannah Anderson and four of her classmates were honored on Senior Night Wednesday, Anderson’s emotions were raw.  She had just pitched a 3-0 loss to the 4A, third-ranked Comets, but it wasn’t the loss the tears were about. “I’m gonna miss it. A lot.”  Wednesday was the final regular season...

Shown slapping a hit earlier in the season, Kallie Olson had a home run in a loss to Crestwood Monday.
What started out to be a hectic week has turned into one in which the Chickasaw girls may only play on Monday and Saturday. While the team was gathering to travel to Waverly for a doubleheader Wednesday, it was raining in Waverly and the games were first pushed back an hour, then postponed. They...

New Hampton’s girls picked up relatively easy Northeast Iowa Conference wins last Wednesday and Thursday, but this Wednesday and Thursday will be a different story.
