New Hampton track

Area schools were involved in the final day of the state track meet Saturday at Drake Stadium in Des Moines.
Saturday morning there were three area boys' teams in the state track meet that had entries in the sprint medley relay. In Class 1A Turkey Valley was eighth in the event with Will Einwalter, Cody Hackman, Wyatt Blazek and Cale Reicks finishing in 1:37.59, just a hair better than their previous...
Celena Quirk and her New Hampton track teammates competed at the NEIC meet Thursday.
Members of the New Hampton and Turkey Valley track teams — save for four Chickasaw girls who competed at the Drake Relays — have experienced their sport’s version of a “timeout” lately.  Before Thursday night’s Northeast Iowa Conference track meet in Waverly, the Chickasaws hadn’t competed on the...
New Hampton’s 4x100 relay team — (from left) Rachel Rinken, Darian Wegner, Bailey Knowlton and Sadie Tenge  — pose for a photo after competing in the Drake Relays.
It’s supposed to be one of the highlights of the track season, but New Hampton’s appearance in the 2017 Drake Relays was memorable for all the wrong reasons.  “It was miserable,” coach Jeanette Laures said. “In all the years we’ve gone to Drake, I don’t think we had a more cold, rainy day than we...
New Hampton sophomore Noah Fenske gets off a career-best throw in the shot put during Tuesday night’s Osage Invitational.
Ask Noah Fenske if he wants to beat his teammate Dillon Roberson in the shot put, and the answer is an emphatic yes.  Ask Roberson if he wants to beat Fenske, and the answer is the same.  But the two sophomores — both of whom came up with career-best throws at Tuesday’s Osage Invitational — are...
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...
With a jump of 4’8”, Savannah Anderson scored sixth-place points as the Chickasaw girls track team was competing among mostly 4A schools at Waterloo Thursday.
Depending on one’s perspective, Thursday’s Wahawk Invitational was a half-full or half-empty kind of day for the New Hampton girls track team.  The Chickasaws got a chance to run against a host of Class 4A schools they don’t normally encounter, but the weather conditions — cold and windy — made...
Keagan John passes Waukon’s Hunter Jensen in the Chickasaws’ winning sprint medley relay run.
New Hampton coach Scott Frerichs has found plenty of success when he puts Braydon Fisher, Keagan John, Shane Burke and Josh Fenske in relays this year.  And Friday night was certainly not an exception when the quartet notched two more victories as they claimed the sprint medley and 4x100 titles at...
New Hampton senior Oliver Perez beat his previous career-best time in the 3,200 by almost 10 seconds Tuesday in Charles City.
New Hampton may not have a lot of depth when it comes to boys track, but the Chickasaws certainly have some versatile athletes.  Junior Alex Schumacher was the latest Chickasaw to show off his versatility as he ran a solid leg on the 4x800 relay, led off New Hampton’s winning distance medley relay...
A career-best throw in the discus by Serina Hovden placed the Chickasaw senior in third place at the New Hampton Invitational Monday.
    One thing Chickasaw girls track coach Jeanette Laures likes about this year’s group of seniors is how diversified they are.     Between Hunter Gerber, Kayla Gilbert, Serina Hovden, Darian Wegner and Mariah Wickham, there’s sprinters, distance runners, throwers and jumpers.     “It’s nice to...
New Hampton’s Jake Usher holds a slight lead over Nashua-Plainfield’s Dayton Hansen on the backstretch during the distance medley relay at the New Hampton Coed Thursday.
New Hampton’s Jake Usher and Turkey Valley’s Wyatt Blazek are obviously two different runners.  One, Usher, is a middle-distance and long distance runner; the other is a sprinter.  But both seniors had banner nights for their respective teams on Thursday night at the New Hampton Coed and both have...
