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...
