New Hampton/Turkey Valley 160-pounder Clayton Taylor takes down Waukon’s Nathan Johnson during a night in which the Chickasaws won two duals by a combined score of 141-9 over Waukon and Oelwein.
There have been times early this season that New Hampton/Turkey Valley wrestling coach Nick Hemann has been a bit conflicted. Take the Chickasaws’ recent performances on the mat, for example. On the up side, New Hampton/Turkey Valley destroyed a couple of Northeast Iowa Conference opponents —...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Evan Rosonke was the lone Chickasaw to make the finals at Independence’s two-day tournament.
Don’t let the 14th-place finish in the team standings fool you; New Hampton/Turkey Valley coach Nick Hemann got what he wanted out of Independence’s Cliff Keen Invitational this weekend. “It went good, it went really good,” Hemann said after the two-day, 33-team tournament. “It’s one of the best —...
New Hampton senior Michael Blockhus, flanked by coaches Nick Hemann (left) and Matt Paulus, was named the Class 2A Wrestler of the Year.
It may have been the easiest balloting ever when it came to Iowa’s wrestlers of the year; after all, if there ever was a year that qualified as a no-brainer, it was 2017-18. Both Class 1A and 3A had four-time champions in Underwood’s Alex Thomsen and Fort Dodge’s Brody Teske while Class 2A had...
Top-ranked New Hampton picked up another state qualifying banner Tuesday.
After a quick 54-27 win over Charles City — which only took 40 minutes — New Hampton’s wrestlers earned yet another banner for the Chickasaw gymnasium as they won their regional with a 57-17 victory over Clear Lake to qualify for the state dual meet, which takes place next Wednesday. In the final...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Max Babcock scores back points in his 126-pound final against South Hardin-BCLUW’s Cole Willett at Saturday’s Class 2A sectional tournament.
For 364 days, New Hampton/Turkey Valley senior Areon Day lived with the disappointment of the 2017 Class 2A sectional tournament. And he reminded himself of that bitterly frustrating day this past week by hanging his third-place sectional medal on his locker. “I never ever ever wanted to feel like...
Noah Fye
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Noah Fye may not like the injury or the brace it means he has to wear, but the New Hampton senior is more than ready to return to the mat. “I’m not saying I don’t feel it or anything, but I just want to get out there and wrestle,” said Fye, who hasn’t wrestled since he...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Jon Dreckman finishes off a pin of Crestwood’s Nathan Bigalk in the 106-pound finals at the Northeast Iowa Conference tournament on Saturday.
Evan Rosonke didn’t know which match sealed New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Northeast Iowa Conference championship Saturday. As it turns out, it was his. When the sophomore pinned Crestwood’s Judd Grover in the championship round, it ended a see-saw battle between three teams for first place, giving...
With his next win, Evan Rosonke, shown here completing a takedown earlier this month during a quadrangular, will become the ninth New Hampton/Turkey Valley wrestler with 30 or more wins this season.
Given the choice, New Hampton/Turkey Valley obviously would take winning a state wrestling championship over claiming the Northeast Iowa Conference tournament title. But that doesn’t mean this Saturday’s tournament in Waverly isn’t important to the Chickasaws. “It’s a big deal for me and it’s a big...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley heavyweight Tom Clark puts the finishing touches on a pin of Staley’s Preston Thomas during Thursday night’s Doc Carr Duals.
As far as New Hampton/Turkey Valley coach Nick Hemann was concerned Thursday night, it was mission accomplished. It wasn’t because New Hampton/Turkey Valley won three duals to claim the title at what was the Doc Carr Duals this year. And it wasn’t even because the Chickasaws laid claim to at least...
Logan Hopp will compete at this weekend’s NCAA Division II national tournament.
They’ve been down this road before, but make no mistake about it, there’s a sense of urgency for Jordan Roths and Logan Hopp.  The two 2012 New Hampton High School graduates are embarking on their last great journey this weekend as the two Upper Iowa University student-athletes join two of their...
