Mercy Medical Center-New Hampton athletic trainer Maggie Peterson looks over New Hampton wrestler Noah Glaser after a blood timeout was taken in a wrestling meet against Southeast Polk last winter.
   Maggie Peterson couldn’t help but laugh when she was asked about what her job looked like 100 years ago when Mercy Medical Center-New Hampton opened.   “That’s easy,” she said, “because it didn’t exist.

Among the former New Hampton players expected to compete in the Chickasaw Hoops Club Alumni Tournament is Kyle Smith, who now plays college basketball at Central in Pella.
    It wasn’t that the Chickasaw Hoops Club didn’t find its annual golf outing to be a fun, enjoyable or even a profitable fundraiser.    But something was missing.    “We honestly didn’t get a lot of former basketball players back,” said Hoops Club member Bruce Zwanziger. “We’d get a good turnout...
