This was not supposed to be the way their season year was supposed to go. OK, that may be the biggest “duh” statement written on the pages of the Tribune, but we’re not talking about missing the last two months of school, not having prom, going through a virtual commencement and having a live...
Start with the good news: The New Hampton softball team showed off a little power as it went 2-1 last week. The bad news? The Chickasaws still have a ways to go to catch the elite teams of the Northeast Iowa Conference after falling to Crestwood 10-2 on Friday night. The loss came after the...
Dan Stepan couldn’t help but chuckle when asked about the milestone win his Turkey Valley baseball team gave him last Tuesday. So coach, win No. 300, great players or old age? “Probably a little of both,” he said. “It does mean I’ve been doing this for a long time, but I think it also says...

Kiersten Tenge figured she and her teammates would be nervous when New Hampton opened the abbreviated 2020 softball season last week. She figured right, but after getting rid of the nerves in the season opener — a tough 1-0 loss to Waverly-Shell Rock — the Chickasaws bounced back with an impressive...

They pitched some softball, they hit some baseballs and, heck, some kids even dressed up and went to prom. Welcome back, normalcy, or at least, hello, “new normal.” “I think it was great for the kids to get that sense of normalcy,” New Hampton Activities Director Brad Schmitt said, “and it’s...
New Hampton’s Conner Gorman and Conner Rochford celebrate the Chickasaws’ extra-inning victory over Charles City.
With this being my last week at the New Hampton Tribune, I thought it would be a cool idea to list my top five favorite sporting events that I covered over the past 14 months. Note that these are my opinions, and I am biased because I like some sports more than others.  With that being said, I am...
Carson Babcock was going to skip prom this spring for a chance to go to Fargo. For those who know nothing about wrestling, let’s face it: That’s an odd statement. Who skips prom to try to go to North Dakota’s largest city? For mat fans, Fargo though is the summer goal for wrestlers from around the...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley 182-pounder, Jacob Reicks, looks over at his coaches as he finishes off a pin in the Class 2A district tournament that was held in New Hampton this past February.
New Hampton/Turkey Valley wrestling coach Matt Paulus just doesn’t get it. All the coaches he knows want the Iowa High School Athletic Association to “fix” the state wrestling tournament schedule yet the IHSAA earlier this spring announced, at least for the next five years, the status quo will...
