Matt Paulus, trust us, is never going to be comfortable with a loss, much less a 51-17 defeat at the hands of Waverly-Shell Rock. Still, the New Hampton/Turkey Valley coach found some silver linings in Thursday’s Northeast Iowa Conference loss to the Go-Hawks, who are ranked first and second...
Matt Paulus, trust us, is never going to be comfortable with a loss, much less a 51-17 defeat at the hands of Waverly-Shell Rock. Still, the New Hampton/Turkey Valley coach found some silver linings in Thursday’s Northeast Iowa Conference loss to the Go-Hawks, who are ranked first and second...
A good start - a not so great finish. The New Hampton Chickasaw girls basketball team started out well in games played against Charles City and Waukon this week. The difference in those two league tilts was the completion of those contests. One outcome resulted in a win, the other a loss. Let’s...
Basketball and the fight against cancer might seem like an unlikely ally to some. But for the Turkey Valley Trojan hoops program it almost seems like second nature to help someone defeat an enemy that can be much more challenging than any opponent on the court. So when the Trojans hit the hardwood...
Ryan Rausch liked the offensive output from his top players last Tuesday, despite a 73-52 loss to Charles City. “Yeah, if Conner [Rochford] gets 16 points and Drake [Wemark] gets 14 points I like to think we can win some basketball games,” said the New Hampton boys coach. But as he pointed at the...
Jacqlyn Schmitt goes after a loose ball for Turkey Valley
It might be pretty intimidating for Jacqlyn Schmitt, a sophomore playing for the Turkey Valley girls.

Cael Leistikow shoots for the Chickasaws
Superman he is not.  But New Hampton junior forward Drake Wemark brings a lot to the table where the New Hampton boys basketball team is concerned.  He's back!!! And his return couldn't have come at a better time for the Chickasaws and head coach Ryan Rausch — whose team broke a four-game losing...
Trojan freshman Oliver Schmitt drives in Turkey Valley's win over Riceville.

With only four guys on the bench Sullivan has no choice but to give all the players copious amounts of game...
Carlee Rochford drives the baseline in a recent game.
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. That seemed to be the New Hampton girls basketball team’s mantra on Tuesday on the road versus Waterloo Columbus (4-4).  That perseverance paid off for the Chickasaws and head coach Chad Pemble after a 44-42 win over the Sailors sent New Hampton into...
Beakers, test tubes, molecules and microscopes. Chad Pemble understands all about the chemistry of his class at New Hampton High School. The longtime science teacher at NHHS also knows what that means out on the basketball court. One word – two different definitions. Some times it takes time to...
