New Hampton’s Tyler Rentschler knifes his way through two Mason City defenders to score in the second half of Thursday night’s season opener against the Mohawks.

Taking on the big boys

Chickasaws hold off Mason City, fall to Cedar Rapids Washington

Keagan John stood outside the locker room Thursday night and let out a sigh of relief.

“That was my guy that I didn’t box out,” the New Hampton senior said, “but thankfully, Jake [Zwanziger] or whoever was there to block the shot. … Did we foul them? Um, well, they didn’t call it right? So we must not have.”

Still, without John, there would have been no wild finish to the Chickasaws’ season-opening 63-62 win over Class 4A Mason City, for the senior came up huge — scoring a career-high 26 points and grabbing a team-high eight rebounds.
