New Hampton’s Rachel Rinken gives it everything she has as she leaps into the long jump pit at the Class 2A state track meet last Thursday.
Rachel Rinken knew she had to “hit” that first jump at the Class 2A state track meet last Thursday. A little less than a month ago, the New Hampton junior had been involved in a farm accident, and she still isn’t anywhere near 100 percent. “I knew the first one was huge,” Rinken said, “just because...
New Hampton senior Noah Fenske watches his 60-foot throw at the Class 2A state track and field meet last Thursday.
This wasn’t the way it was supposed to end, but New Hampton senior Noah Fenske was one discus throw away Friday from seeing his brilliant track career end in utter disappointment. A day after becoming the first Chickasaw to ever win a state title in a field event with a dominating performance in...
The annual selfie — coach Eric Olson with the state qualifying Chickasaw girls, along with assistant coach Paul Ewert.
On a windy Monday, New Hampton's girls finished 37 strokes lower than any other team at Region 3 of the Class 2A regional finals. The win  advances the girls to the state tournament, which will start next Tuesday, May 28 in Ames.  The 339 scored by the Chickasaw girls was, in fact, the lowest score...
Savannah Schmitt putts at the Silver Springs course earlier this season.
Turkey Valley girls golf coach John Reicks knows that there are folks out there who don’t appreciate just how tough the game of golf can be. The way his Trojans handled the Upper Iowa Conference girls golf tournament last Tuesday made him appreciate his girls even more. “Our girls did a nice job of...
New Hampton’s Nick TeKippe fires a shot during a meet held earlier this month at the Fredericksburg Sportsman’s Club in Boyd.
For the first time all spring, the New Hampton trapshooting team lost a meet to someone other than Waverly-Shell Rock.  Osage 1 came away victorious on Saturday at Fredericksburg Sportsman’s Club, defeating runner-up New Hampton Red 240-239. “It’s getting to the time of the year when scores go up...
Leading the Chickasaw girls as the conference champion, Allison Nuss fired a 74 at Decorah last week.
To be honest, Eric Olson is never really all that surprised when Allison Nuss breaks a school record, yet he’ll be the first to admit he didn’t see Friday’s round of 70 at the Forest City Invitational coming. “That’s a tough course, especially their back nine,” Olson said after Nuss broke her own...
Turkey Valley’s Keegan Balk watches his drive sail down the fairway.
It was a sectional field Turkey Valley coach John Reicks thought his team could have qualified in, had they been able to play with their top two golfers. But when Simon Schmitt’s old basketball knee injury caused him to fail a physical therapy strength test, the top Trojan golfer was out. Then when...
New Hampton’s Connor Hackman and his playing partners watch Hackman’s tee shot on the fifth hole.
It was not exactly the start — bogey, double bogey — Ryan Anderson envisioned Friday at the Class 2A sectional boys golf meet. “It wasn’t like I could go back and change those holes,” the New Hampton senior said, “so I was just thinking I’d better get my crap figured out and hit a good tee shot on...
Turkey Valley’s Cambree Kruse is one of five Trojan girls heading to the state meet later this week.
A trio of events punched their ticket to the state track meet for the Turkey Valley girls’ track team on Friday evening at Edgewood-Colesburg High School.  The one common aspect among each of them is that they all involve freshman standout Jalyssa Blazek. Individually, Blazek placed second in the...
Making it five consecutive Northeast Iowa Conference girls golf championships for the Chickasaws are (from left) assistant coach Paul Ewert, Sanja Djukic, Emma Ewert, Allison Nuss, Morgan Nuss, Lola Lemke, Regan Gebel and head coach Eric Olson.
Decorah golf coach Scott Pierce emphasized the word “again” as he announced the 2019 Northeast Iowa Conference girls golf champions last Monday. And while Decorah and the rest of the NEIC schools may be tired of the iron-clad grip New Hampton has on that title — they’ve tied the conference record...
