New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Areon Day, shown here in last week’s season opener, finished third at the prestigious Cliff Keen Invitational that was held in Independence this past weekend.
New Hampton/Turkey Valley got exactly what it wanted — plenty of tough matches  — this past weekend in Independence.  And when it was over, NH/TV coach Nick Hemann was relatively happy as his Chickasaws finished fourth in the Cliff Keen Invitational team standings at the 31-team tournament that...
The win wasn’t there, but the hustle was. Maddi Moorman, left, and Lauren Frerichs sprint after a loose ball during the New Hampton season opener Tuesday.
At times it looked a bit wild and disjointed on both sides, but that’s what season openers are for. Along with first-game jitters, the New Hampton girls are learning a new system, and it might take a little time. “This was a good first-game test,” said coach Chad Pemble after a 68-62 loss to MFL. “...
New Hampton senior Josh Fenske sacks Garner-Hayfield-Ventura quarterback Ryan Myers during the Chickasaws’ 28-10 victory last month.
New Hampton football coach Scott Frerichs put it simply when he was asked about the four Chickasaws — seniors Josh Fenske, Braydon Fisher and Tyler Rentschler and junior Noah Fenske — who landed on the Iowa Newspaper Association’s Class 2A all-state teams. “All of these players really like the game...
During the Lions Junior Wrestling Tournament held in 2012, New Hampton's Caleb Utley looks to score points against his opponent.
After the very first Lions Club Wrestling Tournament was held, an article in the New Hampton Tribune stated that “the event was so well-received, plans call for its perpetuation.” That article was published April 6, 1978, and the tournament is still going strong. Now in its 40th year, much has...
Former New Hampton football star Connor Frerichs gets rid of a blocker during a game played earlier this season against Washington University in Waverly.
For some college football programs, a 6-4 record is acceptable. Wartburg, though, is not just “some” program; instead, it has been one of the consistent powers of the Iowa Conference. So when the Knights finished 2016 with that 6-4 mark, their goal was simple — return to the top of the Iowa...
Ashton Kout led the Trojans in serving during the season and her 55 aces put her fourth in the UIC.
At the end of Turkey Valley’s volleyball season, two Lady Trojans were named to the Upper Iowa Conference honorable mention team. Ashton Kout and Kassidy Reicks, both seniors, led Turkey Valley in many categories, including assists. Between the pair, they finished with 270 of the team’s 305 assists...
Cale Reicks (22) and Will Einwalter (25) were both named to the District 2 first team after the season ended.
Turkey Valley may not have had the quantity of players on the District 2, 8-man All-District lists as they have in recent year, but the players that were named certainly had the quality part covered. Three of the four seniors on the team were awarded postseason honors, but there were also a pair of...
New Hampton senior Josh Fenske was named the district’s defensive most valuable player for the second year in a row.
It’s a simple truth: Win a lot of football games and you’re going to get a lot of postseason honors. Exhibit A would be New Hampton as the Chickasaws had 21 players honored by Class 2A, District 2 coaches as nine made the first-team, four were selected as honorable mention picks and 18 earned all-...
New Hampton’s Savannah Anderson led the Chickasaws in kills during a 2017 season in which she and her teammates advanced to the Class 3A regional final match.
Picking New Hampton all-conference players might have been especially hard this year with the depth and talent the Chickasaws displayed. But since coaches can’t vote for their own players, it was out of coach Jess Geerts’ hands entirely. New Hampton earned one all-conference first team spot as...
New Hampton football players accept their state football playoff trophy from the school's activities director, Brad Schmitt, after Waukon beat the Chickasaws 34-13 Friday night.
A season few outside the New Hampton locker room would have believed back in August came to an end Friday night as Waukon rolled to a 34-13 win over the Chickasaws in a Class 2A state playoff quarterfinal game. When it was over, New Hampton coach Scott Frerichs gathered his players for one final...
