Nashua-Plainfield’s Evan Kalainoff works for an escape during a tournament earlier this season.
If there is a rule when it comes to high school wrestling, it is this: Time speeds up after Christmas. “Three weeks from this Saturday, we’re wrestling at sectionals,” Nashua-Plainfield coach Al Frost said earlier this week. “You get to Christmas and all of a sudden, it’s go time.” The good news...
Austin Bienemann opened the New Year in a big way as he posted double-doubles in both the Huskies’ game last week.
The win was nice, but the loss Nashua-Plainfield suffered last week may have shown just how far the Huskies have come this season. A night after beating Central Springs 70-61, the Huskies saw their four-game winning streak come to an end but not until after they gave Top of Iowa Conference East...
Turkey Valley sophomore Jaycie Byrne led the Lady Trojans with 13 points Friday as they were starting the year with a 57-33 win over Clayton Ridge.
The holiday layoff didn’t appear to slow down Turkey Valley’s girls much as they came back from the break with their first win of 2019, over conference rival Clayton Ridge Friday. There may have been just a little rust, as it took a couple minutes for the Lady Trojans to get on the board, but...
Shown playing defense, Kalvin Langreck (1) and Garrett Kurtenbach came off the bench to spark Turkey Valley’s offense in a win over Jesup.
There could not have been a much bigger turnaround between the first and second quarters of Turkey Valley’s 46-23 win over Clayton Ridge Friday. After a sluggish first quarter ended with a 4-3 Turkey Valley lead, the Trojans outscored the Eagles 18-0 in the second period. The way his team played in...
With a couple fouls early in the game, Maddi Moorman didn’t get her first points until the third quarter, but then she was on a mission, going 5-for-5 from the field for 10 points in the Chickasaw win over Oelwein.
As a group of Alexa Wemark’s family members filed out of the school lobby after New Hampton’s win over Oelwein Friday, a comment was made about her followers. “Yeah, I made a couple quick ones in the first quarter.” No, Alexa, not a lot of fouls, a lot of followers. But as long as you brought it up...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Max Babcock turns Waverly-Shell Rock’s Cayden Lengreck on his way to a first period pin Thursday night that gave the Chickasaw senior his 100th career victory.
Max Babcock wasn’t a bad wrestler at all last year, after all, he did make the state tournament. But the New Hampton/Turkey Valley senior is a different wrestler this year, and during a tough three-day stretch for the Chickasaws, it was Babcock who provided one of the best silver linings as he...
New Hampton freshman Drake Wemark gets loose under the basket and scores on an inside shot during the fourth quarter of Friday’s game at Oelwein.
The program says Drake Wemark is a freshman; his play on the court begs to differ. And the latest proof of his emergence came Friday night as he scored 21 points, including 13 in the fourth quarter, to help lead the Chickasaws to a 63-58 victory over Oelwein. “It has been a big jump,” Wemark said...
New Hampton assistant basketball coach Parker Bolt watches the team’s scrimmage against Don Bosco with players Connor Croell and Carter Ferrie.
High school students have very impressionable minds and are influenced very easily by the media, social networks, and most of all, people.  It’s why having positive  influences and good role models is essential for the success and development of any high school student. If there happens to be a...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley student assistant coach Ryan Anderson (left) and head coach Nick Hemann keep a close eye on a match during last month’s Battle of Waterloo.
Ryan Anderson has done a little bit of everything when it comes to extra-curricular activities at New Hampton High School. The senior has been active in four sports and has been a member of numerous clubs and organizations, and now, he can add “coach” to the list of activities. One of the four...
Nashua-Plainfield wrestling coach Al Frost poses with his team’s managers — (from left) Haley Rinken, Bailey Weiss, Kylie Dietz Keagan Betsinger and Carlee Smith — during a short break at the Nashua-Plainfield Invitational last month.
Al Frost chuckled at the question, what exactly do the Nashua-Plainfield wrestling team’s managers do? “Maybe a better question is what don’t they do? Seriously, they do so much behind the scenes it’s not even funny,” the veteran coach said. “They deserve a little credit. No, they deserve a ton of...
