Anyone looking at volleyball statistics will notice New Hampton’s name. The Chickasaws are third in Class 3A with 467 kills and they’re second with 138 aces, or 3.14 per set. Their 411 assists ranks third in the class, so does 46 solo blocks. But, echoing what her coach Jess Geerts said last week,...
Nashua-Plainfield senior Brianna Bienemann bumps the ball during a match played earlier this season.
Nashua-Plainfield’s volleyball team knew the challenge presented by its first Saturday tournament was going to be, in a word, brutal.

Nashua-Plainfield’s John Krull returns a punt in a game played against Belmond-Klemme a couple of weeks ago.
Maybe first-year head football coaches are jinxed at Nashua-Plainfield; after all, in 2015, Chase Sudol went through an injury-plagued debut season, and the same thing is happening to Nick Lamphier this year. “It’s been a struggle, and I guess the best thing you can say is our young guys are...
Turkey Valley’s Jalyssa Blazek shows the effects of Luther’s muddy course at Saturday’s meet.
New Hampton seniors Alexis and Adrian Rings didn’t mind that the cross country meet, for a short distance, turned into a mud run Saturday at Luther College. Even thought the area went a whopping two days without precipitation, a stream crossing the course was still running, causing slippery...

Shown in a Trojan home game, Eli Reicks gained 117 yards against Midland Wyoming Friday.
Turkey Valley made sure Midland Wyoming’s size advantage didn’t come into play — at least at the start — and built a 38-14 halftime lead on its way to a 46-36 victory over its opponent Friday. The Eagles’ size gave Turkey Valley coach Mark Scott cause for a concern as the Eagles, who were ranked in...
New Hampton senior Max Babcock fights for extra yards after making a reception during the first quarter of Friday’s game against Waukon.
There was a brief stretch — spanning the last minute of the first half and the first couple of the second — when New Hampton appeared like it was going to climb back into Friday night’s game against Waukon. Trailing 18-0 late in the second quarter, the Chickasaws came up with a big defensive stop...

Turkey Valley lost the first two sets against Kee High in an Upper Iowa Conference volleyball match Thursday. They trailed 9-6 in the third set. Darned if they didn’t come back and win the thing.

A kill by New Hampton’s Maddi Moorman went down hard in set three against Charles City Tuesday night to give the NH girls a 21-11 lead. A short time later Moorman scored again, this time it was more of a push, but it still gave the Chickasaws another point. “Hitting is not the only option,” said...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Abbi Hauser receives a serve during a match played earlier this season.
Amber McCall doesn’t like to lose so her Nashua-Plainfield’s volleyball team’s 0-4 record gnaws at the Huskies’ coach. But — and this is a big but — McCall saw plenty of progress last week as the Huskies got their first set wins of the season in a 3-2 loss to Northwood-Kensett and a 3-1 loss to...
