Chickasaw boys survive, claim overtime thriller

No one needed to tell the members of the New Hampton boys basketball team about Oelwein’s “streak.”
They knew.

Utter dominance

For 364 days, New Hampton/Turkey Valley senior Areon Day lived with the disappointment of the 2017 Class 2A sectional tournament.

Chickasaws will be at full strength as postseason begins

New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Noah Fye may not like the injury or the brace it means he has to wear, but the New Hampton senior is more than ready to return to the mat.

Trojans suffer first UIC loss

After Monday’s win over Tripoli, coach Chris Sullivan said his Trojan boys would be playing the next night, in Postville, a team “we seem to always have battles with right down to the final buzzer.” 

Trojan girls to play final UIC game tonite

Should Turkey Valley get past Riceville in the first round of regional action, they could again meet Tripoli, a team they defeated Monday night by a close 58-51 score.

Finding themselves

It was a night when, for once, everything seemed to click for the New Hampton boys basketball team.
The Chickasaws scored early and often, posted a season high in points and rolled to an 89-55 win over MFL-Mar-Mac Monday.

It’s the real deal now

When he’s old and gray, Tristen Brase will fondly remember what he accomplished in the winter of 2017-18, but for now, his focus is what lies ahead.

At long last, champions!

Evan Rosonke didn’t know which match sealed New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Northeast Iowa Conference championship Saturday.
As it turns out, it was his.

It’s not a good sign when only three girls get on the scoreboard, but that’s how many scored in a Turkey Valley loss to Central Tuesday.

He’s still waiting.

Overtime thriller!

Everyone has different ways of relaxing.

NEIC is a ‘big deal’ for Chickasaws

Given the choice, New Hampton/Turkey Valley obviously would take winning a state wrestling championship over claiming the Northeast Iowa Conference tournament title.

N-P girls close the gap against top-notch teams

There are times, Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball coach Josh Smith concedes, that he wouldn’t mind playing in anything other than the Top of Iowa Conference East Division.

‘Real season’ begins for N-P wrestling team

It isn’t that the last two months haven’t meant anything, but ask Nashua-Plainfield coach Al Frost about the Top of Iowa tournament on Saturday and the excitement rises in his voice.

Can’t keep them down

The Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball team split a pair of games last week, falling 70-34 at home to Mason City Newman Catholic on Tuesday before bouncing back to take a 78-50 victory on the road at Central Springs on Friday.
