The varsity girls plus one big banana huddle before the start of the race at the New Hampton Invitational Thursday.
     New Hampton's girls were huddling before the start of their home cross country meet Thursday and it looked to be a very serious moment. Until you saw this giant banana….     Just call her coach Chiquita.     "Home meets are always bittersweet," said coach Jamie Ohrt. "On the one hand it's...
New Hampton center Tyler Rentschler "pancakes" an Osage defender on a touchdown run by Braydon Fisher in the first half of Friday's game.
  New Hampton bounced back in a big way Friday night as the Chickasaws used a strong run game and a suffocating defense to roll past Osage 32-6 in Class 2A, District 2 play. Coach Scott Frerichs team, which had lost 13-7 at Crestwood last week, improved to 5-2 overall and 4-1 in district play. More...
One of four seniors competing for the Chickasaw boys this year, Brennen Nullan ran a 23:19 at West Delaware.
    It was a soggy afternoon as New Hampton’s cross country runners made a trek to West Delaware Tuesday.    Not because of the rain — that held off until the ride back to New Hampton. But while the runners were competing, they became soggy because of the humidity.    “It was extremely humid,” said...
Keagan John will be throwing the ball 90 minutes early tonight as the New Hampton-Osage game start time has been moved up to 6 p.m.
New Hampton and Osage will kick off their varsity football game at 6 p.m. because of weather conditions. The fresh-soph game, which was scheduled to start at 4:45 p.m., has been postponed. The National Weather Service is forecasting anywhere between 1 and 2 inches of rain to fall on the area...
After New Hampton’s first-set win over Waverly-Shell Rock Tuesday, Savannah Anderson shows why she leads the Chickasaws in kills this season — she can jump.
     There may have been just a moment or two of sadness after the Chickasaw 3-1 loss to Waverly-Shell Rock Tuesday night, but it didn’t last long.     It was senior night at the school, and it was a good volleyball match. As the seniors — including Callie Speltz, Kaelyn Ambrose, Kallie Olson,...
During a match played earlier this season, Nashua-Plainfield’s Miranda Crabtree watches teammate Britney Holthaus make a great effort as she dives for a dig.
     Britney Holthaus and Sydney Hansen never wavered, even as the two Nashua-Plainfield senior volleyball players endured a five-win campaign last season and a 2-10 start this year.     The two played key roles on the Huskies’ runs to the Corn Bowl Conference championship in 2014 and the Top of...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Aubrey Eick charges for the finish line at her team’s home meet earlier this season.
     Aubrey Eick and Faith Carpenter almost answered in perfect unison when they were asked what they preferred — long-distance runs or “track workouts” — when it comes to cross country practice?     “Long runs,” they said as they both laughed.     Yet they know those track workouts have been...
Nashua-Plainfield senior Mason Hyde follows the block of Tanner Haut during a game played earlier this season.
     They took their lumps as sophomores and juniors to experience games as seniors like the one coming up on Friday.     Thanks to a come-from-behind 26-12 win over West Fork last Friday, Nashua-Plainfield will be playing its most meaningful game this late in the season since the Huskies advanced...
Members of the New Hampton girls cross country team warm up before the Mason City Invitational last month, but Thursday, the Chickasaws get to run at home as the New Hampton Invitational will be held.
    The one and only chance to watch the New Hampton cross country team at home takes place Thursday, Oct. 5 at the New Hampton Golf and Country Club.    Runners from Turkey Valley, Nashua-Plainfield, Sumner-Fredericksburg, Central Springs, Clayton Ridge, Crestwood, Denver, Dunkerton, Lansing Kee,...
Perhaps the biggest improvement in times this year has come from Turkey Valley sophomore Lucas Scheidel, who set his second personal record of the season at Crestwood Saturday.
    For the first time in three meets, Turkey Valley’s boys had the numbers for a varsity team score when they ran at the Crestwood Invitational Saturday.    But just barely. While most of the other school had the luxury of throwing out a score or two, all the Trojan scores counted, and they came...
