New Hampton’s Jake Zwanziger drives past a defender in Friday’s game at Oelwein.
The halftime talk didn't sink in until about three minutes had elapsed in the second half, but when it did, New Hampton took firm control of Friday night's game with Oelwein.  The Chickasaws used a 25-0 run that stretched deep into the fourth quarter on its way to a 61-35 victory that not only gave...
Oelwein defenders rush to try and cover Emma Nicolaisen during New Hampton’s 74-57 win over the Huskies Friday.
Against Oelwein Friday, New Hampton's girls had an insurmountable lead early in the third quarter. Or did they?  When Darian Wegner scored on an offensive putback, the Chickasaws led by nearly 20, 41-22. But the Huskies worked their way back to within 10, 63-53 with just over three minutes left in...
Turkey Valley’s Elli Winter scored six points in the Lady Trojan win over North Fayette Valley.
It looked like Turkey Valley might keep their streak going in the first half of a battle against Springville Saturday night. Although each team had knocked down a half-dozen baskets before intermission, the second-ranked Lady Trojans held a 20-13 lead against the top-ranked Orioles.  Springville...
New Hampton’s Mason Cleveland shows plenty of emotion after pinning Crestwood’s Kaden Anderlik during Thursday night’s triangular.
On a night when New Hampton all but wrapped up its second consecutive Northeast Iowa Conference dual meet championship, the signature moment may have come in meet the Chickasaws won 70-6.  That win over Crestwood and a 34-31 victory over Waverly-Shell Rock pushed the Chickasaws to 5-0 in NEIC duals...
With a combined seven postponements between the boys and the girls, New Hampton basketball players like Lexi Rasmussen are going to be busy in the coming weeks.
Back in November, New Hampton boys basketball coach Chad Sweitzer touted depth as one of his team’s strengths.  The Chickasaws may need it, thanks to a rash of postponements that will force New Hampton into playing 13 games over the next four weeks, starting Friday when Sweitzer’s team looked to...
New Hampton hosting a dual tournament in early January is nothing new.  Neither is the Chickasaws taking part in a quadrangular with Denver/Tripoli, Wapsie Valley and Dike-New Hartford.  Yet both events have something new attached to them this year as the Chickasaws will host the first ever Doc...
Jordon Snyder takes the ball away from the Vikings’ Benjamin Ernst.
The height and athleticism by two inside players for Edgewood-Colesburg was more than the Turkey Valley boys could handle Tuesday. The Trojans went to 6-2 in the Upper Iowa Conference with a 62-43 loss to the Vikings.    Ed-Co had 10 points on the board before Turkey Valley even scored, by the...
Turkey Valley is very good at scoring points off the press, and it all starts on the in-bounds pass. Morgen Kuennen gets a piece of the ball, deflecting it just enough for Sadie Nymeyer [34] to get the steal Tuesday against Edgewood-Colesburg.
Morgen Kuennen’s face lit up when she talked about her foul total.    “I only had one! Or maybe two [it was one]. I think we moved our feet better, we had some good practices over break and I think we’re faster now. We pushed the ball harder tonight.”    No rust to shake off here. The Turkey Valley...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Abby Lumley (left) and Katie White almost look like they’re deciding who should pick up the loose ball, but Lumley eventually did and scored in the Huskies’ win over Riceville on Thursday.
Maybe it wasn’t one of those “must-win” games record wise, but there’s no question that Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball coach Josh Smith and his Huskies wanted to enter the Christmas break on a high note.  Mission accomplished.  The Huskies used a 1-3-1 press to cause havoc on the defensive end...
Turkey Valley’s Luke Anderson powers his way to the basket in the Trojans’ win over South Winneshiek Thursday.
While Turkey Valley's boys haven't enjoyed the same attention in the past couple of years that the girls have, they're inching their way into some of the top statistical categories that go along with a successful season.  And with their 60-43 win over South Winn Thursday, the Trojans finished the...
