Nashua-Plainfield’s Jakob Whitinger  competes at the New Hampton Invitational last week.
As Jennifer Kalainoff watched her runners cross the finish line last Thursday night, the Nashua-Plainfield coach admitted she felt a twinge of disappointment.  The places were fine at the annual New Hampton Invitational, but the times seemed off.  And it turned out there was good reason for that as...
Both Turkey Valley’s Sloan Huinker, left, and Emily Luzum ran their best times of the season while competing for South Winn’s cross country team at the North Linn Invitational.
It felt a little more like fall when South Winn ran at the North Linn Invitational Saturday, as the temperature was 45 degrees on the Troy Mills course. At least it was sunny and calm.    South Winn's girls were fourth of 19 teams and the varsity boys were sixth of 23 teams as nearly 600 high...
Bailey Knowlton, shown passing the ball last week, finished with 21 digs in the BCLUW Tournament.
In the past five years, New Hampton has either been first or second at the BCLUW Tournament. This year it was first, as the Chickasaws went 5-0 on the day to take the title.  "We are really starting to click," coach Jess Geerts said after her team defeated North Tama, East Marshall and Gladbrook-...
Wyatt Blazek had another productive night, scoring three times. Part of his success came from solid blocking like this, from Cale Reicks (22) and Riley Schmitt.
Scott Kime would probably say that the waning moments of the first half of Turkey Valley's 52-27 win over Northwood-Kensett were more enjoyable than the early going.  After the Trojans capped their first possession on a 34-yard Wyatt Blazek touchdown run, the Vikings came right back and drilled...
New Hampton’s Michael Drewelow competes at the New Hampton Invitational that was held last week at Jackson Heights Golf Club.
As Oliver Perez made his third lap around the Jackson Heights golf course Thursday, he was being cheered on by his coach. He pointed to her and said “this one’s for you.”  Now, Jamie Quass is not often quiet at any meet, but that subdued her for a time, and there may have been a tear or two.  “She’...
New Hampton’s offensive line opens a hole up for Josh Fenske to score on a 1-yard touchdown run in the second quarter of Friday’s game at Osage.
The boxscore — at least on the offensive side — from Friday night may not contain the names of Kam Pfaffle, Noah Hopp, Tyler Rentschler, Noah Fenske, Dillon Roberson and Trevor Svec.But make no mistake about it, the big boys in the trenches had plenty to do with New Hampton’s 50-14 win over Osage.“...
Turkey Valley’s Isaac Franzen ran his best time of the season while competing for South Winn at the Warrior Invitational. Franzen was 40th of the 90 high school boys at the meet.
The South Winn cross country team needs to look no further than their own back yard for some of the best competition in the state; Decorah won both the boys and girls team standings in the South Winn Invitational held Tuesday.    While South Winn has a number of runners to choose from, the Turkey...
Cody Hackman stiff-arms a Northwood-Kensett defensive player during a 50-yard touchdown run Friday.
After a quarter the score was tied 8-8, but in the second quarter of a District 2 match-up between Turkey Valley and Northwood-Kensett, the Trojans pulled ahead on two long scoring plays.  Cody Hackman ran in a touchdown from 50 yards out and then passed 46 yards to Walker Leibold to give the...
New Hampton's Josh Fenske finds the end zone in the second quarter of Friday's game at Osage.
Keaton Geerts scored three touchdowns and Josh Fenske added two as New Hampton rebounded in a big way Friday night with a 50-14 victory over Osage.The win improved the Chickasaws to 6-1 overall and 4-1 in Class 2A, District 2 and came a week after New Hampton fell to Crestwood 21-20.Geerts gave the...
Chickasaw senior Miguel Salas ran his career-best time at the West Delaware Invitational.
    Some people will endure a lot of pain to be in a sport they love.    Take Jake Usher, for example. The New Hampton senior has Patella Retraction Syndrome, which makes a race — which is usually painful to begin with — even more painful.    "On a scale of 1 to 10, when I'm running, the pain is...
