Jenna Schmitt competes for the Turkey Valley girls during some inclement weather earlier in the season.
The forecast was threatening, but Turkey Valley’s golfers were able to complete a big challenge against South Winn and Decorah Tuesday.    Coach John Reicks called their competition two of the best programs in the state in a meet dubbed the Winneshiek County Classic.    “Even though we came out on...
Ryan Anderson sinks a putt during the New Hampton win over Waverly Monday.
It was a good warm-up for the New Hampton coed golf invitational this Saturday. When the weekend rolls around, the Chickasaw boys will host Denver, North Fayette Valley and South Winn in an 18-hole meet at the New Hampton Golf and Country Club, and, at least on paper, the NH boys look to be the...
New Hampton senior Oliver Perez beat his previous career-best time in the 3,200 by almost 10 seconds Tuesday in Charles City.
New Hampton may not have a lot of depth when it comes to boys track, but the Chickasaws certainly have some versatile athletes.  Junior Alex Schumacher was the latest Chickasaw to show off his versatility as he ran a solid leg on the 4x800 relay, led off New Hampton’s winning distance medley relay...
Joe Jordan hit 47 of the 50 targets as New Hampton was hosting Cedar Falls and Echo Valley Tuesday.
Cedar Falls may be a much larger school, but they don’t have the numbers on their trapshooting squad that New Hampton does.    Or the talent.    The Chickasaws had the top squad in a triangular at home Tuesday, which included Echo Valley, as New Hampton Red put up a very good score of 231, beating...
A career-best throw in the discus by Serina Hovden placed the Chickasaw senior in third place at the New Hampton Invitational Monday.
    One thing Chickasaw girls track coach Jeanette Laures likes about this year’s group of seniors is how diversified they are.     Between Hunter Gerber, Kayla Gilbert, Serina Hovden, Darian Wegner and Mariah Wickham, there’s sprinters, distance runners, throwers and jumpers.     “It’s nice to...
Nashua-Plainfield junior Nicole Harrington watches her tee shot during a quadrangular that was held in Tripoli last week.
It hasn’t exactly gone as planned for the Nashua-Plainfield golf teams so far this season, but then again, youth plus inexperience often equals inconsistency.  But the Huskies, especially on the girls side, showed some signs of life this past week.  The girls finished second in all three meets — a...
The Nashua-Plainfield trapshooting team had a relatively short week due to the Easter weekend, but they were able to enjoy the nice weather along the way.  Senior Nick Bucknell started the week off with a score of 48 out of 50 on Tuesday evening, but the career high for the Nashua-Plainfield senior...
Dayton Hansen anchors the Nashua-Plainfield distance medley team to a second-place finish at the New Hampton Coed last Thursday night.
The places aren’t always what the Nashua-Plainfield boys track team wants, but ask its coach, and he’ll tell you that the grit and determination are there.  “I love the way our kids compete,” coach Chase Sudol said, “and I know a lot of them want to place higher, but the effort they’re giving, that...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Kylie Laube runs the anchor leg on what is proving to be a very good Nashua-Plainfield 4x800 team during the New Hampton Coed Invitational last week.
Competing in two track and field meets isn’t easy.  Just ask the Nashua-Plainfield girls, who finished fifth at their coed meet last Tuesday night and followed it up with a sixth-place finish two nights later at the New Hampton Coed.  “When we are in the middle of our competition season, our meets...
New Hampton’s Aden Zwanziger chips onto the green during a meet played earlier this month against Charles City.
As a coach, Bill Glenn doesn't feel his motivational skills are needed much at all while the head mentor of the boys golf team.  While he may impart his golf skills to the players, he doesn't have to push them to become better.  "These guys have a friendly rivalry going," he said after the team won...
