Normally, rain and golf coexisting does not have a positive outcome. However, the boys golf team for New Hampton is far from normal, and they proved it on Friday. With precipitation falling from the sky most of the day, the Chickasaws managed to post one of their best outings of the season at the...
Turkey Valley’s Rachelle Smith intently watches her putt roll toward the hole during the Class 1A first-round regional tournament that was held last Monday.
There were no surprises when Turkey Valley’s girls competed at the Class 1A regionals last Monday, according to coach John Reicks. “Realistically going in to the meet, I was hoping we could eke out a fourth place finish and that is exactly what happened,” he said after his team’s season came to an...
Turkey Valley’s Jalyssa Blazek rounds the curve as she runs the anchor leg of the distance medley for the Trojans at the Class 1A state track meet.
Turkey Valley junior Elliott Dietzenbach couldn’t help but laugh when asked about the difference between Thursday’s 4x800 and Friday’s distance medley at the Class 1A state track meet. “The 20 degrees difference was nice, really nice,” Dietzenbach said, “but seriously, I think the big thing was the...
New Hampton’s Rachel Rinken gives it everything she has as she leaps into the long jump pit at the Class 2A state track meet last Thursday.
Rachel Rinken knew she had to “hit” that first jump at the Class 2A state track meet last Thursday. A little less than a month ago, the New Hampton junior had been involved in a farm accident, and she still isn’t anywhere near 100 percent. “I knew the first one was huge,” Rinken said, “just because...
New Hampton senior Noah Fenske watches his 60-foot throw at the Class 2A state track and field meet last Thursday.
This wasn’t the way it was supposed to end, but New Hampton senior Noah Fenske was one discus throw away Friday from seeing his brilliant track career end in utter disappointment. A day after becoming the first Chickasaw to ever win a state title in a field event with a dominating performance in...
The annual selfie — coach Eric Olson with the state qualifying Chickasaw girls, along with assistant coach Paul Ewert.
On a windy Monday, New Hampton's girls finished 37 strokes lower than any other team at Region 3 of the Class 2A regional finals. The win  advances the girls to the state tournament, which will start next Tuesday, May 28 in Ames.  The 339 scored by the Chickasaw girls was, in fact, the lowest score...
Savannah Schmitt putts at the Silver Springs course earlier this season.
Turkey Valley girls golf coach John Reicks knows that there are folks out there who don’t appreciate just how tough the game of golf can be. The way his Trojans handled the Upper Iowa Conference girls golf tournament last Tuesday made him appreciate his girls even more. “Our girls did a nice job of...
New Hampton’s Nick TeKippe fires a shot during a meet held earlier this month at the Fredericksburg Sportsman’s Club in Boyd.
For the first time all spring, the New Hampton trapshooting team lost a meet to someone other than Waverly-Shell Rock.  Osage 1 came away victorious on Saturday at Fredericksburg Sportsman’s Club, defeating runner-up New Hampton Red 240-239. “It’s getting to the time of the year when scores go up...
Leading the Chickasaw girls as the conference champion, Allison Nuss fired a 74 at Decorah last week.
To be honest, Eric Olson is never really all that surprised when Allison Nuss breaks a school record, yet he’ll be the first to admit he didn’t see Friday’s round of 70 at the Forest City Invitational coming. “That’s a tough course, especially their back nine,” Olson said after Nuss broke her own...
Turkey Valley’s Keegan Balk watches his drive sail down the fairway.
It was a sectional field Turkey Valley coach John Reicks thought his team could have qualified in, had they been able to play with their top two golfers.
