Jakob Whitinger uses his “all-out, never-say-die” attitude during a match at the Nashua-Plainfield Invitational earlier this season.
The wins for the Nashua-Plainfield wrestling team were nice, but the losses and the lessons they taught may be just as important.  In the end, coach Al Frost will take the first half of the season that came to an end with a 2-1 night at the Huskies’ home quadrangular and a solid 2-4 showing at the...
Shown bringing the ball up the court against Starmont earlier this season, Kassidy Reicks scored eight points in the Turkey Valley win over Tripoli. Also in the photo are Shelby Reicks, left, and Lydia Schuchhardt.
Neither team scored in the first couple minutes of a Turkey Valley-Tripoli clash last Thursday night, before the Panthers took a 2-1 lead.But an 18-3 run by the Lady Trojans closed out the quarter and pretty well assured the TV girls of their seventh win against no losses on the season. They won 58...
Nathan Mueterthies brought down five rebounds and scored five points in Turkey Valley’s sixth win of the season.
Turkey Valley's overall shooting percentage was nothing to write home about as the Trojans were defeating Tripoli Thursday, 51-35.  In all shots taken, the winners made baskets at a 33 percent clip. But single the 3-point percentage out, and that was outstanding at 64 percent. And Levi Izer's 6-for...
New Hampton’s Keegan Tenge puts the finishing touches on a pin of Charles City’s Dylan Koresh.
Keegan Tenge and his New Hampton wrestling teammates share one common bond with Chickasaw coach Nick Hemann.  They hate losing.  “But you know what, take away five or so matches, and I’m totally happy with this weekend,” Hemann said the day after his team finished third in the 32-team Battle of...
Turkey Valley won’t finish in the upper half of many tournaments with only two wrestlers in action, but then again, they weren’t last in the Chris Davis Invitational at Wapsie Valley Saturday.  With only Cale Reicks and Kelby Reicks competing, Turkey Valley was ninth of 10 teams at the event,...
With the type of halftime leads Turkey Valley's girls have had so far this season, the coaching staff can afford to experiment a bit. In their first three wins, they've led at the half by an average of just over 29 points.    Those successes included a win over Central Friday and a 49-19 victory...
New Hampton’s Tristan Sweitzer drives to the basket in the first half of Thursday’s game at Mason City.
The margin was worse, but Chad Sweitzer saw at least some progress Thursday night when his New Hampton boys basketball team fell to 0-2 with a 79-46 loss to Mason City.  The loss came two nights after the Chickasaws dropped their season opener by 26 points to another Class 4A team, Cedar Rapids...
    Early entries must be postmarked today [Tuesday] for the 39th annual Lions Wrestling Tournament to be held this Saturday, Dec. 10. Walk-ins will also be welcome.   There will be four age divisions with four-wrestler brackets  being determined by weight. The Junior division, 5-6 grades, and the...
The term free throw is a bit of a misnomer, as they're not free and, in fact, at times the shots are very hard to sink.  Although Turkey Valley's boys won their first game of the season, they did so with a paltry 13 percent at the line, but their charity stripe effort in the second game was a...
New Hampton’s Keaton Geerts, shown here working for a takedown in New Hampton’s season-opening meet with Independence, was one of five Chickasaws to wrestle in the finals at the Independence Invitational this weekend.
Yeah, New Hampton is pretty good at wrestling.  Just ask the other 24 teams that took part in the inaugural Independence Invitational Friday and Saturday.  Yet, Chickasaw coach Nick Hemann, as happy as he was with winning a team title, knows winning Indee can only be a stepping stone for his...
