Be warned, New Hampton sports fans: If you sit next to Carson Babcock at an event and have extra food, you might not have it for very long. The New Hampton/Turkey Valley junior has made a big jump, at least in wrestling terms, in weight this season. After competing at 138 a year ago, Babcock is now...
Turkey Valley’s Ali Hoffert and Katlyn Baumler trap New Hampton’s Carlee Rochford while pressing.
The last time Turkey Valley defeated New Hampton in girls basketball was in 2015. The Trojan boys basketball team hasn’t won against the Chickasaws since 2010.  Both of these streaks came to an end last Monday night, as Turkey Valley swept New Hampton in a varsity doubleheader. Pressure, pressure,...

Many of the same individuals who competed for Turkey Valley’s state semifinal football team participate in basketball for the Trojans. After a historic year on the gridiron, coach Chris Sullivan hopes it will translate to the court this winter as they chase their fourth consecutive Upper Iowa...
New Hampton’s Sydney Wegner blows past her defender to get to the basket in a contest against Turkey Valley during the 2018-2019 season.
After having a good, but not great season in 2018-2019 by finishing with a record of 11-9, New Hampton girls basketball coach Chad Pemble is hoping this year’s group will take the next step to become an elite team. “Our goals are to compete for a conference championship and a berth to the state...
Last season, the Turkey Valley girls basketball team owned a solid record of 13-8. However, the Trojans are hoping to take a step forward and be even better this year. There is good cause for these rising expectations, as they didn’t lose a single senior to graduation.  “We are really excited to...

The New Hampton boys basketball team graduated six of their top eight scorers from a squad that made it to the substate game a season ago. Even though they lost a lot of talented players, coach Ryan Rausch says the goals will remain the same, and he has lofty expectations for this year’s group. “We...
You can tell the basketball boys in the background, as they’re watching to make sure Turkey Valley’s Jaycie Byrne’s foot doesn’t hit the line — it doesn’t — as she grabs one of her seven steals in the Trojans’ season opener.
The floor was full of superheroes at Turkey Valley Tuesday. And not just because of the impressive 57-18 win the Trojan girls opened the season with over Clayton Ridge. Turkey Valley’s girls chose a service project this year for participating in the Iowa Hall of Pride Challenge, and that was to...
Turkey Valley's Ethan Leibold was a first team all-state selection.

The lone individual to be named to...
New Hampton’s Carter Ferrie chases down a Charles City ballcarrier.
Carter Ferrie and Rachel Rinken weren’t going to lie — making an all-state team was important to them.  Granted, they would both trade the honor in a heartbeat if it meant New Hampton could have made the state football playoffs and state volleyball tournament. Still, the two Chickasaws are proud to...
When the first rankings come out, New Hampton/Turkey Valley wrestling coach Matt Paulus doesn’t expect to find his Chickasaws in them. And he’s just fine with that. “I don’t mind laying low, building it up and have people think we’re down,” he said, “because I think in the long run, we have the...
