Elliott Dietzenbach's defense helped the Trojans record a win over MFL.
Turkey Valley coach Chris Sullivan thought Monday’s game at MFL MarMac had a “district” feel to it. But it also was a key conference game, with the 64-59 Turkey Valley win setting up the Trojans for a top-two finish in the Upper Iowa Conference. MFL actually helped the Trojans in the UIC standings...
Coach Chad Pemble didn’t think his girls were intimidated by Crestwood’s 6-foot-3 junior Sharon Goodman, who has already committed to attend and play basketball at the University of Iowa. But the Chickasaw girls were smart enough to know that they didn’t want the Cadet — not only the conference’s...
New Hampton senior Nolan Howard drives to the basket during the first half of Monday’s game against Crestwood.
It was a tale of two halves — one good, even very good at times; one horrendous — for New Hampton boys basketball Monday night. Unfortunately, it was the bad half that carried the night as Crestwood outscored the Chickasaws 45-14 over the final 16 minutes of the game to roll to a 72-42 win and...
Brianna Bienemann puts up a shot in a Nashua-Plainfield game earlier this season.
Nashua-Plainfield girls basketball coach was asked in an email about his team’s practice schedule the past couple of weeks because of the winter weather and array of makeup games. His response: “It. Has. Been. A. Struggle.” The Huskies lost four days of school last week to the weather and then...
Nashua-Plainfield’s John Krull leads a fast break during a recent Top of Iowa Conference game.
He may have liked to have seen a little bit better shooting percentage, but make no mistake about it, Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball coach Sam Brown loved watching his team march to the free-throw line Saturday. That ability to get to the line — 45 times, no less — was huge as the Huskies...
Max Schwickerath works for an escape against Independence’s Joe Prieber during Wednesday’s regional duals.
Maybe New Hampton/Turkey Valley co-coach Andy Geerts said it best Wednesday night. “A good, old-fashioned Northeast Iowa dual,” he said quietly and then paused, almost as if he wanted to go back in time and find some way, some how to change the outcome. Independence 36, New Hampton/Turkey Valley 34...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Evan Kalainoff puts the finishing touches on a pin of North Tama’s Tyler Morrison during Saturday’s Class 1A sectional tournament at Clarksville.
The goal for the Nashua-Plainfield wrestling team was simple Saturday: Win a Class 1A sectional team title. The Huskies accomplished their mission, although it didn’t go quite the way coach Al Frost envisioned. “We had some disappointment, I’m not going to kid you,” the veteran coach said after his...
Nashua-Plainfield's Jakob Whitinger wrestles at Saturday's sectional tournament in Clarksville.
Nashua-Plainfield’s dual meet season came to an end Tuesday night, but the Huskies put up a respectable showing in a 47-25 loss to MFL-Mar-Mac, which came into the Class 1A regional duals as the eight-ranked team in the state. The Huskies got wins from Jakob Whitinger (113), Trey Nelson (120),...
Turkey Valley’s Kannon Leuenberger provides the defensive pressure during the Trojans win over South Winneshiek Friday night.
When South Winn hit a 3-point shot with 28 seconds left in Friday’s game against the Trojans, the Warriors cut a Turkey Valley lead — which had been as much as eight points earlier in the quarter — to three points. When Eli Reicks was fouled and went to the line to shoot a pair of free throws,...
Turkey Valley’s Jordan Lukes grabs a rebound during the Trojans’ win over South Winneshiek on Friday night.
After Turkey Valley’s 66-52 win over South Winn Friday, Trojan junior Breanna Busta thought her team passed the test of having back-to-back games — they won 49-42 over Central Thursday — with flying colors. She still had some energy left. But that was before Saturday’s match-up against Kee High. ...
