Jalyssa Blazek
When Turkey Valley coach Sarah Bakula saw where freshman Jalyssa Blazek was two-thirds through the Upper Iowa Conference race, Bakula couldn’t help but smile. “She got out with the leaders and she was in perfect control of her race,” Bakula said, “and I knew she was sitting — well, running...

Turkey Valley's Jalyssa Blazek won the varsity girls meet at South Winn.

Lydia Gessner was one of seven Chickasaws to run their best times of the season at Saturday’s Crestwood Invitational.
The New Hampton and Turkey Valley cross country teams finally enjoyed a “normal” week, and they capped it off with a shining run on a cold Saturday outing in Cresco. “To get a chance to run two meets and to have a chance to hold normal practices, we’ve been waiting forever for this,” New Hampton...

Turkey Valley’s Jalyssa Blazek shows the effects of Luther’s muddy course at Saturday’s meet.

Perhaps the biggest improvement in times this year has come from Turkey Valley sophomore Lucas Scheidel, who set his second personal record of the season at Crestwood Saturday.
    For the first time in three meets, Turkey Valley’s boys had the numbers for a varsity team score when they ran at the Crestwood Invitational Saturday.    But just barely.
