Turkey Valley softball

Josie Weber gets a high five from coach Junior Hackman while rounding third with a home run, during a Turkey Valley 16-1 win over Postville last Wednesday.
We’ve written about big innings before, but this one takes the cake. During game one of last week’s Turkey Valley-Postville doubleheader, the first frame ended in a 1-1 tie. Postville didn’t score in the top half of the second, but when the Trojans were up in the bottom half of the inning — before...
Turkey Valley’s Jordan Lukes pulls into third base in the Trojans’ game against New Hampton’s JV team, as the throw was a little off for third baseman Kara Crooks at the New Hampton tournament on Saturday.
Being able to bounce back is key for any team, and the Turkey Valley softball team was able to do that throughout last week. It started last Monday, when the Trojans fell to MFL-Mar-Mac in the first game of a doubleheader 7-3. Turkey Valley held a 3-0 lead going into the sixth, but the Bulldogs...
Turkey Valley’s Kara Reicks fires a throw to first base to record an out in the Trojans’ win over Central Elkader last Wednesday.
When the ball sailed over the fence in Turkey Valley’s second game against Central Elkader Wednesday, Shayla Kuennen didn’t realize it hit the scoreboard, then bounced back onto the field. “I just started running right away so I could get at least a double,” she said of her second home run of the...
Turkey Valley’s Hailey Elsbernd makes a nice running catch during Saturday’s Crestwood Invitational.
The Turkey Valley softball team got their first win of the season last Wednesday, as they defeated North Fayette Valley in the first game of a doubleheader 19-6 in just six innings. Heading into the sixth, the Trojans led by just three, but they scored a whopping 10 runs in this inning to extend...
Emily Busta throws out a South Winn runner earlier in the same week the Trojan girls split a doubleheader against Clayton Ridge.
For a team that only won two games last year, to finish with a winning record in the Upper Iowa Conference is a definite feather in Turkey Valley’s softball cap this year. But the team needed a walk-off double by Shayla Kuennen to do it. After the Trojans lost 6-5 in game one against Clayton Ridge...
Emily Busta claimed to be “kinda rusty” at the plate early in the season.  But after the Turkey Valley senior belted her eighth and ninth home runs of the season Monday against South Winn, she admits she’s now pretty confident. Her first home run of the night came in game one and batted in three...
Kim Fischer not only pitched but swung a big bat in several recent Turkey Valley softball games.
After North Fayette Valley scored a run in the first inning of game two against Turkey Valley Friday, five pitches into the bottom half of the inning the Trojans had a 2-1 lead, thanks to a triple by Jaedyn Winter and home run by Emily Busta. Those big bats would help the Lady Trojans win 5-3 over...
Emily Busta was one of several Turkey Valley players to shine during Wednesday’s doubleheader sweep of Postville.
Turkey Valley not only beat the rain on Wednesday night, the Trojans’ softball team did it in style as they pound out 35 hits and scored 45 runs in a doubleheader sweep of Postville. The two teams moved the start time of the doubleheader up to 4 p.m. because of the forecast, but the Trojans were...
Shown hitting a single against MFL, Shayla Kuennen was one of three Trojan girls to send the ball over the fence in an 18-7 win over Decorah Tuesday.
Even though Turkey Valley lost their first softball conference games of the season Monday to MFL, the Trojan girls hit the ball well in the doubleheader. But not as well as they did against Decorah Tuesday. Although the Vikings only have a couple of wins this year, many of their losses have been...
The annual New Hampton Invitational will definitely have a local feel to it this year, as in addition to the host Chickasaws, Turkey Valley and Nashua-Plainfield are in the field for the tournament that will be held at Mikkelson Park on Saturday. The tournament begins at 10 a.m. when  the...
