Turkey Valley softball

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...
Playing in conference games, Jaedyn Winter sports a batting average of .600, which includes a 3-for-4 effort in the 8-6 win over Central.
Again, the pressure was on for the Turkey Valley softball team. In game one of a doubleheader at Central Elkader Wednesday, they went from being down by four runs after five innings to a 7-5 lead after six, then added a run in the top of the seventh inning. They just needed three more outs for...
 Josie Weber is congratulated by Emily Busta and Aleah Hackman after chucking her first varsity win, 7-5 over West Central.
Apparently it takes more than a broken back to keep long-time Turkey Valley coach Frank Wilson away from the softball diamond. He suffered that injury as he fell while putting up a net for the batting cage this spring. But while Justin Izer has taken over as assistant to head coach Junior Hackman,...
Sadie Nymeyer, along with Kim Fischer, was named to the UIC honorable mention list at the conclusion of the 2017 season.
   All of the Turkey Valley girls deserved to be named to the Upper Iowa Conference honor squads just for sticking with the program this year, but that’s not the way these things work.  So at the conclusion of a disappointing season, Sadie Nymeyer and Kim Fischer were the only ones listed as they...
Turkey Valley’s Shayla Kuennen had a double and a triple in the Trojans’ split with Starmont.
   After struggling to get their first win of the season at Riceville, the Turkey Valley softball team won their second on the very next try when they beat Starmont in the first game of a doubleheader Thursday on the road.   The Lady Trojans won 3-2, but the Stars came back for the second-game win...
