Saturday morning there were three area boys' teams in the state track meet that had entries in the sprint medley relay. In Class 1A Turkey Valley was eighth in the event with Will Einwalter, Cody Hackman, Wyatt Blazek and Cale Reicks finishing in 1:37.59, just a hair better than their previous...
Celena Quirk and her New Hampton track teammates competed at the NEIC meet Thursday.
Members of the New Hampton and Turkey Valley track teams — save for four Chickasaw girls who competed at the Drake Relays — have experienced their sport’s version of a “timeout” lately.  Before Thursday night’s Northeast Iowa Conference track meet in Waverly, the Chickasaws hadn’t competed on the...
A track season is all about goals. Some are met, some aren't. When Turkey Valley's Kassidy Reicks threw 13 feet farther in the discus at Sumner-Fredericksburg than she'd thrown in all of this, her rookie throwing season, coach Brian Schmitt just turned around and made a new goal.    "It was an...
Turkey Valley’s Cody Hackman, right, hands to Will Einwalter in a sprint medley relay earlier this season.
The first meet that Turkey Valley was scheduled to run at Sumner-Fredericksburg this season was called off due to wet grounds, but the second coed was held Monday at Sumner, giving the Trojan boys another team title over the eight-team field.    There were 20 events — 19 that scored points, plus...
Jordon Snyder had a personal record in the 3,200-meter run at Kee Thursday.
While most of us tried to stay out of the wind and chilly temperatures Thursday afternoon, Turkey Valley's track runners were competing in a coed meet at Kee High.    "Oh, it wasn't that bad," Trojan junior Jordon Snyder said after winning both the 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs. "I mean, it was still...
Turkey Valley senior John Gossling set a personal record while finishing fourth in the open 400 at Charles City Tuesday.
Among the eight teams in the "gray" division, Turkey Valley's boys took second in a meet held at Charles City Tuesday. There was also a group of larger schools at the meet as another seven teams competed in the "orange" division.    Turkey Valley trailed only St. Ansgar in the gray standings, 170...
New Hampton’s Jake Usher holds a slight lead over Nashua-Plainfield’s Dayton Hansen on the backstretch during the distance medley relay at the New Hampton Coed Thursday.
New Hampton’s Jake Usher and Turkey Valley’s Wyatt Blazek are obviously two different runners.  One, Usher, is a middle-distance and long distance runner; the other is a sprinter.  But both seniors had banner nights for their respective teams on Thursday night at the New Hampton Coed and both have...
New Hampton’s Rachel Rinken gets plenty of height as she jumps into the long jump pit on her way to an event victory during the New Hampton Coed Thursday evening.
While they were on opposite ends of the team standings at the New Hampton Coed Invitational, both the host Chickasaws and Turkey Valley girls had their highlights as they competed on a windy, but dry Thursday meet.  The smallest team at the meet, Turkey Valley was only able to muster one win — the...
Turkey Valley’s two 200-meter runners — Ellie Winter (right) and Addy Einwalter —in the distance medley relay complete the exchange during the Nashua-Plainfield Coed Invitational on Tuesday.
A Plan B would have been nice Monday. While fully automatic track timing is generally a great thing to have, when it’s not working, it can get ugly.  Like at Oelwein, where the West Central Coed Relays were held.  “It was crazy,” said girls coach Brian Schmitt. “It was a cold and very long meet, we...
After missing his first attempt, Kyle Langreck makes this 5’ high jump and would go on to clear 5-2 as well to place second at Nashua-Plainfield Tuesday.
Only two races into Tuesday’s meet at Nashua-Plainfield and Mark Scott was enjoying the day so much more than the night before.  “Last night was cold, wet and it took forever,” said the Turkey Valley coach. “This meet is already running better.”  Computer glitches in the automatic timing system...
