New Hampton senior Ivan Camarillo gets in a little “pre-practice” work during the first week of soccer practice.

Chickasaws play their first-ever soccer match

Ivan Camarillo wouldn’t mind skipping right to Thursday evening, and it’s not because the New Hampton High School senior wants his spring break to begin.

“Hey, I’m looking forward to a couple of days off, don’t get me wrong,” Camarillo said with a laugh, “but what I’m really looking forward to is finally getting to play soccer. We’ve been waiting so long for this, and now it’s here. I mean I’m so excited I can’t even explain it.”

It’s totally understandable, for Camarillo and his Chickasaw teammates have been waiting for years to take the field for good ol’ New Hampton High, and on Thursday evening, they will do just that when the Chickasaws open their debut soccer season with a match at Charles City.

“I don’t have a countdown going yet,” Camarillo said Sunday afternoon, “but I can tell you in a couple of hours, we’re four days away.”
