Two Trojan wrestlers compete at tourney

Turkey Valley won’t finish in the upper half of many tournaments with only two wrestlers in action, but then again, they weren’t last in the Chris Davis Invitational at Wapsie Valley Saturday.  With only Cale Reicks and Kelby Reicks competing, Tur

TV girls tack on two more wins

With the type of halftime leads Turkey Valley's girls have had so far this season, the coaching staff can afford to experiment a bit.

Lions junior wrestling to run this Saturday

    Early entries must be postmarked today [Tuesday] for the 39th annual Lions Wrestling Tournament to be held this Saturday, Dec. 10.

Chickasaws can’t solve the 4A riddle

The margin was worse, but Chad Sweitzer saw at least some progress Thursday night when his New Hampton boys basketball team fell to 0-2 with a 79-46 loss to Mason City.  The loss came two nights after the Chickasaws dropped their season opener by

Trojans rally past Central, fall to Vikes

The term free throw is a bit of a misnomer, as they're not free and, in fact, at times the shots are very hard to sink.  Although Turkey Valley's boys won their first game of the season, they did so with a paltry 13 percent at the line,

Chickasaws make statement at Independence

Yeah, New Hampton is pretty good at wrestling.  Just ask the other 24 teams that took part in the inaugural Independence Invitational Friday and Saturday.  Yet, Chickasaw coach Nick Hemann, as happy as he was with winning a team title, knows winni

‘D’ keys Chickasaws’ NEIC win

Anyone who watches Isabel Leichtman knows how aggressive she is on offense.

Numbers are low as Trojans open season

The stories for the Turkey Valley wrestlers may be a bit on the short side this season.  There are seven out for the sport, but a couple that are new to the sport didn’t wrestle in the South Hardin quadrangular Tuesday as the Trojans started compe

Chickasaws endure rough season opener

Chad Sweitzer stood in the hallway at New Hampton High School and shook his head.  He knows one game does not make a season — especially when it comes against a Class 4A school with a Division I recruit — but it didn’t take a rocket scientist to r

Turkey Valley gets off to quick start on the court

    The margin of victory in the Turkey Valley girls’ 81-31 season-opening win over West Central probably wasn’t a big surprise, last year the Lady Trojans played the Blue Devils twice and won by 45-and 49-point margins.    Turkey Valley’s boys fi

Chickasaws take home 20-point win over TigerHawks

    Patience paid off for New Hampton's girls basketball team in their second win in as many games Monday, 57-37 at North Fayette Valley.    Even though the Chickasaw girls outscored their TigerHawk hosts in every quarter of the game, it wasn

Dominating debut

The final scores were dazzling — downright dominant to be honest — but that wasn’t what impressed New Hampton wrestling coach Nick Hemann the most Tuesday night.  “I was happy with the effort, and I really loved the fight,” Hemann said after his t

Back in the lineup

Kyle Smith’s gregarious personality came through loud and clear during the phone interview last week.  Granted, the former New Hampton High School basketball star has a lot to be thankful for as he has helped the Central College basketball team ge

Future wrestling stars to compete in Lions Junior Wrestling Tournament

In 2004, there were 10 pictures of the New Hampton Lions Junior Wrestling Tournament featured in the Tribune.  Turkey Valley alum Mark Meirick got together with New Hampton wrestling coach Tom Fye last year and looked over the photos.  “We determi

Trio of Trojans named to all-state teams

Just after Turkey Valley’s brilliant football season ended, Trojan coach Mark Scott talked about his seniors.  “They’ve worked hard, and they’ve been good leaders,” he said.

New Hampton girls open with decisive victory

It might be stating the obvious, but Chickasaw head basketball coach Matt Schult was very happy with his team’s defensive effort Monday night at Nashua-Plainfield.    Especially since it was the first outing of the season, the 32-5 halftime lead t
