It’s not a win, but N-P girls do bounce back

Maybe it wasn’t a win, but Nashua-Plainfield’s 54-36 loss to Northwood-Kensett Friday sure beat the alternative.  It beat the heck out of the Huskies’ performance the night before when Osage rolled to a 73-15 victory over Nashua-Plainfield.  “I wa

N-P boys rebound from rout to beat Vikings

Justin Eiffler’s message between the first and second quarter of last Friday’s game with Northwood-Kensett came down to one word, defense.  “I told them neither team had played a lick of defense,” the Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball coach said,

Tough sledding

Al Frost has coached Plainfield and Nashua-Plainfield teams to 381 dual victories during his long career.  But he experienced a first last Thursday night when his Huskies won a dual meet without winning a match on the mat.  “That, I’m 99.999 perce

Turkey Valley wrestles seven meets last week

Turkey Valley's wrestlers played catch-up last week.  After a long layoff in December, one in which they didn't wrestle at all after the South Winn invite Dec.

Chickasaws hold off Fort Dodge for J-Hawk Invite title

Keaton Geerts knew he had to be more aggressive in “the rematch.”  He was, he won and the victory — along with a late New Hampton run — propelled the Chickasaws to the team title at the J-Hawk Invitational in Cedar Rapids Saturday.  In a tournamen

Late 3 lifts Waterloo West past Trojans

The Class 1A rankings stayed exactly the same at the top of Class 1A last week, even though Springville lost to North Linn and Turkey Valley lost to Springville.  Springville is still ranked No. 1 and the Lady Trojans are still No.

Chickasaw girls get back on track

  Down by double digits about halfway through the third quarter, New Hampton put the pressure on Waukon Friday night, caused some turnovers and hit some key 3-point shots to battle back.  “It was a lot of fun to watch, we played with a lot of conf

Chickasaws roll to win

Jake Zwanziger didn’t hesitate Friday night what the difference has been for him since Christmas.  “I’m not forcing it like I did and I’m kind of just letting the game come to me,” the New Hampton junior said after he scored a game-high 17 points

Winning the West

The event was billed as the “Best of the West,” and when it was over, there was little arguing about which team was the finest.  New Hampton rolled to three dual wins over ranked opponents — beating Dike-New Hartford 63-18, pulling away from Denve

Turkey Valley state champ in biggest battle yet

    The day Lawler’s Larry Bergmann stepped onto the podium to become Turkey Valley’s first-ever state champion wrestler was a day he’ll never forget.

Chickasaw girls play ‘nice host’ little too literally

If the first half would have lasted three minutes on Monday night, the New Hampton girls basketball team wouldn’t have been in bad shape.  Unfortunately, halves in high school basketball are 16 minutes, and a combination of too many New Hampton tu

Coming up short

The frustration in New Hampton boys basketball coach Chad Sweitzer’s voice came through loud and clear on Monday night.  His Chickasaws had just put up one heck of a fight against a Clear Lake team that began the season in the Class 2A state ranki

Huskies take one on chin at West Fork

It wasn’t exactly how Nashua-Plainfield coach Justin Eiffler and his Huskies wanted to start off 2017.  Then again, the opponent may have had something to do with it as West Fork rolled to a 59-27 victory over the Huskies last Friday night.  “West

Fast start is not quite enough for N-P girls

Maybe there are two lessons to be learned in Nashua-Plainfield’s girls basketball loss to West Fork last week.  First, one quarter does not make a game.  Second, though, is that the Huskies have the ability to play with even elite teams like the W

Slowly but surely

Nashua-Plainfield may not have the power teams it put on the wrestling mat in the 2000s and early part of this decade, but the young Huskies are definitely making progress.  Take last week, for example.  Nashua-Plainfield went 3-2 in duals over th

Two games in 18 hours for Trojans

    Just a freshman, Ethan Leibold didn't miss a shot when Turkey Valley played their “Border Battle” game Saturday morning.    That's not an exaggeration, he literally did not miss, going 10-for-10 to lead the Trojan boys as they defeat
