Sealing the deal and slamming the door shut. That’s exactly what the Nashua-Plainfield volleyball team did last Thursday night in its season opener versus the Rockford Warriors. After a bumpy first game, the Huskies and new head coach Mindy Foelske cruised to a commanding sweep on the road – 25-19...
As the dark clouds rained down and Mother Nature wreaked havoc on northeast Iowa Friday night – the flood gates opened. For a brief moment – so did the Turkey Valley Trojans. The sky was electric in the season opener against Edgewood-Colesburg and so was the Trojan offense. While the 8-man prep...
It was one of the strangest season openers Scott Frerichs has experienced in his 29 years as the head football coach at New Hampton; after all, the Chickasaws’ game with MFL-Mar-Mac started on Friday night at 7 and didn’t end until a little after 6 Saturday evening. But in the end, despite the...
Mason City hasn’t had a winning volleyball season in decades. So a marquee matchup this was not for Jess Geerts and her New Hampton Chickasaws in their de facto season opener on Thursday night against the Mohawks. Regardless of facing an overmatched opponent – there was no lack of energy or...
New Hampton’s football opener with MFL-Mar-Mac this evening (Friday) is still on, but the “curtain raiser” isn’t. The freshman game that was to start at 5 p.m. has been canceled because of wet field conditions, but the Chickasaws and the Bulldogs will play the varsity game at 7 p.m., 30 minutes...
Wrap up. In 8-man football – tackling is at a premium. With less players on the field, more wide open space and a quicker flow to the pigskin game than its 11-man counterpart – stopping someone from scoring on a shorter field is of utmost importance. That will be a focus this year for head coach...
The wait is over for Dylan Usher and his New Hampton Chickasaws. Usher – who qualified for the state cross country meet last year for the first time as a junior in 2020 – is ready to break from the starting line this fall and prove his worth once again. The same can be said for the rest of the...
Given her choice, Sarah Bakula would love to have her Turkey Valley cross country teams have enough runners to appear in the team standings. “It is what it is unfortunately,” she said, “and it’s not like I can just go grab Joe Blow off the side of the road and say, ‘You’re running for me.’ But we...
The start of the fall sports season is being delayed because of a healthy dose of summer heat. New Hampton was set to open the 2021 volleyball season with a triangular at Nashua-Plainfield today (Tuesday), but Nashua-Plainfield is dismissing two hours early because of the heat that is building in...
Maybe the best way to put it is this: New Hampton is an unproven lot when it comes to varsity football heading into the 2021 season. The Chickasaws are young. The Chickasaws are surely lacking when it comes to experience “We believe we have some really good football players,” New Hampton coach...
