New Hampton senior Tristan Sweitzer drives to the basket during a game played against Oelwein.
After a magical postseason run by the Chickasaws, their season has finally come to an end after losing in the substate game to South Hamilton.  It also concludes the career of standout basketball player Tristan Sweitzer.  The senior was announced as a first team Northeast Iowa all-conference...
Tristan Sweitzer beats his defender and drives into the lane during Wednesday night’s Class 2A district basketball game.
Nolan Howard didn’t want his basketball career to end Wednesday night, and his sentiment had plenty of company among his classmates and fellow Chickasaws. “I tried not to think about it, but yeah, this could be the last time I ever get to play high school basketball crossed my mind,” Howard said, “...
New Hampton was on the wrong end of a 42-33 score with three minutes left in the third quarter of its game with Waukon Friday night. “Basically, you have two directions you can go,” New Hampton coach Ryan Rausch said. “We could rush things and be down 18 or we could stay patient, double down on...
New Hampton senior Nolan Howard drives to the basket during the first half of Monday’s game against Crestwood.
It was a tale of two halves — one good, even very good at times; one horrendous — for New Hampton boys basketball Monday night. Unfortunately, it was the bad half that carried the night as Crestwood outscored the Chickasaws 45-14 over the final 16 minutes of the game to roll to a 72-42 win and...
New Hampton’s Austin Flugum spots up from 3-point range early in Friday’s game against Oelwein.
The start was good … and that was about it for the New Hampton boys basketball team Friday night. The Chickasaws jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the game’s first three minutes, and then the proverbial roof caved in as Oelwein used a 33-8 run over the next nine minutes to blow open the Northeast Iowa...
New Hampton’s Dillon Roberson and Waverly-Shell Rock’s Hogan Hansen chase after a loose ball during the second half of Saturday night’s game.
New Hampton basketball coach Ryan Rausch thinks the growth of his team this season could be seen crystal clear on Friday night in Decorah.

New Hampton senior Tanner Lane beats a double team with a pass to an open teammate in a game played earlier this season.
It’s a simple fact when it comes to high school basketball games; when a team shoots better than 60 percent from the floor, it’s going to win … and usually by a large margin. New Hampton provided the proof on Monday night as the red-hot Chickasaws, who hit 62.6 percent of their field goal attempts...
New Hampton’s Dillon Roberson puts up a shot in the first quarter of Tuesday’s game at Crestwood.
They’re called quarters for a reason, mainly because their are four of them in a basketball game. And New Hampton’s boys basketball team learned that lesson the hard way as one bad quarter cost the Chickasaws dearly in a 69-54 loss to Northeast Iowa Conference rival Crestwood. “When we put four...
When Jared Nicolaisen wrapped up his freshman season of college basketball at Luther College in February 2016, his career point total stood at 87. Now, he’s a 1,000-point scorer for the Norse as he reached the milestone in an excruciating 83-81 loss to Central on Saturday evening. “I probably...
New Hampton freshman Drake Wemark gets loose under the basket and scores on an inside shot during the fourth quarter of Friday’s game at Oelwein.
The program says Drake Wemark is a freshman; his play on the court begs to differ. And the latest proof of his emergence came Friday night as he scored 21 points, including 13 in the fourth quarter, to help lead the Chickasaws to a 63-58 victory over Oelwein. “It has been a big jump,” Wemark said...
