New Hampton freshman Emily Jackson knows if there’s ever a need for a “computer refresher,” she could make millions. “I was so nervous. I was on the computer reloading the page every two seconds,” she said and then added with a laugh, “and I’m pretty good at it.” And when the Iowa Girls High School...
Turkey Valley’s Elliott Dietzenbach anchored three Trojan relays to state meet berths during Friday night’s Class 1A state qualifying meet.
Relays were the story of the evening for the Turkey Valley boys’ track team on Friday. The 4x800, distance medley, and 4x400 all performed well enough at the district track meet in Edgewood to qualify for the state competition this week. The 4x800 quartet of Seth Huinker, Eli Nymeyer, Kalvin...
Former New Hampton High star Cole McDonald delivers a pitch to the plate during an Iowa baseball game earlier this season.
Sometimes, fathers do know best; just ask Cole McDonald. After a mediocre start to the season for the University of Iowa baseball team, the Hawkeyes have flipped the switch since an 0-3 start in Big Ten play and now are in the mix for a potential spot in the NCAA tournament. And one of the many...
New Hampton’s Dylan Usher sprints to the finish line as he anchors the 4x800 relay during Friday’s Class 2A state qualifying meet.
Nolan Usher sat on the infield at Garner-Hayfield-Ventura High School Friday night and tried to muster up a smile.

A bout of almost winter-like weather — at least when it comes to temperatures and wind — has led to the postponement of a number of state qualifying track and field meets. New Hampton will now compete in the 2A meet at Garner-Hayfield on Friday, and the area's two Class 1A schools — Nashua-...

Hickory Grove Golf Course in Oelwein has not always been the kindest to the New Hampton boys golf team, so coach Bill Glenn was just happy to get out of Oelwein with a win last Thursday. “It’s been a difficult course for us,” Glenn said. “The greens are unlike any others we see. They’re big, they’...
