New Hampton’s Tristan Sweitzer looks to split two Charles City defenders during Tuesday night’s Northeast Iowa Conference game.
It wasn’t the Northeast Iowa Conference win the New Hampton boys basketball team desperately craved, but maybe it was the performance that can kickstart the Chickasaws in conference play. “You know, when we got down to Mason City, we didn’t come back,” senior Tristan Sweitzer said after Charles...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Jennah Carpenter comes up with a steal during a game against Mason City Newman earlier this month.
Not only did the Nashua-Plainfield girls embark on one of the more hectic portions of its schedule last weekend, it did so against two outstanding teams. The Huskies started a four-game, seven-day stretch with a 71-23 loss to Class 3A third-ranked Osage on Friday and then fell to Class 1A’s eight-...
Sam Fundermann celebrates a late pin at the Nashua-Plainfield Invitational that was held on Dec. 8.
Don’t get Al Frost wrong, the veteran Nashua-Plainfield coach likes the path his team is traveling. “We’re definitely improving,” he said after the Huskies went 2-1 at a triangular in Sumner last Tuesday and then finished third in the seventh-place bracket at the Battle of Waterloo over the weekend...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Luke Cerwinske comes up with a steal during a game played against Mason City Newman earlier this month.
The Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball team showed its coach just as much in a loss last week as they did in a 31-point victory. The Huskies dropped a 50-38 Top of Iowa East Division game to Osage on Friday in a game that was much closer than the final score indicated and then turned around Saturday...
New Hampton’s Nolan Howard pushes the ball up court during Friday night’s game against Decorah.
Austin Flugum came right out and said it; he needed a game like Saturday. So did the rest of his New Hampton teammates. A day after dropping their second straight Northeast Iowa Conference game, the Chickasaws rebounded with a 54-33 victory over Schaeffer Academy in the annual Border Battle that...
Shown eying the basket against MFL, Turkey Valley’s Simon Schmitt brought down seven rebounds in the Trojan win over Lyle-Pacelli.
Turkey Valley’s girls have had close games before. Half of the eight games for the Lady Trojans this season have been decided by seven points or less. The boys, on the other hand, hadn’t had a game closer than 13 points. But both had one in the Border Battle Saturday as both teams played the...
New Hampton’s Hope McDonald puts up a shot during a Border Battle game played Saturday morning against Schaeffer Academy.
At the half, New Hampton’s girls were up by 14 Friday night against Decorah and the next afternoon — as the Chickasaw girls were taking on Schaeffer Academy in Decorah’s “Border Battle” — they were, again, up by 14 at the half. Both ended with big Chickasaw wins as New Hampton’s defense allowed...
New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s Max Babcock turns Lisbon’s Gage Mccoy during a meet against Lake Mills on Saturday at the Battle of Waterloo.
Let’s put it this way, New Hampton/Turkey Valley’s wrestlers weren’t exactly enamored last week when the Battle of Waterloo brackets came out. There were the Chickasaws, the two-time defending Class 2A state dual-meet champions and unbeaten in duals this season, seeded fifth in the Friday morning “...
Shown on her way to a basket after a steal against MFL, Kara Reicks provided a spark off the bench in a very close game at Kee High, Lansing Tuesday.
With four senior starters, Kee High may have had the upper hand this time around, but not by much.  When Turkey Valley coach Carla Nymeyer said her team lost on a last-second shot, she was serious. There was one second remaining on the clock when Lansing Kee got off a shot that won Tuesday night’s...
New Hampton’s Tristan Sweitzer drives to the basket during the second half of Tuesday night’s game against Waverly-Shell Rock.
Ryan Rausch may be less than a month into his boys basketball head coaching career, but he’s been around the sport  long enough to know that shooting 26.2 percent from the floor just isn’t going to cut it. New Hampton went ice cold Tuesday night, and the result was a 60-29 loss to Waverly-Shell...
