With Tripoli looming in the postseason, Turkey Valley ended their regular season last Thursday with a 3-0 loss to Central of Elkader to finish the 2018 campaign with a 4-21 record. The Trojan girls did have a 25-13 loss, but on either end of that was a close 25-21 loss. “I am pleased with their...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Chloe Matthews nips Mason City Newman’s Chloe Nelson at the finish line during Monday’s conference meet.
Any other year and Jenn Kalainoff would not have been happy with the fact that her Nashua-Plainfield cross country teams had to run the Top of Iowa Conference on Monday, just three days before it heads to Cedar Rapids for tonight’s [Thursday] Class 1A state qualifying meet. Then again, 2018 isn’t...
Kiersten Tenge puts down a kill in New Hampton’s straight-set victory over North Fayette Valley in a first-round Class 3A regional game Wednesday.
Kerigan Tenge pondered the question on which — a kill or an ace serve — gave her a bigger thrill when it comes to volleyball. “An ace is right up there, I’m not saying that,” the New Hampton senior said after New Hampton overcame a slow start and buried North Fayette Valley 25-10, 25-4, 25-7 in the...

The statistics for Easton Valley tells the story of Turkey Valley’s 60-34 Friday win over the River Hawks more so than the Trojan stats.

New Hampton ended in the same spot in the Northeast Iowa Conference tourney over the weekend as it finished during the regular season, but it took a circuitous route to get them there. With a 4-2 record, the Chickasaws tied Waukon for second in the tournament, but because New Hampton beat the...
New Hampton’s Dillon Roberson blocks Clear Lake’s Jorge Rivera during the first half of Friday’s game.
Say this for the New Hampton football team Friday night: It responded to the first punch Clear Lake delivered. But the Chickasaws didn’t have any answers for the rest.  A week after getting knocked out of playoff contention with a double-overtime loss to Crestwood, New Hampton endured a 42-7...
Jalyssa Blazek
When Turkey Valley coach Sarah Bakula saw where freshman Jalyssa Blazek was two-thirds through the Upper Iowa Conference race, Bakula couldn’t help but smile. “She got out with the leaders and she was in perfect control of her race,” Bakula said, “and I knew she was sitting — well, running...
