Turkey Valley boys basketball

Jason Herold drives against the Rockford defense Tuesday.
The good news for next year, should Turkey Valley’s boys meet up with Rockford again in the postseason, is that four of the five Warrior starters that were on the floor while defeating the Trojans  — along with two players that came off the bench — were seniors.  That doesn’t help the lone senior...
Turkey Valley's Kannon Leuenberger drives against Nashua-Plainfield's Isaac Chambers in the district opener for each team Friday.
As a freshman, Garrett Kurtenbach averages just over six points per game this season. He had six points in Turkey Valley’s opening win over Nashua-Plainfield, but one point in particular stood out. Turkey Valley led by as much as 10 points early in the final period, but the Huskies clawed their way...
Turkey Valley’s Ethan Leibold pulls down a rebound during a recent UIC game.
Turkey Valley needed certain things to happen to win their third straight Upper Iowa Conference title outright, and when South Winn beat North Fayette Valley Friday night by two points, that went a long way toward the goal.  But the TV boys knew they’d have to also win a make-up game on Saturday,...
Elliott Dietzenbach's defense helped the Trojans record a win over MFL.
Turkey Valley coach Chris Sullivan thought Monday’s game at MFL MarMac had a “district” feel to it. But it also was a key conference game, with the 64-59 Turkey Valley win setting up the Trojans for a top-two finish in the Upper Iowa Conference. MFL actually helped the Trojans in the UIC standings...
Turkey Valley’s Kannon Leuenberger provides the defensive pressure during the Trojans win over South Winneshiek Friday night.
When South Winn hit a 3-point shot with 28 seconds left in Friday’s game against the Trojans, the Warriors cut a Turkey Valley lead — which had been as much as eight points earlier in the quarter — to three points. When Eli Reicks was fouled and went to the line to shoot a pair of free throws,...
Eli Nymeyer, shown driving against South Winn in the final game of 2018, fired 12-for-15 from the field for a career high 25 points against West Central.
If Turkey Valley’s boys were going to have an off night, a non-conference game is a good time. After losing to Tripoli Thursday, the Trojans had a chance to get their confidence back the next night, which they did with a 61-30 win over West Central. After going up 19-7 at one point in the second...
Shown playing defense, Kalvin Langreck (1) and Garrett Kurtenbach came off the bench to spark Turkey Valley’s offense in a win over Jesup.
There could not have been a much bigger turnaround between the first and second quarters of Turkey Valley’s 46-23 win over Clayton Ridge Friday. After a sluggish first quarter ended with a 4-3 Turkey Valley lead, the Trojans outscored the Eagles 18-0 in the second period. The way his team played in...
Turkey Valley’s Ethan Leibold goes up strong to grab a rebound in a game against North Fayette Valley last week.
It’s as if Ethan Leibold has taken a liking to the number 33. Wearing the number 33, the Turkey Valley junior scored 33 points against Central Tuesday to lead his team to its second consecutive conference win. His best game last year came in the second week of December — he scored 33 that night as...
Lindsey Jackson pulls the ball away from North Fayette Valley’s Gina Gibson Tuesday.
Take the Turkey Valley girls basketball game against North Fayette Valley, reverse it, and you have the Trojan boys game against the TigerHawks. The Lady Trojans jumped out to a big lead in their conference opener, but the visitors clawed their way back, Turkey Valley escaped with a win, but it...
Ethan Leibold scored 26 points with 17 rebounds in the Trojan win over Postville.
Calling someone a beast isn’t generally a compliment, but that was Chris Sullivan’s intent when he gave the label to Ethan Leibold. Just a sophomore, Leibold set the bar pretty high when he set two career highs — 26 points and 17 rebounds —  in a 56-52 win over Postville Friday night. But it took a...
