Turkey Valley boys basketball

New Hampton’s Conner Gorman and Conner Rochford celebrate the Chickasaws’ extra-inning victory over Charles City.
With this being my last week at the New Hampton Tribune, I thought it would be a cool idea to list my top five favorite sporting events that I covered over the past 14 months. Note that these are my opinions, and I am biased because I like some sports more than others.  With that being said, I am...
Keegan Balk was honored by Upper Iowa Conference coaches by being named to the all-conference first team.
A record-breaking season, one in which Turkey Valley’s boys basketball team won a school-record 22 games, has netted the Trojans plenty of postseason recognition. And yet, for all the individual accolades, what coach Chris Sullivan will remember the most is that his team was … well, it was a team...
Turkey Valley’s Garrett Kurtenbach puts up a 3-point shot in the district semifinal victory over South Winneshiek on Tuesday.
During the regular season, Turkey Valley won each of two the meetings against South Winneshiek fairly easily, defeating them by an average of 19 points. It looked as though the Trojans were going to cruise to another comfortable victory over them in the district semifinal, as they built up an 8-0...
Members of the Turkey Valley boys basketball team, along with their fans, watch a long shot on its way to the basket while defeating Janesville 42-37 in the district final.
Free throw shooting down the stretch can often times be the difference in winning and losing the ball game, and it was for the Turkey Valley boys basketball team in the district final playoff game on Thursday night held at New Hampton High School. The Trojans calmly nailed their free throws in the...
Turkey Valley’s Eli Nymeyer and Kannon Leuenberger try to trap Lake Mills’ Chett Helming, who scored 39 points in the substate game held at Charles City High School.
With five minutes to play in the second quarter, Lake Mills’ Chett Helming had outscored Turkey Valley by himself 21-17. The hot start by Helming helped Lake Mills jump out to a 32-17 advantage, and the Trojans were never able to recover, falling in the substate game held at Charles City on...
Turkey Valley's Eli Nymeyer ties up Janesville's Joey Carlson during the district final game held at New Hampton High School on Thursday evening.
It was an absolute war until the very end, but the Turkey Valley boys basketball team gutted out a close back-and-forth victory over Janesville - who entered with a record of 19-4 - 42-37 in the district final game on Thursday night at New Hampton High School. The Trojans held just a one-point...
Turkey Valley’s Seth Huinker starts to dribble the basketball after picking up a steal in the Trojans’ victory over Central Elkader in the district quarterfinals.
Turkey Valley’s boys started their postseason game against Central rather slowly, but it wasn’t the first time it took awhile for the scoring machines to get rolling. Once they did, the Trojans breezed to a 68-34 win. It had been eight days since the Trojans played their final regular-season game,...
Turkey Valley’s Elliott Dietzenbach threads his way through the defense during the UIC-title clinching win last week.
The next best thing to an outright conference title is a share of the crown. And for the fourth straight year, Turkey Valley’s boys have earned either a share of the title or the full prize. After a Monday 71-39 non-conference win over Don Bosco, the Trojans needed to win the next night against...
Turkey Valley’s Kannon Leuenberger scored 10 points in their victory over South Winneshiek at home on Tuesday night.
The Turkey Valley boys basketball team entered last week with a trio of Upper Iowa Conference games on the horizon. In order to keep their hopes at a fourth consecutive conference championship alive, they likely needed to win all three.  Not only were they able to achieve this, but they made it...
Ethan Leibold, shown shooting in a recent home game, knocked down 17 points with 14 rebounds in Turkey Valley’s win over Postville Friday.
With wins over Postville Friday and Riceville Saturday, the Turkey Valley boys — at 14-3 — have the best overall record in the Upper Iowa conference.  But in conference games alone, there’s a bottleneck for first place, with three teams at two losses each. That will change today (Tuesday), as the...
