New Hampton’s Dillon Roberson puts up a shot over Turkey Valley’s Simon Schmitt during Saturday night’s game.
New Hampton senior Tristan Sweitzer admits that he’s always gotten just as much of a kick as making a pretty pass as hitting a key 3-point shot, but what the Chickasaws have shown early in the season is that Sweitzer isn’t the only one loves gift-wrapping an assist on the basketball court. And the...
Hope McDonald drives to the basket in a game played earlier in the season.
Both New Hampton basketball coaches got what they wanted Thursday night, and it just wasn’t the wins the Chickasaws came home with from Waterloo Columbus, either. New Hampton’s girls gave coach Chad Pemble a great start, excellent inside defense and what has become a common occurrence, unselfish...
New Hampton’s Keagan John drives to the basket during a late-season victory over Crestwood.

Lisa and Kevin Flick accompany their daughter Madison as the five Chickasaw seniors are honored before the New Hampton-Oelwein game Friday.
Isabel Leichtman is used to putting up big scoring numbers.  Earlier in the year against Oelwein, she finished with 26 points, and that figure ties a pair of Crestwood players for the high total of the season in the Northeast Iowa Conference. So while her 17 points in a New Hampton 53-36 win over...
New Hampton senior Alex Schumacher comes up with a critical steal late in the overtime of Friday’s game against Oelwein.
No one needed to tell the members of the New Hampton boys basketball team about Oelwein’s “streak.” They knew. They knew that the Huskies haven’t won a Northeast Iowa Conference game since Jan. 31, 2012, and they knew that the streak stood at 73 games heading into Friday night’s tilt. “Everyone...
