New Hampton girls basketball

Defense by Kaylee Eggerichs and Maddi Moorman forces a Crestwood turnover in a defensive battle against the Cadets Wednesday.
Defensively, New Hampton did exactly what they were supposed to do Wednesday night in the second round of regional action. In a season where the defense has excelled, the Chickasaws outdid themselves against Crestwood.  But  it didn’t lead to a win. “Our defense, that’s not why we lost this game,”...
New Hampton girls basketball coach Chad Pemble and his three senior players — (from left) Maddi Moorman, Paige Wisner and Lauren Frerichs — enjoy a light moment before the Senior Parents Night program on Saturday night.
Lauren Frerichs didn’t hesitate at all when asked what she liked more — making a good pass or hitting a big shot? “Pass, without a doubt,” the New Hampton senior said after playing her final home basketball game Saturday night. “That’s kind of what we do as a team. We take a lot of pride in getting...
Coach Chad Pemble didn’t think his girls were intimidated by Crestwood’s 6-foot-3 junior Sharon Goodman, who has already committed to attend and play basketball at the University of Iowa. But the Chickasaw girls were smart enough to know that they didn’t want the Cadet — not only the conference’s...
New Hampton’s Kaylee Eggerichs gets an open shot during Thursday’s game against Waverly-Shell Rock.
If New Hampton girls basketball coach Chad Pemble has learned anything about his team the past 2 1/2 months, it is that this group of Chickasaws simply don’t quit. They showed that resiliency Thursday night in a 47-34 loss to Class 4A fifth-ranked Waverly-Shell Rock and they showed it again Friday...
New Hampton’s Alexa Wemark finds an open lane during the Chickasaws’ 52-24 Northeast Iowa Conference win over Decorah Friday evening.
Playing last year on New Hampton’s ninth-grade team, Hope McDonald made a big transition this year, skipping the junior varsity squad altogether and going right to playing varsity. And as a starter, from game one. “Those first games I was a little nervous,” said the sophomore, “especially that...
New Hampton’s Maddi Moorman puts up a shot in the first quarter of Saturday night’s game against Cedar Falls.
Forget the final margin, New Hampton girls basketball coach Chad Pemble had every reason to be proud of his Chickasaws Saturday night. Yes, Cedar Falls came away with a 66-50 non-conference victory, but New Hampton gave the Class 5A sixth-ranked Tigers fits, especially in the first half. “I loved...
New Hampton’s Kaylee Eggerichs drives to the lane when the Chickasaws hosted Waukon earlier this season.
Although New Hampton held Waukon below its scoring average of 50 points per game Friday, that’s not as good as it sounds. First of all, the Indians also held the Chickasaws nearly 20 points below their average of 48 points per game and second, when Waukon had their lead, they went into a stall. “...
New Hampton’s Lauren Frerichs gets to the basket for a layup during the Chickasaws’ Northeast Iowa Conference victory over Charles City Tuesday night.
Among the areas coach Chad Pemble said his team did well in during a Tuesday night 56-26 win over Charles City was defense and sharing the ball. Lauren Frerichs had a big hand in both. One of the senior leaders on the team, Frerichs worked her way into the starting line-up as a sophomore and has...
With a couple fouls early in the game, Maddi Moorman didn’t get her first points until the third quarter, but then she was on a mission, going 5-for-5 from the field for 10 points in the Chickasaw win over Oelwein.
As a group of Alexa Wemark’s family members filed out of the school lobby after New Hampton’s win over Oelwein Friday, a comment was made about her followers. “Yeah, I made a couple quick ones in the first quarter.” No, Alexa, not a lot of fouls, a lot of followers. But as long as you brought it up...
New Hampton senior Paige Wisner applies the pressure defense in Tuesday night’s game against Crestwood.
New Hampton senior Paige Wisner admitted to being exhausted after Tuesday night’s loss to Crestwood. Despite the best efforts from the New Hampton girls, the Cadets lived up to their No. 13 ranking as they opened up a second-quarter lead and defeated the Chickasaws 47-33. The game plan for the...
