Nashua-Plainfield’s Sam Fundermann (88) tackles a West Fork ball carrier as the Huskies’ Levi Lindner (22) comes up to help provide support.
Injuries plus sickness plus too many mistakes is not a good football equation, and it all adds up to an 0-4 start for Nashua-Plainfield. The latest loss came last Friday as West Fork used a quick start — the Warhawks scored on their first three drives of the game — to roll to a 34-0 non-district...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Abbi Hauser goes up for a block attempt while teammates Libby Fisher and Brianna Bienemann keep a close eye on the ball during a match played earlier this season.
Nashua-Plainfield got so many things out of its home tournament Saturday that coach Amber McCall didn’t know where to begin. The Huskies got their first win of the season. They put together their first winning streak of the season. And they got an opportunity to play a “deciding” set, not once, but...
Turkey Valley’s Katlyn Baumler goes up to make a block in a match played earlier this season.
Turkey Valley started their rally against South Winn a little too late Thursday. After dropping 25-13 and 25-12 sets, the Trojans were breathing down the necks of the Warriors in the third set, but also lost that one, 25-22. “We had a rough night in Calmar,” coach Ethan Adams said. “We made too...
Turkey Valley’s Keegan Balk (5) and Eli Nymeyer team up for a tackle in the Trojans’ district win over Springville Friday night.
as soaked with sweat after Turkey Valley’s 54-7 win over Springville Friday night, he said the heat — the temperature was around 80 at the start of the game, and of course, there’s the humidity — didn’t bother him. “No, you get that adrenaline pumping and you don’t even notice it,” he said after...
Sooner or later, the folks at the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union had to take notice of the New Hampton volleyball team; after all, the Chickasaws are 17-0, have claimed two tournament titles and won 40 of the 44 sets they have played. And the IGHSAU finally gave New  Hampton its due as the...
Austin Flugum fights for extra yardage after making a catch in the Chickasaws game against Waverly-Shell Rock Friday night.
The New Hampton football team gathered around their coach Friday night, and the disappointment was palatable. The Chickasaws had just dominated the second half of its game with Waverly-Shell Rock, only to give up a late 80-yard touchdown run and end up on the wrong end of a 13-6 score. Yet — maybe...
Turkey Valley Lucas Scheidel was the only Trojan in the varsity boys’ race at Tuesday’s Starmont Invitational.
While Turkey Valley’s cross country team sent one more runner onto the course when the Trojans competed at Starmont Tuesday, some of the athletes were running at less-than-optimal health. Still, a number of times came down in the meet that featured 1A through 3A runners. Overall, there were 133...
Riley Shatek looks to finish strong at the Osage Invitational Tuesday.
The good news is the folks who run the Osage Invitational cross country meet removed the most dangerous part of the course — a rocky hill that had “ankle sprain” written all over it. The bad news is they didn’t measure the new course correctly, so as runners made their way into the finish-line...
New Hampton’s Lauren Frerichs and Sydney Laures go up for a block in Tuesday’s match against Northeast Iowa Conference-rival Crestwood.

Nashua-Plainfield senior Brianna Bienemann bumps the ball during a match played earlier this season.
Nashua-Plainfield’s volleyball team knew the challenge presented by its first Saturday tournament was going to be, in a word, brutal.
