The Turkey Valley baseball team suffered a defeat in their lone contest last week, as Waukon claimed victory on their home field 10-0 in six innings on Wednesday. Elliott Dietzenbach started on the mound for the Trojans, giving up seven runs (four earned), eight hits, and striking out two. Kannon...
Turkey Valley’s Kaylie Klimesh fires a shot during a trapshooting meet held last month in Jackson Junction.
When the state trapshooting meet came to an end on Sunday, there was one Turkey Valley shooter who could call herself the best - Kaylie Klimesh.  Out of the 243 girls who competed at Cedar Falls Gun Club this past weekend, Klimesh tied for first with Ankeny Centennial’s Erin Neppl with a 196. This...
Turkey Valley’s Kara Reicks fires a throw to first base to record an out in the Trojans’ win over Central Elkader last Wednesday.
When the ball sailed over the fence in Turkey Valley’s second game against Central Elkader Wednesday, Shayla Kuennen didn’t realize it hit the scoreboard, then bounced back onto the field. “I just started running right away so I could get at least a double,” she said of her second home run of the...
New Hampton senior Natalie Hoey connects for a base hit during Friday night’s game against MFL-Mar-Mac.
After having just one home run all last year, senior Kayla Crooks has hit four in the past seven games and been red hot at the plate. She has been a big reason for New Hampton’s 11-4 start this year. “The first time I hit one I was like ‘Whoa, I don’t know where that came from.’ Then it just kept...
Cole McDonald fires a pitch to the plate during a University of Iowa baseball game this past spring.
This may sound strange, but Cole McDonald is adamant about it. He would not trade the challenges thrown at him for a proverbial million dollars, for those tough times — the Tommy John surgery in 2014 or the disastrous sophomore season at the University of Iowa in 2017 — made him into the pitcher he...
New Hampton senior Ryan Anderson gets ready to throw to first base and complete a double play in the opener of Friday’s doubleheader with Oelwein.
New Hampton has just lost its second straight game — the first time the Chickasaws had experienced a two-game losing streak in four years — Friday night when coach Cory McDonald laid down the proverbial gauntlet to his seniors. “We challenged the seniors after game one to lead, to put this team on...

We’re guessing a whole bunch of New Hampton-area residents have just become pretty big Houston Astros fans as the team drafted former Chickasaw and University of Iowa pitcher Cole McDonald in the 15th round of the Major League Baseball draft. McDonald, coming off a brilliant senior season, received...
New Hampton senior Regan Gebel embraces her coach, Eric Olson, after playing her last hole at the Class 2A state golf tournament on Wednesday.
Regan Gebel didn’t give a you-know-what about the forecast after the first day of the Class 2A state golf tournament. “After Tuesday, I looked at the forecast, saw the rain, and all I was thinking is I want to golf tomorrow,” said the lone senior varsity player on New Hampton’s outstanding girls...
Turkey Valley third baseman Kannon Leuenberger gets the tag in just a tad late as he tries to record an out in last week’s New Hampton Invitational.
The Turkey Valley baseball team’s struggles continued last week, as the Trojans were still unable to land their first victory of the season. They went 0-4 on the week, with losses to South Winneshiek (twice), Charles City, and New Hampton. Each game against the Warriors only lasted five innings, as...
