Libby Fisher and her fellow Nashua-Plainfield basketball players will get a chance to play plenty of hoops in the next couple of weeks as Old Man Winter has created a hectic schedule.
Making “the call” to postpone a basketball game or a wrestling meet is a little more complicated than people think.  Just ask Josh Smith, the Nashua-Plainfield activities director who also coaches the Huskies’ girls basketball team.  If the event is a road one, Smith’s first call is to Nashua-...
Maybe it wasn’t a win, but Nashua-Plainfield’s 54-36 loss to Northwood-Kensett Friday sure beat the alternative.  It beat the heck out of the Huskies’ performance the night before when Osage rolled to a 73-15 victory over Nashua-Plainfield.  “I was really happy with the way we played for the most...
Nashua-Plainfield’s Luke Cerwinske was one of four Huskies who scored nine or more points in a win over Northwood-Kensett last week.
Justin Eiffler’s message between the first and second quarter of last Friday’s game with Northwood-Kensett came down to one word, defense.  “I told them neither team had played a lick of defense,” the Nashua-Plainfield boys basketball coach said, “and the first team that payed any attention on the...
Nashua-Plainfield freshman Evan Kalainoff puts the finishing touches on a pin of St. Ansgar’s Shaw Hulshizer in a quadrangular the Huskies played host to last Thursday.
Al Frost has coached Plainfield and Nashua-Plainfield teams to 381 dual victories during his long career.  But he experienced a first last Thursday night when his Huskies won a dual meet without winning a match on the mat.  “That, I’m 99.999 percent sure, has never happened before,” Frost said of...
In the stretch of seven matches last week, Cale Reicks was 6-1 to bring his season record to 22-2.
Turkey Valley's wrestlers played catch-up last week.  After a long layoff in December, one in which they didn't wrestle at all after the South Winn invite Dec. 10, the Trojans wrestled seven meets last week, against Starmont and Edgewood-Colesburg Thursday; Decorah, St. Charles, Minn., Waukon,...
New Hampton’s Keaton Geerts battles Fort Dodge’s Triston Lara in a battle of top-ranked wrestlers.
Keaton Geerts knew he had to be more aggressive in “the rematch.”  He was, he won and the victory — along with a late New Hampton run — propelled the Chickasaws to the team title at the J-Hawk Invitational in Cedar Rapids Saturday.  In a tournament, though, that featured scores of matches, the one...
Shelby Reicks led the Trojans in all categories when Turkey Valley travelled to Waterloo West Saturday.
The Class 1A rankings stayed exactly the same at the top of Class 1A last week, even though Springville lost to North Linn and Turkey Valley lost to Springville.  Springville is still ranked No. 1 and the Lady Trojans are still No. 2.  “I'm not surprised,” said Trojan co-coach Dan Stepan. “Not one...
New Hampton’s Lauren Frerichs, shown here driving to the basket in a game against Clear Lake, scored a season-high 11 points in the Chickasaws’ win over Waukon on Friday.
  Down by double digits about halfway through the third quarter, New Hampton put the pressure on Waukon Friday night, caused some turnovers and hit some key 3-point shots to battle back.  “It was a lot of fun to watch, we played with a lot of confidence and toughness,” began coach Matt Schult. “To...
New Hampton’s Zach Heying drives to the basket in the second half of Friday’s game against Waukon.
Jake Zwanziger didn’t hesitate Friday night what the difference has been for him since Christmas.  “I’m not forcing it like I did and I’m kind of just letting the game come to me,” the New Hampton junior said after he scored a game-high 17 points in the Chickasaws’ 81-46 victory over Waukon. “I...
New Hampton junior Michael Millage  pins Dike-New Hartford’s Reece Roberts in his first varsity meet as a Chickasaw during the Battle of the West that was held Thursday night in UNI’s West Gym.
The event was billed as the “Best of the West,” and when it was over, there was little arguing about which team was the finest.  New Hampton rolled to three dual wins over ranked opponents — beating Dike-New Hartford 63-18, pulling away from Denver-Tripoli 49-21 and routing Wapsie Valley 59-9 — at...
