Aurora’s hot shooting buries weekend slate

Aurora girls coach Phil Thramer doesn’t want his Lady Huskies to become too dependent on the three-point shot, but as long as it’s falling, Aurora is scary dangerous.
The shot behind the arc was a huge asset for the Lady Huskies Friday night against Columbus Lakeview, where they went 6-10 in the first half and cruised to a 54-26 win.

Russell earns 100th career win

Just like he has for much of his high school career to date, High Plains’ Logan Russell impressed all over the weekend at the Nebraska Duals.
Despite meeting wrestlers in higher classes face to face, Russell not only finished the meet 8-0, but also picked up his 100th career win Friday.
The milestone match took place in the Storms’ fourth dual of the afternoon against O’Neill.

Huskies wear out Vikings, Bison

Through the first four games this season, the Aurora boys basketball team can be compared to a diesel engine. It takes a few minutes to warm up, but once it does, it’s ready to roll.
That was the case Friday as the Huskies started slow before turning up the pace later in the first half, eventually defeating Columbus Lakeview.

Broekemeier helps welcome Frost home

 I didn’t make it to Scott Frost’s introductory press conference a week ago Sunday.
I guess that was my loss.
I was, however, at Mike Riley’s press conference right after the Iowa debacle.
Boy oh boy have things changed.
In a little over one week’s time, the Nebraska football program began to have a heartbeat, an identity, a feeling of nostalgia.
It felt like the Huskers mattered once again. Out with the old and in with the new never sounded quite so good.
The 42-year old Frost not only reconnects Husker fans to the past, to when the Huskers were raising a few national championship trophies, but it also brought together an entire state that, truth be told, has been fractured ever since the firing of Frank Solich.
This new guy isn’t  so new and that’s what makes it so special.

Hot three-point shooting key for Lady Huskies

An open letter to Scott Frost

Dear Coach Frost,
First of all, let me be just one of the thousands of Nebraska folks to whole-heartedly welcome you back home to ‘The Good Life.’
I’m so excited you made the tough decision to leave the comfort and program you were building in UCF to come restore the Huskers back to what we once were.
We’ve been watching you from afar as we do a lot of our native sons once they leave the Husker program and we couldn’t be happier you’ve decided to come back.
I’ve got to say, though, that our beloved Nebraska football program just isn’t in the same state of mind since you helped win us a championship in 1997. I thought it would be a novel idea to catch you up on what we’ve been up to the last 20 years and what you can expect on the job.
We’re a broken fanbase that has been a punching bag for opponents for much of the new century.
