 Parents of seven year-old pee wee baseball players brawling in the Mile High City over an umpire’s call. A 13-year old umpire.

LaVar Ball seemingly making an inappropriate response to a female host on ESPN.
Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield trash-talking University of Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger on a radio show in Oklahoma.
It’s simply amazing these kind of stories seen and heard these days. Is this kind of behavior becoming a trend, or are these just random acts of immaturity, foolishness and yes, violence?
I’m seriously afraid that the world of sports is beginning to mirror Washington D.C.’s bickering and dividedness. What happens in Washington isn’t staying in Washington, at least in my opinion. And it starts at the top.
Doesn’t it seem like it’s getting worse? Are lawyers the only real winners here?

Badura wins 52nd Nebraska Match Play

Article Image Alt Text

Many golfers dream of it, but fewer get the chance to live it out. Caleb Badura had that chance Friday. 

The Aurora native and Northwestern College sophomore-to-be golfer made it look easy on his way to the Nebraska men’s match play golf crown. 

Badura became the fourth player short of his 20th birthday to win the match play championship with a 9 and 7 win over Omaha's Dan Huston, who calls the Players Club Golf Course home. 

Badura held a 4 up lead through the 18-hole morning round and continued with fire in the afternoon, ballooning his lead to 7 up by winning the first three holes and eventually held a 9 up lead through 25 holes. The match ended when Huston conceded Badura’s birdie putt after hitting his fourth shot on the par-4 11th.

Badura goes for a sweep of the state tournaments at the 115th Nebraska Amateur from July 8-11 at the Country Club of Lincoln.

Nebraska proves again to be the volleyball state

Article Image Alt Text

Is there anything Mikaela Foecke can’t do?
From a tryout with Team USA Volleyball in April, to graduation from UNL in May, her wedding on June 1 with a honeymoon spent as the star attraction at Pinnacle Bank Arena, the former All-American now just needs to take a deep breath.
And while she shared center stage with former volleyball Husker greats Jordan Larson and Kelsey Robinson in matches against Korea, Germany and Brazil in what is the FIVB Volleyball Nations League, Mikaela, not surprisingly, was a fan favorite.
USA coach Karch Kiraly’s latest group of 14 players was more or less an experiment, the eventual goal being next summer’s Olympics in Japan. But here and now, the group that came to Lincoln featured an amazing nine players from the all powerful Big Ten Conference.
They certainly didn’t disappoint.
