Kingdom Sports strives to connect faith, athletics

Sunday’s football clinic in Aurora had a different message than most, focusing more on the mental aspect of sports than techniques involved with playing the game.
Assistant coach Ron Brown and several members of the Nebraska Cornhusker team led local youth through some of the Huskers’ drills, though the emphasis this day was on how to let faith be a foundation for life, both on and off the field.
To read more about Brown's visit, please see this week's print or e-edition.

Griffith breaks Aurora school record

Aurora senior Riley Griffith was all smiles following the Central Conference meet at Columbus Lakeview Saturday, winning the shot put and snapping a 29-year school record in the process. 

Griffith tossed a 45-02 that not only earned her a conference gold medal, but bested Dawn Arent's mark of 44-07.50, a record that was set in 1990. Before Saturday, Griffith sat third in Aurora's all-time list. The senior also finished third in the discus. 

Also winning at the Central Conference meet was Kyla Carlson in the 400, doing so in a time of 60.57. 

Unfortunately for the Aurora girls, they came up just short in the team race, losing by one point to Grand Island Northwest to finish as Central Conference runners-up. 

The Huskies will compete at the B-5 district meet in Lexington Thursday.

Huskies stay alive in B-6 subdistrict

The Aurora boys soccer team exacted revenge on a York team that defeated them earlier in the year while keeping its season alive Tuesday night in the B-6 subdistrict semifinals played at Doane University in Crete. 

The Huskies, like they have in all five of its victories this season, pitched a shut out against the Dukes with a 3-0 win to end York's season and earn a date in the B-6 subdistrict finals. 

Aurora took a 1-0 lead in the first half with a Zac Mohr goal before the Huskies added two more scores off corner kicks in the second half with goals from Titan Collazo and Dominic Foged. 

The stage is set for the B-6 subdistrict finals Thursday night with top-seeded Crete, who won its match against Seward 4-0. That match begins at 7 p.m. Thursday night at Doane.

Kinsey signs with UNO

Aurora senior Tristian Kinsey made her college decision official Monday, signing a letter of intent to continue her academic and track and field career at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. 

Kinsey has been a staple for the Lady Huskies in the hurdle events since coming into high school. As a junior Kinsey was a runner-up in the 100 high hurdles, running in 15.28, just .02 off the winning time. Kinsey was also part of the 2017 Lady Husky team championship as a sophomore while as a freshman, she finished 6th in the 100 after qualifying in both the 100 and 300. 

As of now, Kinsey holds the second best mark in Aurora's all-time 100 hurdles list at 15.28, trailing Taylor Thiele in 2014 clocking in at 15.05. She sits fifth all time in the 300 at 47.28.

Nachtigal named CNTC girls outstanding athlete

Aurora's Maya Nachtigal sure got her steps in Tuesday. 

The Lady Husky senior was a winner in the 1600, 3200 and ran on the winning 3200 relay team at the Central Nebraska Track Championships held at Grand Island Northwest in a meet that featured the best athletes from all schools -- regardless of class -- in central Nebraska. 

Nachtigal won both the mile and two mile races in come-from-behind fashion, winning from third in the final lap in the mile while taking the lead to begin the last lap in the two mile. 

The 1600 featured an exciting finish between two of Hamilton County's best as Nachtigal and Giltner senior Brooke Wilson were stride for stride coming down the stretch. Nachtigal edged Wilson by .24 seconds at the stripe.
