Nachtigal inks with Nebraska-Omaha

Article Image Alt Text

Aurora senior Maya Nachtigal had a last-minute change of heart and signed a letter of intent to continue her academic as well as cross country and track and field career at the University of Nebraska-Omaha Friday afternoon. 

Nachtigal wasn't planning on competing in athletics anywhere at the next level until further success her senior season on both the cross country course and the track helped change her mind that she wasn't ready to give the sports up. 

The Lady Husky senior was part of Aurora's back-to-back state championship seasons in cross country in 2016 and 2017 as well as its track title in 2017. 

Nachtigal finished 7th as a senior at state cross country alongside finishes of 8th as a junior and 15th as a sophomore.

Kingdom Sports strives to connect faith, athletics

Article Image Alt Text

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

Article Image Alt Text

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.

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.
