A lot of that success came from the Hampton boys, who held on late for a 53-46 win over Meridian Friday night.

Reichardt breaks two Class B records

Aurora junior Cade Reichardt broke two school and Class B receiving records during Aurora’s 5-5 football season. Reichardt broke the Class B receptions record with his 74 grabs on the year, besting Aurora’s own Todd Honas in 2015 with 73. Reichardt also caught 14 touchdown passes, which tied Dan Carey of GICC in 1992. Reichardt finished the year with 1,043 reception yards, despite missing the opening round playoff game versus Omaha Skutt with an injury.

Dave’s Christmas wish list

There’s only a few days left before Christmas, but I’ve already finished my shopping list. It’s now time to hand out those special gifts to the good and bad sports personalities that we all know and love.
The best news of all? That darn pink bunny suit is long gone.
Anyway, I dug deep into my pockets, deep into my credit card, getting those oh-so-thoughtful presents for this year’s group. Here goes:
To Scott Frost, a year’s supply of 5-hour Energy drinks, and a baby monitor.
To the Cleveland Browns, one single, solitary win.
To Jim Harbaugh, a pair of jeans.
To Kelly Hunter, one more year of eligibility.
To LaVar Ball, a one-way ticket to the ‘South’ Pole.
To LiAngelo Ball, a one-way ticket back to China.
To the Kansas City Royals, Eric Hosmer’s signature on the dotted line. Mike Moustakas’, too.
To Tim Miles, a rematch with Creighton in the NCAA Tournament.

Lady Huskies can't complete rally against York

Despite a 17-7 run in the second half, the deficit was too much for the Aurora girls to overcome in a 28-21 loss to York at home. The loss is Aurora's first of the season. Megan Snyder led the way with 10 points, all of which coming in the third quarter. Aurora travels to Norris Tuesday for its next game.

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.
