Huskies claim Central Conference title

Aurora’s boys cross country team ran through the wet and cold and out of the shadows Thursday, winning a conference title in what coach Tony Sigler called an overdue statement race.

It’s time for beloved Huskers to clean up their act

My 3-year-old grandson Briggs gets on my case when I use the word ‘stupid.’ That word isn’t allowed in his house, but it was certainly thrown around quite a bit in Scott Frost’s post-game press conference Saturday night following a school-record eighth consecutive loss, this one to the Purdue Boilermakers.
The 42-28 setback was yet another punch to the gut, one that the Husker head man seemed to take exceptionally hard given the fact that as he arrived at the podium he didn’t say a word, but merely looked down as if still soaking in all of what just happened.
Longtime Omaha TV journalist Dave Weber finally broke the ice with a question, which maybe was more like a statement, in offering up that at times his team plays good enough to win. After initially agreeing, Frost eventually went another direction, noting stupid mistakes and stupid penalties is why his team hasn’t won this season.

Aurora linksters set new school records

Friday was a record-setting day for the Lady Huskies.
Danica Badura carded a four under par score of 70 to set a new personal best, while the Aurora girls combined to win the conference title with a school record 354.
"It was a good day," said an excited coach Rick Bell after watching his team compete in Seward on a wet, cool day for golf.
Badura was a picture of consistency, erasing one early bogey with five birdies to win medalist honors by 14 strokes. The junior shot 36 on the front side, then went even lower with a three under 34, which set a school record for nine holes. Badura was averaging just over 74 strokes per round for the season coming into Friday, but had her sights set on beating her own personal best of 71, set last year on the same Seward course.
