Huskies place five in top nine finishers

Aurora coach Tony Sigler was hard pressed to dream up a better start for his Huskies at the GINW Invite Friday.
The Huskies placed five runners inside the top nine positions in an opening meet that featured a flat, open course at the GINW grounds.
“It doesn’t matter if there’s two or 100 schools,” Sigler noted. “When you put five in the top nine of a cross country race, you’re doing great.”

In Frost we trust

As kids, you always wanted to open one present on Christmas Eve before bedtime to get things kicked off on the right foot. The anticipation of Christmas as a child is matched by little, if anything.
Sunday morning, Husker Nation got to open up one present before the big day.
The Nebraska coaching staff passed out the depth chart to the media early Sunday before the sermons and prayers could be answered across the state.
Everyone from the sportwriters to the fans wanted to know who would be Scott Frost’s handpicked quarterback to open up the season.
Inside that early package opening was the name of 18-year-old true freshman Adrian Martinez.
Martinez was in the midst of a tight and competitive quarterback battle with fellow Californian Tristian Gebbia as Frost said time and again through fall camp how close the two were.
