The Aurora girls cross country team rose to the challenge Friday afternoon at their home meet on Poco Creek Golf Course, taking on not only the competiton, but the heat as well.
“I’m really glad it stopped raining in the last two weeks for us to even get to run here,” coach Tony Sigler said. “The course was laid out pretty good and we set it up the last three nights. We didn’t tear it up and it’s always a very viewer-friendly course. We’re pretty happy with how everything played out.”

Badura, Lady Huskies set new records at Lakeview Invite

Article Image Alt Text

It was a record-breaking day for golf Thursday in Columbus, where Danica Badura posted a new school record 63 and the Lady Huskies carded the lowest team score in the program’s history to win the meet with a 344.
Playing a par-70 Quail Run Golf Course modified for tournament play due to damage caused during the March floods, the Lady Huskies took advantage of the opportunity to go low with every girl on the team posting a career-best score.
“We are really pleased with that,” coach Rick Bell commented. “That’s the lowest that’s ever been shot by an Aurora girls team, at least in the history I have. It was a really good day.”

Allen makes wave on special teams

Article Image Alt Text

Something about playing in Memorial Stadium at night brings out the best in the Huskers. That was on display Saturday night.

The Big Red did just about everything in a 44-8 win over Northern Illinois to move to 2-1 on the season.

Among those making big plays was former Aurora Husky Austin Allen, who was active on special teams for the Huskers. The redshirt sophomore recovered a fumble off a blocked NIU punt and later in the game, sniffed out a fake punt by Northern Illinois, tackling the punter a yard short of a first down. He also had a chance to score a touchdown off a second blocked punt go through his fingers -- literally. Allen also recovered a fumble from fellow tight end Jack Stoll in the second half to keep possession and eventually score.

While each team had plenty of their own successes, the Giltner Lady Hornets toughed out a three-set victory over the host High Plains team Thursday night by scores of 25-17, 24-26 and 25-11.

A forceful attack by HPC's Brooke Bannister carried the Storm forward to win the second, 26-24. 

Despite that, the third set was all Giltner as they ran away with it, 25-11. 

Both teams earned wins over East Butler in the other two matches of the triangular.
