Huebert scores five touchdowns as Aurora wins 46-27 in Alliance

Playing in the Moutain Time Zone didn't throw off the Huskies' Tobey Huebert Friday night in Alliance. The senior receiver helped his team to a 46-27 win by scoring five touchdowns in a class B tilt out west. Huebert led the team with nine catches for 100 yards and two touchdowns. He also was featured as the goal line back and converted on a couple of toss sweeps out of the I-formation to net two more scores. Huebert also had success in the return game, slicing his way through defenders in the first quarter for another score. Senior QB Jake Kittle threw for 313 yards and two touchdowns while going 18-35 through the air. Senior running back Matt Oswald led the team in rushing with 12 carries for 100 yards. Oswald was a key part late in the game as he killed clock and broke a few long runs. Check this week's edition for a more detailed game story as well as thoughts from head coach Randy Huebert.

High Plains comeback falls short

High Plains spotted the West Point Guardian Angels a 22-point first quarter lead Friday in the season opener for both teams, and then fought back with a furious second-half rally to have a chance to win. Facing a fourth and four from their own 15 with 2 minutes to play, Storm quarterback Jabe Wertz had an open receiver, but the ball was knocked down at the line of scrimmage, ending what would have been a go-ahead drive.

Rickert takes over High Plains volleyball

Effort is Joan Rickert’s thing. She wants to see it when the High Plains Lady Storm take the court for each and every game and practice.
It’s something Rickert, who was tabbed as the new head coach of the Lady Storm in May, knows all about.
One doesn’t spend years coaching volleyball ranging from high school-aged teams from Columbus to college-aged teams in Nebraska and Missouri without knowing what it takes and providing the necessary effort along the way. With the effort she preaches, success will hopefully follow.
