Former Husky joins Frost’s staff as GA coach

 Sometimes it’s funny how things work out when you least expect it.
Some might even call it fate.
Cole Ashby, a 2013 Aurora graduate, might have already been a part of coach Scott Frost’s staff down in Orlando if it weren’t for former Husker offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf offering him a position within the program this past summer.
No more ice. No more snow. No more frost. No more nasty winters living down south.
As things turned out -- six months later -- the Frost came to him.
Cole is now six months into a two-year graduate manager contract with the Huskers, a paid position as a full-time university graduate student.

Huskies ready for championship stretch

After spending much of its season on the road, the Aurora wrestling team enjoyed some home cooking this weekend, hosting a pair of meets as the regular season continues to wind down.
Aurora, despite missing several varsity wrestlers Saturday with the flu or other illness, went 3-2 on the day and had several JV guys step up, according to coach Derek Keasling.
“I was very pleased with our performance Saturday,” he stated. “With the number of varsity guys we had unavailable, we had several JV guys step up and do well.”

Hornets survive upset-minded Hawks

The No. 7 seed Hampton gave No. 2 seeded Giltner everything it wanted and more Tuesday night in the CRC tournament quarterfinals, but the Hornets made enough plays down the stretch to hold off the Hawks 53-42 at the York City Auditorium. After leading by 10, Giltner's lead was cut to four late in the fourth quarter, but Giltner was efficient at the free throw line to fend off the upset-minded Hawks. With the win, Giltner advances to the CRC semifinals and will play the winner of the 3/6 matchup of BDS and McCool Junction Thursday at 7:30 p.m. 

Rody Lyon led the Hornets with 11 points while Brodi Hansen chipped in nine. The Hawks were led by Jeremy Nissen, who scored 12 points while Jarrod Shoup added 11.

Seward suffocates Aurora at home

Although Aurora held Seward to just 13 points in the second half, the deficit was too much for the Lady Huskies to overcome. Brooke Williams led Aurora with 12 points in the loss.
