Couple exemplify community spirit at state

LINCOLN — Perched high in the cascading seats of the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln Friday morning, DuWayne and Marcia Krueger focused their eyes on a small, spiral-bound notebook.

On the court, the Minden girls basketball team was steering its way to a 79-49 Class C-1 state semifinal victory over the Platteview Trojans. 

While the Whippets dribbled, Marcia scribbled. Keeping score. 
It's an unassigned, unassuming duty that Marcia has kept up for decades, just as diligently as she and DuWayne have followed Minden sporting events.

She is a 1957 Minden graduate and longtime community volunteer; he's a retired farmer and 1951 Whippet alum. 

Together, they have carved a spot of their own on Minden's spirit roster.

"We follow everything," said Marcia, 74, at halftime of the Whippets' semifinal game Friday. "Football, volleyball … and it's not just sports. We watch theater and speech and other activities, too."
