Last year, Giltner’s Dayne Hinrichs watched as his cousin, Josh, take part in the Sertoma 8-man All-Star Game and score a touchdown in the contest. Once Dayne found out he was selected to play in this year’s, he bet Josh he would double his touchdown total.

SPEARFISH, S.D. — Matt Hess’ no-hit bid ended when Spearfish’s leadoff in the sixth inning singled to centerfield on a ball that bounced out of Donovan Murray’s glove on a diving attempt. But he flourished for seven innings and left a tie ballgame after Grant Schmidt smashed a no-doubter for…

Over the weekend, the Five Points Bank senior American Legion baseball team suffered a pair of losses for just their third and fourth defeats on the year. The Chiefs had an opportunity to bounce back in front of the home crowd Tuesday and took full advantage of it.

Fundamentals are the name of the game, and the Hastings Sodbusters weren’t very fundamentally sound in Monday night’s 3-2 loss to the Spearfish Sasquatch.

HASTINGS — After a tough first inning on Sunday, the Hastings Sodbusters looked primed to chip into the Spearfish Sasquatch’s early lead. This was not the case though, as the Sasquatch kept the Sodbusters at bay for an 11-5 victory at Duncan Field.

After playing a late game Thursday night in Casper, Wyo., the Hastings Sodbusters made the long trek back to Nebraska, getting into town after 8 a.m. Friday. The team then had to be ready for the series opener against Spearfish less than 10 hours later.

After a rough start, the Johnson Imperial Homes junior team rallied in the fifth inning and secured a 5-3 win Wednesday over Kearney Legion Post 52 at Duncan Field.

It was too little too late as Johnson Imperial Homes failed to come back during the seventh inning of their match-up Tuesday night against the North Platte juniors at Duncan Field.

CASPER, Wyo. — For the second time in three games, the Sodbusters’ hearts were ripped out with a walk-off home run.

LINCOLN — Nebraska baseball coach Darin Erstad announced Monday afternoon that he has resigned from his position.

There aren’t too many other ways to describe the type of baseball game that was the nightcap of the Hastings Sodbusters’ doubleheader with the Casper Horseheads Monday at Duncan Field.

COLUMBUS — Adams Central went to Columbus with the intention of bringing home the Class B boys state golf championship. After setting the school record for lowest team strokes in a round (300) to win the district title, the Patriots goal seemed like a real possibility.

OMAHA — The Class D boys pole vault was one of the deeper events at Friday’s state meet at Omaha Burke High School. Ten vaulters eclipsed the 13-foot mark. And four of those were Tribland athletes.

OMAHA — Two-time defending discus champion Kalynn Meyer started her day by setting a new state meet record in the preliminary round. That throw itself would have placed first by nearly 24 feet.

LEXINGTON — It was a banner day for the Hastings boys track and field team at the Class B, District 5 meet in Lexington. The Tigers claimed 12 automatic berths at next week’s state meet in Omaha en route to a team runner-up finish.

GRAND ISLAND — What a day it was for Adams Central, not only did the Patriots capture their second straight trip to state by winning the B-3 district title Tuesday, but they did it in style, breaking the school record score by eight strokes, finishing with a team score of 300 at Jackrabbit R…

OMAHA — The first time the Hastings baseball team squared off with Waverly was April 18. The Vikings were ranked No. 1 at the time and handed the Tigers their four loss of the year.

OMAHA — "I think it's a huge statement. For us to come out and beat a good team like Seward like that — they beat us earlier in the season... and for us to run rule them like that was a big statement."

FAIRFIELD — When it comes to qualifying for the state meet in Class D, field event athletes must place in the top two at the district meet or reach the qualifying distance or height.

Hundreds of sharpshooters put their skills on display in Doniphan at the 50th annual Cornhusker Trapshoot. And at the end of the competition, it came down to two marksmen breaking a tie in a shootoff.
