T.C. Solidifies Program

Tri County didn’t have the start they were hoping for, as they ran into some stiff competition at the 2016 NSAA State Wrestling Championships held last weekend at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha.
The Trojans had four competitors in Class D, but only a win was earned on the mats by the four wrestlers.
Sophomore Peter Spilker competing in the Class D 132-pound weight class lost both of his matches.
In his first round match, Spilker lost by fall in 1:27 to Winside’s Marcos Escalera. Spilker lost his first round consolation match on Friday by major decision, 10-2 to Dylan Davis of Medicine Valley.
Returning state qualifier junior Colby Ensz went 1-2 in his matches in the Class D 145-pound weight class.
Ensz lost his first round match on Thursday by major decision, 8-0 to St. Mary’s Jared Atkeson.

Free Throws Carry Jeffs

The old saying practice makes perfect described Fairbury at the charity stripe Monday evening.
Fairbury benefited from a strong night at line hitting 17-23 attempts to outlast Auburn, 50-46 in overtime in opening round play in the C1-1 Boys Subdistrict Basketball Tournament held at Beatrice High School.
Fairbury took charge early on jumping out to a 12-5 lead after eight minutes of play.
Auburn's offense came to life late in the fourth quarter behind the scoring of Samuel Neiman, Taten Minton, and Skyler Hopper to go on top, 41-39 with 1:04 left in the game.
Fairbury's Cody Huss got free on the wing and drained a two-point shot sending the game into overtime tied at 41.
In overtime, Fairbury shined at the free throw line connecting on 7-12 attempts to pull away from a 44-all tie with 1:45 on the clock.

Basketball is a game where you need to put the ball through the hoop.
Tri County was unable to capitalize on open looks at the basket, especially in the second half.
As a result, the Lady Trojans inconsistent shooting proved costly in Tuesday’s D1-1 Girls Subdistrict semifinal, 40-33 loss to Lourdes Central Catholic played at Beatrice High School’s O Zone.
Josie Weise topped the Lady Trojans in scoring with 11 points, and she grabbed a team-high seven rebounds, Haydyn Weise, five points, Freese, four points, Niemeyer, Wattjes, and Shayna Lijewski, three points each, while Weichel and Delaney Uher tallied two points apiece.
“I have a lot to thank our seniors, Delaney Uher, Miranda Vogt, Eryn Husband, Shalayna Niemeyer, Josie Weise, and Kelsey Crawford for getting our program going in the right direction,” said Tri County Lady Trojans head coach Bryce Simpson.

Despite Sloppy Play, D-O Prevails

A fast start almost went haywire, as some sloppy and less aggressive play in the fourth quarter by Diller-Odell allowed Pawnee City to storm back in Tuesday’s D1-1 Girls Subdistrict semifinal basketball game held at Beatrice High School.
Diller-Odell was able to right the ship late in the final quarter by nailing timely free throws to pull away for a 56-45 victory.
In the final 4:20 of the game, all of Diller-Odell’s points came from the free throw line connecting on 10-16 attempts to close out the 11-point win.
Madison Jurgens paced the Lady Griffins in scoring with 20 points, Hajek, 11 points, Schultis, eight points, Schroeder and Theresa Zarybnicky, six points apiece, and Katie Zarybnicky accounted for five points.

Season Ends For Lady Jeffs

Fairbury's Lady Jeffs basketball season came to an end Tuesday night, as they fell, 54-25 to Auburn in second round action of the C1-1 Subdistrict Basketball Tournament held at the O Zone at Beatrice High School.
Top seed Auburn began the game on a 10-0 run taking advantage of a number of Fairbury turnovers.
Fairbury's offense in the first quarter accounted for four points with two points scored from Sydney Miller and Britney Scheetz.
Despite their slow start, Fairbury had its best quarter of the game in the second tallying 11 points led by Regan Schmidt and Jessa Eden with four points apiece, and Macy Ohlde chipping in three points.
At halftime, the Lady Jeffs were still in the game trailing 27-15.
Fairbury Lady Jeffs head coach Amy Engle-Evans felt Auburn played very well throughout the game and capitalized a number of times off Fairbury turnovers.
