Put me in coach

March 12, 2012

Hey guys, just in case you didn’t catch Ellen’s article on the front page, I’m going to take this opportunity to further introduce myself.
I recently took over as the sports editor for the Chief and I’ll tell you I’m thrilled to be here.
Unlike Dennis Driscoll, the former sports editor, I didn’t go to high school here. All of your faces and names are going to be new to me.
I’m originally from Omaha. I grew up there and graduated from Millard North High School. Needless to say this small town is a definite switch for me, but I find it starting to grow on me already.

Driscoll: Thank you

February 29, 2012

As some people already know, I accepted a position at the Kearney Hub and the girls state basketball tournament is going to be my final official work for the Chief. So, I guess it's customary to write a good-bye, so long and farewell column.
When I graduated from college I can honestly say returning to Broken Bow wasn't even in my vocabulary, but, I can tell you I'm happy I came back, even if it was just for eight months.

Knights fall in district final

February 29, 2012

Paxton 50
Sandhills/Thedford 46

NORTH PLATTE - - Paxton was able to survive a late Sandhills/Thedford rally and defeat the Knights, earning a trip to the state tournament.
Sandhills/Thedford led for one minute the entire game.
After Cole Taylor and Matthew McLeod scored two early baskets and a free throw and led 5-4, Paxton would seize the lead and the Knights were forced to play from behind the rest of the game.
The Tigers were able to run out to a 16-9 first quarter lead, and that was mainly due to Paxton's full-court defense that caused six first quarter turnovers.
