Players recall memories of fatal crash

June 4, 2012

They never thought it would happen to them.

Hunter Campbell saw the oncoming pickup truck in their lane headed straight for them. He thought they would be able to swerve out of the way in time. It wasn't long after impact that he realized how wrong he was.

"I remember Harvey trying to swerve out of the way, but there just wasn't time," Campbell said. "I don't think I blacked out at any point, but once I looked up and saw everyone moaning, I crawled out the back and it was just me and Grayson (Minnick) out there."

Broken Bow baseball gets hot to start season

May 31, 2012

Low and away.
That’s the rule pitcher Michael Coleman stuck to in the season opener against Gothenburg Saturday.
The philosophy didn’t steer him wrong. Broken Bow cruised to a 10-0 victory behind Coleman’s 10 strikeouts.
Coleman’s confidence in his arm didn’t leave him surprised at his stellar outing.
“It was nice because I didn’t have to throw a lot of curve balls. I just threw a lot of fastballs low and away and they couldn’t handle it.”
While striking out 10, Coleman was also extremely efficient, allowing no walks and only giving up two hits in his five innings of work.

Broken Bow Spirit kick off softball season

May 31, 2012

While the Spirit softball team didn’t come away with a win in the tournament to open the season, they did come away with some valuable lessons.
“We’ve been working on covering the bases when the other team bunts a lot,” said pitcher/shortstop Kelsie Myers.
In the team’s second round robin game against Alliance, errant throws in the infield aided an Alliance victory.
It was from this game that the team learned how to keep the runners contained
