Broken Bow Junior Baseball finishes runner-up at Districts.

July 18, 2013

COZAD -- After a dramatic 6-5 win over Cozad to make it to the District final, Cozad reminded everyone why they were the number one seed Tuesday night, beating Broken Bow 16-6 and 10-2 to capture the District Title and move on to the state tournament.
In the end, Cozad, the team to beat for the past few years in the junior league, was just too strong.
“They had a fast outfield,” Broken Bow Coach Kyle Stringham said. “They take advantage of where we hit the ball. The first game, they jumped out 7-0 on us. That doesn’t happen, it’s a whole different ballgame.”

Put me in coach: Rules of the Game

July 11, 2013

When I attended the IMCA Stockcar races this past weekend (see C1), I was informed of a very odd rule that, to my knowledge, doesn’t exist in any other racing league.
In the rule book, there is a rule called the claim rule. For example, since Brady Weinman took home the victory, say the guy who finished last didn’t like Weinman and decided he wanted to claim his engine.

Life is better in the fast lane.
Especially when you finish 1st.
That’s exactly what Brady Weinman of Arnold managed to do July 6 at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds in North Platte.
Weinman races in the International Motor Contest Association (IMCA) Stock Car Hobby Division on a weekly basis.
The point system is broken down by tracks. Different racers can be ranked different in points standings at different tracks.
At Lincoln County fairgrounds, Weinman sits in 5th place with 176 points and is 5th in McCook as well with 103 points.
