Sunday, Sept. 16


Overcoming a two-point deficit in the final round, Valentine recaptured the Rolling Rock from Ainsworth Sunday at Frederick Peak Golf Course in the annual match-play event between members of the two clubs.

After starting with a 4-1 lead in the scramble round, Ainsworth led, 8-1/2 to 6-1/2, heading into the singles round, needing four points to retain the Rolling Rock after winning the prior year’s event. Valentine rallied in the singles round with six wins and one match halved to come from behind for a 13-12 victory on its home track.

Valentine outscored Ainsworth, 3-2, in the alternate shot round to close the gap to two points at 6-4 after Ainsworth opened with the 4-1 lead, then both teams finished with 2-1/2 points in the best ball format to keep Ainsworth’s lead at two heading into the 10 singles matchups.

Valentine picked up singles wins from Jeff Wrage, Braden Bennett, Chris Elliott, Robert Joseph, Chris Huddle and Nick Larsen, and Andrew Parks earned a half point to get the team to its needed 13 points for the victory.

With the North Central girls basketball players and coaches cutting down nets and receiving gold medals following Saturday's state championship win over Bruning-Davenport-Shickley, KBRB was not able to hear the thoughts of the players and coaches during its post-game show.
That changed Monday, as KBRB's Graig Kinzie caught up with coach Alex McCleary and the Knight players to discuss winning the first state title in the history of the Keya Paha County and Rock County girls programs.
Three players - seniors Jadyn Bussinger and Caitlin Orton, and sophomore Miah Wiebelhaus - were named to the Class D-1 All-Tournament Team by both the Omaha World-Herald and the Lincoln Journal-Star.
North Central averaged just shy of 62 points per game during its state title run, and gave up an average of 50 points per game. That included holding BDS to just 35 points in a 19-point win Saturday in Pinnacle Bank Arena to complete a 25-3 season.
