In addition to the Stuart and North Central athletes who automatically qualified for next week’s Class D Track and Field State Championships at Omaha Burke, several athletes earned berths in the state meet field by running a time fast enough to qualify as either one of the two fastest third-place finishers among all the Class D districts, or as one of the five non-district winning relays.

Rachel Kaup of Stuart finished third in the 400 meters Wednesday, but her time of 1:01.8 was one of the two fastest times in Class D not to automatically qualify, so she earns a trip to state.

The same goes for North Central’s Caitlin Orton, who ran third in the district in the 800 meters Wednesday. Her time of 2:34 was good enough to earn a spot in the 800-meter field.

The North Central girls 3200 relay of Lexy Heyden, Megan Erickson, Skylar Cosgrove and Caitlin Orton finished second to O’Neill St. Mary’s Wednesday. The relay’s time of 10:24 was one of the five fastest that did not win a district title, and the group gets a shot to compete in the state meet.

The North Central boys 3200 relay of Colin Erickson, Phillip Lewis, Justin Palmer and Cash Cosgrove also finished second in the district race, but their time of 8:38 landed them in the state meet field in Class D.
The full results from the D-4 District Meet are located below, along with the Stuart and North Central athletes who received automatic bids to the State Track and Field Championships May 22-23 at Omaha Burke.

2. Winnebago (24-1), 45.4800
3. Grand Island Central Catholic (22-5), 45.2963

7. Ainsworth (22-3), 44.1200
7. Wahoo (19-6), 44.1200
9. Gothenburg (19-6), 43.5600

Columbus Scotus would secure one wildcard entry. Ainsworth and Wahoo are tied for the second wildcard spot with an average of 44.12 points.
A tie-breaker format will determine the second wildcard. The tie-breaker is the number of Division I teams each team played during the season. Ainsworth played four Division I teams in its 25-game schedule, including Gothenburg twice, Southern Valley and Anselmo-Merna. Wahoo played six Division I teams, including Wahoo Neumann twice, Bennington, Seward, Grand Island Central Catholic and Columbus Scotus. That gives Wahoo the tie-breaker edge over the Bulldogs.

2014 Hunting Photo Gallery

 

KBRB is again running a photo gallery from the 2014 hunting season. Email high resolution JPEG photos to kbrb@sscg.net and include the hunter's name, the date the animal was harvested, the county where the hunt occurred and any other information (number of antler points/B&C score etc.)

 

Lance Philben used his bow to take this 5x5 whitetail buck in Keya Paha County three days prior to the opening of the firearm season.

 

Todd Kicken hit the daily double during the 2014 season, harvesting these two massive bucks in the Niobrara River Valley.

 

Colton Troxel scored a 5x6 whitetail buck during the firearm season.

 

Cole Sundquist scored this 5x5 mule buck on the second Saturday of the firearm season, Nov. 22, in Frontier County.

 

Trey Thornburg bagged a big 5x5 whitetail buck on the opening morning of the firearm deer season in eastern Holt County.

 

Moriah Beel's first buck was a 5x6 whitetail taken in Brown County on the family ranch.

 

Jayden Philben of Ainsworth used his bow on the opening day of the season Sept. 1 to harvest this massive buck still in velvet in southern Brown County.

 

It was another extremely successful year for the bow-hunting Welch clan. Zach Welch scored this buck with his bow in Keya Paha County.

 

Harlan Welch took this unique whitetail buck with his bow in Keya Paha County during the early stages of the bow season.

 

Madison Welch continued the family tradition, scoring her first buck with a bow in Keya Paha County.

 

Harlan Welch completed his hunting season with his second buck, a mature whitetail in Keya Paha County.

 

Three generations of Welches admire this battle-tested buck with two broken points, taken by Zach Welch (center) with his bow in Keya Paha County on the first day of the firearm season Saturday. Also pictured are Zach's father Harlin Welch Jr. (left) and grandfather Harlin Welch Sr.

 

(From left) Quincy Ash, Tyler Cress and Jayden Swett each harvested excellent mule bucks during the opening weekend of the firearm deer season. Ash took her mule buck on Saturday, while Cress and Swett closed out their hunts on Sunday.

 

Ty Conroy braved the snowstorm on the opening morning of deer season to bag this 4x4 buck in Boyd County.

 

Jake Gambill found this unique, pie-bald whitetail buck opening Sunday in Brown County. Notice the unusual pure white coloration on the buck's legs.

 

An unusual species for Brown County, Eric Sorensen of Ainsworth turned into a "Swamp Person," using only an 8-inch buck knife to take this 8-foot-3 alligator Nov. 14 near LaBella, Fla.

 

Logan Parde (left) and his grandfather Bob Micheel found this bull elk in the crosshairs Nov. 4 during the family's annual hunt in Colorado.

 

George Murdock (left) and John Halberslaben (right) both scored bull elk Nov. 3 during a hunting trip to Colorado.

 

The annual trip into Colorado again ended in success for the Lanka family, as Greg harvested this bull Oct. 13 in the mountains during the 2014 season.

 

Zach Lanka also scored a mature bull on the same day as his dad, Oct. 13, during the Colorado elk season.

 

Cody Goochey also had success during the 2014 Colorado elk season, harvesting this 6x6 bull Oct. 24.

* Bulldogs come up 1 bucket shy in overtime classic, finish as Class C-2 runners-up

(Posted 5 p.m. March 15)

Senior Matt McLeod's running shot at the buzzer in overtime banked away Saturday, and the Ainsworth Bulldog boys basketball team ended its season one basket shy of a state championship, losing 71-69 to Fremont Bergan.
In a classic state finals contest, the Bulldogs and Knights traded the lead back and forth while playing for the third straight day in their third different venue.
The Pinnacle Bank Arena crowd was treated to an instant classic between the Bulldogs and Knights. Ainsworth grabbed a six-point lead in the first half behind a monster performance from McLeod, but the Knights fought back with an end-of-the-half run to take a 39-37 lead into the break.
Fremont Bergan stretched that lead to as large as 12 in the second half, only to see the Bulldogs make a furious rally. With 12 seconds remaining in regulation and Ainsworth down by three, sophomore Brady Delimont came off a screen from junior Hunter Martin and buried a 3-pointer from the top of the key to tie the game. McLeod, playing with four fouls for much of the fourth quarter, blocked a Knight shot before the buzzer, sending the two teams to overtime.
With both teams running out of gas playing in their third game in three days, neither team gained more than a one-bucket advantage in overtime. Tied at 69-69 with the clock running out, the Knights hit a shot with 5 seconds to play.
The Bulldogs called their final timeout and set up a play for McLeod, who scored a game-high 31 points. Catching an inbounds pass, McLeod raced past the half-court line and got to 17-feet before having to launch a shot at the buzzer. The shot hit the backboard and caromed away, giving the Knights the Class C-2 title.
McLeod added a team-best 10 rebounds and five blocks to his 31 points to lead Ainsworth in his final game in a Bulldog uniform. McLeod, Delimont, Martin and senior Tanner Fuelberth played all 36 minutes in the overtime game. Delimont ended his sophomore season with a 16-point effort and a team-best four assists.
Playing in his final game, Fuelberth finished with 12 points and eight rebounds, making 3 of 7 shots behind the 3-point line. McLeod went 4-for-6 beyond the arc, and the Bulldogs hit eight 3-pointers in the game to extend their Nebraska all-class record for 3-pointers in a season to 289. Ainsworth finished 13 triples ahead of the previous record-holder, Bellevue West in 2006.
Jonah Madsen led Fremont Bergan with 18 points, all of which came behind the 3-point line. Madsen went 6-for-10 from long range, and the Knights finished 9-for-19 as a team behind the 3-point line. A day after hitting 16 of 33 from beyond the arc, the Bulldogs finished 8-for-26 from 3-point range.
Adam Dykman added 17 points and 13 rebounds before fouling out in overtime. Nathan Griffen finished with 16 points, and Colton Brdicko added 12 points in the overtime win.
There were 15 ties and six lead changes in the game. The Bulldogs ended the season with a 25-3 record, and the Knights finished 24-3 as the state champions.

* Bulldogs set season 3-point record in semifinal win over Freeman

(Posted 4:30 p.m. March 14)

The Ainsworth Bulldogs knocked down 16 of 33 attempts from beyond the 3-point line Friday en route to a 69-56 victory over Freeman during the Class C-2 Boys State Basketball Tournament semifinals in the Bob Devaney Sports Center at Lincoln.
With the 16 triples, Ainsworth set the single-season record for made 3-point shots with 281, surpassing a record of 276 set by Bellevue West in 2006.
The Bulldogs grabbed an early lead Friday and held on throughout the game. Ainsworth led by eight at the end of one quarter and extended to an 11-point lead at the half.
The Falcons closed to within four points in the third quarter, and were within six in the fourth quarter before Ainsworth put the game away.
Sophomore Brady Delimont tied a Class C-2 state tournament record by hitting seven 3-pointers on his way to a game-high 25 points.
Seniors Matt McLeod and Tanner Fuelberth each scored 16 points. Both missed double-doubles by a single rebound.
The Falcons finished with three players in double figures, and were led by 17 points from Derek Veerhuzen. Cole Schuster added 16 points and 10 rebounds, and Isaac Frerichs scored 15 points a day after dropping 26 points in a win over Kimball.
The Bulldogs shot 33 times behind the 3-point arc, making 16, and attempted only 10 two-point shots during the game, connecting on six. Ainsworth went 9-for-17 from the free-throw line.
Freeman hit 8-of-26 behind the 3-point line, and went 13-for-31 from two-point range. The Falcons shot just eight free throws, hitting six.
The top-seeded Bulldogs (25-2) will play for their second state basketball title Saturday against No. 3 Fremont Bergan. Bergan (23-3) went to overtime Friday to defeat second seed Doniphan-Trumbull, 58-55.

* Ainsworth moves on to Class C-2 Boys State Basketball semifinals

(Posted 3:30 p.m. March 13)

The Ainsworth Bulldogs pulled away in the second half Thursday to post a 71-54 victory over Battle Creek and advance to the Friday semifinals of the Class C-2 Boys State Basketball Tournament.
The Bulldogs led by six at the half, 38-32, only to see the Braves close to within one midway through the third quarter. However, Battle Creek's two leading scorers, Zach and Jared Beller, got into some foul trouble and the Bulldogs stretched the lead to double figures.
The Bulldogs were led by senior Matt McLeod, who finished with 24 points and seven rebounds. Sophomore Brady Delimont, senior Tanner Fuelberth and junior Hunter Martin each scored in double figures as well.
