McCook Bison Golf Results from 4-19-18 at Gothenburg

Comments from Head Coach Rick Haney


Today the Bison competed in the Gothenburg invite at Wild Horse Golf Course. All in All we had a decent day. Trevor Oberg continued to have a solid play by scoring an 81 to finish in 16th place. Given the competition and great players in this tournament he did another stellar job with his decision making and shots. Following him was Brady Esch and Gabe Vielma who scored 83's which was a decent score for this difficult course. Tanner Unger improved today by lowering his score to a season low with an 84. Tanner is one who is improving weekly. His 84 was good and I know he has his sights to even go lower over the next weeks. Hunter Hays rounded out the varsity with an 87. Hunter had some issues getting off the tee but did a nice job of recovering given the position he found himself in off the tee.

The team finished tied for fourth by scoring an 331. North Platte continued to show their power by winning with a very nice score of 295. Following them was Scottsbluff with a 323, Right behind them was Cozad who had a nice day with a 329. McCook Tied for fourth with Broken Bow at an 331.
In this meet we were able to see 9 of our 12 teams in our district meet so it was nice to be able to see most of the teams we will be seeing at districts later this season.
Our next meet is next Tuesday at Holdrege.


Huskers Fall Short in Rally Attempt Against Omaha

Lincoln, Neb. – Nebraska’s rally attempt fell short against Omaha at Hawks Field on Wednesday night, as the Huskers dropped an 8-7 decision to the Mavericks. The Huskers trailed 8-2 after the top of the sixth before scoring five unanswered runs.

Nebraska’s 2-3-4 hitters went 7-for-13 to lead the Husker offense. Scott Schreiber went 3-for-5, while Jesse Wilkening and Luke Roskam also notched multi-hit performances. The Huskers outhit Omaha 9-7, but NU walked nine Mavericks and hit five batters.

Omaha scored two runs in the top of the first, but Nebraska responded with two runs of its own to tie the game after the opening frame. Schreiber laced a triple before Roskam’s fourth home run of the season drove him in. After a scoreless second frame, Omaha tacked on a pair of runs in the third inning.

In the sixth inning, the Mavericks scored four runs to build an 8-2 advantage. NU’s first three batters each singled in the bottom of the sixth. Schreiber and Wilkening reached base first before Roskam’s RBI single brought in Schreiber. The two base runners were left stranded.

In the bottom of the seventh, Ben Klenke reached on an error before advancing to second on a wild pitch. A fielder’s choice advanced him to third before Wilkening’s RBI single drove him in. Roskam walked to load the bases before Angelo Altavilla hit a two-RBI single.

Klenke hit a one-out single in the bottom of the eighth before Hagge walked with two outs. Schreiber’s RBI single brought in one run, but the Huskers left two runners on base.

The Huskers travel to Piscataway, N.J., this weekend for a three-game series against Rutgers, starting on Friday at 1 p.m. (CT). This game time is one hour earlier than the originally scheduled start time.

MCC Golfers Gain Attention for Albatross, Eagle

Last week McCook Community College freshman golfer Cameron Lampe teed off at the second hole of the Northeastern Junior College tournament in Sterling, Colo., on the course known as the Northeastern 18.

The hole is 315 yards with a water ditch in front and a green protected by a large sand bunker on the right side and trees on the left.

He said he knew he struck to ball well but lost sight of it. When he walked up to the green, he saw the ball in the cup.

What Lampe had done was shot a double-eagle or an albatross -- golf terms reserved for players who shoot holes-in-ones on a par-4s, or score a “2” on a par-5 hole.

“I just saw the ball in the cup and that it was really cool,” Lampe said. In all honesty, he said he was just trying not to freak out.

According to the National Hole-In-One Registry the odds of an average golfer making a hole-in-one are 12,000-to-1. The odds of a low-handicapper making an ace are better at 5,000-to-1. The odds of two players from the same foursome acing the same hole is 17-million-to-1.

“I mean that was only the second hole of the day and I had 16 more to play and every week we’re battling for top team honors,” Lampe said.

As word spread among the golfers, it didn’t take long for much of the rest of the field to “freak out.”

The Double Eagle Club, which claims to be the worldwide registry for double eagles estimates the odds of an albatross or double eagle are 6-million-to-1. Golf Digest believes the odds to be closer to 1-million-to-1.

“I mean I only told one person but word spread quickly and then everybody we passed – coaches, players, parents -- wanted to congratulate me and talk about it,” he said.

There are an estimated 40,000 aces recorded each year and a couple hundred double eagles. You have a better chance of being hit by lightning. Only one player in the PGA has ever recorded an albatross, that came in 1991 at the Phoenix Open when Andrew Magee did it on a 332-yeard par-4, 17th hole at TPC Scottsdale.

So all Lampe had to do – after making at least a one-in-a-million shot -- was to keep his composure. He did manage par on the next hole.

Coach Tyler Loop said he was proud of how Lampe maintained his calm for the rest of the round. The coach is still getting calls, emails, and texts about the feat.

Sophomore teammate Brady Rogers, (Ord) was two groups behind Lampe.

When he teed off at No. 2, he too knew he struck to ball well but lost sight of it. When he walked up to the green, another coach told him about Lampe’s ace and had seen Rogers’s shot and said it was a great shot but came up six-to-eight inches short of duplicating Lampe’s feet.

“Should have used a little more club,” he joked.

Rogers ended up winning individual honors with a 68 and Lampe tied for third place with a 72.

“It’s really not as easy as these guys make it out to be,” Loop said. “It really made my day and for those guys with all the distractions for the rest of the day to go out and do what they did is remarkable,” Loop said.

“I felt the pressure but kept trying to focus on the next shot, and posting two low scores early I think helped our confidence as a team,” Lampe said. “Obviously it gave me confidence but I tried to use it as more a motivating factor.”

MCC won the meet with a 290 -- 17 shots better than fourth-place rival Eastern Wyoming. The team score vaulted MCC into the Region IX lead over the Lancers heading into this week’s meet at the Lancer’s home course in Torrington, Wyo.

“Our goal is still to win the region and this week will be a tough test for us because Eastern Wyoming is always tough at their place, but we’re looking to keep doing what we’ve done all spring,” Loop said.

Indians Win Thriller in Bottom of 9th

The McCook Community College Indian baseball team came back from a 5-0 deficit in the third inning and a 13-12 ninth inning deficit to beat Southeast Community College 14-13.

Tanner Zeggil (Stagner, Ontario) delivered the game-winning, two-out, bases-loaded, two-run single to cap the comeback.

The inning started with a walk from Jason Hill, (Surrey, British Columbia), a sacrifice bunt by Hunter Rynders (Centennial, Colo.) an intentional walk to Jake Sanford (who had two home runs in the game), and a two-out walk by Dalton Bartling, (Gretna High School) to set the stage for Zeggil, who singled on a 2-1 count in his first at bat of the game having come in as a defensive replacement in the eighth inning.

Shaun Hickey (Summersville, New Brunswick) started the game for the Indians giving up six runs on five hits in 2.1 innings and was relieved by Braydon Peif (Greeley, Colo.) who pitched 3.2 innings and gave up four runs on five hits.

Trailing 5-0 in the fourth inning, MCC came back to tie the game. Jacob Reid (Mississauga, Ontario) and Rynders singled in front of Sanford who homered to left. Michael Sookdeo (Brampton, Ontario) Bartling singled in front of Mathew Tremblay (Saint-Charles, Quebec) who drove home Sookdeo and Bartling scored on an outfield error to tie the game 5-5.

Southeast Community College took the lead back with three runs in the fourth but the Indians countered with five more in the bottom of the inning. Hill walked and Sanford singled for Soodeo who singled home Hill. Tremblay delivered a two-out single followed by a Johnny Giunta (Milton, Ontario.) home run to left field to give the Indians a 10-8 lead.

With two outs in the fifth inning, Rynders singled in front of Sanford who drove a line drive over the right-field fence to make it a 12-8 MCC lead.

The Storm struck for a pair of runs in the sixth inning and put three runs up in the eighth on an Aaron Palensky home run to left field to give the Storm a 13-12 lead. On the play Tremblay, MCC leftfielder, ran into the fence and had to leave the game – his replacement in the order was Zeggil.

Tyler Cox (Mississauga, Ontario) picked up the win pitching the final three innings allowing three hits, three runs and striking out five Storm hitters.

MCC had 16 hits in the game, 13 singles and three home runs led by Sanford’s four-for-five showing with 5 RBIs and 10 total bases. Sookdeo had three hits and an RBI, Tremblay a pair of hits with three RBIs and Rynders was the fourth Indian with a multi-hit game.

The Indians are 13-27 on the season (10-11 at home). With last weekend’s weather postponements MCC has two remaining home dates on the schedule: April 27 at 1 p.m. against Northeast Junior College and a May 2 doubleheader starting at 1 p.m. against Northeast Junior College.

This weekend MCC travels to Miles City, Mont. For doubleheaders Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Miles recieves one year extension

Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos announced Tuesday a one-year contract extension for Head Men’s Basketball Coach Tim Miles. With the addition of a year to his current deal, Miles is now under contract at Nebraska through the 2020-21 season.

Miles coached Nebraska to one of the best seasons in school history in 2017-18. The Huskers finished with a 22-11 record and earned a berth to the National Invitational Tournament. Nebraska posted a 13-5 Big Ten Conference record, setting a school record for most conference victories in a season.


Miles will enter his seventh season at Nebraska in the 2018-19 season. In addition to the NIT appearance in 2018, Miles guided the Huskers to an NCAA Tournament berth in 2014.


Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos:

“Tim and his staff did an outstanding job this season with 22 wins and 13 Big Ten Conference victories. That type of performance certainly merits an extension of Tim’s contract as the leader of our men’s basketball program.

“I have been very impressed with the energy and passion Tim provides for the Nebraska men’s basketball program, as well as his commitment to his staff and the young men on our team.”

Nebraska Head Men’s Basketball Coach Tim Miles:

“We have great young guys in our program. Our spring workouts are going well, and we are excited for next season. As this past season showed, we are building in the right direction. I am appreciative of the University administration and Athletic Director Bill Moos for their support of our program.”


McCook's Ron Coleman Golf Invite Results 4-17-18

Comments from Coach Rick Haney


The Bison had a really nice day today. We faced a tough field again today and finished second behind York. York has a remarkable team that has proved it is one of the top teams in class B this year and it was nice to finish right behind them today. The consistency we are showing as a team again showed today. This is the third meet this year when we have faced tough weather conditions and scored a 326.

Individually we were please to see Trevor Oberg finish second with a career best of 78. He is now seeing all the hard work and effort he has put into his game coming full circle and we are excited to see him continue to improve and score well. Gabe Vielma had another great day by scoring an 81 and finishing 5th in a tough field of golfers. Again, Brady Esch, Hunter Hays, and Tanner show that they are quality players by scoring wel. Brady Esch medaled with a 83 which is great. Hunter Hays medaled and finished 10th to give the Bison four medalists in the meet. Tanner Unger just finished out of the top 15 by placing 17 which is also great.
This team is improving daily and we are eager to see where our finishes will be in the near future as we continue to grow and improve as a team.
We had some younger player compete today also with some impressive scores. Logan Barenberg scored a 92 to finish in 23rd place in this meet. Ethan Hays carded a 92 to finish 26 which is very respectable.
Nest we go to Gothenburg this Thursday.
