Coach Plummer has coached a variety of sports including football, basketball, and track .  

Plummer stated, “I appreciate all of the support I have received from the school administration, but I felt it was the right time to step aside from head basketball.  I’ve enjoyed coaching and appreciate all of the athletes I’ve had the opportunity to work with during my career.”
“Coach Plummer has done an excellent job leading our boys basketball program.  Randy was phenomenal at helping players achieve beyond what they thought they were capable of.  He will be sorely missed in basketball, but we are fortunate to still have him in the classroom and coaching track,” stated Athletic Director Glen Koski.

GERING, NE - It was only a matter of time until the bats came around for the Western Nebraska Pioneers. And come around they did on Wednesday night at Oregon Trail Park Stadium in Gering.

The Pioneers offense exploded for ten runs on fourteen hits to back a strong outing from Chet Jones to beat the Spearfish Sasquatch 10-1, securing the first ever win in franchise history. After scoring just eight combined runs in three one-run losses to start the season, it was a welcome sight for the fans and players.

Jones started the game for the Pioneers (1-3) just one day after joining the team and made an instant impact. He had Sasquatch (3-2) hitters off balance all night, working 1-2-3 innings in three of this five shutout frames, allowing just 2 hits and one walk while striking out six. The Pioneers bullpen was nearly flawless behind him as well, with Brandon Morse striking out all six batters he retired and Dagin Renck and Cal Beardsley allowing just two baserunners over two no-hit innings out of the back end of the bullpen.

It did not take long for the Pioneer bats to break out to help out the cause on the mound. Travis Turney led off the bottom of the first inning with a double to right field, and scored two batters later on an RBI single to left field by Cooper Shearon. Turney hit another double in the third inning that scored two runs to make the score 4-0, and the floodgates opened from there. Western Nebraska tacked on three more in the sixth and were well in command by the time Jones left the game in the sixth inning.

Six different Pioneers recorded multi-hit games, including Alex Achtermann, in his second game with the team. Tanner Baker continued his extremely hot stretch to the season with a 2-for-4 showing with a double and two runs scored; his .500 batting average is tops amongst Expedition League hitters in the early going.

Dylan Schneider started for Spearfish and allowed seven runs over 4 innings of work, allowing just one walk but giving up ten hits with just two strikeouts to take his first loss of the season. Sean Keating followed out of the bullpen and gave up 3 runs on 4 hits and 1 walk over two innings while fanning two. Parker Schkade tossed two scoreless innings of relief at the back end for Spearfish.

The Pioneers will look to take the rubber match on Thursday and claim their first series victory of the season. Left-hander Jeff Griffith will take the ball for the Pioneers in his first start of the summer. First pitch is schedule for 6:35 PM MST at Oregon Trail Park Stadium.
