This past weekend I was playing a game with my kid.
It was a game of defensive strategy Feb. 26 when the Lady Swedes took on the Class C-1 No. 7 Lincoln Lutheran Warriors at Aurora High School in the C1-3 district final.
For the second year in a row, Ethan Libich and Abe Mendez worked their way through the district tournaments to reach the NSAA State Wrestling Tournament.
The Lady Eagles had a hard row to hoe this year in a basketball season that brought many hurdles, both on and off the courts. Last week, the girls played their final game, losing the match to Sumner-Eddyville-Miller 59-14. That was the first game in the Subdistrict tournament, and ended Brad…
A challenging season for the Eagle boys’ basketball program closes in on the end with the move to Subdistrict play this week. The Brady club took on Medicine Valley at Wallace Feb. 23 in the first round, with those results not available by press time. Closing out regular season play last wee…
On Feb. 17-18, two Brady grapplers made the trek to Omaha to compete in the NSAA State Wrestling Competition. For senior Jeremy Larson, the third time is a charm, as he collected his first state championship to cap off an undefeated season, going 48-0. Junior Triston Stearns enjoyed his inau…
The Lady Swedes are shining up their dancing shoes as they prepare to take on Lincoln Lutheran High School on Feb. 26 at Aurora High School in the C1-3 District Final game.

Eleven Swede wrestlers qualified for the district meet in Gering on Feb. 13 - two kept their season alive, advancing to the NSAA State Wrestling meet in Omaha. It will be a return trip for both.
The road to the State Wrestling Championships took a detour this season when the Nebraska School Activities Association announced there would be a subdistrict wrestling tournament.
It’s no secret that the Swede boys’ basketball team has faced many challenges over the course of the season, and this past weekend, the resilience of the team shined bright as they got two big wins.
The Lady Swede basketball team had a full week of practice before taking on Valentine at home and Minden on the road Feb. 5 and Feb. 8, and Coach Kassie Schuett said that time in the gym was like money in the street.
The Eagle hoopsters ended the boys’ MNAC tournament on a high note last week, harrying the Arthur County Wolves to a 55-43 defeat. It was a welcome victory to an Eagle team coming off a loss to state-ranked Mullen on Wednesday.

The Lady Eagles played just one game last week to finish out the consolation bracket of the MNAC tourney on Friday. Facing the Arthur County Wolves, a 10-5 team coming off a loss to Sandhills-Thedford in first round tournament action, the Eagles were defeated 60-27.
It’s been a big year for women across the country, and this past weekend, a student athlete broke a glass ceiling of her own.
Gothenburg’s basketball team took on a strong week of competition and despite the snow days, they are ready to get back on the court for some Southwest Conference Tournament action as they bear down on the last bit of their season.
If you take care of the little things, the big things will come. Although it’s hard to remember that sage advice in the middle of a losing season, the Lady Eagles are showing some bright spots as they continue to battle on the court.
