The Western Nebraska Community College baseball team wrapped up the home portion of their season with a split with McCook Community College Sunday afternoon at Cleveland Field.
                In the opener, McCook scored three, fifth-inning runs and hung on for the 4-2 win. The second game saw WNCC’s Blake Slaymaker toss a 3-hitter in leading the Cougars to the 3-1 win to send the 13 sophomores out with a win in their final game at Cleveland Field.
                Gering’s Esai Hernandez, one of the sophomores, said they played well despite the split.
                “We played good. The pitching was really good,” Hernandez said. “The pitchers really located and were down in the zone. The defense was really good behind the pitchers and made plays when needed to. It was a good day.”
                The offense also did good things behind the pitching staff excellent day. The first game loss saw WNCC just not able to get a clutch hit, while the second game, the Cougars scored when they needed to early and then rode the strong-arm of Slaymaker on the mound.
                “Pitching was definitely the key today,” the Hernandez said. “The second game our approaches at the plate was way better and it definitely made a difference in the second game over the first game.”
                It was especially awarding for Hernandez and the rest of the sophomores to finish their careers at home with a win.
                “It means a lot to wrap up mine and the sophomores’ career on the field, especially with a win,” Hernandez said. “it is really special for us sophomores and I am pretty sure we will all miss playing here.”
                More importantly the Cougars are still in line for a regional tournament berth. The Cougars will next be in action on Monday when they travel to Northeastern Junior College for a 9-inning game. They then will wrap up the regular season with a six-game series at Miles Community College. Miles is 12-18 in the conference with six games left, while WNCC is 11-18 with seven games left.
                Hernandez said they must play well, just like they did in the second game on Sunday and the 17-13 win on Saturday.
                “We just need to play like we did [Saturday] and the second game today. The pitchers need to keep executing, the defense plays well, and the offense has good approaches,” Hernandez said. “We just need to drive in the runs when we need to.”
                Sunday’s contest was decided by pitching as both teams’ pitching and defense were stellar on the day. In the opener, Hunter Parker and Kale Litzelman allowed just seven hits and four runs. WNCC just couldn’t get the clutch hit to score runs when they needed.
                The second game belonged to Slaymaker, who tossed the complete game. McCook had just one double in the contest against Slaymaker from the bat of Beau Hawley. McCook pitcher Jacob Lombardelli also tossed a strong contest to go the distance. Lombardelli allowed five hits and all three runs came in the first two innings.
                WNCC and McCook each plated a single run in the first-inning of the second game. After McCook scored one, WNCC plated one after Cole Williams doubled and scored on a Brandan Maher single.
                WNCC added two runs in the second to grab a 3-1 lead. Tommy McRill led off with a single. Harrison Yates then was hit by a pitch. Mitch Lightbody followed with a 2-out triple to plate both runs.
                After that, neither team had much offense. Slaymaker cruised along, having three 3-up, 3-down innings. McCook had just three base runners in the final five innings. Slaymaker tossed just 87 pitches in seven innings of work.
                 The first game also saw fine pitching on both sides. McCook’s Tyler Cox went the distance in allowing seven hits and two runs while striking out six Cougars. WNCC’s Parker also went strong, going 6 1/3 innings in scattering six hits and allowing four runs. Parker struck out nine batters before giving way to Litzelman, who allowed just one hit in two-thirds of an innings.
                Offensively, WNCC scored single runs in the first and sixth innings.  Lightbody led off with a walk followed by a double by Brandan Maher. Lightbody then scored on a groundout for the 1-0 lead.
                The lead stayed that way until the fifth with McCook plated three runs on two outs to grab the lead. The Cougars sliced the deficit to a single run in the sixth as Claude Bova singled home Jonathan Bermudez. WNCC couldn’t get any more runs the rest of the way.
                Both teams had seven hits in the game. Lightbody and Jonathan Bermudez each had two hits while scoring a run. Lightbody finished with two doubles in the setback.

Crawford, Neb. (April 30, 2018) – Blaine Flack gets full rides.

 

Not only when he’s on his horse, competing in the Nebraska High School Rodeo Association.

 

But when he’s headed to college as well.

 

The Crawford, Neb. cowboy has been awarded a Rural Health Opportunities Program (R-HOP) scholarship, given to two students each year in the dental hygiene field. The R-HOP provides him with a full ride scholarship to Chadron (Neb.) State College and automatic placement into the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Flack is a senior at Crawford High School and has a 3.97 grade point average.

 

He excels in sports as well, finishing last year as the top throwing quarterback in Class D football for the state, throwing the ball for 2,200 yards. He was all-conference and all-district for both football and basketball all four years of his high school career, and he ran track as well.

 

Flack’s study of dental hygiene appeals to him. “It’s more than just cleaning teeth,” he said. “When you make the mouth healthy, the whole body is healthy.” He’s done some job shadowing and may consider attending dentistry school.

 

As the former quarterback for the Crawford Rams, he is quick to give credit to his teammates. “I had four good receivers and we ran good routes. I couldn’t do it without them and my line.” Crawford lost in the first round of state playoffs. Flack has been chosen to play in the Western Nebraska All-Star football game on June 9.

 

He is a member of the National Honor Society, serving as treasurer for the local chapter this year. He also runs track.

 

In high school rodeo, he competes as a tie-down and team roper and will rodeo for Chadron State this fall. He is on track to qualify for his fourth trip to the Nebraska High School Finals Rodeo in Hastings in June.

 

He is the son of Dave and Jessica Flack.

 

The Nebraska High School Finals Rodeo will be held in Hastings at the Adams Co. Fairgrounds June 14-16. Tickets are $7 for everyone ages five and up and are available through the office and at the gate. For more information, visit AdamsCountyFairgrounds.com or hsrodeo-nebraska.com, or call 402.462.3247.

   The Western Nebraska Community College and McCook Community College baseball teams combined for 30 runs and 33 hits Saturday in an Empire Conference contest at Cleveland Field.
                In the end, Jonathan Bermudez’ seventh inning grand slam proved to be the difference in leading the Cougars to the 17-13 win.
                Both teams will be back it for a doubleheader on Sunday at Cleveland Field beginning at 1 p.m. Sunday’s contest will also be the last home game for 13 sophomores.
                Cole Williams, one of the sophomores who went 2-for-5 with a home runs and two RBIs, said the team played well, especially offensively.
                “I think we played really as a team,” the Parker, Colorado, infielder said. “We all come together, played well, hit big balls when we needed to.”
                The offense really came around Saturday, and they had to, too. WNCC pounded out 16 hits with two doubles from Brandan Maher and Tyler Olson, one triple from Olson, and home runs from Williams and Bermudez.
                “We had a lot of big hits when we needed them,” Williams said. “We didn’t go down without a fight. It was super important to get those base hits because it puts pressure on the other team in making them get you out. If you don’t put pressure on them, it Is just an easy game for them.”
                Saturday’s game, however, didn’t start as an offensive contest with neither team scoring runs in the first two innings. The third inning on was where the offense came alive. McCook scored runs in six of the last seven innings, while WNCC plated four or more runs in three innings.
                The Indians struck first with three runs in the third before WNCC came back with five runs in the bottom of the frame. Mitch Lightbody started the scoring with a run-scoring single to plate Harrison Yates. Then, with two outs, WNCC added four more as Brandan Maher and Tyler Olson each knocked in a run to know the score. The Cougars went ahead 5-3 on a Tyler Schubert single to score two.
                McCook came back to tie the game with two in the fourth, only to watch the Cougars plate four runs in the bottom of the fourth. Williams started the offense with a 2-run home run. The Cougars added another as Olson had a 2-out triple for a 9-5 lead.
                McCook added single runs in the fifth and sixth to trail WNCC 10-7. It was the seventh inning that became while. McCook plated three runs to tie the score at 10-10. WNCC came back with seven runs in the seventh. WNCC’s big inning all started with Harrison Yates scoring two with a single. Maher than singles in Tommy McRill for a 13-10 lead.
                With the bases juiced, Bermudez hammers a fly ball over the leftfield fence for a grand slam and a 17-10 lead.
                McCook kept the offense going, scoring three in the eighth to cut the lead to. WNCC buckled down on defense in the night, as winning pitcher Nate Kolb struck out two and got another McCook to pop out in foul territory for the win.
                WNCC had six players with multiple hits in the win. Esai Hernandez led the team with three singles with a run scored. Hernandez also had three stolen bases.
                Lightbody, Williams, Maher, Bermudez, and Olson all had two hits. Bermudez had five RBIs and two runs scored to go with his grand slam, while Lightbody scored three runs. Maher added a double with three runs scored and two RBIs, while Olson had a double, triple, two runs scored, and two RBIs.
                Nate Kolb picked up the win, tossing the final 2 1/3 innings in allowing four hits and three runs, while striking out three. Alex Oehme started and went six strong innings in giving up seven runs and nine hits, while striking out six. Devin DeBoer also tossed an inning, allowing four hits and three runs.
                Williams added Sunday’s games are going to be special for the sophomores as they play for the last time at Cleveland Field. Last year WNCC

The winner advances to face the Kansas regional at the Kansas team’ home site May 9-10 for a trip the national tournament in St. George, Utah.

                WNCC struck first as Brooke Doumer scored on a Michaela Kelly hit for the 1-0 lead. Trinidad came back to plate one in the first and two in the third for a 3-1 lead. The Trojans added four in the fourth to expand the lead to 7-1.

Nebraska quarterback Tanner Lee was selected with the 203rd overall pick in the sixth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday by the Jacksonville Jaguars. With Lee's selection, a Husker has now been selected in 56 consecutive NFL Drafts dating back to 1963.

Lee is just the second Husker to be drafted by the Jaguars, who joined the National Football League as an expansion team for the 1995 season. The only other Husker to be selected by Jacksonville was linebacker John Hesse, whom the Jaguars selected in the seventh round of the 1997 NFL Draft.

Lee is the fourth Husker quarterback to be selected in the NFL Draft in the last 20 years joining Jammal Lord (2004), Eric Crouch (2002) and Scott Frost (1998), although Lord, Crouch and Frost all moved to a new position after starring at quarterback for NU. Lee declared for the draft following his junior season at Nebraska last fall and is the fourth Husker early-entrant to be selected in the past four NFL Drafts. He is also the first offensive early-entrant to be drafted since running back Brandon Jackson was taken in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft following his junior season at Nebraska.

A transfer who began his career at Tulane, Lee made the most of his only season as a Husker, throwing for 3,143 yards and 23 touchdowns last fall. A member of the Johnny Unitas Award Watch List, Lee ranked 24th nationally in completions per game (20.5) in 2017 and was second in the Big Ten and 26th nationally in passing yards per game (261.9). His 3,143 passing yards and 23 touchdown passes both ranked third in Nebraska history.

Lee threw for more than 200 yards in 10 of Nebraska's 12 games last season, including a trio of 300-yard passing days and one 400-yard effort. He threw for a career-high 431 yards at Purdue, the fourth-highest total in school history. His big day helped Nebraska rally from a 12-point fourth-quarter deficit to tie for the largest fourth-quarter comeback win in school history. On the game-winning 70-yard touchdown drive, Lee completed 7-of-8 passes for 70 yards, including the go-ahead 13-yard touchdown pass to Stanley Morgan Jr. with 14 seconds remaining.

Lee also excelled against the top competition, throwing for 964 (321.3 yards per game) and six touchdowns against only one interception in Nebraska's three games against teams who finished the year ranked in the top 10 (No. 5 Ohio State, No. 7 Wisconsin and No. 8 Penn State).

Prior to playing his lone season at Nebraska, Lee threw for 3,601 yards and 23 touchdowns over 19 games at Tulane in 2014 and 2015. In his three total seasons as a starting quarterback at the collegiate level, Lee finished with 756 completions for 6,744 yards and 46 touchdowns.

Lincoln, Neb. – The Nebraska baseball team (19-22) clinched a series victory by taking the second game against Nevada, 9-6, at Hawks Field on Friday night. The Huskers won the first game of the series on Thursday over the Wolf Pack by a 9-5 margin.

Junior Matt Waldron recorded seven strikeouts and no walks in 6.0 innings of work in his ninth start of the season. He allowed three runs on seven hits in earning his fifth win of 2018. Senior Matt Warren came in for 1.2 innings of relief before senior Jake Hohensee closed out the win with his team-high ninth save of the season.

Nebraska saw multi-hit performances from Jesse Wilkening (2-for-4), Brison Cronenbold (2-for-3) and Alex Henwood (2-for-3). The Huskers struck early with two runs in each of the first two innings. Mojo Hagge hit a leadoff double in the opening frame and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Wilkening laced an RBI double to bring in Hagge. Luke Roskam singled to advance Wilkening to third before Cronenbold’s RBI single drove him in.

Nevada tied the game at 2-2 with a pair of runs in the top of the second, but NU responded to take a 4-2 lead after the bottom of the second. Henwood reached on an error before Scott Schreiber smashed his team-high 15th home run of the season. The two-run shot puts Schreiber in a tie for sixth with Darin Erstad on NU’s career home runs list with 41.

In the fifth inning, Nevada scored one run in the top half of the frame before Nebraska scored three runs to extend its lead to 7-3. Cronenbold roped a leadoff double and advanced to third on a flyout in the following at-bat. Cronenbold scored when Ben Klenke reached on a fielder’s choice. Jaxon Hallmark walked before Henwood’s RBI single drove in Klenke. Hallmark scored on a wild pitch.

Hallmark blistered a two-out triple in the seventh and then scored on a wild pitch. Nevada answered with three runs in the top of the eighth to cut the lead to 8-6 before NU added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth.

Schreiber drew a leadoff walk before stealing second. After Wilkening was hit-by-pitch, a groundout advanced the runners to second and third. Cronenbold intentionally walked to load the bases. Mike Addante was walked to bring in one run before back-to-back outs ended the inning.

The Huskers and Wolf Pack conclude their three-game series on Saturday, starting at 12:05 p.m. (CT).
