Western Nebraska Observer - Observations all along the line - Kimball & the Southern Panhandle First

Jock Talk


Despite the cold weather, Kimball High got a golf tournament and a track meet in this past week. The golfers played in a four-school Quad Tourney at Gering with just a nine hole format and despite not having their number one golfer, Jordan Greenwood, and despite just having four golfers while the larger schools played seven and eight, they were just 3 strokes from winning it all. Jordan was on a family vacation in Nevada but he wasn’t skipping out on practice as he played five top courses in five days with Dad Kenny. Coach Chad Wise saw his number 2 and 3 golfers shoot the same score of 42 and his number four golfer just a stroke back at 43. The Horns will be ready when they go to Mitchell on Tuesday, April 11, and then Bridgeport on Thursday, April 13.


The track team got their meet in at Creek Valley this past Monday despite the cold day and had some good performances. Next action for them is also April 13 at the WTC meet in Mitchell. This will be a good one, so you track fans need to try and make the trip. Potter-Dix will host a Junior High track meet at Kimball on Wednesday, April 12.


Congrats going out one more time to Kimball High senior Alexis Lulf for finishing second in the state for three-point field goals made in a single game with eight. A girl from Bellevue West won the top honor with 10 this past season.


Making honorable mention lists in their respective classes in the Omaha World Herald were Kimball sophomore Kate Reader in C-2. In D-2 Potter-Dix had three players named including Alexus Rozelle, Audrey Juelfs and Dawson Sharman. Banner County had MaKenna Dahlgrin, along with Payton Wick for the boys.


I trust you basketball fans watched all of the action on TV of the NCAA Basketball championship run. You saw Gonzaga make it to the championship game before losing. This is the same team that Mike Daum and his South Dakota State University team lost to in round one. Big Mike showed up pretty good against the number two finished in the Big Dance!

Big Mike is coming home! He will be back in Kimball the weekend of April 14 and will make a public appearance on that date, April 14, at 1:30 at the Kimball County Manor. Mike will give a little talk on his experiences this past season and will take pictures with the residents and anyone else interested. The public is certainly invited, his mother said. This is a chance to show Mike how much we appreciate him.
