Coach Bohac

Congrats going out to our Adam Bohac for coaching his Southern Nazarene University Men’s Basketball Team into the NCAA Division II Central Region Tournament for the 3rd straight year. Watch for the bracketing that starts March 14, and you can probably bring it up some way on your TV.

Four Winds

Opening Day

It is Golf Time! The Four Winds Golf Course is to open tomorrow ... FRIDAY ... March 13th! Don’t let the weatherman see this announcement.

Pat O’Brien has asked me to remind all you men who might be interested in playing in the Four Winds Men’s Monday-Tuesday League to give him a call at 235-5009, or sign up with Chad at the Pro Shop.

Breckyn Kiefer

In the world of gymnastics, Kimball’s Breckyn Kiefer is making headlines once again. The talented 9 year old was in competition this past weekend at a large meet in Monument, Colorado, and brought home more awards to add to her trophy room.

Breckyn finished in second place in both the tramp and floor and was the champion, taking first place in the double mini!

Breckyn has a couple of meets coming up that are closer to home as she is at the Gering meet this coming Saturday at the Carpenter Center, and then on March 28 the Nebraska State meet is being held at the Cougar Palace in Scottsbluff. After that it’s off to meets all over the country.

Congrats, Breckyn, and speaking for all your local fans, we wish you the best!
