Lexie Gilbert said something ominous for her competitors at the state track meet. She won the 100 and 200 meters as a freshman in 2017, and now, “I kinda know what I’m doing this time.” Her chief competition is Lexington's Madison Smith, who has Class B's top mark in the 100, 200 and 400, but the nearly statewide distance between the schools prevented Smith and Gilbert from running against each other until Saturday's sprint finals.

The York Dukes fell on three fumbles in the first five minutes of Friday night’s road game with the Lexington Minutemen and turned two of them into points at Minuteman Field. The Dukes held on to their early lead and picked up the first win of the season, 35-0.

Solid, not spectacular, was the way two-time defending champion Columbus Scotus started its march at history. The Class B No. 2 Shamrocks scored once in each half and limited seventh-ranked Lexington to few chances for a 2-0 win in the opening round at Morrison Stadium.

A little fatigue went a long way for Hastings in Monday’s Class B, District 5 semifinal against Northwest. The Tigers hit their first four shots in the final quarter at Grand Island Senior High to start turning a one-point lead into a 45-30 victory.

An overwhelming start helped the Scottsbluff boys basketball team cruise to a 78-29 rout of Lexington during the opening round of the East-West Shootout on Thursday night at Scottsbluff High School.

Early on, it didn’t look like Thursday would be a record-breaking day for Northwest pitcher Alyssa Vanosdall. Lexington jumped ahead by three runs before the Vikings took their first at-bat at George Park.

The Scottsbluff softball team came close to pulling out a victory in its season opener Friday. But Lexington, which trailed 3-2 going into the bottom of the seventh inning, punched across two runs in the final inning to rally for a 4-3 victory.

Gretna’s Dave Fisch had a feeling the Nebraska Shrine Soccer Classic boys game would go one of two ways. It ended up being a defensive struggle. After neither team scored in regulation, the game went to a shootout, which the South won 5-3 to come away with the victory.
