High school notes: Shrine Bowl rosters get a makeover

With conditioning a concern since the spring sports season was canceled, Shrine Bowl rosters also have been expanded to 45 players.

LINCOLN — Rosters for the 62nd Nebraska Shrine Bowl on July 11 in Kearney have a different look compared with the original list in February.

The game was to have been played June 6, then was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Twenty-two of the original 74 players are not showing up for the July 6 start of training camps in Kearney, mostly because of college football commitments.

The only Nebraska walk-ons still listed as playing are Bladen Bayless of Beatrice, Nate Boerkircher of Aurora, and Braden Klover from Southern, all for the South.

With conditioning a concern since the spring sports season was canceled, rosters also have been expanded to 45 players. The game has a 2 p.m. kickoff at UNK’s Cope Stadium to accommodate an NET telecast.

No fans for Metro all-star games

The Metro Basketball Coaches Association is hoping to play its girls and boys all-star games July 19 at Omaha Skutt, with girls at 3 p.m. and boys at 4:30

State guidelines that kick in Wednesday allow basketball as one of the contact sports that can begin practices and games.

MBCA honors

Jayme Horan of Millard South for Class A girls, Chucky Hepburn of Bellevue West for Class A boys, Miley Prine of Bennington for Class B-C-D girls and Tyson Gordon of Omaha Skutt for Class B-C-D boys are the Metro Basketball Coaches Association’s players of the year.

Coaches of the year were Josh Siske of Papillion-La Vista for Class A girls, Doug Woodard of Bellevue West for Class A boys, John O’Connor of Bennington for Class B-C-D girls and Kyle Jurgens of Skutt for Class B-C-D boys.

Class C summer tourney

Oakland Golf Club is hosting a 36-hole invitational Monday and Tuesday for Class C boys golfers, who lost their season to the pandemic.

Teams from Yutan, David City, Grand Island Central Catholic, Doniphan-Trumbull, Johnson County, Norfolk Catholic, Wahoo Neumann and Columbus Scotus will join host Oakland-Craig in the field. Individuals are coming from seven more schools.

Dallas Sweet, who’s leaving Oakland-Craig as athletic director for Malcolm, said club members came up with the concept.

“Is anyone surprised the community that’s won 15 state championships wanted to find a way to see some great high school golf played?’’ Sweet said.

Ducker honored

All-Nebraska running back Jay Ducker of state champion Bellevue West, who will play for Northern Illinois, is the state’s only honoree among the 82 members of the 2020 National Football Foundation Team of Distinction.

Criteria to make the team include but are not limited to academic achievement, athletic accolades and community involvement. Each NFF chapter is limited to one honoree, distinguishing the winner as the top scholar-athlete from all the high schools covered by the chapter.

Ducker was the state’s Gatorade player of the year and the Greater Omaha Sports Committee’s scholar-athlete for football.

Southeast coaching moves

Lincoln Southeast is looking for a boys basketball coach after Jonah Bradley resigned recently to become an assistant coach at NCAA Division II Winona State. Bradley was at Southeast for three seasons after coaching at Lexington.

The Knights’ new girls soccer coach will be Liz Sundberg, an All-Nebraska player at Lincoln Southwest who played a year at NU. She replaces Jim Ageton, whose record including his time as the Knights’ boys coach was 109-63.
