Striv Stars 10.8.15


Stars shining bright again last week. Here’s our “Striv Stars.”

Let’s start with district girls golf. We had seven teams qualify for next week’s state tournaments in Class B and C. York (district champ), McCook and Northwest in B. Fullerton, Shelby-Rising City, West Point-Beemer (district champ), Cozad (district champ), Dundy County-Stratton.

Lacie Fox (West Point-Beemer): Fox shot an 8-over par 80 at Wayne Country Club yesterday to win the Class C, District 3 championship. The Cadets won the team championship 384 to advance to next week’s state championship.

Josh Demers (High Plains): Demers took to the backfield just fine last week as the Storm beat Cross County 51-14. Demers had 186 yards on 17 carries and three touchdowns. He added a pair of receptions for 57 yards and another score.

Luke Ericson (Osceola): We’ll talk about Luke’s team later in the show, but he has the Bulldogs off to a 5-0 start and ranked 4th in Class D2. On Friday, here in Grand Island, he ripped Heartland Lutheran for 358 yards on only 18 carries while scoring six touchdowns in a 80-38 win over the Red Hornets. For the season, Ericson has 829 yards on only 73 carries and 20 touchdowns.

York Duke Softball: The Dukes improved to 27-0 on the season by winning the Central Conference championship with wins over Fairbury (10-0), Crete (13-1) and Grand Island Northwest in championship game 7-2. York remains No. 1 in the Omaha World-Herald all-class rankings heading into district play which starts tomorrow at Seward. They’ll face the winner of Norris and Crete at noon.

Brady Bamesberger (Central City): Maybe the biggest win of the Troy Huebert era last week for the Bison and Bamesberger didn’t disappoint. In the Bison’s 20-17 win over Kearney Catholic, he had 10 receptions for 171 yards night last Friday including an 85 yard TD pass from Mitch Carlson.
