OMAHA — The pack mentality, paced by the lead runner Brynn Hirschfeld, set the York girls track team apart from the rest of the Class B field …
For the second time in four days, the York junior recorded a class-best time, as her 800-meter mark (19.28 seconds) highlights the Yowell Classic.
"We love each other so much so when we feel that confidence from one person, it just spreads like a wildfire to our whole team."
Dukes coach Matt Kern: “As we’ve done all year, we really leaned on our defense.”
The No. 2 Titans showed just how dangerous they can be when the shots are falling in the B-1 district final Saturday.
The Dukes worked on improving their shooting during the summer, which came in handy against the Antlers in a clash of top-five teams.
The 6-foot outside hitter is leaving her mark on the school record books and has solidified her spot as one of the top outsides in the state.
The ninth-rated Dukes avenged a loss earlier in the season to No. 5 Beatrice and also picked up a win against Seward.
The Titans came up short in district finals in both of the past two seasons. Not this time. Brianna Stai scored 14 of 20 first-quarter points.
A look at highlights from Monday's girls subdistrict basketball action.
Matt Kern admits, he's not a big theme guy. But the York girls coach is having a lot fun with one this season, and so is his team.
