To be in compliance with a new Nebraska State law on concussion awareness in high school athletics Hay Springs Schools will be testing ALL student athletes grades 6-12.
This MUST be done before competition or practice, again this is for all sports not just contact sports. ALL ATHLETES, ALL SPORTS!
Testing will be done:
Monday, August 6th
at Hay Springs High School
The tests, both a cognitive and a spacial test, will be conducted by the physical therapy department for Box Butte General Hospital.
This test will provide a baseline that athletes must meet before returning to play following a concussion.
It will be difficult to schedule a test after this date and may be expensive. Plan on attending om Monday, August 6th.
In only the second year of our revitalized wrestling program and only having freshmen and sophomores on our team we qualified half of our six man team for the state tournament in Omaha at the Century Link Center. The three qualifiers were freshman Levi Ray at 126 lbs, sophomore Joey Johnson at 132 lbs and sophomore Stevin Horrocks at 220 lbs.
Levi lost his first match to state runner-up Mason Klingelhoefer of Amherst and his second match to Garrett Sonderup of Fullerton. Joey lost his first match to Evan Ashcroft the third place finisher from Plainview and his second match was a loss to Cody Brouilett of MCJU.
Sophomore Stevin Horrocks won his first match over Scott Adams of Freeman by a pin in :51 seconds. His second match was to eventual 2 time state champion Jarrod Bazata of Howels by pin in 2:58. In the wrestlebacks Stevin pinned James Starr of Mullen in 4:58 then lost to eventual third place finisher Kalen Pfeiffer of Amherst. Both of his loses were to Seniors and place finishers.
Being a young team and a growing team we are looking for good things next year and a better showing at the state meet. The team placed 48th out of 64 teams with 7 points.
Hay Springs High School sent 50% of their wrestlers to state this year. Three of the six boys qualified at districts for the state competition. The three boys that are competing are Stevin Horrocks, Joe Johnson, and Levi Ray. The other members of the team are Chris Ray, Jordan Houser, and Kolten Marx. This is the first year in several that Hay Springs has had wrestlers qualify for the state competition. At the district competition Stevin and Joe both placed third in their weight classes and Levi placed fourth in his weight class. Jordan lost in the heart-break round and neither Chris nor Kolten made it to the heart-break round.
The boys will be competing in Omaha this week at the Quest Center. The first round takes place on February 16 at 4:30 pm (CT).
