    It was fitting that Sidney's Lady Raider Volleyball team punched their ticket to the 2022 NSAA State Tournament with a three-set sweep of Omaha-Duchesne Academy on Saturday afternoon as it was that same Omaha-Duchesne Academy team that bounced the Lady Raiders from the State Tournament the last time the Lady Raiders qualified back in 2019. Sidney owns a 28-and-6 record, is undefeated at 6-and-0 in District competition, and does not seem to be a team preoccupied with the past or "looking back" at...

    Potter-Dix's Coyote Football team continued their undefeated season with a first round playoff win against the Brady Eagles in Potter on Friday 109-to-41, the most points scored by a D6 team in NSAA 6-Man Football history. It was the Brady Eagles' first year as a six-man team, and they were part of a record-setting performance they'd most likely want to forget. The game started with Potter-Dix receiving the ball and freshman Dylan Tabor returning the kick off all the way for a touchdown. After...
