A few spring sports teams at the high school level were finally able to get outdoors on Tuesday and compete.
Here’s some results from girls tennis and girls soccer.
Scottsbluff 4, Sterling, CO 1…the Lady Bearcats were originally scheduled to play this game at home but due to field conditions at the Landers Complex had to travel to Sterling to play and the get the year off to a good start behind a pair of goals from Emma Foote. Kieyerah Twombly and Taylen Holten also added single tallies. Anna Teson made four saves in the win. Scottsbluff will play again on Saturday at Gering.

Both Scottsbluff and Gering had opening duals yesterday at Ogallala. These matches were originally scheduled for here in town but due to court conditions got moved to Ogallala.
How rough has it been for spring sports teams? This is from Gering coach Ron Swank, “This was our first time on a tennis court this season. We’ve only been able to drill in the gym.” Wow.
