Hastings College: Sunderman resigns

Head Women’s Tennis Coach Roger Sunderman has resigned from his position effective immediately. “I want to thank Hastings College for the opportunities for professional and personal development that have been provided to me during the last four years,” Sunderman said. “I have enjoyed working for Hastings College and appreciate the support provided me during my tenure with the College.”

“I want to commend Coach Sunderman for the outstanding season the women's tennis program just completed. Thank you Coach Sunderman for all that you accomplished for Hastings College. Good luck to you in your future endeavors,” said Ron Hergott, Hastings College Lifetime Sports Director.

Sunderman led the women’s tennis team to its first ever Great Plains Athletic Conference regular season and tournament crowns; this was also the first time the team had won a conference title since 2000.

Hastings will begin to look for a new women’s tennis coach immediately.


Danger gear up for Blizzard Saturday night

GRAND ISLAND, NE – The Nebraska Danger are still fighting to earn a spot in the Intense Conference playoffs, and Saturday’s match-up against the Green Bay Blizzard is important in keeping the Danger in the hunt for a spot. The Danger are currently third in the Intense Conference standings, one game behind both the Arizona Rattlers and Spokane Empire with five games remaining.


The Blizzard will be traveling to Grand Island looking to end an eight game losing streak. Green Bay picked up a pair of early season wins against the Cedar Rapids Titans, but have fallen just short in almost every game since. Two of those losses were only by one point; to Arizona 30-29 and at Iowa 26-27. The Blizzard were also able to jump out to an early 17-0 lead against Sioux Falls before having that lead evaporate in a 49-56 loss.


“Green Bay is really a solid team, but just has not been able to get over the hump this season,” said Danger head coach Hurtis Chinn. “They’ve been real close in most of their games, so we need to be focused and play solid for four full quarters.”


Finishing out games has been a point to work on for the Danger this season. Two weeks ago, the Danger fell behind the Wichita Falls Nighthawks 26-35, but were able to claw their way back to only trail 40-44 with nine minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. On the ensuing drive, the Danger looked to have two separate stops on the Nighthawks, but penalties kept the drive going. An illegal defense penalty negated a fourth down stop and holding gave the ball back to the Nighthawks after the Danger appeared to have pulled in an interception. The Nighthawks capped off the drive with a touchdown and went on to win 40-57.


“Some unfortunate penalties really killed our momentum tonight,” said Chinn. “When that happens, we preach to forget about it and move on. Focus on the next play and don’t worry about what has already happened. It’s still a work in progress, but I know our guys have what it takes.”


Kickoff is set for 7 pm Saturday night at the Heartland Events Center in Grand Island, with First Responders Night as the feature. The Grand Island Professional Firefighters Local 647 will be sponsoring “Fill the Boot” for the Muscular Dystrophy Association. All First Responders can get a free general admission ticket by showing ID at the Heartland Events Center Box Office. Doors open at 6:00 with pre-game activities beginning at 6:30.


Tickets for Saturday night are available at area Pump & Pantry stores, the Heartland Events Center Box Office, or via Ticketmaster. The game will be broadcast live on 2DayFM 103.1, or streamed live at www.2dayfm1031.com with live video available at DangerFootball.com/Watch.

Hastings College: Schadwinkel Resigns as Head Wrestling Coach

After leading the Bronco wrestling program to one of its best conference finishes in school history by finishing third, Head Coach Mike Schadwinkel has announced his resignation.

“I am very appreciative for the opportunity to meet my professional goals of successfully leading a collegiate wrestling program.,” Schadwinkel continued. “I wish nothing but the best for the student-athletes, the new coaches and the program.”

For the first time in the schools young history, Schadwinkel had this year’s team in position for a possible Great Plains Athletic Conference title before falling to Concordia in the final dual of the season as the Broncos finished 3rd. Coach Schadwinkel also had Jeremiah Gerl set a school record by placing fourth at nationals which is the highest ever finish for a Bronco at nationals.

“On behalf of Hastings College, I want to thank Coach Schadwinkel for his tireless service to Hastings College and to the wrestling program,” said Patty Sitorius, Hastings College Athletic Director. “We will certainly miss Mike’s commitment and leadership but know that his drive for excellence will help him to succeed in his future endeavors. Coach Schadwinkel has been given a wonderful opportunity outside of athletics and I have no doubt he will be nothing but successful.”

A search for a new head wrestling coach will begin immediately.

Huskers Top Spartans on Senior Day, 8-7

Lincoln, Neb. – The Nebraska baseball team (32-17-1, 14-6-1 Big Ten) came from behind to win the rubber match against Michigan State (27-21, 9-12 Big Ten), 8-7, at Hawks Field on Sunday afternoon.

Sophomore left-hander Jake McSteen improves to 4-0 this season after 2.1 innings of relief in the series finale. Junior left-hander Jake Meyers made his 12th start of the season and threw 2.2 innings, giving up five runs, four of which were earned. Robbie Palkert (3.0 innings) and Chad Luensmann (1.0 inning) came out of the bullpen, with Luensmann earning his eighth save of the 2017 campaign.

Jake Schleppenbach was among the group honored before the game as part of Senior Day recognition in front of the 6,232 fans in attendance. Schleppenbach had a career-high four hits, helping NU to 15 hits for the game. Ben Miller and Scott Schreiber also produced multi-hit games for the Big Red.

Nebraska raced out to a 1-0 lead after the first inning when Miller's single drove in Angelo Altavilla. The Spartans responded in the second frame with one run of their own. NU broke the tie in the bottom of the second with two runs on four hits. Luis Alvarado and Schleppenbach reached on singles, and advanced to second and third on a balk. Brison Cronenbold and Altavilla singled in back-to-back at-bats to drive in a pair of runs.

MSU opened the top of the third with back-to-back home runs, and scored four altogether in the inning. The Spartans added one run in the fourth, but the Huskers scored three of their own to tie the score at 6-6. With the bases loaded, Schreiber ripped a ground-rule double, and Miller's sacrifice fly added one more run.

Nebraska added two runs in the sixth inning. Schreiber got to third base with two outs, and Miller's singled brought him home. Luke Roskam launched a double to left field, which scored Miller. Michigan State added one run in the seventh, but couldn't tie the game in the eighth or ninth.

The Huskers travel to Penn State this week for their final Big Ten series of the regular season. The opener of the three-game series is scheduled for Thursday at 5:30 p.m. (CT).
