Tekamah-Herman had a short week of action with two games cancelled due to wet fields over the last week.

Games at Yutan/Mead on Sept. 19 and at West Point-Beemer and Sept. 24 were called off due to the rains.

The action they were able to get in, however, resulted in a 2-1 showing at the Arlington Invite on Saturday, Sept. 21.

The day began with a 7-4 loss to Raymond Central, but the Tigers rebounded in an explosive way, blasting Columbus Lakeview 12-0 in three innings before shutting out Cass County Central 4-0 to place fifth in the eight-team meet.

Maggie Sheets blasted a solo homer over the centerfield fence against Lakeview, her second round-tripper of the season and the Tigers’ sixth.

Tekamah-Herman was scheduled to kick off their run through the 2019 East Husker Conference tournament as the number-three seed, taking on Highway 91 at 9 a.m. on Curt Ray Field last Saturday. Defending champion NEN, the Wisner-Pilger, Pender, BRLD cooperative, had the top seed. Logan View/Scribner-Snyder was seeded second.

On Tuesday, Oct. 1, the Tigers were slated to visit Madison for an EHC contest. Omaha Mercy visits Carson Field Thursday night before the Tigers wrap up the regular season on Saturday at the Yutan Invitational.

Class C District 1 tournament action starts Wednesday, Oct. 9, at Arlington. In addition to the Tigers and the host school, other clubs in the bracket include Bishop Neumann, Fort Calhoun, Logan View/Scribner-Snyder, Wahoo and Yutan/Mead. Official pairing are scheduled to be released by the Nebraska School Activities Association on Oct. 7.

The district tournament champion advances to the Class C state tournament, set for Oct. 16-18 at the Bill Smith Complex in Hastings.
