The fast paced racing action at Dawson County Raceway in Lexington, Nebraska was as good as advertised with drivers coming from Nebraska, Kansas and Iowa in attempts to punch their ticket to the winners circle on Sunday evening. 
Punching their ticket to the winners circle with feature winning drives was Josh Leonard, Anthony Roth, Jacob Olmstead, Mike Nichols and Caleb Hetrick. 
Blasting onto the scene with authority, the NeSmith Late Models returned to Dawson County Raceway with their own version of fireworks. Reigning NeSmith Late Model National Champion Josh Leonard of Gibbon did everything he could and more to hold off any and all challengers after gaining the lead in the early going of the feature evening. Leonard saw a slide job by Cory Dumpert on the second to last restart but it wasn’t enough to rattle Leonard, who stayed up on the wheel to score the feature victory. After being involved in the caution flag with very few laps remaining, Cory Dumpert of York was motivated to pilot his hot rod back onto the podium. In the waning laps, Dumpert was able to make it onto the podium with a runner-up finish. Coming from his fourth row starting position to the podium finish was Chris Buller of Henderson. Buller continued to gain confidence and got faster throughout the feature event to cash in with a third place finish. JJ Rodeman of Grand and and York’s Les Siebert rounded out the top five in the feature event. 
Leading the laps that mattered the most was Anthony Roth of Columbus during the IMCA Modified feature. Roth started in the fourth row and got shuffled off the backstretch during the early laps of the feature. Finishing strong would be an understatement to describe on the closing speed that the Roth hot rod had during the final laps to win the feature. Starting on the outside of the second row, North Platte’s Jay Steffens was the leader from the beginning of the feature until he was passed by Roth. Steffens set a blistering pace for much of the feature and forced the rest of the competitors to stay up on the wheel. Steffens was able to record the runner-up finish for his effort. Cashing in on the opportunity and his vast experience, David Murray Jr of Oberlin, Kansas found the rhythm in the final laps to move into the lead group and finish third place overall. Justin Gregg of Doniphan and Cozad’s Colton Osborn rounded out the top five finishers of the feature. 
Back in Black, Jacob Olmstead of Overton put on a dominating performance to win the IMCA Northern Sport Modified Feature. Olmstead started on the inside of the second row and led from the onset to cruise to the victory. Getting off to a fast start and then staying out of trouble was rewarding for Jacob Slough of Doniphan to earn runner-up accolades., Slough displayed great consistency throughout the feature. Veteran wheelman Robert Leonard of Gibbon had a remarkable finish to earn third place honors. Leonard started the feature in the fifth row and showcased great patience working through traffic to the podium. Grand Island’s Tyler Andreasen and Ausitn Svoboda of David City crossed the line in fourth and fifth, respectively. 
The competition was fierce during the IMCA Stock Car feature. When all the smoke cleared on the feature event, the Harlan Hustler Mike Nichols of Harlan, Iowa was the victor. Nichols started the feature on the outside of the fifth row and rode the cushion into the lead early on. During the waning laps, runner-up finisher Mikey Dancer of North Platte was closing fast on Nichols. Dancer was able to gain ground on Nichols but it wasn’t enough as the checkered flag was waved and Dancer was forced to settle with runner-up honors. Norton Nightmare Casey Woken of Norton, Kansas had a great drive in his Chevy Monte Carlo to earn third place accolades after starting in the fifth row and working through traffic. Flyin’ Farmer Kyle Clough of Wallace and Gothenburg’s Jeff Whiting rounded out the top finishers in the feature in fourth and fifth place.
Being in the right place at the right time paid off dearly for Caleb Hetrick of Grand Island. Hetrick was among the leaders for much of the feature and he was within striking distance of the leaders when the white flag was waved. Awesome Luke Wassom of Broken Bow was leading the feature when he became engaged in a battle for the lead with Zach Olmstead of Overton during the final laps. It was the battle between Wassom and Olmstead that allowed Hetrick to not only get within striking distance, but take the point and lead the lap that mattered the most. Wassom was able to recover from the battle to finish in second place. Allyn Myers of Broken Bow was able to gain ground on the leaders during the battle as well to earn a third place finish after starting on the outside of the third row. Zach Olmstead of Overton was fourth place, just in front of the hard charging Tanner Clough of Wallace­­­­­­­.

Cozad Boy Scout Troop #1189’s Jacob Engel and Evan Thome recently completed their Eagle Scout projects out at Cozad’s Bellamy Park.
The inspiration to build dugouts on the Pony League Baseball Field at Bellamy Park began two years ago. There have been no dugouts on the baseball field at Bellamy Park, so Engel and Thome decided to create and build two dugouts to ‘house’ and shelter players during games. 
The dugouts measure 24 feet long X 6 feet wide X 8 feet high.
The scouts said they researched plans on the Internet and used the dugouts at Stuckey as guides for their projects. Once they had their plans in place they completed the dugouts in about a month’s time.
“This project involved a lot more planning than I originally thought that it would,” Thome said.
“I agree with that and want to add that it entailed a lot more work than I thought that it would,” Engel noted.
The requirement for an Eagle Scout project is that a minimum of 40 hours be spent in planning and executing the project. Both felt that the construction of the dugouts required quite a bit over the required number of hours.
Both Engel and Thome agreed they had learned a lot from their projects, and concurred that they did not want to pursue a career in construction.
Engel and Thome said they were indebted to Kelly Naslund, Paulsen Inc. for the help with the metal portions of the building as well as Don Dillon from Paulsen Inc.
The scouts also expressed appreciation to the Cozad Little League Board who helped with lumberyard bills, Mead Lumber in Cozad, the Wilson Foundation and the family members who helped them with their projects.
The dugouts were completed in time for the spring Pony League season, and the scouts were pleased to see this much needed addition to the field they once played on come to fruition. Thome’s younger brother, Cooper will one day play on the field and enjoy the amenities of the dugouts.
The dugouts will also be enjoyed by high school girls’ softball teams at Cozad’s Invite on Hay Days weekend and at district tournaments when played in Cozad.
Jacob is the son of Brian & Marsha Engel and Evan is the son of and Mike and Wendy Thome of Cozad.

Despite the less than ideal conditions, the results heated up the crowd during the first outdoor meet of the season for the competitors from Lexington and Cozad that challenged for supremacy at the Hastings Tiger Invitational on Friday afternoon.
The Lexington girls and boys both finished in the runner-up position in the team races with 94 and 99 points, second only to the Northwest girls scoring 110.5 and the Vikings boys racking up 142.5 points. 
Lexington’s Madison Smith and Ajack Waikur were the lone TRIBUNE-Area tracksters to finish with three individual gold medal winning performances.
 Smith got her day started off right by going deep to the tune of 16’11.75” in the long jump to win her first gold medal of the day. Madison would then burn up the cinders to win the 400 meter dash with a time of 59.4 seconds. In the 200 meter dash, Smith was the  the victor by breaking the tape in 25.8 seconds. 
Smith finished off her day by anchoring the gold medal winning 1600 meter relay for Lexington that completed the four exchanges to win with a time of 4:15. 
Saying that Minuteman Ajack Waikur was dominant in the jumping events would be an understatment, as he won the long jump, triple jump and high jump competitions. Waikur ruled the roost in the sand by stretching past 21’4” to win the long jump and past 45’8” to win the triple jump. To finish off his field events strong, Waikur soared over 6’2” to win the high jump. 
Lady Haymaker Kennedy Berreckman started off her season not missing a beat by clearing 5’0” in the high jump to win the championship crown for the Red and Black. 
Close behind Berreckman was Lexington’s Hana Brock with a jump of 5’0” to earn the bronze medal as a result of earlier misses in the competition. Brock also was able to stretch past 34’4” to step to the top of the medal stand and win the gold in the triple jump. Brock also was third overall in the long jump with a top effort of 15’8.5”. 
In the high jump, Lexington’s Jackie Ostrom had a notable day with a fifth place winning leap of 4’6”. 
The Lady Haymaker quartet of Katelyn Calhoun, Margaret McGinnis, Abigail Nelson and Ashley Burkholder combined to circle the oval eight times to win gold with a time of 11:06. 
In the shortest relay of the day, the Cozad foursome of Brittney Aitken, Carissa Jensen, Kenzie Lee and Jercey Irish was second overall in 52.6 seconds. Lexington was fourth overall with a time of 53.8 seconds. 
Flexing her muscle in the throwing events, Minutemaid Maddi Sutton was the champion in the discus by spinning the platter past the 125’1” mark. A trio of Lady Haymakers scored big for the Red and Black in the discus as they finished third, fourth and fifth overall. Sydney Lindstedt (111’11”), Sadie Rush (111’4”) and Grace Cargill (106’11”) earned hardware for their efforts. 
In the shotput, Sutton scored a silver medal for the Minutemaids with a top effort of 34’7.25”. 
Using his speed to scorch the cinders, Dalton Schumacher of Lexington was the fastest to turn and burn in the 200 meter dash with, by breaking the tape in 23.4 seconds. In the 100 meter dash, Schumacher was able to lean at the line to earn the runner-up honors in 11.2 seconds. 
Having a great day in the sprints for Cozad with a pair of bronze medal finishes was Evan McCrickard in the 100 and 200 meter dashes with clockings of 11.5 and 24.1 seconds, respectively. 
Lexington’s Jairo Alvarez was fifth overall in the 100 meter dash with a time of 11.6 seconds. 
Putting in the most mileage, Minuteman Yanni Vasquez competed in the 1600 and 3200 meter runs. In the 1600, Vasquez was the silver medalist (4:54) and fourth overall in the eight lap affair. 
Lexington’s Nick Saiz was the silver medalist in the quarter-mile with a time of 53.5 seconds in the 400 meter dash. 
To finish his day in fine fashion, Saiz joined forces with Jairo Alvarez, Ajack Waikur and Kaleb Carpenter to finish second overall in the 1600 meter relay with a time of 3:40. 
Showcasing stellar speed, the Haymakers quartet of Miguel Gurerrero, Matthew Schuster, Noah Morales and Evan McCrickard combined to carry the baton around the oval in 47.3 seconds in the 400 meter relay. 
Doing their best to conquer the timbers, Klair Fagot was the bronze medalist in the 100 meter hurdles for Lexington in 17.3 seconds. 
Hanna Wright of Cozad was close behind Fagot by stopping the watch in 17.7 seconds to finish fifth. In the longest hurdle race of the day, Wright was third overall in 52.8 seconds. 
On the flipside, Fernando Arias of Lexington was fourth overall in the 110 meter high hurdles. 
Showing great strength and explosion in the ring, Ethan Woehrle of Lex finished in third place in the shotput with a top throw of 41’5.75”. Josh Stallbaumer of Cozad was fifth overall by launching the ironball past the 39’6.5” mark.
