WAYNE- In the Class B American Legion Baseball State Tournament it looked by all accounts that the Alliance 1st National Spartans were poised for a run at the title after sweeping the Area 7 District Tournament. 

However, a first round loss 10 nothing to Hickman set the 1st National Spartans in the elimination bracket where they would have to battle back in order to get back into contention. 

Cullen Papenhagen threw a complete game shutout allowing just four hits on six strikeouts. Papenhagen had an efficient outing throwing just 88 pitches in the complete game. 

The loss exposed Alliance to the elimination bracket where they would face a Bennington squad coming off a tough pitching duel loss to McCook 1-0. 

Bennington Post 226 saw the ball well against Trevor Dubray as they racked up seven hits bringing in four runs in his seven innings of work for the 1st National Spartans. 

While Post 226 countered with Cooper Prososki who no-hit Alliance fanning 10 batters in his seven innings on the rubber. Prososki did walk two batters, but the win sets up a match-up with Schwisow Construction for Bennington. 

Alliance ends its season with a record of 38-6 under first year head coach Carlos Palomo. 

The Alliance Bulldogs 6 foot 3 inch Junior Middle Blocker signs going into her second to last season with Alliance with the Iowa State Cyclones. 

Hopp who has made noise on the summer volleyball circuit hopped on the opportunity to ink with the 14 year head coach of the Cyclones and former Husker Christy Johnson-Lynch. 

Hopp was a beast in her Sophomore season with the Bulldogs finishing with 100 block and adding 83 kills and 45 digs. 

Alliance will be stacked with D-1 talent this year as Senior Emersen Cyza has already committed to Wyoming after this season, as the Bulldogs will make a push for a Class B state championship.

Arapahoe, NE - The Arapahoe Warriors would start off the Football Game scoring two unanswered Touchdowns through the air, before Elm Creek would get on the board with a Touchdown of their own. Arapahoe started the game out strong defensively keeping Elm Creek out of the end zone multiple times throughout the game.  Elm Creek would score three unanswered touchdowns to make it 32-26 late in the fourth quarter.  Elm Creek was faced with a 4th down with just under a minute left to play, but the defense from Arapahoe gave Elm Creek fits as the Warriors would hang on to defeat the Buffalos.
