Perone leaves Omaha Benson’s basketball program for assistant coaches job at Hastings

Omaha Benson girls basketball coach Jon Perone was hired as an assistant women’s coach at Hastings College, leaving the Bunnies after leading them to their first Class A state championship in March. Perone led Benson to its first state tournament berth in 16 years back in 2013 and last season, his seventh with the program, he coached the Bunnies to a 26-2 record, which included a 19-game win streak.

Big turnover for the final four teams in Class A from last season.  Only one coach remains with his team and that’s fourth place finisher, Lincoln Northeast with Steve Bartek. Kip Colony of Millard West, took an assistant principal’s job at Millard South. Marc Kruger, who coached Bellevue West to state runner-up finishes the past two seasons, replaced Colony at Millard West, which finished third.

“Coach Perone has been diligent in building Benson High’s girls basketball into a championship level program,” said Hastings Head Coach Carrie Hofstetter, whose team advanced to the quarterfinals of the NAIA Division II Women’s Basketball Tournament in 2014. “His ability to teach the game, his desire to perfect his craft, and his competitive drive are all attributes that will be extremely valuable to our program moving forward. Having coached the Pinnacle Bank AAU team with Jon last summer, I am already familiar with and aware of his strengths and am confident he will hit the ground running. I am absolutely thrilled to have him join our staff.”

South sweeps both boys and girls matches at Shrine Soccer Classic

Both South teams won 2-0 matches in the Nebraska Shrine Soccer Classic on Saturday at Nebraska-Omaha’s Caniglia Field.  The field has turf that is designed for soccer and is considered one of the best soccer playing surfaces in the country.

Paige Phipps of Millard West scored first to put the South girls on the board in the first half with an unassisted goal and game MVP Natalie Johnson of Omaha Skutt added the insurance with a second half goal. Elkhorn South’s Alex Thiem had six saves to earn the win in goal. Lincoln Lutheran’s Tara Ziegelbein turned aside  nine shots for the North squad.

In the boys game, Millard South’s Scott Botkin scored to put the South up 1-0 after taking a pass from Omaha South’s Michael Jaime. Elkhorn South’s Brandon Roarty scored the South’s second goal, with an assist coming from Lincoln Southwest’s Justin Wiley assisted.  Crete goalie Mitch Siedfhoff made five saves and Hastings’ Christian Lomax stopped seven as they two combined for a South shutout.

Creighton Prep senior QB leads North to win in Shrine Bowl game

Easton Stick, the former Creighton Prep QB star, threw for 124 yards and ran for 94 and a touchdown in the North’s 30-7 win in the 56th annual Shrine Bowl football game.  Stick was named the offensive player of the game.  QB Brad Brazeal threw for 123 yards and a touchdown as he and Stick combined for 21 of 30 passing for 247 yards and two touchdowns.

Wide receiver RJ Urzendowski tied a Shrine Bowl record with eight catches for 112 yards. He caught a 34 yard TD with just over six minutes to play from Brazeal. Urzendowski and Stick, teammates at Creighton Prep, will play together at North Dakota State.

Jalen Allison of Papillion-La Vista had an interception, three tackles and two pass breakups, and was named defensive player of the game.
