Home meets in bold

Near misses mark state meet

May 22, 23- The Tigers didn't pick up any hardware at the 2009 state track and field meet, but they did come close in a few events. Drew Hines needed to clear one more height to place in the pole vault, but had to settle with a tie of his season's best vault of 12-6. Ethan Bauer flirted with the triple jump finals, but ended up 12th. Click here to see pictures of NBC's boys and girls from Day One and Day Two of the state meet.

NBC third at district meet

3200 meters
Jesse Lacey will be making his second appearance at state in the 3200 meters.

May 14- The Tigers finished third in the team standings of the C-4 district track meet at Oakland-Craig. Ethan Bauer qualified for state in the long jump and triple jump after finishing second in each event. Tyler Going also qualified in two events after winning the 800 in a personal best time and placing second in the pole vault. Also qualifying for state was Drew Hines (PV), Adam Gilligan (110 hurdles) and Jesse Lacey (3200).

The NBC mile relay also blew away the field while cutting three seconds off its season's best time to 3:35. However, the team was disqualified because one of the runners was wearing white biker shorts under his uniform shorts while the rest of the team was wearing black. The DQ cost the Tiger relay the gold medal and a trip to state. NBC would have also been the team runner-up if the original finish had been allowed to stand.

NBC earns Bergan Invite title

May 5- The North Bend boys track team came away from its final regular season meet with its third invitational championship of the spring.

Tigers third in conference

Press play to see images from the meet

May 2- Ethan Bauer picked up the lone gold medal for NBC at the East Husker Conference championship meet, staying undefeated for the year. It didn't come easy, though, as Bauer needed his final jump of 42-2.25 to claim the title. Drew Hines earned a silver medal in the pole vault, clearing 12-6.

It's a winning streak...

April 21- The NBC boys track and field team made it two major meet wins in a row by capturing the Madison Invite title. NBC placed all three of its entrants in three different events, with Ethan Bauer, Jake Kroenke and Eric Kavan all placing in both the long jump and triple jump. Kroenke, Adam Gilligan and David Christensen also took half the medals in the 110m high hurdles. Kroenke was picked up his first gold medal in the 300m hurdles, and Bauer added to his collection of gold in the triple jump.

Underclassmen runners-up

April 18- A team of Tiger freshman and sophomores took runner-up honors in the Fr-So division of the Wisner-Pilger Lions Club Invite. Eli Vosler struck for gold in the shot put and silver in the discus for NBC, while Jesse Lacey won the 3200 meters and Kale Wietfeld took first in the high jump. David Christensen also had a good day, placing second in the 110 hurdles and high jump and fourth in the 300 hurdles.

Tigers crowned champions at home

April 16- After being postponed a week, NBC finally got its chance to host the Running Tiger-Cadet invite. As it turned out it was well worth the wait for the Tigers. North Bend's mile relay of Drew Hines, Adam Gilligan, Colin Murphy and Kale Wietfeld came up with its first gold medal of the year while securing the meet championship in the final event of the day. NBC topped the team standings, finishing two points ahead of runner-up Arlington. Ethan Bauer (long jump, triple jump) and Hines (pole vault with a season's best 12-6) were NBC's other gold medallists.

NBC middle of LV pack

April 14- The NBC boys took fourth place in a highly competitive field at the Logan View Invite. Though the pole vault crew didn't live up to its usual standards (except for Colin Murphy, who cleared a personal best 10-6), it still managed to score more than one-third of the Tigers points with a 2-3-4 finish from Drew Hines, Tyler Going and Murphy. Ethan Bauer picked up NBC's only gold medal with a 43-2.5 performance in the triple jump.

Tigers can't hang on at Scotus

April 3- For the majority of the Scotus Relays, NBC sat in the top two of the team standings, including holding a lead coming out of the field events. However, the Tigers couldn't sustain the success on the track and during the final three events fell to fourth overall. NBC took home first place in the high jump (Drew Hines, David Christensen and Kale Wietfeld), pole vault (Hines, Tyler Going, Colin Murphy) and triple jump (Ethan Bauer, Eric Kavan, Jake Kroenke and Brady Renter).

Vikings nip Tigers in opener

March 26- In the inaugural event on Lakeview's brand new bright blue track, the homestanding Vikings edged North Bend 76-72 to win the the triangular. Schuyler took third with 20 points. Ethan Bauer turned in perhaps the most impressive performance, winning the triple jump with a leap of 42-9.75 in blustery, cold conditions.
