ESPN to feature Herbert
NHRA 2Day will air a feature regarding Doug Herbert and the Snap-on team`s newly formed friendship with Marines across the country this weekend.
In a way to give back, stemming from Herbertâ€™s admiration for their duties, he has hosted more than 25 soldiers at the first three races combined and is set to have another group at next week`s O`Reilly Spring Nationals at Houston Raceway Park on April 9.
The feature will run Sunday, April 3 at 11:30 a.m. (ET) on ESPN2. So tune in and check out a great story on a great friendship.
East Lincoln socccer
On Monday, the Lady Mustangs dismantled Berry Academy 8-0.
Ali Fisher and Christina McClean turned in huge games, with each netting two goals and dishing one assist.
Jessica Glenn and Jennifer Redman had two assists apiece. Glenn also had a goal. Alex Haugen, Anna Cole and Kim Scercy each chipped in a goal. Erin Smith was credited with the shutout.
In a torrential downpour on Tuesday, the Lady Mustangs fell to Charlotte Catholic 4-0.
Play went back and forth in the first half. In the second half, with five minutes to go, Catholic hit a penalty kick off the cross bar and post. The somewhat flukish goal put them ahead 2-0.
The Lady Cougarsâ€™ goalie made three exceptional saves to keep East Lincoln scoreless. The game was called with 20 left due to the field turning into a virtual mud pit.
North Lincoln softball
The North Lincoln Knights defeated Crest 7-6 on Tuesday behind two homeruns by Jenna Torbert.
They lost to Ashbrook 10-3 on Wednesday, but only trailed 5-3 heading into the last inning. The Lady Knights will play again on Saturday. by John Mark Brooks
