Episode #3- From The Rumble To Kearney

The biggest meet of the season thus far has been the Platte River Rumble that was held less than two weeks ago. Aside from Ogallala, who made the long trip, the River Rumble mostly featured top teams from the eastern side of the state. Class A teams were slotted into the Large School division but all of the other teams had the option to run in the Large or Small School divisions. That led to some interesting match-ups with a few of the top Class B teams going head-to-head with Class A teams.
