NORTH PLATTE – Kearney’s GNAC Championship was special for a number of reasons for head coach Drake Beranek.
It was his first at the helm of the Kearney program. It was also revenge on Norfolk for their loss in the GNAC Championship game in 2016.
Kearney had been close a number of times since their last title in 2007. They lost to Norfolk in the ’09, ’14 and ’16 championship games and also came up short in the title game to North Platte in 2012.
Kearney is now 7-3 on the year. They host North Platte on Friday.
