McCook, Nebraska—Congratulations to Ashley Vontz, MSN, APRN, FNP-C, former Community Hospital nurse and new McCook Clinic nurse practitioner, who recently was chosen as one of the Nebraska Action Coalition’s 40 Under 40 honorees.

 

The Nebraska Action Coalition (NAC)-Future of Nursing’s 4th biennial award for emerging nurse leaders provides needed recognition of young nurses across the state. These nurse leaders, all under the age of forty, are the future of nursing, health, and healthcare in Nebraska.

 

Vontz was recognized for her unique contributions to leadership within the nursing profession through: clinical practice, education and teaching, administrative leadership, research, writing/publishing, policy involvement/self-governance, mentoring, and/or healthcare innovation.

 

She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing through Nebraska Methodist College’s accelerated nursing program in 14 months. She worked as a nurse for the past seven years throughout Nebraska including the Nebraska Heart Institute, Crete Area Medical Center, and most recently, Community Hospital. Vontz recently graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center with a Master of Science in Nursing degree. She is Board Certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner.

 

In describing her new role as a nurse practitioner, she said, “I completed the majority of my clinical hours within McCook Clinic. I feel like I have a wonderful relationship with the current providers and staff. I look forward to continue serving McCook and the surrounding communities in a different role. Being born, raised, and still living in rural Nebraska, I have always had a passion caring for the rural population. It is my roots, and I want to continue to ensure those just like my loved ones have access to the best health care possible. I look forward to caring for my patients across the lifespan in the clinic,” she added. She and her husband, Chris, who is the co-superintendent at Heritage Hills Golf Course, have two young sons.

 

She will be honored at an awards celebration during the NAC sponsored Leadership Conference in Lincoln in early November.

On 5-7-2019, at approximately 08:16 hours the Scottsbluff Police Department was dispatched to the intersection of West 27th Street and Avenue D in reference to an injury motor vehicle accident.  A 2010 Nissan Altima driven by sixteen year old Cedees Hernandez and a 2012 Chevrolet Impala driven by Kimberly Marquez age fifty two collided in the intersection. Both drivers are Scottsbluff residents.  Marquez was headed eastbound on 27th Street.  Hernandez was attempting to turn left onto West 27th Street to head westbound from Avenue D.  Hernandez had a stop sign at her location.  A trash truck turned southbound from West 27th Street onto Avenue D just prior to the wreck.  Hernandez reported the trash truck obstructed her vision.  The vehicles collided in the intersection.  Marquez was transported to Regional West Medical Center for treatment for non-life threatening injuries.  Both vehicles required towing from the scene. No citations were issued on scene.

On 04/30/2019 at approximately 1310 hours, Scottsbluff Police Department responded to HWY 26 and East 27TH Street for a reported injury accident. The investigation concluded a pickup driven by Sheryl McLean, failed to yield to a pickup pulling a livestock trailer driven by Pamela Joern. McLean had been Eastbound on HWY 26 and was attempting to turn left onto East 27TH Street. Joern had been Westbound on HWY 26. Both vehicles and stock trailer sustained substantial damage and required towing from the scene. As a result of the crash, Joern collided with the power control box that operates the traffic signals, causing the signals to lose power. The intersection is considered a “4-Way Stop”, indicated by stop signs and traffic cones until the signals are back in service.

Last week the McCook Community College volleyball program reached a milestone of sorts when the seventh of seven graduating sophomores signed a letter of intent to continue playing volleyball – “Seven for Seven” as MCC Coach Hayley Kobza is calling the journey that has landed all seven of her sophomores scholarships to continue playing the sport after they graduate from MCC.

Those seven sophomores include Ashley Carson, Hanna Emerson, Ryan Maddera, Onyessah Rocha, Brooklyn Evans, Haley Jacobsen and Ty Johnson.

These players were part of a sophomore squad helping lead the Lady Indians to back-to-back 20-win seasons for the first time this century and also helped MCC capture its first Nebraska Community College Athletic Conference Championship in 38 years and finished the season at 21-14, which included wins against two top-20 ranked opponents.

Of the seven MCC players, two are former high school teammates who were “discovered” at MCC during an open tryout in 2016 will play Division I volleyball. Two other MCC teammates will move on to play for the same team, one will play for a Division II program and four will play for National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) schools. Two are headed to South Carolina, two are headed to Missouri, one is going to Louisiana, one to Texas and one will play in Kansas.

Here’s a summary of the players, their season highlights and where they’re headed:

Ashley Carson, Ord, will continue her volleyball career as a setter at Division 2 Coker College in Hartsville, South Carolina. One of three co-captains on the team, she was named to the all-Region IX volleyball team, had 1,268 sets – the most in Region IX, and sixth best among all setters in the nation. In addition Carson had 37 service aces, 237 digs, 40 blocks and 56 kills. She was also named to the Omaha World-Herald all-Nebraska team for players from two-year colleges.

Hannah Emerson, a 6-2 middle blocker from Greeley West High School in Colo., will play at NCAA Division I Coastal Carolina in Conway, South Carolina. She received honorable mention on the Omaha World-Herald All Nebraska team. She played in 35 matches this season and her block numbers were in the top 10 in the Region IX South Division in the four major blocking categories. She assisted on 106 blocks, tops in the division, was second in total blocks with 124, second with 0.94 blocks per set, and ninth in solo blocks with 18. Her block assist numbers were ninth most in the nation. This fall, Emerson’s Chanticleers will play the University of Nebraska on Sept. 21 at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.

Ryan Maddera 6-1, who played outside hitter and middle for the Indians will play setter at Division 1 Southeast Louisiana in Hammond, La. Like her high school teammate Emerson, both came to MCC for an open tryout and two years later both earned scholarships to play volleyball this Fall at the Division 1 level. Maddera played in 35 matches this past season for the Lady Indians and recorded 398 kills, 228 digs, 16 solo blocks, 73 total blocks and 42 service aces. She ranked fourth among hitters in the Region IX South division in total kills, her 3.18 kills per set ranked seventh, and total blocks ranked 14th. She also received honorable mention for the Omaha World-Herald all-Nebraska team.

Brooklyn Evans, a 5-7 libero from Ogden, Utah, who converted from setter after her freshman season, will continue her career at NAIA Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Mo. Evans, named co-captain in August, played in 35 matches for the Lady Indians leading the team in digs with 321 (2.43 per game). That total ranked ninth among players in the Region IX South Division. She also had 98 assists (10th most in the division) and 37 service aces (ranked 11th in the region). Evans received honorable mention for the Omaha World-Herald all-Nebraska team. She will continue playing her libero/defensive position for the Vikings.

Haley Jacobsen is a 5-9 middle blocker/right side hitter from Chatfield High School in Littleton Colo., who will join MCC teammate Brooklyn Evans at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Mo. Jacobsen played in 25 matches for the Lady Indians where she had 78 kills, 41 digs, and 50 total blocks. Her blocks per set total (0. 66) was 11th best in among players competing in the Region IX South Division. At Missouri Valley College, she expects to continue playing right side where she spent most of her time this past season.

Ty Johnson, a 5-8 outside hitter from Conroe, Texas returns to her home state to play volleyball at Wiley College in Marshall, Texas. Johnson, one of three co-captains, played in all 35 matches and had 227 kills on the season, 45 service aces, 97 digs, and 93 blocks. She ranked second in the south sub-region in block assists (84) and was fourth in hitting percentage (.261). She received honorable mention for the Omaha World-Herald all-Nebraska team. Johnson expects to play middle for the Lady Wildcats.

Onyessah Rocha, 5-5 libero from Topeka, Kan. returns to her home state to play for NAIA Ottawa University where she will play for the Braves, who won the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament Championship and earned the program its sixth trip (fourth straight appearance), at the NAIA National Tournament. Rocha expects to compete for the starting libero position.

 

ALL SEVEN OF McCook Community College’s volleyball sophomores have now signed on to continue their volleyball careers at the next level. Pictured are (front row from left): Onyessah Rocha, Ty Johnson, Ashley Carson. (Back row): Haley Jacobsen, Hannah Emerson, Coach Hayley Kobza, Ryan Maddera and Brooklyn Evans.
