Obermueller featured in Kansas City Star article

By Rick Montgomery, Eric Adler, and Mike Hendricks

This article, reprinted by permission, originally appeared in the October 5, 2014, issue of The Kansas City Star. As this issue goes to print the Royals are up 2-0 over the Baltimore Orioles in the American League Championship Series. The third game of the series was moved to Tuesday night due to the weather in Kansas City on Monday. No team has ever lost a best of seven league championship series after opening 2-0 on the road. Two more wins, and the Royals are in, but first, a look back with an article featuring a Lincoln resident, and a man from just up the road in Smith Center.

As the final strike ignited the crowd’s roar, 12-year-old Brecken Obermueller lifted her arms high and screamed. A crazed fan with a broom in standing-room-only somehow howled just one more time and began high-fiving 100 other spectators.

The lone home meet of the year for Lincoln was called early because of the lightning. The boys were able to finish their race but the meet was canceled before the high school girls race.
