The Benson Bobcats had a great varsity baseball team this year. Made it to the state finals in their conference. One of those players that made it such a success was outfielder Antonio Rigney, and he's signed his intent to play for Hastings College in Nebraska.

The Broncos are gaining one of Benson’s best players this year. Antonio had a .574 on-base percentage, and once on base he was a threat, compiling 31 stolen bases. He was solid at the plate with a .458 average, 44 hits, and 13 runs batted in.

I spoke with Broncos head coach Joel Schipper about his new recruit.

"We are extremely excited with the signing of Antonio. He holds all the physical abilities - speed, bat, glove - to have great success at the next level. On top of that he is the ultimate competitor and will do whatever is necessary to help his team win. We could not be happier Antonio is a Bronco!"

In today's paper I filed a story on Benson's newest business King Music Supply/Five Seventeen.

The new shop has three businesses in one, the music store run by Scott Sr. a tattoo shop run by junior, and Kreps as artist of a custom press-on nail boutique.

“My dad, he’s always wanted me to open a tattoo shop and was willing to fund me, but I wanted him to be a part of it, so I brought up the idea of selling musical supplies,” Scott Jr. said about starting the business. “He liked it, and I’m loving it a lot.”

“We plan to sell Just about anything to do with music.” Scott Sr. said. “We want to carry orchestra instruments of all types, horns, trumpets, guitars, amps, strings, things like that. I want to offer guitar lessons too.”
