LINCOLN, Neb. (May 31, 2018) - The Cornhusker State Games Torch Run will pass through Morrill and Scotts Bluff counties on Saturday, June 2 beginning at 11 a.m. as part of the Camp Clarke Days Parade in Bridgeport. 
 
Professional triathlete Nicole Berosek, a Bridgeport native who several years ago served as a Cornhusker State Games intern, will be among the Bridgeport Torch runners along with standout high school athletes: Jack Linders, Declan Jeffries, Dori Schneider, Marce Vasquez and Kaeli McVicker. 
 
The Bridgeport group will pass the Torch at Highway 26, mile 44, at approximately 3 p.m. to a group of decorated Gering High School athletes, including Peyton Seiler, Logan Andrews, Christian Camacho and Logan Moravec.  Both Camacho and Moravec are multi-year state cross country qualifiers.
 
National Guard runners will complete the day’s route when they arrive with the Torch at the Scottsbluff National Guard Armory at approximately 6 p.m.
