Lincoln, Neb. – Nebraska Men’s Golf Head Coach Bill Spangler announced the signing of Omaha native Ben Maschka to the team for the 2014-15 season on Friday.

“Ben comes from Omaha Creighton Prep, which is a great program,” Spangler said. “Ben has shown great improvement over the last two years, and will be a terrific addition to the team. He is a hard worker and will do what it takes to be a starter.”

Maschka will complete his senior season with the Junior Jays this spring as Creighton Prep seeks its third consecutive Nebraska Class A team title.

The Omaha native finished second individually at the 2013 Class A state championship in May after falling to teammate Carson Schaake in a sudden-death playoff. The pair tied at 141 at Pioneers Golf Course as Creighton Prep fired 568 as a team over 36 holes, which is the second-best score in tournament history.

At the Nebraska Men’s Match Play Championship in June, 13th-seeded Maschka advanced to the semifinals before falling to eventual champion Andy Sajevic, 2 and 1. Maschka won four matches in the 64-player bracket at Elks Country Club in Columbus, Neb.

Maschka competed at the 2013 Lockton Kansas City Junior in July, where he tied for 10th. He shot 8-over-par 224 over three rounds at Creekmoor Golf Club in Raymore, Mo.

Maschka also appeared in the Nebraska Junior Match Play and Nebraska Junior Amateur during the summer of 2013. A No. 7 seed at the Junior Match Play, Maschka advanced to the quarterfinals before falling to Cameron Bargell in 19 holes. Maschka won two matches in the 32-player bracket at the Country Club of Lincoln before being eliminated. At the Junior Amateur, Maschka tied for 14th with a 12-over-par 231 total over three rounds at Oakland Golf Club in Oakland, Neb.
