Weekend Sports Wrap
WEEKEND SPORTS WRAP
Golf: Let the debate continue. Is Tiger back? Or was yesterday’s win just another blip in the “new” Tiger Woods? For the third time in the last seven months, Tiger Woods won a tournament. It wasn’t a major tournament that Woods covets, but it was a huge victory at the AT&T National ahead of the next major, the British Open, in two weeks.
Track & Field: To run-off or not to run-off? That has been the question for the past week for American sprinters, Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh. Felix and Tarmoh were scheduled to compete in a run-off in the 100 meters as a result of their tie for the third spot on the USA Olympic team. The run-off came after much discussion due to USA Track & Field not having an adequate tie-breaker rule in place. However, late last night, Sports Illustrated was reporting that the Tarmoh was not keen to competing in the run-off. If that is the case, there will be a coin-flip to determine who gets the third spot on the 100 meter team.
NASCAR: Another week. Another winner. This week, Brad Keselowski took the Quaker State 400 in Kentucky with a fuel-saving victory. The win moves Keselowski up to third in the Sprint Cup standings.
Penn State: Might there be more trouble brewing for Penn State? According to a report from CNN, Penn State officials knew in 2001 of a “shower incident” involving Jerry Sandusky. At the time, officials proceeded to handle the matter in-house, according to the story.
BASEBALL: The Yakima Bears didn’t quite finish off the week the way they started. After starting the week with three wins versus one loss, the Bears dropped games to the Tri-City Dust Devils and the Spokane Indians. They continue their series tonight with the Indians at home with first pitch at 7:05pm.
Meanwhile, the Tri-City Dust Devils had a positive weekend with wins over the Boise Hawks and Yakima Bears. It was good finish after starting last week with a 1-3 record. The Dust Devils host the Hawks for two more games before heading out on the road for a three-game road trip.
Walla Walla Sweets finished off June with a two-game split with the Bellingham Bells. The Sweets took the first game on Friday night 10-2 but dropped the Saturday game to the Bells, 5-1.
