MEN’S AND WOMEN’S GOLF

The men’s golf team hosted the Nye Intercollegiate last weekend at the Wooster Country Club. The Nye Intercollegiate is the first of two scoring events that will make up the final standings in the NCAC.

The Fighting Scots finished in fifth place out of nine teams behind a total score of 637. Their score of 331 on Saturday tied them for fifth place behind rival Wittenberg University, Ohio Wesleyan University, Denison University and Allegheny College.

Wooster came closer to the top three with a 306 shooting performance on Sunday, led by Blake Sword ’12 and his one-under 71. The Scots are now nine strokes out of the top three.

Last weekend the women’s golf team hosted the first leg of the North Coast Athletic Conference Championships. Play was held at the Wooster Country Club, which is a par-72 course. The Scots placed third out of the six-team field.

Rainey Sullivan ’14 posted the Fighting Scots’ best score of the weekend with a 92 on Saturday. She followed up this score with a second round score of 105, giving her a total of 197 for the weekend. Leading the team’s two-day score was Janet Zahorsky ’12, who posted a 99 in round one and a 96 in round two, giving her a total score of 195 for the weekend. Next week the Fighting Scots will compete in the second part of the NCAC tournament.

 

NFL

Although U.S. District Judge Susan Nelson forced the NFL to lift its lockout on Monday, allowing players to return to team facilities, the players that were allowed in were told that they could not work out. According to ESPN.com, the league issued a statement asking for players to be “treated with courtesy and respect,” but also saying that they need “a few days to sort this out.”

While the order from Nelson should be seen as reason for optimism about the state of the coming season, there is still a long process from this point on if there is going to be football this fall.

 

MLB

Despite some early season struggles, the Boston Red Sox have climbed back into the AL Eastern Conference over the last week with a five-game winning streak. After losing the first six games of the season the Red Sox swept the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim last weekend.

The Cleveland Indians started off the week atop the American League Central Division with a one-and-a-half game lead over the Kansas City Royals and the Detroit Tigers. Today the Indians will start a division series against the Tigers.
