10th anniversary of Iowa co-ed track meet

Sports

May 22nd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

The state co-ed track meet turns ten years old this week and organizers says it is a tradition that will continue. Prior to 2005, the  Iowa High School Athletic Association and the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union held their state meets on separate weekends. That all changed in 2005 and the Iowa High School Championships has become one of the biggest track meets in the country. Dave Anderson of the IAHSAA, says merging the two meets was discussed for a few years before it actually happened. Anderson says the meet has been so successful there is no chance of returning to the old format.

This weeks meet will be the final one for Anderson who is retiring on June 30th after 25 years with the Association. Mike Dick, executive director of the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, says the state meet is a cooperative effort between the two governing bodies. Dick says the coed meet has been more successul than he had hoped it would be, and he sees the format continuing into the future.

The first of three days of competition at Drake Stadium begins this (Thursday) morning with action in Class 1A and 4A.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The San Antonio Spurs turned on the jets and blew by the Oklahoma City Thunder 112-77 to take a 2-0 advantage in the Western Conference final. Tony Parker led the way with 22 points and Danny Green added 21 on seven 3-pointers.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP)— Indiana’s Paul George suffered a concussion in Tuesday night’s playoff loss to Miami and his status for the rest of the series is up in the air. George will have to undergo NBA-mandated testing before he’s cleared to play again.

CHICAGO (AP) — Jeff Carter scored three of Los Angeles’ six straight goals, and the L.A. Kings beat the Chicago Blackhawks 6-2 to knot the NHL Western Conference final at one game apiece. The Blackhawks won their first seven home playoff games this year, but the Kings skated right by Chicago after the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks took an early 2-0 lead.

CLEVELAND (AP)— The Cleveland Indians finished a three-game sweep of AL Central-leading Detroit in most unusual fashion. Al Albuquerque balked home Asdrubal Cabrera in the bottom of the 13th inning to give Cleveland an 11-10 win over Detroit at Progressive Field.

DETROIT (AP)— And don’t look for Prince Fielder back in Detroit for the first time since he was acquired by the Texas Rangers. The portly first baseman is scheduled to be examined Thursday by a specialist after missing four games because of a herniated disk in his neck and will miss at least the opener of the Rangers’ weekend series in Motown.

St. Louis Cardinals baseball news

Cardinals beat Diamondbacks 3-2 in 12 innings

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Arizona shortstop Chris Owings threw wildly to the plate on a bases-loaded grounder in the 12th inning, allowing Matt Holliday to score the winning run in the St. Louis Cardinals’ 3-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday night. The Cardinals cut down the go-ahead run at the plate in the 10th on Daniel Descalso’s perfect relay throw from down the left field line to nail Ender Inciarte trying to score from first on Paul Goldschmidt’s two-out double.

Holliday walked off Trevor Cahill to start the 12th. Matt Adams doubled and Yadier Molina was walked intentionally. Allen Craig hit a grounder and Owings had plenty of time for a force play of the plate but his throw eluded catcher Miguel Montero. Seth Maness allowed a hit in the 12th for the Cardinals.

Wacha leaves after getting hit by foul in dugout

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha was taken out after getting struck on the right elbow by a foul liner while sitting in the dugout in the sixth inning against Arizona. The team said the rookie was taken out for precautionary reasons with a bruised elbow on Matt Adams’ foul liner leading off the bottom of the sixth Wednesday. The Cardinals led 1-0. Wacha allowed two hits in six scoreless innings, ending a run of five straight outings of seven or more innings by the St. Louis rotation. Cardinals recall OF Robinson, option Butler

*******

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals have added bench experience, recalling outfielder Shane Robinson from Triple-A Memphis. Rookie outfielder Joey Butler was optioned to Memphis in moves announced before Wednesday night’s game against Arizona. Robinson batted .371 in 18 games in the minors and hit .524 against left-handed pitchers. He had multihit games in six of his last eight starts, including three hits Tuesday night at Colorado Springs.

Robinson was 2 for 20 to start the year, with 11 pinch hit appearances, before being sent to the minors on April 27. He had 144 at-bats in 99 games last year for St. Louis, batting .250 with two homers and 16 RBIs. Butler’s contract was purchased from Memphis on May 9. He was 0 for 5 with three strikeouts and a walk and three appearances as a pinch hitter.

Chiefs sign quarterback Murray to contract

Sports

May 22nd, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs have signed quarterback Aaron Murray, their fifth-round pick, leaving only first-round pick Dee Ford among their unsigned players from this year’s draft. The Chiefs announced the signing Wednesday. They open a three-day rookie minicamp Saturday.

Murray was considered a first-round talent a year ago, but he had this past season cut short by a torn ligament in his knee. The former Georgia star is also considered small for the position, standing 6-foot and weighing about 200 pounds.

Still, the Chiefs believe Murray could push second-year pro Tyler Bray for the No. 3 job, and perhaps even supplant Chase Daniel as the backup to starter Alex Smith.
