BOMBERS MAROON…The Brookings Bombers Maroon rallied for a big win Tuesday at Yankton – the repercussions may have carried over into Wednesday’s sweep of Sioux Falls West – scores were 10-0 in six innings, and 16-7 in five.
Trevor Berreth earned the win in game two with help from Ryan Miley. Tyler Kreutner had two doubles and scored four runs, Drew Cole had two hits and two runs scored, and Cody Niklason and Eric Sell each had two hits and two RBI.
Jacob Schoon threw a complete-game one-hitter for the win in game one. Miley scored three times, with Sean Sullivan scoring twice and Kreutner driving in two with a triple.
Head coach Alec Johnson says he noticed something different after the Bombers came back to edge Yankton. 97625 :20 "got a sweep".
The Bombers play in this weekend’s Renner tournament – Johnson says it’s a chance to make a pre-state tourney statement. 97626 :19 "until Sunday night".
Brookings plays Sioux Falls Friday night, have a second pool game Saturday, and play Post 307 Sunday. The pool winner plays for the tourney title Sunday night.

SDSU GOLF SKED…The third annual Jackrabbit Fall Invitational highlights the 2014 South Dakota State men’s and women’s fall schedules.
The Jackrabbits schedules have them traveling to six states for five events each in September and October.
For the men’s team, the Jacks open the season at the Whistling Straits Intercollegiate in Sheyboygan, Wis., Sept. 1-2. The Whistling Straits has hosted the 2010 and 2004 PGA Championships and the 2007 U.S. Senior Open and is the future site of the 2015 PGA Championship and 2020 Ryder Cup.
For the second year in a row, the Jackrabbit women’s team opens its season in Normal, Ill., in the Redbird Invitational at the Illinois State University Golf Course Sept. 7-8. SDSU then makes its first appearance ever at the Oregon State Invitational at Trysting Tree Golf Club in Corvallis, Ore., Sept. 15-16.
The teams return home Sept. 22-23 for the third annual Jackrabbit Fall Invitational at Minnehaha Country Club in Sioux Falls. Both teams won last year’s invitational.

TENNIS COACHES HONORED…Gayle Klein, who coached tennis at Mitchell High School for 27 years, was selected as one of two former coaches to receive the 2014 South Dakota Tennis Achievement Award, given out annually by the South Dakota Tennis Association.
The other is Tim Mulhair, of Yankton. The pair will be recognized at the South Dakota Tennis Hall of Fame induction ceremony July 27th in Sioux Falls. The ceremony will be during the Asfoa/Clayton SD Adult Open tennis tournament.
This year's Hall of Fame selections are Terry Jordre, of Aberdeen, and Bob Fishback, of Brookings.

DELANY MOVING… Sioux Falls Skyforce head coach Pat Delany is moving on to the NBA.
Charlotte Hornets General Manager Rich Cho says the team has added Delany as an assistant coach under head coach Steve Clifford.
Delany spent last season as head coach of the Skyforce, the NBA Development League affiliate of the Miami Heat. He led the team to a 31-19 record.
Before coming to the Skyforce, Delany served as the Heat's advance scout for six seasons from 2007-13. He was Miami's video coordinator for four seasons from 2003-07 following one season as a video intern.

IVAN SCRAMBLE…The Sioux Valley football program will host the "Ivan Scramble" golf event July 19th at Meadow Creek in Volga.
Head coach Dan Hughes says registration starts at 9:00am, with golf to wrap up about 3:00pm. That’s when the auction of donated items takes place.
Hughes says part of the proceeds will help outfit an anticipated record number of youth football players. 97621 :23 "a great experience".
Another portion of the proceeds will go toward purchase of video equipment. 97622 :17 "how to improve".
For more details, or to register, golfers may call the Meadowcreek course clubhouse in Volga.

BASEBALL REPLAY…Former USA Today major league baseball writer Mel Antonen was a skeptic of instant replay, but says it’s working well.
Antonen now appears on Baltimore, and Washington, pre-game shows – and does a show on satellite radio. He says replay hasn’t slowed games that much. 97623 :29 "on the field".
Antonen says the system has flaws – such as managers who stall on the field while assistant coaches decide if a call should be challenged. 97624 :17 "and league officials".
Antonen says he was at Metropolitan Stadium, and the Metrodome, for the first two All-Star games played in Minnesota. This time, he’ll be in a Washington-area radio studio while the game’s going on at Target Field.
The South Dakota native says, even though he’s on satellite radio, he gets calls from South Dakotans who want to talk about the Twins, or baseball in general.

COLLEGE SPORTS…NCAA President Mark Emmert says college athletes should receive "scholarships for life."
Emmert also told a Senate panel scholarships should also cover full cost of attending college, not just the basics.
Emmert listed seven changes he favors in testimony before the Senate Commerce Committee. He said he hopes some will come about if Division I schools decide to remake their decision-making structure in the coming weeks.
Emmert said he feels college sports "works extremely well for the vast majority" and the overall current model of amateurism should be preserved.
But North Carolina football player Devon Ramsey says there’s a chasm in college sports. 97627 :08 "profit margins".
Committee chair Sen. Jay Rockefeller wonders if dominant college programs haven’t turned athletics into cash cows. 97628 :11 "word amateurism".
The hearing comes as the NCAA faces pressure from multiple fronts to reform how athletes are treated and compensated.
