  • Former LA players earn honor

    A pair of former local athletes have made the Eastern Rocky Mountain Rugby Football Union Select Side.
    Liz Dinkel and Sidney Provan were named to the Select Side team, the rugby equivalent of an All-Star team.
    Dinkel, currently attending Colorado State University, and Provan, of Colorado College, were picked from the rugby programs of several regional colleges, including such schools as University of Colorado, Air Force, Wyoming and several smaller schools in the area.
    If selected for the ERMRFU’s traveling team, Dinkel and Provan would participate in an All-Star Tournament in Kansas.

  • Arizona dumps Duke in West...

    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Derrick Williams carried Arizona in the first half, keeping the Wildcats in the game against Duke. His teammates returned the favor in the final 20 minutes with an offensive barrage that stunned the defending national champions.
    Williams scored 25 of his career-high 32 points in the first half of Arizona's 93-77 victory Thursday night, helping the Wildcats reach the final eight for the first time since 2005.
    "As a team, we came together and willed ourselves to win," said Lamont Jones, who added 16 points. "Derrick is a great player, but we all contribute."

  • Running: Big crowd drawn to Run...

    Sunday’s Run for Her Life turned into a bigger deal than race organizers anticipated, so much so that plans are being made to turn it into an annual event.
    The Run for Her Life, held on Mesa Trail behind East Park, was a 5K and 10K run, the proceeds of which went to benefit breast cancer research.
    More than 120 participants took part in the Run for Her Life, which was hosted by the local chapter of Hadassah and the Atomic City Roadrunners. It raised more than $6,000 for research.
    Alexander Romero of Los Alamos (19:28) and Sophia Torres of Cordova (21:26) were the top finishers in the 5K race, while Wayne Chick (40:42) and Erica Baron (40:49) posted the best times in the 10K race.

  • Football: Kickoffs to start on...

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The NFL will move kickoffs up 5 yards to the 35-yard line, keep touchbacks coming out to the 20 and allow the number of players in a blocking wedge to remain at two.
    Kick coverage players now will be limited to lining up 5 yards or fewer from the spot of the kickoff.
    Team owners also voted Tuesday to make all scoring plays reviewable by the replay official and referee. But they tabled a proposal to ban players launching themselves to make a tackle, and will reconsider it in May.
