Vacation from Practice

July 7, 2016
By

I think I am still correct in this.  This week and next week are hiatus weeks for high school athletes.  The IHSAA allows some form of training the rest of the year, but they do require schools to give athletes the first part of July off. This past month of June was probably crazy in your...

Last week a true legend in the field of basketball passed away.  Pat Summit of Tennessee died at the age of 64 from the effects of dementia.  As you see, I did not specify women’s basketball, because the men consider her just as much an icon as the men’s coaches.  After all, she won...

Sports writers were worried that LeBron James would lose another NBA Championship.  Of course, this did not happen.  If it had happened, he would not have been alone.  Jack Nicklaus won 18 major titles but had 19 near misses in his long golf career.

Pro Golf

Recently the U.S. Open was held at Oak Mount Country Club near Pittsburgh.  I am sure you saw some of the struggles that the pro golfers had with this course.  Nothing like hitting a ball within 6 inches of the pin just to have it roll off the green and into a sand trap....

One of the areas that the United States has always been competitive in, and in many of the recent summer Olympics has dominated, is swimming.  Most of the names we remember may or may not make the Olympics this year.  However, one name to look for is Katie Ledecky.  This young lady is a...
