first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington girls softball team advanced to the semifinals of the Class 4A Regional with a 5-3 victory over Rose Hill Monday evening and will play Clearwater today at 3 p.m. at Independence.How does one get there? Well, follow this hawk flying in the sky and…. OK, OK. To get there, courtesy of Steve Sturgis’ website, you go on U.S. 166 (there are two highways to get there, but this is the bigger 2-lane road. First you get on 75 North, turn right or East on 160 (big implement dealership on your left), U.S. 160 will turn into Main when you reach the city limits. Then you continue east until 10th Street (Jump Start on your right), turn right or south. Then you continue until you come to a sign on your right that says Arco Sports Complex and turn in at the sign.On Google maps it will take two hours and three minutes. So leave soon.Yesterday, Wellington survived a plethora of errors and did not have key senior starter Kailey Jenkins, who was out because of a medical condition. She is questionable for today’s game.Wellington beat Rose Hill thanks to a quick start. The Crusaders opened with a 1-0 lead when Shelby Hamel singled to right field with bases loaded. Unfortunately, Wellington left the bases loaded.In the bottom of the second, Wellington scored three runs, thanks in part to Carlie McComb’s sacrifice fly. Wellington led 5-1 after Shanlyn Hefley singled Ashley Collins home in the bottom of the fourth.The Crusaders then held onto dear life as Rose Hill scored two runs in the top of the fifth. In the sixth, the Rockets had girls on second and third when McComb made two key stops at third base to end the inning with the Rockets going scoreless.Wellington then had a double play in the top of seventh to preserve the win.The Crusaders will play Clearwater whom they lost to three times during the regular season. All of them were competitive games, though. Wellington 5 Rose Hill 3 Rose Hill          0 0 1 0 2 0 0 —     3  7  2Wellington       1 3 0 1 0 0 x —        5  4  5McComb.    0-3,   1 RBI.  1 run.  1bbOathout.    0-3,  1 bbHefley.       1-3,  1 bbBuck.         1-1,  1bb.  1hpHamel.       1/3,  1 RBIZimmerman.  0-3Mullen.          0-1, 1bb. 1hpP Adams.       1-2, 1 run, 1bbCollins.        0-2, 2 run, 1bbZavala.                1 runWinning pitcher — Hefley.    Losing pitcher — Wheeler Close Forgot password?

Troy Aikman interested in NFL GM role, doubts ‘stubborn’ Jerry Jones would offer Cowboys job

hkogxxrep

first_imgTroy Aikman would be interested in a move from the commentary box to an NFL front office position, though he is skeptical such an opportunity will come with the Cowboys.The Hall of Fame quarterback won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys and has not been shy about voicing his frustrations about the direction of the team with whom he spent his entire pro career. Having seen fellow former players John Elway and John Lynch, previously a colleague of Aikman’s at Fox Sports, enjoy success as general managers with the Broncos and 49ers, respectively, the 53-year-old believes a switch to a similar position could be a viable career move.MORE: Ranking the Cowboys’ Jason Garrett replacement candidates”It’s something that I guess I’ve always somewhat entertained,” Aikman told 1310 The Ticket in Dallas. “I’ve had a chance to talk with John Elway in previous years. I’ve visited with John Lynch, and the decision that he made to take on that job in San Francisco, and I’ve said many, many times, I still believe there’s another frontier for me — maybe there’s not — but I believe that there is, and I think that might very well be it.”It’s something that I think would be very challenging. I’d be giving up a lot to leave the job that I have to take on a role like that. It’s an all-consuming job and I certainly recognize that, but I think the challenge would make it worthwhile.”Now whether or not I’m ever afforded that opportunity, we’ll see, but with each year that passes, the likelihood of it happening becomes less and less,” he added. “I understand that more and more teams want to go young and kind of groom somebody that’s going to be there for the long haul, but relatively speaking, I’ve got a lot of great years left and I feel that having been in a championship locker room and knowing what that looks like, what that feels like, and then I guess my job now as a broadcaster, I’ve been in those organizations.”BENDER: Why Urban Meyer coaching the Cowboys makes sense Aikman, though, does not expect the Cowboys to grant him a chance to prove himself in the front office, due to owner Jerry Jones’ desire to remain as the franchise’s chief decision-maker. “I doubt it. I mean, I think that’s a real long shot,” Aikman said of his hopes of being employed by Dallas. “I believe that it’s unlikely that Jerry will ever bring somebody in that can help this football team in that regard just because he’s been real stubborn and steadfast, in that he’s the one in charge. “I think in a lot of ways until that changes, this team’s going to have some problems. Would he ever ask me to come be a part of it? I think that’d be a real leap of faith. I don’t envision that happening, and I don’t envision it happening at any point, quite honestly, no matter who’s in charge out there.”last_img read more

Lamar Jackson’s latest MVP performance boosts Ravens’ Super Bowl 54 odds

xyyxmympt

first_imgLamar Jackson essentially locked up the 2019 NFL MVP award with an awe-inspiring performance against the Jets Thursday night. Baltimore crushed Gang Green 42-21 as Jackson threw for a career high five touchdowns in the victory. Jackson was electric throughout the evening, setting the single season rushing record for quarterbacks early in the first half, and his play has made the Ravens the team to beat in the eyes of the oddsmakers. Baltimore is now down to +200 to win the Super Bowl.MORE: Get the latest NFL odds & betting trends from Sports Insider Lamar Jackson’s MVP oddsPrior to Thursday night’s game, Jackson was the overwhelming favorite to win the NFL MVP. At the end of October, Jackson’s MVP odds were about the same as Russell Wilson, but Jackson separated himself from the pack with a win over New England and continued his incredible play throughout November.On Thursday morning, Jackson’s NFL MVP odds were -1000, but they are off the board after thrashing the Jets last night. Online sportsbooks might not open the market back up again since Jackson is such a presumptive favorite, and he would likely be at least -2500 to win the award if betting on this prop did open one more time.Jackson’s 33 passing touchdowns are seven more than any other quarterback in the league, and his 1,100 rushing yards are more than twice as many as Kyler Murray and Josh Allen. Ravens become an even bigger Super Bowl favoriteThe Ravens were +225 to win the Super Bowl prior to last night’s game, but their dominance impressed everyone, including oddsmakers. Baltimore has now won 10 straight games after a 2-2 start, and the Ravens can lock up home field advantage throughout the playoffs with a victory in one of their last two games. They will have an additional three days of rest before taking on the struggling Browns in Week 16, and Baltimore will close out its season against archrival Pittsburgh. Baltimore will be a heavy favorite, per the NFL betting odds, in both those games. The Ravens weren’t too impressive against those division rivals earlier this year though, losing 40-25 at home to the Browns and needing to survive overtime to beat the Steelers. Provided they don’t collapse and lose their last two regular season games, Baltimore is in great position in the AFC. The conference has only three real contenders, and the Ravens would likely avoid either New England or Kansas City in the Divisional Round of the AFC Playoffs. The Patriots and Chiefs are heavy favorites to finish as the No. 2 and No. 3 seeds, while the No. 4 seed is slated to either be Houston or Tennessee.RUSH TO JUDGMENTLamar Jackson passed Michael Vick as a QB long before rushing recordNeither the Texans or Titans are seen as much of a threat though, and the Ravens would be favored by more than a touchdown if they were to meet in January. While New England’s Super Bowl odds are +450 and Kansas City’s Super Bowl odds are +700, Tennessee and Houston both have Super Bowl odds of +4000.As long as their stars stay healthy, Baltimore would likely be favored over the NFC champion if the Ravens made it to the Super Bowl too. The Ravens recently beat the favorites to win the NFC in San Francisco, and the 49ers are one of two teams in the conference with odds of less than 10-1 to win the Super Bowl. Odds on NFC teams to win the Super Bowl are longer considering the overall strength of the conference. A potential 10-win team in Minnesota or Los Angeles could be left out of the playoffs, and every potential playoff team is seen as a Super Bowl contender.  last_img read more

AV-CTL DIV Champion Crusaders to wrap up dual season tonight with Circle

ojkronpah

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — For the first time in 11 years, the Wellington High School wrestling team has won a league title, and the first time in Ark Valley Chisholm Trail League Div. IV history.Wellington secured the title two week ago when it defeated Andale 40-39 and Clearwater 49-28. Tonight, the Crusader grapplers go to Circle in Towanda at 6 p.m. to complete the AV-CTL DIV dual season.“It was completely unexpected,” said Mitch McComb, Wellington head wrestling coach of the league title. “I did not think before the season started we would have the manpower to compete for a title. A lot of good things had to go our way.”Wellington last won a league wrestling title in 2005 when it was a member of the AV-CTL DIII. Since then the Crusader grapplers have been close but had never gotten over the hump until this year.Still, with the Class 4A Regional in Rose Hill coming up in a little more than a week, Feb. 19-20, things are a little dicey at the moment on the Crusader wrestling mat.Wellington will go into the post season with two of its premiere wrestlers, Graysen DeJarnett and Jason Norris, out for the season with concussions.DeJarnett has been dealing with the concussions all season while Norris, who received a concussion earlier this year, is going into the military this summer and did not want to jeopardize his status there.Wellington is also suffering from a lightweight wrestler leaving the program last week, who had potential of going to state. McComb would not say who this athlete was but was told last Thursday in practice he didn’t want to wrestle anymore.So come Friday of next week, Wellington should have a shuffled deck in a regional that also contains: Andale, Andover Central, Augusta, Clearwater, El Dorado, Holcomb, Hugoton, Mulvane, Pratt, Rose Hill, Ulysses, Wichita Trinity and Winfield. It should be a tough regional.McComb said he is moving Aaron Schoemann from 170 to 182 and Ian Groom from 182 to 195 to replace Norris at 195.He is expecting Wellington to fill 13 of the 14 weight divisions at the regional with 152 being the only weight class open.But how many Wellington wrestlers will get to the Class 4A State Tournament in Salina, is anyone’s guess.“Nothing is a sure thing,” McComb said. “You never know what is going to happen in a regional – whether or not a light switch will go on or not.”Wellington heavyweight Miguel Lujan has as good as chance as anyone with a 31-9 record.“The thing is, Lujan has beaten everyone in his bracket and he has also lost to everyone in his bracket,” McComb said.He said Jace Lowe at 220 could be a wildcard. Lowe is currently 12-18, but he has also scored some huge upsets and is 2-2 against ranked opponents.“You just never know,” McComb said. “I remember back a couple years ago when Taylan Lamkin was seeded eighth in his regional and he ends up taking sixth at state.”Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
