AUBURN, Wash. — Prime Engine sure picked the right time to end his drought. Winless since winning the top race of the season for 2-year-olds last September at Emerald Downs, Prime Engine won the $68,750 Emerald Downs Derby on Sunday, the top race of the season for 3-year-old males.
SEATTLE — Top-seeded April Ross and Jennifer Fopma won the AVP Kingston Seattle Open on Sunday, beating third-seeded Summer Ross and Lane Carico 21-18, 15-21, 15-13.
BURBANK, Calif. — Southern California was picked to win its first Pac-12 football title since 2008 in a preseason media poll Thursday.
SEATTLE — Rick Neuheisel is gone, but the Pac-12 Networks is adding two other Huskies to its roster of broadcasters.
Clearly, Randy Johnson is no longer the glowering giant who seemed to be perpetually brooding over some perceived slight — such as any opponent who had the audacity to step to the plate with a bat in his hand. Five years removed from the game, and on the verge of his life’s crowning achievement — Sunday’s Baseball Hall of Fame induction in Cooperstown, N.Y., — Johnson was relaxed, cheerful and expansive during a full day of media interviews last week.
UNIVERSITY PLACE, Wash. — One mystery was solved Thursday in the U.S. Open. Chambers Bay can be as hard as the USGA wants it to be. Henrik Stenson and Dustin Johnson shared the lead at 5-under 65, and the other 23 players who managed to break par in a gentle debut of the new golf course off Puget Sound agreed that it likely will only get tougher the rest of the way.
UNIVERSITY PLACE — Chambers Bay did just fine, thank you, and so did Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson.
Picking the five most memorable U.S. Opens from the 114 that have been held is kind of like trying to read a 45-foot putt with multiple breaks:
Mike Scott scored 23 points, Connor Hill had 21 and Idaho knocked off Northern Colorado 83-79 on Saturday, snapping a four-game losing streak.
Derrick Marks scored 28 points and Nick Duncan added a career-high 20 to lead Boise State to a 77-68 victory over Air Force in a close contest on Saturday afternoon.
