“We were up 10 at the half and we held them to 14 points and right at the end of the second quarter, she gets hit in the head and it really kind of jarred her,” he recalled. “She was okay to go back in the game, she went through concussion protocol, she was fine, but she wasn’t the same. It was really a shame because I thought we had a really good chance to beat them.”

Loyola Maryland disappointed but not surprised by Patriot League’s decision to cancel fall sports competitions

“The reaction was obviously a combination of disappointment, but with, I think, not one of surprise,” she said about two hours after that online meeting. “I had to go through this with our coaches and student-athletes in the spring, and not that it came out of nowhere, but we did not have four months of already being in this uncertainty. So I think as everybody’s been watching what’s been going on across the country, there at least was a little more of, ‘OK, I’m not surprised. I’m disappointed, but not surprised.’”

Washington’s NFL team is dropping its name and logo after 87 years. A new name has not been announced.

The move came less than two weeks after owner Dan Snyder, a boyhood fan of the team who once declared he would never get rid of the name, launched a "thorough review" amid pressure from sponsors. FedEx, Nike, Pepsi and Bank of America all lined up against the name, which was given to the franchise in 1933 when the team was still based in Boston.

The NBA is considering a 2nd bubble in Chicago for its bottom 8 teams, including the Bulls. The mayor’s office is on board — but Illinois’ recent COVID-19 uptick is only 1 potential hurdle.

“Everything’s a moving target,” Chiampas said. “We had 1,000 coronavirus cases; it’s the highest we’ve seen in at least five to six weeks. As we’re looking at that, I’m sure the league is looking at it, I’m sure the players are looking at it, so those are the challenges. You’re trying to pick a location, but you’re trying to project what it’s going to look like four weeks, six weeks, eight weeks from now.”

Armstrong, a North Carolina native, said he started to be more mindful of his diet and how he ate after he was traded to the Seattle Mariners from the Cleveland Indians in 2018.

Anne Arundel senior spotlights: boys lacrosse

Midfielder Anthony Coppolla, also a team captain, led the team in ground balls “which was the backbone of our success,” coach Luther Fleming said. Attackman Mason Fortlage was often underestimated, Fleming said, and had the ability and strength to finish any play. Defender Nathan DiAngelo, another captain, was key in transition and in the clearing game.

Lakers’ Anthony Davis to wear own name on jersey in Orlando

"For me, I think the name 'Davis' is something I try to represent every time I step on the floor," he said. "I just think my last name is something that's very important to me, and also social justice as well. But (I'm) just holding my family name and representing the name on the back to go through this process ... and people who have been with me through my entire career to help me get to this point, while still kind of bringing up things that we can do for social injustice."
