UW-Eau Claire junior cross country runner Sam Slattery earned the USTFCCCA’s national athlete of the week award for Division III women after a first-place showing on Saturday at the Augsburg Invite. Slattery was a 15-second winner with a time of 23 minutes, 32.7 seconds over the 6-kilometer course. Slattery earned All-American honors a year ago with a 17th-place finish at nationals.
UW-Stout junior Madison McCambridge shot an even-par 72 on Sunday to win DIII Midwest Classic at The Jewel in Lake City, Minn., and became the first Blue Devils women’s golfer to shoot par or better on back-to-back days in a tournament. McCambridge shot a 71 on Saturday. Her two-day total of 143 broke the UW-Stout record of 145 set by Rachel Hernandez last year. UW-Stout tied for third in the team standings. UW-Eau Claire, led by 12th-place finisher Allison Chomniak, was 13th.
MILWAUKEE — Brewers manager Craig Counsell says every day is going to be difficult during the final two weeks of the regular season, and the Pittsburgh Pirates showed why. Jesus Aguilar and Domingo Santana hit back-to-back home runs to begin the ninth inning for Milwaukee, but the NL wild-card leaders couldn’t complete the rally and lost 3-2 on Sunday. “You’ve got to bring it every day,” Counsell said. “It’s a good message for us the rest of the
GREEN BAY — Wide right, times two. Daniel Carlson missed two field goals in overtime, including one from 35 yards as time expired, and the Minnesota Vikings had to settle for a 29-29 tie with the Green Bay Packers after rallying from a late 13-point deficit on Sunday. The rookie’s final attempt went to the right of the uprights, just like his kick from 49 earlier in overtime. Carlson also missed from 48 in the second quarter. Packers kicker Mason Crosby matched a career high with

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Brad Keselowski nailed the final restart and roared away from the field in the scorching Vegas heat. With another huge performance in his late-season surge, Keselowski finished up front again — and he’s got NASCAR’s Big Three drivers looking over their shoulders. Keselowski raced to his third consecutive Cup series victory Sunday, opening the playoffs by persevering through a wreck-filled afternoon and taking charge of overtime. He also secured team
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There was little for Tyler Austin to be upset about as he headed to the bus on Sunday. The Twins’ first baseman had hit one of their four home runs in a 9-6 win over the Kansas City Royals. He had escaped unscathed after making a spectacular catch while flipping into the dugout down the first-base line and, perhaps most importantly, he didn’t have to dress up in one of the ridiculous horse-and-jockey costumes that were awaiting his rookie teammates in their
MADISON — BYU coach Kalani Sitake viewed Wisconsin’s brand of smashmouth football as a blueprint for success. The Cougars followed the plan to perfection Saturday at Camp Randall Stadium. Squally Canada ran for 118 yards and two touchdowns and BYU handed mistake-prone Wisconsin its first nonconference home loss since 2003 with a 24-21 victory. Wisconsin (2-1) had one last chance to avoid an upset with a drive that started with 3 minutes, 55 seconds left at the 8. But normally
There are so many things to point to as to why the UW-Eau Claire football team is 2-0 for the first time since 2010. There’s the improved running game, which is averaging 232 yards per game. Or the defense, allowing just 263.5 yards per game while surrendering just 29 regulation points. And of course, there’s the belief among the team that they can win, something that hasn’t been around in the last couple of seasons. But here’s one that — as the
Kyle Radavich threw a six-yard touchdown pass to Mitchell Gerend for the go-ahead score early in the fourth quarter as UW-Oshkosh, ranked No. 15 in the D3Football.com poll, defeated Lincoln (Mo.) 17-7 on the road on Saturday. The two teams were tied 7-7 entering the fourth quarter, and the Titans needed just over one minute to break the tie in the final period. Peyton Peterson made a 34-yard field goal with 5:31 left to play to give UW-Oshkosh some breathing room. Radavich passed for 156
