As recently as 12 months ago, Royals star pitcher Max Meyer wasn’t even on the Gophers radar.
After a stellar performance at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials, RJ Alowonle -- a 2012 graduate of Park High School in Cottage Grove -- bowed out in the semifinals on Friday night. Alowonle finished sixth in his heat in the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 50.46 seconds. There were two heats and the top four runners in each heat moved on to the finals.
Longtime Royals softball coach Bob Samson knows what he’ll miss — the players and coaches. He also knows what he won’t miss — the long bus rides home after games.
Like many kids, growing up Isaac Bryant wanted to be just like Dad. He would follow his father like a shadow. He would mirror his father’s every action. Anything it took to be like Dad. “He used to compete in triathlons (they were Ironman competitions, actually) and I wanted to be like him,” Bryant recalled, rocking back and forth in rocking chair on the front porch of his family’s home in Maplewood. “So I started to compete in triathlons when I was like 8 years old.”
WOODBURY — Less than a week after nabbing a scholarship offer from the Gophers — only his second offer total — Raptors star running back Dominik London decided he'd heard enough. London announced his commitment to the University of Minnesota on Wednesday night via Twitter. pic.twitter.com/57oVmtaDH3
