H.S. GOLF: Rinker claims district crown with 2-over 74


GROVE CITY — Sculley wins Class AA

Eight golfers from the Class AA tournament advanced, including event champion Sean Sculley of Mercyhurst Prep, who won a two-hole playoff against Lakers teammate Steve Kearns.

“I made a good chip for par (on No. 2), put it close, about a foot-and-a-half,” said Sculley. “The first hole, we both ended up in the same bunker, about five yards from each other. So, it was interesting.”

Both Sculley and Kearns finished with rounds of 81.

“Honestly, I thought I was going to finish in the middle,” said Sculley. “I thought there were some low numbers out there. But the course was hard. It was long and wet, wind in your face. I struggled all day until the last five holes. I was 2-under the last five holes.”

Also advancing in double-A is Titusville’s Matt McCord (82); Cambridge Springs’ Trevor Rodgers, Fort LeBoeuf’s Justin Latsko and North East’s Brian Ropecki (each with an 83), Harbor Creek’s Teven Vargo (84) and North East’s Alex Hunter (85).

Rodgers, a junior on the Blue Devils squad, said he’s happy to move on, but wasn’t jumping for joy over his score.

“Not good at all,” he said. “The conditions were kind of tough. The greens really rolled out more than I expected. And it was really windy.

“It feels good to make it. Still, an 83 is an 83.”

  • Steelers camp Steelers LB Spence caps lengthy comeback

    The whistle blew and Sean Spence sprinted forward, each cathartic step distancing the linebacker from the horrific knee injury that threatened to end his NFL career before it even really began.
    Spence almost gleefully smashed into fullback Bryce Davis during the Pittsburgh Steelers’ first full contact drill of training camp on Monday. The two tussled for several seconds before Davis — his fists full of Spence’s jersey — pulled them both to the ground.

  • Roethlisberger OK with choice to wait on new deal

    There are days when Ben Roethlisberger can feel every single hit he’s absorbed during a decade as one of the NFL’s most fearless quarterbacks.

  • Teen doping Survey: Teens experimenting with HGH on the rise

    Michael Guerreri wanted to try human growth hormones so he could look like a pro wrestler. Joe Badalanato hoped HGH would help him become a better football player. James O’Brien figured the drug would improve his fastball.
    The three 18-year-olds from suburban Philadelphia told The Associated Press this week that they bought bottles of HGH online in the past year. Turns out, what they bought was fake.

The Carbon Trap: US Exports Global Warming Traditional African Dishes Teach Healthy Eating

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
I’m torn. It’s not right what she did, but it sounds like the mother had few other options.
