DL Stansbury Leaves Aggies; DB Davis Arrested

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) _ Texas A&M defensive lineman Gavin Stansbury has left the team to focus on what coach Kevin Sumlin calls “personal issues.”

Stansbury had been a star on last season’s Aggie defensive front, playing in 10 games and recording 47 total tackles and three sacks. As a 6-foot-4, 257-pound junior from Franklin, La. Sumlin did not elaborate on the nature of the personal matters Stansbury was addressing.

In April, Stansbury was arrested and charged in Harris County with misdemeanor assault after a Rice University student accused him of pouring beer on the student’s head and punching him in the face.

Sumlin also confirmed that 6-foot, 194-pound freshman defensive back Victor Davis has been suspended from the team after his recent arrest in his hometown of Rosenberg on a shoplifting charge.

Shamier Little Headlines Aggie Trio in World Junior Championships

Texas A&M’s Shamier Little, the World Junior leader in the 400 hurdles, headlines a group of three Aggies who will compete in the 16th IAAF World Junior Championships at Hayward Field this week. Competition begins Tuesday, July 22, and runs through Sunday, July 27.

In addition to Little, who won the NCAA and US Junior titles at 400 hurdles during her freshman season with the Aggies, there are also two incoming A&M freshmen competing in the World Junior meet. Shaina Burns of Minnesota will compete in the heptathlon for the United States and Ioánnis Kiriazis throws the javelin for Greece.

Coverage of the World Junior Championships, which includes 117 member federations and 1,758 athletes, will be available on Universal Sports and universalsports.com. There will also be coverage of the meet available through USATF.tv for the early sessions starting at noon (CT) during the first four days of the meet. Live results from the World Juniors are available online through iaaf.org.

This will be Little’s third competition at Hayward Field this summer after making her debut at the venue during the NCAA Championships in June. She returned to claim the US Junior title in early July.

With a career best time of 55.07 seconds, which won the NCAA title and set the Aggie school record, Little is the top 400 hurdle entry amid a field of 40 athletes from 28 countries. The next fastest entry is 56.79. The 55.07 by Little ranks No. 2 on the US all-time junior list and is No. 5 on the world all-time junior list.

Little has produced seven of the eight fastest performances this season among juniors and has run her three fastest times – 55.07, 55.43, 55.58 – on the Hayward Field track. She also currently ranks 13th in the world and sixth among Americans on the senior level.

This is the second time Little has represented the United States in the World Juniors. She competed in the 2012 World Junior Championships in Barcelona, Spain, and advanced to the final of the 400 hurdles. As she challenged for a medal in the late stages of the race, Little clipped the final hurdle with her trail leg, fell to the track and was unable to finish.

“I’ve waited two years for this meet ever since I qualified last time,” Little noted after claiming her second US Junior title. “I can’t wait to see what I can accomplish at the very end of my season.”

Only two Americans have claimed a World Junior title in the women’s 400 hurdles, Lashinda Demus in 2002 and Takecia Jameson in 2008. There have been three silver medalists for USA, in 1986, 2006 and 2010, as well as a bronze medalist in 2012.

Little runs the opening round of the 400 hurdles on Thursday at 2:45 p.m. (CT), with the semifinal set for Friday at 9:05 p.m. (CT). The final of the 400 hurdles will be contested Saturday at 6:10 p.m. (CT).

Burns set a personal best score of 5,363 points in the heptathlon as runner-up during the US Junior meet to qualify for the World Junior Championships. She will compete in a field of 27 athletes from 19 countries, where the top score among entries is 6,231 points with two other scores over 6,000.

The heptathlon begins at noon (CT) on the first day of the meet with Burns competing in four of the seven events on Tuesday and then completes the three remaining events on Wednesday.

Kiriazis is one of the top five javelin throwers entered in the meet. The field includes 31 athletes from 27 countries. Kiriazis produced a career best mark of 241-8 (73.66) on July 6 to win the Balkan Junior Championships. The leading mark among the javelin entries is 247-3 (75.38).

Aggie Duo Helps USA to Haarlem-Honkbal Week Title

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M standouts Nick Banks and AJ Minter helped lead the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team to a title at the 27th Haarlem-Honkbal Week in the Netherlands.

In Sunday’s championship game, Banks went 1-for-3 with one sacrifice bunt, one run and two RBI as the USA scored a 6-3 victory over Japan at Pim Mulier Stadium.

Team USA posted a 7-1 mark at Haarlem-Honkbal Week en route to its fourth title in eight trips to the biennial tournament since 2000. During the week, Banks started all eight games going .281 (9-for-32) with three runs and five RBI. Minter appeared in three games, retiring eight of the nine batters he faced in 2.2 scoreless innings, allowing just one hit while striking out three.

The Red, White and Blue own an 18-3-2 record for the summer. Banks has appeared in 21 games, including 19 starts. He is batting .270 (20-for-74) with two doubles, one home run and 12 RBI. Minter has made seven relief appearances, yielding just two unearned runs on two hits and seven walks while striking out eight over 9.2 innings.

Aggie head coach Rob Childress is serving as an assistant coach for the team. The squad is skippered by Arkansas head coach Dave Van Horn with assistance from Pepperdine’s Steve Rodriguez and New Mexico’s Ray Birmingham.

Team USA closes out the 2014 campaign with a five-game series in Cuba from July 23-27. The squad will play three games in Matanzas and three games in Pinar Del Rio.

Texas A&M Swimmers Succeed at National Events

Several new, current, and former Texas A&M swimmers took on the swimmers of their home countries as they competed for national titles. Four Aggies took part in the Mexican Swimming Nationals while another Aggie went up north to compete in the Canadian Swimming National Championship.

Returning Aggie senior Liliana Ibañez performed spectacularly while at the Mexican national meet in Veracruz, Mexico, by taking four gold medals and setting a new Mexican National Record in the 50-meter butterfly.

Ibañez, a native of Celaya, Mexico, claimed two gold on the second day of competition in the 200-meter freestyle with a time of 2:02.29 and in the 50-meter butterfly with a record setting time of 27.94. Ibañez took another gold on the third day in the 100-meter freestyle with a time of 55.91, barely missing her own national record of 55.70. On the final day of the competition, Ibañez earned another gold in the 50-meter freestyle finishing with a 25.75.

Ibañez’s successes at the national championship have qualified her for the 2014 Central American and Caribbean Games where she will represent Mexico in all four of her events. The Games, comprising of 36 different sporting events, will take place in Veracruz at the end of November.

Also in Veracruz with Ibañez were former teammate Erica Dittmer, and incoming freshmen Esther Gonzales and Mauro Castillo. Dittmer, senior class of 2014, took silver in both the 100-meter and 50-meter breaststroke with times of 1:11.19 and 33.10, respectively. The two incoming freshmen also managed to nab several silver medals. Gonzales earned second in the 200-meter breaststroke with a time of 2:33.94. Castillo took the same in the men’s 50-meter breaststroke coming in at 29.00 and the 100-meter breaststroke with a 1:03.55. Castillo ended the meet taking a third silver medal in the 200-meter breaststroke with a time of 2:16.39. Castillo also earned a berth to the 2014 Central American and Caribbean Games.

Meanwhile up north in Saskatoon, Canada, Texas A&M junior Ashley McGregor had her own fantastic performances bringing home her own national title.

McGregor, from Pointe-Claire, Quebec, took gold on the first day of the championship in the 200-meter breaststroke with a time of 2:27.18. McGregor’s swim was just shy of her Canadian trials swim in April which ranked her 37th in the world at 2:27.11. McGregor took third in the 100-meter breaststroke on the second day with a time of 1:09.51 finishing behind Fiona Doyle and Rachel Nicole. She ended the championship by earning a silver medal going 2:17.67 in the 200-meter individual medley.

Astros Fail to Sign First Pick in MLB Draft

CHICAGO (AP) _ The Houston Astros have failed to sign the first pick in this year’s draft.

The Astros say they didn’t reach an agreement with high school pitcher Brady Aiken before Friday’s deadline.

The left-hander from San Diego’s Cathedral Catholic was just the third prep pitcher to be selected first overall when he was taken last month. Aiken was also the first high school lefty to be drafted in the first five picks since Adam Loewen went fourth overall to Baltimore in 2002. The UCLA recruit has a fastball that hits 96-97 mph.

Sawyers Returns to K-State Baseball Coaching Staff

MANHATTAN, Kan. – K-State baseball coach Brad Hill has turned to a familiar face and a proven winner as Andy Sawyers has been named Associate Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator.

Sawyers replaces Mike Clement, who after two seasons as the Wildcats’ hitting coach accepted an assistant coaching position last week with 2014 College World Series participant Ole Miss.

“We are extremely excited to bring Coach Sawyers and his wife, Dena, and their son, A.J., back to the Wildcat family,” said Hill. “When Mike Clement accepted the assistant coaching position at Ole Miss, there was one name that immediately came to mind to fill our position: Andy Sawyers. He was directly involved in our four NCAA postseason appearances, from his offensive leadership during his coaching tenure to the recruitment of key players who led us to a Big 12 Conference championship three years after his departure to Texas A&M. He is a great offensive coach, passionate teacher for student-athletes, and leader of young men. We look forward to the aggressive offensive philosophy that he will instill, an approach that led the Big 12 in numerous offensive categories during his previous time at K-State.”

Sawyers, who was an assistant on Hill’s staff in the 2009 and 2010 seasons and helped the Wildcats reach their first two NCAA Regionals in program history, returns to K-State after spending the last four seasons as associate head coach at Texas A&M. Since 2011, he coordinated the Aggies offense and worked with the catchers defensively, helping the team reach the NCAA postseason in each of the four seasons. In his first season at Texas A&M, Sawyers helped direct the Aggies to a Big 12 championship and an appearance in the College World Series.

“Kansas State is a place that has very special memories for me, including being a part of the school’s first ever trip to the NCAA postseason in 2009,” said Sawyers. “I’m very close to Coach Hill, and to get a chance to work with him once again is special. Manhattan is a place where my son was born, and although I am a California native, it is as close to home as I am ever going to have in the coaching profession. My wife and I are very excited to be coming home.”

Previously with the Wildcats, Sawyers oversaw an aggressive K-State offense that led the Big 12 in batting average and stolen bases in both seasons. In 2009, K-State hit .317 and stole a program-record 149 bases, and in 2010, the Wildcats batted .323 with 120 steals, the fourth-most stolen bases in a single season. Also in 2010, K-State led the conference in OBP and was second in runs.

Sawyers worked with five K-State hitters who received All-Big 12 honors, including 2010 Big 12 Player of the Year Nick Martini and future MLB Draft picks Carter Jurica, Adam Muenster, Jason King, and Jared King. Martini is one of six players Sawyers has worked with since the 2000 season that have combined to win seven of the conference’s player of the year awards.

In his coaching career, Sawyers has helped lead his teams to 12 NCAA Regional appearances, four Super Regional berths, and two trips to the College World Series. His teams have also won the Big 12 regular season or championship tournament titles in five seasons.

A veteran coach of 16 years at the collegiate level, Sawyers has coached within the Big 12 for 11 of those seasons. The former Nebraska catcher began his coaching career as a volunteer assistant coach at Northwestern State (La.) in 1999 before serving as an assistant coach with the Huskers (2000, 2003-07), head coach at Hutchinson Community College (2001-02), and assistant at Texas A&M (2008, 2011-14).

At Nebraska, Sawyers helped the Huskers reach the NCAA Tournament five times, including an appearance in the 2005 College World Series. He worked with the team’s hitters, helping 13 players get selected in the MLB Draft, as well as served as the program’s academic coordinator and assisted with recruiting.

As the head coach at Hutchinson Community College, Sawyers compiled an 87-30 record and made two trips to the postseason. In 2002, he led the Dragons to a school-record 47 wins and a national ranking as high as seventh.

A native of Willits, California, Sawyers received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Nebraska. He also played collegiately at Point Loma (Calif.) Nazarene College and Mendocino (Calif.) Junior College.

Aggie Basketball Reveals Complete Non-Conference Schedule

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Challenging opponents and seven contests inside the friendly confines of Reed Arena highlight the Texas A&M men’s basketball team’s 2014-15 non-conference schedule as Friday the program announced its complete slate of non-SEC games.

“This is one of the most difficult non-conference schedules Texas A&M basketball has faced in some time.” Texas A&M head coach Billy Kennedy said. “I’ve really been impressed by the leadership, talent and maturity of this year’s team during the spring and summer workouts. It will be the best group since I’ve been here and we’re looking forward to the challenge of facing tough competition on the court.”

The new campaign will officially get underway on Nov. 14 when the Aggies host Northwestern State at Reed Arena. Texas A&M enters the season having won 13 straight season-opening games and 14 consecutive home openers.

The Aggies’ first venture away from College Station will be a trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Nov. 20-23 for the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. The event’s impressive field is headlined by defending national champion Connecticut and also includes Boston College, College of Charleston, Dayton, George Mason, New Mexico and West Virginia. The Aggies’ opponents at the tournament are expected to be set in the near future.

After returning to Aggieland from Puerto Rico, Texas A&M will host three consecutive home games beginning Nov. 28 when the team faces New Orleans before returning to the court against Sam Houston State on Dec. 3.

The early-season homestand concludes on Dec. 6 when the Aggies welcome Arizona State to Reed Arena for the first time since 1998. The Sun Devils represent the first of four A&M opponents (Arizona State, Baylor, Kansas State and Mercer) in a six-game stretch that are coming off an appearance in the 2014 NCAA Tournament.

On Dec. 9, Texas A&M and Baylor will revive the Battle of the Brazos on the hardwood as the Aggies travel to Waco, Texas, to face the Bears at Ferrell Center. The former Southwest Conference and Big 12 Conference rivals, whose home arenas are separated by 88 miles, have met 205 previous times on the basketball court with the Aggies holding a  127-78 edge in the all-time series, which dates back to the 1914-15 season.

After hosting Youngstown State at Reed Arena on Dec. 13, Texas A&M will once again hit the road, this time traveling to Kansas City’s Sprint Center for a date with former Big 12 foe Kansas State on Dec. 20.

Texas A&M will conclude non-conference play with back-to-back home contests beginning on Dec. 30 against Mercer. Last season, the Bears upset third-seeded Duke to advance to the third round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Aggies’ finale tune-up before SEC play will come on Jan. 3 when they host Hartford.

The SEC is expected to announce the league’s full conference schedule in August. The Aggies’ slate in league play will include home contests against Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi State, Missouri and Vanderbilt.

Tour de France / Armstrong Talked to Investigators

TOUR DE FRANCE

No change at the top

SAINT-ETIENNE, France (AP) _ Italy’s Vincenzo Nabili remains the overall leader
in the Tour de France after 12 stages, 2 minutes and 23 seconds ahead of
Australian Richie Porte.

Norway’s Alexander Kristoff was the winner of the 12th stage, which covered 115
miles.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) _ An attorney for Lance Armstrong says the cyclist talked
with investigators recently about doping in the sport’s past.

Elliot Peters told The Associated Press that Armstrong set up the meeting and
sat for questions for seven hours on May 22 in Northern Virginia, and described
the session as a “very good meeting.”

The probe has been expected to center on the International Cycling Union’s
handling of doping in the late 1990s and early 2000s, especially its links with
Armstrong.

Armstrong won the Tour de France every year from 1999-2005, but those titles
were stripped after a massive report by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency detailed
doping by him and his U.S. Postal Service teammates.

British Open

HOYLAKE, England (AP) _ Rory McIlroy is the man to chase in second-round play
underway at the British Open at Royal Liverpool. And George Coetzee has gotten
close, at least for the moment.

The little-known South African shot a 3-under 69 in early play to pull to
within a shot of the leader.

After pristine conditions along the Irish Sea on Thursday, the wind was gusting
up to 35 mph, whipping the flags and making it much tougher to go low. At least
the expected showers held off, the morning starters going off in warm, sunny
conditions.

McIlroy opened with a bogey-free 66 yesterday that included six birdies.

This year, McIlroy has started a couple of tournaments with 63s and another
with a 64, but wasn’t able to win any of them. For some reason, he’s had a
serious case of the yips in the second round, putting up a cumulative score of
15-over par compared with 55 under for the opening round, and 39 under on the
weekend.

The world’s top-ranked player, Adam Scott, also got off to a strong start with
a 68, but was 2 over for the round through 12 holes.

Defending champion Phil Mickelson got off to a frustrating start with a 74. A
chip in for eagle at the fifth gave him a much-needed boost, and he seemed safe
for the weekend at 1 under through 14 holes.

Tiger Woods starts the day three back of the leader.

Beer Available at University of North Texas Home Football Games

DENTON, Texas (AP) _ North Texas will begin selling beer on the public concourse level at football games this fall.

UNT officials announced Thursday that beer will be sold in controlled areas of Apogee Stadium, away from a family fun area under the north end zone stands.

The beer sales will be managed by the same catering group that already handles alcohol sales in the stadium’s private club and suite levels. The university has had a license to sell alcoholic beverages in all areas of the stadium since it opened for the 2011 season.

Athletic director Rick Villarreal expects public beer sales to be a revenue generator, including additional ticket sales and an increase in food and merchandise sales.

SMU, in nearby Dallas, will also begin selling beer at home football games this season.
