CC Spokane golfer Roller commits to Texas-Arlington

From Local And Wire Reports
 

Community Colleges of Spokane golf standout Andrew Roller (Coeur d’Alene) has committed to play for the University of Texas at Arlington.

Roller finished two years at CCS as one of the more decorated players in school history. As a sophomore, Roller earned first-team all-conference honors. As a freshman he led the NWAACC with the low scoring average as CCS captured back-to-back NWAACC titles.

Dylan Maine (Freeman, CCS) won the prestigious Rossland-Trail Open for a second straight year, overcoming a three-stroke deficit on the final day with a bogey-free 6-under 66.

Maine shot rounds of 74, 69 and 66 for 7-under 209, defeating Chewelah Golf and Country Club professional Jason Pitt by two strokes.

Hall of Fame

Late Seattle pro baseball owner Emil Sick and jockey Russell Baze will be inducted into the State of Washington Sports Hall of Fame this weekend.

Sick and Baze are part of a class of six 2012 inductees along with ex-Washington State quarterback Drew Bledsoe, former Washington Husky QB Warren Moon, retired Seattle Pacific soccer coach Cliff McCrath and retired Mercer Island boys basketball coach Ed Pepple.

Sick revitalized professional baseball in Seattle when he purchased the Spokane Indians of the Pacific Coast League in 1937. He renamed the team the Rainiers after the brewery he owned and built Sick’s Stadium in the Rainier Valley.

Baze is one of two jockeys to win the Longacres Mile at Longacres and Emerald Downs. The Granger High graduate had more than 11,500 wins.
