2A-7 swimming: Newsome teams sweep

Despite battling chilly temperatures, the Newsome boys and girls teams held commanding wins in the 2A-7 meet Tuesday at Rowdy Gaines Pool in Winter Haven.

The Wolves boys, which had top four sweeps in the 200 free and 500 free, defeated second-place Winter Haven 576-306; the girls beat second-place Sebring by a 615.50-380.50 margin.

Senior Jason Taylor won the 200 free and 500 free for the Wolves and Jacob Bukaweski won the 100 fly and placed second in the 500 free. The Newsome duo also was part of the winning 200 free and 400 free relay teams.

On the girls side, Sharla Milne won the 200 free and the 500 free while Katie Kyle placed first in the 200 IM and the 100 back. Other notable finishes included freshman Amy Taylor's runnerup finish in the 500 free and 100 back.

"I think it's great for our teams to win district championships," Newsome coach Chau Clark said. "Did my all of my swimmers swim their best times? No, I'm always looking ahead to regionals and we have two other districts in our region so the teams that have meets on, say, Saturday when it warms up, might make a big difference in where my fifth-, sixth-, seventh- and eighth-place swimmers place."

    The 10 strikeouts look flashy, but RHP Chris Archer was not his sharpest Thursday. He allowed three runs on seven hits, including three straight in the two-run second and a Gary Sanchez homer in the third, and lasted only six innings, throwing 102 pitches.

    NEW YORK — The front office did its part Thursday, making two trades to bolster the roster in a push for the playoffs. But the Rays didn't follow up in a frustrating 6-5 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge stands on the mound and can only watch as the Yankees’ Brett Gardner starts to circle the bases after his walkoff home run leading off the 11th inning.
  3. Believe it! Rays are buyers, trade for reliever Dan Jennings and 1B/DH Lucas Duda

    NEW YORK — Dan Jennings' ability to render lefty hitters useless with a sinker that gets beaten into the ground and Lucas Duda's power to blast baseballs off and over outfield walls should make the Rays better.
