Mizzou Links, 4-9-07

Busy, successful weekend for Mizzou sports...

  • Mizzou was down two in the 9th of the rubber match against K-State before a 2-run triple by Brock Bond tied the game. And then freshman Trevor Coleman hit a solo HR in the 12th for the win. Mizzou wins its third straight series of the Big XII season (two of the three have been on the road) and sits at 6-3 overall.
  • The softball team, fresh off of sweeping Texas last weekend, sweeps OSU to move to 5-0 in conference (29-17 overall). They host Kansas in a 1-game series (guess that means it's not actually a "series", eh?) on Wednesday, a game with serious Border War (sorry...Border Showdown) implications--Mizzou leads 13-12 overall. Win that, and they're two games away from their all-time best Big XII winning streak, 8 games.
  • John Kelly performed admirably at the Masters this weekend, winning Low Amateur but missing the cut by two strokes. How close did he come to playing through the weekend? Well, look at how the holes played out. He was a solid even par on holes 1-10 over the weekend and was just +5 on holes 12-18. Unfortunately, he was also +5 on hole #11. The hole that has destroyed many, many Masters bids over the years pretty much single-handedly destroyed Kelly's. Still a great showing. Here's the Missourian's article about him.
  • Also at the Missourian...Mizzou defeats Kansas in tennis, 4-3. Nothing wrong with that!
  • And finally, Spring Football. Need a fix? Here's Power Mizzou's take on the Saturday scrimmage. And the Post-Dispatch's. And here's a nice "Mizzou's TE are amazing" article from Senior Dearmond at the KC Star. More on football over the next couple of weeks. Now I have to get ready to go to work.
