- Every stroke counts in golf and in terms of Oregon State golfer Spencer Tibbits debut at the U.S. Open, he needed just one more shot to fall his way. Tibbits shot an even-par on day two of the tournament, causing him to miss the cut for the 119th U.S. Open Championship by just one stroke. However, the Washington native seemed sure that it won’t be his last go-round against the world class players, noting that “to play against these guys is really a dream come true and I cannot wait to play against them more in the future.”
- Just as he’s done with just about every other award acknowledging the top player in all of college baseball, Oregon State catcher and recent top pick in the 2019 MLB Draft, Adley Rutschman, claimed the Dick Howser Trophy on Friday. The accolade, which is given annually by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association to the country’s top collegiate player, will join the Golden Spikes award (among others) in the star talent’s trophy case.
- Are you an Oregon State alumni? Possibly. That’s probably why you’re here. Have you scored a goal in the World Cup? Likely not. Unless your name is Jodie Taylor. The 2007 Beavers grad gave her native England the go-ahead goal against Argentina at the 2019 Women’s World Cup on Friday, with a back-post run that she buried into the back of the net. Taylor’s finish would go on to be the difference maker in the contest and push the Lionesses through to the Last 16.
- If you’re looking for your football fix in a world of baseball news, then remember that the Canadian Football League has begun, with some former Oregon State players in Dylan Wynn (Hamilton Tiger-Cats) and Colin Kelly (Edmonton Eskimos) expected to play key roles for their squads. In Hamilton’s season opener this week, Wynn tallied five tackles, as well a crucial sack, in the Tiger-Cats 23-17 victory over Saskatchewan.
- And finally, you’ve heard by now that Oregon State has hired Mitch Canham as their new baseball coach but what will his staff look like heading into the 2020 season? According to Bob Lundeberg, there will be some familiar faces in Corvallis, as former interim head coach Pat Bailey will stay on as associate head coach, Nate Yeskie will be the pitching coach and Ryan Gipson will serve as a volunteer assistant on the staff.
