Strasburg shut down WASHINGTON — All-Star ace Stephen Strasburg is done for the year after the Washington Nationals decided to end his season following a shaky start, costing him a chance to possibly pitch in the playoffs. Manager Davey Johnson made the announcement Saturday morning with the Nationals holding the best record in the majors. He said the media attention surrounding the innings limit for the 24-year-old right-hander was affecting the pitcher. “I just told Stephen that his year is over. He’s had a great year. I know what he’s going through,” Johnson said. “The media hype on this thing has been unbelievable. I feel it’s as hard for him as it would be anybody to get mentally, totally committed in the ballgame. And he’s reached his innings limit. So we can get past this and talk about other things for a change.” Johnson said Strasburg was “emotional” about the decision to end his season immediately. The Associated Press

MANHATTAN — This was not the Miami of yesteryear, full of attitude and swagger. It is a Hurricane team, however, that is a major player in a major conference and opened its season with an ACC road win. When the Hurricanes came to Kansas State on Saturday, that was difficult to ascertain. The No. 21 Wildcats treated Miami like just another patsy with a 52-13 victory at Bill Snyder Family Stadium.

“Honestly, I didn't see it coming like this,” linebacker Tre Walker said of the blowout. “We played solid. Everybody did their job.” Coach Bill Snyder couldn't say he expected a victory in this fashion. “I never look at it that way because I could be disappointed every day of my life if I did,” Snyder said. “I'm not structured that way. Nothing surprises me at all, but if the score was flopped it would surprise me. It is what it is. That's the way I

MANHATTAN — Sometimes the same old message just gets lost. Bill Snyder realized that last week. Consequently, the Kansas State coach stopped admonishing his football team for starting slow. This, after the Wildcats needed 35 fourthquarter points to pull away in their season opener. “Coach Snyder did a great job backing down from that and just getting us to play ball,’’

linebacker Tre Walker said. “He’s not going to bother us about it or talk to us about it all.’’ Especially not now. On Saturday it became obvious that wisdom doesn’t always need to be wrapped in long-winded chatter. Kansas State started fast, ended fast and played fast, manhandling Miami, 52-13, in Snyder Family Stadium. The outset keyed the onslaught. Running 18 plays overall to produce touchdowns on the first

LAWRENCE — Seasons change fast, sometimes before anyone realizes it happened. That’s how it was for Kansas on Saturday. The sun was shining. The Jayhawks had a double-digit lead against Rice, and it seemed like fans would have at least another week to enjoy the happy buzz of Charlie Weis’ first summer on the job. Then the wind shifted. Rice scored a touchdown. Dayne Crist threw an interception, and before

any of it could really sink in, the Owls were storming the field to celebrate a last-second field goal and a dramatic upset. Chris Boswell connected from 45 yards to give Rice a 25-24 victory, handing Weis his first loss at KU. The Jayhawks are 1-1 after their two most winnable games, and it's now hard to ignore the chill of what could be a long and difficult season. “Let’s see what they’re going to do after they lose a game like Please see KU, Page 7D

HAYS — Every football team wants to get games off to a good start, particularly on the road. Good was a gross understatement for what Washburn did early Saturday night  to Fort Hays State at Lewis Field en route to a 45-20 MIAA victory over the Tigers. The Ichabods (2-0 overall and in the conference) led 28-0 after

the first quarter, with WU quarterback Mitch Buhler throwing for 154 yards and three touchdowns. The Ichabods’ defense, meanwhile, forced three Fort Hays turnovers in the quarter as everything went in Washburn’s favor. After stalling on its first couple of possessions in its season opener, the Ichabods opened the game with an 8-play, 83-yard drive that was capped off by a 17-yard touchdown pass from Buhler to Matt Kobbeman.

BRIEFLY LOCAL & STATE CHIEFS SIGN WR HEMINGWAY: The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Saturday that the club has signed wide receiver Junior Hemingway to the team’s practice squad. The Chiefs have terminated the practice squad contract of lineman Rich Ranglin. Hemingway (6-foot-1, 222) was drafted by the Chiefs with the second of two picks in the seventh round (238th overall) of the 2012 NFL draft. Ranglin (6-3, 315) spent three seasons in the Arena Football League before joining the Chiefs. He played for three different AFL clubs including the Kansas City Command (2011).

COLLEGE SPORTS TULANE SAFETY BREAKS SPINE: Tulane safety Devon Walker fractured his spine in a head-to-head collision with a teammate during a game in Tulsa, the team doctor said Saturday. Dr. Buddy Savoie said during a postgame news conference that Walker is in stable condition and will need spinal surgery in the “the next day or two.” “He was stable when we transported him,” Savoie said. “I do not think, based on the information we have, his life was ever in danger.” ISU’S PALO SUSPENDED AFTER ABUSE CHARGE: Iowa State reserve Bubu Palo was suspended Friday after being charged with sexually abusing a woman he was driving home earlier this year. Palo and another man, Spencer Cruise, 21, of Ames, were charged with second-degree sexual abuse. They were jailed after surrendering to authorities Friday morning, though Palo was later released. According to the criminal complaint, the men offered to give a woman a ride home on May 18 but instead drove her to a home owned by Cruise’s family and “committed a sex act by force against the victim’s will.”

Kansas City’s Andy Studebaker (96), teaming to tackle Green Bay’s Graham Harrell during the preseason, will start for Tamba Hali on Sunday when the Chiefs play host to the Atlanta Falcons.

Driven Studebaker set for his shot at Falcons The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Chiefs’ replacement for one of the NFL’s most feared pass rushers this Sunday will be an unheralded veteran linebacker out of tiny Wheaton College. It won’t be the first time Andy Studebaker has started a game, but it’ll surely be like none other: It’s the season opener against the Atlanta Falcons, and Studebaker will be taking the place of Tamba Hali, who is suspended for Week 1 for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. Studebaker knows that he can’t be Hali, whose 12 sacks last season ranked second in the AFC. Studebaker isn’t known for getting after the quarterback anyway. Instead, he’s known for grit and determination that not only allowed him to make an NFL roster out of college, but hang around this long. “You can’t go in there being someone you’re not,” Studebaker said. “For me, I’m going to know my job. I’m going to play as hard as I can. We’re going to, as a defense, play hard, know what we’re doing, communicate effectively and put ourselves in a position to have a chance.” It’s certainly a big order against Matt Ryan, Roddy White and the Falcons, especially considering the Chiefs defense could be without several other key players. Safety Kendrick Lewis is expected to miss the game with a shoulder injury, and cornerback Brandon Flowers (heel) and linebacker Derrick Johnson (ankle) have been limited in practice, while their backups are dealing

with groin injuries. That means the Chiefs could be without as many as four starters — or, best-case scenario, some of them at less-than-optimal health — and six guys overall on defense. “Backups have to be ready to go when they have an opportunity, and be ready to step up,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said. “Whoever we put out there, that’s what I expect.” Still, that’s not the way any team wants to enter a new season, and certainly not the way you want to face the Falcons, who had the league’s eighth-best pass offense a year ago. Ryan dismissed the Chiefs’ litany of injuries with rhetoric that made Kansas City’s defense sound like the ’85 Chicago Bears. But he also conceded that not having Hali staring at him from across the line was something of a blessing. “It goes without saying that he’s a great player. He’s one of the best ...,” Ryan said. “I’m sure they’ll make adjustments in terms of the scheme and personnel to try to create some of what they’re going to miss without him, but they’ve still got a talented defense.” It’s unknown what Hali took to prompt the positive test during training camp. He hasn’t been available to speak with the media, and isn’t even allowed at the practice facility this week. Without him in the lineup, the Chiefs will be scrounging for any kind of pass rush. Justin Houston had 51/2 sacks as a rookie last season, but most came with offensive lines focused on stopping Hali on the opposite

side. Johnson had two sacks last year, and Amon Gordon and Wallace Gilberry — both no longer on the team — were the only other guys with more than one. That means the Chiefs will be looking for some pressure from Dontari Poe, their first-round draft pick, who could start. Even though he plays defensive tackle, the Chiefs believe he could provide some push up the middle that will free up other guys, even if Poe doesn’t necessarily get to the quarterback himself. “Every team we play is going to be good,” said Poe, who acknowledged some growing nervousness. “I’m just doing whatever the coaches tell me. Preparing the best I can.” That’s the same mantra that Studebaker keeps repeating. A descendant of the family that developed the famed Studebaker automobile, the 6-foot-3, 248-pounder started only five games his senior season at Wheaton College because of a foot injury. He was released by Philadelphia, the team that drafted him, but hooked up with the Chiefs later in his rookie season, and he’s stubbornly stuck around ever since. Now, he’s getting a chance to step in for Hali, truly feeling the spotlight for the first time. “You don’t know how opportunity is going to come, and I say that quite a bit,” Studebaker said. “When you prepare hard and practice hard, as if it’s coming today — your opportunity — then you will be prepared and you’ll be able to help the team out.”

The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Matt Ryan, Tony Gonzalez and the rest of the high-powered Atlanta Falcons offense surely must be salivating when they imagine visiting Kansas City on Sunday. Has nothing to do with the barbecue, either. The Chiefs could be stumbling into the the season opener against one of the NFL’s prolific attacks without four defensive starters and six guys on the depth chart. Top pass rusher Tamba Hali is suspended for Week 1 for an unspecified violation of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. Safety Kendrick Lewis is out with a shoulder injury, and cornerback Brandon Flowers (heel) and linebacker Derrick Johnson (ankle) have been limited in practice. If they can’t play, Ryan and Co. could have a field day. “We’ve got our work cut out for us,” said Atlanta’s fifth-year quarterback, never one to rock the boat. “They’ve still got some talented players on that defense. We still have to play well.” Just not as well as they would have. Andy Studebaker, a former Division III defensive end, is slated to start in place of Hali. Abram Elam will take over for Lewis, who started all 16 games in 2011, but nobody is quite sure who will spell Flowers and Johnson. Flowers’ backup, Jalil Brown, has been dealing with a groin injury, which means Jacques Reeves could be pressed into service for the first time since the 2009 season, when he was with Houston. Johnson’s backup, Jovan Belcher, also was dealing with a groin injury this week. “I got what I got,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said, “and I’m going to battle with who I got.” Despite all the platitudes coming out of the Falcons, it’s clear that they relish the chance to catch the Chiefs without several starters. Ryan threw for a franchise-record 4,177 yards with and careerhigh 29 touchdowns last season, with only 12 interceptions. It helps to have a slew of guys to run and catch the ball. And of course, there’s a 12-time Pro Bowl tight end making his Kansas City return. Gonzalez was drafted by the Chiefs and played his first 12 seasons at Arrowhead Stadium, in many ways redefining his position. But when he was dealt to the Falcons in 2009, he never received a proper sendoff from Chiefs fans, and he’ll likely receive that standing salute when he begins what he’s already said will be his final year in the place where it began. Gonzalez said it’ll be “a little weird,” but he’s also desperate to finish his career with at least one playoff victory. He was shut out with the Chiefs and so far in Atlanta. “That was another reason that went into me coming back,” he said. “That’s the goal. That’s my ‘why’ for this year. That’s the reason you go out there and put it all on the line.” The Chiefs have playoff aspirations, too, despite all their injuries. They upgraded the offensive line by signing Eric Winston and bolstered the ground game by signing former Browns bruiser Peyton Hillis.

Royals fall short in ninth, 5-4 The Associated Press CHICAGO — The Kansas City Royals tried to play spoiler once again, this time falling just short. The Royals rallied for three runs in the final two innings, but the Chicago White Sox held on to even the series with a 5-4 victory Saturday. Dayan Viciedo, Tyler Flowers and Paul Konerko all homered to back Chris Sale’s six solid innings for first-place Chicago. Addison Reed finished up, extending his White Sox rookie record with his 26th save. He allowed a two-out double to Mike Moustakas on a muffed play by left fielder Jordan Danks. Brayan Pena and Johnny Giavotella hit RBI singles, and pinch-runner Jarrod Dyson stole second, but Lorenzo Cain struck out to end the game. “The thing about our team is our guys don’t quit. It doesn’t matter what the score is, it doesn’t matter what the situation is, they continue to push forward,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “We were

one swing away from tying it up, really one swing away from winning the game in a game that we were never really in the whole game. It just shows you the character of our young players.” Sale (16-6) scattered five hits and struck out six over six innings, winning his eighth straight decision at U.S. Cellular Field and helping Chicago end a sixgame losing streak against Kansas City. He allowed six baserunners in the first three innings before settling down to retire the last 10 batters he faced. Viciedo hit a solo homer in the first. Flowers connected with a two-run shot in the fourth and Konerko had a solo blast in the sixth. All three homers came off Bruce Chen (10-12), who had won his last four starts in Chicago. “It’s hard to say that he’s throwing the ball good, but he’s actually throwing the ball OK,” Yost said of Chen. “The homers are just hurting him.” Chicago hit three homers in Friday’s 7-5 loss and has gone deep 28 times in its

last 14 home games. Chen has allowed seven homers over his last two starts and 31 on the season, two shy of his career high. “I tried to pound the strike zone, use my off-speed pitches and make sure I pitch in,” Chen said. “I felt all my stuff was working. Obviously I made a couple mistakes and I paid for them.” The Royals have dominated the season series against the White Sox, winning nine of 14 even after Saturday’s loss. The six straight wins against Chicago matched a Kansas City record first set in 1982. “You want to face the best in the business,” Chen said. “I look at it as a challenge. These teams are playing for something, and it’s a good challenge for me and my teammates so we can get better and try to play it like we’re in the hunt in September.” Chen struck out Alexei Ramirez looking in the first inning for his 1,000th career strikeout.

High’s Feliciano wins first race Trojan senior cruises to victory in Topeka West Invitational cross country meet By Rick Peterson

THE CAPITAL-JOURNAL

Topeka High senior cross country runner Joeanna Feliciano has parlayed a little success into a lot more success, including her first individual title in Saturday's Topeka West Invitational at the Stateland cross country course. After not running cross country her junior season, Feliciano turned in a solid track season last season and that success led to a season-opening seventh-place finish at Manhattan. Feliciano took another big jump Saturday, taking the lead early on and winning by more than 10 seconds in a four-kilometer time of 16 minutes, 20.8 seconds to lead the Trojans to the team title by a 44-48 margin over Shawnee Mission East. "She had a really good track season,'' High coach Monica Schrag said of Feliciano, "and that really propelled her and this summer she worked hard.'' And with every successful meet, Feliciano said she sets her sights higher. "That's my motivation,'' she said. "(Track) pushed me and then I got into cross country and I was already physically trained for it so I was like, ‘OK, I'm just going to go all out,' and I try hard all the time and I guess it pays off. "This is my first win ever and it definitely pumps me up for the rest of the season.'' Feliciano was one of three Trojan runners in the top eight, with senior Emily Schoenfeld finishing third in 16:36.7 and junior Peyton Huckabay taking eighth in 16:55.7. Junior Manuela Garcia finished 12th and sophomore Cheyenne Kahler 20th to round out the Trojans' top five.

"We have a big team this year and I really see a future for us this season,'' Feliciano said. Seaman freshman Krista Akers also turned in a strong individual effort, finishing sixth in 16:50.3. Seaman challenged for the boys team championship but came up two points shy of Shawnee Mission East (34-36). The Vikings had three runners in the top 10, led by senior John Figgs, who was fourth in a fivekilometer time of 17:56.0. Freshman Daniel Kramer was fifth in 18:05.9 and sophomore Mike Devoe was eighth in 18:19.5. Junior Kyler Weingartner took 13th and junior Kaleb Murdoff 16th to round out Seaman's top five. Shawnee Heights didn’t field a full team, but T-Bird juniors Jaylin Riley and Adrian Figueroa finished seventh and ninth individually in 18:17.7 and 18:20.0, respectively.

Storm forces US Open finals to Sunday, Monday The Associated Press NEW YORK — With a potentially dangerous storm bearing down on the U.S. Open, play was suspended in the first set of defending champion Novak Djokovic’s semifinal Saturday, making this the fifth consecutive year the tournament will fail to finish on time because of the weather. Djokovic was trailing fourthseeded David Ferrer 5-2 after about a half-hour of action when tournament referee Brian Earley came out on court and told the players and the chair umpire that they needed to stop. As some spectators at Arthur Ashe Stadium booed or whistled, an announcement over the loudspeakers said: “At this time, we ask you to please make your way out of the stadium in an orderly fashion.” That match, which will determine who faces Olympic champion Andy Murray in the final, was scheduled to resume Sunday at 10 a.m. Topeka time. The men’s final was shifted from its

Andy Murray won his semifinal Saturday before a storm hit the U.S. Open.

originally scheduled Sunday slot to Monday — something that has happened at every U.S. Open since 2008. “I would say we’re getting very tired of having Monday finals,” tournament director David Brewer said. The women’s final between Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka that was supposed to

be played Saturday night was shifted to Sunday at 4:30 p.m. It’s the fourth time in the last five years the women’s title match was rescheduled. Unlike at Wimbledon and the Australian Open, the U.S. Open doesn’t have a roof to protect any court used for tournament matches. It’s also the only Grand Slam tournament that schedules two men’s semifinals on Saturday, which leaves less room for scheduling flexibility when there is disruptive weather. There was a rain delay of more than an hour Saturday morning, delaying the start of Murray’s 5-7, 6-2, 6-1, 7-6 (7) victory over Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic in the opening semifinal. At least they got to finish, even if it meant dealing with 20 mph wind that blew a changeover chair onto the court on one point and yanked Murray’s hat off during another. Now he’ll try to win his first Grand Slam title — and first for any British man in 76 years.

GOLF ROUNDUP Big names on BMW leaderboard CARMEL, Ind. — The BMW Championship turned into golf’s version of an All-Star game Saturday with Phil Mickelson making 10 birdies to share the lead with Vijay Singh, and a host of other proven players lined up behind them Saturday at Crooked Stick. Mickelson shrugged when asked about all the stars on the leaderboard, only because he figured his name wasn’t at the top and there was still work to be done. That was before Singh had his only three-putt of the tournament from about 45 feet on the last hole that made him settle for a 69. They were at 16-under 200 going into a final round loaded with possibilities. Rory McIlroy, going for his second straight FedEx Cup playoff win and his PGA Tour-leading fourth of the year, birdied the 18th to salvage an ordinary day with a 69. He was one shot behind with Lee Westwood, a former world No. 1 who made all five of his birdies on the back nine for a 68. Dustin Johnson, who has finished no worse than fourth in the other two playoff events, had a 67 and was in the group two shots behind that included Adam Scott and Robert Garrigus, who is trying to play his way into the FedEx Cup finale at East Lake in two weeks. Not to be forgotten is Tiger Woods, who turned his sloppy play around by chipping in from 25 feet on the ninth hole that began a run of four birdies in a five-hole stretch. He had to settle for a 71, ending his streak of six straight rounds in the 60s. Woods was only three shots behind. LPGA KINGSMILL CHAMPIONSHIP — At Williamsburg, Va., Paula Creamer moved into position to end a two-year victory drought, shooting a 6-under 65 to take a two-stroke lead into the final round of the Kingsmill Championship. EUROPEAN PGA KLM OPEN — At Hilversum, Netherlands, England’s Graeme Storm blew a five-stroke lead midway through the third round and dropped into a four-way tie for the KLM Open lead.

Statistically, Bubba Starling’s first season in professional baseball was a success. But what may be more important is that Starling appeared to enjoy every minute of it, the beat reporter for the Burlington Royals said. “I thought his first season was pretty good,” Burlington (N.C.) Times-News sports editor Bob Sutton said. “I just like the way he carried himself. He had a good spirit about him. Even on his tough nights, he still seemed to be engaging and doing all the right things.” Starling, the three-sport Kansas preps star from Gardner-Edgerton High School, turned down football and basketball scholarships at Nebraska after the Kansas City Royals selected him fifth overall in the 2011 draft and gave him a $7.5 million signing bonus. Dedicating himself to baseball alone for the first time, the Royals took it slow with the youngster who turned 20 in August. Starling, rated as baseball’s No. 22 prospect by MLB.com, was kept in the Royals’ extended spring training until he joined Burlington’s rookie club in mid-June. Unlike Kansas City’s previous high school first-round picks Mike Moustakas and Eric Hosmer, Starling entered with a modest number of plate appearances. Moustakas and Hosmer were both sent to full season minor league teams in their first full pro seasons. “They just needed to get him at-bats,” Sutton said. “He was a guy who was bouncing around from sport to sport. Now, he’s zeroing in on baseball for the first time. They wanted to get him so experience, some at-bats. It’s seemed to work out pretty well.” Starling hit .275 with eight doubles, two triples, 10 homers, 33 RBIs and 10 stolen bases in 53 games in the Appalachian League. He also hit better than .300 with three home runs in the postseason. Starling was named the Burlington Royals 2012 Hitter of the Year. The Royals like Starling’s potential of becoming a five-tool player with his power and overall athleticism. “He had a few big homers,” Sutton said. “This whole team had a bunch of homers, but there were a few he hit that you knew they were gone as soon as he hit them.” Starling’s 10 home runs tied for fourth best in the Appalachian League. On the negative end, Starling’s 70 strikeouts were the sixth most in the league, despite playing only 53 games of the 63-game schedule because of a hamstring injury. “If he had been able to play two more weeks at the pace he was playing, he could have led the league in homers,” Sutton said. Sutton also noted that if Starling played the whole season he may have led the league in strikeouts. He said Starling’s large number of strikeouts is a concern, but that Starling’s 6-foot-5 lanky build causes him to have a big strike zone. “It’s almost unfair for him, because he’s so tall,” Sutton said. “He also was pitched a lot tougher, because the guy on the mound knew who he was.” As Starling continues to work on plate discipline, his biggest asset now may be his defense. He played all 53 games in center field and displayed a lot of athleticism. “He covers a lot of territory out there,” Sutton said. “He made a diving catch in the postseason.” Starling’s speed also may play a bigger factor on offense next season. “He’s pretty good on the base paths, Sutton said. “He was 10 of 11 on stolen bases. The hamstring slowed his start, and I got the feeling they were holding him back a little. So those numbers could have been higher.” The Royals likely will continue to take it slow with Starling next year and see how he adapts to full-season baseball.

ROUNDUP Orioles regain tie with Yankees BALTIMORE — The Orioles continued their long-ball onslaught against the Yankees, hitting three home runs off CC Sabathia in a 5-4 victory Saturday night that moved Baltimore back into a tie atop the AL East with New York. Mark Reynolds, Lew Ford and J.J. Hardy homered for the Orioles, who have won 11 of 15 overall and nine of the last 13 against the Yankees. With a victory Sunday, Baltimore will win the season series (10-8) for the first time since 1997. Orioles right fielder Nick Markakis will be out for at least six weeks with a broken left thumb, the result of being hit by a pitch from Sabathia. Rangers 4, Rays 2, 10 innings — At St. Petersburg, Fla., rookie Jurickson Profar hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the 10th inning, helping Texas Rangers beat Tampa Bay Rays 4-2. Geovany Soto had a two-out double to deep center off Kyle Farnsworth (1-4). Profar then made it 3-2 when he drove in pinch-runner Leonys Martin on his hit past a diving Carlos Pena down the first-base line. Twins 3, Indians 0 — At Minneapolis, Cole DeVries pitched six scoreless innings to win his third straight start and Minnesota beat Cleveland. Joe Mauer had an RBI single and Josh Willingham added a sacrifice fly in a two-run third inning for Minnesota, which had lost four of its past five games.

National League DODGERS 3, GIANTS 2 — At San Francisco, Hanley Ramirez hit a go-ahead RBI double in the top of the ninth and Los Angeles trimmed a game off their division deficit with a 3-2 win over NL West-leading San Francisco on Saturday. Adrian Gonzalez led off the ninth with a triple against Jeremy Affeldt (1-2), then Ramirez came through with a double to the gap in right-center. That was the Dodgers’ first hit in 15 tries this series with runners in scoring position. NATIONALS 7, MARLINS 6, 10 innings — At Washington, pinch-hitter Corey Brown singled to drive in Ian Desmond with Washington’s winning run in the bottom of the 10th. After Adam LaRoche singled off Chad Guadin (3-2) to open the inning, Desmond singled him to third and Danny Espinosa was intentionally walked to load the bases. After a forceout at home, Brown blooped a single to right. BRAVES 11, METS 3 — At New York, Kris Medlen extended Atlanta’s scoreless streak to 31 innings — its best string in more than 20 years — and slumping Brian McCann drove in four runs with four hits. A tornado touched down in Queens about 15 miles away several hours before the game. Dark, ominous clouds swept in later, causing a 75-minute rain delay after the sixth inning. CUBS 4, PIRATES 3 — At Pittsburgh, Jeff Samardzija pitched the Cubs’ first complete game in his final start of the season. David DeJesus singled in Welington Castillo with two outs in the eighth for the go-ahead run after Pittsburgh had tied the game at 3 in the bottom of the seventh. REDS 5, ASTROS 1 — At Cincinnati, Bronson Arroyo extended his personal winning streak to five games and Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips hit solo home runs for Cincinnati. Phillips and Joey Votto both had two hits to help Arroyo improve to 8-1 over his last nine starts and 9-2 since July 6. BREWERS 6, CARDINALS 3 — At St. Louis, Aramis Ramirez had three hits, including his 22nd home run, to lead Milwaukee. Ricky Weeks added a solo home run and Ryan Braun went 3 for 5 with a run scored for Milwaukee. Carlos Gomez went 2 for 4 and drove in two runs. The Associated Press

Kansas State linebacker records team-high 10 tackles against former team

What can Brown do? Quite a lot By Corbin McGuire

THE CAPITAL-JOURNAL

mike gunnoe/special to the capital-journal

Linebacker Arthur Brown led No. 21 Kansas State with 10 tackles during Saturday’s 52-13 win against Miami, his former school.

MANHATTAN — Arthur Brown said before Saturday’s game against Miami that he wasn’t going to play with any personal vengeance against the school he once suited up for. Brown continues to insist he approaches every game the same, which can only mean one thing: he plays every game with a vengeance. “He says that but you got to know that he has to feel a certain way about it,” Justin Tuggle said. “He played there so you know he has a lot of friends still on the team and he knows some coaches. “Even though he may have said it may not have been personal, I know maybe deep inside he had a little bit of it to give a little extra out there.“ Brown, who played two seasons for the Hurricanes before transferring to Kansas State, made his presence felt all over the field with his team-high 10 tackles.

“We approach every game the same. We prepare for the games the same,” Brown said. “This game in particular was a great one with me playing at Miami, but there was nothing personal against them.” Miami quarterback Stephen Morris learned of Brown’s abilities the hard way. Down 31-6 and only 3 yards standing in the way of the Hurricanes’ first touchdown, Brown planted Morris into the turf on third-and-goal for an 8-yard sack. Any thought of a Hurricane comeback was lost on the next play when they failed to convert on fourth-and-goal. “That’s a big play. You see them going in like they’re about to score a touchdown and we see the play, he reads it fast and makes a nice hit,” said Tuggle, who recorded his first career sack against the Hurricanes. “Big plays like that, we really feed off of that. We keep rolling off that on defense.” Brown had one of the Wildcats’ five total sacks after recording zero

“We heard that a lot at practice,” Tuggle said. “We heard that a lot around the complex and a lot in the media as well. We took it upon ourselves to go out there and get after the quarterback today and get after the offensive line.” The Hurricanes’ offensive line struggled against the Wildcats’ pressure in the running game as well. The Miami running game that ran for 208 yards against Boston College a week earlier managed only 40 yards against Brown and the Wildcats. “That was one of our goals this week to affect the quarterback and our defensive line did a great job of doing that,“ Brown said before weighing last year’s win over Miami with this year’s 52-13 victory. “Last year was definitely intense; it was great to watch. I would have to say this year tops it just being able to be out there and see our defense and to see our offense really play together,” Brown said. “I know that’s going to carry on throughout the season.”

Haskin: Cats botch trick, grab treat

and polls this early in the season. “It was great,’’ wide receiver Chris Harper said. “We were really efficient and real balanced all the way around. We were rolling.’’ Definitely. Of the 498 yards the Cats generated, 288 came on the ground and 210 through the air. They rushed for six touchdowns, yet the 11 times Klein did throw, nine balls were caught. Just one punt was needed, third downs were converted 8 of 11 times and the ball was controlled for 37-plus minutes. The domination was thorough. So much so that all the Miami greats who get introduced on Sunday Night Football may think twice before smugly saying “the U” to identify the college they attended. Bennie Blades, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Warren Sapp, Russell Maryland and many, many other greats all rolled their eyes and clicked their remotes watching the Miami defense they once represented get torched and gouged. The fact the blowout started early shook the young Hurricanes into a panic. Quarterback Stephen Morris managed 215 yards passing, but he also lost two fumbles as K-State administered five sacks and secured three takeaways. The mismatch was so one-sided that afterward, the Wildcats’ worst snap was a popular topic, if only because of its comic value. Sure, the botched trick play from the Miami 1-yard line could have seriously backfired. The Cats settled for a field goal attempt, which Anthony Cantele missed. Then the Hurricanes drove downfield, but only converted the break into a field goal of their own and still trailed 24-6 at halftime. Do not, however, read too much into the attempted reverse Harper was supposed to run. Yes, Klein failed to deliver the no-look pitch and was assessed a fumble. And no, Snyder should never attempt such a play — “We got fancy,’’ he said — when he’s got the best rushing QB in college football to convert from a yard out. Still, the Cats practiced the reverse all week. Which means, with Snyder in charge, all the gadgetry seemingly was perfected. “I got sick of running it,’’ Harper said. “If you’d seen us practice, it was nice, but it wasn’t nice today.’’ “If it works it’s amazing and we’d be talking about that,’’ Klein added. “At least it didn’t cost us too bad.’’ Not at all. Honestly, had the Cats not been flowing so smoothly, Snyder may not have been inclined to try such foolery. Despite that disaster, K-State showed enough offensive diversity to make future opponents type out a long checklist. “We got better,’’ Snyder said. They looked good doing it too. Convincingly good. Enough to shape them as Big 12 contenders, at least going into that showdown in two weeks at Oklahoma. Yet Snyder, no matter what plays he runs or what message he delivers, won’t trick himself into letting the Miami rout affect the Cats’ preparedness. “You try diligently,’’ he said, “not to let anyone in the program get satisfied.’’ Kevin Haskin can be reached at kevin.haskin@cjonline.com.

sacks as a team against Missouri State. Vai Lutui said it’s hard to fully appreciate Brown’s talents by only seeing him live. “You can’t really see it until you watch film and when you see Arthur make those plays from sideline to sideline, its really humbling,” Lutui said. “And you know he’s going to go to the league.” Senior defensive end Adam Davis also made game-changing plays, including forcing two fumbles and recording two sacks. Brown picked up one of Davis’ forced fumbles, and the offense converted the Hurricane turnover into a touchdown in five plays. “I would imagine they probably, coaches and players alike, get tired of hearing me talk about pass rush, sacks and hurries,” Snyder said of getting pressure on the quarterback. Tuggle said the defense heard about its zero sacks against Missouri State nearly everywhere they went.

Cats: K-State’s defense again shines in red zone Continued from Page 1D

see it.” Waiting until midway through the third quarter a week ago to put away Missouri State, the Wildcats didn't waste any time in the second game. They got the fast start they have been seeking for so long, scoring three touchdowns and one field goal on their first four possessions to build a 24-6 halftime lead. "We wanted to come out and make a statement," said safety Jarard Milo. Indeed, they did. The offense put together a 13-play, 68-yard scoring drive on the game's opening series, capped by the first of quarterback Collin Klein's three short touchdown runs from 1 yard out. Then it was the defense's turn. Miami did pick up two first downs the first time it touched the ball, but on third-and-1 from the KSU 41 defensive end Adam Davis forced a fumble by Canes running back Eduardo Clement and Arthur Brown — who had 10 tackles against his former team — pounced on the loose ball. It took the Wildcats only six plays to convert that turnover into a touchdown, a 6-yard run by Klein for a 14-0 lead. The early turnover and touchdown conversion got K-State rolling to a 24-6 halftime lead, but Miami coach Al Golden didn't view that as a major turning point. "There are a lot of plays," Golden said. "We had a bunch of opportunities to score in the red zone. We only had one takeaway. There were just a bunch of turning points. "One play was not the difference in the game. They outcoached us and they outplayed us." The difference, as it was last week, was KState's red zone defense. Miami reached the red zone four times and came away with two first-half field goals by Jake Wieclaw before finally scoring a touchdown with under four minutes left in the game. Hurricanes quarterback Stephen Morris was 19 of 26 for 215 yards and freshman running back Duke Johnson — who made a splashy debut last week with TD runs of 54 and 56 yards against Boston College — managed only 19 yards on six carries. "Defensively, I was pleased," Snyder said. "We held them to (40) yards rushing. The passing game, we gave up a little bit of yardage (222) but it wasn't near what it was last week. This (Miami) is a team that has the ability to run around and throw the ball.

"There was a couple of schemes we had some difficulty with that allowed them to get out of some third-and-longs and keep possession of the ball, but overall I thought we improved defensively. I was pleased with the progress we made." K-State's offense came up with a balanced effort, led by tailback John Hubert with 106 yards and one touchdown on 16 carries. Klein rushed for 71 yards on 22 carries and completed 9 of 11 passes for 210 yards and one touchdown, a 27-yarder to Curry Sexton. "In reality, we were not as balanced as were last week," Snyder said. "At the outset of the ballgame we were throwing the ball a little bit more. On first down last week we were 50-50, half of it was run and half of it was pass, and (Saturday) we were far more invested in the run. "The yardage (498 total yards) is the same but as far as where the emphasis was and how much we ran the ball and threw it, we ran the ball more early in the ballgame."

MANHATTAN — Curry Sexton had dreamed about the moment, but he didn't know if it would come and how he would react. The reality check came in the second quarter Saturday when Sexton caught his first touchdown pass for Kansas State, a 27yard toss from Collin Klein in the No. 21 Wildcats' 52-13 victory over Miami. “Deante Burton and I were talking on the sideline and he asked me what I'd do if I ever scored,” Sexton said. “I said I didn't know, just run around, I guess. “I don't know what was going through my head. I don't know what I was doing. I just took off running. It was pandemonium.” Sexton, a sophomore from Abilene, caught four passes for 43 yards last season, including a 27yard reception. His magic number seems to be 27, that being the distance covered on his first touchdown. On second-and-12, Sexton was wide open over the middle and snagged the throw from Klein, giving K-State a 24-3 lead with 6:10 left in the second quarter. “They played the perfect coverage for that call,” Sexton said. “Collin saw that it was going to work because he saw the corner drop into cover three. I couldn't have been more wide open and Collin couldn't have thrown a better ball.” It was Sexton's only catch of the day and Klein's only touchdown pass. “What was pleasing to me is not the touchdown, just the fact that he's a great young man that works diligently,” coach Bill Snyder said of Sexton. “If touchdowns are significant, then he deserves it.” MAKING IT WORK UP FRONT: Offensive guard Nick Puetz didn't play because of a foot injury and guard Boston Stiverson missed his second game with an injury. Tackle Cody Whitehair moved to Puetz's left guard spot and Tavon Rooks started at right tackle, where Whitehair started last week. The line paved the way for a 288-yard rushing day for the Wildcats and gave up only one sack, three less than Miami

recorded in its first game. "I thought they did a decent job," Snyder said. "I was pleased with the way they played snap after snap. We had some good and not so good plays, but they were competitive and they fought the battle." QUICK KICKS n Snyder was happy with the Wildcats' play on special teams until the end when Duke Johnson broke a 77-yard kickoff return to the KSU 17 that set up Miami's lone touchdown. “I was really impressed with the special teams, with the exception of the last one,” Snyder said. “I stuck my ugly head in the huddle and said you are one kick away from having the best performance of any kickoff unit at any time in Kansas State's history.

Kansas defense gets fill of Rice

Pick suffers injury By Austin Meek

The Capital-Journal

Jayhawks allow 403 total yards in loss By Mike Vernon

THE CAPITAL-JOURNAL

LAWRENCE — Charlie Weis blamed all parts of his team for what happened Saturday afternoon. He blamed himself, the offense, the special teams and the defense. When it came down to it, though, it was the defense that was on the field at the end. A defense that gave up 403 yards to Rice in KU’s 25-24 loss to the Owls. A defense that couldn’t stop Rice on its lastminute drive to beat the Jayhawks. A defense that struggled mightily during two scoring drives of 90 or more yards for the Owls. Yes, they allowed all of these woeful feats to Rice. The same Rice team that finished 91st in the nation in total yards last season. The Rice that is the second smallest school in the Football Bowl Subdivision. The same Rice that was 0-20 against the Big 12 in its history before Saturday. “You don’t ever see a loss coming like this,” junior linebacker Huldon Tharpe said. “We lost to a team that we should’ve closed out.” It was that failure to close that led to the Jayhawks’ first loss of the season, and it was the defense that failed on multiple chances to halt the Owls during the game’s final minute. Three plays after starting its final drive, Rice found itself in a dooming fourth-down situation. They needed 4 yards to save the game, so the Jayhawks decided to bring pressure on junior quarterback Taylor McHargue. The blitz worked — initially at least. McHargue dumped a pass into the flat to junior running back Charles Ross short of the first down. That’s when junior safety Dexter Linton whiffed on a tackle, allowing Ross to gallop 7 yards for the first down. “They competed to the end of the game,” senior cornerback Greg Brown said. “I was shell shocked. “ Two plays later, both the Jayhawks and the Owls found themselves in similar live-or-die situations. On third-and-7, the Owls ran a quarterback draw and ran into a wall by the name of Josh Williams. Williams, a senior defensive lineman, let the slick quarterback slide past him to keep Rice breathing. Senior defensive end Toben Opurum has seen a number of deflating losses in his time at KU, but he said it was the way his team lost that made the failed effort sting harder. “There were opportunities all game where somebody didn’t make a sack or somebody didn’t make a tackle or somebody didn’t hold his block long enough,” Opurum said. “We should’ve made plays and we didn’t.” It all came down to making plays at the end of the game, and that’s when the Jayhawks’ defense failed and the Rice offense prevailed. “It’s all about finishing,” said Weis, whose Jayhawks will begin Big 12 play next week by playing host to TCU. “My biggest disappointment is that we didn’t finish.”

this,” Weis said, referring to his players. “Am I going to have a lot of people throwing in the towel, or am I going to have even more people stepping up to try and make it right? “I can’t wave my magic wand and give you the answer to that, but I’m betting on more guys fighting to get it right.” If not, the Jayhawks could be looking at a season every bit as miserable as the ones they endured the past two years under Turner Gill. That was the only possible takeaway after the Jayhawks lost at home to Rice, a team that entered the game 0-20 against Big 12 opponents since the conference was formed. For much of the second half, KU looked poised to extend that streak. The Jayhawks were never especially dominant, but they led 24-13 after marching for a touchdown on the first drive of the second half. The game seemed to go into sleep mode after that, with neither team doing anything that would warrant anyone paying attention. Then, somewhat abruptly, Rice drove for a touchdown and trailed only 24-22 with 4:47 remaining. The Owls attempted a twopoint conversion to tie the game, but Tunde Bakare broke up the play in the back of the end zone. KU regained possession, needing one good drive to exhaust the clock. Instead, the Jayhawks got an interception from Crist, who left his feet and heaved the ball downfield on third-and-8. Rice’s Bryce Callahan intercepted it, giving the Owls possession at their own 47-yard line. Publicly, at least, Weis refused to criticize his quarterback for the decision, even though it gave the Owls a short field on what proved to be the game-winning drive. “As long as you have a one-

“When the game is close and you have breakdowns that happen on all three facets of the game, somebody better accept that accountability,” Weis said. “I’ll gladly be that person.” KU has 10 games remaining, long enough for the Jayhawks to turn things around and long enough to feel like an eternity if they don’t. Either way, it's a different season now than it was a day ago. “We’ve got a whole lot more season left to go,” defensive end Toben Opurum said. “It’s real frustrating for us to lose this game, but we can’t let this hold us back for too long. “We’ve got a long way to go until the season’s over.” Rice Kansas

Kansas quarterback Dayne Crist threw a costly interception in Saturday’s fourth quarter against Jared Williams and Rice. on-one matchup and don’t throw the ball right to the defensive guy, it’s always OK,” Weis said. “It’s not OK to throw an interception, now. I’m just saying that when it’s one-on-one, you’re counting on your guy either catching the ball (or breaking up the play), but you’re certainly not counting on their guy catching the ball.” Crist’s second start wasn’t much better than his debut. The senior transfer completed 16 of 28 passes for 144 yards and a touchdown, throwing interceptions on his first and last tries. “My initial read wasn’t there,” Crist said, referring to his fourthquarter interception. “I tried to give our guy a chance to extend the game and ultimately move the chains and run out the clock.” Weis refused to pin the loss on a particular unit, and he had a point. The defense also had

opportunities to win the game, but a missed tackle by Dexter Linton allowed the Owls to convert a fourth down on their final drive. Another missed tackle by Josh Williams freed quarterback Taylor McHargue for a 12-year scramble, setting up Rice for the game-winner. Boswell, a Groza candidate who has made six kicks of 50 yards or longer in his career, boomed the ball through the uprights without wavering. “There were several opportunities for this game to be over with us winning it, and that’s not the way it turned out,” Weis said. KU’s special teams weren’t blameless either, as Ron Doherty missed field goals of 40 and 53 yards that could have extended the lead in the second half. For Weis, all of these mistakes pointed to one thing.

LAWRENCE — Adding injury to insult, Kansas lost receiver Kale Pick in the process of losing Saturday’s game to Rice. Pick went up for a pass in the third quarter and appeared to take a helmet to the back of his knee. He stood up momentarily before dropping back to the turf, then spent the rest of the game standing on the sideline. Coach Charlie Weis didn’t know the severity of Pick’s injury after the game. “I have no idea about the injuries right now,” Weis said. “He was trying to get off the field in a hurry at the end of the game after the alma mater. I told him to slow down, I know that. I’ll have a better idea (Sunday).” Coincidence or not, KU’s passing game didn’t produce much after Pick went out. “It’s unfortunate,” quarterback Dayne Crist. “We wish Kale all the best. No one is rooting for him harder than I am. “It’s tough to lose any guy, but at the same time, we have to rally.” Safety Lubbock Smith also limped to the sideline on Rice’s final drive, and Prinz Kande was shaken up after drawing the start at linebacker. TRICKERY GOES AWRY: Weis went bold and daring on KU’s first series again this week, but the result wasn’t what KU envisioned. KU opened the game in its Jayhawk formation, with Tony Pierson taking a shotgun snap and Crist split wide. The second play was a handoff to Daymond Patterson, who flipped the ball to Crist. Crist was hit as he attempted a downfield throw, and the ball fluttered into the arms of Bryce Callahan. “When you call a special play early in the game and you give up pressure on a play that (shouldn’t have) pressure, it’s really disappointing,” Weis said. “The worst thing that should happen is a long foul ball.” The Jayhawks also fumbled a kickoff in the first five minutes of the game, but the net result was a 3-0 Rice lead. QUICK KICKS n Rice is now 1-20 against Big 12 teams since the league was formed. n Rice linebacker Kyle Prater is the son of John Prater, an offensive lineman at KU from 1980-81. n Saturday’s attendance was 44,383. The Jayhawks drew 48,084, their largest home crowd of the season, against Northern Illinois in Week Two last year. n Freshman linebacker Schyler Miles was inserted as a fullback on a goal-line play and recorded a 1-yard touchdown run on his first carry.

yards and four touchdowns before giving way to Joel Piper in the third quarter. The Ichabods forced a three-and-out before Buhler shed a Tiger defender and found a wide-open Jordan Hart for a 40yard touchdown on the first play after a Fort Hays punt. Fort Hays then continued its miserable start with a fumble that was recovered by Bryce Atagi at the 13-yard-line. An unsportsmanlike conduct penalty pushed the Ichabods back to the

28-yard-line, but Washburn scored six plays later on a 1-yard plunge by Hayden Groves. Shortly after Washburn was forced to punt for the first time, the Ichabods got the ball right back after WU pressure allowed safety Calvin Kenney to pick off a fluttering pass from Tiger quarterback Tarean Austin. Washburn predictably made Fort Hays pay again, with Buhler hitting Mark Fancher for a 19-yard score. Fort Hays fumbled away the ball on the ensuing kickoff for its third turnover

before the first quarter mercifully ended with Washburn up by 28 points. The second quarter was highlighted by a couple of impressive plays by the Ichabods. Buhler hit Fancher with a 52yard bomb with 7:48 left in the half for his fourth TD. Kameron Stewart then capped off the half by breaking several tackles and racing 32 yards to give the Ichabods a 42-0 halftime lead. Fort Hays finally got something going on its second possession of the second half,  with a nine-play, 94-yard drive that was capped off by a 1-yard touchdown

from Austin. Washburn kicker Jeremy Linn booted a 30-yard field goal with 2:55 left in the third quarter to put the Ichabods up 45-6 before the Tigers added a pair of touchdowns in the final quarter. The Ichabods will return to action at 6 p.m. Saturday when they play MIAA newcomer Northeastern State at Yager Stadium. Rick Peterson Jr. can be reached at richard.peterson@cjonline.com.

GREAT OUTDOORS WITH MARC MURRELL

Youngsters, elders take to the field

PHOTOGRAPHS BY ROSE CORBY

Kids from Big Brothers Big Sisters, as well as other local area youth, got to participate in a special dove hunt on opening day last weekend. The Shawnee County Hunter Education Association sponsored the hunt and a total of 20 kids from their August class got to hunt doves on a KDWPT-managed dove field on the Kaw River Wildlife Area near Topeka.

BBBS youth hunt utilizes field in Kaw River Wildlife Area to give 20 youth chance at doves A youngster’s first hunt is often memorable. They’re like kids at Christmas in anticipation of the sights and smells of their first day in the field. Most veteran hunters remember their first experiences down to the minute details. Last weekend a group of kids from MARC around Shawnee MURRELL County got to experience their own special hunt paving the way for plenty of memories. The youth dove hunt on opening day of the Kansas season was sponsored by the Shawnee County Hunter Education Association. This hunt was nothing new to the organization and they’ve been in the business of passing on the outdoor tradition for a couple of decades. “We’ve been doing hunts like this for 18 or 19 years now,” said SCHEA member Mark Gauntt. “We started taking kids from our March (Hunter Education) class turkey hunting with volunteer instructors willing to take a kid to their turkey spot. We buy the tags and take them hunting.” Shortly after that first turkey hunt that they started a fall hunt where kids from their August class got to go on a dove hunt. It’s been going strong ever since. “We’ve been fortunate enough over the years the wildlife area managers (for Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism) have let us have a field where we could take the kids before all the adults got in there and take the kids hunting.” Volunteer hunter education instructors are paired with each child, and 10 kids get to hunt in the morning and 10 kids get to go that evening. “We provide all the shotgun shells and guns to anyone that needs one,” Gauntt said. “We always ask that a parent come so that they can enjoy and share in the hunt. We hunt until all the doves stop (flying) or the kids are tired.” So opening morning Saturday kids from the SCHEA’s most recent hunter education class, comprised of kids from Big Brothers Big Sisters programs, as well as other local area youth, descended upon a managed dove plot on the Kaw River Wildlife Area. Ages ranged from 11 years old (the minimum age allowed to take the Kansas hunter education class) to 16 year old kids. “They plant sunflowers in there for the doves and then mow them down,” Gauntt said. “It’s a permit area and the birds were crazy in there that day. The 14-year-old kid from BBBS I was mentoring shot about 150 shells and got seven birds. They all had a great time.”

The SCHEA provides one volunteer instructor for each child participating in the hunt. They encourage at least one parent or guardian to tag along on the hunt to get to experience the outdoors. These four, from left, Mark Gauntt, Dale Butler, Malachi Hinnant, 12, and Rochelle King all participated.

Smiles were the norm for kids who got to participate in the special dove hunting opportunity sponsored by the SCHEA. An even bigger smile was warranted here when 13-year-old Braden Ewing killed a banded dove. The SCHEA has been working hard to allow kids the opportunity to experience what many value and hold dear in the outdoor experience of hunting. “We’d like to recruit more kids into hunting,” Gauntt said. “In a metro area like this you’ll have a lot of kids that may take a hunter education class and never go hunting, so if we can give them an opportunity and show them what it’s like we might make hunters out of them.” Success is important to any activity,

whether you’re talking about shooting a basketball or shooting targets or game birds. The SCHEA strives to increase the chances for kids to succeed with these types of hunts and others. They’ll take 10 more kids from their October class on a pheasant hunt on a controlled shooting area. “We want to give them a good, safe experience, but also one they’ll have some success in,” Gauntt said. “We’ll buy at least three birds per kid and the kids get to watch the dogs work and the birds flush and they usually have some success and experience what it’s like.” Mentoring is a big part of any of the SCHEA hunts as well according to Gauntt. “We’ll have at least one instructor per student during any hunt,” Gauntt said. “We want them there to maintain safety and give them guidance and help them in their shooting techniques.” These types of hunts may be as rewarding for the volunteers as the kids who are doing the shooting. Seeing the smile on the face of a child who has just taken their first game bird or big game animal is rewarding in itself. It’s admirable there are so many people willing to help with this cause. “It was a lot of fun and the kids had a great time,” Gauntt said. “It is always very worthwhile.” Marc Murrell can be reached at mmoutdoors@cox.net.

Colby Figge, 10, has caught several walleye but none qualified as a keeper. On July 8, he landed a 18 1/2 inch walleye at Melvern Lake. He is the son of Rex and Sherry Figge.

THE POACHER of a golden eagle in Trego County was sentenced Aug. 21 after pleading guilty to killing the immature raptor in 2011. Chad Irvin, of LaCrosse, pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor count of violating the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. He killed the eagle with a 12-gauge shotgun from a vehicle while hunting with family members. Irvin was ordered to pay a $5,000 fine and restitution of $3,000; placed on supervised probation for three years, during which time he may not hunt, fish or trap; required to complete 50 hours of community service; and ordered to forfeit the shotgun used to kill the eagle.
