University of Maryland director of athletics Kevin Anderson has announced the hiring of Courtney Scott as head coach of the Maryland softball program. Scott, who was an assistant for Maryland in 2009 and 2010, has been part of coaching staffs that have made seven NCAA Tournament appearances in the last eight seasons.
Scott spent the last four seasons as an assistant coach at Louisville, helping to lead the Cardinals to the inaugural 2014 American Athletic Conference tournament crown. The Cardinals recorded a 176-60 (.746) cumulative record over Scott’s four seasons as an assistant, in addition to boasting four NFCA All-Americans, 29 all-conference honorees and four NCAA Tournament appearances.
“I would first like to thank Kevin Anderson, Kelly Mehrtens and Marcus Wilson for the opportunity to return to Maryland and lead the softball program,” Scott said. “I am incredibly excited about the vision and direction of the athletic department as it transitions into the Big Ten Conference. The University of Maryland has tremendous resources academically, athletically and geographically and I look forward to leading the softball program into a new era.” from umterps.com
Exciting–not even close. Rory was much the better player and proved my prediction of his victory on last week’s Terp Talk correct.
Tiger finished 70th –enough said
Rickie Fowler and Sergio finished 2 shots back at 15 under. Hard to believe Sergio’s key putt on 17 was 4 feet short as he was trying to make a late charge.
A spokesperson for British betting firm Ladbrokes confirmed on Sunday afternoon that it had held three bets that will allow Rory McIlroy’s father Gerry and his friends to make more than $300,000 off his son’s victory at Hoylake. Ladbrokes’ Rachel Bridge told ESPN.com that one bet — believed to be made by McIlroy’s father — was a 200-pound wager ($341) at 500/1 odds placed in 2004 for his son to win within 10 years. That bet will pay out $171,000. from espn.com
I still can’t believe that Team Invincible lost. Team Canada must have watched films of Maryland’s slow down offense of 2012 that usually just absolutely frustrated the opponents and perhaps led to the establishment of a shot clock in College lacrosse. Team USA just had minimal possessions and when goods shots were found, Canada’s Dillon Ward would make the stop, Kevin Crowley notched 5 goals for Team Canada. Rob Pannell continued his stellar play scoring once and dishing 3 assists.
