Good Weather Rewards Tennis, Track Clubs Members

The Northeast Kingdom Senior Tennis Club was delighted the rain held off until the end of action on July 1.

Ron Brokaw won all three sets to win in Waterford. George Pierce won 13 games, Scott Whitcomb 10 and Don DeLacey nine.

Red-hot Richard Smith continued his torris play winning three sets on Kiwanis courts 1, followed by Neil Raphel (13 games), Don Hjelm (11) and Ned Andrews (10). Court 2 had John Gebbie undefeated in three sets, while Alan Rowe was close behind at 14 games and Rick Stodola and Steve Bennett tied at 12. On court 3 Dudley Bell had his way with Marcel Dionne.

NEK SR. TRACK & FIELD: The club enjoyed a comfortable evening June 27 while adding a couple of new members at the Bob Heath track.

Tennis ace Arne Johnson moved from the court to the track infield as he worked toward his old javelin form. Charlotte and Stu Farina combined walking and discus throwing for another healthy workout.




If you have been thinking about attending the Thursday evening sessions, drop by between 6-8 p.m.

NHL

Seguin, Eriksson Highlight 7-Player Deal

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins are sending Tyler Seguin to the Dallas Stars for fellow forward Loui Eriksson as part of a seven-player trade.

In addition to Eriksson, the Bruins are also acquiring forwards Matt Fraser, Reilly Smith and defenseman Joe Morrow in the deal announced Thursday. Dallas will receive Seguin, forward Rich Peverley and defenseman Ryan Button.

Seguin, chosen with the No. 2 pick by Boston in the 2010 draft, led the Bruins in scoring during the 2011-12 season. He was a member of the 2011 Stanley Cup championship team and was selected as an NHL All-Star in 2012.

Eriksson, a 2011 All-Star, had 29 points in 48 games for the Stars last season. He has a career plus-31 rating.

CANADIENS: Danny Briere is unlikely to hear any more boos in Montreal.

The free agent forward from Gatineau, Que., has agreed to terms on a two-year contract with the Canadiens.

The Philadelphia Flyers last week used a compliance buyout on the final two seasons of the eight-year, $52 million deal Briere signed in 2007. Because he turned down an offer from the Canadiens to sign with the Flyers that year, Briere was booed whenever Philadelphia visited Montreal.

Now the 35-year-old returns to his native Quebec with a deal reportedly worth $4 million per season.

Briere had only six goals and 10 assists in the lockout shortened 2013 season. He has 282 goals and 373 assists in 847 career NHL games, but was mostly coveted for his postseason play.

In the Flyers' run to the Stanley Cup final in 2009, Briere had 12 goals and 18 assists in 23 games. In 108 career playoff games, he has 50 goals and 59 assists.

GOLF

Gainey, Wagner start hot at Greenbrier Classic

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- Tommy Gainey and Johnson Wagner each shot an 8-under 62 on Thursday to share a two-stroke lead after the first round of the Greenbrier Classic.

Webb Simpson and Jin Park were close behind after 64s. Daniel Summerhays, Tag Ridings, Steven Bowditch and Neal Lancaster were another shot back.

Players could lift, clean and place their balls after rain fell prior to the start of play.

Gainey and Wagner had bogey-free rounds in the morning. Wagner was 8 under after 12 holes but finished with six straight pars. Both could use a good week in West Virginia. Wagner doesn't have a top 10 finish this year. Gainey's best showing is sixth.

Bill Haas, the winner at Congressional last week, had a 68, while Phil Mickelson came off his runner-up finish at the U.S. Open with a 74.

FRENCH OPEN: Anders Hansen of Denmark shot a 5-under 66 to lead by a stroke after the first round of the French Open on a golf course that punished some of the main contenders on Thursday.

Hansen made seven birdies and two bogeys on the Albatross course of Le Golf National, which will host the Ryder Cup in 2018.

Hansen finished fourth at the French Open in 2009 and his best result this year was a third place at the Malaysian Open in March.

Past winners Martin Kaymer of Germany (68) and Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain (69) stayed in contention, along with 2010 U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland (69) and American golfer Matt Kuchar (70).
