Lyndon State Baseball Earns No. 4 Seed

With a 20-3 conference mark, Castleton enters the upcoming North Atlantic Conference Baseball Championship as the top seed and will host the three day, double-elimination tournament beginning Friday.

Castleton will take on No. 4 seed Lyndon State in Game 1 at 11 a.m. Second seed Husson and third-seeded UMaine-Farmington will meet in Game 2.

Three games are slated for Saturday with the conference champion set to be crowned Sunday. Lyndon State finished the season at 9-17 overall and 9-15 in conference play.

LEMNAH: Saint Michael's College softball senior Greer Lemnah, a Lyndon Institute graduate, was named to the Northeast-10 Conference Weekly Honor Roll for the week ending on Sunday, April 27, earning the accolade for the third time this spring.

Lemnah batted 12-for-29 (.414) last week with two RBIs and a walk. Lemnah had at least one hit in eight of 10 games, posting four multi-hit outings. She finished the season on a six-game hitting streak. Among the opponents against which she rattled off two-hit contests were NE-10 Northeast Division regular-season co-champion Southern New Hampshire University last Monday, Franklin Pierce University on Tuesday and Thursday, and Saint Anselm College on Wednesday.

Lemnah led the Purple Knights in batting (.327), hits (34) and runs (9) while appearing in all 35 games in left field, making 34 starts. She became the 11th player in program history with 100 hits for a career, ultimately finishing tied for eighth with 112 knocks. Lemnah is also sixth in school annals in games (154) and at bats (451).


Seahawks Makes Earl Thomas Highest-paid Safety

SEATTLE -- The Seattle Seahawks completed their four-year extension with All-Pro free safety Earl Thomas, making him the highest-paid safety in the NFL. The deal is worth $40 million over four years and will keep Thomas in a Seahawks uniform through the 2018 season.

Thomas is a two-time first-team All-Pro selection and regarded as the top safety in the NFL. He was rewarded as such with a deal that is expected to top the contract Jairus Byrd received from New Orleans.

Thomas is the second major extension Seattle has announced this offseason after locking up coach Pete Carroll through 2016. Now the question is if they can get an extension done with All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman.


Roger Clemens in Court for Settlement Talks

NEW YORK -- Former pitcher Roger Clemens and his onetime strength coach came face-to-face on Tuesday in a bid to settle their long-running legal dispute, but they emerged from a closed-door meeting without a deal.

A judge had summoned Clemens and Brian McNamee to federal court in Brooklyn for settlement talks aimed at heading off a trial in the defamation case. McNamee's lawyer emerged saying an agreement wasn't likely.

"I think this is a case where the lines are deeply drawn in the sand," said attorney Richard Emery. "I certainly expect there's going to be a trial in this case."

It was the first time Clemens and McNamee had been in the same room together -- besides a courtroom -- since at least 2007, Emery said. His client, he added, has struggled in recent years with health and financial problems.

Clemens and his attorneys left the courthouse without speaking to reporters.


Ambrose, Mears Penalized for Fistfight

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- NASCAR punished Marcos Ambrose and Casey Mears on Tuesday for their post-race altercation in the garage at Richmond International Raceway that led to Ambrose punching Mears in the face.

Ambrose was fined $25,000 and placed on probation through May 28. Mears was fined $15,000 and received the same probation.

The two had been racing for a top-20 finish Saturday night when something occurred on the track to anger Mears. He confronted Ambrose in the garage area after the race, and shoved the Australian as Ambrose seemed to be walking away.

Ambrose responded with a right hook to Mears' eye that drew blood. He has not commented on the incident, but Richard Petty Motorsports issued a statement saying Ambrose would not appeal the penalty.


Real Madrid Reaches Champions League Final

MUNICH -- Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals apiece as Real Madrid advanced to the Champions League final by stunning title holder Bayern Munich 4-0 on Tuesday.

Madrid completed a 5-0 aggregate victory and will now play either Chelsea or Atletico Madrid in the May 24 final in Lisbon. Bayern's slumped to its worst home defeat in the competition, and equaled its heaviest loss overall -- 4-0 away to Barcelona in 2009.

Madrid had never won in Munich in 10 previous matches, losing nine of them. But this time, Carlo Ancelotti's team put its stamp on the game early and struck with awesome efficiency.

Ramos headed home in the 16th and 20th minutes, and Ronaldo raised his tally to a competition record 16 goals for the season to take Madrid one win away from a record 10th title. Madrid is in its 13th final.

Madrid had lost three consecutive semifinals, including a 2012 shootout when Ramos missed a penalty.
