WMR Windeler's State Bid Falls Short

DERRY, N.H. -- White Mountains Regional junior Lisa Windeler won her first two matches in this past Saturday's individual New Hampshire state tournament, then met with defeat by a score of 6-3, 6-2 to Londonderry's Ana Milosavljecic.

One of 30 players in the draw, Windeler was also one of just three Division III players. The other two, from Bow, were eliminated in their first matches

The pro-set format was used in the first two rounds. The 24th-seeded Windeler ousted two Bedford players in the first two rounds by the same one-sided 8-2 score. Julie Aichinger and Anna Corrao were the two players from the Division I school to fall to Windeler.

It didn't go as well in the quarters against Milosavljevic, and was the German foreign exchange student's first loss of the season. She came into the tournament undefeated, having lost just three sets all season.

The semifinals and the championship of the tournament will be played today, also at Pinkerton Academy.

NBA

AP: Derek Fisher To Coach NY Knicks

Derek Fisher has agreed to become the next coach of the New York Knicks and will be introduced at a news conference Tuesday morning, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.

The Knicks did not confirm the hiring, other than saying they were planning a "major announcement."

The person who confirmed the deal to AP spoke on condition of anonymity because neither side authorized the public disclosure of any information related to the deal.

The 39-year-old Fisher just completed his 18th season, finishing his career with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He played under Knicks President Phil Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers, and helped that franchise win five NBA titles.

Fisher's hiring means that next season, both teams in New York will have former point guards barely removed from playing days at the helms.

It worked for the Brooklyn Nets, who made the Eastern Conference semifinals this season with first-year coach Jason Kidd, and now the Knicks will hope that Fisher can have the same success.

Olympic Star Van Dyken Severs Spine in Accident

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona -- Six-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer Amy Van Dyken severed her spine in an all-terrain vehicle accident over the weekend, and told emergency workers she could not move her toes or feel anything touching her legs.

The 41-year-old swimmer, who goes by her married name Van Dyken Rouen, was injured Friday. She was airlifted to a hospital and had surgery to stabilize her spine.

A letter from the Van Dyken and Rouen families said she severed her spinal cord at the T11 vertebrae and that the broken vertebrae came within millimeters of rupturing her aorta.

A report by the Show Low Police Department said the ATV that Rouen was driving hit a curb in a restaurant parking lot and sent her over a drop-off between 1.5 to 2 meters.

Rouen was found lying on the ground next to the ATV. She was strapped to a backboard and airlifted to Scottsdale Osborn Medical Center.

Rouen starred at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, where she became the first U.S. female athlete to win four gold medals in a single games. She captured the 50-meter freestyle and 100 butterfly and also competed on the winning relay teams in the 400 free and 400 medley.

Four years later at Sydney, she added two more golds in the 400 free and 400 medley relays before retiring from competition.
