Wide World of Tiger Sports – April 29 Sports

Are we back to March with this sudden burst of cool weather? It is supposed to be 33 degrees tonight. At 2:30 on Saturday afternoon, it was 88. Interesting. At least we can see leaves on the trees now.

Men’s lacrosse (10-7) will await a possible NCAA or ECAC postseason bid after falling to Ithaca in the Empire 8 Championship game on Sunday. The squad put up a valiant effort, considering they played at 7 p.m. Friday, beat Stevens in the E8 semifinal, then arrived back in Rochester around 4 a.m. Saturday morning, then got back on a bus to Ithaca on Sunday morning to play their second game in 43 hours. It was announced on Tuesday that 10 Tigers earned 2008 All-Empire 8 honors.

Softball (16-18), wraps up the regular season with doubleheaders at Keuka on Tuesday, and a possible make-up at home against SUNY Morrisville later in the week.

Baseball (16-12, 7-5 Empire 8) won four of five games during the week, including a sweep at Stevens on Saturday and a split on Sunday. On Saturday and Sunday, the Tigers host St. John Fisher in a pair of doubleheaders. If you are planning on coming Saturday, note the doubleheader starts at 11 a.m. You should plan on either getting here early or taking a shuttle, as the inagural Imagine RIT: Innovation and Creativity Festival will be underway. Geoff Dornes was named the Empire 8 Pitcher of the Week.

Women’s lacrosse
(6-8, 3-5 Empire 8) had its season end after losing to SUNY Brockport on Thursday. Five Tigers earned 2008 All-Empire 8 Postseason honors.

Men’s Tennis
(8-5) had its season end on Saturday in the Empire 8 semifinal. The loss snapped a six-game winning streak.

Outdoor track and field competed at the Houghton Highlander Invitational on Saturday. Both the men and women enjoyed good performances. The Tigers compete at U of R for the NYSCTC Championships this weekend.

By the way, why should we care about Roger Clemens and this latest allegation of an affair with a country singer? Why is that news? I don’t care for the guy, personally, but I think sometimes the media likes to delve into people’s personal lives a little too much. Can a celebrity live a normal life?
