Ex-Osan swimmer now making the grade at West Point

Perhaps one of Sports Blog Nation's favorite name-game student-athletes ever to come along. Evinrude is the name of an outboard motor outfit, formed by Ole Evinrude in 1907 in Milwaukee.

News and notes about Pacific prep starts now gone

News and notes from the States and elsewhere about former Pacific high school stars now plying their trades in new places:

Arnold V is on the roster of the Warriors, whose varsity teams play in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference. Arnold, a Seoul American graduate of 2014 who played for the Falcons for three seasons, is the great-great-great grandson of the father of the modern Air Force, Gen. Henry Harley “Hap” Arnold.

YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan – Phil Delisi has played The Game as long as he can remember.

“I’ve pretty much had a club since I could walk, I think,” the Yokota senior said, moments after he signed a national letter of intent to golf for UCLA on full scholarship next fall.

11th API cross-country meet: Shorter course?

Slight modifications to the Asia-Pacific Invitational cross-country meet course from a year ago created a slightly easier race last Friday but “also probably shortening it,” according to a longtime Far East cross-country observer.

Bruce Carrick, a longtime Tokyo-based cross-country and track and field watcher, said the course, on the campus of John F. Kennedy High School in Upper Tumon, Guam, is listed at 5,000 meters, but the times of the field suggest that it was “200 or more meters short.”
