Titans’ May sets mark; Fast to regionals
NEW WILMINGTON, Pa.
The Westminster College men’s and women’s diving teams hosted Marywood University Thursday in the Westminster Diving Tune-Up.
Titan freshman Connor May broke the 1 Meter (11) school record with a score of 462.68. The record was previously set by Todd Knaus back in 1988 (446.05). May now holds all of the men’s diving records in school history. Sophomore Kaitlyn Fast also scored high enough to qualify for NCAA Regionals for the second-straight year. Fast finished first in the 1 Meter (397.20) and second in the 3 Meter (412.20). May, who qualified for Regionals earlier in the season, also placed first in the 3 Meter (448.73).
Following Fast in second was first-year Zoe Cable who placed third (364.95). Cable’s scores in both the 3 Meter and 1 Meter were good for third and fourth best in school history, respectively.
Struthers FCA to show ‘Woodlawn’ on Jan. 26
The Struthers Middle School Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) will be showing the movie “Woodlawn – The True Story,” on Jan. 26th from 7–9:15 p.m. in the Struthers Middle School auditorium. This event is free and open to the community.
“Woodlawn – The True Story” follows the government-mandated desegregation in 1973, where future pro football player Tony Nathan joins fellow African-American students at Woodlawn High School in Birmingham, Alabama.
As violence and anger erupt in the city, Woodlawn’s football coach allows an outsider to speak to his players. His message of hope and love leads to a spiritual awakening that inspires star athlete Nathan, his teammates and other members of the community to overcome the hate that surrounds them.
US Army challenging Golden Knights’ name
The U.S. Army has filed a challenge opposing the application of the NHL’s newest franchise to register the trademark “Las Vegas Golden Knights.”
In a claim filed Wednesday with the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board in suburban Washington, the Army claims it will be damaged by registration of the marque and says it has acquired exclusive rights that predate any rights claimed by the NHL team.
The Army says it has used the Golden Knights nickname since the late 1960s for its parachute team, public relations and recruiting, and claims it owns “common law rights” for the color schemes that combine black and gold and yellow and white.
The challenge by the U.S. Army was first reported by Sportslogos.net.
