Sports in a Minute: Hamilton in Holland

world traveler

Boston College freshman Jordyn Hamilton of Hampstead is just back from a week in Holland on a friendly with the United States U19 field hockey team. The former Pinkerton All-American scored four goals in 18 games last fall for the Eagles.

Seminole sensation

Orlando Sentinel’s Mike Bianchi wrote an interesting piece on Florida State’s “Famous Jameis” Winston. The quarterback was at football practice at 6:30 a.m., took a plane to Miami and used his 97 MPH fastball to fan all nine Hurricanes he faced.

ESPN’s Trent Dilfer said he could someday be the No. 1 pick in the draft. I assume he meant football. The redshirt freshman has yet to throw a varsity pass but even FSU great Charlie Ward gushed about him.

Here’s johnny

Add to the All-Name team Dartmouth lacrosse player Johnny Carson. Hope you enjoyed your April 15th Columbia pitcher Zack Tax. LSU defensive end Barkevious Mingo, a projected high first-round pick, has to be on the All-Name team, too, along with his aspiring actor brother Hughtavious Mingo.

Foreign invasion

Twenty-nine of the 66 members of the Harvard men’s heavyweight crew squad are foreigners.

radical realignment

The crazy conference realignments aren’t limited to Division 1 schools. Maine Presque Isle’s women’s athletic teams are joining the Great South Athletic Conference. The league consists of schools in Georgia (2), North Carolina, California, Michigan, Massachusetts (Pine Manor), Maine and Washington, D.C.

Young skywalker

Brittney Griner isn’t the only WNBA rookie who can dunk. Toni Young, the seventh overall pick from Oklahoma State, is a 6-2 forward who tied the national high school record with a 6-4 high jump. She placed fifth in the NCAAs last year, which was her first year competing in college. She cleared 6-1.5.

King and his court

North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams’ 18-month-old grandson has a great basketball name. He’s Court Williams.
