Assumption 5, Davenport Central 0: Carly King scored three goals and the Knights shut out the Blue Devils on Wednesday.

Sully Kelly got the Knights on the board, bending in a corner kick in the second minute to get the Assumption offense on the board before King tallied a pair in the 19th and 25th minutes to make it 3-0.

Jade Jackson added a goal in the 29th minute, and King completed the scoring with her third goal in the 55th minute.

King's hat trick gave her 12 goals on the season.

The win moves Assumption to 6-0, 3-0 in the MAC. Central falls to 2-2 both overall and in conference.

SILVIS \u2013 With one sponsor exemption, John Deere Classic officials added an international flavor to this year's PGA Tour event and gave golf fans a chance to get an up-close look at one of the most unique swings in the pro game.

JDC Tournament Director Clair Peterson announced that Ho Sung Choi, whose unorthodox \u201cfisherman\u2019s swing\u201d has made him an internet sensation, has accepted a sponsor exemption to play in the July 8-14 event at TPC Deere Run.

This will be the 45-year-old self-taught South Korea native's second event in America.

\u201cI was aware of him before the AT&T Pebble Beach event,\u201d said Peterson, referencing Choi's only other U.S. appearance. \u201cWhen the AT&T Pebble Beach folks invited him, we kind of saw the excitement that delivered. I think they had over a million hits on social media. \u2026 He was such an interesting story.\u201d

As Peterson added, \u201che is not just an oddity, he is an accomplished player.\u201d

Choi won the 2018 Casio World Open on the Japan Golf Tour, one of four international victories for the late-bloomer. He played that AT&T Pebble Beach event with his amateur partner in the same foursome as Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who reportedly requested to play with Choi after seeing his unique swing. He missed the cut in his first trip to the U.S.

\u201cSeeing what happened there validated in our mind the idea that it would be exciting to have him here,\u201d said Peterson.

Choi, who is now ranked No. 226 in the Official World Golf Ranking, is also a perfect fit for the business side of the golf tournament. With Deere & Co. inviting a number of international guests for the tournament, he will complement that segment of the guest list.

Peterson said that Choi will play in both the Monday and Wednesday pro-am events. Peterson said that Choi is playing in Japan the week before and flying into Chicago on the Sunday ahead of the JDC.\u00a0\u00a0

\u201cThe John Deere folks always have guests from all over the world, many times from Asia,\u201d said Peterson. \u201cHaving a Korean player here for their overseas guests to interact with and play in the Monday and Wednesday pro-am just kind of sealed the deal.\u201d

The term “fisherman’s swing” originated with a regular Japan Golf Tour photographer who thought Choi’s swing looked like a fisherman throwing his hook to get a catch, according to an article by Mike McAllister on pgatour.com.

Choi first developed his current swing in 2013 while trying to hit a shot out of the deep rough. When he found that his walk-through helicopter action helped add 13 yards to his tee shots, it soon became his \u201cstandard\u201d swing. His average drives now travel approximately 285 yards.

Peterson has four unrestricted sponsor exemptions to offer for the tournament, usually using those on younger up-and-coming players. In the past, some of those have been offered to Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Jon Rahm among others who kick-started their careers here. He also has four other restricted exemptions that are earmarked for either past PGA Tour winners who are without status or those from the Web.com Tour who otherwise wouldn't be able to get in the field.

The Quad-City Steamwheelers used a much-needed bye last week to address the ills plaguing the local Indoor Football League team during a three-game losing streak.

Not only did a banged-up bunch get healthier with the rest\u00a0\u2014 and used the down time to add a couple of key components\u00a0\u2014 the majority of the Wheelers also remained in town to work toward a better outcome Saturday when Tucson comes to town.

\"That was great to see that kind of commitment,\" Q-C coach Cory Ross said\u00a0after his team's weekly media luncheon Wednesday at the TBK Bank Sports Complex.

\"Guys knows this is a really good team. If we fix what's been hurting us, and start causing some turnovers like I know we can on defense, we can get on a roll.\"

The Wheelers' (2-4) roster changes included adding defensive back Antonio Marshall and receiver Dannon Cavil.

Marshall, who played Big Ten football at Indiana, signed with Q-C in the preseason but was unable to report for camp because of family issues.

Cavill, a 6-foot-4, 215-pounder, started his college career at Oklahoma before finishing at Texas-San Antonio.

\"Both are great moves for us,\" Ross said. \"Marshall's a great athlete. He's going to do some good things for us in the secondary. We had him signed in the preseason, he just couldn't make it for camp. But he called us back here last week and said he was ready if we still wanted him.

\"(Cavil) has great size and runs great routes. He's still figuring out the system and probably won't play this weekend, but it'll be nice to see what he can do the rest of the season. He's a good grab for us. We've been working on him for awhile.\"

To make roster room, the Wheelers released rookie cornerback Everett Nicholas V and first-year running back Isiah Neely.

The Wheelers also activated receiver Darius Hicks off injured reserve and placed Davenport Central grad and running back Zach Minch on short-term IR with a toe injury.

Marshall replaces Nicholas in the secondary. Neely became expendable after an injury forced the signings of Minch, Juwan Lewis and Zavier Steward in the last month to fill the backfield.

Lewis also continues to draw closer to an on-field return after suffering a knee sprain in a win last month at Cedar Rapids.

\"He thinks he can play this weekend, but I'd like to give him another week to make sure he's right for the rest of the season,\" Ross said prior to an evening practice.

\"Who knows? There's a few more days left this week. But I'm not confident he'll be out there right now.\"

The Wheelers also are likely to be playing without a true backup quarterback to starter E.J. Hilliard this weekend.

Season-long backup Dillon Turner requested his release this week to take the starting job at Sioux City from Q-C's former circuit, Champions Indoor Football.

\"No hard feelings,\" Ross said. \"He came to me and said he had an opportunity to start, and I'm not going to stand in the way of that, a kid bettering himself by getting more film. He knows he's welcome back if something happens with E.J. or he wants to come back for any reason.\"

Ross said Turner's exit is nearly perfect timing, with his former starter at CIF Omaha, Anthony Iannotti, recovered from a preseason knee injury and ready to come off the IR soon.

\"He won't be playing this weekend,\" Ross said, \"so we'll probably go into the game without a backup quarterback. But he'll be ready to go next week.\"

In the interim, Ross is leaning against signing a local product as an emergency backup for this weekend.

\"We could do that. But we have a couple of other backup plans, too,\" Ross said without elaborating.

The coach added the Wheelers remain in the market for another defensive lineman but have not heard about any possible return by All-CIF end Kewan Alfred, who was forced home to Texas last month to deal with family issues.

CHAMPAIGN \u2014 With his helmet in his hand following the final Illinois football spring practice on Wednesday morning, it was as if Milo Eifler went back in time.

He started moving his hands as if he were moving in place while bringing his knees near his chest in a running motion, re-creating the play that mentally solidified himself as a football player in his junior year at Bishop O'Dowd High School in Oakland, Calif.

The play was vivid in his mind, like it was flashing in front of him in slow motion. Eifler, a junior linebacker, read Berkeley High's No. 1 receiver. It was a dig route, and Eifler knew his target would break inward to catch a pass in the red zone. He made a play on the ball, intercepted the pass, stumbled a bit and, as he recalled it, didn't get any blockers in front of him. So he \"turned on the jets\" and took the interception 95 yards to the end zone with still some energy left in the tank.

In his mind, he could do this football thing. It was just his seventh career football game after former Illinois defensive coordinator Hardy Nickerson, then the O'Dowd head coach, convinced Eifler to play football, meaning his old sport of basketball would take a backseat.

That was before Eifler got home later in the season to find \"like 400\" letters from colleges in the mail; before he became the No. 21 prospect in California in the 2015 class, and the No. 11 outside linebacker prospect in the nation, according to 247Sports; and before he committed to play at the University of Washington, then transferred last season to Illinois, costing him a year of eligibility.

He's paid his NCAA-mandated dues and is ready to make a splash and prove himself as a strongside linebacker for the Illini. In his year away from game action \u2014 he's only played three seasons of football in his entire life after taking a redshirt at Washington \u2014 Eifler learned mental toughness. He was on the scout team last year and knew darn well he couldn't play in a game for Illinois.

\u201cIt was definitely a long season, having to sit out and watch the team do their thing \u2014 kind of like being a passenger,\" Eifler said.

In Eifler, who is 6-foot-2, 220 pounds, the Illini have an athletic linebacker who was once a four-star recruit out of high school. In today's spread offenses, the importance of a linebacker who can play in space and cover tight ends is paramount. It's the reason the team also moved Delano Ware from defensive back to linebacker this offseason.

\"I bring size, speed, athleticism and kind of like that motor, that new-age linebacker that people are talking about,\" Eifler said. \"I can play in the box, I can play outside \u2014 wherever coach wants me to play at, I'll play that position. I'll do whatever I can to win.\"

Illinois head coach Lovie Smith said the athleticism that Eifler brings is a \"must\" this day in age. He fits the profile that the coaching staff is looking for in their linebackers: Someone who can be an impact player in run defense but also quick and athletic enough to guard a receiver, tight end or running back down the field.

\"He\u2019s had a good spring,\" Smith said. \"He\u2019s athletic, got good size, agility. It\u2019s been awhile since he\u2019s played but we think he\u2019ll be a physical player; he can play out in space. He\u2019s got enough bulk and he\u2019s tough enough to play inside. We think he\u2019s going to get into the mix and he\u2019s going to be one of the guys this year we have high hopes for.\"

Ware and Eifler came up together in California. They played at separate schools, but knew each other. Ware saw Eifler turn from a basketball player into a linebacker with offers from major programs across the country including Oregon, Michigan, Texas A&M, California, Louisville and more.

When other linebackers talk about Eifler, they echo each other.

\u201cI love the energy he brings. He brings a lot of energy and speed and athleticism to the linebacker group,\" Ware said.

\u201cHe bring a series of things: His versatility, he can cover, his structure, he\u2019s built for the box and built outside the box. Everything sideline to sideline, he\u2019s good overall,\" linebacker Dele Harding said.

After practice on Wednesday, Harding did his post-practice stretch and went to the JUGS machine for extra work catching the football. More times than not, he said, linebackers don't get passes thrown their way in practice.

He has to stay sharp. It's hard telling when a pass will come his way that ends in a 95-yard sprint to the finish.

She was introduced to golf by her grandfather at age 4. She was playing competitive tournaments before her eighth birthday. She won player of the year honors on the Iowa PGA Junior Tour as an 11-year-old in the girls 16-18 division.

Shannyn Vogler is in the beginning stages of her teenage years, but the freshman already has established herself as one of the elite golfers in the state.

Vogler posted a 2-over par 76 Wednesday at Emeis Golf Course in the Davenport West Invitational to capture medalist honors by six strokes and propel Bettendorf to a 20-shot victory in what was a prelude to next month's Mississippi Athletic Conference tournament.

This was on the heels of a 74 Vogler shot Monday at Willow Creek Golf Course in West Des Moines.

\"She looks for perfection in an imperfect game,\" Bettendorf coach Robbie Furne said. \"There isn't a lot of coaching I have to do with her because she is very self-motivated and mature beyond her years.\"

Born in Minnesota, Vogler has lived in the Quad-Cities area her entire life. The family resided in Moline, moved to Sherrard three years ago and has plans of relocating back to Moline soon.

Vogler has attended Rivermont Collegiate, a college preparatory school in Bettendorf, since fourth grade.

When she and her grandfather contacted Furne about participating in high school golf last summer, the Bulldogs had to petition the state for a cooperative between Bettendorf and Rivermont.

This has been Vogler's first exposure to team golf.

\"It is definitely different than regular summer golf,\" she said. \"You're trying to help the team out. In the summer, the focus is on yourself.\"

Vogler has traveled across the country playing tournaments the past few summers. She has been to 35 states, many for events through the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) and Mid-American Junior Golf Tour.

Her grandparents purchased a Chevrolet Equinox that has accumulated more than 27,000 miles in the past 11 months. Most of those have come from driving Vogler to tournaments.

There have been sacrifices.

Instead of hanging out with friends at pool parties during the summer, Vogler is immersed into practicing and playing competitive tournaments.

\"I love the game,\" Vogler said. \"It is difficult devoting this much time to it, but I understand if I really want to get good, I have to put in this much time and effort. I'm OK with it.\"

The 14-year-old has lofty ambitions.

She'll attempt to qualify for the United States Women's Amateur this summer. Arizona State is her desired college, and turning professional is the ultimate dream.

Depending on how her career pans out, Furne realizes there is a possibility he might not have Vogler in his program for four years.

\"The national scene is going to be there for her,\" he said. \"It is a different situation than some of our other sports. I would never want her to not feel she couldn't do a (national) tournament if she wants to do that.

\"She's got bigger check marks to get besides high school golf.\"

Vogler is averaging 37.3 strokes for nine holes in three events this year. When Vogler submitted her goals at the start of the season, she wanted to shoot a 65 in competition.

She recorded a 65 in a practice round at Hunter's Ridge in Marion. Her low round in a competitive tournament is 68.

The 5-foot-6 Vogler showcased her talent on the back nine Wednesday. She was precise off the tee (on average carrying the ball about 215 to 220 yards), nestled wedges close to the pin and converted a couple 10-footers for either birdie or par to shoot 34.

\"I feel I have more than 14 clubs in my bag,\" she said. \"I can do so much with each of my clubs. I can hit draws, fades, go under trees, go over trees. I think that IQ just comes through practice, watching and listening to a lot of (professional) golfers.\"

Her grandfather, Terry, serves as her coach. However, he doesn't follow her around the course. Her grandmother followed Wednesday and kept Terry and Vogler's parents updated through text messages.

\"Since he's my coach, it is a little different than having your grandma watch,\" Vogler said. \"He gets a little frustrated because he knows when I do mess something up how much better I could have done on that.\"

Vogler has brought excitement to Bettendorf's program. She also has pushed her competitors.

Davenport Assumption's Olivia Leinart, in the same grouping, was the runner-up medalist with an 82.

\"We were both pushing each other,\" Leinart said. \"It motivated me to be more aggressive and shoot a better score.

\"It was fun watching her play. Just to think she's only a freshman, it goes to show how much work she's already put into her game and how good she'll be in the future.\"

There was some nervousness early in the season between Vogler and her teammates, but Furne said that has subsided as the relationship has grown between both sides.

With Vogler, Bettendorf is the definitive MAC favorite and among the top teams in Class 4A. It finished second at a 16-team tournament Monday consisting of the top-tier Des Moines programs.

\"It gives the girls a little more confidence knowing Shannyn is most likely going to put up a really good score,\" Furne said. \"We have goals this year we've never had in our program.

\"We want to go after the Des Moines schools. We're not there yet, but come the end of May, I like our chances.\"

Vogler is the reason for that.

Defending regular-season champion Maryland is the only women's basketball team to finish in the top four in the 2018-19 Big Ten race that will visit Iowa next season.

The Hawkeyes, who beat the Terrapins in both a lone regular-season meeting and the title game of the Big Ten tourney during the recently-completed season will face face Maryland at home and on the road during the 2019-20 season.

The Big Ten unveiled opponents, home, road and home and road, for next season on Wednesday, giving teams a first look at who they will face next season as part of an 18-game conference schedule.

Iowa, which must replace three starters from a 29-7 team which reached the Elite Eight of the NCAA tourney, will play Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska and Penn State at home and on the road.

The Hawkeyes will also host Illinois, Indiana, Michigan State and Ohio State in the only meetings of the regular season between those teams.

Coach Lisa Bluder's 20th Iowa team will play road games only against Michigan, Northwestern, Purdue and Rutgers.

Dates and times for games will be announced at a later date.

CEDAR RAPIDS \u2014 If Quad-Cities River Bandits outfielder Jonathan Lacroix could find a postcard, he\u2019d scribble something like this across the back.

\"Having a good start to the season. Wish you were here.\"

Two weeks into the start of a season-opening road trip that will last at least another six games because of ongoing Mississippi River flooding in the vicinity of Davenport\u2019s Modern Woodmen Park, Lacroix and the River Bandits are making the most of a situation they have no control over.

\"We\u2019d all like to be playing in front of our fans at home\u00a0\u2014 it\u2019s a great ballpark\u00a0\u2014 but right now all we can do is come out and play wherever we are at,\" Lacroix said. \"We have to keep working and make the most of every day.\"

The Montreal native, a 12th-round pick of the Astros in the 2017 draft out of Seminole State, is doing just that as he builds off of a strong finish he had while playing for Quad-Cities last season.

\"Just keep grinding, keep the momentum going,\" Lacroix said. \"It\u2019s been a good start to the season, just how I hoped it would go.\"

After missing the 2017 season following foot surgery, Lacroix endured a slow start during 76 games with the River Bandits a year ago.

He did manage to raise his batting average 60 points from .196 to .256 over the final two months of the season and continued to work on his game in the Astros\u2019 instructional league camp.

Lacroix left there with a training game plan for the offseason that had him ready to go when he arrived at spring training.

After training in his Canadian hometown during the offseason, it took him a couple of days to adjust to fly balls in the high, blue spring training skies above West Palm Beach.

\"It always does, but after that I was good to go. It was a good camp and I felt ready when the season started,\" Lacroix said, adding he expected to return to the Midwest League to open the current season.

\"I still have a lot of room to improve and a lot of work to do, and that\u2019s where I\u2019m at, trying to get that done.\"

Lacroix is off to a .333 start this season for the River Bandits, collecting hits in nine of his 11 games including a three-hit effort Monday against Cedar Rapids.

\"I\u2019m feeling good at the plate, seeing the ball well and playing with some confidence,\" Lacroix said.

He continues to work with River Bandits hitting coach Rafael Pena to gain consistency in his performance.

Development in swing decision and pitch recognition continue to be high on his list of priorities.

Being part of a team that ranks third in the league with a .253 team batting average doesn\u2019t hurt.

\"We have a lot of good hitters on this team. It took us a few days to get things going, but we\u2019re going to be a team that can put some runs on the board,\" Lacroix said. \"It\u2019s a good situation to learn in, and that should help us all.\"

A Q-C twist: Lansing is putting its own spin on a promotion which originated with the River Bandits organization and continues to be a popular Quad-Cities attraction\u00a0\u2014 showering a baseball field with things thrown out of a helicopter.

The Lugnuts will host a helicopter Easter egg drop prior to its Saturday home game against Dayton.

A total of 5,000 plastic eggs filled with candy will be dropped on the field from a passing helicopter before young fans are allowed on the field to claim them.

Quad-Cities has two helicopter drops on its promotional schedule for 2019, a candy drop and a toy car drop.

Battle Cats 2.0: A college wood-bat league will pay tribute to the Midwest League\u2019s former Michigan Battle Cats franchise later this summer.

The Battle Creek Bombers will take the field as the Battle Cats for a July 19 game, a tribute to a franchise which called Battle Creek home from 1995-2006 before moving to Midland, Michigan, where it has since been known as the Great Lakes Loons.

Battle Cats jerseys and caps are planned, with jerseys to be auctioned off following the Northwoods League game.

Playing in Peoria: A pair of Peoria Chiefs swept the first weekly honors presented by the Midwest League this season.

Nolan Gorman, the Cardinals\u2019 first-round pick in the 2018 draft, was named the league\u2019s hitter of the week after batting .395 with four doubles, four homers and 13 RBI in the first 11 days of the season.

Peoria\u2019s Tommy Parsons was named the Midwest League pitcher of the week. He won a pair of decisions, striking out nine batters and walking two while scattering five hits over 13.1 shutout innings to open the season.

Alumni report

Former Quad-Cities pitcher Joe Musgrove leads all of Major League Baseball with an earned run average of 0.81 after four outings, including three starts, for Pittsburgh.

The Pirates\u2019 6-foot-6 right-hander is 1-1 on the season with 21 strikeouts and 4 walks through his first 22 innings of work this season.

Musgrove dominated as part of the River Bandits opening-day roster in 2015. He posted a 4-1 record with Quad-Cities with an 0.70 ERA in five games before the Astros promoted him to high-A Lancaster in the California League. Musgrove struck out 23 batters and walked one in 25.2 innings for the Bandits.

With one sponsor exemption, John Deere Classic officials added an international flavor to this year's PGA Tour event and gave golf fans a chance to get an up-close look at a unique swing that became a social media sensation.

JDC tournament director Clair Peterson announced that Ho Sung Choi, whose unorthodox \u201cfisherman\u2019s swing\u201d has made him an internet sensation, has accepted a sponsor exemption to play in the July 8-14 event at TPC Deere Run.

This will be the 45-year-old, self-taught South Korea native's second event in America.

\u201cI was aware of him before the AT&T Pebble Beach event,\u201d said Peterson, referencing Choi's only other U.S. appearance. \u201cWhen the AT&T Pebble Beach folks invited him, we kind of saw the excitement that delivered. I think they had over a million hits on social media. \u2026 He was such an interesting story.\u201d

As Peterson added, \u201che is not just an oddity, he is an accomplished player.\u201d

Choi won the 2018 Casio World Open on the Japan Golf Tour, one of four international victories for the late-bloomer. He played that AT&T Pebble Beach event with his amateur partner in the same foursome as Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who reportedly requested to play with Choi after seeing his unique swing. He missed the cut in his first trip to the U.S.

\u201cSeeing what happened there validated in our mind the idea that it would be exciting to have him here,\u201d Peterson said.

Choi, ranked No. 226 in the Official World Golf Ranking, is also a perfect fit for the business side of the golf tournament. With Deere & Co. inviting a number of international guests for the tournament, he will complement that segment of the guest list.

Peterson said Choi will play in both the Monday and Wednesday pro-am events. Peterson added that Choi is playing in Japan the week before and flying into Chicago on the Sunday ahead of the JDC.\u00a0\u00a0

\u201cThe John Deere folks always have guests from all over the world, many times from Asia,\u201d Peterson said. \u201cHaving a Korean player here for their overseas guests to interact with and play in the Monday and Wednesday pro-am just kind of sealed the deal.\u201d

The term “fisherman’s swing” originated with a regular Japan Golf Tour photographer who thought Choi’s swing looked like a fisherman throwing his hook to get a catch, according to an article by Mike McAllister on pgatour.com.

Choi developed his current swing in 2013 while trying to hit a shot out of the deep rough. When he found that his walk-through helicopter action helped add 13 yards to his tee shots, it soon became his \u201cstandard\u201d swing. His average drives travel approximately 285 yards.

Peterson has four unrestricted sponsor exemptions to offer for the tournament, which usually go to younger up-and-coming players.

In the past, some of those have been offered to Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Jon Rahm among others who kick-started their careers here. He also has four other restricted exemptions that are earmarked for either past PGA Tour winners who are without status or those from the Web.com Tour who otherwise wouldn't be able to get in the field.

Because of the threat of severe weather in Cedar Rapids, Wednesday's Quad-Cities River Bandits game against the Kernels was postponed.

Because the River Bandits are not scheduled to host Cedar Rapids during the remainder of the first half of the Midwest League season, the game will be made up as part of a doubleheader at the Kernels' Veterans Memorial Park on Monday, May 13.

That twin bill has been set for a 5:30 p.m. start.

Quad-Cities fans who pre-purchased tickets before this week's series was moved to Cedar Rapids can exchange them for tickets to remaining 2019 River Bandits home games while fans who pre-purchased tickets in the past week through Cedar Rapids may exchange them for tickets to any remaining Kernels home game.

The River Bandits continue their season-opening road trip tonight, opening a three-game series against Kane County at Peoria's Dozer Park with a 6:30 p.m. game.

After Demetrius Sims struck out, Encarnacion belted his fourth homer of the season to give Clinton a 6-3 lead that Hollins extended with a leadoff homer in the eighth in the deciding game of the three-game series.

When Tiger Woods won the Masters last weekend, it was a moment many thought would never happen.

Woods has been one of the most important figures in modern sports because of the way he rocketed into golf and exemplified excellence. He is second all-time on the list of wins (81) and majors (15), and reintroduced a generation to a tradition like no other.

It was hard to think a time could come when he would be irrelevant.

Until the moment he was.

You don't need to be a fan of an athlete to be disappointed by him. And Tiger didn't simply disappoint - he disappeared. Woods' infidelity on an epic scale was paired with a precipitous decline due to a cascade of injuries. For a time, Woods' career paralleled those of Serena and Venus Williams' in tennis, each breaking new ground in their respective sports through the combination of towering accomplishment and simply showing up. Then Tiger went away, and with him, much of the influence he brought.

In the years since the Williams sisters started playing, more and more young women of color picked up a racket. If you look across the WTA landscape you can see the full-grown results of a real push to open tennis up to young players of different racial and socioeconomic backgrounds. American tennis now has players like Sloane Stephens, Madison Keys and Taylor Townsend in the top 100 in the world.

When we look at golf, the sport hasn't done as well with introducing the sport to new players - although you can't exactly pin it all on Woods. The Masters was entrenched in an anti-inclusivity stance until 2012 when two women, Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore, were named members. Many private clubs remain expensive and exclusive, and public courses can be scarce in different regions. Eight months ago, then PGA of America CEO Pete Bevacqua said diversity was the top issue facing the sport.

\"The biggest challenge is, I think, the challenge that everyone in golf shares, which is how do you grow this game?\" said Bevacqua. \"How do you make this game more accessible and more diverse?

Bevacqua said this two decades after the emergence of one of the greatest athletes in his game, the son of a black man and a Thai woman.

To address the inequity, the PGA, LPGA and other groups started the First Tee program to create a path for kids who didn't historically have access to the sport, but the results haven't been as robust as hoped.

How much of that could Tiger Woods personally change?

It's hard to know. In a video that circulated widely after Woods' win Sunday, a 14-year-old Tiger is asked what his ultimate ambition is in the sport, the one tournament he wants to win. \"The Masters,\" he says. Why? \"The way blacks have been treated there. You know, they shouldn't be there. If I win that tournament, it'll be really big for us.\"

Woods became an icon, but before he could leverage his platform as Venus did, for example by advocating for equal pay at Wimbledon in a 2006 opinion piece in the Times of London, he was absorbed by the chaos he'd created in his private life.

With his reputation in tatters, his ability to inspire change became just another in a cascade of what ifs. If he could have made more of a difference, he robbed himself of the best years to do it. The biggest casualty of his 11-year title drought might not have been the majors and titles, but also the moral authority to advocate for inclusion in golf.

There was a time when I didn't care if Tiger Woods ever won another round of golf.

But the 11 years since Woods won his last major title haven't just weathered the former champion, we as a culture have examined what we are really looking for in our heroes. Woods didn't cheat at his sport or physically harm anyone. After years watching violent players recycled by leagues, time has changed my perception of what is unforgivable.

Last Saturday, Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman sealed a win with nary a mention of a domestic violence incident in which he allegedly fired a gun. Kansas City running back Kareem Hunt will play on after an eight-game suspension for kicking a woman in a violent incident caught on video. The list goes on.

By contrast, Woods' sex scandal was humiliating, but not violent or criminal.

Woods' second act has been as challenging as his first seemed easy. He was not winning. He required four back surgeries, and there were moments he fell to the fairway in pain after a shot.

So last weekend, when Woods finally earned another green jacket, it was hard not to be moved. When he walked to hug his children Sam and Charlie, who had not known their father as the active champion so many remember him for, the joy was evident on all of their faces.

Turns out, it's not too late for Tiger. And, hopefully, it's not too late for golf. Woods' second act can mean a lot of things, and making the sport a more inclusive place could be one of them.

CEDAR RAPIDS \u2014\u00a0Blayne Enlow beat the Quad-Cities River Bandits at their own game Tuesday.

The Cedar Rapids right-hander limited Quad-Cities to a pair of singles over six innings to send the hard-hitting Kernels on their way to an 11-2 Midwest League victory over the host River Bandits at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

\u201cHe really didn\u2019t give us much to work with, pitched a real good game,\u2019\u2019 Quad-Cities manager Ray Hernandez said following his team\u2019s most lopsided loss of a 7-5 start to the season. \u201cHe looked like a lot of our pitchers have looked so far this season.\u2019\u2019

And on the flip side, Cedar Rapids hit the usually-steady River Bandits pitching staff hard, grabbing extra bases on nine of their 15 hits.

The Kernels clubbed four doubles, three triples and two home runs and scored runs in six of the final seven innings as they pulled away from a 5-2 lead after six innings.

\u201cWe were in it, 5-2, needing to put together an inning, but that didn\u2019t happen,\u2019\u2019 Hernandez said.

Enlow, a 6-foot-4 20-year-old who was a third-round draft pick of the Twins in 2017, struck out six batters and faced the minimum before Enmanuel Valdez reached base on a one-out walk in the fourth.

Valdez, who reached base in each of his four plate appearances including on an eighth-inning double, came around to score when Cesar Salazar drove a single up the middle for Quad-Cities\u2019 first hit of the game.

His two-out RBI base knock came after Valdez had advanced on a balk before putting the River Bandits on the board.

Quad-Cities added a run in the fifth when Ross Adolph reached on an error and came around to score when Marty Costes reached on Cedar Rapids\u2019 second error of the night.

The River Bandits trailed 5-2 at that point, but the long ball helped Cedar Rapids even the ongoing series at one win apiece.

A three-home run home run to right in the third inning by Trey Cabbage and a solo shot to left by Jacob Pearson in the seventh allowed the Kernels to take an early lead and then maintain it.

\u201cWe couldn\u2019t hold them down,\u2019\u2019 Hernandez said. \u201cAustin (Hansen, the River Bandits starter) struggled to find his spots early and that made it tough.\u2019\u2019

Cabbage\u2019s league-leading fourth home run of the season came during the first of three straight innings when the Kernels made the River Bandits pay for leadoff walks.

Cedar Rapids extended and then maintained its leads on sacrifice flies by Gabe Snyder in the fourth inning and Michael Davis in the fifth before breaking the game open with a four-run eighth that included a two-run triple by Cabbage, who finished a double shy of the cycle.

It was a momentum swing.

Davenport North had created chances in the second half Tuesday night and held strong defensively against Bettendorf.

One unlucky bounce later, the Bulldogs regained control.

Mia Griffin buried a mishandled ball by Wildcats keeper Aerianna Trowers for her second goal of the night to catapult Bettendorf to a 3-0 Mississippi Athletic Conference victory over North at TouVelle Stadium.

\u201cThere are games where you don\u2019t always have the momentum on your side,\u201d said Griffin, who now leads the Bulldogs with four goals. \u201cEvery time I had the ball over the top or a simple pass, I just tried to push myself a little bit more.\u201d

After giving up three goals to Assumption, the Class 3A seventh-ranked Bulldogs (4-2, 3-1 MAC) allowed one regulation goal to Pleasant Valley and followed that up by recording their first shutout of the season.

\u201cLate in the game, I was like \u2018No matter what we do, let\u2019s get the shutout,\u2019\u201d Bettendorf head coach Todd Hornaday said. \u201cWe shifted our formation around a little bit and it worked for us very well for us Friday and I saw some very good stuff out of it today.\u201d

Playing without senior Elizabeth Park due to a one-game suspension for getting two yellow cards against the Spartans, it forced some underclassmen to play more minutes.

Griffin stated it took about five minutes to get everyone on the same page. In the 19th minute, the junior forward found the back of the net.

Off a feed from Avery Horner, Griffin raced down the left side of the pitch past the North defense and fired her shot in the bottom right corner to put the Bulldogs up 1-0.

\u201cA couple openings came up on the outside defender and their center,\u201d Griffin said. \u201cI was lucky enough to get a flick on ball and pushed through.\u201d

Hornaday called them \u201cgrit and determination\u201d goals.

\u201cSometimes, that\u2019s what you got to do,\u201d he added. \u201cBe scrappy and put yourself in position where you can capitalize on a second ball and find yourself in a position to get a wide open look.\u201d

Sophomore Sophia Utsinger added the final goal in the 63rd minute, her third of the season.

Hornaday gets the same feeling every year after the PV game, that the next one has the makings of a trap game.

He was pleased they avoided it by outshooting the Wildcats 21-4 before getting ready to face second-ranked Ankeny Centennial on Thursday.

\u201cMentally, more so than physically, got to refocus,\u201d Hornaday said. \u201cWe knew North was going to park the bus and try to limit our opportunities. I was happy with how we moved the ball.\u201d

North (0-6, 0-3) remains without a goal since scoring in the 12th minute in its season-opening loss to Assumption.

Wildcats head coach Tyler Holle still sees improvement.

\u201cWe\u2019re still trying to find our identity offensively,\u201d he said. \u201cWhen we went from our 4-5-1 look to a more 3-5-2 look, we had some more chances.\u201d

Trowers stopped 13 shots in net.

CLINTON, Iowa \u2014 Darien Porter anchored three relays to victories, and the Bettendorf boys track and field team won four other events in cruising to the title at the Gateway Classic on Tuesday night.

The Bulldogs won the Class A Division with 180 points, 47 clear of runner-up Pleasant Valley.

Bettendorf ran season-best times in the sprint medley relay (1 minute, 32.17 seconds), 800 relay (1:29.68) and 400 relay (42.74). All three of those times are among the best posted this year in the state.

Leo Desequeira, who also captured the 100, and Austin Kalar joined Porter on those three relays. Carter Bell was on two of those and Tyler Pate was on the other.

Mekou Smith-Reed (200), Alex Blizzard (shot put) and Ethan Clarke (400 hurdles) also had victories for the Bulldogs.

Pleasant Valley's 3,200 relay of Parker Huhn, Ian Kaffenberger, Max Murphy and Michael Sampson ran a season-best time of 8:04.14. That mark hit the blue standard to qualify them for the Drake Relays.

Northeast edged Camanche for the team title in Class B. The Rebels won three field events with Atzin Dondiego (shot put), Braeden Hoyer (high jump) and Dawson Stoll (long jump).\u00a0

Morrison's Keegan Anderson took first in the 200 and 400.

Pleasant Valley 4, Burlington 0: Jayne Abraham scored two goals as the Spartans broke the game open by scoring twice in the span of a minute in the first half.

PV, which led 3-0 at halftime, got its first goal from Allie Simpson in the 21st minute and Abraham added another goal within seconds after that, then scored again before halftime.

Adelaide Wolfe scored the final goal for the Spartans (4-2, 2-1 MAC), who outshot Burlington 23-1. Burlington fell to 0-4 in league play.

North Scott 1, Clinton 0: The Lancers improved their overall record to 6-2 (3-1 MAC) with a hard-fought victory.

Muscatine 8, West 0: The Muskies continued their hot start by beating the Falcons. They led 1-0 at halftime, the only goal coming on a penalty kick by Natalie Lingle, but poured it on in the second half.

\"Even though the score showed 8-0, it took a while to get there,\" Muscatine head coach Nate Meineke said. \"We did some things (in the second half) that we should have been doing in the first half.\"

Quincy 4, Rock Island 1: After 50 scoreless minutes, Quincy senior Samantha Boyer sent a perfectly placed free kick from about 40 yards out just over the outstretched arms of the Rock Island keeper. Quincy went on to win 4-1.

Quincy (4-5-2, 2-0-1 Western Big Six) is 4-0-1 in its last five games as Rock Island fell to 5-7 overall and 1-2 in the conference. Quincy and Moline still share the conference lead after the Maroons won 9-0 in Galesburg.

Moline 9, Galesburg 0: The Maroons (3-3-2, 2-0-1 Big Six) remain tied for the conference lead after shutting out Galesburg (0-3 Big Six).

The Moline defense was led by keeper Morgan Hemmen, playing in her first game of the season after recovering from a concussion. Karima Rangel scored three goals for Moline, with two each from Caroline Hazen, Bella Smith and Val Cervantes.

For the first time since arriving at the University of Iowa, Fran McCaffery must replace one of his full-time assistant coaches.

The Des Moines Register reported Tuesday night that long-time assistant coach Andrew Francis is leaving the Iowa program to take a job elsewhere.

It was not yet known where Francis was headed because the paperwork at his new school was yet to be completed, according to the Register. Francis declined comment.

Francis came to Iowa in 2019 after serving as an assistant under McCaffery for three seasons at Siena College. He, Kirk Speraw and Sherm Dillard had remained intact as McCaffery\u2019s three full-time assistants for nine years.

Francis, a native of Brooklyn, New York, served as the head women\u2019s coach at Mt. St. Vincent College and as a volunteer assist with the Westchester Wildfire of the United State Basketball League before joining McCaffery\u2019s staff at Siena.

Moser staying: Loyola-Chicago coach Porter Moser said he plans to stay at the school after he reportedly talked to St. John's about its job.

Moser said he is \"all in\" with Loyola after the Ramblers went 20-14 this season and won a share of the Missouri Valley Conference title. Loyola lost to Creighton in the first round of the NIT in the school's second straight postseason appearance.

A Chicago-area product, Moser is 141-125 in eight seasons at Loyola. He guided the Ramblers to the Final Four in 2018 for the first time since the school won the 1963 national championship.
