The Wisconsin graduate is the only man or woman to captain both a gold-medal winning Olympic hockey team and an NCAA championship team.

“Hockey literally changed my life,” Duggan wrote. “I put on a pair of skates as a toddler and grew up through the sport. It’s been one of the greatest privileges of my life to play for Team USA. While being an athlete will always be part of my identity, I am ready for the next chapter.”

Duggan was a star on the ice. She debuted with the national team in 2007at 19, when she was a freshman at

United States women’s hockey captain Meghan Duggan retiring

Meghan Duggan, captain of the U.S. women’s hockey team that won Olympic gold in 2018, is retiring.

Duggan, who had a 14-year stint with the national team, announced her retirement in an essay published Tuesday by ESPN.

WICHITA, Kan. — Wichita State University has ordered an independent investigation of alleged abuse by men’s basketball coach Gregg Marshall, the school confirmed Friday.

But in the meantime it will be business as usual for the team, as Marshall and the team will continue to prepare for the upcoming season as normal, the school said in a written statement.

Wichita State ordered the investigation into Marshall’s conduct by an outside law firm earlier this year and acknowledged it only after published reports by Stadium and The Athletic, two major sports news outlets.

One of those reports was the result of a six-month investigation by college basketball insider Jeff Goodman outlining a pattern of physical and verbal abuse by Marshall that has driven away some players.

Peru State’s new coach got his first win in remarkable fashion | Local sports



Peru State

Peru State running back Ki’Jana Owens had a career-high 173 rushing yards against Baker last week, including 142 in the second half.




Peru State looked like a different team during the second half of last Saturday’s game, turning a 10-3 halftime deficit into a 30-17 win over previously unbeaten Central Methodist.

Coach Casey Creehan offered a simple explanation for the turnaround.

“Our execution wasn’t where it needed to be” in the first 1½ games, said Creehan, whose team lost its opener 41-2 before last weekend’s comeback. “In the second half, we just executed better.”

It’s understandable that it took the Bobcats time to get on the same page.

Creehan, who coached Lyon College in Arkansas last season, took over at Peru at the beginning of March — just ahead of COVID-19 shutting down campuses for the rest of the spring.

Peru’s first two scheduled games were postponed

Yo Colorado highlights state’s golden age with retro colors in clothing line

It’s hard not to think about the good ole days right now. And that’s part of why this week’s “In Good Company” is so fitting.

Yo Colorado has captured the essence of Colorado from its most colorful days.

Their apparel turns 70s and 80s retro cool into a fashion statement.

Their storefront in Golden is like a time warp, filled with clothing and colors from Colorado’s golden age.

“I came here when I was a kid and camped with my family,” said Yo Colorado co-founder Brad Miller. “And, I have these memories of campers with the brown, orange, yellow stripes on them.”

Miller and fellow co-founder Pe Maslowsky started Yo Colorado seven years ago as an ode to the past with a modern day appeal.

“We had this idea for a vintage looking ski beanie that would somehow represent Colorado,” said Miller. “And, we didn’t see anything like that out

New book explores beauty of Hoosier State’s obsession with basketball

Three years ago, the Indiana Pacers hit on an idea for a marketing slogan and instead found they’d conjured a phrase that defines an entire state: “We Grow Basketball Here.”

It is not by accident that two of the men whose names grace major college basketball player of the year awards, John Wooden and Oscar Robertson, were born and raised here. It is not by accident that Rick Mount, George McGinnis, Glenn “Big Dog” Robinson and Steve Alford were produced by Indiana high schools, or that Bob Knight, Gene Keady, Rick Majerus and Brad Stevens became coaching stars on this state’s college stages.

Take a walk through any Indiana subdivision and count the basketball hoops in the driveways. Take a stroll near the playgrounds in Indianapolis and see how often the courts are occupied with pickup games.

This is the spirit, the intrinsic connection between community and sport, that photographers
