VAN WERT — Expectations are high for the Van Wert boys and girls track teams this spring - despite losing one of the most decorated runners in school history.

Gone from last year’s squad is 2013 800-meter run Division II State champion and 2014 1,600-meter runner-up Jared Fleming, who has taken his talents to Kent State University.

Also gone is Kase Schalois, a multiple-time state qualifier who is now running at Ohio Northern.

Despite the losses, Coach Mark Collins has a host of very talented runners returning this spring.

SAN ANTONIO — Long after the fog cleared at TPC San Antonio, Phil Mickelson remained shrouded in an increasingly alarming funk with the Masters two weeks away.

Mickelson shot a 5-over 77 on Thursday in the Texas Open to fall nine strokes back during the suspended first round. The 77 was Lefty's highest score since a 78 in August in the PGA Championship.

"I had been playing real well at home, so to come out and play like this is disappointing," Mickelson said. "Just didn't feel quite sharp."

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Jordan Sibert scored 18 points, Kendall Pollard added a season-high 12 and Dayton rolled past Stanford 82-72 on Thursday to make the NCAA tournament’s Elite Eight for the first time since 1984.

No. 11 Dayton (26-10) continued its underdog run and this one wasn’t particularly close. The 6-4 Sibert was spectacular, slashing to the basket and draining 3-pointers, to help the Flyers lead for almost the entire night.

Dayton showed its depth early, using 12 players in the first half to slowly wear Stanford down.

No. 10 Stanford (23-13) had the superior post play but it wasn’t enough. Chasson Randle led the Cardinal with 21 points but shot 5-of-21 from the field. Dwight Powell added 17 and Stefan Nastic — who fouled out with more than five minutes left — had 15.

Buckeyes must fill big holes up front on offense

COLUMBUS — The point, Ohio State assistant coach Ed Warinner told his players, is to not sweat all the outside stuff.

“All you have to do is your job. If you think about things outside of your job, then you get overwhelmed a little bit,” Warinner told the candidates to fill the gaping holes on the offensive line. “You don’t have to cover for each other, just do your job. And that’s all we’re having them focus on. I think they’ll be fine.”

Warinner, the Buckeyes’ co-offensive coordinator and line coach, is charged with a mighty task — replacing four big players with big personalities up front who were the backbone of the team.

Their departure leaves Warinner and Taylor Decker to pass on the unit’s legacy of clearing running lanes, sealing off the passer and sticking together like a long-haired band of brothers in some action flick.

“They were definitely great players,” Decker said of the graduated Jack Mewhort, Andrew Norwell, Corey Linsley and Marcus Hall. “We just need somebody to lead these (new) guys. Because it’s a talented group of guys, who just have to get experience.”
