    The Humboldt County Rodeo Club was in Fernley on March 14-15 for its next round on the schedule.
    Cade Bell finished second in each performance of the tie-down roping, which was good enough to give him the average title. He had a time of 16.620 seconds in the first go-around and 15.690 in the second for a total of 32.310. He won the average by three seconds.
    Bell and his team roping partner Jayce Blake were fourth in the average in team roping. They won the first go-around of the performance with a time of 8.08. They stopped the clock at 19.110 in the second go-around.

    It turns out Trevor Lawrence and his girlfriend didn’t do anything wrong when they were trying to help coronavirus victims and their families.
    What sounded like a noble effort but might have been an NCAA violation is OK after all.

    Sabrina Ionescu capped off a unprecedented college career by entering an exclusive club.
    Oregon’s star guard was a unanimous choice Monday as The Associated Press women’s basketball player of the year, receiving all 30 votes from the national media panel that selects the Top 25 each week during the season.
  • Lovelock’s school sports on hold
    Thursday, March 26, 2020 1:00 AM
    The spring season came to a sudden halt when the NIAA announced no more games. 
    The Mustangs had time to squeeze in one last weekend of softball, baseball and track. Then it was over — for how long is anyone’s guess.
    More upheaval followed. On Sunday, Mar. 15, the governor closed all K-12 schools in Nevada, to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. 
    Fragile support systems crumbled. In a flash, life handed the kids a new game plan, diametrically opposed to their old one. Welcome to the spring of social distancing. Later, Governor Sisolak extended the shutdown to at least April 16.

    On March 13, the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association sent a memo announcing the suspension of all NIAA sanctioned sports until further notice beginning, Monday, March 16.
  • ‘Rebel with a Cause’ book: Tark’s climb to basketball’s pinnacle was slow and steady; his downfall at UNLV was swift and sad
    Wednesday, March 25, 2020 1:00 AM
    The fall of legendary UNLV basketball Coach Jerry Tarkanian 30 years ago was swift and absolute, with enough political intrigue to rival the court of a Russian czar.
    Yet the underhanded tactics used to oust him opened wounds on the soul and spirit of Las Vegas that have yet to heal.
    That’s my opinion after reading “Rebel with a Cause,” a recently published book about the Tark’s life, written by Danny Tarkanian, Tark’s eldest son and staunchest defender.
  • Gymkhana Club suspends 2020 season due to coronavirus
    Tuesday, March 24, 2020 1:00 AM
    On Friday, March 20, the last cowboy boot dropped. The Northern Nevada Gymkhana Club held out as long as it could before becoming Pershing County’s last coronavirus-related sports casualty. Up until Friday, Ann-Marie Fenner hoped to meet with the horseback riders for the second gymkhana of the 2020 season. It was to meet on Saturday and Sunday.
    Fenner founded the club four years ago. The first gymkhana rolled onto the Lovelock fairgrounds on March 12, 2017. Since then, it expanded into one big family. Many of its members, perhaps most of them, got in the ground floor. Children grow visibly more confident as the years fly by like racehorses.
  • The marquee NCAA Tournament match-ups that could have been
    Saturday, March 21, 2020 1:00 AM
    Seton Hall’s Myles Powell and Marquette’s Markus Howard went head to head during the regular season in a pair of games befitting two of college basketball’s most dynamic players.
    The potential for a third meeting washed away with the cancellation of the Big East tournament, then NCAA Tournament.
    Fear of the coronavirus has taken grip on the nation. The NCAA Tournament, which was slated to start in full on Thursday, has been turned into March Sadness. All those matchups college basketball fans look forward to every year have been replaced by empty arenas and locked doors.
    “Here it is the middle of March and we should be playing games,” Howard said. “It’s pretty crazy.” 
    Powell and Howard met for the first time this season on Jan. 11 in Newark, New Jersey. Howard outscored Powell 27-23, but Seton Hall used its depth to roll to a 69-55 win.

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers enter free agency with expectations of signing Tom Brady and bolstering a defense that will be one of the keys to helping the six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback be successful with his new team.
    There’s been no official announcement on Brady joining the Bucs after 20 seasons with the New England Patriots. However, there’s already an increased demand for tickets.
  • Against the wind
    Thursday, March 19, 2020 1:00 AM
    The Pershing County track team never expected its season to end so abruptly. As of Monday, the NIAA suspended spring sports.
    “I get that it’s a serious situation with the coronavirus, but it’s hard not to be a little upset about my first season being postponed,” said Dalton McNeff. “I was excited about the first couple meets, and to have those pulled away was disappointing.”
    McNeff joined the team as a sophomore this season. On Saturday, he and 18 teammates competed one last time before the suspension took effect. They traveled to the Yerington Relays.
