Ex-Trojan Dodge invited

to play in U.S. Publinx

Genna Dodge, a Post Falls High graduate who will be a sophomore on Gonzaga’s women’s golf team next season, has been selected to compete in the 2010 U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship beginning Monday at The Warren Golf Course on the University of Notre Dame campus in South Bend, Ind.

She will join fellow GU sophomore Victoria Fallgren, who qualified through sectional qualifying at Los Serranos Golf & Country Club in Chino Hills, Calif.

Dodge shot a 74 and was one of two alternates in the Tacoma, Wash., sectional qualifier played at Meadow Park Golf Course earlier this month. Now she is in the field of 156 which will play two days of stroke play today and Tuesday with the low 64 scores advancing to match play. A 36-hole championship is slated for Saturday.

The Warren Golf Course will be a par-71 layout at either 6,096 or 6,133 yards depending on the layout of the par-4 sixth hole which will play either 363 or 400 yards for the championship.

Dodge and Fallgren played in a tournament in Los Angeles last week, then flew directly to South Bend.

Lums heading back

to Omaha tourney

After going 0-5 at the Palouse Summer Series, the Coeur d’Alene Lumbermen American Legion baseball team leaves Tuesday for Omaha, Neb., and the 48-team Decker Sports College World Series Tournament.

The Lumbermen will play the Sioux Falls (S.D.) Cyclones on Wednesday, the Woodward (Okla.) Travelers on Thursday, the Deeb Mustangs (Omaha) and the Shockers (San Mateo, Calif.) on Friday, and Dakota Ridge High (Littleton, Colo.) on Saturday to conclude play in the Millard North pool.

The tourney, which concludes Sunday, goes on at the same time as the NCAA College World Series in Omaha, and the Lums plan to take in as much action as they can at Rosenblatt Stadium.

It’s the third time in four years the Lums will be making the trip to Omaha. Coeur d’Alene didn’t go last year because of the downturn in the economy.

“We like to give them that experience of seeing baseball in different parts of the country,” Lums coach Lloyd Duman said. “I stress the experience of playing teams around the country, seeing how seriously different areas of the country take their baseball.”

Coeur d’Alene dropped to 9-9 after losing 9-2 to Lakeside Industries and 10-2 to Taylor Baseball on Saturday at Bailey-Brayton Field in Pullman at the Palouse Summer Series.

Chad Nyquist went 2 for 2 with an RBI triple in the Lakeside game, and Pete Hoffman struck out five in five innings.
