Madison, Wisc. ÃƒÆ’ƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Over the three-day Memorial Day holiday weekend, the top 14 schools in the nation – as determined by their performance in one of the seven Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association conferences to which they belong – were in America’s Heartland racing for the 2010 ICSA/APS Team Race National Championship title on Lake Mendota. And for one team, St. Mary’s College (St. Mary’s, Md.), it was a reversal of fortune from 2009 when the Seahawks lost this championship on a tie breaker, to come back and win this year’s contest on a tie break with the same team – Boston College. Proving that they are a powerhouse in this format of sailing, the win marks the fifth time the Seahawks have clinched this unique championship which pits each college's three-boat team against another's in a round-robin series of matches.

Jamaican born Ben Johnson who enjoyed a high-profile athletics career during the 1980s, winning two Olympic bronze medals and an Olympic gold for Canada (which was subsequently rescinded) has accepted an invitation to be a panelist at the inaugural CLM TV Sports Symposium to be held at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, New York on Thursday May 27, 2010.
Miami FC was as unable to overcome a two-goal disadvantage in the second half despite a number of offensive opportunities in a 3-1 loss to the Austin Aztex on a rainy night at Lockhart Stadium, ending a run of six straight games without losing a game. The Blues will look to bounce back on the road against the Puerto Rico Islanders on June 2.
Miami FC increased its undefeated streak to five with a 1-1 draw against the NSC Minnesota Stars last Saturday in Blaine, Minnesota. Miami will return to Lockhart Stadium to face the Stars once again this Saturday, May 22. Kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m.
