Collision Derails Sayen in NCAA Final – Sunday Sports Wrap

College Track

An unfortunate mishap dropped Michigan Tech runner Clayton Sayen to an 11th-place finish in the 1500-meter finals at the NCAA Division II Track and Field Championships Saturday. Late in the race, Sayen appeared to be headed for at least a top-five finish when he was involved in a three-runner collision. He tripped, recovered, but wound up five seconds behind the winner. The Houghton High School grad was the seventh-fastest qualifier of the 12 who had made the final field.


In the NHL conference semifinals continued last evening…
• In the Eastern Conference, the Rangers downed the Hurricanes 5-2. That series is tied 3-3, and will be decided tomorrow.


The NBA Eastern Conference final will be decided tonight, when the Heat host the Celtics. That series is tied 3-3. The winner will face the Warriors in the championship series beginning Thursday.


The Tigers lost to the Guardians 8-1 yesterday. Alex Faedo turned in a quality start, giving up two runs over six innings. Cleveland broke the game open with four runs off Jacob Barnes and Jason Foley in the seventh.

Those teams will play again this afternoon. Elvin Rodriguez will pitch against Triston McKenzie. Coverage will begin at 1:20 on 99.3 The Lift. 

The Brewers fell 8-3 to the Cardinals. Starter Adrian Houser was rocked for all eight runs over four innings. Keston Hiura and Victor Caratini homered for the Milwaukee.

The Brewers continue that series in Saint Louis this afternoon. Corbin Burnes will start against Miles Mikolas.
