Finlandia Hockey Teams Projected Last
Both Finlandia University hockey teams are projected to finish last in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association this season. The preseason coaches’ poll places the men 10th out of 10… with Saint Norbert a solid choice to repeat as champion. Saint Norbert has won three of the last four NCAA Division Three titles. The women were voted seventh out of seven teams. Lake Forest College edged out Saint Scholastica for the top spot in the poll.

Family members have gathered at his daughter’s home in Texas, where the stroke occurred. Mr. Hockey is 86.
MLB – Brewers Claim Jimenez
The Milwaukee Brewers have claimed third baseman Luis Jimenez off waivers from the Angels. Jimenez hit 20 home runs in the minors last season. The move provides an option if current third baseman Aramis Ramirez becomes a free agent.
