Katie Hursey went to Syracuse to compete in track, but she was a triathlete by the time she left. The North Carroll alumna had known how to swim since she was young; all that remained was learning to race a bike. "From the start, the goal was to get her to qualify for the Olympics," said Chris Fox, Hursey's coach at Syracuse. During her senior year at Syracuse, USA Triathlon recruited Hursey to begin training for the Olympics, seeing how strong a runner she was. Hursey, who is from Hampstead but now moves often as part of her triathlon training, is continuing her journey to qualify for the Olympic team for the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Lauren Gibson watched from the dugout as her close friend ended her collegiate softball career. Keilani Ricketts drove in four runs in Oklahoma's national championship-clinching game in the Women's College World Series against Tennessee on June 4, but it was hard for Gibson to be completely crushed. A week later, the Chesapeake-AA graduate would become teammates with the player who just ended her four years at Tennessee. As teammates on last year's USA Softball Women's National Team, the Tennessee second baseman and the Oklahoma pitcher became great friends, bonding over gold medals and road trips.

Troy Stokes Jr. expected Team USA to face spirited competition at the COPABE Pan Am 'A' 14-and-under baseball championships in Managua, Nicaragua last month. Stokes, a Woodlawn native, was proven correct right away, with members of the Venezuelan and Mexican national teams telling members of the local media how they planned to beat the U.S. handily. The competitive words motivated members of the U.S. team — possibly too much. "Before the game we were really pumped," Stokes said.

When the Canada and U.S. tangle at 9 tonight, they'll reignite a rivalry that offers pretty much everything a sports fan could want -  history, excitement, emotion and incredibly high stakes. When these two teams opened the FIL World Championships on July 10 in Commerce City, Colo., Canada jumped out to a 3-0 lead while holding the U.S. scoreless for the game's first 25 minutes. An eight-goal outburst over the next 20 minutes created separation from which the Canadians couldn't rebound.

The U.S. team pretty quickly threw out any concerns about a letdown game in the semifinals of the Federation of International Lacrosse World Championships on Thursday night in Commerce City, Colo. Team USA, coming off a dominant 18-5 win over the Iroquois Nation on Tuesday night, easily could have looked past an Australia team it beat, 16-7, in pool play. Instead, the United States jumped out to a 7-0, first-quarter lead on the Aussies and never slowed, winning, 22-3, at Dick's Sporting Goods Park to advance to Saturday night's gold-medal game against Canada for the fifth straight time.
