Bogard and teammate Rosanna Delurgio were the only non-Division I college athletes at the U.S. Open event.

Bogard has finished second in the 100 backstroke for two straight years at the college national finals, with Delurgio winning the event last season.

The Whittell High junior varsity girls’ basketball team started the season with two wins at the Lovelock Tournament on Saturday.
The Warriors kicked off their season with a 43-13 win over host Lovelock behind 22 points from Ashley Makara.
“I knew (Makara) had speed, but she was like a racehorse on a mission,” Whittell coach George McKool said. “No one could stay with her.”
Whittell was down to only six players for its game against Battle Mountain, but freshman Jessica Woods scored a game-high 18 points as all six of the Warriors got on the scoreboard and the Warriors edged out a 46-42 win.
