McIntyre does some sackin’ against Rainbow Warriors

Freshman defensive lineman Garrett McIntyre played more like a senior in Fresno State’s 31-21 loss to Hawaii last Friday in Fresno, Calif.

McIntyre sacked Rainbow Warrior quarterback Timmy Chang twice in the second half for losses totaling 18 yards. The former South Tahoe High middle linebacker finished with three solo tackles.

One of McIntyre sacks — a 7-yard loss on third down — made a field goal attempt more difficult for Hawaii placekicker Justin Ayat. Ayat missed the 50-yarder with Fresno State leading 14-9.

In addition, the wedge blocking leader on kick returns also got to run with the football. McIntyre returned kickoffs for 19 and 9 yards in the first half.

The Bulldogs (4-5 overall) has a bye this week before playing host to Tulsa on Nov. 9 at Bulldog Stadium.

Martin 34th in L.B. Invitational

Cory Martin, a former cross country runner for South Tahoe High, finished 34th last weekend in the Long Beach Invitational.

After running a career-best 26:08 in the open division of the Stanford Invitational on Sept. 28, Martin ran his 8-kilometer home race in 26:56 as the 49ers finished fourth out of nine teams. Martin, a junior, missed the start of the season because of an ankle injury.

Jose Rangel of Cal Coast won the 8K in 25:03.

Next up for Martin and the 49ers are the Big West Championships on Saturday in Riverside, Calif.

Hankoff has career-best block effort

A weekend split with the nationally ranked Southern California schools has left Adrian Hankoff and the Washington State Cougars in a tie for fifth in the Pac-10 volleyball standings.

Hankoff, a senior from South Lake Tahoe, registered a career-high six blocks in the Cougars’ five-game thriller over No. 13 UCLA. It was the second time this season that the teams have played a five-game match.

Hankoff’s stat line also read 14 kills and 14 digs.

She had seven digs and six kills in a four-game defeat to No. 1 USC. After losing the first two games handily, the Cougars bounced back to win the third game, 30-28, before dropping the deciding game, 30-25.

Washington State (15-6 overall, 5-6 in the Pac-10) travels to No. 19 Arizona State on Friday and No. 14 Arizona on Saturday.

Apocotos scores seven points for Aggies

While an efficient UC Davis offense isn’t giving former Whittell High soccer star Dusty Apocotos many field goal tries, Apocotos has been perfect on his extra-point attempts the past two games.

He converted all seven of his extra-point attempts in UC-Davis’ 49-14 rout of Humboldt State Oct. 19 and made good on four tries in a 28-14 victory over Cal Poly last Saturday.

The third-ranked Aggies (6-1) play host to Saint Mary’s at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Toomey Field.

Toreros get first WCC victory
