More national TV exposure for McIntyre, Hankoff

Two South Tahoe High School alums will appear on national television this weekend.

Freshman defensive lineman Garrett McIntyre and his Fresno State Bulldogs will appear on ESPN2 tonight at 6. The Bulldogs (4-4) will play high-scoring Hawaii.

McIntyre had two tackles last week in a 67-21 loss to Boise State, a game that was also televised nationally.

Washington State senior outside hitter Adrian Hankoff’s match against 13th-ranked UCLA will be televised by FOX Sports tape delayed at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Hankoff is having a team MVP-type season, leading the Cougars in kills per game with 3.78, 190 total digs and 30 service aces.

The two-time Northern Nevada League Player of the Year was the only Cougar to reach double figures in kills (14) in a 30-28, 30-22, 30-24 defeat to sixth-rated Stanford Oct. 17 in Stanford, Cal. She also served two aces.

Three-time All-American Logan Tom of Stanford only delivered three more kills than Hankoff.

The difficult road trip became tougher a night later when the Cougars dropped a five-gamer to unranked Cal, 26-30, 30-20, 26-30, 30-27, 16-14. Hankoff again led the Cougars in the kill department as she and Holly Harris knocked down 15. But Cal star Mia Jerkov pounded down 38 kills, one off her school record, to lead the upset.

Hankoff’s stat line also showed 10 digs and two service aces.

In addition to the televised match against UCLA, the Cougars will play top-ranked and undefeated USC on Saturday. The Cougars (14-5 overall) have slipped into a tie for sixth in the Pac-10 standings at 4-5.

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 Nov. 2 in Riverside, Calif.

The Toreros lost to LMU 3-2 in overtime on Oct. 13 and 2-0 to Portland on Oct. 18. Alex Romagnolo, a former defensive star for the STHS soccer program, is a defender/midfielder with the Toreros.

Apocotos scores seven points for Aggies

Former Whittell High soccer star Dusty Apocotos converted all seven of his extra-point attempts in UC-Davis’ 49-14 rout of Humboldt State last Saturday.

Humboldt State freshman quarterback Tim Sprinkles, a former all-league signal-caller for STHS, didn’t play after his career-high 184-yard passing game the previous week.

The third-ranked Aggies (5-1) play at Cal Poly on Saturday, while Humboldt State (1-5) travels to Western Washington.
