South’s Armbrust, Nunemaker win doubles, Central’s Sanborn singles in CHS Invitational – Sports – Salina Journal

For the most part, Iliana Armbrust and Alexxa Nunemaker simply took care of business Saturday on their run through the doubles bracket at the Salina Central Invitational.

But when they needed to raise their game in the finals, they found another gear.

“When McPherson started gaining points on us and it almost went to a tiebreaker, we were able to finish points,” said Armbrust, who along with Nunemaker helped Salina South to a second-place team finish by edging McPherson’s CeAnna Allen and Perrin Schneider, 8-6, in the finals. “We were able to finish it off.

“I’m very happy with the way we played. We worked really hard in the final match for first place. We played really well against McPherson to beat both of their doubles teams.”

McPherson, with runner-up finishes in both singles and doubles, claimed the team championship with 61 points, while South was second with 56 and

Chiefs, 49ers, Raiders win to start 2020 season

SANTA CLARA — In a blink of a sucker-punched eye, 2020 brings us the NFL season tonight. Will it end on time Feb. 7, with the Lombardi Trophy on a Tampa Bay catwalk? Hold on, one prediction at a time, and let’s cut to my Week 1 nasal swabs:

Chiefs 24, Texans 17: The defending Super Bowl champs paid off their QB, tight end, head coach and GM. The 49ers pretty much did the same, minus the championship ring engraved with how the Chiefs overcame a 10-point deficit in SBLIV. (Line: Texans +9 1/2)

49ers 31, Cardinals 16: George Kittle vowed at the Super Bowl to go on a Revenge Tour, and it starts with an opponent that took out his ankle, knee and two ensuing games last year. “He’s going to go down as one of the best ever – if he stays healthy,” Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said

Dominic Thiem all business in win over Felix Auger-Aliassime | TENNIS.com

The 20-year-old Canadian, Felix Auger-Aliassime, might well represent the future of tennis, his blossoming arsenal demonstrated elegantly last week when he won three matches to advance to the round of 16 of a major for the first time in his career.     

Auger-Aliassime’s opponent today, Dominic Thiem is one long, strong athlete.  To borrow from the pop music world, call him tennis’ Tower of Power. So it was that in this match, Thiem made a statement worthy of one of that band’s trademark songs – “You’re Still a Young Man.”

Showing off much of the physicality and all-court prowess that has helped him reach three Grand Slam singles finals, Thiem cruelly and kindly jolted Auger-Aliassime into the present with a nearly flawless 7-6 (4), 6-1, 6-1 master class in how contemporary big boys do business in week two. 

Said Auger-Aliassime, “You play those top five players and it reaches another level.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s among friends on Labor Day as the support among unions grows.

“I make no apologies, I am a union man,” the former vice president said nearly a year and a half ago at his first campaign rally after announcing his candidacy for the White House, which was held appropriately at a union hall near Pittsburgh, Pa.

AFL-CIO CHIEF CHALLENGED ON BIDEN’S PROMISE TO CREATE JOBS

Fast forward to the present day and Biden – who’s long been a strong supporter of organized labor – heads to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on Monday to speak with labor leaders. The former vice president will visit the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO headquarters and join a virtual event with union President Richard Trumka, and take questions from the rank and file members. Additionally, he secured
