Utes claim ski title

Utah junior Sophia Laukli put in a dominant performance Saturday to win the NCAA women’s Nordic 15-kilometer freestyle championship at Soldier Hollow, as the Utes cruised to their third consecutive NCAA team title and fourth in the last five completed national championships. Overall, it is the Utes’ 15th team national championship in program history.

The Utes took the crown by amassing 578 total points over the three-day competition, followed by Vermont in second place (511.5), Denver in third (436.5) and Colorado in fourth (435).

“It’s amazing, especially (being) here and winning it at home in front of the big crowds and everybody that’s up here cheering us on,” said Utah Director of Skiing Fredrik Landstedt. “It’s just an incredible feeling. Winning our third straight, it feels great. There’s always more pressure when you are trying to do it at home. But we were able to do it here and after some bad weather on Wednesday, it was really good in Park City and near perfect conditions here at Soldier Hollow as well.”

Wayment wins title

Courtney Wayment led BYU women’s track and field on day one of the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships at the Birmingham CrossPlex on Friday, taking home an individual national title in the 5000-meters.

Wayment’s performance was the highlight of the night for BYU, as she won the 5000m with a time of 15:30.17. The senior ran in the front pack of four athletes for the majority of the race before pulling away in the final kilometer, holding off NC State’s Katelyn Tuohy and Alabama’s Mercy Chelangat for the first-place finish.

Wayment’s title is the 10th indoor individual title in BYU women’s track and field history. She also became the second athlete in program history to earn a second indoor individual title and the first to do so in two different events. Wayment also won the 3000-meters at the 2021 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships.

BYU 8th at NCAA finals

BYU women’s track and field finished eighth overall at the 2022 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships behind a runner-up finish by Claire Seymour in the 800-meter at the Birmingham CrossPlex on Saturday.

Seymour took her No. 1 qualifying time into the 800m final, finishing second just behind Virginia Tech’s Lindsey Butler (2:01.37) with a personal-best time of 2:01.96.

“She prepared herself well, “BYU Director of Track and Field Ed Eyestone said of Seymour. “She didn’t care what she was ranked coming in, she knew it was all about her performance on the day of the meet. She showed great poise, confidence and determination. She ran a controlled effort that put her in a good position. What an amazing evening for Claire Seymour!”

Brady returns

Tom Brady’s retirement lasted 40 days.

Brady said Sunday he is returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for his 23rd season in the NFL. The seven-time Super Bowl champion announced his decision on Twitter and Instagram, saying he has “unfinished business.’’

“These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands,’’ Brady wrote.”That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa.’’

The announcement comes the same day Brady posted a video on his Instagram stories in which soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo asked him, “You’re finished right?” Brady’s answer was not audible, but the expression on his face suggested he really hadn’t closed the door on retirement.

In a statement Sunday evening, Bucs general manager Jason Licht said the announcement was something the team had been preparing for in recent days.

“[Head coach Bruce Arians] and I have had plenty of conversations with Tom recently that led us to believe there was a realistic chance he would want to come back,” Licht said. “Tom is the greatest quarterback of all time who is still playing at an elite level. With this decision now made, we will continue to move forward with our offseason plans to reload this roster for another championship run.”
