At the NCAA track and field outdoor championships in Des Moines, Iowa, on Friday, Oregon's English Gardner (Eastern) won the women's 100-meter dash with a time of 11.10 seconds. Louisiana State's Kimberlyn Duncan was second in 11.16, and her Tiger teammate Semoy Hackett was third at 11.33.

Oregon's Brianne Theisen won the heptathlon with 6,440 points. Kansas State's Ryann Krais (Methacton) finished 14th overall with 5,516 points after coming in third in the 800 in 2 minutes, 13.55 seconds. She was last in the 22-woman field in the long jump at 17 feet, 71/2 inches and seventh in the javelin with a 131-11 throw.

Brigham Young's Nachelle Mackie won the 800 in 2:01.06, with LSU's Charlene Lipsey second in 2:01.40. Tennessee's Chanelle Price, who trained in Philadelphia with United Stars Track Club, was third in a time of 2:01.49.

Ashley Spencer of Illinois won the 400-meter dash in 50.95. LSU's Cassandra Tate took the 400-meter hurdles in 55.22. Shalaya Kipp of Colorado was first in the 3,000-meter steeplechase in 9:49.02.

Arizona's Brigetta Barrett won the high jump with a 6-4 leap. Oklahoma's Tia Brooks won the shot put with a 60-6 effort.

On the men's side, California-Irvine's Charles Jock won the 800 run with a time of 1:45.59. Villanova sophomore Samuel Ellison finished last in the eight-man field at 1:47.62.

Illinois' Andrew Riley won the 100 with a time of 10.28. Florida's Tony McQuay took the 400-meter title in 44.58. Amaechi Morton of Stanford won the 400 hurdles in 48.79. Southern Utah's Cameron Levins was the victor in the 5,000 with a time of 13:40.05.

COLLEGE BASEBALL: In the super regionals, LSU hit tying home runs in the ninth, 10th, and 11th innings to prolong a thriller with upstart Stony Brook long enough for a downpour to postpone the game until Saturday morning in Baton Rouge, La. After Mason Katz's blast to left off Seawolves reliever Jasvir Rakkar tied it at 4, the Tigers nearly won it when the next batter, Raph Rhymes, pulled a shot down the line that sailed over the left-field wall, but was ruled foul.

OLYMPICS: Refusing to compete against a fellow athlete at the London Games because of nationality or religion would be a "serious breach" of the Olympic code of ethics, the International Olympic Committee said. The IOC said athletes and teams should stay at home if they are not prepared to compete without discrimination.

The comment came after an Algerian kayaker withdrew from a World Cup match last month in which an Israeli was entered.

Without commenting specifically, the IOC condemned such a "hypothetical scenario" at the London Olympics.

NOTEWORTHY: Retired Tennessee women's basketball coach Pat Summitt notched her first hole-in-one playing at Knoxville's Sevierville Golf Club in a foursome with Hall of Fame coach Billie Moore, former Vols player Lisa McGill Reagan, and TV analyst Debbie Antonelli.
