Van Houzen signs with Hope College

TRAVERSE CITY — Traverse City West volleyball standout Courtney Van Houzen will sign with Hope College on March 12.

A four-year varsity player, Van Houzen helped the Titans win a district title, was named first-team all-Big North Conference and second-team All-Region.

For the season, she had 315 Kills, 221 digs, 64 aces and 34 solo blocks.

Bud Selig wants tougher penalties

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig wants tougher penalties for major league players who violate the sport’s drug agreement.

Speaking at a news conference on Saturday, Selig says the situation surrounding last year’s positive drug test of All-Star game MVP Melky Cabrera and the allegations players received banned substances from a now closed Florida anti-aging clinic helped lead him to seek stiffening of penalties as quickly as possible.

He declined to give any specifics of what he had in mind, saying MLB Executive Vice President Rob Manfred and players’ association head Michael Weiner will meet.

Clements sent to sports psychologist

AVONDALE, Ariz. — NASCAR is sending suspended Nationwide Series driver Jeremy Clements to a sports psychologist after he made insensitive remarks during an interview.

NASCAR officials are hoping to get Clements back on the track soon, but the 28-year-old will have to work with Dr. Richard Lapchick before he’ll be allowed back in his car.

“No secret we did suspend Jeremy. We believe strongly that we made the right move,” NASCAR Senior Vice President of Racing Operations said Saturday from Phoenix International Raceway. “Our go-forward plan with Jeremy is to quickly engage Dr. Richard Lapchick to work with Jeremy as soon as possible and get Jeremy back in the race car as soon as possible and as soon as we deem fit.”
