Ex-Trojan remembered

CENTRAL LAKE — The Central Lake softball team ended its season on Tuesday in an 8-0 district final loss to Bellaire, but head coach Mac Eckhardt had some words of thanks in honor of the late Maris Spaulding, a former Central Lake player:

“The Central Lake Lady Trojans would like to thank the surrounding softball community for their kind gestures in memory of our dear Maris Spaulding this past year. We feel very fortunate to be part of such a caring league of young ladies,” Eckhardt wrote in an e-mail.


Julie Hermann visits Rutgers

PISCATAWAY, N.J. — Rutgers incoming athletic director Julie Hermann visited the campus Wednesday and was to meet with coaching and Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delaney.

The embattled Hermann, whose appointment has come under fire since it was discovered that players on the University of Tennessee volleyball team she coached in 1997 complained she had been verbally and emotionally abusive, also plans to hold a press conference at 4 p.m.

Hermann, who is scheduled to start at Rutgers on June 17, has denied the allegations. She said that she had not heard of the letter until last week.

Her visit is another clear indication that university president Robert Barchi is not backing down from Hermann’s appointment despite calls from state politicians, who are upset that she was not vetted properly.
