St. Francis de Sales High School diving coach Scott TenEyck doesn't throw out


praise just for kicks, so it's a pretty big deal when he says Knights junior Dylan Szegedi is one of the most talented high school divers he's ever coached.

"He's going to be either second or third (all-time)," said TenEyck, who has coached at St. Francis since 1996. "At the top state level, kids are throwing harder dives and Dylan has the potential to be right up there. Right now he's the third-best boy I've ever coached, if not my second best."

TenEyck, who has also coached St. Ursula Academy's divers for 14 years, has had one state diving champion at St. Francis (Andy Seibenick) and one state runner-up (Scott Koenig). He also coached his oldest daughter, Brittany, to back-to-back state titles for Lake High School.

Szegedi, who was born and raised in Oregon and still lives there, scored 368.65 points to place 12th out of 24 divers last season at the Division I state swimming and diving championships in Canton.

Clay Rolf takes up a lot of space wherever he goes

Clay Rolf is impossible to miss on the basketball court.

At nearly 6-7 and 250 pounds, it's easy to see why Bowling Green State University offered the Eastwood senior a football scholarship.

Do fans who for the first time watch Rolf play basketball view him merely as a football player who happens to play basketball? Or, do fans walk away thinking, 'Hey, this kid can really ball.' "

"Here's what I would say," third-year Eastwood basketball coach Todd Henline said. "They're going to be more impressed with his athletic ability than his basketball ability. Because of his size, he's going to be able to score and rebound in the Suburban Lakes League. But he moves well and he has a soft touch, which are great basketball attributes.

"Basketball is third on the list for Clay. He is really good at saying whatever sport happens to be in season, that's his favorite sport. He's a great kid, but the time he's put into basketball has been minimal. For what he's done for us the last three years - he's averaged a double-double and he disrupts other teams' offenses - if he would have concentrated on basketball and worked at it, he would have been one of those players where you were saying 'Wow!' "

Pendleton girls don’t miss a beat as indoor season begins
The University of Michigan women's track and field team picked up three victories at the Penn State Northeast Challenge on Jan. 17, winning the 20-pound weight throw, shot put and 4x800-meter relay at the Ashenfelter III Track.

The Pendleton sisters from Woodmore helped the Wolverines achieve a sweep in the 20-pound weight throw.

The Wolverines swept the top three spots in the event, led by Ashley Greer's (Ann Arbor Pioneer) first-place throw of 17.3 meters (56-9¼). Sisters Erin Pendleton and Emily Pendleton took second and third, with Erin throwing 17.28 meters (56-8½) for runner-up and Emily recording a third-place throw of 17.05 meters (55-11¼).

Emily has already had quite a career at Michigan. After graduating from Woodmore in 2007, she earned First Team All-Big Ten in last year’s outdoor season.

Emily finished in ninth place in the discus throw at NCAA Championships with a top throw of 160-11 (49.06m) and had a career-best throw of 180-8 (55.06m) in the discus at the NCAA Mideast Regional, automatically qualifying her for the NCAA Championships.
