Southpaw Salamida back for 4th season with Fish

  • Print

THE Winnipeg Goldeyes have signed left-handed pitcher Chris Salamida for the 2013 season and traded left-hander Todd Privett to the Amarillo Sox for future considerations.

Salamida, 28, will return for his fourth season with the defending American Association champion Goldeyes.

A product of Watervliet, N.Y., Salamida made 20 starts for the Goldeyes last season, going 5-7 with a 3.77 earned-run average. That was his lowest ERA since coming to Winnipeg.

Pischke earns award

DANE PISCHKE, a fifth-year right-side hitter from the University of Manitoba Bisons men's volleyball team, has been named the recipient of the Dale Iwanoczko Award recognizing excellence in volleyball, academics and community service.

In addition, Pischke was named a first-team all-Canadian for the second straight year after he led the Bisons in hitting percentage (.266), kills per set (3.40) and points (4.1). A four-time academic all-Canadian, Pischke has a grade-point average of 3.61 at the Asper School of Business.

Top rookies named

CASEY SCHOUTEN of the University of Winnipeg Wesmen and Kenny Rooney of the Manitoba Bisons have been named to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport men's volleyball all-rookie team. Schouten, a 6-5 opposite who is a graduate of Miles Macdonell Collegiate, led the Wesmen in service aces with 20. Rooney, a 6-7 middle, was named the 2012-13 Canada West men's volleyball rookie of the year earlier this week and was sixth in conference hitting percentage at .389.

Barclay shines at UBC

IN women's volleyball, Brandon's Lisa Barclay was named a first-team all-Canadian as a member of the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds while Rachel Cockrell of the Bisons was named to the second team. It is the first CIS all-Canadian selection for Cockrell.

All-star skaters

CAITLIN MACDONALD of the University of Manitoba women's hockey team was named a 2012-13 Canada West first team all-star on defence while forwards Nellie Minshull of the Bisons and Winnipeg's Tatiana Rafter, a member of the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, were named to the second all-star team.

Jones has alternate spot

THE Canadian Curling Association announced Wednesday that 2013 Scotties runner-up, Jennifer Jones of Manitoba, would get the Team Canada berth at the 2014 Scotties in Montreal if Scotties champion Rachel Homan also qualified for the Olympics.

Homan would have to win the 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials this December in Winnipeg to represent Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

There is a conflict between the closing weekend of the 2014 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Montreal and the opening weekend of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, so Homan's team would not be able to compete in both events.

The Jones team, as 2013 finalists, would be Team Canada at the 2014 event if the Homan team was in Sochi.
