Sevillano picks Notre Dame2 minute read Yesterday at 6:55 PM CDT
Sean Sevillano Jr. admitted the decision was difficult, but ultimately satisfying.
On Friday, the 6-2, 300-pound nose tackle from West St. Paul did what many young football players from Manitoba can only dream about when he confirmed he will be attending the University of Notre Dame on a football scholarship.
Sevillano will head to the South Bend, Ind., campus in 2024, rebuffing more than two dozen NCAA Division offers from schools including Ohio State University, Miami, Kansas and Auburn.
Notre Dame, a private Catholic institution, made a big impression on Sevillano, who was raised Catholic.

Smart ball technology to be trialed at rugby’s U20 world championship2 minute read Preview Wednesday, May. 17, 2023
World Rugby will trial smart ball technology at the under-20 world championship in South Africa next month, assisting officials in getting more accuracy about lineouts, potential forward passes and whether the ball has crossed the try line.
The trial comes after match officials expressed a desire for innovations to be explored to support accurate and quick decision-making. There are no plans for the technology to be implemented at the Rugby World Cup in France in September and October, but could offer a glimpse into the future of the game.
The smart ball will be tracked in 3D and in real time, with beacons positioned around the field to determine the exact position of the ball up to 20 times per second and provide immediate feedback on every kick, pass and throw.
The technology will ensure lineouts are taken from the spot the ball left the field of play and provide instantaneous feedback about whether a lineout throw is straight by measuring the angle from release to the moment it's touched by a lineout jumper.

Skater Gilles moved by support after cancer reveal3 minute read Preview Thursday, May. 11, 2023
When Piper Gilles publicly disclosed that she had recovered from ovarian cancer, she was worried that there would be some backlash from fans.
After all, Gilles had taken a medical leave of absence in the middle of the figure skating season for what she said at the time was an appendectomy but in reality the operation removed her left ovary and her appendix.
She said in an Instagram video on Sunday that she and her team had decided to keep her cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment private until after the figure skating world championships in March because she didn't want it to be a distraction for her or ice dancing partner Paul Poirier. But now that her recovery is public knowledge, the positive reaction has been overwhelming.
"I feel so moved by all of the people that have reached out," said Gilles on Wednesday. "I've heard sad stories, I've had people thanking me for talking about it, I've heard great stories where they were detected early enough and had treatment and been cured.

Transgender woman’s US cycling win within rules, UCI says3 minute read Preview Wednesday, May. 3, 2023
The victory for the first openly transgender woman to win an official cycling event should stand after she adhered to the updated policy the organization put in place last year, the global governing body for cycling said.
Austin Killips rode to victory in the fifth stage of the Tour of the Gila on Sunday, one of the few remaining marquee stage races in the United States. That gave her the overall victory by 21 seconds and earned her the polka dot jersey as the race's best climber.
But the victory by the 27-year-old American, who began racing in 2019, was met almost immediately by backlash from cycling fans on social media and some former cyclists.
Last year, the Union Cycliste Internationale changed its rules to stipulate that athletes must have serum testosterone levels of 2.5 nanomoles per liter or less for at least 24 months before they are allowed to compete in women’s events. That was an increase from past rules, which required levels below 5 nanomoles for 12 months prior to racing.
