compiled from LPGA and Ohio State reports

Rosie Jones, a 13-time winner on the LPGA Tour who has played on seven different Solheim Cup teams during her long and storied career which spans nearly three decades, has been selected captain of the 2011 U.S. Solheim Cup Team. The 2011 Solheim Cup will be played at Killeen Castle in County Meath, Ireland from Sept. 23-25.

Jones, a playing member on the first U.S. Solheim Cup Team in 1990 who also sank the putt to clinch the 2002 Solheim Cup.

“I am honored and absolutely ecstatic to be chosen as the 2011 Solheim Cup captain,” said Jones. “The Solheim Cup has been a huge part of my career as a player and now I couldn’t be more proud to represent the United States and have the opportunity to lead our players across the pond to Killeen Castle to retain the Cup.”

The 2011 Solheim Cup will be the 12th staging of the biennial, trans-Atlantic team match-play competition featuring the best 12 U.S.-born players from the LPGA and the best 12 European-born players representing the Ladies European Tour (LET). The U.S. leads the series, 8-3. Rosie Jones faces a challenge in Ireland, as the European Team has won all of its three Solheim Cup events on European soil. The European Captain will be the same as in 2009, Alison Nicholas.

In her days as a member of the U.S. squad, Jones recorded 12 points over seven Solheim Cups,including an overall singles record of 3-3-1. Her most recent appearance came at the 2005 competition played at the Crooked Stick Golf Club in Carmel, Indiana, where her U.S. team beat the Europeans by three points, tying the closest match in the history of the event.

Sports Spotlight: Nathan Weeks Marysville Football RB

Every week during the high school football season on WPKO-FM/WBLL-AM in Bellefontaine, we try to feature a football player, whether it be high school, college, the NFL, the Hall of Fame or from coaching.

One of the players we featured during the 2009 season was senior Nathan Weeks from Marysville High School.

Nathan Weeks had to earn his way onto the varsity team in 2007 by playing on the offensive line. Then in 2008, he became the Monarchs workhorse at Fullback, gaining 982 yards, averaging 5.6 yards per carry and scored 12 touchdowns to lead Marysville to the state playoffs for the first time in seven years. The Monarchs were 7-4, 4-3 which tied for fourth in the tough Ohio Capital Conference, Cardinal Division which includes: Dublin Jerome, Dublin Scioto, Olentangy,Olentangy Liberty, Westerville Central,Westerville North and Westerville South. They ended up being a Division I Regional Quarterfinalist.

In 2009 Marysville finished at  3-7, 2-5 in the division. They beat Marion Harding, 39-6; Westerville Central, 27-7 and Westerville North, 37-7.

A throwback Fullback to the days of yesteryear, Weeks is a bruising Fullback who at 6’2, 230 pounds simply punishes tacklers.

A state semifinalist wrestler, who can squat 400 pounds, was voted captain by his teammates for 2009 football season.

Nathaniel Owen Weeks is the son of Scott and Loretta Weeks.

NASCAR WEEK 3: Las Vegas Motor Speedway February 28

The 2010 Nascar season moves into week three this Sunday at 3 p.m. for the Sprint Cup Shelby American on Fox-TV.

This is one of the circuits biggest tracks with a seating capacity of 142,000. The race will go 267 laps (400.5 miles). Mark Martin won the first race at Las Vegas on March 1, 1998. His average speed of 146.554 mph remains the race record.

Last season, in the Shelby 427, Kyle Busch and Clint Boyer duked it out for the final 58 laps, with Busch holding on in the final two restarts to claim the win.

The speedway’s recent $35 million upgrade increased the banking and moved pit road closer to the grandstands. The wide racing surface is fast and driver-friendly.

No driver has won the Las Vegas Cup from the pole. Jeff  Burton is the only driver with multiple wins at the track in a Cup and a Nationwide Series car. As far as owners go, Jack Rousch (6) and Rick Hendrick (4) have accounted for 10 wins in the 12 Cup races held at Las Vegas.

This year’s Co-Grand Marshall’s will be Carroll Shelby and Kim Kardashian will give the command, “Drivers, start your engines.”!
