Can Shreveport regain footing as sports town?
The Times
Affiliated baseball, affiliated hockey, indoor football, outdoor football, a professional golf tournament that featured future PGA Tour stars — not that long ago, Shreveport, Louisiana was a sports town. Those teams, those events – they are all gone. What's left is the Independence Bowl, college football's 11th-oldest postseason affair, but one that continually fights to remain alive and relevant, and a professional basketball team that struggles to draw a couple of hundred folks despite a 92-game winning streak and back-to-back championships.

Is sportsmanship a lost cause these days?
By Bob Kowalski
When it comes to sports, figuring out the winners and losers used to be as easy as looking at the scoreboard. But with recent occurrences like the New England Patriots' "Deflategate" controversy and Major League Baseball's and the FBI's investigation into the St. Louis Cardinals' hacking of a Houston Astros database, some plays in sports have gone out of bounds. Is sportsmanship a lost cause, or can coaches play a role in developing that quality in athletes?

Lacrosse tournaments bring in people from near and far
Democrat & Chronicle
One reason the players, about 1,500 boys 14 to 17 years old, are at the Sweetlax Summer Invitational in Rochester, New York is because college coaches may be next to their parents, sitting in chairs or standing on the sidelines, scribbling notes during games. This is the time of year that coaches from lacrosse teams like Syracuse University, Maryland, Cornell, Hobart and local Division III schools move from tournaments to talent showcases on a weekly basis in search of talent for teams that will form two to four years into the future.

Experts: Endurance athletes should drink only when thirsty
HealthDay News
Endurance athletes or those who are very physically active should drink plenty of water — but only when they feel thirsty, new expert recommendations say. Athletes should listen to their body and drink water as needed to prevent a potentially deadly condition called exercise-associated hyponatremia or "water intoxication." The new guidelines were developed at the International Exercise-Associated Hyponatremia Consensus Development Conference in Carlsbad, California and published in the Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine.
