Australias leading womens surfing world title hope Tyler Wright has advanced to the quarter-finals of the US Open in California.However her chief rival for the crown, Courtney Conlogue of the USA, also ensured her path to the final eight with the performance of the day.In swells of less than 1m, Conlogue was at her best in her home town, narrowly edging out Australian Laura Enever with a combined score of 14.90.Wright, sitting second on the leaders board and marginally behind Conlogue, then dominated her heat against fellow Australian Keely Andrew and Malia Manuel of Hawaii, posting wave scores of 7.17 and 6.10.It keeps her hopes alive of a fourth event victory of the season after she also won her opening round heat.This is such a different type of wave than I am used to. We do not get these type of waves at home, Wright said.I came here about a month ago to train specifically because I am a heavy-footed surfer.The pair will be joined in the quarter-finals by fellow Australian Stephanie Gilmore and Lakey Peterson of the United States.Meanwhile Enever, Andrew and 2011 US Open champion Sally Fitzgibbons will make up the trio of Australians in the fourth round when surfing resumes on Thursday (Friday AEST), after they finished second in their third-round heats.Hawaiian Carissa Moore, who is third in the world rankings, will also be forced to do it the hard way through the fourth round after she finished last in her third-round heat.The US Open is the sixth stopover on the 10-event womens tour.

Emery skated the length of the ice and fought an unwilling Holtby during the third period of the Flyers 7-0 loss Friday night in Philadelphia. He was given 29 penalty minutes, including a game misconduct. But Emery did not face even a disciplinary hearing with NHL senior vice president of player safety Brendan Shanahan because rules 46. http://www.cheaplightningjerseyschina.com/peter-budaj-jersey/ . Perez, 35, posted a 1-2 record with a 3.69 earned-run average in 19 relief appearances last season. His season ended Aug. 9 due to a torn ligament in his left elbow. Perez joins infielder Andy LaRoche and catcher Mike Nickeas with minor-league agreements for 2014 that include invitations to attend spring training. Tyler Johnson Jersey . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. Anton Stralman Jersey . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010. The match was similar to Isners quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of serve. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The last time No. 17 Florida State visited Syracuse, Dalvin Cook was third on the Seminoles depth chart and looking for an opportunity to prove himself.Two years later, Cook is on the precipice of becoming the Seminoles career rushing leader.The junior, who has 3,941 career yards, needs 19 yards on Saturday to break Warrick Dunns 20-year old mark. He is also 59 yards away from becoming just the sixth player in Atlantic Coast Conference history to reach 4,000 yards and would be the first to do it in three years.Former North Carolina State standout Ted Brown is the ACCs career rushing leader with 4,602 yards from 1975-78. He is also the quickest to reach 4,000 yards as he did it in his 38th game. Saturday will be Cooks 36th.Cook said he talked to Dunn before the Oct. 29 game against Clemson, but added there wasnt any discussion about the record. Cook reiterated earlier this week how much he has admired Dunn for what he has done on and off the field.When you have a guy like Warrick at the top of the list and see what he did with the program and as a human being, you have to humble yourself, Cook said. This is kind of like the first game of the season where I have to keep my emotions in check.Last Friday against Boston College , Cook appeared as if he was going to break Dunns record at home as he had 108 yards through three quarters. But with FSU (7-3, 4-3 ACC, No. 17 CFP) up 35-0 coach Jimbo Fisher rested his starters in the fourth.The Carrier Dome tough carries special significance for Cook.It was there in 2014 he had his first 100-yard game (122 yards on 23 carries) in a 38-20 win. That was the first of five 100-yard games for Cook that season as he became the first freshman in school history to rush for over 1,000 yards (1,008).It was kind of like a situation I got thrown into due to injuries. They had confidence in me and I took advantage of the opportunities, ran from there and kept building my momentum, Cook said. I had to grow up quick and make the plays.Last season he broke Dunns school single-season mark and finished with 1,691 yards. Cook didnt have a 100-yard rushing game this season until Sept. 24, when he had a careeer-best 267 yards at South Florida and has had six 100-yard games in his past seven.dddddddddddd.With Florida State out of contention for a spot in the College Football Playoff, Cook has quietly put together what could be his best season. He is second among Power 5 running backs in rushing yards (1,242) and yards from scrimmage (1,642) while scoring 14 touchdowns.Hes probably one of or the fastest back that we have in the conference, Syracuse coach Dino Babers said. I thought he was really good, but I didnt know how fast he was until I saw the Clemson game, and I saw him run away from the Clemson secondary. We couldnt run away from their secondary people.Cooks biggest improvement has been catching the ball. He has two 100-yard receiving games this season, including in an Oct. 1 loss to North Carolina when he became the first FSU running back to have 100 yards rushing and receiving in the same game.I mean, hes always caught the ball well. But understanding how to run routes where leverages are and how to set holds. Now hes got certain things down and he keeps adding to his repertoire, Fisher said.Cooks college career is likely down to its final three games, including a bowl game. Syracuse (4-6, 1-5) is Florida States last ACC game this season followed by the Nov. 26 game at home vs. Florida.Cook said he wouldnt discuss his future until after the season. However, he has been keeping a close eye on Ezekiel Elliotts rookie season in Dallas and how that could improve his draft stock.The position (in the NFL) was on the downfall for a couple years but guys like Zeke, Melvin Gordon (Chargers) and Todd Gurley (Rams) are doing a good job of showing how you have to have a running back to be successful, Cook said.Zeke is really showing how the position is valued. He can go 80 yards with it running or catching out of the backfield and he can block well. Those are the types of guys you want to have.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25---Follow Joe Reedy at www.twitter.com/joereedy Wholesale Jerseys China Stitched Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Jerseys 2019 NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
