Stanford's Quantrill gets pitching start in all-star game

 

Stanford sophomore Cal Quantrill has been named a starting pitcher for the Coastal Plain League All-Star Game, the league announced recently. The showcase will be played July 14 at Big Rock Stadium in Morehead City, N.C.

Quantrill, a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American during the 2014 Cardinal campaign, is 2-0 with a 0.90 ERA in two starts for the Morehead City Marlins this summer. He has allowed just one run, while striking out 15 and walking two.

Opponents have been limited to a .143 batting average (5-35) and produced only two extra-base hits (two doubles) against the rising sophomore.

Georgia's Jared Cheek will start for the West All-Stars against Quantrill's East team.

Three other Cardinal sophomore pitchers are also on the Marlins' club -- Tyler Thorne, Chris Viall and Griffin Weir. Thorne has a 1.00 ERA in nine innings, Weir owns a 3.60 ERA in five innings and Viall allowed two earned runs in his only appearance.

Basketball

Incoming freshman power forward Reid Travis underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on Monday and will be sidelined four to six weeks, said Cardinal men's head coach Johnny Dawkins.

Travis, a 6-foot-8, 235-pounder from De La Salle High, was a McDonald's All-American this past season. He is expected to compete for a starting job following the graduation of Dwight Powell and Josh Huestis.

Rowing

Stanford sophomore Lilly Tinapple will represent Australia later this month at the 2014 U-23 World Championships in Varese, Italy.

"I'm really excited to be given this opportunity to represent Australia at under 23 worlds!" said Tinapple. "The other girls and I are fired up to see what we can do over in Italy."

Tinapple is a member of the Australia coxed eight. She made the team by racing with other collegiate rowers in the U.S. who were from Australia in a regatta on Lake Mercer in West Windsor, N.J. in June.

Since racing in New Jersey, Tinapple has been training at Dartmouth in New Hampshire. She is set to leave this week for Italy to train at the pre-worlds training camp at the Australian European training centre in Varese.

Tinapple will be in Varese all the way up until the U-23 World Championships begin on July 24. The first women's eight race at U-23 World's will take place on Friday, July 25 at 12:18 p.m.

Last year Tinapple competed at the U-23 World Championships in Linz, Austria, placing fourth in the women's eight.
