McCook Community College sophomore Anna Sanjuan has signed a letter of intent to continue her basketball career at Benedictine College in Kansas.

“I'm extremely excited for Anna,” said recently named MCC Women’s Basketball Coach Brandon Pritchett. “She has worked so hard to get to where she is at today. Benedictine is a great fit for her both academically and athletically, and that's what it's all about.”

The 5-6 guard from Reus High School in Reus, Spain played in 31 games this season for the Lady Indians and averaged 11.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game.

Her 342 points ranked 10th among all Region IX players. She shot 36.5 percent from the field and 32.9 percent from the 3-point line (also ranked 10th in the region) and 59.3 percent from the free-throw line, getting to the line 108 times on the season – sixth most in the region. Her 121 defensive rebounds were seventh most among the region leaders. Her 95 assists were third most and her 51 steals were fourth most in the region.

At the end of the season she was named to the Nebraska Community College all-conference team.

Benedictine College is a NAIA division I school in Atchinson, Kan. located on bluffs overlooking the Missouri River, northwest of Kansas City, Missouri. The Lady Ravens went 18-13 this past season under Coach Chad Folsom, in his 18th year as coach there. The team has gone to the NAIA Division I championship tournament five of the past seven years.

In addition to being impressed with the school and the coaching staff, Sanjuan said it was very noticeable how cohesive the team was, even in workouts.

“I visited there and was really impressed with the way the team worked together in practice and supported each other in drills.”

She will graduate from MCC with a BS in Science and is looking at teaching physical education.

One of her lasting memories from MCC will always be the first time she stepped inside the Peter and Dolores Graff Events Center. “I was so big and my first thought was, ‘this is America and this gym is American big.’ It is so impressive,” she said of the place where she spent hundreds of hours over the past two years.

She said she is extremely grateful to Coach Pritchett, who as the interim coach, helped give her confidence and helped find her a place to continue playing the sport she loves.

“Benedictine is getting the whole package,” Pritchett said. “She is a great person, student, and talented basketball athlete. I'm excited to watch her grow over the next two years there.”

Alma, NE- The season was on the line for the Arapahoe Warriors as they needed a must win if they wanted a spot in the playoffs.  It was a game that ended up being a high scoring shootout as both teams together put up a 102 total points.  This game had onside kicks, fake punts that would lead to first downs and then eventually touchdowns.  Arapahoe gets the win 52-50.  Arapahoe improves to 5-3 on the year and will wait to see if they sneak into the playoffs which will be released Saturday morning.

DENVER (AP) — Nolan Arenado lingered near the batter's box a little longer than usual as he stared at his liner.

It wasn't to admire. It was simply to make sure.

In a season that's been so foul for Colorado, he wanted to double-check that his deep drive indeed stayed fair before celebrating.

Arenado hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning to give the Rockies a 7-6 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

A rare bright spot in what's been a trying stretch for a club that's all but assured it won't be making a third straight postseason appearance. The Rockies are 14-33 since June 21, which is one of the worst marks by winning percentage in the majors over the time frame.

"It's been a grind for all of us individually and as a team," said Arenado, who'd left four runners on base before connecting on his 27th homer of the season. "It feels good to come out with a win right there."

After Trevor Story was hit by a pitch to start the ninth, Arenado launched a fastball from Archie Bradley (3-5) over the fence in left — and just fair. It was Arenado's third career walk-off homer and first since June 18, 2017, against San Francisco.

"I hit it good," Arenado said.

Bradley threw it good, too.

Immediately after contact, Bradley began walking toward the dugout. He knew. He had his career-best string of 17 1/3 scoreless innings snapped.

"This is our last time here and I'm not sad about it," Bradley said about Coors Field. "I will be the first person happy to get out of here."

Arenado was doused with Powerade soon after crossing home plate and mobbed by teammates. Colorado ended a string of five straight losses to Arizona.

Arenado's homer came after Ketel Marte delivered a two-out, run-scoring bloop single in the top of the inning to give the Diamondbacks the lead. Marte dropped a slider from closer Scott Oberg (6-1) just over the head of Story, who turned and threw home too late. It was Marte's career high-tying fourth hit of the day.

Eduardo Escobar hit a two-run homer and Wilmer Flores added a solo shot in the sixth to give Arizona a 5-2 lead. The Rockies tied it up on pinch-hitter Ryan McMahon's three-run homer in the bottom half of the inning off Yoshihisa Hirano.

"That was fun, huh?" McMahon cracked. "I had a good time."

The Diamondbacks' bullpen was pressed into duty earlier than expected when starter Robbie Ray left in the third inning because of spasms in his lower back. Ray made one warmup pitch before the trainer came out to check on him. He said he could've pushed through, but he didn't "want it to turn into something that is a bigger issue."

It was far from a defensive clinic for the Diamondbacks, who committed a season-high four errors. Christian Walker, Nick Ahmed and Marte were charged with errors on fielding plays and Flores on a throw.

"This," Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said, "is a tough game to absorb."

TRAINER'S ROOM

Diamondbacks: OF David Peralta has been dealing with a stiff neck and didn't start on his 32nd birthday. He entered in the seventh as part of a double-switch and had a single in the eighth.

FREELAND'S DAY

Rockies starter Kyle Freeland allowed two runs in the first before settling down. He fell apart again in the sixth in surrendering three more. The scuffling left-hander who finished fourth in the NL Cy Young voting a season ago allowed five runs over six innings in the no-decision.

EYE CONTACT

Lovullo is impressed by the poise of rookie outfielder Josh Rojas, who was acquired in the deal that sent Zack Greinke to Houston.

"He looks me in the eye when he talks to me," Lovullo said. "Young players have a tough time doing that."

Lovullo still has a hard time believing that Rojas lasted until the 26th round of the 2017 draft before the Astros selected him.

"They uncovered somebody that's pretty special," Lovullo said. "This looks like a first-round draft choice to me."

Rojas didn't start but entered as part of a double-switch in the sixth. Rojas had a double.

UP NEXT

Diamondbacks: Begin a four-game series against San Francisco on Thursday. Lefty Alex Young (4-2, 3.32 ERA) gets the start for the Diamondbacks.

Rockies: After a day off, the Rockies host Miami for three games. Righty Jon Gray (10-8, 4.06) takes the mound Friday after skipping his scheduled start Tuesday due to a sore left ankle. The Marlins will throw right-hander Sandy Alcántara (4-10, 4.44).
