    One of the top players on the Rochester volleyball team is suspended, and another might be facing a serious injury before their first match of the season.

    Coach Erin Leap revealed after Thursday’s scrimmage against Northwestern that first-team all-Three Rivers Conference outside hitter Christina Towne will miss the first 25 percent – in volleyball terms, the first seven matches – of the season due to suspension. Leap said the suspension was due to “disciplinary reasons from the end of the school year last year” but did not specify further.

    Ryan Johnson was heading into his eighth-grade year on the Rochester Middle School football team when coach Brian Hooker handed out a questionnaire to every player on the team during a callout meeting asking players which positions they would like to play.

    Johnson, who described his physique as “pudgy” and “chunky” at that age, said he didn’t like the idea of playing on the line, so he listed wide receiver, tight end and quarterback.

    The Rochester volleyball team has experienced all-Three Rivers Conference players, hungry newcomers and easy motivation that arose after losing a five-set grinder to Wabash in the sectional final last year.

    What they could use, though, is a little more blocking, according to coach Erin Leap.

    Leap commented after hosting a public practice at the RHS gym prior to the annual parents’ meeting.

    Perhaps you have been waiting since the end of spring sports for the start of fall sports.

    Or perhaps you have been waiting since the end of fall sports from last November for this year’s fall sports. That makes two of us.

    And with all that free time, here are some questions that have popped up for the fall. I kept it at one question per sport.

    Cubs 7, Brewers 2

    CHICAGO (AP) — After a frustrating start with the Chicago Cubs, Yu Darvish is starting to live up to his big free-agent contract.

    Darvish pitched five effective innings, Jason Heyward drove in three runs and the Cubs beat the slumping Milwaukee Brewers 7-2 on Sunday to sweep their weekend series.

    Heyward and Kyle Schwarber homered as the NL Central leaders won for the 11th time in 13 games at Wrigley Field. Anthony Rizzo collected four hits.

    Darvish, who turns 33 on Aug. 16, signed a $126 million, six-year contract with Chicago in February 2018, but struggled with injuries and confidence for much of his first year with the Cubs and the start of this season.

    He was a raconteur, a sports fan, a veteran, a grandfather and a physical education teacher.

    But he might be most well-known as a coach who had a magnetic effect on young people. He made friends with those he worked with and with those he competed against.

    Football practice starts for all IHSAA teams Monday, including Rochester. They will not include Brian Hooker, who died Jan. 3 at age 59.

    DETROIT (AP) — With about a minute to spare, Nicholas Castellanos was traded from the last-place Detroit Tigers to the contending Chicago Cubs.

    “I was sitting in the dugout and I looked up and saw the clock said 1:02. So I was like, ‘OK, finish the season strong,’” Castellanos said. “And then ...”

    The Tigers sent Castellanos to Chicago for two minor league pitchers in a deal that gives the Cubs a powerful bat against left-handed pitching. Detroit general manager Al Avila said the trade came down to the last 42 seconds before Wednesday’s deadline, which was 4 p.m. EDT and 1 p.m. in California, where the Tigers were playing the Los Angeles Angels.
