Sweet 16 Field Set

The Sweet 16 field is set in the men's NCAA Tournament. Half the teams earned their spot on Saturday while eight more picked up wins in the third round on Sunday. Among those moving on are eighth-seeded Kentucky, 11th-seeded Tennessee and top-seeds Arizona and Virginia. The Wildcats clash with fourth-seeded Louisville in a Bluegrass State showdown. Louisville won the regular season matchup 73-66. Also in the Midwest Regional, the Volunteers take on last year's national runner-up Michigan. A win by the Cardinals and the second-seeded Wolverines would set up a title game rematch from last season. Arizona and Virginia blew out Gonzaga and Memphis respectively to advance. Among those ousted Sunday were top-seeded Wichita State and second-seeded Kansas. The Shockers fell to Kentucky and lost for the first time all season. The Sweet 16 starts on Thursday.

Commencement, it is said, is a beginning. Yet graduations are also the end of an era--for students and their parents. For the kids, it's a time of excitement and promise. For parents, it's a bit more bittersweet.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.

Ben Stephens pitched into the ninth inning leading Warrenton to a 5-0 win over Washington at Ronsick Field. Stephens struck out 10 and walked three before leaving the game. Washington loaded the bases in the ninth, but the game was called when heavy rain and lightning moved in. Warrenton scored single runs in the first, sixth, and seventh and added two insurance runs in the ninth.
