HOSHAYA, ISRAEL > Basketball
Shafir, a junior guard at Toledo, scored a career-high 40 points in a 76--68 victory over USC in the WNIT final to earn tournament MVP honors. An Orthodox Jew, Shafir received permission from her rabbi to compete on Saturdays but in observance of other Sabbath restrictions walks to every road game arena instead of taking the team bus.
MILWAUKIE, ORE. > Racquetball
Knoth, a sophomore at Oregon State, won USA Racquetball's national intercollegiate men's singles title in Tempe, Ariz., to earn a spot on the adult U.S. national team. In 2010, Knoth won singles titles in the 18-U junior nationals and world championships, and was named All-America and USA Racquetball's male junior athlete of the year.
KEARNEY, MO. > Powerlifting
Addie, a senior at Kearney High, defended her power-press title at the Natural Athlete Strength Association nationals in Oklahoma City with a hang-clean record for high school juniors and seniors in the 198-pound weight class (187). Last spring Addie was named all-state in the shot put. She will compete in track and field for Murray State in the fall.
