This is the August 7 OkState Sports Report.

Blanco Nominated for Woman of Year

Yesterday afternoon yet another recognition was bestowed upon Cowgirl tennis standout Sofia Blanco. 

The now-graduated senior was nominated for the annual NCAA Woman of the Year award. According to coach Chris Young, who joined the guys on the afternoon sports drive, Blanco was selected first by the university and then by the Big 12 conference to be the representative for this award.

Blanco went thru her career as a standout on and off the tennis court, having collected a myriad of academic awards, including being a two-time All-American.

Rodriguez Scores for Mexico

Also in Cowgirl sports, yesterday was day one of practices for the Cowgirl soccer team, but the biggest news came from the Mexican Women’s National soccer team, who was playing against Panama.

Cowgirl junior midfielder Kim Rodriguez scored on a header as part of her team’s 5-0 win. That was the first goal of her senior team career. Her teammate senior Jaci Jones tweeted out her congrats and said “can’t wait until you’re back scoring goals for us”.

Scott Sutton on Documentary

Yesterday morning, Tom Dirato filled in for the second hour of Sports Talk with Robert Allen & Friends on Triple Play Sports Radio and had Cowboy basketball assistant coach Scott Sutton on the program to talk about the documentary about his father.

“I thought it was extremely well done, extremely professional,” Sutton said. “Some parts were hard to watch, but it was fair and it told the true story of the ups and downs of my father’s life. There was thankfully a lot more ups and a lot more positives.”

Sutton says he is not sure about the timeline for when the public will be able to see the film.

Sutton also talked about the exciting fall for the program welcoming in a new recruiting class, but something that might shock some Cowboy fans was the bit of info he gave about Yor Anei’s summer.

“If you’d have told me a year ago that before his sophomore year that NBA teams would be calling about him, I would have said, ‘No, I don’t think there’s any way that’s going to happen,’ but that’s the case,” Sutton said. “He’s on the radar of NBA folks and he’s playing with such a great confidence right now.
