Beavers beat Heels to win College World Series


Oregon State defeated North Carolina 3-2 Monday at Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha to win the best of three NCAA championship series 2-1 and capture its first national title in baseball. It was the first team championship for a Beaver team since men's cross country in 1961.

UNC-CH yielded an unearned run in the eighth on a throwing error. Beaver mound stars Dallas Buck and Kevin Gunderson combined to hold the Tar Heels scoreless in the eighth and ninth.

Irish baseball coach to interview for LSU job

The Baton Rouge Advocate has reported that Notre Dame coach Paul Mainieri will interview for the LSU head baseball coaching position.

A former LSU player, Mainieri will be in Baton Rouge on Tuesday night and Wednesday to interview with LSU athletic director and former Tigers baseball coach Skip Bertman.

His record in 12 seasons at Notre Dame is 533-213-3. Former ECU slugger Cliff Godwin is currently on the Notre Dame staff.

Cal QB suspended after assault charge

The fairy tale career of Cal quarterback Steve Levy took an unexpected turn early Sunday morning in San Francisco, according to a report in The Berkley Voice.

Levy, who will be a senior next season, was arrested after a fight at a bar on the corner of Montgomery and Jackson streets. According to San Francisco Police Department spokesman Dewayne Tully, Levy was booked for felony assault.

Tully said SFPD won't release more information on the arrest until today.

Considered an overachiever with tremendous heart and limited physical skills, Levy led Cal to a 27-3 victory over Stanford in the 2005 Big Game followed by a 35-28 victory over Brigham Young in the Las Vegas Bowl.

A career backup who had been converted from quarterback to fullback and then back again, Levy had not attempted a pass in his career going into the 2005 season. However, when starter Joe Ayoob struggled toward the end of the 2005 season, Levy was inserted into the lineup and became an instant hit with the fans as he led Cal to two huge victories.

Cal football coach Jeff Tedford, who is on vacation, suspended Levy on Monday. The Cal sports information department issued the following statement from Tedford: "We are aware of the situation with Steve. He will not participate in any team functions until we feel we have all of the information."

Cal athletic director Sandy Barbour also issued a statement: "We've taken initial action. We are now gathering information and will take appropriate action when we believe we have the complete facts."
