TEMPE, Ariz. – First-year head coach Megan Bartlett and the Sun Devil Softball program are excited to announce the team's seven-game fall ball slate. There are three Maroon & Gold intrasquad games along with four scrimmages against local Phoenix teams, including two games featuring in-state foe Grand Canyon. All fall games have a scheduled 6 p.m. first pitch.

ASU returns to the diamond after one of the best seasons in program history this past spring. The 2022 season saw the Sun Devils become Pac-12 Champions for the first time since 2011 after a program-record 20 conference wins. ASU also hosted a NCAA regional for the second consecutive year and a NCAA Super Regional for the first time since 2018.

The first Maroon & Gold scrimmage takes place on Thursday, Sept. 22, followed by the first fall ball showdown against South Mountain Community College on Friday, Sept. 30 at Farrington Stadium.

On Oct. 5 the Sun Devils head to GCU for a midweek game against the Lopes. The next week ASU is back at home at Farrington hosting Phoenix College on Friday, Oct. 14.

ASU will have the opportunity to regroup with a Maroon & Gold scrimmage on Oct. 21 before welcoming GCU to Farrington on Oct. 26 for the second midweek match-up.

The 2022 fall schedule will conclude with a final scrimmage on Nov. 10.

The Sun Devils have 10 returners this season, including outfielder Yanni Acuña and pitcher Marissa Schuld. Joining them are Halle Harger, Jazmyn Rollin, Liliana Thomas, Savannah Price, Jordyn Vanhook, Emily Cazares, Makenna Harper and Jazmine Hill.

Eleven new faces join the team this season, which includes eight transfers and three freshmen. Graduate student Gianna Boccagno came from Boston College, and two Virginia Tech transfers were added in Mac Osborne and Alexa Milius. Two SEC transfers, Mackenzie Nicholson and Taylor Nicholson, along with pitchers Kenzie Brown and Deborah Jones, come from Tulsa and Ball State. Rounding out the roster are Yannixa (Yaya) Acuña, who is the younger sister of graduate student Yanni Acuña; Salpointe Catholic high school product Shannon Cunningham from Tustin, Calif.; and Kalyn McCarthy from Palatine, Illinois. Freshman pitcher Kylee Magee will make her debut this season after committing to ASU back in eighth grade.

The retirement community clubhouse was packed in Gold Canyon, as friends and family gathered to wish Terenzio "Ted" L. Giannone a happy birthday.

But not just any birthday, the World War II Veteran, turned 100 years old.

"As you can see, and as I can see wonderful people, wonderful life," he said.

A color guard led the crowd of more than 100 in the the Pledge of Allegiance and the singing of God Bless America, and members of the Patriot Guard took Giannone on his very first motorcycle ride.

"It was a thrill," he said.

Giannone was born in 1922 in Brooklyn New York and can still remember fondly the cobblestone streets he grew up on.

"I started out with cobblestones in Brooklyn, and the milkman used to come in the morning, and you hear the horse clobbing and the steel wheels screeching," he said.

"Then one morning I didn't hear the screeching or the wheels, and only heard the horse, so I said what happened? I went out and he had put tires on the back of the milk wagon. Smart man," Ted recalled as from then on, he said, he knew the world was changing.

Ted went on to serve in the United States Navy Reserves in 1940. He was a turret gunner on a Grumman TBF Avenger, an airplane, fighting over the South Pacific during World War Two.

"You look for white puffs from the mortars," he said remembering his time in combat. "All I can say is that the comradeship, the heroism, devotion to duty, it was all apparent."

"We have to think about those that were, are, and are still there, and support them."

Giannone earned numerous medals for his service, reenlisting several times before retiring from the Navy, honorably discharged as Chief Petty Officer E-7, in 1965.

Setting his sights even higher, Ted worked for Grumman Aerospace and NASA during the Apollo program.

"Well NASA, my favorite thing that I can remember is meeting the astronauts," he said.

Giannone says he still gets a thrill from space, and keeps up with the latest rocket science from new explorers like Elon Musk.

"The car battery guy. He came in with the SpaceX program and he flies these things like they're bullets! And brings them back and uses them again!"

From the Philippines to Iran, Ted's service and career took him around the world, but nothing he says compares to the love of family.

He was married to his late wife Marry for 72 years and is blessed with three children, two boys and a girl.

"Trust in your friends and your family. Family to me, that's the beginning of everything."

When asked the secret to living to be 100 years old, he says good health for one, as Giannone still gets on the exercise bike.

"Every day, regularly. It's a regimen. That's what keeps me going. I get on that bike you know, get those legs going. So yeah, you got to keep active."

While he does have a caregiver, Ted says he still gets around pretty well and has a valid driver license.

But more than health, he says a good heart, mind and spirit are just as important.

"Love for your family, being honest and truthful and have faith. That's what I would suggest to anybody, especially young people," he said.

Healthy and surrounded by family and friends, Ted is looking forward to many birthdays to come.

Coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin and her team have recently released their upcoming 2022-23 schedule. The team is coming off of one of their best seasons in TCU history, so of course, success comes with excitement for not only the team but the whole Horned Frog family. The Frogs will compete in five fall and five spring tournaments, preparing them for the 2023 Big 12 Championship, which will be held April 21-23 at the Dallas Athletic Club. After regular season play concludes, postseason play will begin. NCAA Regionals will be played May 8-10, followed by the NCAA National Championships from May 19-24 at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The team's golf season is right around the corner as the team will head to Norman, Oklahoma, for the OU Sooner Classic on September 24-26. The Lady Horned Frogs will then head to Dublin, Ohio, where they will participate in the Barbara Nicklaus Cup on October 3-4. TCU then returns to the Midwest the following week to compete in the Illini Invitational from October 10-11, which takes place in Medinah, Illinois. The Horned Frogs will wrap up the fall season with the Jim West Invitational from October 23-24 in San Marcos, Texas, and then will go to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, to host the Battle of the Beach event, which the team will play on October 28-30.

After a short hiatus, the Frogs will return to action on January 23, when the team heads to Gold Canyon, Arizona., to compete in the Match in the Desert. TCU will then leave the country again, competing in the Nexus Women's Collegiate Classic from February 13-15 in Nassau, Bahamas. Finally, TCU has a single event in March that will be played March 17-19 in Tucson, Arizona, at the Mountain View Collegiate.

After returning from Tucson, the Frogs will head a few miles up I-35 to the Buzzy in Denton, Texas, with the tournament being played April 1-2. Then, finally, the Horned Frogs will wrap up the regular season with Big 12 Match Play in Scottsdale, Arizona, on April 3-6.

The women's golf team has had lots of success under Coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin going to the postseason 24 out of 26 seasons with her leading the team. This includes receiving a 21st place finish at the NCAA National Championships just a season ago. It marked the first NCAA Championship appearance for the Lady Horned Frogs since 2010. Along with a top-25 ranking, the program also saw 26 records in the 2021-22 campaign.

TCU looks to pick up right where they left off last season; they posted five top-four finishes in nine regular season events. In addition, horned Frogs Caitlyn Macnab and Sabrina Iqbal were named to the All-Big 12 Team. Macnab was also named the league's Freshman of the Year and earned the WGCA Honorable Mention All-American accolades. Coach Ravaioli-Larkin is set to begin her 29th season this season and welcome six letter-winners from last season's squad while adding a pair of talented incoming freshmen to the mix.

Coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin is excited to start the season, and she says, "I am so excited about our upcoming schedule this year. It is one of the most dynamic and best in the country, playing from east to west. We cannot wait to get the ball rolling."

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. – Judging from the crowds packing the stadium built beside this city’s pier, there’s no question about the popularity of pro beach volleyball – when there’s a beach.

But what about indoor matches in a desert far from the ocean?

The Association of Volleyball Professionals is about to find out. The AVP is returning to Phoenix in September after almost a 13-year absence.

The two days of competition at the Footprint Center in downtown Phoenix will feature the top four men’s and women’s teams from the tour’s Gold Series events, as well as two wild cards that will be added to the field.

“The AVP Phoenix Championships will be totally unique with all eyes focused on one court and the top six men’s teams and top six women’s teams battling it out to call themselves AVP champions,” Al Lau, CEO of the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour, said in a statement.

The AVP almost certainly will try to channel some of the mojo that it sees at its biggest event, the Manhattan Beach Gold Series Open, which began in 1960 and offers the tour’s largest prize purses, totaling $300,000.

Scott Buffington, an Arizonan now living in Southern California, hopes the AVP will catch on in the Grand Canyon State.

“I grew up in Arizona, and volleyball, especially mens, was never that big,” said Buffington, sporting a Sun Devils cap and T-shirt as he watched the Open one pleasant day in mid-August.

“You could find some pickup indoor and beach games, but it was never really organized. I think it’s amazing that beach volleyball is making its way to Phoenix. The more exposure the better.”

The Sept. 23-24 tournament in Phoenix also could be a homecoming for some players. Sarah Sponcil, who placed ninth with partner Kelly Claes in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, is hoping to qualify with her latest partner, Terese Cannon. Sponcil remembers going to an AVP event in Phoenix as a kid.

“I got my first volleyball signed at a Phoenix AVP tournament around 2008,” said Sponcil, who attended Veritas Prep in east Phoenix, “so it’s kind of wild to think that that was the last time it came out to Arizona.”

Now 26, Sponsil said she would love to battle for the championship before “friends and family that have followed my journey and to be able to play in front of them in the Footprint Center is the goal.”

Sponcil spoke of the challenges of growing up in Arizona, a sandy place where playing competitive volleyball in the sand isn’t common.

Sponcil was 6 when her parents started taking her and her sister to church leagues and pickup games around metro Phoenix. Two years later, she started to enter beach tournaments in Arizona on what passed for sand.

“Beach wasn’t huge, so if anything it was more like dirt,” she said of the court surface. “There was no real or formal training, so we just played and tried to get better.”

Sponcil and a partner at the time played in as many tournaments as possible, even those for teenagers as old as 18.

“It wasn’t until I came out to California when I was like 12 (or) 13 and I was like, ‘We need to know what real volleyball looks like.’”

Sponcil is one of the bigger names in the sport to hail from Arizona, but with the addition of the AVP Phoenix Championships, it’s possible that others will be inspired by the sport.

Phoenix is the 13th stop on AVP’s tour of 16 cities, which includes such inland cities as Denver, Atlanta, Chicago and Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Fans are confident beach volleyball is growing and gaining the traction it deserves.

“This is actually the first tournament we all came back to since we graduated college,” said Griffin Geller, 22, of Malibu, California, who had come to Manhattan Beach with some friends. “I honestly had no idea the AVP tournaments went anywhere else other than like beach cities, so the fact that they are spreading out to places like Arizona and Chicago is great.”

Exploring how the odds makers believe the Suns will perform this season

Media Day for the Phoenix Suns in on September 26 as the team prepares for training camp to begin. The preseason follows with their first game against the Los Angeles Lakers on October 5.

That’s right. Suns’ basketball is just around the corner.

For those readers who live in the state of Arizona, it has now been one year since online sports betting was made legal in the Grand Canyon State. What a year it has been, am I right? How many over/under point totals did you get right? How many times have you bet a point spread and nailed it? How many prop bets did you swing and a miss on?

Due to the fact that many jurisdictions still forbid it, not everyone may wager on sports using a smartphone app. Yet. Even if you can’t, it’s still a good idea to look at the odds and learn how the oddsmakers predict a team’s performance. Their primary concern is making money, and I swear someone has pulled a Marty McFly on us by having a Grays Sports Almanac and merely setting the lines based on that knowledge from the future.

If anyone sees a DeLorean in Vegas, please check for a Californian OUTATIME license plate.

We now know what the odds makers anticipate this Suns team to accomplish as they get ready for the start of the new season. There are several wagers available, ranging from victory totals to playoff odds, from winning the division to winning the championship. Let’s look at what Vegas predicts the Suns will do during the NBA season of 2022–2023.

Total Wins: 51.5

Phoenix has averaged 57.5 wins over the past two seasons, winning 64 last year and 51 the year prior. It’s understandable that the odds makers believe that Phoenix will not replicate last season’s win total. It was the best ever put forth by any Suns team in their 54-year history. Both seasons, Phoenix hit the over on their predicted win totals.

But why such a big drop off from last season? That may have something to do with the acquisitions/health status of the Los Angeles Clippers in the Pacific Division. The Clippers won 42 games last season, but with the the John Wall addition and return of Kawhi Leonard, the team has an over/under of 52.5 wins this season.

We should see some regression with Phoenix as the team focuses on how to peak in the playoffs rather than in the regular season. 51.5? I’ll take the over. 53-29 sounds like an achievable record for the Suns. And if you want to bet the exact win total, the 52-55 range is +245.

To Win the Pacific Division: +225

As mentioned above, the odds makers are a fan of what the Clipper project to be. Sprinkle in the defending NBA Champions in the Golden State Warriors, and the Pacific Division promises to be a challenging division. The Suns have the third best odds to win the division, although their odds aren’t horrible at +225.

The talent is there for Phoenix. They have the experience. They have the know how, the chemistry, and the depth to accomplish the mission of winning the Pacific for the third consecutive season. The next question is if the Suns have listed this objective among their goals for the current season.

The team burned themselves out early attempting to accomplish numerous micro-tasks last season, ultimately falling short in their pursuit of their primary goal: a championship.

To Win the Western Conference: +500

This too is the third best odds in the conference, behind the Clippers (+330) and the Warriors (+340). The Lakers (+750) come in fourth, which means that the odds makers see the Pacific as the toughest division in the NBA.

Should one of these four teams wins the West, it would be the ninth consecutive time a team from the Pacific Division represented the Western Conference in the NBA Finals. The last time a team that wasn’t from the Pacific was in the Finals? The 2013-14 San Antonio Spurs.

To Win the NBA Finals: +1200

Like a 1966 hit song from the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds album, wouldn't it be nice?

Phoenix finds themselves with the sixth-best odds to win a title this season, trailing the Boston Celtics (+550), Clippers (+600), Warriors (+600), Brooklyn Nets (+700), and Milwaukee Bucks (+800).

These aren’t the greatest odds, but this is most likely the bet the majority of casual Suns fans will make. I know my mother always puts money on Phoenix-based sports teams the win their respective championship each year (she goes to Laughlin on the reg and has been making these bets for years). I now know why I have no inheritance coming my way.

Another fun filled season lies before us and Phoenix finds themselves with an opportunity to win it all. It's not every year you're one of the top six teams relative to the odds to win the title. Let's hope they can capitalize on this momentum that they've built over the past two seasons, put together a true revenge tour, and avenge their pitiful performance in Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals last season against the Dallas Mavericks. That motivating factor could ultimately lead to a title.

And that's something I will bet on.
