Cleaning up

September 2, 2009 1 Comment

Here are a few items of note as we get set for another busy weekend on the local sports scene:

Hawks helping out

Members of the Quincy University men’s basketball team will participate in Thursday’s Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk at Clat Adams Park in Quincy.

QU head coach Marty Bell and his players are walking in honor of former QU coach John Ortwerth. Ortwerth is the Hawks’ winningest coach, compiling a 259-173 mark from 1960-75. He was inducted into the QU Hall of Fame in 1978.

The walk starts at 6 p.m. Click here for more information.

Kinney will wait

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the St. Louis Cardinals will wait until the Memphis Redbirds’ season is over until they call up players to big-league team. That means former QU pitcher Josh Kinney will have to wait until next week at the earliest before he gets the chance to rejoin the team.

Kinney struggled during his time with the parent club this season. He won his first big-league game, but posted a 10.95 ERA in 15 appearances. He’s been much more consistent at Memphis. He’s 3-2 with a 3.85 ERA, striking out 49 batters in 42 innings.

QU football game to be televised

Those of you wanting to see if the Quincy University football team can beat a Football Championship Subdivision team on Thursday won’t need to make the four-hour drive to Cape Girardeau, Mo.

The folks at KFVS will broadcast the game at Southeast Missouri State for free on their Web site. Just go to the station’s Web site. Game time is 6 p.m.

You can also listen to WGEM’s call of the game at

    Will there be commentary of goose dropping during the QU/SEMO game?
