Broadcast plans: Lageschulte has been preparing for this job most of his life

first_imgWhen Mike Lageschulte was named last month as the new “Voice of the Utes,” it left a few Ute fans scratching their heads.Many knew of Lageschulte because he has served in the school’s sports information office for more than a decade, including the past eight years in charge of men’s basketball.But the appointment left a few questions.Does Lageschulte have the proper background in University of Utah athletics?Does he have the appropriate radio voice for the job?Does he have any radio experience whatsoever?The answers are yes, yes and yes.For Lageschulte, getting the Ute radio play-by-play job fulfills a life’s dream that started back in a small Iowa town when he did mock broadcasts in small stadiums he created.”I’ve wanted to be a broadcaster since I was about 9 years old,” he said. “Timing’s everything, and I just happened to be in the right spot for this.”The official title for his new job, which begins next month, is director of publications and broadcasting.Besides doing play-by-play for men’s basketball and football, Lageschulte will produce the football media guide and women’s basketball guide, game-day programs for football and men’s basketball and help keep the athletic department’s Web site updated.”Mike is very talented and very good at play-by-play,” said U. director of athletics Chris Hill. “He’s a valued employee and it’s something he’s always wanted to do. Everything lined up just right. We think he’ll do an excellent job.”Lageschulte grew up in the small town of Plainfield, Iowa, where the population is 500 and the number of stoplights is zero.”A little like Mayberry,” he said.He was a big Iowa Hawkeyes fan and used to listen to the various broadcasts (believe it or not, three main stations did regular broadcasts of the Hawkeyes) as well as broadcasts of Chicago sports teams.”I was always looking for ballgames on the radio or TV,” he said.Lageschulte would build mini-stadiums and “do play-by-plays of the make-believe games.”He had a close friend with muscular dystrophy who died when the two were in high school. When they were younger, the two of them would “mess around and have pretend talk shows,” said Lageschulte.Sometimes they would turn the sound down on the TV and do their own play-by-play.”It was good practice,” Lageschulte said. “By the time I got to college, I had a lot of the rough edges worn off.”However, when he started at the University of Iowa, he found there were a hundred other guys who wanted to do the same thing.Figuring the odds weren’t in his favor, Lageschulte decided to pursue sports information with the idea of eventually getting into broadcasting.However, while working in the sports information office at Iowa, Lageschulte was able to get some experience doing play-by-play for the baseball team and women’s basketball team.He was hired at Utah in the summer of 1995 and started off working with volleyball, basketball and softball.One morning, he walked into sport information director Liz Abel’s office, and Hill turned and said, “You sound like you should be on the radio.”Lageschulte was happy to tell his boss that he used to do broadcasting in college and added he would be interested in doing some radio sometime. He sent some tapes to KALL Radio and ended up working several women’s basketball games his first couple of years on the job.During the 1997-98 season, he did more than half of the U. women’s games and filled in for Bill Marcroft on occasion over the next few years when there were conflicts between basketball and football. He also filled in on KJZZ-TV for a couple of games at Wyoming and Colorado State in 2004.When Utah Sports Properties took over earlier this year as the multimedia rights holder for Ute athletics, Lageschulte was a natural choice.Lageschulte lists the 1998 Final Four and 2004 Fiesta Bowl as two of his bigger highlights working in the sports information office. But the 2004-05 basketball season was his biggest highlight because of his personal involvement.”The Sweet 16 year was awesome,” he said. “We were nationally ranked the second half of the year, and I worked closely with Andrew Bogut. He ended up as consensus player of the year. To see it work out the way it did was pretty gratifying.”So which announcers have had the biggest influence on Lageschulte?He enjoyed Jack Brickhouse, the former Chicago Cubs announcer, and loved Jim Zabel, one of Iowa’s play-by-play announcers.”I listened to him every Saturday, and it sounded like the press box booth was the place to be. He had fun, was entertaining, got excited and made the game seem like it was a can’t-miss type of thing.”On a national basis, his favorite has been Dick Enberg.”He can do everything — baseball, football, basketball, track and field. … He’s the guy I always tried to pattern myself after. He had such enthusiasm and was always knowledgeable, prepared and had fun with it.”The 36-year-old Lageschulte recently got engaged to Becky Pugmire, and the couple are planning a wedding in June of 2008. He says he loves living in Utah and would like to bring some stability to his new job after three Ute announcers in the past four years. “It’s the kind of job I’ve always wanted, and now I’ve got it,” he said. “This is what I see myself doing long term. I could be here until I retire. I plan on doing this for a long time.” E-mail: sor@desnews.comlast_img read more

Utah Jazz: Gordon Hayward, not LeBron James, is go-to guy down the stretch in big Jazz win

first_imgPost game interview following the Jazz’s victory over Miami. Utah Jazz: Twitter fans credit the win over Miami to Gordon Hayward’s clutch shooting Utah Jazz report card: Gordon Hayward, Al Jefferson lead Jazz to big win over Miami Related Utah Jazz notebook: Utah takes great pride in its reputation for being a physical team Miami still knows how to turn up the Heat Post game interview of LeBron James after the Heat’s loss to the Jazz.center_img SALT LAKE CITY — Down the stretch of a tight game between the defending world champion Miami Heat and the Utah Jazz, you’d expect that LeBron James would be the go-to guy, not Gordon Hayward.Gordon Hayward?While James was pretty invisible over the final frantic minutes of another Jazz near-meltdown, the third-year Jazz player was the man for the Jazz, scoring 10 of his team’s final 14 points when no one else could make a basket.“I was just trying to make plays and make shots,’’ said the soft-spoken Hayward. “They did a good job defensively of taking us out of what we wanted to do — finding Big Al (Jefferson) and Paul (Millsap) and making things really difficult for us. I just tried to create something for us.’’The Jazz had seen a 21-point, second-half lead dwindle to just five with just under five minutes remaining and hadn’t scored a field goal in over six minutes. That’s when Hayward calmly broke the drought by draining a 3-pointer from the top of the key.The Heat responded with six straight points to make it a two-point game with 3:32 left when Hayward again came up big, scoring a baseline jumper on a goaltending call by James.His biggest basket, however, came with 40 seconds left and the Jazz clinging to a 98-93 lead.Jamaal Tinsley had just missed a 3-pointer and Millsap chased down the rebound. With the shot clock winding down and veteran Ray Allen guarding him, Hayward was on the right side. He surged like he was going down the lane, but slowed and dribbled the ball behind his back. Then he stepped back and fired a fadeaway jumper from the foul line.The shot hit nothing but net and for all intents sewed up the game right there for the Jazz, who added two more free throws by Hayward and two by Jefferson in the final 23 seconds.“I just made a move to try to make something happen,’’ Hayward said. “It was something I worked on this summer and it went in.’’Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin, who praised Millsap for getting the big rebound before Hayward’s shot, said, “We needed to make one — Gordon’s shot went in and it gave us a little sigh of relief.’’Corbin said he isn’t hesitant to have Hayward taking the big shots in tight situations against great teams like Miami.“He can make plays off the dribble,’’ he said. “We couldn’t get it inside to Al, but (Hayward) can make plays on the weak side or come across and make a play for himself or his teammates and he made some shots tonight.’’Hayward was also a key player in the second quarter when the Jazz bench helped stake Utah to a 59-44 halftime lead. The Jazz bench scored 33 points on 14-of-16 shooting in the first half compared to five points for the Heat bench. Both Hayward and DeMarre Carroll each scored 12 points in the first half, while Derrick Favors added seven.“When we’ve got everybody rolling, we’re pretty good,’’ Hayward said. “We’re trying to learn to push the lead from 20 to 30. We need to continue to put our foot on the gas and not be hesitant.’’ Utah Jazz instant analysis: Gordon Hayward was the best player on the court in big win over Miami Utah Jazz fend off a Miami Heat late run, beat world champions 104-97 Utah Jazz basketball: Jazz shoot nearly 70 percent, up on Miami Heat at halftime Utah Jazz: Beehive State can breathe again after Jazz hold off Heat, 104-97last_img read more

Tony Finau makes his birdies, but too many bogeys leave him with fifth-place finish at U.S. Open

first_img Who is Tony Finau? Here’s the story of his unlikely journey to golf’s grandest stage Tony Finau makes giant leap up U.S. Open leaderboard from 45th place to tie for the lead Tony Finau made enough birdies to win the U.S. Open Sunday, but too many bogeys kept the Utah native from capturing a major championship.Finau, who went into the final round tied for the lead, playing in the final group with Daniel Berger, shot a 2-over-par 72 to finish at 285 in fifth place, four strokes behind winner Brooks Koepka. It marked the best U.S. Open finish by a Utah native since Jay Don Blake tied for sixth at Pebble Beach in 1992 and followed Finau’s tie for 10th at the Masters in April.The 28-year-old Lehi resident made five birdies at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, but also had five bogeys and finished on a sour note with a double-bogey on the final hole, which dropped him from a tie for third place. For the week, he led all golfers in the tournament in birdies with 17, but needed to avoid the over-par scores that included four double bogeys and 14 bogeys.After getting off to another slow start as he had the previous day before rallying, Finau made three straight bogeys out of the gates at holes 2, 3 and 4. Then he made birdies at three of the next five holes, while also making a bogey at No. 7. So he made the turn at 1-over on the day with just two pars on the front nine.At the par-3 11th, Finau rolled in a 27-foot birdie putt to get within two of the lead, but fell back at the next hole when he three-putted for a bogey. After his 25-foot putt went past the hole, he missed a 4-foot putt coming back.But he rebounded at the next hole with a marvelous approach shot that ended up 18 inches from the hole for a tap-in birdie, again putting him within two shots of the lead. At No. 15, he had a chance to get to 2-over, but his 10-footer slid past the hole on the left side.Finau still had a chance to tie Koepka with a couple of more birdies, but missed long putts at 16 and 17 before getting into trouble at No. 18 with an errant tee shot.Finau was in 45th place after two rounds, but climbed to the top of the leaderboard with 4-under-par 66 in Saturday’s third round as leading golfers struggled on a windy, dry afternoon.Before the round, Finau said, “I’m going to go enjoy myself today — it’s the first time I’ve been in this situation before. I’m playing some good golf and I’ll try to stay in the moment and we’ll see what happens after 18 holes.”Finau will move on to play in the Open Championship at Carnoustie, Scotland, next month and is also scheduled to play at the PGA Championship in August, marking the first year he will have played in all four majors.Finau was trying to become the first player with local ties to win a U.S. Open since ex-BYU golfer Johnny Miller won in 1973 at Oakmont, Pennsylvania. Finau was the first local player to play in the final group at a U.S. Open since Keith Clearwater, who was paired with Tom Watson in 1987 after shooting a third-round 64. However, the 27-year-old BYU grad struggled in the final round and shot 79 to finish in a tie for 31st place.

Tony Finau has plenty of birdies, but finishes well back in PGA Championship

first_img Tony Finau gets passed on moving day, but is still in contention at Open Championship Utah’s Tony Finau is off to a hot start at dry British Open with 4-under-par 67 Related Finau overcomes back spasms before Friday’s round in Scotland Tony Finau in contention at Open Championship after second-round 71 leaves him 2 off the lead Finau would welcome some windy conditions for Sunday’s final round in Scotland Molinari survives wild day to win British Open Usually 24 birdies in four rounds, which is the number Tony Finau had at the PGA Championship, would be enough to win the tournament. In fact, Finau had more birdies than any player in the field for the week and even had two more than winner Brooks Koepka did at this week’s major at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis.However, too many bogeys along with a couple of double bogeys and a triple bogey earlier in the week left Finau well back of the winner, 13 strokes to be exact.Finau finished in a tie for 42nd, his lowest finish at a major since last year’s PGA when he came in a tie for 44th place.After a shaky start to the week, Finau finished strong with three birdies on his last five holes to finish in the 60s for the third straight day with a 68 for 3-under-par 277 total.For his final three birdies, Finau made a 13-foot putt at No. 14, a 9-footer at No. 15 and a 33-footer at No. 18.Finau ended up playing the four majors in 9-under-par, which tied for third place among golfers who made the cut in the Masters, U.S. Open, British Open and PGA, behind Justin Rose (12-under) and Rickie Fowler (11-under).

Can Zach Wilson pull a Scott Mitchell and lead his team to an upset victory this week?

first_img Laura Seitz, Deseret News BYU’s Zach Wilson passes during the Blue-White Game at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo on Saturday, April 7, 2018. Certainly, although I don’t foresee a 29-point victory for the Cougars if they are able to win. Wilson has already shown he’s not afraid of the big bad Utes as he led the Cougars to a near-upset last year at Rice-Eccles Stadium, when the Cougars led by 20 points before folding like a cheap lawn chair and losing by eight. As similar as the scenario of a sophomore-quarterback-who-grew-up-a-fan-of-the-other-school-in-the-rivalry-engineering-a-big-upset is, there are a few differences to consider between 31 years ago and today.— Back in 1988, the Utah-BYU game was played in the final game of the season as it always was back then, not the first. In fact, this is the first time the two rivals have ever met in the opening game.— BYU came into the 1988 game as an 11-point favorite, while Utah is a 5-point favorite according to the latest betting lines. However, it might seem like the Utes are bigger favorites, considering some experts are putting the Utes in the College Football Playoff this year (see Lee Corso’s recent prediction on ESPN Gameday).— Utah caught BYU by surprise in 1988. The Cougars came into that game 8-2 and already headed to the Freedom Bowl, while the Utes were a mediocre 5-5 and going nowhere, coming into the game just 3-4 in the Western Athletic Conference. Even some Y. players from back then have acknowledged they may have taken the game too lightly.— This time around, the favored team seems pretty focused on the big game. The Utes aren’t about to let the Cougars sneak up on them as they did last year in Salt Lake. The Cougars’ nine-game winning streak between 1979 and 1987 was the longest for BYU in series history. They won one game by 50, another by 48 and the average score during that streak was 37-14.Utah had its own nine-game winning streak between 1929 and 1937. During that time, the Utes outscored the Cougars by an astonishing 279-20, with six shutouts and an average score of 31-3. Utah also has the longest non-losing streak in the series, going 20 years without a loss from 1922 to 1941 with three ties to go along with 17 wins (for those under 25, yes, there were ties in football before the rules were changed in 1996 to play until a winner is determined).On the other hand, BYU still has the most wins in a two-decade span, winning 19 of 21 games between 1972 and 1992 with the only losses coming in 1978 (Randy Gomez-to-Frank Henry) and 1988. While the Utes can extend the streak to 10 years with a win Thursday, it would make nine straight victories because the two teams didn’t play in 2014 when the Utes took a two-year hiatus from the series to play a home-and-home with Michigan (the rivals played in 2015 in the Las Vegas Bowl).Wilson, who was only 9 years old the last time BYU defeated its rival to the north, may just be the guy to help break a long drought just like Mitchell did 31 years ago.We’ll find out Thursday night.center_img SALT LAKE CITY — Back in 1988, BYU came into its annual game with Utah as a big favorite, having won nine straight games against its rivals over the previous decade, only to see a sophomore quarterback who grew up rooting for the Cougars engineer a stunning upset in front of his home crowd.That was Scott Mitchell, who played just down the road from BYU at Springville High School, and he led Utah to the 57-28 thrashing of the Cougars at what was then called Rice Stadium.Fast forward 31 years and we have an eerily similar scenario unfolding as the Utes and Cougars set up to do battle Thursday night.This time, it’s sophomore quarterback Zach Wilson, who grew up a Ute fan (his dad played for Utah) playing at Corner Canyon High School in Salt Lake County, who will be trying to lead BYU to an upset victory in front of a home crowd at LaVell Edwards Stadium. Like Mitchell, he’s also trying to break a decade-long losing streak for his team.Could history repeat itself only in a reverse situation?last_img read more

Sports today: 48 runs were scored in Worden on Monday; golfers head to Hesston; Oxford takes 2 against Sedan

first_imgAvery Rusk of Wellington scores a run against Circle. There were a lot of runs scored on Monday.by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The wind blew while the softball scores blew up in Worden Park Monday afternoon. Circle swept the Wellington girls softball team 12-0 and 21-13 to promptly end the Crusaders four-game winning streak and drop the team to 6-8. In other news, the WHS golf team traveled to Hesston for a 36-hole golf tournament, the Oxford baseball team got back on the diamond and swept Sedan and the Wellington tennis team had its league tournament in Wichita. Monday’s games may have looked more like something from a summer slow pitch softball contest. The wind came directly from southwest and sent the balls sailing. It didn’t help that Circle had some sluggers. The Thunderbirds combined for 41 hits — 15 hits in game one and 26 in game two. Wellington had four hits in game one and 17 in game two.

The Wildcats defeated Sedan 9-5 and 8-7. Oxford head coach Kyle Green said about the double-header:Both these games could have gone either way. Sedan is a solid ball club, which we knew they would be, Coach Chrisman has done a great job with them as he always does. We had to grind out a win in game 1 after trailing 4-3 most of the ball game. Dakota Mitchell threw very well for us, Dalton and Cal Shimkus did a great job out of the pen following him. Dalton picked up the win after we got the bats going late. It was a gut check win for us.Game 2 we were in control until the sixth. Camren Clements got the start and I felt like he was really dominant. Had we not had games vs. West Elk Thursday we would have rode him longer. He had his really really good stuff last night. Cal did okay out of the pen, Dalton came in and got the save late. Dalton getting the win in game 1 and the save in game 2 was a gut check performance for him. We won’t have him Thursday due to pitch counts, but I felt like we needed to roll the dice in game 2 and get the sweep to keep us tied with West Elk in WJL play. Overall in both games, I felt like we got some big time timely hitting from several kids and we had great AB’s last in both games.The statistics for the double-header are as follows:Game 1- Oxford 9 Sedan 5Team                                      R    H    EOxford    1  1  0  1  0  3  3      9     7    1Sedan    1   3  0  0  0  1  0      5    6    4Starter: Dakota Mitchell4 IP, 4 R, 3 ER, 6 K’s, 1 BB, 1 HBP, 4 hitsWP-Dalton Silhan (4-1) 2 2/3, 4 K’s, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 2 HitsApp: Cal Shimkus IP 1/3Offense Highlights:Cal Shimkus 3-5, 3 1B, 2 ROE, 2 SB, 1 R, 4 RBI’sDalton Silhan 2-5, 2 1B, 2 SB, 1 RBIHenry Carter 1-3, 1 3B, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 SBGame 2- Oxford 8 Sedan 7Team                                        R    H    EOxford    2  2  0  0  1  0  3        8    11    3Sedan    0  0  0  0   0  3  4       7     7     2WP: Camren Clements (5-1), 4 IP, 7 K’s, 1 BB, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 Hit App: Cal Shimkus 1 1/3, 0 K, 1 BB, 3 R, 1 ER, 2 Hits.

It’s going to be great baseball on Thursday in Oxford. Almost post-season like.We get done playing one WJL legend in Rick Chrisman at Sedan, and now we get another WJL legend in Dana Taliaferro at West Elk. Two guys who have done it for a very long time at high level in our league. We will have to be ready to go Thursday if want to get some wins. Dana will have them ready to play fundamentally solid baseball no question. We are now 13-2 overall, 10-2 in WJL. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!
