    MINOT, ND - With teams preparing for the fall sports season, Stanley High School announced today that they will not have a varsity football team this year. Activities Director Brooks Stafslien says in a press release that due to a lack of participation they are not able to sustain consistent numbers large enough to compete at the varsity level. He says that Stanley will be competing as a junior varsity football team for the 2019 season and that all varsity games have been forfeited. Due to realignment which the North Dakota High School Activites Association does every two years, Stanley was schedule to move up from Class A 11-Man to Class AA 11-Man this fall.

     MLB-SCHEDULE

     UNDATED (AP) - Jose Ramirez, Francisco Lindor and the Indians own the majors' best record since early June, going 43-19 while whittling away an 11 1/2-game deficit in the AL Central. Now, Yasiel Puig and his new teammates are set to spend more than a week in New York, starting with a four-game series at Yankee Stadium. Adam Plutko pitches today's opener, taking on a big-hitting Yankees team that has the best record in the majors and has won five in a row.

     After taking on Gleyber Torres, Aaron Judge and the Yanks, the Indians move across town for a three-game set vs. the Mets and their talented rotation. Cleveland has never played at Citi Field - its only trip to face the Mets was in 2004 at Shea Stadium.

     NBA-NEWS-COUSINS

     EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - A person with knowledge of the situation says Los Angeles Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins is undergoing tests to confirm a preliminary diagnosis of a ligament tear in his knee. The person who spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press says Cousins was injured in a workout in Las Vegas this week. It could be the latest major blow for Cousins, who has torn an Achilles and a quad as well in the last 18 months.

     If the fears are confirmed, Cousins would almost certainly miss much - if not all - of the coming season. And his run of amazingly bad luck, costing him a lot of games and an enormous amount of money, would continue as well.

     He tore his Achilles in February 2018, a few months before he could have commanded a massive contract in free agency. He wound up signing with Golden State for the relatively low price of $5.3 million, sat out much of last season while rehabbing the Achilles, and then was sidelined again for much of the Warriors' playoff run after tearing a quad muscle.

     COLLEGE FOOTBALL-GEORGIA TECH-JOHNSON

     ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech quarterback Lucas Johnson has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA. Johnson can play three more college seasons after seeing action in just one of his first three seasons. He was redshirted in 2016 and missed all of last season with a foot injury. He appears likely to be the starter when Georgia Tech opens the season August 29th at defending national champion Clemson. The NCAA's decision was similar to the one in late July that gave linebacker David Curry a sixth year. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining.

     TENNIS-KYRGIOS FINED

     MASON, Ohio (AP) - Nick Kyrgios has been fined $113,000 by the ATP after his second-round match at the Western & Southern Open. The tour announced the penalties a day after Kyrgios insulted chair umpire Fergus Murphy and left the court to smash two rackets during a three-set loss to Karen Khachanov. The ATP adds that it is looking further into what happened to determine if more discipline is warranted.

     Kyrgios is a 24-year-old Australian who is ranked 27th this week. He has repeatedly has gotten in trouble for on-court actions, including getting kicked out of the Italian Open in May after throwing a chair and being suspended by the ATP in 2016 for not trying to win and insulting fans during the Shanghai Masters.

     Earlier this month, Kyrgios won the Citi Open title in Washington and said he had turned a page in his professional and personal life.
