TULSA, Okla. (AP) - An Oral Roberts University coach helped start a track and field camp this summer at the Marion Jones Sport Complex in Belize. ORU assistant track and field coach Shawn Venable partnered with the Belize Athletic Association to host the free camp that drew more than 40 athletes. The attendees worked on everything from general strength exercises to fine tuning their skills.

WEATHERFORD, Okla. (AP) - The Southwestern Oklahoma State University's women's cross country team is tied for seventh place in the Great American Conference preseason poll. The school is tied with Southern Nazarene University for seventh place. The preseason choice is the same spot where SWOSU finished at the GAC Championships in 2013.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - J.P. Arencibia had a tiebreaking two-run single for the Texas Rangers in a 4-2 victory over the New York Yankees last night. Brett Gardner homered twice and Derek Jeter had three hits off Yu Darvish. Darvish threw 80 of his 108 pitches for strikes five days after losing a rain-shortened game in New York.

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Morris Claiborne got on Terrance Williams' nerves the minute the competition started at training camp for the Dallas Cowboys. The third-year cornerback pulled and grabbed the receiver aggressively enough to prompt a heated, facemask-to-facemask exchange that ended with a shove. Claiborne says he's ready to prove he's worthy of Dallas' dramatic move up the draft board to get him with the sixth overall pick in 2012.
