Pringle Nears 2,000-Yard Mark

October 24, 1998

Montreal running back Mike Pringle, a former Kennedy High and Cal State Fullerton standout, will likely become the first player in Canadian Football League history to rush for 2,000 yards in a season when the Alouettes host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Sunday.

Pringle enters the game with a league-leading 1,962 yards. He rushed for a CFL-record 1,972 yards in 1994 for the Baltimore Stallions, who moved to Montreal in 1996. The original Montreal Alouettes folded after the 1986 season.

Only four professional players have eclipsed 2,000 yards rushing in a season--O.J. Simpson, Eric Dickerson and Barry Sanders in the NFL and Herschel Walker in the USFL.

BASKETBALL

Senior forward Amy Feola of Burroughs High will miss the girls' basketball season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament during a fall league game.

Tiffany Winkfield, an All-Golden League forward at Highland High last season, has transferred to Desert Winds High in Lancaster. Winkfield averaged 11.6 points and 7.1 rebounds as a junior, when she helped lead the Bulldogs to their first postseason berth.

SOFTBALL

Alemany High softball player Meghann Reiss has committed to Wisconsin.

Reiss, an ASA 18-and-under all-national team selection last summer, was All-Southern Section after batting .441 with 21 runs batted in as a junior at Alemany.
