Rifle’s Luke Antonelli defeated Pat Bowe 5 and 4 Tuesday to advance to the round of 32 at the 105th Colorado Golf Association State Match Play Championships.

Antonelli, the 2002 CGA Junior Stroke Play champion, tied for second place in Monday’s qualifying round at Bear Creek Golf Club.

On Tuesday, the Rifle High graduate was bolstered by three straight birdies on six, seven and eight. He carded five birdies, seven pars, a bogey and a double-bogey over 14 holes.

Antonelli, the fifth seed, takes on No. 37-seed Rick DeWitt this morning in the second round. Winners advance to third-round play in the afternoon.

Holly Binnian was one of three Parachute riders who won their divisions in the Tri-State Classic and NBHA Colorado-10 barrel races Sunday in Craig.

Binnian, in just her second year of NBHA competition, won the Open 4D division. She also stayed in the hunt for a year-end saddle by picking up five points toward overall standings.

Rylie Gardner, the 2004 Youth 4D champion, needed to borrow a horse but still took top honors in the division. Mary Satterfield completed the Parachute hat trick with a victory in the Senior 2D division.

The next NBHA CO-10 is Friday at the Garfield County Fairgrounds indoor arena in Rifle. Exhibitions begin at 5 p.m., and the Open starts at 7 p.m.

Registration is open for the Rick Upchurch Rare Breed football camp. The camp, which will have seven former NFL players coaching, is open to players entering third through eighth grades in the fall. It is scheduled to run Aug. 4-6 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Glenwood Springs High School. Lunch is provided.

The fee is $75 per player and scholarships are available.

Information and registration: Scott Zerfoss, 945-0318.

Free sports physicals will take place later this month for athletes at Rifle and Coal Ridge high schools, and Rifle and Riverside middle schools.

The girls physicals will be from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, July 20, and the boys physicals are the same time Thursday, July 21, at Grand River Primary Care in Rifle.

Athletes are asked to bring their physical forms, available at Rifle or Coal Ridge high schools, to the physicals.

To offset cost of summer instructional camp, the Roaring Fork High School cheerleading squad will serve as waiters and waitresses at White House Pizza in Carbondale from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday.

A portion of the income from the event, along with all tips, will benefit the cheerleaders. As part of the event, diners can purchase raffle tickets.

Raffle prizes include four tickets to a Colorado Rockies baseball game, and 2005-06 season family passes to Roaring Fork High School athletic events.
