    Here's what's coming up in Cincinnati sports:

  • Three student-athletes will represent Cincinnati at the NCAA Track & Field Championships June 8-11 at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Senior Eric Finan (5,000 meters) and juniors Terrence Somerville (110 meter hurdles) and Kathy Klump (800 meters) advanced to the finals after strong showings at the NCAA East Regional meet.

    Bearcats and the Community:

  • The men's basketball program invites you to the 2011 Mick Cronin Basketball Camps starting in June. Camp 1 will be June 13-16, grades 2-10, Camp 2 will be June 27-30, grades 2-10, and Camp 3 will be August 1-4, grades 2-10 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The cost is $200.

High School Team Shootouts will take place June 20 and June 21 and the Individual Basketball Skills Camp will be June 22 to June 24 for grades 4-12. Each camper will eat lunch in the campus cafeteria and receive a camp T-shirt. Camp will be in session from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. (Wed/Thur/Fri). Campers have an option to stay for Open Gym from 4:00 p.m.-5:30 p.m. for an additional $10 per camper for each day.
  • The women's soccer team will host the 2011 Bearcats Soccer Academy, which provides youth soccer players the opportunity to receive hands-on training from Head Coach Michelle Salmon and her coaching staff.

    In case you missed it:

  • The baseball team dropped an 8-3 decision to St. John's last Wednesday in their first game of the BIG EAST Championship in Clearwater, Fla. The Bearcats then ended their season when they fell 5-3 to Louisville last Thursday in the elimination game. Cincinnati ended the season 30-27 (14-13 BIG EAST).
  • For the track and field team, senior Eric Finan and juniors Terrence Somerville and Kathy Klump each advanced to the NCAA Track and Field finals last weekend at the East Region preliminaries at the Robert C. Haugh Track and Field Complex.
