SKIING

AUSTRIA: Rosina Schneeberger will be out for at least six months after undergoing knee surgery following a crash in Saturday’s World Cup slalom.

Schneeberger, 20, is Austria’s national super-G champion.

SOCCER

ENGLAND: Queens Park Rangers accepted a misconduct charge for failing to control its players during a Premier League match against Manchester City.

Several QPR players had surrounded referee Mike Dean to question his decision to disallow striker Charlie Austin’s goal after Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart had taken two touches to clear the ball with a free kick.

Queen’s Park had twice led against the defending champions before a late strike saw the game finish 2-2.

YOUTH BASEBALL

LITTLE LEAGUE: A memoir when you’re still a teenager may seem premature, but not for Mo’ne Davis, the first female pitcher to win a Little League World Series game.

“Mo’ne Davis: Remember My Name” will be released next March by HarperCollins Children’s Books.

The honor-roll student from Philadelphia became a sensation last summer after leading the Taney Dragons to a 4-0 victory over Nashville, when she was just 13.

She has since appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated and thrown out the first pitch at the World Series.
