Westbrook High junior Nyagoa Bayak finished second in the high jump at the New Balance High School Outdoor Nationals in Greensboro, North Carolina on Sunday.

Bayak cleared 5 feet, 101/2 inches on her second attempt. Shelby Tyler (Indiana) also cleared 5-101/2, as did third-place finisher Kenya Livingston (North Carolina) and fourth-place finisher Thea Shaw (Washington, D.C.). Tyler won because she had the fewest misses during competition.

Bayak won the New England title last week, matching her own state record with a leap of 5-11.


EASTERN LEAGUE: Chad De La Guerra hit a two-run homer to spark a five-run first inning, and the Portland Sea Dogs (26-41) held on for a 5-3 victory over the Bowie Baysox (29-37) to complete a three-game sweep at Bowie, Maryland.

Luke Tendler added a bases-loaded single, scoring two, and Austin Rei followed with a sacrifice fly to help the Sea Dogs win their fourth straight game.

Portland starter Matt Kent (4-4) allowed one run on three hits in six innings.

De La Guerra, Tendler and Danny Mars each had two hits for the Sea Dogs.

AMERICAN LEGION: Dylan Francoeur hit a two-run triple in the third, and Coastal Landscape (2-0) held on for a 3-1 win over Staples Crossing (0-1) in a Zone 3 game at South Berwick.

Francoeur also earned the win, allowing a run on three hits while striking out seven in six innings.

Hunter Sawtelle hit an RBI double in the fourth for Staples Crossing.


STUTTGART OPEN: Roger Federer beat Milos Raonic 6-4, 7-6 (3) to mark his return from three months off by winning the title at Stuttgart, Germany.

The Swiss great, who is assured of reclaiming the No. 1 ranking from Rafael Nadal on Monday, broke at 1-1 in the opening set and held his nerve in the second, where Raonic double-faulted.

Federer skipped the entire clay-court season for the second year in a row, but he wrapped up his 18th grass-court title in 1 hour, 18 minutes – his 98th title overall and third of the season.

NOTTINGHAM OPEN: Johanna Konta failed to shake the umpire’s hand after a bad-tempered end to the final, with Ashleigh Barty winning 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 at Nottingham, England.

Konta recovered from 4-1 down in the decider to level at 4-4 but got angry with umpire Paula Vieira Souza for not overruling a Barty shot that looked long as the top-seeded Australian held for 5-4.
