Amber Campbell’s track and field career could be down to just three events. The Coastal Carolina alumna finished fourth in the women’s hammer throw (241 feet, 5 inches) Sunday at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Oregon, coming up short of landing a spot with Team USA for the IAAF World Championships later this summer. The top three make the U.S. squad and will represent the country at the World Championships in August in London. Gwen Berry (245-3) won the event and will be joined by Maggie Ewen (244-7) and Deanna Price (243-0) on the U.S. squad.

Of the five members of the 2016 Coastal Carolina football team who were invited as undrafted free agents to three-day NFL rookie mini-camps in early May, only linebacker Alex Scearce has made a 90-man roster. Scearce has signed a three-year contract and made the 90-man roster of the Chicago Bears, which means he'll join the team for training camp next month and will likely be on the team at least through preseason. "It's a great opportunity and a great experience," Scearce said. "They have some veteran guys in front of me at the inside linebacker position so I've really got to bust it. There are a lot of people who wish they were in the spot I'm in now."

Onetime local rocker returns to ComFest with new essay collection and forthcoming book on Ryan Adams Years ago, a Watershed performance at ComFest wouldn’t have been all that unusual. Whether cradling a Fish Boat sandwich and Skittle-colored beer mug at the annual Party with a Purpose or raising rawk hands at any number of sticky-floored venues around town, fans could catch sets by the beloved local power-pop act on the regular. Watershed never stopped rocking, but ever since bassist/co-vocalist Joe Oestreich skipped town to pursue a writing career several years ago, live shows have been few and far between. On Saturday, though, for the first time since 2006, Oestreich and guitarist/co-vocalist Colin Gawel, alongside guitarist Rick Kinsinger and original drummer Herb Schupp, will perform on ComFest’s main stage. “I would be incredibly fired up just to go to ComFest this year,” said Oestreich by phone from Conway, South Carolina, where he teaches creative writing at Coastal Carolina University. “The fact that Watershed gets to play, and that we get to play sandwiched between the Floorwalkers and Willie Phoenix, our hero — that just seems like a gift from the gods.”
