Tennis Penn closes career chapter

Josh Pompan capped a remarkable collegiate tennis career at the University of Pennsylvania with 96 wins, the most wins by a player in the program in 12 years.

During his four years at the Ivy League school, Pompan was named the team’s Most Valuable Player, was a two-time team captain and was voted the most inspirational player three times.

Having graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Wharton School at Penn, the York School graduate was a second team all-Ivy Leaguer two years in a row as a single player.

Pompan was undefeated during his senior season at York 2014, capturing the Central Coast Section singles title.

Main transfers to Sacramento State >> Former Stevenson four-sport standout Jensen Main has transferred to Sacramento State after two years as a pitcher for the University of New Mexico softball team.

The right-handed hurler was given her release from her softball scholarship, enabling her to pitch immediately next spring for the Hornets.

In two seasons at New Mexico, Jensen won 15 games and recorded 100 strikeouts. She also hit .358 last spring in 14 at bats with a homer and seven runs batted in.

Jensen was The Herald’s Female Athlete of the Year in 2016, and a four-time member of The Herald’s All-County softball team.

Honoring Bill Whited >> Former Hartnell College All-American Bill Whited has passed away at 91. The icon is still remembered for catching a huge touchdown pass against City College of San Francisco in 1949, outrunning future NFL Hall of Famer Ollie Matson to the end zone.

Whited was a two-way standout for the Panthers football program, having run a 100 yard dash in 10 seconds on a 205-pound frame. He came back and helped coach the team along with Arvin Smith in 1960 and 1961. He later became a charter coach for Salinas’ first Pop Warner team in 1960.

Smith to begin 10th season in the NFL >> Salinas High graduate Evan Smith has gone from an undrafted rookie to a 10 year veteran with a Super Bowl ring.

When training camps start next month, the 6-foot-2, 305-pound Smith will begin his fifth season in Tampa Bay, where he’ll serve as a backup at center and guard.

Smith spent his first five seasons in Green Bay, going from the practice squad to a starting center and a Super Bowl champion, snapping the ball to Aaron Rodgers.

Having played all five offensive line positions while at Idaho State, Smith has become the second longest tenured NFL player from Salinas, behind only North Salinas graduate Kassim Osgood’s 12 seasons.
