Leading off today:
The strange case of Rodney Headley Jr. has come to a conclusion that apparently satisfies both the Peekskill girls basketball coach and his employer, The Journal News
Headley, 29, has been cleared by an investigation into unspecified accusations against him but has also submitted a letter of resignation from his teaching job at Peekskill Middle School effective June 30, the paper reported.
Headley coached Peekskill to three Section 1 Class A championships in the last four years, including a state title in 2011. He was reassigned by the district on the eve of a loss to Maine-Endwell in the state tournament in March.
"To be honest, I didn't want (the process) to get as far as it did," Headley said. "It's something that's never going to be an issue anymore as far as Peekskill goes."
Headley intends to pursue other coaching jobs, perhaps at the college level.
College lacrosse player dies: Police are investigating the death of a SUNY Geneseo sophomore men's lacrosse player whose body was found Sunday in an off-campus fraternity house, the Democrat and Chronicle reported.
Alex Davis, 20, a 2012 Victor graduate, was discovered in an upper-floor bedroom of the Phi Sigma Xi fraternity house. The Livingston County coroner declared Davis dead at the scene.
Performance of the weekend: Carmel senior Jasmine Ennabe racked up 28 strikeouts in the Rams' 5-4 softball win over Brewster in 13 innings on Saturday, setting the presumed NYSPHSAA record for K's in a game.
The game was scoreless through nine innings. Carmel twice was one out away from losing but both times Nicole Monahan delivered run-scoring hits.
Chelsea Hawks of Shoreham-Wading River fanned 27 batters in a 13-inning game last season.
"I honestly can't believe it," said Ennabe, The Journal News Westchester/Putnam softball player of the year. "It hasn't hit me yet. It's amazing."
Ennabe fanned 20 in an 11-inning game earlier this season.
Ugly prank: Syracuse University officials are unhappily dealing with the aftermath of football players Terrel Hunt and Marcus Coleman posing for a photograph on Facebook that NCAA rules would interpret as an improper advertisement.
The episode almost pales in comparison to a story The Journal News told Monday about a girls basketball player.
A classmate got hold of point guard Ryan Doherty's smart phone last week and briefly hijacked her Twitter account, posting a statement in support of embattled Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
Mortified, Doherty deleted the tweet about 10 minutes after it had been posted, but not before any number of people could have seen the remark.
