OTTAWA - Susan Nattrass will lead Canada into the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The six-time medallist and seven-time world champion has been chosen as this countrys flag-bearer for the opening ceremony next month in Glasgow, Scotland. "Im ecstatic. It is such a tremendous honour to have been selected as Canadas flag-bearer," Nattrass said in a release. "I love the Commonwealth Games and will do my best to be worthy of this exceptional group of athletes that we have on our team." The 63-year-old, who makes her home in Edmonton, has won medals in womens trapshooting at every Commonwealth Games she has attended and is also a member of Canadas Sport Hall of Fame, an Officer of the Order of Canada and a former Canadian athlete of the year. "Susan has that rare quality of being both a pioneer in her sport, while still being a competitive, world-class athlete," said Canada chef de mission Chantal Petitclerc. "She will be an inspiration to all of us in Glasgow." Nattrass was the first woman to ever compete in an Olympic trap shooting competition back in 1976, finishing 25th against her male counterparts. She again broke the gender barrier in 1990 when she competed at the Commonwealth Games in Auckland, New Zealand, as the only woman in an all-men competition. Nattrass successfully lobbied to have womens shotgun events included at the Manchester Commonwealth Games in 2002 and pressed the IOC to include womens trap and skeet events at the Olympics after they were barred following the 1992 Games. The events were eventually added to the Olympics in 2000. The Commonwealth Games run from July 23 to Aug. 3. Matt Joyce Jersey .

They closed it with seven straight victories. The Ducks may have stumbled in the middle, but reserve guard Jason Calliste says the Ducks still belong in the national conversation -- especially after a 64-57 victory over No. 3 Arizona in the regular-season finale Saturday. "We can be one of the best teams in the country," he said. "Doesnt matter who were playing. Doesnt matter what the name on the chest says." Calliste made the go-ahead jumper and free throw with 4:22 left and finished with 18 points for the Ducks, who trailed by as many as 12 points. "I just didnt want to lose," he said. "Wasnt time to go home yet." Johnathan Loyd added 16 points for the Ducks (22-8, 10-8 Pac-10) who greatly improved their chances of a bid in the NCAA tournament. Last season Oregon won the Pac-12 tournament and advanced all the way to the final 16. Aaron Gordon had 21 points for the Wildcats (28-3, 15-3), who had already clinched the Pac-12 regular-season title heading into next weeks conference tournament in Las Vegas. The Ducks won 13 straight to start the season and were ranked as high as No. 10, but then they lost five straight to tumble out of the poll and fall in the Pac-12 standings. The Ducks considered the game a must-win after a six-game winning streak made them a possible bubble team for the NCAA post-season and gave them their fourth straight season with at least 20 victories. As for the prospects following the victory over Arizona, Oregon coach Dana Altman wasnt going to speculate. "Im not going to worry about all that," he said. "Weve got to go to the conference tournament and weve just got to play." The Wildcats led by as many as 12 points in the first half, but Oregon closed to 31-29 at halftime. Mike Mosers 3-pointer got the Ducks to 36-34 early in the second half with a 3-pointer. A six-point run put Arizona ahead 44-36 with 11:55 left and the Wildcats held on to the lead until Joseph Youngs 3-pointer got the Ducks within 50-48 and Loyds layup tied it at 50 with five minutes left.dddddddddddd Calliste hit a jumper and a free throw to give the Ducks a 53-51 lead with 4:22 left for their first lead since the games opening minute. Calliste and Loyd hit back-to-back 3s to stretch the lead to 59-51 and the 12,364 fans at Matthew Knight Arena were on their feet. The Ducks held on for the win and the crowd rushed the court. Arizona had won five straight since a 69-66 overtime loss to rival Arizona State on Feb. 14. "They were highly motivated," Arizona coach Sean Miller said about the Ducks. "With that, we had to play at our best and we didnt." Oregon went into the game averaging a league-best 82.9 points, while the Wildcats were holding opponents to a league-low 58.5 points. Arizona jumped out to a 9-2 lead that was snapped by Loyds steal and fast-break layup for the Ducks. The Wildcats made it 20-8 on Nick Johnsons dunk midway through the first half. Joseph Youngs layup pulled Oregon within 24-18, but Caleb Tarczewski answered with a dunk for the Wildcats. Oregon pulled to 31-29 at the half on Callistes 3-pointer with 3-seconds to go before the break. Calliste made four of five 3-point attempts in the game. Tarczewski led all players with 10 points in the first half. "Theyre fighting for a tournament berth and guys are in zones," said Johnson, who finished with 11 points for the Wildcats. "Give him (Calliste) credit, he made the shots." Mike Moser had with 10 points and 10 rebounds for his fourth straight double-double. Arizona beat Oregon 67-65 in Tucson on Feb. 6. It was Arizonas first full game without sophomore forward Brandon Ashley, who is out for the season after surgery on his right foot. Seven Oregon seniors played their final regular-season home game at Matthew Knight Arena.
