ELWAY AT THE ISUZU: John Elway leads the field for the 9th annual $500,000 Isuzu Celebrity Championship, July 10-12 at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. Other celebrities include Mike Shanahan, Marcus Allen, Johnny Bench, Ivan Lendl, Jerry Rice, Mike Modano and Mario Lemieux. TNT will televise Friday's coverage, with NBC handling the weekend action. This marks the seventh year that Isuzu has sponsored the event, which is co-owned by NBC Sports and SMTI (Isuzu). NOTE: In Hartford, Mark Pukalo reports that the adidas soccer Summer League is "looking for a long-term home," and the Hartford CT area "has made a strong pitch." The second- year project brought nearly 100 top college soccer players to CT for competition last year (HARTFORD COURANT, 6/25).
