How did the middle paragraph get mixed in with the other two?
That's one heck of a non-sequitur!

Among the Stanford football players spotted in attendance supporting Gibbs were quarterback Kevin Hogan . . .

"I won't say they were obnoxious but they were tough," Hampton said. "I'm just happy they came out to support their girl. It wasn't but that's OK."

Gibbs said she will try to qualify for the main draw of the Southern California Open in Carlsbad beginning Saturday.
