On a related note, what would people recommend for a lens for action in the $600-700 range? I recognize that is a price range where compromises will have to be made.

That depends on (i) how close you are to the action, and (ii) whether you are indoors our out.  In reasonable outdoor light a DA 55-300 would be one to consider (much cheaper than your budget).  Indoors, in low light, you're going to need the widest aperture possible which means something like a Tamron or Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 which might be over your budget.

If you are close to the action, the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 would be fine - give it a second chance, it's an excellent lens usually!

Best wishes
