UWF Harriers tune-up for the Conference Championships with 3 mile Intersquad Race

first_img Share Oct. 12, 2007PENSACOLA, Fla. – The West Florida Cross Country teams ran in an intersquad meet on the UWF campus Friday morning. The meet consisted of three co-ed teams of 5 runners each. The top four runners from each team were scored for team results. The UWF B Team won the event with 28 points, just ahead of the UWF A Team with 29, while the UWF C squad was third with 36 points. The teams were set up to be even in terms of abilities and previous race performance. The race was on a very hilly and tough course, thus no personal bests were set, but several runners had impressive times for the conditions.Freshman Nicholas Maedel (Orange Park, Fla.), running for the B Squad, led all runners with a 16:22 time for the hilly three mile course. Running for the A squad, Jared Black (Fr. / Tallahassee, Fla.) and Justin Gates (Jr. / Ft. Walton Beach, Fla.), finished 2nd and 3rd in 16:52 and 16:53. Sean Jansen (Fr. / Lutz, Fla.) led the C squad with a fourth place finish in 17:02.Coach Matt Dobson was pleased as he discussed the tune-up event. “The Men have a great history of being prepared for the post season. This year is no different. The guys are having strong practices, and all that they need to do is stay healthy and get plenty of rest before the biggest meets of the year arrive.”The team is still nursing some injuries, and Seniors Diana Sitar (Las Vegas, Nev.), Brian Gowin (Pensacola, Fla.), and Jordan Theuerkauf (Wausau, Wisc.) did not run, but are expected to be key runners in the post season races. The GSC Runner of the Week, Eric Mayes (Jr. / Pensacola, Fla.), was also rested to make sure he is ready for the conference meet.Margaret Harter (Jr. / Milton, Fla.), running for the C squad, was the top Women’s finisher in 20:29, followed closely by Kelli Midden (Fr. / Boca Raton, Fla.) in 20:39. Coach Dobson discussed the Women’s post season prospects. “The Women are being led by veteran runners (Sitar and Harter), and they will be ready to run their best times of the season. Some of them have been distracted, and at times discouraged because of injuries. We will try to put all that behind us as we taper for the conference meet next week in Hoover, Ala.” Print Friendly Version UWF Harriers tune-up for the Conference Championships with 3 mile Intersquad Racelast_img read more

Eric Bekoe targets more after debut goal for Chelsea

first_imgBerekum Chelsea striker Eric Bekoe looks forward to scoring more after about recording his debut goal in a match day five encounter against Hearts of Oak on Sunday.The one time goal king who played for Asante Kotoko put Chelsea in front after four minutes in the first half before Latif Salifu added the second to make it 2-0 for the Berekum based side at the Golden City Park in Berekum.Bekoe who returned to the premier league this season after the cancellation of his contract with Egyptian side Petrojet is hoping to build on this to record more goals in the premier league.“I wanted a very proper time to open my goal scoring account and as I have scored against Hearts I’m sure more will come, we were too hot for the Phobians to handle”, said Eric Bekoe in an interview with JOY Sports.Eric Bekoe emerged as the Ghana’s Premier League top scorer with 17 goals in 2008. He secured a move to Egyptian side Petrojet FC and year later and has remained there until a few months ago when he landed a deal with the Berekum based side.Bekoe’s initial plan was to return to Asante Kotoko but that fell through due his inability to reach a good deal with the defending league champions. Berekum Chelsea have now moved to second place with just three points shy of leaders SC Medeama.last_img read more

Australian Open 2019: Naomi Osaka on run to remember as slam success continues

first_imgPetra Kvitova’s return to a grand slam final represents the most heartwarming of stories, but the popular Czech will need to succeed where 13 others have failed if Naomi Osaka is to be denied Australian Open glory.Kvitova stands one victory away from securing a third slam crown and her first since the horrendous knife attack that threatened her career in December 2016. Australian Open 2019: Relentless Rafael Nadal schools Stefanos Tsitsipas to reach final Fast forward 12 months and the Japanese is targeting a second slam in succession, her winning streak of 13 matches across the US Open and this event representing the longest such run by a female player since Serena Williams’ second ‘Serena Slam’ across 2014 and 2015.Williams, of course, was on the receiving end of Osaka’s brilliance in New York last September, when the youngster’s magnificent maiden victory in a major final was cruelly overshadowed by her opponent’s extraordinary row with chair umpire Carlos Ramos.Backing up a breakthrough at a slam is always challenging. Prior to Thursday, Jennifer Capriati was the last woman to follow up her first title by making the final of the next major, winning both the Australian Open and French Open in 2001.Terrific match up @AustralianOpen women’s final. Petra has never played Naomi. Collectively they are 6 sets won 0 lost in major finals. PK won 8 straight finals. NO trying to do what Jen Cap last did when winning 1st major, win next one. Will it be hardest hit women’s final ever?— Pam Shriver (@PHShriver) January 24, 2019In any circumstances, therefore, Osaka’s achievement in reaching Saturday’s decider in Melbourne would be hugely impressive.However, when you consider the drama that surrounded her triumph at Flushing Meadows – and who could forget Osaka being moved to tears in the post-match presentation as boos rained down from the stands of Arthur Ashe Stadium — this really is a run to be admired.At the US Open, the draw was relatively kind to the eventual women’s champion. Osaka did not face a top-10 seed in the event, although her idol Williams clearly represented the most daunting of final opponents, while her last-eight tie was a cakewalk with Lesia Tsurenko hampered by a viral illness.It has been a different story in Melbourne, where Osaka has recorded consecutive wins over Anastasija Sevastova, Elina Svitolina and Karolina Pliskova to earn a place in the final.”I won’t see you but…wish me luck? I guess?”@Naomi_Osaka_ ‘s message to fans!#AusOpe#大坂なおみ pic.twitter.com/tOGcTiBT48— WTA (@WTA) January 24, 2019Victory on Saturday would send Osaka to the top of the world rankings (the same can also be said for Kvitova) and complete an incredible rise for a player thriving when it matters most. Australian Open 2019: Novak Djokovic thrashes Lucas Pouille to set up showdown with Rafael Nadalcenter_img Yet while the left-hander has displayed imperious form over the past fortnight, not dropping a single set on her way to the final, she now faces the significant challenge of overcoming a 21-year-old who has swiftly become unstoppable on the biggest stage.Osaka was the world No. 72 this time last year and had just achieved her best result at a slam, reaching the fourth round at Melbourne Park. Related News “You guys know that I love grand slams,” she told reporters in a news conference following her defeat of Pliskova, which was secured with the aid of 56 winners. “It definitely helped knowing that I won the US Open because I knew that I had the ability to win that many matches, play for that long.”This is a place I think is worth all the training. When you’re little, you watch the grand slams, you watch all the players play the legendary matches here. For me, this is the most important tournament. There’s only four of them a year, so of course I want to do the best that I can here.”Kvitova – who has won her last eight WTA finals and 26 out of 33 in her career – is likely to take some stopping, but Osaka could not have done any more up to now. Given all she has achieved over the last few months, you sense nothing is beyond her.last_img read more

Ohio State swimmers Lindsey Clary and Liz Li take success into NCAA

OSU junior Lindsey Clary poses for a picture at the Big Ten championships. Credit: Courtesy of OSUThe last time the Ohio State women’s swimming and diving team had a better performance at the conference championships than it did last month, no members on the current roster were born.Thanks in large part to two standout meets from junior Lindsey Clary and sophomore Liz Li, who secured two individual titles each, the Buckeyes took fourth place as a team at the Big Ten championships. Now they’re looking to repeat that success as they compete at the NCAA championships in Atlanta from March 16 to 19. Overall, the Buckeyes took home five titles, including one relay win — the first time since 1991 that the Buckeyes won a Big Ten relay event. Li, along with classmate Macie McNichols and seniors Annie Jongekrijg and Rachael Dzierzak, won the 200-yard freestyle relay, beating their own school record, while setting a pool record in the process. To add the icing on the cake, the relay team’s winning time also qualified it for the national championships.Clary had qualified for nationals at the Ohio State Invitational in November, so her training program was adjusted to have her be at her peak in Atlanta. As such, she went into the conference meet at a disadvantage relative to the other swimmers. Even though she didn’t have much to gain personally, Clary said she used the opportunity to accumulate points for her team as a catalyst to drive her.“Going into Big Tens I knew that I was in spots to score for my team,” Clary said. “I kind of used that as motivation, I knew I was in a good spot rested or not, I knew that I could get the job done.”She broke the pool record on her way to the Big Ten title in the 400-yard individual medley with a time of 4:03.64. She now enters the NCAA championships as the second seed.“My coach and I have talked a lot about how I’m going to be in the mix for the (national) title for the 400 (individual medley),” Clary said. “It’s definitely never even been a thought for me, so when my coach said that in the fall in one of my goal meetings I was like, ‘(Wow), he’s crazy.’ But I guess seeing the psych sheet and seeing what I did at Big Tens with little to no rest, it really pumps me up, so I’m pretty excited to see how that plays out, as well as my mile and 500.”Clary also won the 1,650-yard freestyle — the mile — and is seeded third in the event heading into the national championships. She took third in the conference in the 500-yard freestyle, which results in her qualifying for the NCAAs in that race, as well.As for the other Buckeye who won two individual titles, Li said she fell ill while resting for the conference championships, but she used inspiration from her teammates and coaches to gain confidence heading into the meet.“I was really sick, and I got tired mentally and psychologically. I felt like I might not perform well during Big Tens,” Li said. “I was so concerned about that, but my teammates and the coaching staff encouraged me, and they believed in me that I could do a good job.”OSU sophomore Liz Li poses for a picture at the Big Ten championships. Credit: Courtesy of OSULi won the 50-yard freestyle with a time of 21.80 seconds and is the second seed in the event at the NCAA championships. This was the first time that a Buckeye had won the Big Ten 50-yard freestyle title since 1982.Not being the top-ranked swimmer in the event isn’t necessarily a bad thing, Li said. “I feel like maybe that’s a great opportunity for me to improve myself, because I love people in front of me who are faster than me to lead me to my best,” she said.The sophomore also captured the conference title in the 100-yard butterfly and will be the No. 12 seed heading into the national championships. In her third event at the conference meet, she was out-touched in the 100-yard freestyle and had to settle for second place, but she will have another shot as the eighth seed in Atlanta.Clary said she thinks the team’s resurgence is because of a change within the team atmosphere, which has been a focus for the Buckeyes this season.“We’ve brought in a lot of outside aspects to help our culture and just team building and bonding with each other,” Clary said. “We’ve made that more of a priority, and I think the team has really bought into the program and the process.”OSU coach Bill Dorenkott credited good personnel and individual discipline outside of practice and competitions as the reason for the team’s success this postseason.“It took a while to get the culture where we want it, and that’s an everyday process,” Dorenkott said. “The decisions that the girls are making away from the pool, there’s a cumulative effect there, and you’re seeing the results of that. It just took a while to get the right people in the program and fit them into the proper roles.”The season doesn’t end for the Buckeyes in Atlanta. Seventeen members of the team are planning to compete in their respective Olympic trials for the chance to swim in Rio de Janeiro in August. read more

Mens Basketball Second half struggles give Ohio State 6244 loss to No

Ohio State redshirt senior guard Keyshawn Woods attempts a shot against Michigan State at the Breslin Center in East Lansing on Feb. 17. Photo: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorEAST LANSING, Mich — A sea of white hindered Ohio State while it tried to establish its offense. Each time the shot clock was under 10 seconds, the Michigan State student section counted down to one, seemingly leading to a rushed shot even when five seconds were left on the clock. C.J. Jackson, one of only two players on Ohio State’s roster that has played in East Lansing before, seemed unfazed. The senior guard, with five seconds left on the shot clock, put up a 3 from the top of the 3-point line as if time had expired. He sunk it, giving Ohio State the early 7-2 lead. But even as Ohio State showed spurts of offensive potential in the first half, inexperience and inconsistency reigned, and the sea of white rejoiced as the Buckeyes (16-9, 6-8 Big Ten) fell to No. 11 Michigan State (21-5, 12-3 Big Ten) 62-44 on Sunday. It was the least amount of points Ohio State has scored in a game this season. After shooting 40 percent from the field in the first half, making 3-of-6 from deep, Ohio State struggled with offensive consistency in the second, making 4-of-21 from the field and 1-of-9 from 3. The Buckeyes scored 13 points in the second half compared to Michigan State’s 37 and did not record a field goal in the final 7:40. Facing a defense that limits opponents to shoot 37.3 percent from the field, Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann said struggling to score has been a challenge, but something he expected to see in this team. “It’s not like we didn’t expect that we were going to have trouble scoring this year,” Holtmann said. “We had an expectation that that was going to be something. We just have to keep taking good shots.” WIth the game tied at 39, Michigan State redshirt senior forward Kenny Goins sparked the Spartans’ second-half momentum, hitting a 3. But Jackson answered on the next possession with his second 3 in three tries. Jackson finished the game with eight points, making 1-of-6 opportunities from inside the 3-point line. But redshirt junior guard Kyle Ahrens answered with a 3 of his own, beginning a 10-0 Spartans run and putting a dagger through the hopes of the Buckeyes victory. “If they are all hype making shots, it’s tough to make shots when the crowd is going crazy and they are all hyped up on defense,” sophomore guard Musa Jallow said.In the second half, Michigan State made 12-of-26 attempts from the floor, shooting 42.9 percent from 3. As the crowd got behind the Michigan State offense, especially in the second half, Holtmann said it was hard to watch his team implode offensively. “It’s frustrating when you are struggling to score as much as you are struggling to score,” Holtmann said. “I think that is frustrating for guys because you tie so much of yourself to your offense.” In the first half, momentum favored the road team. The Ohio State offense came out hot, taking a 14-5 lead in the first seven minutes of the game. Sophomore forward Kaleb Wesson, in his second matchup with Michigan State junior forward and Gahanna, Ohio-native Nick Ward, scored six of the 14 points. Wesson finished the game with 12 points, the only Ohio State player with double-digit points, and nine rebounds.With Ward sidelined for the majority of the first half with a hand injury, Wesson said he feels like he battled in the post, but said he was unhappy with his six missed shots.But the runs continued in the first half. After redshirt junior Kyle Ahrens and Ward brought the Spartans back to within two, senior guard Matt McQuaid hit a corner 3 with Ohio State freshman forward Justin Ahrens draped over him, giving the Spartans its first lead of the day. With the Spartans holding onto a one-point lead heading into the final three minutes of the first half, Jallow hit a 3, igniting a 7-0 run and giving the Buckeyes a 31-25 halftime lead. This was the expectation for Jallow heading into the second half of play. “Just come back for another 20 minutes and play as hard as we did in the first half,” Jallow said. “When the game ended, we weren’t as good as we were in the first half.” Despite a six-point Ohio State lead heading into the second half, Michigan State began the half with a 7-1 run, tying the game at 32. However, offensive success came to a stand still for both the Spartans and the Buckeyes a the start of the half, combining to make two of 12 total shots, with Ohio State missing its first six. After the first half of play, Jallow felt this game was in the grasp of Ohio State. But after scoring 13 points in the second half, Jallow said this loss hurts. “It leaves a bad taste in your mouth because we knew this was a winnable game and we just didn’t do enough to pull it out in the second half,” Jallow said. Ohio State will travel home to take on Northwestern on Wednesday at the Schottenstein Center at 8:30 p.m. Updated at 4:32 p.m. with quotes from sophomore guard Musa Jallow, sophomore forward Kaleb Wesson and head coach Chris Holtmann. read more
