Volleyball falls to Saint Leo 3-0 in the NCAA DII South Regional Quarterfinals

first_img Live Stats Watch Live Preview Full Schedule Roster vs. Saint Leo (NCAA DII South Regional Quarterfinal) 12/3/2015 – 5:00 p.m. ET Next Game: WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – The No. 5 seed University of West Florida volleyball team fell to the No. 4 seed Saint Leo 0-3 (16-25, 23-25, 14-25) in the NCAA DII South Regional Quarterfinals on Thursday. West Florida’s season comes to an end as the Argonauts finish the season with a 28-7 overall record. “I think tonight was more about how good Saint Leo played,” head coach Melissa Wolter. “We had seen them play at the (South Region Crossover), we didn’t play against them but we certainly knew they were talented.  They beat us in places we didn’t anticipate them beating us in. “I thought both of their middles played really well. I thought they played great defense. I really have to give credit where credit is due. I think Saint Leo just had a great day and just really not a great day on our side of the net.” West Florida had 24 kills and 24 errors in the match for a .000 team attacking percentage. Junior Corisha Smith (Inwood, W.Va./Musselman HS) led UWF offensively with nine kills and two service aces in the loss. Junior Tori Martella (Jacksonville, Fla./Providence HS) tallied 18 digs in the win en route to taking sole possession of the single season digs record at UWF. Martella has 572 digs this season and also ranks fourth on the career digs list at UWF (1,247). Sophomore Monique StCyr (Williamsburg, Va./Jamestown HS) tallied 12 assists, three kills and eight digs in the loss while fellow sophomore Rachel Neblett (Austin, Texas/Vista Ridge HS) added five kills and a block. Junior Kathryn Torre (Highland, Ill./State College of Florida) had three kills (.222) and two blocks while senior Autumn Duyn (Venice, Fla./Venice HS) tallied three kills and nine digs in the final match of her career.Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Kenai City Council Approves Money For Meals On Wheels, Pedestrian Pathway

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The City of Kenai agreed to appropriate $32,500 from Meals On Wheels America, in support of the services provided to Meals On Wheels recipients. This marked the second round of grant funding to help fund Meals On Wheels services in Kenai due to increased demand during the COVID-19 pandemic. The resolution was passed during the Wednesday evening Kenai City Council meeting. City Manager Paul Ostrander said that the state has expressed concerns about a municipality being responsible for such a project, but that he’s hopeful that it will all come together smoothly: “I do think that the resolution, potentially, does help. It gives me additional talking points when I reach out to the Commissioner. That’s what I told [the state] on the phone. I said that as soon as this resolution is passed, I am going to reach out to the Commissioner and have a conversation about the bike path and why it makes sense not only for the city, but for the state as well, for us to manage both the design and construction process. I’m hopeful that the resolution will help.” What’s next in Kenai? A hot topic confirmed to be on the August 19 City Council agenda is discussion of Ordinance No. 3127-2020, which is an ordinance introduced by Council Member Robert Peterkin regarding a vote-by-mail system. It is based upon information learned from a work group in May. Also during the meeting, the council agreed unanimously to move forward with Ordinance 2020-62, the request to plan, design, construct, and perform construction administration of the Bridge Access Road pedestrian pathway project.center_img Mayor Brian Gabriel abstained from the matter due to conflict of interest. The sponsor of the ordinance, Council Member Henry Knackstedt: “Our city is very capable of designing a bike path that’s basically a third of a width of a road for about a mile. It’s a relatively simple design overall. We’re very capable within our city, and also our engineers, that might propose on it. Also, I think that it’s important for the city to be doing the design work closer to the public than, perhaps, the state would be. Their offices would be in Anchorage if people had particular questions about how the design was coming, or suggestions for modifying it.”last_img read more

Alabama’s running game attacks defense’s weakest link

first_imgAlabama running back Derrick Henry is the sixth leading rusher in the country and faces Mississippi State this weekend.Alabama running back Derrick Henry is the sixth leading rusher in the country and faces Mississippi State this weekend.STARKVILLE – Richie Brown and his team-leading 73 tackles might not determine how Mississippi State fares against Derrick Henry. A.J. Jefferson and his 12.5 tackle for loss may not factor into the Alabama running back’s performance.The Bulldog veterans are two of the defense’s top tacklers, which means the Crimson Tide will run elsewhere.“They do a great job of trying to find, let’s just say your least willing tacklers,” MSU defensive coordinator Manny Diaz said.At 6-foot-3, 242 pounds, Henry isn’t easy to bring down. He has a knack for falling forward when teams do tackle him.The task becomes near-impossible when Henry, who has scored in 14 straight games, gets his shoulders squared, reaches full speed, and has only a corner to beat.“The smartest thing to do is run to the people who are on scholarship to cover passes, not tackle running backs,” Brown said. “Most coaches take advantage of that.”Few do it better than Alabama with Henry in the backfield.The junior has averaged 6.6 yards per carry against six ranked teams this season. He’s averaged 173.6 rushing yards with 10 touchdowns in those games, leading the Crimson Tide to a 5-1 record.Since 2008, Alabama is 74-4 when rushing for at least 140 yards.“They’re just going to keep asking the same question and see if you’re willing to be where you’re  supposed to be with the right frame of mind for 60 minutes,” Diaz said. “If you can hang on for 15, 25 or 35 minutes, sooner or later they just keep pounding at you and eventually it cracks.”Henry outshined LSU’s Leonard Fournette last weekend in Tuscaloosa. Fournette leads the country with 1,383 rushing yards. Only 31 came against Alabama.Henry, the nation’s sixth-leading rusher, gained 210 yards and three touchdowns against the Tigers. He has 589 yards on the ground in his last three games. No. 17 Mississippi State’s top two rushers have 638 yards through nine games.“We’ve  played against some great backs this year, obviously Leonard,” Jefferson said. “But I don’t know. I feel like (Henry’s) one of a kind right now.”Mississippi State limited Fournette to 5.6 yards per carry in September. Prior to his performance against No. 2 Alabama, it ranked as his fewest yards per carry of the season.Arkansas is the only team to hold Henry under 100 yards rushing when he gets at least 20 carries. He finished with 95 yards on 27 carries.  The Razorbacks contained Henry with group tackling. His longest run of the day went for 15 yards.“It’s no pressure really. You play the game to tackle,” safety Kivon Coman said. “That’s why you play defense is to tackle. If you didn’t want to tackle, you’d be on offense.”Under Diaz, Mississippi State transitioned to a rugby-style tackle. It focuses on attacking a ball-carrier’s thighs with the shoulder pads.Henry stands two inches taller than MSU’s senior corner Taveze Calhoun. The running back also has a 60-pound advantage when the two teams meet on Saturday at Davis Wade Stadium (2:30 p.m. CBS).In that matchup vs. Henry, Calhoun, like the rest of the team, will rely on technique.“For me, that’s the only way I probably can tackle him anyway is legs,” Calhoun said. “It will help me out a lot.”Contact Michael Bonner at mbonner@jackson.gannett.com.

Player’s transfer wish for January ‘accepted’ by Tottenham, contacts with several…

first_imgThe 23-year-old has seen his opportunities limited at the north London club, which is why he spent the second half of the last campaign on loan at Burnley.Since returning to his parent club, the winger impressed during preseason, but that was not sufficient to find his way into Mauricio Pochettino’s plans for this season.The Frenchman has been restricted to just one substitute appearance in all competitions and that came during the EFL Cup clash against West Ham United in October.According to Footmercato, the attacker’s limited playing time has seen him make up his mind to go out on loan in the winter market and the player’s January transfer wish has been ‘accepted’ by the Premier League outfit.Embed from Getty ImagesIt’s explained that N’Koudou has contacts with clubs from Germany, Italy and Spain, but the wideman is yet to make a final decision as he wants to join a side that will trust him the most and also provide him with a platform to help him regain his Marseille form.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameWill You Build The Most Beautiful City?Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoPremier Diamond BoutiqueHong Kong’s first lab-grown diamond empirePremier Diamond BoutiqueUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉(今晚試試)Keto减肥UndoCNBC InternationalHere’s How Big Businesses in Singapore Are Managing the Impact of COVID-19.CNBC InternationalUndoPerfect-Dating.comReveal Tung Chung As The Best City to Date for Love & RomancePerfect-Dating.comUndoDating.comWhere do attractive singles meet in Tung Chung?Dating.comUndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndo熱門話題小心會長過頭…網友推爆:「真的長得超誇張!」熱門話題Undo During Georges-Kévin N’Koudou’s only season at Marseille, he impressed with his display and that was sufficient for Tottenham Hotspur to sign him in 2016.last_img read more

And then they anouce we’re doing pro-combat which has been known for some very team specific and incredibly unique uniforms like The U’s and FSU and TCU. And they roll out a standard template. ASU and WSU new unis are more exciting than this. If you took the G off the collar you wouldn’t know if these we’re UGA’s or Valdosta State’s.You sum up my feelings exactly. I’m not a fan of the monochrome look, but the fact that these seem so half-assed is what gets me. They could have gone in so many directions, yet they chose to just throw out a bland top and bland pants.

The jersey would go better with black pants, as well as a black or red helmet. A black helmet would look better with my hypothetical uniform if done right. My hypothetical look may eschew UGA tradition, but that is usually what pro combat uniforms do and it is just a one game thing. I would never advocate for UGA to go to this look full time.

I’ll never forget the look and his kindness.Of course, would be one of the first things I’d grab if my house was ever on fire (touch wood)We went to a few college (or high school??) games too. I remember being amazed at how each teams fans stay quiet while the opposing team chants. Ended up getting a game ball too, because the family I was staying with knew an umpire. Most of our games were played on 2 soccer grounds. Each ground had 4 games running simultaneously (home plate in each corner). The umpires had to call time every now and then because another team had hit a home run or a double onto our diamond. This wasn’t the weirdest thing though. To get there, we had to take an outdoor escalator, because the grounds were played above a sewage. 59 Share on other sites Link to post 59 This topic is now closed to further replies. 0 The Mojo Maniac ’06 Komadai Tomakomai High School (Hokkaido prefecture), Masahiro Tanaka (Yankees) at 88th Summer Koshien (national championship, KT lost the chance at a three-peat, losing 4-3 in 9 innings, after playing 15 the previous day to a 1-1 draw): Fall ’13, 66th Hokkaido HS Tournament, Sapporo Otani vs Komadai Tomakomai (KT won 3-2): Summer Koshien Championship, home of the Hanshin Tigers: 0 Link to post 48 Sign in to follow this   #hailstate Location:somewhere in Kansas… Page 1 of 2   28 Sports Logos 28 YesterdayWasCool Location:Texas Posted March 30, 2014 Rogers High School, Rogers TX Share this post Share on other sites It’s nice to see a number of teams in here with striped socks and stirrups.Last time I checked, my former school wore essentially Kansas City Royals’ uniforms. They even used the same font for the script, but with “Pioneers” instead of “Royals”. This is probably in part because our coach’s brother was (maybe still is) a Royals’ scout.

Members Next 59 Members 59 Share this post In regards to Elwood’s post, is there a story/explanation behind Japanese players’ obsession with bending the bill of their caps in the inverted V shape? I especially noticed it previously in the Little League World Series, always piqued my curiosity.Many Japanese ask the same question. Some say, the cap bills have always been bent that way. Ever since, some invincible team wore their caps that way and everyone followed. Others say, by bending the bills, the players can focus on the target, like a grounder or pop-up. The story I’ve been told that made the most sense is that some time ago, it was a tradition to fold their caps a certain way, creating a natural bend when they put them in their back pocket. I think they probably just got tired of bending them back. A tradition that gradually evolved into a fashion trend.

I remember going on a baseball tour of japan, playing rural teams in Saitama and other international sides in Edogawa. We got so used to seeing baseball hats bent to the point of breaking, that by the end of our tour the whole side had a 90 degree bend in our bills. 59 1,574 posts Posted March 17, 2014 0 Elwood Share on other sites 0 Sports Logo News 1 2 260 posts GriffinM6 Share this post SportsLogos.Net Share this post PhantomDreamer The Mojo Maniac 82 posts Members 35 Link to post 31 posts Next 286 63 posts 63 posts 2,209 maizeblue13 Link to post Elwood 844 16,708 posts where i played.Lake Zurich (IL) Bears Posted March 22, 2014 Tracy MidGrady jsp34 Share this post 517 High School Baseball uniforms Posted March 22, 2014 Posted March 17, 2014 Location:Japan 59 Share this post Location:Japan 44 posts In regards to Elwood’s post, is there a story/explanation behind Japanese players’ obsession with bending the bill of their caps in the inverted V shape?

Flint Powers was ranked second and Spring Lake was ranked third.“Four years ago we qualified for state and the girls all had the jitters,” said Spring Lake Coach George Bitner. “They had never been to state before, and they shot a bad round on the first day. The second day we had the best score of the entire tournament and ended up third.“That’s how it all started. We save our best for the end.”Senior Anna Kramer once again led the Lakers, finishing second overall in the tournament with a score of 153. She was tied for first at the end of 18 holes with Danielle Staskowski of Pontiac Notre Dame, but lost the individual title on a sudden death playoff hole.Kramer was the 2015 individual state champion.Madelyn Nelson shot a 168 and finished eighth overall for Spring lake while Hannah Klein shot a 170 and finished 10th.Rounding out the Laker scorers were Jackie Olszewski (174) and Jaedyn Shelton (177).“That’s a tough course,” Bitner said about Bedford Valley. “But the tougher the course is, the better we do. We separate ourselves from the competition.”High school golf is a team sport, and the worst score on the team is just as important as the best. Bitner said Olszewski and Shelton helped make another title possible this year by improving their games.“The two of them improved a lot from last year, and it helped a lot,” Bitner said. “This is a great group of girls. They think positive. They practiced hard all summer, almost every day.”The Lakers were honored by their classmates at Spring Lake High School with an assembly at the end of the day on Monday. All three state championship trophies were brought out, and all the players were honored, Bitner said.At the end the students in the assembly rose and gave a standing ovation, Bitner said.

Jadon Sancho on the plane – Flight seen as key in…

first_imgThe Bundesliga club will be there for a week as they prepare for the coming season.Dortmund had sent a message out to the media a while ago that if Manchester United hadn’t agreed to pay €120m by August 10th then Sancho would go on the trip and continue with them for another campaign.That deadline has been widely doubted, with many, among the media and fans, finding it hard to believe the German club would refuse €120m if it came later.Regardless of that, Bild reiterate that Manchester United haven’t even made an offer yet.Should Sancho remain with his current club then Bild believe he’ll be given a pay rise, taking his wages from €6m a year to €10m. There would be no contract extension involved with that, and his deal would still be set to expire in 2022.The German media have previously reported there’s confidence at Borussia Dortmund that they will still be able to get a big fee next summer.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameDon’t Play This Game, it’s Addictive.Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoDBS”I had S$9 left in my bank account”DBSUndoWealthMastery.asiaThis Singaporean Couple is Disrupting A $3 Trillion IndustryWealthMastery.asiaUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoSingtelGet 30GB for $25 on SG’s #1 network.SingtelUndoGOMO by Singtel.Switch to GOMO. 40GB for $20 for 12 months!GOMO by Singtel.UndoSingtel PowerInstant savings and a $50 rebate.Singtel PowerUndoTip ParentsBaby Keeps Waking Up With Scratches, Mom Checks Camera And Calls CopsTip ParentsUndoDaily Sport XShe Was A Legendary Actress – Today She Works 9 To 5Daily Sport XUndo Borussia Dortmund’s deadline for Jadon Sancho’s transfer has expired, report Bild.
