Homecomings

first_imgThis is homecoming season in football.  Tonight is Batesville’s Homecoming game with the Lawrenceburg Tigers.  I don’t know how long this tradition has been around, but for most of us it seems like it has always been there.There are many different traditions involved with Homecoming.  First, it was strictly for football.  Now schools might choose another sport for Homecoming, especially if they do not field a football team.  As far as I know, this tradition has not been around as long.  There has always been the crowning of royalty and floats from many different sources for a parade before the game.  It is a tradition for the senior class to win, so this brings about some spirited competition from the other 3 grades in their float building.  Sometimes it gets so “spirited” that the floats have to be locked up for safe keeping until the parade on Friday.Something that has been added in the last few years to high school homecomings has been the tailgating.  This college tradition is filtering down.  Hope to see you tonight at the Big Game!last_img read more

Martinez expects Arsenal to slip up

first_img Press Association The initiative, in the form of a one-point lead, in the race for the top four was handed back to the Gunners after the Toffees’ home defeat to Crystal Palace last week. Arsene Wenger’s side have the easier-looking run-in with games against Newcastle, West Brom and Norwich – compared to Everton’s Southampton-Manchester City-Hull combination – but Martinez believes they will slip up Mirallas has already been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign with a groin problem sustained in Sunday’s win over Manchester United while Distin is waiting to hear in the next 48 hours whether a hamstring injury has prematurely ended his campaign. Martinez, however, rejected suggestions the size of the squad had contributed to the recent spate of problems. “Sylvain has played a lot of games this season and has never had a sign of showing fatigue so I would say that was just an action in the game which resulted in an injury,” added the Toffees boss. “With Kevin Mirallas it is the last action of the game and it is an accident as he is trying to reach for the ball. “I was well aware of making sure the last seven to eight weeks of the season was not a strain for a specific players, particularly the forwards, and we shared the playing time really well. “I don’t think any of the injuries are down to fatigue or lack of planning. “In football you are going to get contact and sometimes you will be unfortunate but they are not injuries which are down to the minutes players have played.” Traore has featured for just 61 minutes in a single appearance since arriving on loan from Monaco in January and is unlikely to feature again. But Martinez has not ruled out the prospect of retaining the services of the Ivory Coast international next season. “We will sit down in the summer and review the situation,” he said. “I know Lacina is frustrated he has not been able to play more minutes for us. “We need to speak to his parent club and see what their thoughts are but he is a very interesting player for us.” “I think it is fair to say, just looking at the last 15 years or so, fourth place is well below 76 points,” said the Spaniard, whose side currently have 69 points. “There has only been one season where you have needed 76 points for that (fourth) and on average it’s always been a lot less points. “You don’t go far wrong when you look at the points tally. We are well aware anything around 72 to 75 points is Champions League football so we are desperate to try to make sure we get that. “It doesn’t matter who you are playing against or who you are fighting against to get into that fourth spot it’s always the points tally that matters. “I will go as far to say if you get nine points and you don’t get into the Champions League, you can be proud and very happy any way. “That’s the target we are giving ourselves – how many points we can get from now until the end of the season. “We have to make sure that we are fresh, we have recovered and look at every game as a unique opportunity to show what we can do.” Everton’s small squad, already without midfielders Darron Gibson and Steven Pienaar, defender Phil Jagielka and strikers Lacina Traore and Arouna Kone, will be depleted further by the absences of forward Kevin Mirallas and centre-back Sylvain Distin. Everton manager Roberto Martinez remains confident victory in their final three matches will secure Champions League football despite Arsenal holding the advantage. last_img read more

3 overdose after using wasp spray as an alternative to meth

first_imgOfficials in Virginia are reporting that at least three people have overdosed due to the new disturbing trend of using wasp spray as a method to get high.Though it is unclear when the trend exactly started, authorities are expressing concerns after not only seeing it on the streets but also due to reports of stores selling cans of the chemical mixture at elevated rates.“We’re seeing this here on the streets in Boone County,” Sgt. Charles Sutphin said. “People are making a synthetic type methamphetamine out of wasp spray.”Officials say that it sometimes takes one, sometimes three hits of the stray for the body to develop an allergic and potentially fatal reaction to the chemicals.“It’s a cheap fix, and you don’t know what their overall result of their usage of this is going to be”Sutphin said.While the trend continues to grow in the county officials also reported that they do not have an exact fix to reverse the effects of the chemical compound.State Police in Boone County are now working with medical and poison control centers to determine the best possible treatment for those who ingest the chemical mixture.Once a solution is made, officials plan to distribute the antidote to authorities to potentially save the life of others just incase the trend continues to spread.last_img read more

National : Traditional powers Duke, UNC facing challenge for ACC title

first_img Published on February 15, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Stephen: sebail01@syr.edu | @Stephen_Bailey1 Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Duke and North Carolina have dominated the Atlantic Coast Conference ever since its creation in 1953.In 46 of 58 seasons in the ACC’s existence, and each of the past eight, the Blue Devils or Tar Heels have finished the season with at least a share of the regular-season crown.Each entering the stretch run of their respective conference schedules at the top of the ACC standings, the two perennial powerhouses are not alone. Florida State is right there with them.‘Well, all three teams are extremely gifted,’ Miami (Fla.) head coach Jim Larranaga said Monday on the ACC coaches’ teleconference. ‘All three teams have different ways of hurting you. Carolina has got the biggest team. And size in basketball can really be a factor if the size has athletic ability and skill; and Carolina has both.‘So they are a very, very talented team, and so is Florida State and so is Duke.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe 20th-ranked Seminoles made it clear from the start of the season this year’s ACC competition would be a race between the three teams. FSU won seven straight conference matchups after falling to Clemson on Jan. 7. Though no player averages more than 14 points per game, eight Florida State players record at least seven points per contest.The Seminoles are tied with two of the most explosive teams in the country and have had the upper hand against the two historical powerhouses. Florida State’s winning streak included a 90-57 rout of No. 8 UNC and a buzzer-beating 76-73 victory over No. 5 Duke on Jan. 21.The Blue Devils slid a bit after that game, allowing 76 points to an inexperienced St. John’s squad and falling in overtime to Miami.But Duke came out of that slump to hand North Carolina its second conference loss Feb. 8, courtesy of a 10-point comeback in the final two minutes. It was capped off by an Austin Rivers’ 3-pointer from the right wing as time expired at the Dean E. Smith Center.The improved play of junior guard Seth Curry — who is averaging 17 points on 48 percent shooting over the Blue Devils’ last two games — factored into the turnaround, head coach Mike Krzyzewski said.‘He’s playing very well,’ Krzyzewski said Monday on the ACC coaches’ teleconference. ‘The other thing with Seth, we’ve used him in multiple roles. Sometimes when you switch him like that, there’s a little bit that can hurt a kid. Again, what the team needs sometimes puts that young man in a position where he’s not as comfortable.‘So we’ve had a little bit more stability with the perimeter and offense really playing outstanding basketball. Tyler (Thornton) has given us good leadership. So the people around him have been stable and that helps him.’Duke has four players averaging double digits in scoring. Led by freshman Rivers, who averages 15 points per game and 41 percent from deep, the Blue Devils have potent scorers at each position.Though he wishes the production would be more consistent on a game-by-game basis, Krzyzewski is pleased with his team’s performance thus far in the season.‘Really, overall, I think these kids have done an unbelievable job, coming from the base that they had,’ Krzyzewski said. ‘None of them were star players for us last year.’For the Tar Heels and Blue Devils, who close out their seasons with a March 3 rematch, there would be no better momentum-builder than a win over their respective arch-nemesis.After UNC senior forward Tyler Zeller almost single-handedly fumbled the game away in the closing minute of the teams’ first game this season, the 7-foot, 250-pound big man will be relied on to dominate the paint.Larranaga said the Tar Heels are able to counterbalance a poor shooting performance with strength inside.‘I think Carolina is so big and they can miss shots and that can still be good offense for them,’ Larranaga said. ‘Just like the other day, they can crash the offensive boards and turn a miss into a make in a split second.’Luckily for the Seminoles, the Tar Heels’ schedule does not give them a chance to avenge their blowout loss to FSU earlier this season.But FSU will likely have to hand the Blue Devils another loss Feb. 23 if it wants to become the first team other than Duke or UNC since Wake Forest in 2003 to earn the sole distinction of ACC regular-season champion.Matchups against North Carolina State and Miami also provide challenges at the tail end of the Seminoles’ conference slate.But before those highly anticipated contests, and the looming conference tournament, Florida State must avoid falling in to what could be a trap game against Virginia Tech on Thursday.The Hokies, which FSU beat 63-59 earlier this year, are 14-11 overall and are led by junior guard Erick Green, who paces VT with 15.5 points per game.‘Obviously, everybody has tremendous respect for Green,’ FSU head coach Leonard Hamilton said Monday on the ACC coaches’ teleconference. ‘Like most teams they have guys who are stepping in and out of those led roles from game to game.‘They have some talented players, and you never really know who’s going to have a good night from night to night. That’s why you have to be prepared to go out and defend them, and everybody has to be on the defensive focus.’sebail01@syr.edu last_img read more

Stanford sweeps No. 6 USC

first_imgThe No. 6 USC women’s volleyball team had no answer for Stanford’s stonewall defense at the net, falling 3-0 Wednesday night at Maples Pavilion in Palo Alto in the first leg of their Northern California road trip.“We got some good performances today, but we didn’t also didn’t get some of the performances that we needed to get, and that really did us in tonight,” USC coach Mick Haley said. “We had too many hitting errors today, and you can’t do that against a good team.”Though the Women of Troy (16-3, 4-3) had 37 kills over the course of the match, they only accomplished that on a .085 hitting percentage. By comparison, Stanford finished with 44 kills with a .350 percentage.Freshman outside hitter Samantha Bricio and senior opposite Katie Fuller struggled to get USC’s offense going, combining for just 16 kills.The Women of Troy started out strong early in the first set with freshman outside hitter Samantha Bricio garnering four kills early.Stanford went on a run to go up 8-5. The Cardinal continued to control the net before sophomore setter Hayley Crone served back-to-back aces to tie it at 11.The first set continued to be a back-and-forth affair with USC, led by junior outside hitter Sara Shaw, who led players with 13 kills. Stanford, however, would pull away before finishing off the set 25-18.The Women of Troy couldn’t recapture their fast start from the last set, with the Cardinal capturing an early 7-2 lead.Following a stretch with two kills and a block by Jordan Burgess, Stanford extended their lead to a disheartening 12-4 score. The Cardinal continued to pour it on as Rachel Williams dominated the set at the net by putting the game almost out of reach at 19-8.The Women of Troy rallied late and got the score within striking distance behind three straight blocks from junior middle blocker Alexis Olgard, but the deficit proved too much and USC stumbled, 25-16.The third set looked very similar to the previous two. USC fell early and Stanford quickly stole the momentum to win the set 25-18.Despite the defeat, the Women of Troy will have to regroup to face California on Friday.“The expectation will be that we suck it up, work on what we need to work on in practice and go in their building and try to come out with a win,” Haley said. “It’s going to be tough playing a late game on the road, but it will be a good challenge,”Neil Jariwalla contributed to this story.last_img read more

Beat writers predict Syracuse’s fate against N.C. State

State (6-4, 2-4) in its penultimate conference game of the year. The Orange has been eliminated from automatic bowl eligibility, but could make a bowl if there aren’t enough six-win teams. SU would have to beat the Wolfpack and Boston College next week. Kickoff from Raleigh is at 12:30 p.m. and the game can be viewed on the ACC Network.

UW volleyball’s Caroline Workman to miss rest of season

first_imgSenior defensive specialist Caroline Workman will miss the remainder of the 2014 season after suffering a stress fracture in her left hip that will ultimately end her career, according to a statement from the team.An MRI Monday showed the results.The Los Angeles native saw increased court-time as this season progressed as a valuable member of the serving and back-court rotations. Workman recorded seven service aces this season, including a career-high two against Ball State in September. She played in 19 matches and recorded 37 digs.Last season, Workman missed the first 22 matches with a leg injury. After returning for five games, her season ended after falling ill in mid-November.Due to Workman’s senior standing, she will not be eligible to play again for Wisconsin. Fellow senior defensive specialist Kt Kvas is the likely candidate to fill the hole in the rotation.“It breaks your heart anytime a player’s career is shortened due to injury,” head coach Kelly Sheffield said in the statement. “Caroline has been knocked down a few times the past few years and has continually persevered and found her way back on the court – all with the typical positive Caroline spirit.  We are all happy that she will remain with the team and finish out her academic career as a Badger.”For her career as a Badger, Workman played in 83 matches with 30 starts. She finishes with 35 aces and 393 digs.Workman plans to graduate in May 2015 with a degree in life science communications.last_img read more

Rule 4 debacle results in “very lenient” punishment for trainer Evans

first_imgShare UK Racing pushes for drastic levy reforms as deep recession looms August 25, 2020 Submit GVC absorbs retail shocks as business recalibrates for critical H2 trading August 13, 2020 StumbleUpon FSB selects Glenn Elliott as new COO August 12, 2020 Related Articles The general consensus among racing fans and pundits is that trainer David Evans was right to describe his punishment from the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) as “very lenient.”The saga of events that landed Evans in trouble occurred on 9 January 2015, when the trainer had both Black Dave and Tango Sky scheduled to run in the same race, he then attempted to ‘nick a bit of extra value’ by delaying the declaration of Tango Sky as a non-runner in order to ensure that he got better value when he placed a £6,000 bet on Black Dave to win the race, a decision that had his selection been successful, would have gained Evans half a point on his selection. Although he failed to win the bet as his horse finished fourth, Evans sealed his own fate when in conversation with a phone trader at Ladbrokes, who questioned the reasoning behind Evans placing the largest bet he had ever placed on the account, he revealed that it was his intention to pull Tango Sky out of the race. Ladbrokes went onto share this information with the BHA later that day. The BHA initially ruled that the wrongdoing was worthy of a £4,000 fine, however as a result of Evans giving “honest answers at every stage of the investigation” the punishment was reduced to £3,000. Delivering the verdict, Tim Charlton QC underlined that “The sport of horse racing has a fundamental interest in honest and accurate betting markets.” Furthermore, a BHA disciplinary panel came to the conclusion that that the offence didn’t warrant Evans losing his license. A further disconcerting matter to arise from the case, was that upon discovering that the favourite Tango Sky was about to be pulled from the race, prior to enforcing procedures and informing the BHA of Evans’ wrongdoing, Ladbrokes also shortened the price of Tango Sky, something that Ladbrokes Coral’s Keith Page said was done to “bring it in line with industry prices.”Page continued: “There are two theoretical possibilities to the reason behind the price change for Tango Sky – either it was a very cynical price change in order to affect the subsequent Rule 4 or our traders were alerted to something not being right about the market, so they shortened the price of the market principals.”As a result of the price being shortened, the rule 4 deduction was 25p from every £1, as oppose to 20p, had Tango Sky retained its previous price of 7/2, something that will inevitably serve to heighten the anger of many punters.

‘I’m at peace, I’m ready to roll’ – Isaac Dogboe confident ahead of return to the ring tonight

first_imgGhanaian boxer, Isaac Dogboe, believes he is in the right shape physically and spiritually as he looks to return to the ring with a win later tonight.Dogboe faces American, Chris Avalos in a featherweight bout as he hopes to recover from his two losses against Emmanuel Navarrete.Dogboe’s two very high profile losses led to a short break from the sport but he returns to take on Avalos in a featherweight fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.There’s a lot of pressure on Isaac Dogboe to beat Avalos tonight as, despite his impressive 20-0-2 record, he has lost his last two fights.A third straight loss might raise serious doubts about whether the young boxer can ever recover his form.Navarrete beat Isaac Dogboe again in their rematch in 2019Dogboe, who has been training with Barry Hunter after his father, Paul Dogboe came in for a lot of criticism after his last bout, expressed his confidence ahead of the fight.“Right now I feel great, I’ve been with Barry since December of last year,” said Dogboe.“He’s seen me go through the process and everything, and I feel great. I feel great mentally, physically and spiritually. So right now I’m at peace, I’m just ready to roll. I can’t wait to get back in the ring.”Dogboe says his faith has kept him going despite the recent disappointments and will continue to drive him on.“It’s in my nature, I believe in faith. And I believe faith is what drives me. You might see confidence — but I see faith.”Barry Hunter at Lamont Peterson workout on March 26, 2015 at Bald Eagle Recreation Center in Washington DC. Photo by Delane Rouse/Rouse Photography GroupHunter praised Dogboe’s work ethic and his willingness to learn and regain his confidence.“That’s going to be key. Skillwise, yes, he can fight, but it’s like a baseball player who could’ve been a legend but got hit with a beanball. And then every time he stepped up to bat, he’s scared, or he flinches.”Dogboe was on a rapid rise in the sport before his losses to Navarrete and will hope to recover that winning feeling tonight.He definitely has to support of Ghanaians in this regard with Sports Minister, Isaac Asiamah wishing Dogboe well ahead of the bout, saying the boxer had learnt lessons from his losses to Navarette and will return stronger against Avalos.“Even though Isaac Dogboe lost the last two fights against Emmanuel Navarrete, ‘the royal storm’ has shown a lot of tenacity to return to the ring for a featherweight title and has learnt all the lessons to overturn his defeat.”“Ghanaians are very confident that Dogboe will come out victorious in this encounter and make Ghana proud after the bout.”last_img read more
