Vandewater – Record-breaking weekend for UW

first_imgThe UW softball team wrapped up tournament play on a good note Sunday, winning its final three contests at the University of South Florida Speedline Invitational. The weekend was highlighted by two record-setting performances from seniors Sam Polito and Eden Brock.Polito scored the 113th and 114th runs of her career Sunday, and in doing so, permanently etched her name into UW’s record books. The centerfielder became Wisconsin’s all-time leader in runs scored, eclipsing the previous record held by Kris Zacher.In the circle, Eden Brock tied her career high for strikeouts set earlier this year, fanning 14 Golden Flashes in her complete-game, three-hit win over Kent State. Brock then started UW’s next game, tossing three shutout innings at Indiana before giving way to Letty Olivarez.”We did a great job all around,” assistant coach Barb Sherwood said. “Our kids played really well, pitching and hitting. Winning 3-1 against a good Kent State team was a great win for us, and beating Indiana is always nice.”The Badgers (15-7) had barely gotten off their plane when they were scheduled to compete in a double-header at the Stetson Round Robin in DeLand, Fla. The Badgers defeated Maine 7-2 and followed that up with a 1-0 victory over Stetson. A throwing error by Stetson catcher Blythe Golden in the seventh inning allowed Katie Hnatyk to score from third, and freshman Letty Olivarez pitched seven strong innings for the win.Following the round-robin sweep, the Badgers headed west to Tampa and the Speedline Invitational. UW dropped its first two tournament games at the Speedline Invite, getting shut out by Ball State 3-0 and losing to South Florida 4-2. Ball State pitcher Elizabeth Milian baffled Badger bats in the first game, with a Polito single being the only blemish on her one-hit gem.”They played their hearts out against us,” Sherwood said. “They played a complete game and were really perfect against us defensively. Offensively, they were clutch, and their pitcher did a fabulous job keeping us off balance.”But UW seemed to regain its balance by the time it matched up against Dartmouth. Joey Daniels’ three-run bomb sparked Wisconsin’s offense, and the Badgers pounded the Big Green 6-0. Wisconsin won its final three games of the tournament, beating Dartmouth, Kent State and Indiana by a combined score of 14-1, and won the No. 2 seed, single-elimination bracket.Eden Brock finished the tournament with 23 1/3 innings pitched, including 17 in a row at one point, and improved her record to 8-4. Brock was named Big Ten Pitcher of the Week two weeks ago, and based on her last handful of outings, she might just merit the award again. She has allowed just two earned runs in her last 27 2/3 innings pitched, and has further lowered her ERA to 1.62. At the plate, Katie Hnatyk hit her ninth homer of the season to lead the charge against Kent State, and third baseman Ricci Robben continued her hot streak, going 4-for-4 with two doubles in Wisconsin’s 5-0 win over Indiana. Robben hit a team-best .385 at the Invite, and her .345 average overall is second only to Hnatyk (.384) on the Badgers.Wisconsin is off until it plays host to Loyola of Chicago Tuesday, March 27, at Goodman Stadium.last_img read more

What we learned from Syracuse basketball’s 75-61 win against Boston College

first_imgCHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – A one point Syracuse lead in the second half ballooned to 17 in a matter of minutes and Syracuse pulled away from lowly Boston College on the road. The Orange (18-8, 8-5 Atlantic Coast) has now won five consecutive games and eight of its last nine after Sunday’s 75-61 win over the Eagles (7-18, 0-12) at Conte Forum.Here’s what we learned from the Orange’s 14-point win.Tyler Lydon can exploit a mismatch with relative easeWith six inches on Eli Carter, all Lydon needed was the ball and one dribble. The freshman raised his right hand and caught an entry pass from Malachi Richardson before a quick backdown move and jump-hook accounted for the first two of Lydon’s career-high 20 points.The next time Lydon received the ball in the post, seven-footer Dennis Clifford slid over to help and Lydon passed the ball back out. But just minutes later, Lydon found himself guarded by 6-foot-5 Garland Owens and a deft floater was all he needed for another seamless two points. When Lydon faced players he should handle, he did.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Me and Coach (Autry) have been working on that a lot,” Lydon said. “They put a small guy on us and they switched so we were just trying to be aggressive.”Malachi Richardson’s little bit of history is indicative of his expansionThe possession right after Malachi Richardson hit a 3 to put Syracuse up four in the second half, he sliced through the lane and threaded a no-look pass to Lydon for a two-handed slam.It accounted for one of his five assists on the day, his second consecutive conference game with five or more helpers. It’s the first time this season that an SU player has registered five or more assists in back-to-back league games.The freshman has displayed an ability to not only finish from beyond the arc and at the rim, but sift through gaps in the defense to setd up teammates as well. It’s an added branch to his game that he’s flashed at times but that’s now appearing more consistently as Syracuse continues its recent tear.“He’s a very good passer and he can make plays and that’s important for us,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “He’s handling the ball more. He’s doing more with the ball.”Syracuse fans travel well, especially to Boston as Boeheim recallsTucked into a corner in the upper level of Conte Forum, a cluster of Syracuse fans gave Sunday the feel of an SU home game, just in a much smaller arena.Boeheim estimated that 75 percent of the crowd was pro-Syracuse and intermittent chants of “Let’s go Orange” dotted the afternoon while no chants from the home team were audible from down on the court.“We always get people here and we always have but there was really a lot of people here today,” Boeheim said. “…I noticed it early and then during, well, you shouldn’t be thinking about those things anyway. Then when I looked around, there had to be 6,000 Syracuse people here today. It was quite a show.” Comments Published on February 14, 2016 at 5:50 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Rose Bowl-winning kicker Matt Boermeester is off the football team, no longer enrolled at USC

first_imgMatt Boermeester, who kicked the game-winning field goal to secure the Rose Bowl victory for USC last season, is officially off the football team. Boermeester was not listed on the roster as the Trojans began fall camp at Howard Jones Field on Saturday.A USC spokesperson also confirmed that Boermeester is no longer enrolled as a student at the University, but did not elaborate.Boermeester, a redshirt junior last season, was suspended in February for a “student code of conduct” matter.“Student disciplinary records and proceedings regarding any matter of student conduct are confidential and protected by law,” the University said in a statement back in February regarding Boermeester’s suspension. “While this student code of conduct issue is being investigated, the student will not be representing the University as a member of its athletic team.”USC has specified neither the nature of the student conduct issue nor the results of any investigations into the matter. When asked about general procedures in handling student-athlete misbehavior, a USC spokesperson said in March that the athletics department defers to student affairs in handling student conduct cases to assure that “student-athletes are treated like all students and do not receive special treatment because of their athletic standing.”Boermeester was 18-of-25 last season on field goals, with his USC career culminating in the 46-yard field goal to topple Penn State in the final seconds of the Rose Bowl. Redshirt freshman Michael Brown is currently the only remaining kicker on the roster, though incoming freshman Chase McGrath is expected to earn a spot alongside Brown.Boermeester’s release from the team marks the fourth instance in the last year in which disciplinary actions were taken against USC football players for student conduct code violations. The previous three instances involved linebackers Osa Masina, Don Hill and Jabari Ruffin. Masina was removed from USC after being charged with one count of rape and two counts of forcible sodomy in September. Hill was also taken off the team in September for his role in the Masina case. Ruffin was removed from the program in October for an unspecified student conduct issue after being given a half-game suspension in September for stomping on the groin of an opposing player in last season’s opener against Alabama.last_img read more

Powered by Firework Even though Arsenal performed nice in their Sunday Premier League face off against Aston Villa, the main talking point of the match has been the hysterical play acting by their defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos, who is now the latest target for slacking on Twitter.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Reuters/TwitterInto the 43rd minute, the Greek center back was on a tussle against the Villa forward Wesley Moraes, and grabbed the Brazilian’s leg after going down, and soon after, fell down on the ground covering up his face as The Lions forward only had his knee brushing against him.The video of the hilarious showcase of charade was posted on Twitter via @chyngyozil.

You’re a wheezing old man, and you’ve just tried to get Wesley sent off. He won’t forget that.”“Sokratis got bullied, punched Wesley, and now feigns injury to try and get him sent off. Dirtiest player in the league after David Silva.” another person twitter.Express sports writer Matt Maher also went it: “Embarrassing from Sokratis, who clutches his face in an attempt to get Wesley sent-off (zero contact).”Sokratis joined Arsenal in 2018, following a £17.6 million transfer deal from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.The match at Emirates Stadium saw Emery’s boys securing a 3-2 victory, with goals from Nicolas Pépé, Calum Chambers and Aubameyang.Aston, although took the lead in the 20th minute with John McGinn’s score, only managed to net in a second one via Wesley himself.

Sports Briefs

first_imgGENEVA (AP): Michel Platini will run for FIFA president and plans to announce his intentions this week. Two officials familiar with Platini’s plans have told the Associated Press (AP) that the FIFA vice-president has made a decision to try to succeed Sepp Blatter. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because Platini has not yet announced his candidacy. The officials said that the UEFA president and former France great has been encouraged to run by most leaders of FIFA’s continental confederations. Five of the six continental leaders, including Platini, were in St Petersburg, Russia, last week for FIFA meetings and the 2018 World Cup qualifying draw. Platini declined to discuss his ambitions when asked by the AP in St Petersburg. Mexico sack Herrera MEXICO CITY (AP): Mexican national team coach Miguel Herrera was fired yesterday following a television reporter’s claim that the man known as ‘El Piojo’ punched him. The ouster came just two days after Herrera led Mexico to victory in the CONCACAF Gold Cup. But Decio de Maria, who on Saturday becomes president of the Mexican Soccer Federation, said the incident with the journalist was not in keeping with “the spirit of fair and respectful competition” the organisation espouses. “Our values, our principles, are above any result,” de Maria said at a news conference. “In our profession, our industry, the matches are never over, and as public figures who represent an institution, we must be absolutely clear on that.” There was no comment from the coach on his firing, nor has he said anything publicly on the incident with the reporter. Herrera is the latest to depart from what has become a revolving-door job since Ricardo La Volpe of Argentina was the last to complete a four-year World Cup cycle as head of the team, known as ‘El Tri’. Mexico have burned through 10 head coaches in the nine years since La Volpe departed after the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Bayern sign Chile’s Vidal MUNICH (AP): Bayern Munich completed the long-anticipated transfer of Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal from Italian champions Juventus yesterday. The Bundesliga champions said Vidal signed a four-year deal, with an option foranother season. “I wanted to take another big step in my career,” Vidal said in a brief interview on Bayern’s website. “I want to develop further as a player, and I want to win important titles, such as the Champions League. And I see Bayern as the best opportunity for that.” Bayern did not disclose the financial details of the contract. But Italian media reports suggested Bayern paid US$39.5 million with final cost rising to US$44 million with bonuses, to bring the 28-year-old Vidal back to the Bundesliga. If correct, the figures would make Vidal one of the most expensive Bundesliga transfers. Nadal eases past Verdasco HAMBURG, Germany (AP): Top-seeded Rafael Nadal overcame a sluggish start to beat Fernando Verdasco 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 in the first round of the Hamburg Open yesterday. Nadal was playing his first match since losing to Dustin Brown in the second round of Wimbledon. The former No. 1 in the world has fallen to No. 10. In the all-Spanish match, Nadal appeared to have trouble adjusting to clay and finding his timing. But his game picked up noticeably in the last two sets. Verdasco saved one match point, but then hit the net with a backhand to hand Nadal the win. Nadal’s last match on clay was the quarter-final loss to Novak Djokovic at the French Open.last_img read more
