Swimming & Diving Breaks Seven Records On Day One of Sewanee Invitational

first_imgSewanee Invitational Day One Results (pdf)SEWANEE, Tenn. – The 10th-ranked University of West Florida Swimming & Diving team won gold in all nine events on the first day of the 15th annual Sewanee Invitational at the Fowler Center Pool on Friday. The Argos scored 634 points on the night, well ahead of Sewanee’s 213. Emmanuel College was third with 157 and Mars Hill was fourth in the eight-team event with 145. Multiple winners for the Argos included junior Monica Amaral, senior Peggy de Villiers, freshman Pia Hulley, sophomore Madeline Pitt and sophomore Gabrielle Spangenberg. “The girls did a nice job of racing,” head coach Andrew Hancock said. “They are starting to practice everything we’ve been working on and are doing exactly what we need to do at this point in the season.” Amaral claimed both diving events by large margins, recording a meet and pool record in both the 1-meter with a 276.85 and 3-meter with a 296.70. Senior Josie McKee claimed runner-up honors with a 229.70 in the 1-meter and 253.10 in the 3-meter. In addition to Amaral’s and McKee’s dominance on the boards, freshman Mariah Constantakos had a breakout meet and posted career scores of 220.50 in the 1-meter and 245.80 in the 3-meter. De Villiers touched first in the 50 Backstroke (28.35), 100 Individual Medley (1:02.73) and anchored the 100 Free Relay for UWF. The 100 IM was added to the New South Intercollegiate Swimming Conference program this season, meaning the mark now stands as the UWF record. Hulley opened the evening by leading off the first place 100 Free Relay group. Three events later she swam consecutive races, taking fourth in the 100 IM before reaching the top of the medal stand less than 10 minutes later in the 50 Butterfly with a 27.78. Pitt established a new meet and pool record in the 1650 Free with a 17:42.96 and anchored the 100 Medley Relay for a pair of first place finishes. Spangenberg’s pool record swim in the 50 Breaststroke of 31.37 eclipsed a mark that had stood since 2011. She nearly out-touched de Villiers in the 100 IM, connecting with the wall just .03 after her teammate. The competition will conclude on Saturday with day two action beginning at 10:00 a.m. 2015 Sewanee InvitationalDay One Results – through 9 events1.

PNGNRLC to host games on Saturday

first_imgBy KEVIN TEME The board of the PNG National Rugby League competition has opted to allow the Digicel Cup games to be played on Saturday. PNGNRL Administrator Stanley Hondina revealed this during the press conference held at the Sir John Guise Stadium in Port Moresby on Wednesday this week. Hondina said the tradition of hosting the Digicel Cup games every Sunday year in and out might be changed due to various unplanned activities in the year and also considering the demand from fans right across the country that wants to watch the games on Saturdays. Hondina in announcing the changes for this weekend’s games said Sunday was a day originally set for all the Digicel cup games but they had opted for a change where they see fit. Hondina gave an example of the game between Agmark Gurias and Enga Mioks last weekend where both teams agreed to play on Saturday. “When we asked both franchises to host the game on Saturday, they agreed. This is because one of our sponsors, SP Brewery had their trade show or something on Friday and asked us to host the game on Saturday in Kokopo and when we asked both Gurias and Mioks they both agreed and it went successfully,” Hondina said. This weekend will not be different when PRK Muruks play host to Bintangor Goroka Lahanis on Saturday at the Minj rugby league oval in Jiwaka Province. “This game was supposed to be in Mendi but has to be moved to Minj due to the SOE in Southern Highlands Province and will be played on Saturday. Sunday will be another interesting double header also in Minj,” Hondina said. The double header will be played between Waghi Tumbe hosting the EPG Enga Mioks while Kroton Hela Wigmen takes on Simbu Warriors (read separate story on this). Hondina said, “It was a traditional Sunday thing but look, we are still trying to work out the appetite of the game and you know if the crowd turns out well on Saturdays then that will be an idle day to host the game as well.”last_img read more

5 England players to watch at the World Cup

first_imgThe two years since then have allowed Hodgson to implement his own plans, but he will head into the World Cup still relying on a core group of veterans alongside some tournament newcomers.Here are five England players to watch:___WAYNE ROONEYWayne Rooney, the one truly world class striker in the England squad, has yet to deliver at a World Cup, failing to score in 2006 and 2010.But with 38 goals in 89 international matches, Rooney is only 11 from matching Bobby Charlton’s England record.A relief for England coach Roy Hodgson is that the Manchester United striker has settled his club future going into the World Cup by signing a new contract. A concern for Hodgson is just how Rooney might be affected by United’s lackluster season by the time he gets to Brazil.“He has got a difficult job on his hands because they’ve had a disappointing season,” Hodgson said.___STEVEN GERRARDAs the team’s leader, Steven Gerrard is an automatic starter, and rightly so.“Magisterial” is how England coach Roy Hodgson views a player who remains as influential at 33 but realistically facing one final shot at the World Cup.Hodgson will be hoping Gerrard is not affected by Liverpool falling just short in the Premier League title race after a costly mistake by the midfielder in the run-in against Chelsea.Thriving in a deeper role with rejuvenated Liverpool, Gerrard will come up against the master in that position in the World Cup opener: Italy midfielder Andrea Pirlo.Gerrard will match David Beckham’s record of 115 appearances for an England outfield player by playing in the three warm-up matches and three group stage games.___JOE HARTThe 2010 World Cup will be remembered in England for goalkeeper Robert Green allowing Clint Dempsey’s long-range strike to slip through his hands.In 26-year-old Joe Hart, England coach Roy Hodgson has a more reliable stopper between the posts, despite mishaps seeing him dropped by Manchester City for a time this season.The blunders were uncharacteristic for one of England’s most reliable performers at Euro 2012, but Hart went on to help City win the Premier League.“He made a couple of mistakes in (City) games, his coach decided to leave him out, but luckily he’s come back and played well,” Hodgson said.___JACK WILSHERETaking Jack Wilshere to Brazil could be a risk. Since breaking his left foot during England’s 1-0 win over Denmark in March, Wilshere has only managed two substitutes’ appearances for Arsenal, amounting to around an hour of competitive football in May.But Hodgson is gambling on the 22-year-old Wilshere’s fitness in the hope the energetic midfielder can provide the dynamism and creativity missing at Euro 2012 when the midfielder was out through injury.___ADAM LALLANAEngland coach Roy Hodgson sprang a surprise by calling up Adam Lallana for the November friendlies against Chile and Germany, and the versatile attacking midfielder retained his place in the squad for the draw with Denmark in March.Not only should the 25-year-old Lallana make the World Cup squad but, if he maintains his lively goal-scoring form for Southampton, is a strong contender to start for England and provide an element of unpredictability the team desperately needs in Brazil.last_img read more

Man United player explains why what’s said in press and what…

first_imgMost of the questions were about the player’s debut for Brazil, as this is the first time he will be playing for the country since his appearances for the U-23 squad.“I think I can play as the first midfielder, second or number 10. I will give my best and I am very happy. I want to win this position,” said Andreas (via Globo Esporte).Regarding his choice to play for Brazil instead of Belgium and the World Cup clash between the two, he said: “I always had in my head that I wanted to defend Brazil. It was painful to see the game, I was injured, being treated in Belgium, and it was hard to see the game there. But we have to raise our heads, look ahead and work hard.”Embed from Getty ImagesAndreas gave the press conference along with the Everton star Richarlison. They were both asked about Premier League football, and when explaining the league’s peculiarities, the Manchester United player said why the striker has been doing well for the Toffees.“So, it’s like he said, the feature of the Premier League is that they are very fast, very strong. And also as he said, he adapted very quickly because he is a great player, very fast, very intelligent, and knows how to score. And they like that a lot. And for me as a midfielder, I have to adapt now, so playing at Manchester the first games were good for me, and now I just want to keep that level.”The press conference also had to have a question about José Mourinho. But Andreas was quick on dismissing any controversies and said that the atmosphere is absolutely fine at Manchester United.“No, there are a lot of things out the press saying that things are not going well. But we in the dressing room at Manchester United are all calm, everything is good. The group is a great group, and we’re always focused.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoDating.comTung Chung is actually full of single men.
