Badgers finish road trip against Bemidji State

first_imgAfter a disappointing 12-6-2 start before the holiday break last year, the Wisconsin women’s hockey team has started out even stronger in the 2013-2014 season. The Badgers are 12-2-2 this season with their only losses coming from top-ranked Minnesota back in early October.The Badgers will look to cap off their solid start to the season with a series against Bemidji State (7-7-2 WCHA 4-5-1) this Friday and Sunday. The series comes on the back of a six-game road trip for Wisconsin in which they played three teams currently receiving votes in the national polls (Boston University, North Dakota and Minnesota-Duluth), finishing with a record of 4-0-2.“I guess it’s certainly nice to get an opportunity to play at home again,” head coach Mark Johnson said in a press conference Monday afternoon. “It’s been a demanding and very satisfying six games on the road against great competition.”The Badgers haven’t played at home in nearly a month and the players are looking forward to the respite from bus rides, hotel rooms and rabid WCHA fans.“As cliché as it sounds, it’s so great to be home,” senior forward Madison Packer said. “Not just so that we can rest in our own beds and not have to travel, but to play in front of our own fans is just incredible.”Bemidji State’s 4-5-1 conference record places them in the middle of the pack in the race for the WCHA regular season title. The Beavers have key wins over Ohio State and Minnesota-Duluth this season. They also swept their series with Minnesota State in mid-November. Their most recent win over Minnesota-Duluth will certainly give Bemidji some confidence coming into Madison this weekend.Two key matchups define this game. One is between Bemdji State’s freshman goaltender Brittani Mowat against Wisconsin’s powerful offense.Mowat has been impressive in her freshman campaign, boasting a 2.1 goals against average, including two shutouts against Lindenwood and Minnesota-Duluth. Wisconsin is averaging three goals per game and has averaged 36 shots on the season. If Bemidji’s defense cannot control Wisconsin’s explosive offense, it could be a long night for the freshman goaltender.The other intriguing matchup will be between Bemidji’s top scorer Hanna Moher and Wisconsin’s top scoring defense. Moher, a sophomore forward, has seven goals on the year including four in conference play. Serving up many of her opportunities is fellow sophomore Kaitlyn Tougas. Tougas leads the team with six assists on the year, half of which were direct through Moher before finding the net. The Wisconsin defense, on the other hand, has been one of the most impressive defenses in the country. They are currently allowing just one goal per game, tied for the best in the country along with Minnesota.Unfortunately for the Badgers, they could be without star senior goaltender Alex Rigsby. During a game where Rigsby should have been celebrating setting the all-time record for wins at Wisconsin, she hobbled off the ice late in the second period with an undisclosed injury. Rigsby is still questionable for the Badgers’ game Friday. However, if unable to play this weekend, the team is still confident in freshman backup Ann-Renée Desbiens.Desbiens entered the game late in the second period after Rigsby went down with the injury, taking just a few warm up shots before being thrown into the game.“She played very well and gave us an opportunity to come away with a 1-0 victory,” Johnson said.Desbiens finished the game with a shutout and 13 saves. The performance was good enough to win Desbiens her first WCHA honor as the Rookie of the Week. In all, Desbiens has played 207 minutes this year and holds an impressive goals against average of .87. Whether Desbiens or Rigsby takes their position in front of the net this Friday, the team will be confident that whoever is between the pipes will play well.“Rigsby is obviously our rock,” Packer said. “She has had an absolutely incredible career here. However we’re confident with whoever is back there and [Desbiens] has proven herself so far this season.”Whoever wins those two battles will likely gain the upper hand this weekend when the Badgers meet the Beavers for the first time this season. As the first half of the season comes to a close, both Wisconsin and Bemidji State will be looking to finish 2013 strong and carry that success into 2014.“You want to finish [the first half of the season] off on a positive note,” Johnson said. “Depending on how this weekend goes, it has been a good first half up to this point.”last_img read more

US Coast Guard nabs smugglers and cocaine in Caribbean Sea

first_imgThe United States Coast Guard seized an estimated 2,606 pounds of cocaine and nabbed three smugglers during an exercise in the Caribbean Sea earlier this week.The Coast Guard said the three suspected smugglers have been handed over to the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agents here and that it had collaborated with the Caribbean Border Interagency Group (CBIG) law enforcement authorities in seizing the US$30 million cocaine shipment on Tuesday.“This interdiction is the result of ongoing multi-agency law enforcement efforts in support of Operations Full Court Press, Operation Caribbean Guard and the Caribbean Border Interagency Group,” the US Coast Guard said.Lt. Cmdr. Mario Gil, commanding officer of the Coast Guard Cutter, Joseph Tezanos, said ‘this case was a team effort and perfect example of Caribbean Border Interagency Group partners working in coordination with Joint Interagency Task Force – East to protect the people of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.“This case involved a high-speed chase of over 10 hours in challenging weather conditions that was possible thanks to the tenacity and persistence of the Tezano’s crew and of our partners, who are proud to have completed the mission and prevented a large quantity of drugs from reaching the streets,” he added.The US Coast Guard said the crew of two Customs and Border Protection Caribbean Air and Marine Branch maritime patrol aircrafts also responded and supported the interdiction by maintaining aerial surveillance of the go-fast vessel.“Throughout the multi-hour pursuit, the Coast Guard and CBP aircrews vectored-in the cutter Joseph Tezanos to the go-fast’s position,” it said.last_img read more

Alexander: What does Billie Jean King’s ownership stake in Dodgers mean?

first_img“We have a lot of listening to do first, a lot of learning, and then hopefully we’ll figure out how we can make the biggest impact to help them,” King said.“This happened pretty quickly. And you know Mark (Walter, chairman and managing partner) wants to do all kinds of stuff. So we’re going to sit down and learn about the organization, and what community outreach they have … We have a lot to learn, too, and hopefully, we can help make a really positive impact over time.”A fresh perspective never hurts. King, 74, has followed her Hall of Fame tennis career with a fairly extensive second act. She and Kloss, 62, run the Billie Jean King leadership initiative, are founding board members of the Elton John AIDS Foundation and serve on the executive committee of the Women’s Sports Foundation. And Kloss is the commissioner of World Team Tennis, of which King was one of the founders in 1973.“When you talk to people who are a little removed from your inner circle, sometimes you get the best ideas,” Kloss said. “So maybe by observing and being a little bit on the outside, we can have an idea or two that can make a difference.”But their biggest contribution might be just being who they are. Their presence reinforces a message to women, to the LGBTQ community, and to others who might wonder how they fit into society. The message: You are welcome here, and you belong.“We hope it will inspire future generations,” King said. “And I think it sends a strong message that we’re women, and we don’t mean just white women. We mean women and other people and other cultures that dream big.”King pointed to a study that showed that companies who practice inclusion and diversity do better on the bottom line, up to a 16 percent increase in profitability.“It makes a big difference,” she said. “Even one percent with the Dodgers would make a difference because they’re worth so much.”Related Articles PreviousBillie Jean King, left, and her partner Ilana Kloss take a selfie during Friday’s Dodgers game against the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium.

Billie Jean King, maybe sports’ foremost symbol of inclusion, diversity and equality as well as tennis excellence, now owns an ownership stake in the Dodgers. And it didn’t come totally out of, er, left field.“I grew up with the Dodgers,” King said Friday afternoon, wearing a No. 17 jersey on the field at Dodger Stadium. “They came here in 1958 when I was 14 years old, and my younger brother (former Giants, Astros and Blue Jays reliever Randy Moffitt) went on to play 12 years of major league baseball, so it’s in our blood. My dad was a scout for the Brewers for a while.“So it’s a dream come true.”How many kids growing up in Southern California have similar dreams of being involved somehow with their favorite team, only to go on to other things? Hundreds of thousands. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start And if it means, for example, that more women become involved in the sport in front offices or broadcast booths or maybe coaching or scouting staffs, how is that possibly a bad thing?But all of those possibilities are down the road. For the moment, the newest members of the Dodger ownership group seemed positively giddy Friday.“Driving in here, not as a fan but as an owner, I’m like, ‘Oh, my God!’” Kloss said.“Yeah,” King responded. “To see Vin Scully’s name (on the Ring of Honor)? That was great. And Jaime (Jarrín). I want to meet Jaime. … I think it’s so exciting, six (decades) of Spanish broadcasting. And he’s a young 82 years old.”“Wait a minute,” Kloss quipped. “Billie Jean’s not the oldest in the building anymore.”This could be fun.jalexander@scng.com@Jim_Alexander on Twitter And how many are able to circle back and ultimately fulfill that dream?

Life can indeed pull you in unexpected directions.)That said, now that King and her life partner, fellow former WTA player Ilana Kloss, are part of the Dodgers ownership group, what does it all mean?In practical, tangible terms, it’s hard to tell. Both women talked about bringing their past experiences to the table, but King said it is still too early to determine exactly how.center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire last_img read more

How ACC Network deal impacts Notre Dame’s football future

first_imgCHARLOTTE, N.C. — How will Notre Dame football’s relationship evolve with the ACC Network for the long haul?That’s one of the residual questions from the ACC Kickoff, where talk of the network’s Aug. 22 launch on ESPN dominated the two-day event. ACC commissioner John Swofford answered those questions, making it clear the Irish are a full-and-equal partner in the new venture. Notre Dame will maintain its five-game football arrangement with the other 14 football schools.   Getty Images https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/2f/1c/dabo-bk-081818-getty-ftrjpg_10pstjihb497n1mjncs3opkdj3.jpg?t=126506108&w=500&quality=80 How will the ACC Network affect that relationship? Notre Dame’s television agreement to have home games on NBC runs through 2025 and draws approximately $15 million per year. ESPN’s contract with the ACC runs through 2036; Swofford said if the Irish choose to join a conference in football, they would be contractually obligated to join the ACC.   While that’s not in the cards now, Swofford emphasized the benefits of Notre Dame’s membership. It gives the ACC a sixth private institution, and the Irish won the 2018 women’s basketball national championship.”It’s been a win-win for the ACC as well as for Notre Dame,” Swofford said. “Their membership in the league has been everything that we would have anticipated. It’s fully met expectations for us, and I think Notre Dame would tell you it has fully met expectations for Notre Dame. Institutionally it’s just a really good fit.”The reason for that is they bring just as much value to the ACC Network as any other school in that league,” he said. “The five games we play each year in football, any of those games that are in a home stadium of the ACC could be on the ACC Network.”MORE: Mack Brown sheds light on return to UNC, and exit from TexasIn 2019, that means the Nov. 9 matchup against Duke is slated to be on the ACC Network. The Sept. 2 opener at Louisville is on ESPN, and the home matchups against Virginia (Sept. 28), Virginia Tech (Nov. 2) and Boston College (Nov. 23) will be on NBC. In 2020, Notre Dame’s marquee matchup is a rematch with Clemson on Nov. 7 at Notre Dame Stadium.Speculation about Playoff expansion and realignment will always involve the Irish given they are a perennial power coming off their first playoff appearance. Notre Dame, however, does not play a conference championship like the other Power 5 conferences.   Swofford maintains the Irish are one of college football’s brands that will be a huge part of the ACC Network’s longterm plans. Swofford believes the Irish’s role within the conference is a story worth telling.  Could the network’s story influence Notre Dame football as college football continues to evolve into the next decade? That question will never have a definitive answer as long as the partnership exists.  “Possibly, yes,” Swofford said. “I’ve said many times we’ve been open to the conversation and I know our television partner would be as well. But again, I would say, because I don’t want it to be misconstrued, that it’s not something I would anticipate in the near future.” That’s the continued agreement for now, but Swofford answered the big question about the future.MORE: Dabo Swinney insists Clemson won’t shrink under bright lights of ACC Network”If Notre Dame reached a point where they were interested to join in football, we would readily have that conversation,” Swofford told Sporting News. “I don’t expect that to happen. When we made the arrangement with Notre Dame, some people thought, ‘Well it’s just a matter of time in football.’ I’ve never really thought that.”It’s the same open-door policy knowing the Irish would prefer not to work through — even in the College Football Playoff era.As it stands, the current arrangement has produced mixed results on the field. Notre Dame began playing a rotation of ACC schools in 2014. The Irish are 17-9 in those games, but that includes an 0-3 record against ACC teams ranked inside the top 10.Those were high-profile matchups against No. 2 Florida State in 2014, No. 7 Miami in 2017 and last year’s College Football Playoff semifinal at the Cotton Bowl Classic against No. 2 Clemson. Swofford, who reiterated that he respects Notre Dame’s independent status in the current college football landscape, said that Irish-Tigers matchup did not test his allegiances.  “You pull for the ACC team,” Swofford said. “With all respect to Notre Dame when it’s a football game, you lean toward in this case Clemson or the ACC team because it technically is a nonconference game. Notre Dame against everybody else I’m pulling for them.” last_img read more

Sub-state week is only a couple weeks away; plus high school action tonight, youth wrestling results

first_imgSouth Haven, Caldwell at Udall:  Teams playing: Caldwell, Dexter Cedar Vale, Flinthills, St. Paul, South Haven, Udall.Analysis: This will be a huge tournament for both the South Haven boys and girls who could get into the state tournament. South Haven boys are ranked No. 2. Udall is looming at No. 7. The two teams have knocked out the other the past two seasons in sub-state. So this is indeed a grudge match. The urgency is there for both teams as they are both senior laden.On the girls side, South Haven girls are not ranked, but are to be taken very seriously. They have a tough sub-state especially with Dexter Cedar Vale, St. Paul and Caldwell which all have winning records. •••••Wellington youth wrestling:Wellington youth wrestlers had a great day at the Mulvane Tournament on Saturday. Wellington had five champions: True DeJarnett, Zane Cornejo, Kyler Henry, Tyler Murray and Carter Burnett! Wellington’s lone second place finisher was Seth Brown and the third place finishers were Skyler Branam and Grant Glover. Talan Cantrell and Axel Norris both finished fourth. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow —  While the high school teams play tonight, the year-end sub-state basketball tournaments are looming. We have the most current updated sub-state analysis for Sumner County teams. Also, Wellington youth wrestlers traveled to Mulvane over the weekend. How did they do?…High School schedule tonight: Wellington at Wichita Collegiate. JV girls- 4:15 p.m. at Collegiate High School, JV boys- 5:45 p.m. at Collegiate Middle School, Varsity girls – 6 p.m. at high school, Varsity boys – 7:30 at high school.Sumner County games:Argonia at CaldwellBelle Plaine at Wichita IndependentGarden Plain at Conway SpringsSouth Haven at Oxford. Sub-state analysis: With the high school basketball season winding down, every game becomes critical as far as the eight-team sub-state seeding is concerned. The better the record the higher the seed. Here’s a quick preview of how the Sumner County teams are stacking up with their sub-states as of today. Oxford at Moundridge: Teams playing: Central-Burden, Canton-Galva, Cottonwood Falls, Berean Academy, Herington, Moundridge, Peabody-Burns, Oxford.Analysis: Central boys are ranked No. 7 and Moundridge is No. 9. Oxford has an outside chance and can be considered a dark horse. Moundridge girls at No. 6 appear to be the favorites. Wellington — Sub-state at Mulvane.  Teams playing: Wellington, Mulvane, Wichita Trinity, Clearwater, Winfield, Augusta, Rose Hill, Wichita Collegiate.Boys: Wellington appears to be an eighth seed in the tournament meaning it will play the top ranked team in sub-state in the first round. That could easily be Clearwater which currently has the top record. It is locked in a battle with Wichita Trinity and Mulvane which are right behind them by a game.If Wellington and Clearwater end up playing one another in the first round, it will be the fourth time the two teams will have met. They might as well share locker rooms.The records for this sub-state are as follows:Clearwater 12-4, Wichita Trinity 12-5, Mulvane 11-5, Winfield 9-7, Wichita Collegiate 9-7, Augusta 7-9, Rose Hill 6-10, Wellington 5-11.There are three game left for which the seedings are made (the final regular season game doesn’t count). Rose Hill, the closest team to Wellington in the standings, owns the tiebreaker with Wellington since the Rockets beat the Crusaders in the regular season.Girls: Like the boys, Wellington girls don’t appear to have any “must” games down the regular season stretch. They are currently seeded fourth and could get seeded higher. But the significance of doing so isn’t all that great. It is widely believed there is not much separation in the top four teams in this parity driven sub-state.The records are as follows: Mulvane 12-4, Wichita Trinity 12-5, Clearwater 11-5, Wellington 10-6, Winfield 5-11, Wichita Collegiate 4-12, Rose Hill 4-12, Augusta 3-13.This could be a sub-state Wellington could win. Wellington’s loss to Mulvane a couple of weeks ago, the current No. 1 seed, was a loss the Lady Dukes would like to have back. It most certainly wasn’t a case of them losing to the better team – at least on that night. Belle Plaine, Conway Springs at Conway Springs Teams playing: Belle Plaine, Conway Springs, Douglass, Garden Plain, Leon-Bluestem, Sedgwick, Whitewater-Remington, Wichita Independent.Analysis: Garden Plain girls are most certainly the favorites in this sub-state. On the boys side, Wichita Independent has a 13-4 record and is ranked ninth in the state. Argonia at South Barber:Teams playing: Argonia, Attica, Cunningham, South Barber, Norwich, Stafford. Analysis: On the girls side, Argonia and Norwich appear on a collision course for the sub-state championship. The two teams tangled against the other in the sub-state volleyball championship with Argonia winning. South Barber could be a dark horse here. Close Forgot password?

Thank you for your input. +2 Vote up Vote down MJW · 367 weeks ago You’re combining two different issues. One is whether honors classes should be weighted. The other is whether they should be offered in the first place. None of your poll choices reflects my opinion. Report Reply 0 replies · active 367 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down MJE · 367 weeks ago I don’t care whether or not honors classes are weighted, but I think dropping them altogether was a terrible move. Where does that fit in your poll choices? Report Reply 1 reply · active 367 weeks ago +3 Vote up Vote down Ted Logan · 367 weeks ago Choices like that might disprove the point he’s trying to sledgehammer home. Don’t forget this is not a scientific poll and the margin of error using the sample size is about 5 or 6 percent (possibly more if you consider the % voting for the last choice). Good luck with what ever presentation you are trying to put together! Report Reply +2 Vote up Vote down CueballSumnernewscow 94p · 367 weeks ago People. It’s a friendly little inner active Internet poll for the entertainment of Sumner Newscow readers. Nothing more. If I wanted to make it scientific, I’d hire Gallop. As far as agendas are concerned, I have none. I’m usually challenged to come up with a poll question. If you have an idea for a poll question I’m open for suggestions.

I graduated in the 60’s and we had 8 hr classes, what is so wrong with 8 hrs? We still had sports activity’s and kids still went to college. Block hours is a babysitter. Maybe some board members remembers that not sure if some of them go back that far.

How do you feel about the decision? Good idea. There was too much politics involved with Wellington’s system. Terrible idea. No weighted honors classes? Really???? I’m not sure. Let’s see what Principal Adams does as an alternative. I’m more worried about the overall USD 353 curriculum, not honors classes. It doesn’t matter. An education is only what a student puts into it.

Callum Smith defends WBA belt but toils against gutsy John Ryder

first_imgA sharp right and some thudding strikes in the sixth suggested Smith’s class was about to tell, but Ryder’s relentless grit was causing the champion issues.Good work on the ropes from close range would have had Ryder dreaming of an upset and the underdog upped the ante when trainer Tony Sims warned him Smith may try to steal it with the jab.Both men landed big hooks in a brilliant final round, but ultimately it was controversially deemed Smith had done enough to control the fight. Callum Smith scored a unanimous decision victory to retain his WBA super middleweight world title but was made to toil by a gallant John Ryder in Liverpool, England.The home-city fighter was an overwhelming favorite against Londoner Ryder but was troubled by the work rate of his tireless opponent, who gave up plenty in height and reach. Smith nonetheless moved to 27-0, with the judges scoring it 117-111, 116-112 and 116-112 in his favor, having clearly decided he landed the cleaner punches.Join DAZN to watch Ruiz vs. Joshua 2 and 100-plus fight nights a yearIt was hardly the statement performance Smith would have wanted as he chases career-defining fights with the likes of Saul “Canelo” Alvarez or Billy Joe Saunders, but a below-par showing here may actually make those bouts easier to make.”I knew he was a tough fighter, I knew it was a tough fight,” Smith said after the bout. “It wasn’t the best performance from myself, but I was due a bad one.”I’m a perfectionist and I always want to do the best as possible. Listen, I know how good I am, how good I can be.”I want the best names in the division. The fear brings out the best performance in myself.”SCORECARDS: 117-111, 116-112, 116-112 to the winner, #AndStill WBA World, WBC Diamond and Ring Magazine Super-Middleweight Champion… @CallumSmith23 #SmithRyder pic.twitter.com/oem3Q95JRb— Matchroom Boxing (@MatchroomBoxing) November 23, 2019Ryder vastly outperformed expectations and the fact there was a smattering of boos amid a partisan home crowd after the scores were read out told a story in itself.After an uneventful couple of opening rounds, Smith began to up the work rate and although the man nicknamed “Mundo” suffered a cut in the fourth, some clean hooks in the fifth had Ryder in trouble for the first time.last_img read more
