Gould inherits opening night Red River Tour win

first_imgGould was third across the stripe but inherited the win when Tyler Stevens and Chaz Baca were both disqualified in post-race tech for front suspension violations. “The top of the track stayed dominant. At the start of the night the track was fast all over but it moved up as the night went on,” he continued. “We had a good run up to third and at one point I thought I had a second place car. I just couldn’t get there.” William Gould saw his Red River Tour luck change with the $1,000 IMCA Modified win Wednesday night at Southern Oklahoma Speedway.

Round two of the five-night Lone Star Super Gas Red River Tour South presented by Smiley’s Racing Products is Thursday at Grayson County Speedway. “This was the first time we’ve even had a good run in the tour.

Runners brave heat for Fourth of July Around MDI Relay

first_img Latest Posts Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander. He began working for The American in August 2016. You can reach him via email at mmandell@ellsworthamerican.com. BAR HARBOR — Temperatures nearing 90 degrees on Mount Desert Island didn’t stop one of the area’s biggest races from taking center stage this Independence Day.Seven teams came to Hulls Cove on Wednesday for this year’s edition of the Fourth of July Around MDI Relay. It was the 16th running of the holiday event, which took runners across the island in the roasting heat.“Runners are runners,” said Gary Allen of Crow Athletics. “It’s kind of crazy, but they show up no matter what and run no matter what. There were points on that trail where the heat felt like it was 100 degrees, but everyone kept going.”The race started and finished at Mainely Meats in Hulls Cove. The route followed the one covered by the MDI Marathon with added stops in Tremont and Pretty Marsh on the west side of the island as well as some along the north side.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textCrow Athletics members set up signs with American flags all across the 61.97-mile route to mark each of the exchange zones. Distances throughout the route varied with stretches averaging 8.5-9 miles between the second and fourth legs to a more manageable 4.12 miles on the ninth and final leg.“I don’t really drive anywhere without seeing a potential race course somewhere,” Allen said. “It was a fun one to plan, and the runners have always seemed to really enjoy it. It makes for a good holiday.”Bar Harbor’s Rebeccah Geib runs during the Fourth of July Around MDI Relay. Geib ran the first four legs of the race for the Gnarwhals. CROW ATHLETICS PHOTOAlthough this year’s race had water available in the exchange zones, teams made their own plans to ensure proper hydration throughout the race. Ellsworth’s Andrew Kephart and Nick Brown, who competed as Team Pizza and Beer, had a truck with an ice-filled, cooler and cold towels drive alongside whichever member of their team was running.“It wasn’t easy with the heat, but it’s always a good run around the island,” Kephart said. “We took extra precautions to make sure we were even more prepared than usual.”Wes Danforth, Dan Ferguson, Dave Lin and Robby Morache of Team TBD finished first place in the overall competition with a winning time of 7 hours, 48 minutes, 35 seconds. Team Pizza and Beer took home second place with a time of 7:58:56.Kephart also had the most leg wins of any individual runner with three. He won the fourth, sixth and eighth legs of the race with times of 58:11, 36:06 and 36:56, respectively.“My personal pace was 6 minutes, 27 seconds [per mile], which was faster than expected,” Kephart said. “For us to do that well with just the two of us is something to be happy with.”Jarly Bobadilla, Candace Daley, Dylan Garceau, Eli Hartig, Rudy Kelley, Brandon O’Keefe and Andrew Simon earned third place for Barn Arts Running Club. The team had an overall time of 8:06:45 and an average pace of 7:48.Northeast Runners, Hounds without a Hare and The Lab Rats placed fourth through sixth, respectively. The Gnarwhals did not compete in the race’s final two legs, though the two-member team of Dylan Brann and Rebeccah Geib of Bar Harbor put together some solid times over the first seven.

Girls basketball Bees denied sectional Class AA title by C-NS

first_imgAll the elements were in place for a red-colored celebration Saturday night at Onondaga Community College’s Allyn Hall.At the center of it was the Baldwinsville girls basketball team, a special group that, in 2019-20, had won 20 of 21 games and needed just one more victory to secure the program’s first Section III title in 25 years.From loud fans to a robust student section to the presence of the famed B’ville Pep Band, the college gym had the feel of Baker High School and the Bees seemed quite ready to make its long-awaited ascent to the top. Tags: Baldwinsvillegirls basketball Except that the other side, the only one to beat B’ville this season, picked quite a time to do so again.Cicero-North Syracuse, the no. 2 seed, upended the top-seeded Bees 52-37 in the sectional Class AA final, hurting B’ville early with hot outside shooting and late with the work of forward Jessica Cook, with a ferocious defense the common element threading those two considerations.If the motivation inherent in pursuing a sectional title wasn’t powerful enough, the last team standing in the way was the only one to defeat B’ville this season.center_img And while the Bees avenged that 50-45 loss to C-NS on Jan. 17 when they played again a few weeks later at Baker High School, the Northstars were without two key players, Julia Rowe and Mackenzie White, that night.Both were here now, and Rowe, in particular, would play a starring role in B’ville’s eventual demise.Just like in those first two meetings, the Bees were determined to use its speed, athleticism and scoring depth to take charge while C-NS wanted Cook to dominate in the paint.All of that changed once the game tipped off, though, and in the first 90 seconds the Northstars raced in front 7-0 with a Rowe 3-pointer and back-to-back baskets from Cook and Alita Carey-Santangelo.C-NS would make B’ville pay dearly for the double teams they gave to Cook throughout the first half. Six different times, the Northstars converted from beyond the arc.No sequence was as important as what took place late in the second quarter. The Bees had cut C-NS’s lead to 21-19 when Alexandra Miller hit on a 3-pointer and followed with a driving layup.Then Abbee Norris hit a 3-pointer of her own and Gabby Hillman also striking from long distance just before the horn, capping an 11-2 run that boosted the Northstars to a 32-21 halftime lead,When B’ville scored the first six points of the third quarter, C-NS turned up its defensive pressure and blanked the Bees for the next six-plus minutes, a drought that stretched until the final period.By then, Cook was back in her usual form. Scoring 11 consecutive points in the fourth quarter, Cook worked her total to 20 points and put B’ville away.Ola Bednarczyk again led B’ville’s attack, the sophomore earning 15 points as fellow sophomore Sydney Huhtala got 10 points. But no other Bees player had more than the five points put up by Katie Pascale.It’s Pascale, the senior point guard, that will prove most difficult to replace in 2020-21. Jordan Roy also graduates, as does Megan Brecht, but Bednarczyk, Huhtala, Hannah Mimas and Kyrah Wilbur will lead a strong returning cast next winter.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story last_img read more

DIAMOND: Marty’s memorable Olympic performance will aid SU ice hockey program’s growth

first_imgStefanie Marty expected her Syracuse teammates to swarm her when she returned from the Olympics. Authentic Swiss chocolate has a way of attracting a crowd, and Marty brought enough back to feed an entire busload of college hockey players.Considering how fast the chocolate disappeared, it seemed like a reasonable thought. But the candy turned out to be just an added perk. The first Winter Olympian in SU history, fresh off a sterling performance on the world’s greatest stage, was back in town. Marty was the main attraction. Between bites of chocolate, of course.‘I got back and everyone says they are so proud of you,’ said Marty, a junior from Nussbaumen, Switzerland. ‘Sports in Europe don’t play a big role like here. You come here and there is hockey everywhere, sports everywhere. At home, people say, ‘Really, women’s hockey? That exists?’ No one really takes notice.”No one really takes notice of women’s ice hockey in Syracuse, either. At least at this point. The Orange completed its second season in existence Saturday by losing to No. 1 Mercyhurst in the CHA championship game. It finished the year at 18-17-1, doubling its win total from its inaugural campaign. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textUnderstandably, the newest team on campus demonstrated its improvement to little fanfare. But Marty’s departure may turn out to be the turning point for a program still searching for an identity. Marty tallied nine goals during the tournament in Vancouver, British Columbia. She became just the third woman to notch eight or more scores in a single Olympics.As her points total continued to climb, so did her celebrity. Television commentators began talking about Marty’s other life, as an assistant captain for Syracuse. Suddenly, SU became relevant worldwide in the realm of women’s hockey. For an infant program, Marty’s play in Vancouver, along with a few well-placed remarks by NBC announcers, could accelerate the Orange’s ascension to national prominence.‘It’s the best PR you can ask for — to have your school’s name broadcast during the Olympics,’ SU head coach Paul Flanagan said. ‘It’s NBC and MSNBC! Everybody is watching.’Flanagan spent all season preparing for the loss of his best player to the Winter Olympics. He came to dread the moment as it grew near. It was the timing of it. And the inevitability. Marty was leaving for Vancouver during a crucial stretch of games at the end of the Orange’s schedule, with postseason seeding on the line. Her allegiances remained with the Swiss national team, for whom she has played since 2003. The prospect of playing in her second Olympics was too alluring to sacrifice. Syracuse would have to trek on without her.Not an easy feat, considering her talent. Marty tied for the SU team lead in goals (16) despite playing in just 30 games. Marty’s absence felt interminable at the time. The season does not take a break during the Olympics. This is not the NHL. She said most American and Canadian players in her position leave school for an entire year to practice with their national teams. Things in Switzerland don’t quite work that way.She left Syracuse for a month. The Orange lost a pair of games to CHA foes Niagara and Robert Morris by a single goal during that stretch. One more win would have propelled SU to a second-place finish in the conference. Flanagan couldn’t help but wonder what could have been. ‘For us, a younger program, it’s harder when a key player leaves for a few weeks,’ Flanagan said. ‘There’s a pretty big gap there. We knew she was going to be leaving, but it’s tough to prepare.’Marty tried her best to stay connected with Syracuse from Vancouver. She e-mailed back and forth with friends and teammates whenever she could between games and practices. Even if she couldn’t follow each game, she didn’t forget about her Orange teammates. The day after the Swiss team was eliminated from medal contention, ultimately finishing fifth overall, Marty went out shopping in Vancouver, searching for gifts to bring home.Despite her best intentions, it was hard not to be swept into an Olympic fervor. Even though she played in Torino, Italy, in 2006, the Vancouver experience was more exciting.‘Hockey is bigger in Canada than in Europe,’ Marty said. ‘The fans were just crazy the whole time. Personally, I was able to enjoy it more.’To Marty’s teammates, not having their best player for a month almost didn’t matter. Seeing Marty play on the world’s grandest stage made it worthwhile. A team comprised of players almost exclusively from the U.S. and Canada all cheered together for Switzerland when Marty walked with her country in the opening ceremonies.And in the back of their minds, they recognized what Marty’s performance could mean for the future of the program. If SU can do this well this quickly without an established track record to attract recruits, imagine the possibilities in the future. Marty’s Olympic experience can lead to a batch of standout prospects.‘Every time she scored everyone got more excited. She’s like famous now,’ senior defender Gabby Beaudry said. ‘… Obviously it’s epic, and she’s getting our name out there, and with class. It’s awesome.’Suddenly, national contention doesn’t seem as far away. Marty may be just the beginning.Jared Diamond is the sports columnist for The Daily Orange, where his column appears weekly.

first_imgAfter a fantastic start to their season, the University of Wisconsin volleyball team looks to continue their success this weekend at their first home game of the 2017 school season.The Badgers (5-0, 0-0 Big Ten) are hoping to continue the success that they have been building over the past couple of weekends. From a successful Kansas State tournament to home matchups against North Carolina and Louisville, Wisconsin has been able to show that they are a dominant force on the court.One of the reasons for this display is none other than freshman setter Sydney Hilley. The powerhouse has been setting up Wisconsin in the best ways possible, and has managed to earn two Big Ten honors in a matter of four weeks.Volleyball: Team remains strong despite losing best players from previous yearThe University of Wisconsin volleyball team had been a dream team in the Big Ten, but when four key seniors Read…Along with Hilley, Kelli Bates and Dana Rettke have been leading the team to some huge victories this season. The Badgers have been doing so well that they’ve managed to earn the No. 6 ranking nationally this week. This weekend, the undefeated Badgers welcome Lipscomb (4-2) and Texas A&M (2-2) to the Fieldhouse, with tournament play starting Thursday night at 7 p.m. and ends Saturday night at 7 p.m..Texas A&M has had a nice start to their season this year, taking down Sam Houston State and VCU at their home tournament. When the Aggies hit the road this year, however, they began to struggle against some of college volleyball’s most fearsome opponents.The Aggies first away game was against Penn State, who was ranked No.5 at the time. The game ended with a 3-2 win for the Nittany Lions.After that weekend, Texas A&M had the challenge of taking on the defending national champions, Stanford. It appeared as though the West coast team was too much for the Aggies, and Stanford swept the match with a 3-0 win.Wisconsin volleyball dominates at K-State invitationalThe University of Wisconsin women’s volleyball team remains undefeated, moving to a 5-0 record off a very successful tournament at Read…Lipscomb has been fairing much better than Texas A&M this year, with only two losses on their season record thus far. The Bisons even managed to defeat No. 24 Arizona during a tournament earlier this year.This weekend is sure to be an interesting one for the Badgers, as they welcome two very capable teams to the Fieldhouse for what is sure to be a very intense weekend battle.

Asante Kotoko vs Liberty Professionals Preview

They have conceded 10 goals which cancel out the 10 goals they have scored. The Dansoman lads must work on their defense if they want to leave Kumasi with at least a point.The Porcupine Warriors have also scored 10 goals, representing an average of 1.1 in each of the nine matches played by both teams so far.Asante Kotoko would start as favourites based on both form and past meetingslast_img read more

Wenger vows to lift Arsenal after latest blow

first_imgArsenal manager Arsene Wenger is “100 per cent determined” to maintain their fight to remain in the top four but knows his side have to start playing better first.The Gunners were taken apart at Goodison Park where Steven Naismith and Romelu Lukaku put Everton 2-0 up at half-time before former Toffees midfielder Mikel Arteta scored an own goal after the break.It put the Merseysiders within one point of their fourth-placed opponents with a match in hand at home to Crystal Palace, placing Arsenal’s chances of a 17th successive season in Europe’s elite club competition in serious jeopardy.”I am absolutely 100% determined to fight to make the top four but it will be difficult,” said Wenger. “We have still a programme that is feasible but we have to first focus on the quality of our performances before we dream of places.”Let’s get back to playing better than that. Our performance was not convincing, not defensively, not offensively.”We had a lot of the ball and were not really dangerous. At the moment we lack a bit of confidence to be dangerous and lack penetration as well.”You feel from outside that the penetration and incisiveness of our games is missing. “Everton were better and deserved to win. It was a very disappointing result and a very disappointing performance.”We have to regroup and get back to basics.”The fight is very open and is depending not only on us. Everton are in a strong position but we have confronted that before and it is how we respond.”Wenger was asked whether fear was gripping his side as their previously unchallenged place in the top four came under threat.”I don’t know. It is very difficult to identify that it is fear,” he added. “Our big team defeats away from home have taken something of our charisma from the team. Is that belief? Is it fear? Is it confidence?”I wouldn’t question the spirit of this team. They are focused and want to do well but they have lost something on the confidence front.”last_img read more

Earl Thomas doesn’t regret flipping off Pete Carroll: ‘We didn’t see eye to eye on a lot of things’

first_img Thomas has an opportunity to play against the Seahawks this season; Baltimore will travel to Seattle in Week 7. Thomas, 30, signed a four-year, $55 million contract ($32 million guaranteed) with the Ravens on March 13 after becoming a free agent in the offseason. He told Anderson he was ready to sign a one-year contract with the Chiefs — he even told coach Andy Reid he was coming to Kansas City — before his agents informed him of the Ravens’ offer. Thomas was in a contract dispute with the Seahawks at the time, and he told Anderson that Carroll spoke with him about a possible new deal days before Thomas suffered a leg fracture in Week 4 against the Cardinals. Thomas added that Carroll’s actions right after the injury didn’t seem genuine MORE: Titans reportedly give Kevin Byard record contract for safeties”When Pete came (over) trying to act like he was concerned, I was like, ‘You won, bro,’ and just kept it moving,” Thomas told Anderson.Thomas gave Carroll the finger as he was being carted off the field. The NFL fined Thomas $13,369 for the gesture, which it termed “unsportsmanlike conduct.”Thomas also told Anderson his working relationship with Carroll was in decline.”It was just we didn’t see eye to eye on a lot of things, like work ethic,” he said. “Sometimes I didn’t want to practice, especially when they weren’t paying me. I wasn’t practicing like that and he wasn’t feeling it. The gap just . . . spread.”Here’s my sit-down w/ #Ravens S Earl Thomas.

On the other hand, he doesn’t feel remorse for making the gesture.”Because I felt (Carroll) wasn’t being honest with me,” Thomas told ESPN’s Josina Anderson in an interview that aired Wednesday.last_img read more
