All is now set for Camperdown Classic

first_imgCourtney Brooks, Camperdown Classic committee member and chief official, says the unavailability of the Stadium East as a warm-up area for this year’s meet will pose some difficulties for the annual event, but assured that they have plans in place to ensure that the meet will run as smoothly as possible.Due to renovation work, which began at the facility in early January, the Stadium East complex will not be in use for the meet, which is set for tomorrow. Brooks says that they have made alternative arrangements so that athletes can get ­sufficient time and space to warm up.Specific areas will be set aside for warm-up but Brooks said that if teams failed to cooperate and follow guidelines, it could lead to things getting chaotic at the venue.“Things are shaping up (for the meet). It was slow at first and we had to extend the closing date. The closing date was last Sunday, but we extended it to midnight on Tuesday. The only drawback we are having is that we are not able to use the Stadium East. Everything has to be done inside the Stadium and the warm-up area is limited. That’s the obstacle we are ­facing now,” he said.Organisers have appealed to the coaches to assist them to keep things in order because of the limited space. “Sometimes there are more than a hundred athletes for heats, and if all of these athletes are using the warm-up area at the same time, there is going to be chaos. So we are pleading with them (coaches) to just send down the representatives for each class at the appropriate time and not all at once,” Brooks said.The warm-up areas will be located in the area above the cycle track beyond the finish line and also in the area just below that. There will be also be another warm-up area to the north of the National Stadium from the 200 metres start around to the 100 metres start. “We will use those areas to do the warm-up. I don’t know if they will give us permission to use the inner field itself. I am not sure as yet. But it is something we will try to avoid because you don’t want to damage the football field,” he said.Meanwhile, Brooks said that British sprinting star Zharnel Hughes’ announcement that he would open his season at the meet has given them a massive boost, and organisers hope that that will motivate other stars to attend the meet.“Hughes is coming out and it has generated some interest. His participation will draw out some other big names. But we are also expecting some big names from Racers, Akon, and Sprintec Track Clubs. Last year we had a ­contingent from India. This year, we have a group ­coming from Cayman. Jordan Byles, who has done quite well in the US (junior level), will be coming, and there is a 12-year-old athlete (Adriana Kalymialaris) from Finland who will participate in the 100m and the long jump. Top local high school athletes, ­i­ncluding Calabar High’s Christopher Taylor and De’Jour Russell, should also compete, so we are expecting a good meet,” Brooks said.last_img read more

Report: Scarlets 28-19 Bristol Bears

first_img Ryan Edwards on the charge in the first half (JMPUK). The visitors led 19-7 at the interval, courtesy of tries from Jordan Crane, Luke Daniels and Alapati Leuia, but were pegged back in a scrappy second period. What happened? In conditions more akin to November, Bristol seized the early initiative and could have gone ahead when Ryan Edwards sidestepped his way just a metre short of the chalk.But Scarlets edged in front when Clayton Blommetjies – on his first outing since arriving in Llanelli from the Cheetahs – stretched over for a converted score.The visitors struck back soon after through Jordan Crane’s close-range effort, before Luke Daniels crossed on his first outing in Bristol colours on the half hour mark. The full back combined well with Ryan Edwards down the outside channel to touch down.Alapati Leiua extended the advantage before the interval when the powerful centre collected a delicate Tom Pincus grubber kick to cross the whitewash for a converted try, moving the score to 7-19.Head coach Pat Lam made wholesale changes after the break but it was Scarlets who drew first blood, with an hour on the clock. As the Welsh outfit pressed for an opening, Tomi Lewis reacted quickest to a kick ahead to touch down. In an attritional second forty, neither side created many clear-cut chances, although Scarlets enjoyed the lion’s share of possession.Then, late in the game, referee Nigel Owens awarded the home side a penalty try after an adjudged infringement just a metre from the line.With time running out, Blommetjies added a second when he raced over from twenty metres, while Hidalgo Clyne converted to seal the friendly victory. Key moment: In the dying stages, Scarlets were awarded a penalty try following an adjudged infringement deep in Bristol territory, which turned the game on its head and gave the home side the lead.

Photo/Joe LaneMuskegon.The Big Reds are 7-1 overall and 5-0 in the O-K Black Conference, coming into Friday’s home game with Jenison. Jenison is 5-3 overall and 4-1 in the league.The Big Reds make no secret that they are mainly focused on getting back to Ford Field and winning a state championship. That’s certainly a reasonable goal for a team ranked No. 1 in Michigan in Division 3.But they would like to claim local bragging rights as well, and that starts with finally winning another conference trophy.“Our long-term goal is to win a state title,” said Muskegon Coach Shane Fairfield. “But we have goals we have focused on in the short-term – get six wins to qualify for the playoffs, and put ourselves in a positon to win a conference championship. We’ve done both of those things.”Muskegon was denied a conference title in 2014 and 2015 by crosstown rival Mona Shores, which defeated the Big Reds and won the championship both years.In last week’s game against Mona Shores, the Big Reds trailed at halftime, and some wondered if the Sailors might continue that trend and mess with Muskegon’s title hopes again.But Muskegon rallied in the second half and won 36-15, setting up the championship showdown with Jenison.“With Shores it’s a crosstown rivalry, with trash talking and chest pounding,” Fairfield said. “That took over in the first half. They played their game plan. We only had 11 (offensive snaps) in the first half and only 90 yards of offense. We just didn’t move the sticks when we needed to.“Shores has a potent offense, but we held them to 15 points and then settled down. They played us tough. We needed that. It’s hard to believe they have three losses. The officials talked about them after the game and said that’s one good team.“We needed that challenge. It put a spark in us. Hopefully it’s for the better.”The Big Reds also had some issues the previous week against Kenowa Hills. They won easily – 49-7 – but committed six turnovers in the game. That kind of sloppiness could be troublesome in upcoming matchups against tougher opponents.Fairfield noted that turnovers were not an issue against Mona Shores, and said his players are focused on sharpening their game as they finish the regular season and head for the playoffs.“Last week (against Mona Shores) we didn’t have any turnovers, I don’t think.” Fairfield said. “We handled the ball well. These kids are playing hard. Their mindset is playing right, playing fast and getting back to business.“But the games (the last two weeks) had us shook up a little bit. Mona Shores was in a playoff mentality. They were sitting at 4-3 and knew that if they beat us they could get their sixth win in the last week (to qualify for the playoffs).”Jenison will be in a similar situation against Muskegon. A victory would not only give the Wildcats a share of the league title, but would send them to the postseason. A loss would deny them both.That means Jenison is desperate for a win, and desperate teams are dangerous teams.“We need to win the O-K Black, but Jenison has the ‘win or go home’ mentality,” Fairfield said. “They are coming in with a playoff mentality.”The Wildcats are young, but have talent, according to Fairfield.“Jenison is a good team,” he said. “They are ready. They have a really good quarterback in sophomore Kyle Nott. He runs his offense very well. He’s scrappy, he gets after it. He’s had some big games and throws the ball well.“They have a 6-6, 230-pound tackle, Dan Vanopstall, who is very athletic and could play for us. They have a lot of juniors and some sophomores, but they’re well disciplined. They will give us some challenges and we look forward to it.”Jenison has beaten Grand Rapids Northview (36-17), Kenowa Hills (32-7), Grand Rapids Union (42-12), Reeths-Puffer (11-8) and Fruitport (20-0). The Wildcats have lost to Forest Hills Central (21-0), Mona Shores (40-10) and West Ottawa (17-16).The Big Reds have beaten Ann Arbor Pioneer (51-14), Fruitport (36-7), Byron Center (41-14), Reeths-Puffer (66-0), Grand Rapids Union (69-0), Kenowa Hills (49-7) and Mona Shores (36-15).Muskegon’s only loss was to Illinois power Lincolnshire Stevenson, 38-35. The Big Reds have outscored their opponents this season 418-95.The Big Red offense is led by dangerous dual-threat quarterback Kalil Pimpleton, who has passed for 542 yards and 13 touchdowns and ran for 879 yards and 15 touchdowns.The second-leading rusher is the backup quarterback, La’darius Jefferson, who has 376 yards.The top receivers for Muskegon are Jacorey Sullivan (18 catches, 296 yards, four touchdowns) and Pimpleton (10 catches, 120 yards, one touchdown). Kevin Reynolds, Da’von McCall, Jaden McGough and Clinton Jefferson, Jr. have three touchdown catches apiece.Andrew Ward leads the team in tackles with 60, followed by Ali Vonta Wallace (40), Derek Spann (33) and Anthony Melton (31).

I think I am feeling good for tomorrow [Wednesday’s game with Guinea],” Gyan said on Tuesday after training.With Guinea also buoyant of their chances following their 6-1 hammering of Botswana, the top-of-the-table clash at the Stade de Franceville on Wednesday is set for a thrilling finish. “Yeah, it would be a tough game but what matters is Ghana winning each game,” he said.The Black Stars need a draw against Guinea to finish top of Group D.last_img read more

Four Wheaton College football players plead not guilty in alleged assault on fellow student

first_imgGoogle Maps(WHEATON, Ill.) — Four of the five Wheaton College football players facing felony charges for allegedly assaulting another student pleaded not guilty on Monday morning.The five athletes were suspended from the football team at the Christian school after being charged with aggravated battery, mob action and unlawful restraint.The alleged incident happened in March 2016 in Wheaton, Illinois, during which a man said he was taken forcefully out of his dorm room, restrained against his will and left at a baseball field, Wheaton police said.The alleged victim told school investigators he was in a dorm when several people burst in, held him down, “violently” pulled his arms behind him and wrapped duct tape around his ankles and wrists, according to an investigation report obtained by ABC News.The attackers put a pillowcase on his head and duct-taped it, and put him into a car, the alleged victim told investigators.The alleged victim told investigators his attackers attempted to sexually assault him with an object, and that he was also punched and slapped.He told investigators he was taken to a baseball field; he said dirt was thrown on him, his cellphone was taken and he was left there partially naked.The alleged victim, who left Wheaton College shortly after the alleged incident, told school investigators he suffered labral tears on both shoulders from the way his arms were pulled and restrained.An attorney for one of the accused students, Noah Spielman, said last month his client was “disappointed” and “frustrated,” the Chicago Tribune reported.“There are three things in life that he absolutely adores: his faith, his family and his passion for school,” the attorney said.Wheaton College said in a statement last month that it was “deeply troubled by the allegations.”The school said, “when this incident was brought to our attention by other members of the football team and coaching staff in March 2016, the College took swift action to initiate a thorough investigation.”The school said the “conduct we discovered as a result of our investigation into this incident was entirely unacceptable.”The school also said it “fully cooperated with law enforcement in their investigation.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Four Charged in Paris Kardashian Robbery

first_img Related Timothy White/E!(PARIS) — Four people have been charged in France in the connection with alleged robbery of Kim Kardashian West, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office.A 27-year-old faces charges of complicity with an armed robbery by an organized gang, sequestration and association with criminals, as do a 62-year-old and 63-year-old, authorities said.Another suspect, 44, has been charged with concealment/fencing by an organized gang and association with criminals.Six others are still being questioned, authorities said.Last October, Kardashian West, 35, was allegedly robbed at gunpoint in a Paris apartment she had rented for Fashion Week. The assailants, whom the reality TV star’s publicist described as “armed, masked men dressed as police officers,” allegedly tied up Kardashian West and stole jewelry worth an estimated $10 million.The French newspaper Le Monde first reported, and Us Weekly has confirmed, a report claiming that one of the 17 suspects arrested in connection with the Oct. 3, 2016 robbery works for the limo company that the Kardashian-Jenner family regularly used during their trips to the French capital.According to Le Monde, the chauffeur was the last person to drive Kardashian West before the robbery, during which she was bound and held at gunpoint by five masked assailants who made off with an estimated $10 million worth of jewelry. Police are reportedly trying to determine whether the driver passed information to the thieves.A representative for Kardashian West had no comment on the charges or arrests when reached by ABC News Thursday.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Orioles vs Giants 6/2/19 rubber match preview/lineups

first_imgThe opposing pitcher today for the Giants is the tall 12-year veteran Jeff Samardzija. He goes to the bump in Baltimore with a 2-4 record, 3.83 ERA, and 45 strikeouts across 56.1 innings pitched. Samardzija has started 11 games this season, averaging 5.1 innings per outing. Samardzija has walked 19 batters this season, averaging a walk just about every three innings. Please follow and like us: The Orioles would drop the middle game of the series and the opening game of June in dominating fashion 8-2 at the hands of the Giants offense and seven innings of terrific pitching by Shaun Anderson. Brandon Belt would “belt” in half of the Giants offensive runs, with help from Evan Longoria, Joe Panik, Buster Posey, and Mike Yastrzemski. The victory was led by Dwight Smith Jr.’s grand slam, Trey Mancini’s two-run shot, and a solo bomb in the seventh by Renato Nunez. All the offense came after the Giants jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the opening inning. Today the 23-34 Giants go back to work against the hometown Baltimore Orioles, who work with a 18-40 record. It is a far cry from the early first place Orioles, or even the .500 Orioles from just a few weeks ago. center_img On the mound today for the O’s is Gabriel Ynoa. He goes to the hill with an 0-1 record, along with a 5.40 ERA, but 22 strikeouts and just seven walks to speak on. In 10 games, Ynoa has started just once and has pitched a combined 21.2 innings. The Baltimore Orioles opened up the current three-game set with the San Francisco Giants with a 9-6 victory. last_img read more
