Solinsky looks to repeat title at NCs

first_imgAfter an impressive showing at the Big Ten Championships last month, the Wisconsin men’s and women’s track and field teams are ready to compete at the Indoor NCAA Championships in Fayetteville, Ark., this weekend. The Badgers will be sending 10 qualifiers to the Championships, eight on the men’s side and two off the women’s roster.The top-seeded event for the men is the distance medley relay. The team of Ben Gregory, Joe Pierre, Chad Melotte and Chris Solinsky qualified for the meet last weekend and are entered as the No. 1 seed.Other Badgers going to Arkansas this weekend include Demi Omole, who is seeded third in the 60-meter dash, and Alonzo Moore, who is seeded third in the triple jump.”I feel pretty prepared; my workouts have been going pretty well, and I feel as though I have the best chance to win this week,” Omole said. “My biggest competition is a freshman from Baylor and a sophomore from Florida State, but other than that, it’s a three person race … I believe I will get my first national title this weekend.”Solinsky is probably the Badgers best chance to claim an individual crown, as he is the defending national champion in the 3000-meter race from last year and was recently named the Big Ten’s Athlete of the Year. The junior distance runner is seeded sixth in the 3000-meter run and fourth in the 5000-meter race.Along with Solinsky, two more Badgers qualified in the 5000-meter race. Tim Nelson, is ranked 13th in the event, followed by Stuart Eagon, who is ranked 15th.Rounding out the distance crew is Gregory, who is seeded 17th in the mile.”I think you have to assume that they have a good chance to place,” UW head coach Ed Nuttycombe said of his team. “You’ve got one young man (Solinksy) who’s a defending champion, you’ve got two guys who went third in their respective events. I think all eight guys who we are taking definitely have a chance to score and place.” Nuttycombe said.Going to Arkansas for the women are Katrina Rundhaug and Melissa Talbout.Rundhaug is seeded 14th in the 5000-meter run and Melissa Talbot is ranked 16th seed in the pentathlon.”Obviously, both qualified for the NCAAs which makes them pretty elite, because they only take about 16 or 17[athletes] across the country.” UW head coach Jim Stintzi said. “They’ve both progressed each year steadily and have either improved their marks or come down in time, depending on the event.””I feel really ready for [competition], and I’m just excited to run and race.” Rundhaug said, “My ultimate goal is to be an All-American, and, hopefully, I’ll end up in the top upper half of the race.””I think I’m a lot more prepared than what I was with the Big Ten meet and from the last couple of meets,” Talbout added. “I hope to give my best stuff of the season. Anybody can be off one day in something and be on in something else, anybody could take anybody else’s spot.”Stintzi also believes that his two qualifiers have yet to perform at their capability.”I don’t really think either one of them have run or performed at their best yet this year, so if they do that, I think they both have a good chance of scoring,” he said.last_img read more

49ers report card: Garoppolo bails out ‘humbled’ defense

first_imgGLENDALE, Ariz. — Here is how the 49ers (8-0) graded in Thursday night’s 28-25 win at the Arizona Cardinals (3-5-1):PASS OFFENSE: AJimmy Garoppolo’s four touchdown passes provided the points, and fittingly they came in clutch situations — third-and-3 to George Kittle, third-and-6 to Kendrick Bourne, fourth-and-1 to Emmanuel Sanders and third-and-7 to Dante Pettis. Perhaps the sweetest pass he’s thrown as a 49er resulted in a 22-yard dime to Sanders. Garoppolo still needed to come through …last_img

Writing judgments part of judge’s business: CJI

first_imgA day after the verdict on the Ayodhya dispute, Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi on Sunday said writing judgments was part of the business of a judge and that the justice delivery system was not about liking judgments.He was speaking at a function in Guwahati to release the Assamese version of the book “Courts of India: Past to Present” published by the SC. Three other judges of the apex court attended the function.“This perhaps is my last public function. I don’t think I will miss it. I never liked talking in public. On the third of this month, there was a book release at the Indian International Centre where I spoke to my heart’s content,” Mr. Gogoi said.At that event, he had said that Assam’s exercise to update the National Register of Citizens was a much-needed “base document for the future”. He had also hit out at the “armchair commentators” who “seek to present a highly distorted picture” even as they are “far removed from ground realities”.At the book launch event, however, Mr. Gogoi said he would not be commenting on any contentious issues.“You don’t contribute to justice delivery system by liking judgments. Writing judgments is part of the business of a judge,” he said.An Assam government spokesperson said the CJI, set to retire on November 17, had gone to his newly constructed house in the city before attending the event to launch the book.last_img read more

Alastair Cook elated after fairytale farewell from Test cricket

first_imgIt was a fairytale ending for Alastair Cook, no less. With scores of 71 and 147 in the two innings of the Oval Test vs India, Cook bid goodbye to his England international career on a high.On Monday, after the day ended with Cook being incessantly applauded as he left the field, he said, “sometimes dreams come true”. On Tuesday, the dream became even better as England beat India by 188 runs and won the series 4-1.Ahead of this match, England captain had said that he would want to make a statement by defeating the world No.1 Test team 4-1 and give Cook a perfect farewell and all of it happened at the Oval.”It has been the most amazing week, one you couldn’t have scripted. Got a text from Beefy (Ian Botham) and he said ‘Can I have your script writer?’,” Cook said at the presentation ceremony.INDIA VS ENGLAND 5TH TEST: REPORT | HIGHLIGHTS | SCORECARDCook received the man-of-the-match award for a fabulous batting display in the fifth and final Test of the series. He had started his career with a century against India in Nagpur and finished in the same vein with a hundred in London.Cook was delighted to have contributed to the English win in his final international match and lauded the fact that this match proved to be a “great advert for Test cricket.”Also read – Virat Kohli rues missed opportunities after 4-1 series defeat to England”Just been amazing, great to contribute to an England win, and win the series 4-1. Also a great game of cricket, to go into the last session of the last day with all four results possible, great advert for Test cricket. Been great moment, sad moments, when it’s been tough, Test cricket shows how hard it is, turn up needing seven wickets but it goes right to the end. I leave with great memories, the memories shared with my team is what I’ll miss the most.”advertisement Alastair Cook and England cricket team celebrated their Test win over India with much fervour. (AP Photo)Cook was applauded for almost two minutes after he scored his century on Monday and by the end, he almost looked embarrassed by the adulation. He termed it as “amazing”.He, however, did not forget to add the achievement of James Anderson, who picked up his 564th Test wicket on Tuesday to surpass Glenn McGrath and become the pacer with most number of wickets in Test history.Also read – Joe Root pays tribute to Cook and Anderson after series win over IndiaHe anointed Anderson with “England’s greatest cricketer” and said it was “fitting that he got the last wicket”.”Amazing, it was a selfish thing to be standing there while everyone cheering, and then to see Jimmy pass Glenn McGrath’s record was brilliant. That was the hardest bit, him and Broady are the ones I’ve played the most with, to know I’ll never stand at slip and drop another catch off them is sad. We’ve lived in each other’s pickets for 12 years. Been a privilege to play with England’s greatest cricketer, no disrespect to any other guys, his skills to do it time and time again, you almost take it for granted, that’s he’s going to hit a length. The game was a little bit tight, but he didn’t miss his length once. It is fitting that he got the last wicket.”Also read – Rishabh Pant announces his arrival with maiden Test hundredCook said that he would not miss the pressure of international cricket at all but he will miss playing with this team.”The amount of hard work, the pressure and strain, I won’t miss that.

IMCOM Chief Looks to Policy Changes to Meet Strategic Constraints

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR With the prospect of getting more resources from Washington not promising, Lty  Gen. Kenneth Dahl, commanding general of the Army’s Installation Management Command (IMCOM), says he’ll push for policy changes to better support his agency’s mission.“I don’t need more money and I don’t need more people. I need to change policies,” he said during a visit last month to the Presidio of Monterey, Calif.One change the Army is considering is phasing out single occupancy rooms in barracks as a way to reduce costs, Dahl said. Barracks renovated to the current “1+1 standard” — private rooms with shared kitchenette and living areas — is another inefficient arrangement, reported IMCOM.The Army’s effort to offer healthier dining options at its facilities and at outlets managed by the Army and Air Force Exchange Service will help meet the needs of today’s service members, he said.The commander also praised the installation’s partnership with the city of Monterey, which provides maintenance support to its public works division.“It’s a really great thing you have going here,” Dahl said during a stop at the Presidio of Monterey Services Administration, the agency operated by the city. “I’m not sure it would work everywhere. But what you have here is really special,” Dahl said.last_img read more
