Ladyjacks Face Texas in NCAA Tournament Opener

first_imgTHE FIRST SERVE• For the first time since 2006, the SFA volleyball team is back in the NCAA Tournament field and Thursday night inside Gregory Gym the Ladyjacks start their postseason run against fifth-ranked Texas inside Gregory Gym. • First serve in the third meeting between SFA and Texas in the Ladyjacks’ NCAA Division I era is set for 7:00 p.m. The match will be televised nationally on the Longhorn Network with Paul Sunderland and Karch Kiraly providing play-by-play and analysis. Video streaming will be available via and ESPN apps.• Setting up shop inside Gregory Gym will be longtime SFA volleyball expert Greg Miller. His call of the match can be heard on an internet radio stream available at NCAA TOURNAMENT HISTORY• 2018 marks the fifth NCAA Tournament appearance for SFA and its first in 12 years. • SFA previously made the cut for the NCAA Tournament in 1994, 1997, 1999 and 2006. • SFA has an all-time record of 1-4 in the NCAA Tournament with its only victory coming in five sets over Alabama in the opening round of the 2006 NCAA Tournament which was played, oddly enough, inside Gregory Gym. • SFA’s losses in the NCAA Tournament have come against Clemson (3-2 on 11/30/94), Texas (3-0 on 12/4/97 and 3-0 on 12/2/06) and Texas A&M (3-0 on 12/2/99).LET’S TALK STREAKS AND WINS• SFA’s 29-match winning streak is currently the longest in the nation at the moment. It’s also one of five active winning streaks that are at 20 matches or longer. Stanford (26 matches), UCF (24 matches), Kentucky (21 matches) and Creighton (20 matches) have all won 20 or more matches in a row as well. • That winning streak by SFA is also the longest in program history. With their Southland Conference Tournament quarterfinal win over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, the Ladyjacks passed 2006 edition of the the team for the longest winning streak in program history. That 2006 squad won 26 in a row which included the program’s first – and so far only – NCAA Tournament victory.• SFA is a perfect 11-0 in road matches this season. That makes the Ladyjacks the only NCAA Division I volleyball team in the nation who has not lost a true road match this season. Also, the Ladyjacks’ 11-match winning streak in road matches is tied with Stanford and Kentucky for the lengthiest in the nation.• Not only is SFA perfect on the road, but it is perfect inside Shelton Gym this season, too. The Ladyjacks are 14-0 on their home floor and have won 15-straight matches there dating back to last season. That gives SFA the nation’s eighth-longest active home court winning streak and makes it one of 14 teams in the land this year that haven’t lost a home match in 2018. • Dating back to last season, SFA has also won 17 consecutive Southland Conference matches – the sixth-longest active in-conference winning streak in all of NCAA Division I volleyball. • No team in the nation has amassed more wins so far than SFA. The Ladyjacks are the only team in the land that has reached the 30-win mark and their 32 victories are three more than the next closest team in the land. Pittsburgh has won 29 matches to put them second in total wins behind SFA. LAST TIME OUT• Danae Daron was named the Southland Conference Tournament MVP while Anyia Williams and Makenzee Hanna each earned spots on the Southland Conference All-Tournament Team as the Ladyjacks blasted Central Arkansas 3-0 in the Southland Conference Tournament title match on Sunday, Nov. 18. • On her birthday, Williams accumulated team-highs in both kills (nine) and blocks (eight) to help lead SFA back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2006. • Ann Hollas delivered a trio of service aces while Haley Coleman and Sabrina Monaco added two more each for SFA who racked up eight winners from the service line. • SFA hit .337 and held the Sugar Bears to a clip of just .146. DEFENSE• SFA ranks fourth nationally in opponent hitting percentage with a mark of .139. That figure is the best in the Southland Conference, too. • The Ladyjacks’ front-row defense has played a part in that, too, as SFA leads the Southland in both blocks per set (2.71) and total blocks (316.5). On the national scene, SFA ranks 12th in total blocks and 20th in blocks per set. • Most of SFA’s front-row defensive prowess has been because of three individuals – Danae Daron, Anyia Williams and Makenzee Hanna. Daron and Williams rank 41st in the nation as both average 1.26 blocks per set while Hanna adds 0.97 blocks per set. SERVICE PRESSURE• Four Ladyjacks have accumulated 25 or more service aces this season. That has helped SFA rank 26th nationally with 178 total aces and 37th in the land with a service aces per set mark of 1.52. • McKenzie Brewer, Haley Coleman and Marisabel Torres have each totaled five service aces in a match one time this season. It’s Coleman who leads SFA with 36 winners from the service line while Brewer (29), Ann Hollas (27) and Peyton Redmond (26) each have over 25 aces as well. SCOUTING TEXAS | ROSTER | SCHEDULE | STATISTICS• After winning their second-straight Big 12 crown, the Longhorns set their sights on another deep postseason run. One of those runs hinges on a powerful offense as Texas ranks second in the land with an attack percentage of .308. • The Longhorns are led by 2018 Big 12 Coach of the Year Jerritt Elliott who has 2018 Big 12 Player of the Year Micaya White and 2018 Big 12 Freshman of the Year Logan Eggleston at his disposal. • White leads the team in kills per set (3.88) and ranks second in digs per set (2.41). Offensively, other big players for the Longhorns include Eggleston (2.87 kills/set), Brionne Butler (2.09 kills/set) and Yaazie Bedart-ghani (2.59 kills/set). • Bedart-ghani (.370), Butler (.363) and Morgan Johnson (.358) ranks second, third and fourth among all Big 12 players in terms of hitting percentage. They rank 38th, 45th and 53rd in the nation respectively, too.• Butler (1.20 blocks/set) and Johnson (1.08 blocks/set) lead the way at the front of the net for Texas. As a team, the Longhorns rank 48th nationally with 2.44 blocks per set. COMING UP NEXT• Should SFA defeat the fifth-ranked Longhorns, it would move on to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2006. The Ladyjacks would take on the winner of Texas State and Rice in a second-round match on Friday night at 8:00 p.m.last_img read more

Athletic, Real and FEF agree on a Cup final with the public

first_imgFortunately, sanity has prevailed and although Athletic and Real Sociedad had distanced themselves in recent days for trying to defend their interests in the final of the Copa del Rey, they have chosen to walk together to have more strength. Aperribay and Elizegi have met with Rubiales and have agreed to request the RFEF that the appointment of La Cartuja can be held with the public and officially, open door, at a future date to be determined by agreement between the three parties.“The desire and the will of both clubs has always been, now and before, to play the final with the presence of our fans and fans. It is what we would like most. A Cup final with our fans in the stands,” argue the responsible for both entities in a joint note. Ibaigane published a very lukewarm statement last week, somewhat criticized by fans and the team itself, and has waited a few days to join positions with its eternal rival.At the same time, Athletic and Real Sociedad they want the RFEF “to guarantee that the Cup final will be played as an official competition and will be considered an official title”. To do this, they have requested the General Secretariat of the RFEF that the Delegate Commission of the General Assembly of the RFEF, whose next meeting will be held on Friday, take an agreement to modify the calendar that enables the Cup final to be held as Official title with the presence of followers of both teams. The Federation devised a plan to move the final until the spring of 2021, reserving a European place for the representative of the competition, which could even be both if one of the contestants obtained a ticket for Europe through the League, but the UEFA put that idea down. Now it is a matter of resuming that initiative with the approval of the national body. Everything indicates that it will not be so and the seventh of the League (right now Valencia) would go to Europe. The two main Basque clubs stress that with this decision, they want “to value one of the most prestigious and traditional sporting events that can be played in world football, unique in this edition and to do it together with their followers, followers, subscribers , subscribers, partners and partners, the true essence and raison d’être of this wonderful sport. “RFEF: approval for a final with an audience either in 2020 or 2021The Federation shares the desire of the Cup finalists and will do everything possible so that the final is played with the public. This is the statement issued by the RFEF positioning itself with Real and Athletic.“The RFEF fully shares the desire of the Athletic Club and the Real Sociedad clubs to play the Final of the Copa del SM el Rey when health and sports circumstances allow the Final to be held open to the public and with the presence of both fans and everyone those fans who wish to attend.The Royal House and the Trophy with the greatest roots and tradition in Spanish football deserve a final with an audience. For this, the RFEF thanks the decision and the joint request of both clubs and will articulate the necessary regulatory mechanisms so that the Final of the Copa del SM el Rey is played as an official competition at the right time during the year 2020 or 2021 and always before the Final of the 2020/2021 Season is disputed. The RFEF will set, in common agreement with Real Sociedad and Athletic Club, the most convenient date for said Final to be the great celebration of Spanish football. “last_img read more

Nothing was found, but a chisel and a hammer were removed from the house.The items match the marks left on Mukhram’s door.last_img read more


first_imgSinn Féin Finance Spokesperson Pearse Doherty TD has described the Troika’s targets for the banks to reach agreements with distressed mortgage holders as lacking ambition.Deputy Doherty said the government needs to be breathing down the necks of the banks to ensure that they are offering homeowners fair agreements.Speaking this evening as details of the Troika’s targets emerged Deputy Doherty said: “Last week we had the farce of the banks coming into the Dáil with massaged figures as it was revealed that they were including letters threatening repossessions as part of their figures to reach their targets. “We now need to see the government breathing down the necks of these banks to ensure that they are offering fair solutions to distressed mortgage holders and that they are meeting their targets.“The target suggested by the Troika of 25% of agreements finalised by the end of next March is lacking ambition and fails to acknowledge the depth or urgency of the crisis. To think that 75% of distressed mortgage holders would still not have their agreements settled one year on from when the government set these targets is unacceptable.“These baks benefitted from public money when they were bailed out by the taxpayer. The government now needs to act in the interest of those taxpayers and start putting pressure on the banks to act appropiately.”  DISTRESSED HOME OWNERS LET DOWN AGAIN – DOHERTY was last modified: September 11th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DISTRESSED HOME OWNERS LET DOWN AGAIN – DOHERTYlast_img read more

Cautious Optimism

first_img ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read: Posted on May 1, 2011June 20, 2017By: Yeabsira Mehari, Young Champion of Maternal HealthClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)This blog post was contributed by Yeabsira Mehari, one of the fifteen Young Champions of Maternal Health chosen by Ashoka and the Maternal Health Task Force at EngenderHealth. She will be blogging about her experience every month, and you can learn more about her, the other Young Champions, and the program here.I sat at my computer fervently writing a paper on maternal health, specifically obstetric fistula. I covered the history of obstetric fistula going back to the first discovery of fistula, the anatomical review of Queen Henhenit of Egypt who ruled around 2050 B.C. It went on to discuss the Safe Motherhood Initiative headed by Dr. Fred Sai, launched after the paper Maternal Mortality — A Neglected Tragedy: Where is the M in MCH? was published and the announcement by the World Health Organization that 500,000 women died​ annually due to childbirth related injuries.Fast forward six years…April 2011 – Accra, Ghana – I am sitting in a room full of Young Champions, maternal health experts and advocates. It’s the Young Champions Future Forum, our last gathering for this amazing program. After spending time in countries completely foreign to us, we reconvened as new people with more passion, energy and cautious optimism. Over the course of the Forum, we shared our experiences, hopes and dreams with one another and listened to inspirational speakers. One such speaker was Dr. Fred Sai, known to many of us as one of the founders of the maternal health field. He spoke to us about his experiences – both good and bad – and discussed the history of the maternal health field, its status today and what the future holds. There couldn’t have been a better ending to an exceptionally well-organized Forum.I listened intently to the words Dr. Fred Sai had to share with us.  After all, he is someone that I have admired and followed over the years and has an incredible wealth of information to share. He understood that he was in a room full of young people ready to tackle one of the world’s heaviest issues. He also understood that though we were willing and ready to fight the good fight, there was fear in us as the road to ending maternal health issues is a rough road full of many obstacles, most that he had already faced in his lifetime. He left us with a line from his favorite hymn (also the theme of his 80th birthday). He said when you feel trapped or cornered; Brighten the corner where you are. Very timely for most, if not all, of us there.Senior advisor to the Maternal Health Task Force, Tim Thomas, wrote in a recent blog post, “They first met at the Global Maternal Health Conference in Delhi last fall as group of smart, idealistic and aspiring young people seeking to make a difference in the world by saving mothers lives. They emerged in Accra as a smart, idealistic but pragmatic and experienced group of young people determined to buck the odds and apply their innovation in the professional world.” I could not have put it any better. The past several months have been a time of growth, reflection and future planning. Moved and inspired by my peers, I know that this is just the beginning. The real work begins now as I plan the implementation phase of my project. Yes, I’m still fearful that it may not work. Yes, I still wonder if this is the best way for me to contribute to the field. Yes, there are many more questions that attempt to instill doubt within me. But all I have to do is remember my time with the people that are the past, present and future of maternal health and the struggles they overcame and are still overcoming to effect change. I remember that it will be an uphill climb…most of the time, but that the view from atop that hill is what we’re all striving for– a world where no woman should die from giving birth. And that makes each step of the climb worthwhile.Share this:last_img read more
