first_imgILOILO – An Ilonggo crew of a fishing vessel from Navotas City, Metro Manila that recently docked in Iloilo City tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), bringing to 103 the total number of cases in Western Visayas as of yesterday. * Negros Occidental – three Patient No. 103, a 34-year-old male, is currently in isolation at Iloilo City’s quarantine facility. * Iloilo province – 20 Of the 103 cases, seven are hospitalized, two are on home quarantine and 20 on facility quarantine. * Iloilo City – 16 Possible vaccines and some specific drug treatments are under investigation. They are being tested through clinical trials. The World Health Organization is coordinating efforts to develop vaccines and medicines to prevent and treat COVID-19./PN * Antique – 14 Patient No. 103 should not be subjected to discrimination, stressed Alonsabe. He appealed to the people of Alimodian not to panic. Patient No. 102 is currently confined at a hospital in Iloilo City. He was feverish, one of the symptoms of COVID-19. The crew was a resident of Alimodian, Iloilo but fortunately had not yet set foot in his hometown after docking, according to Mayor Geefre Alonsabe. Patient No. 103 was the sole addition to Region 6’s COVID-19 case tally yesterday. * Guimaras – zero According to Mayor Alonsabe, Patient No. 103 visited Alimodian in January this year yet before COVID-19 became a pandemic. Sixty-four cases have already recovered while the number of deaths still stood at 10. * Capiz – five * Aklan – six   “Ginapahanumdom ko gid ang mga pumoluyo nga magpabilin nga mapag-on. Ang local government unit naton nagahimu sang tikang para mayad ang maabtan sang taga-Alimodian,” said Alonsabe. Their fishing vessel docked at the Iloilo Fishing Port on May 11 to delivery fish. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don’t feel unwell. He said the local government of Alimodian was willing to accommodate Patient No. 103 at the town’s quarantine facility should the city government of  Iloilo  decide to turn the patient over to his hometown. * Bacolod City – nine Here’s the breakdown of cases per area: * repatriates – 30 (Aklan, one; Antique, three; Guimaras, two; Iloilo province, four; Negros Occidental, seven; Bacolod City, three; and Iloilo City, 10). The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. He had close contact with Patient No. 102, a 38-year-old male colleague at their fishing vessel and a resident of Hinigaran, Negros Occidental. The vessel had a total of 18 crew members. All of them were subjected to reverse transcription – polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test.last_img read more

Alarming Trend

first_imgThere is an alarming trend occurring in varsity basketball in Southeastern Indiana as well as areas all over the Midwest.  As you look at area rosters, you will find more underclassmen on those rosters than upperclassmen.  Most of this is the result of young people thinking “if I can’t start, I am not going to play”.  They don’t want to sit the bench.  This leaves high school rosters filled with young players and forces coaches to use these inexperienced players before they are ready.In my years of coaching, there might have been a single freshman showing up on the County Tourney boys’ rosters, but this year I believe there were 10 freshmen listed on the 4 teams.  It is too bad that young people feel this way, because the added experience and growth of seniors is needed on the bench.last_img read more

Williams’ 5-7 7-6(5) 6-1 loss in the round of 16 on Tuesday was a big blow to her preparations for next week’s U.S. Open, where the 38-year-old is bidding for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles title. It was a second exhausting three-setter in as many rounds for Williams, who squandered the opportunity to close out the contest on serve in the second set before her Greek opponent launched a comeback. “It was tough. I literally should have won that match. There was no excuse,” Williams, who at one point flung her racket into the empty stands and also received a time violation, told reporters. “It was hard… I had so many opportunities to win and I have to figure that one out, like how to start winning those matches again.” Williams, whose match fitness had been questioned ahead of the Open, said she was also struggling with cramps towards the end of the match.last_img read more

Wisconsin falls to Western Michigan

first_imgA day that started with tremendous promise ended with tremendous disappointment for the No. 34 Wisconsin women’s tennis team.After a tightly contested doubles point that ultimately went the Badgers’ way thanks to clutch victories on the first and third court, the team failed to muster a win in the day’s final four singles matches, falling to No. 52 Western Michigan 5-2 at home Saturday.”On the bank that I was on, within 20 minutes, we were down … 6-1, 5-0 and 5-2,” head coach Patti Henderson said of the singles performance. “As I said to our players, the biggest thing that you guys have to do is make mental adjustments on your feet much, much quicker than you’re doing. I mean, to have walked out of here and having only won two out of 12 singles sets is, to me, unacceptable.”Those two victorious singles frames would both belong to junior standout No. 32 Caitlin Burke, who made quick work of the Broncos’ Malena Remynse with a 6-0, 6-2 match that marked the day’s second completion and, for a brief period of time, actually left the Badgers sitting on a 2-1 lead.”[Burke] was a better player and she played as a better player,” Henderson said. “From the scores today and from last weekend, she’s taking care of business when she’s in a position to do that.”But matters were grimmer for the Badgers elsewhere, as the squad dropped the number two, three, four, five and six singles competitions with Kaylan Caiati, Chelsea Nusslock, Morgan Tuttle, Liz Carpenter and Erin Jobe losing in straight sets to Carrie Jeanmaire, Rattiya Hiranrat, Reedina Parekh, Priyanka Parekh and Kerstin-Beeke Pahl, respectively.With the Badgers down 3-2, Caiati and Tuttle, the last two Wisconsin players on the court, would both mount second set rallies but ultimately dropped those frames 7-6(6) and 7-5.”Definitely what’s not working is my depth,” Caiati said. “I think I’ve improved that a little bit over the year, but playing a higher position [than last year], I definitely can’t afford to hit the ball short and that’s what I really need to work on: keeping the ball deep, whether or not my opponent hits a short ball or a deep ball back.”Earlier in the day, the doubles competition would prove a more successful venture for the Badgers, as the pairings of Carpenter/Burke and Nusslock/Nicole Beck claimed 8-4 and 8-5 wins over their Bronco opponents, even after Caiati and Tuttle dropped their match.”I was pleased with how we handled ourselves at one and three doubles, knowing that we had lost at two doubles,” Henderson said. “At the time [two doubles] lost, it was close at both one and three … And I was pleased with how we handled ourselves at that moment. … I felt like they played with composure. They played smart. We got a good percentage of first serves in at some crucial times.”Also on a positive note, Burke’s singles victory extends her unbeaten fall record to 5-0 as the Badger ace continues to show great ease against opposing squads’ top-seeded players.”I served pretty well [today,]” Burke said with typical humility. “My ground strokes were pretty good today, too.”The day’s other good news came from Beck and Tuttle, who both showed improvement from the medical ailments that had sidelined them previously. Beck made her season debut, winning with Nusslock on the doubles court. Tuttle managed her first post-injury singles match, ultimately engaging in the aforementioned rally prior to losing to Parekh.last_img read more

Point Counterpoint: Best Available Head Coach

first_imgDave McGrathAs has become the norm over the past decade or so, the NFL once again has more vacancies than the Bates Motel — when it comes to the head coaches, that is. Now several currently rudderless franchises will rush to find the best available candidate to lead their teams to pay dirt.Teams like the Oakland Raiders and Arizona Cardinals especially are trying to turn around historic failures, and need to attempt a novel approach to alter their negative momentum. That is why I propose a never-before-used dual coach system.One would handle only the on-field responsibilities, and the other, only the off-field duties. This is perfect since there are two ideal personalities to man each position.The on-the-field sideline stomper should be Gregory Lynn Burr, the former head basketball coach of the Monument Academy in Monument, Col. Burr was fired recently for allegedly hitting his players in the groin repeatedly. Reportedly, Burr would line players up and ask them what the capital of Thailand was. When they replied, “Bangkok,” he would scrotum sock them with his hand, a basketball or a tennis ball.Such a literal ball buster would be just what the doctor ordered for players like Randy Moss and other spoiled NFLers. So what if he coaches basketball? It could be the new basketball-on-grass approach!The problem with Burr is his Thailand joke would probably grow old pretty quickly at press conferences. For this reason, Jim Mora Sr. would be brought in to provide quirky quotes and general media giddiness. The NFL has been somewhat empty since Mora left the league after years with the Saints and Colts. His “diddly-poo’s” and “Playoffs?!” are missed more and more each day.So NFL GM’s, vote Burr-Mora in ’07. They’ll be going nuts off the field, and going for them on it.Point: Burr and Mora.Michael PoppyI guess McGrath’s right — two is better than one. So when picking the best available head coach, it’s better to have two coaches working side by side rather than just one. However, you have to find the right combination in order for it to work.A head coach is more than just a drill sergeant who draws up plays. A head coach has to do much more behind the scenes, and I’m not talking about interviews with the media and charity work. A head coach has to do everything to put his team in position to win, and that includes dirty work.And what dirtier available head coach is there than Kevin McHale? The former Celtic great has been itching to get into the coaching realm for years. The real reason he didn’t continue his coaching career after taking over for the Timberwolves in 2004-05 was because he was just too awesome. He just needs the right man to bribe him back, which we’ll get to later.As for McHale, he’d do whatever it takes to get the best players out on the court, including making under-the-table deals to sign them. Never mind that it was just Joe Smith…McHale’s literal partner-in-crime would be none other than Pete Rose. Side by side, McHale and Rose would be perfect together as they would bring the best out of each other. McHale has yet to realize just how much dirty work he is capable of, and Rose would be able to entice him to do more and more. Gambling on games? Rose would tell McHale, “No problem.” But the two collective minds could go much further than illegal deals and gambling — maybe start ordering hits on opposing players or paying off referees. Either way, these dirty minds would combine to become the best head coaching pair ever.last_img read more

Syracuse grapples with its defensive lineup before the NCAA tournament begins

first_imgOn Sunday night, 11th-ranked Syracuse (12-6, 2-4 Atlantic Coast) learned it would head to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to play No. 3 seed Michigan in the NCAA tournament on Saturday. By then, the Orange needs to decide who its third back is if Lies Lagerweij remains at forward. It’s crucial because Michigan scores 3.29 goals per game on the season.“You know, they’re hockey players, you play the game of hockey,” SU head coach Ange Bradley said. “You don’t play a position.”Although many of Syracuse’s players have shown an ability to play multiple positions, the Orange maintained a stable backline for much of the season. To begin the year, SU had Lagerweij, Roos Weers and Claire Webb in the back. But once Jamie Martin returned from injury on Sept. 17, Webb shifted into the midfield and Martin joined the two first-team All-Americans on defense. Beginning with Syracuse’s game against Drexel on Oct. 15, though, Lagerweij has been shifted up to play forward, her original position at Syracuse. Webb has remained in the midfield, thus opening a spot on the backline.“I like having Lies up front, I like having her in back,” Weers said. “For me it doesn’t really matter.”In its win over Drexel, Syracuse used a few different options in back. Annalena Ulbrich played more minutes than normal and Stephanie Harris played her career-high in minutes, mostly at right back. The following week, in an Oct. 22 loss to Penn, Lagerweij missed the game with an undisclosed injury and regular midfielder Florine Hogendoorn played center back. For its Senior Day victory over Pacific on Oct. 28, Lagerweij again spent the majority of her time at forward, with Ulbrich filling in alongside Weers. And in the first round of the ACC tournament, during a loss to Louisville, Ulbrich again spent time on defense while Lagerweij played up top.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“(The moving pieces on defense) are always part of the D-unit, as we call it,” Weers said. “We take pride in it, we practice with each other … so everybody is used to playing there who played there.”When Lagerweij, a senior, and Ulbrich, a redshirt junior, were freshmen, Ulbrich started the majority of the season at back only to have Lagerweij move from forward to take her spot after Ulbrich suffered a season-ending injury. Ulbrich never reclaimed her spot after Weers stepped into a starting spot as a freshman the following year. So, Ulbrich hasn’t played much since Lagerweij and Weers became stalwarts on defense for Syracuse.Hogendoorn was the other player used at center back while Lagerweij wasn’t playing defense. Prior to the game at Penn, Hogendoorn had seen most of her minutes in center midfield. But Bradley and midfielder Laura Hurff felt her performance that day was fine, and Hogendoorn wasn’t unfamiliar with the position.“She played defense back home (in the Netherlands),” Weers said. “Playing midfield is different than playing back. But it’s just communicating with each other.”In the four games in which Lagerweij has played just sparingly at back, the Orange has allowed three goals twice and shutout its opponent twice.The one aspect of the game SU seems to struggle at slightly more without Lagerweij in the back is breaking an opponent’s high press. Lagerweij and Weers whack the ball accurately side-to-side until it can be pushed upfield. But on occasion, especially against Pacific, Ulbrich appeared to hold the ball too long and created a few almost interceptions for Pacific. If the Orange was to beat Michigan and meet up with Louisville for a third time in the quarterfinal, SU would need to handle Louisville’s extreme pressure to compete.For Syracuse to make it out of the first round of the NCAA tournament, its defensive grouping will need to be solid. Whether by using Ulbrich, Hogendoorn or a new formation, or even reinserting Lagerweij at back, Syracuse will deploy a lineup that hasn’t cemented itself in the last four weeks.“It’s just getting comfort and chemistry,” Bradley said. “They’ve been training together a lot of them for a long time.”Carolin Hoffmann, a Syracuse forward, said it on Sept. 20: “Defense wins championships.” The first step for SU toward winning its second national championship will be figuring out who it’ll have playing at back.
