County Tourney Revisited

first_imgThe just completed Ripley County Tournament was a success when you compare it to other tournaments being held in the state of Indiana.  However, it is no where near the event it used to be.  In its heyday you had to know somebody or compete in a lottery just to get tickets to attend.  Today I do not think they even sell tickets much in advance of the tournament.  In fact, it appears that most people just attend a session or two.  The cost of the ticket is a great bargain if you enjoy going to all of the games.  Some people questioned moving the whole tournament from Batesville and blamed that for the attendance.  The Wednesday session held at Batesville this year put that theory to rest in a big way.  I think the biggest problem with attendance is two-fold.  The major problem is that kids do not attend today.   Only Jac-Cen-Del girls had a decent student section.  Normally, Batesville students show up in large numbers for regular season games, but for some reason, they no longer go to the Ripley County Tourney.  The second problem might be the competitive balance of the four schools.   I do not believe this, because I think that balance of strength can still exist.  Right now the Batesville boys have dominated the championship.  They are on an 8-year winning streak.  Part of this is due to the size of Batesville compared to the enrollment at the other three schools.  This is why you will never see a one-class tournament again in Indiana.  Don’t believe for a second, though, that the other three schools are conceding next year’s championship to Batesville.last_img read more

Lowry critical of ‘joke’ start

first_imgIreland’s Shane Lowry felt it was “a joke” that play started in a torrential downpour on the second day of the US PGA Championship at Valhalla. “I think to be honest, when we were playing the first hole, it was a joke,” said Lowry, who bogeyed the first two holes and went on to add a 74 to his opening 68. “You couldn’t see the flight of the ball after 150 yards. “I called the referee over and said it to him but he said ‘No, play on’. Then we were standing at the back of the first green for an hour, standing in the rain, nowhere to sit down, nothing to do. “From there on it was just a grind for me all day. I’m obviously quite disappointed with the score I shot but it could have been a lot worse. I made a few par saves out there and my head was a bit off all day. The start that we had unsettled me a lot.” The heavy rain also meant it was quite dark when play began and Lowry added: “It was their call and we had to deal with it. I feel like we should have been taken in. What was wrong with taking us in and starting an hour later? “It was borderline playable. There was an element about it that if we were being picky, we could have said it was too dark. “It set the tone for my whole day which was disappointing because, the golf I’m playing at the minute, I really felt I could go out there, shoot a decent score and put myself in a good position in to the weekend.” Lowry was in the first group out at 7:30am local time but was unable to complete the opening hole before play was suspended. And to make matters worse, the 27-year-old and playing partners Ryan Palmer and Bob Sowards were kept out on the course as officials believed the rain would clear quickly. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Team moves past split

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald PhotoAfter the UW men?s hockey team lost in overtime to theMinnesota-Duluth Bulldogs Saturday night, head coach Mike Eaves delivered amessage of optimism at Monday?s press conference.Despite the fact that Friday?s victory gave the Badgers solepossession of fourth place in the WCHA standings, a loss Saturday brought themback to where they started ? tied with UMD. Eaves emphasized the positive playthe team brought to the ice Saturday despite coming up on the losing end.?We [won] Friday night, but to be real honest I was somewhatfrustrated in the way we played, but we [won],? Eaves said in his Monday pressconference. ?Then Saturday we played close to an A-game, and we lost.?The disparity in the team?s level of play and the outcome ofeach game don’t always match up, Eaves said.?We created great scoring chances, did a lot of good thingswith the puck and away from the puck,? Eaves said. ?Unfortunately we didn?tfind the back of the net, and as a result they [got] a tip-in goal to win agame.?The tip-in goal by Jordan Fulton that won the game for UMDSaturday night came a minute into the overtime.?We had guys play at a level that we hadn?t seen in a while,like the Ben Street line,? Eaves said. ?I really felt bad for them; they wereon the ice for the winning goal, but I bet they led us in scoring chances withMike Davies, Matthew Ford, along with Ben Street.?Looking at the stats from Saturday’s loss, the Badgersdominated the shot total. They outshot the Bulldogs 32-23.?I thoroughly enjoyed breaking down most of that gameyesterday,? Eaves said. ?There is great stuff that we can take to our playersand show them ?This is us.?? Team continues to growWisconsin entered the season as the youngest team in theleague, with a roster boasting nine freshmen and only four seniors, and therewas speculation as to whether or not experience was going to be a major concernfor the Badgers. As the season has progressed, however, Eaves has seentremendous progression in his young players.?We have changed a whole deal, especially sinceChristmastime,? said Eaves. ?The freshmen are no longer freshmen.?This progress is evident in the stats, with freshman KyleTurris leading the team with 28 points and fellow freshman Patrick Johnsonfourth on the team with 17.Eaves has seen this change in his entire team, not just thefreshmen, and he said the overall development was apparent in Saturday’s loss.?We have grown in so many areas,? Eaves said. ?Our defensivezone coverage was better, our breakouts were better, our breakouts in theneutral zone were better and we created scoring chances because we put the puckwhere we needed to.?The team got back on the ice Monday, and Eaves is anxious tohighlight their achievements.?We will be able to give them some video feedback to say,?Hey, look at all these things we did,? and if we keep playing like that wewill get our W?s.? Street finds power play successJunior alternate captain Ben Street currently leads UW with14 goals and is on one of the two power-play units that Eaves has put together.Ironically, Street has yet to score on a power play this season. Eaves saidStreet has found success on the power play for reasons other than simplyfinding the net.?What we have always said about Ben is that he does a lot oflittle things,? Eaves said. ?If you remember the goal against the MinnesotaGophers, Ben took coverage away from Patrick Johnson by going out in the slotand being a target there.?Being a target for his teammates and a goal scorer duringfive-on-five play are not Street?s only strengths, however, said Eaves.?He does alot of those little things,? Eaves said. ?He wins face-offs, he gets pucks, soyes, he doesn?t have any power-play goals, but he is contributing to our powerplay in terms of [it] being successfullast_img read more

Angels manager Brad Ausmus gives Shohei Ohtani a day off instead of having him face Yusei Kikuchi

first_imgPITCHING PLANSAusmus said Trevor Cahill will be pushed back to pitch on Monday, which is why the Angels have a hole in their rotation for Sunday’s series finale.The Angels could go with a bullpen day, using all relievers, or they could bring someone up from Triple-A.Two of the Triple-A pitchers will big league experience – Nick Tropeano and Jaime Barría – will have been optioned for less than 10 days, so neither could return by Sunday unless they are replacing an injured player.José Suarez, who is on the 40-man roster, would be on turn to pitch on Sunday. Suarez, however, gave up six runs in 3-2/3 innings in his last Triple-A start, and Ausmus said he wasn’t even considered for Tuesday’s big league opening because they wanted him to get more time at Triple-A. Tropeano pitched instead.Lefty Dillon Peters, who pitched 5-2/3 scoreless innings in his last outing at Triple-A, also could pitch on Sunday.ALSOKevan Smith, who is on the concussion list, began to feel some symptoms when he tried to take part in batting practice a few days ago, so he was shut down again. Ausmus said he resumed workouts on Thursday, and he will not be activated until at least next Tuesday, when the Angels return home. …Related Articles “I feel like I am letting (the Japanese fans) down,” Ausmus said, “but that’s (making them happy) not my job.”Ausmus said he decided Ohtani was going to get one day off in this four-game series in Seattle, and it would be against one of the three left-handed pitchers the Angels are set to face.Ausmus said simply he preferred the matchup of Ohtani against the other two Mariners lefties, Marco Gonzales and Tommy Milone.In his first season in the majors, Kikuchi has held lefties to a .234 average, while Gonzales (.271) and Milone (.256) have been easier on lefties throughout their career.Kikuchi, whose fastball averages 93.1 mph, is also more of a power pitcher than Gonzalez (90.1 mph) and Milone (87.9). SEATTLE — Brad Ausmus is not a very popular person in Japan right now.The Angels manager filled out his lineup without Shohei Ohtani on Thursday, denying fans and dozens of Japanese media members the chance to see Ohtani face Seattle Mariners lefty Yusei Kikuchi.“Japanese baseball fans don’t like me,” Ausmus said with a smile. “Tell them I’m sorry.”Ohtani and Kikuchi attended the same high school in Japan, although at different times.

UI doctor says face shields offer more coronavirus protection

first_imgIOWA CITY — A University of Iowa researcher says the country could reopen more quickly and safely if everyone wore a clear plastic face shield.Doctor Michael Edmond, chief quality officer at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, says a universal face shield may reduce coronavirus transmission and could allow relaxing of social distancing measures.Edmond, a U-I infectious disease professor, says face shields have several advantages. “They’re more durable than face masks,” Edmond says. “The medical face masks really don’t last very long at all. Cloth masks can be reused and laundered, but face shields can just be wiped off.”Face shields cover the eyes and prevent people from touching their faces, and face shields are readily available. Edmond says he’s working on modeling studies to determine if his theories on face shield use prove valid.“If every person were in a face shield, we would reduce transmission of the virus to the point that some of these other more drastic things that we have to do like restricting people’s movements, those could be relaxed somewhat.” Volunteers in Iowa are making cloth masks and plastic face shields by the thousands for distribution to hospital workers, paramedics and other first responders.last_img read more

Powered by Firework Rohit Sharma’s first test as an opener took a turn for the best with the batsman entering the record books on Day 4. India are in the pole position to earn a positive result after setting a mammoth target of 395 runs for the Proteas to chase after Ashwin managed to pick up 7 wickets.Advertisement Image Courtesy: The Indian ExpressAfter stretching out their first innings score to a respectable 431, South African bowlers were yet again taken to the cleaners by Rohit Sharma. The Mumbai Indians captain broke a spree of records including being the first batsman to score twin centuries in their first outing as an opener, maximum number of sixes by an Indian in a test match. Sharma also had a dubious record to his name after being the first Indian to be stumped twice in a game.Mayank Agarwal’s early dismissal brought upon Cheteshwar Pujara early on who managed to get some valuable runs under his belt after a lean patch. After the dismissals of Sharma and Pujara who got to their hundred and half-century respectively, Ravindra Jadeja was promoted to accelerate the run-scoring. Valuable contributions by skipper Kohli and deputy skipper Rahane to declare their innings at 323-4.Advertisement Coming to the fourth innings, first innings’ centurion Dean Elgar could not replicate his heroics after being dismissed by Ravindra Jadeja. The Proteas ended the day at 11-1 after 9 overs.
