End of labour dispute good news for high school athletes

first_imgMoreira is doing his best to keep the Mount Sentinel Senior Girl’s Volleyball program afloat by hosting a tournament this weekend.”We have had four teams drop out so we are scrambling a bit,” Moreira explained. “Job action has taken a bit of a toll.”At L.V. Rogers High School, senior girl’s coach Jennifer Kidd hosted the first practice of the season Tuesday and will attend the Mount Sentinel tourney beginning Friday at Selkirk College in Castlegar.Meanwhile a few of the fieldhockey players have been staging informal games in Nelson to try to stay sharp for the upcoming season.The Kootenay Cross Country season begins October 1 in Kaslo.”We will continue to have races set up on Wednesdays at 4 p.m. and will try to fit in 3-4 races before the Zone Championship on October 22,” a cross country spokesperson said on the zone website. Not only did the school strike/lockout affect classroom studies for students throughout the province, but also many extracurricular events including high school sports in BC.The late start has put a damper on the fall sport season — which includes sports as fieldhockey, boy’s soccer, volleyball and cross country running.Coaches are now playing catchup to try to get somewhat of a season in before zone playoffs and provincial tournaments happen in October and November.”BCSS (BC School Sports) has confirmed that the seasons will not change – no extension to fall season,” Mount Sentinel volleyball coach Joe Moreira said Tuesday.last_img read more

Lions display their balance in Showcase win over Jags

Lions display their balance in Showcase win over Jags

first_img Middletown North High School’s Jason Huelbig (l) tries to put up a shot against Jackson Memorial’s Brandon Holup during the Boardwalk Hoop Group Classic at Long Branch High School on Jan. 14. The game pitted the Shore Conference’s two best teams, and it was the Lions who pulled out a 36-32 win in the defensive game. PHOTOS BY ERIC SUCAR staff Jackson Memorial High School’s Brandon Holup held explosive-scoring Jason Huelbig to eight points, but the Jaguars could not stop the rest of a well-balanced Middletown North lineup that held on for a 36-32 victory at Long Branch on Jan. 14 in the Boardwalk Hoop Group Showcase.In the highly anticipated showdown of the top two ranked teams in the Shore, No. 1 Middletown North avenged a loss to Jackson Memorial in the NJSIAA Central Jersey Group IV semifinals last season to improve to 12-1. Jackson Memorial slipped to 10-1.“Holup is on the other team’s best player every time. He can guard a 6-7 guy; he can guard 6-1 guys. Our defense is built around that,” said Jackson Memorial coach Joe Fagan. “Although Huelbig has gotten a lot of the attention, it’s not just about him. They’re a well-balanced team.” Middletown North High School’s Tim Frawley (r) tries to get a piece of the shot of Jackson Memorial’s Brandon McDonnell during the Boardwalk Hoop Group Showcase. Cody Thompson led Middletown North with 12 points, and Will Bowman and Tim Frawley added seven each, although Huelbig still got the Showcase’s Outstanding Player award for his team. Brian Kenny led Jackson Memorial with 10 and got his team’s Outstanding Player award.Huelbig was not disappointed about hitting only two field goals after slamming four dunks and scoring 18 points last week in a rousing 19-point victory over Christian Brothers Academy in Shore Conference A North Division. Jackson Memorial likewise had come off a big victory over Southern Regional in a battle of unbeatens in A South. “Cody is our X factor,” Huelbig said of Thompson, who also is the quarterback of the football team. “When I’m not putting up a lot of numbers, four different scorers can do the same thing.”“We have balance and feel pretty good about it,” said Middletown North coach Mike Iasparro.Middletown North closed the first half with six points — the first four on a layup and a jumper from the right by Thompson — for a 22-17 lead that it held until Holup sank a three-pointer and Kenny hit a driving layup with 1:35 left, which tied it at 32-32. Huelbig put Middletown North back ahead with two free throws. Jackson Memorial missed two free throws, and Frawley stole the ball and sank the first of two free throws with :08.6 left for a 35-32 lead. Thompson then grabbed a loose ball and Frawley was fouled, hitting one of two free throws with two seconds left. “I wasn’t worried about our missed shots,” said Fagan. “I just thought we turned the ball over too much.”While Huelbig was held down on one end, he also limited Brandon McDonnell to five points.“Not often do we put him on the opposing team’s best player, but with the way we matched up to them, we had to do it,” said Iasparro. “We gave him [Huelbig] the challenge and he stepped up to it and played tremendous defense, and Will Bowman’s pressure on the ball takes teams out of their set offense and comfort zone.”That pressure and tight defense down low inhibited Jackson Memorial, which has been struggling with scoring.Middletown North also had trouble scoring as it altered many of its shots against its much taller opponent and played without Huelbig for six minutes in the second half when he picked up his fourth foul.“I thought we had a lot of opportunities in the course of the game to gain control of the tempo and didn’t,” said Fagan.The point total ties a season low for Jackson Memorial dating back to the WOBM championship game in late December when it beat Toms River North in a defensive struggle. Middletown North feels this game will give it an added push.“This boosted our confidence and brought us a lot closer together,” Thompson said.It’s back to work in the A North for the Lions this week. Today they take on the only team to defeat them, Manalapan, at home in Middletown. Tipoff is 4 p.m.The Braves along with Freehold Township and Middletown North all began this week with one division loss.Middletown North travels to Freehold Township on Monday (Jan. 23) in another key division game (4 p.m. start).

Area wrestling teams chasing wins at District 22 tournament

Area wrestling teams chasing wins at District 22 tournament

first_imgBy MATTHEW ROCCO Correspondent A fter missing out on state titles, Long Branch High School, Ocean Township High School and Christian Brothers Academy (CBA) will look to bounce back this weekend at the District 22 wrestling tournament.Long Branch advanced to the NJSIAA Central Jersey Group II championship with a 30-18 win over perennial state rival Delaware Valley Regional High School. The Green Wave then lost to Wall High School, 33-26, in the finals.CBA and Ocean Township met similar fates in their sectional finals. St. Augustine College Preparatory School topped the Colts, 37-25, in the deciding matchup for Non-Public South A. Ocean Township fell short of a Central Jersey Group III title in a 36-23 loss to Brick Township High School.Now the teams will regroup and square off against fellow Shore Conference members in the District 22 tournament, which will be hosted by Red Bank Regional High School on Feb. 21-22. This is the last team championship of the year.Long Branch took home the team title last season, finishing ahead of second-place Ocean Township. Middletown High School South placed third in the 2013 tournament.All four of the Green Wave’s district champions from last year have graduated. Junior Andy Hernandez (120/126 pounds) and senior Connor Mullan (182) lead this year’s team with 27 wins apiece, while Hernandez has lost just one bout. Both are among the best District 22 grapplers in their respective weight classes.Seniors Nick Menkin (145), Arturo Rios (170), Brandon Perez (152) and T.J. Covin (195) should also be in the running for individual titles. Menkin is 26-7 on the season.Freshman Austin Cannon has quickly emerged as a contender at 138 pounds, logging 13 wins and just one loss so far. He will be competing in the same weight class as CBA senior Erik Beshada and Middletown High School North’s Paul Capaldo. Beshada has a record of 29-2 this season and won gold at 126 pounds in 2013.Capaldo, a junior, is 26-6 for Middletown North, which hasn’t had a District 22 champion since 2010. Also competing for a title are senior Anthony Fabiano (170), freshman Thomas Anderson (152), junior Fred Svenson (160) and sophomore Chad Freshnock (182), who has an impressive 29-3 record.Crosstown rival Middletown South has a strong contender in senior Dom Franciosi, who is 26-3 at 126 pounds. He won the District 22 title at 113 pounds last year. Meanwhile, junior Matt Best (152) has a record of 28-3, and senior Kevin Fisher (170) is 20-6. Heavyweight Taylor Hendrickson, a senior, could also make a run for gold. In addition to Beshada, CBA is bringing another defending champion to the districts, Mike Oxley (195). The senior recently hit the 30-win milestone for the season and has been defeated only twice.Undefeated sophomore Sebastian Rivera also has 30 wins and will likely be a top competitor for the individual title at 106 pounds. Fellow CBA sophomores Dylan Van Sickell (126) and Will Oxley (170) are also grapplers to keep an eye on in District 22 play.Ocean Township’s Max Rallo could be the favorite at 120 pounds after winning the title in 2013. Rallo, 25-3 on the season, recently posted his 100th career victory and has won district championships in each of the last two years.Ocean Township, the all-time leader with 13 team titles in the District 22 tournament, is also counting on senior Andrew Mac- Neille (132) and junior Costa Poniros (126).The likely favorite at 132 pounds is Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School junior Marcus Iwama, who has put up a 24- 2 record going into the tournament.Raritan High School expects to have several wrestlers in the running for a gold medal, including junior Dylan Seidenberg (132) and senior Kyle Polonsky (220). With a 27-4 record, senior Connor Sheehan may be the tournament’s top wrestler at 160 pounds. Other likely favorites are seniors Kyle Lynch (182), who is 31-0 this season, and Pat Toal (heavyweight).Keansburg High School’s top contender is 195-pound junior Tyree Sutton, who placed first at 132 pounds as a freshman in 2012. Junior Dylan Alt (170) is 20-4 and could make a run for gold as well.Keyport High School, looking for its first individual champion in three years, could have its best shot in Dan O’Steen, a 220-pound senior whose record is 18-5.Red Bank Catholic High School has the longest drought at 13 years since its last gold medal winner in the District 22 tournament. Senior Shawn McCord gives the Caseys a solid chance at claiming an individual title this year, going 21-1 at 220 pounds.Home team Red Bank Regional graduated last year’s champion at 170 pounds, Dillion Stambaugh. This weekend, sophomore Tom Hinz, who is 19-9, may be in the mix for a title at 145 pounds.For the wrestlers themselves, the district tournament is the first step toward the state championships in Atlantic City. Individual champions, as well as the second- and thirdplace finishers, in each weight class will move on to the Region 6 tournament at the Pine Belt Arena in Toms River on Feb. 26, Feb. 28 and March 1.last_img read more

No party, no Administration is immune to the fate that has befallen this Govt

No party, no Administration is immune to the fate that has befallen this Govt

first_imgDear Editor,Reference Sherwood Lowe’s letter titled “For many Guyanese the motion of no-confidence is not a matter of legalities only” which was thought-provoking. Thanks to him first for a willingness to engage. It is only by continuing the exchange of views that Guyanese will come to understand each other’s positions. To offer a slightly different vantage point (which I have stated in these columns repeatedly): APNU/AFC won by one seat, the slenderest of margins, they lost the vote of no-confidence by one vote, which is all it took to bring the Government down. The possibility of the APNU/AFC Government falling was in prospect from the moment it started its term of office. Anyone who has observed the precarious existence of coalition Governments that routinely scrape to victory in Europe (and subsequently fall) would have realised this. To the dismay of many local observers, the coalition governed as though they had no need to compromise or to consult or try to include other groups or build consensus. But then this is the standard procedure in Guyana. Our politicians all have a “winner-takes-all” mentality. The coalition is not the first to be guilty of this attitude. It is outdated. Demographics suggest strongly that we all need to wake up. Coalition Governments with slender majorities are likely to be the norm rather than the exception in Guyana’s future. No party and no Administration is immune to the fate that has befallen this one.Yours faithfully,Isabelle de Caireslast_img read more

Ruimveldt Industrial Estate roads in deplorable condition

Ruimveldt Industrial Estate roads in deplorable condition

first_imgOver the last several years, businesses in the Ruimveldt Industrial Estate area have continued operations in the midst of deplorable roads. This situation continues although the numerous private sector entities have provided hundreds of jobs for a large contingent of workers. Workers are forced to brave the gaping potholes as they traverse the area on their way to work.A tough task: This motorcar navigates its way through a section of the road at Ruimveldt Industrial EstateA section of the road on the Western half of the Industrial Estate which was rehabilitated some time agoThe majority of the deteriorating road conditions are found on the eastern half of the Ruimveldt Industrial Estate area, while several roads on the western half were rehabilitated.While it is not clear why just one section of the road was fixed, outgoing Deputy Mayor, Sherod Duncan, told Guyana Times on Saturday that he will look into the matter.The soon to be replaced official made these comments on the side-lines of the Movement Against Parking Meters, Town Hall meeting. It should be noted that Duncan was the elected representative of Georgetown’s Constituency 14 after the 2016 Local Government Elections. This constituency runs from the back of South Ruimveldt and extends onto the Demerara River, encompassing Industrial Site. In a published letter to the press late last year, the Deputy Mayor recognised that the area included a “huge piece of real estate” but cautioned that there were “budget deficits” to provide services to the area.The categories of services in the Industrial Estate range from distribution, bond storage, hardware materials for purchase, and motor vehicle body work and repairs.Some the businesses in the area include Distribution Service Limited (DSL), Thriving Auto-body and Repair Shop, E-Networks Inc, bonds belonging to Kissoons and Banks DIH, Sunfoods and Twins Manufacturing.last_img read more

De Gea stars as United thump Liverpool

De Gea stars as United thump Liverpool

first_img0Shares0000MANCHESTER, December 14- Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Robin van Persie scored as Manchester United rubbed salt into Liverpool’s wounds with a crushing 3-0 home victory in the Premier League on Sunday.Rooney and Mata both found the net before half-time, the latter apparently from an offside position, before van Persie added a third to avenge United’s loss to Liverpool by the same scoreline at Old Trafford in March. Victory, United’s sixth in a row, allowed Louis van Gaal’s side to move back to within eight points of leaders Chelsea and five of champions Manchester City, fuelling hopes of a slow-burning title push.“I think we have scored wonderful goals,” United manager van Gaal told Sky Sports.“In spite of the goals, we gave a lot of chances away. That was every time we gave unnecessary passes away and that is how we have to improve.”United’s fans finished the game by chanting “You’re getting sacked in the morning!” at Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers, whose side limped out of the Champions League in mid-week and now trail United by 10 points.But Liverpool might have emerged from the game with more credit had it not been for a stunning display by United goalkeeper David de Gea, who denied Raheem Sterling and substitute Mario Balotelli three times each.“We created so many chances today and David de Gea was man of the match,” said Rodgers.“Today we created opportunities, which we haven’t been doing. I’ll keep searching for the solutions.”Rodgers had reacted to the poor form of his own goalkeeper, Simon Mignolet, by dropping him in favour of Brad Jones, and the Australian’s presence on the pitch at kick-off was not the only novelty.Both teams lined up with three-man defences, with midfielder Michael Carrick marshalling United’s back line and Liverpool full-back Glen Johnson playing in a narrower role than usual.De Gea was presented with United’s player of the month award prior to kick-off and he demonstrated his value to van Gaal in the 12th minute by sliding out to thwart Sterling from Adam Lallana’s incisive pass.– Johnson forced off – Within a minute, United were ahead. Antonio Valencia left Joe Allen chasing shadows with a cute nutmeg on the right flank before cutting the ball back for the unmarked Rooney to sweep home from 15 yards.With Rickie Lambert named on the bench alongside the fit-again Balotelli, it was left to Sterling to give Liverpool a cutting edge.The England forward, who turned 20 this week, teed up Steven Gerrard for a low shot that De Gea saved comfortably and then left Phil Jones for dead inside the United box, only for the Spaniard to deny him at the near post.Just as in their 2-1 win at Southampton last Monday, United had gone ahead against the run of play, and Liverpool’s cause was not helped when Johnson went off holding his groin in the 25th minute. Kolo Toure replaced him.There was more woe to come as United inflated their lead five minutes before half-time with a goal that carried more than a hint of injustice.Van Persie’s head made only fleeting contact with Ashley Young’s left-wing cross, but it meant that Mata, who followed in to head home at the back post, was offside. Unfortunately for Liverpool, the officials missed it.Rodgers sent on Balotelli for Lallana at half-time, but the visitors continued to misfire in the United box.Jordan Henderson headed over from a Sterling cross and when Jonny Evans’s careless square pass gave Sterling a free run on goal, a heavy touch took him wide and De Gea sped out to dismay him again.Seconds later Van Persie gave Rooney a sight of goal at the other end, only for the captain to shoot tamely at Jones, while the Dutchman then prodded wide from Valencia’s drilled cross.De Gea superbly palmed a close-range shot from Balotelli onto the crossbar to leave Rodgers ruing his luck again and in the 71st minute it was all over.Dejan Lovren did not get enough purchase on his attempt to clear Rooney’s low cross and Mata cleverly teed up Van Persie to brush home his fourth goal in four games.Still De Gea stood firm, saving twice from Balotelli in the latter stages, while Jones tipped a shot from Van Persie over the bar.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
