Trojans will put two streaks on the line

first_imgLooking to extend the nation’s longest winning streak to 34 games, the No. 1 USC men’s water polo team takes the short road trip south to face off against No. 9 Long Beach State.Following a successful Triton Invitational, in which the Trojans (4-0) captured the championship with relative ease, the Trojans will also be looking to extend another streak of their own, having won the past 15 straight matchups with the 49ers. The Trojans also hold a convincing 54-14 record all-time against the 49ers; including two victories last season by a combined 12 goals against the fellow Mountain Pacific Sports Federation team.Intense drive · Driver Justin Rappel will look to help the Trojans extend their 33-game winning streak against Long Beach State. – Dieuwertje Kast | Daily TrojanLast year’s 49ers team finished 14-18 overall including a 2-8 record in the very tough MPSF. Although LBSU was unable to finish with a winning record, they were able to capture tough wins against Pepperdine, Loyola Marymount, Bucknell and Princeton, all of whom are ranked among the nation’s best this season.This year’s LBSU squad returns five starters, including top goal scorer senior center Jeff Greenwood and third-team All-MPSF goalie Dereck Weibe-Bailey. Both will be making their season debuts, as this weekend’s matchup with the Trojans will be the season opener for the 49ers squad that is led by third-year coach Gavin Arroyo.Planning for an experienced and skilled goalie changes some of the preparation necessary leading up to the match, which senior two-meter and reigning Peter J. Cutino Award-winner J.W. Krumpholz, pays special attention to.“We watch a lot of video [of the goalie],” Krumpholz said. “Assistant coach Marko Pintaric breaks down all of the shots on the goalkeeper from two-meter and from the outside.”The team will hope to continue to spread the offense around against Weibe-Bailey, after 16 different Trojans scored to help USC light up the scoreboard last weekend at the Triton Invitational.“Spreading the ball around is good early on,” Krumpholz said. “Because when it comes down to later games or harder games, not everyone is going to be able to score.”After playing three top-20 teams in the Triton, continuing to play opponents of a high quality this early in the season gives the Trojans a chance to face off against the quality of team that USC are bound to see as the season progresses and teams hit their stride.“[Playing top teams] helps us work out some kinks early on,” Krumpholz said. “We are trying to get everyone warmed up and ready to go.”Although this is a non-conference matchup, the Trojans will be seeing the 49ers again later this season during MPSF conference play, at home on Oct. 17.Also looking to continue his hot start to the season will be sophomore driver Peter Kurzeka. Kurzeka, who scored eight goals during the four-game Triton, was honored on Wednesday with the MPSF Player of the Week for the first week of the season, the first such award of his young career.last_img read more

#MoggMentum…Bookmakers cut odds on Jacob Rees-Mogg taking over Tory Party leadership

first_img Submit Share Related Articles As Parliament heads towards its summer recess (20 July – 5 September), rumours swirl of a leadership contest for the divided and embattled Conservative Party.A cruel summer for PM Theresa May, who has made little to no progress on her Brexit mandate, has seen UK media report that Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson are seeking to take the throne.However, with the conservatives in dire need of a fresh face UK bookmakers have placed North-East Somerset MP Jacob Rees-Mogg at 10/1 to become next party leader.Rees-Mogg who has been described as one of the ‘spiritual leaders of Brexit’, has recently gained a cult following on social media, with his followers calling for the Tory Party to implement a #MoggMentum.The vocal support by of Rees-Mogg by hardline Brexiters has seen bookmakers cull the MPs odds from 50/1 to its current 10/1 price, sitting behind Boris Johnson and Philip Hammond at 6/1 with David Davis as the current front runner at 3/1. Speaking to SBC, Ladbrokes’ Head of Politics Matthew Shaddick commented on the market“The Moggster has gone from 50/1 to just 10/1 to be next Tory leader in the space of two weeks. He’s on the telly a lot at the moment, and put in a decent performance on Question Time the other day but I must admit to being a bit baffled by the move. I suppose if Theresa May is replaced anytime soon, the party will likely be looking for a pro-Brexit leader with some popular appeal; not so long ago Boris would have been that person, but nobody wants to back him anymore. Perhaps Rees-Mogg is the man, but I’m more than happy to lay him at 10/1.” Winning Post: Political flip-floppery leads to uncertainty for casinos August 3, 2020 StumbleUpon John O’Reilly – Erratic orders have placed UK casinos on life support August 4, 2020 Share BGC: Government must ‘act fast’ and extend furlough scheme August 11, 2020last_img read more

Curtain falls on Schenley athletics

first_imgby Malik Vincent For New Pittsburgh Courier The winner of eight out of 19 varsity boys and girls championships in the City League last year will graduate its 95th and final class next spring. This has come with the 2008 decision to permanently close the now Schenley High School facility at 129 Denniston Ave. in the city’s East End.“It’s been a difficult situation,” Schenley’s principal Sophia Facaros said. SCHENLEY HEAD FOOTBALL COACH JASON BELL Currently, there are four different high schools that compile the school’s athletic teams: (Pittsburgh Obama 6-12, University Prep 6-12 at Milliones, Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy 6-12, and Pittsburgh Schenley 12).“It’s safe to say that we have at least one kid from all of Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods in the mix here,” said Facaros. “It’s gone well though. Everyone just comes and plays for Schenley. It’s a common bond.”Schenley’s director of athletics, Ken Saybel, expressed his uncertainty for the way that things will turn out in the future as the board continues to make changes.“I’m honestly not sure of how everything is going to play out,” Saybel said. “Right now we know that this is the last year for Schenley athletics. As far as who is going to play what and for whom, also, where they’re going to play is not figured out yet and may not be for a while. If everything works out according to plan, we should have an idea by early fall, (for the 2011-12 school year).”Also, according to Saybel, the largest percentage of the current Schenley athletic program are coming from the only two schools that are a part of this who share the same building, Obama and Schenley.“Most every team that we have right now are mostly kids from Obama and Schenley, except for our golf team that is made up mostly from kids who attend Pittsburgh Science and Technology,” Saybel said.One thing that’s proposed but not confirmed is that the Obama kids who now attend the old Reizenstein building with Schenley will move a few minutes away to what is now Peabody High School.“Nothing (additional) is board approved,” said the director of the Pittsburgh Board of Education’s Athletic Department, Mike Gavlik. “We’ll be reviewing the facts and figures throughout the school year. Coaches will submit rosters and we’ll survey the amount of participation and interest, as well as locations, venue sizes, and overall feasibility—all in compliance and cooperation with the PIAA’s (Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association) and its standards.”“It’s my gut feeling, and I’m unsure, is that Obama will have enough students to independently handle their own athletics,” added Saybel. As far as everyone else who is involved, I’m really not sure.”As for the other two schools, these notions are not so projectable.“We’d like to give UPrep and Sci-Tech the same opportunities that Obama may have, if possible,” said Gavlik. “I stress that none of this is approved by the board, however, there are some thoughts that are being pushed around about how each sport will play out when we get the information that is needed to make these final decisions. It will strictly depend on what is gathered.”“There are many theories and ideas that are floating around about the future of the students that attend here,” said Facaros. “But really, the students have handled the situation as best as they could. It may not happen like that again, we’ve been very lucky. The student-athletes are just interested in exceeding what was accomplished last year when we experienced extreme success. They are focused on going out on top.” Schenley is currently practicing at Milliones School.(Malik Vincent can be reached at [email protected])last_img read more
