first_img England’s senior golfers completed a golden double when they won both the European Senior Men’s Team Championship in Denmark and the European Senior Ladies’ Championship in Bulgaria.The men started their tournament slowly, finishing in fourth place behind Scotland, Ireland and hosts Denmark after the 36-hole stroke play qualifier at Rungsted. However, they went on to beat both Sweden and Scotland 4-1 in the opening two rounds of the knockout matchplay before finishing the job with a 3 ½ – ½ victory over Ireland in the final.Ian Attoe and Alan Mew were in commanding form as the beat Karl Bornemann and Jim Carvill 6 & 5 in the foursomes. Rupert Kellock claimed a 2&1 win over Peter Sheehan in the singles and that was followed by a 5 & 4 win for Rich Jones against John O’Brien and a halve for Richard Norton against Steven Graham while Alan Condren claimed a consolation point for the Irish with a 3 & 2 victory over Paul Wharton.England Captain, Roy Smethurst, attributed the team’s success to their consistency and strength in the knockout foursomes: “All the players played well, it was the consistency of the team that was key to success. Particularly the foursomes pairing in the knockout matches. Everyone played well in strokeplay.“We wanted to make the top 8 in the strokeplay and there were some good scores there. I was disappointed to finish fourth as on paper I thought we had the best side, but since the matchplay started I put a strong team out in the foursomes and in all three matches they got us off to a strong start.”It was England’s first victory in the championship since their win on home soil at Fairhaven in 2010 and it was a huge success considering the team hadn’t made the final for several years:“We won it in 2010 and I’ve been captain for the last five years and I’m delighted to finally secure the win,” Smethurst added: “The four years prior we hadn’t been in the final at all – to win was a real achievement.“It was a fantastic week. To beat the Scots and the Irish is always a big thing and we get to play them again next week in the Senior Home Internationals.”Meanwhile, out in southeastern Europe, the England Senior Ladies’ Team were securing their own success by defeating Spain to secure their first Senior European Championship since 2014.The ladies’ team started the tournament at BlackSeaRama in Bulgaria by finishing third behind Sweden and Ireland in the 36-hole stroke play qualifier, but went on to beat both France 3-2 and Ireland 3 ½ – 1 ½ to reach the final. There they defeated Spain, looking for their first ever triumph, by the same scoreline to cap a wonderful weekend for the senior English teams.Caroline Berry and Julie Wheeldon got England off to a great start when they combined to beat Xonia Wunsch and Maria Trallero 2 & 1 in the foursomes. Macarena Campomanes beat Helen Lowe by one hole in the first singles before Paula Carver and Aileen Greenfield got England over the line with 4 & 3 and 3 & 1 victories over Maria Castillo and Lourdes Barbeito. Jackie Foster halved the final singles against Maria Orueta.England Captain, Debbie Richards, was pleased with the team’s immediate connection across the week: “Team spirit was the secret this week. Everyone got on well on and off the course, we all just jelled so well. Everyone came into the tournament playing well and we just kept it going.“When you get to the last eight, anyone can win. The talent and the golf is amazing, it’s like watching lady-pros play. It proves how much talent there is in ladies golf at the moment, and we’re only amateurs.” 7 Sep 2019 England secure double at Senior European Team Championships Tags: England Senior Men’s, England Senior Womenslast_img read more

first_imgMuch like senior Shaquan Johnson, Westinghouse (15-8) showed it has enough talent to surprise. Johnson scored 20 points and had four 3-pointers in Saturday morning’s 61-52 victory over Perry in the City league championship game. It was Westinghouse’s first City title since 1998. “This means the world, it means everything to me,” said Johnson. “When our backs are against the wall, that’s how we always play our best.” With star senior Robert Bailey held to ten points, the Bulldogs (15-8) relied on Johnson, Aaron Lyons, who added 15 points, and Affani “The Hammer” Brown. “This means a lot,” said Westinghouse senior guard Bailey. “Not just to our team, but also to the community, to see that there is still Westinghouse basketball.” Westinghouse has a great basketball tradition. Former Bulldogs Maurice Stokes is considered the greatest player in city league history. Chuck Cooper, was the first black player drafted by an NBA team, Ed Fleming and Junebug Howard. These former Westinghouse players are 4 of the top 10 greatest players ever in the city. Westinghouse’s 6-foot-9 center Affani “The Hammer” Brown is unselfish, raw and one of the most intimidating inside presence since Armon Gilliam played for Bethel Park in the 80’s. Brown live by two commandments. Thou shall not get a rebound and Thou shall not get a layup. Because of “The Hammer” Brown and his 7-foot-2 wingspan the Commodores had to rely on their outside shooters and it wasn’t meant to be. Perry shot for only 28 percent (19 of 68) for the game. There was a delay to the start of the game because Westinghouse brought the wrong color uniforms to the City league championship game and I guess that East Liberty was too far away from Homewood to go back and get the ­correct jerseys. Both teams were hit with a technical. CITY LEAGUE CHAMPS—Westinghouse boys show off their trophy after winning their first City League championship in 15 years. It was one of the biggest turnarounds in league history, from a cellar team to champs. See story and more photos in Sports section C3. (Photo by William McBride)last_img read more

first_img–30– ARCADIA, Calif. (April 9, 2015)–Favored Avenge rallied from just off the pace under Flavien Prat to register a convincing 1 ½ length win in Thursday’s $58,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita as the 3-year-old daughter of War Front negotiated 6 ½ furlongs down the track’s hillside turf course in 1:13.90. Trained by Richard Mandella and owned by Ramona Bass, LLC, she won for the second consecutive time down the hill, but her trainer is convinced she’ll do well on dirt as well.“She does like the turf but I don’t know that she can’t run on dirt,” said Mandella. “I don’t think the dirt was the reason she didn’t run well before because she didn’t run any better on the hill her first time. She’s a good filly and I just need to cultivate her a little bit.”Off at 9-5 in a field of eight fillies and mares, Avenge took command at the sixteenth pole and paid $5.60, $3.40 and $2.60. Following her maiden score down the hillside on March 15, Avenge now has two wins from three starts over the unique layout and is two for five overall. With the winner’s share of $34,800, her earnings stand at $79,600.“She was great behind the speed today,” said Prat. “She was a little bit green when she was up front last time, she was real keen. I had a lot of horse and a lot of confidence once we crossed the dirt (at the top of the stretch). I’m grateful to be riding her.”Ridden by Victor Espinoza, Sea Mona sat second throughout behind fractions of 21.64, 44.07 and 1:07.74, and when pacesetter Windy Forecast folded a sixteenth out, the winner went by on her outside. Off at 7-2, Sea Mona paid $4.00 and $3.00.Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Whisk rallied to out finish Desert Steel for the show, finishing three quarters of a length behind Sea Mona. The second choice at 3-1, Whisk paid $2.40 to show.First post time on Friday at Santa Anita is at 1 p.m. Admission gates open at 11 a.m. The $75,000 Santa Lucia Stakes for older fillies and mares will serve as the day’s headliner and has been carded as the sixth race on an eight race card. Two time Eclipse Award winner Beholder will make her 5-year-old debut in the Santa Lucia and is the heavy 1-5 morning line favorite.last_img read more

first_imgGet to know Stronach Group’s Senior Vice-President of West Coast Operations, Mr. Joe Morris. A man of distinction, Morris is always on-hand to make sure things are running smoothly at Santa Anita Park. Though he can be seen walking the grounds on a daily basis, most fans do not know his origins, his dedication to the industry, or his main philosophy.Customer Service is a top priority for Morris, as is demonstrated in a direct quote from Voyage LA –“We offer more than just one way to sit, to see and to experience everything that is Horse Racing and we do it in a way that is unlike any other track in the country.I’m most proud of our people putting on the show. The employees and the backstretch workers, who get the least amount of recognition. Horses are an eight day a week job. I know there are only seven days but it’s an eight day a week job. Doesn’t matter what the weather is like, doesn’t matter how you feel, those horses need to be taken care of and I’m so proud of the people that do that.Here at Santa Anita, we do that at the absolute highest level in the country. There is no higher level of racing than what we provide right here and the owners are the same way. Our jockeys, our trainers, our backstretch workers are all the operating at the highest level, every day.”Catch the full interview with Joe Morris – Feature Article in Voyage LAlast_img read more
