first_imgWomen’s Soccer boasts Daktronics All-American Selections Share Dec. 16, 2007PENSACOLA, Fla. – When the 2007 Daktronics NCAA Division II All-American team for Women’s Soccer was released, it marked the third straight season that West Florida has been represented with an All-American selection.Sophomore forward Dernelle Mascall earned All-American selection, while sophomore goalkeeper Courtney Jones was named Honorable Mention All-American represented UWF Women’s Soccer by being named to the Daktronics All-American Team. Mascall was the leading offensive weapon for the Argonauts this season, while Jones is the anchor of a tremendous West Florida defense that put together a run of over 900 minutes without allowing a goal.Argonaut Head Coach Joe Bartlinski talked about his two stars, “I am excited for these two players and their well deserved honors. Courtney led a defense that was number one in the country for shutout percentage at both the DI and DII level, and that is impressive.” Jones posted an impressive 0.44 goals against average this season, as she only allowed eight goals in 1,623 minutes of play and faced 114 shots from the opponents. She posted 14 shutouts this season, and now has a career total of 25 shutouts, which is among the top five best ever in the Gulf South Conference.Bartlinski is a defensive minded coach, but he was equally excited for his offensive weapon, as he talked about Mascall’s season. “Dernelle’s stats were equally impressive, as she smashed the UWF single season goals, and total points records. Finishing the season, ranked third nationally in both DI and DII for total points, just speaks for itself. However, the accomplishment I am most impressed with, is D (Dernelle Mascall) had 10 game winning goals, something unheard of at this level. She not only scored goals, but scored them at the right times.”Mascall scored 23 goals this season, including four hat-tricks, and her ten assists gave her a total of 56 points. Impressively, Mascall scored 23 goals with only 33 shots on goal. Her statistics show a very efficient offensive player, and to go with Jones’ defensive stats, the two stars were a big part of the Argonauts being ranked in the top 10 nationally for the entire season. Bartlinski concluded by saying, “What I am excited most about with both of these youngsters, is that they are both just sophomores. Their careers and the UWF future for Women’s Soccer is very bright.”For the first time in league history, the Gulf South Conference was represented by five players on the NCAA Division II Women’s Soccer All-America team. Two Montevallo players and one Ouachita Baptist player joined Mascall and Jones as All-American representatives from the GSC. Montevallo junior forward Stacey Balaam earned First Team honors while junior defender Adele Jackson was Honorable Mention. The honors are the first in Lady Falcons’ history. Ouachita Baptist sophomore defender Sarah Reed earned the Lady Tigers’ first All-America selection, as she was named to the third Team. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

first_img Richie McLernon, rider of fourth home Holywell, said: “He stays all day and you can’t ask any more. He gave me his all today.” His trainer Jonjo O’Neill said: “We’re delighted with our little horse. It was a brilliant race really. “We had to put a lot of effort in with his jumping. He’d be better on better ground, but today the best horse won. “Our horse ran a blinder and we’re thrilled to bits with him. “The winner is a fantastic horse and they couldn’t catch him.” Paul Nicholls, trainer of the vanquished favourite Silviniaco Conti, who was seventh, said: “Noel (Fehily) is not really sure. My view is that the ground might have been deep enough for him. It was a bit more testing than we thought. “Watching that I suppose he is better on a flatter track on better ground. If he’s fresh and well we’ll probably head to Aintree with him now.” The Willie Mullins-trained six-year-old travelled superbly for Ruby Walsh but could not reel in the pacesetting winner. Ricci said: “He’s run a stormer, I thought we had him but fair play to the winner, to run in this race as a novice and to do that from the front was spectacular.” It was a case of so near yet so far for owner Rich Ricci in the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup after his Djakadam had to settle for second behind Coneygree. Press Association He added: “He’ll be back next year. We’ve had a great week.” His rider Ruby Walsh said: “He’s run a blinder. He made a few little jumping errors, but he’s run a blinder for a six-year-old. “He stuck his head out and gave me everything he had.” Mullins said: “We had a fantastic run and I was just commending the winner’s brave decision to run in the Gold Cup. It paid off and the winner did it the hard way in front. “I was delighted with my horse. He ran well. He jumped great and got a good position. I don’t have any excuses and Ruby doesn’t either. “Our fellow is only a six-year-old and the winner’s an eight-year-old. In those conditions, when stamina comes to the fore, age will always beat youth. We’ll go on to Punchestown.” Noel Meade said of third-placed Road To Riches: “He ran a great race. We’re delighted and disappointed. What other way can you be? “We thought we had a chance at the last. It’s possible the ground was a disadvantage to us. Maybe it wasn’t, but we think it might have been.” last_img read more

first_img(REUTERS) – Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan has taken full responsibility for their shocking home defeat to Test rookies Afghanistan in the one-off match at Chattogram and says it would be best if someone else took over the captaincy.The 32-year-old all-rounder, widely regarded as the best cricketer Bangladesh has ever produced, took the Test captaincy in 2017 from Mushfiqur Rahim for his second stint at the helm after leading them between 2009 and 2011.War-torn Afghanistan, playing only their third match after being inducted as a Test-playing nation two years ago, completed a famous victory by defeating Bangladesh by 224 runs with 3.2 overs left on the final day on Monday. “It will be best if I didn’t have to lead,” Shakib told reporters after the match. “I personally believe it will be good for my game.“And if I have to continue leading, then obviously there is a lot to discuss about (with the board).”Shakib was the lone shining light for Bangladesh during the 50-overs World Cup in England, finishing third on the run-getters’ list with 606 from eight innings while also picking up 11 wickets with his left-arm orthodox spin bowling. Following the World Cup he took a break during Bangladesh’s dismal tour of Sri Lanka, where they lost all three one-day internationals but his return failed to inspire the side to victory against Rashid Khan’s Afghanistan.Heavy showers allowed little play on the final day, leaving Afghanistan with a little more than 18 overs in the final session to take the remaining four wickets and force a result, while Bangladesh had high hopes of avoiding defeat with Shakib unbeaten on 44.However, he edged spinner Zahir Khan off the first ball of the session while attempting a cut shot to gift Afghanistan their big breakthrough. “I am really disappointed,” Shakib said. “The whole blame goes on my shoulders.“I was very nervous when I came out to bat, and got out the first ball and it was my fault. I should have taken more responsibility and could have avoided the cut shot.“We had to play only one hour and 10 minutes, and I got out the first ball. So it became harder for the team. The dressing room would have felt more comfortable if I had stayed out.”Giving his team zero marks out of 100 for the match, Shakib said they had to produce better players if they were to become more consistent. “If we want to play well consistently, we need to improve our quality and need more quality players.”last_img read more

first_img Published on March 10, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Stephen: sebail01@syr.edu | @Stephen_Bailey1 Comments Christine Ordway called ‘out.’ But Ordway, the No. 1 singles player on the Cornell tennis team, quickly got a disagreement from Syracuse’s Emily Harman.The junior co-captain Harman had just double-faulted for the second consecutive point, and appealed to the line judge. Tied 5-5 in the first set, the judge confirmed Ordway’s controversial call.‘It was a very close moment,’ Harman said. ‘… She was standing on the court and wasn’t watching my court. I just wanted her to keep an eye on my court while she was standing there.’But after that point, Harman seemed to play with an even fiercer competitive edge. Despite the two double faults, she won that game and never looked back. She put aside those double faults to close out the set 7-5 — with consecutive service aces. All this after trailing 4-1 earlier in the match.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn Syracuse’s 5-2 victory over Cornell on Thursday, Harman stepped up from the No. 1 singles position to get her team back on the right track after it lost the doubles point. Harman took the second set 6-4 to close her individual win. The match was her second at the top position this year, and improves her singles record to 9-2.SU coach Luke Jensen said her ability to maintain mental strength while behind showed more grit impressive than the victory itself.‘It’s not when you’re winning, it’s when you’re down that matters,’ Jensen said of Harman’s toughness. ‘Down 4-1, you’re out of that set most of the time.’The victory was Harman’s second on the evening. Teaming with freshman Maddie Kobelt, the pair knocked off Kelly Comolli and Shannon Comolli 8-5 in the No. 1 doubles match. The tandem has become a fixture at the top position in SU’s lineup. With the win, Harman and Kobelt improved to 8-3 in doubles play.They’ve grown to be comfortable playing together and complement each other.‘We’ve built that trust in each other,’ Kobelt said. ‘We know that we can both depend on each other to hold up our end of the deal with making our returns, making our first serves, and getting up to close for the volley.’While Kobelt brings a lethal serve to the court, Harman provides experience and a very well-rounded game.Jensen has witnessed Harman grow into an intense competitor. He said that she came into the program with a lot of confidence and has transferred that into the rock-solid performer she is now, with the ability to take her game to the next level in clutch situations.‘Competitors compete,’ Jensen said. ‘And for this level sometimes it calls for an extra drive where you’ve got to dig in somewhere deep inside and find it. ‘There were no line disputes in the doubles match. Kobelt and Harman took care of business for the third straight match. However, these disagreements occur on a regular basis, Jensen said.Jensen trains his squad to not let these calls get under their skin. He said that he trains his squad to compete at a professional level. Rather than arguing with officials, the players are told to accept whatever decision is made by officials.‘We train them, coach them to the umpire, appeal it, and that’s final,’ Jensen said.Kobelt, and the rest of the team know that these line calls are just a part of the game. The key to coming out on top of these decisions is to not let them become bothersome during the match. Something that Harman and the Orange did en route to victory.‘Sometimes the line doesn’t go in your favor,’ Kobelt said. ‘We’ve all faced it. It’s just another adversity we have to all go through, but we’re prepared for that.’sebail01@syr.educenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
