Saint Mary’s hosts annual Sophomore Parents Weekend

first_imgSaint Mary’s sophomores did not have to wait until fall break to unite with their families this year, as the College hosted its annual Sophomore Parents Weekend on Friday and Saturday.Sophomore Olivia Bentley said she enjoyed the tailgate and watch party, since it allowed her friends and parents to familiarize themselves with one another.“My favorite part was cheering on the Fighting Irish with my parents and fellow Belles,” Bentley said.Sophomore Nicole Popow said she got to spend quality time catching up with her mom, and she enjoyed the chance to talk face-to-face. “I enjoyed just being able to sit down and talk with my mom in person about things that have been going on in our lives,” Popow said.Bentley, who is from Baltimore, said she thinks parents weekends are valuable because she does not see her family often.“I think it’s very important to see my parents and family as much as possible,” she said. “Parents weekend allows me to stay connected with them and is a good excuse for them to come visit me here in South Bend.”Popow said Sophomore Parents Weekend also offered students a chance to show their families where they live during the school year. She said her mom enjoyed seeing where Popow spends most of her time.Bentley said she enjoyed showing her family her dorm room and the South Bend community. “I think being able to spend time with our family on Saint Mary’s campus is important because they are able to see the hard work we are putting in here,” she said.Sophomore Caitlyn Gibbs said she enjoyed reuniting with her family at her home away from home.“It’s hard being away from your family for so long, so any opportunity to see them is a blessing,” she said. “It also is a way for parents to show their support of their daughters’ college education. College is difficult, and it is always nice to be reminded that you have people in your corner.”Tags: Baltimore, parents, Sophomore Parents Weekend, tailgatelast_img read more

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher agree Arsenal not favourites to finish in top four ahead of Man Utd or Chelsea

I think it’s a brilliant performance when you think of Chelsea and Manchester United have spent a fortune. Chelsea have the better squad, with Eden Hazard. Arsenal are nowhere near that. When you look at that Arsenal team… there’s a lot of questions to have answered. You think of Ramsey leaving, of Ozil, the defenders, the midfielders still don’t look right, you’re not convinced about the goalkeeper, the full-backs look like they could change every week and yet, he’s getting that level of performance out them. I think it’s a brilliant performance.’ Skip PLAY Read More Arsenal currently sit in fourth place, tied on points with Chelsea (Picture: Rex Features)Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville believe Arsenal in are with a great chance to make the top four after beating Watford on Monday night, but the pundits refused to label the Gunners as favourites.Arsenal’s 1-0 win againt ten-men Watford was their first clean sheet away from home this season and their first victory on the road since Boxing Day.It was another difficult night for Arsenal despite the man advantage, with the Gunners ultimately grabbing the points thanks to an early mistake from Ben Foster.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang punched on the error to put Arsenal in front and Troy Deeney was sent off for an elbow on Lucas Torreira soon after.ADVERTISEMENT Coral BarryTuesday 16 Apr 2019 9:52 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link585Shares Man Utd’s run-in Everton (A) – April 21Man City (H) – April 24Chelsea (H) – April 28Huddersfield (A) – May 5Cardiff City (H) – May 12 Neville and Carragher have already said they expect Tottenham and Manchester United to make top four, though Arsenal are now two points ahead of the Red Devils and have a game in hand over Chelsea.AdvertisementAdvertisementDespite Arsenal’s current position, Carragher still thinks the Gunners will struggle to qualify for next season’s Champions League through the league, while Neville admitted he was impressed Unai Emery had guided such poor side into the top four.The conversation on Monday Night Football…Carragher on Arsenal’s run-in:‘No [they’re not favourites]. I said before, I didn’t think they’d get in the top four because of their away form. I didn’t expect them to win tonight, obviously the circumstances have gone with them tonight. Unai Emery is not soft, that was a great result, but not a great performance. That doesn’t matter. The fact the opposition team were down to ten men and probably should have got something, that’ll be a worry for the other away games. You look at the home games and think they’ll look after themselves for Arsenal. But the away games, you still feel they’ll have to win one of them. Looking at it… ]they should win] one [out] of three, with the team Arsenal have, but you’d still fear for them away from home. Six points for me is a guarantee and that gets them to 72. Whether they could pick up another three or four points, that would be enough. But they’re not easy games away from home.’ 1 min. storycenter_img Read More Carragher on Arsenal’s need for Champions League football:‘Unai Emery isn’t stupid. He’ll be thinking please get me into the Champions League and then he can get to grips with what’s going on here. He’s seen what he’s got in 12 months, but this team still needs sorting out. Gary’s right, he is doing a brilliant job with what he’s got. For him, it’s just get the results, forget performances. To perform like that against ten men is not great, but if he just gets the money for the defenders next season in the summer to improve this team.’ More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City Visit Advertiser website GO TO PAGE / Read More Chelsea’s run-in Burnley (H) – April 22Man Utd (A) – April 28Watford (H) – May 4Leicester City (A) – May 12 Arsenal’s run-in Crystal Palace (H) – April 21Wolves (A) – April 24Leicester City (A) – April 29Brighton (H) – May 4Burnley (A) – May 12 by Metro Top articles Video Settings 1/1 Read More Read More Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher agree Arsenal not favourites to finish in top four ahead of Man Utd or Chelsea Rio Ferdinand tells Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop struggling last_img read more

Okpekpe Race to Use MYLAPS BibTag System Again

first_imgPamodzi Sports Marketing, organisers of the IAAF silver label Okpekpe international 10km road race have revealed that MYLAPS Sports Timing, the global automatic sports timing company has been retained to provide the sixth edition of the race with an easy to use, accurate and reliable timing system.Zack Amodu, the race’s director of organisation said yesterday that the Netherlands-based company is adjudged the best timing company in the world and its services have been excellent as witnessed during the fourth and fifth editions of the race in 2016 and 2017 respectively.“We have decided to engage MYLAPS Sports Timing for the third year running not only because of its reputation worldwide but also because of the excellent services rendered in 2016 and 2017. “In 2016 we raised the bar in terms of organising road races in Nigeria by joining such world acclaimed marathons such as Boston, Rotterdam and Melbourne who rely on MYLAPS technology for the world class timing of their events,” said Amodu.”As the first IAAF silver label road race to be recognised on Nigerian nay West African soil, we are left with no choice but to organise the event in a truly world-class fashion.’‘As a label race, we must fulfill all IAAF competition rules and conditions and one of such is to  ensure an adequate timing system is put in place.“Races, especially those the IAAF has classified as world-class and prestigious like the Okpekpe race must provide fully electronic timing by use of active or passive transponders. Real time splits and final results should be made available to the media, the spectators and must be available online. And to ensure this is done we have gone for a company whose founders invented some 35 years ago automatic sports timing,” Amodu explained.Amodu also revealed that the Okpekpe tracking application launched last year is available to download for iPhone and android.”The app provides race day information as well as letting you find and track participants during the race, locate points of interest on the route, and keep up with split times, leaderboard positions and results throughout the day.”You can use the Okpekpe 10km road race mobile app to locate distance markers, first aid points and drinks stations and it does not matter whether you are a first-time spectator or a 10km road race veteran, the app will provide you with everything you need for the best possible experience on race day,’ Amodu said.The Okpekpe international 10km road race is the only road race recognised by the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS) and it will be live across the globe via Supersport,the official media partner for the race.This year’s race will hold on Saturday May 12,2018 in Okpekpe near Auchi,Edo state of Nigeria.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Shafer prepares to face Winston as QB deals with ongoing sexual assault investigation

first_imgOn Wednesday, TMZ.com reported that Heisman Trophy favorite Jameis Winston is under investigation in an open sexual assault case reported nearly a year ago. But Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer isn’t preparing for any scenario in which the Florida State quarterback doesn’t play on Saturday.“That’s out of my control,” Shafer said during his weekly press conference Thursday. “I just play the guys on the field.”FSU released a statement Wednesday that read that Winston’s status is unchanged for this weekend.“We are aware of a matter that was investigated by the Tallahassee Police Department almost a year ago,” the statement reads. “Because the investigation has not been closed by TPD, we cannot comment further at this time. We look forward to a speedy resolution of the issue. There is no change in Jameis Winston’s status.”For Syracuse, Saturday’s matchup invokes memories of the last time the Orange went up against a Heisman candidate.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn its first Atlantic Coast Conference game, the Orange was thrown right into the fire against quarterback Tajh Boyd. During this week, Shafer asked his team, “What was the last game that felt like this going in?”Clemson.There’s a “fine line,” he said, between being excited and getting too amped up. He admitted that he was probably too amped against the Tigers, but that game was a learning experience. SU now has a similar experience to look back to.“The most valuable thing we need to do going into this one is learn from our past mistakes,” Shafer said, “so we’ve been trying to really do a good job going back through those different scenarios that came up.”Shafer said that SU gave the Tigers 21 points when they played in the Carrier Dome. FSU’s offense is even better, ranking second in the nation behind only No. 4 Baylor.But for Shafer, it’s still just a game of six-second wars — maybe eight seconds because Winston “does a good job of sliding around.” Syracuse will have to win its fair share of wars to pull off a stunning upset.“We’ve got no chance in hell according to the stat books and all that other stuff,” Shafer said. “I still think we should go play them, though.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 14, 2013 at 11:44 am Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2last_img read more
