Pam Shively

first_imgYesterday I did an article on the practice of hiring men to officiate high school games over women even when the woman would be equal or better than the man.  This is the case for Pam Shively of East Central who is in much better condition and ability to referee high school boys games than many of her male counterparts.  I recently had a conversation with Pam, and she related the reluctance of most schools to give her the opportunity  to referee boys games.Pam not only referees basketball games, but she also is an accomplished official for volleyball.  She is a starter for both cross country and track meets.  When Pam is hired to do any of these events, you can bet that she is as prepared as any official can be.  Because of age and physical condition, many of her male counterparts cannot keep up with the pace of today’s basketball games.  Pam is able to do this because she is still very active as a physical education teacher and participant in adult sports.I hope Pam is given the opportunity to do boys games before she gets discouraged and does not keep up her license to officiate men’s contests.  Pam is also an accomplished collegiate official.  Keep it up, Pam!last_img read more

Jones appointed to  Cricket Australia board

first_imgFORMER women’s Test player Mel Jones has been appointed to fill the vacant director’s role on Cricket Australia’s (CA) board.CA on Wednesday confirmed Jones’ elevation as Victoria’s nominee, which makes her the first former female player to become a state-appointed director.The move officially ends the chapter of one of the most tumultuous periods in the board’s history.Chairman Earl Eddings had been the previous Victorian nominee, but moved to fill one of the three independent roles earlier this year.That came after he lost the backing of his state when he took over from David Peever as the game’s chair amid the fallout from the cultural review last year.Mark Taylor and Bob Every are two others to have stood down in the past 15 months.However Jones’ appointment now returns the board to its full complement of nine, with six state-nominated directors and three independents.“Mel has been an active and inspiring part of the cricket fabric for many years and we are privileged to have her join the board,” Eddings said.“Australian cricket has been undergoing significant change over the past two years and I’ve no doubt Mel’s experience on and off the field will be an asset to the team as we move into our next phase.“Mel’s commitment to the game and her advocacy, particularly for women in sport, will only bolster our continued focus on advancing cricket to be the number one sport for women and girls.”Jones played five Tests and 61 one-dayers for Australia, winning two World Cups.She has remained in the game and filled various sports administration roles since her international retirement in 2005, including in indigenous communities, schools, women’s and pathways cricket.She is also one of the most prominent commentators on the global circuit.“I have much admiration for the work that has been undertaken over the past 18 months in particular, an incredibly challenging time for cricket, and testament to its place in the hearts of Australians,” Jones said.(AAP)last_img read more

Syracuse makes too many mistakes to stick with No. 1 Florida State in 38-20 loss

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Just as quickly as Syracuse received a breath of life, it gave it right back.After pouncing on a mishandled punt, the Orange was set up at the Florida State 21-yard line with a chance to cut the Seminoles’ lead from 18 points to two scores.AJ Long, as steady as he’d been to that point of the game, reminded everyone he’s still a freshman. Facing pressure, he threw a pass that FSU’s Nate Andrews picked off and the Carrier Dome groaned as another scoring opportunity for SU was lost.The Orange did snap a string of 100-plus minutes without scoring a touchdown on Saturday afternoon, but it wasn’t enough. SU’s (2-4, 0-2 Atlantic Coast) youth took the team a step in the right direction, yet the recurrence of missed opportunities shot down any chance the Orange had of staging an upset in a 38-20 loss to the No. 1 Seminoles (6-0, 4-0).Florida State and Jameis Winston flexed their muscle and powered through SU for the victory, spoiling Tim Lester’s debut as SU offensive coordinator before a gathering of 43,295 in the Carrier Dome.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I really believed we could beat this team,” SU head coach Scott Shafer said, “and we didn’t get that done today.”But, considering all that’s happened in the last three weeks, the discussion of missed chances — and not embarrassment at the hands of the nation’s top-ranked team — is a positive in itself.After Austin Wilson threw an interception on SU’s first drive, the Orange settled for a field goal after three failed attempts at the end zone from inside the 10 on Long’s first collegiate drive under center. On the first play of the next drive, Durell Eskridge dropped an interception on a deep ball from Winston, who then made SU pay by leading the Seminoles down the field for a 17-3 edge.“You can put them up against anyone,” SU cornerback Julian Whigham said.Midway through the second quarter, the Orange pounced on a fumble inside the 20, but again settles for a field goal. SU then marched inside the 10 right before the break, but came away with nothing and the Seminoles led 24-6 heading into the half.“We’ve just got to keep working on it,” left tackle Sean Hickey said. “I sound like a broken record, but it’s what you have to do.”By halftime, it had been more than 95 minutes of game time since Syracuse’s offense had finished a drive with a touchdown. Lester’s reign as offensive coordinator had yet to resolve that issue. The bend of the Orange’s defense was on the verge of breaking against Winston, who orchestrated another lengthy drive to pile on more points on FSU’s first possession of the second half. Then, momentum slowly churned in SU’s direction.The Orange finally struck gold on offense with a well-placed, 22-yard touchdown pass from Long to fellow freshman Steve Ishmael. After that, the SU defense forced a three-and-out to get the ball back.But on the Orange’s next possession, Long’s inexperience got the best of him as he threw the interception to Andrews. He and Ishmael would link up again for a touchdown to draw the score to 38-20, but a few more missed chances in the second half kept SU at that length.Cornerback Brandon Reddish got his hands on a would-be interception three plays before Winston threw his third touchdown pass of the day. Winston later fumbled from the pocket, but SU couldn’t run it down. Long, hit as he threw, tossed an interception with five minutes left that sent fans to the exits.Shafer doesn’t believe in moral victories. Hickey can’t accept them, either.But looking at how the Seminoles dismantled the Orange, 59-3, last year and how the past three weeks have transpired, Hickey found a bit of solace in progress.“It’s a step in the right direction,” Hickey said. “Last year, we felt like we didn’t get that respect because we didn’t deserve it. We got destroyed. “And this year we wanted to make them earn the win and earn some respect and I felt we did that.” Comments Published on October 11, 2014 at 3:44 pm Contact Phil: pmdabbra@syr.edu | @PhilDAbblast_img read more

F1: Hamilton Wins Fourth British Grand Prix

first_imgLewis Hamilton took a dominant victory yesterday in a hectic British Grand Prix to cut team-mate Nico Rosberg’s championship lead to four points.Hamilton led every lap of a race that started under the safety car in wet conditions but dried, to take his fourth career win at Silverstone.Rosberg in the other Mercedes was left to battle back to second past the Red Bull of the impressive Max Verstappen.Rosberg had a late scare with a gearbox problem that could yet cost him second.With five laps to go, Rosberg hit a problem which required him to reset systems in the car and then avoid seventh gear – shifting straight from sixth to eighth.He hung on in second place but may yet lose it as the team are under investigation for the detail of the help they gave him over the radio, which may have transgressed limitations on the amount of help drivers can be given by teams.Rosberg said: “It was a very critical problem because I was stuck in seventh gear and about to stop on track.” He said he was confident what he had been told was within the rules.Hamilton’s win sent the 135,000 fans packed into the famous old track into paroxysms of joy as they cheered Hamilton’s progress to the flag on the last lap.The world champion went over to celebrate with the fans at Club corner after parking his car up at the end of the race before soaking up their cheers on the podium.It was an intoxicating race, with action throughout the field, featuring wheel-to-wheel racing and a number of spins and off-track moments as drivers struggled on the tricky track surface.“I am so grateful,” said Hamilton. “We’ve got the best fans here, thank you so much. The good English weather came out. It was so tricky in those conditions. But that’s what I love about this race – something always happens.”Hamilton drove impressively throughout on a track made treacherous by a heavy downpour about 15 minutes before the start.The sun had come out before the race got under way, but the track was drenched and it was five laps before race director Charlie Whiting felt the conditions were safe enough to let the drivers off the leash.This triggered a series of pit stops on successive laps as drivers swapped ‘extreme’ wet tyres for intermediates.Hamilton pulled out three seconds on Rosberg in the first half-lap after the start as a bunch of midfield drivers pitted immediately and he, Rosberg and Verstappen then pitted after two laps.The Dutchman closed on Rosberg, catching him by lap 15, and he passed him with a superb move around the outside of the daunting Becketts swerves on lap 16.Verstappen held on to second despite making his pit stop for dry-weather ‘slick’ tyres a lap later than the Mercedes drivers, rejoining about five seconds ahead of Rosberg on lap 18.Both Hamilton and Verstappen were among a series of drivers who fell prey to a wet patch on the entry to the fast Abbey corner but were able to continue without damage to their positions.Rosberg inched closer and closer to Verstappen until he was on his tail by lap 30, with 22 still to go.But it took the German another eight laps to get close enough on the exit of the Becketts swerves to close up on Hangar Straight and sweep past the Red Bull around the outside of the fast Stowe corner.Verstappen may yet recover the place, depending on what the stewards decide.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

DRC defender allegedly has four birthdays

first_imgThe age cheating problem that has dogged African players for some time, resurfaced in the past few days, with reports in England alleging that Anderlecht defender Chancel Mbemba has four birthdays.Currently listed as a 20-year-old, a Sportsmail report claims Mbemba, who is set to join Newcastle United in an 8.5m pounds deal, has at other times had different birthdays.When Mbemba started his career in his homeland, he was said to have been registered as an August 08 1988 birth, while on joining Anderlecht in 2012, his new birthday was stated as August 8, 1995.He was said to have been registered with a November 30, 1991 birthday during qualifying for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, while the report claimed the player himself had indicated in an earlier interview that he was born in 1990.However the birthday discrepancies do not seem to bother Newcastle as they press ahead with the signing of the player they regard as the best defender in the Belgian Jupiler League last season.– Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmith.

Angels’ comeback comes up short in nightcap loss to Rangers

first_img“It definitely wasn’t easy,” Goodwin said after playing all 20 innings in the field in upper 90s temperatures. “We did the best we could to stay hydrated. The training staff did a good job all day of keeping us in good shape and being able to go out there and give it our all. … It’s just a tough day. They had to do the same thing. I don’t think it was easy for anybody.”The starting pitchers in the night game, who had likely spent the entire afternoon inside while their teammates battled through the day game, were in control for most of the time.Jaime Barría and Rangers left-hander Brock Burke, who was making his major league debut, matched zeroes for the first four innings. Barria did not allow a run until the fifth, when he gave up a homer to Solak and then an RBI single to Danny Santana.Barría was outdueled by Burke, who shut out the Angels over six innings. Burke, a former third-round pick, threw fastballs averaging 92 mph with 75 of his 99 pitches.“He’s got good stuff,” Angels manager Brad Ausmus said. “Tough angle for the hitters in terms of picking up the ball.

It was the latest contribution from a player picked up just before Opening Day, when Upton got hurt.“He’s been tremendous,” Ausmus said. “No one knew him, hadn’t spent spring training with him. He got a lot of playing time initially because Upton was out and he performed extremely well and now he’s in a role where he’s not playing quite as much and continues to perform well.
