Bestseller DEAL OF THE DAY Other Displayed poorly Displayed poorly $0.00 A Warrior’s Heart Not relevant By Steve GunnLocalSportsJournal.comPENTWATER – Pentwater is a very small town with a very small school.So it’s not surprising that the school has a very small volleyball team, at least from a numbers perspective.The Falcons only had eight players on their varsity roster in the regular season, and only added one junior varsity player for the state tournament.Pentwater’s Taylor Wilkinson stands with Coach Kerry Newberg after attaining 1,000 career kills.Considering volleyball teams have six players on the court at one time, the Falcons don’t have a lot of depth, or even enough players for a full team scrimmage.But Coach Kerry Newberg kind of likes it that way.“At practice I have to play a lot,” Newberg said. “I ask some of my friends who still play to scrimmage against the girls. You do what you have to do.“I’m so used to (the small roster) that if I have the JV and varsity practicing together, I feel like it’s too much.“I don’t have girls sitting on the sidelines during practice. They are always touching the ball, which is a good thing.”Obviously the practice plan is working, because Pentwater has had solid success in volleyball for the past five years.Last week the Falcons beat Walkerville in three straight sets to capture their fifth consecutive Class D district championship.They have won at least a share of the West Michigan D League title for four straight years, and have been outright champions for the past three.They are currently 37-7-1, and will try to keep their outstanding season alive when they meet Mount Pleasant Sacred Heart on Tuesday in the Class D regional semifinals at 5:30 p.m. at Pinconning High School.The winner will advance to Thursday’s regional finals against the winner of the Muskegon Catholic-Fife Lake semifinal.Pentwater Falcons in action during their district title run.Sacred Heart been a major stumbling block for Pentwater, eliminating the Falcons from regionals four years in a row.Last year the Falcons came close, pushing Sacred Heart to a fifth-set tie-breaker before bowing out.“We haven’t been able to get past them,” Newberg said. “Last year it went five sets and three and a half hours. It could have gone either way. Hopefully this year the pendulum swings our way.”Having a great volleyball team is not an old tradition at Pentwater. When Newberg took over the program five years ago, winning was not something that happened a lot.The Falcons showed signs of life in her first season, finishing third in their conference and winning a district championship. They tied for the conference championship the next year, and have won it outright every year since then.They haven’t lost a conference match in the past two years, and have a 35-match conference winning streak.2017 Pentwater volleyball team. Photo/Dayna Lamb-Hasil“They were last or second to last in the conference when I took over,” said Newberg, a former standout at Ludington High School and Muskegon Community College.“I took over when the season had already started. Something happened with the previous coach, and they had three wins the previous year, so when I came in they just asked me to see what I could do.“But when I showed up at practice, I could see right away that they were good athletes, and I didn’t understand why they weren’t winning. We just started by implementing a simple offense and defense, found some success, and we’ve just been building on that.”On paper, the Falcons didn’t seem like candidates to have such a great season this fall.They lost standout hitter Linnea McDonough to graduation last spring, and their roster includes only three seniors, along with two juniors, two sophomores and two freshmen.But the young squad pulled together and beat just about every opponent that came its way this season. And Newberg thinks this year’s team has a chance to get farther in the state tournament than any of its predecessors.“I thought a few times in the past, this is the team to do it, but the younger players weren’t quite ready,” she said. “This group of younger players have the mindset of older players.“We have great chemistry, and a lot of aggressive girls who are willing to do whatever it takes.”The Falcons are led by senior outside hitter Taylor Wilkinson, who passed the career 1,000-kill mark this season, and will probably pass McDonough during regionals to become the school’s all-time kills leader.This year she has 506 kills, 83 assists and 64 service aces. Defensively she has 512 digs and 45 solo blocksSenior setter Allison McGregor has 948 assists along with 25 kills, 145 service aces, and 340 digs on defense.Junior middle/outside hitter Julia Hall has 208 kills, 48 assists, 127 aces, 648 digs and 53 solo blocks.Sophomore libero Terra Cluchey has 112 kills, 36 assists, 178 aces and 736 digs.

first_imgThe basic idea behind fat loss is simple: eat better, exercise more. However, hidden in this formula are numerous caveats and footnotes. No wonder there are so many books and television specials about the 100 different ways people are supposed to exercise and eat right.According to Becca Hurt, MS, RD, and program manager of Life Time Weight Loss at Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life Company, “one of the most confusing parts of dieting is the fact that many of the foods people think will help them lose weight actually pack on the pounds.” Hurt notes there are enemies lurking in common foods that almost everyone eats or drinks. So, what’s to be done? To help identify some of the most common weight-loss enemies, Hurt has provided a list of seven culprits everyone will want to weed out of their diet.Coffee shop drinksNever mind the french fries and potato chips, Hurt says that liquid calories are more often one of the biggest downfalls when it comes to losing weight. For many, it starts with their morning coffee. While 1-2 cups of coffee with only cream added is no harm, the danger is in the sugar loaded, caramel-chocolate dieting disasters many people believe to be perfectly healthy because they ordered the non-fat options.Skim milk“Only recently, Americans started to realize fat isn’t always the bad guy,” explains Hurt. “There is no difference in fat loss between diets with no-fat and full-fat dairy consumption.” In fact, Hurt notes that people often add sugar to enhance the taste of their skim milk, which quickly turns it into a decidedly unhealthy option.PastaYes, even whole grain pasta is stripped of beneficial nutrients, bleached and loaded with preservatives to make it more shelf-stable. Pasta portions can also be confusing. “A pasta meal should begin with a big salad, and the high protein meatballs should be larger than the portion of pasta,” says Hurt. “Instead of spaghetti and meatballs, it should be meatballs with some spaghetti on the side.”Reduced fat snacks For many, reduced fat, no fat and low fat labels on foods can be a green light to what they believe is guilt free snacking. The principle to remember here is not all calories are the same. “A 100-calorie pudding pack is not as healthy as 100-calories worth of almonds,” explains Hurt. “Food that is naturally healthy doesn’t have to have the “no-fat” label.” A handful of nuts, a few slices of full-fat cheese or some Greek yogurt are healthier options by far.Energy drinksFor those looking to shed some fat, drinking one of these sugar-loaded bad-boys means putting the brakes on their body’s fat burning process. Hurt adds that people should get no more than 5 percent of their calories from sugar and just one energy drink will put someone well over this limit.SandwichesWhile many think ordering a sandwich is a diet-friendly alternative to a burger, consider this: one sandwich has as many carbohydrates as a Kit-Kat bar! “Carbs are not a sustainable source of energy,” says Hurt, “and are responsible for that sluggish, hungry feeling that leads many to skip workouts and snack more.” The solution: ditch the bread and add a salad!Protein barsThey might be marketed as the fat burning, muscle gaining snack, but don’t be fooled. Heavily processed protein bars are loaded with sugars and carbohydrates. To get the necessary protein, Hurt suggests looking to nuts or animal sources such as meats or yogurt instead.Brandpointcontent.comlast_img read more

first_imgKeemo Paul, following his heroics with the bat to guide the Guyana Amazon Warriors to a match-winning total over the St Lucia Zouks on Thursday evening, said he is quite focused on evolving into the kind of player who can craft more enterprising moments with both ball and bat throughout CPL 2019.  Paul during Warriors’ innings, strolled to the crease, with his side in a precarious positon with the score on 85-5. He then carved out an innings of 38 from 22 balls inclusive of three fours and the same number of sixes to see Warriors to 155-9. Zouks in the end, fell short by 13 runs. “It was good to contribute to the team in the first game,” he said of his match-winning knock which happens to be his highest T20 score. “Coming from the West Indies team, I’ve been preparing for the white-ball cricket,” he added during a post-match press briefing.   Paul who is no slouch with the bat, a fact that is known to those who followed his age-group career, has seen his exploits with the ball grabbing most of the attention. However, he explained that he is certainly keen to fall into the mould of genuine all-rounders at the highest level by producing the numbers with the willow in hand.  “During the Test [series against India] Griff [Rayon Griffith] has been working with me on my batting and like, I said, I just want to contribute to the team. I’ve been working on getting a stable base to hit through the line of the ball and it looks to be working for me.” Paul will get another opportunity to extend his impressive start to the tournament with the bat when Warriors take on St Kitts and Nevis Patriots this evening from 8 Pm.last_img read more

first_img(Author note: This is Chapter 2 of future book “The Peter Principles” that I was working to finish in March 2014 when my wife was diagnosed with leukemia. I have released the first three chapters of the book, which chronicles the history of Peter G. Angelos and his ownership of the Baltimore Orioles. I think you’ll find much of this already-reported information to be illuminating.)Chapter 1 is available here.Chapter 3 is available here.Chapter 12 is available here. 2. A Tyrant Is Born “Our fan support is beyond words. If we had enough seats, we’d surpass every other club. Our expenditures were long overdue in light of the fan support and rather meager compared to the expenditures of other clubs over the years. We felt we had some catching up to do, that the previous ownership had not done all it could to repay the fans, to give them what they deserve. We’re going to operate major league baseball in Maryland in a different way. We’re committed to making the club as competitive as possible, and that’s what we’re doing.”—  Peter G. Angelos, as told to Ross Newhan of The Los Angeles Times, March 27, 1994center_img IN THE SPRING OF 1994, on the eve of a work stoppage that would cancel the World Series for the first time in the history of Major League Baseball, a book was published that became a handbook for anyone who wanted to see behind the greasy curtains of the business of baseball. This “tell all” for those who could think beyond what was on the back of a bubble gum card wasn’t penned by legendary Major League Baseball Players’ Association head Marvin Miller, but it certainly came from the somewhat sympathetic perspective of the plight of the players vs. the owners in the annals of the sport’s history in America.The only problem with any “bias” in it was rooted, much like this Peter Principles series, in nothing but facts. Cold hard facts – all well sourced – that reflect the reality of the business of baseball. It told of the institution of institutionalized racism, classism, elitism, intimidation, coercion and lies amongst a world of wealthy all-white males doing business with an anti-trust exemption in the 21st century.The 1994 book is called Lords Of The Realm and if you take no other advice from this manifesto about the Baltimore Orioles history under Peter Angelos, pick it up and give it a read. It’s impossible to sum up 75 years of baseball history in a few sentences here but to discuss the history and business of Major League Baseball over the last century would require a bar of soap, some disinfectant, warm water and a towel. Drugs, scandals, cheats, louses, greedy and/or crazy owners, racism, violence, civic shakedowns, and lack of government oversight have plagued baseball through the years. But the marketing machines insist on red, white and blue, the American flag, “God Bless America,” hot dogs and virtuous intentions for your children to idolize from crib to grave. Go watch the Ken Burns PBS series, Baseball, and you’ll see that there’s nothing more important in the universe than the sanctity of baseball history, records, heroes and civic connection to Americana.According to some people, anyway.Baseball owners have tried to control their public message for a hundred years and then journalists have come forward to expose all of the dirty laundry of the sport over the century.By any measure of history, Peter G. Angelos fits right into the old boys club of Major League Baseball owners. Now, more than 20 years into his residency, it’s easy to measure his role in the pantheon of tyrannical, egotistical and iconoclastic baseball owners right up against George Steinbrenner, Charlie Finley, Bill Veeck, Auggie Busch or any of the other “Lords” as John Helyar put it in his book 20 years ago this month.Peter Angelos bought the best and most valuable franchise in Major League Baseball in August 1993. It was the most expensive franchise in North America. Previous Orioles owner Eli Jacobs had hosted the Queen of England and the President of The United States in his shoddy, mezzanine hut on 33rd Street at Memorial Stadium and he had only controlled the team for less than four years. Owning a Major League Baseball allowed him the opportunity to sit with not only the rich but also the famous, infamous and influential. Angelos was a blue-collar attorney from East Baltimore who hit the legal lottery with an asbestos case that made him wealthy almost overnight. So, if his background portended a man who wanted to not only be rich but also desired to be famous and highly influential in the political space, then Angelos got his eternal wish with the purchase of the Baltimore Orioles.In 1993, no one had ever heard of Peter Angelos outside of East Baltimore. By early 1994, he made sure that everyone who had ever heard of the Baltimore Orioles had heard his name and saw his image.It started the day that he bought the team and returned to Baltimore a reigning hero and clearly in charge of the new Orioles ownership group. There were more questions than answers that day with so many prominent names involved and such civic interest in every facet of Angelos’ intentions. Angelos only won one election but this was akin to him giving a victory speech and outlining his platform for the future of the pride and joy of Baltimore – its baseball team.“I’ll have ultimate authority in all matters, from the smallest things to the major things,” said Angelos, who said his title would be managing partner of the Orioles. “But I don’t brandish that as some kind of club, and I would hope it would never have to be used. I don’t think it will be.”On August 4, 1993, The Sun reported this:The baseball side of the Orioles isn’t likely to change dramatically with Mr. Angelos in charge. He said he generally supports the team’s current plan of grooming young players, rather than resorting to signing more expensive free-agent players. And he said that his goal as owner would be to give the fans a competitive team that occasionally brings home the biggest prize.Winning a World Series “should be the goal for every team,” he said. “But that is not the solelast_img read more
