Distance runners overshadow jumpers and sprinters

first_imgThe number of Syracuse’s jumpers and sprinters can be counted on two hands and it’s a concerted effort by the coaching staff. The Orange is known for its distance team, and head coach Chris Fox has created that dynamic.“We don’t even look at throwers or pole vaulters,” Fox said.Even coming off a national championship in cross country and an Atlantic Coast Conference indoor title, where three of his hurdlers finished in the top four, Fox’s jumpers and sprinters are still overlooked. He focuses on recruiting distance runners while SU assistant coach Dave Hegland recruits hurdlers. Distance runners and hurdlers like Justyn Knight, Freddie Crittenden and Colin Bennie have become household names among the nationwide track and field community, casting a shadow over the rest of the roster.With just four sprinters on the team, Winston Lee, a junior sprinter who finished fifth at the ACC indoor championship in the 60-meter dash, tries to manage the hand dealt to him. He has clocked the best times among the sprinters on the team and knows that he can’t slip up if he wants to get the attention he hopes for.“I think it does bring added pressure,” Lee said of having so few sprinters, “and it is important for me to keep improving so that I don’t fly under the radar.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIf there were more on the team, Lee said he would be a better sprinter. But he also knows there’s nothing he can do about it.Jabari Butler, the top high jumper for SU, had a similar outlook as Lee. The senior believes that adding more jumpers would be beneficial to him, especially someone better than him because it’d push him to compete to be the best.“As you can see with the hurdlers, Freddie (Crittenden) makes the younger guys better,” Butler said.Young runners like Chevis Armstead, Richard Floyd and David Gilstrap have Crittenden to look to for tips, training advice and competition. Butler did not have that luxury when he came to SU. Frank Taylor and Will Watson, both jumpers, helped him out when he began his high-jump career for the Orange. But Taylor and Watson weren’t high jumpers. Unlike Armstead, Floyd and Gilstrap, Butler was on his own.Part of the reason for the makeup of the roster is because of the team’s facilities, Hegland said. High jumpers, for example, only get to actually jump in meets once a week.Despite competing in different events, Lee and Butler are often training together. Hegland coaches the hurdlers, sprinters and jumpers. At practice the three groups often do the same exact workout.Butler doesn’t need to be high jumping two to three times per week, Hegland said. His training is more effective working with the sprinters and hurdlers rather than individually.The coaching staff must be upfront about the training situation when recruiting, Hegland said.“We have to say that if you are going to come here, you’re primarily going to be training like a sprinter,” Hegland said. “And if you’re not OK with that, then this isn’t the right place to come.”Before coming to Syracuse, Lee knew about SU’s distance program, but didn’t know much about the sprinting department. Butler didn’t even plan on being a high jumper for the Orange.Both ended up competing for SU and both have been successful. But both remain in the shadow of the centerpiece of Syracuse’s program.

BCCI and franchises enter panic mode as Vivo reportedly backs out of sponsorship

first_imgAdvertisement 32j6pqNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vspu3Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Ewny4( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 2Would you ever consider trying this?😱a6f0Can your students do this? 🌚uRoller skating! Powered by Firework The IPL governing council’s decision to retain Chinese brand Vivo as their sponsor sparked a huge backlash by political parties as well as the general public. Now with only over a month before the commencement of the tournament, it is being reported that Vivo will make its exit. Advertisement According to a report by the Times Of India, one of the eight IPL franchises apparently called the rest of the teams to inform them that the league sponsors are making the exit.The unnamed franchise which is already waging its separate battle against the BCCI with respect to the lost gate money did not consult the BCCI before mentioning it to the other franchises.Advertisement The decision to back out has been easier for Vivo given the severe backlash against them after the Chinese and Indian troops’ battle across the border. The BCCI, who had acknowledged the protests and taken the feelings of the backlash into consideration had claimed that they take the sentiment of the public in all seriousness and were in the midst of finalizing Vivo’s association with the tournament. The board is “miffed” that a franchise jumped the gun to inform a decision that is yet to be finalized.Advertisement “Was it not the franchise’s duty to consult with BCCI first?” ask those in the know.“Vivo is going to have to exit the league this year and that looks certain now. How that happens is going to depend on how BCCI and Vivo negotiate the matter. The company (Vivo) has had its own share of issues and the BCCI has optics to deal with, given the political climate. They have to come to some understanding here because legal options can’t be considered in this case”.Vivo’s exit will have a huge impact on franchises and the league alikeA formal decision is expected to be announced in the next 24 hours which has put the franchises in a tough spot and are already demanding compensation.With only more than a month remaining, BCCI’s biggest task would be to find a suitable replacement in the pandemic affected market.“Even if the Board can get a replacement at 50% of the value, it’ll be an achievement. Anything more than that will actually be a shot in the arm. Let’s hope things settle amicably. The IPL has been planned and everything’s set,” according to industry stakeholdersVivo had taken over Pepsi Co as the lead sponsor in a deal that involved Rs 2199 crore. The five-year deal saw the league receive Rs 440 crore from the mobile company.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also, follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comRead Also:IPL 2020 set to have COVID replacements and the use of Chinese sponsors Advertisementlast_img read more

New Activity Center Planned for Holmdel Park

first_imgOstrowski noted the park system hopes to have the project ready for bid by November or December 2019. Ostrowski said the existing activity center will be torn down and the new construction will be built on the same site; it is expected to include a program room, a covered outdoor space and new restroom facilities. “Welooked into restoring the home and making all the accessibility upgrades butthe project would have been too costly. It’s more cost-effective to start freshand build something new,” Ostrowski. In 1975, the Monmouth County Park System purchased an 11.68-acre parcel next to Holmdel Park on Longstreet, near the intersection with Crawfords Corner Road. The property included a split-level house, which over the years has hosted numerous grade school classes and youth groups for general natural history lessons and nature interpretation programs. RobinOstrowski, park system principal landscape architect, said a new facility was essentialbecause the house is breaking down with age and has ADA accessibilitycompliance concerns which need to be addressed. Improvementsto ensure a safer link between the activity center and the entrance of the566-acre park and its outdoor recreational opportunities – including thehistoric and operational Longstreet Farm – are also in the works. This article was first published in the May 16-22, 2019 print edition of The Two River Times. Thougha budget is still being crafted to encompass the entire scope of the proposedwork, the Monmouth County Park System Board of Commissioners has recommendedthe acceptance of an $89,900 proposal by the Hamilton-based SpiezleArchitectural Group, Inc. for the preparation of plans and constructiondocuments for the project. “Wehaven’t been able to use the activity center of late for several reasons,mostly because we’ve outgrown it. We really need to build a new one,” Ostrowskisaid. HOLMDEL –A new, modern activity centerfocused on nature appreciation is coming to Holmdel Park. It will replace thebuilding on Longstreet Road that the Monmouth County Park System has been usingfor 30 years.  Asfor the site plan, Ostrowski said it is only conceptual at this point and stillneeds to be presented and reviewed by the Holmdel Township Planning Board. Thesite’s existing Long Street Road entrance and parking area will be maintainedand a vegetative buffer will be installed between the roadway and the site. Accordingto the park system’s request for proposal for architectural and engineeringservices, “the building has outlived its useful life span and is no longersuitable for public use. Utilities need replacing and Americans withDisabilities Act (ADA) access to and within the building is problematic.”last_img read more
