Wellington girls rise to No. 10 in the Topeka Capital Journal “Super 10” poll

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — It seems each week the Wellington girls basketball team, which hosts Winfield Tuesday, gets even more accolades.The undefeated Crusaders approached another milestone this week. Wellington is currently in the “Girls Super 10” in the Topeka Capital Journal. That’s a poll that lists all the girls teams in all classes.The super rankings are as follows:1. Wichita South (1) 14-0.2. Olathe South (3) 13-0.3. Miege (3) 13-1.4. Shawnee Mission- Northwest (4) 12-1.5. Aquinas (6) 11-3.6. Olathe East (7) 12-2.7. Derby (8) 14-1.8. Shawnee Heights (10) 12-2.9. Salina Central (9) 12-2.10. Wellington (NR) 14-0.See full Topeka Capital Journal poll here.It is safe to say a Wellington basketball team has never achieved this honor. Now whether or not the Crusader football teams reached this status during their glory years in the early 2000s is unknown to this writer.As far as the Class 4A Div. 1 poll, Wellington is still No. 2. behind Bishop Miege – a private school in the Kansas City area.McPherson has fallen to No. 3 with a 12-2 record while K.C. Piper (13-1) is No. 4 and Paola (12-2) is No. 5.In the Kansas Basketball Coaches Association poll for Feb. 8, Wellington remains No. 2 for the second consecutive week. Bishop Miege is No. 1. Circle is No. 9. See this poll here:In the Kansas Power Index 4A rankings, Wellington is No. 3 behind Paola and Miege. The Crusaders were No. 1 in that poll three weeks ago.

Publix Announces Policy Requiring Face Coverings Inside All Stores

first_imgFlorida’s largest supermarket chain has a new policy as of next week, in the effort to fight the spread of the coronavirus.Beginning July 21, Publix will require all customers to wear a mask or some type of face covering while inside any of its stores.The Lakeland-based company posted the information on its website Thursday.Publix cited CDC guidelines for the change, and emphasized that face coverings must be worn over both the nose and mouth. The grocer has implemented other measures to help shoppers abide by social distancing, such as one-way aisles and marking off six-foot increments at the checkout aisles.Other businesses that already require face coverings include Target, Walmart and CVS.The CDC states on its website that “a cloth face covering may not protect the wearer, but it may keep the wearer from spreading the virus to others.”last_img read more

England’s Gabriella wins British Open place

first_img England international Gabriella Cowley played her way into the Ricoh Women’s British Open, which starts on Thursday over the Old Course, St Andrews, after shooting four-under 68 at yesterday’s final qualifying. The 17-year-old from Brocket Hall (Image © Leaderboard Photography) was one of only two amateurs to make it through the final stage at Kingsbarns Golf Links, alongside Curtis Cup player Amy Boulden of Wales.   Meanwhile England’s Emily Taylor – a rookie professional on the Ladies European Tour – also qualified with a sparkling 66, which put her in second place. A total of 16 players qualified for the championship from a field of 90. Another England international, Lauren Taylor (Woburn), is keeping her fingers crossed for a place in the Open. She is the first reserve after taking part in a play-off, involving 12 competitors, for the final four places in the championship. All 12 players – also including England’s Bronte Law (Bramhall) and Hayley Davis (Ferndown) – had shot three-under 69 in regulation play. Gabriella will join two other England amateurs when she tees off in the championship.  British champion Georgia Hall (Remedy Oak) and British stroke play champion Sarah-Jane Boyd (Truro) were both exempt from qualifying.

COMEBACKING AMBITIOUS BREW UPSETS FAVORED FOREST CHATTER & WINS $100,000 LENNYFROMALIBU STAKES BY 2 ¼ LENGTHS UNDER PRAT; ZIEBARTH HOMEBRED BY TIZBUD, TRAINED BY JONES, GETS 6 ½ FURLONGS DOWN HILLSIDE TURF IN 1:13.78

first_imgRACE IS ONE OF FIVE CALIFORNIA GOLD RUSH DAY STAKES FOR CAL-BRED OR SIRED RUNNERS ARCADIA, Calif. (May 28, 2016)–With Flavien Prat orchestrating a pedestrian opening quarter mile in 22.88, Pamela Ziebarth’s comebacking homebred Ambitious Brew marched to an impressive 2 ¼ length victory in Saturday’s $100,000 Lennyfromalibu Stakes. Trained by Marty Jones, Ambitious Brew, who had been idle since Oct. 12, covered 6 ½ furlongs down Santa Anita’s hillside turf course in 1:13.78.“We ended up getting a great trip,” said Jones. “You could tell after the first quarter mile that he was in the right spot and he was gonna be tough to beat. I keep feeling like I should’ve gotten more out of this horse, he’s a really good horse. Hopefully, we can finish off the year with something big with him.”The 2-1 second choice in a field of five older horses bred or sired in California, Ambitious Brew paid $6.40, $2.80 and $2.20.A 6-year-old gelding by Ziebarth’s Tizbud, Ambitious Brew is out of her Forest Wildcat mare, Kathwen. Today’s win marked his third stakes victory and he improved his overall mark to 16-6-6-0. With the winner’s share of $60,000, he increased his earnings to $398,380.“Marty just asked me not to rush him,” said Prat, who was aboard for the first time. “He broke so well and I had an easy lead. I was surprised to be on the lead that easily with him, but after that, when I asked him after crossing the dirt, he just took off.”Although he appeared full of run crossing the dirt at the top of the lane, Forest Chatter, who may well have been compromised by the slow early pace, never threatened the winner and had to settle for second, 1 ½ lengths in front of Old Man Lake.Ridden by Mike Smith, Forest Chatter was off at 3-5 and paid $2.20 and $2.10.The longest shot in the field at 25-1 with Tyler Baze, Old Man Lake completed the trifecta and paid $3.60 to show.Fractions on the race were 22.88, 45.82 and 1:07.90.The Lennyfromalibu was the first of five California-bred or sired stakes on an 11-race card at Santa Anita.last_img read more

Anti-doping group moves to close loophole with lab in Kenya

first_imgBlood doping is especially relevant in distance running, where Kenya has been a powerhouse for decades.The new lab should stop athletes who train in remote regions in the high-altitude west of the country from being given prior warning of out-of-competition tests by sample collectors.Out-of-competition checks are meant to be sprung on athletes by surprise.But the time required to reach athletes and get samples to Nairobi — and out of the country to an approved testing lab within the 36-hour limit — had meant it became easier for officials to give a group notice a day before to gather at a specific place to be tested together.Experts say, though, that drug cheats could use the advance notice to dilute their blood — either by drinking copious amounts of fluid or by infusing saline — and beat the test.ADVERTISEMENT Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? It is the first World Anti-Doping Agency-approved facility in East Africa, and the only one in Africa after South Africa’s lab had its accreditation revoked last year.The AIU is the independent unit set up in 2017 to prosecute doping cases in international track and field. It funded the Kenyan laboratory with help from athletics governing body, the IAAF.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Previously, blood samples taken from Kenya’s world-beating distance runners had to be flown to South Africa or, more recently, Europe to be tested at an approved lab within 36 hours — a challenging race against time that led to the regular bending of anti-doping rules, as revealed by The Associated Press in 2016.Top distance runners from North America and Europe have also used the high-altitude regions in Kenya and East African neighbor Ethiopia for training bases. Peza offers relief to ecozone firms The lab belongs to the Lancet healthcare group. It’s not a fully accredited WADA lab, but the world anti-doping organization allows a facility to handle tests for cost and geographic reasons as long as it meets criteria.Kenya’s reputation has been seriously damaged by the upsurge in doping cases in recent years, which has been accompanied by multiple incidents of rule-breaking and corruption.Kiprop revealed in May he received prior warning of his urine test. He also admitted to giving the doping control officer money for tipping him off.Kiprop also faces a potential four-year ban. He was elevated to the gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics after Rashid Ramzi was stripped for doping.Other Kenyans currently charged with doping include former 10,000-meter Commonwealth champion Lucy Wangui (morphine) and 2017 Athens Marathon winner Samuel Kalalei (EPO).Ruth Jebet, the Kenya-born 3,000-meter steeplechase prodigy who won gold at the 2016 Olympics aged 19, was also suspended this year and charged with using EPO.Jebet, who runs for Bahrain, won the Asian senior title at 16 and broke the world record at 19.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

The 800 meters world championships bronze medalist Bett has tested positive for the blood-booster EPO having already been suspended and charged with evading a doping test. He faces a four-year ban. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip, File)Kenya’s first WADA-approved drug-testing laboratory will be operational early next month, anti-doping authorities said Monday as they aim to close a loophole that some fear had allowed athletes from the East African distance-running powerhouse to beat controls for years.The lab in the capital, Nairobi, will focus on blood analyses, although it will also be able to carry out other doping tests, the Athletics Integrity Unit said.ADVERTISEMENT Gov’t in no rush to rescue animals in Taal ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins Brett Clothier, head of the AIU, alluded to that on Monday.“From now on, the analyses of blood samples will be performed locally,” he said. “This will give us more efficiency, more responsiveness and less predictability.”Athletics Kenya president Jackson Tuwei said: “It means everything will be easier.”The lab should address similar problems for Ethiopia, which has signs of a doping problem.The AIU’s announcement on the Kenyan lab came a day after it confirmed 2017 world championship bronze medalist Kipyegon Bett of Kenya had failed a doping test.Bett tested positive for the blood-booster EPO and the 800-meter runner, world junior champion in 2016, faces a four-year ban.The 20-year-old athlete had already been suspended for evading a doping test. He is the fourth Kenyan to face doping charges in 2018.Former 1,500-meter Olympic winner and three-time world champion Asbel Kiprop has been charged with using EPO, while women’s Olympic marathon winner Jemima Sumgong was banned for four years for EPO last November.They are some of the latest cases casting doubt on Kenyan claims that its top athletes are clean and that doping is confined to lesser-known runners.The AIU said it collected more than 3,500 blood samples from across the world in 2017. It expects the new lab to handle between 800 and 1,000 a year from the East African region, including Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania and Eritrea.last_img read more

Mahrez back in better shape at Leicester – Puel

first_img0Shares0000Mahrez returned from his self-imposed exile as a substitute at Manchester City © AFP/File / Oli SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 14 – Leicester City boss Claude Puel believes Riyad Mahrez is in “better” shape than before his self-imposed Foxes exile.The Algerian looks set to return to Puel’s starting line-up for Friday’s fifth-round FA Cup tie against Sheffield United after a three-game absence. Mahrez missed training for 10 days following Leicester’s refusal to entertain a bid from runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City before last month’s transfer deadline.However, he made his Leicester comeback as a second-half substitute against prospective employers City last weekend just a day after returning to training as Puel’s men were thrashed 5-1.“I think better,” said Puel when asked if Mahrez is still in the form that has seen him score nine goals and provide nine assists this season.“He enjoys to play and train with his team-mates and he is at a good level with no problem.“He has come back with a smile. The story is behind him, all the players want to move on.”Leicester are one of few Premier League sides without a relegation battle or fight for Champions League places on their hands, allowing Puel to concentrate on a bid for Cup glory.And the Frenchman is hoping the best of Leicester’s season is still to come with the Mahrez saga put to bed.“It is important to put an end to the talking about Riyad, he came back to the game at Manchester City,” he added.“We need to move on, for him he needs to kick on, like the team. The most important thing is in front of us.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
