Credit: Anbo Yao | Lantern PhotographerThe No. 7 seed Ohio State women’s soccer team fell to No. 2-seeded Rutgers on Friday afternoon in State College, Pennsylvania, in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament.The Scarlet Knights defeated the Buckeyes 2-0 to end the Scarlet and Gray’s tournament run after they started it off with an upset win over Wisconsin in the quarterfinals. Rutgers got on the board early in the eighth minute when sophomore forward Colby Ciarrocca flicked home a finish from six yards out after a long throw-in by senior defender Brianna Reed.The Buckeyes had a golden chance to answer in the 12th minute, but Rutgers goalkeeper Casey Murphy made a leaping save. The Scarlet Knights scored again in the 39th minute to give them the 2-0 lead heading into halftime. Junior midfielder Jennifer Andresen took advantage of a giveaway just outside the box and finished from 18 yards out. OSU freshman goalkeeper Devon Kerr, who made the start but was pulled after the second goal, inadvertently passed it directly to Andresen, who had an open strike.Heading into halftime, the Scarlet Knights held the advantage in shots, 6-2, including 3-1 on the frame.Entering the second half, Rutgers pressed on, not content with its lead.In the final 20 minutes of play, the Buckeyes continued to push numbers forward but couldn’t find the back of the net.For the game, the Scarlet Knights held the 13-9 advantage in shots, including 5-3 on the frame.Now the Buckeyes have nothing to do but hope their 11-6-3 record is good enough to receive an at-large bid in the NCAA tournament. OSU will learn whether its season will continue for at least one more game or not when the 64-team bracket is revealed at 4:30 p.m. on Monday. read more

Brice Allen honored to be associate head coach of OSU mens track

On Friday, 22 days after being named head coach of Ohio State’s men’s track and field team, Ed Beathea announced his first official hire for his coaching staff. The coach he hired was Brice Allen, who has been selected as the team’s associate head coach and recruiting coordinator. As associate head coach, Allen will lead OSU’s distance runners and serve as the coach for the men’s cross country team. As recruiting coordinator, he will also be responsible for organizing the team’s recruiting efforts. “It’s a privilege to be a member of the athletic department, and most of all to work hand in hand with Coach Beathea,” Allen said. Prior to joining the Buckeyes, Allen’s most recent coaching experience came at the University of Louisville, where he spent seven years. He joined Louisville as assistant coach and recruiting coordinator in 2004, and was promoted to head men’s and women’s cross country coach in 2008, a position he continued to hold through the 2010 season. Prior to his coaching career, Allen had his own experience as a collegiate distance runner, competing in cross country and track at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania. He later worked as an assistant coach at Northern Arizona University prior to joining the Louisville staff. Beathea, whose coaching background is working with sprinters and hurdlers, said it was necessary to hire a coach with experience working with distance runners. “When I was looking for a coach, I think it was understood across the country that what I was looking for was a distance coach to fill the position,” Beathea said. Beathea said the position was not advertised as an associate head coaching position, but he felt Allen deserves that title. “It was advertised as an assistant coach position, but with Brice’s experience and responsibility at Louisville, I thought it appropriate to make him the associate head coach,” Beathea said. Beathea estimated there were between 60 to 90 candidates who applied for the assistant coaching position. Beathea added that he has not yet made any further decisions on who will make up the remainder of his coaching staff. In both of his previous coaching jobs, Allen worked simultaneously with both male and female athletes. He said he is looking forward to the opportunity to focus his attention on coaching only one gender. “I’m anxious to focus on one gender, and I think that’s going to be a completely different dynamic,” Allen said. “I was balancing 20-25 athletes at Louisville with the co-gendered program, and to focus just on the men’s program is certainly going to be a different dynamic.” Allen listed “intensity, a commitment to be competitive and a sense of urgency” as three fundamental traits he says he will bring to OSU. Allen said his expectations, both for the upcoming season and going forward, are in line with Beathea’s. “We want to be a conference contender, a regional power and a national representative year in and year out,” Allen said. Allen also discussed the team’s recruiting strategy for the upcoming season. “We’re going to focus on Ohio, and we’re going to recruit Ohio very hard,” Allen said. “Then we’re going to recruit the peripherary (sic) states and peripherary regions, so we’re going to work from the inside out.” Wanting to get off on the right foot with OSU fans, Allen was cautious about naming any other specific states that the staff would focus their recruiting efforts toward. “I understand that in Ohio, we want to talk about Ohio and Ohio only,” Allen said. “There’s a very good state very close to us, but we’re going to focus on Ohio first.” read more

Atletico Madrid interested in Fabinho other players could leave – Vasilyev

first_imgAS Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has revealed Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Fabinho and he fears that more players could follow in his footsteps in the summerThe defensive midfielder has been strongly linked with moves to both Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain over the past year after having a breakthrough campaign last season.Fabinho has previously admitted that Monaco’s plans to rebuild the squad once more has left him to consider his future and Vasilyev has confirmed they will sell the 24-year-old, but only at the right price.“Yes,” he told SFR Sport.“We owe this kid because he’s been here four years and it’s been promised to him.“But we have to wait for the right offer because we’ll never let a player leave if the offer isn’t satisfactory for Monaco… Atletico is not the only club who have shown an interest.”The 52-year-old fears that there will be more departures at the Stade Louis II in the summer transfer window and admitted that full-back Djibril Sidibe is another who could leave.Neymar, BrazilTop 5 Ligue 1 players to watch throughout next weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Top 5 players to watch in Ligue 1 next…“There is interest in him,” Vasilyev said.“I’ve heard [the Manchester United rumour] talked about. But we don’t have anything concrete on the table.“There are really a good few clubs circling around him. I think in his case, too, we have to wait for the World Cup. I don’t think it’s the time to talk about a transfer before the World Cup.”Another player who is expected to leave is Thomas Lemar, who was close to a summer deadline move to Arsenal last season as a last minute replacement for Alexis Sanchez.“First and foremost, he’s a top player,” said Vasilyev.“I’m convinced that he’ll have a good World Cup. And then we’ll discuss the price.”last_img read more

However, more than 130,000 residents remained banned from city libraries due to their outstanding fees.According to city officials, some 40 percent of residents in some of the city’s low-income communities have been banned due to overdue book and resource fees. City Councilman Chris Cate called the bans unreasonable and contradictory to the intention of libraries as a place to learn.“Libraries are known as the `great equalizers’ because we provide equal access for all patrons, regardless of their socio-economic status,” said Misty Jones, the director of the city’s library system. “Wiping the slate clean of outstanding fines means welcoming back many of the underserved patrons who most need our services.”Jones and Cate are expected to hold a news conference at the North Clairemont Library to reinstate the previously banned residents. The event is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. Updated: 10:17 AM April 9, 2019 00:00 00:00 spaceplay / pause qunload | stop ffullscreenshift + ←→slower / faster ↑↓volume mmute ←→seek  . seek to previous 12… 6 seek to 10%, 20% … 60% XColor SettingsAaAaAaAaTextBackgroundOpacity SettingsTextOpaqueSemi-TransparentBackgroundSemi-TransparentOpaqueTransparentFont SettingsSize||TypeSerif MonospaceSerifSans Serif MonospaceSans SerifCasualCursiveSmallCapsResetSave Settings KUSI Newsroom, Categories: Good Morning San Diego, Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img
