ELLSWORTH — The University of Maine on Friday announced a four-year extension for Athletic Director Karlton Creech.Creech came to the University of Maine from his post as senior associate athletic director at the University of North Carolina in February 2014. His contract with the university was set to expire in February prior to the deal.“Karlton’s outstanding leadership of UMaine Athletics has benefited the university, the state and Black Bear fans near and far,” University of Maine President Susan J. Hunter said. “He is a thought leader, teacher and mentor with a vision for Maine’s only Division I athletic program.”Last January, Creech conducted the hiring of Joe Harasymiak, the youngest head football coach in Division I.

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) – Five-time reigning champions, Guyana Jaguars, have created space between themselves and the chasing Jamaica Scorpions, following their handsome victory in the sixth round of matches in the Regional Four-Day Championship, which wrapped up last weekend.Jaguars disposed of the Scorpions by seven runs inside three days at the Trelawny Multi-Purpose Stadium in Jamaica, to exact revenge for their earlier fourth round defeat at home in Georgetown.The victory pushed them to 79 points in second, now almost 19 points clear of Scorpions in third on 61.2 points.Scorpions started the round only 3.4 points behind Jaguars following two wins on the trot, and knowing that a victory would have seen them assume second spot.However, the hosts batted poorly in the match, especially in the second innings when they bowled out for 111, after slumping from 75 without loss to lose their last 10 wickets for 36 runs.Leaders Barbados Pride, meanwhile, further strengthened their chances of clinching their maiden first class title in the professional era by extending their lead over Jaguars, following their crushing 127-run victory over Windward Islands Volcanoes at Kensington Oval.Pride sit on top the six-team standings on 108.2 points.Despite disappointing results, Volcanoes and Trinidad and Tobago Red Force remain hot on the heels of Scorpions.Volcanoes are less than five points behind Scorpions on 56.8 while Red Force, who drew with bottom-placed Leeward Islands Hurricanes in Basseterre, are fifth on 54.8.Hurricanes, already with four defeats this season, are meandering on 40.4 points.
Ahead of a possible clash against eternal rival and fellow Anglo-phone brothers, Ghana, the Super Eagles took time off from their regular evening training to visit the Suez Centre to watch the final Group F match between Black Stars and Guinea Bissau. However, it turned out a miscalculation as they have now been paired with cup holders Cameroon in the Round of 16.The team normally train twice a day but yesterday, they had the option of either to allow the players go on leisure walk at the beach side or stay indoor.But camp sources told THISDAY that most of the players opted to go for the Ghana match in Suez so that they don’t need to wait for the technical department for match strategy but wants to be seen to be on top of what is expected of them. “They are determined to get a good result against anybody this weekend and to show this seriousness was the reason behind the need to watch the match,” a top official in the camp disclosed last night.Alexandria that has housed Super Eagles since the beginning of the tournament last week is about 370 kilometres to Suez and by road will last something like fours hours.Meanwhile, Eagles team medics may have ruled out team’s captain, John Mikel Obi from the crucial match on Saturday.Mikel, according to Eagles’ Media Officer, Toyin Ibitoye, sustained a hamstring injury during the match against Madagascar and may not be available for the next match.A visit to the team’s Helman Palestine HotelsThe newly signed Trabzonpor FC of Turkey star was noticed to be walking with a limp at the team’s Helman Palestine Hotels yesterday.“He was injured in the last group match against Madagascar which led to his being substituted.The initial test revealed its not something very serious but at closer examination, it was discovered that he will need to rest and it would be miraculous if he would be available for the next match,” the team’s Media Officer explained.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
The men’s volleyball team split a home-and-away series to No. 15 Cal Baptist University after falling at the Galen Center Saturday night in five games (25-20, 20-25, 19-25, 25-17, 12-15).The match was the second of the pivotal series this week that could decide the postseason fate of both teams, but with the loss, the Trojans (4-14, 4-12 MPSF) dropped further behind Hawai’i for the eighth and final spot in the MPSF tournament.The Trojans initially built off their momentum from Thursday night’s road sweep. They started the first game on a 7-3 run and never looked back, hitting .370 and adding 2.5 blocks.“We caught them off-guard with a different lineup,” head coach Jeff Nygaard said.Namely, USC had a younger lineup headlined by freshman outside hitter Woody Cook, who ended the match with 14 kills and a .370 hitting percentage.“If you told me we were going to lose with an outside hitting .370, I wouldn’t have believed you,” Nygaard said.Nevertheless, that was the case as the Trojans offense sputtered in games two and three. The second game had a different feel as the Trojans hitting regressed to .103. Errors crippled the offense. Cal Baptist’s hitting was ice cold at times, too, and the game was tied 19-19 after an emphatic solo block from junior outside hitter Lucas Yoder. The Trojans scored only one more point, however, before the Lancers heated up to win game two on a 5-0 run.Cal Baptist (9-12, 4-12 MPSF) distributed attacking between five starters, with star senior outside hitter Rocky DeLyon struggling. Junior middle blocker Jackson Burge carried his team through offensive lulls at time by maintaining an errorless .462 through the first three games. His effort helped the Lancers outhit the Trojans by .183 points in game two and .86 in game three. Even as both teams’ hitting was hot and cold, there was no shortage of blocking. The Lancers tallied 10 through three games, including three solo blocks from junior middle blocker Kevin Vaz. USC added 7.5, already approaching their season average of eight per match.The blocking kept USC off-balance in game three. The Trojans led 11-9 before allowing a 11-2 run. Nygaard made a couple of subs during that stretch, exchanging sophomore Jon Rivera for freshman Ryan Moss, senior Alex Slaught for Yoder and third senior Tommy Leonard for senior Josh Kirchner. USC went on a 3-1 run with the new lineup but still lost the game by six points.“Even though we started off really good against them, they made adjustments that took us out of our comfort zone,” Nygaard said. “When we did respond, we responded with fury in game four and played a great game.”Facing a loss that could effectively kill their chance for a MPSF tournament bid, the Trojans’ dominated game four which started with an ace that sparked a 14-4 USC run. Nygaard’s subs paid off as the three of them combined for eight kills and zero errors during that opening run. After that, USC coasted to a 25-17 win.For the fifth time this season, USC saw a fifth game at the Galen Center. The Trojans split the first four 2-2 but could not finish it off.Cal Baptist led 8-7 when the teams switched sides. The Lancers were hitting .875 in the game, but the Trojans’ errorless .500 was not too shabby either. Tied at ten apiece, Cal Baptist went on a 2-0 mini run capped with a powerful Enrique de Diego Garcia and Roy Powell block that forced Nygaard to call a timeout. Out of the timeout, USC scored a couple more points before falling 15-12.“In game five, we made just one or two errors and they played flawlessly,” Nygaard said. “It’s tough when you allow a team to get to five and they play a perfect game. There’s not much you can do.”Still, according to Slaught, this was a game the Trojans should have won.“That’s a team we expect to beat, and we believe this [loss] is on us,” Slaught said. “We just didn’t execute on our side of the net.”This loss might spell the end of the Trojans’ postseason hopes, pending improbable turnaround.USC next plays Concordia on March 16 at the Galen Center.
Coach Anthony Foley makes a total of five changes to his previous starting XV for the trip to the Arms Park.Ronan O’Mahony returns on the wing with James Cronin and Mike Sherry coming into the front-row with Foley named in the second-row and Robin Copeland at number eight. Munster, who have two wins and two loses in their last four PRO12 matches, are chasing a win to keep up the pace in the race for the semi-finals.
His response opens up like this:”It’s just really the ultimate of the baseball world as far as we’re concerned. I said to my wife this morning, this kid was 7 years old. I’ve seen him pitch. He’s got a little something on his fastball. And through the years, but, through Little League and just … baseball. It’s just overwhelming experience for us.”He started to make a little more sense after that, saying how the Yankees have stuck with him since drafting him in 2014. But he instantly became a star for Yankees fans watching the game.Joe Harvey’s dad >>>>>>>>>— Bronx Pinstripes (@BronxPinstripes) April 11, 2019OKAY JOE HARVEY’S DAD CHEERING HIM ON IS ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE pic.twitter.com/nMYiNyq5XS— Audra (@audruhhhh) April 11, 2019As for Harvey the pitcher, he had a pretty solid debut. He faced six batters and struck out three while allowing just one hit, one walk and no runs. Maybe if Harvey continues to pitch like this we can get more live interviews with his dad. Joe Harvey made his MLB debut Wednesday night for the Yankees, and thankfully the YES Network was there to interview his dad.Reporter Meredith Marakovits sat in the stands with Harvey’s mom, dad and fiancée to get a sense of what they were going through as Harvey pitched. She asked a simple question to Harvey’s father: “Can you just take me through what it’s like to watch your son in his major league debut?” That’s when papa Harvey stole the show.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZNFirst of all, major props to Marakovits, who managed to not burst out laughing while Harvey stumbled through all of his responses. Second, this thing went off the rails At no point did the dad manage a single coherent sentence. He was basically a living embodiment of Michael Scott’s famous sentence quote: “Sometimes I’ll start a sentence, and I don’t even know where it’s going. I just hope I find it along the way.”
Kucherov is the first Russian-born player to win the Hart since Alex Ovechkin in 2013 and the second Lightning player ever to win it (Martin St. Louis, 2004).”I’d like to thank my teammates, coaches, our trainers as well as our ownership and the Tampa Bay Lightning organization for everything you do for us, for supporting us,” Kucherov said. “A big part of this award goes to you guys.” Related News Nikita Kucherov dominated the NHL Awards on Wednesday.The Lightning winger, who led the NHL with 128 points on the season, won the Hart Memorial Trophy as the league’s most outstanding player Wednesday, beating out Penguins center Sidney Crosby and Oilers center Connor McDavid. NHL awards 2019: Full list of nominees, winners for Hart, Vezina, Norris and more He dominated the voting, collecting 164 of 171 first-place votes to finish with 1,677 points.Crosby finished second with 739 points (three first) and McDavid was third with 465 (one first).But that wasn’t all the winning Kucherov did. The 2011 second-round pick also won the Art Ross Trophy for leading the NHL in scoring and the Ted Lindsay Award for most outstanding player, as voted by the players.It was a fitting end to Kucherov’s season as he was the best player on the ice from start to finish. He had 38 multi-point games for Tampa Bay, which is the most in the NHL since the 2006-07 season (Crosby, 38).He was just the fourth player to eclipse 120 points since 2005-06 and his 128 points were the most in a single season since Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr scored more in 1995-96.
