Beforehand, police escorted the wrestlers around the city in celebration of their season. PHOTO BY TAYLOR VORTHERMSBIDDEFORD — The Ellsworth wrestling team has proven itself unstoppable this season after notching both Class B Eastern Maine and state championships, with five wrestlers also claiming individual state titles.But on Saturday, injuries hurt the Eagles at the Maine All-State Qualifier tournament, where the top four wrestlers in their weight classes from each of the three enrollment classes — A, B and C — met to determine Maine’s representatives for the upcoming New England tournament.Ellsworth’s five representatives included four state Class B champions — freshman Peyton Cole at 132 pounds, junior Dagan Berenyi at 145 pounds, junior Connor Petros at 152 pounds and sophomore Trent Goodman at 160 pounds — as well as fourth-place finisher Noah Robidoux, a junior, at 120 pounds.Although Berenyi and Cole both suffered injuries at the tournament, the pair, along with Petros, placed among the top three to move on to the New England tournament.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textBerenyi captured his second consecutive All-State title, but suffered a season-ending injury in his final match of the day. After building an 8-1 lead with a little over a minute left in the championship, Berenyi was taken down by Zac Richard of Massabesic in a way that injured his leg. Ellsworth coaches taped up Berenyi’s leg, and he managed to limp his way to a 9-8 victory. Afterward, Berenyi was taken to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with a broken tibia.It was his second injury of the day. Berenyi also collided with Dominic Cancelarich of Windham in his first match, which resulted in a 3-inch gash on the back of Berenyi’s head and a cut on Cancelarich’s forehead that would later require 12 stitches.Berenyi won that match by technical fall decision of 16-1. He then went on to defeat Otto Keisker of Noble in what Ellsworth coach J.F. Burns described as an “uneventful semifinal” by a tech fall decision of 15-0.Cole also incurred an injury in his first match when his opponent from Noble illegally slammed him onto the mat. Cole suffered a back muscle injury, but he won the match by a score of 11-8.To qualify for the New England tournament, Cole also needed to win his semifinal match over Class A state champion Killian Murphy of Marshwood. Down 2-0 in the final period, Burns said Cole “patiently waited for the proper opportunity,” then pinned Murphy before time expired. After securing a second-place finish, Cole was pulled from the tournament and did not compete in the finals.Petros pinned Logan Martin of Massabesic in the first round, then lost an 8-4 decision to Class A state champion Dominic Day of Biddeford. Petros went on to beat Class C state champion Bryce Whittemore of Dirigo by a score of 9-7 in the consolation semifinals, then pinned Kameron Doucette of Skowhegan in the consolation finals to place third.As for the other two Ellsworth wrestlers, Burns said Goodman suffered a heartbreaking last-second loss to tournament runner up, Robert Heatherman of Mount Ararat in the semifinals.Goodman and Robidoux each had one victory before being eliminated for the day.last_img read more

Cricket News Gautam Gambhir announces retirement: Here’s the full text

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Former India opening batsman Gautam Gambhir on Tuesday announced his retirement from all forms of cricket, saying his time to continue with the game was over. The 37-year-old Delhi batsman announced his decision in an emotional video post on his Twitter handle.Gambhir played in 58 Tests between 2004 and 2016, scoring 4154 runs at an average of 41.95, with the help of nine hundreds and 22 fifties. He also played in 147 ODIs between 2003 and 2013, besides featuring in 37 T20 Internationals.Gautam Gambhir retires: Here’s the full text  Hi friends,A big thanks to all of you for sparing time. Well, I am here to share a thought which I have been contemplating and I dare say dreading.The thought has been with me day and night. It has travelled with me on flights like an irritable excess baggage. It has accompanied me to practice sessions mocking like a menacing bowler. On certain other days it has made my dinner taste horrible.Grounds, dressing rooms, wash rooms, you name it the thought has rarely deserted me. Each time I got out playing for India or KKR or Delhi Daredevils this thought would turn into a sharp, disturbing noise and walk with me all the way to the dressing room shouting: “IT IS OVER GAUTI”.It slapped me hard when I got those three ducks in a row in 2014 IPL. Then again when I had a dreadful tour to England the same year. In 2016 I was on my knees again. I was dropped after Rajkot Test match against England. I was searching for my confidence in that deep, dark pit but I could only lay my hands on the same sharp, disturbing noise. It said the same: “IT IS OVER GAUTI”.But once again I refused to pay attention. I wanted to beat this noise. Instead of getting knocked down, I punished my body even more. The sleep became incidental. Early morning runs on to the ridge behind my house got longer. My personal trainers were instructed to be severe on me. I ate as if I was bankrupt.In these times your love and affection worked as steroids. I wanted to win again. I wanted to conquer again.After a decent 2017 domestic season I entered this year’s IPL with confidence as my best buddy. My feet seemed to have got fresh batteries. My head was still as a pond. And my game, roaring as a raging ocean. I thought all those negative noises were dead. But I was wrong. Six games of IPL for Delhi Daredevils it was back. And this time it was louder than before. Perhaps, my time was up. Yes, my time was up.So, here I am, after more than 15 years of cricket for my country I want to retire from playing this beautiful game. Despite all the aches and pains; fears and failures I won’t mind a repeat of this in my next life too. But obviously with a few more wins for India, a few more hundreds and in the next life may be a few 5-wicket hauls as well.This may sound a little wishful but then I have seen wishes do come true. Two World Cups, highest run-getter in finals of both these games is a stuff dreams are made of and I only had this dream of winning the World Cup for you all. I think someone up there was writing my script but looks like now he has ran out of his ink!But along the way he wrote some fascinating chapters. Somewhere on the top is being part of the number one Test team in the world. A trophy that I look at very fondly is the one that I got for being awarded ICC Test batsman of the year in 2009. For a purist like me it is a reward of somewhat knowing where my offstump was.The historic series wins in New Zealand and in CB series in Australia will be reflected upon fondly. But I do hope the current Indian team Down Under can overshadow our feats. I won’t say the list is satisfactory as I feel I was good enough for a lot more.Along this journey I have fostered some meaningful partnerships. None more than with you guys, the supporters of Indian cricket, the most important stakeholders. I have always disapproved of the terms “fans” or “crowd”. Its quite demeaning because I think at the end of the day it is you guys who make cricket or cricketers what they are.Let me address you all as PARTNERS, the partners without which Indian cricket is a body without its soul. A big thanks for supporting me and the teams that I played for. A special thanks to all my Partners from Kolkata. We both wear our hearts on our sleeve. We both are very demanding and play with extreme passion, may be that is why my love affair with Kolkata will continue forever.Next on my thank you list are the curators, groundsmen and numerous dressing room attendants across India. They toiled for little or minimal returns for what is essentially treated as a thankless job. I hope their life standards improve from that they are now. A big thanks to each one of you.I’d also like to thank numerous net bowlers who bowled to me so that I can become a better batsman. They travelled long distances just to help me practice. Thank you very much.My cricket coach Mr Sanjay Bhardwaj stood with me during thick and thin of life. Whenever in trouble I could count on him. “Sir, I don’t know if I have you proud but I can assure you sir I gave it all that I had.” Sanjay sir introduced me to the other coaching influence of my life, the late Mr Parthasarthy Sharma. He was an institution in the art of batting. A lot of credit for my ability to play spin bowling should go to him. I hope I was worth his time.Former Australia opening batsman Justin Langer was a huge help too. I turned to him in 2015 for some advise. I got that in plenty and some really heavy praises. “JL, I don’t know if you meant that I have the hands of Brian Lara but I thank you nevertheless. And tell your wife Sue that she does some amazing butter chicken.”Through JL I met his childhood coach Noddy Holder. His simple approach of see the ball and hit it back to where it came from makes him one of the best that I have met. He is a very humble man and calls himself “NODDY NOBODY HOLDER”. But for my batting, Noddy was everybody.I’d also like to thank all my coaches that I worked with in the Indian team, KKR, Delhi Daredevils and of course Delhi state teams. Each one them had a huge influence on my career and my personality.The thing that I will miss the most is the camradrie of an Indian team’s dressing room. It was a wonderful place to be in. Yes, there are pressures of international sport but then when you have team-mates like I had these pressures look elementary. I learnt heaps from each one of them. I will miss all of that and more. Thank you guys, you all will be my one, big family.Thank you DDCA and BCCI for helping me realise my dreams. Thank you KKR for giving me an opportunity to express myself as leader.In the end I’d like to thank all my family members for their love and support. My parents, grand parents, both the mamas and maamis, my wife and my two little angels who took all my tantrums and mood swings.I’d like to begin with the original talent scout of my family, my mom. It was she who took me to a proper cricket academy at the age of 10 and rest is history. In my tough times Mom was and is my favourite punching bag. I am extremely sorry mom i have been an absolute jughead.My dad took more pressure than me whenever I played. He never shared with me but his colleagues would tell me he’d never watch TV when my game was on. Dad, you too can relax now.My Maama who shaped me as a cricketer and human being is my real pillar of support. He is economical in words but is lavish in actions. What he did for me can never be matched or measured. I hope I have lived up to your expectations. Without seeking your permission I’d like to brag that I am your biggest achievement. Thanks Maama.My late Maami was like my mother and a friend too. I am sure sitting up there she would still be worried if I ate properly or not. Once she was assured of my meals, she would ask me about my cricketing exploits.My late naani was the same. I miss her loads everyday and most of all today. She was my biggest strength when I was going through the lows of my life. I hope I have done her and my Naana proud. Whatever I am today it is because of them.My other Maama and Maami, thanks for standing by in pressure times. You pulled me out of a rut time and again.To my dear darling sister Ektaa – sorry for not being there on most Rakhis. I am also sorry if I was always seeking attention from you. I am sure I have given you some bragging rights.To my dear, dear friends Vivek and Dinesh – Thanks a lot for being there and praying for me. I am lucky to have you as friends. Especially Dinesh to have taken all the nonsense.A special mention to Natasha, my wife. She is the one who has borne the brunt of my mood swings. Unfortunately she has shared more lows than highs with me. Thanks a lot for being there as my strength. Also babes you will see a lot more of me now. And as someone once said, “a retired husband is often a wife’s full time job.” So get ready for this new assignment.At some stage I would like to shed the retired cricketers tag and would like to recycle myself to be useful for something else in cricket and beyond. Lets see. Currently my immediate worry is that I have to take my elder daughter Aazeen to buy a yellow dress and the younger one Anaiza wants to play with her best friends, the dogs.The next Ranji Trophy game against Andhra will be my last day in the Sun. It is all coming to an end from where it started at Ferozshah Kotla. I am big one on loyalty. I am glad that I could finish with teams that I started my journey with. In this case ending with both Delhi Daredevils and Delhi domestic side has given me immense satisfaction.As a batsman I have always valued timing. I know the time is just right. I am sure its sweet as well. Good bye and good luck.Thanks and regards,Gautam Gambhir, now a former India cricketer last_img read more

Ramdin hits third century of the season but Pride still in control

first_imgTAROUBA, Trinidad, (CMC) – Captain Denesh Ramdin stroked his third hundred of the Regional first class season and second against Barbados Pride but it was not enough to stop the visitors from taking command of their seventh round contest at the Brian Lara Stadium.Resuming Saturday’s third day on 146 for eight, Trinidad and Tobago Red Force were dismissed for 214 in their first innings, to concede a lead of 102 runs.Ramdin, unbeaten on 74 at the start, carved out a superb unbeaten 132 – his 15th first class hundred. His first hundred of the season was against Pride in Bridgetown in the first round last October.Batting a second time, Pride reached the close on 188 for seven, a lead of 290 runs heading into today’s final day.All-rounder Shamar Springer top-scored with an unbeaten 38, captain Shamarh Brooks scored 37 while Anthony Alleyne and Kenroy Williams chipped in with 26 each.Leg-spinner Imran Khan has so far taken three for 70 and was supported by off-spinner Bryan Bryan Charles with two for 56.Looking to capitalise on their more than handy first innings advantage, Pride got off to a poor start in their second innings when they lost in-form opener Shayne Moseley for three in the seventh over, lbw to lively left-arm seamer Daniel St Clair with seven runs on the board.However, Brooks and Alleyne came together to restore order to the innings, putting on 53 for the second wicket.The right-handed Brooks produced a brisk knock, striking five fours and a six off just 28 deliveries while the left-handed Alleyne was more patient in a 79-ball innings that included two fours.When Brooks was bowled by pacer Roshon Primus, Alleyne added a further 41 for the third wicket with Carter before finally perishing bowled by Imran Khan.His dismissal, however, triggered a slump as four wickets tumbled for 21 runs, leaving Pride tottering on 122 for six.Springer then propped up the innings by anchoring two stands – putting on 33 in a seventh wicket stand with Williams and another 33 in an unbroken eighth wicket partnership with wicketkeeper Mario Rampersaud (eight not out).Ramdin had earlier denied Barbados any immediate success as he completed three figures in an innings that required 294 deliveries and included 15 fours overall.Crucially, he added 68 for the ninth wicket with Charles who occupied the crease for 44 balls for his two runs.Left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican failed to add to his overnight tally, ending with six for 71 while pacer Justin Greaves grabbed the two last wickets of the innings in successive deliveries to finish with two for 26.PRIDE 1st Innings 316Red Force 1st Innings(overnight 146 for eight)+A Jangoo lbw b Warrican 14J Solozano c Alleyne b Warrican 40I Rajah c and b Warrican 0E Nicholson c Carter b Warrican 0*D Ramdin not out 132A Cooper c and b Warrican 1Imran Khan b Warrican 10R Primus c Walsh b Williams 3D St Clair lbw b Walsh 1B Charles lbw b Greaves 2R Jaipaul b Greaves 0Extras (lb1, w1, nb1) 3TOTAL (all out, 104.4 overs) 214Fall of wickets: 1-37, 2-37, 3-39, 4-96, 5-98, 6-125, 7-134, 8-146, 9-214, 10-214.Bowling: Greaves 12.4-5-26-2, Springer 2-0-3-0, Williams 25-9-38-1; Warrican 39-16-71-6, Stoute 7-3-18-0; Walsh 19-4-52-1.PRIDE 2nd InningsA Alleyne b Imran Khan 26S Moseley lbw b St Clair 3*S Brooks b Primus 37J Carter lbw b Charles 21K Stoute b Charles 1K Williams c Primus b Imran Khan 26J Greaves c Rajah b Imran Khan 2S Springer not out 38+M Rampersaud not out 8Extras (b17, lb3, w1, nb5) 26TOTAL (7 wkts, 62.1 Overs) 188Fall of wickets: 1-7, 2-60, 3-101, 4-102, 5-105, 6-122, 7-155.Bowling: St Clair 13-2-29-1, Charles 23.1-8-56-2, Imran Khan 22-4-70-3, Primus 4-1-13-1.Position: Pride lead by 290 runs with three second innings wickets intact.last_img read more

State Department speaker visits campus

first_imgFourteen years ago, Macon Phillips was shucking oysters in Alabama. Today, he is the coordinator of the U.S. Department of State Bureau of International Information Programs. At “Connecting People to Policy,” an event organized by the USC Center for Public Diplomacy, Phillips spoke in depth about his career and how the U.S. government implements digital strategy. The Director of the CPD, Jay Wang, believes that individuals like Phillips provide valuable insight to USC students. “We hope that students can better understand the skills required to do effective public diplomacy work in the digital age,” Wang said. For Phillips, his exposure to international relations and domestic policy issues didn’t occur until he joined the Americorps VISTA and began working for an interim program in Vermont. “This was when George Bush was sabre-rattling to Iraq and Colin Powell was shaking up the UN,” Phillips said. “Some of it didn’t make sense to me, and I later realized our world was run by human beings who have strong opinions.”In 2004, Phillips started working on political projects at Blue State Digital, a web design firm. Though digital tools were in their infancy, they were growing rapidly. “YouTube, Facebook, Twitter: none of that stuff existed in 2004,” Phillips said. “In the last 10 years, everything has changed. It’s an incredible time to be alive.” In 2008, Phillips became a digital strategist for the 2008 Barack Obama presidential campaign. When Obama was elected, Phillips took on a new role as the director of new media for Obama’s presidential transition team. “On the first day, when the president was taking the oath of office, I was at a cubicle launching whitehouse.gov,” Phillips said. At the White House, Phillips focused on fulfilling three goals: amplifying the administration’s message, making the administration’s work more accessible and creating meaningful opportunities for people to participate in different initiatives. In September 2013, Phillips was hired as the IIP coordinator. He said the organization supports public policy efforts that shape the news of the day while simultaneously developing long-term relationships between different communities. One of the notable projects IIP has been involved with is the Young African Leaders Initiative. The initiative originated as a traditional exchange program that soon became overwhelmed with applications. To solve this, the State Department formed a network that would connect the young leaders with each other and offer them courses in issues like women’s empowerment and climate change. Today, YALI currently connects 250,000 members, many of whom organize their own advocacy events, according to Phillips. The success of YALI, Phillips said, can serve as a model for future digital policy initiatives. “We’ve developed a network that possesses its own energy. The U.S. government has catalyzed this group of young leaders,” Phillips said. “YALI is an example of a project in Africa that’s actually helping us with our diplomacy interests.”However, Phillips recognizes that the government faces a number of challenges when trying to use digital strategy to stimulate public policy initiatives. The first is the state’s passivity.Phillips explained that the state department has always just disseminated information to the world. Only a small group of officials had the agency to bring about policy changes. Now, with social media platforms and other tools, people are able to instigate changes themselves. The U.S. government, Phillips argues, must take on a more proactive role. “In a world of connected and empowered non-state actors, we have to figure out how we can call people to action,” Phillips said. “My colleague once said ‘public diplomacy used to be about telling people what they need to know. Now it’s about telling people what they need to do.’ Individuals have more power; they’re able to organize themselves. Institutions like the U.S. government have to not just inform them, but influence and motivate them.” Another challenge concerns how the state department shares and organizes information. “The State Department is a giant organization. As a result, we tend to share information inefficiently,” Phillips said. “We need to find ways to create a ‘default: open’ culture. So, we’ve broken down the walls in our offices, we’ve implemented tools like Slack. But that’s something we’ve got to keep improving.” For Virana Khairunnisaa, a masters student studying public diplomacy, Phillips’ experiences will help her grow own career. “I work as an officer handling digital diplomacy for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Indonesia,” Khairunnisaa said. “I think learning from other peoples’ experiences in the field is so much more helpful than learning theory.”last_img read more

NFL Draft 2019: Redskins add running back Bryce Love in fourth round despite ACL injury

first_imgEarlier this month, Love told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that doctors told him his knee is progressing well enough for him to participate in an NFL training camp and preseason games. “ACLs just aren’t what they used to be,” he said. Related News There’s little question the Redskins hope – and believe – Love can regain the strength and explosiveness that made him a first-team All-American in 2017 and second in the Heisman voting (behind Baker Mayfield). Love did win the Doak Walker Award (best college running back) and was named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year. Stanford running back Bryce Love went from Heisman hopeful to future hopeful when he suffered an ACL tear in Stanford’s final game in December. Now he’s a Redskin, who made Love a fourth-round selection Saturday, the 112th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.Love rushed for 2,118 yards as a junior in 2017. Even before the injury, Love (59, 200 pounds) came nowhere near that production last season, rushing for 739 yards. He averaged 8.1 yards a carry as a junior, 4.5 yards as a senior.
