Expectations high for women’s crew

first_imgComing off of a dominating performance at their first event of the year, the UW women’s rowing team is expecting to have a successful season.At the Milwaukee River Challenge, which took place after only two weeks of practice for the Badgers, the fours competed first capturing the top five spots, while the three other boats placed in the top 20.As for the eights, the four boats competing grabbed the top four finishing spots.Other than a great start, the Badgers have a lot to be excited about this season. “I think things are going very well especially with our first year in the boathouse,” head coach Bebe Bryans said. “It makes everything easier, especially for the novices.”The Badgers will spend their first full season in the brand new Porter Boathouse on Lake Mendota that was officially opened Apr. 22. The boathouse is a three-story, state-of-the-art facility at the end of Babcock Drive. The 52,000-square-foot crew house includes an impressive moving water rowing tank, workout rooms, sports medicine facilities, the program’s Hall of Fame, team locker rooms and coach/staff offices.In addition, the lightweight eight varsity team, coached by Mary Shofner, is the reigning national champion two times over, having won the NCAA Division I women’s lightweight eight national title in 2004 and 2005.”The open weights are hoping to join the lightweights who have set the standard for what can come out of this boathouse,” Bryans said.With the stern three rowers of the last two championship teams graduating last year, the Badgers will have big shoes to fill, but Bryans called this the “beauty of rowing.” She said, “There isn’t just one [rower,] it’s a team effort, and you need to be strong top to bottom.”This season the team will be racing a lot more than last year, especially in the spring, with hopes that their ability to work hard all season will pay off in the end.”We have a really good schedule, competing against the [varsity open weight] national champions (University of California-Berkeley) two times this year at the Crew Classic and then again in Indiana,” Bryans said. “Last year four schools in the Big Ten went to the national championships and we will be racing all of them, so we’ll be ready.”To prepare for this strong competition, Bryan wants a more aggressive approach to the team’s racing this season.”I think it will be a natural progression from the work we did last year … and we want to be faster, it’s simple,” she said.With high hopes of a three-peat for the lightweight team and hopefully a championship for the open weight team for the first time in a while, the Badgers are looking good early on and appear poised to do great things this season.Saturday the Badgers can be seen participating in Class Day Races, a traditional event in which current rowers, broken down by class, race against alumni boats.Oct. 1 also marks the 10th anniversary of the founding of UW-Madison’s lightweight program which has seen much national success in its first ten years including second place finishes in 2001 and 2002, a third place finish in 2003, and back-to-back titles in 2004 and 2005.Wisconsin will be back in action competitively Oct. 9 in Rockford Illinois at the 20th Annual Head of the Rock Regatta.last_img read more

Syracuse edged by Cincinnati in conference matchup on road

first_imgIn the 10th minute of the second half at Cincinnati’s Gettler Stadium, Bearcats midfielder Matt Bahner launched a shot past leaping Syracuse goalkeeper Alex Bono from the top of the box to push the Bearcats ahead.That lone goal separated Syracuse (8-3, 1-1 Big East) and Cincinnati (5-4-2, 2-0) when the game ended 36 minutes later. The Orange lost its first Big East match this season 1-0 on the road Saturday night. Bahner’s goal and a bevy of SU fouls kept the Orange a win away from earning its most wins in a regular season since 1999.“The difference between winning and losing is so small when conference play starts up,” head coach Ian McIntyre said in a phone interview. “And it turned out that the difference tonight was that great goal from their guy, No. 17 (Bahner).”McIntyre said sloppy play and crucial fouls limited SU’s chances against Cincinnati. The Orange held the advantage in shots and corner kicks on Saturday night, but it couldn’t rally past Bahner’s score for an equalizer.The Orange was called for 14 fouls in the game. One of those fouls — a yellow card on midfielder Louis Clark — forced SU to play portions of the game without one of its top scorers. A red card on forward Tony Asante put the team in a man-down scenario for the last 56 minutes of regulation.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBahner, a senior midfielder, received the ball at the top of the box, squared up his shot and fired. Despite a diving effort from Bono, it hit the back of the net for the game’s first and only score.McIntyre said that there was nothing Bono could do on such a “well-struck” ball.“You could tell that the team that struck first was going to have a better chance at winning tonight,” McIntyre said. “That team wasn’t us, but we’ll learn from this game, regroup and get ready for Rutgers at home on Wednesday night.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 29, 2012 at 11:05 pm Contact Nick: [email protected] | @nicktoneytweetslast_img read more

Zidane, Madrid under fire after ‘inexplicable’ defeat

first_imgJust days after Zinedine Zidane signed a new contract until 2020, serious questions are being asked of the Frenchman’s ability to turn things around after two trophy-laden years in charge.Real have picked up just one point from their last three league games and have won only once in five, form that leaves them fourth in the table, 16 points behind leaders Barcelona, who go to Real Sociedad on Sunday.“No goals, no luck and no explanation,” said sports daily AS on their front page.“Everything is going wrong,” wrote editor Alfredo Relano in his column. “This result sinks Madrid further into the sombre mood that has invaded everyone, including Zidane.”If they had already all but given up on any hope of retaining the league title even before Saturday’s game, there are now even concerns that they could miss out on a top-four spot altogether.Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane reacts during the Spanish league match against Villarreal at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid on January 13, 2018 © AFP / Gabriel BOUYSReal are eight points behind third-placed Valencia, who were 2-1 winners at Deportivo on Saturday. They are also only one point clear of Villarreal in fifth — not since 2004 have they finished outside the top three in La Liga.In Barcelona, the Catalan press seized the chance to stick the knife in.“In crisis”, headlined Mundo Deportivo below a picture of Cristiano Ronaldo, on the ground with his head in his hands.Sport focused on the troubles in front of goal of Ronaldo, who missed numerous chances at the Santiago Bernabeu before Pablo Fornals’ magnificent late winner for Villarreal, their first ever victory there.Ronaldo has just four league goals this season, while Gareth Bale is struggling for fitness and form and Karim Benzema has been injured. The previously feared ‘BBC’ no longer carries the same aura.“The white collapse is basically the collapse of Cristiano and, by extension, that of the whole ‘BBC’, a trident that died months ago now without anyone having realised,” wrote Sport editor Ernest Folch.Relano added: “Madrid started to fall behind because Cristiano was missing; then, because when he came back the goals were not going in; in the end, because the gap at the top provoked a disenchantment that shows.”Zidane is “an elegant coach but has no answers on the blackboard,” according to Folch.There is a danger that his position could become untenable if Madrid — the two-time defending European champions — lose to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last 16, the first leg of which will be played at the Bernabeu on February 14.Frederic Hermel, Madrid-based correspondent for French sports daily L’Equipe, noted that Zidane “still doesn’t appear prepared to make any changes to his team, despite another defeat… (that) leaves a feeling of powerlessness.”0Shares00(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares00Villarreal midfielder Pablo Fornals (C) celebrates after scoring during the Spanish league football match against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid on January 13, 2018 © AFP / Gabriel BOUYSMADRID, Spain, Jan 14 – The Spanish press did not hold back in their criticism of a “shattered” Real Madrid, a team “in crisis” after their 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Villarreal in La Liga.“Inexplicable” was the front-page headline on Madrid sports daily Marca on Sunday, which remarked that the reigning Spanish and European champions “don’t know what is happening to them” in La Liga.last_img read more
