Wildcats score 15th place finish at 40-team UBC-O High School Volleyball Tournament

first_imgIt was a two steps forward, one step back weekend at the UBC-O High School Girl’s Ogopogo Volleyball Tournament for the Mount Sentinel Wildcats of South Slocan.The Cats looked like world-beaters during the preliminary round but then were rocked during the playoffs to finish 15th overall in the 40-team tourney held during the weekend in Kelowna at the UBC-O gymnasium.“On a very positive note, and important at that, we didn’t quit mentally or physically (which is) something to build on for this coming weekend,” said Sentinel head coach Joe Moreira.Mount Sentinel opened the tourney with three wins during pool play Friday.The result advanced the Cats into the round of 16.However, facing some of the best teams in the province — Kelowna Christian, Penticton and France Xavier  of Edmonton,   Mount Sentinel struggled going winless.“We had hoped to improve on Friday’s performance on Saturday, but it was more of the same and unlike Friday the competition was not as forgiving,” Moreira explained.The Cats head right back onto the court Friday when the club one again travels to Kelowna, this time to compete in the Best of the West Volleyball Tournament.“Like the UBC-O tournament we have an opportunity to compete against very good teams,” said Moreira.“Our first test is against No. 6 ranked Single-A, White Rock Christian.”Mount Sentinel Boys return to courtIt has been a rather lengthy hiatus for the Mount Sentinel Wildcats Boys.The Cats have been idle since the opening week of the high school season, a third-place showing in Creston at the Prince Charles Comets Tournament.However, Mount Sentinel returns to the net Friday as the team enters play at the UBC-O High School Boy’s Ogopogo Volleyball Tournament in Kelowna.Mount Sentinel is an honourable mention in the most recent B.C. High School Boy’s AA ranking.sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img read more

10 months agoMan Utd hero Parker: Why would Pochettino leave statues for mess?

first_imgMan Utd hero Parker: Why would Pochettino leave statues for mess?by Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United legend Paul Parker has questioned why Mauricio Pochettino would want to join the club in their current state.The Tottenham Hotspur manager is believed to Ed Woodward’s preferred choice to replace Jose Mourinho, once Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s leaves as caretaker at the end of the season.But Parker doesn’t see the appeal for Pochettino.He told Eurosport: “Everyone will talk about Mauricio Pochettino taking on the Manchester United job at the end of the season.”Poch is moving into an unbelievable stadium with Spurs. If the chairman Daniel Levy can give him a little bit of money in the new stadium to improve certain bits of his squad with the young players, why would he leave there?”If he can win a first English title with Tottenham since 1961, suddenly he’s going to have his own statue outside the ground. If he wins it for Manchester United, they will say ‘we expect you to do that: that’s why you are here’.”Why would Pochettino want to go straight to United after all he has built at Tottenham over the past four years? People will shout about the size of United and the money he would have to spend, but football is not like that any more.”People don’t automatically go and play for United because of the name. First of all, they think they want to be in London and secondly, they think who the coach is. They all want to be around London. Even Mourinho stayed in London as United manager.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Senator Drilling plan carveout for Florida may be illegal

first_imgWASHINGTON – The Trump administration may have violated federal law by exempting Florida from a national plan to expand offshore drilling, a Democratic senator charged Thursday.Sen. Maria Cantwell of Washington state said Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s decision to give Florida a last-minute exemption while ignoring at least 10 other states that made similar requests may violate requirements of the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, which governs drilling in U.S. coastal waters.Zinke’s action is especially outrageous because Florida — unlike California, Washington and other states — did not expressly oppose the drilling proposal in written comments submitted to the Interior Department, Cantwell said.While Florida Gov. Rick Scott voiced opposition soon after the plan’s Jan. 4 release, a letter submitted by the state Department of Environmental Protection last year did not oppose the drilling plan or ask for Florida to be exempted. Instead, the letter warned about the effects of oil and gas activities on the environment and urged that “long-term protection of Florida’s sensitive coastal and marine resources should be of paramount concern” in developing a drilling plan.By contrast, the governors of California, Oregon and Washington told Interior they “strongly oppose any new leasing” off their coasts and asked to be removed from the plan.By exempting Florida but not other states, Zinke showed he is “more concerned with politics than proper process when it comes to making key decisions that affect our coastal communities,” said Cantwell, the top Democrat on the Senate Energy Committee.Carl Tobias, a law professor at the University of Richmond, called Zinke’s action troubling. Singling out one state for exemption “may well violate federal law” that requires formal notice and comment period before taking regulatory action, he said.An Interior spokeswoman declined to comment Thursday. But White House press secretary Sarah Sanders denied the administration gave special treatment to Scott, a Republican and ally of President Donald Trump who is considered a likely Senate candidate later this year.“I’m not aware of any political favour that that (Florida exemption) would have been part of, so, no,” Sanders said.In announcing the exemption for Florida on Tuesday, Zinke called Scott “a straightforward leader that can be trusted.”Zinke added that he supports Scott’s position that “Florida is unique and its coasts are heavily reliant on tourism as an economic driver. As a result of discussion with Governor Scott and his leadership, I am removing Florida from consideration for any new oil and gas platforms.”Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., said Zinke’s action “violates the legal standard of arbitrary and capricious agency action.”Like Florida, California and other coastal states “rely on our beautiful coasts for tourism and our economy,” Lieu said, adding that he believes courts will strike down the drilling plan.The American Petroleum Institute, the top oil and gas lobbying group, also questioned Zinke’s action — but from the other direction. The group called the Florida withdrawal “premature” and said restricting access to the Eastern Gulf of Mexico in particular “puts hundreds of thousands of jobs at risk across the country and along the Gulf Coast.”API spokesman Reid Porter said the Trump administration “should follow the established process” for developing an offshore drilling program, including public comment. “It is important that Interior complies with all the legal procedures and requirements for putting together” a drilling program on the Outer Continental Shelf, Porter said.Questions about the legality of the Zinke’s decision came as bipartisan opposition to the drilling plan mounted. Several governors, including leaders of Washington state, Delaware, Rhode Island and Maryland, asked for their states to be withdrawn from the plan and requested meetings with Zinke.A spokeswoman for Zinke said he spoke with South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster on Thursday and expects to speak Friday with North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper and California Gov. Jerry Brown.Democrats from coastal states accuse Zinke and Trump of punishing states with Democratic leaders while rewarding Republicans.Zinke announced plans last week to greatly expand offshore oil drilling from the Atlantic to the Arctic and Pacific oceans, including more than a dozen states where drilling is now blocked. The five-year plan would open 90 per cent of the nation’s offshore reserves to development by private companies.Industry groups praised the announcement, while environmental groups denounced the plan, saying it would harm America’s oceans, coastal economies, public health and marine life.last_img read more

Strike at CP Railway postponed commuter and freight service to continue

first_imgCALGARY – A rail strike has been temporarily averted after the federal labour minister ordered employees of Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. to vote on the company’s final offers, just hours before they were set to walk off the job.Statements from both CP Rail and two unions representing workers say the minister’s order to administer a ratification vote on each of the two offers follows advice of federal mediators.In a release late Friday, representatives for the unions recommended that their members reject the company’s offers.Earlier this week, the Teamsters and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers gave the railway a 72-hour notice of strike action.CP Rail said in a statement that the minister’s order means there will be no disruption in commuter or freight service.“CP will immediately begin to execute a safe and structured start-up of its train operations in Canada,” the railway said in a statement Friday night.However, a statement from the unions says the company’s offers don’t have a “chance in hell of being ratified.”An electronic vote on the offers will be conducted by the Canada Industrial Relations Boards at an undetermined date.The unions say if the offers are rejected, workers will be free to strike.A shut down of CP Rail services would have wide ranging repercussions.Via Rail Canada had warned passengers Friday that a strike might force it to cancel morning trains on Saturday and Sunday between Sudbury and White River, Ont.And Greater Toronto transit operator Metrolinx had warned of possible delays for customers on its Milton and Barrie lines. It noted CP also owns a section of corridor leading into the Hamilton GO Centre and train service to and from this station would not be provided, although regular GO bus service would continue and extra buses would be put into service.The BC Rapid Transit Company said Friday it would provide buses if a CP Rail disruption stopped its West Coast Express train service in the Greater Vancouver area.VIA Rail and Metrolinx had advised customers to check their websites for updates.Companies in this story: (TSX:CP)last_img read more

Turkey warns ExxonMobil against drilling with Greek Cypriots

first_imgISTANBUL — Turkey’s Foreign Ministry has cautioned an international energy company against co-operating with the government of Cyprus in its search for gas.Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said Sunday that the exploratory drilling ExxonMobil has started in the eastern Mediterranean “did not contribute to the region’s stability” and could change “sensitive balances.”Turkey strongly objects to Cyprus searching for gas on its own. The Turkish government says any potential wealth must be shared with Turkey and the Turkish Cypriots in ethnically divided Cyprus.Aksoy noted he was repeating “warnings” to energy companies about the “Greek Cypriots’ one-sided exploration and extraction.”He says Turkey plans to begin drilling in areas off the northern coast of Cyprus’ coast along with exploring the continental shelf of Turkey, which began last month.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Ohio State womens volleyball sees 20 lead evaporate in loss to No

Members of the OSU women’s volleyball team during a game against Michigan on Nov. 14 at St. John Arena. OSU lost 3-0. Credit: Giustino Bovenzi | Lantern PhotographerAfter taking the first two sets from fourth-ranked Minnesota on Wednesday night, the Ohio State women’s volleyball team had the Big Ten leaders on the ropes.But the No. 16 Buckeyes (22-9, 11-8) couldn’t deliver the knockout blow, dropping three consecutive sets to fall to Minnesota (25-4, 17-2) for the second times in as many matches this season (27-25, 31-29, 17-25, 15-25, 9-15).The loss marked OSU’s second straight and its seventh over its last 11 matches.Meanwhile, the win for the Golden Gophers guaranteed them at least a share of the Big Ten title.Minnesota junior middle blocker Hannah Tapp put forth a dominant performance with 20 kills on a .500 hitting percentage and added seven blocks to lead all players with 24 points.Also breaking the 20-point mark were junior outside hitter Sarah Wilhite (20 kills, three blocks, two aces) and senior outside hitter Daly Santana (17 kills, three aces, three blocks).With hard-fought, extra-point wins in the first two sets, OSU looked poised to pull off the upset in Minneapolis, but unforced errors proved to be the difference down the stretch as it blew the two-game advantage.The Buckeyes committed only one hitting error and attacked .348 in the first frame, though it took all they had to fight off the Golden Gophers. Faced with set point on three different occasions, OSU was able to force extra points and flipped a 25-24 deficit into a 27-25 win.The Scarlet and Gray didn’t find as much success on offense in the second set, but held Minnesota in check (.068 attack percentage) behind five blocks. The teams battled even further into extra points than they did in the first set, but the OSU was again able to find its way to a win.An upset looked even more certain for the Buckeyes when they jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the third set, but things unraveled from there as they would lead only once more — for a brief time in the fifth set — in the remainder of the match.OSU was significantly out-hit, .375-.140, over the final three frames as it committed 19 attack errors (versus only six for Minnesota) and had nine shots blocked.Three Buckeyes notched double-doubles in the loss: senior outside hitters Elizabeth Campbell (18 kills, 15 digs) and Katie Mitchell (11 kills, career-high 14 digs), along with freshman setter Taylor Hughes (career-high 54 assists, 15 digs).Reigning Big Ten freshman of the week and outside hitter Audra Appold led OSU with 19 points by way of 18 kills and one solo block.As it tries to get some degree of momentum heading into the NCAA tournament, OSU is scheduled to wrap up the regular season on Saturday in St. John Arena on senior night against Rutgers. In the teams’ previous matchup in Piscataway, New Jersey, the Buckeyes handled the Scarlet Knights rather easily in three sets. First serve is scheduled for 7 p.m. read more
