The Virginia football team will not play its final game of the season against Virginia Tech, the ACC announced Monday night, following the Nov. 13 shooting that killed three Cavaliers players and injured two other students. , including another player. The match was scheduled for Saturday in Blacksburg.

The decision came two days after a memorial service was held at John Paul Jones Arena for Lavel Davis Jr., Devin Chandler and D’Sean Perry, who died when a gunman opened fire on a charter bus that had returned to campus. following a school trip to Washington.

The Cavaliers canceled their scheduled game last Saturday against Coastal Carolina at Scott Stadium to allow team members, coaches and staff as well as their families and those of slain players to attend the service.

Svrluga: In Virginia, a football team and its coach face the unimaginable

Perry’s funeral is Saturday in Miami, which means the cancellation of the game against Virginia Tech will allow his teammates to attend. Chandler’s funeral is scheduled for Sunday in Virginia Beach, and Davis’s is scheduled for Nov. 30 in South Carolina.

Virginia ends its season 3-7. Virginia Tech’s year ends with a 3-8 mark.

“My job is to lead in times like this,” Cavaliers first-year coach Tony Elliott said last week during a press conference with athletic director Carla Williams. “I had moments where I broke down and showed my emotions, and I even had those moments in front of the team. I think it’s important that we all grieve.

The team has been trying to come to terms with their unimaginable loss since the tragedy sparked a manhunt for Christopher Darnell Jones Jr., who was apprehended the next morning in Henrico County. He faces second degree murder and other charges.

Jones, 23, was a football player for one semester in 2018, and his time on the team under then-coach Bronco Mendenhall did not coincide with those of the players killed or that of Mike Hollins Jr., the junior running back recently. discharged from hospital after several surgeries.

The shooting has left many questions unanswered about the motive as the investigation continues into the past of Jones, who was convicted of a concealed weapons violation in 2021, school officials said.

The Charlottesville community took a step towards healing last weekend in a tribute that drew more than 9,000 people and included remarks from Elliott, Williams, school president Jim Ryan and players .

“For me, the best coping mechanism is young men,” Elliott said. “Having the chance to be around them and see them, and see their pain, see their hurt just inspires me to keep moving forward every day.”

Davis, an occasional starter at wide receiver, hasn’t played in the Cavaliers’ last two games while in concussion protocol. He was on the field for an overtime loss to Miami on October 29, when he finished with a reception for 47 yards. During the season, the 6-foot-7 junior had 16 catches for 371 yards and two touchdowns after missing all of last year with a torn ACL suffered in spring training.

How a U-Va. class trip ended in gunshots and death: “Get off the bus!

Perry, a junior linebacker, played in the Cavaliers’ last game on Nov. 12, recording two tackles in a 37-7 loss to Pittsburgh at Scott Stadium. He has appeared in six games this season. In all, he played 15 games over three seasons and had nine tackles.

Chandler, a junior, hasn’t played in any games this season after being traded from Wisconsin.

“The rules are permissive,” Williams said of the NCAA allowing players to attend memorial services. “We will do whatever it takes to help our players heal and support the families of our three players.”

Fans Accuse ASTRO’s Rocky Of Being “Insincere” In Recent Group Activities https://greenwoodacrescampground.net/fans-accuse-astros-rocky-of-being-insincere-in-recent-group-activities/ Fri, 18 Nov 2022 07:11:00 +0000 https://greenwoodacrescampground.net/fans-accuse-astros-rocky-of-being-insincere-in-recent-group-activities/ Some fans have raised concerns about ASTRO member Rocky’s alleged “insincerity” in his recent group activities.

Some fans have raised concerns about ASTRO member Rocky’s alleged “insincerity” in his recent group activities.

Due to member MJ currently fulfilling his mandatory service duties and member Cha Eun Woo being extremely busy with various overseas programs and filming, ASTRO has been promoted as 4 members during many of their recent programs.

According to some fans, of the four members, Rocky has been noticeably “absent” in some of the group’s content:

“The members were doing a ‘V Live’ after their overseas program, but Rocky said he was tired and just left.”

“The members invited him out for sightseeing, but he didn’t go out either.”

“The other three members filmed v-logs of their visits, but Rocky didn’t do any of that.”

Additionally, some fans criticized Rocky’s “insincere” and “aloof” attitude:

“All the other members had proper birthday parties and the staff helped them put up the decorations and baked beautiful cakes, but Rocky only had a simple ‘Paris Baguette’ cake he was in. a dark studio and it was only live for a few minutes before he turned it off.”

During an interview where all ASTRO members were interviewed, “What was your happiest moment during your career as ASTRO?”

Jinjin replied “As a singer, the happiest moment is when you’re on stage playing your [group’s] solo concert. And every time we release a new album, I’m always excited.”

Moonbin replied “When we debuted. When we came into the world as a band named ASTRO,” as Sanha replied, “I think this is our first showcase for me. When we first met our fans.”

Cha Eun Woo said: “Our solo concert we recently had in June! It was our first in-person concert in a while, and we got to meet Arohas.”

Meanwhile, Rocky said, “I was the happiest when I wrote the song ‘S#1’ on our album.”

Now, some fans have pointed out that the song “S#1‘, from ASTRO’s 3rd full album ‘Drive to the Star Road‘, is Rocky’s solo song that he wrote and composed. It is also the song that features narration and lyrics written by the actress Bo Yeon Park.

Last month, on October 31, Rocky was involved in dating rumors with Park Bo Yeon, a former co-star of the web drama series ‘find me if you can‘. Although Park Bo Yeon’s team denied the dating rumors, Rocky’s team said the two were “Learning to know each other.”

Some netizens reacted to the ASTRO member’s accusations of “insincerity” with comments like,

“Why doesn’t someone like him do his job while Cha Eun Woo breaks his ass????”

“It makes me sad to know how hard the other members of ASTRO work for their group.”

“It’s basically him sending a strong signal that he wants to leave the group.”

“Go solo and see if you can make a living from it.”

“So this one isn’t renewing for sure?”

“The hilarious thing is that no one will even notice if he’s gone.”

“Is it really because he’s dating someone? Or does he really have serious health issues? Because if so, then he should take a break.”

“But does he know that women prefer their boyfriends to have a job…”

“I can’t believe how much he’s changed since late last year, when he was the one who said to the members, ‘Let’s be ASTRO forever.’ He doesn’t do anything with the members anymore. They all started playing golf together except Rocky.”

“So, is he going to marry her???”

“If he’s feeling exhausted, he really should take some time off.”

“He acts like those friends who cut you off when they start dating someone.”

Tordin is the sixth Ivy Rookie of the Year in program history and the first since Mimi Asom ’19 in 2015.

Tordin’s eight goals during the season, which she scored in seven games, led the team and made her the first rookie to lead Princeton in goals scored since 2013, when Tyler Lussi ’17 l ‘did. Tordin’s 19 points were also the team’s best total. While playing in all 17 games for the season, Tordin made nine starts, including six of the team’s last seven games.

Second year Lily Bryant represented Princeton in the All-Ivy League first team after the midfielder played in all 17 games, starting 16, with seven points on one goal and five assists.

Tordin was one of two second-team All-Ivy Tigers with the sophomore backliner Ryan Brown, who has made 12 starts in the 13 games she has played. Princeton has held opponents to 1.35 goals per game this season, posting six shutouts.

second striker Heather MacNabjunior midfielder Aria Nagaiand senior midfielder Grace Sherman were honorable mention All-Ivy.

BROOKLYN NETS (4-6) at DALLAS MAVERICKS (5-3)

When: 8:45 p.m., Monday.

Where: American Airlines Center, Dallas.

TV: Bally’s Sports Southwest.

Radio: 97.1 The Freak, 99.1 FM Zona MX (Spanish).

To monitor : OK, the Nets have been a trash fire so far with all the fuss over Kyrie Irving, parting ways with coach Steve Nash and, oh yeah, lots of issues with Ben Simmons. They expected to have a big three with Irving and Simmons being two-thirds of the equation. But it turned into Kevin Durant and a bunch of guys, which might not be so bad. This group have won two games in a row on their current three-game trip. . . Irving is suspended for at least three more games. Simmons has struggled with inefficiency and various health issues, most recently a knee issue. Durant was left leading a group that includes Royce O’Neale, Joe Harris, Nic Claxton, Yuta Watanabe and a few others. But they got support from some perhaps unexpected corners, like Cam Thomas scoring 21 points Saturday at Charlotte in a 98-94 Nets victory. It was their second straight win after starting the season 2-6, including a 129-125 overtime loss to the Mavericks in Brooklyn. . . Durant was as good as ever, averaging 31.5 points, 6.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists. . . The Nets won in Washington in addition to Charlotte and will look to complete a 3-0 road trip. . . The Mavericks have won three straight and will end a five-game stand at home, trying to go 4-1. They go on a quick two-game trip to Orlando and Washington on Wednesday and Thursday. . . Luka Dončić is off to a monster start to the season, scoring over 30 points in eight games and averaging an NBA-best 36 points per game with 8.8 rebounds and 8.6 assists. . . Spencer Dinwiddie has been scoring better lately, hitting 20 or more points in four of the last six games and averaging 18 in that streak. . . The Mavericks roll offensively with the second-best rating in the league, but are only in the middle of the pack defensively. . . They will again be without Davis Bertans and Frank Ntilikina, although both are closing in on a return to action, coach Jason Kidd said. . . The Mavericks have won five of the last six meetings between these teams, but the last four have all been decided by four runs or less. . . Rookie Jaden Hardy joined the team after spending the weekend with the Texas Legends G-League team. In two games against the Austin Spurs, Hardy averaged 28 points on 50% shooting to go with 4 rebounds and 4.5 assists.

Morehouse College is the latest entity to cut ties with Kanye West.

The Atlanta-based HBCU announced that it was canceling its basketball tournament, which was scheduled to start Nov. 6 at Forbes Arena with the Donda Doves and the Skills Factory. He announced his reasoning in the following statement.

The basketball tournament scheduled for November 6 at Forbes Arena, featuring the Donda Doves and The Skill Factory, has been canceled. We invite students and families to tour the campus and encourage them to learn more about how Morehouse uniquely prepares men of color for a life of leadership and service by empowering young men who are trustworthy and stand mutually accountable to act with compassion, honesty, and integrity as they build community with civility.

Throughout its history, Morehouse College, perhaps more than any other institution, has championed a social discourse that advances equity and healing, especially in areas involving race, culture, and socio-economic disparities. economic. We therefore cannot condone, in perception or implication, recent divisive and unproductive statements from Ye, formerly known as Kanye West.

The Donda Doves are a basketball team for West’s private school. Morehouse follows several other entities who cut ties with the controversial rapper over his anti-Semitic statements in a recent interview.

The decision to cancel the games is one that Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown, who recently left West’s sports agency following his controversial comment, disagrees with.

“It can’t negatively impact these student-athletes,” Brown said. “We all have to make sure they complete their final year both academically and athletically.”

Brown had supported the event before it was canceled.

REDWOOD CITY — The King’s Academy football players were as polite as they could be in the post-game handshake line after defeating previously undefeated Sequoia 29-14 on Friday night.

But as soon as they said “good game”, to the last player and coach, they turned one by one to their touchline and sprinted back, unleashing the cries they were holding inside.

The schedule worked perfectly. The final game of the PAL/SCVAL El Camino division was the league final for both teams, a win-win contest for a championship. It was an unusual game in that a year ago King’s Academy was in the Peninsula Athletic League’s top-tier Bay Division and Sequoia was in the third-tier Lake.

This year they met in the middle, with the King’s Academy winning the second-tier crown under first-year coach Dante Perez and their first league title since winning at the Lake in 2014.

King’s Academy (7-2 on aggregate, 5-0 in the league) scored zero goals in three trips inside Sequoia’s 15-yard line taking only a 7-0 lead at mid -time. But the Knights went 13-7 early in the fourth quarter with two touchdowns sandwiching a takeaway on an interception.

“It’s a Bay-level experience there,” Sequoia coach Rob Poulos said. “They made good adjustments quickly and very few mistakes. We preached this to our players.

“I’ve been in all three PAL leagues. There are far fewer mistakes when you’re climbing.

King’s Academy quarterback Reid Black rushed for two touchdowns, had two, scored a two-point conversion and had another. He had a 28-point hand. And the assist came with 128 rushing yards from Jeaden Underwood, who has 1,136 this season, and receiver Tylek Barnett, with two touchdown receptions.

For Sequoia (8-1, 4-1), junior Luke Ulrich rushed for 117 yards on 16 carries and QB John Larios gained 97 on 14 carries.

Perez was part of four championship teams in the Central Coast Section at Valley Christian, quarterbacking the Warriors to Open Heavyweight Division titles in 2004 and 2005 and a combined record of 24-2 during those two years. This experience inspired his approach to coaching, which paid off this year.

“I’ve seen what it takes to become a CCS champion, let alone the Open Division…to be the best,” Perez said. “That’s what we’re looking for, to be the best against whoever we line up against. That’s the most important thing I want to bring to this school, to our team and to our culture, and that is that winning mentality and work ethic, that commitment that it takes to become a champion.

His team understood. Before the match, the King’s Academy seniors gathered on the sidelines and stressed the importance of making the most of a last chance to play for a league championship. Their hopes were shaken early with fumbles on two first pass plays in the red zone – each recovered by Sequoia’s Luke Holmes at 12.

Another first-half red zone opportunity ended at the Sequoia 11 when a fourth-and-10 pass was blocked by defensive lineman Tony Veimau.

“I was confident we would keep moving the ball,” said Underwood, whose 5-foot-7 height belied a killer running style. “We made adjustments and came out with a win.”

Underwood’s 42-yard run early in the second half set up the first of two scoring fade passes to Barnett, from three and 14 yards. After Veimau shook the King’s Academy line for a 1-yard touchdown, the Knights responded with a 14-yard black run for a 21-7 lead.

Michael Chow-USA TODAY Sports

The path to the 2023 Women’s World Cup is officially set after Saturday’s draw in Auckland, New Zealand.

The group stage will include a rematch of the 2019 World Cup Finals, with the United States taking on the Netherlands in Wellington, New Zealand on July 27. The United States won that match 2-0 to claim a second consecutive title.

They will be joined in Group E by Vietnam, playing in their first World Cup, and winner of the group’s intercontinental qualifiers including Cameroon, Thailand and Portugal. This winner will be determined in February in New Zealand. Group E matches will be played exclusively in New Zealand.

The 32 teams – including the three teams to be determined via the February World Qualifiers – were split into eight groups from four pots on Saturday in Auckland. The four pots of eight were based on the current FIFA World Rankings.

Co-hosts New Zealand and Australia joined the world’s top six teams in Pot 1 and were drawn into the top positions of Group A and Group B, respectively, in their pre-determined places. They will each play their entire group stage in their respective countries. Their knockout stage routes are also set up so that they play all of their tournaments (if they advance) in their respective country, with the final set for Sydney.

New Zealand are joined by Norway, the Philippines and Switzerland in a very open Group A. Australia will face Ireland, Nigeria and Canada in Group B.

The 2023 World Cup will be the ninth edition of the global women’s tournament and the biggest to date, expanding to 32 teams for the first time. The tournament begins on July 20 with each host team playing. The final is set for August 20 in Sydney.

Comment

It’s easy to miss the tiny iterative changes made to each new installment of EA’s NHL franchise. Often the changes are tiny, adjustments so minor that they hardly deserve comment. That’s largely true of “NHL 23,” which was released on October 14. However, there is one addition to this year’s game that deserves specific praise – the addition of female hockey players to the game’s Ultimate Team mode.

The change isn’t something EA’s sports franchises are known for, but the addition of women to the popular fantasy team building mode is worth celebrating for what it means for women’s hockey. For those who don’t follow the sport, women have long struggled to earn a fair share of the spotlight occupied by their male counterparts. Professional female players have largely continued to play games purely for the love of hockey, absent the endorsements, televised games (outside of the Olympics) and even paychecks that have been the basis of men’s leagues. around the world for decades. Despite the thrilling and tense clashes between the Canadian and United States women’s teams in recent Olympic Games, the stars of these teams have struggled to build a lasting professional league.

It’s a devastating cycle. The reason for not investing in women’s hockey is that there is a lack of interest. But without the money to increase the visibility and popularity of the sport, there will always be relatively few fans left.

That’s why the additional inclusion of female players in ‘NHL 23’ – and the inclusion of Canadian star Sarah Nurse on the cover – is one of the most significant additions the game has made in its more than 30 years of history. Now Nurse and other women like her will be more visible to players of the beloved franchise than ever before. Players will see and remember their names. Hilary Knight, Kendall Coyne Schofield, Marie-Philip Poulin and other greats now have the chance to be recognized away for the four-year Olympic cycle.

Esports stars have shorter careers than NFL players. Here’s why.

It’s not going to change anything for the sport overnight. This is a small step with limited substantial impact on the lack of money around women’s hockey. But raising awareness of women’s hockey is the first step in growing her professional scene. Visibility is important, and this game franchise is a particularly good place to be visible.

Video games are the most popular form of entertainment on the planet, and the NHL, with its work around esports and other gaming initiatives, has leaned into them, helping to bring a young audience to hockey. NHL, the video game, served as an introduction for many to a sport that was usually reserved for those living in Canada and the northern United States. In this way, it has been an educational and enjoyable tool.

Now, with “NHL 23”, he can explain to his users how the best female players in the world play alongside men in the Ultimate Team mode. We’ve seen female gamers compete against males in real life. Manon Rhéaume played two preseason games with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1992 (and is now hired in the Los Angeles Kings’ hockey operations department as a prospect advisor). The aforementioned Kendall Coyne Schofield competed in the 2019 NHL All-Star Skills fastest skater competition, beating Clayton Keller of the Arizona Coyotes and finishing about a second behind winner Connor McDavid. “NHL 23” brings women and men even closer together with equal skill ratings for both genders. So if a female player has an overall rating of 88, she is just as good at “NHL 23” as a male player with the same rating.

“Everything is on a level playing field…any top-rated female player on the ice in terms of attributes will be the same as a male hockey player,” ‘NHL 23’ producer Clem Kwong said during from a recent interview with La Poste. “It’s important not only to represent the landscape of the sport, and the growing popularity and presence of women’s hockey, which we continue to support, but also [to represent the landscape] in terms of gaming experience.”

Before anyone wants to wonder if this is a realistic approach, please save it. It’s a video game. If you don’t want to use female players in your Ultimate Team, you don’t have to (even if you’ll miss out on some of the top talent). And while the ratings may be even, EA developers said size will still matter in terms of game physics.

“A 6-foot-6, 230-pound defender will be able to rely on a smaller player, whether that player is male or female,” Kwong said.

For a welcome addition to female players in Ultimate Team mode, the impact could be even greater. The game will not let a female team play against a male team. If you want to play the USA women’s team, you can’t do it with the Colorado Avalanche, or any other men’s team. I wish it were different. Again, it’s a video game. It’s not real. Injuries are not a concern in digital worlds. Why limit it to matches against the same sex?

From giving players the ability to set concession prices and improve parking lots (unnecessary and a waste of time) to its brand new “last chance” puck movement mechanic (which allows players to land a pass or a desperate shot when falling on the ice and was totally unnoticeable in games I’ve played), EA has created many distractions in the NHL franchise over the years. For once, an addition seems substantial. The extra shine given to the players is resonant. The NHL as a whole has seen women break through more visibly throughout the game in recent years. It’s good to see them doing the same in the most popular game of hockey in the world.

PETERBOROUGH — Superintendent Kimberly Rizzo Saunders and Principal Timothy Conway would like to invite members of the community to attend the South Meadow School Girls’ Soccer Team Pink Game in support of Cancer Awareness Month breast.

When:

Monday, October 17 at 3:30 p.m.

Where:

South Meadow School, 108 Hancock Road, Peterborough, NH.

What:

The South Meadow School women’s soccer team will hold their second pink game on Monday October 17, after hosting a successful pink game last week on October 6.

During the game, players will wear bows and pink socks to show their support for those affected by breast cancer.

The cause means a lot to the players, who had the idea of ​​organizing the pink games on their own during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Many of the players’ family members and relatives have or have had breast cancer, which has led to their desire to show their support and help raise awareness in the community.

South Meadow sporting director Tod Silegy worked to have the women’s team wear pink socks during the game.

The boys’ football team will also join in the support by wearing pink socks during their matches. A parent from the boys’ team donated the money to cover the cost of their socks.

“It’s amazing that the women’s soccer team has been able to come together to support a cause they believe in so strongly,” Principal Conway said. “We hope to see members of the community participate in the pink game to not only help raise breast cancer awareness, but also to recognize girls’ efforts to support a great cause that means something to them.”
