Women’s college basketball: Unique situation doesn’t affect new family-centric NSU coach Nimz

first_imgJason Pugh, Northwestern State Assistant Athletic Director for Media Relations  “The biggest thing is if you go through NSU basketball history, it has a great tradition,” Nimz said. “It’s evident you can win here. The biggest selling point to NSU is the family atmosphere, the fan base, the community. “I’ve had tremendous support from the NSU community, the women’s basketball alumnae and people in town,” she said. “I’ve received letters. I’ve received phone calls. I’ve received emails as if I was already on campus, and we already knew each other personally.” For instance, the new Northwestern State women’s basketball coach has yet to set foot in the place she will call home for the foreseeable future. Likewise, she has not been able to meet in person with the nine returning Lady Demons players. “Although it could be an obstacle, I look at it as a way for us to grow just like every single one of us has learned to grow professionally while doing things from home.” “With every step, every decision I’ve made, I’ve had amazing support and guidance from my family. I feel their love and support in everything I do, and if it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t be the coach I am today. It is 100 percent because of how my parents and my brothers impacted me and how I was raised that I understand how important it is to create a family atmosphere full of love and support.” “These are unprecedented times right now,” said Nimz, who was named to her new position April 11. “Anytime there is an obstacle, I believe there are other ways of looking at it. Instead of an obstacle, it can be an advantage, because it is going to help us grow – one way or another.  “Her level of energy and, we heard it from one of her references, her infectious personality,” Burke said. “That’s very important in a coach. On the very first WebEx we did with Anna, she said, if she was going to be successful as our head coach, she would have to engage anyone from the president to the custodian and everybody in between. That’s something you will see.” Nimz has previous head coaching experience at the junior college level, making stops at Labette (Kansas) Community College and Kilgore (Texas) College for a total of seven seasons. She spent the past two seasons on the staff and UT Rio Grande Valley as the associate head coach, learning “what it takes to be successful at the four-year level.” The philosophies she was able to hone “through trial and error” at those two stops were molded by her two seasons on Lane Lord’s staff at UTRGV as well as the lessons she learned growing up in Topeka, Kansas. “The biggest thing we’re going to face is our lack of facetime together. We need to implement a new offense, a new defense and a new philosophy. Not being able to be on campus, to be face to face with my staff or the young ladies, that is going to create a different avenue of learning. center_img NATCHITOCHES – Like it has for many, dealing with the novel coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic has thrown obstacles in Anna Nimz’ path. However, Nimz has chosen a different tact in terms of defining what establishing herself in a new job during the pandemic has been. Nimz’ ability to focus on the positive – or potential positives – aligns with what she longs to create at Northwestern State. Although Nimz has yet to cross the Texas-Louisiana line and come to Natchitoches, she said she feels her family already has grown. “ I haven’t met somebody that didn’t know somebody or was related to somebody who worked at NSU. You are able to have a Division I program in a smaller setting, and that allows for more family involvement. You’re more than a number. You’re important.” Part of that can be attributed to Nimz’ personality, something Director of Athletics Greg Burke made sure to highlight as one of Nimz’ strengths. As she did when she was announced as the head coach, Nimz pointed out Northwestern State’s winning tradition and the importance it played in helping draw her to the position. “My goal for Northwestern State women’s basketball is to cultivate an atmosphere that focuses on relationships, preparation, really embracing the process and having a positive belief system – not just within our program but really within each other,” she said.  — Featured photo courtesy of UT Rio Grande Valley AthleticsPerfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?Perfect-Dating.com|SponsoredSponsoredUndoTheTopFiveVPNThe Trick Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know To Unlock RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPN|SponsoredSponsoredUndoNews gadgetThis watch takes the whole country by storm! it’s price?

Competitive edge will not be lost

first_imgThere is great anticipation that international cricket will resume soon and with it some unusual changes.  The most talked-about, of course, is the strong possibility of the sport being played in front of empty stands as a consequence of the ongoing covid – 19 pandemic. That notion has sparked several debates one in particular, questions whether the competitive rivalry of the sport will be stripped away because of the absence of live fans. But former test seamer Reon King is contesting that view, revealing to Stabroek Sport that the game’s top professionals will embrace their roles.Reon King “I don’t think the quality of the sport will be diminished because of the absence of fans,” King, who played 69 international matches, said. “Test cricket is played by well-paid professionals and their skill levels are good enough to execute on the day… the only thing is players will have to get used to not having that extra energy of having the fans around.” King reminded that during the initial stages of a player’s career, there were no fans and as such, they have to readapt to what he considered, will be the new norm.  “Some people obviously would feed off the crowd. I think most sportsmen appreciate the interactions with crowds; it gives you that extra boost but with what we are going through at the moment, this [playing in empty stadiums] will be the new normal for now and it’s just something we will have to get used to until things return to normal,” the Guyanese, who took 129 international wickets, noted. Ben StokesKing, who plied his trade on the international scene during the late 90s into the 2000s, said the road ahead is going to be an interesting one since some players respond to the reaction of crowds differently. Some players he said enjoyed heckles from those in the stands and responded with “in your face” performances while others buckled under pressure. The mental side of players, he contended, will be tested in an unusual way.  A few current international stars supported King’s views. “Think about it, we are walking out to represent our country, three lions on our chest and there is a game that we are supposed to win. So whether it is in front of nobody or like we are used to in front of a full crowd, I don’t think it’s going to take that competitive side away,” Ben Stokes told BBC Radio 5 Live when asked whether the element of competitiveness will be lost even if action unfolds before empty stadiums. India captain Virat Kohli – one who feeds off the hype around ram-packed stadiums – according to a cricket Australia article, admitted that the “magical” atmosphere will be missing if the cricket season resumes in empty stadiums. “I honestly don’t know how everyone is going to take that because we all are used to playing in front of so many passionate fans,” Kohli said on Star Sports.“Things will still go on, but I doubt that one will feel that magic happening inside because of the atmosphere that was created.”The experiment of having fan-less international action happened in March between Australia and New Zealand. Players from both sides conceded that it took some time to adjust to the absence of crowd noise.“It was certainly weird,” Pat Cummins said. “Probably in some ways just felt a lot more relaxed than an international game normally,” he added. The West Indies men’s team is scheduled to tour England in July. The tour is yet to be confirmed but one of the considerations touted is playing behind closed doors at “bio-secure” venues like Manchester, Southampton, and Headingley which boast hotels on location. Australia and India are also exploring a similar option.last_img read more

Parkland high school honors ‘those not with us’ at first graduation since 17 killed in massacre

first_imgJoe Raedle/Getty Images(PARKLAND, Fla.) — Nearly four months after a mass shooting killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the class of 2018 graduated and posthumous diplomas were presented to families of the four seniors who lost their lives.Hundreds of seniors from the high school in Parkland, Florida, were clad in sashes that read “MSD Strong” as they walked across the stage to accept their diplomas during a private graduation ceremony Sunday afternoon at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.The ordinarily joyous occasion was bittersweet. Among the those killed in the Feb. 14 massacre were four 12th-graders who should have been graduating alongside their classmates: Nicholas Dworet, Joaquin Oliver, Meadow Pollack and Carmen Schentrup.Each were honored with posthumous diplomas during Sunday’s ceremonies.Principal Ty Thompson welcomed the crowd at the school’s 27th commencement ceremony, saying the commencement would “honor those not with us,” reminisce on the past four years, and celebrate their accomplishments.The event’s program included the aspirational message: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”Senior Eagles, Stoneman High School’s mascot, wore a special sash emblazoned with the rallying cry “MSD Strong” along with their caps and gowns.Some family members of the victims did not attend, telling ABC News station WPLG that it was too painful.“For me, it is too painful to celebrate without Carmen,” her sister, April Schentrup, told the station. “But I am proud of Carmen’s friends and classmates on their accomplishments. They’ve overcome so much. I know they will continue to make positive changes.”Others attended in place of some of the victims.“I did not get to walk with my graduating class, but today I had the privilege to walk the stage in honor of my dead sister,” Meadow Pollack’s brother, Hunter, posted on Twitter. “Hope she’s proud!”Manuel and Patricia Oliver, the parents of Joaquin Oliver, accepted their late son’s diploma on his behalf.Patricia Oliver wore a bright yellow shirt under a vest that read: “This should be my son.”They said they never imagined they would see their 17-year-old son’s classmates graduating without him.“We had a lot of plans for our lives,” Manuel Oliver told ABC’s Nightline in an interview Friday. “These kind of events destroy any plan that you had and leave you in an empty space with no plan at all.”The alleged gunman, Nikolas Cruz, a 19-year-old former student at the high school, is charged in connection with the 17 deaths as well as the wounding of 17 others, for which he faces the death penalty. The teen’s defense attorneys have said he will plead guilty “in exchange for a waiver of the death sentence” and a getting instead a sentence of life in prison.At the graduation, Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon delivered a surprise commencement speech. He lightened the otherwise somber mood with jokes teenagers could relate to.“You won’t be classmates anymore. You’ll be adults who Facebook search each other at 2:00 in the morning for the next 10 years,” Fallon quipped.The comedian also praised the students’ resolve in their March for Our Lives protest back in March.“You took something horrific and instead of letting it stop … you started a movement,” he told the students. “Not just here in Florida, not just in America, but throughout the whole world. The whole world has heard your voice, and that was you making a choice.”Since the mass school shooting, Stoneman’s students have seized on the watershed moment to led a movement to push for tougher legislation on gun control.More marches are expected as the movement evolves.“Huge announcement tomorrow. We’re so excited to let the world know what we’ve been working on the past few months. Get ready! #MarchForOurLives,” junior Jaclyn Corin posted on her Twitter account.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Between Rounds: Olga “Big Bad” Rubin

first_imgUnless you are a devoted MMA fan or a big Bellator fan you might not know the Ravishing Russian born Olga Rubin, at least not yet. Rubin is a rising star with untapped potential that will only get better with time and continued progression in the sport. Rubin however isn’t looking towards the future, for Olga the future is now. July 12th at the Winstar hotel and casino in Oklahoma Rubin will face Julia Budd for the Bellator featherweight title. These two stars headline an exciting night of Bellator fights as the undefeated “Big Bad” gets her much anticipated title shot against the Queen of the featherweights.Olga had a unique path to the Bellator cage, one that made her stronger and set the stage for the young Woman that she has become. Born in Moscow Russia Olga and her family immigrated to Israel from Russia in 1991. Rubin began training kickboxing at her local gym when she saw the first Ronda Rousey versus Miesha Tate fight in 2012. Olga said that was the fight that converted her as a true MMA fan and kicked off her journey as a fighter. Watching Tate refuse to submit to the Rousey arm bar even when Rubin could see it being dislocated sold her on the passion and determination to fight. Training in Holon Israel under local coaches, Ido Pariente and Moshik Keidar, Olga also travels to the UK one week a month to train at Titan Fighter with former UFC fighter Brad Pickett.Married with a son she is a wife and a mother first and foremost. However it was while she was pregnant that her husband saw how much Olga truly loved the sport and the passion she had inside her to compete. Just six months after the birth of Rubin’s son the “Big Bad” was inside a Bellator cage doing what she loved to do, fighting. After starting off 4-0 Olga made a brash statement when she called out Cindy Dandois who was 12-3 at the time. Olga scored a Unanimous decision over Dandois and immediately had eveyone’s attention. Rubin has shot up the ranks with that win and some were already talking about a title fight with Budd. Rubin was quick to explain she was still new to the Bellator scene and felt she needed two more quality wine before making a run at the featherweight title. Turns out Rubin only needed one more big win. Iony Razafiarison was 6-1 and also had a win over the highly touted Dandois. Rubin defeated Razafiarison via Unanimous decision and the stage was immediately set. Budd vs Rubin for the Bellator featherweight title was now in play.July 12th at the Winstar hotel and casino in Oklahoma “Big Bad” gets her shot at greatness under the lights in the main event. Budd is an amazing fighter with a 12-2 record and a 10 fight win streak. Julia Budd defeated Marloes Coenen via KO/TKO to win the title and has successfully defended it twice against Arlene Blencowe and Talita Nogueira. Budd the veteran with experience will not only challenge Rubin’s body but also her head and her heart, something the “Big Bad” said she is ready for. Olga will look to unleash the “Controlled Chaos” that Brad Pickett.implements as she strives to dethrone the queen of the featherweights.I will be there live cage side row 3 watching what will no doubt be an amazing night of Bellator fights. Will Budd survive her latest challenge or will Rubin walk away with the crown? I can’t wait for this one and maybe I will be able to grab an interview with Olga and Budd to share the nights experience with all of you fight fans too.Follow me on Twitter@MSBFightClub@DamonSmith34Check out another ‘Between Rounds” segment featuring Valerie Louredahttp://marylandsportsblog.com/olympics-or-octagon-gold-is-the-only-option/Please follow and like us:last_img read more

Galway United match preview v Athlone Town

first_imgTEAM NEWSPadraic Cunningham (hamstring) will not be risked.Aaron Conway (flu) is also unlikely to play a part against Athlone Town.Alan Byrne and Kevin Devaney both return to contention.REFEREEMarc Lynch Galway United v Athlone Town Galway United welcome Athlone Town to Eamonn Deacy Park tonight for the club’s second pre-season friendly of the season. Kick-off is at 7.45pm.Last week, United were 1-0 winners against Sligo Rovers at the same venue, with Ronan Murray striking in the 90th minute for the Tribesmen.Former Galway United midfielder Colin Fortune brings his Athlone Town side west and Shane Keegan is eager to get another tough workout in the lead up to new season.“We’re looking at it as a collective,” he explained.“We have three friendlies in the next five days. We play Friday, Monday and Wednesday.“It’s all about trying to look at those games as a set and how we can go about getting at least one start into everybody in the squad over those three games. Everybody will get plenty of game time to improve on their fitness levels while also being given chances to prove themselves.“Athlone will be a decent test on Friday night. We were happy with how last Friday went against Sligo and if we could just build on that with another decent showing, it would keep the whole thing ticking along nicely.”Games are coming thick and fast for Shane Keegan’s side, United will play five friendlies in February before they face Drogheda United on the opening day of the season on February 24th.“The middle of this week would have been what we refer to as the peak of the hill in that, the amount of work that we were putting into the players was increasing session on session right up until Tuesday.“Tuesday’s session would’ve been the toughest session that the players would’ve put in. Now they start to come down the hill a bit, we start to ease off gradually, they’re starting to get that freshness back.“Tuesday’s session was tough, they covered serious ground at high intensity. When a group of 22 or so players finish a session where everybody has worked so hard, and everybody is shattered, there’s a brilliant energy from that. The players were all in high spirits, they knew they had all worked very well and that the session had gone well too.“Because you can only have 11 starters, we are trying to look at ways that we can get work into the players that aren’t starting. After the Sligo game, those who didn’t start, did 15 minutes of high intensity, tough work with Johnny O’Connor after the final whistle, so that they’re being worked despite not starting and that’s the plan over the next few games also.” print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Eamonn Deacy Park, GalwayKick-off: 7.45pmlast_img read more
