Swimming & Diving and Fencing: Champions!

 

 

§  Congratulations to the Big Ten Conference champion women’s swimming and diving team, which won the sixth team title in school history and first in 34 years (1986). Three Buckeyes won individual Big Ten titles – Kathrin Demler (500 free), Mackenzie Crawford (1-meter springboard), Molly Kowal (1,650 free) – and the 200 free relay team of Taylor PetrakFreya RaynerAmy Fulmer and Lucija Jurkovic-Periscija was also victorious. It was a total team effort. “A lot of belief, a lot of faith and a heck of a lot of hard work,” said head coach Bill Dorenkott.

 

§  And how about this: Dorenkott is now a four-time Big Ten Conference champion as a head coach which moves him into sole possession of fifth place in Big Ten women’s swimming history. And this needs to be researched: has there been a swimming head coach – men’s or women’s – win a Big Ten title with two schools? Dorenkott won three at Penn State. Hmmm…

 

§  It was a great weekend for coach Don Anthony, his staff and fencers as both the women’s and men’s teams won Midwest Fencing Conference championships at French Field House. Buckeye fencers swept the individual event titles on Saturday with Alexanne Verret (epee), Camilla Rivano (foil), Julieta Toledo (sabre), Henry Lange (epee), Diego Cervantes (foil) and Roscoe Swartz (sabre) all winning championships. The men have now won back-to-back MFC titles.

 

§  Men’s basketball improved its record to 4-0 against Top 10 teams (victories over Villanova, North Carolina, Kentucky and now Maryland) with a 79-72 win over Maryland Sunday. Five Buckeyes were in double figures led by Luther Muhammad’s 22. Ohio State is 18-10 overall and 8-8 in the Big Ten.

 

§  Three goals in the final five minutes powered men’s hockey to a 4-2 comeback victory at Michigan State on Saturday. The win gave Ohio State a sweep of the weekend series and moved it into a second-place tie in the Big Ten standings with 37 points, trailing only Penn State (41 pts.), which has completed its league schedule. No. 12 Ohio State hosts Wisconsin this weekend very much in the running for a championship.

§  It was senior weekend for the women’s hockey team and 3-0 and 6-3 wins over St. Cloud State gives the Buckeyes a third consecutive 20-win season, extending the school record of 20-or-more victory seasons. Honored this weekend were seniors Elise RiemenschneiderRebecca FreiburgerOlivia Soares and Jincy Dunne. The No. 5 Buckeyes are 20-8-6 and will host a WCHA first-round playoff series this weekend.

 

§  Emma Maltais, who set the OSU single season scoring record this weekend and now has 55 points on the year, has been named a Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award Top 10 finalist. The award honors the top player in women’s hockey. The three overall finalists will be announced this Thursday.

 

§  Dorka Juhasz had consecutive points-rebounds double-doubles this past week to help the Buckeyes to a 1-1 mark. Included was a 16-point, 16-rebound effort vs. Nebraska. Ohio State has won six of its last seven games and is positioned nicely in the Big Ten Conference with a17-10 overall record and a 10-6 league mark heading into the final week of the regular season.

 

§  Way to go, Joe! The Collegiate Sports Video Association has named Joe Stanek, our director of football technology, its Big Ten Video Coordinator of the Year. Stanek is now up for the national coordinator of the year honors, which will be announced in May.

 

§  Nine different players scored goals and goalie Jill Rizzo set a school record with her 600th career save as the women’s lacrosse team moved to 4-1 on the season under first-year coach Amy Bokker with a 15-10 win over Cincinnati.

 

§  A season’s best score of 196.475 helped the women gymnasts go 2-2 against Big Ten competition at the Big Five meet this weekend in Toledo. The team scored above 49.000 on each apparatus with Ella Hodges taking first on balance beam and Claire Gagliardi taking first on floor.

 

§  The No. 6 women’s tennis team defeated both Kentucky, 5-1, and No. 24 Arizona State, 5-0, at home this weekend to improve to 6-3 on the year.

 

§  Women’s golf is in ninth place out of 15 teams heading into today’s final round at the Westbrook Invitational in Peoria, Ariz.

 

§  Tamani Wilson (200 meters), Adelaide Aquilla (shot put) and Ryan Harrington (400 meters) were victorious for the women’s and men’s track and field teams this weekend at the Alex Wilson Invitational, hosted by Notre Dame.

§  The No. 17 men’s lacrosse team erased a 4-1 deficit with eight consecutive goals and then never looked back on its way to a 15-11 win at No. 20 Bucknell this weekend. The starting attack unit of Jack Myers (four goals), Tre Leclaire (four) and Jackson Reid (three) combined to score 11 of the 15 goals.

 

§  Men’s tennis is ranked No. 2 in the nation and is 13-1 with four players ranked among the top 70 singles players in the country: No. 7 John McNally (18-4 record); No. 12 Cannon Kingsley (17-2); No. 33 Kyle Seelig (17-6); and No. 70 Jim Trotter (16-2).

 

§  You knew this honor was coming: Madison Green was named Big Ten women’s basketball freshman of the week last week after averaging 23.5 points, 5.0 assists and shooting 68.4 percent from the field in two Buckeye wins.

 

§  Freshman softball standout Avery Clark is two-for-two in terms of Big Ten freshman of the week honors. She was named again last week after batting .500 and slugging 1.250 with three home runs, three runs scored and six hits.

 

§  Gabby Rosenthal (three points) and Andrea Braendli (74 saves) were named the WCHA’s forward and goaltender of the week, respectively, after the Buckeyes’ big weekend win and tie at No. 2 Wisconsin.

European Ryder Cup Qualification Process for 2020 team as explained by the European Tour

The European Tour today confirmed the qualification period for Europe’s 2020 Ryder Cup team will start at the 2019 BMW PGA Championship – the fourth Rolex Series event of the 2019 Race to Dubai – and conclude at the same event in September 2020.

The Tour’s Tournament Committee met on Tuesday night, where they ratified Captain Padraig Harrington’s wish list which included the one significant change from the 2018 qualification process, namely the reduction in the number of Wild Cards from four to three.

The 12-man European Team will comprise the first four players from the European Points List, followed by the leading five players from the World Points List, leaving Harrington with three names to complete the line-up, a decision which will be unveiled in the week after the final counting event.

Harrington said: “I have said on many occasions that one of the reasons for recent European success in The Ryder Cup is continuity. It is a theme that will be prevalent across my captaincy and I think you can see that in the overall qualification process for the 2020 team.

“Having said that, I am pleased that the Tournament Committee agreed to the change of Wild Card numbers. I have spoken to a number of people regarding the ninth player automatically qualifying for the team and in my experience, a player is more comfortable when he has qualified, hence my reasoning behind this change.

“I am also delighted to be starting and ending the process at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. It is one of our most prestigious events, played at an iconic venue and the home of the European Tour itself, and will help give a real narrative to the qualification race.”

Available Race to Dubai points and World Ranking points will be multiplied by 1.5 towards the end of the qualification period, the tournament where this starts to be confirmed when the European Tour issues its 2020 schedule later this year.

Also similar to last year, qualification points in both 2019 and 2020 will not be available anywhere in the world from a tournament played opposite a Rolex Series event, further enhancing the status of the premier series of events on the European Tour.

Guy Kinnings, European Ryder Cup Director, said: “It is fitting that we start and end Team Europe’s 2020 Ryder Cup qualification journey at the prestigious BMW PGA Championship, which as well as being one of our core Rolex Series events, celebrates its 65th anniversary edition in September this year.

“As Official Partners, both BMW and Rolex have played a very significant role in the global success and growth of The Ryder Cup, and we all look forward to watching Europe’s best golfers in the world battle it out for their place in the 2020 team.”

The 43rd edition of The Ryder Cup will be played on the Straits Course at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin from September 25-27, 2020.

Sinclair Men’s Basketball wins record-setting 102-100 in double overtime over Hocking College

Dayton, OH​ – The Sinclair (14-11) Men’s Basketball Team traveled to Hocking College for a conference match Wednesday February 12. The Pride won a highly competitive contest that took going into 2 OTs to pull out the win 102-100. After going five years without an OT game for the Sinclair program, they were faced with back-to-back overtime meetings and sneaked out the win on both occasions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Pride struggled on the defensive end early in the game, giving up offensive rebounds on the first 5 possessions and allowing the Hawks to stay close. After the initial struggles of adjusting to the environment and the hostile crowd that Hocking provided, Sinclair slowly came into their own. The Pride were able to play aggressive defense and force the Hawks into low percentage shots. Continuously pounding the paint was working wonders for Sinclair as they were able to get easy layups or force the fouls.

 

Stanley Williams (6-07/FR – Eastmoor Academy, OH)​ had a tremendous half, posting 10 points on 5-6 shooting and 5 rebounds. Once the Pride started boxing out, they were able to take away the offensive rebounds, ultimately Hocking’s best offense. With a 38-30 lead at the break Sinclair still had a lot of things to fix. Shooting a dismal 4-11 from the free throw line and giving up a total of 11 offensive rebounds.

 

The Pride came out of the break and started firing errant and early shots, while falling for several pump fakes before seeing the 8-point halftime lead evaporate. ​Jack Hendricks (5-11/FR – Fairmont HS, OH) ​did a tremendous job playing in the passing lanes and getting consecutive steals. Sinclair took a page out of Hocking’s book and started crashing the offensive glass and saw themselves getting easy buckets.

 

The Pride found the game tied up 74-74 at the end of the 40 minutes. Sinclair was able to start the overtime period with three consecutive 3 point plays. But, even with near perfect execution, the game was knotted up 91-91 as the buzzer sounded. With both teams facing serious foul problems, ​Jack Hendricks ​was able to hit some timely 3s and help Sinclair to a 102-100 2OT win.

 

Nate Ward (6-04/FR – Gahanna Lincoln HS, OH) ​posted 34 points on 10-20 shooting before fouling out late in overtime after posting 34. ​David Brown (6-05/FR – Linden McKinley HS, OH)​ flirted with a triple-double having 12 points, 9 rebounds, and 7 assists.

 

Stanley Williams ​ended with 16 points and 8 rebounds. ​Jack Hendricks ​shot 6-9 from behind the arc having 18 points. It took a true team effort to come away with the win.

 

The win gives ​Coach Jeff Price​ his 306th career win at Sinclair, breaking the school record for most wins in program history.

THE TRANSFORMED UD ARENA

The project transformed the 50-year-old facility into a state-of-the-art venue.  The upgrade, the largest construction project in University history, modernizes the Arena without losing the “soul of the bowl” – the atmosphere that has made UD Arena one of the best places to watch college basketball.
