Lady Tarpons fall to Hidalgo

first_imgBy LARRY GAGESpecial to the PRESSFebruary 5, 2015The Port Isabel Lady Tarpons were on the road at Hidalgo Tuesday night, and lost 41-31.With the loss PI has a district record of 6-6 and remains alone in fourth place in District 32-4A with two games left.“We just flat-out didn’t play well,” head PI coach Blake Ramsey said Wednesday morning. “We hung with them in the first half. The other team came out in the second half and it just seemed like they wanted it more in that third quarter.”The game was close throughout the first half. Hidalgo led 8-7 at the end of a quarter of play, 17-15 at the break, and 31-22 at the start of the fourth quarter.Kelcie Swink was Port Isabel’s leading scorer with 12 points and made it a double-double with a team-leading 11 rebounds. Swink also made five steals.Alex Martinez also turned in a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Karina Vela pulled down 11 rebounds.“Hidalgo came out in the second half and put tremendous pressure on us and we did not respond well,” Coach Ramsey said.Hidalgo won the freshmen game 42-36 and Port Isabel got the JV game, 29-21. The Lady Tarpons JV squad is now 8-4 in district play and 14-7 overall.“We’re still a game ahead of Hidalgo and we’re in fourth place by ourselves,” Ramsey said. “We control our own fate. If we win both games we’re in the playoffs.”Last Friday night at home the Ladies went in front 42-41 for their first lead since late in the first quarter and held on to beat Grulla, 48-47. Alex Martinez led the team with 23 points and Marlen Flores scored 13 for Port Isabel. The Lady Tarpons JV won 58-28. There was no freshmen game.The Lady Tarpons will host Progreso this Friday night, Feb. 6, and will play their last regular season game next Monday at La Feria.“It comes down to effort,” Ramsey said. “Both teams will probably come out and press us, and if we handle the press we’ll be all right.”Want the whole story?

WOMEN’S GOLF: Tide’s Talley wins NCAA title

first_imgEmma Talley became the first NCAA individual champion in Alabama women’s golf history.Emma Talley became the first NCAA individual champion in Alabama women’s golf history.BRADENTON, Fla. – Emma Talley became the first NCAA individual champion in Alabama women’s golf history Monday.She finished 3-under 285 Monday at the Concession Golf Club. Her bogey-free final round of 3-under 69 sealed the one-shot victory.“It was just an incredible week,” Talley said. “I had been playing well up to this point, and everything kind of came together and clicked just at the right time. God’s blessed me with so much, and I just took it and ran with it.”Talley entered the final round with a one-stroke lead. She started on the back nine, and played the first nine at even-par, making pars on all nine holes. When her birdie putt on the par-4 18th lipped out and Duke’s Leona Maguire took the lead at 1-under, Talley would answer right back with a birdie on the par-4 first.Continuing her bogey-free round, the junior golfer from Princeton, Kentucky, would par No. 2, before making birdie on the par-5 third, once again countering Maguire’s birdie, and moving to 2 under.Clutch putting on the par-3 fourth, the par-3 sixth, and the par-4 eighth preserved Talley’s 2 under, and she would walk to her final hole with a one-stroke lead.On the par-4 ninth, Talley’s tee shot would find the fairway bunker. She would hit seven-iron from the sand 148 yards from the hole, and would land it on the green, within eight feet of the hole.“It was as good (a shot) as I’ve seen,” head coach Mic Potter said. “Up-hill, and into the wind, and to be able to hit it that solid, it never left the flagstick. It was pretty impressive.”Lining up her birdie putt, the horns sounded and play was suspended for 52 minutes for lightning in the area. After the delay, Talley would sink the putt, to close the first, and one of only two, bogey-free rounds of the championships at 3-under 69.“I came back out (from the clubhouse), and all the nerves hit me again,” Talley said. “It was really nerve-racking, but I think my past experiences really helped me be able to take care of that pressure.”On a course that averaged 77.82 strokes per round and penalized golfers with 685 double bogeys and higher, Talley did not have a score over bogey. She played the par-4s best in the field at 1 under, 3.98 shots per hole. Talley was the only player to average an under-par score on par-4s.“This golf course is so pure,” Talley said. “It’s really difficult, but it tests you, and I love that. I love the challenge. I had boxes on the fairways and boxes on the greens, and I just put (my ball) in place, and tried to put it in position every time.”The round goes down as Talley’s lowest at the NCAA Championships in her career and her second round of under par of the weekend. The 69 marks the junior’s 16th round of par or lower of the season, and it is her fourth round in the 60s. For Talley’s career, she now has 43 rounds of par or lower, with nine of those in the 60s. The victory is Talley’s second of her college career, and first since her freshman year at the PING/ASU Invitational in April 2013.Talley’s 3-under 285 (70-73-73-69) is the second best under par and second lowest score for any Alabama golfer in a 72-hole event, trailing only Jennifer Kirby’s 4-under 284 in 2010. Previously, the best finish at the NCAA Championships by a UA player was Brooke Pancake in 2012, as she finished second. It is just the 13th round in the 60s by a UA player in NCAA Championships history.With the title, Talley adds to a long list of accomplishments. She becomes the fifth player in history to win a U.S. Amateur and an NCAA Championships individual crown, and the first since Virada Nirapathpongporn (2002/2003). Talley was also a part of the 2014 U.S. Curtis Cup win, and was the low amateur at the 2014 British Open.As a team, Alabama finished 14th at 74-over 1,226. The Crimson Tide shot an 11-over 299, the team’s best round of the tournament.last_img read more

NFL releases list of players invited to combine in Indianapolis

first_imgWith the 2015 NFL scouting combine less than two weeks away, the Ravens brass as well as representatives from the 31 other teams will soon be descending on Indianapolis as draft preparation kicks into high gear.Baltimore’s greatest positions of need — in early February — include (in no particular order) wide receiver, cornerback, running back, safety, and tight end.

The Ravens own the 26th overall pick in the first round and are currently slotted to have six choices, but they are also projected to receive three compensatory picks, bringing the total to nine.Below is the full list of players invited to the combine:QUARTERBACKSAnthony Boone, DukeBrandon Bridge, South AlabamaCody Fajardo, NevadaGarrett Grayson, Colorado StateConnor Halliday, Washington StateBrett Hundley, UCLASean Mannion, Oregon StateMarcus Mariota, OregonNick Marshall, AuburnBryce Petty, BaylorBlake Sims, AlabamaJameis Winston, Florida StateBryan Bennett, Southeastern Louisiana (throwing quarterback to assist with drills)Shane Carden, East Carolina (throwing quarterback to assist with drills)Jerry Lovelocke, Prairie View A&M (throwing quarterback to assist with drills)RUNNING BACKSAmeer Abdullah, NebraskaJay Ajayi, Boise StateJavorius Allen, USCCameron Artis-Payne, AuburnDominique Brown, LouisvilleMalcolm Brown, TexasMichael Burton (FB), RutgersB.J.

Top Marine testifies on explicit photo scandal

first_img Related iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — The Marine Corps commandant, Gen. Robert Neller, answered tough questions from U.S. senators on both sides of the aisle Tuesday about the growing scandal of explicit photos being shared on the Marines United Facebook page and other websites.Neller called the actions of Marines engaged in cyberbullying female members of the corps “truly disturbing and unacceptable.”He told the Senate Armed Services Committee, along with acting Secretary of the Navy Sean Stackley and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Ronald Green, that the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) is investigating the allegations and will hold any service members involved accountable.But some senators were not satisfied with the military leadership’s response.“When you say to us ‘it’s got to be different’ that rings hollow,” Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said. “I don’t know what you mean when you say that. Why does it have to be different because you all of a sudden feel that is has to be different? Who has been held accountable?” Gillibrand pressed Gen. Neller about how commanders would be held responsible as well.“It is a serious problem when we have members of our military denigrating female Marines who will give their life to this country in the way they have with no response from leadership,” Gillibrand said.“So if you’re dedicated to fixing the culture of the Marines and all the services, what do you plan to do to hold commanders responsible who fail to get this done?” she added.Neller has acknowledged that the sharing of explicit photos online is linked to a broader cultural problem that must be addressed.“I’m responsible,” Neller responded to Gillibrand. “I’m the commandant. I own this, and we are going to have to, you know, you’ve heard it before, but we’re going to have to change how we see ourselves and how we do, how we treat each other. That’s a lame answer, but ma’am that’s the best I can tell you right now. We’ve got to change, and that’s on me.”On Friday, Neller made an impassioned request to women who may have been victims of the military’s nude photo sharing scandal to step forward, so that those responsible could be held accountable. As of Friday, he said “less than 10” female victims had been identified.On Tuesday, Neller told the committee that a “small number” of victims have come forward, but he repeated the need for others to speak out about online harassment they had received. Secretary Stackley said a tip line set up for service members to share information with leadership had received 53 calls as of Monday.It’s estimated that 30,000 people had access to the Marines United Facebook page, a private Facebook group originally established several years ago as a support network to help fellow Marine veterans dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder from combat, Neller said. A link posted on the site led to another internet storage site where some members of the group posted explicit photos of female Marines; the link and separate site have since been removed by the internet service provider, according to Neller.Both Neller and Stackley said that about 500 Marines United members had accessed the link that contained the explicit photos. They did not have a breakdown of active duty military personnel who were involved in that site, versus veterans or civilians. Stackley said anonymity can make it difficult to identify individuals online.The other military services are also looking into reports that photos of female service members from all of the services were posted on additional websites.The Marine Corps has the lowest percentage of female members among the five military services, with women making up about 7 to 8 percent of all Marines, and it has focused recruiting efforts on increasing the number of women in uniform.Neller addressed the relationship between some male and female Marines in Tuesday’s hearing.“I mean and the female Marines are a small group in our corps,” he said. “And for whatever reason, there are still some number, and I don’t think it’s separate from the sexual assault issue, but this issue of denigration of women, objectification of women, misogyny, however you want articulate it, are just bad behavior is tied to the way that some … male Marines look at women in the Marine Corps.”In his opening statement, he asked female Marines past and present to trust that the “problem” will be corrected.“I know I’m asking a lot of you right now, but I ask you trust the leadership of the Marine Corps to take action and correct this problem. I ask you to trust me personally as your commandant, and when I say I’m outraged that many of you haven’t been given the same respect when you earn the title Marine,” he said.Neller listed several examples of female Marines who have been killed recently in the line of duty, asking male Marines, “How much more do the females of our corps have to do to be accepted?”“We have to commit to get rid of this perversion to our culture. Enough is enough,” Neller added. He did say that he believes this scandal is “not indicative of the great majority of Marines.”Active-duty service members who take and share explicit photos of someone without their consent can be punished through the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) under varying articles.Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., suggested active-duty Marines should be dishonorably discharged to send a “signal” to deter others from similar behavior.Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., suggested that veterans convicted of these actions could lose benefits coverage.“We need to make it a very frightening proposition for people going forward to be captured in this sort of activity,” Tillis said.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Portuguese league returns as Porto suffer surprise defeat

first_imgDespite the match being played behind closed doors, several Porto supporters made the short trip to congregate outside the stadium.They were left disappointed though, as their side’s title hopes were dealt a blow.Second-placed Benfica, who sit one point behind Porto, could take top spot on Thursday when the reigning champions host Tondela.Promoted Famalicao led the table themselves earlier in the season before a poor run of form, but moved back into fifth, two points adrift of fourth-placed Sporting Lisbon.Fabio Martins broke the deadlock for the hosts in the 48th minute, before Porto equalised 16 minutes from time through Jesus Manuel Corona.But young midfielder Pote had the final say for Famalicao four minutes later as they added another famous victory to their league double over Sporting this season.Earlier, Lucas’ goal in the second half secured a 1-0 win for second-bottom Portimonense against Gil Vicente to boost their survival hopes.The German Bundesliga restarted in mid-May, while Spain’s La Liga, the English Premier League and Italy’s Serie A are all scheduled to resume later this month.However, Ligue 1 in France and the Dutch Eredivisie both ended their seasons early.The restart in Portugal has been overshadowed by bickering between clubs.Health authorities called for games to be staged “in the fewest number of stadiums possible”. Ultimately, 16 of the 18 top-flight clubs will play at their home ground.Maritimo are blocking the league’s proposal to allow five substitutions — up from the standard three — to ease the physical strain on players.Some clubs, including Benfica, are also upset about the decision to broadcast matches on free-to-air television.last_img read more
