first_img Published on March 19, 2013 at 12:33 am Contact Jesse: | @dougherty_jesse No freshman in Syracuse history has hit more home runs than Julie Wambold did last season.On her way to winning the ‘Cuse Awards Female Rookie of the Year, Wambold led the team in home runs (11) and RBIs (34).Thrust into the meat of Leigh Ross’ lineup from the start of the season, Wambold’s bat was not just powerful, but clutch. In just her seventh collegiate game, Wambold hit a walk-off home run that led Syracuse to a 5-3 win over UC Davis at the Cathedral Classic. Then, when the team was near elimination in the NCAA Regionals, her RBI single was critical in a 2-1 win over Long Beach State. But 2012 is in Wambold’s past, and success isn’t coming as easily in her sophomore season. After setting a high bar for herself in her freshman year, she is hitting in the middle of Syracuse’s (9-14) lineup and is seeing harder pitching as a result. Struggling at the plate at times, Wambold is leaning on raw determination and the support of her teammates to recapture her form from a year ago. “She’s playing really well, but I can imagine that she is feeling pressure to play like she did last season,” junior first baseman Jasmine Watson said. “I had a big sophomore slump and know how that pressure feels, and you just have to keep working hard and swing your way out of it.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWatson’s overall numbers were similar from her freshman to sophomore seasons, but her batting average dropped considerably. But by continuing to adjust, Watson was able to find her power stroke, which was instrumental in the Orange’s NCAA tournament run. Wambold is currently hitting .238 with two home runs and seven RBIs. If she can turn it around like Watson did in her sophomore season, the Orange could find its stride just in time for Big East play, which begins at Louisville on March 29. “Of course there is pressure to produce, coming off of a good season and hitting in the four or five spot, but I’m not letting it affect my play,” Wambold said. “I have always worked off the energy of my teammates and am going to do that again this season.”Ross doesn’t just recognize Wambold’s ability at the plate, but also her invaluable versatility in the field. Last season, Wambold played significant innings in the outfield. This year, after the team’s Spring Break trip to Hawaii, she seems to be settling into a spot at second base, but her flexibility remains an asset.“Julie is a pure hitter, we saw that last year and we are seeing it again this year,” Ross said. “But we can also play her anywhere, which makes her that much more special. “As for the pressure she’s facing, hitting is never easy, she’s doing all we can ask for her and she’ll figure out a way to get on the track that she wants to be on.”With Wambold playing second base in recent games, senior shortstop Morgan Nandin is enjoying the sophomore’s company in the middle of the infield. Nandin has a front-row seat to Wambold’s uncanny talent and relentless determination. There is no one more confident in Wambold’s abilities than Nandin, who is sure her teammate will flourish this season.“If anyone can really get going on this team, it’s Julie,” Nandin said. “She is an incredible athlete who can hit the ball way over the fence and play just about any position. It’s crazy. I mean if you gave her a basketball, she’d probably go and dunk it.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgMIAMI, Florida – The Haitian Compas Festival, which was scheduled to take place on May 16, 2020, at Mana Wynwood, Miami, has been postponed.Organizers of the festival say that the decision was made in light of the spread of COVID-19 throughout the state of Florida, and the wider country. The many public emergency declarations and the social distancing directives saw the realization of the festival, which pays tribute to Haiti’s May 18 Flag Day commemoration, as simply “impossible.”The new date for the festival is May 15, 2021.“We understand how crucial it is that Compas fans have time to make important decisions and plans,” organizers said. “But you understand, this is totally out of our control. We continue to defer to the authorities for guidance and there is no higher priority for us than the health, safety and physical well-being of each of you and your families.”For those of you who already purchased tickets, they will be “honored and transferred to Haitian Compas Festival 2021.” Date changes will be reflected on Eventbrite later this month.last_img read more

first_imgSHARJAH, United Arab Emirates (CMC):A clatter of late wickets in the final hour hurt Pakistan’s momentum and handed West Indies a rare advantage on a topsy-turvy opening day of the third and final Test here yesterday.The hosts, entering the contest at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium with the series already wrapped up, were in command at 230 for four in the final session before suddenly losing four wickets for 25 runs, to stumble to the close on 255 for eight.Pakistan’s slide was triggered by leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo, who picked up three of the four wickets to end with four for 74.In-form speedster Shannon Gabriel claimed the other wicket to finish with three for 58, as West Indies enjoyed one of their brightest days in an otherwise wretched series, where they are yet to win a single game.Right-armer Gabriel had earlier stunned Pakistan, snatching two wickets in the opening over to reduce them to one run for two wickets after they opted to bat first.However, 20-year-old opener Sami Aslam spearheaded his side’s revival, top-scoring with 74, while captain Misbah-ul-Haq carved out 53 and Sarfraz Ahmed and veteran Younis Khan both hit 51.IDEAL STARTNeeding a strong performance to turn the page on the disappointment of the two previous Tests, West Indies were given the ideal start, courtesy of an incisive Gabriel burst.With just the second ball of the morning and with a single run on the board, the 28-year-old removed first Test triple-century-maker Azhar Ali for a first-ball ‘duck’, caught at second slip by Kraigg Brathwaite as he sparred at one that bounced and moved away.Two balls later, Gabriel sent back Asad Shafiq also without scoring, after bringing one back to hit the right-hander in front. His initial appeal for lbw was rejected, but the Windies were vindicated on review.Tottering for the first time in the series in their first innings, Pakistan were rescued by the left-handed Aslam who anchored a crucial 106-run, third-wicket partnership with the irrepressible Younis.Aslam faced 172 balls and counted seven fours and a six, while Younis, who gathered a hundred in the last Test in Abu Dhabi, struck four fours and a six in a 100-ball knock.The pair carried Pakistan safely to lunch at 81 for two and kept West Indies wicketless for another 40 minutes afterward, before being separated.Younis, twice let off on 30 in the same over from off-spinner Roston Chase prior to lunch, reached his half-century just over half-hour following the resumption, when he clobbered Chase over the ropes at midwicket.Attempting to repeat the stroke in the bowler’s next over, the right-handed Younis succeeded only in top-edging a catch to Leon Johnson at midwicket.However, West Indies remained without further success in the session as Misbah anchored the first of two partnerships to put Pakistan on top.He put on 43 for the fourth wicket with Aslam, a stand which left the hosts on 148 for three at tea. And when Aslam perished in the first over after the break with just two runs added, gloving a reverse sweep at Bishoo to captain Jason Holder at slip, Misbah combined with Sarfraz to again frustrate the Windies.The pair posted 80 for the fifth wicket with both playing positively and allowing Pakistan to march dominantly through the next hour.MORE BOUNDARIESMisbah, unbeaten on 18 at tea, took on Bishoo in the fifth over after the interval, thumping him for a back-to-back leg-side four and six, to move into the 30s.He then swept Chase for four before reverse-sweeping Bishoo for a couple, to raise his second half-century in as many innings, on the stroke of the drinks break.Off the first ball on the resumption, he was adjudged to have touched a reverse sweep through to the wicketkeeper off Bishoo, after facing 123 deliveries and striking three fours and a six.His dismissal triggered the slide as Bishoo clinically sliced through the lower order.ScoreboardPAKISTAN 1st inningsSami Aslam c Holder b Bishoo 74Azhar Ali c Brathwaite b Gabriel 0Asad Shafiq lbw b Gabriel 0Younis Khan c Johnson b Chase 51*Misbah-ul-Haq c wkp Dowrich b Bishoo 53+Sarfraz Ahmed b Gabriel 51Mohammad Nawaz st wkp Dowrich b Bishoo 6Wahab Riaz lbw b Bishoo 4Yasir Shah not out 1Mohammad Amir not out 6Extras (lb4, w1, nb4) 9TOTAL (8 wkts, 83 overs) 255To bat: Zulfiqar BabarFall of wickets: 1-1, 2-1, 3-107, 4-150, 5-230, 6-242, 7-248, 8-248.Bowling: Gabriel 17-1-58-3 (nb2), Joseph 15-5-43-0 (w1, nb2), Holder 12-4-29-0, Chase 20-5-47-1, Bishoo 19-2-74-4.Toss: Pakistan.Umpires: M Gough, P Reiffel; TV – R Illingworth.last_img read more
