C-NS boys volleyball finishes first-ever unbeaten regular season

first_img Tags: boys volleyballC-NSliverpool Though the big goals, especially a first-ever state Division I championship, remained in front of them, the Cicero-North Syracuse boys volleyball team has already made plenty of history in 2019.When the Northstars defeated rival Liverpool Tuesday night, it completed a perfect 19-0 regular season, the first time C-NS has made it through a regular season without a loss.The best part here was that the Warriors, vastly improved this fall, didn’t make things easy for C-NS, nearly grabbing the first set before the Northstars, at 24-24, got back the serve and held on to it, winning 26-24. Liverpool, with a 7-10 regular-season mark, got the no. 5 seed, which meant going to Camillus to face no. 4 seed West Genesee last Wednesday, attempting to turn around a pair of regular-season sweeps it suffered at the expense of the Wildcats.But the Warriors could not do so as the Wildcats claimed the opening set 25-21, and that proved the closest Liverpool would get. WG claimed the next two sets by 25-18 and 25-12 margins, advancing to face top seed and defending champion Baldwinsville in the semifinals.Lexi Carfi had eight assists for the Warriors, with Veronica DeTota getting six assists. Abby Rowell produced a team-best five kills, with Carfi and Sarah Ayling each earning three kills. Helen Nash and Logan Bellrose had four digs apiece. Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story And the second set was close, too, but again C-NS prevailed, 25-22, moving on to claim the third set 25-18 as Brandon Millias was sensational, amassing 42 assists and adding 12 digs.Dan Seliger put away 19 kills, while Kevin Felasco earned 11 kills and 10 digs. Carter Wisely gained nine kills and nine digs, Trace LaRobardiere also earning nine digs. John McDonough contributed three kills.C-NS is the top seed for the Section III Division I playoffs and will meet Fayetteville-Manlius in next Wednesday’s semifinals, with Liverpool taking on Baldwinsville in the other semifinal at Liverpool Middle School that same night.last_img read more

Badgers, Spartans to open Big Ten play

first_imgQuarterback Scott Tolzien will look to keep the Badgers undefeated when they begin conference play against Michigan State.[/media-credit]With the way last year’s game at Michigan State went for head coach Bret Bielema and the Wisconsin Badgers, they have redemption on their minds this Saturday as the Spartans come to town.The Badgers enter the contest following a 3-0 start to the season against three unique non-conference opponents.As the game marks the opening of Big Ten play, Wisconsin hopes to use the game against Michigan State to evaluate where it stands in the conference, and perhaps prove it has gotten better since the last time the two played.“It’s our coming-out party now,” running back John Clay said. “It’s the Big Ten opener, (and) we’re going to show everybody in this conference what we’re made of and what we can do. This is a good step to showing the Big Ten what’s going to happen in Wisconsin.”Clay has perhaps the most to prove of anyone involved in the game after his disappointing performance last week against Wofford.Following his elevation to the starting role in the Wisconsin backfield, Clay carried the ball just 12 times for 70 yards against the Terriers. More importantly, however, the sophomore fumbled the ball three times, leading to one of three turnovers on the day for UW.Yet, Bielema remains confident in his running back.“I don’t mean to — believe me — I don’t mean to minimize six fumbles on Saturday, but what I do want (people) to understand, you know, through 15 games, John Clay put the ball on the ground four times,” Bielema said. “You know, to put it down three times in one game is unacceptable, but it’s not like this is something that’s been a chronic issue.”Last year’s loss in East Lansing ranked among the worst of the year for Wisconsin, as the Badgers had a chance to win their second straight game and bounce back from four consecutive losses earlier in the season.Of course, the loss would have been easier to handle had it not been for all the mistakes made by Bielema’s squad that allowed Michigan State to erase an 11-point lead.In particular, the head coach made a couple mistakes late in the fourth quarter, including his own 15-yard penalty for some choice words yelled at the referee and an ill-advised timeout call that allowed the Spartans to line up and kick a game-winning field goal.“I said something that I should not have said, in a tone that I should not have said it, in a way that my mother wouldn’t be happy with. So I know that,” Bielema said. “On the same account, you know, the part that I really took forward from that was my reaction to it.”This season, much like Wisconsin, the Michigan State offense looks much different than it did a year ago due to a couple significant departures.Most noticeably, running back Javon Ringer is gone after being drafted in the fifth round (173rd overall) by the Tennessee Titans. Ringer rushed for 1,637 yards last season to lead the Spartan offense with an average of 125 yards per game.Also gone is quarterback Brian Hoyer, who threw for 2,404 yards (an average of 185 per game) and nine touchdowns in 2008. And with the departures of Hoyer and Ringer, the Spartans have had to replace a large majority of their offense from last season.Also like the Badgers, they have had a two-quarterback and two-running back system.Redshirt freshman Coulton Ray has split time with true freshman Larry Caper in the backfield, and though sophomores Kirk Cousins and Keith Nichol have split time behind center, Cousins has been the true story for the MSU offense.Cousins has thrown for more than 216 yards per game and five touchdowns with just one interception, though it proved costly in the Spartans week three loss at Notre Dame.“They’ve got good personnel. I think offensively what I see is they’ve gone through a little bit of what we did, you know, not knowing who the quarterback is going to be,” Bielema said. “Both quarterbacks definitely have skill levels that can help a football team win. Running back has been a little bit by committee. I know they’re really liking a freshman and seen where he’s at out front. They’re physical. They’re big.”After starting last season with four straight losses in conference play, the Badgers know the importance of getting off to a good start Saturday against the Spartans. Still, quarterback Scott Tolzien said practices have not been much different than in the first three weeks.So as the Big Ten season gets ready to kick off, Tolzien and the Badgers’ biggest goal is to continue to improve from the season’s first three games.last_img read more

Artemi Panarin free agency rumors: Blue Jackets reportedly make massive offer to keep winger

first_imgAlso hear the CBJ offered around $12 M or so a year over 8 years …. https://t.co/eb26X03wqT— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) July 1, 2019Panarin posted a career-high 87 points (28-59–87) and a plus-14 rating in 79 games this season along with 11 points (5-6–11) in 10 playoff games.NHL free agency rumors 2019: Live updates, news on signings, trades and moreThe Athletic’s George Richards reported Panarin is likely on his way to the Florida Panthers along with Columbus teammate and two-time Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky. However, with over $28 million to spend on free agents, the Blue Jackets could marginally outbid the Panthers, who only have $25 million in cap space. While the difference is likely not enough to change their minds, Columbus is clearly prepared to spend the necessary money to remain a contender in the NHL. The Columbus Blue Jackets desperately want to keep Artemi Panarin.Despite all reports that he will not resign with the team, TSN’s Pierre Lebrun reported the Blue Jackets offered the 2016 Calder Trophy winner an eight-year contract with an AAV of $12 million. The contract would give Panarin the second highest AAV in the NHL behind only Connor McDavid.last_img read more
