first_imgOxford University rowers were forced to abandon Boat Race trials on Thursday after one of their boats filled with water.The failure of the electric bailing pump on board one boat, known as “Pinky”, meant the race between the two Oxford crews was called off at Hammersmith Bridge. The boats had earlier taken shelter inside the navigation buoys of the Surrey station.Coach Sean Bowden had hoped to restart the race, but fears that some crew members were becoming hypothermic while the boat was slowly emptied of water led to the race being cancelled.Despite the boat taking on water, Bowden stated that its modern design would have prevented it from sinking.Both Oxford and Cambridge held their trials on Thursday, although the Oxford crew got the worst of the adverse weather conditions. Both Cambridge boats completed the course successfully.The Trial Eights are the only chance for the crews to race the entire Boat Race course before the race itself, so this cancellation is especially disappointing for the Oxford rowers. This year’s Boat Race will take place on the 3rd of April 2010.Selections for the Boat Race do not take place based on these trials alone. Two of Oxford’s star rowers, the American internationals Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, were unable to compete on Thursday due to examinations.The last boat to have sunk in the Boat Race was the Cambridge team of 1978, who had to be rescued from the Thames.last_img read more

first_imgJericho home needs removalA home built by Larry Westall has been ordered to be removed as its positioning is a hindrance to the health and habitat of muskrats and migratory birds in the homes nearby wetlands. The $240,000 home is on Browns Trace Road and has remained vacant since it was built in 2000.The house is one of two that Westall built in close proximity on that property. A second home was also outside the buffer zone, though they built a shrub hedge to serve as a barrier between their home and the wetlands to solve the problem.last_img

first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia India opener Smriti Mandhana’s 37-ball 66 went in vain as Australia claimed the tri-nation women’s T20 series with a gritty 11-run win following a sensational five-wicket haul by spinner Jess Jonassen here yesterday.Set a target of 156, India were all out for 144 after being 115 for three in the 15th over.Seasoned left-arm spinner Jonassen was the star of the show with brilliant figures of 5 for 12 in four overs, making her only the third Australian bowler to return a five-for in the women’s T20 format.“It was a really good all-round performance. Getting Mandhana was the game-changer, she was whacking us all over the park,” said Australian captain Meg Lanning.Opting to bat, Australia managed to post 155 for six in their stipulated 20 overs. Chasing a challenging target, Mandhana was up to the task at hand and smashed 12 boundaries in her knock at the Junction Oval.However, Mandhana‘s dismissal in the 15th over, caught brilliantly by Nicola Carey in the deep mid-wicket, turned the match in Australia’s favour as they put the brakes on India’s scoring while at the same time taking wickets.It was the departure of skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, in the 16th over, which dashed India’s hopes of a victory. “In the last three overs we couldn’t take the pressure and ended up losing wickets,” said Harmanpreet, reflecting on the loss.Earlier in the day, India’s Rajeshwari Gayakwad leaked 19 runs in the last over to let Australia off the hook and post a challenging total.Opener Beth Mooney, who was adjudged player-of-the-series for her 208 runs in the event, top-scored for the hosts with an aggressive 71, off 54 balls, hitting nine boundaries at the Junction Oval. At the end of the 19th over, Australia were finding it difficult to free their arms at 136 for five.However, Mooney and Rachael Haynes (18 off 7 balls) hit out in the last six balls to prop up Australia, ruining left-arm spinner Gayakwad’s day.Opting to bat, Australia were dealt an early blow when Alyssa Healy (4) was dismissed in the very first over of the summit clash by Deepti Sharma, extending the wicketkeeper’s woeful run with the bat.Mooney found an ally in Ashleigh Gardner (26), with whom the opener added 52 runs for the second wicket, and then Lanning, who also made 26 during a 51-run third-wicket stand.Deepti, who opened the bowling, finished with impressive figures of 2-30 in her four-over spell, while Gayakwad had 2-32. India’s 16-year-old Richa Ghosh made her first appearance for India, scoring 17 off 23 balls. (Times of India)last_img read more

first_imgThe NCAA is expected to cite the University of Tennessee football program as well as current USC coach Lane Kiffin for a failure to monitor, according to a report published by Clay Travis of AOL’s FanHouse.com Wednesday.The charges stem from improper contact Kiffin and other coaches might have had with recruits during the coach’s one-year stint with the Volunteers in 2009, resulting in a 7-6 mark overall.“I have no comment on that,” Kiffin told reporters. “Nor do I know anything about that.”Although since disbanded, according to Travis, Tennessee’s Orange Pride program, which allegedly made impermissible contact with recruits as outlined by The New York Times in December of 2009, is currently at the center of the NCAA’s investigation.The allegations, initially reported by the Times, state that Vols hostesses had traveled to a high school football game in South Carolina to watch three Tennessee recruits play. One of those three players, defensive end Corey Miller, eventually signed with the school, while the two others signed with North Carolina and South Carolina.Kiffin’s brother-in-law David Reaves, an assistant quarterback coach for Tennessee at the time and presently an assistant at the University of New Mexico, is also expected to be named in the report.As reported by Travis, Reaves made improper contact with recruits personally in addition to instructing hostesses about which highly-ranked recruits to contact and how to contact them.Hostesses were encouraged to contact certain prospects and inquire how official visits to other schools went before encouraging them to sign with Tennessee. Following such conversations, Reaves asked members of Orange Pride to relay updates to him and the coaching staff.If Kiffin, Reaves and Tennessee do in fact receive official letters of allegations from the NCAA, they will have 90 days to respond to the findings.Kiffin has yet to be reprimanded by the NCAA for any major infractions, but reportedly was cited for six secondary violations, all while serving as coach of the Volunteers.last_img read more
