Big Ten Championship awaits harriers

first_imgThe Wisconsin men’s and women’s cross country teams will head to the Les Bolstad golf course for the annual Big Ten Championships this weekend. The No. 2 men’s team will look to add to its trophy collection as it hunts for its 8th consecutive Big Ten title, while the women’s team will attempt to improve on last year’s 8th place finish.”I think we’re situated right where we want to be as a team,” men’s head coach Jerry Schumacher said. “And similar to past years, I think the team is improving as we go. Earlier season meets have indicated that I think we’ll be pretty strong when we compete.”Making up the top contingent of runners for the Badgers will be senior Simon Bairu — who has won the event as an individual the past two years — senior Bobby Lockhart, junior All-American Chris Solinsky — who won the Notre Dame Invite last month — senior Ben Gregory — who took 3rd at the Jim Drews Invite two weeks ago — and senior Anthony Ford.Having won seven consecutive titles, Wisconsin will definitely enter the competition with a bull’s-eye on its back, a fact that hasn’t escaped Schumacher.”I think the Big Ten is always strong,” Schumacher said. “It’s probably one of the stronger, if not the strongest cross country conference in the country, there’s probably five ranked, top 25-30 teams in the country in the Big Ten right now, so it’s never an easy meet, so you especially can’t have any mistakes and expect to do your best.”Joining Wisconsin in the rankings is No. 11 Iowa, No. 17 Michigan, No. 22 Indiana, No. 23 Minnesota and No. 26 Ohio State. Iowa, Michigan and Indiana all ran in the Pre-NCAA meet two weeks ago and took 4th, 6th and 8th place respectively. Indiana is led by senior All-American Sean Jefferson, while Michigan and Indiana have a contingent of top runners.Minnesota ran against Wisconsin two weeks ago at the Jim Drews Invitational and finished a close second. With the addition of their two all-regional runners, senior Erik Grumstrup and junior Antonio Vega, who had been out most of the year with injuries, the competition looks stronger than ever in its push to outrun Wisconsin. Talent alone, however, does not win meets.”Things got to go your way that day,” Schumacher said. “We’re working really hard on doing things right and trying to put ourselves in the best position to win and when we get there that day there’s going to be a few other teams there in the same position. …Whoever has that best day that day is probably going to leave there the team champion and we’re preparing to be that team.”The women enter the meet unranked after placing 16th at the Brooks Pre-Nationals meet two weeks ago. Head coach Jim Stintzi has several strong runners, including junior Katrina Rundhaug, who was the 14th-place finisher at the Pre-Nationals meet, but the team has struggled this season. Part their struggle can be attributed to injuries, but with the Badgers healthy, they’re looking towards a solid showing at Les Bolstad.”We’re obviously really excited about heading into the Big Ten championships,” Stintzi said. “We are healthier than we have been earlier in the season. We returned A’ Havahla Haynes, who was second team all-conference last year; she’ll be back for the big Ten championships so she’ll help us come along. I think that we’ve made considerable progress since last year, although we’re probably not where we should be. So our goal for the Big Ten championships is to take another step in that direction.”UW’s biggest rival will be No. 2 Michigan, who is the favorite to win the meet and took first place in the Pre-Nationals meet two weeks ago by placing all five of their scorers in the top 22, and the No. 6 Illinois team which finished 5th at that meet. No. 11 Minnesota, No. 23 Michigan State and No. 30 Iowa are the other three ranked Big Ten teams.”I think that if we would put everything together this year, we could be competitive enough to be a top-25 team,” Stintzi said. “So that would be a step in the right direction and if we’re not a contender next year, we’ll be awfully close.”last_img read more

Guyana’s Recount of March 2 Election to Begin on May 6

first_imgCommissioner Alexander meanwhile, addressed what he said are some “troubling things” being expressed by the opposition side. This was confirmed on Sunday by Commissioner of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) Vincent Alexander. “What is it you want to hide in relation to matters such as taking the list which was used at the place of poll, on which list names were struck off, to determine how many persons turned up to vote and then check the actual ballots to see the correlation between the number of persons recorded and the number of ballots in the box. What is the difficulty in that and transparency? Why do you try to go to the RPA to exclude that and want and use 162 and 22 to include other things?”he asked. “There is no provision for streaming in any of the legislation. So if we are talking about streaming, we can only go to 162 of the Constitution and the RPA 22 which gives the commission latitude. (But) the very people who have agreed to the use of the latitude are also seeking to object to the very latitude for other things,” he told the media Sunday evening. “So, the question on what we do in the recount continues to be a red herring and there are those who are still suggesting, notwithstanding the decision, that we should do a numerical count, while they are shouting transparency. And so the question arises, you are screaming transparency, you are using the latitude of 162 and 22 to call for streaming, but then you want to take away that streaming when it comes to how we conduct the count.” Amid the concerns raised by opposition commissioners, Alexander said the Chairman’s pronouncement encapsulated what was previously resolved. Alexander said if the opposition wants to be transparent, there should be no issue. CMC That includes the intermittent broadcast of the process. Justice Singh also expressed the desire to have the ballot boxes viewed when they are out of the containers so that persons can confirm that there was no tampering with the seals. The Commissioner said there is the recognition that should that be done, the probability of disparities between what is struck off on the list and what is in the box will surface. According to him, “people do not want this to be known.” Although a decision was already taken on the matter, GECOM’s Chairman Justice (ret’d) Claudette Singh will make a pronouncement in writing to commissioners, in what is expected to be the final say on the matter. He said the recount is being conducted under Section 22 of the Representation of the Peoples’ Act (RPA) and Article 162 of the Constitution. However, there are persons who are trying to “use” 162 of the Constitution and Article 22 of the RPA at their convenience. Emerging from a lengthy commission meeting on Sunday, Alexander said the operational plan and final order for the recount are completed, with the Order set to be gazetted on Monday, after the issue of live streaming is further addressed. However, Alexander said the Chairman is leaning towards an audio broadcast instead of a live stream, as she has chosen to “lower the tempo of aggression” displayed in the media including social media, especially towards her. “And so, we have a very difficult situation, where there seems to be an agenda of what is being pursued [by the opposition]. But at the end of the day, we have finalised the plan and order but for that one thing.” The commission meets again on today to finalise the process. GEORGETOWN, Guyana – The long-awaited national recount of the March 2, General and Regional Elections in Guyana will get underway on Wednesday.last_img read more
