Here’s a breakdown of Syracuse’s scholarship situation. Following the NCAA’s report on Syracuse in March 2015, the Orange was docked 12 scholarships over four years, but that was reduced to eight over four years after SU’s appeal. In 2015-16, Syracuse had 10 players on scholarship, meaning the Orange will now be giving up five scholarships over the next three seasons. According to SU, the team will use 11 scholarships in 2016-17 and 2017-18 and then will use 12 scholarships in 2018-19. Syracuse will return to the full 13 scholarship cap in 2019-20.Bold = Player is on scholarshipItalics = Player has been offered a scholarshipClare Ramirez | Asst.

The University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team dominated the Cornell University Big Red this weekend, beating the non-conference foe 3-0 and 5-2 Friday and Saturday night, respectively.During a weekend when most people were spending time with their family members around a dinner table, there was a family reunion on the ice of LaBahn Arena. Wisconsin captain Sydney McKibbon got a rare chance to play against the team of her cousin, Cornell head coach Doug Derraugh, for the first time in her collegiate career.Women’s hockey: No. 1 Badgers suffer first loss of season to Minnesota-DuluthThe University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team experienced their first loss this weekend against the University of Minnesota-Duluth — a dismal Read…This family reunion was bitter sweet for the Cornell coach as his little cousin would help lead her team to victory, complete with one shut-out for rookie goaltender Nikki Cece. Cece was the Badgers netminder for the second week in a row, and she managed to play with a finesse that is uncommon in a rookie goaltender.The Badgers (14-1-1-0, 10-1-1-0 WCHA) and their goaltender gained momentum Friday, when the Badgers would manage to ice out the Big Red (6-4-1, 2-4-1 ECAC) 3-0. This advantageous start to the weekend would help to extend the Badgers’ success, and the sold-out arena would provide all the enthusiasm this team needed.UW was led in scoring by junior forward Annie Pankowski, who has been having a productive two weeks. The Western Collegiate Hockey Association Offensive Player of the Week had a slow start to the season, not netting a goal until the Badgers matchup against the University of Minnesota-Duluth.Since then, Pankowski has netted a total of six goals in three games and doubled her points this season from six to 12. With Pankowski and the rest of her line finding their momentum, the Badgers proved to be a challenge too great for Cornell netminder Marlène Boissonnault.With a border battle between Wisconsin and the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities looming on the horizon, it was important that this weekend was a successful one for the UW. With many things, including special teams finally falling into place for this team, Wisconsin head coach Mark Johnson told UW Athletics that this weekend was more than just a win for this team.“We’ll gain a lot of things from tonight’s game other than the victory, which is obviously the most important part,” Johnson said. “It will help us become better and stronger.”The Wisconsin-Minnesota border battle begins Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Wisconsin will have home ice advantage in this series, which will be much needed in this heated contest.
Bronze medallist at the 2018 Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Bodybuilding and Fitness Championships, Emmerson Campbell says this year’s tournament held in Mexico has played a huge role in the preparations for his upcoming assignment in November.Bronze medallist at the 2018 CAC Bodybuilding and Fitness Championships, Emmerson Campbell poses with his trophyThe Guyanese body-builder told Guyana Times Sport on Thursday during an exclusive interview that he was happy to have again represented his country with honour and success despite not winning the gold medal.“The experience was great; I missed gold by a point, but third place was really close. Overall, it was very close, but I was thankful that I managed to raise the bar; even though I didn’t win, I managed to improve my physique,” Campbell said.The long-time Sports Journalist has been representing Guyana at the CAC level for three years now, and he noted that this year was no different as he was happy to add more international tournaments to his collection. Guyana’s four-member team finished with two gold medals and a bronze, with Selvon Bruce Whatley winning gold in the Masters and Middleweight categories and Campbell capturing the bronze medal in the M. Physique.“This is the third time I competed at CAC level, the backstage and camaraderie was great, but I can’t wait to get back in the gym. My next competition is November 3rd and I’m very confident I’m winning that competition, because the Mexico tournament put a lot of confidence in me and it showed me I belong there.”The reigning Guyana Physique Champ concluded the interview by highlighting that his work ethic has significantly increased as his quest to dominate the next assignment was his main focus. “Well, I realised my work ethic allows me to be confident. I will continue grinding for my next tournament, which is the Stage of Champions right here in Guyana on November 3rd,” he concluded. (Clifton Ross)
Luckily for me the forecast was spot on as I mentioned Sunday that the main precipitation belt would remain to our south. If it hadn’t, we could have seen over a foot of snow like the Eugene area. Whew! We dodged a bullet.The west side of Clark County like Hazel Dell, Felida and Salmon Creek got a dusting of one inch or less. East of I-5 didn’t get much at all. A little payback for a couple weeks ago when it was reversed. Enough circulation was present Monday afternoon that snow flurries were still falling around the county.Today should be mostly sunny by afternoon but on the cool side. In fact, all week will remain much cooler than average. We should be having highs in the mid 50s by the time March rolls in on Friday. A large trough of low pressure remains parked off our coast and looking at weather charts yesterday afternoon, it was still “possible” someone gets another flurry of snow tonight through Thursday. If it materializes it would not be much.February will certainly go down as the coldest one in 30 years since the icebox of 1989. Friday, March 1, should unfold in the spirit of a lamb with fair skies. Hopefully that lamb will have a good coat of wool as the temperatures remain far below normal. And, Friday is the first day of the meteorological spring. I can hardly wait.Meanwhile around town, weather watcher Larry Lebsack of the Barberton area reports, “Just to put it on record, I heard the frogs ‘peeping’ last Wednesday night for the first time.” Well, that’s a sure sign that spring can’t be too far around the corner isn’t it?Bundle up and make the rest of the week a good one.
