FARMINGTON, N.M. – Her first season in a Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod came to an end with two awards for Juanita Faddis.The Farmington, N.M., driver earned Allstar Performance State championship honors in Utah, then capped off 2014 with November honors for non-fendered divisions in the Sybesma Graphics IMCA Facebook Fan Favorite contest. “I’d raced a Southern SportMod for three years but this was really a learning season for me,” said Faddis, recipient of a mini-mod door from Sybesma. “The biggest difference between the two divisions is how the cars drive. They have a different feel.” “We had a lot of heat race wins (16) and I was pretty stoked about my finish in the Lady Eagle points (13th) but I’m still looking for my first feature win in a Northern SportMod,” she added. “I’m going to return to the division next year and run for national points, multiple track championships and hopefully to defend my state championship.”Faddis registered a dozen top five finishes in 33 starts at four different tracks this year. Aztec Speedway was closest to home, just 10 minutes away, while Montezuma County Fairgrounds Speedway in Cortez, Colo., necessitated a one-hour tow.She had 15 starts at Desert Thunder Raceway and Diamond Mountain Speedway. All but one of those races was part of weekend doubleheaders. “Price is six hours away and Vernal is 7-1/2 hours one way, but they’re both worth the trip,” Faddis said. “Price is fast. Vernal is banked in one and two and flat in three and four. They’re both fun.” Introduced to motorsports by husband Kevin, Faddis got her four-wheeled start in a local mini-stock division. Kevin heads her crew, assisted by son Christopher “Tubby” and Jonnie Vialpando.

Portugal international Guerreiro tapped in a cutback from Thorgan Hazard after Erling Haaland had failed to connect in the 32nd minute and Hakimi fired in from a fine Jadon Sancho assist — his 16th of the season — in the 78th to make sure of the three points.The Bundesliga resumed last week, with no fans in attendance, after being suspended for more than two months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.Dortmund central defender, Mats Hummels, was taken off at halftime with a knock on the leg, although he did not appear to be seriously injured.They are already missing injured Dan Axel Zagadou and Captain Marco Reus.“I briefly spoke to the doctor,” Dortmund’s Sports Director, Michael Zorc, said. “Mats had problems with his heel.“He has had them in training for some time.“We hope that he will be able to play on Tuesday.”The Wolves only briefly got a look-in when Renato Steffen was sent through right after the restart.But with only keeper Roman Buerki to beat, his shot glanced the bar and sailed high. They have now lost five consecutive home games to Dortmund, the first team to do that at Wolfsburg, while Dortmund have not conceded a goal in their two games since the league restart.Wolfsburg, who suffered their first defeat in eight league games, were left with 10 men when substitute, Felix Klaus, was sent off with 10 minutes remaining for a rough challenge.Reuters/NAN.Tags: Bayern MunichBorussia DortmundErling HaalandJadon SanchoThorgan HazardWolfsburg

The meeting lasted one-and-a-half hours and was held in a cordial atmosphere, according to media reports, including sports dailies Marca and Mundo Deportivo.They said Bartomeu sees Messi as a key part of Barca’s plans to rebuild under new coach Ronald Koeman.There was no comment from the club.Six-times world player of the year Messi, unhappy at his team’s failure to win any silverware last season and humiliated by an 8-2 Champions League thrashing by Bayern Munich, told the club last week that he wanted to leave.The Argentine insists he has a clause in his contract that allows him to leave on a free transfer. It is a claim disputed by Barcelona and La Liga, who say he can only leave if a rival club is willing to pay a 700 million euro ($830.20 million) buyout clause.“I don’t know, I know nothing,” Messi’s father told Spanish TV channel Cuatro after flying in on a private jet.Pressed if it would be hard for him to remain, he said “yes”.And asked how he sees Messi’s future at Barcelona, he replied “difficult, difficult”.Messi missed a medical on Sunday and did not show up on Monday for the first training session of the season.

Mark Hughes has paid tribute to Everton manager David Moyes, who this week celebrates 10 years in charge at Goodison Park.Moyes is regarded as one of the top managers in the country and Hughes says the Scot can be proud of his achievements.“David’s done a remarkable job. Managing a big club like that comes with big expectations and he’s managed that very well,” said the Welshman.AdChoices广告“He possibly hasn’t got the resources that other clubs have but he still manages what he has very, very well.“It’s difficult to be at a club that long – and being at the same club a long time can bring it’s own problems, because people will have heard the same voice over and over again.“It takes a skilled manager to keep making players aware of what’s required of them and he’s done that really well.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

Adrianna Capsello scored two runs, with Mattison Phinney and Emma Johnson also crossing the plate.C-NS, meanwhile, had its own impressive non-league effort that same Monday against East Syracuse Minoa, who is coached by former Northstars great Lucia Meola.Meola’s Spartans had won four in a row going into this game, but state no. 6-ranked C-NS handled them 13-0, moving its overall record to 16-2. Two rallies was all C-NS needed as it jumped on ESM pitcher Shaina Brilbeck for eight runs in the bottom of the first inning, adding five more runs two innings later, plenty of protection for Ariana Corasaniti, who limited the Spartans to two hits overall.Brooke Nicolaos got three RBIs as Francesca LoRobardiere drove in two runs. Corasaniti, Brandi Feeney, Ally Ciafratta and Giana Wameling had two hits apiece, with Shannon Sisco scoring twice to match Feeney and Ciafratta.Liverpool attempted to get a regular-season sweep against West Genesee last Tuesday afternoon, but a single inning proved costly to the Warriors in a 9-6 defeat to the Wildcats.Having beat WG 4-1 two weeks earlier, Liverpool had a 2-0 lead when, in the bottom of the fourth, Cassie Wiggins and Sarah Miles struggled, the Wildcats scoring all nine of its runs.Kayla Hoovler’s bases-clearing triple was one key blow, with Sophia VanHorn’s double also bringing home three runs as Abbey VanHorn had a two-run double.Nearly making it all the way back, the Warriors closed the gap with two runs in the fifth and sixth innings, but couldn’t quite catch up. Alicia Nash hit a home run as she and Julia Wike both drove had two RBIs, with Emma Terzini and Makayla Sweeting each driving in one run.On Wednesday, it was B’ville against Liverpool, and the Bees got the best of it, prevailing 11-3 as it took charge with five runs in the third inning and four runs in the fourth inning to erase an early 1-0 deficit.Young did it all, from pitching a complete game to earning a home run, two singles and five RBIs at the plate. Johnson drove in two runs, with Hawk, Dybacz, Martin and Khyra Wilbur getting one RBI apiece. Alicia Nash (two doubles) and Helen Nash (double, triple, RBI) paced Liverpool.C-NS, meanwhile, shut out Christian Brothers Academy 5-0, Corasaniti getting one more post-season tune-up as she held the Brothers to one hit all afternoon.A run in the fourth inning got the Northstars in front, but four runs in the sixth put the game away as Alayna Harbaugh went four-for-four with a double and two RBIs, while Wameling had three hits. Corasaniti and Jordyn Maldonado both doubled and drove in runs.When the sectional Class AA playoff brackets were released, just five teams were on it – and Liverpool wasn’t one of them.With the top seed, C-NS had a bye directly into this Saturday’s semifinal at the Gillette Road complex against Fayetteville-Manlius or Rome Free Academy, with B’ville, the no. 2 seed, meeting Syracuse in the other semifinal. Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Based on all that had taken place in the regular season, the Cicero-North Syracuse softball team knew that Baldwinsville provided the most formidable obstacle to a third consecutive Section III Class AA title.The Bees, who entered the state Class AA rankings in the no. 28 spot, beat the Northstars on May 8, and continued to play well after that game, too, recording a 6-0 shutout of reigning sectional Class B champion Christian Brothers Academy last Monday afternoon.Kayla Young held the potent Brothers lineup to four hits, all singles, and walked four while striking out eight. Her effort was made easier by B’ville getting to CBA pitcher Maddy Tallman for two runs in the second inning and three runs in the third.
University of Wisconsin women’s hockey coach Mark Johnson is a relatively diminutive man, with feet that don’t strike anyone as being extraordinarily large.Yet when Johnson leaves to lead the 2010 U.S. Olympic Women’s Ice Hockey Team, he will leave behind a rather gigantic pair of shoes to fill.Attempting to do so will be assistant coaches Tracey Cornell and Dan Koch, who currently function in virtual obscurity. Next year, though, Cornell and Koch will reprise their roles as co-coaches — something they have done multiple times before. Both in 2001 and 2002, when they took over mid-season for Trina Bourget, and earlier this year, when Johnson was away coaching the U.S. Under-18 National Team, Cornell and Koch have split head coaching responsibilities.Cornell said having been there, done that will make the transition easier.“It’s not as nerve-wracking because it’s not the first,” she said. “We had a little bit of a glimpse of what it might look like already this season in January. Mark has prepared us well, and we’re confident in the players we have returning and the players we have coming in.”While Cornell, a 1997 graduate of Cornell University in addition to a master’s degree in business administration from UW, and Koch, a 1991 UW grad in addition to a master’s in education from St. Mary’s University (Minn.), may not be new to the co-coach arrangement, it won’t be easy to equal the standard set by Johnson. In seven years at the helm of the women’s hockey program, Johnson has compiled a 201-39-22 record.“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little nervous about it too because it’s a lot of responsibility next year,” said Koch, who joined the program in 2001. “But it’s something I’m looking forward to. I’m very excited about the new chance that Tracey and I will have next in our new responsibilities.”Although not an easy task, both Cornell and Koch bring to their new job considerable coaching experience and hockey knowledge. Cornell was a four-year letterwinner while at Cornell, and she played professionally in Switzerland for one year. At Cornell, she helped the Big Red to a 1995-96 Ivy League hockey title while serving as assistant captain.Koch boasts more than two decades of coaching experience. Prior to returning to UW, Koch assisted the Monona Grove boys’ and Madison La Follette girls’ soccer teams from 1986 to 1990, coached the La Crosse Logan/Central High School boys’ hockey team from 1996 to 1999 and served as an assistant women’s hockey coach at St. Mary’s University from 1999 to 2001.Those experiences, as well as their time under Johnson, have shaped distinct coaching styles for the soon-to-be co-coaches. According to Koch, it is essential that he and Cornell allow those unique styles to come to the forefront.“Obviously, we have to be ourselves,” he said. “We have our own personalities, and so if we try to be someone else the girls are going to see right through that. As far as our demeanor, I think it’s very similar to his. Mark’s a very calm coach … and we’ll stay that way.”Complicating matters for the two is uncertainty regarding next season’s roster. Junior forward Meghan Duggan, sophomore forward Hilary Knight and freshman center Brooke Ammerman could all follow Johnson to Vancouver as part of the Olympic team. If selected, they will be allowed to redshirt the season, but would leave Koch and Cornell with some roster holes to fill.Koch said he and Cornell would use their summer to determine the roster and prepare as much as they can for the upcoming season.“As far as the X/O’s, we got to really wait until the end of August to see what we have as a group,” Koch said. “Tracey and I will sit down and talk about our roles. Obviously we’ll have a few things on our plate, so as many as those things that we can clear off prior to the season starting we’ll try to take of during the summer. But once the season starts it’s the X/O’s, it’s keeping the girls motivated, getting them ready for practice, so all that will stay the same.”Even though Koch and Cornell have some obstacles to navigate in taking over as co-coaches, Duggan said their tutelage under Johnson will serve them well.“Tracey and Dan have been working under Coach for so long, so hopefully they’ll continue some of his great habits when he’s gone and when some of the players are gone,” the Massachusetts native said. “It’ll be an interesting year. … I think it’ll be a little diversity, and a little adversity that the team’s going to have to overcome and kind of just roll with the new coach and see what happens.”Or, more accurately, new coaches.
Shrum has worked on campaigns including the Gore-Lieberman and Kerry-Edwards presidential campaigns.Dowd, who worked as a chief strategist on the 2004 Bush-Cheney presidential campaign and the 2006 Schwarzenegger California gubernatorial re-election campaign, took part in a conversation titled “The Loss of Trust and the Future of America.”The event began with Shrum asking Dowd questions about the current political landscape before opening the room up to questions from the audience.Shrum, a friend of Dowd’s despite their work for opposing parties, began his questioning on the topic of trust in American institutions.“I think we are at a point of time where the loss of trust is at the lowest point it has been,” Dowd said. “Every institution in the country has lost trust simultaneously.”He described how this loss of trust is not limited solely to the government and bureaucracy. According to Dowd, this distrust has also extended to corporate institutions that are now seen as being more interested in profit than the welfare of their employees. He said that mistrust has risen even in the world of sports, where recent performance enhancement allegations are leaving the populace wondering who they can trust.“I think we are at a very traumatic time,” Dowd said. “There are a lot of people struggling with where [they] belong. I think in [this time] it’s a great opportunity if leaders emerge in the right way.”Moving forward to the upcoming 2014 midterm elections and 2016 presidential election, Dowd felt that the candidate who wins, regardless of party, needs to actively work to impact change in the government.“The country wants someone to emerge,” he said. “People want a leader of the country and then leader of the party far down the list. It’s time to make some transformational change in the way the country is run.”Regardless of whether the Republicans or Democrats win the midterms, Dowd said he fears that the two parties will misinterpret the victory as Americans being in support of where their party is headed in a time when both parties have historically low approval ratings. He describes the Republican Party as “a Mad Men party in a Modern Family world” and the Democratic Party as having to overcome the president’s poor approval rating.Identifying himself as an independent, Dowd identified polarization as a serious issue in American politics today, saying that 30 years ago, 75 percent of people were likely to live next door to someone of a different political affiliation — today, this is only true for 25 percent of people. He partially attributes this to the growth of media.“It’s much easier to confirm our beliefs,” he said. “We are uncomfortable with information that might prove we are wrong.”Dowd also described his experience working closely with President George W. Bush. He also said that Bush’s presidency was quickly disrupted by the 9/11 terrorist attacks.Dowd had been asked by the White House to conduct polling on Sept. 10, 2001, to see how the American populace was feeling about domestic and economic policy, and he was asked to fly out to Washington, D.C. on Sept. 11 to brief the White House on his findings.“There was not a single question about foreign policy mentioned in the poll,” Dowd said.According to Dowd, that changed with the involvement of former Vice President Dick Cheney, who took on a greater role in managing White House policy after the 9/11 attacks.“The Vice President didn’t care much about domestic issues. He either wouldn’t come to the meetings or didn’t participate,” Dowd said. “That changed on Sept. 11.”Dowd said Cheney became much more involved in White House affairs due to his past experience in foreign policy. Dowd described the former Vice President’s interests as “not bipartisan.”Following how the country has shifted with both the Bush and Obama presidencies, Dowd said that the most important factor in the next presidential election is finding an effective leader.“Ultimately presidential and national elections are about big values,” he said. “We want someone who is strong and has a sense of community.”community.” Matthew Dowd, ABC News political correspondent and campaign strategist, came to speak with Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences professor and former political consultant Bob Shrum on Tuesday as part of the Department of Political Science’s Political Conversations series on Tuesday.A house divided · Dornsife Professor Bob Shrum (left) and ABC News political correspondent Matthew Dowd (right) spoke on campus Tuesday. – Emma Peplow | Daily Trojan
