Quebec/Nova Scotia Places 5th in Junior Dressage Team Event at NAYC

first_img Email* More from Horse Sport:Christilot Boylen Retires From Team SportAfter an exemplary career as one of Canada’s top Dressage riders, seven-time Olympian Christilot Boylen has announced her retirement from team competition.2020 Royal Agricultural Winter Fair CancelledFor only the second time in its history, The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair has been cancelled but plans are being made for some virtual competitions.Royal Agricultural Winter Fair Statement on 2020 EventAs the Province of Ontario starts to reopen, The Royal’s Board and staff will adhere to all recommendations put forward by government and health officials.Government Financial Assistance for Ontario FarmersOntario Equestrian has recently released this update of several financial assistance packages available, including those for farm business. Canadian athletes tackled the first dressage obstacle of the 2019 Adequan/FEI North American Youth Championships (NAYC) presented by Gotham North on July 31, completing the Junior Team Competition at Old Salem Farm in North Salem, NY.Team Quebec/Nova Scotia pushed through the day’s heat and humidity to deliver consistent performances from teammates, Ariel Boesener of Canning, NS, Chloe Vandenplas of Sherrington, QC, Marilie Roy of Outremont, QC, and Lily-Rose Lemaire of Drummondville, QC, to end in fifth place on a total score of 195.424.Roy, 17, boldly led the charge with a fluid test on Sam By Guert (Spielberg x Ferro), an eight-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding owned by Nicolas Guertin. Their score of 65.879% put the NAYC rookie combination 16th in the individual standings.“I feel really good about Sam’s performance; he always does the best he can,” said Roy. “He’s still young, he’s always playing, and he had a good time. I had an even better time, so I feel super great about how everything went! Leading up to NAYC, we’ve been hacking a lot, having cardio time cantering, and doing pole work – just having so much fun and not much test riding, which might sound weird, but I wanted him to be in good shape before coming here and healthy in his mental state just as much as his body.”Less than a full percentage point behind Roy was 17-year-old Vadenplas and Bethanne Murphy’s 14-year-old Westphalian gelding, Furst Rubilo (Furst Heinrich x Rubiloh), with 65.121%, which earned the duo 20th place. Lemaire, 15, contributed the final score to count for Team Quebec/Nova Scotia, piloting World Lady (Weltmeyer x Akzent II), a 19-year-old Hanoverian mare owned by Lynda Tétreault whom Lemaire also rode at NAYC 2018, to a score of 64.424% for 23rd. Boesener, who recently turned 17, completed the team’s efforts with a score of 63.970% on her 16-year-old Hanoverian gelding, Winniepuuh (Weltmeyer x Ludendorff).Canada was also represented by Team Ontario, which finished in eighth place after the unfortunate elimination of Amanda Law, 17, of Whitby, ON, and Addiction (Flyinge Amiral x Head of River), Stephanie Jensen’s 20-year-old Swedish Warmblood gelding. This left all three scores to count for the remaining members of Junior Team Ontario: 15-year-olds, Anna Swackhammer of Rockwood, ON, and Kiara Williams-Brown, 15, of Navan, ON, and Logan Iwanoff, 18, of Ottawa, ON.Swackhammer deftly stepped up to the challenge with Melissa Sinclair’s Wrazzmatazz (Jazz x Darwin). The 15-year-old and her 16-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding partner relaxed into their movements with confidence, having been previously part of Junior Team Canada Central, which captured the bronze medal at NAYC 2018.Swackhammer and Wrazzmatazz’s experience resulted in a score of 66.788% for an individual finish of eighth, the highest Canadian placing of the day.“I can’t really complain with how Wrazz went, he never had any spooks, was really calm in the ring and his extended trot felt really good,” said Swackhammer, who has been partnered with the dark bay since March 2018. “I was very excited to be part of Team Ontario this year and it’s good that Wrazz knows this environment. The Individual Test [on Friday] is actually my favourite test, so I’m looking forward to that, and I’m also looking forward to the Freestyle because it’s really fun to do it to music.”Williams-Brown was also part of the 2018 podium effort from Junior Team Canada Central alongside Swackhammer. She shared her lessons learned competing for the maple leaf with a new mount for 2019, Cluseau (Concetto x Calido), Simone Williams’ 14-year-old Hanoverian gelding, resulting in a score of 62.424% for 27th place. Iwanoff added a score of 54.788% aboard Linden Ein (Lux x Wendekreis), a 15-year-old Hanoverian gelding owned by Margaret & Simone Williams, to bring the Team Ontario total to 184.000.A final score of 203.182 secured the Junior team gold medal for US Region 4, while silver belonged to US Region 2, who scored 202.636, and US Region 9 claimed bronze on 199.637.Kathryn Robinson, 15, of Edmonton, AB, also competed in the Junior Team Test as an individual, laying down 65.455% for her first score of the competition riding Forget-Me-Not (Valdez x Ferro), a nine-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare owned by Carol Robinson, to 18th place.Dressage Continues and Jumping Begins TomorrowAug. 1 will once again feature the Dressage Team Competition, this time challenged by Canada’s Young Riders.

Ron Borges: AFC Playoff Race wide open

Maryland Opens Conference Play With a Win

first_imgPlease follow and like us: Maryland defeated the Penn St. Nittany Lions on Tuesday night 75-69. The game was tight the whole way, with neither team having a lead of more than 6 at any time. Penn St. was no easy matchup since they’re ranked #42 on Kenpom, but a loss to them would have still been bad in terms of resume since they were picked near the bottom of the Big 10.Maryland seemed to struggle from the field in the first half, scoring just 1 three, and took a 4-point deficit into the locker room. Luckily for the Terps, their frontcourt stepped up with Kevin Huerter in foul trouble for most of the game. The duo of Michael Cekovsky and Bruno Fernando poured in 27 points and 17 rebounds, and brought some much-needed momentum swings like Fernando’s and-1 to take the first lead of the second half and Cekovsky’s and-1 dunk in the final minutes to put the team ahead for good. If these two can produce as a tandem for the rest of the year, Maryland can survive the season-ending injuries to Bender and JJ.None of this discounts the work put in from Anthony Cowan who has been a grinder all season. He stuck to that formula and went 18-4-2 in 40(!!) minutes. The fact that Turgeon trusts him so much is a testament to Cowan’s growth not only as a player, but as a leader.Maryland has definitely developed since the start of the season, which makes it that much more disappointing that some key players are done. A significant indicator of their progression is the lack of turnovers. I’ve plotted Maryland’s turnovers per game and you can see a negative relationship:Darryl Morsell made some important plays, but he needs to pass on the flashiness in my opinion. He often does a good job of penetrating the lane, but just jumps and has to improvise without a plan. This leads to a lot of his shots seemingly getting blocked or missing badly which made him shoot 20% from the field tonight. As he earns more starting time, Morsell will need to look more for passing to the open player or going in with a plan. I have confidence he can do so, as these were the same problems Cowan faced last year and has subsequently overcome.The Terps will play their next game at #1 in the country Michigan St, so this nice 7-game win streak could very well come to an end. Tip is set for 8pm E.T. on Fox sports 1.last_img read more

Miss Nut back to form with win at Emerald

first_imgThe skies were very dark and we resumed our game after a thirty minute stoppage, but still no sign of any rain, and we all came in after 18 holes with threatening clouds throughout the round but no rain, amazing!There were two 35’s in today with Colin James recording one of them to win division 1.  Welcome back to Takashi Hakozaki, still playing off 10, who came in second with 34 and Billy Fitzgerald was third on 33.Andy Oz was the winner in division 2 on the other 35, with ‘Count back’ Burnie in second place three points behind and Glenn King took third with 31.Colin James birdied C2 to take the ‘2’s pot in the second division while a rollover ensued to the Emerald in division 1.Wednesday, June 5, The Emerald – StablefordYet again there was heavy rain overnight here in Jomtien and bursts of showers early morning and there were seven cancellations, so only 5 groups made the trip.  There were a few slight showers before we teed off but we went out on time.A cut of 8-17 today in division 1 and Jerry Sweetnam returned a score of 36 to take first place ahead of Curtis Hessler the Welsh wizard in second one point behind, and Terry Madsen was third after beating Pete Sumner 17/17 and 11/11 and 6/4 on count back on the last three holes, both on 31.Miss Nut, now playing off the white tees with a handicap of 23, returned her best score for many months to win division 2 with 36 points.  Neil gamble came in second, beating Lee Casey on a 17/15 back nine count back after they both scored 33 points.Miss Nut.There were no ‘2’s today so a rollover in both divisions to Treasure Hills on Monday.It was also time to say Bon Voyage to Pete Sumner and his lovely wife; we will all see you in three months.Friday, June 7, Eastern Star – Rainbow StablefordEvery couple of months we have a fun game courtesy of the rollover kitty.  Today was a two divisional comp with each player selecting six red, six white and six blues to tee off from.  This is a game of logic for the individual player and some of the remarks afterwards were, “I played all the par threes off the reds because I had a better chance of winning nearest the pins,” or “I played all the par threes off the blues because I can hit my driver straighter than a medium iron shot,” etc. and this went on and on with many other interesting ideas and solutions.There were seven groups out with the cut at 5-17 in division 1 and Ted Gardner won that flight with 36 points.  Lindsay Phillips came in second three points behind Ted and Martin Grimoldby took third with 32, beating Marty Rock on a 12/10 back six count back.Thirty-six was also the winning score in division 2 for Iain Walsh while the organiser claimed second on 35 after some remarkable tee shots never been seen before, and Pepo Frick was third with 32 points.Everybody enjoyed the format, it made a nice change and the weather was brilliant today.  It was also great to see Harry Riley back in the fold.Near pins went to Paul Butler (2), Jerry Sweetnam, Neil Gamble, Ian Hart, Harry Riley and Burnie Sinclair.Other technical prizes were claimed by Martin Grimoldby and Ian Hart (Nearest pin in two shots #Hole 2), Ted Gardner and Harry Riley (Nearest pin in three shots #Hole 8), Lindsay Phillips and Colin James (Straightest Drives #Hole 9), Martin Grimoldby and Neil Gamble (Nearest pin in two shots #Hole 12), and Ted Gardner and Rod Howett (Nearest pin in three shots #Hole 16).There were no ‘2’s in the top flight but Glyn Evans birdied both the 13th and 17th with 8ft and 25ft putts respectively to clean up the pot in division 2 (never been seen before and probably never will again!) Jomtien golf with the IPGCMonday, June 3, Pattana – StablefordThe wet season is here again and as we drove up the 331 it did not look promising, with some very dark and rolling clouds as we approached the course.  It was deserted here and with the A course shut we were allocated the B and C nines today.  It was still very gloomy as we teed off and this stayed the same for the next nine holes with a few spots of rain.   No problems so far but the thunder and lightning started as the last group was halfway down the 10th fairway and the marshall called them in to a safe place and also all the groups in front had been taken off course as well.Jerry Sweetnam.last_img read more

Atletico lose to Villarreal and miss the chance to move level with Barcelona

first_imgAtletico Madrid lost 1-0 at home to Villarreal on Sunday and missed the chance to move level on points with Barcelona in second place in la Liga. 14/12/2014 It completed the perfect weekend for Real Madrid, who having beaten Almeria on Friday night have now seen their two nearest rivals, Barça and Atletico, both drop points in the title race. However, Villarreal always posed a threat and it wasn’t a surprise when Vietto popped up in the 84th minute to seal the three points for the Yellow Submarine. Upd. at 21:11 Sport EN The 21-year-old spun Diego Godin just outside the penalty area and then smashed the ball past the helpless Miguel Angel Moya. CET It was Atletico’s first defeat at the Vicente Calderon since they lost 2-0 to Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey in February; it was their first there in the league since Barcelona beat them in May of 2013. Simeone will perhaps feel aggrieved to have lost the game, given Mario Mandzukic had what looked like a legitimate goal ruled out. Luciano Vietto, who made his debut for Argentine club Racing under Diego Simeone, scored the game’s only goal in the final 10 minutes.last_img read more
