Cazenovia winter sports season featured records, win streaks

first_imgThe first milestone came on Dec. 5, Lawson passing 1,000 career points during Cazenovia’s season-opening win over Madison. Over the course of the next 20 games, Lawson would continue to put up big numbers.All told, Lawson averaged 22.8 points and 13.0 rebounds per game. That included three different 20-20 efforts – 28 points and 20 rebounds in a Dec. 19 win over Westhill, 31 points and 24 rebounds in a Jan. 19 defeat to Utica-Notre Dame, and 39 points and 23 rebounds when Cazenovia defeated Jordan-Elbridge Feb. 4.By the time it was all done, Lawson had surpassed Helen Baroody’s total of 1,392 points and became the program’s all-time leading scorer, finishing at 1,490 for her career. Cazenovia would go 14-7 overall, dropping its first-round Section III Class B playoff game to Lowville. Editor’s Note: With high school sports on hold, we’ll take the opportunity to look back on what took place so far during the 2019-20 school year. This is a recap on winter sports at Cazenovia High School.Both on an individual and a team basis, the winter sports season at Cazenovia High School was filled with landmark efforts.It included the feats of senior girls basketball player Lindsey Lawson. Last summer, Lawson committed to Harvard University, and it was no secret that the Lakers would lean heavily on her skills in the paint to find success. One team at Cazenovia that did claim sectional honors was boys indoor track and field. All season long, the Lakers racked up titles against all kinds of competition, whether competing at Onondaga Community College’s SRC Arena or at Utica College’s Hutton Dome.Ultimately, Cazenovia would sweep post-season honors, first by racing to the top of the standings in the Onondaga High School League Division I championships Jan. 29 and, two weeks later, roaring to victory in the sectional Class B-2 meet.The honors didn’t stop there. Junior Slater DeLeon not only won the 300-meter dash and long jump at the sectional meet, he qualified for the March 7 state championships on Staten Island, where he broke the school record in the 300.Sectional honors also went to Joe Spires in the 55-meter dash, Andrew Kent in the 600-meter run, Dalton Sevier in the high jump, Gordan Wester in the weight throw and the 4×200 relay team of Spires, Connor Wilson, Andrew Lee and Charles Kubenic, with Jared Smith second in the 1,000-meter run.It was also a strong season for Cazenovia girls indoor track, who constantly beat out most of its small-school competition and, ultimately, finished third in the sectional Class B-2 meet. Chloe Smith was the sectional B-2 champion in the long jump, going 16 feet 4 1/2 inches, while Melanie Michael finished second in the 55 hurdles and Savannah Johnson took second in the 300.DeLeon was not the only Cazenovia athlete that made it to a state championship event.Sophomore Quinn Smith swam with the Fayetteville-Manlius boys team and would break out in a big way during the sectional Class A championships Feb. 13 at Nottingham High School, winning the 500-yard freestyle in four minutes, 48.77 seconds, improving upon his best time of the season by nearly 17 seconds.In both the 500 freestyle and the 200 individual medley (where he swam to a time of 1:57.92), Smith was able to qualify for the March 6-7 state meet on Long Island, where he would fare better in the 200 IM, finishing 38th overall.It had the makings of a special season for Cazenovia’s boys basketball team as it roared out to a 6-0 start, getting victories over the likes of Solvay, an eventual sectional finalist.Led by seniors Ryan Romagnoli and sophomore Alex Moesch, the Lakers went to 11-3 eventually before a five-game skid bridging January and February.Ultimately, Cazenovia did recover to claim a tense 62-57 win over long-time nemesis Westhill in the opening round of the sectional playoffs, only to fall in the quarterfinals 70-47 to top seed and eventual champion Lowville, who stood atop the state rankings before the COVID-19 outbreak thwarted the Red Raiders’ state championship dreams.In wrestling, Cazenovia who was on a combined team with Fabius-Pompey, put up a strong third-place finish at the sectional Class C tournament Feb. 8, with Lucca Ferreira taking the 132-pound title and Kevin Valentine prevailing at 170 pounds as John Frega finsihed second at 220 pounds. Valentine went on to finish fifth in the sectional Division II meet a week later.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story center_img Tags: Cazenoviawinter sportslast_img read more

Coliseum: A reminder of LA’s vibrant history

first_imgThe Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum is the only facility in the world to have hosted two Olympic games, two Super Bowls, a World Series, a Papal mass and three U.S. presidential visits. It is set to host its third Summer Olympics in 2028. (Emily Smith/Daily Trojan)For over 100 years, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum has stood as one of  the city’s greatest symbols of sports culture and history. Adding to its historicity, the building is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Since it opened its doors on May 1, 1923, the Coliseum has played many roles throughout the years, serving as home to much more than just the Trojans football team.The Coliseum is currently under renovation to prepare for more USC football and the 2028 Summer Olympics. For some, it may be hard to accept the changes coming down the pipeline for the historic venue, including the reduction of the number of seating and expansion of the box suites and press area. The renovations come with a $270 million price tag, as well as the renaming of the historic building as the United Airlines Memorial Coliseum. Nonetheless, it is likely that most fans will continue to call the stadium what they have called it for almost a century: “The Coliseum.” “When construction is complete, our home field will be the best it’s ever been, for our players, our students and our Trojan fans, and that’s thanks to the contributions from founders and alumni and partners like United Airlines,” said USC Athletic Director Lynn Swann.When it was opened, the Coliseum was dedicated to the Los Angeles veterans of World War I and rededicated to all veterans in 1968. Five months after opening, the first football game was hosted in the Coliseum on Oct. 6, 1923, featuring a showdown between Pomona College and USC. The Trojans prevailed with a score of 23-7 in front of a crowd of nearly 13,000 people. Countless other historical matchups have taken place in the Coliseum. In 1946, Kenny Washington and the Los Angeles Rams broke the NFL color barrier in a 20-10 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. Just three years later, the Coliseum hosted the first contest between the NFL and AFL champions, now known as the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl returned to the Coliseum in 1973 when the Miami Dolphins bested the Washington Redskins 14-7, making the Dolphins the first NFL team to achieve an undefeated season and take home the national title — a record that holds to this day.On an international scale, the Coliseum has been renowned for hosting not one, but two Olympic Games in 1932 and 1984, and plans are already underway for its third in 2028. Many of the stadium’s most iconic features were added to the building for the 1932 Olympics, including the Olympic rings over the entrance and the Olympic Torch, which is now lit during the fourth quarter of USC football games and during the Olympics no matter where they are being held. Additionally, the seating capacity was raised from what was already one of the largest stadiums in the United States at 75,144 seats to 105,574 seats for the 1932 Games. The famed bronze athlete statues were erected for the 1984 games. The Coliseum has also hosted countless events in various forms of entertainment. Religious personality Billy Graham’s Southern California Crusade drew in the Coliseum’s all time attendance record of 134,254 people on Sept. 8, 1963. In 1985, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band played four nights in a row at the venue. Eight of the songs performed throughout the stint were recorded and immortalized on their 1986 box set “Live 1975-85” as well as in the “War” music video. The Coliseum has also hosted more recent musical affairs. The world famous music festival Electric Daisy Carnival was held in the Coliseum from 2008 to 2010 before making its permanent home in Las Vegas. The stadium was also used as a speaking venue for former South African president Nelson Mandela in 1990, and the site of John F. Kennedy’s nomination acceptance speech for president at the 1960 Democratic National Convention.It is easy to tell why Southern Californians have a special affinity for the massive sports arena in USC’s backyard. It has been around for nearly every visitor’s lifetime. For USC students in particular, this stadium is the backdrop for many Trojans’ greatest memories.last_img read more

Fans await Otumfuo

first_imgFollowing the resignation of Executive Chairman, Dr. K. K. Sarpong and all the commentaries that have dominated the airwaves across the country, Kotoko supporters are patiently looking forward to communication from the Manhyia Palace regarding the leadership of the club.Dr. Sarpong gave indications of quitting the Kotoko top post last week Friday barely 24hours after visiting the Manhyia Palace with the team to present trophies won this season to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.Dr. Sarpong’s resignation was thus seen as a big surprise. Earlier this week, International Relations Manager, Kwame Baah-Nuakoh confirmed in radio interviews that the Chairman’s resignation letter has been delivered at the revered palace.“Dr. K. K. Sarpong’s resignation letter has been sent to Manhyia. I know that, before that, discussions had gone on between himself and other people who could deliver other messages.As custom demands, he has followed tradition to pass on the message to Manhyia and of course you will also need to follow up it formally with a letter. I have been informed that the letter has been delivered this morning” Kwame said on Asempa FM earlier this week.The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is Life Patron of the club. As the respectable figure who appointed Dr. Sarpong, the occupant of the Golden Stool remains the only person whose pronouncements will offer directions on what happens next. Speculation has been rife on when the Great King will come out on developments in the club with practically every media house, especially radio stations in Accra and Kumasi broadcasting their own version concerning the time the Manhyia Palace will say anything.Asantekotokosc.com cannot say anything definitive except to convey the feelings of the teeming supporters of the club many of who are patiently waiting for Otumfuo’s directives. A number of the fans who have been calling asantekotokosc.com’s office have been extremely concerned over events in the last few days.The good thing is that they are confident that regardless of the path things appear to have taken, the Owner and Life Patron of Kotoko as usual will provide the needed respite when anytime he comes out.For the records, Dr. K. K. Sarpong has been at the helm of affairs for three years seeing to some notable developments including two Premier League triumphs, massive sponsorship deals and major infrastructural projects.He was appointed in May 2010; taking over from the Alhaji Njee-led interim body which succeeded Sylvester Asare Owusu’s five-member management team.last_img read more
