The St. Louis Cardinals 7th Grade Volleyball team came short against the Greendale Tigers 25-6, 25-7. The Cardinals struggled with passing the ball from the strong serves from Greendale until the end of the 2nd set. At that point, they started pushing themselves to move on the court so they could set up the offense a few times. Cora Roth had the only 2 hits of the game. Roth also led the Cardinals with 3 points followed by Lucy Abplanalp and Kalli Obermeyer with 1 point each.The 8th Grade Lady Cardinal St. Louis Volleyball team started off strong in the first set by taking the lead until the Greendale Tigers went on a 6 point run.

Press Association He then left the track by helicopter for Worcester’s evening meeting, although his first mount Old Pals Act could only manage second in the Tonbrie Construction Handicap Chase. Further disappointment followed when My Nosy Rosy, after travelling well in the Green Lighting D-Lux Led Dimmable Downlights Mares’ Maiden Hurdle, faded into third. McCoy tried to make all on Crannaghmore Boy in the Lifeboats Saving Lives At Sea Selling Handicap Hurdle, but the writing was on the wall on the turn for home and he weakened out of contention. Pipe believes his words inspired McCoy to home in on his career tally of winners. The Nicholshayne training great threw out a challenge when he retired. At that time, McCoy was some 1,500 down and it would have seemed by many to be a safe bet to bait him by suggesting he would never get to a total that was not even on the horizon. But Pipe, knowing only too well that breaking records comes as second nature to the never-say-die Ulsterman, had a feeling his former stable jockey would be hooked into aiming at a target that would have looked out of reach to everyone else. “Years ago when I retired I said he wouldn’t beat me, which I hope spurred him on. I’m sure it did. We’ve had some great banter about it. He kept on texting me all the time and saying he was getting closer. It was marvellous this season that he had his fastest-ever 50,” he told Press Association Sport. “He had a bad tumble at Worcester just recently yet came back in the next race and rode a winner despite being in all that pain. Then he was back at Market Rasen a few days later and had a winner. “He’s an inspiration to all the jockeys and to everyone in racing. He’s marvellous for our sport and it’s just great we’ve got someone like him. All of us in racing are so proud of him for doing it.” “I made hard work of it. I was a bit conscious we went steady. Down the back I thought I’d better get him a bit closer because he’s not a quick horse,” McCoy told At The Races. “Then he just started to wander about and have a look and was probably going to win over the last but decided to stop and it was only when a horse came by him that I got him going again in time thankfully. It’s nice that he won. “I’ve had a few steering jobs and I was hoping one would win and this horse was appropriately named. It’s nice that it’s one of Jonjo’s and one of JP’s. “The thing with me and Mr Pipe is that it’s just a personal thing. We’ve a lot of friends and there’s been a lot of banter for a long time. I wouldn’t be surprised if he went to Newmarket for a trainer’s course. I hope I’ve driven him mad!” On The Record was McCoy’s second ride of the afternoon at the Staffordshire track after Zip Wire had failed to trouble the judge in the 32Red Casino Novices’ Hurdle won by Nathans Pride. McCoy recorded his fastest-ever 50 last month at Worcester and the 1 9-times champion is pushing towards 300 winners this season having recorded 289 victories in 2001-2. He has been targeting Pipe’s all-time tally since chalking up his 4,000th winner at Towcester in November. The record-breaking rider was formerly Pipe’s stable jockey but has been retained by McManus since 2004. Pipe was champion trainer 15 times until he handed over the reins to his son David in April 2006. The latter tweeted: “Could there be a more appropriate way for @AP_McCoy to join my father in the 4191 club than success aboard On The Record?!” McCoy could not overtake Pipe with his last ride at Uttoxeter as his mount Dashing Over faded out of contention behind Bumble Bay (12-1) in the £10 Free Bet At 32RedSport.com Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race. Tony McCoy equalled Martin Pipe’s career tally of 4,191 winners with a typically powerful ride to get On The Record home first at Uttoxeter. The record-breaking jump jockey drove the evens favourite over the line first in the 32Red On The App Store Handicap Hurdle, but only after a tough tussle with Bangkok Pete. The 25-1 outsider pushed On the Record all the way and the race could have gone either way from the final flight. However, McCoy got the Jonjo O’Neill-trained six-year-old, owned by his boss JP McManus, home by a neck much to the delight of his supporters.
“We have got a bit of time but over the next two weeks we need to take that into consideration, bearing in mind the transfer window will close.” Martinez has played down reports that Barkley, 20, could be out for five months but the club remain uncertain of the length of his lay-off. He said: “He is physically such a strong boy that he has recovered a lot quicker than we expected in the first few days. “Obviously the knee is still a little bit swollen so it is too early to know how long it is going to be. “I am sure Ross Barkley will take the least time possible but that could be anything between seven, eight, nine weeks going all the way to a longer period.” Martinez, speaking at a press conference to preview Arsenal’s visit to Goodison Park on Saturday, did not directly answer a question relating to reports of interest in former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o. He said: “There are going to be many links – there is still a long time in the window.” Press Association Everton boss Roberto Martinez will use upcoming games against Arsenal and Chelsea to gauge whether he needs to sign more players. The Spaniard said: “I am pleased we are playing two of the best teams in the league now in Arsenal and Chelsea before the window closes. “That is going to give us a real opportunity to see if we have to do anything or help the players we have at the club. “But at the moment I am very pleased with the players we have and the squad we have. “Now it is just a matter of pushing it and trying to get the best out of what we have got.” Injuries could also have an influence. Everton last week lost England midfielder Ross Barkley for an indefinite period after suffering medial ligament damage in training. Midfielder Bryan Oviedo and striker Arouna Kone are also on the sidelines, fighting their way back to fitness from a broken leg and knee injury respectively, and it still remains uncertain when they will be back in contention. Martinez said: “Bryan and Arouna are progressing really well and can be involved in group sessions. “But from that to playing in a competitive game is a gap that will be very difficult for us to answer, unless we get a lot of attention on day-to-day work. Martinez, who guided the Toffees to fifth in the Barclays Premier League last season, wants to measure the strength of his side against the title challengers. Everton have already had a successful summer in the transfer market, with Gareth Barry, Romelu Lukaku, Muhamed Besic and Christian Atsu among their recruits, but Martinez is not ruling out further arrivals this month.
Spurs sit fourth at the halfway stage and just four points behind leaders Arsenal, having lost only twice in the league so far. Pochettino’s side can close that gap with a win at Everton on Sunday but the Argentine insists the next 10 matches will be pivotal in the race at the top. Mauricio Pochettino believes Tottenham’s next 10 games could make or break his side’s chances of winning the title this season. Tottenham currently boast the best defence in the league and central to that success has been the form of Eric Dier. Dier spent 18 months on loan at Everton as a teenager but only played for the club’s youth teams, before returning to Sporting Lisbon and moving to Spurs in August 2014. “We are very pleased because he has started to play in a position that was his real position,” Pochettino said. “When we decided he should start to play as a holding midfielder it’s because we saw he had the qualities to play in that position. “He got into the national team as a holding midfielder. Maybe in the future his best position is centre midfield or maybe it’s centre defence or full-back. “But he is very young and very comfortable in the position he is playing. “If we analyse him, today he is one of the best holding midfielders in the Premier League.” Dier has formed a rock-solid base in front of centre-backs Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, and on Sunday the trio will be tasked with stopping Everton’s Romelu Lukaku, who has 11 goals in his last 10 matches. Alderweireld has been one of Tottenham’s star performers so far this season and Pochettino paid tribute to the Belgian’s impact on the team. “I think it’s obvious Alderweireld after 19 games is one of the best defenders,” Pochettino said. “He does a very good performance and shows maturity and experience. Great boy, great man and we are very happy him. “I think they (Alderweireld and Vertonghen) are good partners. For me it is important how we work as a team to try defend. Our keeper is key as well. “We need a very good balance. But it is true Toby has made a very good impact in the team.” In that time, Tottenham play Leicester and Arsenal at home as well as facing trips to Crystal Palace, Manchester City and West Ham. “We need to arrive in the last 10 games with the possibility to fight for the objectives,” Pochettino said. “The next nine, 10 games will maybe mark the possibility of how we can finish in the table.” Arsenal and Manchester City remain favourites to be crowned champions in May but Tottenham’s form – they are chasing their fourth consecutive win this weekend – has led many to suggest they can mount a sustained challenge. For all the hype, however, Pochettino is adamant his players are keeping their feet firmly on the ground. “The good thing is we don’t speak too much but we work very hard and I think it is most important how we behave inside,” Pochettino said. “We are very quiet. We believe in ourselves. We are very confident and in football a lot can happen. We believe. “The only way we cannot achieve all that we can in football is if we stop working hard.” Press Association
Sydney: For the first time in the world, women footballers in Australia’s national team will be paid the same as their male counterparts.The Football Federation Australia (FFA) and Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) formally announced the deal on Wednesday that closes the pay gap between women’s players from the national side, the Matildas, earning an equal salary to their counterparts in men’s team, the Socceroos.The new four-year deal, known as the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), will see Matildas receive a 24 percent share of an agreed aggregate of national team generated revenues in 2019-20, rising by one percent each year of the four-year deal.While historically the Socceroos have been allocated a greater share of commercial revenues, the new terms will be the same for both teams.Also included in the deal, the Matildas will now fly business class for international travel – the same standard afforded to the men – and the amount of World Cup prize money allocated to the players will increase from 30 to 40 percent, jumping to 50 percent if they reach the knockout stage of the competition.“Football is the game for everyone, and this new CBA is another huge step toward ensuring that we live the values of equality, inclusivity, and opportunity,” FFA Chairman, Chris Nikou said.“For the first time, player remuneration will be directly tied to the revenues generated by our National Teams – this will create a sustainable financial model that incentivizes players and FFA to collaborate and grow the commercial pie together.”“It means whether you are a male or female, the value football places on your jersey is no different. We are proud to break this new ground in Australian and world sport,” he added.“This agreement is the product of generations of Matildas and their supporters advocating for real change,” Former Matilda and FFA Head of Game Development, Sarah Walsh said.“This moment belongs to all of them as well,” she added.The allocation of any prospective World Cup prize money to players has been increased.

Follow Yasmeen on Twitter @YasmeenSerhan Editor’s note: This post has been corrected to reflect the change in the memorial location and that Kyaw is survived by his parents, an older brother and an older sister. An earlier version said Kyaw is survived by his parents and his older brother. The Daily Trojan regrets the error. Those who knew Thu Yain “Roy” Kyaw remember him for his leadership and unwavering friendship. Kyaw, a sophomore from Singapore, was found dead in his apartment Sunday night. He was 22 years old.A student in the Marshall School of Business, Roy came to USC last year to study business administration after spending two years serving in the Singaporean Armed Forces.His brother, Arkar Kyaw, posted a public message to Facebook encouraging those who knew Roy to stay strong and celebrate the time they had with him.“I know it’s a hard time for everyone especially because of how sudden these news are. However, I just want everyone to remember that accidents do happen, and death is as inevitable a part of life as life itself — his departure just came a lot sooner than we expected. He has gone on to a better place now and is resting in peace smiling, because all of you have made his life up to this point worth living! Thank you so much for that,” Arkar wrote.Kevin Cai, a junior majoring in business administration, said he met Roy through the business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi. Cai said Kyaw was not only a leader in the fraternity, but the backbone of their pledge class.“He was older, but he was super humble,” Cai said. “Within the first week, he became the stabilizing force of our pledge class.”Daniel Yang, Roy’s friend and a member of DSP, said he never forgot his humble beginnings.“He knew his parents sacrificed so much for him to be here at USC and get an American education,” Yang said. “His goal was to eventually go back to Myanmar and really give back to his family and his country.”Though Roy was a business student, he used opportunities given to him to explore other classes outside of the Marshall School. International Relations Professor Steven Lamy said he got to know Roy through his sophomore seminar.During a dinner with a class speaker last week, Lamy said Roy discussed his future aspirations and his native Myanmar.“He wanted to find a position in economic consulting or investment and he wanted eventually to return to Burma, where his family was from, and help it succeed in the global economy,” Lamy said in an email to the Daily Trojan. “Roy wanted to be successful, but he also wanted to make a difference.”Lamy said Roy’s commitment and passion for learning will be missed by all who knew him.“In my class, he was always in the front row taking notes and listening and asking questions,” Lamy said. “He did not spend time on his computer checking emails. He valued the insights he learned from every speaker.”As an international student, Yang said Roy appreciated every opportunity offered at USC.“He didn’t take an education from ’SC for granted,” Yang said. “He completely understood what getting an American education at USC meant.”Regardless of Roy’s future plans, Cai said there was no doubt that he would have been successful.“Everyone knew he was going to succeed,” Cai said. “He was aspiring to go a million different ways, and I’m sure he could have done any of them.”For those who knew him well, the unconfirmed reports of alcohol poisoning as Kyaw’s cause of death were difficult to hear.“He would be the one to make sure that everyone was OK,” Cai said. “He would always be the one to offer to be [the designated driver], so to hear that it’s possible it’s alcohol poisoning is just really hard to believe.”Cai recalled how he and Roy had plans to meet for dinner and Cai considered canceling. Though he was busy, Cai said he was glad he didn’t.“I actually grabbed Burmese food with him and some of our pledge brothers,” Cai said. “This tragedy is just a reminder to be a man of your word. If you mean it when you say, ‘Hey, I miss you’ or ‘Hey, I want to hang out,’ you have to do it.”Yang said the way Roy led his life would be his ultimate legacy.“Roy taught me to make the most out of every moment — not every day, but every single moment,” Yang said. “Now that he’s gone, the lesson never really hit me until now.”Roy is survived by parents, an older brother and an older sister.A memorial service for Roy is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. in Bovard Auditorium.
Change is on the horizon in college sports, as universities will have the option of paying athletes beginning in 2016.This comes after U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken ruled in favor of former UCLA basketball player Ed O’Bannon in his case against the NCAA in August. Once athletes’ college careers end, they could potentially be paid through a trust fund that is to be set up.The NCAA is currently appealing the decision issued against them by U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken in the Ed O’Bannon case. — Photo courtesy of Creative CommonsThere is no doubt this will have benefits for athletes. Finally, these student-athletes will get some compensation for all the money they bring into their respective universities and the NCAA, and be able to get through college without “going hungry”, as former Connecticut basketball guard said following the team’s National Championship victory.Nonetheless, this change could forever alter the landscape of college sports, especially college football. One of the reasons people love college football is because it’s not the same as the NFL, in part to the many traditions the sport evokes and because of the culture surrounding the many colleges programs, rather than just the individual.If you just take some time to watch the intro to “College Football Live”, you will hear and see fight songs, rowdy fans, and be able to observe the over-arching legacy of a college program.Many big-time players are able to become very famous rather quickly in college football; for instance, Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill was all over ESPN after throwing for over 400 yards against South Carolina in the first game of his collegiate career.Despite the great amount of attention those such as Kenny “Football” have received, a player can get in trouble for expressing his/her individuality. While NFL players, like Aaron Rodgers, are famous for touchdown dances or signature moves, a college player who celebrates or so much as unnecessarily dives into the end-zone can be penalized by the referees. This may seem unfair, but after all, it’s college football. But in the future with program’s potentially paying players, the thin line between an individual and the team may become blurry.Many players have already acted like they are entitled to certain privileges including former Aggie’s quarterback Johnny Manziel or last year’s Heisman trophy winner in Florida State QB Jameis Winston.What will happen when big-name players for big-name programs know that will be paid for their services regardless of the outcome of the game? It very well may become more difficult for some players to maintain their discipline and focus on the team when they know they will be getting paid potentially thousands of dollars.Another reason people love college football is to see Cinderella teams or underdogs upset the Goliath’s by wining big-time bowl games against big-name power five conference opponents like when Boise State beat Oklahoma in the 2007 Fiesta Bowl or when TCU beat Wisconsin in the 2011 Rose Bowl.Nevertheless, the powerhouse football programs may further distance themselves from the smaller ones with this recent court decision. Many highly-ranked recruits out of high school may start making their decisions based on which program will potentially pay them the most, and the Alabama’s, the USC’s and the Texas’s of the world will be able to offer them what they want, leaving the Boise State’s at an even greater recruiting disadvantage than they are at now.Paying college athletes is probably the right decision, but college football and its programs must be very careful in order to maintain their identities.
