9 Jul 2013 European championship opens with spectacular play England are lying fourth after first round of the European Ladies’ Team Championship, which opened today with spectacular golf at Fulford, York.Brilliant sunshine, a superb course and Europe’s top women amateurs combined to produce a host of low scores which delighted the crowds of spectatorsThe overall lead is held by Denmark, whose young team produced scores including a six-under 66, 68 and 69 to give them an 11-under par total for the day. “It was really fun to start out in that way,” said team captain Lene Kring Lorentzen. Second-placed Spain had two players with rounds in the 60s, while the Netherlands, in third place, had two players with sub-par scores.The day’s low scorers included England’s Bronte Law who shot three-under par 69 – as she enjoyed her return to competitive stroke play after taking her A level exams. Her aim was a steady start and she achieved that comfortably with a level par score on the front nine, before she hit top gear to come home in three-under.It could have been even better, but for a double-bogey on 16 which included a pushed drive and a penalty drop. “That was a bit annoying because I was pretty much blemish free, but I kept my head and made par on 17 and finished with a birdie on 18,” said Bronte, from Bramhall (Image © Leaderboard Photography).“Overall, I’m pleased. I haven’t played stroke play for a while so it was really important for me to play well today. But it’s not about individuals this week, it’s about getting the best score for the team.”Her round contributed to a team total of four-over for the first round. The five best scores from six counted and included level par from Meghan MacLaren (Wellingborough, pictured left) and Hayley Davis (Ferndown, pictured below ). British champion Georgia Hall (Remedy Oak) shot 75 after a triple-bogey eight on the last, while Lauren Taylor (Woburn) and Sarah-Jane Boyd (Truro) both returned 76.Meghan – making her debut at this level – got below par after 12 holes, but dropped a shot on the 15th. “I’m pleased overall, although it would have been nice to get under par and I missed a couple of chances,” she said. “But I kept it together, had a couple of good par saves and hopefully this will help us into a reasonable position.”Hayley finished strongly with two birdies in the last three holes to secure her score after an up and down round, which included just seven pars. “I didn’t get off to a quick start but I birdied 10, after I hit it to 3ft. That was my first really good shot and after that I played really solid,” she remarked.Tomorrow’s second qualifying round will determine the teams’ final positions for the match play, which starts on Thursday. The top eight will go in to the championship flight and contest the medals while the others will play for place.England captain Emma Brown is looking forward to building on today’s scores. “We’ve had some tidy scores – and some which could have been better. We’ve made a lot of birdies but we’ve also made some silly mistakes on holes which we know how to play better. So we’ll be looking at those decisions and how to eradicate the double bogeys as part of the preparation for tomorrow,” she said.Tomorrow’s England tee-times are:9.10am Meghan MacLaren9.40am Sarah-Jane Boyd10.10am Hayley Davis12.40pm Lauren Taylor1.10pm Bronte Law1.40pm Georgia Hall.Leading placings after round one:-11 Denmark-6 Spain+3 Netherlands+4 England+5 Sweden+7 Finland+11 France, IrelandAdmission is free and spectators are very welcome.
Chris Carter, far left, Perry Team, and Jonathan Dwyer 2nd from far right (Courier Photos/Rossano Paul Stewart) In these days of bling and look at me, me, me it is encouraging to see young successful professional athletes early on who care about those in the community who are far less fortunate. On this night Chris Carter spoke eloquently about how the partnership to encourage and influence young inner-city athletes came about. “Me and John got together mainly because we both had the same agent. We spend a lot of time together during the season and the off season. It seemed like a real good idea to give back to the community. There seemed to be a lot of kids in Pittsburgh that needed some guidance. The more that I was out here I started to notice the number of bright kids that needed help and I thought; why not? The reason that we chose Perry was that Mike Marchinsky was one of the team’s [Steelers] managers. He’s been telling us a lot about them, the players, the coaches and the really good staff there. A lot of these kids have good heads on their shoulders. All they need is a little guidance. They kind of remind me of a little bit of myself when I was their age. There were not many programs like this when I was young. Growing up in L.A. I didn’t have an opportunity to meet any professional athletes. I didn’t meet anyone from the NFL until I was in college.” Perry Head Coach Bill Gallagher and Mike Marchinsky, Steelers Youth Football/Marketing Manager Perry placekicker Cornelio Coates When one generally thinks of Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer, the visual usually consists of him busting through the line of scrimmage on a successful running play. When outside linebacker Chris Carter comes to mind that usually means that he will be chasing down an opposing running back from behind or sending an unsuspecting quarterback to an unscheduled visit to the “bone” doctor. However there is more to these two young Pittsburgh Steelers standouts than meets the eye. Recently Dwyer & Carter took time out of their hectic schedules to take a few student/athletes from Perry Traditional Academy’s football team to a sit down dinner at Capital Grille in Pittsburgh. The outing was complete with luxury transportation to and from the restaurant, a four course meal, and a mentoring session with two of their favorite Steelers players. Jonathan and Chris joined together on a mission of rewarding the team for their achievements on and off the field, while encouraging the young men to excel in all areas of their lives. At that very moment the servers at the Capital Grille served the young athletes some of the largest King Crab legs that I have ever seen. Also at that time, they informed the kids of the various steak and chicken combinations available to them to delight almost every gastronomical fantasy within the arsenal of their imaginations. Mike Marchinsky looked around the room and remarked that; “This is such a good event for the kids and can be a motivator for them to do great things”Perry placekicker Cornelio Coates was probably the most unlikely participant because Coates doesn’t even go to Perry and became the team’s kicker only a week before the city championship game. He kicked a 27-yard field goal in overtime to give Perry the 9-6 victory against University Prep at Cupples.Perry Head Coach Bill Gallagher also seemed a bit surprised at how the game ended saying; “over the course of the season, we were probably 3 of 50 in extra points so [I wasn’t really] confident in the outcome.”It was a great evening for all who attended. It also gave everyone a good feeling to see a couple of young gifted professional athletes less concerned about making or preventing a third down on the gridiron but instead chose to focus on mentoring and guiding the possible leaders of the future. On this night Jonathan Dwyer and Chris Carter were helping those far less fortunate than them; “move the chains in life.”
The April 16 shooting rampage at Virginia Tech University, as well as a gun scare at Bonita High School in La Verne on Friday and similar incidents across the nation have people wondering what can be done to prevent school violence. Many officials say that there is already an effective program in place to safely and anonymously report troubling or even criminal behavior around schools and communities before a tragedy occurs. WeTip, a nonprofit group operating continuously since 1972, has operators standing by 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at its Rancho Cucamonga call center. Tips received by WeTip officers and passed on to law enforcement have helped solve more than 15,000 crimes in the past 30 years. The Covina-Valley Unified School District has been part of WeTip’s school safety program for 12 years, said Marsha Evers, the district’s supervisor for student welfare and attendance. “There are countless cases where WeTip has gotten information on a weapon or a threat, where a student was going to hurt another student,” Aguilar said. “You don’t hear about them in the news so much because we were able to intercede and get to the root of the problem in time.” WeTip, which serves thousands of schools in California alone, never asks for callers’ names, Aguilar said. Instead, they are given identification numbers with which they can call back and add to their original tips. If their tip leads to the solving of a crime, a $1,000 reward is offered. Tipsters are given a code name and can pick up their reward at the post office of their choice, using the assumed name. All tips are passed on to police and schools, Aguilar said. “We would rather err on the side of caution and talk to a principal or school resource officer,” she said. “We do not determine what is good or bad information; we send it to the authorities and let them deal with it.” Covina police Chief Kim Raney, whose department is a WeTip member along with its counterparts in Arcadia, Pico Rivera and Pomona, among others, says the service has proven invaluable. “Anything that comes through is evaluated, especially school safety issues,” said Raney, noting that WeTip information has led to the solving of violent and drug-related crimes in the area. “People on Web sites like MySpace and Facebook might see some disturbing postings, and we encourage them to relate that information to WeTip so that potential threats can be identified before an event occurs.” Covina Councilman Walt Allen III, who serves as vice president of the WeTip board, said membership is well-worth the cost, which is determined based on population. “We are constantly trying to raise money, because even entities that are not members get information,” Allen said. Allen added that the Virginia Tech massacre serves as a grim reminder of the importance of programs like WeTip. “It is an extremely tragic way to make people aware of the need for an anonymous tipline, which helps ferret out potentially dangerous threats to our communities, schools or individuals,” he said. “I hope this awful tragedy gets the word out that there is an 800 number to call to provide information to law enforcement that could probably prevent a tragedy.” To make an anonymous tip to WeTip, visit www.wetip.com or call (800) 782-7463.

You’re all set! “We hope that our students feel confident enough to come to our administrators if they feel there is a problem, but we are not naive and know that is not always the case,” Evers said. “So if they overheard something from another student and are afraid to come forward, we would want them to use WeTip.” Evers said WeTip fax and e-mail bulletins received by the school and the Covina Police Department have led to solving, and even prevention, of crimes around district schools. “They have mostly involved property damage, potential drug sales, that kind of thing,” said Evers, adding that WeTip membership is paid by the city and does not cost the district a dime. “Nothing in the realm or homicide or attempted homicides.” That is not to say that the program has not saved lives, said WeTip CEO Susan Aguilar. “Last June in Victorville some kids were going to go to a graduation with plans to kill some members of the school’s sports teams,” Aguilar said. It was one of three gun-related graduation incidents last June in New York, Pennsylvania and Southern California that WeTip helped prevent, she said.

Rewind to almost 12 months ago, the setting was C.Ex Coffs International Stadium and it was finals day of the 2015 Touch World Cup. The rivalry between the Australian and New Zealand Mixed Open teams is one of the most competitive in the sport. Not a lot separates the two teams and the World Cup final didnâ€™t disappoint. The round game the day prior saw Australia take out the match by two touchdowns, 7-5, but as we all know, anything can happen in a World Cup final. New Zealand got out of the blocks firing, with Mackenzie Haugh scoring his sideâ€™s first touchdown in the opening set of the game. Australiaâ€™s Jayden Benbow scored before Elin Mortimerâ€™s first touchdown put Australia up by one touchdown.The incredible stepping of New Zealandâ€™s Phoenix Hunapo was on display soon after, tearing up the middle of the field for Jeremy Locke to score, and when Tiwi Davies scored the Kiwiâ€™s lead 3-2. Dylan Thompson levelled the game at 3-all for Australia before a second touchdown to Davies for the half saw the Kiwis lead 4-3 at half-time. New Zealand further extended their lead early in the second half, when Hunapo and Locke again combined for Lockeâ€™s second touchdown, giving New Zealand their biggest lead of the game, 5-3. Cue an Australian comeback.Dylan Thompson set up Cameron Nicholls to score for Australia to trail by one and when New Zealand were reduced to five players through a Period of Time, Australia pounced. Thompson was again in the thick of the action soon after, with Scott Bundy scoring to level the game at 5-all. From there it was one way traffic, with Thompson scoring his second touchdown of the game, before an acting half run from Nicholls saw Bundy score his second half double. Mortimer made it three Australian doubles when she scored in the corner in the dying seconds, to give Australia a three touchdown win, 8-5. Outgoing Australian captain, Kylie Hilder, could not hide her excitement. â€œWords canâ€™t explain. It was a tough match, we were always behind there but the game plan was to come out on top and we did. We finished so strong,â€ Hilder said.â€œWe had to get in the fight and stay in the fight. We knew we could come out at the other end. It was an awesome effort from our guys and it just shows you the character of the team.â€2015 World Cup Mixed Open Final AUSTRALIA 8 (Elin Mortimer 2, Scott Bundy 2, Dylan Thompson 2, Cameron Nicholls, Jayden Benbow touchdowns) defeated NEW ZEALAND 5 (Tiwi Davies 2, Jeremy Locke 2, Mackenzie Haugh touchdowns).Players of the final: Dylan Thompson (Australia) and Tina Ashworth (New Zealand).Stay tuned to the Touch Football Australia website and social media channels in the lead up to the 2016 Trans Tasman Series for all of the latest news and information: Website â€“ www.touchfootball.com.auFacebook â€“ www.facebook.com/touchfootballaustraliaTwitter â€“ www.twitter.com/touchfootyaus (#transtasman2016)Instagram â€“ www.instagram.com/touchfootballaustralia (#transtasman2016)YouTube â€“ www.youtube.com/touchfootballaus Related LinksLast time they met – Mixed
