OCHS Cross Country Teams Outrun Vineland

first_imgBy LESLEY GRAHAMFor the second straight week, the Ocean City High School cross country teams raced to victory, posting the top runners on both the boys and girls sides over visiting Vineland on Tuesday.Junior Owen Ritti and senior Erin Hanlon both recorded top times for Ocean City, with Ritti coming in at 16:33 and Hanlon at 21:14, respectively, for the 5K races. Both Ocean City teams were able to complete a perfect score, winning the dual meet against Vineland, 15-50.On the boys side, there was a difference in the order of finish this week compared to last, with freshman Matt Hoffman breaking into the top five, improving from his sixth place performance the last time out.On the girls side, Hanlon once again took the top spot for the Red Raiders, dropping 30 seconds off her time from last week. Hanlon was followed by fellow Red Raiders Vanessa Karayiannis, Frankie Ritzel, Avery Jackson and Marissa Vallese.Ocean City girls head coach Trish Henry mentioned how nice it is to have a mix of returners and new faces to complete the team this season, especially with how the newcomers are responding.“We continue to be happy with all the newcomers. They may lack a lot of race experience, but they are hanging in and getting better each time out,” Henry said after the race.Ritzel, Jackson and Vallese are all racing in their first varsity season for the Red Raiders.Tyler Greene (left) and Owen Ritti surge ahead on the home course. Ritti and Greene would finish 1-2 for the Red Raiders.The typical home course in Ocean City involves a start on the Boardwalk, a transition onto the beach, road racing and a finish at the track at the turf stadium. Due to Monday’s weather and the tides Tuesday, this week’s course did not include a beach section, allowing the runners to really push the pace on the flat road course.Ocean City boys head coach Matt Purdue was happy with his team’s effort against Vineland.“Both Owen and Tyler (Greene) ran under 17 minutes for a 5K, so that’s good for us, especially this point in the season,” Purdue said.In a typical cross country season, the schedule involves a number of larger format invitational meets, where the runners face some of the best competition throughout New Jersey and the tri-state area.But with the safety protocols and precautions taken this season due to COVID-19 concerns, the Red Raiders are having to change their game plan and mental approach.“The team is pushing each other – each guy is taking the opportunity to push themselves and their teammates,” Purdue said.Henry echoed those thoughts, reiterating to her runners, although the season may look different, there are constant opportunities to improve their performance.“You are racing the clock. And more importantly, your teammates can be your competitors and your motivators, making you the best you can be,” Henry said.The girls get underway at the start of the race on the Boardwalk. From left, Ocean City’s Vanessa Karayiannis, Avery Jackson, Erin Hanlon and Frankie Ritzel push the pace. last_img read more

Red Bank School Superintendent to Retire at End of Month

first_imgRED BANK – Superintendent of Public Schools Dr. Laura Morana has submitted notice to the school board that she will retire at the end of the month.Morana was in her eighth year with the district. Her last day will be Sept. 30.The timing of her retirement is unusual in that it is occurring at the start of the school year. Her announcement was not included on the board’s posted agenda.When asked about the timing, board President Ben Forest declined to comment calling it a “personnel matter.”He said Morana had informed the board prior to her public announcement.During Wednesday’s board meeting the board began setting up a strategy to replace Morana. “We are going as quickly as we can to find a replacement for Dr. Morana. In the meantime, we will be looking for an interim superintendent.”Forest said it is expected that the district will hire an interim superintendent from outside the district.“The board is pleased with the legacy and record that Dr. Morana has left us,” Forest said. “The board gave her an ovation last night.”Red Bank Mayor Pasquale Menna said he was “saddened to see Laura go. But at the same time I am extraordinarily grateful that she has been able to devote seven years of her life to Red Bank and in that time brought a level of excellence and accomplishment that had never been experienced by us in the past.“Dr. Morana raised the bar and challenged students, parents and guardians, teachers, administrators and staff to achieve new levels of excellence.  For that I am thankful,” Menna said..last_img read more

Replay system failed on game’s big stage

first_img The Rose Bowl replay system, like most of those used in college, differs from the NFL. Instead of challenges being brought by coaches, as in the NFL, plays are reviewed at the behest of officials in the replay booth above the press box. There are three men upstairs a replay official, an assistant and a technician who watch the television feed from ABC on monitors as well as the video board in the stadium. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The Rose Bowl used a replay system to review questionable calls for the first time Wednesday, but pardon USC if it wouldn’t mind putting the system under further review. The Trojans lost a turnover on one reversal, were deprived of a turnover on a play that was upheld, and then wondered who was asleep in the replay booth when a Texas touchdown wasn’t even reviewed. No wonder USC coach Pete Carroll chose to play without instant replay against Notre Dame. Texas was awarded an interception, correctly, by the Big Ten crew when a replay showed that safety Michael Griffin had indeed gotten a foot down inbounds in the end zone. center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson But the Trojans had a right to gripe moments later when a Texas touchdown by Selvin Young was not reviewed despite replays showing that quarterback Vince Young’s knee had touched down at the 12-yard line before he pitched the ball to Selvin Young. There was also question of whether the pitch, which occurred past the line of scrimmage, was a forward pass. The two plays came in the second quarter with USC leading 7-3. The replay the Trojans wanted overturned came in the fourth quarter, when Vince Young threw a pass over the middle to Jamaal Charles, who caught the ball with both feet on the ground a split second before he was hit. But he didn’t make “a football move” before he was hit and the ball knocked loose. Two officials hesitated before ruling the play an incomplete pass. After the play was reviewed upstairs the ruling on the field was upheld. In all, five plays were reviewed, including two that were upheld in favor of the Trojans: a 12-yard catch by Steve Smith and a 26-yard touchdown run by Reggie Bush in which he was determined to have stayed in bounds. last_img read more

Mandela’s Mvezo’s school dream realised

first_img20 January 2014 Madiba’s dream of a secondary school at his birthplace of Mvezo in the Eastern Cape was finally realised with the official opening of the Nelson Mandela School of Science and Technology on Friday. The R100-million school, built in partnership by German engineering company Siemens, the Mvezo Development Trust, the community of Mvezo and South Africa’s Department of Basic Education, will enable 700 learners from about 24 feeder primary schools to study engineering, science, technology and agriculture. Speaking at the opening of the school, President Jacob Zuma said, “Madiba had to travel far to obtain secondary education because there was no secondary school in this area. Siemens has ensured that the children of Mvezo receive a state-of-the-art science and technology school.” Zuma said Mandela was passionate about education and the plight of children, as they were the future of the country. “That is why he was always raising funds to build a school in the country, particularly among the most disadvantaged communities. This is a legacy that should be continued.” Although there was an improvement in the country’s matric results, particularly in maths and science in 2013, Zuma said there was still a long way to go to getting learners to take a real interest in the subjects. “Societies advance through science and technology, and our country should not be left behind. We should make science and technology a joy for our learners.” Zuma urged the school’s new learners to use the opportunity and build a bright future for themselves. “The Mandela School of Science and Technology must be a training ground for the leaders of tomorrow. We want you to produce leaders in various fields, in honour of the distinguished man after whom the school is named.” The school is part of the Accelerated School Infrastructure Delivery Initiative, an R8.2-billion public-private initiative which aims to eradicate the 496 “mud schools” in the country, and provide water and sanitation to 1 257 schools and electricity to 878 schools by March 2016.
