Krista Page had played field hockey at Catawba College and decided to make the sport a part of her adult life by accepting the head coaching position at Cocalico (Pa.) Senior High School 13 years ago.Her daughter Jordan, though, originally wanted no part of field hockey. So when her mother dragged her and the Cocalico team to a summer field hockey camp run by former Old Dominion head coach Beth Anders, the younger Page was unwilling to leave the bleachers.But once Jordan built up the courage to join everyone on the pitch, Krista Page immediately knew which sport her daughter should pursue.“She really wasn’t sure what she wanted to do. It was either volleyball or cheerleading, and we decided to do field hockey,” Jordan’s mother said with a laugh. “She just started playing in the seventh grade and found some success in it, and here we are.”Now a junior, Jordan Page has established her role as a defensive anchor for the No. 3 Orange (14-2, 3-2 Atlantic Coast). She has started every game this season, tallying seven assists and shutting down a number of skilled opponents along the way.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHowever, Syracuse is more than just a school or a team for Page. It’s her second home.“I really enjoy Syracuse, the atmosphere here, the coaching staff here and what the program represents,” she said. “Syracuse was the best fit for me.”It was the final destination of a journey that began in 2005.It all started during the summer of that year when Page finally picked up a stick at Beth Anders’ camp and trotted onto the field, not thinking her decision would completely alter her future.But as those in attendance would soon find out, she was a natural. Even Anders, who led Old Dominion to nine national championships during her illustrious coaching career, took notice immediately.“You could tell she was going to be good from the get-go,” Anders said. “She could see someone do something and repeat it on the spot.”It might have been the first time the two worked together, but it wouldn’t be the last.Page said her multiple visits to Old Dominion shaped her as a player. She received one-on-one lessons from Anders and saw what it was like to play for a powerhouse Division I program.“It was beneficial in the fact that I got to play, and I developed my skills a little bit quicker than others,” she said. “Not just my skills. My knowledge of the game is greatly owed to that.”That knowledge paid off in the high school ranks, as Page went on to score 66 goals for Cocalico.Her lone regret was failing to win a state championship, Cocalico’s closest opportunity being a finals appearance in 2010.That’s why Page had to choose a college team capable of winning a championship. Mother Krista said this desire, along with Jordan’s adulation for former Orange midfielder Shannon Taylor, led her daughter to Central New York.Anders was disappointed that Page didn’t pick Old Dominion, but she still wished her the best.“A player with her caliber, you would certainly want to coach on your team,” she said. “But that’s a family decision and I’m sure it was the right one for her.”Anders also said that Page is one of the most coachable players she has ever worked with, one that rarely repeats mistakes and does whatever it takes to help the team.Page’s current head coach, Ange Bradley, found that out when the junior accepted a position change earlier this season.“When we shifted her from a midfield to a back, that was the single most growing moment of our team system and style of play,” Bradley said. “It allowed us to go from being a good team to a great team, and that really made a lot of difference in the way we play.”Just as Page has been a catalyst for Syracuse in 2013, her family continues to be the biggest influence in her field hockey career. She said that none of her accomplishments would be possible without the support of her parents.“They gave up a lot of themselves to help me and have me succeed,” she said.Krista Page said her proudest moment as a parent came during Syracuse’s overtime loss to No. 1 Maryland on Oct. 18. It was during that game that, after watching Jordan develop as a player for the past eight years, she fully grasped how mature her daughter had become.“She played out of her mind in my opinion that day,” Krista Page said as she fought back tears. “There were national team players on that field, and there she is shutting them down.“It just brings tears to your eyes because you want nothing more than for your kids to do the best that they can do.”Even Jordan is amazed by how far she has come since she stood up from that aluminum bleacher seat in 2005 and began the next chapter of her life. Although her main objective has yet to be achieved, she still finds complete fulfillment in her ability to handle any bounce on the field.“We’re still striving to win a national championship here, which was an ultimate goal when I came to Syracuse,” Page said. “But it’s just going out, working hard, and seeing results happen. Just getting closer and closer to the ultimate goal that we all have here.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 28, 2013 at 12:41 am Contact Tyler: [email protected]

Powered by Firework As the entire world has come into a standstill because of the global pandemic novel coronavirus, all the sporting events have either been postponed or cancelled across the globe. Although Cricket Australia have announced their next tournament, the International Cricket Council on Tuesday has shared some changes to playing regulations which also included COVID-19 substitutes for Test cricket and the ban of using saliva to shine the ball as well.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Reuters/BCCIThe decision came with a view to reducing the risk of the spread of the global pandemic and also ensure the safety of players and match officials whenever the game starts. Meanwhile, the Anil Kumble-led Cricket Committee had come up with several options which have now been ratified by the ICC Chief Executives’ Committee (CEC).One of the rules are – teams can ask for substitute players if in case any member(s) of the playing XI show COVID-19 symptoms during the Test. This is similarly the concussion replacements, the ICC match referee will approve a like-for-like replacement from the team. However, it will not work in white-ball cricket.Advertisement Since the saliva is banned in the game, a team will get two warnings per innings by the umpires but if they use it repeatedly then the batting side will be awarded a five-run penalty. Meanwhile, the umpires will clean the ball whenever saliva is applied to the ball. However, they have been asked to be a little easy since this thing is totally new for the players and it will take time to get used to with the new guidelines.Along with these, the ICC has also asked an extra logo in a Test match shirt for the next 12 months to woo sponsors and make up for their huge financial losses owing to the global pandemic COVID-19. “It has been done to help the members from a commercial perspective. It also gives value to sponsors,” the source addedAdvertisement Moreover, the ICC has come up with the decision to appoint neutral match officials across formats temporarily as this could give some more game time to the lesser experienced local umpires on the panel. Even the ICC has decided to allow an additional DRS review for each team in each innings of a game as well.Meanwhile, everyone is waiting for the outcome of the ICC’s virtual Board meeting tomorrow which is on June 10 as it would decide the future of the ICC T20 World Cup which is scheduled to take place later this year in Australia amongst other tournaments those are lined-up in the upcoming few months.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also, follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comALSO READ:Shreyas Iyer: I have ‘sealed’ number 4 spot in Indian batting orderHarbhajan Singh to begin his second innings with acting, shares movie poster Advertisement

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Todd NeeleyDTN Staff ReporterOMAHA (DTN) — Harvest weather may be favorable in much of the Midwest in September and concerns about an early first freeze for many farmers may have diminished, DTN Senior Ag Meteorologist Bryce Anderson said Wednesday during DTN’s harvest weather outlook webinar.Anderson said despite concerns across the Corn Belt about an early freeze, DTN’s forecast calls for a normal or average first-freeze date in many regions.In most central and Northern Plains areas, crops will “race the average” first freeze date, he said. In many areas where crop development is behind, Anderson said the first freeze date needs to lag by at least one week to help crops make up ground.“If there is a freeze in the last 10 days of September, there will be crop damage,” he said. “In some areas, crops will have a chance of meeting maturity.”The first freeze date in places like central Nebraska and central Iowa, for example, usually falls during the first 10 days of October.“Usually in this area the first freeze is not a big deal,” Anderson said. “Not this year.”In the southern and Eastern Corn Belt, an October frost date will be likely, he said. “It is in a part of the country where planting was very, very late,” Anderson said.TEMPERATURE FORECASTSIn the north and central Midwest, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is forecasting below-normal harvest temperatures.“In our view, in the upper atmosphere high pressure is ridging,” Anderson said.Low pressure in Western Canada is a “weak feature,” he said. However, NOAA forecasts call for low pressure to move south, leading to above-average precipitation and below-average temperatures.In DTN’s view, Anderson said there will be near- to above-average temperatures in the fall for many regions, which is favorable for late crop development.He said the good news for farmers across much of the Midwest is that in the next 10 days upper air features indicate major crop areas are unlikely to get “real cold, real fast.” That’s because a zonal flow of high pressure across the U.S. should allow favorable temperatures for crop development.Anderson said this may bode well for states such as Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin where crop development is woefully behind as a result of a series of wet weather events in the spring.Over the next seven days, however, Anderson said there will be a cooler trend for the Northern Plains and the northern Midwest.When it comes to precipitation during the next seven days, Anderson said there will be an area of moderate-to-heavy rainfall from the northern Midwest to the Southeast. The Eastern Corn Belt is likely to see just areas of light precipitation in the next seven days.Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and others in the upper Midwest face a deficit of 50 to 100 growing degree days. In the western and northern Midwest, Anderson said, the cooler pattern has not allowed crop maturity to continue.PACIFIC COOLINGDuring the July-to-August time frame, he said the eastern Pacific Ocean has cooled, moving from an El Nino pattern to neutral.“When the eastern Pacific has cooled the response is hotter and drier in the Southern Plains,” Anderson said.When it comes to precipitation, Anderson said September throughout the Plains will not be quite as wet as NOAA’s forecast.One wildcard to consider is the level of storm activity in the tropics, he said. Currently there is an elevated potential for tropical storms in the Gulf of Mexico to include a forecasted 16-named storms.“Tropical activity is one potential problem for the fall weather harvest outlook,” Anderson said.“Harvest is going to be late. There will be a lot more grain dried down than we’ve seen in some areas.”BENEFICIAL RAINSOn a positive note, Anderson said recent 1- and 2-inch rainfalls in central areas of the Midwest came at a time when crops needed the moisture. “It is going to help, I don’t think we can discount that,” he said.Despite a favorable fall forecast, Anderson said it’s difficult to say how the wet spring weather, which led to 19 million acres of prevented planting this year, will affect the final harvest.“It was a very wet year — well above average in most states and near-record amounts,” he said. “It has caused a whole lot of complications. There are still areas of concern. This is not going to go away.”In looking at the vegetation index as of Aug. 1, Anderson said there are many areas of the map colored in brown — indicating areas of zero vegetation.“It illustrates the kind of acreage loss and prevented planting we’re dealing with this year” in areas across the Corn Belt, he said.One question asked is whether prevented planting acres were on subpar quality acres.“There’s some of that, but also real good ground that was too wet to plant,” Anderson said. “We do have uneven crops all over the place.”Anderson pointed to McLean County, Illinois, an annual powerhouse corn-producing area that turns out consistent crops. As of Aug. 21, he said the county’s corn crop is facing lack of pollination and extreme variability.“It is an area where usually development of crops is uniformly large,” he said. “We’re not seeing that this year.”Todd Neeley can be reached at [email protected] him on Twitter @toddneeleyDTN(ES/CZ)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

The Ohio State women’s hockey team listens to head coach Nadine Muzerall during a timeout in its game against Bemidji State on Feb 8. Ohio State lost 3-2. Credit: Cori Wade | For The LanternOhio State women’s hockey entered the WCHA tournament semifinal likely needing a win to have any chance of qualifying for the NCAA tournament.On Saturday, Wisconsin redshirt senior forward Annie Pankowski likely dashed those chances with a third period goal to send the Badgers to their fifth-straight conference tournament championship game.No. 9 Ohio State (20-13-2, 12-10-2 WCHA) dropped to No. 2 Wisconsin (31-4-2, 18-4-2 WCHA) in a 3-2 loss that saw three lead changes Saturday in the WCHA Final Faceoff in Minneapolis.Pankowski, the WCHA Offensive Player of the Year, scored her team-leading 22nd goal on a game-winner assisted by junior forward Abby Roque 15 minutes into the final period.Wisconsin tripled the Buckeyes in shot output at 42-14, which was its fifth-straight game of the season dominating Ohio State in shot discrepancy. Just four Buckeyes attempted more than one shot in the game, while 12 Badgers had multiple shot attempts.Ohio State freshman goalie Andrea Braendli, the WCHA leader in save percentage at .939, stopped 39 shots from the NCAA’s second-highest scoring team, but it wouldn’t be enough for the Buckeyes.Badgers’ redshirt junior goalie Kristen Campbell earned her NCAA-leading 31st win amid her WCHA Goaltender of the Year campaign.Wisconsin battled back from a 2-1 second period deficit to end the game with two unanswered goals in the final 21 minutes.A hooking penalty on Ohio State senior forward Jacyn Reeves allowed the Badgers a first period power play opportunity that Wisconsin freshman forward Britta Curl converted 10 minutes into the action.Curl’s 21st goal of the season came assisted by junior defenseman Mekenzie Steffen on Wisconsin’s first shot of the power play.Wisconsin entered the game with the most power play goals in the WCHA with 28 on 112 opportunities, while the Buckeyes lead the conference with 7.1 penalty minutes per game.Ohio State sophomore forward Tatum Skaggs retaliated eight minutes later with her team-leading 17th goal on a rebound from a long range shot by redshirt junior Jincy Dunne to enter the first intermission locked at 1-1. Senior forward Charly Dahlquist extended the Buckeyes’ lead when she deflected senior defenseman Lauren Boyle’s shot past Campbell 12 minutes into the second period.Wisconsin knotted the game up again in the second period’s final minute with freshman forward Sophie Shirley’s 20th goal of the season to send the semifinal to the third period tied at 2.Following Pankowski’s third period strike, Ohio State played with an empty net in the final two minutes, but to no avail.The Badgers advance to the WCHA Final Faceoff championship game Sunday where they seek to avenge last year’s 3-1 loss to Minnesota.The Buckeyes, who achieved their first back-to-back 20-win seasons, await Sunday’s NCAA selection show where they hope to sneak into their second straight national tournament.
