Earned It! Shawnee Mission North girls take second at state cross country

first_imgThe Shawnee Mission North girls cross country team wasn’t at full-strength and still finished second at the Class 6A state meet.This year’s state meet didn’t see the drama it did last year in the Class 6A girls state meet, but it did produce a better result for Shawnee Mission North coach Aaron Davidson’s squad.[pullquote]Class 6A Girls Standings1. Free State – 592. SM North – 873. Manhattan – 994. SM Northwest – 1195. Blue Valley Northwest – 123[/pullquote]The Lady Indians finished second overall, bettering last year’s third-place finish.In her final race, senior Amber Reed finished fourth in 18:54.70. Junior Cassie Raines was nearly a minute behind Reed in 19:53.30 as she finished 14th.The plan SM North set out was for the next three finishers to run together as long as possible. Sophomore Abby Onnen and junior Molly Ryan did just that as they finished five tenths apart in 23rd and 24th, respectively.Freshman Keagan Stiers completed the scoring with a 35th-place finish in 20:38.60. The Lady Indians, who finished 28 points behind Free State, were without sophomore Katie Kasunic. Looking at trends from this season, Kasunic would probably have finished in front of Raines, which would have most likely given SM North the title.SM North had a pair of boys running individually. Junior Joseph Coddington finished in 37th in 17:29.10, while sophomore Logan Jiskra finished 44th in 17:35.70.last_img read more

Top guns set for Carifta showdown

The other six field finals are the long jump for Under-20 girls and high jump for Under-17 boys, which start at 5 p.m.; the shot put for Under-17 boys (5:05 p.m.); the shot put for Under-20 boys at 6:15 p.m.; and the high jump for Under-17 girls and long jump for Under-20 boys, closing the show at 6:30 p.m. First track event The first track event of the day will begin at 5 p.m., the preliminary round of the girls’ Under-17 400 metres, which will have the likes of Hydel’s Aaliyah Baker, Holmwood’s Rickiann Russell, and Edwin Allen’s Kacian Powell as its main contenders.Defending Champs Class Two 400-metre champion Tahj Hamm of Holmwood Technical, who has a season’s best 47.80 seconds, will lead the Under-17 male group, where Richard Nelson of Clarendon College and Derrick Grant of Ferncourt, with season’s best times of 48.57 and 49.01 seconds, respectively, will also be hoping for good results.The preliminary round of the girls’ Under-20 one-lap event will get underway at 5:30 p.m., but it is the boys’ equivalent 15 minutes later that will attract the most attention, with Calabar’s Evaldo Whitehorne, Excelsior’s Demar Francis, Kingston College’s Tyrees Grant, and the Vere Technical pair of Deandre Anderson and Tyrece Taylor all down to contest what should be a fiercely competitive event.Edwin Allen’s ace sprinter, Kevona Davis, will also be in action today in the first round of the girls’ Under-20 100 metres, starting at 7:25 p.m.This will be her second time competing in the event this season after opening up at the Ben Francis Invitational Meet in 12.08 seconds while running against heavy winds.Her teammate, the vastly improved Brandy Hall; Excelsior’s Ackera Nugent; and Holmwood’s Sasheika Steele are all entered here and should give a good account of themselves.Edwin Allen twins Tia and Tina Clayton are on a collision course to meet for the first time this season, as both will be involved in the preliminary round of the girls’ Under-17 100m event, along with teammate Serena Cole. The event will get underway at 6:50 p.m.Racers Track Club’s Oblique Seville will be the top male in action today when he lines up in the heats of the boys’ Under-20 100 metres, which start at 7:40 p.m.Seville, who has a personal best of 10.13 seconds, is the defending Carifta Games champion in the event.SCHEDULETRACK EVENTS5:00 P.M. 400m HEATS GIRLS UNDER 175:15 P.M. 400m HEATS BOYS UNDER 175:30 P.M. 400m HEATS GIRLS UNDER 205:45 P.M. 400m HEATS BOYS UNDER 206:00 P.M. 1500m HEATS GIRLS UNDER 176:15 P.M. 1500m HEATS BOYS UNDER 176:30 P.M. 1500m HEATS GIRLS UNDER 206:45 P.M. 1500m HEATS BOYS UNDER 206:50 P.M 100m HEATS GIRLS UNDER 177:10 P.M. 100m HEATS BOYS UNDER 177:25 P.M. 100m HEATS GIRLS UNDER 207:40 P.M. 100m HEATS BOYS UNDER 20FIELD EVENTS4:30 P.M.

Fit-again Kane in contention for Spurs trip to Burnley

first_imgHarry Kane is back in full training and could return for Tottenham Hotspur’s away clash at Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday, manager Mauricio Pochettino said on Thursday.The 25-year-old striker has been out since injuring his ankle in Tottenham’s 1-0 defeat by Manchester United on Jan. 13.“He is good, I think we need to assess him for one more training session tomorrow and then decide but I think he is doing very well,” Pochettino told reporters at the club’s training ground.“I’m happy with him and maybe he’s going to be part of the squad for Saturday.”Kane, who has scored 14 Premier League goals this season, was originally expected to be out until March after damaging ligaments in his left ankle in stoppage time against United.“Everyone knows that Harry is an animal and wants to be ready as soon as possible and he does everything to make the recovery. We are so happy in the last 10 days he’s been training again and that will be a massive impact for us.“But I don’t care whether Harry wants to play, who decides (on whether he plays against Burnley) is myself, my coaching staff and the doctors and medical staff.”Kane notched seven goals in six games in all competitions prior to the United defeat, since when Tottenham have defied those who said his absence would derail their title challenge.They have won four successive league games since and beat Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie at Wembley.Victory over Burnley would leave Tottenham just two points behind leaders Manchester City, who play in the League Cup final this weekend, and Liverpool who face in-form Manchester United on Sunday.Tottenham then travel to Chelsea on Wednesday, followed by a home clash with Arsenal and the return in Dortmund.Pochettino said all that mattered was beating a Burnley side who are on a seven-match unbeaten run in the league.“It’s going to be tough, we needed a late goal in December to beat them at home,” Pochettino said.“For us Saturday is the most important game. If we are able to win the three points there, we will be able to see the game against Chelsea in a different way.“We don’t think about Chelsea, Arsenal or Dortmund, we only focus on Burnley because we will struggle if we’re not focussed 200 percent because in football anything can happen.”Midfielder Dele Alli is now Tottenham’s only injury absentee but Pochettino said he could be back from a hamstring injury in “one week, 10 days or two weeks”.Left back Danny Rose is doubtful with illness for the trip to Turf Moor — Tottenham’s first game for 10 days.last_img read more
