Schulte no longer head coach

first_imgCatcher Dana Rasmussen looks on during a 2010 game at Goodman Diamond. While the Badgers won five more games in 2010 than they had in each of the two previous seasons, it was not enough to save their head coach.[/media-credit]After three consecutive losing seasons, Chandelle Schulte’s run as head softball coach at the University of Wisconsin is over.Schulte, who went 99-153 overall and 23-70 in Big Ten play over her five years at the helm, did not have her contract renewed Thursday, as the UW Athletic Board voted not to do so.Schulte’s only winning season over five years at Wisconsin came in 2007, as the Badgers went 27-20 in her second year as head coach. They were just 6-12 in conference play, however.The 2010 version of the Badgers improved from the previous two, going 20-31 after back-to-back 15-40 seasons, but it was not enough to earn Schulte an additional year as head coach.“I appreciate Chandelle’s efforts during her years with us and I wish her well,” UW athletic director Barry Alvarez said in a statement. “We will immediately begin the process of searching for a new head softball coach.”Schulte was just the second head coach in the history of the program after replacing Karen Gallagher, who resigned in 2005.In her final season before taking the position at Wisconsin, Schulte earned her 300th career victory as a head coach. She did so at College of Charleston, where she was head coach for four years. During her tenure, the Cougars were 163-82, with one NCAA regional appearance, a conference tournament championship and two regular season Southern Conference titles.Schulte’s most successful season as a head coach came in 2005, when she led College of Charleston to a school and Southern Conference record 53 wins. The Cougars also had seven players named to all-conference teams while Schulte was named SoCon Coach of the Year.last_img read more

Wholesale vendors arrested by Constabulary officers for plying trade

first_imgAlmost 30 wholesale vendors were on Thursday afternoon arrested by City Constabulary officers and placed on station bail for allegedly attempting to ply their trades in the vicinity of Robb and Alexander Streets, Bourda, Georgetown.At the scene on Thursday, family members of the arrested merchants, who are also vendors, stood out in their numbers and told media operatives that the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) is stifling their means of earning an honest income.“The Revenue [officer] come collect the money. I already done pay to sell in the car. The Constable them come now and seh no selling… A whole gang of them gone in inside. Wa you gon do with the load? We done pay to sell,” one of theSome of the produce that the vendors were unable to sellmerchants identified as “Natasha” told Guyana Times.This newspaper understands the vendors were given permission by the M&CC to ply their trades along Robb Street, Bourda, for three hours a day, with the cut off point for them at the location being 15:00h.As such, they are ordered to pay a sum of $1000 to $1500 on a daily basis.“The three hour vary from when you come. That’s what City Hall tell we but they [Constabulary Officer] now come with different rules,” another irate vendor explained.According to him, they were told on Thursday that the three hours commenced from 07:00h which indicated that their selling period would conclude at 10:00h.However, the wholesale vendors complained that the logic behind the time set is severely flawed and hinders them from achieving their maximum sales which leads to a significant loss in their produce.“I come from till a Berbice and is eschalot and celery we bringing down. The eschalot and celery can’t reach here fuh 7 ‘o’clock. The only way it can reach is if we bring it a night before and we can’t do that because it gon spoil. Is perishable items we does sell,” a merchant explained.Another vendor, who identified herself as a single mother, was almost in tears as she explained that she is running out of options to provide a daily bread for her family.“My kids going to school… I buy and sell load [vegetables]. I take greens from the farmers. You does bring the load and you does have to sell it [because] when you go home, farmers look forward for their money,” she said.The vendors called on Town Clerk Royston King to engage them to better understand their day to day plights, giving him a more sympathetic view when it came to the council making rules which would adversely affect the merchants.They recalled that Government had urged them to plant more and to invest in farming; however, according to the vendors, the advice is of no use if they are being hindered constantly from selling their goods.Meanwhile, at the Bourda Police Outpost, a large group of vendors were seen seated on the bench inside.When this publication enquired as to which officer could provide information as to why the merchants had been arrested, the news entity was immediately snubbed.Moreover, the female constables were heard screaming and shouting at the relatives of the vendors who had been apprehended, ordering them to leave the outpost.Also witnessing this was City Councillor Bishram Kuppen who expressed his belief that the vendors’ arrests seem to be racially instigated.“When we came here, apparently there were about 20 vendors that were arrested. They are all of one ethnic background. They’re all [East] Indian vendors. Now I’m wondering why there are only these [East] Indian people that are being arrested…The people are just trying to make a living here and I don’t understand why they’re hassling them… Some of these people cannot afford to pay bail and they’re crying inside there,” he said.He also criticised the inappropriate behaviour of the City Constabulary officers.When contact was made with Royston King regarding the issue, he explained that he had not received an official report on the matter.However, he said in prior instances, the M&CC had being experiencing some problems with the wholesale vendors who were attempting to extend their activities beyond the three-hour limit.“In so doing, they were influencing in a very negative way, the flow of business in our [nearby] markets. In particular, the Bourda Green area,” King explained.King further noted that he has had several meetings with the vendors “and we had tried to persuade them to abide by the time given to them by the Clerk of Markets so that all of the vendors who are involved in making a living would be given an opportunity to do so.”As such, he posited that action had to be taken to bring some order.last_img read more

Premier League team of the weekend: Do you agree with this XI?

first_img Goalkeeper – Tim Howard (Everton) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – The veteran American shot-stopper drew criticism for his performance in the 2-0 defeat against Manchester City earlier this month. But he was back on top form against Spurs as impressive stops from Harry Kane, Ryan Mason and Toby Alderweireld at White Hart Lane earned Everton a valuable point. 11 It was another thrilling weekend of action in the Premier League.Crystal Palace, West Ham and Swansea picked up impressive wins, while Manchester City continued their faultless start to the season by comfortably dispatching new boys Watford.But which top-flight stars shone brightest? Click through our gallery to see talkSPORT’s team of the weekend… 11 11 11 Defender – Joel Ward (Crystal Palace) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – The 25-year-old was one of Crystal Palace’s standout performers as the Eagles stunned Chelsea to claim a first win at Stamford Bridge since 1982. Not only did Ward keep Eden Hazard quiet, but he wasn’t afraid to get forward himself and capped an excellent individual – and team – display with the winning goal ten minutes from time. 11 Forward – Raheem Sterling (Manchester City) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – Eyebrows were raised at the £49m fee City paid to lure Sterling away from Liverpool in the close season. But there’s no doubting the 20-year-old’s quality and he already appears to have made a big difference to Manuel Pellegrini’s side. Watford were unable to cope with his pace and trickery on Saturday as the England ace grabbed the first of what is sure to be many goals for City. Midfielder – Manuel Lanzini (West Ham) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – Lanzini was likened to David Silva by Hammers boss Slaven Bilic when he arrived on loan from Al Jazira earlier this summer – and he certainly lived up to the comparisons with the Manchester City superstar at Anfield. The diminutive attacking midfielder scored the opening goal in the 3-0 win and didn’t give the Liverpool defence a minute’s peace with an outstanding high-energy display. Defender – Damien Delaney (Crystal Palace) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – It’s not often defenders come out on top against Chelsea’s battering ram of a forward Diego Costa but Delaney did just that on Saturday. The 34-year-old was outstanding – along with the rest of the Palace defence – as he used all his experience to shackle and frustrate the fiery Spaniard. Defender – Ashley Williams (Swansea City) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – The Welshman has been one of the Premier League’s most consistent defenders in recent seasons and was influential as Swansea claimed a 2-1 victory over Manchester United on Sunday. He played a key role in his side’s equalising goal before denying Wayne Rooney a late leveller with a brilliantly timed challenge. Midfielder – Dusan Tadic (Southampton) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – Southampton have lost a host of top talents in recent seasons and could soon have a battle on their hands to keep hold of Tadic. The Serbian has started this season impressively and netted twice against Norwich on Sunday to help the Saints secure a first win of the campaign. 11 Midfielder – Fernandinho (Manchester City) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – The underrated Brazilian midfielder has arguably been City’s player of the season so far. He was certainly the pick of their central midfielders in Saturday’s 2-0 win against Watford – capping an impressive, energetic performance with a terrific strike, just like he did against Chelsea earlier this month. 11 11 11 Midfielder – Yannick Bolasie (Crystal Palace) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – Granted compassionate leave last week after the loss of his father, Bolasie returned to Alan Pardew’s squad to face Chelsea and made a sensational impact. Brought on for Wilfried Zaha ten minutes into the second half, the Congo winger tormented Branislav Ivanovic and played a key role in both of Palace’s goals in their stunning win. Forward – Andre Ayew (Swansea City) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – The Ghanaian is proving to be one of the signings of the summer. A free transfer from Marseille, Ayew netted his third Premier League goal of the season to draw his side level against Manchester United on Sunday before setting up Bafétimbi Gomis with an exquisite pass to fire Swansea to victory. Defender – Aaron Cresswell (West Ham) – Click the right arrow to see who else makes our team of the weekend… – The former Ipswich full-back has been a revelation for West Ham since his move to Upton Park in 2014. Solid in defence and comfortable in possession, Cresswell played his part at both ends against Liverpool as the Hammers triumphed at Anfield for the first time in more than 50 years. 11 11last_img read more
