Miranda Ramirez’s 12-match win streak snapped as SU falls, 5-2, to No. 27 North Carolina State

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 7, 2017 at 8:16 pm Contact Andrew: | @A_E_Graham It had been 75 days since Miranda Ramirez hadn’t scored the final point in her singles match. The freshman entered Friday rolling on a 12-match win streak — two shy of tying the Syracuse single-season record —  dating back to Jan. 22. But against No. 27 North Carolina State, Ramirez’s near-historic roll terminated.Since the last time Ramirez lost, she even became ranked, checking in at No. 79 in the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association rankings.“In tennis, sometimes one point here and there makes the difference,” SU head coach Younes Limam said, “and I think that’s what happened today.”The loss in three sets in No. 1 singles for Ramirez, 3-6, 6-4, 5-7, was a major stumble for Syracuse (6-10, 3-6 Atlantic Coast) as it fell, 5-2, to No. 27 N.C. State (17-7, 6-5) at Drumlins Country Club on Friday. After getting dismantled by the No. 15 doubles pairing of Martina Frantova and Anna Rogers, Ramirez faced No. 59 Frantova again. An emotional and mistake-filled match ensued, with Frantova edging a victory.A stagnant 6-2 loss in No. 1 doubles quickly turned into a dreary No. 1 singles first set for Ramirez. Straying into the unfamiliar territory of trailing, she dropped her first set, 6-3. The normally even-keeled Ramirez knew she needed to change something to get going, and that’s when she let her emotions bleed.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEarly in the second set it was frustration. When Frantova won a game to tie the second set, 1-1, Ramirez thwacked her racket onto the court as she looked down in disgust. A missed shot or poorly placed volley had Ramirez running her free hand over her brow, muttering to herself.“I can’t believe I missed that,” Ramirez said on the court.Even Frantova let emotions fly. Down 4-3 in the second set, she dropped a point that tied the game, 30-all. Frantova had originally called it out, but the umpire overruled her. Frantova retorted with a few choice words and was assessed a penalty, giving Ramirez a 40-30 lead.But the fracas only fueled Frantova, who went on and won the game anyways, tying the set, 4-4.“I think it’s just because it was a much tougher match,” Ramirez said. “… I was trying to get myself into it.”Codie Yan | Staff PhotographerRamirez looked off from the opening serve. A few nagging injuries — including some skin ripped off by athletic tape on her right foot — hindered her from feeling fully comfortable. As a result, shots went long, first serves carried wide and drop shots were smothered by the net. The spike in unforced errors took a visible toll on Ramirez, as she began to look more dejected with every miscue.Even with the uncharacteristic errors and emotions, Ramirez strung important games together in the third set, taking a 5-2 lead. But Frantova chipped away at Ramirez’s lead, eventually taking the lead, 6-5.Facing match point, Ramirez fired a return into the net, and the streak was over.“We all lose and win,” Ramirez’s doubles partner, sophomore Gabriela Knutson, said. “We all accept our losses.”In the aftermath of Ramirez’s most crucial miscue, the freshman slammed a ball into the green tarp behind the court as Frantova screamed on the other side of the net. All of the emotion had finally boiled over.“Ultimately,” Ramirez said, “I’m just going to go back to the practice court and forget about this the best I can.” Commentslast_img read more

Comeback kids: Badgers score three unanswered to force tie

first_imgWhile Halloween was Thursday, Friday at the Kohl Center gave the Wisconsin men’s hockey team a big scare. After falling in a 3-0 hole in the game’s first 4 minutes and 9 seconds, Wisconsin climbed back and salvaged a tie with Lake Superior State, scoring the tying goal with 1:22 left in regulation.Only 33 seconds into the tilt, Lake Superior State’s Alex Globke fired a shot that deflected off several players and found its way past a dazed junior goaltender Landon Peterson for Wisconsin (2-2-1). Just a little less than three minutes later, the Lakers (4-0-1) tickled the twine again, this time on a rebound power play goal by Dan Radke. But LSSU wasn’t finished, as 46 seconds after the second goal, Colin Campbell drifted down the slot and fired a weak wrister that snuck past Peterson, setting off a chorus of boos from the crowd.The large early deficit was eerily similar, almost as if time had rewound itself to two weeks ago when Wisconsin was throttled in back-to-back nights in Boston.“Well, we were hoping for a different start. As a matter of fact, when it was the way it was, it felt like we were in Boston again because the goals they scored were like the ones in Boston, hitting people. First goal hit three people and went in. The second goal was tipped in as well. The third goal, I think [Peterson] would like to have back and get a second try at it,” head coach Mike Eaves said. “But it felt like, holy smokes, we still haven’t got the demons from Boston out of our system yet.“It had its glimpses of [Boston],” Peterson said. “There were just unfortunate bounces from the point. That happens sometimes but it seems like it’s coming in pairs now. But you just got to forget about it. There’s nothing you can do about it. You can’t control it, so you just got to move forward.”Unlike the weekend in Boston, Wisconsin didn’t waiver in the face of adversity Friday and battled for one of the more memorable comebacks of recent memory.Getting his team back into the game late in the first period, senior forward Michael Mersch redirected junior defenseman Jake McCabe’s initial shot over the left shoulder of Lakers’ goaltender Kevin Kapalka with 3:39 left to cut the deficit to 3-1. Wisconsin essentially dominated play during the remainder of the game, but it wasn’t until the midway through the third period that the Badgers scored again. Senior forward Tyler Barnes cut the lead to one with 8:42 to play, and later netted the game-tying goal with 1:22 to play.With an empty Wisconsin net and an extra attacker on, Wisconsin won the faceoff in the offensive zone. McCabe blasted a drive from the right point that was stifled by Kapalka. But Barnes dug for the rebound in the crease and lofted a wrister over the Lakers’ netminder to send the Kohl Center into a frenzy.Neither team found the back of the net in the overtime session, but the tie was hardly a negative outcome for the Badgers, who outshot the Lakers 29-11 over the final two periods in a critical comeback.“I’m pumped. This is exactly what we needed for our guys – this kind of type of game to get some sound feedback that, ‘Hey, we’re a pretty good team.’ We overcame some adversity. We earned a 3-3 tie. We pulled our goalie. We did it, so that’s a good thing for us. That’s what we leave with tonight,” Eaves said.last_img read more

Korte, Tracy, Wetta, Brand, Green, Valentine – elected to council; Hadorn, Mangan to board; Sales tax question passes

first_imgWellington School Board: Dist. 1 Pos. 4Carol Hadorn 542Maria Cornejo 467Write ins 2Dist. 2 Pos. 5Larry Mangan 430Darin Goodrum 326Kevin Dodds 273Dist. 3 Pos. 6Jason Newberry 895Write-in 13 Caldwell At Large (3 elected)Christopher Baker 162Jennifer Brown 155Jacob Ginn 107Scott York 170Write-in 4 by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Sumner County voters went to the polls Tuesday to elect school board and city council members for the various local governments. No race was looked at more closely than Wellington’s new city council “at large” election.And the first historic election was a doozy. Only two of the eight city council incumbents will be returning to serve the Wellington city voters.Jan Korte, John Tracy and Vince Wetta became Wellington’s first four-year at large city council members.John Brand, Kelly Green and Jim Valentine will serve as the other three council members. They will serve two-year terms as a result for finishing fourth through sixth.Of those six, only Korte and Brand are currently on the council Tracy and Valentine are returning to the council after being off for a couple of years. Green and Wetta will be serving for the first time.“For the first time in 48 years, a majority of the Wellington City Council members will be new and not incumbents,” said J.P. Buellesfeld, political consultant.There were 15 city council candidates this year, a local record, running in the new election format which abolished ward voting. Up until this year, council members were elected to two-year terms by only the voters in their particular ward.The new at large election didn’t seem to put all candidates in one neighborhood either. All four of the abolished wards will have a representative.Wetta and Korte are from the old fourth ward. Green is from the old third ward, Valentine and Brand from the old first ward and Tracy is from the old second ward.On the school board side, Carol Hadorn and Larry Mangan were newly elected board members for USD 353. Along with Jason Newberry, who was unopposed, Wellington will have three new board members.As far as the county sales tax goes, Sumner County overwhelmingly voted to retain a half-cent sales tax to help fund Futures Unlimited, Sumner Mental Health Center, and rural county ambulance service. That will last for four years.There were also other Sumner County races.
