Rose Ladies Series: English college trio back from USA to take on top pros

first_imgPhotograph credit: Leaderboard Annabell Fuller has revealed her excitement at returning to competitive golf after her freshman year at the University of Florida came to a premature halt in March.The 18-year-old women’s international from Surrey (pictured above centre) is one of three English amateurs in the field for tomorrow’s second instalment of the Rose Ladies Series at Moor Park Golf Club in Hertfordshire.Annabell lines up alongside her 21-year-old sister Samantha (above right) and fellow England women’s overseas squad member Caley McGinty (above left) in the tournament sponsored by England Golf ambassador Justin Rose and his wife Kate.All three women are currently at college in America; Annabell in Florida, Sammy at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas and Caley at Kent State in Ohio.For the younger of the Fuller sisters, 2020 was shaping up to be a big year as she looked forward to NCAA events followed by a summer of golf back home in England.However, the coronavirus pandemic forced her to cut short her stay in the Sunshine State and return to England for the duration of lockdown.Now though the competitive juices are flowing again as she prepares to peg it up alongside LET players Charlotte Thompson and Becky Brewerton.“I can’t wait to compete again. My last college event was in mid-March just before I came home,” admitted Fuller, a member at Roehampton Golf Club“I’ve obviously played a lot over the last few weeks but it’s hard to tell where your game is.“I flew home at the end of March when my college closed down and all the NCAA events had been cancelled.“Originally I was only due back in England last week, but obviously these plans had to change.“Now it will be amazing to play in such a big event and test my game.“To have Sammy playing too is great and she’s teeing off in the group after mine so we can keep in touch.“My mum Oshi is going to caddie for me. I don’t like people saying too much to me when I’m playing, so my mum knows that and understands when the time is right to chat.”Fuller has divided her time in the States between her academic and sporting pursuits.On campus, her studies in applied physiology and kinesiology are going well and her first year was completed via online classes.On the golf course, there is a belief her game has improved as a result of being driven to new levels by her team-mates on the Gators squad.“I love it,” admitted Fuller. “It’s better than I expected.“My team is so strong and we push each other and then come together when playing team events. Everybody has got each other’s back and that’s amazing.”On Tuesday, the Fuller sisters enjoyed a practice round together at Moor Park.Last week Annabell admitted that she kept tabs on the first event of the series at Brokenhurst Manor without knowing she was going to be involved in the second.“I only found out on Friday I would be involved this week,” she confirmed.“I had spoken to Liz Young, one of the organisers, when news of the series first broke.“It’s great to get the shout for this one because it’s less than an hour from home.”Charley Hull saw off the challenge from former English international Young at the first play-off hole last week at Brokenhurst and both women are in the field of 51 players again at Moor Park.This week, they will be joined by Solheim Cup winner Bronte Law as she begins her competitive comeback.Amateur Tee-times:12.18 – Charlotte Thompson, Becky Brewerton, Annabell Fuller12.31 – Felicity Johnson, Chloe Williams, Samantha Fuller1.36 – Bronte Law, Sophie Powell, Caley McGinty 24 Jun 2020 Rose Ladies Series: English college trio back from USA to take on top pros Unfortunately, no spectators are allowed on course for this event due to social distancing restrictions.Keep up to date with the Rose Ladies Series by following England Golf’s Twitter account and watch highlights on Sky Sports.

Jamaica grooming junior triathletes

first_img PROMISING JUNIORS Sprint powerhouse Jamaica is quietly grooming juniors to be international triathlon athletes, following the lead set by Iona Wynter, who finished 34th at the 2000 Syndey Olympics. International Triathlon Union (ITU) coach Ina Daley recently travelled to Mexico City with junior triathlete Johnathan Lyn to participate in the Americas Triathlon Confederation (CAMTRI) Youth Olympic Games Development camp. The camp was staged at the National Centre of Development of Sports Talents and High Performance. It targeted junior athletes (born 2001-2002) and coaches ahead of the upcoming Youth Olympic Games 2018, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Daley, who has represented Jamaica at the Central American and Caribbean Games and the ITU Age-Group World Championship, said the camp was a success and she was excited with its goals. “I am excited about this programme with its long-term goals of raising the competitive level of athletes in the Caribbean and Central American region,” said Daley, who gained her ITU coaching certification last September in Mexico. “As a coach, it was a good learning experience and exposure to planning for the long-term development in the triathlon for both Junior and elite triathletes,” she added. Jamaica has no athlete in the World Triathlon Series ranking, which pits the world’s fastest triathletes, head-to-head, in Standard and Sprint-distance races, staged in iconic cities, for a chance to be crowned world champion. However, the island has two promising juniors, Lyn and Llori Sharpe, who have had about a year of exposure to the sport, Daley said. Sharpe, a 16-year-old St Andrew High School fifth-form student, finished 18th of 56 competitors at last September’s World Junior Championships in Mexico. She was the only competitor from the Caribbean and the first time Jamaica was sending a representative to the event. Sharpe was recently awarded the VMBS Youth Award at the RJR Sports Foundation National Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year awards. Pleased with the juniors’ progress, Daley recently founded a multi-sport club, Athlete’s Edge, “to bring structure and support to the development of the triathlon sport at all ages and levels”, she pointed out. “Working with the national federation is a priority to assist in structuring a youth-development programme. I want to attract the youth to this amazing sport and for them to see the opportunities to be gained. I also see it as a great family sport and one that can encourage health and wellness in the Jamaican community,” she said.last_img read more

Baldonnel residents search for solutions to high-traffic dirt roads

first_imgCarlson said she knows it’s not possible to have the road paved by next summer, but her and other residents sought chipsealing the road as a more efficient solution for a rural road.A representative from Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm’s Constituency Office told Energetic City that the complaints received about this issue were redirected to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, who sent representatives to analyze the land in the late summer.According to Carlson, they told her a traffic study will be done in the near future, but have not updated to say when.As for now, Carlson said they will be compiling the result of public meeting brainstorming and distributing this new information to public officials and the respective ministries to step closer to finding a solution.Advertisement Residents in Baldonnel and Two Rivers are working towards solutions to improve the state of dirt roads, and shared their thoughts and opinions on Tuesday night during a meeting.Two Rivers resident Karin Carlson organized the event with Brenda Leslie, in response to the increase of traffic in the respective towns.“That gravel pit opened up this summer, it wasn’t there before and the volume and the amount of traffic has been causing some problems with the maintenance on the road because they weren’t built for that kind of traffic,” Carlson told Energetic City.- Advertisement -“In the summertime, the dust creates a real hazard. You can’t see either oncoming traffic, or anybody who might be on the road,” she said, adding around 30 to 40 people attended, and shared similar feelings.Carlson also learned during this meeting that the residents who live on corner have the endure the sound created by big trucks using their jake brakes.The solutions they discussed were separated as short- or long-term solutions. Short term solutions can be reached within 1-3 years, and long term would take up to 10 years to finalize.Advertisementlast_img read more

Arsenal and Liverpool on alert as Real Madrid listen to offers for midfielder

first_img Real Madrid star Jese Rodriguez 1 Real Madrid will listen to offers for Arsenal and Liverpool target Jese Rodriguez this summer.The 23-year-old forward has been nudged even further down the pecking order by the return of Alvaro Morata, who has so far stayed put at the Bernabeu despite links with Chelsea and Arsenal.And, according to Marca, with his first-team opportunities now even more limited, Jese could be sold for the right price before the window shuts.Although he made 28 La Liga appearances last term, he started only seven matches, scoring a total of five goals.Despite having a strong relationship with manager Zinedine Zidane, it has been reported that the Frenchman has advised Jese to consider opportunities elsewhere given his age.That will come as good news to both Arsenal and Liverpool, who have tracked the Gran Canaria-born ace in the past.However there are a number of Spanish clubs who will be hoping to keep him in La Liga this summer, too.last_img read more

GAA NEWS: TIR CHONAILL GAELS WIN SECOND CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH TO SECURE SEMI-FINAL SPOT

first_imgTom O’Connor R.I.PA dark cloud descended over the club on Sunday morning with the sad news of the passing of our much loved vice president and friend Tom O’Connor. Tom passed away after a short illness and stay at Northwick Park Hospital. Tom was a native of Co Limerick and was very proud of his native county and has been a great club servant for over the last two decades and very recently up until taking ill. Tom was highly involved in the minor board in earlier years to which he was still serving as President and more recently was at the forefront of the lotto committee and was always on duty on match days in Greenford and Ruislip raising funds for the club. He had a warm smile and handshake every time you met him and very much enjoyed the fun that went with the club lotto and meeting the many people who came to the club, in short he was a mighty Gael. The esteem in which Tom was held could be felt in the sadness that was expressed by members of all clubs that were in Ruislip for Sundays’ games. A minutes silence was held in his honor before our match with St Kiernans. Tom is survived by his daughter Pat and we send our sincere sympathies and prayers. We hope to inform all club members of funeral arrangements in the coming days.May Tom rest in peace.Home Grown FinalOur all English born panel contested the all Britain final on Saturday evening in Ruislip V Sean McDermotts from Birmingham. After an even start for both teams, McDermotts hit 1-4 on the trot to give them an 8 point lead after 20 minutes. The Gaels pulled back 2 points to go into the break 6 points adrift.The 2nd half saw the Gaels rally and they had McDermotts pegged back when Francis McGinley rattled the onion bag and the comeback was on. They raced into a 4 point lead but McDermotts pulled a goal back and hit a 45 between the posts with the last kick to send the game into extra time.The Gaels controlled the first period and went into the break 3 points up. The second period saw the Gaels hold their own and maintain their lead. With 5 mins left the Gaels made hard work of clearing the ball from defence and from a sideline ball launched into the box McDermotts pulled a goal back and then went on to register 3 points to confirm their victory.It was a great game and hopefully it will kick-start this competition for the future and renew rivalries of old with clubs from other cities around England.SeniorsThe seniors played St Kiernans in the 2nd round of the championship on Sunday in Ruislip. The Gaels started the game in high gear and never gave the Kiernans a sniff from start to finish. A great individual solo effort from Liam Gavigan running with the ball on the deck from the 45 to score a goal was the highlight of the first half. The defence was uncompromising and laid he foundations for Liam Gavigan, Adam Askin and Mark Gottsche to control possession and launch attacks.A fortunate goal at the beginning of the 2nd half killed the game as a contest but the Gaels kept the scoreboard ticking over. With two wins from twp the boys can look forward to a semi-final after commanding the group.Best WishesThe club sends best wishes to former player and club member Danny Tully after a short illness, we hope to see him down supporting the club very soon.Tir Chonaill Gaels Club Notes – 17 August 2015SeniorsSeniors had no fixtures at the weekend. They are back in action this Sunday 23rd of August in the Championship V St Kiernans this Sunday at 12.00 in Ruislip. Come out and support Barney, Lloyd and the boys.Juniors/HomegrownLast week saw a little piece of history being made when a senior team consisting of players all born in London consisting of all the junior players and complimented with 3 from the seniors won the London homegrown championship beating St Kiernans after a reply.The first game on Tuesday was a thriller with St Kiernans leveling with the last attack of the game. The replay on Thursday saw the Gaels race into a 7 point lead only for the Kiernans to hit 1-3 without reply. The boys showed great character by taking the game back by the scruff of the neck and going two points up to settle the nerves and see the game out. Liam O´Regan had a stormer in the full back line with battling performances from Gavin McEvoy, Aidan McGarvey, Killian Butler and Kieran Clarke.Over both games the Kiernans and Gaels played with great intentsity and rivalry which was a great compliment to the youth structures they have in place and to the people who brought these players through the ranks at each club- well done to all at both clubs. A special mention of thanks to Cormac McGarvey who treated the players and supporters to refreshments afterwards.As a result, the boys play in the all Britain final this coming Saturday V John Mitchells in Ruislip at 6pm. Lets get out and support the lads.ReservesThe old boys are out on Wednesday evening against the North London Shamrocks in the first round of the Championship, throw in at 7.15pm in Tottenhall. Good luck to Brian and the boys for the campaign.GAA NEWS: TIR CHONAILL GAELS WIN SECOND CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH TO SECURE SEMI-FINAL SPOT was last modified: August 24th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GAASportlast_img read more

EPA proposal has local impact

first_imgDozens of local companies would no longer have to report the amounts of toxic chemicals they release into the air, water and ground, under a federal proposal to cut reporting requirements, a study by an environmental group showed. The National Environmental Trust, which did the study detailing which communities would be most impacted, warned the change would lead to a loss of important information for people living near industrial plants, and could endanger their health. The federal Environmental Protection Agency proposes to lower the threshold at which companies would have to report emissions to a national Toxics Release Inventory, a tool for residents to track what and how much pollution factories and companies in their neighborhoods produce. Currently, companies that emit more than 500 pounds of toxics a year into the air, waterways or landfills must report how much of each chemical they release. Under the proposal, that threshold would be raised to 5,000 pounds. Tony Iallonardo, deputy director for the National Environmental Trust said the loss in reporting would make companies less accountable for their emissions. The inventory has been a strong incentive for companies to pollute less, he said. “The \ allows communities to know what is next door to them, to know what their neighborhood business is carrying,” he said. “Getting rid of these requirements would make it easier for companies to pollute.” The TRI was created in 1986, after a deadly chemical accident at a Union Carbide pesticide plant in Bhopal, India, in 1984. Thousands of nearby residents, unaware the chemicals were being used at the plant, were killed by the leak. EPA officials say the changes are part of an effort to streamline reporting, and would save time and money for smaller businesses. They say more than 99 percent of toxic releases will still be fully reported. Releases of the most harmful chemicals – on a list of “persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic” chemicals, like lead, would still have to be reported even in trace amounts, according to the EPA. The proposal is expected to save 165,000 hours per year spent on reporting emissions, according to the EPA. “We have tried since the start of the program to make it as easy as possible,” said Suzanne Ackerman, spokeswoman for the EPA, which collects data from some 24,000 facilities a year. “Nobody likes filling out long forms. We have tried to streamline the program.” The EPA is seeking public comment on the changes until Jan. 13. In another action, the EPA is also planning a rule to modify the frequency of reporting from every year to every other year. According to the Trust study, which is based on 2003 emissions data, this area would lose data from about 30 companies, ranging from chemical distributors to a paint company, and including some which release metals like lead, chromium, and nickel. The city of Industry would lose data from seven companies, and Santa Fe Springs would lose data from about eight. Other affected communities include South El Monte, El Monte, Pico Rivera, Irwindale, San Dimas, La Mirada and Duarte. John Mandel, spokesman for US Gypsum Co., which has a Santa Fe Springs facility that manufactures sheetrock and cement board and would not be affected by the proposal, said the change would not affect how the plant is run, and the company intended to “comply with the letter of the law in environmental matters as well as the spirit of the law” regardless of the proposal’s fate. As far as air quality goes, many of these companies will still have to contend with the South Coast Air Quality Management District, which has its own reporting requirements for emissions into the air. About half of the area’s companies that reported emissions of toxics into the air would still have to report to the AQMD, according to a list compiled by AQMD staff. shirley.hsu@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2306 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
