  • USC takes seventh place at NCAA championship

    first_imgIn an extremely competitive championship meet, USC senior Haley Anderson and sophomore Haley Ishimatsu took home three individual titles, while the No. 1 Trojans placed seventh overall at the 2013 NCAA women’s swimming and diving championships in Indianapolis.Finishing strong · Redshirt sophomore diver Haley Ishimatsu took home her first career NCAA title in a record-setting performance. — William Ehart | Daily TrojanAnderson secured USC’s first-ever NCAA title in the 1650-yard freestyle with a time of 15:45.98 on the final night of the meet and captured her second-straight NCAA crown in the 500-yard freestyle on the first night.Ishimatsu ran away with the platform title behind her NCAA record 396.75 points on night three and became the third Trojan to win an NCAA diving title.The Women of Troy finished with 291 points in a field of 40 schools to land in the NCAA top seven for the fourth-straight year. In both of the previous two years, USC placed third overall.Georgia won the team title with 477 points, while California, which had its two-year title streak snapped, finished second with 393.In the 1650-yard freestyle final, Anderson fought off Sarah Henry, the top seed from Texas A&M, who pulled within 0.81 with 50 yards remaining. Anderson ultimately took the win by 0.43.“I knew [Henry] could finish hard, so I was trying to stay as far ahead as I could over the last 100,” Anderson said. “It would have been nice to go faster, but it’s all about the win and all about getting the points for the team.”Ishimatsu, on the other hand, left her competition in the dust with her record-setting performance, winning by 68.15 points. She capped off her first career title with a two-and-a-half back somersault, one-and-a-half twist pike to score 84.80 points in her final dive.“My confidence going in was good compared to springboard because platform is my event, and it’s what I’ve done my whole career, so it was really nice to perform well tonight,” Ishimatsu said. “My goals were to do the dives like I was practicing and focusing on one dive at a time and the end result would be there, and I did that.”Ishimatsu now joins her sister, Victoria, as one of three Trojans with an NCAA diving title. Ishimatsu also won platform titles in the 2013 Pac-12 and NCAA Zone E Championships.“It was awesome. She performed every dive up to her standard and at her very best,” USC head diving coach Hongping Li said. “It was great to see her put everything together, which is not easy under pressure.”Along with Anderson and Ishimatsu’s efforts, sophomore Andrea Kropp and freshmen Jasmine Tosky and Kendyl Stewart all made final appearances on the last night of the championships.Stewart placed fourth in the 200-yard backstroke finals, setting personal and school records with a time of 1:51.28. She also tied for first in the 100-yard fly consolation final on Friday.After placing first in the 200-yard fly prelim, Tosky took fifth in the 200-yard fly with a 1:55.11 time and clinched her first NCAA individual points.Kropp set a personal record in the 200-yard breast prelim and finished seventh in the final. She was also a consolation finalist in the 200-yard individual medley.In the first night of the championships, juniors Stina Gardell and Meghan Hawthorne finished fourth and eighth, respectively, in the 200-yard individual medley finals, while junior Kasey Carlson placed seventh in the 50-yard freestyle relay.Though the Women of Troy collectively had strong performances, the team took a hit in the standings after its 400-yard medley relay was disqualified for a violation.“We found out in a tight meet we can’t have any mistakes, and that relay on the first day kind of cost us a little bit,” USC head coach Dave Salo said. “But the women did a great job coming back, and I’m really proud of their effort.”On night two, Carlson also placed second in the 100-yard breast, while Gardell took fourth in the 400-yard individual medley. USC’s 200-yard medley and 800-yard freestyle relay teams both placed sixth.“It was the tightest meet we’ve seen in probably six years or so, and if we do a little bit better here, a little bit better there, we have a good chance at another top-three finish,” Salo said. “Overall, though, I think we’ve grown up a lot.”last_img read more

  • Cricket: Reason for India’s wild success in matches in Hyderabad? A Ganesha temple

    first_imgAdvertisement(Photo Courtesy: Business Line)It is common for someone to seek the blessings of the almighty when things aren’t going good. But is it believable that the upturn of events for team India in Hyderabad is a Ganesha temple? Yes you heard it right!The visit of the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Uppal (Hyderabad) isn’t just another ground but a pilgrimage as you are greeted by a temple for Lord Ganesha. It is known to have been constructed in the year 2011 when both team India and IPL franchise Deccan Chargers were not winning any match in this ground.Following the arrival of Lord Ganesha to the cricket stadium, luck has shone bright on the home side. The first Test at this venue was in 2010 against New Zealand which ended in a draw after which the temple came up. The hosts registered emphatic victories in the next three games here.This trend of winning doesn’t look like being broken anytime soon as India sit comfortably in the driver’s seat vs Windies in the ongoing test match.Asked on how the temple came up at the venue, priest Hanumanth Sharma claimed that it was built in 2011 as “neither the Indian team nor the now-defunct IPL franchise Deccan Chargers was winning any match at this ground.” “It was proving to be inauspicious for the home team. Then it was found out that there was ‘Vaastu Dosham’ (problem in the building design, as per ancient Hindu architectural system),” he said. “Lord Ganesha is the God of Vaastu Shastra. You can check the records and after 2011, the Indian team never lost here,” Hanumanth said.Hemanth also grinned while admitting that MS Dhoni always came up to seek the blessings of Lord Ganesha after each practice session.Also Read:Ind vs WI- 2nd Test Day 2 Review: Rahane-Pant stand propells India to pole position Advertisementlast_img read more
