CWPA Western Championship Game Notes

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The No. 17 Indiana University women's water polo team will begin postseason play this weekend as they host the CWPA Western Division Championship at Counsilman-Billingsley Aquatic Center. The Hoosiers (17-14, 6-1 CWPA West) enter the tournament as the No. 2 seed and will take on No. 7 seed Chatham in first round action at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday. Indiana will play their second game on Saturday, with their opponent and game time yet to be determined. The final round of games will be played on Sunday.

Indiana wrapped up the regular season with four victories on April 3-5 during a trip to Pennsylvania. The Hoosiers clinched the No. 2 seed by defeating two divisional opponents, Gannon and Mercyhurst. Indiana then knocked off George Washington and picked up a quality road win at Bucknell, which ended an eight game Bison winning streak.

Hoosier Notebook

Steady Ranking - The Hoosiers have been ranked for the last 12 weeks, dating back to the January 28 release of the Varsity Top 20 poll. They also hold down the No. 3 position in the latest CWPA rankings, and Michigan took over the top spot from Hartwick.

Hannon Hot Streak - Senior Maggie Hannon has been on a scoring tear of late, recording 14 goals during the last seven contests, including a career high-tying five goals against Gannon on April 3. Hannon also tallied three assists, nine steals, and 15 kickouts drawn during that stretch. Against Bucknell, she scored her 125th career goal, passing Kelly McKay's 124 for sixth on the career scoring list.

Redder On Fire - Sophomore Nicole Redder has provided a solid scoring punch to the Hoosier arsenal late in the season to go along with her consistent defensive play. Redder scored 13 goals and swiped 13 steals during the last seven games. She has 53 steals this season, already surpassing her freshman total of 52.

Give and Take - Freshman Jakie Köhli has recorded at least one steal in 22 consecutive games for the Hoosiers, bringing her to a team-leading 55 takeaways on the season. Köhli also leads the team in assists with 29.

Lo Drawing the KO - Sophomore Lauren Wyckoff leads the team with 41 earned kickouts this season. She has drawn an exclusion in 11 of her last 12 games played. Wyckoff also leads the Hoosiers in scoring, along with Hannon, with 34 goals.

Mr. Baconpants

Mr. Baconpants Bacon is gaining in popularity because it’s the symbol of the anti-health culture. Every day we are told not to eat this or that because it will make us “unhealthy”. Well there are people out there that don’t care as much about health and just want to eat good food. The same people that love bacon are the same people that use real butter on their toast.

Letters to the editor: PE in schools, but not at CAPA for 9th Graders

Letters to the editor For health's sake
Two 'duh' points:

1. Single-payer health care is the first, best help for all U.S. businesses, especially the U.S. auto industry, which has huge health-care costs related to its pensioners. It's the best help for all of us, especially people who have lost their jobs and can't find another in the current deep recession. This is a moral issue: Everyone should have access to decent health care.

2. If you want to improve all kids' academic performance, they should have phys ed or recess built into the schedule -- every day. Show me a study that doesn't prove kids need to move and then maybe I'll understand why my ninth-grader at the Pittsburgh High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, along with most of his classmates, has no gym for the entire school year.

Franklin would know. She's been a lifeguard for eight years and also trains them. She said people on the pool deck seemed frozen in fear and didn't know what to do."

ESPN - Steve Spurrier takes jab at Lane Kiffin over recruiting requirement: "The South Carolina coach, who had a history of taking verbal jabs at Kiffin's predecessor, Phillip Fulmer, questioned whether Kiffin broke NCAA recruiting rules by contacting Tennessee recruits before he was cleared to do so.
The NCAA requires coaches to take a recruiting certification test before they're allowed to contact recruits."

Five Olympic sports cited for poor drug testing by WADA - More Sports - "Five Olympic sports cited for poor drug testing"

Trouble sports include:
Gymnastics - endorses activities without reservation, starting next couple of months
Wrestling - needing minimal changes yet
Volleyball - has since come into compliance
Handball - who cares
Modern Pentathlon - has come into compliance too

WADA said boxing, equestrian, basketball, bobsled, ice hockey, shooting, table tennis and curling have implemented "limited" testing programs. But the agency said they were not deemed non-compliant because they have committed to establish full testing programs in 2009.

The orchestra not Top 20? | Philadelphia Inquirer

The orchestra not Top 20? | Philadelphia Inquirer | 11/26/2008: "Orchestras tend to be defined by their leadership. Philadelphia (like Pittsburgh) has been in transition, which is where the lag-time factor comes in: Unless you live here, you wouldn't know that Philadelphia has had an excellent autumn season, that Dutoit is inspired in ways not apparent since his best Montreal years, and that there's been an unusually congenial succession of guest conductors."

Australia Bans Another Game - This Time it’s FEAR 2 | GameCyte

Australia Bans Another Game - This Time it’s FEAR 2 | GameCyte: "Add another one to the “Bwa haha!” column for Australian politician Michael Atkinson. The Down Under Jack Thompson has long been a thorn in the sides of Aussie gamers, with his stubborn-as-hell stance when it comes to Internet censorship and his policy that there should never be any AO games (R18 ) corrupting the Australian youth. (In Australia, AO is basically equivalent to M in the US).
Today, the lack of a suitable rating has caused yet another game to be banned from Australia’s shores: FEAR 2. The OFLC has given the game a rating of RC, which basically means it isn’t allowed to be sold or purchased in Australia. And I suspect if anyone is seen possessing the game, a Fahrenheit 451 like situation emerges where Australian fire troopers in jet packs descend on the owner’s house and cleanse the evil corrupting item with flames."
