first_imgThe College GameDay crew in Columbus Ohio.ESPN College GameDayAfter serving as the host of ESPN’s College GameDay for 25 years, Chris Fowler has moved on to focus on his duties as play-by-play announcer for ABC/ESPN’s prime time Saturday night games. While Rece Davis should fill in admirably, GameDay definitely won’t be the same. To pay tribute to Fowler, GameDay put together an amazing feature piece, narrated by Tom Rinaldi. After the piece, Fowler joined his old GameDay crew, and Davis, on stage. Things got pretty emotional when Fowler discussed his relationship with Lee Corso, who he spent all 25 years with on the show. He even gave Corso a kiss on the cheek.It is getting a bit dusty in here this morning. We’ll miss you, Chris.last_img read more

Ohio State womens track dashes to 2nd consecutive Big Ten championship

The Ohio State women’s track and field team won their conference championship for the second year in a row on Sunday, successfully defending their title at the 2012 Big Ten Outdoor Championships. The championships were held in Madison, Wis., on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. OSU was victorious on the women’s side, scoring 117 points. On the men’s side, the Wisconsin Badgers were winners on their home track, with OSU finishing 35 points back in fourth place. The OSU women stood in sixth place following two days of competition, but they made a Sunday surge to come back to win the meet with a seven-point advantage. Nebraska and Illinois tied for second place with 110 points each. Coach Karen Dennis told The Lantern the slow start in scoring points did not concern her because of how many OSU women qualified for the finals in their events on Saturday. “We’ve been there before,” Dennis said. “We qualified 14 people, and that’s what made the difference.” Dennis said she felt the experienced team members led the way with their performances. “The keys were the seniors,” Dennis said. “They brought us here, they stepped up and deserved to take the trophy home.” OSU’s contingent of 100-meter dash runners played a major role in the victory. The Buckeyes took four of the top five places in that event, with senior Christina Manning winning in 11.49 seconds. Senior Madison McNary finished second (11.71), junior Christienne Linton (11.72) was third and sophomore Chesna Sykes came in fifth (11.80). Manning, McNary, Linton and Sykes also teamed up to win the 4×100-meter relay, setting a school and meet record with a time of 43.70. Manning also won the 100-meter hurdles (12.71) and finished second in the 200-meter dash (23.30 seconds). Junior Alexis Thomas was also an individual winner in the hammer throw. She set Big Ten meet and OSU school records in the event with a winning throw of 64.62 meters. Thomas told The Lantern she felt fortunate that her performance helped lead her team to a championship. “It’s amazing (to win the Big Ten championship),” Thomas said. “It’s a great feeling.” OSU men’s track and field was unable to match the success of its female counterparts. They finished the meet with 86 points. Wisconsin led the way with 121 points, while Nebraska (115.5 points) edged Indiana (115) for second place. Men’s interim coach Ed Beathea did not respond to The Lantern’s request for comment. The Buckeye men only had one individual event winner. That was senior Michael Hartfield, who won the individual Big Ten title in the long jump for the second consecutive year with a jump of 7.96 meters. Hartfield said in a press release that winning his event was “a blessing”. “It feels good especially after getting your behind kicked all year,” Hartfield said. “To come back at Big Tens and really make a statement, you know it feels good.” Redshirt junior distance runner Cory Leslie was a double runner-up. He finished second in the 3,000-meter steeplechase; he surpassed the previous meet record with a time of 8:32.48 but finished second to Michigan’s Craig Forys. He also finished second in the 1,500-meter run with a time of 3:42.03. The OSU track and field teams will compete next at the NCAA East Prelims, which will be held in Jacksonville, Fla., on May 24-26. read more

Upper Kenai And Russian Rivers Opened At Midnight

first_imgLegal tackle in the Russian River area is a single-hook, artificial fly, with hook gap no larger than 3/8 inch. Most anglers use a bucktail streamer fly, such as a Russian River Coho Fly, with enough weight at least 18 inches ahead of the fly so that the hook travels close to the bottom of the river. The Russian and Kenai River make up one of the most popular sport fishing spots in Alaska. Russian River is open from June 11–August 20, these waters are fly-fishing-only waters, according to the Department of Fish and Game. Fishing areas are managed between multiple different agencies who all work cooperatively to keep anglers informed of forecasts, and to ensure the areas are maintained and regulations followed. Oftentimes, best success is early morning or late evening, when the sun is not directly shining on the river. Sockeye also tend to hug the bank, and long casts are not necessary. Good numbers of fish aren’t usually present until the last week of June, according to DF&G.center_img Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Ready, set, go, it’s time to start fishing. As of midnight Tuesday, the Upper Kenai and Russian Rivers officially opened to fisherman. https://www.recreation.gov/camping/campgrounds/232213last_img read more
