“I want to thank my administrators at Drury, Pat Atwell and Barb Cowherd, who, on top of being great bosses, were also great mentors,” she said. “I also want to thank McNeese Athletic Director Bruce Hemphill and Senior Woman’s Administrator Bridget Martin for giving me the chance to return to McNeese.” Fitzgerald replaces Terry Gamble who left McNeese to take a similar job at Jacksonville State. “It is both great and surprising to be coming back to McNeese after five years,” said Fitzgerald, who has spent the last five years as head coach at Drury University. “A lot has changed from a facilities perspective across campus since I left, but a lot has stayed the same. McNeese is still all about a sense of family and community, and I know it is a place where I will be supported personally and professionally.” At Drury, an NCAA Division II school located in Springfield, Missouri, Fitzgerald compiled an 87-74 record in five seasons and led the Panthers to their only three winning seasons in the program’s 20-year history. Prior to her coaching stint at Drury, Fitzgerald served as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at McNeese from 2006-08. LAKE CHARLES, La. – Ashleigh Fitzgerald, who from 2006 to 2008 helped coach McNeese State volleyball to a Southland Conference East Division Championship and league postseason play each of those seasons, has been named the Cowgirls’ new head coach, Athletic Director Bruce Hemphill announced on Wednesday. Fitzgerald was responsible for recruiting Priscilla Massengale, the Houston Chronicle’s 2008 Player of the Year and 2009 Louisiana Freshman of the Year. She also mentored an ESPN the Magazine Academic All-American and the Southland Conference Scholar Athlete of the Year in Tiffany Baker as well as coaching six all-conference selections. The Chapin, South Carolina native was a member of the Ole Miss volleyball team for two years from 2004 to 2005 where she ranked fourth in the SEC in aces per game in 2004 and was fifth in the league in assists in 2005. Fitzgerald played her first two collegiate seasons at the United States Naval Academy and earned the Unsung Hero Award in 2001. “Her experience as a head coach in addition to her playing collegiately at a high level made the decision an easy one. She will bring a lot of energy to our program and has led her teams to success both in the classroom and on the court. We are confident that Ashleigh will continue that success here at McNeese. We are committed to our volleyball program and will give it every opportunity to be successful.” Fitzgerald guided the program to three Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournaments and led the team to its first conference tournament win in 2011. In 2010, she led the Panthers to a school-record 22 victories. She coached numerous all-conference selections, the school’s first D-II Daktronics All-Region honoree, and an ESPN the Magazine Academic All-Region team member. Her squads earned four AVCA team academic awards that recognizes teams that compile a minimum 3.30 team grade point average. During her previous stint at McNeese, Fitzgerald helped coach the Cowgirls to three conference tournament appearances while advancing to the semifinal match twice. The Cowgirls posted a 30-18 overall conference record in three seasons including a 12-4 mark and the Southland Conference Eastern Division title in 2006. The Cowgirls also finished second in the division in 2007. Said Hemphill: “We could not be more thrilled to announce Ashleigh Fitzgerald as our new volleyball coach at McNeese. She is a great fit for our program, school and community. With her being an assistant at McNeese in previous years, she knows Lake Charles, Southwest Louisiana and the University. Fitzgerald was an academic standout at Ole Miss, earning the SEC’s post-graduate scholarship for community service in 2006. She served as a volunteer coach for the Lady Rebels in the spring of 2006.

“We are peaceful citizens who are worthily contributing to the growth and development of post-war Liberia, to the extent that many of the towns and villages destroyed during the country’s civil crisis have returned to their pre-war status.” The speaker was evangelist Prince Y. Johnson who yesterday angrily reacted to a recent newspaper report stating that “all citizens in Nimba County were manufacturing arms in the county.”Senator Prince Y. Johnson (PYJ) chairs the county’s Legislative Caucus. He is also a born-again Evangelist preaching the Gospel with special emphasis on the peace and stability of the nation.In his strongly worded reaction given in an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer yesterday, Senator Johnson termed the report as “diabolical lies against peaceful Nimbaians, intentionally (manufactured) by agents of the devil to tarnish the good reputation of the citizens of Nimba County.”Senator Johnson, however, commended President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for her regime’s tolerance of press freedom, but added, “This freedom has often been abused by agents of the devil who conceived evils against the state.”“The report of this newspaper is intended to scare away investors and paint citizens of the county black in the eyes of other Liberians and the international community. “They are doing this because Nimba is [endowed with immense resources and investment opportunities], PYJ said. In its Wednesday, May 27 edition Vol. 3, No. 199, a local newspaper (not the Daily Observer) quoted the chairman of the Community Watch Forum, Isaac Nyenati Kaffey, as alleging that citizens of Nimba County are presently involved with the production of arms in the county.According to the newspaper, Mr. Kaffey allegedly told a reporter of the paper that small arms being used by armed robbers in various communities have been produced in Nimba County. He did not say specifically in which part of the county the arms are being manufactured, but insinuated that citizens of the county are involved in the mass production of firearms.Based on that assertion by Mr. Kaffey as reported by the newspaper, Senator Johnson challenged the national security apparatus to compel Mr. Kaffey to locate the site of the manufacturing plant where the arms are produced, and directly identify citizens that he claims are involved in the arms production.“This is not just about Nimba,” the Senator insisted, “but the allegation undermines the security of the state because this allegation is baseless, since Mr. Kaffey of the so called Community Watch Forum did not indicate the exact location of the manufacturing plant, nor could he identify any one of the citizens who is involved with the deal,” Senator Johnson added.Nimba County, he said, is in the north-central portion of Liberia. It is one of 15 counties that comprise six districts the first-level of administrative division in the nation. Sanniquellie serves as the capital with the area of the county measuring 11,551 square kilometers (4,460 sq mi), the largest in the nation. The 2008 Census put the population of Nimba County at 462,026, making it the second most populous county in Liberia after Montserrado County.With this geographical description of the county, Senator Johnson wants to know, in which part of the county is the manufacturing plant located. He also wants to know the specific number of citizens involved in the arms manufacturing, since the writer of the article quoted Mr. Kaffey as saying that Nimba citizens were manufacturing arms.He then wondered what Mr. Kaffey was thinking about when he made such an unsubstantiated claim against the peaceful people of Nimba without citing any proof of his allegation.Meanwhile, Evangelist Johnson has challenged authorities of the various security agencies to seek further clarifications from Mr. Kaffey about the reasons for his “baseless allegation.”“Why would anyone want to manufacture arms in Nimba? What is the reason and who those behind the idea, if any are?” he asked. Senator Johnson wants national security to probe the report and make the findings public to shame those that are undermining the peace and stability of the country.Nimbaians, irrespective of status, he said are “peaceful and hard-working, whose only thought is to see the county and the country developed, but not destroyed.”Himself, a former leader of the erstwhile Independent National Patriotic Front of Liberia; a rebel sprinter group opposed the leadership of the National Patriotic Front of Liberia (NPFL), captured former President Samuel K. Doe, and tortured him to death.He is now a senator and Evangelist heading the newly constructed Chirst Chapel Church in Monrovia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
“Make no mistake: This was a bigger game for us than it is for the Patriots,” he told reporters in a lengthy session in an equipment closet off the visitors’ locker room. “We had a chance to establish something. I’m just frustrated. I thought we could put together a better effort.”Jones said he got what he expected out of the defense and seemed willing to give the offense a bit of a pass because of the foul weather. But the special teams came under scrutiny for allowing a blocked punt, missing a field goal and blowing 20 yards of field position with a penalty on another punt.“Special teams is 100 percent coaching,” he said.INJURIESDallas: S Jeff Heath was checked out on the sideline after delivering a hit on Meyers in the third quarter.UP NEXTCowboys: Host the Bills on Thanksgiving.Patriots: Visit the Texans next Sunday.

Coming away with wins is enough for him right now.“I think every team develops at different times,” Brady said. “I think we take the challenges as they come and try to do the best we can. … I’m happy we came away with more points than them.”Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said the wet and windy conditions on the field, which included temperatures that dipped into the 30s, played a factor.“Obviously no excuses. But the weather had an impact on both offenses,” he said. “A lot of balls on the ground, a lot of balls going off receivers’ hands. I thought our guys handled it better and better as the game went on.”ADVERTISEMENT New England got help from a special teams play to set up Harry’s TD.Matt Slater blocked Chris Jones’ punt on the Dallas 30, and Nate Ebner recovered on the 12. Two plays later, Brady hit Harry in the front of the end zone for a 10-yard touchdown — the first of Harry’s NFL career.“I’m definitely not satisfied yet,” Harry said. “Anybody who knows me knows I’m about to turn it up a notch. To set the bar higher. I’m ready to get back to work.”Prescott was intercepted by Stephon Gilmore on Dallas’ ensuring drive. The Patriots took over on the Dallas 29, but quickly went three-and-out. They settled for a 44-yard field goal by Nick Folk that made it 10-0.RECORD WATCHHarry became the 75th player to catch a touchdown pass from Brady, extending an NFL record.

Cooper was held without a catch for the first time as a member of the Cowboys.Dallas entered the game averaging 444.6 yards per game on offense and had the league’s best passing attack, averaging 312.7 yards.But the Cowboys looked pedestrian for most of the first half opposite New England’s top-ranked defense, which came in allowing just 152.6 passing yards.The Patriots focused on taking away two of Prescott’s favorite targets in Cooper and tight end Jason Witten. Prescott threw in their direction just twice in the opening half, while mostly checking down to short passes.Elliott helped the Cowboys keep the ball moving, but his long gains were limited as New England stacked the box on first and second down.“It was frustrating,” Elliott said. “Just gotta find a way to score.”Dallas finally found some traction trailing 13-6 in the fourth quarter when Prescott connected with Randall Cobb for a 59-yard gain to get the Cowboys to the New England 25.The drive stalled on the Patriots 11 and the Cowboys settled for a 29-yard field goal by Brett Maher.

0Shares0000Kabras Sugar players celebrate after winning the fifth place trophy (plate) at the Prinsloo Sevens in Nakuru. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 9- Sepetuka Sevens champions Kabras Sugar have put up a target of getting to the final of this weekend’s Christie Sevens at the RFUEA Ground in Nairobi, the penultimate leg of the National Sevens Circuit which grinds to a halt in Kisumu on October 22.Kabras sit second in the Series standings, five points behind leaders and defending champions Homeboyz RFC who have found it hard to replicate their form from last season when they reached all finals winning three of them. Kabras head coach Charles Cardovillis hopes to take advantage of any slip ups by the Deejays and head to Kisumu above them with hope of a first ever circuit trophy.“It is obviously a small difference and the target is to ensure that at least we finish higher than them (Homeboyz). That would be ideal for us. For everyone who goes to a tournament the aim is to win it. For us it is more or less the same but once we get to the final, that would be a good outing for us,” Cardovillis told Capital Sport.Kabras managed maximum points from the last leg hosted in Eldoret by the Deejays their first of the season. Previously, their best performance was at the Kabeberi Sevens where they lost out in the play-off.For the Christie Sevens, Kabras are pooled in a tight group that has host team and Cardovillis’ former employers Kenya Harlequins, Strathmore and Mombasa RFC.“That’s a very tricky pool but we always anticipated it after winning in Eldoret. Playing against Quins will not be easy and Strathmore as well who have already beaten us once this season. Our immediate target going there is to get off the pools,” the tactician offered.“It will mostly be about mental preparedness and that is a bit we really need to work on well,” he added.Cardovillis has hinted he will retain most of the players who played in Eldoret while welcoming back Ugandan Philip Wokarach who helped his country win the Africa Sevens in Kampala over the weekend, qualifying for the World Cup and Commonwealth Games.Kabras takes on Nondies during the Kabeberi Sevens in Nairobi. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“I would not want to tamper with a winning side so we will retain almost the same team. We will look at Philip when he returns this week, check on his fitness and if he is good to go, will be a great addition to the team,” the coach noted.Meanwhile, leaders Homeboyz will not be resting easy with their place at the top clearly threatened. Head coach Paul Murunga has sounded a war cry saying his charges will pour out their all to protect their territory and ensure they head to Kisumu still at the top.For Christie Sevens, they will headline Pool C having finished third at their home tournament in Eldoret and will face Western Bulls, Mwamba RFC and Nondies.On paper, it looks like an easy pool for the defending champions but Murunga who insists his side is not under pressure says it will not be a walk in the park.“That is a very tricky pool especially with Bulls and Mwamba. But I am usually happy when we face a tough pool because it gives us a good headstart and we end up performing well especially in the knockout phases,” Murunga said.Homeboyz take on Mwamba RFC during the Prinsloo Sevens in Nakuru. The two meet again at the Christie Sevens after being pooled together. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluHe has urged his charges to maintain consistency with his minimum target being a top three finish which guarantee his side remains top.In the other pools for this weekend’s cracker of a tournament, a resurgent Impala RFC who lost the final to Kabras in Eldoret will headline Pool B where they square out with Nakuru RFC, Mean Machine and Kisii.Impala are placed third in the rankings, with 61 points, seven off leaders Homeboyz.
