Friedman Tennis Center. No. 3 TCU beat No. 28 Oklahoma State 4-3 in the championship match of the ITA Kick-Off Weekend.TCU is now headed back to the ITA Team Indoor National Championship for the second straight year.“We had some guys really step up today,” TCU head coach David Roditi said. “Today I feel like we learned so much and we were able to get the win.”Roditi said last year’s experience in the Indoor Championship helps give the team confidence going forward.“I think last year helps,” Roditi said. “I mean we can’t do any worse, right? We lost all three matches.”The berth to nationals did not come easy. The Frogs had to fight from behind after losing the doubles match point.Oklahoma State’s Temur Ismailov and Lucas Gerch beat TCU’s Guillermo Nunez and Jerry Lopez to start the match. Lukas Finzelberg and Jurence Mendoza finished off Alex Rybakov and Reece Stalder to give the Cowboys an early 1-0 lead.The No. 4 player in the country, Cameron Norrie, got the Frogs back on track.

Ironically, Jerry Lopez and Lucas Gerch were locked up 3-3 in the third set when all eyes fell on them.Jerry Lopez was able to will TCU to victory behind the support of the Horned Frog faithful. Lopez won the match 7-6, 5-7, 6-3, clinching a birth to the ITA Team Indoor National Championship.“It was unbelievable,” Lopez said. “Getting out of there with a victory was huge, and you feel such a relief after that.”Lopez said the most important thing was to stay calm — not exactly the easiest thing to do during the biggest match of your career.But Lopez was able to control his nerves and perform under the pressure.“I’m proud of Jerry,” Roditi said. “He just kept hanging in there. There were times where he didn’t feel very good and he came back. He kept sticking mentally in the match.”Coach Roditi said the team will practice only indoors for the next two weeks in preparation for the tournament.The ITA Team Indoor National Championship will be held on Feb. 12-15 in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Cardinals QB Kyler Murray says he’ll kneel during national anthem

first_imgIntent on being a solution to the problem of systemic racism in society, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray said he will join the growing list of NFL players who plan to kneel during the playing of the national anthem this season.Several players are planning to kneel amid protests in the U.S., and Murray will join that group. “Yeah, I’ll be kneeling,” the 2019 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year told reporters Wednesday during a Zoom conference. “I stand for what’s right, that’s the bottom line. I call it like I see it. I’ll definitely be taking a knee.”MORE: Trump says Kaepernick should get another shot if he can still playMurray also praised the swarm of peaceful protests around the country sparked by the death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25, calling them a step toward ending racial injustice and police brutality.”There is a lot of hate in this world, but at the same time, what’s happening and what we’re seeing right now, it’s huge,” he said. “I don’t condone rioting and stuff like that, but the peaceful protests, I think they’re great, they’re amazing. Whether it takes years, I feel like we’re getting there. At least we’re making a step towards it.””We’re all human, and we should all be treated equally.”— Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) June 17, 2020As a high-profile black quarterback, Murray added that he believes he bears a responsibility to be more vocal on issues such as social justice and race relations than he was as a rookie.”If it’s wrong, I’m going to say it’s wrong. I feel like, personally, it’s on everybody to hold each other accountable, but more so from me,” he said.KAEPERNICK TIMELINE: How protests started a movement in the NFL”If you’ve got white friends that feel this certain type of way, don’t understand what’s going on, it’s on me to educate them as well as black, Hispanic, any other ethnicity. “We’re all human and I feel like we should all be treated equally. I don’t get the debate on why anyone shouldn’t be treated equally because of their skin color. It doesn’t make sense to me, but it is what it is right now and we’re trying to fix it.”Murray’s comments came on the same day the Cardinals announced they will make June 19 — the day slaves were officially declared free by the U.S. government following the end of the Civil War — a permanent holiday within the organization.The 2019 No. 1 overall draft pick is one of several Cardinals players, including longtime wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, who have spoken out about Floyd’s killing and race relations in recent weeks. He is also the second starting quarterback to publicly state he will be kneeling during the anthem, joining the Browns’ Baker Mayfield, a close friend of Murray and a former college teammate at Oklahoma.last_img read more

Army looks to resurrect Pattaya sports stadium project

first_imgThe military pulled out after the 2014 coup and has not returned to complete the work, leaving the project in a state of limbo.The Eastern National Stadium development on Soi Chaiyapruek 2 was slated to include a 20,000-seat football stadium, indoor arena, competition-sized swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts and 10 practice fields spread over 254 rai.The plan was for it to serve as a hub for sports and recreational activities on the Eastern Seaboard. To date, however, only Phase 1 – the indoor arena and a section of concrete terracing for 5,000 seats at the football field – were completed, in 2010.Still outstanding are the other 15,000 seats, the swimming pool, grandstands and roof – about 536 million baht in investment.Begun in 2009, then-mayor Itthiphol Kunplome’s pet project saw grass planted and construction of about 90 million baht in work completed before a series of design and construction delays halted proceedings.Itthiphol then diverted 140 million baht in stadium-construction funds to beautify the landscape on Pattaya Beach, work that was wiped out less than a year later when the mayor pushed through a plan to widen Beach Road.With less money to build, city hall demanded cost cuts and price concessions from the contractor.  Claiming the delays actually made the job unprofitable, the contractor quit, leaving the city with no money and no company to build Itthiphol’s dream stadium.City officials said they searched for a construction company to do the job at a lower price but, apparently, couldn’t find anyone but military conscripts to do the work on their budget.The army was supposed to provide labor, equipment, and construction materials with Pattaya pledging to pay the military 536.5 million baht for construction.  The army said it would begin construction within a month and finish the project within three years and four months.The army staged its coup two months later and the contract fell by the wayside.Pattaya City Council Chairman Anan Angkanawisai stated the obvious for the press that a lot of money has been invested in the project with no result.The council will look again at the project to see if it can be jump-started again. After taking on street vendors, property encroachers and speedboat captains, the military is ready to tackle Pattaya’s biggest white elephant: the 20,000 seat football stadium that still isn’t finished after eight years in the works.Col. Popanan Leuangphanuwat, Deputy Commander of the 14th Military Circle and members of Pattaya Council paid a visit to inspect the half finished 20,000 seated football stadium on Soi Chaiyapruek 2.Col. Popanan Leuangphanuwat, deputy commander of the 14th Military Circle, led an inspection of the Eastern National Stadium project Jan. 12, following up orders from the junta to investigate reasons for delays in major public works projects.Ironically, it was the army that dropped the ball in completing the 774-million-baht complex.The football stadium (top right) was to be the focal point of the sports complex scheme which also included the National Indoor Arena, Olympic sized swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts and 10 practice fields.
