Success Story!

first_imgWhen Shelby Rupp came to Batesville High School, I don’t know who talked her into playing basketball, but it certainly changed her life.  The EIAC’s most dominate defensive player her senior year was invited to play basketball at Thomas More University in Northern Kentucky.One hundred and fifteen wins and 3 losses later, the starting forward for the Saints women’s basketball team is one of the mainstays on the 24-0 roster.  Shelby is averaging 11 points per game and almost 7 rebounds per game.  They will enter the tournament as probably a #2 seed.  They are hoping to win their second national championship in the past 4 years.  Some of this information was obtained from a recent article in the Herald Tribune.Good luck to Shelby and the Saints as they begin their run for a national championship!last_img read more

The next Madrid project

first_imgBut the center forward is missing, Lewandowski, Luis Suárez or Cavani That is able to make 30 goals per season. That position has been covered in Madrid by Cristiano and Benzema in the last decade, and now only by the French, but it is proving that it is not enough. More names will have to come out for the near future, but the one that hits the most now is that of Haaland, which in the next winter market, that of 2021, you can leave Borussia with a clause of 75 million. It’s a good chance.Along the way are names like those of Reinier, Jovic, Asensio, Rodrygo, Brahim and company. footballers who can still hit the table and break into world stars or at least serve as complement players … Together they form the next Madrid. In the offices of the Bernabéu one works at that short-medium term. And it is done with the serenity that gives the policy of young signings that has been followed in recent years. The problem is that you have to replace, or make a transition, about a team that has been able to win Four Champions in five years. An almost impossible job. There are young people who are showing that they have projection to be part of an eleven guarantees. The two sides are covered with Achraf. He has this season of assignment in Borussia Dortmund, where he is being one of the stars (even in the Bundesliga, as happened in the past with Carvajal in Leverkusen). The Moroccan is now 21 years old. And Mendy, how difficult is putting Marcelo this season, is now 24. For him it would be the other side, the right.Possible eleven to five years seen … In the center of the field Casemiro (28) seems to have fuel for five years. And with him Valverde (21) will be much more shot at the highest level. The good news for Madrid is being Odegaard, now figure of LaLiga by the hand of the Real Sociedad after a time of uncertainty and several assignments to the Dutch League. You have now Odegaard twenty-one years.In the front there seems to be many more unknowns, and they are the positions that give titles because that is where the potential offensive is. Vinicius (now 19 years old) will definitely be done as a player by then. But in the Madrid strategy there is a code name, it is that of Mbappé. He has a contract until 2022 with the PSG. More and more signals are emitted from there that he is not at ease. And the road map of the white entity is to undertake its signing in the summer of 2021, when only one contract is subtracted and it is a necessity for the PSG to sell it or let it go for free the following summer.INA FASSBENDER & nbsp; (AFP) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Haaland, in Borussia.INA FASSBENDER (AFP)center_img Do an exercise that could do any sports director of an entity. Do it with the template of Madrid. With so much player, up to seven, that are or exceed 30 years (Modric (34), Ramos (33), Benzema (32), Marcelo (31) and Bale, Kroos and Nacho (who are 30), what will the short-term type team be like, in four or five years? By then, any of those players who exceed the thirty They would have a hard time being a starter. Even Hazard, doubly operated from ankle And now with 30 years, I would have a hard time.last_img read more
