BUENA VISTA, Va. — The University of Washington and Lee volleyball team lost in three sets to crosstown rivals University of Southern Virginia (25-16, 25-21, 25-17).

The Knights (8-6) tied the non-conference season streak with the Generals (7-7) in the barn on Tuesday night after the Blue and White won the first meeting in five sets at the W&L Invitational on September 10 .

SVU took a 6-1 lead in Game 1 with four kills and two serving aces for the home side. W&L scored five straight to make it 18-14 in favor of the Knights, but two more SVU three-point runs prevented the comeback and secured the first series.

In the second set, the Generals had the 12-7 advantage, but SoVa fought back to tie it at 20, then scored five in a row after a blue-and-white point to win the set 25-21.

Three streaks of four or more runs by the Knights catapulted SVU to match point and snapped a five-game skid dating back to 2019. Tonight’s victory for Southern Virginia marks just the second victory in the 31 matchups between the two programs.

Avery Myer (New York, NY / Poly Prep Country Day School) led WLU in the killings and Ashley Webb (Thousand Oaks, Calif. Westlake) recorded three aces and added 13 assists.

Caroline Gard (Naperville, Ill./Benet Academy) landed 12 digs on Tuesday and needs just seven digs to sit atop the program’s record books for career digs.

WACO, TX- The No. 14-ranked Baylor Volleyball Program pulled off a three-set sweep over Sam Houston to start day two of the Baylor Classic, then swept to close it against McNeese.

The Bears (10-2) dispatched Sam Houston State in three sets (25-22, 25-11, 25-21) to extend their straight set winning streak to 22, including 18 at Ferrell.

Senior Medium Blocker Kara McGhee led the Bears with 13 eliminations and 8 blocks in the game with Sam Houston, while Lauren Briseno driven with 11 digs and setter Averi Carlson collected 31 assists.

Against McNeese, the Bears again limited him to three sets to win their eighth straight sweep and 25e consecutive set, 25-18, 25-18, 25-17.

BU was led by Allie Sczech and Riley Simpson against the Cowgirls, both with double-digit wins, with Carlson registering 36 assists, Briseño with 11 digs and Kara McGhee counting eight blocks.

Baylor is now on a nine-game winning streak overall and has extended its home streak to 12 straight, since Nov. 6, 2021 against Texas.

BU went 3-0 in the Baylor Classic to take the all-time home tournament record to 46-6.

For all three games, Kara McGhee had 32 kills at 3.56 kills per set for a .414 offense percentage, coupled with 20 blocks at 2.22 blocks per set to earn his tournament MVP honors. Briseño was named the tournament’s top defender for her 37 digs at 4.11 digs per set while Carlson was named All-Tournament for her 108 assists.

HOW DID IT HAPPEN
Sam Houston
Set 1

In a thrilling first set that never saw SHSU advance more than three, the Bears took care of business, 25-22, against the Bearcats. After Sam Houston took a late set lead, 20-18, a power block from the McGhee sisters, the tide turned in favor of Baylor. The Bears went on a 5-2 run closing the set with a kill from Elise McGhee.

Set 2
Kara McGhee kicked off the set for the Bears with a raucous kill, starting a 5-0 run for BU. McGhee then got his hands on four of 10 blocks for Baylor in the opening set. In an easy back and forth, the Bears won the set 25-11 with Lauren Briseno closing the set with an ace to give BU the 2-0 lead.

Set 3

In a neck and neck third set, the Bearcats took a late lead to move up 21-17. The Bears, who were never counted out, went 8-0; filled with two kills each of Kara McGhee and Cassie Davis in addition to two aces of Mallory Talbert take the set and the match.

HOW DID IT HAPPEN
McNeese
Set 1

Starting hot was Kara McGhee, registering a kill to start the match. The Bears found themselves just behind around the six-point mark, but once Riley Simpson got the kill to make it 8-7, BU no longer trailed. In this first frame alone, Mallory Talbert caught six kills from six attempts while Simpson had five from seven. Dominating at 19-12 with five different Baylor players recording wins, McNeese called timeout. It was too late for the Cowgirls to save the set, with the frame ending at 25-18 thanks to an ace from Carlson.

Set 2

Baylor never trailed in the second set, leading throughout. Just as she finished set one, she started set two: Averi Carlson served as an ace for the Bears. An attacking error from BU caught McNeese at 4-4, but no further. Elise McGhee pushed the Bears in front, then a kill from Talbert and a block from Carlson and Kara McGhee forced a Cowgirl timeout at 11-6. Off the break, Simpson and Kara had a block. Despite their best efforts, McNeese couldn’t overcome the brick wall the Bears were building at the net. They would call another timeout at 20-14 and the set would end in favor of Baylor on a Sophie Keene ace, 25-18.

Set 3

Up two, the third set saw Baylor comfortable behind Simpson. The freshman started the tee with a kill and recorded six kills out of 12 attempts in the frame. She also had three digs and an assist. The Bears were tied with the Cowgirls twice in the set, but not enough to hurt the momentum built up. Lauren Briseno served back-to-back aces early on at 8-3 and 9-3, then Talbert, Sczech and Elise McGhee each killed to propel the Bears to 12-3. Without looking back, BU charged forward and ended the set on an attacking error from McNeese, 25-17.

NOTABLE

  • The Bears have won 25 straight sets. The last time BU won 20 or more straight sets was Nov 13, 2021-Dec. 9, 2021 (20).
  • Baylor concluded the non-conference schedule, going 7-2 in non-conference tournaments this season.
  • The head coach Ryan McGuyre is just one win away from his 500e career victory.

Roger Federer announces his retirement; The 20-time Grand Slam champion will contest the Laver Cup as the final event https://manifest-angel.com/roger-federer-announces-his-retirement-the-20-time-grand-slam-champion-will-contest-the-laver-cup-as-the-final-event/ Thu, 15 Sep 2022 14:30:32 +0000 https://manifest-angel.com/roger-federer-announces-his-retirement-the-20-time-grand-slam-champion-will-contest-the-laver-cup-as-the-final-event/ Roger Federer is retiring from professional tennis aged 41 after a series of knee surgeries, capping a career in which he won 20 Grand Slam titles, finished five seasons at number one and helped create a golden era in men’s tennis with his rivals Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. “As many of you know, the […]]]>

Roger Federer is retiring from professional tennis aged 41 after a series of knee surgeries, capping a career in which he won 20 Grand Slam titles, finished five seasons at number one and helped create a golden era in men’s tennis with his rivals Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

“As many of you know, the past three years have presented me with challenges in the form of injuries and surgeries,” Federer said in a post on his social media accounts on Thursday. “I’ve worked hard to get back to full competitive form. But I also know my body’s capabilities and limitations, and his message to me lately has been clear.

“I am 41 years old. I have played more than 1500 matches in 24 years. Tennis has treated me more generously than I could have ever dreamed of, and now I have to recognize when it is time to end my career competitive.”

Federer’s 20 Grand Slam titles rank third all-time among male players behind contemporaries Nadal (22) and Djokovic (21).

Federer said he intended to continue playing tennis, “but not in Grand Slams or on the tour”. He hadn’t played a competitive match since reaching the quarter-finals at Wimbledon in 2021 and announced in mid-August that he had undergone further knee surgery.

But he appeared at an event marking Center Court’s 100th anniversary at the All England Club in July and said he hoped to return to play there “one more time”. He had also announced that he would return to tournament play at the Swiss Indoors in October.

“It’s a bittersweet decision because I will miss everything the tour has given me,” Federer said. “But at the same time, there’s so much to celebrate. I consider myself one of the luckiest people on Earth. I was given a special talent to play tennis, and I did that at a level I never imagined, for much longer than I ever thought possible.”

Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Andy Murray are set to play together for the first time when they face off September 23-25 ​​as part of Team Europe at the Laver Cup in London. Named after Australian great Rod Laver, the three-day team event, hosted by Federer’s management company, pits six of Europe’s top players against six from the rest of the world.

Federer walks away with 103 tour-level titles on his substantial resume and 1,251 singles match wins, both behind Jimmy Connors in the Open era, which began in 1968. Federer’s records include being the oldest No. 1 in the history of the ATP rankings – he returned to the top spot at 36 in 2018 – and most consecutive weeks there; his total of weeks was eclipsed by Djokovic.

When Federer won his first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon in 2003, the men’s record for most was held by Pete Sampras, who won his 14th at the US Open the previous year in what turned out to be the last game of the American’s career.

Federer would go on to blow well beyond that, finishing with 20 winning eight championships at Wimbledon, six at the Australian Open, five at the US Open and one at the French Open. His 2009 trophy at Roland Garros allowed Federer to complete a career Grand Slam.

His serve, forehand, footwork and attacking style will be remembered forever. His matches against young rivals Nadal, 36, and Djokovic, 35, were also unforgettable, both of whom equaled and then surpassed Federer’s Slam tally and still win titles in the sport’s four biggest tournaments. .

“I had the chance to play so many epic matches that I will never forget,” Federer said in Thursday’s announcement. Addressing his “competitors on the court”, but not by name, he wrote: “We pushed each other and together we took tennis to new levels”.

Federer and his wife Mirka, also a tennis player; they met as athletes at the Olympics – have two sets of twins.

LIVERPOOL, England — Joel Matip scored a late goal for Liverpool to secure victory over Ajax in Champions League Group A on matchday two.

Jurgen Klopp’s side started the game well, then fell apart before their perseverance paid off just before added time when the centre-back headed in to put his side in front.

Quick reaction

Liverpool are rewarded for their perseverance

Jurgen Klopp described Liverpool’s 4-1 defeat at Napoli last week as the worst game of his seven-year tenure and the Reds responded with a better performance against Ajax, ultimately rewarded for their persistence in a 2- 1. Liverpool deserved the 17th-minute lead given by Mohamed Salah’s 15th Champions League goal at Anfield – surpassing Steven Gerrard’s record – and could easily have been further ahead by the time Ajax fought back.

Mohammed Kudus took his goal superbly against the run of play and Liverpool visibly lost confidence afterwards. Still, despite not being at their best, the hosts kept going and found the breakthrough a minute from time as Joel Matip headed for Kostas Tsimikas’ corner. Klopp looked more relieved than exuberant at the confirmation that the ball had crossed the line. It’s only Liverpool’s fourth win in nine games in all competitions, but it will look like a big step in the right direction.

Matip capitalizes where Van Dijk could not

Liverpool finished the game with 23 shots but the highest individual number came from an unlikely source: Virgil van Dijk. Ajax’s vulnerability to set pieces – or really any ball high in the box – was evident and the Liverpool centre-back never had better luck than when he was unmarked by delivery from Trent Alexander-Arnold in the 35th minute.

He forced Remko Pasveer into a fine save and worked the Ajax goalkeeper again two minutes before the break when he met Tsimikas’ delivery from the opposite side. Van Dijk managed four efforts in all – but it was Matip who did well – after missing a previous chance – beating Pasveer for his third Champions League goal and first since December 2013 for Schalke. It was also his first game-winning goal since joining Liverpool in 2016.

A sense of deja vu over Liverpool’s defensive weaknesses

The cancellation of last weekend’s Premier League matches due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II may have given Liverpool more time to work on their defence, but the goal they conceded here had a distinct feelings of déjà vu and a failure to learn from past mistakes. Not for the first time this season, Alexander-Arnold was deemed insufficient. Steven Berghuis drifted behind him to remove the ball where Kudus had time to turn around and unleash a superb effort which crashed into Alisson’s crossbar.

The goal bore marked similarities to Jadon Sancho’s first game when Manchester United beat Liverpool 2-1 last month; after another foray down the right from Liverpool, the United winger received the ball in the box and was an age to find the net. Liverpool have finally crossed the line, but the pattern of vulnerability will not have gone unnoticed by their rivals. Without a game until October 1, Klopp will have plenty of time to think about a better way to solve it.

Highlights and Moments

Matip provided the late drama at Anfield.


After the game: What managers, players said

“He doesn’t hesitate, huh? He doesn’t wait long. When he finds a date for that, he can call me. He forgets that in big sports in America, these players have four-month breaks so they are quite happy that they can do some sport during these breaks. It’s completely different in football. What can I say? Imagine that: United players, Liverpool players, Everton players together in one team. It’s not a national team. North versus south. And all the guys from London together, Arsenal, Tottenham, great. Did he really say it? Interesting. – Klopp at the suggestion of the Chelsea owner Todd Boehly from a Premier League All-Star game North vs South
