Co-captain Asafa Powell looking to lead Jamaica team by example

first_img Powell then weighed in on the make-up of the 53-member team, pointing to its diversity and hailing the treatment received at their training camp in Tottori, Japan. “The team is not necessarily the strongest we have had, but it’s pretty strong all around, and not only for sprinting, but also in the field events and in the middle-distance events. Everyone’s attitude is great, and that makes a huge difference in performance as well,” said Powell. “The experience in Tottori has been very good; we have gotten the chance to focus on training. The team spirit is very good; everyone seems to be getting along quite fine, even those who didn’t use to talk much. Everyone seems to be happy and in good shape,” Powell noted. He added: “The people in Tottori have gone all out to ensure that we are happy, and they really seem to love Jamaicans here.” Jamaica ended the last World Championships with nine medals – six gold, two silver and one bronze. diverse team Newly appointed co-captain, Asafa Powell, says he is honoured with the appointment and is looking to lead by example at the fast-approaching IAAF World Championships in Beijing, China. Powell, now in his 12th year as a senior international representative for the island, received his first team captaincy, along with another veteran, Veronica Campbell-Brown, ahead of the August 22-30 championships, which takes place inside the Bird’s Nest. “Being selected as team captain is a real honour for me,” Powell told The Gleaner. “I appreciate and thank the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association for choosing me to co-captain along with Veronica Campbell-Brown, who I have a great deal of respect for.” Powell, a two-time bronze-medal winner at the World Championships, admitted that he believed his experience and relationship with his teammates played a role in his selection. “My aim, with or without the captaincy, is to lead by example, to work hard and to give my all. As it relates to the younger athletes, showing them what it takes can speak louder than any words you can say, but I have always been there if they need to talk or if they need advice, and I will continue to be there long after this training camp or the World Championships itself,” said Powell. “I do get along with everyone, and I have been there for the last 12 years, so I have seen a lot of meets, and those things may have contributed (to selection).”last_img read more

Barabina Road rehabilitation reverses

first_imgBy Devina SamarooOver $3 million worth of work now wasted with the recently rehabilitated Barabina Swamp Road in Region One (Barima -Waini) now back to a sludgy trail, and residents are peeved.Before rehabilitation, during rehbailtation and after rehabiltationThe 200-metre track is constantly inundated, and villagers have grown accustomed to slushing through the water to traverse around the region.Central Government, through its special initiative aimed at rehabilitating hinterland roads, had allocated some $3 million to fix the road.Reports indicated that the rehabilitation works were completed sometime in April. During an interview with Guyana Times, Regional Chairman Brentnol Ashley explained that the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) had no knowledge of the undertaking until after works had commenced.He claimed that the Regional Executive Officer Leslie Wilburg, who has responsibility for the awarding of contracts for the region, was aware that the Public Infrastructure Ministry had committed financial resources for the rehabilitation but failed to inform the council. Ashely said the REO took it upon himself to sole source an inexperienced contractor to carry out the project, and posited that because of the substandard works, the road is back to square one.“He went around to do the road by sole-sourcing someone who has no engineering idea or technical idea of road construction… when we found out, even though as an RDC and as Regional Chairman, I highlighted that, although I am not an expert in civil engineering, I believe that if we find ways to open avenues for water to have a free flow out of the creek that leads to Barabina through the Kumaka area, it would help to alleviate the flooding that is taking place and damaging the road; and then we can think about rehabilitation with construction,” the Regional Chairman explained.He posited that the entire undertaking lacked future vision to help ensure the problem is solved and only focused temporary solutions.Shortly after government announced that the rehabilitation works were completed, a letter to the editor appeared in one of the daily locals, complaining about the substandard work done.The writer explained that two vehicles were stuck in the road and had to be pulled out by a tractor, and by a pick-up.Currently, attempts are being made to engage the Public Infrastructure Ministry in an effort to garner assistance and advice on the way forward.With the rainy season ongoing, residents are worried about the extent to which the heavy showers will compound the situation.In an effort to provide some relief, the RDC provided the leaders of Barabina some resources to rehabilitate a dilapidated catwalk which can now be utilised as an alternative route to traverse the area.last_img read more

WAEC Exams Deferred to Next Year?

first_imgThe Daily Observer has reliably learnt that the administration of this year’s tests to students across the country by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) has been deferred to next year. Attempts by this newspaper to get comments from the Monrovia National Office of the West African Examination Council (WAEC) over the weekend were unsuccessful.However, head of WAEC Monrovia office, John Y. Gayvolor, Sr., told the Daily Observer via mobile phone on Saturday that his team of administrators is committed to administering the test, but did not say when. “We are still keeping to the exam schedule as everything is being done to avoid the reoccurrence of what we just experienced leading to the leakage of the tests,” Mr. Gayvolor told our reporter and subsequently hung up.Meanwhile, it has been frequently reported over the weekend that the exams would be administered next year since the Monrovia office failed to raise the US$300,000 required to reprint copies of the exams.As the test was already scheduled for last month, the euphoria of thousands of 12th graders died down when it was announced that the WAEC examination is cancelled, “because test materials have been stolen from their location at the Konola SDA high school campus.”Following the stunning disclosure, the Ministry of Education (MOE) said the new dates are from June 27 to July 1. MOE Director of Communications, J. Maxim Bleetahn, told the Daily Observer that issues relative to administering the exams would be discussed on Wednesday, June 8. Mr. Bleetahn, too, did not elaborate when asked whether the exams have been annulled for this year. However, a number of 12th graders interviewed by the Daily Observer expressed frustration because of the “insurmountable problems” facing their education sojourn.Up to press time last night, WAEC could not say whether any date has been set to administer the exams, or wether the exams have been postponed to next year due to “financial constraints.” As for the reportedly leaked subjects, including mathematics, physics, and chemistry, sources informed this newspaper that new evidence has been unearthed linking some highly placed individuals in the education system to the “exam fraud.”The test papers were kept at the Konola SDA high school campus in Margibi County. The MOE said it was burglarized by some unidentified persons.Although a leak of exam papers is not a new phenomenon, many parents told the Daily Observer that they did not believe enough was done to secure the test papers, since WAEC and MOE authorities are aware of the potential dangers that come with administering WAEC examinations.“It seems to me that the MOE and WAEC Liberia office were not fully prepared for the exam, because I cannot imagine why they allowed such to happen,” a female parent remarked.The 9th grade examination did not start as planned because of poor management of materials at testing centers last month, and Mr. Gayvolor had earlier complained of logistical constraints.“We had logistics, traffic and other problems, and so we have been able to take note of these things and can assure the students or the public that (those problems) will not be experienced during the senior high testing,” Mr. Garvolor said recently while commenting on the 12th graders’ WAEC exams.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

DONEGAL LEAGUE – ALL THE RESULTS, REPORTS AND FIXTURES

first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEREPORTS SATURDAYOld Orchard Saturday Division One Erne Wanderers 1 Glencar Celtic 2In perfect conditions this was a very evenly contested game. The first half saw both teams playing good football. Erne nearly scored after 3 minutes when Sticky Ward headed just over from David Dolan’s corner. The rest of the half saw both defences on top with neither keeper really tested. The second half started much the same. The breakthrough came on the hour mark when Erne gave up possession easily on the right wing and with the backline out of shape the ball ended up at Malseed’s feet on the edge of the box and his shot somehow found the bottom corner. Erne should have equalised straight away when they worked the ball down the left and Ryan O’ Brien got in behind the Glencar defence but the outrushing keeper did well to block his effort. Erne were pushing hard at this stage and were suspect to counter attacks and Celtic could have caught them on two or three occasions but for last ditch tackling to save the day. On seventy minutes Erne were caught square at the back and allowed Shane Hilley through on goal and he neatly tucked it into bottom corner. Erne went all out after this and got a lucky break when given a penalty with fifteen left. Ryan O’ Brien tucked it away into bottom corner. Wanderers pushed hard for the remainder of the game but Glencar just about held on for the points. Good battling display from Erne with Diarmuid Spratt, Micheal Ward and David Dorrian showing well and a team performance from Glencar. Referee: Seamus Mc Groary.Glenea United 3 Orchard F.C. 2In wet conditions, it was the home side that came out on top with a hard earned victory over Orchard. Glenea started brightly, putting the visitors under pressure, but were unable to create any clear cut chances and were made to pay on 25 minutes when Niall Bonner picked up a loose ball on the edge of the box and chipped the ball over the keeper and into the net. Orchard almost doubled their lead when, after good work down the right, the ball was pulled back to Niall Bonner but his effort went over the bar. Glenea equalised on 36 minutes when Eugene Maguire’s cross was headed on by Dean Gallagher and Sean McBride drilled the ball home. Orchard went back in front on the stroke of half-time, when Eddie McLaughlin drove in from the left and fired the ball home from 25 yards. In the 2nd half the home side tried hard to get back into the game but were finding it difficult to create any chances. Glenea were given a lifeline on 83 minutes when, from a free-kick on the edge of the area, Shane Coll curled the ball into the corner of the net. Both sides pushed hard for a winner and in the final minute it was the home side that broke away through Michael Mc Clafferty. His through ball found Tommy Rodgers who slipped a pass to Sean McBride and he lifted it over the keeper and into the net. Best for Glenea were Shane Penrose, Michael Mc Clafferty and Sean McBride, while Niall Bonner impressed for Orchard. Referee: Kevin DohertyGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoTullyvinney Rovers 1 Arranmore United 3Arranmore came into this game unbeaten.

Arranmore scored their second goal after a long kick-out was latched onto by Gavin mc Glanaghey who tapped home .They scored their third when Mark Ward was upended in the penalty area. He got up and dispatched the penalty to the net. Tullyvinney started to play football after that and got a goal back when DavidGardiner was fouled in the box. Daniel Mc Nulty scored from the spot. The same player should have scored a second goal when he rounded the keeper but with the goal at his mercy he shot wide. Team effort from Arranmore. Best for Tullyvinney were Jason Mc Kinney, Paddy Cassidy and Adam Gardiner. Referee: Charlie Crerand Keadue Rovers Reserves 4 Glenree United Reserves 6Glenree came out winners of this entertaining fixture at Central Park on Saturday. After a good opening spell for both sides Glenree took the lead on five minutes, a header from a corner from John Mc Clafferty. However a minute later Keadue were level, David Ward striking low to the corner of the net. The home side had followed this with a good spell and created a few half chances but against the run of play Glenree went 2-1 up when Karl Mc Elhinney got on the end of a good move. After twenty five minutes Keadue should’ve been level, Luke Neely hitting the post. Glenree took advantage of that miss and were 3-1 up within minutes, Karl Mc Elhinney getting his second of the game. Keadue came back into it with Luke Neely drilling home, leaving it 3-2 on the half hour mark. Glenree went 4-2 up after thirty five minutes from an inswinging corner which hung in the wind. Damien Nelis headed home almost on the line. Close to half time Glenree were the stronger outfit and made it 5-2 when Damien Nelis scored. Into the second half, Damien Hanlon poked home following a defensive mix up on forty seven minutes. Having most of the possession Keadue continued to push forward and on seventy two minutes following a fine cross from Jack O’Brien, Donal Rodgers rose well to head home to make it 5-4. Keadue were now well on top but just couldn’t force the equaliser. Karl Mc Elhinney was proving dangerous on the break for Glenree and on eighty minutes following a breakaway he was brought down for a penalty. Damien Nelis converted to complete his hat-trick. Best for Glenree were Damien Nelis and Karl Mc Elhinney and best for Keadue were Conor Greene and David Ward. Referee: Barry Hunter.Cranford United Reserves 2 Strand Rovers 1Cranford started the game on the front foot with good chances falling to Brendan Giles and Naoise Cullen, but the Strand keeper doing well in nets pulled off two good saves. Both teams had chances with Brendan Glackin going close for the Strand from distance. Cranford took the lead after good work from Brendan Giles to turn the defender, win a penalty, and then coolly slot home. The second half started with Strand putting the pressure on and they were rewarded with Thomas Brennan finishing well to make it one each. Cranford responded well and went close through Kevin Fisher and Hughie Bradley. Cranford then took the lead after a great finish from John Mc Bride inside the box. Cranford almost got a third but Tony Boyce’s header was well saved by the keeper. Best for Cranford were John Mc Bride and Darren Lynch. Team effort by Strand.

Referee: James MalseedCT Ball Division TwoRaphoe Town 3 Letterbarrow Celtic 1On a stormy day in Raphoe the home side collected their first three points of the season. Raphoe started very well with Jamie Gallagher and Mark Bogle causing all sorts of problems for the away team. Jamie Gallagher opened the scoring after a great move involving Seamy Bogle, Mark Bogle and Paddy Gallagher. They went two up when Mark Bogle scored with a fantastic diving header. Letterbarrow got back into it when they scored on the break, after this they had a few half chances but Raphoe held firm and went three one up after Micheal Quinn was taken down in the box.

Drumbar dominated the second half and forced a free kick after some fine play from Adam Enright, Enda Brogan and Gavin Bennett. Shane Browne stepped up and dispatched a fine free kick.

Best for Drumbar were Owen Harron and Daniel Bennett.FAI Junior CupKerrykeel ’71 F.C. 2 Whitestrand United 1Kerrykeel ‘71 moved into the next round of the FAI Junior Cup with a win against local rivals Whitestrand United. The game started at a frantic pace with Kerrykeel on top. Brendan Friel saved well from his brother Johnny on ten minutes. Paddy Mc Grenaghan was pulling the strings in midfield and he went close on eighteen minutes only to see his strike go narrowly wide. Mark Friel put the ‘71 in front on twenty five minutes when he brilliantly fired home after a Cathal Martin pass. Whitestrand were trying to hit Kerrykeel on the break but Marty Mc Ateer, Seimie Friel, Patrick Mc Conigley and Mylie Mc Bride dealt well with it. Kerrykeel had chances to extend their lead but Brendan Friel was having a fine game.Whitestrand drew level in the first minute of the second half when Jerome Burke broke the offside trap and finished well.

Kerrykeel had keeper Shaun Friel to thank shortly after when he made two point blank saves to deny Burke. In the final ten minutes the ‘71 had chances through Mark Friel and Cathal Martin but again Friel came out on top.Best for Kerrykeel: Patrick Mc Grenaghan, Fergus Callaghan and Shaun FrielBest for Whitestrand: Eamonn Martin and S.P. GallagherReferee: Paddy DuffyUlster Junior CupBallybofey United 2 Lagan Harps 1Ballybofey United advanced to the next round of the Ulster Junior Cup by defeating Lagan Harps on Sunday afternoon. The Twin Towns outfit fell behind after just ten minutes when Austin Marron struck to give the Manorcunningham based outfit the lead. Ten minutes later the home side pulled level when Conor Doherty scored from twenty five yards. The game was contested in typical Cup Football fashion throughout. Ballybofey United secured the winner in the last minute of the match when Chris Darby drilled a free kick to the back of the Lagan net. Referee: Brian O’ KaneLifford Celtic 4 Kilmacrennan Celtic 0Lifford stormed out of the blocks, similar to the weather, and they raced into a two goal early lead following goals from the evergreen Patrick Sumners and a cool Johnny Robb penalty. As the first half progressed Kilmac came more into the game but never really troubled Paul Given in the Lifford goal. The second half began as the first ended with Kilmac pressing and Lifford rearguard standing strong. Lifford ensured they would progress to the next round as Declan Lafferty scored from 40 yards on 70 minutes with the Kilmac netminder caught in “no man’s land”. Kilmac continued to enjoy fine spells of possession but couldn’t find a way through a determined Lifford defence marshalled by Marcus McDonald. Patrick Sumners put a fine gloss on the result as he scored Lifford’s fourth and his second to wrap up the victory and cap a fine personal performance.Carrick United 1 Gweedore United 2(No Report Available)Milford United 8 Cootehill Harps 3Milford advanced with a comprehensive win over Cootehill Harps at the Flag Pole Pitch in Rathmullan following the switching of the game from Milford.The sides met in the FAI Junior Cup earlier this year with the Cavan team coming out on top by five goals to nil. Milford were not going to be caught cold this time round and started with great drive and energy and ended the game as a contest with four goals in the opening half hour.Milford’s first was headed home by Christy Mc Cafferty following a perfect cross from TJ Evesson. PJ Hagan rattled in the next again from an Evesson cross. Christy Mc Cafferty scored the goal of the match, following good work by Gary Merritt, Mc Cafferty took the ball 25 yards from goal to strike with power to the top corner. Gary Merritt tapped home the fourth following good work by Mc Cafferty. Cavan scored a goal before half time. Mc Cafferty struck again from 20 yards to secure his hat-trick. PJ Hagan added another and also rounded the keeper minutes later to tap in for his hat-trick. Merritt scored two further goals to complete his hat-trick also. Cootehill scored two late consolation goals and Milford finished with 10 men when Paddy Peoples received two yellow cards and was dismissed. A great team performance by Milford. Referee: Kevin Logue.Curragh Athletic 0 Carndonagh F.C. 2Last year’s winners Carndonagh F.C. progressed through the next round of the Ulster Junior Cup thanks to two goals from former Derry City player Brendan Devlin. However, although the Inishowen team probably just about deserved their win, they had another former Derry City player, goalkeeper Seamus Houghton, to thank as he had an excellent game in goals. Devlin opened the scoring on fifteen minutes when he slotted home from close range from a free kick. He then wrapped up the game with a penalty on seventy minutes. But the home team will feel they could have done better with a bit of luck, Ronnie Carlin’s header just going the wrong side of the post and Houghton making several confident saves when needed. For Curragh, Garbh Gallagher and Neil Lloyd tried hard up the middle with Carlin and Marcus Oliver always looking dangerous up front. But it was the Inishowen outfit that dealt better with the difficult weather with Curragh if anything trying to play too much football. Referee: Joe Mc Hugh.Donegal Town 1 Rathmullan Celtic 2Rathmullan came out on top in this closely fought affair at the Hospital Field. In blustery conditions, the visitors started the brighter and created some early chances. Donegal then grew into the game and came close from a David Harron effort. Goalkeeper Dermot Mc Cafferty and defensive pair JP Byrne and Barry Farragher dealt well with the fluid Rathmullan attack. After the break Donegal grew in belief and that belief was rewarded when Clint Walsh fired home in the sixtieth minute. Good work out wide from David Harron and David Bustard created the chance which Walsh buried into the bottom corner. Rathmullan pushed forward in search of an equaliser and got their reward when Eamonn Sheridan nodded home from a corner. The winner was scored in the second half of extra time when Darragh Patton headed home at the near post from a corner. Ryan Earley went close for Donegal late on but fired his effort just over. Good team performances from both sides.Cranford United 4 Dunkineely Celtic 0Cranford got their Ulster Cup campaign off to an excellent startagainst Dunkineely Celtic with a 4-0 victory. Arthur Lynch stabbed home fromclose range after Philip Buchanan’s effort was cleared off the line.They made it two nil on 40 minutes when Kyle Black headed home a MichaelCannon cross. In between Dunkineely had a few chances well saved bythe in-form Cranford keeper Shaun Gallagher. On 75 minutes Kyle added hissecond from a Buchanan through ball and got his hat-trick when hescored from a Cannon pass. Declan Murrin put in a good shift for theaway team with new signing Kieran Sharkey, Kyle Black and Seamus Carrthe pick of the home team. Referee: Charlie Crerand.Gweedore Celtic 3 Bonagee United 0The final result may flatter Gweedore Celtic as this was a much closer game than the scoreline suggests. As early as the first minute Bonagee had a chance as Lee Mc Gonigle outpaced the home defence but his low shot went past the post. Against the run of play Brendan Devine’s shot took a deflection and wrong footed the keeper with the ball ending up in the back of the net.Bonagee continued to press and they seemed to have their reward when they were awarded a penalty just before half-time. Kevin Doran took the kick but fired it over the bar. The second half was a more even affair. Gweedore Celtic got their second goal on seventy-five minutes when Odhran Mac Niallais drove home from just inside the area. In the last minute Tommy Diver headed home from a Chris Porter corner. Best for Gweedore were Johnny Mc Ginty and Jamie Boyle. A team performance from Bonagee. Referee: Michael LaganGlengad United 1 Glenea United 1(Glengad won on penalties)St. Catherines 2 Cockhill Celtic Youths 1The Saints entertained Inishowen side Cockhill Youths in the Ulster Cup at a windy Emerald Park. Cockhill started the brighter and on thirty five minutes opened the scoring when Daniel Doherty hit a free kick from wide on the wing and it found its way to The Saints net with the assist of the strong wind. The Saints pressed for the equaliser but couldn’t break through the Cockhill defence.The second half saw chances go amiss from both sides and it wasn’t until eighty minutes that St. Catherines found the net when Cormac Cannon pounced on a defensive error and his shot hit the post on it’s way in. Cockhill finished the ninty minutes with ten men.Extra time saw The Saints press hard for the winner as Cockhill defended for their lives and on one hundred and five minutes Ryan Farrell popped up at the back post to riffle the ball low and hard into the bottom corner. Good team performances from both sides.

first_imgHe is on a better run of form than Liverpool’s first-choice attacking trio – all of whom were rather woeful in Saturday’s draw with the Blues – but Klopp may not want to risk Sturridge from the start seeing as Roberto Firmino brings so much more to the table in the defensive phase, and this could prove so important in a European away fixture.So, how will Liverpool line-up against Napoli? talkSPORT.com’s predicted Reds team can be seen below… Upcoming talkSPORT commentaries Klopp’s side lost their first match of the season last week when Chelsea beat the Reds in the Carabao Cup 2 However, confidence is high around Anfield given the club’s last-gasp win over PSG on Champions League matchday one, which puts Jurgen Klopp’s side in a great position to progress to the knockout rounds of Europe’s premier cup competition.Klopp has an almost full-strength squad available for the clash against Napoli, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain the only definite absentee. Adam Lallana and Divock Origi are doubts for Wednesday’s fixture, but it is unlikely they would be in Liverpool’s strongest line-up anyway.The biggest question for Klopp heading into the match is whether to include Daniel Sturridge in the starting line-up on the back of the England international scoring goals in both of Liverpool’s matches against Chelsea. Liverpool can make it two wins from two in this season’s Champions League when they visit Napoli on Wednesday evening, and you can listen to the full match LIVE on talkSPORT.The Reds visit the Stadio San Paolo on their worst run of form of the season so far, having been defeated and then drawn with Chelsea in the space of three days. 2 Napoli vs Liverpool (Wednesday, October 3) – CLICK TO LISTENSheffield Wednesday vs West Brom (Wednesday, October 3) – CLICK TO LISTENQarabag vs Arsenal (Thursday, October 4) – CLICK TO LISTEN Predicted line-up: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Milner, Wijnaldum, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Manelast_img read more

MCCONALOGUE BACKS FF MOTION TO PROTECT AGRI JOBS

first_imgThe Dáil will debate a Fianna Fáil motion this week calling on the Government to reverse its cuts to the Agri-Environment Options Scheme (AEOS) and the Disadvantaged Areas Scheme (DAS) and to tackle rising diesel prices.Donegal TD Charlie McConalogue says the motion criticises the lack of leadership from the government in protecting jobs in the farming and agri-food sectors.“We need clear and decisive action from the Government to support the agriculture sector, which is the engine of the economy here in Donegal and across the North West. There are 300,000 jobs in the agri-food industry alone and it contributes €24 billion to the economy,” said Deputy McConalogue. “I am concerned about the lack of leadership from the Government in addressing the serious issues facing farmers and food producers. Small farmers in Donegal have had a particularly difficult year and they are facing more difficulties after the Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney scaled back the AEOS and made changes to the minimum stocking density required under the DAS.”He added that Fine Gael and Labour have an opportunity to show their commitment to farmers and food-producers.Fianna Fáil has tabled a motion calling on the Government to recognise that the crucial role that the agriculture sector plays in job creation and economic growth here in Donegal and across the country.“The motion calls on the Government to stop scaling back payments that are essential to small farmers in Donegal. The Agriculture Minister must expand the new AEOS to 8,000 places and restore the original maximum payment of €5,000. “It also calls on the Minister Coveney to reverse changes he introduced to the minimum stocking density ratio under the DAS. We are also urging the Government to take decisive action to tackle rising diesel prices and to introduce an effective user rebate scheme that will alleviate the rising financial pressure on farmers, agriculture contractors and farmers.“I am urging the Government deputies across Donegal to show their commitment to local farmers by supporting this motion in the Dáil this week,” said Deputy McConalogue.MCCONALOGUE BACKS FF MOTION TO PROTECT AGRI JOBS was last modified: October 8th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Charlie McConaloguefianna faillast_img read more

Bulldogs Unveil New FieldTurf At Drake Stadium

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University football team will have new home turf to defend this fall as workers completed installation of a new FieldTurf HD Classic surface at Drake Stadium on Monday (June 13, 2016). FieldTurf HD Classic is the most up-to-date turf in the industry and is used at the University of Wisconsin’s Camp Randall, the Indianapolis Colts’ Lucas Oil Stadium and the University of Texas’ Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.
