first_imgGreensburg, IN —Many of the 4-H livestock project members began preparing months before COVID -19 became a reality. While the entire Decatur Co. 4-H Council is focusing on what must happen to host a very modified live show for these 4-H members, the traditional 4-H auction to reward these young people for their hard work is not going to happen in the traditional way.This is where Decatur County Farm Bureau Incorporated is stepping up and asking our community to pull together an alternative. It is asking you to join this cause with your monetary support.It believes that not having an auction will be extremely detrimental for this year’s and future 4-Hers. Helping connect support for the 4-H members has the potential to directly impact those in livestock projects and offers a different, better outcome in these unprecedented times.Decatur County Farm Bureau Inc. has set up an account to collect donations through the Napoleon State Bank: “Decatur County 4-H Livestock Auction Supporters”. It hopes to raise as much money as possible to give back to 4-Hers who are involved in the 4-H livestock projects that would normally benefit at the traditional 4-H livestock auction. It is only intended for this fundraiser to be a 1-year solution. It is our hope that next year the Decatur County 4-H Fair will return with great success and once again there will be the traditional 4-H auction.There are two options for collecting your donation. You may go directly with your donation to any of the Napoleon State Bank branches –Greensburg (2 branches), Westport, and Napoleon.

first_imgMelbourne: Organisers of the ICC T20 World Cup are optimistic of organising of a successful tournament even if it directly competing with Australia’s football codes due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.The men’s T20 World Cup, slated to be played from October 18 to November 15, has come under doubts due to the coronavirus outbreak which has brought the entire sporting calendar to a grinding halt.With both the Australian Football League (AFL) and National Rugby League (AFL) seasons suspended, they may now clash with the T20 World Cup when they resume.“We’re wanting to give ourselves the best possible chance of going ahead as planned, so there’s no imminent or quick decision,” Nick Hockley, chief executive of the T20 World Cup organising committee, was quoted as saying by“Hopefully it’s all resolved and we go ahead. In the event that it isn’t completely resolved, we are looking at all the different scenarios. Which is only prudent.“They are collective discussions involving the organising committee, the ICC, all the members. We will keep everyone updated if anything changes. But for now, we’re just under seven months away … we’ve got a bit of time,” he added.The postponed AFL and NRL seasons will now almost certainly last long beyond September if they resume.“We really feel for the winter codes, obviously they’re doing it very tough,” Hockley said.“In the event they have extended seasons … we still think the World Cup is a really strong proposition that might not come here again for 10 or 20 years.“We’re very encouraged already by the take up in terms of ticket sales,” he added.Speculations are rife that the T20 World Cup might be cancelled. The BCCI is now looking at the October-November window to host the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) which stands suspended till April 15 and chances of it being held in the near future are highly unlikely.But the move can only be possible if the ICC decides to postpone the World T20 that is to be held later in the year.However, ICC has made it clear though that the T20 World Cup is still on as planned and there have been no talks of postponement.Also read: Pay cut of Premier League players will hurt tax returns: Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA)Also watch: Coronavirus Preventive Measures: Dr. Navanil Barua in exclusive interview with The Sentinel Digitallast_img read more

first_imgYear two of the Andy Enfield era will come to a close soon. Barring an unlikely upset of UCLA at Pauley Pavilion or an unexpected run through the Pac-12 conference tournament, the Trojans will finish the season with a 3-15 record in conference play and 11 wins overall.In terms of a win-loss record, this year marks a slight increase from last season’s 2-16 march through conference play. Unless the Trojans are able to pull off a first-round upset in the Pac-12 tournament, they will match the overall win total of last year’s squad with 11 total victories.As frustrating as the record might be, there are some subtle indications of a program on the rise. Last season, the Trojans were blown out of the majority of conference games, losing by double-digits in more than half of their matchups. This season the team kept it closer, with six conference games being decided in the final few minutes. Unfortunately, the Trojans were on the losing end of all of these games, which is why the record only reflects a marginal improvement.Ultimately, though, it’s not good enough to just be close. College basketball isn’t horseshoes, and winning matters. As the great coach Bill Parcells says, “You are what your record says you are.”For the second-straight season, that makes the Trojan basketball team a fixture as a basement dweller. It would be inane to put the team’s dismal performance the last two seasons solely on Enfield. The second-year coach entered a bleak situation, coming into a program absolutely devoid of talent.He has made a few quality moves to rectify the situation, bringing in a respectable freshman class this past season. In addition to highly touted recruit Jordan McLaughlin, Enfield was able to nab Elijah Stewart who was the 2014 LA City Section Player of the Year for Westchester. Next year, local ESPN top-100 prospects Bennie Boatwright and Chimezie Metu will headline another solid recruiting class.Both McLaughlin and Stewart have shown flashes of their potential during the season, turning in a few excellent performances throughout the year. Additionally, freshman Malik Marquetti has turned into one of the best defenders on this year’s team. So there are certainly some positives when evaluating the team and the future of the program.It would be impetuous to call for Enfield’s job after only two seasons, as next year will be the true indicator of whether or not he is the right man to be at the helm of the Trojan program. There are many areas where the Trojans can improve in order to really field a competitive basketball team in a power conference.USC needs another point guard to complement McLaughlin. Though he had a decent showing as a freshman, McLaughlin’s nagging shoulder issues that originated in high school are cause for concern. Offseason surgery might fix that issue, but it doesn’t address the bigger problem. The bulk of McLaughlin’s game is centered on driving through the lane; there is a high probability that constantly exposing his slight frame will always put him at a risk for injury.Furthermore, a point guard should be one of the best free-throw shooters on the team. McLaughlin cost the team repeatedly with an inability to shoot a high percentage from the line. Instead of relying on a platoon of Julian Jacobs, Katin Reinhardt and company to bring up the ball when McLaughlin is out next season, the team should be looking for a point guard to add to the 2015 recruiting class.In Enfield’s up-tempo system, athleticism and outside shooting prowess are of paramount importance. The Trojans were certainly athletic this season, but they were inept from outside the arc. Arguably the best shooter on the team, Kahlil Dukes, rarely sees the floor. The only other consistent outside threat was Reinhardt, who fluctuated between outstanding performances and turning invisible on the court.What USC really needs is a few players who can knock down an open 3-point shot consistently. It doesn’t matter how athletic all five guys are if every team packs it in with a zone because they aren’t the least bit concerned about the 3-point shot.The team showed promise this season, and hopefully they can build on that moving forward. The Trojans have a few key pieces, and with the right recruits and improved player development, they can move forward in the rebuilding process. Next year will answer a lot of questions.last_img read more

To put that into perspective, she is tied with Wisconsin’s very own Kayla Konwent.While Konwent beats Edwards outright in batting average, Edwards still sits 11th in the Big Ten at .368. Edwards will look to be a spark for the rather lackluster Nebraska offense — which sits third-to-last in the Big Ten — come this weekend.While Mergele poses the best ERA for the Cornhuskers at 3.48 and the Badgers can expect to see her sometime this weekend, the more probable pitcher that the powerful Wisconsin offense will face is Lindsey Walljasper.Walljasper holds a 10-11 record with 28 appearances in the circle this season, and will look to limit the usually dominant Badger lineup.Softball: Young Badger core look to leave lasting impact on Wisconsin programThe 2019 University of Wisconsin softball team (31-8, 8-5 Big Ten) has already had an outstanding, record-breaking season that’s put Read…But the Nebraska pitching staff as a whole also sits third from the bottom in the Big Ten based off of ERA — something the Badgers will look to take advantage of, as they have proved in the past that they are good at scoring runs.Wisconsin poses a three-game win streak in their part matchups against Nebraska after sweeping them last season. But it’s the Cornhuskers who hold the lead in the all-time record between these two teams, 12-5.The first pitch of this series will take place form Goodman Diamond Friday at 5 p.m. Games will continue Saturday at 1 p.m. and Sunday at noon.
