But at least for one night, against their biggest foil, they looked like a Top 25 team in their own right.Perry Ellis had 24 points to lead the Jayhawks, whose lead over Iowa State in the league race was whittled to a half-game.

first_imgAirline’s Christian Walden won the 160-pound class. Last year, the Parkway Panthers finished sixth in Division II in the Allstate Sugar Bowl LHSAA State Wrestling Tournament.Parkway coach Emmett Beggs believes his team has a shot to do a lot better this year and even make a run at the title.“We have a shot this year because this is the deepest team we have had since we won it last back in 2006,” Beggs said in an e-mail message.“We have individual state champions every year but that’s not what wins team titles. It’s the other guys doing their part placing third through sixth. We feel we have those guys the next few years. It would mean a lot to South Bossier and North Louisiana wrestling to bring the DII title back to its home and to do it in Bossier would make it extra special.” The 2017 state tournament gets underway Friday and concludes Saturday.

first_imgRugby League BY KEVIN TEME Proper incentives for athletes in any sports can lift their performance, says Minister for Commerce and Industry Wera Mori (pictured). Whether it is an individual or team sport, incentives have become one of the major catalysts of lifting players’ performances in the modern era. While proper discipline, training and preparations are just as vital for athletes or teams, incentives play a major role,” he said. Mori said this during the Digicel Cup preliminary finals between Lae Snax Tigers and Bintangor Goroka Lahanis at the Oil Search National Football Stadium on Sunday. Mori, who is also the Chuave MP and a strong rugby league supporter, said proper incentives also played a big part in the Lahanis’ victory. “For Lahanis, we are complete footballers and we play our game to the last minute. As you can see the way the boys came back, it is the stamina and it’s an indication of the amount of effort and quality of time that the coaching staff put into to mould the Lahanis,” he said. Mendi Muruks is another franchise club facing similar setbacks with players not being paid their fortnight salaries and match payments, among others. Former Muruks coach Jack Kereme said: “Most of these players have families to look after and if you put in proper incentives for them, they will perform to the best of their ability as they are playing for something. “At the end of the day, you got to look after your players and they will perform.” Mori said he had to provide incentives for the Lahanis and it showed in their strong performance on the day. “These were new players and we had to provide incentives in this game now. What will happen is that for every tackle I am putting K50 and the Lahanis boys have to win to take that so its a win to win it or lose to lose it,” Mori said. Mori said it was quite a task but it worked out for the team. Asked if he would consider taking more supporters to Lae for the game against the Gurias, Mori said: “I think we should win the game against Gurias and besides, I am sure Lae can be reached as it’s along the Highlands Highway. You could see the entire Eastern Highlands Province there.”last_img read more
