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. It will be held at the CenturyLink Center for the second straight year.Friday’s opening session starts at 9 a.m. The second session begins at 4 p.m.Saturday’s first session starts at 8 a.m. The final session of the tournament, which includes championship matches, will start at 6:30 p.m.The defending champions are New Orleans Brother Martin (Division I), Lafayette Teurlings Catholic (Division II) and New Orleans De La Salle (Division III).Parkway has nine wrestlers who have won 30 or more matches this season — Trevor Tamburo, Joshua Keeler, Darryl Nicholas Jr., Ryan Huckaby, Trey Fontenot, Toby Fontenot, Matthew Pitts, Dalton Driggers, Zachary Harper, Kaleb Garcia and Carson Sanders. Tamburo finished third in the 120-pound division last year. He has moved up to the 132-pound class and is the top seed. Pitts is the No. 1 seed at 138. Huckaby (152) and Driggers (160) are seeded second in their respective weight classes. Harper is No. 3 at 113 and Trey Fontenot No. 4 at 126.The tournament will mark the swan song for Airline senior Christian Walden, who goes into the event with a 45-0 record.Walden won the 160-pound title last season and is looking for his third straight state championship. He is the top seed.Walden is one of five Airline wrestlers who have won 40 or more matches. The others are Dakota Brace, Joshua Partin, Darrell Evans and Matt Salinas.Salinas is the No. 2 seed at 195 pounds. Brace (106), Evans (182), Partin (138) and Thomas Barringer (126) are seeded fourth in their respective divisions. Airline finished seventh in a tough Division I last season. Division I has traditionally been dominated by New Orleans private schools.Holy Cross and Jesuit finished 2-3 behind Brother Martin last year.The Vikings added the Bossier Parish Championships title on Friday to their District 1-5A and regional titles.Haughton’s DJ Monroe and Johnny VanVeckhoven posted runner-up finishes in Division II last year and should contend again this year. Monroe is the No. 2 seed at 195.Benton’s Jordan Myles, third last year at Division II 170, is also a threat to win.

first_imgPresident of the Nigerian Boxing Board of Control (NBB of C), Dr Rauf Ladipo and Secretary-General of the boxing body, Remi Aboderin, have commended the sponsors of GOtv Boxing Night for their plan to stage the World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental heavyweight title bout in Lagos.The high-profile match, which will see Nigeria’s Onos “Godzilla” Ehwariemi take on Argentina’s Ariel “Chiquito” Baracamonte, is the headline encounter of the nine-bout show holding on 28 December at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos.  Speaking over the weekend, Ladipo described the WBF bout as an indication of progress Nigerian Boxing has made.“The WBF is a prestigious world boxing body. That a WBF title bout is holding in Nigeria is a clear indication of the progress the sport has made. Huge credit should go to GOtv, which has provided enormous support for boxing over the last five years, and, of course, Mr Adewunmi Ogunsanya, Chairman, MultiChoice Nigeria, for making this a reality,” said Ladipo.Aboderin, the body’s  Secretary-General, is of the same persuasion.  He stated that the WBF title bout is the biggest bout to be staged in Nigeria in decades, adding that it is a big plus for Nigerian boxing and the country itself.“We have not had such a high profile fight in Nigeria for a while. The NBB of C is really happy with the support for the sport by GOtv, whose intervention since 2014, has given boxing a lifeline,” Aboderin said.Aboderin, who is also President of the West African Boxing Union (WABU), called on other corporate organizations to emulate GOtv, which he said has demonstrated plenty commitment to youth development via boxing.GOtv Boxing Night 20 will feature three other title fights.  The are the West African Boxing Union (WABU) lightweight title bout between the defending champion, Rilwan “Real One” Oladosu of Nigeria and Ezekiel Anan;  WABU welterweight bout between the reigning champion, Nigeria’s Rilwan “Baby Face” Babatunde and Ghana’s Sanitor Agbenyo; and a national bantamweight title bout between Sadiq Adeleke and Opeyemi “Sense” Adeyemi.Other bouts include a national featherweight challenge clash between Taiwo “Esepo” Agbaje and Olusegun Moses; a national super featherweight contest between Ridwan “Scorpion” Oyekola and Sikiru “Omo Iya Eleja” Shogbesan; and a national light heavyweight fight between the reigning national champion, Adewale “Masevex” Masebinu, and Olanrewaju Segun.Alaba “Eylbow” Omotola will square up against Bolaji “fight to Finish” Abdullahi in a national lightweight challenge, while Cynthia “Boby Girl” Ogunsemilore will face Aminat Yekini in an all-female bout.The event will also feature live musical performances from rave-of-the-moment, Zlatan; Mayorkun and Oritsefemi.

first_img Guardiola also hit out against the idea that top flight teams could enter it later in the competition. 12/02/2016 at 17:13 CET “In Spain, with two-game rounds, it’s tough, but here with one game it’s very attractive and very interesting.” Guardiola said that including big teams from the start with small teams was good too, mentioning how Lothar Matthaus and Didi Hamann’s Bayern were knocked out by Vestenbergsgreuth. “The system is perfect, the small teams deserve the chance to fight against the big ones,” he said.  Sport EN/EFE Pep Guardiola defended the German Cup, saying that one-game ties instead of two allowed greater chances for smaller teams to surprise bigger ones.  “We can’t forget that a few years ago Matthaus and Hamann lost in the first round,” said Pep. The pair commentate on Sky in Germany on the Bundesliga on Saturdays and at times have been very critical of Guardiola.last_img read more
