Denny Hamlin sweeps to Busch Pole Award in Michigan qualifying

first_imgBROOKLYN, Mich. — With a blistering lap at 202.794 mph (35.504 seconds) on Friday, Denny Hamlin won his second straight pole position in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. This time, he left no doubt as to who had the fastest car. Hamlin’s No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota was fastest in opening practice—and fastest in all three rounds of knockout qualifying at Michigan International Speedway.RELATED: Starting lineup | Weekend schedule For the second straight week, Hamlin and JGR teammate Kyle Busch (202.731 mph) will start 1-2. Hamlin edged Busch by .011 seconds to earn his second Busch Pole Award of the season, his first at Michigan and the 28th of his career. A victory from the pole would continue Hamlin’s streak of at least one victory per year, starting with his 2006 rookie season.“It is a very important streak,” Hamlin asserted. “I think about it… I thought it was all over in 2013, the year that I broke my back (in a wreck at Auto Club Speedway), and we won in the final race of the season to keep the streak alive.“You look back at the really great drivers of NASCAR, and they had long streaks, 10 years and above, of winning in a row, and you want to keep that going for sure. It’s important.”Busch was on pace for the pole before losing time through Turns 3 and 4 in the money round.“I thought 3 and 4 went OK,” Busch said. “Certainly, I don’t think it was my best time through there. The first couple of runs, we’d been fighting ‘loose,’ so you kind of drive a little differently to be ready for the loose situation, and then on the final run, we were tight.“You guard your entry or guard your center or whatever you do for the loose, and that doesn’t happen, and you’re tight, and then you’re too tight because you guarded for the loose. Just ever so slightly just missed it, I guess. Overall, I didn’t think we were going to qualify there, so we’re certainly pleased with that.“Denny’s been fast so far from unload, so good for them to capitalize on that.”MORE: Top fantasy sleepers for Michigan | What retro shirt is Dale rocking?Kevin Harvick, like Busch a six-time winner this season, qualified third at 202.100 mph. Erik Jones was fourth at 201.805 mph, putting three Gibbs Toyotas in the top four on the grid.The Richard Childress Racing duo of 2018 Daytona 500 winner Austin Dillon and Ryan Newman will start from the third row after qualifying fifth and sixth, respectively. Martin Truex Jr., Ryan Blaney, Joey Logano and Alex Bowman completed the top 10.The No. 19 Toyota of Daniel Suarez, who had posted the third fastest lap in opening practice, twitched out of control in Turn 2 in the opening round and tapped the outside wall. Suarez posted no time for the session and will start from the back of the field.“I just got loose,” said Suarez, who had asked for adjustment after his car felt slightly tight in practice. “We just crossed the line. Once we got in the gray (out of the preferred groove), it was like being on ice.”Suarez was optimistic his team could fix the cosmetic damage and get it ready for Saturday’s two practice sessions and Sunday’s race.“I think we’ll see the 19 passing a lot of cars on Sunday,” Suarez said.last_img read more

Siva Naulago – everything you need to know

first_img The basics How long is Naulago’s contract?Naulago has signed a two-year deal at Ashton Gate until 2022/23.Who is he currently playing for?Naulago currently plays Rugby League for Hull FC in Super League. Profile Name: Siva NaulagoBorn: FijiDOB: 06/08/91Height: 1.83mWeight: 95kgPosition: Wing  Naulago so far… Siva Naulago’s journey to the Gallagher Premiership is a unique one, but the Fijian cross-code star, who took the Super League by storm with 17 tries in 21 appearances for Hull FC, is ready to unleash carnage in English rugby’s top-flight.Super League stardomA Private in the British Army, Naulago was still living in army barracks during his stint up north, where he wasted little time in announcing himself on the big stage, with two tries on debut against Wigan Warriors.His whirlwind start at Hull continued with braces in wins over Huddersfield Giants and Leeds Rhinos, and a man of the match display on his Challenge Cup debut against Castleford Tigers.Naulago has also enjoyed guest stints in rugby union, representing both Bath and Saracens in the Premiership Sevens, and the British Army in the Babcock Trophy at Twickenham.But it was his Sevens prowess that caught the attention of the then Hull FC Head Coach, Lee Radford, who wasted little time in offering the winger an initial trial and then a one-year deal.From there, Naulago has flourished, with Bristol Director of Rugby, Pat Lam pouncing to gain the signature of one of Super League’s hottest properties.Army StrongSiva Naulago’s passage to Ashton Gate is remarkable, having moved to the British Isles aged just 18 to join the armed forces.He soon became a mortarman in the first battalion of the Yorkshire Regiment, before being stationed in Cyprus for two years and making a brief trip to Afghanistan.Naulago put his military responsibilities on hold to pursue his rugby career and has been granted an extended leave by the Army, allowing him to take up his contract at Bristol Bears.And Director of Rugby, Lam, is excited about the 28-year-old’s potential in the Gallagher Premiership: “With Siva being an EQP Rugby Union player and a British Army Soldier, we looked at him closely. He is incredibly fit, with great pace and an eye for the try line. He’s been consistently outstanding in his relatively short time in Super League and a lot of people are sitting up and taking notice of his spectacular performances.“When Conor and I spoke to Siva we were really impressed by his determination and reasons to succeed but also his willingness and humility to want to help those around him succeed as well. We believe he will fit in very well to our Bears Team systems and structures on and off the field as well as the demands of the Premiership.“He will add quality depth to our backline and we thank the British Army for their co-operation and the incredible work that they do.” The showreel What he said “I’m delighted to have signed for Bristol Bears for the next few seasons. Pat has put together a great squad in recent years and the team are really starting to make their mark both in the English Premiership and European competitions. “They play a really attractive brand of rugby which I think will suit me and get the best out of me as a player. I was hugely impressed by the new training facilities and their aspirations and ambitions as a club. They want to be challenging at the top end of the game and there seems to be a real buzz around the city.” Siva Naulagolast_img read more

The Super Bowl…Could the Sheriff and Wade Phillips’ defense be Superman’s kryptonite?

first_imgThe Opinionated Spectator  Alexis CobbIt’s the Super Bowl game and this game is going to be fun. Think about it. On one hand we have the Sheriff who is likely playing the last game of his career and, on the other hand, we have Superman, who looks like he is having so much fun and is unafraid of the big stage.Now I don’t want to brag, but I will say that I am 9-1 in the post season thus far. That’s right baby. I have  been analyzing and picking these games brilliantly. Last year, I was 9-2 overall and I thought that was pretty good. But this year, I could achieve greatness. Let’s go!!! Carolina PanthersThis team is a really good team. Contrary to popular belief, Cam Newton is not the entire team. He is, however, the best player on the team and raises his players to greatness. Actually, right now he is the best player in the league. I have seen him take decent players like Greg Olsen and Ted Ginn, Jr. and make them look special. I have seen him frustrate the best defenses. I have seen him have opposite teams fighting on the sidelines angry with each other because he and his motley crew just keeps playing loose, happy and fun.The Carolina Panthers offense has literally embarrassed grown men. I have seen it happen with my own eyes. Cam is versatile. He can throw the long ball. He can force the ball through the seams. He is mobile and can create space for him. Plus, he does it with ease. While others look like playing football is a job; Cam’s talent, skill and preparation allow him to play the game with ease.  He is Superman.Now, his defense is not as good as you would expect. They are the sixth ranked defense in the league but they have a knack for allowing guys to grab yards on them.A good illustration of this was the Seattle game. They let Seattle go out and score 24 unanswered points on them in the second half. That was the game that showed that the defense can literally lose focus and get outplayed. If Cam hadn’t been so brilliant in the first half of the Seattle game, Carolina could have lost the game.Now, the Arizona game is not a true read of what Carolina’s defense is capable of because Carolina had a 12th man on defense and his name was Carson Palmer.  Carson was the best defensive player on Carolina’s team. He gave them the ball six times. It was unbelievable. They weren’t forcing the majority of those turnovers. Carson was just passing them out like he was Santa Claus at toys for tots. It was ridiculous.So, when you look at their defense, you can see that they are good at home and that they can play well. But they will not be the best defense in that game. No and no. The best defense in the game will be the Denver Broncos.Denver BroncosDenver’s offense has a hard time scoring touchdowns and many times their receivers will drop catchable balls. It’s so frustrating. If you saw the Pittsburgh Steelers game then you saw just how pitiful their receiving core played. Manning was throwing the ball and they would just inexplicably drop the passes. At New England, Emmanuel Sanders redeemed himself along with some of the others but I still have little to no faith in the Denver offense. They won’t win the game. If Denver wins, it will be the defense who is responsible for the victory.Let’s discuss Denver’s defense. Denver’s defense on last Sunday was not just formidable. It was scary. It was unpredictable. They had a swag that you can’t teach. Von Miller played like a man possessed. Everything that could go right, went right for the Broncos. Are the Carolina Panthers that much better than the New England Patriots? Carolina has a better, mobile quarterback and they have a running game but their receiving core isn’t that much better than the Patriots.There is an old saying that defense wins championships and I saw it play out with my very own eyes on March 24. The Denver Broncos defense beat the New England Patriots for the AFC Championship. They hit Tom Brady over 20 times. It was unbelievable. They dominated that game and yet Tom was two yards away from tying the game in the final seconds. That’s what an outstanding quarterback can do to a defense of high quality. An outstanding quarterback can take hit after hit and still be inches from taking the game into overtime. Tom is an outstanding quarterback but Cam Newton has some of the intangibles that Tom doesn’t have. Cam Newton is young. Cam Newton is mobile. Cam running 13 yards on a scramble is not news.But the quarterback to watch in this game is Peyton Manning. Peyton Manning is likely playing his last game and it is the Super Bowl. If you don’t think he understands the gravity of this moment then you are surely mistaken. He wants to win.  He just has to play 60 minutes of mistake free football and he could be cradling the Lombardi trophy and finishing his career on a high note. Plus, can you imagine being the wonder kid of your family and your baby brother gets two Super Bowl rings and you only have one Super Bowl ring.You think Peyton is going to let his snot nosed baby brother, Eli have bragging rights at the dinner table without putting up a fight? I don’t think so. If the Denver Broncos lose, it won’t be because the stage was too big for Peyton Manning. No and No. If they lose, it will be because of the greatness of Cam Newton.My Prediction: I just can’t shake the feeling that the Denver’s Defense is going to come out and create havoc on the Carolina Panthers. I see Cam being hurried and playing well but just not having enough time to get the ball with preciseness to his receiving core. I see Ted Ginn, Jr, being frustrated and dropping untimely passes. I see Cam Newton being productive and special but his team ultimately letting him down. He is a quarterback and they don’t  have guys who have been tested and who have the ability to catch the ball on the biggest stage. With the Panthers not being at home, I just don’t know if I have the faith in the Panthers offensive line, receiving core and running backs to play at the level that their quarterback will play. I don’t. I know Cam will be effective and ready especially in a tight game down the stretch. I just don’t know if I can trust the others.Here is my only issue. With all that Denver defense did in that game against the Patriots, Tom had them a two point conversation from tying the game.  Cam would have muscled his way in for those two yards. I usually go with my gut. But right now, my gut is betraying me. My gut says pick Denver because defense wins championships and defense can disrupt even the most prolific offense. But my common sense says that Carolina needs to score 4 touchdowns and a field goal to comfortably win the game. Even with all the defensive chops of a Wade Phillips’ precise defense, I still think Cam can rally his motley crew to victory.  Even if he has to score some of the touchdowns himself.So, that’s my pick, I’m picking Carolina Panthers to win over Denver Broncos in an entertaining game.In other words, I’m picking Superman over the Sheriff. I want to be wrong, it would be nice to see Peyton go out on top.  I just can’t shake the feeling that Superman will find a way to claim this victory.However, DeMarcus Ware and Von Miller just might be his kryptonite.(Source for this story was ESPN.com )Alexis Sara Cobb may be reached at:  [email protected] or (724) 561-8082  Follow her on Twitter: @alexissaralast_img read more

Mount Sentinel Grad Katie Wayling sets up shop in Florida

first_imgAs an athlete at South Slocan’s Mount Sentinel High School, Katie Wayling has done it all — well almost everything.Moving from Stanley Humphries in Castlegar during her Grade 9 year the budding volleyball/basketball star made an immediate impact on the varsity girl’s teams.During the four years at Mount Sentinel Wayling was part of a pair of provincial titles, both — B.C. High School A Girl’s Volleyball Championship in 2007 and B.C. High School A Girl’s Basketball crown in 2008— coming in the same school year. Wayling, 18, achieved the rare feat while playing with older sister Kendra.Something very rarely accomplished at the high school level, especially in the Kootenays.Wayling also played for Team B.C. Volleyball squad in the summers of 2007 and 2008.But athletics is not the only highlight of Wayling’s schooling.In January of this year, the daughter of Rand and Christine Wayling was part of the Mount Sentinel School trip that was in Haiti during the earthquake.Which was an event that definitely gave the 5’7” setter from Canada a different outlook on life.So much so that Wayling has allowed very little moss to grow under her feet as she is now attending school in sunny Florida at Palm Beach State College, located 60 miles north of Miami in Lake Worth, Florida.The Nelson Daily Sports Editor Bruce Fuhr caught up with Wayling prior to leading the mighty Panthers into the National Junior College Athletic Association Florida State Championships Women’s Volleyball Championships in Winter Haven. The Panthers, 21-8, opened States with a five-set victory over Florida State College at Jacksonville.However, Palm Beach State lost to top ranked Miami-Dade 3-1 and before being swept 3-0 in the rematch against Florida State College at Jacksonville.By the way, the weather in West Palm Beach recently has been a balmy 26 C.
The Nelson Daily: Take me through the way you got to attend Palm Beach to play volleyball.Katie Wayling:I look at life as one big adventure.  As my grad year came to it’s last few months I started thinking more and more about how I could get out and live life to it’s fullest.I began to realize all the opportunities that were right there in front of me so I set out to pursue one and it landed me here. I started by researching schools in areas that I would like to travel to.  After emailing several different schools, I came across PBSC (Palm Beach State College).  I contacted the coaches and after they reviewed my game footage they offered me the full ride scholarship. How could I pass up the opportunity to not only play volleyball at the collegiate level, but also travel to a place I have never been before!  I took the chance, packed my bags and hopped on a plane to Florida saying goodbye to everything familiar to me . . . and all I can say is I couldn’t be happier with my decision.TND: How’s the volleyball experience?   KW: Not only are my coaches very kind, but they make me see the game in ways I didn’t know existed. Running plays I have never ran before makes things new and exciting so I enjoy every opportunity I get to get better. I feel as though I have become a much stronger setter since training here.  I have a great time with all the girls on and off the court and have certainly made friendships that will continue down the road for many years to come. This is the exact level I wanted to compete at so I am very content.
TND: Are you getting lots of time? 
KW: We started the season running a 6-2.  I would play three rotations, sit three rotations, then back in for three again and so on.  About a month into the season we began running a 5-1 with me as the starting setter. I have been getting plenty of playing time with the exception of a couple games that I was out due to a shoulder injury. 
TND:  Do you live on campus?KW: The majority of student-athletes live in Emerald Lake’s apartments and town houses.  It is a very nice complex surrounding a lake less than a mile off campus.  I live in a two-story town house with three teammates. The houses are very nice and spacious- LOVE having my own room.
 
TND:  Did you think last year at this time, during Grade 12 season with the Cats, you’d be playing varsity volleyball in Florida?KW: I had no idea where life was going to take me at that point. TND: Did your time at Mount Sentinel prepare you for life outside the Kootenays?KW: The months I spent with classmates, (the) teachers of Quest for Community, the things I experienced and life lessons I discovered in that time span have had more impact on shaping me into the person I am today than anything else in my life.  TND: And what about all those bus rides, tournaments and provincials as a member of the Wildcats?KW: All of the great times and achievements that were had with (varsity volleyball coach) Joe (Moreira) and the Cats will never be forgotten.
