first_imgThe USC track and field team performed well in a field containing some of the world’s best athletes at the Mt. San Antonio College Relays, coming away with several first place finishes and strong showings.Double threat · Freshman Reggie Wyatt ran a season-best 50.45 in the 400-meter hurdles and also ran in USC’s champion 4×400-meter team. – Tim Tran | Daily Trojan “There were a lot of good performances out there,” USC coach Ron Allice said. “I thought we had a pretty solid weekend.”Senior sprinter Ahmad Rashad highlighted those performances by winning the men’s 100-meter dash with a wind-aided time of 10.08 seconds. Rashad’s sprint is the second-best collegiate time all season, and his first place finish was even more impressive considering he ran in the same heat as 2008 Olympic sprinter Rodney Martin.Sophomore sprinter Joey Hughes added to USC’s first place finishes at Mt. Sac, winning the men’s 400-meter dash with a time of 45.37.In addition to being the fastest time at the Invitational, the time placed Hughes fifth in the world, second in the country and eighth on the Trojans’ all-time list in the event.The USC hurdlers also made their presence felt. Junior Brendan Ames finished first in the men’s 110-meter high hurdles with a time of 13.80, a new personal best. Freshman Reggie Wyatt also ran his best time of the season in the men’s 400-meter intermediate hurdles, a 50.45 that was good enough for a second place finish behind two-time NCAA champion Jeshua Anderson of Washington State.Hughes and Wyatt, along with redshirt sophomore Bryshon Nellum and senior Nate Anderson ,made up the men’s 4×400-meter relay team, which closed the Mt. Sac Invitational with a winning time of 3:03.70.“All four of those guys ran great legs,” Allice said. “It was really the ultimate team effort.”For the USC women, senior Elizabeth Olear won the 400-meter dash with a time of 53.95, a second better than her previous personal record. Senior hurdler Shalina Clarke also had a solid day, placing third with a time of 13.38 in the women’s 100-meter high hurdles.Next up for USC is the Triton Invitational on April 23, hosted by UC San Diego, and the USC-UCLA dual meet the following week. Allice said the meet helped prepare USC for the rest of the season.“Now we start evaluating where we stand as far as the dual meet and within the conference,” Allice said. “We now have a much clearer picture than we did before. From here on in, it’s championship time.”last_img read more

first_imgSinn Fein’s Padraig MacLochlainn has said today’s Irish Times opinion piece from Fianna Fáil’s Michael McGrath is insulting to the Irish people.Deputy MacLochlainn said today: “It is unbelievable of a Fianna Fail spokesperson to tell the government to ease up on austerity. In fact it is insulting to the intelligence of the Irish people.“It was Fianna Fail who chose the road of austerity and defended it for years. Now, we are told they don’t believe it is the right course. They brought in the Troika and signed off on the surrender letter. “It is equally confusing to hear Michael McGrath speak about the need for investment. He calls the government’s inaction ‘a disgrace’. This is the same Fianna Fáil that argued against progressive and realistic stimulus plans that have been put forward by Sinn Féin for years.“Michael McGrath’s rhetoric is, as usual, short on specifics. Will he commit to scrapping the Family Home Tax like Sinn Féin has done? Struggling homeowners should not hold their breath.“According to Deputy McGrath, a smaller adjustment could make all the difference indeed for our ‘austerity-weary citizens’ – it is a pity that Fianna Fáil didn’t feel this way when they introduced €15bn of cuts when they greedily hung to power after they had lost all credibility.“Fianna Fail has every right to contribute to the budget debate but I call on them not to insult the Irish people’s intelligence by claiming to be against austerity.”  MacLOCHLAINN ATTACKS FIANNA FÁIL OVER AUSTERITY was last modified: August 13th, 2013 by John2Share 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:MacLOCHLAINN ATTACKS FIANNA FÁIL OVER AUSTERITYlast_img read more
