OSU freshman attacker Avery Murphy (27) during a game against Cincinnati on March 11 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Courtesy of OSUThe No. 17 Ohio State women’s lacrosse team toppled Binghamton and Hofstra over the weekend, allowing it to ride a seven-game win streak home from New York.The Buckeyes beat Binghamton 10-5 on Friday. Sophomore attackman Molly Wood led OSU with four goals, while senior attackman Cian Dabrowski added two goals and three assists. Dabrowski leads the team with 25 goals this season. Most of the scoring happened in the first period after senior midfielder Kelsey Gallagher set the tone, scoring a goal a mere two minutes in. Binghamton tied it up a minute later, and the game remained tied until junior midfielder Paulina Constant scored the first of three straight goals from the Buckeyes, giving them a 4-1 lead. The game went back and forth from there, but Wood scored two consecutive goals to give OSU a 8-4 advantage at halftime. Wood scored another goal just 33 seconds into the second half, making the score 9-4 in favor of OSU. Dabrowski added the last Buckeye goal with 20 minutes left. Senior goalkeeper Katie Frederick earned the win, registering six saves. The Buckeye defense had a solid performance, holding the Bearcats to five goals, and OSU outshot Binghamton 32-15 and forced 20 turnovers.OSU then beat Hofstra in an 18-8 victory on Sunday. The win marked OSU coach Alexis Venechanos’ 100th career victory and boosted the Buckeyes’ record to 9-1, which equals the program record for the best start to a campaign.Dabrowski tallied a career-high six goals on just seven shots, giving her 100 goals for her career. Wood added four goals and tied her career high with 13 draw controls. Senior attackman Rainey Hodgson contributed five assists on the day. She has 20 assists on the year, which already eclipses her season total from 2015.The Buckeyes were in control the entire game, netting the first nine goals of the match, the first of which came just 15 seconds in. OSU held a 14-3 advantage in draw controls in the first half and outshot the Pride 18-7. OSU led the game 14-3 by halftime. The Buckeyes’ biggest lead was 18-3 with 20 minutes left, before they surrendered five goals after the game was already out of reach. Frederick picked up another win, making two saves in the game. OSU is primed to be back in action Saturday for its Big Ten opener against Michigan. The game is slated to start at 3 p.m. in Ann Arbor, Michigan. read more

Bray Wyatt talks WWE 2K15 cheers from the WWE audience

Now Playing Up Next Celebrity Shortlist: Top 3 Actors You Didn’t Know Could Rap John Cena Videos Articles Now Playing Up Next Google+ Pinterest Twittercenter_img Brian Fritz passed this along.WWE superstar Bray Wyatt talks with Brian Fritz about being in his first video game in the upcoming WWE 2K15 game, action figures when he was growing up, how his entrance has blown up, crowd response and whether he is a babyface or a villain, finding the real him in his character now, the past year and feuds with John Cena and Chris Jericho and what is yet to come.http://www.sportingnews.com/sport/story/2014-09-30/bray-wyatt-wwe-2015-wyatt-family-john-cena-chris-jerichoHere are some excerpts from the interview:On being in the new WWE 2K15 game:“I think the game is pretty cool. As far as my appearance in the game, I think it’s pretty spot on. They could have made me a little more jacked, that would have been more realistic. My muscles are a little smaller in the game than they are in real life so I’m a little upset about that but as far as from an entrance perspective and gameplay, wow, it’s just breathtaking.”On getting cheered by audiences:“I don’t think I’m a category. I can’t be put in a category just because I don’t feel like there’s good people and bad people in real life. I think there’s good people who do bad things and bad people who do good things. There’s no such thing as good and bad. There’s just this collage of humanity that society has portrayed. You dress like this when you’re in front of people but behind closed doors, who knows who you really are.”On the past year in the WWE:“It’s been tremendous but it’s not enough. It’s never enough. So it’s like the tenacity to move forward and jeep moving forward. And the things I have planned that are coming up are going to be alarming for the rest of the world, the free world.”Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipVin Diesel and John Cena share ‘intense’ sceneVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 1:05/Current Time 0:04Loaded: 100.00%0:05Remaining Time -1:01 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Battle Ground woman held in death of motorcyclist

first_imgA Battle Ground woman accused in the death of a motorcyclist she rear-ended while he was stopped at a traffic light Friday told investigators “she did not know how the crash occurred and said the motorcycle came out of nowhere,” court records state.Investigators say they believe Regina Mae Milam, 60, was under the influence of a drug at the time of the crash. A preliminary breath test found she had no alcohol in her system. However, Milam’s speech was slow, she slurred her words and repeated herself, her eyes were bloodshot and pupils constricted, and she performed poorly on field sobriety tests, according to an affidavit of probable cause. Her blood was seized for toxicology testing; those results are pending.Milam appeared Monday in Clark County Superior Court on suspicion of vehicular homicide. Despite Milam’s lack of a criminal history, Judge Jennifer Snider set Milam’s bail at $100,000, citing concerns for community safety. She will be arraigned Aug. 16.Authorities have not yet identified the motorcyclist. But family and friends identified him as 20-year-old Andrew Harig, according to a GoFundMe account.“Andrew was an amazing young man. His kind heart and caring nature could be felt by all who knew him,” the memorial fund states. “He excelled at everything he did. If you called him for help at any time of the day, he would be there without question.”last_img read more

Medvigy leads in Clark County Council race

first_imgRepublican Clark County Councilor Gary Medvigy emerged from Tuesday night’s primary election with 58.88 percent of the initial count, compared with the 41.82 percent received by his Democratic challenger, Adrian Cortes.Both candidates advance to November’s general election, where the winner will go on to serve a one-year unexpired term. In Washington, all partisan elections appear on the primary ballot even if only two candidates are seeking the position.The initial count of 19,354 votes on election night suggests that Medvigy could be positioned to prevail in November’s general election.“I’m hopeful,” said Medvigy of the result. “I worked pretty hard, at least I thought so.”Medvigy has only lived in Clark County since 2016. But equipped with a resume that includes stints as a California Superior Court judge, prosecutor and U.S. Army general, he was appointed in January to fill the District 4 vacancy on the Clark County Council. During his time representing the predominantly rural district, Medvigy has taken conservative positions on taxes and spending. Under the county charter, only residents of that district will vote in that race.Cortes, an educator and member of the Battle Ground City Council, has emphasized his community ties to Clark County. He’s also espoused fiscally conservative positions and called for more public involvement in county government.Cortes said he would continue working to get his message in front of voters.“It looks like we need to do some work about closing that gap,” he said.last_img read more

Auditor says staffing levels low at juvenile facility in Chehalis

first_imgCHEHALIS — A federal auditor says Washington state’s maximum-security lock-up for juvenile offenders has sub-standard staffing levels.KING-TV reports this creates dangerous conditions for both workers and the young offenders housed there.The Green Hill School, in Chehalis, is “out of compliance on most shifts” and this “makes the facility highly vulnerable for.sexual abuse incidents” and other safety problems, according to a US Department of Justice auditor.The audit confirms a February report by the KING 5 Investigators that revealed 478 assaults were recorded at Green Hill, according to documents from the Washington Department of Social and Health Services.Sixty-nine of those assaults, most of them on staff members, were referred to Chehalis police for criminal charges.Current and former Green Hill employees say under-staffing was the primary reason that assaults couldn’t be brought under control.last_img read more

Clark County Fair packs all sorts of fun into last of its

first_imgCountry singer Briana Renea has performed at roughly 100 fairs and festivals in six years, but this was her first go-round in Clark County. What stood out most to the Canby, Ore., performer: the local fair’s size.“For me, this feels more like the state fair than the county fair because it’s so big,” Renea said.The 10-day Clark County Fair wrapped up Sunday. With its 151st edition completed — but with specific attendance and revenue numbers not yet available — fair organizers seemed satisfied with its popularity.“It actually went really, really well,” Fair Manager Mickey Webb said. “We had really good attendance.”Organizers believe the momentum from last year’s 150th anniversary, and the promotion efforts that accompanied it, might have continued this year. The fair typically draws hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.“I think it did (carry over), the extra marketing that we did for that,” Webb said. “We are definitely on par with last year’s numbers.”With any fair, weather can be a major factor in attendance level. Hot weather is common at the Clark County Fair, but this year was unusual. While blistering days could be felt, they were mixed with milder, cloudy weather and even rain.last_img read more

Go Ready equips students for learning

first_imgThe halls and lunchroom of Hudson’s Bay High School were bustling Wednesday, filled with eager kids and smiling adults.Don’t fret over your calendar. You’ve still got about two weeks before students are back in school. But Vancouver Public Schools is working to make sure that when that day comes, students “Go Ready!”The school district hosted its fifth annual back-to-school fair, a blowout event attracting thousands of families. The “Go Ready!” event mixes a resource fair with a medical clinic and adds a dash of shopping center to round out the experience. Students picked out clothes, got a haircut, caught up on their immunizations and had their ears, teeth and vision checked — all for free. Parents perused booths staffed by nonprofit organizations such as Lifeline Connections, Partners in Careers and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, learning about social services, job opportunities and after-school programs.And because it’s still summer, at least for a little longer, there were free hot dogs and ice cream.Jan Redding, the district’s director of public engagement, said it’s a break from the chaos of back-to-school season for families, and a reliable place to find most necessities for the season.“They’re coming for the basic needs for their kids,” Redding said as hundreds of families milled around. “It takes a lot of anxiety out of being ready for the first day.”Take Ashley Tarkong, for example. The Vancouver mom took a brief respite from her 7-year-old son’s high energy to play a few rounds of a game on her phone. Her son, Kannon Davis, who is going into second grade, played nearby as the pair waited for him to get a haircut. Just a little off the top, said Tarkong, running her fingers through her son’s curls.last_img read more

G7 pledges funds to fight Amazon fires

first_imgPORTO VELHO, Brazil — The Group of Seven nations on Monday pledged tens of millions of dollars to help Amazon countries fight raging wildfires, even as Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro accused rich countries of treating the region like a “colony.”The pledge by rich countries included $20 million from the G-7 and a separate $11 million from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Canada has also offered to send firefighting planes to Brazil.The funds were widely seen as a relatively small amount for dealing with an environmental crisis of such scale, and it was unclear how exactly the money would be administered on the ground. Brazil’s environment minister, Ricardo Salles, said the aid was welcome and that Brazil should decide how the resources are used.The international pledges came despite tensions between European countries and the Brazilian president, who suggested the West was angling to exploit Brazil’s natural resources.“Look, does anyone help anyone … without something in return? What have they wanted there for so long?” he said to journalists outside the presidential palace.last_img read more
