Students run 5k to fight homelessness

first_imgA group of Saint Mary’s students, faculty and administrators participated in the Homeward Bound 5K for St. Joseph County on Saturday. The Homeward Bound run/walk contributed to local organizations to fight homelessness and provide housing.Saint Mary’s Student Government Sssociation (SGA), organized a group of more than 40 members of the Saint Mary’s community to participate in the event. Saint Mary’s senior Kat Sullivan, who organized the event, said it was fun to dress up as superheroes and help local organizations.“We’re supposed to represent the superheroes of South Bend, the organizations that really give back to the community, so we were representing Center for the Homeless and Hannah’s House, so all the funds that we raised will go to those organizations,” Sullivan said.Duane Wilson, chair of Homeward Bound for St. Joseph County, said this is the seventh annual Homeward Bound 5K in St. Joseph County and the third year the Robinson Community Learning Center has hosted the event.“The Homeward Bound 5K is to bring awareness and raise funds for affordable housing and to support the homeless,” Wilson said. “Last year we raised $16,000 and [the money] gets divided up between five agencies that support the needs of homelessness, specifically Bridges out of Poverty, Habitat for Humanity, Hannah’s House, Center for the Homeless, Hope Ministries and the Robinson Community Learning Center.”First year student Elizabeth Chandler said she had a great time participating in the race with her friends and was happy she could contribute to helping Hannah’s House and Center for the Homeless.“The Homeward Bound was my first 5K I’ve ever done, and it felt so great knowing I not only completed this race, but I also helped fight homelessness and poverty,” Chandler said. “It was a really rewarding experience”.First year student Maureen Daday dressed up as Batman.“I thought the atmosphere was awesome because everyone was so excited to help the local organizations in South Bend,” Daday said. “People from Saint Mary’s really wanted to help out, and it was cool seeing all the students come together and run for a good cause, I will definitely participate in the Homeward Bound next year.”Bethel College, Notre Dame, Holy Cross and Saint Mary’s were asked to form groups for the event. Senior Kat Sullivan said that participating in events that benefit local organizations have made her realize how important it is to give back to the community.“I see firsthand what the Center can do for the South Bend community by working with the guests at the Center for the Homeless, so I realize how important events like the Homeward Bound 5K are,” Sullivan said. “… These organizations do so much for the South Bend community, and it’s important for us to give back.”Tags: Homeward Boundlast_img read more

New head coach brings program-building vision to Ellsworth softball team

first_img Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 ELLSWORTH — Years after his playing career ended, one experience is driving Jake Hackett’s success as a high school coach.As a sophomore in 1994, Hackett joined the varsity football team at Sanford High School. At the time, the Redskins were in the midst of a stretch so abysmal that the program’s futility was close to becoming national news.Instead, a new head coach, Mike Fallon, sold Hackett and the rest of Sanford’s sophomore players on building the once-proud program from the ground up to restore it to its former glory. Improving bit by bit with each season, the team went from Class A bottom-feeders to one of Maine’s top football programs. In 1998, two seasons after Hackett graduated, Sanford claimed its first state championship in 39 years.“We were almost on ESPN for the longest losing streak in Maine high school football history,” Hackett said. “We went from 33 straight losses to winning games and getting better year after year. To be part of those teams where you were building up the program, that was a really fun experience.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textSince then, Hackett has made his former coach’s philosophy his own. Now, he’ll do so as head coach of an Ellsworth softball team that’s already established itself as a consistent program in the Class B North ranks. Ellsworth head softball coach Jake Hackett instructs Isabelle Perry during practice April 1 at Ellsworth High School. Prior to coming to Ellsworth, Hackett played in several men’s slow-pitch softball leagues and was the athletic director and head baseball coach at Greenville High School.

Hackett said his coaching philosophy stems from his days as a Sanford High School football player.

ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELL123PreviousNextHackett began coaching at Ellsworth as an assistant for the girls’ soccer team in 2016 and took over the JV softball team when the former head coach, Dottie Cameron, replaced the retired Rick Roberts at the varsity level in early 2017. Earlier this year, Hackett was named to Cameron’s post after the latter took an assistant coaching position at Colby College.Prior to his time at Ellsworth, Hackett played men’s slow-pitch softball and was athletic director and head baseball coach at Greenville High School. At Greenville, Hackett entered his first season at the helm with a major rebuilding job ahead of him as the baseball team was looking at an untenable roster of just seven players.Yet Hackett convinced five more players to come out for Greenville, which ultimately made the playoffs that season. By his fourth season, the Lakers had 25 players, enough to field a JV team for the first time in 25 years.“My style of coaching is definitely that program-building style,” Hackett said. “Everywhere I’ve been, the goal has been getting numbers to grow by getting people involved and keeping them active.”At Ellsworth, which has a student body seven times larger than Greenville’s 2015-16 enrollment of just 67 students, that task is set to be a much easier one. The school has had healthy numbers across all spring sports in recent seasons, and its successes on the softball diamond have included playoff wins over the No. 1 and No. 4 seeds the past two years.“When the playoffs come around, we’re always playing our hardest,” Ellsworth senior Mackenzie Chipman said. “Those big games always bring out the best in us.”Chipman is entering her third season as a pitcher for the varsity team after splitting starts with Sammy Mason in 2017 and taking over the No. 1 starting spot last year. Sara Shea, the Eagles’ No. 2 pitcher last year, will be back in the circle as well. Ellsworth’s Sara Shea uses a training bat during high school softball practice April 1 at Ellsworth High School.

The Eagles will begin the 2019 regular season on the road against George Stevens Academy at 4:30 p.m. April 18. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELL1234PreviousNextElsewhere, Ellsworth will be rebuilding its infield after losing Katelynn Bagley, Shelby Cote, Hannah Sargent and Mariah Young from last year’s squad. Those players also made up the heart of the Eagles’ batting order last season, though Ellsworth still has three strong hitters returning in Shea (.436 batting average and 24 hits last year, both team bests), Kayla Duhaime (.381 with 16 RBIs) and Katie Hammer (.306).“Finding the right batting lineup is definitely going to be different this year because we lost three or four power hitters,” Hammer said. “In the infield, we have to replace everybody [from last year]. … It’s going to take a lot to see who can play the positions the best and get the job done for the team.”Hackett has stressed the importance of strong hitting in Ellsworth’s early practices, and he’s already seen his team make major improvements at the plate. His baseball teams at Greenville won games via offensive firepower, and he wants the Eagles to do the same.“Good hitting is contagious,” Hackett said. “You get one player going, and the rest of the team gets energized and keeps it up. It gives you momentum.”Ellsworth is scheduled to begin its preseason slate with a doubleheader against Oceanside starting at noon Saturday, April 6, though field conditions could see that exhibition contest postponed or canceled. The team will start regular season play on the road against George Stevens Academy at 4:30 p.m. April 18.With six seniors on this year’s Ellsworth team, Hackett and the rest of the Eagles are hoping for a fast start to the season. Yet even when this large senior class departs, the Eagles have a stable foundation for the future with a big crop of eighth-graders that includes Hackett’s daughter, Annabel, set to join the team as freshmen next year.“At a place like Ellsworth, you know you’re going to have talented, hard-working athletes and a lot of them,” Hackett said. “My personal success comes down to numbers, and we have them here. Moving forward, it’s all about getting the best out of each player and finding room for growth.” Latest Posts Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 Biocenter_img Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander.

Week 11 Fantasy Sleepers: Brian Hill among this week’s potential breakouts

first_imgWEEK 11 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST  | KickerAs they say, defense wins championships. It’s not totally true in fantasy football, but you also don’t want to start the incorrect D/ST. The streams are light this week, but ideally we have three suggestions who can come through for you.Last week, we were mostly right about Kareem Hunt, at least for PPR owners. He played a huge role in the Cleveland passing game and should be a vital part of that offense going forward. Ronald Jones also had a solid game, although it was surprising that it came through the air, and Joe Mixon got a heavy workload despite trailing all game. Week 10 was also when we said Kyler Murray was “due” on the road, and oh boy, was he ever. On the bad side, Zach Pascal disappointed, but we redeemed ourself with a solid volume day from Gerald Everett.Just a reminder before you get into it: Sleepers aren’t automatic starts. In a lot of ways, we hope you have two better options than someone like Ballage. But give these guys more consideration when you set your lineups this week than you may have been planning on.To see our Week 11 busts, click here.WEEK 11 PPR RANKINGS: Running back |  Wide receiver  |  Tight endLISTEN TO THE SN FANTASY WEEK 11 PREVIEW PODCAST BELOWWeek 11 Fantasy Sleepers: Running backsKalen Ballage, Dolphins vs. Bills (Billy Heyen).  I accidentally nearly put Ballage down as my bust running back for this week, too. That’s the type of player he is. But if he can get 20 or more touches again against a defense in the lower half of the league against running backs, he should find his way to some decent fantasy numbers via that volume.James White, Patriots @ Eagles (Vinnie Iyer).  When New England’s actual running game gets shut down, White should be seeing a lot of short passes come his way as an extension of the running game.Brian Hill, Falcons @ Panthers (Matt Lutovsky).  The Panthers have been torn apart by running backs over the past five games, allowing 11 rushing scores and two receiving touchdowns. Hill received virtually all the Falcons backfield work after Devonta Freeman (foot) exited last week, and he’ll likely receive a similar workload this week.WEEK 11 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | DK cash | DK GPP |  FD cash | FD GPPWeek 11 Fantasy Football Sleepers: QuarterbacksNick Foles, Jaguars @ Colts (Heyen).  Foles returns to a matchup with a middling pass defense. Dede Westbrook (shoulder) should be healthy after the bye, and DJ Chark will still do his thing. Foles should probably have a rock solid floor in Week 11. Sam Darnold, Jets @ Redskins (Iyer). Washington is weak in the secondary, so Darnold can be streamed if you need him as a fill-in for Russell Wilson or Aaron Rodgers.Derek Carr, Raiders vs. Bengals (Lutovsky).  Carr has clearly burned a lot of fantasy owners because he remained sub-50-percent owned in Yahoo leagues entering Week 10 despite averaging 289 passing yards and 2.3 touchdowns in his previous three games. He didn’t do much last Thursday (218 yards, TD), so perhaps the cold shoulder was justified, but a matchup this week against a Bengals defense allowing the third-most fantasy points per game (FPPG) to QBs will make him worth starting. MORE WEEK 11 DFS: Values | Stacks  | Lineup BuilderWeek 11 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Wide receiversTre’Quan Smith, Saints @ Buccaneers (Heyen).  Smith looked to surpass Ted Ginn Jr. as the Saints’ No. 2 WR a week ago, and now he gets a matchup with the defense allowing the most fantasy points to WRs in 2019.  ( Update: Fuller has been ruled out for Week 11, making Kenny Stills a viable sleeper this week.Auden Tate, Bengals @ Raiders (Lutovsky).  Tate basically disappeared in the second half last week, but he played every snap and had a respectable six targets for the game. With A.J. Green (ankle) still hobbled and Tyler Boyd also banged up, Tate could be Cincinnati’s top target against an Oakland defense allowing the third-most standard FPPG to WRs. MORE WEEK 11:Waiver wire | FAAB planner | Trade values |  Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOSWeek 11 Fantasy Football Sleepers: Tight endsTyler Eifert, Bengals @ Raiders (Heyen).  The Raiders have allowed the third-most FPPG to tight ends in 2019, and Eifert caught a touchdown from Ryan Finley in the rookie’s first start. Maybe the rookie QB will continue trusting his tight end as the narrative often suggests.Jack Doyle, Colts vs. Jaguars (Iyier).  They need him to produce badly with their wideouts hurting, and this matchup calls for that in the passing game.T.J. Hockenson, Lions vs. Cowboys (Lutovsky).  Hockenson hasn’t done much since Week 1, but he has 13 targets over the past two games. Jeff Driskel targeted him six times last week, and this week he faces a Cowboys defense allowing the fourth-most standard FPPG to TEs.   Fantasy football season is getting into crunchtime. In most leagues, Week 11 means you have three weeks left to solidify your playoff position, sneak into a final playoff spot, or collapse and fall out of relevancy. We wouldn’t want you to do that without the best sleeper picks to save your season. So, yeah, that Brian Hill guy you’d never heard of until last week — he’ll factor heavily into start ’em, sit ’em decisions. Things change quickly in the NFL, and our sleeper picks reflect that.Some weeks our sleepers are on the border of being pretty straightforward starts, but not this week. Sure, Hill is pretty obvious with Devonta Freeman out, but he was a relative unknown a week ago. Auden Tate and Tre’Quan Smith have been passed over by fantasy owners time and time again this season. Tyler Eifert and Jack Doyle are basically the definition of old, slow, unexciting tight ends. And maybe they aren’t automatic starts, but they certainly deserve more consideration than you were likely to give them. Week 11 Fantasy Sleepers: DefensesDallas Cowboys @ Lions (Heyen).  Jeff Driskel (assuming he starts) isn’t scaring anyone. Fire up the Dallas defense in a matchup that should be full of sacks and turnovers.Oakland Raiders vs. Bengals (Iyer). They rolled in prime time against the Chargers last week and will keep it going in the Black Hole against another turnover-prone NC State QB.New York Jets @ Redskins (Lutovsky).  Washington has scored 18 points over the past three games…total. Dwayne Haskins starting debut wasn’t terrible, but he did take four sacks. When you add in the INT issues we saw from him earlier in the year, the Jets make for a high-floor, high-ceiling play.last_img read more
