adidas zip hoodie Duke claims top spot

No. 2 Michigan State received 13 first place votes, No. 3 Arizona had 18 and No. 4 Kansas got one.

Kentucky rounded out the top 5, followed by Villanova, Wichita State and Florida. Defending national champion North Carolina is No. 9 and Southern California is 10th.

West Virginia was No. 11, followed by Cincinnati, Miami, Notre Dame, Minnesota, Louisville, Xavier, 2017 national runner up Gonzaga and No. 19 Northwestern, which is ranked in the preseason poll for the first time.

Purdue was No. 20, with UCLA, Saint Mary’s, Seton Hall, Baylor and Texas A filling the final five spots.

North Carolina was ranked No. 6 in the 2016 preseason poll before going on to beat Gonzaga for its sixth national title.

Duke had three players leave school early, but coach Mike Krzyzewski restocked the Blue Devils with another stellar recruiting class. The class is led by Bagley, an athletic 6 foot 11 forward was widely considered the No. 1 recruit of the 2018 class before reclassifying.

Duke, which lost to Final Four bound South Carolina in the second round of the 2017 NCAA Tournament, is ranked No. 1 for the 129th time, five behind all time leader UCLA. The Blue Devils were first the preseason No. 1 in 1978 79 and finished seventh in last year’s final poll.

“It is an honor to be picked No. 1 in your sport,” Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “At this time of the year, it truly is a prediction, so you haven’t earned No. 1 yet. More than likely, past teams that have played at Duke have put this team in a position where people might say, ‘How is that team going to do?’ or ‘They have a lot of talent’ and all of the sudden, you’re No. 1. Certainly, it’s an honor and we’ll look forward to trying to achieve and earn that ranking at some time during the season, hopefully at the end.”

The Atlantic Coast Conference had the most ranked teams with five, while the Big 12 and Big Ten had four each. The Big East and Pac 12 each had three.

Arizona, USC and Louisville enter the season clouded in uncertainty after assistant coaches from Arizona and USC along with Auburn and Oklahoma State were arrested in a federal investigation into bribing players. Louisville will play under interim coach David Padgett after coach Rick Pitino was fired in the wake of the scandal that alleged that a recruit was supposed to receive payments from Adidas for committing to the Cardinals.

adida superstars Dueling Chesterfield outlet malls readying stores

If you can’t wait until August to see what stores will be in two new dueling outlet malls, Chesterfield is offering you a peek at the list.

For more than a year, Taubman Prestige Outlets and St. Louis Premium Outlets have been bragging about certain retailers going to their project and as Post Dispatch retail reporter Kavita Kumar pointed out last year some even list the same retailer. But now the moment of truth is getting closer.

These stores are ones that have actually gotten municipal zoning applications for interior finish work from the city; these applications still need to be approved by the county,
adidas la trainer 2 Dueling Chesterfield outlet malls readying stores
and then business licenses and occupancy permits need to get issued by the city. So while not quite final, these are a good indicator of what will be at the malls.

At Taubman Prestige, located across from Chesterfield Commons, the city has approved 38 applications,

though only 13 are identified. (The rest of the applicants will need to be identified when they apply for business licenses and occupancy permits.)

adidas windbreaker jacket DuBourg measures itself against best

adidas munchen DuBourg measures itself against best

“We knew it was going to be a good season for us,” Hediger said. “We brought back our most talented seniors. We brought back all but one starter from last year.”

Add an influx of exceptional freshmen and you have a DuBourg team that is productive all over the field.

Senior striker Kacie Trueman has been an unstoppable force. She’s scored 24 goals and has 10 assists. One of the more prolific goal scorers in her four seasons of varsity action, Trueman was often a one person show. Because of her exceptional skills, she felt a responsibility to max out every minute on the field all season long and carry the entire offensive burden. By the end of the spring, she would be exhausted. This year Trueman has help and lots of it.

“For the first first three years she had so much of a burden on her shoulders because she didn’t have the complimentary players to get that ball to her,” Hediger said. “She was overworked and she was tired. She felt like she had to take the team on her shoulders. This year, we have players that can pick up the slack and can score.”

Among those talented pieces are junior midfielder Tori Sample (11 goals, 8 assists), senior forward Mary Mazzuca (6 goals, 3 assists), senior midfielder Shannon Cahill (3 goals, 9 assists) and freshman midfielder Lexi Bracken (4 goals, 5 assists).

“Kacie is a lot more distributive with the ball,” Hediger said. “She has really matured as a player. It helps she has a nucleus of players that are unselfish.”

Despite its high powered offense, DuBourg’s defense is not to be overlooked. Led by senior center back Lauren Thierry, the defensive unit has jelled as the spring has worn on. Sophomore Angela Colombo and freshman Liz Campbell have been spectacular and when they need a breather Hediger can look down his bench at a cavalcade of Cavaliers ready and able to step in when called upon. The depth of DuBourg’s roster is an asset this season. Last spring a nasty string of concussions left the reserves devastated.

“Last year we had eight concussions. Five were on the varsity, three were on the JV,” Hediger said. “We haven’t had any of those kinds of issues this year which has allowed us to create a chemistry that is necessary moving forward especially against our next three opponents.”

Ah yes, the next three tests. St. Dominic, Windsor and St. Pius X will all test DuBourg in different ways. Mentally and physically, the Cavaliers haven’t had a stretch like this so far this season. But tough games are not uncommon for the returning players. Until this spring, DuBourg competed in the large division of the Archdiocesan Athletic Association, which meant home and home matches with St. Dominic, Duchesne and Borgia. This year, their first in the small division, the Cavaliers are only slated to see St. Dominic.

“I like scheduling up to play the best caliber of teams we can,” Hediger said. “I believe it does get us prepared for districts and beyond that.”

Beyond is where the Cavaliers would like to end up. After losing in the sectional round the past two seasons to perennial final four contender Rosati Kain, DuBourg’s returners put in a strong offseason to get past their arch rival and make an extended postseason run. Hediger said the players work ethic and the knowledge of assistant coaches Tim Champman and Steve Bettlach Jr. gives this season a real chance to be a special one.

But first, they have to break out that measuring stick.

“We know it’s going to be difficult, we know it’s going to be challenging, but you have to have where the bar is going to be set,” Hediger said. “We know we have our work cut out for us. We have to see where we’re at. Whether we win or lose we’ll learn a lot about our team.”

TRIAD GETS ITS SIGNATURE WIN

Matt Bettlach can be a wet blanket. He can let the air out of the balloons. He can be a party pooper.

Nobody said being a coach was all fun and games.

Bettlach, the Triad girls soccer coach, was extremely happy his team scratched out a 1 0 win over Edwardsville last week. But there was part of him that wasn’t satisfied.

“The girls were excited about beating Edwardsville,” Bettlach said. “I kind of rained on their parade a little bit because I wasn’t happy with some of our play.”

That being said, Triad (8 3) still found a way to beat a team it hasn’t in at least four years. The Knights have found their stride after some early season growing pains. They lost three of their first five including one goal losses to O’Fallon and Granite City. Since then, Triad got into the meat of its Mississippi Valley Conference schedule and caught fire. Winners of six consecutive matches, the Knights are doing good work from the front to the back of the pitch.

Junior midfielder Allison Wendt and sophomore Meaghan Smith have provided the offensive punch. Wendt has nine goals and four assists and Smith has eight goals and two assists.

“Both of those girls had big numbers last year and they carried over,” Bettlach said. “They have played well against the big schools.”

The defensive unit has been excellent, too. Bettlach switched up his formation a bit and it has paid off. He doesn’t like to use a sweeper, but sophomore Sam Bassler has been smashing in the role. Junior Makayla Hewitt and freshman Kalie Gibbs have made opposing attackers miserable as marking backs.

“Both of those girls have done a really good job of taking the opposition’s forwards out of the game and not allowing them to get comfortable,” Bettlach said.

The Knights rely on not one but two excellent goalkeepers. Skye Clarke and Gabby Kayser alternate halves and both have been strong.

“Both are technically sound goalkeepers,” Bettlach said. “I’m lucky to have both of them.”

Triad’s win over Edwardsville was the big moment of the season thus far, but there are plenty of stiff tests ahead. There are matches at Collinsville, at Belleville West in early May. Next week, the Knights will play Lafayette at Summit as they take part in Summit’s Meghan Herndon Memorial Tournament. The field also includes Pattonville, Eureka, Francis Howell, Fort Zumwalt South and Fort Zumwalt East.

“I like to play the Missouri competition just for the fact it prepares you for playoffs,” Bettlach said. “If you go past regionals and get to sectionals you start to play teams that are very similar to big schools in Illinois and Missouri.”

The closing stretch to the season will give Triad a full picture of who it is and what it’s capable of. It’s chasing the Mississippi Valley Conference title, but there’s another match with Waterloo on the docket that could decide who claims the league crown.

“The next couple of weeks are going to be interesting to see how we do,” Bettlach said. “I don’t want to count out Waterloo, either. They’re very talented and young. It’s not easy.”

adidas hi tops Dry weather creates ‘extreme risk’ fire areas in Colorado Springs

adidas nizza lo Dry weather creates ‘extreme risk’ fire areas in Colorado Springs

The Colorado Springs Fire Department is already planning for the worst, especially in some areas of town.

They said everything west of I 25 from near Fountain up to around Monument, and over in to the Palmer Park area are all high risk areas for fire dangers.

There are things you can do to make your home safe.

If you’re not thinking about fire dangers around your house now is the time.

Susan Frazee lives on the west side. She’s already on top of mitigation around her house, but no matter how dry it gets she won’t let it scare her.

“I do what I can and the rest is out of my hands,” said Frazee.

The fire department helps mitigate fields on the west side, but around houses you need to do things such as “weed whacking the grasses, or knocking the grasses down, or pulling some of the leaves out of the gutters that’s accumulated in the fall time. It’s really simple measures that make a big difference,” said Jeremy Taylor with the Colorado Springs Fire Department.

Frazee’s backyard is a good example of how to properly mitigate.

There is not a lot of dried fuels to burn and her trees are properly trimmed,
adidas hi tops Dry weather creates 'extreme risk' fire areas in Colorado Springs
but even if you don’t live west of I 25 you need to be thinking about this and take care of your house.

“Everybody has a risk even though they’re not in the foothills, or along the Front Range,” said Taylor.

Some people we talked to said they’re not a fan of mitigating because they think it’s all about getting rid of all vegetation around their house.

“We’re not about clear cutting. We’re not about removing every little piece of litter, or tree, or whatever the vegetation may be,” said Taylor.

Not everyone will do what Frazee did, but that doesn’t bother her.

“I can do my bit. ‘And hope your neighbors do the same?’ Yeah,” said Frazee.

The fire department said if we get a little bit of rain we’re not out of the woods.

All it takes is a couple of days of dry weather and we’ll be right back in the danger zone, which is why they want people to take mitigation efforts before it gets too far in to fire season.

ST. LOUIS (KTVI) Drury Hotels is offering a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a man who killed a hotel manager overnight. in the lobby of the Drury Inn at Hampton and Interstate 44. He was one of six people murdered in St. Louis in just under 12 hours.

“We hope this reward will be an incentive for someone to come forward and help solve this senseless crime,” said Chuck Drury, president and CEO of Drury Hotels. “This is a tragic situation, and our goal is to bring justice for Scott’s family.”

Knopfel was part of a close knit family and very involved in his church. He’s a former reservationist for TWA and American Airline. He was loved by many people.

“He enjoyed helping others, he enjoyed serving others, I should say, and that was reflected in the jobs he had in the hospitality industry,” said Michael Knopfel, Scott’s brother.

“I would describe him a gentle giant, always a smile, always a kind word for someone,” said Jeanne Ryan, fellow church member.

Police hope surveillance video obtained from the Drury Inn will help them apprehend the man responsible. The gunman is described as an African American man, last seen wearing a Chicago Bulls cap, khaki pants, a dark leather coat, and a black t shirt with the Adidas logo.

adidas zxz Drumming sisters help kids celebrate Honoring Our Youth Pow Wow at Big Sky High School

adidas bucket hats Drumming sisters help kids celebrate Honoring Our Youth Pow Wow at Big Sky High School

An estimated 200 people attended the afternoon dances at the event, a tradition of Missoula County Public Schools, and more were expected later in the evening. The brightly colored dresses and elaborate headdresses with feathers are a feast for the eyes at a powwow, but the drums are the heartbeat that keep the dancers stepping, strutting and twirling.

Pierre herself began drumming after her grandmother died two years ago. Her grandma loved the drum, and the family drums together every week. So Pierre started attending the practices, and soon she was taking the lead.

Her family’s drum is named Bear Spirit, and the skin is made of an elk hide. One of Pierre’s favorite pieces is an emotional and touching honor song by her brother Willie Pierre, and Saturday the family performed her brother Jerome’s grass dance.

“We just love to sing, so we like to travel to even the littlest powwow,” Pierre said.

She and her brother, Jerome, stood in the concessions line between songs, and unlike the dancers in traditional garb, the drummers wore baseball caps and Adidas jerseys. For them, the tradition comes from the inside. Drumming and singing at a powwow is fun for the Pierres, not competitive, and every time they attend one, they honor their way of life.

“It’s our tradition. We get to do what we love to do,” said Jerome Pierre, 20.

Saturday, Jerome Lumpry, who is Salish and Pend d’Oreille, drummed with a group of men, including one who held a mallet in one hand and a toddler in the other. Lumpry said in the olden days, only men sat at the drum, and women sang behind them, but these days more women are joining the drum, at least in some tribes.

“There’s some tribes that are still really old fashioned, and they wouldn’t let females anywhere near a drum,” said Lumpry, of St. Ignatius.

The friends and family he drummed with at Big Sky have been singing together since they all could walk, he said. When everyone harmonizes really well together, he said it creates a good feeling inside.

Drugs, particularly Ecstasy or E, were the major concern for police and St John ambulance staff at the Rhythm and Vines music festival.

Police said alcohol was not such a major issue this time.

Of the 15 people taken to Gisborne Hospital with severe diarrhoea and vomiting on the final night of the festival, one was kept in overnight on New Year’s Day and the rest were discharged at various times over the day.

Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA),

Damian Warner says he can sense the optimism around Canada track and field athletes.

The country top athletics stars are in Ottawa this week for the Canadian track and field championships. They enter the competition riding a wave of success from the 2016 Rio Olympics that saw Canada win six medals in athletics, led by sprinter Andre De Grasse silver in the men 200 metres and bronze in the 100 and 4×100 relay.

Derek Drouin of Corunna won gold in high jump, while Warner and Brianne Theisen Eaton won bronze in decathlon and heptathlon, respectively.

the last little while it been really cool to see the transition, Warner said Wednesday. Andre, and the relay team and me and Derek and Brianne and (runner Melissa Bishop) doing really well. There a whole bunch of other people doing extremely well so it kind of cool to be a part of that whole excitement and whole trend and I think it going to continue to grow. will be competing in hurdles and long jump in Ottawa as a tune up for the decathlon at the world championships in London next month.

Drouin and De Grasse, who will defend his Canadian 100 metre title and run in the 200, will be joined by Bishop in the 800 metres and Shawn Barber and Alysha Newman in pole vault.

Drouin admits there is a challenge following an Olympic year, but he took some time off and feels confident after returning to action, and despite results not being exactly where he wants them.

been pretty much on par with where I been at in years past, but I always am expecting more, said Drouin, who’ll jump Saturday. I didn have the experiences of the last couple seasons of I knew this is where I was yet I was able to get to a certain point when it mattered I might be a little bit discouraged.

an athlete and always expect more, but it important to keep yourself in check and realize this is a journey and the real important meets are in a month and a half from now and I gearing for that and I confident with the progression.

DAMIAN WARNER: The Olympic bronze medal decathlete is running the 110m hurdles and taking part in the long jump this week. In May, he won his 10 discipline season opener at Gotzis, Austria, (his third at the annual Hypo Meeting) with 8,591 points 104 shy of his Canadian record from the 2015 worlds in Beijing. He isn required to contest another decathlon until the worlds in August at London, England. Now training in Calgary, his only job is to show Athletics Canada he is though he probably win the hurdles crown.

ALYSHA NEWMAN: The Olympic pole vaulter rebounded from her first no height event in two years (at the Diamond League stop in Stockholm three weeks ago) to register a 4.65m, second place finish at Golden Spike Ostrava in Czech Republic. record holder Jenn Suhr. Newman, a Mother Teresa grad sponsored by Nike, holds the Canadian indoor and outdoor records, both established this season.

DEREK DROUIN: The Olympic champ is entered in the high jump competition but considers himself while dealing with a minor Achilles tendon issue. If you don think he can perform in that state, remember he won in Rio last year with a double stress fracture in his back. Like Warner, the Corunna native has always regarded himself as a multi event athlete and with good reason. In April, he scored a personal best 7,150 in a decathlon at a meet in Santa Barbara, Calif. His plan, he has indicated, is to represent Canada in the decathlon at the Commonwealth Games next year in the Gold Coast. His 2.28m high jump effort, of course, stands as the world record inside a decathlon. Warner holds world decathlon marks in the 100m dash and 110m hurdles.

LANNI MARCHANT: The Olympic history maker passed up the marathon at worlds to target the 10 km distance. That means running the 5k race in Ottawa Thursday to lock up her spot. This has been a turbulent year for the 33 year old lawyer. She mourned the loss of her father Roly, had surgery to remove a kidney stone recently and also spent two months in physiotherapy and strength training to fine tune her mechanics after four years of pain that led to cramping in her left calf. Marchant also signed an endorsement deal to become Under Armour clothing first professional runner in Canada. Two weeks ago, the Toronto resident took part in the 22nd annual Pride and Remembrance run in another tune up and finished top female.

CAROLINE EHRHARDT: The six time defending national triple jump champ knocked off a personal best 13.41m in the hop skip leap test at provincials, and she ready to soar some more in the nation capital. Only five Canadian women have gone further than the London Western club member. And she not alone. Clubmate Alicia Smith is a top notch performer, too. Ehrhardt also plans on representing the country at the Francophone Games, at the Ivory Coast in Africa,

but there could still be a small deficit when rainfall since December (meteorological winter) is considered.

More good news could come once we get into February. The Climate Prediction Center is placing higher odds for above average rainfall to start the first few days of the month.

Possible trough development in the Midwest at the beginning of February could open the door for some more needed rainfall in the Southeast. This could set the stage for more rain in the Deep South.

adidas superstar 2 white black Driving social change through photography

Cameras can be powerful tools used to drive change. In Cape Town, South Africa, a fighting spirit and a positive outlook gave one visual artist the gravitas to represent his country through a different lens.

Imraan Christian is a skilled photographer with an impressive resume bursting with popular brands such as Nike, Adidas, MTV and RedBull.

“I identify as a story teller first and foremost. I use several tools to convey a message, one of my favorites being photography. The camera is like another limb to me,” he said.

It’s not the household brand names that make Christian a popular artist. It’s the social activism he displays all across the Cape of Good Hope that has left an imprint in peoples’ minds.

Inspiring youth through positive imagery

Having grown up on the Cape Flats an area notorious for gangs and drugs Christian aims to educate and inspire youth through murals with strong positive imagery.

A recent display in Hangberg, a community on the Cape Flats, depicts children using cameras and musical instruments in place of gun.

“It’s about channeling that same passion and force into a more positive way. Its’ a reminder for young people that the potential is infinite. That they should dream wildly,” he said.

Fostering change by shedding a light on the next generation seems to be a recurring theme in his life.

‘I was born to bring light’

In 2015, students began to protest the rising cost of college education in South Africa. Christian, a fresh graduate and freelance journalist, was there to capture it.

“They called me ‘the eye’ during the protests. In representing the protests, I was very conscious about what I represent and the lens to represent it,” Christian said.

With a click of his camera, he catapulted his career to the top of the commercial world with this iconic photo of the “Fees Must Fall” protests.

For Christian, there’s no greater purpose than sharing his talent.

He moonlights as a mentor in an Adidas program in Cape Town, where he teaches young creatives between the ages of 14 and 20 the tricks of the trade.

“I knew I was born to be a leader and I knew I was born to bring light. There is this saying in Arabic, it’s ‘mahtomb,’ it means ‘it was written.’ And for me, I feel like I’m walking a path that was written.”
