This spring, Saint Mary’s Center for Spirituality (CFS) will sponsor the 2014 Spring Lecture series “Witnesses to the Love of God: The Leadership of Catholic Women Religious,” which will feature scholars from across the nation throughout March 6 to April 8.The lectures will be complemented by an original play memorializing the life of Sister Madeleva Wolff, Gwen O’Brien, Saint Mary’s director of media relations said.“Sister Madeleva was a visionary, an educator, a medieval scholar, a poet and a woman of deep spiritual conviction,” O’Brien said. “In her 27 years as president she put those gifts to good use leading Saint Mary’s to national prominence as a premier Catholic liberal arts college.”This season marks the 50th anniversary of Wolff’s death. In preparation for the semi-centennial, students in associate professor of English Laura Haigwood’s writing proficiency course last semester wrote essays about the life of the College’s former president.The College’s drama department will also contribute to the lectures’ commemoration of Wolff’s life. Susan Baxter, a senior lecturer in communication studies, asked her students to write dramatic monologues about Wolff, which she used to create a 90-minute play, O’Brien said.“I am so grateful to Laura Haigwood and Susan Baxter for their tremendous work on this project,” CFS director Elizabeth Groppe said. “Susan in particular has spent many long hours on the play composition and production.”Baxter also drew heavily from memories submitted by alumnae, actual quotes from Wolff and research by Gail Porter Mandell, a Wolff biographer and professor emerita of humanistic studies, O’Brien said.“Gail Porter Mandell writes in her biography, ‘Madeleva: One Woman’s Life,’ that Sister Madeleva would never have developed her many gifts without the example of the female role models she found in the convent, the literary world and the Catholic tradition,” Groppe said.This year’s lecture series intertwines the College’s historic example of women’s leadership with that of contemporary religious female figures.“The play, ‘Madeleva: A Play in Several Voices,’ will bring Sister Madeleva to life for a new generation of young women, for whom she is a model of a woman of prayer who surmounted many challenges to become a distinguished scholar, poet, educator and leader in both Catholic higher education and the life of religious communities of women,” Groppe said.The play will take place Thursday, March 20, at 7 p.m. in O’Laughlin Auditorium. Tickets will be free for Saint Mary’s, Notre Dame, Holy Cross, Indiana University South Bend and Bethel College’s students, faculty and staff. Otherwise, tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for senior citizens.Tags: arts, lecture, Madeleva Wolff, saint mary’s, Saint Mary’s College, SMC, Theatre

Not many defenders could produce the flick Eric Dier attempted, with the centre-back’s looping ball falling for Kane to slot home from close range. Nugent had a snap shot as City attempted to respond, before Kane’s fizzing strike deflected in off Huth, wrong-footing the returning Kasper Schmeichel. Nugent drove an effort wide as the visitors attempted to claw one back, yet they were all too open at the back and needed Schmeichel at his best to tip a low Eriksen shot onto the post. Nacer Chadli blazed over the rebound, allowing the visitors to peg them back in the 38th minute as Vardy stretched to impressively turn home Nugent’s cross. Walker had to clear to prevent the striker heading home a second as half-time approached, with Rose producing an exceptional sliding tackle to deny Nugent as he was preparing to pull the trigger. Leonardo Ulloa headed over as half-time was finally called – a period from which City returned from strongly. Nugent turned over under pressure from Walker and – from the resulting corner – Morgan was left unmarked to power home a header. Nabil Bentaleb was partly culpable for the 50th-minute leveller and things could have been worse for the midfielder had his slap on Ulloa been spotted. Huth headed just wide as Spurs continued to wobble – a slide which was halted when Nugent was adjudged to have brought down Rose. It looked a soft decision but Kane did not mind, sending Schmeichel the wrong way from the spot to bring up his first top-flight treble. Kane scooped over as a chance for a fourth passed him by and Chadli turned over at the far post, before substitute Marcin Wasilewski headed over under pressure at the other end. Things were made tougher for Leicester when Schlupp directed past his own goalkeeper, with the ball bouncing off him after Schmeichel saved an Eriksen effort. Nugent’s late strike led to a nervy ending, but Spurs just held out. The eyes of the footballing world were trained on the 21-year-old at White Hart Lane in his final club match before linking up with Roy Hodgson’s men for the matches against Lithuania and Italy. Kane could not be heading away in much better form, having netted his first top-flight treble to help drag out-of-sorts Spurs to a victory in which Jeff Schlupp’s own goal proved just enough to keep rock-bottom City from leaving north London with a result. Press Association Harry Kane’s dream week got even better on Saturday as the Tottenham striker followed his first England call-up with a maiden Premier League hat-trick as embattled Leicester were defeated in a thrilling 4-3 encounter. Goals from Jamie Vardy, Wes Morgan and David Nugent gave Leicester hope as Mauricio Pochettino’s side toiled, although they started well enough as Kane followed-up a tap-in with a drive which deflected in off Robert Huth. Christian Eriksen hit the post as Spurs upped the ante, yet Vardy netted on the break to give the Foxes renewed belief as the home side wilted. Nigel Pearson’s men deservedly levelled five minutes after the break when Morgan was allowed to head home unmarked from a corner, but City’s comeback was soon taken off track. Nugent was adjudged to have taken down Danny Rose and Kane stepped up to slot home the resulting spot-kick to give him a hat-trick, taking him clear as the Premier League’s top scorer – a feat made all the more impressive given the first of those 19 goals did not arrive until November 2. Schlupp’s late own goal and Nugent’s strike at the other end led to an entertaining finale which leaves Leicester’s survival hopes looking bleaker than ever. Pearson plumped for an adventurous 3-4-3 formation here and that tactic forced an early wobble which led Kyle Walker to collide with his own goalkeeper. Hugo Lloris was left in a heap and medics raced onto the pitch to tend to the goalkeeper, who left the field on a stretcher with what is believed to be a gashed knee. It led to Michel Vorm replacing the Spurs captain, who was barely down the tunnel when the feeling inside White Hart Lane changed from concern to elation.
Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was back in familiar surroundings on Monday as he joined the first-team squad for training. Press Association “I’m very excited to go in, obviously I’ve been there for a very long time and I’ve come out for a short period but I’m looking forward going into the new set-up to having a look at what Klopp’s all about tactically, what he demands of his players and how much he’s changed since the Brendan era,” Gerrard told BT Sport last week. “You just watch him in those interviews and you just love watching him. He’s got that infectious personality and I’m excited to go and spend some time with him.” Gerrard, who was at Anfield on Sunday for the 1-0 win over Swansea, will pull on the red shirt again, albeit for the Legends team in a match against their Australian counterparts in Sydney on January 7. Also among those training on Monday were playmaker Philippe Coutinho, who missed the victory over Swansea with a hamstring problem, and Jon Flanagan, who has not featured for the club since May 2014 after a couple of knee operations. The 35-year-old, currently on a post-season Major League Soccer break from Los Angeles Galaxy, was at the club’s Melwood training complex to be put through his paces by Jurgen Klopp. Gerrard is keen to maintain his fitness levels prior to his return to pre-season in California in mid-January ahead of his first full campaign in MLS and recently met with Klopp to finalise the details, having previously agreed the opportunity with former boss Brendan Rodgers.
(REUTERS) – New Zealand moved within reach of a series-levelling win in the third and final Test in Hamilton yesterday after South Africa’s batsmen crashed to 80 for five in their second innings at the close of day four.Proteas captain Faf du Plessis and wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock were each 15 not out and tasked with the rescue job, their side still 95 runs behind New Zealand’s first innings of 489 at Seddon Park.South Africa lead the series 1-0 after an eight-wicket victory in the second match in Wellington.The Proteas’ middle- and lower-order have proved difficult to dislodge throughout the series but their top order again failed to provide a foundation.After Dean Elgar chased a swinging delivery from Colin de Grandhomme and was caught by wicketkeeper BJ Watling, it was a steady stream of specialist batsmen back to the pavilion.Theunis de Bruyn was run-out in comical circumstances when he and Hashim Amla collided attempting a single, while Amla attempted to cut a Jeetan Patel delivery only for the ball to rebound off Watling’s gloves to de Grandhomme at first slip.JP Duminy then failed to play at a Patel arm ball and was bowled before Temba Bavuma completed the misery for the top six when he played a loose stroke to a Matt Henry delivery and was caught by Watling to leave the visitors 59 for five.The hosts were dismissed for 489 before tea, giving them a 175-run lead. de Grandhomme was the last man out for 57 – his maiden Test half-century.de Grandhomme had joined Watling after lunch following Mitchell Santner’s dismissal for 41 in the final over before the break.The situation was tailor-made for the fast-scoring right-hander, with New Zealand having struggled against a tight South Africa attack in the first session.Watling and Henry both fell while trying to attack left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj before Patel was bounced out by Kagiso Rabada with the third new ball.SOUTH Africa 1st innings 314 (Q. de Kock 90, F. du Plessis 53, H.

The 11th-ranked Wisconsin volleyball team willcontinue its home stand this week, facing off against Illinois Wednesday andMichigan Friday.Wisconsin split its series last weekend, losing to MichiganState last Friday and beating Northwestern Saturday. The loss to the Spartanswas the Badgers’ first loss to an unranked opponent since September 2006.”We were definitely pushing too hard and pressing a lotwhere we really need to sit back and play our game and relax,” senior setterJackie Simpson said.Despite dropping four spots in the polls, the Badgers areexcited to get back on the court this week. Head coach Pete Waite said ashorter week to prepare did not hinder his team. He believes it allows the teamto carry the momentum it gained against Northwestern into the next match.Last weekend, the Badgers were plagued by service errors,something the team would like to improve for the next two matches. In theirthird game against Northwestern, they had six service errors. In practice, theteam was able to work hard to make its serves more accurate.”It’s a matter of if you can really put a punch on the ball,make it move and get the passers on their heels,” Waite said. “That’s what wehave to do a better job of. We were doing a good job of that earlier in theseason, and we’ve got to get back to doing that.”The team also focused on playing with a more relaxed style.Waite told his players they need to play aggressive without trying to be “tooperfect” and to play with a passion. “He said that we were kinda being tense and stressed outabout things,” senior co-captain Taylor Reineke said. “He thinks we need torelax a little and just have fun and enjoy our sport, you know, and we reallydidn’t do that this weekend. That’s one thing we are working on now.”Against Illinois, Wisconsin will have to show the passionWaite talked about in practice. The last time the two teams met, Wisconsin won3-1, and they are currently on a five-match winning streak against Illinois.The Illini’s primary weapons are freshmen outside hitterLaura DeBruler and libero Ashley Edinger. Edinger, who is third in the Big Tenin digs, had 37 against Northwestern Friday. DeBruler leads the Big Ten inkills with 485 and averages five kills per game. “As a freshman, [DeBruler] is putting up huge numbers,”Waite said. “She’s a freshman of the year candidate in the conference and veryfew people have slowed her down, so she is good on offense and defense.” Though the Badgers have won their last four meetings againstthe Wolverines, the game against Michigan will prove to be as big as theirfirst meeting this year, when the teams were ranked ninth and 10th respectively.Since losing to the Badgers 3-0, the Wolverines have lostsix of their last 11 matches and are on a three-game losing streak. They havesince dropped out of the top 25 as well.Though they have not been performing well as of late,Michigan still ranks in the top five of most of the major categories, includingteam kills, assists and hitting percentage. It also leads the Big Ten in digs,averaging 18.33 as a team per game. “Michigan was ranked in the top ten earlier this year,”Waite said. “They’ve been taking some losses here and there and splitting onthe weekend, so they dropped out, but they are still a very strong team.”The Wolverines are led by senior outside hitter KatieBrudzinski, who ranks fifth in the Big Ten in kills, averaging 4.41 per game.She also leads the league in service aces, averaging almost .5 per game. UW will attempt to sweep the series this week and hopeleague leader PSU drops a match, as the Badgers are two games behind the NittanyLions and play them in College Park next weekend. But, the team is not worriedabout future games; it is focused on the task at hand. “I think we have always done a good job on focusing on thewhole ‘1-0’ concept, and I think that is something we have always done as ateam, since I’ve been here this past four years,” Simpson said. “The Big Ten issuch a strong conference and anything can happen on any given night, and weknow that.”
Comments Syracuse and Villanova were in a scoreless tie in the 56th minute and neither team was breaking through. The Orange, two games below .500 at the time, needed a boost.That’s when freshman Megan Hunsberger stepped up and scored the decisive goal, propelling the team to a 1-0 victory.‘Tina (Romagnuolo) played her a great ball down the left side, and she took a great touch across the defender,’ SU head coach Phil Wheddon said. ‘The defender had a choice to either bring her down and foul her or let her go. She chose to let her go, and Megan struck the ball past the goalkeeper in the top corner.’Hunsberger’s game-winning goal, the first of her Syracuse career, started a four-game winning streak and helped to turn the team’s season around. The next game, she scored a goal against Seton Hall and contributed with an assist to Romagnuolo in a 4-1 triumph. Her recent success, combined with her experience playing competitive soccer in high school, has given her a significant spot on the roster of a Syracuse (7-6-3, 6-4 Big East) team that has qualified for the Big East tournament.‘She’s done really well,’ said Romagnuolo, a junior midfielder. ‘Obviously, when she first got here I think she was a little nervous, but now she’s coming out of her shell and playing really well. She’s really good at crossing the ball.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHunsberger’s positive energy and ability to contribute at multiple positions has enabled her to play in 14 games this season in her first year. She started against Central Connecticut and Big East opponent Pittsburgh. She has played primarily in the midfield, but is flexible to other positions, such as outside back.‘She’s fought hard in every training session, and when she gets on the field she’s a very good technical player,’ Wheddon said. ‘She’s played a lot of different positions, which is a coach’s luxury.’Soccer has been at the forefront of Hunsberger’s life ever since she was a child. As a teenager, she was a member of the U-15 United States national team, a team that traveled to California to play elite club teams.‘The U-15 national team was an outrageous experience,’ Hunsberger said. ‘It prepared me for the speed of play in college soccer and playing with that level of competition was unbelievable.’Along with the national team, Hunsberger participated in the Olympic Development program, played for club teams Albertson Fury and AC Perugia, and excelled at Freedom High School in Bethlehem, Pa.‘Soccer, friends, that’s pretty much it,’ she said.Along with her soccer skills, Hunsberger’s sense of humor and infectious personality off the field also keep her teammates laughing.‘She’s really funny,’ assistant coach Abby Crumpton said. ‘She’s a great soccer player, but is also really great for chemistry. She keeps us laughing and keeps our spirits high at the right times.’Certain aspects of the transition to collegiate-level soccer have been difficult, such as the physical style of play and fast-paced action. But Hunsberger has seamlessly made the jump from being a high school star to a Syracuse role player to start her career.‘Playing every day definitely helps you, and playing with different players expands your horizon and knowledge of the game,’ she said. ‘You understand it more. It’s a different experience. It helps you out.’Although Hunsberger has already started two games and scored two goals, she has higher aspirations. ‘I definitely want to get into the NCAA tournament and maybe after college play for a professional team.’firstname.lastname@example.org Published on October 16, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Trevor: email@example.com | @TrevorHass Facebook Twitter Google+
