Published on December 4, 2019 at 12:02 pm Contact Andrew: [email protected] | @CraneAndrew Syracuse released its full schedule for the 2020 season on Tuesday, which starts with four straight home games to open the season. After that, the Orange spend three consecutive weekends on the road — including the Atlantic Coast Conference opener against Duke in Durham, North Carolina.The only new addition to the schedule from last year is Binghamton, who replaced Navy. Each of SU’s other 11 opponents are the same from 2019.Last season, the Orange (9-5, 2-2 ACC) were eliminated by Loyola in the first round of the NCAA tournament, but picked up one of the Greyhounds’ best players in transfer Chase Scanlan. The sophomore will immediately add to an SU offense that graduated Nate Solomon and Bradley Voigt. SU will also get Tucker Dordevic back after the junior missed all of last season with a foot injury, and returns starting goalie Drake Porter, too.Here is Syracuse’s schedule for the upcoming year (conference games are in bold). It’ll play the final two home games at Cicero-North Syracuse High School due to Carrier Dome renovations, and this season marks the first time since 2014 that the Orange will play half of their games on the road.Feb. 7 — Colgate (Carrier Dome)AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFeb. 15 — Binghamton (Carrier Dome)Feb. 23 — Army West Point (Carrier Dome)Feb. 28 — Hobart (Carrier Dome)March 7 — at Johns Hopkins (Homewood Field)March 14 — at Rutgers (Shi Stadium)March 21 — at Duke (Koskinen Stadium)March 28 — Notre Dame (Cicero-North Syracuse High School)April 3 — at Albany (Casey Stadium)April 7 — at Cornell (Schoellkopf Field)April 11 — North Carolina (Cicero-North Syracuse High School)April 18 — at Virginia (Klockner Stadium) Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
Ugo AliogoThe Flag Officer Western Naval Command, Rear Admiral Sag Abbah, has called on government to focus on reviving Inter-house sports competitions as a way of promoting grassroots and producing young talents for the country.Abbah who disclosed this last week in Lagos at the 2018 Inter-House Sports Competition of Nigeria Navy Secondary School, Navy Town, Ojo, said the organisation of more sports competitions in Secondary Schools would help to promote the spirit of healthy competition and sportsmanship amongst students. He urged those that excelled during the competition to use it as a platform to go higher, noting that those of them that would not perform as they expect themselves to should it as a platform for learning and see how they can improve, â€œthis particular occasion is a breeding ground for the country.â€Abbah who was represented at the event by the Commodore, Dickson Olisemenoghor, said there were a lot of innovations and creativity shown by the students, stating that this would not have been possible without the efforts of the Commandant of the School.â€œI am not surprised that they have attained this feat and the Chief of Navy Staff has provided us with the necessary infrastructure that we need to get to this level,â€ he noted.In her remarks, the Commandant of the School, Jobi Stevens, said the competition has provided the platform for four houses to compete blue (Wey), green (Sorch), red (Aduwo) and the purple (Adelanwa) for medals.She explained that there is a lot of improvement and energy invested in training and preparing the students for the competition, adding that they are committed in maintaining the standard of competition.Stevens expressed satisfaction with the performance of the students in the competition, while noting that there is room for improvement, â€œI am satisfied with their performance, but that does not mean that there is no room for improvement. I see talents in these kids and I hope they build on what they have learnt here.â€Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
MASON CITY — The US Senate on Tuesday approved a $483 billion coronavirus aid package after Congress and the White House reached a deal. More than $320 billion of that funding would go to boost a small-business payroll loan program that ran out of money last week. Iowa Senator Joni Ernst spoke with members of the Mason City Chamber of Commerce earlier on Tuesday via a video conference call. She says numerous businesses were not able to take advantage of the initial funding stream of $349 billion in what was billed as the Paycheck Protection Program. “That speaks to the popularity of the program and the desperate need for small businesses to be supported, and because it is a forgivable loan, as long as 75% of those expenses are going towards payroll, it is just a great opportunity to keep employees on payroll, keep them with their employer, receiving those benefits. That is very, very important.” Ernst says she’s hoping applications for the new funding can be approved as soon as possible. “We are asking, until we can get the funding into the PPP, we are asking the SBA and those lenders continue to process those loan applications so that when we do have the funds available, they can be pushed out of the door as quickly as possible.”The measure also would provide hospitals with $75 billion more and $25 billion to implement a nationwide virus testing program to facilitate reopening the economy. The legislation now heads over to the House, where it’s scheduled to be taken up on Thursday.
