Saturday Marks 50 Years Since Lamar Tragedy

first_imgLamar’s current coach is doing his best to shape his program in the image of those squads Terrell built in the 1960s, and Clark makes sure to tell the story of the men whose lives were cut short in the 1968 crash and make sure their legacy lives on. He displays a hand-painted picture of the deceased athletes in his office – it used to hang in McDonald Gym – and the trophy from Lamar’s mile relay win in the 1968 Border Olympics. Both items are a key part of the story Clark tells to prospective Cardinals. Considering the emotional impact of the tragedy and the amount of talent and leadership that Lamar lost that day, the team rebounded rather quickly. The next season the Cardinals took home second place at the conference championships under Carl Babcock, and two seasons later Big Red had its first conference crown since the tragedy with the 1971 title. “It all started two weeks after the accident. Our conference track meet was scheduled, and we thought we were going to win that year,” said Smith. “We’d finished second to Abilene Christian every year before, but we thought we had it that time. We lost all our best athletes, but the guys that did perform managed to score 47 points and finish fourth of five teams. That showed a lot of character. When we won in 1971 that was our first Southland Conference championship. Some of the members of the 1971 team were freshmen in 1968, and they did their best to dedicate their performance to the 1968 team.” Adding to their success in Iowa, Richardson joined the trio of Favazza, Thomas and Clewis to run the anchor leg of the sprint-medley relay. With Richardson setting a blistering pace in the final half mile, the Cardinals recorded a fourth-place finish in the event. Despite the weight of the tragedy on the athletics department and the university, the remaining members of the track and field team elected to compete in the Southland Conference Championships the following week. Vern Crowder, an associate professor in the physical education department, was charged with the responsibility of getting the team prepared for the championship meet. The shorthanded squad rallied to finish fourth that season led by two first-place finishes from Doug Boone. The Cardinals eyed the 1968 season as a benchmark for the successful program that Terrell had built during his time in Beaumont. Terrell, who took over the program in 1955, methodically built it into national respectability. The gem of that program was the mile-relay squad of sophomores Delaune, Favazza, Clewis and junior Thomas. “This program has done many different things to keep the memory of Coach Terrell and the Cardinals alive,” said Clark. “When letter jackets were a part of college athletics, Coach Babcock handed out letter jackets with blue wings on them that commemorated the 1968 team. The football team (also coached by Ty Terrell) once had blue helmets as well.” “It has to tell the story of those men who were representative of Lamar and Southeast Texas,” said Clark. “They were good athletes and respectful young men who you just want to have remembered. To me it should have a way of telling a story that shows what they represent. They are the foundation for this program. I’m really mindful of not just their achievements but how they carried themselves as well. In the time that has passed since that tragic day, many things have changed. The campus has gone through several changes and upgrades, new buildings have been built, records have fallen and championships have been won, but the memory of that tragic day has never been lost on the people of the Golden Triangle. There is a daily reminder for anyone who happens to pass by the university’s track and field venue. The home of LU track and field bears the name of the coach they lost on that dark day – Ty Terrell Track. “It was really devastating to them,” said Lamar head coach Trey Clark. “They were some special guys and a special coach that did a great job of representing this university and Texas as a whole, not just athletically but how they acted and carried themselves. And there was an impact not just here but in Des Moines as well. When we returned to Drake in 1999 an elderly gentleman at the airport found me and said, ‘I’ve looked every year since 1968 for a team to come back. That tragedy had a profound impact on me.'” “Coach Ty Terrell built our track program from the ground up and crafted it into a nationally-renowned powerhouse,” said Director of Athletics Marco Born. “His legacy resounds today in the track facility that our student-athletes get to practice on every day, the caliber of student-athlete we’re able to recruit to Beaumont, and the championships we’ve won before and since that tragic day on April 28, 1968. But the true legacy of Terrell and the six Cardinals who passed in that plane crash 50 years ago is their love of the sport that is evident even now.” As for a permanent memorial at Lamar, no definitive plans yet exist. But when the time does finally come, Clark knows just how to tell the story. In addition to the pilot and Coach Terrell, the members of the LU track and field team who perished that day included Randy Clewis, Mike Favazza, Don Delaune, John Richardson, and Waverly Thomas. Almost lost in the darkness of the tragedy was a silver lining that the tragedy could have been worse for the university. Another athlete – Johnny Fuller – also made the trip to Des Moines, Iowa, with the rest of the team. A multi-sport athlete for the Cardinals, Fuller was selected to compete in Mexico City’s Olympic Stadium prior to the Drake Relays in an effort to build excitement for the upcoming Summer Olympics. After spending two weeks in Mexico City, Fuller came home for a day before heading to the Drake Relays. Since he had spent significant time away from his family, Fuller elected to catch an earlier flight home and he left Des Moines separate from his teammates. “That weekend we didn’t have an event at home so I was out at the beach. I found out about the accident when I heard about it on a radio station in Houston early in the morning on Sunday,” said Joe Lee Smith, Lamar’s sports information director from 1963-79 and 1993-96. “At first I was totally shocked, and it still affects me every year. This date never passes without me pausing to remember. I was 29 at the time, and I traveled with them several times. They came to my office all the time, so I was particularly close with several members of the track team. Coach Terrell was a mentor of mine when I first came to Lamar in 1963 and a hell of a coach. They were all good athletes, good students, and great people.” The team was returning from a late season meet in Iowa – the Drake Relays – a nationally competitive meet that continues to attract the top programs from around the nation. Tragically, the flight was on its initial approach into the Beaumont Municipal Airport and crashed just a mile short of the runway. It is the common-accepted belief that McCall suffered from coronary arteriosclerosis and suffered heart attack upon approach. Story by Cooper Welch, Lamar AthleticsBEAUMONT, Texas — In the early morning hours of Sunday, April 28th, 1968, what was then known as Lamar State College of Technology suffered through the darkest period in its history. Many awoke that morning to the news that seven of its brightest stars were extinguished when five members of the track and field team, head coach Ty Terrell, and pilot E.W. McCall were killed in a plane crash on their way back from the Drake Relays. Saturday marks 50 years since that tragic day overwhelmed not only the university but the entire Golden Triangle. Just days before leaving for Des Moines, the Cards’ mile-relay team made the nation take notice when they posted one of the country’s top times at the Border Olympics. Big Red posted a similar result at the Drake Relays as one of the two schools to beat the meet record in the event, and finishing second to only Texas. The Cardinals’ time of 3:07.3 was the third fastest in the world at the time. At the end of the day when my career is over I hope to have left a legacy that comes close to theirs.” “The team was still sleeping,” Fuller told the Beaumont Enterprise. “I told one of the guys, ‘tell coach Terrell I flew home’ and that was the last time I saw them.” “I was 18 and that was pretty traumatic for me,” said Barry Collins to the Beaumont Enterprise. Collins was on the ’68 team but was not part of the group which qualified for the Drake Relays. “It was denial at first. It took a while for me to regain my focus. It was tough for some of us and for others it was a motivating tool.”last_img read more

Lifting in the spotlight after Folau citing

first_imgFolau has been cited for a tackle in the air against Ireland, but it’s not the contest for which he was sent to the sin bin.Folau was yellow-carded in the 31st minute over a contest with Ireland skipper Peter O’Mahony, where the latter fell awkwardly and was stretchered off, but it was a kick-off contest earlier that caught the citing commissioner’s eyes.In both instances, O’Mahony was lifted by teammate CJ Stander, leaving him in a precarious place in the air, an issue Haylett-Petty suggested was more dangerous than any contact in the air.”Being a player that’s often in the air, you want to be protecting the players but I felt like last night that one-man lift, they’re obviously putting their own player in danger there,” he said.”Any time there was any sort of contact in the air, he fell pretty badly. So, I feel like if anything we should be getting rid of that.”Aerial contests have become a grey area under a World Rugby crackdown on player safety and it’s an area that the Wallabies are vulnerable to be targeted in, with the weapon of Folau in the air used so often.”I think obviously that’s a huge strength for us and they’re going to try and take that away from us,” Haylett-Petty said.”I feel like the fans probably want to see 15 on 15 and a good battle and it was, it was a great Test series and obviously we don’t want to make any excuses.”The Irish were really good and it could’ve gone either way in both those last two Test matches.”The Wallabies and Waratahs star was cited over the incident in the ninth minute, after ‘placing his left hand on O’Mahony’s chest’ in the aerial battle.“This action pulls O’Mahony over and he topples to the ground,’ citing commissioner Michael O’Leary said.Folau’s actions were described as ‘strikingly similar’ to the contest for which he was yellow-carded.Because he was carded during the match as well, Folau will have to front a disciplinary hearing later this week, with his availability for the Waratahs’ crunch game against the Rebels under question.Any possible suspension would be a major headache for the Waratahs, with Michael Hooper also set to miss the match with a hamstring strain.Folau’s aerial battles weren’t the only speaking point after the game, with a controversial penalty going against hooker Tolu Latu, who put in his best international performance.Latu was over the ball but was penalised for not releasing, despite a replay showing that he wasn’t the tackler.It was an incident he admitted was frustrating, but didn’t decide the game.”Looking back on it, I thought that I had all rights to the ball, so some calls you get and some calls you don’t,” he said.”So, it’s pretty frustrating to be honest, but just got to move on and try and move on from that and get things rolling again.”The Wallabies lost the third June Test in Sydney on Saturday night, 20-16, with Ireland taking the series 2-1 overall.last_img read more

Zamora is the Spanish Liverpool

In Zamora they keep their feet on the ground, although there are reasons that invite euphoria. Since the Burgos Promises, on the second day of the championship, he will get a point in his direct confrontation, there is not a single team that has not been defeated in you to you. Even so, David Movilla, his coach, does not forgive the slightest mistake, knowing that the road is stony and the Playoff does not understand bad days. With 46 points out of 48 possible, of course an unbeatable situation, the coach released a strong criticism about the state of the team as soon as he defeated Atlético Cristo by two goals to one: “We have defended frankly badly. They have generated us much more than we expected and much more than we should allow. There have been parts that have been a street runner. Playing this lottery we will miss points, sure“.However, smiles are common in the press room, as long as conformism does not prevail. “I am satisfied, but I think that the balances are better to do at the end of the season. Defeats will come, bad times, but this team is prepared for those adversities. The strange thing is what they have done so far. The best is yet to come. “Always with a marked style, defined by his captain Dani Hernández in an interview with AS: “We really like to subdue the opponent and pressure the opposing team. We like to have the ball and enjoy playing soccer. “For the public of the Ruta de la Plata and everyone who has had the chance to see Spanish Liverpool. As with the ‘reds’, fate will say, but if the road is also the goal, in Zamora they can be satisfied. The Zamora is a familyThe pre-season paradoxIn four of the games played in pre-season, he did not give the feeling, much less, that the Zamora was going to raze in such a way. Of course, the faces were seen with higher category teams. He tied against Guijuelo and won 1-0 at Salamanca. He lost 0-1 to the Cultural Leonesa and, here is the great paradox, he was severely punished by the subsidiary of Sporting!, against which they lost by five goals to one. Who would say that four months later would be the first Asturian team the rival in the Copa del Rey and that the result would be diametrically opposite. But by then, the situation had completely changed. Trust is everything and Zamora wasted it on all four sides. The second round will be another story. Or not…Surprising self-criticism Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool cup every week covers the international press for what is being a historic Premier League in regards to an admirable balance of results. The ‘reds’ lead the table with 58 points out of 60 possible Or, what is the same, 19 wins and a draw. In Spain, there is a team that has nothing to envy. With a much lower budget and without so many focuses on the Ruta de la Plata, the Zamora rides with firm foot towards the Second Division B of our football, in a historic year full of records and with exactly the same record as the current European champion. In his trees, today there was much illusion and not a single pinch of coal.The Zamora, today, adds 19 consecutive victories, 18 of them in the league championship. It is not an anecdotal figure, since no Third Division team had achieved this balance throughout history. Already exceeded the record of 15 consecutive matches of Arandina and now aims to arrive at 20, precisely from Arandina, although with the nuance that they arrived in different seasons. They will ask, what is the remaining victory that makes the Zamorano team carry 19 meetings celebrating? Those of David Movilla not only impose their law before clubs of the same category, but also gave the machado copera before a giant of LaLiga SmartBank: the Sporting.That day, Sergio Garcia He established himself as a hero with a double to overthrow a higher-ranking team. “We had no respect for Zamora and we gave the first half“said José Alberto. Beyond that, the truth is that the Third Division club joined together to impose their football, something that caught a Sporting surprise that starred in some of the negative surprises of the first round. Now, It is Mallorca that will travel to the Ruta de la Plata, with the mind set on permanence and on breaking down the most consistent wall, not only of Spanish football, but of the entire European landscape. Because since that distant month of August, in which the competition began, nobody has managed to knock down the zamoranos. Undisputed MeritThe Playoff will give them a second chanceThis is the Third Division of Spanish football. It doesn’t matter being first, breaking records or making history. Everything is decided by a tie, in which many more factors come into play: displacement, injuries, weather, arbitration, fitness … The Zamora knows it firsthand. Last season Group VIII finished in first position and everything seemed to indicate the return to Second B. However, first with Haro Deportivo and then with Alcobendas, the shipwreck clubor and condemned to fight another year in the fourth national category. Now, except for hecatombe, he already knows that he will fight again at the crossroads to reach the top: after the conclusion of the first round get 13 points to the second classified and 21! to the fifth. Of course, seen what was seen, in the first half of the season, it would be a catastrophe to let such income go. read more


Eibar – Athletic | Shipwreck of the Atleti in Ipurua

first_imgThe rojiblancos looked for their clothes in the rain matching the intensity of the Eibar in duels and disputes, the rhythm, scratching possession. The break came after João tried to overcome Dmitrovic with a medium and medium petroleum jelly and Vitolo stumbled into the area and fell while Correa, who started the opportunity to pass the ball and picked up the rebound, collided knee to knee with the goalkeeper.To wait for Eibar after rest, while the first ball played was won by Saul. Statement of intents. The match was to be played by combining under and a few meters from the door of Dmitrovic. The team found Vitolo, looked for João, active, without the abrupt gesture of late, carried the ball from side to side a strap that, when taking a step inside, left the right wing for Arias to threaten their careers. The Eibar, neutralized, waited. The minutes passed in Ipurua without the rojiblanco goal coming. Simeone behind him had Adam, Lodi, Llorente and Hermoso with three kids. Morata nodded softly in the center of Saul. A Saul who walked the reverse path of other parties in 71 ’: Lodi entered, the youth player went to the middle. Mendilibar responded by removing the lining to his new signing: Cristóforo. Simeone sought the comeback in the final minutes on the quarry. “I have nothing else,” he seemed to shout at the box, the sterile team, the short staff, the market still open. Camel came in, João went upset, Clemente debuted, Oblak tried to avoid the inevitable before Expósito, that Eibar had let go. Three minutes were enough for an Atlético who broke the changes. Once he was able to take out the miracle hand, but the next no longer. It was 89 ’when Eibar merged again into a hug. That ball of Expósito undressed Atlético again in the constant rain, in the middle of January. And the usual problems.

Without the mud that formed in past battles and against Atlético more offensive than yesterday he could go to Cholo (Correa, Vitolo; Morata, João), The Mendilibar team seemed to be a fencing master, fast and efficient, looking to hit the lunge from the first play. It was all his. The intention, the dominion, the occasions, the highest pressure, the hybrid grass. And Atlético, meanwhile, all cracks in the defense of the stopped ball. Neither Oblak nor the VAR could avoid the inevitable. They just delayed it.Because the first time Eibar approached the Slovenian goalkeeper, Pedro León did it by throwing a foul like a grenade About his goal. Oblak deactivated it with his miracle hand. And Enrich’s subsequent header, headline him and not Charles, too. Five later there were all the men of Mendilibra again before him, sniffing blood. Orellana had just taken a corner to Arias. Eibar took it from the right, Enrich prolonged, the man with the mask, Burgos, nodded to the net. The celebration was stopped by a pennant in the air. Offside.

The first time that the Argentine appeared in the game was in the 25th minute to finish off without a conviction or soul a center of Vitolo, the first time the rojiblancos found their backs to Eibar. Shortly before Dmitrovic took a good hand against João and Cote would blind Morata once. He had to throw and decided to pass, 35 minutes.

Madrid have not won a Classic league at home since 2014

first_imgBalance. Have been disputed 243 Official Classics balances with 96 victories of Barcelona, 95 triumphs of Real Madrid and 52 draws. In the Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid and Barça have faced 97 times, with a clear advantage for the locals who added 49 wins, 22 draws and only gave up 26 defeats.Goals The 802 official goals of the 243 Classics played to date are distributed as follows: 403 from Real Madrid and 399 from Barcelona. The ‘centennial’ goals of Madrid were made by Barinaga (100), Gento (200), Zamorano (300) and Cristiano (400), while those of the Barça team were scored by César (100), Schuster (200) and Luis Enrique ( 300).Total draw. The balance of 179 classics disputed in the League history It is fully balanced: 72 wins and 286 goals for Madrid and 72 victories and 288 goals for Barcelona. There were 35 draws. If Barcelona wins today at the Santiago Bernabéu, it will beat Real Madrid in victories in the classic league for the first time in its history.Three years of drought. The Real Madrid does not win a Official classic from the second leg of the Spanish Super Cup 2017 (2-0). Since then, Barcelona has added four victories and three draws to the eternal rival and today could equal a historic streak of the Classics: the eight consecutive games without losing Real Madrid (between March 2001 and December 2003). Barcelona too linked seven Classics in a row without defeats between April 2011 and January 2012, but he lost what would have been the eighth of the series: 1-2 in April 2012, with the goal of Cristiano Ronaldo in the Camp Nou that finally decanted that League in favor of the whites with records of points (100) and goals (121). Good omen Real Madrid have only played a Classic immediately after losing a European competition match at home. Four days after the defeat against Tirol Wacker (0-1), in the Recopa de Europa 1970-71, the white team lost again in Santiago Bernabéu against Barcelona (0-1 on October 25, 1970, goal of Zabalza). The good news, from a cabalistic point of view, is that It is the only European tie that Madrid has overcome after losing the one way home (won 0-2 in Innsbruck, Austria, in the second leg).After the defeat. The balance of Real Madrid in the league match immediately after a European defeat at home is ten wins (the last four in a row), five draws and six losses (the last one was a 2-3 in the Bernabéu against Real Zaragoza , three days after losing 0-2 at the Bernabéu against Barcelona in the semifinals of the 2010-11 Champions League).League goals. In the last day the Barcelona beat Real Madrid as a team with the most goals scored in the history of LaLiga (6,151 versus 6,150). Real Madrid had 42 goals ahead of the Barca team at the time of Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, heading for Juventus, and 42 are the goals that the Portuguese star has scored in Serie A since then. Real Madrid had been the leader in this classification, uninterruptedly, since September 29, 1963. In fact, it had a maximum advantage of 139 goals (3,695 versus 3,556) on September 22, 1990.
