Women of Troy host two conference foes

first_imgThe USC women’s swimming and diving team will face top Pac-10 rivals California and Stanford at the McDonald’s Swim Stadium Friday and Saturday, with the Women of Troy eager to set the pace against some of the toughest competition they have faced this season.Quick starts · The USC women’s swimming team will host two dual meets in less than 24 hours. After losing a large contingent of seniors, the Women of Troy will rely heavily on their young swimmers for points. – Eric Burse | Daily Trojan “The fun thing about this weekend is that this is perhaps the most evenly matched competition between the three different schools in the last four to five years,” USC assistant coach Jeremy Kipp said.Cal, the reigning NCAA champions, is out for revenge after last year’s dual meet in Berkley, when the Women of Troy ran up a victorious score on a stunned Bears squad.“We are going to do what we can to take a few wins and make it close,” USC coach Dave Salo said. “With the graduation of Rebecca Soni, Katy Houston, Kristen Lahey and Rachael Waller, we are going to rely on a very young team to follow up with last year’s upset win over Cal.”The battle against Stanford will be another story, however, as the Trojans are looking to close the gap on the No. 4 team. Last year’s meet came down to the last few races, so this time the team will have to get off the walls fast and finish hard if they hope to capture victory.“Stanford is undefeated this season and looks to be among the favorites to win the NCAA championships this year,” Salo said. “We are excited and ready to compete with both teams.”The competition will also mark the last dual meet for senior captains Dina Hegazy and Krissy Forelli. Both women were All-Americans at last year’s NCAAs and will be looking to make the championship team once again this season.The Trojans to watch on both days will be sophomore Katinka Hosszu, junior Lyndsay DePaul and freshman Haley Anderson. Hozzsu and DePaul are among the best all-around swimmers in the NCAA and will be important in the distance, medley and sprint events. Anderson has proven herself to be USC’s leading distance lady, and the team will be looking to her to start off the meet with a win.Sophomore diver Victoria Ishimatsu will be another key competitor for the Trojans on both days, particularly against Stanford, which has one of the top diving teams in the country.“One area to watch and will be critical are the divers,” Kipp said. “We could possibly go a 1-2-3 sweep in both boards, which would be a huge advantage.”Although USC will rely heavily on the high-scoring teammates, what will ultimately dictate the outcome will be the smaller, yet valuable, efforts of the swimmers fighting for third, fourth and fifth, where points can add up and ultimately decide competitions.“The meet will be won on freshmen like Jessie Schmitt and Christel Simms who will need to step up big time,” Kipp said.last_img read more

Powered by Firework Kumar Sangakkara, the Sri Lankan batting legend advised young Rishabh Pant to keep things very easy while batting and keeping, if he wants to gather his confidence after a number of successive failures. Even though Pant started his Test career with centuries against the big fishes England and Australia, he has been struggling to find his natural game and his place in the Indian team lately.Advertisement Image Courtesy: CricToday“It’s important for him (Pant) to keep things simple and understand his weakness. Once he is able to work on these areas, he needs to strategise and plan, because for him right now he needs to keep things simple and not be under pressure,” said the former Lanka captain.“It’s also important for someone to talk to him on his batting and keep him off the pressure and let him be free with his game,” he added.Advertisement The veteran keeper also reckons that Pant must improve his anticipation behind the stumps as the youngster has been struggling against Bangladesh, in the ongoing T20I series.“As a wicketkeeper, it’s important to be neat and tidy behind the stumps which will give him confidence and put him in a better position to help his captain in calling for reviews,” Sanga advised.Advertisement Read also:Lance Klusener believes Rishabh Pant needs to brush aside his flamboyancy in order to be betterIn safe hands: Adam Gilchrist tells Rishabh Pant not to try and emulate MS Dhoni Advertisementlast_img read more
