Tom Heath looked at the Bowdoin Park Classic in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Saturday as a barometer for his Christian Brothers Academy cross country team. “We’ll find out where we are,” Heath said prior to the race. What he found out is that his Colts are in pretty good shape for a run at the Nike Team Nationals. Bowdoin Park will host the Northeast Region qualifier on Nov. 24 and the Colts got their first look at the course and some of their opposition Saturday. Competing against a field loaded with ranked teams, the Colts finished a strong third behind a pair of teams that have been ranked in the Top 25 in the country, Brookline, Mass., which won with 66 points and New York State power Shenendehowa (96). The Colts were third, but first among New Jersey teams, with 117 points. Jackson Memorial, last year’s state champions, was eighth (178). “We did OK,” said Heath. “We were hoping to beat one of them [Brookline or Shenendehowa]. We beat a lot of good teams, just not enough.” Shaker (No. 3 in New York State) and Jackson (No. 8 in the Northeast) were the ranked teams that CBA beat. The Colts wanted to beat one of the two teams ahead of them to give themselves a crack at gaining a national ranking. Only 36 seconds separated the Colts five scorers on Saturday. Vin Ferrer posted a 16:59 on the Bowdoin Park course and was 13th overall. Brendon Pierson was 21st (17:20) and Chris LaMorte (17:20) was 24th. Kyle Havard (17:27) and Ben Horel (17:35) were the Colts fourth and fifth scorers in 27th and 32nd, respectively. The Colts got a better feel for the course where two teams will automatically qualify for the Dec. 1 NTN in Portland, Ore. “It was a difficult course,” said Heath. “We were not aggressive early. It’s uphill for the first half, which is twice as long as Holmdel Park. “The last half is downhill and there was not as much movement as I thought,” he added. “I’m glad we went. The course is deceiving. Now we have a better idea of it.” The Colts did little to harm their No. 6 ranking in the Northeast or top ranking in the state. Next up for the CBA will be the Shore Coaches Invitational at familiar Holmdel Park on Oct. 6. BY TIM MORRIS Staff Writer

The cane cutter who went berserk and severed one of the hands of the mother of his three children was arraigned on Wednesday for attempted murder when he made his appearance at the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court on the East Coast of Demerara.Warren Dennis was accused of maliciously wounding Alana Hazel causing her serious bodily harm on April 23 at Beterverwagting, East Coast Demerara. He was not required to plead to the indictable charge when it was read to him at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court.Remanded: Warren DennisIt was reported that on the day in question, the woman went to the man’s home and an argument ensued. It was during the argument that he picked up a cutlass and carried out the brutal attack.In a bid to escape from the man, the injured woman jumped through a window and ended up in a nearby trench. As persons rushed to her assistance, the suspect was seen running into the nearby cane field with the cutlass in his hands.She was picked up and taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where she was admitted as a patient in serious condition. The suspect and the Police Constable attached to the Mess Hall had been separated for quite some time owing to his abusive behaviour.Hazel reportedly moved on with her life, but would frequent the man’s house, claiming that she would visit her eldest son, who resided with the suspect.Dennis was remanded to prison, and the matter was scheduled to be called again on May 8.
SACRAMENTO – Members of a California National Guard military police company accused of stealing donations intended for Southern California wildfire victims were cleared Wednesday of criminal wrongdoing. A military investigator’s report confirmed the soldiers took items last week from a fire station used by relief workers near the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a copy of the findings obtained by The Associated Press. However, the report indicates volunteers told the soldiers to “help themselves to any supplies.” Volunteers then called and reported a theft as the soldiers carried the goods away.

So the support we’re getting from the community, the football community, has been really overwhelming.“The football community, the football family is really quite caring at times like this.“Cardiff City will be involved with the investigation.

Search teams have found no sign of a wreckage or survivors.Cardiff chairman Mehmet Dalman said all at the club were “still praying” for positive news and revealed that the flight on the Piper Malibu plane, which experts described as “risky”, was not booked by the Premier League club.Mr Dalman said: “We spoke to the player and asked him if he wanted us to make arrangements for his flight which, quite frankly, would have been commercial. He declined and made his own arrangements.“I can’t tell you who arranged the flight because I don’t know at this stage – but it certainly wasn’t Cardiff City.” Dalman revealed that Cardiff manager Neil Warnock was “in a state of shock” after hearing the news, as his former club Nantes held a vigil in the heart of the city.He said: “Neil is human and he’s affected as much as we all are.“We need to get on and do the right things but at the moment there’s a vacuum of information – it’s very unsettling.“We’re still praying, we still have prayers and we’ve got to be doing that, we’ve got to make sure.“Especially for his father and mother who are so far away and with Nantes’ fans – that’s his fanbase.“Nantes is a big club and we’ve got to make sure we do the right thing by them and we need to be doing the right thing and keeping up communications to our own fans. We do have to keep them informed as to what information we get.

RANKED gameday cracker SORRY latest 4 4 Scarves and flowers are being laid outside Cardiff’s stadium 4 Mr Rosenschein told The Sun that the Piper Malibu plane that Sala was travelling in had a questionable safety record.He said: “When I looked it up it has had over 160 serious crashes that’s a fairly large number – 55 of them were fatal accidents that’s a large number for an aircraft that does not have such a large production number.“Since the year 2000 there have been 24 fatal crashes.“One can’t compare what we call general aviation or light aircraft flying with commercial flying which is extremely safe and accidents are very rare.“General aviation is flown primarily by amateurs. These will be people wealthy enough to buy an aircraft who generally don’t have a great deal experience or recency – although one doesn’t know the experience of the pilot involved.”Mr Rosenshein said there was little chance the plane would have been fitted with a black box or similar device to aid rescuers in the search for it.He said: “There are some private aircraft where they have this but it is an unlikely scenario. The important thing now is to continue with the search and rescue.“If they survived the ditching as we call it and got into a life raft then the chances of them being rescued remain reasonable but if they got into the water then at this time of the year the water is very cold and it’s not a survival situation.”Meanwhile, plans for a 70ft Sala banner at the Cardiff City Stadium have been drawn up.The banner will include the flags of both Wales and Argentina, and say: “We never saw you play and never saw you score, but Emiliano our beautiful Bluebird we will love you forever more.” Dalman added: “It’s a tragedy that I have never faced before. There was so much optimism in there and having a young man who had his career ahead of him go missing like that is a shock.“It has affected the club enormously. Our hearts go out to his family, especially those very far away. It’s a distressing time. We feel very saddened by it.”Aviation expert and former pilot Alastair Rosenschein has claimed Sala should not have been making the journey at that time of night in that type of aircraft.He said: “It’s very surprising that they should ask to descend at night over water in a single engine aircraft. It’s already a fairly risky crossing to do in a single engine aircraft, especially in winter and definitely at night. There are icing problems too.“Why he would have asked to descend one can only speculate, but one of the reasons to descend could have been to get out of an icing layer where ice forms on the wings or on the propeller so the aircraft descends to slightly warmer air.“The other reason could have been to remain clear of cloud but at night you’re not going to see anything anyway, so it really is unexplained at the moment.“It’s a strange thing to do though to go and fly over water with one engine at night in winter because if your engine goes you’re going in the water.” Nantes fans gathered in the city after the news about Sala emerged Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update Emiliano Sala booked his own private flight across the English Channel after turning down a commercial flight from Cardiff City, it emerged today.Cardiff’s new £15million signing was due to join his teammates in South Wales on Tuesday morning for training but never arrived as the light aircraft he was travelling on from Nantes on Monday night disappeared from radar close to Guernsey.

I have to show the respect for the boys and I’ve said a lot of times how much I like the squad and now we have to use it.“That’s the line-up for today because we think the game will be really intense and for this you need kind of fresh legs and we try to bring them in.” 1 Everton boss Marco Silva, meanwhile, stuck with the Everton side which started in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Leicester City.The Reds are hoping to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League, having seen Man City move back to within eight points of the Reds with a defeat of Burnley on Tuesday.
