The Latest: NHL, union reach tentative return-to-play deal

first_imgFrances Tiafoe will not play in the World TeamTennis season after testing positive for the coronavirus.The American was playing in a weekend tournament in Atlanta and was tested after feeling symptoms during his match on Friday. He withdrew from the event the following day and said he was following the recommended quarantine protocol.He was set to play for the Washington Kastles during the World TeamTennis season, set for July 12 to Aug. 2. It’s being played entirely at The Greenbrier in West Virginia because of the pandemic, instead of around the country as usual.Under league rules, a player had to test negative before being allowed to travel to the resort. The league announced Monday that because Tiafoe’s positive test was within the advance travel window, he was ineligible to compete this season.Tiafoe, a quarterfinalist at the 2019 Australian Open, will not be paid for this season. ___The Washington Nationals have canceled Monday morning’s team workout because of COVID-19 testing delays.Players and staff were tested Friday, and general manager Mike Rizzo says the team still hasn’t received its results. Rizzo said it’s not safe to continue holding camp without accurate and timely testing and that the workout was canceled to prevent putting players and staff at risk.Rizzo says: Major League Baseball “needs to work quickly to resolve issues with their process and their lab. Otherwise, summer camp and the 2020 season are at risk.”___ The Latest: NHL, union reach tentative return-to-play deal July 6, 2020 Two players on the Indiana Fever were among the seven positive tests for the coronavirus across the WNBA, the team announced.The league and teams didn’t reveal who the players were. All 137 WNBA players were tested over the past week as the teams prepared to head to Florida on Monday for the upcoming season, which will be played at IMG Academy.The Fever will delay their travel by at least five days to self-quarantine in case any of them came into close contact with the infected players.The WNBA hopes to start training camp later this week, with the regular season set to begin around July 24.___ Count the Tennessee Titans among the NFL teams offering season-ticket holders the option of opting out of this season and putting that money toward 2021 or getting a refund.The Titans sent a letter to their season-ticket holders Monday. The team also posted a notice on its website.Tennessee told season-ticket holders the team suspended any payment plans July 1 for this season.Team officials will be working with state and local governments on how many fans will be allowed to attend games at Nissan Stadium, which seats approximately 69,143.But the Titans say the coronavirus pandemic makes it “increasingly likely” that NFL teams will be playing in front of fewer fans this season. After being one of the local players that had been able to work out at the Rangers’ new ballpark the past several weeks, Gallo has missed the first four days of summer camp at Globe Life Field, including Monday. Daniels had said Sunday that Gallo was still in intake testing.Gallo has 110 career homers in his 418 big league games. After consecutive 40-homer seasons, he had 22 homers in 70 games last season and was an All-Star before right wrist surgery. He homered in the All-Star game.___England rugby will lay off 139 positions because it expects to lose 107 million pounds ($134 million) in revenue in the short term.The Rugby Football Union will begin consulting with staff before announcing the redundancies at the end of August, chief executive Bill Sweeney said on Monday. “To ensure we have a sustainable RFU we have announced to colleagues that it is proposed that the total number of roles across the organisation will reduce by 139,” he wrote on the union website.“We have already made some significant cost savings. We furloughed 60% of our organisation; implemented a three-month pay reduction which has been extended for some; introduced pension pauses; and refined business planning and introduced stadium and office running efficiencies to reduce costs.“Unfortunately, this is not enough to run a sustainable operation and safeguard our future.”Sweeney predicts it will take five years for the RFU to recover, and the union will lose 20% of its normal revenue over that period.___ Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditThe Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:___The National Hockey League and NHL Players’ Association have reached a tentative agreement to return to play this season and extend the collective bargaining agreement. ___Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell says shortstop Luis Urias and pitcher Angel Perdomo tested positive for COVID-19 before the intake process.Counsell says both players are asymptomatic.This marks the second setback for Urias since the Brewers acquired him from San Diego in November. Urias, who is expected to compete with incumbent Orlando Arcia for the starting shortstop job, underwent surgery in January to repair a broken bone in his left hand.Major League Baseball and the players’ association announced Friday that 31 players and seven staff members tested positive for COVID-19 during intake for the resumption of training, a rate of 1.2%. Teams resumed workouts Friday for the first time since the coronavirus interrupted spring training on March 12, two weeks before the season was to start. Dodgers pitcher David Price, Washington infielder Ryan Zimmerman and Colorado outfielder Ian Desmond are among the other players who have opted out.Following nine seasons with Baltimore, Markakis was entering his sixth season with Atlanta. He was competing for a spot in a crowded Braves outfield following the offseason signing of Marcel Ozuna.Manager Brian Snitker plans to play Ozuna and Ronald Acuña Jr. every game, though Ozuna could be the designated hitter. Markakis, Ender Inciarte, Adam Duvall and others were competing other spots and were joined by rookies Cristian Pache and Drew Waters.Markakis hit .285 with nine homers and 62 RBIs in 2019, a year after he was an All-Star. He said he doesn’t know how opting out could affect his hopes for playing in 2021.___ The Rams were supposed to open the season against Stony Brook on Aug. 29 and then host Bryant on Sept. 5 before heading to Hawaii.___Texas Rangers slugger Joey Gallo has tested positive for the coronavirus, though the team said the All-Star right fielder is asymptomatic.General manager Jon Daniels said Monday that Gallo is isolated at his apartment in Dallas and not around teammates. Daniels said Gallo told him that he feels as good as he ever has.Gallo initially took a saliva test as part of the team’s intake process June 27, and got a positive result two days later. The 26-year-old Gallo took a nasal swab test on June 30 which came back negative, but then had another saliva test that came back positive Sunday. The four-year extension of the CBA finalized Monday, coupled with the sides’ agreement on protocols for training camps and games, paves the way for hockey to resume this summer. Training camps would open July 13 and games would resume Aug. 1 if approved by the league’s board of governors and players’ executive committee and full membership.___Fordham’s football game against Hawaii on Sept. 12 has been canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.The Rams have now canceled their first three games. A school spokesman said Fordham will announce later this week whether the entire fall season will be canceled or potentially moved to the spring.Fordham is a football-only member of the Patriot League, whose Council of Presidents announced last month a guidance plan for fall competition. One of the key provisions of that plan was that “No Patriot League teams will fly to competitions and, with rare exceptions, regular season competition will exclude overnight travel.” ___The National Hockey League says 35 total players have tested positive for the coronavirus over roughly the past month.The league says 23 of 396 players checked for COVID-19 at team facilities have tested positive since voluntary workouts began June 8, a 5% rate. In that same period of time, it is aware of 12 additional positive test results.The NHL and NHL Players’ Association on Sunday night agreed on protocols to start training camps and resume the season. That includes daily testing once games get under way for players, coaches and staff.Resuming is contingent on each side approving an extension of the collective bargaining agreement and the return to play agreement. Associated Press More AP sports: https://apnews.com/apf-sports and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports ______Atlanta Braves outfielder Nick Markakis has opted out of the 2020 season.The 36-year-old Markakis said he was uneasy about playing the season without fans and then was swayed by his telephone conversation with teammate Freddie Freeman, who has tested positive for COVID-19 and has fever and other symptoms.“Just hearing him, the way he sounded on the phone, it was tough,” Markakis said Monday. “It was kind of eye-opening. What everything that’s going on, not just with baseball but all over the world, it makes you open your eyes.”Markakis became the second Braves player to opt out. Over the weekend, pitcher Félix Hernández said he wouldn’t play this year.last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Jensen Lynnes breaks Sailfish record in 50 freestyle.By Bliss Baird, Wellington swim team correspondent — Records are a bit like time capsules. They wait, buried somewhere deep in computer systems or languishing in files until, suddenly, one is broken. Then, the entire list is catapulted into the light and poured over meticulously by wide-eyed, aspiring young athletes.The names represent swimmers who set goals and attended practices and raced hard and did not give up and, finally, left their mark on their team. The list with its patchwork of names and dates testifies that any young swimmer can follow in their footsteps or – should I say – can surpass their splash.Jensen Lynnes, daughter of Chad and Jenoa Lynnes of Wellington, went into the Winfield meet last Tuesday with her sights set on the Wellington swim team record books. By the end, she had added her own page. Despite being the only ten and under swimmer in a heat of eleven and twelve year-olds, Lynnes entered the 50 Free with the top seed and won handily.Better yet, she shaved over a second off her time. Best of all, Lynnes seized the team record for the 9-10 girls age-group, previously set by Savanna Bonham in July of 2009. Lynnes already holds four long course and five short course team records, and she is not the only current swim team member to have earned a spot in the record books. Swimmers Marisa Black and Chance Hamel, Coaches Lyndsie Oathout and Devin McCue, and yours truly hold records.Achieving a team record rarely happens all at once. Many Wellington swimmers took steps towards this goal through personal records, the fancy title for best times. Eliesse McComb cut the most time in a single race: 1 minute 22 seconds on her 100 Free. Despite losing her goggles, Emberly Gonzalez cut 1 minute 5 seconds in an electrifying 100 Free. While an improvement of that magnitude is remarkable at any age, it is extremely rare for an older swimmer. Gonzalez did not stop there, though, cutting just under twenty seconds on her 200 IM for the greatest sum of the night. Travis Cody, Rogan Wetta, Ashlyn Sowersby, Derick Kotchavar, Makenna Wylie, Mya Sowersby, Alec Gonzalez, Colin Green, Aidan Young, and Averie Burns also cut ten or more seconds from one of their races. Cody even achieved the double-digit distinction in all his individual events!Tuesday’s meet was notable for another reason. Winfield is a long course pool, the first Wellington has encountered this season. The 50 meter design (long course meter or LCM) is preferred by USA Swimming for the summer season and required for most elite meets (including the Olympics), but it is not always swimmers’ favorite. Wellington’s home pool is 25 meters (short course meters or SCM), which looks far less intimidating and allows twice as many turns. Because it is very difficult to train for long course meets in a short course pool, racing long course is a challenging transition no matter a swimmer’s ability or experience. However, adjusting is crucial to end-of-season success since League Finals, Districts, and Championships are all swam on 50 m pools.Previous District qualifiers Chance Hamel, Jensen Lynnes, and Jordan Thompson took advantage of the opportunity to dramatically improve their seeds by achieving District’s LCM time standard. Missouri Valley has created different time standards for long course and short course pools and gives preference to long course qualifiers.For example, if Swimmer A secures an LCM qualifying time and Swimmer B gains an SCM qualifying time, Swimmer A will be placed in a faster heat than Swimmer B at Districts even if A barely snuck in by 0.01 seconds and B crushed the time standard by twenty. Lynnes’ record-breaking 50 Free also earned her another event at Missouri Valley Championships.This week’s top finishers were:Seth Brown (Second – 13-14 Boys 200 Free)Travis Cody (First – 9-10 Boys 50 Fly)Rose Dickinson (Second – 13-14 Girls 200 Free; Third – 50 Free)Kage Farley (Third – 9-10 Boys 50 Free)Alec Gonzalez (Third – 9-10 Boys 50 Back)Emberly Gonzalez (Second – 13-14 Girls 50 Free; Second – 200 IM)Cat Green (Second – 15-18 Girls 200 Free)Colin Green (First – 11-12 Boys 50 Breast; Second – 100 Free)Chance Hamel (First – 13-14 Boys 50 Free; Second – 100 Breast; Second – 200 IM)Derick Kotchavar (Second – 13-14 Boys 100 Free; Third – 50 Free; Third – 100 Back)Dakota Lynnes (Third – 13-14 Boys 100 Free; Third – 200 IM)Jensen Lynnes (First – 9-10 Girls 50 Free; First – 50 Back; First 200 IM)Quinn McCue (First – 13-14 Boys 400 Free; Second – 50 Free; Second – 100 Fly)Ashlyn Sowersby (Third – 9-10 Girls 50 Back; Third – 50 Breast)Jordan Thompson (Third – 15-18 Girls 50 Free; Third – 100 Back; Third – 100 Free)Alexis Tracy (Third – 13-14 Girls 100 Breast)Teylin Wartick (Third – 9-10 Girls 100 Free)Maddox Wylie (Second – 9-10 Boys 50 Breast)Aidan Young (First – 11-12 Boys 200 IM; Second – 50 Free)Aurora Young (Second – 9-10 Girls 100 Free)Terrell Zani (Third – 15-18 Boys 50 Free)Averie Burns, Ashlyn Sowersby, Aurora Young, and Jensen Lynnes (First – 9-10 Girls 200 Free Relay)Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

Reynolds names new director for Department of Human Services

first_imgDES MOINES — Governor Kim Reynolds has announced that she’s appointing the deputy executive commissioner of the Texas Health and Human Services Commission to be the next director of the Iowa Department of Human Services.Kelly Garcia in her current role oversees the Health, Developmental and Independence Services department in Texas, which spans more than 40 client service programs and support functions with more than 700 employees and a $1.4 billion budget. The governor’s office says Garcia served in a number of other senior level human services roles, including deputy chief for the Office of Programs and Services, which includes oversight of Medicaid, eligibility operations, behavioral and mental health. Garcia replaces Jerry Foxhoven, who claims he was fired by the governor in June after questioning whether it was legal for the DHS to pay the salary of a governor’s staffer who had moved from the agency to the governor’s office. Reynolds has said Foxhoven never raised such concerns and never asked the staff for a legal opinion. Garcia’s appointment is subject to confirmation by the Iowa Senate.last_img read more
