Watch The Emotional Tribute To Butch Trucks From Wanee’s Opening NightWatch The Emotional Tribute To Butch Trucks From Wanee’s Opening Night

first_imgLast night, Wanee got the ball rolling for their long-awaited weekend event at The Spirit of Suwannee Music Park with their “Wanee Wednesday” pre-party. After performances by Brothers & Sisters, Matt Reynolds,  New Orleans Suspects, and more, the Freight Train Band took the stage to honor their fallen leader. Cody and Luther Dickinson also helped close out the opening night festivities with an emotional tribute to fallen festival stalwart and Allman Brothers co-founder Butch Trucks.The tragedy that took Trucks from our lives earlier this year can not be erased, but the music and love he made can be honored. Trucks helped keep the beat for one of rock and roll’s most influential bands since its inception, and helped found Wanee. For those reasons and so many more, the family jam brought members of the Trucks clan and many more together with Cody and Luther to send some joyful noise skyward.For years, the Allman Brothers family and fans have converged on The Spirit Of Suwannee Music Park, one of America’s most beloved music venues, for Wanee’s return every April. The unbeatable combination of epic jams and the sea of people gathered together for a weekend of fun under the sun and stars has become a beloved tradition for tens of thousands of music fans. When the fest’s schedule and this special set were announced, it was clear that this tribute would be one of the most important and impressive of the weekend.It’s only fitting that a band so rooted in family be honored in the same fashion. The brothers Dickinson (North Mississippi All-Stars) sharing the stage with Trucks’ son Vaylor and daughter Melody made the show a true family affair. Guitarist and vocalist Heather Gillis showed the audience exactly why Trucks felt so deeply about taking her under his wing, and from there she will soar. Wanee fixture Big Mike and Melody choked back tears as they faced the packed amphitheater full of loving faces smiling back at them.Luckily, our own Rex Thomson was on hand to record the wondrous blending of these two musical dynasties for us all to enjoy. Watch as tears turn to cheers and a father is honored by the children he left behind in the emotional clip below.The Freight Train Band “Hot Lanta>Trouble No More”Setlist: The Freight Train Band | Wanee | Live Oak, FL | 4/19/17Hot LantaTrouble No More – MELODYFreeway JamEvery Day Will Be Like A Holiday – DAMONStatesboro – MELODYDreams – HEATHERUp The Line – DAMONJessicaOut From The Center – VAYLOR / GUITAR MELODYI Feel Ya – DAMON & MELODYCompared to What – DAMONLiz ReedWhipping Post – HEATHERlast_img read more

Monster Weekend for UWF Soccer, Cross Country, and VolleyballMonster Weekend for UWF Soccer, Cross Country, and Volleyball

first_imgMonster Weekend for UWF Soccer, Cross Country, and Volleyball Nov. 1, 2007PENSACOLA, Fla. – The University of West Florida is bracing for a weekend of superb athletic events. The Men’s and Women’s Soccer teams are hosting the Gulf South Conference Championships here in Pensacola, and both teams are the #1 seeds. The Men are ranked 3rd in the nation, while the women are 9th in the nation. Meanwhile, the 25th ranked Volleyball team is hosting West Alabama Friday night for Senior Night, and the team has already set school records for most overall wins and conference wins in a season. Saturday morning, the men’s and women’s Cross Country teams are in Huntsville, Alabama to compete in the NCAA Regional Championships.The Men’s and Women’s soccer programs are looking to become the first school ever to have both teams win back to back Conference championships in the same years. The men could become the first back to back champions since Alabama Huntsville in 1996 and 1997. The women could be back to back champions for the second time in school history, as they repeated in 1998 and 1999. The only other Women’s program with back to back championships is Christian Brothers.Men’s Soccer:The third ranked Argonauts have a nucleus of Seniors that are very focused, and could make this an extremely special post season. UWF takes on Harding in the conference semifinal match at 7:00 pm on Friday evening at Brosnaham Park, and the winner plays in the championship Sunday at 1:30 pm. The Argos have won a team record 16 matches in a row, and have had four different players win the Conference Player of the Week awards. Senior Keith Savage (Gulf Breeze, Fla.) has won the offensive POW award twice, and Jimmy McHenry (Sr. / Tallahassee, Fla.) was also a recipient of the Offensive Player of the Week. Both Nolan Intermoia (Jr. / Pensacola, Fla.) and Goalkeeper Juan Garcia (Jr. / Colombia) have received Defensive POW awards this season.Coach Bill Elliott is proud of the Senior leadership, “A lot of credit goes to the Seniors, they have been fantastic. Anytime you win 16 matches in a row, it is a credit to the team leaders.” Elliott wants to keep his team focused on one match at a time, “We cannot overlook any opponent now, it’s the post-season, and every team here is a very good team and will rise to another level. We must bring emotion and match our opponents’ enthusiasm. The challenge is on the players, they must come ready to play.”The Argos have already beaten the opponents that they are going up against this weekend, but even the #3 Argonauts know that every team here for the post season has a chance to win. Last season, the men made it all the way to the National Semifinals, and Coach Bill Elliott tries not to look ahead, but he also believes that this year’s team may even be better in some ways. “We have a lot of talent, and we had a lot of talent last year, but this year’s team is very balanced. To be successful, you need balance in scoring and balance in defense and hopefully that will pay dividends for us this year.”Senior Jimmy McHenry leads the Argos with 15 goals so far this season (7th best in school history), while Senior Keith Savage has recorded 14 goals (8th best in school history). McHenry also leads the team with nine assists, and has 39 points for the season (8th best in school history). Goalkeeper Juan Garcia has a goals-against-average of 0.73, which is the best in school history, breaking the record he set last year of 0.89. Garcia has great help from his defenders, Okang Nkosi (Sr. / Trinidad), Nolan Intermoia, Mason Hupp (Jr. / Fort Walton Beach, Fla.), Patrick McLean (Sr. / Conyers, Ga.), and Matt Williams (Jr. / Pace, Fla.). As a unit, they lead the conference with only 12 goals allowed. Garcia leads the entire conference in goals against average and save percentage.In the conference as a team, the Argos impressively lead in the following categories; shots, points, goals, goals per game, assists per game, goals allowed, and goals against average. In addition, they are only one shutout behind Christian Brothers and Montevallo. Overall, the men have made nine gulf south conference appearances with a 9-3-1 record in tournament play, and have been in the championship game five times, with four championships, which is the most in GSC history.Women’s Soccer:The ninth ranked Argonauts have displayed incredible defense this season, allowing only one goal in conference play, and have eight straight shutouts, including shutout wins over the last seven conference opponents. Remarkably, they have not been scored on in the last 790 minutes of play. They are about to reset the Conference records for least amount shots attempted on them and goals. The defense has only given up six goals all season, and has 13 shutouts in the 16 matches played this year.It is no mistake that four different Argonauts have received the Conference Defensive Player of the Week. Goalkeeper Courtney Jones has won the award twice, while Linda Ganehed (Fr. / Sweden), Marie Hastings (Sr. / Gainesville, Fla.), and Sheka Codner (Jr. / Dover, Del.) have all won the award once. The Women have also had three different offensive players win the player of the week award. Dernelle Mascall (So. / Trinidad), Brandi Adams (Sr. / Gulf Breeze), and Jodi Galucci (So. / Stuart, Fla.). In all, seven different women have won the conference player of the week awards.Coach Joe Bartlinski is extremely proud of this year’s team, “we are the No-Name team, with nine new starters, and virtually no one picked for pre-season accolades, we have risen up. The kids have responded very well, we lost to the #1 team in the country to start the season, and a hugh credit goes to the players, they took the challenge and went on the road and won two hugh matches (beating Rollins and Florida Southern, with both being shutouts). They have really come together and been very consistent.”Dernelle Mascall has set the Argos single season record for goals scored with 22. That also leads the conference, and is 4th best in the nation. Mascall has recorded three hat tricks this season (3 goals in a game), and she is third in the nation in points per game (3.38). Brandi Adams is currently third in the nation in assists per game (0.81), and Goalkeeper Courtney Jones is 4th in the nation for goals against average (0.39), and her save percentage of .891 is 5th in the nation. Amazingly, the team as a whole leads the conference in points, goals, goals per game, assists, assists per game, goals allowed, goals against average, shutouts, and corner kicks. The defense is lead by Marie Hastings, Linda Ganehed, Sheka Codner, Kaley Morris (So. / Gulf Breeze, Fla.), Anastasia Prescott (So. / Trinidad) and goalkeeper Courtney Jones, and as a unit they lead the entire nation in shutout percentage.Coach Bartlinski definitely stresses defense, “Our philosophy is defense, even the strikers play by that mindset. I am very proud that the kids are #1 in the nation in shutout percentage, and it is a credit to them coming together and being very consistent. We weren’t sure what to expect this year, but we never lowered the bar, and the kids rose to the challenge of the standards we set. This is the 7th straight year in the top ten, and we are pleased with the consistency of our program.” Bartlinski knows that the conference matches are very important. “We can host first round national tournament matches if we win the conference, so that is our focus.”The women are making their 11th appearance in the Gulf South Conference tournament with a record of 14-6, with 4 championships, and all six losses coming in the championship game, which means that every time they have qualified for the tournament they have reached the championship match.Volleyball:The only unbeaten team in the GSC this year, the 10-0 Argonauts have already clinched the #1 seed in the Gulf South Conference Tournament on Nov. 9th in Searcy, Arkansas. The 25th ranked Argos host West Alabama Friday night at 7:00 pm for Senior night. Sarah Harrison (Sinton, Texas), Isabela Gualberto (Belo Horizonte, Brazil), and Danielle Spitzer (Birmingham, Ala.) will be honored for their outstanding UWF careers. The Argos then play their final home match on Saturday at 3:00 pm against Montevallo.Coach Melissa Wolter has her team ready for this weekend. “I think we are excited to finish out our conference schedule at home. It is great for our Seniors to play their final matches on our home court against two very competitive teams this weekend. In fact, there is a very good chance that we will have to turn around and play West Alabama again next weekend in the conference tournament, so our team is ready to play. Our Seniors have had a tremendous impact on this year’s success, and it’s great to honor them.”Each of the three Seniors transferred to UWF to finish their careers as Argos. Sarah Harrison transferred to UWF after two season at UNC-Pembroke. Last year as an argonaut, she appeared in 88 games, and recorded 87 kills, and was third on the team with 78 blocks. This year, she is averaging 1.67 kills per game, and is second on the team in blocks per game at 1.05. She posted 6 kills and 4 blocks in her first West Florida match last season, and had 7 blocks in the upset win over Washburn last year. This year, sarah had 7 kills and 7 blocks in the season opener against Flagler.Danielle Spitzer transferred to UWF after two seasons at Western Carolina. Last year she lead the team with 124 blocks, which was the second highest single season total in Argo history. This year she has 91 blocks so far, which gives her 215 in her career, 4th best all-time at UWF. She also stands as the 3rd best in Argo career history for attack percentage at .234 entering today. Earlier this year, Danielle was the Gulf South conference Offensive Player of the week for September 25th, in which she had 37 kills in two matches, and hit an impressive .533 against West Georgia to break the wolves 17 game win streak.Isabela Gualberto transferred to UWF from Texas Wesleyan University. She has had an impressive season this year, as she leads the team with 390 kills, and is second on the team with 34 service aces. If the season were to end today, Isabela would have the 5th best all-time single season mark of kills, and her single season attack percentage of .303 would be the third best all-time. Gualberto was the GSC Offensive Player of the Week for the week of October 2nd, in which she had 41 kills for the week, including 20 kills against North Alabama. She also was the tournament MVP for the Comfort Inn-vitational Tournament this season leading her team to four wins in the tournament with a tournament high of 59 kills.Cross Country:Both the men and women are participating in the 2007 NCAA Division II South Region Cross Country Championships on Saturday at Sharon Johnston Park in New Market, Ala.The races begin at 9 a.m. with the women’s 6K, followed by the men’s 10K championship at 10 a.m. The UWF men’s team enters the event as the 7th ranked team in the region, while the Argonaut women are ranked 5th in the region.The top three teams in each race, as well as the top two individuals from each race, not a part of a qualifying team, will advance to the Division II National Championships on November 17th in Joplin, Mo. Last year, Michael Padilla represented UWF at the National Championships. This season, both the men’s and women’s programs finished a strong 3rd place in the Gulf South Conference championships, and are ready to run for more at the Regional meet.The Argos placed four runners on the All-Conference team, with Senior Diana Sitar (Las Vegas, Nev.) making 1st team All-Conference, while Brian Gowin (Sr. / Pensacola, Fla.), Nicholas Maedel (Fr. / Orange Park, Fla.), and Margaret Harter (Jr. / Milton, Fla.) each made the 2nd team All-Conference. The regional meet is a longer distance than the 5k and 8k distances that the conference meet was scheduled for. The men will run a 10k (6.2 miles) and the women run a 6k (3.7 miles). Coach Dobson is confident in his team, “We have to run smart with the longer distance, but three of our guys and three of our girls have run the course before and that should help us be prepared for the hilly course.”The girls are ranked 5th currently in the region, and Coach Dobson feels like a couple teams right in front of them are within reach. “The third place finish at conference has really given our girls a lot of confidence that they can run with anyone, and they have a chance to finish higher in the regional meet than they have in several years. The girls are the healthiest they have been all season and we are looking to do well.”The men are ranked 7th in the region; however the 4th thru the 7th place teams in the rankings are virtually even on paper. Coach Dobson likes his teams’ chances, “The guys are in the best shape they have been in all year, we will have Brian (Gowin) and Jordan (Theuerkauf) at full strength, and the freshmen have been coming along great. If the third ranked team has a slightly off day, and one of the next four teams, which could be us, runs well, that could easily be the difference in advancing. Overall, we are well rested and ready to do well.”The outstanding Fall Sports programs representing West Florida are not done yet, so stay tuned for post-season results.

Syracuse dispatches Virginia Tech, 3-0, behind all-around showing from senior Amber WitherspoonSyracuse dispatches Virginia Tech, 3-0, behind all-around showing from senior Amber Witherspoon

first_img Published on October 27, 2017 at 11:03 pm Contact David: [email protected] Amber Witherspoon and Christina Oyawale stood patiently by the net as the ball was served over to Virginia Tech’s side of the court. The pair of 6-foot-4 blockers stayed light on their feet with their hands ready to shoot up at any second.After VT controlled the service reception and set the ball, Marisa Cerchio rose from the ground and smacked it back toward Witherspoon and Oyawale, who met it with vigor. The blockers simultaneously sprung off the ground and deflected the ball straight back into Hokie territory, giving the Orange the point. Witherspoon and Oyawale shouted and aggressively high-fived each other.“It’s not about scoring for me, it’s about the environment,” Witherspoon said. “I love playing with this team.”Witherspoon’s all-around performance of seven kills, six blocks and a .429 hitting percentage helped Syracuse (15-8, 7-3 Atlantic Coast) dispatch Virginia Tech (8-13, 2-8 Atlantic Coast), 3-0, Friday night at the at the Women’s Building, 25-19, 25-13, 25-18.Witherspoon’s first contributions came late in the first set after the Orange’s offense had recovered from a stagnant opening. With SU up 22-18, the senior blocked a Virginia Tech attack attempt and added a kill to put her team within one point of capturing the opening set. With the set point on the line, both teams struggled to control the ball and hit it cleanly, but then a diving Witherspoon popped the ball high in the air, allowing Dana Valelly to set up Mariia Levanova for the set-winning kill.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We have confidence (on the block),” Santita Ebangwese said of Witherspoon’s return to the front line.After four games without an appearance, Witherspoon has re-found her place in Syracuse’s last three games, recording 20 kills and 16 blocks. The senior blocker hasn’t consistently played in a run of games all season, as head coach Leonid Yelin has opted for other hitters and blocker such as Ebangwese, Ella Saada, and Anastasiya Gorelina.“Tonight our setters recognized (Virginia Tech) was having a hard time stopping (Amber),” Yelin said. “They were giving her high enough balls, and she took full advantage of her size and jumping ability.”The second set required Syracuse to come back after it fell behind, 6-4, early. Three Witherspoon kills propelled a 13-3 run by the home team, and the Orange maintained its lead for the rest of the set. The third set began with another Witherspoon block, her sixth of the match, which sparked an 8-2 start from the Orange. SU’s front line of Witherspoon, Oyawale, and Ebangwese did not allow the Hokies to gain offensive consistency, and the hosts took the final set, 25-18.“This time of the season almost feels like the playoffs,” Yelin said. “You win and you move on.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
