Sorin and Walsh Halls experience water outage

first_imgSorin and Walsh Halls experienced a water outage Wednesday and are awaiting testing to ensure the water is drinkable, according to emails sent to the dorm communities.At 1:56 p.m. Wednesday, Sorin residents received an email from their rector, Fr. Bob Loughery, informing them that the water was out in both Sorin and Walsh Halls and that the toilets were not usable. University spokesperson Dennis Brown said water was restored to the buildings Wednesday evening.“Sediment in the water main that serves these residence halls constricted the water flow to both buildings,” he said in an email. “The line has been cleared and was returned to service about 9 p.m. Wednesday. The line has been flushed twice, and water samples have been taken for each building.”The outage was connected to Corby Hall construction, according to the email sent from Loughery to Sorin residents Wednesday.“Water to Sorin and Walsh was diverted to another pipe after the start of construction,” Loughery said in the email. “Though the pipe was able to handle that water usage during the summer, the pipe was not able to support the sudden surge in usage these past couple days.”In an email to Sorin and Walsh residents Wednesday, the Residential Life Team said Campus Utilities staff had been working throughout the day to restore water and would test the water “[o]ut of an abundance of caution.”Bottled water was delivered to the dorms to ensure access to potable water during testing. Badin and St. Edward’s Halls opened their bathrooms to Walsh and Sorin while their showers and toilets were impacted by the water outage.Brown said the University expects to receive the test results Friday afternoon.Tags: Construction, Sorin Hall, Walsh Hall, water outagelast_img read more

2015 UPAC Basketball Games: University of Professional Studies qualifiers from zone one

first_imgThe University of Professional Studies Accra (UPSA) took advantage of a partisan crowd and the tactical ingenuity of coach Emmanuel Essel to qualify from Zone One of the 2015 Universities, Polytechnics and Colleges (UPAC) basketball competition.“I played the whole competition from the bench and didn’t allow my players to do what they wanted on the court. That’s was my secret for winning this competition,” said coach of UPSA, Emmanuel Essel “.Emmanuel Essel, former coach of the University of Ghana basketball team, kept screaming instructions from the bench throughout the competition, in order to keep his team playing according to his strategy.In their first game, UPSA survived a scare from Pentecost University College but rallied to narrowly win by 29-28. The home team: UPSA outplayed an inexperienced Ho Polytechnic team with numerous turn overs in the second game. Ho Polytechnic relied on the individual talents of Sedem Tsetsevi, Cliton and Richardson, instead of playing as a single unit against a tactically well drilled UPSA team.  The last match of the day between UPSA and Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) decided who emerge from Zone One to the national competition. Both teams (UPSA and GIMPA) had won their respective first and second matches before they clashed in the last match.During the final match, the supporters and students of UPSA were on their feats dancing, singing and cheering their team on to successfully complete a ‘host and win’ mission. Every defensive and Offensive play of the UPSA team was cheered as UPSA led by their talisman, Delvin Bayonne out played the star studded GIMPA team by 25-20 points.“We focussed mainly on the defence and team work,” said Delvin Bayonne, who was adjudged the most outstanding player of the competition.Unlike the UPSA team, GIMPA’s star players: Kwame Boamah, Mc-Martey and Jake Morrison failed to deliver the much need points especially from the free throw line when it mattered most.“I don’t know what happened to my team in the final match and their inability to convert free throws, maybe it was the rim or something”, said Clement Adu-Gyamfi , coach of GIMPA.last_img read more
