Greensburg Run

first_imgYou have to give a lot of credit to Coach Meyer and the Greensburg Pirates for their amazing run over the past 4 years.  No matter how this season finally comes out, this 3-A EIAC school has to their name 3 sectional championships,  2 regional championships, and ay least 1 semi-state  and state championship.What makes this even more amazing is that during this same stretch another EIAC school–Batesville–has accounted so far for all but 2 of the Pirate losses during the last 3 years of that run.  For most schools in Indiana, when you are that dominant you at least have things easier in your own area and conference.  However, Greensburg has had the most trouble with Batesville who is in the same conference.Coach Meyer and his staff have put together a team with 5 D-1 starters.  Bryant McIntosh is going to Northwestern to play basketball, Sean Sellers is headed for Ball State to play basketball, Colin Rigney will play tennis at Ball State, and Macy Holdsworth is headed for IU in baseball.  This leaves Ryan Welage, only a junior, who is yet to decide where he will play basketball.  Not many schools with 700 or so students have ever put this type of team on the basketball floor for 3 straight seasons.Time will tell how this group will be remembered when the history books are written.  For now, it has been quite a run!last_img read more

Chelsea fans will only be patient for six months with Lampard — David Luiz

first_img“They [other clubs] are working with the managers more than three or four years and they have amazing squads. On the pitch it is up to us to have to show our jobs.”He added: “I think we just lost a big, big name, a legend of the club in Eden Hazard, but we have many players who can do the job.”The 41-year-old boss is relatively inexperienced in management, having spent just one year at Derby County, his first job on the bench. However, having steered The Rams to the Championship playoff final last season, it was decided that the former Chelsea midfielder is ready to take charge of his former side. New Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard has been warned by Blues defender David Luiz that fans will only be patient for six months before they begin to expect success.Chelsea great Lampard has returned to the club during the close season, replacing Maurizio Sarri after the Italian moved to Juventus. Making the transition trickier – in theory – for Lampard and Chelsea is the club’s transfer embargo, meaning trust in their academy products is likely to be necessary, particularly given the sale of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.Watch Premier League beginning August 2019 | Soccer Live Streaming | DAZN CAGiven the circumstances and Lampard’s standing among the fans, David Luiz expects the new coach will have an easier bedding-in period than others.But he also thinks the average Chelsea fan will only bite their lip for half a season if things are not going to plan.”I think everyone understands the moment and everyone understands to be patient, but in the end everyone wants to win,” centre-back Luiz said, according to Football London.”They are going to be patient in the first six months and then in the last six months [of the season] they want us to win.”It is going to be like that, we have to think about that and do the best to make them happy.”If you don’t think like that [about winning trophies], then you can’t play for Chelsea. The ambition has to be high. Of course, you have many, many fantastic clubs.last_img read more
