Hayes provides Orange with all-around play, leadership

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments All it took was a video. One in which Sarah Hayes’ all-around volleyball abilities were so apparent — so evident — that the Syracuse volleyball coaches immediately knew they were interested. And they hadn’t even seen her in person. ‘You could just tell that she had a really good court awareness and was an all-around player,’ Orange assistant coach Carol LaMarche said. ‘I saw the quickness. I gave the video to Jing (Pu), and he saw the same things I did.’ But they both saw the 5-foot-9 Hayes playing defense for the Orange. A switch in positions was in order. Hayes had always been an outside hitter in high school, a level at which her height didn’t inhibit her ability to play offense. But to play in the Big East, her height made the change to defense somewhat inevitable. Four years later, adjustments long out of the way, the senior captain has become a reliable leader for the Orange both on and off the court. Hayes knew she wouldn’t be recruited to play offense at the Division I level. She was all but guaranteed a spot on defense. But the switch was no problem for Hayes. Instead the outside hitter turned defensive specialist has learned to love her position because, well, she doesn’t have much of a choice.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text ‘I love offense,’ Hayes said. ‘But I mean, (defense) is my position on this team, that’s my role. You sort of just have to love it.’ The hard hits to the floor Hayes takes every time she dives to make a dig never show up in the box score. Neither does her job of having to defend against the smashing hits opposing hitters — who can be five inches taller than her — sent in her direction. Defense is a thankless job, so for Hayes, it’s a good thing she’s able to love it. But like her all-around volleyball abilities, her leadership abilities are just as strong and just as important. That’s why her teammates named her captain at the start of the year. Last season, her ability to become a vocal on-court leader of the Orange started to show itself, LaMarche said. ‘I guess that has to do with some of her confidence and her feeling that this is her team,’ LaMarche said. ‘It’s great because she’ll be the one to speak up in practice or in games and kind of get people going if it’s getting kind of sluggish.’ But there’s nothing sluggish about Hayes’ play on the court. Her quickness gives SU’s coaches the opportunity to have two players capable of playing libero — Hayes and junior Ashley Williams. It’s not a luxury every coach has, but Hayes’ quick reactions to opposing offenses allow Pu and LaMarche to have that choice. Those quick reactions make it much more difficult for other teams to find the holes in Syracuse’s defense. If they hit in Hayes’s direction, there’s a good chance the Orange will be able to return it back over the net. As Syracuse heads into the final stretch of its season, the final push to the playoffs, Hayes will be depended on to continue giving the Orange offensive opportunities. With SU on the bubble for a Big East tournament berth, this is the time that Hayes’ quick reactions are needed most. Syracuse will need every opportunity it can get if it wants to find itself with a spot in the conference playoffs, and it starts with the leader of its counterattack. ‘If something’s coming at her face, she can put her hands up and block it and actually have it be a ball that can be set,’ LaMarche said. ‘She has a quick reaction time.’ [email protected]center_img Published on November 1, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @chris_isemanlast_img read more

Rs 106 crore refunded to Sahara investors Sebi

first_imgNew Delhi: More than six years after initiating a Supreme Court-monitored recovery and refund process for an estimated Rs 24,000 crore collected by Sahara group from nearly three crore investors, regulator Sebi has received less than 20,000 claims while two-third of them have been refunded a total amount of Rs 106.10 crore. Sahara group said this only validates its long-maintained stand that more than 95 per cent investors were already repaid directly by it and the money deposited by it with Sebi for refunds amounted to ‘double payment’. The group said the ‘idle’ money lying with Sebi should be returned to it so that it can use the same for business expansion and for creating jobs. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe amount refunded so far by Sebi includes Rs 56.86 crore of principal and Rs 49.24 crore paid as interest for 13,543 refund claims made by bondholders of two Sahara group firms, as per the latest update from the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi). The refund has been made from a special account created by Sebi, to which Sahara was asked to deposit the money even as the group has maintained that it had directly refunded more than 95 per cent of investors. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostSebi said an aggregate amount of Rs 15,438 crore has been recovered so far from Sahara through various direction of the Supreme Court and the attachment orders issued by the regulator in 2013. The regulator said Rs 20,173 crore (the recovered amount along with the interest earned on them after providing for refunds made to the investors) was deposited in nationalised banks as on March 31, 2019 as per the Supreme Court order. Giving update in its latest annual report, Sebi said it had received 19,547 applications involving 53,233 accounts as on March 31, 2019, and made refunds with respect to 13,543 applications involving 38,143 accounts for an aggregate amount of Rs 106.10 crore. While more than 4,000 cases (involving claims totalling Rs 17.3 crore) were pending at Sebi, 254 cases were pending with Sahara (for Rs 71.6 lakh) and over 1,000 cases were pending at the end of investors (over Rs 3.84 crore). A total of 131 applications have been declared as ‘disputed cases’ and involve a total amount of less than Rs 50 lakh, while 542 applications seeking refund of over Rs 1.57 crore have been ‘closed’ after investors failed to respond. Sebi had ordered Sahara India Real Estate Corporation Ltd (SIRECL) and Sahara Housing Investment Corporation Ltd (SHICL) in 2011 to refund the money raised from investors through certain bonds known as Optionally Fully Convertible Bonds (OFCDs). After a long process of appeals and cross-appeals, the Supreme Court on August 31, 2012 upheld Sebi’s directions asking the two firms to refund the money collected from investors with 15 per cent interest. Replying to PTI queries, Sahara’s lawyer Gautam Awasthi said Sebi’s annual report “validates our long maintained plea that Sahara has already repaid more than 95 per cent of around 3 Crore OFCD investors of its two companies”. He said it was a case of “double payment” as Sahara first made the repayment to investors and then an equivalent amount was deposited with Sebi. “We have been requesting Sebi to initiate on-ground verification of investors as per the Supreme Court order of 2012, which has not commenced till yet. If verification is done by Sebi, it will come out that most of the investors has already been paid and all this money will come back to Sahara,” Awasthi said. He claimed that a huge amount deposited by Sahara was lying unutilised and idle in banks, which was “not only hurting the interest of Sahara as a business organisation, but also impeding the economic growth of our country especially in these testing times of economic slowdown and global slump”. The group said that as the country’s second largest employer after Indian Railways, with 14 lakh workers, has always built it businesses by harnessing human capital spread across India and by giving employment at their doorstep. It further said the group had to withdraw its expansion plans that required more than 4 lakh employees due to these roadblocks, but once the deposited money comes back to it, the group would re-initiate the business expansion aimed at providing livelihood to lakhs in the country. Awasthi said Sahara has been claiming from the beginning that it has repaid most of the liability and had it not been true there would have been a huge chaos across the country due to such a large number of investors. “On the contrary, there is not a single FIR on this,” he said. The lawyer also claimed that Sebi has refused to accept all original documents pertaining to the investors, their investment and the repayments made by Sahara and a large percentage of the documents are still lying in the group’s godown. In its annual report, Sebi said it has been acting in accordance with the directions of the Supreme Court and its actions are overseen by Justice (retd) B N Agrawal. The regulator has filed 20 status reports before the apex court which have also been furnished to Sahara group. On Sahara group’s luxury resort project, Aamby Valley City, which was earlier proposed to be sold to recover the money, Sebi said the apex court has noted it was not in a position to be sold due to lack of bidders. Sebi said it issued multiple advertisements after the apex court in May 2013 asked it to make refunds to all genuine investors who had lodged their claims with it. The final round of advertisement was issued on March 26, 2018, giving July 2, 2018 as the last date, followed by another reminder on June 19, 2018 to inform the bondholders that it was their last and final opportunity and no further refund claims would be entertained.last_img read more
