Ohio State mens volleyball coach Pete Hanson still aiming for championships after

Men’s volleyball coach Pete Hanson has more than 600 wins and one national title in his 30 years with the Buckeyes.Credit: Courtesy of OSU AthleticsAs his players shook hands following a sweep of IPFW on Friday, Ohio State men’s volleyball coach Pete Hanson had claimed the 603rd win of his career.Hanson, who has coached the Buckeyes for 30 years, holds a career record of 603-324. Hanson and the No. 11 Buckeyes have passed several milestones this season, including the program’s 1,000th overall win and its 500th victory at St. John Arena. Hanson’s OSU career spans 18 20-plus win seasons, 10 national semifinal appearances, a runner-up finish and one national championship.Before beginning his illustrious coaching career, Hanson played volleyball at the collegiate level at Kellogg Community College in Michigan then spent his last two years at Ball State University, up until 1979. Upon graduation, Hanson took his first position as an assistant coach for Ball State men’s volleyball team.He then spent time as a women’s assistant and head coach with Wyoming before joining the Buckeyes’ men’s program in 1985.“I just felt like it would be a great way to give back and to help continue to grow men’s volleyball, and so it kind of led me here and I have been here for 30 years,” Hanson said.Hanson said he thinks the most passionate aspect of his job is watching young players succeed.“The thing that keeps me coming in every day and keeps me looking forward to next year is to bring in a young man and to convince him that Ohio State would be a great place for him to go to school, to get his education, to play volleyball, and then to help him through that journey,” Hanson said. “At the end of the day when they walk out of here with a degree in hand, and maybe they’ve already got a job lined up, that’s the really cool part. To think that myself, my two coaches and Ohio State had a part in that is a really, really neat feeling.”While the Buckeyes finished last season with a losing record for the first time since 1992, Hanson’s squad has started fresh in 2015 with an 11-3 overall record and a 5-1 mark in conference play.The ultimate goal he sets for his team is the same on the yearly basis: winning the national championship.“I think the long-term goal is to try to do the necessary things that are going to allow our team to compete for an elite championship and hopefully a national championship,” Hanson said. “Even though we’ve got this goal and 99.9 percent of the time we’re not going to reach it, it certainly is a goal worth having.”Hanson learned what it takes to make a championship run before he even joined the Division I volleyball ranks.“My senior year (at Ball State) we won the MIVA championship and qualified to go to the NCAA national championships,” Hanson said. “Just having successes along the way which is what we’re trying to do here with our guys, I was able to experience that and those are memories that I’ll have for a lifetime.”As he hunts for a second title as a coach, Hanson said he is grateful for his wife and two sons, ages 20 and 18, who have been supportive of his career.“There are times when you miss some of the kids’ activities and you’re not there at all the right times that you’d like to be,” Hanson said. “I think the big thing was that my wife and the two boys understood and they dealt with it as positively as they could.”Off of the court, Hanson enjoys playing golf in addition to spending time on the water.“Here in the past five to seven years, I’ve become really enamored with fly fishing,” Hanson said. “For the last six or seven summers, my wife and I go to Wyoming to visit one of her brothers, and he got me turned onto fly fishing in the backcountry. It is just the most relaxing and just a time that I can’t put a price on.”Hanson will have to put his next fishing trip on hold as the Buckeyes get set to take on Grand Canyon on Saturday and Sunday in Phoenix. read more

Gattuso Suso deserves a contract renewal at AC Milan

first_imgManager Gennaro Gattuso believes that Suso deserves a contract extension at AC Milan based on his contributions to the team.Since arriving from a lacklustre spell at Liverpool in January 2015, Suso has emerged as one of the most exciting midfielders in the Serie A.In light of this, the four-time Spain international had been linked with a return to Liverpool along with a switch to Tottenham in the Premier League last season.Suso is contracted at Milan until June 2022, but has continued to be of great interest to rival clubs with reports stating that he’s got a €40m release clause.And now Gattuso hopes the Rossoneri board will award his star playmaker with a deserved new contract.“My job is to coach, I am not an agent or a sports director. He deserves a contract renewal, but it depends on the management,” said Gattuso on Twitter.“There is great respect for Suso and he is contributing a lot to the team.Romelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“He immediately made himself available after coming back from a leg injury [in January].”Suso has managed six goals and eight assists in 26 appearances across all competitions for Milan this season.Gattuso’s side will now turn their attention towards Saturday’s visit to Atalanta in their Serie A match, where they hope to grab victory to hold on to fourth-place in the table.And the Milan coach warned his players that nobody is “untouchable” when it comes to a spot in his starting line-up.“We are doing well and we must keep this up,” said Gattuso.“I don’t like to talk about untouchables, as every player must fight for their place. Important teams are born out of respect, I like the fact that different players are starting to take responsibility both on and off the pitch.The Atalanta and Milan game will begin at 8:30 PM (CET) on Saturday.MILAN, ITALY – FEBRUARY 10: Krzysztof Piatek (2nd L) of AC Milan celebrates his goal with his team-mates during the Serie A match between AC Milan and Cagliari at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on February 10, 2019 in Milan, Italy.

Alaskan Appointed To Top Position At Interior Department

first_imgThe leased lands are not only close to the pipeline, but allow companies to tap into two new prospects, the Nanushuk and Torok formations. Alaska Bureau of Land Management associate state director Ted Murphy pointed out that it is important to note that the further west you travel in the NPR-A the less infrastructure there is to support development. All of the leases sold adjoin current leases. Balash, who served as served as chief of staff to Senator Dan Sullivan and Natural Resources Commissioner under Governor Sean Parnell, had previously fought for an Alaska-led plan to allow modern seismic studies in ANWR. T ConocoPhillips and Anadarko, jointly bid on a total of about 80,000 acres, building upon the new Willow oil discovery made within NPR-A, and announced a year ago. During Balash’s tenure, the state filed a claim requesting the transfer of 20,000 acres in ANWR from the federal government to the state of Alaska. The BLM rejected the claim, and now Balash could have the power to overturn such a decision. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The U.S. Senate confirmed Alaskan Joe Balash to a top position at the Interior Department on Thursday, serving as assistant secretary for land and minerals management under Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. While only seven of the 900 leases offered in the NPR-A were sold, causing strong discussion on the value of opening less accessible ANWR, it’s important to recognize that the short window between the announcement that the properties would be available and the actual lease offered minimal opportunity for planning and resource allocation for the bidders. During Balash’s Senate confirmation hearing, he pledged to work on speeding permits and allowing responsible drilling and mining, and improve recreational access to federal lands.
