USC faces South Florida for first time since 1979

first_imgUSC women’s tennis coach Richard Gallien has been coaching tennis for more than 25 years.He’s seen hundreds of players improve, mature and graduate.Quite a few of his players have gone on to become head coaches themselves. But according to Gallien, he has never coached against one of his former players — until today.The No. 17 USC women’s tennis team takes on No. 27 South Florida today at 1:30 p.m. at Marks Tennis Stadium.The Bulls are coached by Agustin Moreno, who Gallien coached at Pepperdine in 1986.“We talk all the time,” Gallien said of Moreno. “He’s a good friend of mine.”Gallien said despite the friendship, both coaches have been keeping it serious.“We’re both a little too tight for [smack talk],” Gallien said.Adding to the seriousness is the cramped schedule of both teams.South Florida is coming off a 5-2 loss at No. 2 Florida last Tuesday and will face San Diego on Sunday.The Women of Troy swept San Diego State last Tuesday and will host Texas on Sunday.With both teams playing three games in five days, there is no time to joke around.“It’s a quick turnaround,” said sophomore Danielle Lao. “But we’re rested and ready.”Gallien says he doesn’t expect his team to take the midweek match lightly.“South Florida’s a very good team,” he said. “They’ve been consistently ranked about 25 in the country for the past three years or so. They have two ranked doubles teams, which is really hard to do.  It’ll be a good match.”Although also USC has a pair of ranked doubles teams, it is an area Gallien feels his team needs to improve in.“We didn’t play that well in doubles against San Diego State,” he said. “I think the girls will be extra motivated and excited to make amends.”Despite their lackluster doubles performances, the Women of Troy did win their first match in a week and a half when they went against the Aztecs.“It was a good win,” Gallien said. “It was good to get some momentum, and now we want to keep it going.”Fans can help the team “keep the momentum” by showing up at Marks Stadium tomorrow afternoon.Admission is free and there will be In-N-Out Burgers available for purchase.The Women of Troy are 1-0 all-time against South Florida with their only other meeting coming in 1979 during the AIAW Nationals.last_img read more

South Sound YMCA Teaches Madison Elementary Students To Swim

first_imgSubmitted by the South Sound YMCAWhen the third grade students from Madison got off the bus at the Downtown Y on September 24 it was hard to tell who was more excited; the Madison students or the Y staff greeting them.  The Y planned and prepared for this week for months and we wanted to make sure their experience was awesome and that they learned important swimming skills.  This week of free swim lessons counted towards their PE grade and we wanted all 40 of them to do well!The results more than exceeded our expectations.  With drowning as the second leading cause of death for youth (ages 2 to 14), it i important that kids know what to do in an emergency.  We are thrilled that 92 percent of the participants can now return to the edge of the water or pool if they accidentally fall in and 80 percent now have the skills to swim out of a strong, open-water current.  In addition, 68 percent of the kids increased their swimming ability by one full level and 15 percent increased by two levels!  (A full article about the Y’s swimming program can be found here.)The teachers were thrilled by the impact the lessons were having on the kids back in the classroom.  They told us that the kids were more excited to come to school, their self-confidence increased, and that the lessons gave the students something to look forward to.  On swim days, third grade attendance was near perfect.Changes were also evident to the parents of the kids.  One mom told us that her daughter came home excited and full of pride on the days she went to the Y.  The girl insisted that her mom take her to the Y to show off her newly learned swimming ability!We are grateful to our donors and the Olympia School District for their generosity in helping this program succeed.At the Y, we believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.  That’s why, through the Y, thousands of youth in our community are cultivating the values, skills, and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health, and educational achievement.For more information, visit the Y’s website.
