Women’s basketball: CSUN can’t match up with Fullerton in loss

first_imgIt’s very hard to beat the same team three times in the same season. But have you ever noticed that for every good cliche, there is an equal and opposite cliche? ANAHEIM – It sounded good. Like it always does. Sometimes it even works out the way the cliche foretells. In other words: There are some teams that you just don’t match-up well against. In this case – with the Cal State Northridge women’s basketball team trying to defeat Cal State Fullerton for the first time in three tries this year- the opposite cliche meant the end of the Matadors’ season. Fullerton beat Northridge 75-65 Thursday afternoon in the quarterfinals of the Big West Conference tournament in front of 858 at the Anaheim Convention Center. The game played out much the same way the previous two losses to the Titans have, with Fullerton using its superior size and speed to thwart Northridge’s balanced half-court sets. “Yeah, going in I knew that it was an issue we’d struggled with, matching up with them,” Northridge coach Staci Schulz said. “I would’ve liked to use our size more, but we had to have the players in who could get it done defensively. center_img “So unfortunately, this was a rough closing to what was supposed to be pretty good year and for what was a special senior class. I have to thank them for bringing our program to a higher expectation level.” Northridge (13-16) graduates seven seniors, including four of the five starters in Thursday’s game. Fifth-year senior Ofa Tulikihihifo graduates as just the third player in conference history to be honored as a first-team all-conference pick in all four of her seasons. Thursday, Tulikihihifo and senior LaJoyce King led the way. Tulikihihifo finished with 16points and 12 rebounds. King had 12 points and 16rebounds.. “We talked about it after the game, how we, this senior class, really set the bar higher for the program,” Tulikihihifo said. “Coming in, my first year, we had just three wins. We struggled and it was always about rebuilding.” Northridge was just 3-24 in Tulikihihifo’s first year and 6-20 her second. The Matadors advanced to the semifinals of the conference tournament each of the past two seasons, until Thursday’s quarterfinal exit. ramona.shelburne@dailynews.com (818) 713-3617 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Fort St. John’s first Sexual Health Week #knowyourstatus

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Positive Living North, The Women’s Resource Society and the Healthy FSJ coalition are teaming up with to host the first Sexual Health Week from June 23rd to the 30th, 2019 and HIV testing day on National HIV testing day.Thursday, June 27th, 2019 join at The Healing Place, 10045-100th Avenue from 10 am to 2 pm to be tested for HIV, HCV and Syphilis. The community is welcomed to participate, ask questions and be tested.On the same day, a community BBQ will take place at the green space on 100th Street and 100th Avenue from 11.30am to 1 pm with a community health fair and loads of relevant information.- Advertisement -In attendance for the event will be City Counsellors, the Mayor of the City of Fort St. John and the local Member of the Legislative Assembly, Dan Davies. Breaking down the stigma of testing is the single largest barrier to people knowing their status.Knowing your sexual health status is important to know, and for a community in whole to know how to adequately support and medicate those that are affected. These groups are coming together to share that medicine and supports have come a long way in the last few years and they want to make sure that the community has access to these resources.According to national organizations like the Canadian AIDS Society, Provincial Networks such as the Pacific AIDS Network and regional non-profit agencies like Positive Living North and Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society all work hard to educate communities and support those living with and at risk of HIV.Advertisement Although work has been done, there is still a lack of information and sufficient testing sites within Northern, remote regions as the Options for Sexual Health clinic closed its doors in Fort St. John several years ago which has made easily accessible testing for local residents even more difficult to access. Statistics show, 1 in 5 people in Canada living with HIV are unaware they have it and that they account for 75% of new infections. #knowyourstatus For further information please contact;Advertisement Heather Paddison; 250.793.2254 Amanda Trotter; 250.787.1121To view the FB Event Page; CLICK HERElast_img read more

A predator in our midst?

first_imgIf she exists at all, she would be deep inside the bamboo groves and dense scrub along the San Gabriel River bed, away from human eyes.A mother mountain lion and at least one cub are reportedly roaming the river bed from the Whittier Narrows Nature Center in South El Monte at least as far south as the gate of the Whittier Narrows Dam in Pico Rivera.The cat was first sighted several months ago by motorists, who apparently came across her late one night on a road near the Nature Center, said Mickey Long, natural areas administrator for Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation.Equestrians also report mountain lion tracks and signs of the animal’s kills in the sandy banks and trails of the river bed.“We are undecided yet as to whether we have a mountain lion or not,” Long said. “Large dogs have not been ruled out.”County officials have posted signs in Whittier Narrows warning of possible danger.Long has worked Whittier Narrows since 1971 and has never encountered a mountain lion.“There’s never even been a rumor of a mountain lion track,” he said.Long said the rumored beast could be a bobcat, although there has never been a bobcat sighting in Whittier Narrows that he can remember.Bobcats are much smaller than mountain lions, but larger than domesticated cats. They have short tails, tufted ears and spotted coats. Their diet is mainly smaller animals, such as birds or rabbits.If a mountain lion is roaming the narrows, it would be a surprise to field biologists like Long.Mountain lions typically don’t like to come so close to urban environments, and the game to be had in the river is fairly limited. The place is teeming with rabbits, raccoons, birds and stray dogs, but a mountain lion’s preferred meal is deer. Long said deer are few and far between in the narrows.Equestrienne Pat Cravey is convinced a mountain lion and one cub or more have made the narrows its feeding ground and possibly its home.“We’ve just seen where she’s taken her animals, the bones, we’ve found entrails,” Cravey said.Cravey walks the river bed from the Pico Rivera Sports Arena to the dam twice daily. On her treks she has spotted signs she believes are those of a mountain lion – paw prints, kill sites and feces densely packed with the hair and bone of some unfortunate critters.Recently, Cravey went on a search for the mysterious big cat. On a narrow path of soft sand cutting through the scrub, she stopped to circle a possible paw print.The print fits some of the characteristics of a puma track, its fingertips are rounded and the center of the print resembles a pyramid with the top chopped off.But the area is home to packs of stray dogs – some pretty hefty and as capable of killing a rabbit as any mountain lion. The prints could come from a large dog, Long said.The narrows is packed with predators. As Cravey walked toward the dam, a Red-tail hawk flitted out of a bamboo grove, a coot in its clutches. Signs of life-and-death struggles between creatures of the narrows are visible all along the river bed – from scuff marks in the sands to bleached and forgotten bones.Along the sandy banks of the river, Cravey spotted what could be mountain lion excrement.“That’s probably hers,” she said, taking a closer look.“Nothing but fur and bones,” she said, breaking the dung apart in her fingers. “A high-protein diet. And that’s big. That would probably be her size.”Cravey walked for hours along the sunlight-dappled tracks and trails, the sounds of civilization far away. She’s out there, Cravey believes, and perhaps the cat was watching the whole time.Leaving the river, Cravey came across a fellow equestrienne, Susan MacClean of Hacienda Heights, riding a sleek, auburn appendix quarter horse named Miss Katie. MacClean has traveled the horse trails in Whittier Narrows since 1987, she said.Cravey asked her if she had seen any signs of a mountain lion. MacClean said she hadn’t really looked for any.“Coyotes, yes,” MacClean said. “There’s one out there right now that is the mangiest looking thing.”MacClean said she has noticed a decline in the number of stray dogs roaming the narrows, something she thinks could be caused by a mountain lion, or who knows what.One thing Cravey and Long share, though they have never met, is a desire to help the animal. jason.kosareff@sgvn.com(626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
