Harvard’s Tom Lucey receives award for work with children, families

Tennis starts title defense

first_imgDuring the USC men’s tennis team’s ring ceremony this past Saturday, the 2009 National Champions were recognized for their accomplishments.Now the team finds itself back at the starting line of a long journey that ended in a national championship last year. The only difference? This year they’re starting out on top.To recap last season’s run to the title: The team defeated Pac-10 foe Stanford, along with Texas, No. 1-seeded Virginia and Ohio State. The national title was the program’s 17th and coach Peter Smith’s first.While the fall competition for the men’s tennis team will primarily be individual tournaments, the results will have an effect on team rankings entering the spring. The fall competition is also an opportunity for the Trojans to improve their individual rankings in both singles and doubles play.“It is important to start the [spring] season with a good ranking,” senior Robert Farah said.“Absolutely,” sophomore Steve Johnson agreed.Already, the team boasts four singles players ranked by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, as well as three ranked doubles teams. No. 3 Farah, No. 18 Johnson, No. 49 junior Jaak Poldma and No. 99 sophomore Matt Kecki all sit among the rankings. Farah and Johnson return as No. 3-ranked doubles partners while Kecki and Poldma come into the rankings at No. 35.Last season Farah and Johnson played primarily at the number one position and Kecki and Poldma held things down on the third court. That left the second position to sophomore Daniel Nguyen and then-senior Abdullah Magdas. Magdas has since run out of eligibility, but freshman JT Sundling looks to fill his position. Sundling and Nguyen have quite a bit of experience playing together, including a stint at the US Open earlier this month, so the transition is likely to be a smooth one.“We won Kalamazoo [this summer] and took a set off of a professional team,” Nguyen said of his and Sundling’s success together.Magdas was the only senior last season so the Trojans should return almost their full lineup along with the additions of freshmen Sundling and Joel Giger. Magdas played a key role in the Trojans’ run to a national championship last season, but these fresh faces provide fresh talent.“We’re just as good as last year,” Nguyen said. “Maybe even better.”An experienced team should serve the Trojans well and it’s a far cry from the situation they found themselves in just one year ago. Of the 10 players on the roster entering the 2008 preseason, five were freshmen. A young program, however, did not stop them from enjoying success, as evidenced by the 2009 title.Coming up for the Trojans is the All-American Qualifying tournament in Tulsa, Okla. The tournament serves as a chance for ranked players to improve their standing and unranked players, like Nguyen and senior Jason McNaughton, to break into the rankings.“I’m pretty pumped,” Nguyen said. “I want to do well and get a ranking.”“I want to be a great preseason player,” McNaughton added.In all, it looks like the Trojans will come back this season just as much of a force and threat, if not more so, than last season with a year of added experience and a national championship under their belts.Some players feel the national championship takes the pressure away, while others feel the opposite.“The monkey’s off the back,” Johnson said. “We won a title.”“We have a target on our back now, but I’m looking forward to the competition,” Nguyen said.Either way, the Trojans are back and ready for action, and as Smith called them at the conclusion of last season, they are “absolutely the team to beat.”last_img read more

Barkley is ready to move on

first_imgIt was “Competition Tuesday” at Howard Jones Field, and the offense and defense were entangled in a fierce battle at the end-of-practice scrimmage.The end result was a 8-7 victory for the offense — by all accounts a much closer score than the 47-20 loss the Trojans suffered at the hands of the Oregon Ducks on Saturday.Lessons to learn · Pete Carroll said freshman quarterback Matt Barkley and other young USC players will learn from the trying season. – Dieuwertje Kast | Daily TrojanDon’t remind them.“I hate losing,” freshman quarterback Matt Barkley said. “It’s really terrible to see our team go down and it kills me inside. You try your best not to show it, but from this point on we’ve moved on.”Barkley has, at a minimum, two years left as a Trojan. USC coach Pete Carroll said after practice Tuesday that 2009 will surely serve as a learning experience for Barkley and Co.“The experience of this season will pay off for a number of years for our guys,” Carroll said. “The challenges we’ve had, the games that we’ve played, the settings that we’ve been in — we’ll always be able to utilize that as long as these guys are here.”uOn the injury front, redshirt junior running back Allen Bradford sat out of practice with a sore knee Tuesday, leaving Howard Jones Field early.“His knee was sore coming out of the weekend,” Carroll said. “He got banged on it, and it’s still too sore to push it right now. He had X-rays over the weekend, but it’s still very sore.”Junior running back Joe McKnight also stayed on the sidelines with a sore hamstring, which Carroll described as minor.“We’re just making sure we don’t extend it and allow it to nag all through the week, so we’ve got to rest him for a couple days here,” he said.If either of the two can’t suit up against Arizona State, it’s likely that redshirt junior running back C.J. Gable will pick up the carries.Gable registered more than 100 carries during both his freshman and sophomore seasons, but has carried the ball only 16 times this season.“C.J.’s ready to go,” Carroll said. “He’s been waiting, and he’s done a great job of being patient about it.“He can answer that call. He’s done it for years, and I know he can now.”Middle linebacker redshirt sophomore Chris Galippo returned to practice Tuesday showing no ill effects from a neck injury.Carroll said Galippo was 100 percent recovered.uArizona State freshman linebacker Vontaze Burfict was a USC verbal commit for much of the recruiting process before switching to the Sun Devils on Signing Day amid concerns he wouldn’t qualify academically at USC.Now, Burfict is the starter at middle linebacker for Arizona State and the centerpiece of a young defense.“He’s a young guy that’s really trying to make an impression,” Carroll said. “He’s really a physical player, and he runs sideline to sideline. He’s a good-looking prospect, fantastic-looking player, and he’s only gonna get better as he grows within their system.”Burfict was the highest-ranked high school prospect to ever sign a letter of intent with Arizona State.“He’s a beast and he plays hard,” Barkley said. “He doesn’t stop. I’m excited to see him play. From the tape we watched, he plays like a crazy man.”last_img read more
