Jennifer Meredith hired as Syracuse assistant tennis coach

first_img Published on August 28, 2019 at 11:26 am Contact Andrew: [email protected] | @CraneAndrew Facebook Twitter Google+ Less than a week after a coaching vacancy opened up on the Syracuse tennis staff, Jennifer Meredith has been hired as an assistant coach, according to an SU Athletics press release Tuesday night. Former associate head coach Shelley George announced her retirement last Thursday after 12 seasons on staff.“Syracuse has such a rich tradition both academically and athletically,” Meredith said in the press release, “and it’s a privilege to be joining the Syracuse family.”Meredith spent the past three years as an assistant coach at Missouri and helped the Tigers gradually increase their win total in each of those three years from 11 to 14. In 2016, she oversaw Amina Ismail and Bea Machado Santos’ rise to No. 10 in the Oracle/ITA doubles rankings and the first NCAA tournament doubles berth for the Tigers since 2003.Prior to her stint in Columbia, Meredith spent two seasons on Connnecticut’s staff and was a private instructor after concluding her playing career at Tennessee.At SU, Meredith joins a staff looking to fill gaps left by three graduating seniors — Gabriela Knutson, Masha Tritou and Libi Mesh. Head coach Younes Limam has piloted the Orange to three NCAA tournament appearances in four seasons alongside volunteer assistant Len Lopoo and strength and conditioning coach Will Hicks.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAccording to the press release, Meredith also helped draw some of the first international recruits in the UConn’s history. That aligns with Syracuse’s recruiting trend under Limam. The Orange have only one player on their 2019-20 roster from the United States, compared to eight during the 2012-13 season, previous head coach Luke Jensen’s final full season. And the two freshmen listed on SU’s 2019-2020 roster are from Russia and the Netherlands.“(Meredith’s) work ethic, eagerness to grow and achieve, and passion for the sport will be an asset to our program,” Limam said in the press release.

Angels’ Griffin Canning says his elbow feels ‘normal’ after injection

first_img Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Certainly, the jury will be out on him until he is able to pitch in the competition of a game without having an issues.Manager Joe Maddon said he’s eager to have Canning in his rotation.“I’ve been impressed with him from the first time I saw him during the regular camp,” Maddon said. “I don’t see any reason why (he wouldn’t be in the rotation) if he just continues along this path. This guy is a premier pitcher. He’s not just a pitcher. This guy, with good health, he’s going to have a nice major league career.”THE REST OF THE ROTATION….Andrew Heaney, who was scheduled to be Angels starter for the Mar. 26 Opening Day in Houston, will still start on Opening Day in July, Maddon said.After that, the Angels rotation still has at least one significant question mark.Julio Teheran was still not working out with the team on Sunday, the third day of camp, and Maddon said he couldn’t say when Teheran would join the team or whether it would be soon enough to pencil him into the rotation.“That’s going to be based on when he gets here and how much time we have available to us to really get him stretched out properly,” Maddon said. “So I don’t have a specific answer for that. That is still up in the air. Once we get him here I’ll be able to answer that more directly. But for right now I can’t tell you for sure that he’d be able to be available.”Shohei Ohtani, Dylan Bundy and Canning all have been in camp and throwing. Barring injury, those three would join Heaney in the rotation.Beyond that, both Matt Andriese and Felix Peña are in camp and working out as starters, although they could also go to the bullpen. Jaime Barria, Patrick Sandoval and Jose Suarez were also starter candidates in spring training.ALSOAdd Matt Thaiss to the list of players who isn’t yet in camp. Maddon said only that Thaiss’ absence was related to the “protocols.” Players must receive a negative a coronavirus test before beginning workouts. …Related Articles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone center_img Maddon came away impressed after meeting left-hander Reid Detmers on Saturday. Detmers, the Angels’ first-round pick from last month, is working out with the group in Long Beach. “This guy is easy to like,” Maddon said. “You get immediately the sense of a slower heartbeat and the maturity, so he’s going to fit in really well.”…Maddon also said he was impressed with Jo Adell, who is working out in Long Beach. “Adell looked really good,” Maddon said. “Swung the bat well.” Canning felt what he described as tightness following his throwing back in spring training. He underwent a battery of tests that didn’t show any damage that would require surgery, so he tried the PRP and rest.The coronavirus pandemic bought him more time, and he seems to have benefited.He said he will remain cautious, though.“I feel like it will always be around,” he said. “It’s something I’m going to have to work with and manage, but I definitely feel 10 times better than I did in the spring, so I’m very happy about that.”Canning, 24, had his rookie season ended early in August, because he was feeling some elbow issues and the Angels were out of the race. He insisted he was fine throughout the winter and the beginning of the spring, before the issue returned. ANAHEIM >> Griffin Canning is cautiously optimistic that he can be a success story for platelet-rich plasma treatments.Most of the pitchers who have tried similar biologic injections to avoid surgery for injuries have ended up merely postponing the procedures. In recent years with the Angels, Andrew Heaney, Shohei Ohtani and Garrett Richards all had Tommy John surgery after failing to get adequate results from the PRP.Canning, though, has now been throwing to hitters for about two months, including a simulated three innings as recently as Friday. On Sunday morning, he said he’s still feeling good.“It just feels like normal, honestly,” Canning said. “Like my elbow has felt in the past when I hadn’t have any issues with it. That’s probably the best way to explain it.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
