Baltimore Ravens practice at M&T Bank Stadium The Baltimore Ravens brought training camp to M&T Bank Stadium to give the fans an opportunity to see the team and the stadium for free. I thought this was great, not all fans can afford tickets to the games and never get to go to the stadium, it gave the fans a unique chance to see their favorite team. Even my parents and sister come with me to enjoy the day. It was also my first experience in a press box, it was awesome, the press area had a cafeteria and the seats were the best seats in the stadium. Practice wise the Ravens did more team practices than their usual practice. The safeties all had great days, Safety Ken Hamlin had two interceptions, he was the standout of the day. The players had a longer practice than their usually day but they were happy that they did not have to have two practices. It was like a practice and a half rather than two full practices. I also thought this was a great time for the rookies to get to practice on the stadium turf before Thursdays preseason game, maybe some will play better. Head Coach John Harbaugh seemed to agree with me when I asked him in his press conference. Many players and coaches stayed long after the practice ended to sign autographs. Head coach John Harbaugh stayed out signing autographs for at least 20 minutes if not longer. Please follow and like us:
Middletown South Middletown High School South’s young girls cross-country team recently finished an unbeaten season with its first Shore Conference A North championship in 10 years, but it’s not about to stop with that honor.Last season, the Eagles won the NJSIAA Central Jersey Group III championship and are looking to surpass last year’s seventh place finish in the groups meet. With an experienced team that does not have a senior among the top seven runners, the Eagles went 7-0 in the division and unseated defending champion Howell High School.“We’re looking farther and, with the same group as last year, we want to make it to the MOC (Meet of Champions),” said Bill Clifton, who coaches the team with his wife, Kathleen. The top three teams advance out of the group meets to the MOC, and Middletown South was 30 points away.“In past times, we’ve had to convince the girls we’ve had, but this group is special,” Kathleen Clifton said. “They just want to learn. Over the years, you get groups you have to motivate so much so that you go through highs and lows, but this group is a throwback. They’re hungry, strong, confident but humble and want to hear what we expect them to do. It’s a magical, incredible group of girls.”Christiana Rutkowski, a junior who has led the team in every meet over the past two seasons, recently finished third overall in the Maroon Invitational at Thompson Park in 19:56, as Middletown South won the team title for the second straight year, finishing ahead of the No. 17-state ranked Academy of the Holy Angels, 42-53. Junior Cassidy Weimar, the No. 2 runner, clocked a 20:28 for fifth place.Junior Brianna Haspel, who also plays on the perennial division contending basketball team, was ninth in 21:03 and has been the No. 3 runner on the team. Mary Kate Himmelberg, a sophomore who is the No. 4 runner, was 10th in 21:13. Rutkowski and Weimar finished 1-2 in a key quadrangular on Sept. 19, when Middletown South swept leading contenders Howell, Freehold Township High School and Colts Neck High School in the same meet at Buck Mill Park in Colts Neck.“That made us realize, maybe we are really good this season,” Bill Clifton said. “We all want the same goal — to make the Meet of Champions,” said Rutkowski, who individually finished 16th in the group meet. The top 10 in each group qualify individually for the MOC. “We’re all very close friends, and that makes us very good.”The Eagles will be running in the Fall Classic Invitational onOct. 13 at Thompson Park, whereMiddletown South will be running in the state sectionals later in the month. Then they will compete in the Monmouth County championships on Oct. 16. Middletown South was sixth in the county meet last year and is looking for its first county title since the 2002 season.“That’s usually our takeoff meet,” Bill Clifton said of the county meet that is a primer for the state meets.Other top runners include sophomore Sylvie Evarts, who has been the No. 5 runner, and freshman Gianna Campanale, who Bill Clifton said “makes us better than last year.”Juniors Christine Caccamo and Bridgette Laurence have alternated at the seventh spot. Senior Lianne Donohue is pressing hard to move up into the lineup.Other freshmen have continued to develop to add depth farther down the lineup, and the junior varsity team is also priming prospects.“I like that they have their own goals of what they want to accomplish because in the past, they’d rely on us for that,” Bill Clifton said. “This year, they’re so motivated. They want to get to the MOC and will do anything to get there. They’re goaloriented and very hard workers. They make no excuses. It’s refreshed us as coaches.” BY WAYNE WITKOWSKI Correspondent
Clark County Public Health officials were among the first to identify a nationwide salmonella outbreak linked to tuna loins and tuna steaks.Locally, the case began with five reports of illness to Clark County Public Health in late August. Since then, the outbreak has grown to 30 cases in seven states and led to a recall of a California-based company’s tuna products.The outbreak includes six confirmed and two presumed cases in Clark County, said Dr. Alan Melnick, Clark County health officer.The investigation is continuing at the national level by the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.“The fact that little, old Clark County was able to be one of the first people to pick up on this ongoing outbreak really highlights the strengths of this system we’ve developed,” said Madison Riethman, an applied epidemiology fellow at Clark County Public Health, during a county health board meeting Wednesday.Local health officials first learned of a possible outbreak on Aug. 29, when local laboratories reported five cases of salmonella, a bacteria that causes illness with symptoms such as diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Typically, the department gets three to eight reports each month, Riethman said.“The fact that we got five in one day was a big red flag,” she said.But interviews with those sickened didn’t reveal any commonalities, Riethman said. They didn’t dine at the same places or attend the same event. The five cases didn’t appear to have any connection, she said.But on Sept. 8, the state public health lab reported that additional testing revealed all five people were sickened by salmonella with the same DNA.
