first_img Aug. 31, 2007   Box Score      FAIRBANKS, Alaska – The Alaskan air didn’t cool off the UWF Volleyball team, as they posted a 30-25, 30-18, 30-24 win over Humboldt State in the opening match of the Nanook Classic in Fairbanks, Alaska. Junior Outside Hitter Kimberly Clark paced the offense with 14 kills, and setter Madeline Gonzalez had 41 Assists, as the Argos offense proved too strong for Humboldt State. “They had a hard time stopping our offense, and Maddie (Gonzalez) distributed the ball real well, which made us very efficient on offense,” explained Head Coach Melissa Wolter. She added, “Kim (Clark) had a really nice match as well.”Helping Clark with the offensive attack was Senior Danielle Spitzer (7 kills, 4 blocks), Junior Luciana Rapach (7 kills), Senior Isabela Gualberto (7 kills), and Freshmen Chelsea Wilhoite (6 kills). Defensively, the numbers showed a balanced team effort also, as Rapach (12 digs), Clark (8 digs), and Gonzalez (8 digs), lead the way for the Argos. The victory puts UWF at 5-0 for the young season, While Humboldt State drops to 3-3.The Argos with nearly an entire day of travel, and one day to acclimatize, appeared to not be affected by the unusual travel. Overall, Wolter thought the team adapted real well to the different environment and climate and was very pleased. However, the Argos real test is playing two Matches tomorrow (Saturday) against Alaska-Fairbanks and Hawaii-Hilo. Game times are 1:00 PM and 8:00 PM Central time.The players have decided to put together a summary of the trip, and below is the first day entry from Isabela Gualberto:August 29 – The first day: We left our home town (Pensacola) this past Wednesday to experience a once in a lifetime opportunity. Knowing that we would encounter good competition in Alaska had the whole entire team anxious and excited. Being an Argo is not an easy task, as Coach Melissa Wolter does not waist time. She knew we were not going to have time to practice that Wednesday because we were going to be traveling the entire day, and for that same reason, she scheduled a 6:15 am training session. We left the Pensacola airport at 11:50 am., and had two connecting flights to Alaska with stops in Atlanta and Salt Lake City, Utah.The first flight was only one hour. We landed at Atlanta at 2:01 pm., and we ate lunch as a team at Atlanta’s airport, and got to see Big Boy the famous Rapper from Outkast. Then, we left Atlanta for Salt Lake City, and then, finally, we made it to Alaska at midnight – and the sun had just set!! We had pictured Alaska one way, but when we got there, we found a big surprise: no snow!! Apparently, we all thought Alaska was going to be covered in ice. We got to see some cool things at the airport like the polar bear. Then we got to our hotel and we met our host Danny…and finally, we went to bed.

first_img NBA trade rumors: Grizzlies explore Andre Iguodala market; Rockets, Mavs interested Well-traveled Jimmer Fredette has left the Warriors’ summer league team after only two games to minimize his chance of injury while he considers options overseas, the Bay Area News Group reported, citing unidentified league sources.Fredette, 30, informed the Warriors of his plan after a loss Tuesday to the Lakers in the California Classic. He wasn’t with the team for Wednesday’s game in Sacramento against the Heat and won’t travel with the Warriors to the Las Vegas Summer League from July 5-15, according to the report. “He still can play. I think he should still play,” said Warriors summer league coach Aaron Miles, who spoke with Fredette. “I should say this: I think he should do whatever he feels is best for him and his family. I know a lot of times as you get older, sometimes it’s more mental than physical. But I don’t know his situation. I don’t know what the reasoning behind it. But he definitely has a lot of basketball left.”The veteran shooting guard — a prolific scorer who has struggled to find a home in the NBA because of his defense and ballhandling skills — had only 19 points in 41 minutes in the two games. Related News Those around the veteran insisted to the Bay Area News Group that he wasn’t unhappy with his role or play with the Warriors. Still, the Warriors have placed a higher summer league priority on players expected to be on their regular-season roster, including 2019 draft picks Jordan Poole, Eric Paschall and Alen Smailagic, second-year guard Jacob Evans and fourth-year center Damian Jones.Fredette’s goal entering summer league play was to land on an NBA roster for next season, he said.He changed his mind about his future in recent days when an undisclosed number of overseas teams expressed interest, according to the Bay Area News Group, which cited an unidentified NBA source familiar with Fredette’s thinking. Fredette returned to the NBA near the end of the 2018-19 season after spending multiple years in China with the Shanghai Sharks. But he struggled in six games (3.7 points on 27.6 percent shooting in 10.8 minutes per game) with the Suns, who declined their option on him for 2019-20.He also has played in the NBA with the Kings (2011-14), Bulls (2014), Pelicans (2014-15) and Knicks (2016).center_img NBA free agency 2019 rumor roundup: A complete list of reported signings, trades from Day 4 Kawhi Leonard free agency rumors: Star taking his time ‘before deciding the next move’ Kawhi Leonard free agency rumors: Knicks canceled meeting with star because of ‘logistics’last_img read more
