Womens Tennis Welcomes Oregon Sunday

Feb. 3, 2018Untitled Document

THE FLATS – The 7th-ranked Georgia Tech women’s tennis team is back in action at the Ken Byers Tennis Complex this weekend, hosting Oregon at noon on Sunday.

THE SCENE: Tech opened the spring slate posting a 2-0 record in the ITA Kick-Off Weekend last weekend. The Jackets look to go 3-0 on the season on Sunday, facing Oregon for the second time in program history. Last season, the Jackets headed out west to face Oregon, topping the Ducks, 6-1. Oregon brings a 3-1 record into weekend play and faces Georgia State on Saturday before meeting the Jackets on Sunday.

FAMILIAR FACES: As the Jackets welcome the Ducks to Ken Byers this weekend, they also welcome back former Georgia Tech standout Alison Silverio, head coach of Oregon. Silverio served as an assistant coach at Tech for four years after proudly wearing the Tech uniform and helping lead the Jackets to a 2007 National Championship. Silverio is in her fourth year at Oregon.

PARKING: Parking for Sunday’s match will be available in the McCamish Lot.

ITA RANKINGS: Georgia Tech comes into the weekend action as the 7th-ranked team in the country according to the latest ITA rankings released this week. Carrying over from the fall individual rankings, a total of three nationally-ranked singles players and a trio of nationally ranked doubles teams will compete this weekend in Atlanta. Below are the full ranking listings:

No. 5 Paige Hourigan/Kenya Jones (Georgia Tech)
No. 17 Alyssa Tobita/Shweta Sangwan (Oregon)
No. 52 Julia Eshet/Shweta Sangwan (Oregon)



Adventures in Oregon: Warrenton to Seaside

After a couple of days of adventures in and around Astoria, OR, we were heading south toward Seaside. We had our itinerary planned and were excited to begin the day’s exploits.

Living in the desert of Arizona we don’t often have a chance to visit shore towns and see nautical sights and the idea tha we could get a close up view of an actual shipwreck could not be resisted. The British vessel, the Peter Iredale, ran aground on October 25, 1906 on its way to the Columbia River and was abandoned near Fort Stevens in Warrenton. As you can see in the photo below, people can walk right up to the remainder of the wreck when the tide is low.

The hulk was quite impressive when considering it has been windswept and bathed in salt water for more than a century.

Although this day didn’t provide the best weather, when the sun poked through visitors could appreciate the form and structure of the ship along with a stark beauty created by the rust tones against the blue-grey seascape.

At times, the crowds would grow as photographers and dog walkers visited the water’s edge to take in the sight. We soon moved to other areas of Fort Stevens State Park to continue our explorations.

I never appreciated how much the west coast had prepared for invasion during WW II. Certainly Fort Stevens provided plenty of proof. This (below) was one of turrets that can be easily seen among the many other fortified batteries.

After hiking one of the major trails through Fort Stevens and gaining an understanding of the military preparations there, we made our way to another planned stop, the Necanicum Estuary near Seaside. I was hopeful that we could spot a bird or two that I would be able to mark off my birding list and indeed we did pass some birdwatchers eyeing a Cedar Waxwing. Much to our surprise, it wasn’t birds that caught our attention…

… there was a herd of elk. They were quite numerous. One doe found us interesting, but not enough to stop eating.

We found ourselves in an unusual and unexpected situation as the hiking path we used to get to the bay was soon surrounded by the herd. A few males, which can weigh nearly a half a ton, were not happy that we were among their harem. We carefully made our way to the shoreline. There were some does there as well, but only a few.

Another doe nearby looked on as we approached the beach.

We were able to circle around to find a clear way back to the parking area and were glad to arrive safely at the car to head to our evening’s accommodations.

Oregon Beer News, 05/25/2018

Happy Memorial Day weekend! Who’s ready for a long weekend to kick off summer? Here’s the roundup of news and events in Oregon beer to help you plan out the holiday; as usual I’ll be periodically updating this post throughout the day with news as I find it, so check back in from time to time. And if you have news to share, please let me know!

Central Oregon Beer Week wraps up this weekend, with the signature SMaSH Fest taking place at McMenamins Old St. Francis School on Saturday the 26th. SMaSH Fest — for “Single Malt and Single Hop” — features all SMaSH beers (except, apparently, for Oblivion Brewing, listing three hops) and many of the participating breweries brewed one special for this fest. It takes place all day starting at 11am, and costs $25 which includes admission, ten 4-ounce tasters and the commemorative pint glass. The full list of breweries and beers is listed on the page.

Bend’s Immersion Brewing is celebrating its second anniversary as part of Beer Week! The brewery is throwing a two-day party Friday and Saturday: “Come celebrate with us! We are throwing our 2nd anniversary party on May 25 and 26, kicking off with Same Coin at 7pm and Company Grand playing from 8-10pm on Friday night. Saturday we will have live local music all day. Beer garden, bounce houses, beer specials and more. SUMMER STARTS NOW!” Congrats on two years, and to more to come!

Here’s the roundup of the rest of the COBW events for this weekend:

Friday, May 25

Bine Valley Brewing (Salem): The brewery is hosting the kick off party for its Summer Series of beers Friday starting at 4pm: “Introducing the first in our summer series, IPH Only IPA. Golden naked oats give this juicy beer a soft mouth feel while the blend of Mosaic, BRU-1, and Ekuanot hops bring a balanced bitterness. Paired with notes of orange, lime, papaya and a subtle spiciness this beer is one you won’t want to miss! Each month through August we will be brewing up a special summer beer just for you! Stay tuned and, as always, BE THE BINE.”

Coin Toss Brewing (Oregon City) is hosting the Friday release party for its collaboration beer with Bent Shovel Brewing, Toss This Job and Shovel Wit: “Join us for the release of “Toss This Job and Shovel Wit” which celebrates the departure from the corporate world for Coin Toss founder Tim Hohl & Bent Shovel Brewing’s Rick Strauss. Both left their day jobs earlier this year to become full time brewery owners & have been plotting a collaboration ever since. The result is a delicious Belgian Wit is brewed with generous amounts of coriander, orange peel & blood orange. Perfect for celebrating the start of summer!”

The Bier Stein (Eugene) is raffling off a Sierra Nevada Brewing camping set from 5 to 8pm: “On Friday, May 25th we are raffling off a complete Sierra Nevada camping set up! The camping package includes a tent, hammock, backpack, 2 camp chairs, and a cooler! Tickets are available now and come with the purchase of any Sierra Nevada beer, but you can also purchase them for $1/ea or $5/8 tickets. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Oregon Dog Rescue! The final drawing will take place at 8:00pm and you must be present to win.”

Portland’s Hopworks Urban Brewery is releasing its latest beer, Totally Chill Hazy IPA, Friday from 5 to 8pm: “Hey, It’s all good. Totally Chill is a hazy IPA with mind-blowing, pineapple and ripe mango hop flavor from our Azacca, Mosaic, and El Dorado hops. The beer was brewed with generous amounts of oats, wheat and barley for a super cloudy look and fluffy mouthfeel. Come taste our newest seasonal beer! It’s available on draft or you can take home one of our 12oz. 6-packs to-go at all 3 pub locations. We will start pouring at 5pm.”

Oregon players lobbied for Mario Cristobal’s promotion at Oregon – Las Vegas Review-Journal

When Willie Taggart announced this month that he was leaving Oregon after one season to take his dream job at Florida State, there was speculation about a big-name coach taking over the program.

Ducks players were having none of that.

Green Valley High School alumnus Tyrell Crosby, a senior standout on the Oregon offensive line, took to social media a day after Taggart’s departure to announce that 70 players had signed a petition wanting the school to promote offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator Mario Cristobal to head coach. As Crosby was doing this, athletic director Rob Mullens was sequestered in an undisclosed location interviewing candidates.

“We are all fighting so hard for him to be HC, because we all know he’d fight just as hard for us,” Crosby posted on his Twitter account.

The players also started the hashtag #cristobALLIN.

Days later, Cristobal had the job and a five-year deal worth $12.5 million. His first game in charge of the program will be Saturday when Oregon meets No. 25 Boise State at 12:30 p.m. in the Las Vegas Bowl at Sam Boyd Stadium.

“It’s the most humbling thing in the world,” Cristobal said of the team’s outpouring of support. “For me, it’s a life-changing moment, because when you’re a coach, you’re a teacher. Why do you teach? To have an impact on others. When something like that occurs, you’re humbled and floored by it.”

Cristobal, whose parents fled Cuba early in Fidel Castro’s regime, is excited for his second opportunity as a head coach. He was the first Cuban-American head coach in FBS history when he got the job at Florida International in 2006 after the Panthers went 0-12. Four years later, they won the conference title.

After he was fired a year later, Cristobal landed at Alabama and had incredible success as an assistant head coach, recruiting coordinator and offensive line coach from 2013 through 2016.

Cristobal, 47, has said he earned a “football Ph.D” working for Nick Saban during a stint that included Cristobal being named national recruiter of the year in 2015. He came to Oregon when Taggart was hired before this season.

He always has been known for his strong relationships with his players, and them supporting him has only strengthened that bond.

“I was for it all the way,” said senior defensive lineman Elijah George, an Arbor View High School alumnus. “I love Cristobal. That’s my man. He’s just honest with us and so straightforward. He’s what you want in a coach. He brings that energy, and he’s just someone you want to play for and go anywhere with.”

Promoting Cristobal also has pretty much kept intact Oregon’s 2018 recruiting class, considered one of the best in the country. He is off the recruiting trail this week only because of Saturday’s game.

Staying busy has kept him from thinking about the roller coaster of emotions since Taggart left and he took over.

“I think it will probably settle in sometime in February,” Cristobal said. “As we’ve been working through the announcement and the bowl game and the recruiting, we’re just working. I guess I’ll start to think about that when there’s some time to breathe, but there’s no time for air right now.”
