first_imgPA Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine Convenes “It’s On Us PA” Campus Sexual Assault Prevention Roundtable at the University of Pittsburgh It’s On Us PA Harrisburg, PA – Pennsylvania Physician General Dr. Rachel Levine today convened an “It’s On Us PA” roundtable discussion at the University of Pittsburgh to solicit feedback from education and community stakeholders on the role of administrators, students, community members and policymakers in combating sexual violence in schools and on college campuses.Last month Governor Wolf announced “It’s On Us PA” – the first statewide campaign to address sexual assault in schools and on campuses. Building on the national “It’s On Us” movement launched by President Obama and Vice President Biden in 2014, “It’s On Us PA” engages education leaders as well as students, teachers, families, and communities to make a personal and public pledge to play a role in preventing and responding effectively to sexual violence. Since the launch less than a month ago, over 200 people – including representation from over 100 schools across the commonwealth – have taken the pledge and signed on to the campaign.“It is on all of us to ensure that Pennsylvania’s students receive a quality education without having to worry about the threat of sexual assault in our schools and on our college campuses,” said Dr. Levine. “Governor Wolf is committed to created schools that teach – and ensuring that those schools also provide a safe and nurturing environment for our students from kindergarten through college. Sexual assault should never be part of any student’s education experience – and I am proud to join Governor Wolf and the over 200 Pennsylvanians that have already taken the “It’s On Us PA” pledge.”Dr. Levine was joined at the event by State Senator Jay Costa, State Representative Dan Frankel, as well as representatives from the PA Department of Education, PA Commission for Women, PA Action Against Rape, Pittsburgh Council on Higher Education, Duquesne University, University of Pittsburgh, California University of PA, Indiana University of PA, Community College of Allegheny County, Carlow University, Chatham University, South Allegheny School District, Avonworth School District, Bethel Park School District, Allegheny Intermediate Unit, Woodland Hills School District, Baldwin-Whitehall School District, Northgate School District and South Fayette Township School District.“We all share in the responsibility to keep students safe and prevent sexual assaults on college campuses,” said Senator Costa. “I’m proud to be part of the “It’s On Us” campaign and see it as an opportunity to further open lines of communication and build bridges between our students and the community. While these discussions won’t be easy, they couldn’t be more important.”“I’m proud to join Physician General Levine for this important roundtable discussion in the heart of my legislative district,” said Representative Frankel. “President Obama and Governor Wolf have shown great leadership in working to combat the epidemic of campus sexual assaults and I believe the “It’s On Us PA” campaign is going to make a real difference in the lives and safety of our students across the Commonwealth.”Today’s event is an important step in a year of action, in which the Wolf Administration is working with community leaders and stakeholders from across the commonwealth to develop state-level policy recommendations to address the pressing issue of sexual assault in our schools and postsecondary institutions.# # #Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf February 22, 2016center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Unforced errors plague Syracuse in 5-2 loss against Georgia Tech

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Trailing 3-0 and 40-15 in her opening set against Georgia Tech’s Rasheeda McAdoo, Syracuse’s Rhiann Newborn backpedaled to hit a backhand groundstroke. The shot hit the top of the net and dribbled back toward Newborn, causing SU’s third singles player to stare at the ground before swinging her racket against the air.The sequence summed up a day that saw unforced errors plague Syracuse (8-12, 3-11 Atlantic Coast) throughout its 5-2 loss to No. 25 Georgia Tech (13-8, 9-5) at Drumlins Tennis Center on Sunday.“I thought we played a complete match,” head coach Younes Limam said. “I thought we fought really hard from start to finish. Unforced errors are just a part of tennis.”The trend started in doubles play. Down 7-4 in the eight-game pro set, the doubles team of Komal Safdar and Valeria Salazar had two opportunities at game point. They squandered both by making unforced errors, first at 40-30 and later at advantage. Georgia Tech’s Paige Hourigan and Kendal Woodard ultimately won the set and thus the match.Two courts to their left, Syracuse’s Breanna Bachini and Nicole Mitchell trailed 6-5 to McAdoo and Johnnise Renaud. At 30-30, Mitchell committed back-to-back unforced errors by hitting a volley long and a return into the net. Georgia Tech then took the next game to win the match, 8-5.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn singles play, Newborn rebounded after trailing 4-0 by winning two games. But trailing 4-2, she hit two consecutive forehands into the net, falling into a 5-2 hole that proved to be insurmountable.“I hate making unforced errors,” Newborn said. “It’s the worst thing, because you give away games and you give away too many points.”On the court to Newborn’s right, Amanda Rodgers was struggling with unforced errors. In a crucial spot at 3-3 in the first set, Rodgers hit two straight shots into the net to begin the game. The senior paused and yelled to herself, “Stop hitting it into the net!”Unable to follow her own directions, she hit another shot into the net while trailing 40-15, allowing Renaud to take a 4-3 lead in the set. Rodgers won the next three games to take the set, but unforced errors again troubled her in the second. Down 5-3, she committed five of them in one game and lost the set, 6-3.“I was making unforced errors because I felt a little rushed from her game,” said Rodgers, a former contributing writer for The Daily Orange. “She hit the ball really hard and flat… and there was nothing I could do about it. So I just had to weather the storm.”Rodgers limited those errors in the third set, which she won 7-5 to secure the match. Her teammates also played three set matches, but were not as fortunate.After splitting the first two sets with Hourigan at second singles, Salazar trailed 5-2 and was down match point in the third set when she hit a forehand into the net, dropping the set.Against Natasha Prokhnevska at fourth singles, Bachini won the first set, 6-1. She trailed 6-5 and 30-40 in the second set when she hit a backhand into the net, sending the match to a third set.Later down match point in the final set, Bachini hit a forehand wide from the baseline. She placed her hands on her head as Prokhnevska celebrated, having just won the match, 1-6, 7-5, 6-0.Limam watched from court three, where Rodgers was still playing, as Bachini’s match finished. Syracuse had lost its final regular-season match, one full of unforced errors.Said Limam: “Sometimes when you’re aggressive, you’re going to make a few errors.” Comments Published on April 19, 2015 at 4:38 pm Contact Michael: mdburk01@syr.edulast_img read more
