Megan Rain Forced
My first thought on Monday morning (groggy, fresh out of the woods, somewhere in the 8 o\u2019clock hour on America\u2019s east coast) was of that chaotic throw Jesse Marsch launched from Forest\u2019s sideline on Sunday afternoon. His attempt to get the ball back in play was flustered, forced, aggressive, even. It conveyed the dying embers of his Premier League time, punctuated by one last frantic rally, come on, let\u2019s go.

The game would remain scoreless going into the top of the seventh where Hester would once again get into trouble. With the game on the line in the top of the seven with two outs and the bases loaded the game would go into a thirty minute weather delay because of the rain.
DSHA struck first, scoring in the 12th minute. The Dashers forced a turnover, transitioned well, then sophomore midfielder Megan Crevoiserat played a nifty through ball to junior forward Grace Lenz, who went back post from 18 yards for a 1-0 DSHA lead.
Ridings' Dominant Weekend Earns Her Another GNAC Pitcher of the Week - The only thing that could stop Tia Ridings over the weekend was mother nature herself. Ridings nabbed her second GNAC Pitcher of the Week award after recording a career-high 12 strikeouts and going five innings into a no-hitter before a rain delay disrupted the momentum.On Saturday, Ridings was nearly untouchable, going for a complete game shutout with a career-high 12 strikeouts. Central Washington only recorded four hits off the lefty and fell 3-0 to the Saints. She began the afternoon by striking out the side in the first, along with two strikeouts in the third, fourth, and fifth. Ridings tallied at least one strikeout in all seven innings.As difficult as it was to top Saturday's performance, Ridings was well on her way on Sunday. Thru five innings, Ridings had no-hit the Wildcats with four punchouts; however, the weather of Lacey did not cooperate. An hour-long rain delay forced the game to a standstill, and when the action resumed, Ridings recorded one more out before the Wilcats managed to finally record a hit. Ridings finished the sixth inning, giving up two runs, but the Saints stormed back with seven in the bottom of the frame to win the ball game.
In the days following the rain, the landscape is vastly transformed. The previously barren earth sprouts a green mane, while acacia trees finally look more leafy than thorny. Animals have also responded. Roadside puddles are filled with enormous African bullfrogs, Leopard tortoises race across roads with re-energized vigor, and the hordes of antelope, once concentrated in mass at man-made water holes, are nowhere to be found, having dispersed to newly formed pools throughout the landscape. The birds are lively as well. Prospective passerines gather grasses to build nests within barbed branches. A second visit to our nest boxes reveals that almost a dozen new female hornbills, the largest cavity-nesters here in Namibia, have begun to build. Things are looking up.
To make matters worse, climate change models predict increasing aridification of Namibia over the coming century. This means less annual rainfall, and more frequent and severe droughts. The current circumstance may severely hamper my own research, but these projections intensify the overall need for research on cavity-nesting guilds. How will species respond to more frequent droughts? How will less rainfall impact tree growth and cavity availability? How will these changes alter the interactions between species? If there is to be any hope of preserving these communities, it is vital that we understand their structure so that efforts can be made to maintain them.
Funding is triggered by pre-set thresholds such as rainfall forecasts combined with rising river levels, Maarten van Aalst, director of the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
When a visit to Boston spurs Judy's interest in Revolutionary heroes and heroines, she's soon on a quest for more independence in this hilarious new episode from Megan McDonald and Peter H. Reynolds. Huzzah! She, Judy Moody, would hereby, this day, make the Judy Moody Declaration of Independence. With alien rights and her own Purse of Happiness and everything. Hear ye! Hear ye! Everyone knows that Judy Moody has a mood for every occasion, and now a visit to Boston has put our famous third grader in a revolutionary mood. When Judy meets an English girl named Tori at the Tea Party ship, she is gobsmacked to learn how many liberties her British friend enjoys -- her very own phone, private loo, and pounds of allowance. When a day of cheerfully doing her chores doesn't earn Judy Moody more rights, and staging a revolt in the form of a tea-throwing Boston Tub Party has her dad reading the riot act, Judy is forced into temporary retreat. Who would guess that a real-life crisis involving her brother, Stink, would finally give Judy a chance to show her courageous quick thinking - -and prove her independence, once and for all?

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - The Michigan State softball team (13-16, 0-3 Big Ten) dropped a 13-3 decision to Illinois Saturday afternoon in a rain soaked game. The Spartans posted three hits in the game, highlighted by senior Kara Weigle's three-run home run with two outs in the fifth inning.
Sophomore Karen Fox drew a walk in the fifth with one out for the Spartans, and freshman Ali Grant reached first base by a walk. With two outs, Weigle hit her third home run of the season to far left field, just inside the foul pole to break on to the scoreboard. Padilla then reached on a walk, but Perry forced a pop up to end the game.
Ackerman pitched three innings for her sixth win of the season. She allowed just one hit and struck out four against zero walks. She did hit three batters, but those came during the opening two innings during a steady rain.
Ackerman was matching zeroes in the circle with Loras starter Ashlyn Hemm, but she needed her best effort to get out of this jam. Ackerman fanned Hemm and then forced a comebacker from the bat of Claire Peachey. The Maryville pitcher played it safe and held the ball while preventing the run from scoring, but now the bases were loaded. 041b061a72
