The road to Eugene, Ore. for the Poly High girls track team begins today in the CIF Southern Section Championships at Cerritos College. Today's meet will be the first step for the Jackrabbits toward defending their CIF State title as well as a bid for the national championship in the Nike Team Nationals where Poly is the No. 1 team in the national rankings for the inaugural meet at Hayward Field at the University of Oregon on July 2. for the first running event. Poly is led by juniors Akawkaw Ndipagbor and Melia Cox and senior Tara Richmond. Ndipagbor will run in the 200 and 400 meters and as part of the 400 and 1,600 relays. In the 400, Ndipagbor won the 2008 state title as a freshman and is the fastest returnee in the event from last season at 53.12. She is also part of the Jackrabbits' 1,600 relay with senior Erica Winston and juniors Azia Walker and Arielle Stevenson that has the state's top time of 3:43.33. Poly will be looking for redemption for a loss to Rancho Verde in the 400 relay in the Arcadia Invitational on April 9 that produced the state's top two times of 45.68 and 45.92. In the field events, Cox and Richmond are first and second on the yearly state list at 41 feet, 21/2 inches and 40 5 1/2 as the only jumpers in California to surpass 40 feet this season. Cox also will run in the 100 hurdles, the 300 hurdles and in the 400 relay. Richmond, who will attend Columbia, is the reigning Southern Section Division I champion in the high jump and the 2009 state meet runner up. The girls 800 will be one of the most competitive events with three of the state's top five runners Paramount senior Tiffany LaMar, Poly junior Dynasty Gammage and Millikan senior Paisley Pettway. LaMar and Gammage ran career bests of 2:10.58 and 2:10.93 in the Division I preliminaries last Saturday. Pettway finished third in the 2009 state meet in a personal best 2:08.57 and is the state's top returnee. Millikan should contend for a top five finish in the team standings with Pettway and senior Ashley Smith in the 200, the 100 hurdles and the long jump. The Poly boys are seeking their eighth title in 10 years behind senior Kaelin Clay, who will run in the 100 and the 200 and on the Jackrabbits 400 and 1,600 relays that have the state's third fastest marks of 40.72 and 3:15.68. 308497 102 Nike Air Jordan 4 IV Retro Pure Money White Metallic Silver ,378037 117 Kids Air Jordan 11 Legend Blue White Black Legend Blue 308497 101 Nike Air Jordan 4 IV Retro White Chrome Classic Green Air Jordan 5Lab3 Silver Nike Kobe 9 Low EM XDR Red Black Women Size 580521 108 Air Jordan 11 Low GS Pink Snakeskin 308308 001 Nike Air Jordan 2 II Retro Black Chrome 653996 840 Men Size Nike KD7 35K Degrees 2014 Nike Kobe 9 Low EM XDR Red Black 580521 143 Air Jordan 11 Low Aqua Safari White Turbo Green Volt Ice Black The Pirates right hander did just that, pitching effectively into the seventh inning of Pittsburgh's 5 1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night. Garrett Jones homered to help the Pirates win consecutive games for the first time in four weeks. A pending free agent, Correia (12 11) perhaps made his final start after two seasons with Pittsburgh, matching a career high in wins each year. He allowed six hits and one walk and had five strikeouts. "It's huge," Correia said in regards to making his final start a positive one. "It seems like when you go into the offseason on a bad one you can't stop thinking about that for weeks and weeks until so it's nice to have a good one to kind of go in on a positive note just to rest your mind a little bit going into the offseason." A day after being eliminated from the NL East division title race, the wild card Braves rested several regulars and shuffled players in and out of the lineup throughout the game. Atlanta will host the NL wild card game Friday. "It was good to get (reserves) at bats to keep them sharp," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "We're going to have a lot more position players on the roster for Friday's game than the other rounds so I feel it's important that we get them at bats." Gonzalez said he will start his regular lineup for the regular season finale Wednesday and pull them after two at bats to get more reserves some action. The Pirates (79 82) tied for their most wins in a season since their North American major professional sports record streak of 20 losing seasons began in 1993. The 1999 Pirates went 79 83. Pittsburgh previously won two straight games Sept. 4 5. The Pirates faded in the second half, ending their run at a playoff spot. Pittsburgh rookie Starling Marte had three hits and scored twice, giving him five hits and four runs in the series after making only two starts over the previous eight games in a management attempt for him to clear his head and focus on fundamentals. "It's always fun to watch a young man gain some confidence in this game," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "We're just trying to make sure he keeps it simple because of what he's capable of. We just want him to try to slow the game down and let those skills play." Jones' homer was his 27th. He also homered in his previous game Sunday. After Pittsburgh took a 2 0 lead with single runs in the first and second innings off Tommy Hanson (13 10), Atlanta got its lone run in the fourth when Juan Francisco doubled in Lyle Overbay. Jones' homer in the fifth came with Alex Presley on base and made it 5 1. In what might have been his final appearance of the season, Hanson no lock for the playoff roster allowed five runs on nine hits in six innings. Hanson, who struck out six, went almost two months between wins before a strong outing in his previous start. "It's not the way I wanted to finish but it is what it is," Hanson said. "It kind of got away from me at times and I've got to make adjustments and get better. My fastball command was there at times then I lost it." The Braves have scored a total of 11 runs in their past five games. NOTES: The announced crowd of 15,272 included several thousand Braves fans, many of whom chanted and called for 3B Chipper Jones to make an appearance. Jones, who has said he will retire at the end of the season, delivered the pregame lineup card. By not playing Tuesday, he will not reach 2,500 career games. . Atlanta's Freddie Freeman was ejected by third base umpire Jeff Nelson after striking out as a pinch hitter in the eighth. . Jones has 45 career home runs at PNC Park, tied with Brian Giles for third most in the ballpark's 12 year history. . The Braves will start RHP Ben Sheets (4 4, 3.54 ERA) in the regular season finale Wednesday after Atlanta manager bumped RHP Tim Hudson from the role after the Braves were eliminated from the division title race. Burnett (16 9, 3.43) was on the losing end of a no hitter by Cincinnati's Homer Bailey in his most recent outing Friday.

The Fulbright Scholar Program awards grants to college and university faculty to conduct research, teach or study abroad. The 54 year old Fulbright programs also fund graduate students and scholars visiting the United States. Eight scholars from other countries are visiting the university this year. The four UW Madison participants already have begun their work abroad. They are: Nancy R. Forster, Institute for Environmental Studies, will do lecturing and research at the University of Guadalajara, Mexico, through June. Charles Graham Hill, chemical engineering, will do lecturing and research at Institute of Catalisis, Madrid, Spain through this June. Thomas Popkewitz, curriculum and instruction, will do lecturing and research at University of Helsinki, Finland, through May. John D. Strasma, agricultural and applied economics, will lecture at University of New Brunswick, Frederiction, New Brunswick, Canada. A university chapter of the Fulbright Association was founded in the fall of 1999. Scholarship created for nonprofits The School of Business has created a special executive master of business administration scholarship for someone currently working for a Wisconsin non profit organization. The scholarship will pay 75 percent of the student's tuition for both years of the Executive MBA program beginning in fall 2000. Program fees are $20,000 per year. "By establishing this scholarship, we hope to provide opportunities for individuals who will lead the nonprofit sector," Dean Andrew J. Policano says. "Non profit organizations are critical to our community. Managing them requires a high level of management and business skill." The Executive MBA program is a rigorous two year advanced business program designed for mid and upper level managers. It meets on Fridays and Saturdays every other weekend for two school years. About 30 students are admitted each fall. Applicants for the scholarship must meet the program's criteria and be employed full time with a not for profit group. Deadline: June 1. A new dinner lecture series at the University Club will explore some of the innovations of academic pursuit in two remaining events this spring: "Harry Who? The Harry Potter Phenomenon," father daughter team David A. Riley, UW Madison professor of child and family studies, and Hannah B. Riley, April 4. The pair will debate the psychology of the books, a sensation (and cause of alarm among some parents) around the world. "In Unam Pluribus: American Regional English," Joan Houston Hall, associate editor of the Dictionary of American Regional English, May 11. Hall will draw upon her experience with the dictionary, produced at UW Madison, to offer insight into the diversity of our language and the way it has changed over the last 400 years. Federal law requires that all persons involved with the shipping and receiving of hazardous materials must be trained, tested and certified. The federal Department of Transportation has started a more aggressive campaign to inspect universities and other public institutions for violations. Such an unannounced inspection came last month to the State Laboratory of Hygiene, according to Jan Klein, a biosafety specialist with the Safety Department. Staff there were not cited with violations, and in fact were complimented for taking the training commitment seriously. However, Klein estimates that many faculty and staff on campus still need this basic certification to avoid compliance problems. Fines for seemingly minor violations in documentation and packaging can run $2,600 or more per case. "Some staff will do anything they are asked in order to comply," Klein says. "Others think it can't possible apply to them, and still others just don't get the message."

It's not a truly inspirational story but there was a why to how it all began. In high school I wasn't the most devoted individual when it came to boys that I adorned with the title "boyfriend" and to tell the absolute truth I got caught kissing someone else. At fifteen hormones are just going everywhere and having come out of my awkward middle school phase my sophomore year, I was happy to have the attention. Well, once I was busted, I got dumped and it was well deserved. When I found out that my now ex boyfriend joined cross country, I thought it would be the perfect way to accidentally spend time with him. And so I signed up without much thought, thinking it would be an easy activity. I had run a lot when I played soccer and assumed that it would come naturally. Running is just moving your legs back and forth, right? My first practice was a bit of an eye opener, what I first found out was that the boys and the girls barely interacted, seeing one another only at meets. Practices were completely separate and there was no time for casual conversation. There were two coaches, one whose name I do not remember because he was a little nicer and then the head coach, Mr. O'Donnell. (he was also a physics teacher, yikes.) This man was no joke and immediately made the beginners start running around the field to see where we were at. I was clearly a disappointment. How do I know? Well, he told me so. I wanted to quit. Right away. But I knew I would look stupid and in fact, that is mostly what has kept me running all these years, not wanting to look stupid. Just kidding, there's more to it than that. The season went slowly and after a series of moments where Mr. O'Donnell was in my face telling me not to quit I learned how to run properly. I went from a meager .25 miles to a stunning and graceful 10. What kept me going was the encouragement of the strong females around me. The more experienced folk telling me never to quit, don't walk, keep going, whatever you do just keep going. One day, a very poignant lady told me: "Endurance is when your body gives out and your heart takes over" definitely a little stolen from a Nike commercial but I didn't care. It made perfect sense. Running is mind over matter. And once I figured that out I was all in it. Along with the pack, I would roll my sleeves up, embrace the sweat and literally, just do it. To date, I have been running for thirteen years, with some large gaps in between. There have been weeks and sometimes months that I have needed a break from it. Like a relationship, I needed some time to myself to regroup. What I have figured out though, over the years, is that I am not on a search for perfection. I am not trying to run a marathon. I am not on a mission to be faster than all the rest. I am, however, seeking out that quiet place that running allows me to visit, if only for a short while. It's a time when all my thoughts are gone, as I am coming down the hill, collecting myself, I just embrace what is around me and sometimes smile at the thought that I just made it to the top. For me, as I have told dozens of people, running is spiritual. The shoes I choose give me strength, the music I listen to makes me believe and as I am doing it, with my feet on that pavement, I am able to sort through all the piles of shit in my brain that clutter my space. I also take the time to look around. My favorite thing is running at dawn, when else, can I see such beauty and with no one else near me? It's a rare thing and I love it. Recently, I have been running with a friend who once told me she had no endurance. This morning she made is 2.5 miles without stopping. We had with us, another friend who I consider a natural athlete. And truly, I was proud of us all. I don't know if they realize it but running with them inspires me just as much as I maybe inspire them. It holds me accountable and pushes me harder. It's something I need because sometimes I forget how much I love to run. When I see her make it up that hill, when I know there use to be self doubt there, I feel incredible for her. I know that feeling and I am so glad that she gets to experience it. Thirteen years has meant a lot of people like her that I have talked up that hill. But this morning, when we all did it in unison, might have been my favorite. In life, there are so few things that we hold in such high regard. This is mine. An eternal flame that will never go out. I encourage you all to try it some time. Here are some of my favorite running items: Every year they change this shoe and it's always great. It saved me from almost giving up running completely.
