After just returning to action a week ago at the University of Northern Iowa Twilight, the Wisconsin Badgers track programs have a busy schedule ahead of them for this weekend.Both the men and women’s teams will be traveling to Des Moines, Iowa for the heralded Drake Relays, otherwise known as “America’s Athletic Classic.” The prestigious event is host to some of the world’s top athletes as it attracts many gold medalists, as well as some of the nation’s top collegiate teams, year in and year out.Men’s head coach Ed Nuttycombe will be sending the following athletes to the Jim Duncan Track at Drake Stadium: Joe Thomas (shotput, discus throw), Mike Sracic (discus throw), Brent Boettcher (high jump special), Alozno Moore (triple jump), Rick Bellford (triple jump), Joe Conway (long jump), Darren Niedermeyer (pole vault), Zach McCollum (high jump), Nathan Brown (javelin throw), Dan Murray (800 meter run), Demi Omole (100 meter dash) and Paul Check (110 meter hurdles), as well as relay teams in the 4×400 meter, 4×100 meter, 1600 sprint medley and 4×200 meter.For the women’s team, Courtney Baur (hammer throw, shot put), Michelle Bellford (triple jump), Shunita Lucas (100 meter dash, distance medley), ‘A Havahla Haynes (3000 meter steeplechase), Amanda Ganser (3000 meter steeplechase), Katrina Rundhaug (5000 meter run), Linsey Blaisdell (5000 meter run) and Melissa Talbot (heptathlon) will be competing under head coach Jim Stinzi as well as relay teams in the 4×800 meter, 1600 sprint medley, 4×200 meter, 4×400 meter, 4×100 meter and 4×1600 meter.With Big Ten Championships less than a month away and NCAA championships soon thereafter, the Drake Relays will be a good event for both Nuttycombe and Stinzi to prepare their athletes against some of the nation’s top competition as the men seek to garner yet another Big Ten Triple Crown and the women hope to continue their steady improvement in Stinzi’s first year as coach.However, the Drake Relays won’t be the only event Wisconsin’s track and field teams will be competing in this weekend.Assistant coach Jerry Schumacher, also the Wisconsin men’s cross country head coach, will be sending his distance squad to the Oregon Invitational, a prominent meet for distance events.The distance runners, arguably the strongest part of the men’s track and field team, will try to help and propel the Badgers in the latter stretch of the season.The Badgers’ national ranking dropped from ninth overall to 11th this past week, but the distance runners are still holding on to their top individual rankings as Matt Tegenkamp is currently ranked sixth in the 5,000 meter run and Simon Bairu and Tim Nelson are ranked sixth and 11th, respectively — not to mention the 3,000 meter run indoor National Champion Chris Solinsky.As the men’s squad begins to prime themselves for the end-of-the-season stretch run, the presence of the distance runners will be essential as they hope to fulfill the Big Ten Triple Crown and also top their third-place national finish at indoors.Also on Wisconsin’s busy schedule for this weekend is the Loras Invitational. Both the men’s and women’s squads will be competing, but only those athletes whom did not qualify for the Drake Relays will be traveling to Loras. With some of the weaker teams around the Midwest, the meet will serve as more of a tune-up for those still hoping to hit some NCAA qualifying marks before the end of the outdoor season. Even though the Penn Relays were previously scheduled for this weekend as well, none of the team members will be competing in the event.

A search conducted at the New Amsterdam Prison on Saturday morning unearthed a number of contraband and other prohibited items.According to information received, the raid was conducted by ranks of the Guyana Prison Service (GPS) and Guyana Police Force (GPF), and five grams of marijuana, five cellular phones, and a number of improvised weapons, lighters and phone chargers were discovered.Less than one month ago, it was reported that officers had unearthed some 146 Ziploc bags containing marijuana and more than forty prohibited items from the Prison during an impromptu search of the penal facility.Director of Prisons, Gladwin Samuels, had informed that 146 Ziploc bags of narcotics, amounting to 292 grams; six cell phones, 12 phone chargers, five packets of cigarettes, eight improvised weapons, three SIM cards and seven lighters were discovered.Meanwhile on Friday, a raid conducted at the Lusignan Prison uncovered another set of illegal items, which included syringes with needles, six bottles of pepper sauce, six earphones, a number of razor blades, 17 chargers, 24 lighters, five cellular phones, 10 improvised weapons, eight metal spoons, two pairs of scissors, one plastic knife, two nail clippers, four bottles of oil with suspected cannabis seeds, three mirrors, one wrist watch, one pack of cards, one memory card, and a quantity of wire and Ziploc bags.Additionally, just one month before, a similar routine search had removed a number of knives, scissors and blades from the penitentiary.The Director of Prisons had at the time also indicated that five officers had been relieved of their duties after they were reportedly involved in an incident in which a package containing cannabis had been tossed into the Lusignan Prison Holding Bay area.Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan was greatly displeased with the numerous attempts being made to smuggle illegal items into the Prisons. He is of the belief that it is due to a possible collusion between officers and the prisoners.
A very similar break in took place the morning of November 5, when Apollo Avenue was robbed through the east entrance. Security footage from this morning shows three males wearing dark hooded sweatshirts, jeans, and light coloured gloves got out of the truck, and broke the display cases using hammers. The truck is believed to be an older model two-toned Dodge pickup, with a grey bottom and possibly purple top, and an extended cab. At this point RCMP says there is nothing to link this theft to the one earlier this month, in which no arrests have been made yet. However, as it involves the same M.O. and number of suspects, police are investigating whether there is a connection. – Advertisement -In the previous case, the truck used was stolen, and later found in the field south of Duncan Cran School. So far no trucks matching the description have been reported stolen to RCMP.
