When Anthony Pugliese walked into a Monday morning class last year, his professor thought he had gotten into a fight that weekend. His face was filled with bruises and cuts, not from a fight, but from that Saturday’s rugby match.Pugliese, a sophomore on the Syracuse club rugby team, wakes up each morning after games with bumps, bruises and cuts. Yet he remains unconcerned about his safety, because he earned playing time as a freshman and cracked the top 15 line-ups this fall. Over the last two years, only four sophomores have broken into the starting lineup.For the past two seasons, SU has finished first or second in the Empire Conference. This season, the team will compete in an Expanded Liberty Conference, the largest Division 1-A conference on the East Coast. The Liberty conference consists of three divisions, each with six teams. Much of the Orange’s success can be credited to the team’s depth, especially that provided by Pugliese, who was unanimous MVP in a match this month.“He had three tries and it was the best I’ve ever seen him play,” teammate Matt Magargee said. “Pugs participates fully at every practice as opposed to other upperclassman.”Pugliese grew up in Staten Island and was exposed to rugby early. He attended Xavier High School in Manhattan, a top-ranked rugby school in the country where he served as captain of the team. Now, he’s a leader for Syracuse.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Though he is an underclassman,” Magargee said, “he is viewed as one of the leaders of the team.”Pugliese works out three times a week. He ensures his workouts come earlier in the week so he feels no soreness during games, often played on Saturday. When lifting, he aims to hit six-to-eight reps on bench and squat. In the fall, the rugby team practices every day of the week and plays games on Saturdays. In the winter, SU trains “sporadically” to stay fit.In the spring, Syracuse plays seven-on-seven, rather than the standard 15-on-15. The Orange practices around three to four times per week with five-game tournaments on Saturdays. Pugliese has attended nearly every team meeting and practice.“He is never slacking off,” junior teammate John Lombardi said, “always doing what is needed and giving it his all.”Last year at Pittsburgh, Pugliese tried to score as snow covered the field. The conditions lead to the opposing team to drop the ball, he said. Pugliese took advantage by picking up the ball and finding the try zone in the snow-covered field.“I picked (the ball) up and just took off,” Pugliese said. “Then all of a sudden, I heard my teammates scream, ‘Put the ball down,’ which is how you score in rugby, and I just dropped to the floor to put it down.”Pugliese’s experience in high school provided him an upper edge to earn playing time early at Syracuse. He understands structure and strategies of the game, Syracuse head coach Robert Wilson said, positioning him to contribute in a heightened role this fall as just a sophomore.

Authorities in South Carolina have arrested a woman who reportedly licked her hands and began touching various items while shopping inside of a grocery and sandwich shop.The incident occurred on Saturday at an IGA grocery store in Sumter, South Carolina.Authorities say they were called to the store once employees noticed that the woman, Shenir Gibson Holliday, return to the store after causing problems the week before.The manager of the Sub Station II sandwich shop told reporters that in the week prior to this incident,the same woman was seen licking coins and putting them back inside of a tip jar. She then licked her hands before handing over money to pay for items and touched the shop’s credit card machine. The manager says Holliday then left the shop before staff members finished making her food and said that she would be back.When authorities arrived for the incident, Holliday was not at the store.In this recent incident, surveillance video showed Holliday coughing, then licking her hands before opening a freezer door and touching various items.She has since been charged with aggravated breach of peace and food tampering and is being held at a detention center on a $100,000 bond.Additionally, she has been issued a trespassing order for the sandwich shop, has been cited for violating the state’s home or work order, and has been ordered to get tested for the coronavirus.
Facebook3Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston County Board of Commissioners Thurston County has been selected to receive $25,000 as part of the Healthiest Cities & Counties Challenge (the Challenge) Spotlight Award for its “Active Design for a Healthier Community” project. Ten winners and five honorable mentions were selected to improve opportunities for all Americans to take an active role in healthy living – regardless of income, education or ethnic background.The award is part of the Healthiest Cities & Counties Challenge, an initiative launched in 2016 by the Aetna Foundation, along with the American Public Health Association (APHA) and the National Association of Counties (NACo), supporting small-to-midsize cities and counties to implement innovative solutions for their local public health issues. The $1.5 million Challenge competition is awarded among communities around the U.S. for programs to improve access to healthy foods, increase physical activity, and reduce violence and crime. Fifty finalists were chosen based on strategies to improve the health of their communities in at least one of five areas: healthy behaviors, community safety, built environment, social/economic factors, and environmental exposures.The Thurston Thrives Community Design Action Team project focuses on identifying and supporting improvements to Thurston County’s regional trails, to make them more accessible for people living nearby to use. It’s part of an overall strategy to make daily physical activity easier for local residents, boosting their levels of exercise (30 minutes per day for adults, 60 minutes per day for children and youth). The project has posted its results on the Thurston County Public Health & Social Services website. These include places where trail access paths are needed, number of nearby residents or employees, and locations for benches, signs, and other improvements.“This award recognizes the great partnerships at the heart of Thurston Thrives, and our continuing efforts to build a healthier community,” said Schelli Slaughter, Director of the County’s Public Health & Social Services Department. “The Community Design team and other local partners are working hard to make it easy, enjoyable, and safe to go for a walk or engage in active transportation, so residents can get more healthy activity every day.”“At the Aetna Foundation, we know that a positive health impact can be made when communities work together to tackle social determinants of health,” said Dr. Garth Graham, president of the Aetna Foundation. “We are honored to showcase these innovative organizations as Spotlight Award winners for their commitment to improving local health conditions and creating healthier, safer places.”For more information on the Spotlight Awards, the recognized organizations, and the Challenge, visit www.healthiestcities.org. Information on the local team’s work will be shared at the February 13 Board of Health meeting and at a regional active community design forum in March.
