Syracuse seniors kickstart blowout win against Colgate ahead of NCAA tournament

first_imgBefore Syracuse buried Colgate 19-6 on Saturday, the team honored its nine seniors with a pregame Senior Day ceremony.The Orange formed two lines in front of the tunnel by its bench, and each senior walked through with family escorting them to handshakes from head coach John Desko, athletic director Daryl Gross and lastly, director of operations Roy Simmons III.By the time seniors and parents posed for a group shot between the 30- and 40-yard line, Dominic Lamolinara, Derek Maltz, Matt Harris, Drew Jenkins, Billy Ward, Pat Powderly, Kyle Henry, Scott Loy and Chris Daddio had walked through the line as a prelude to an easy victory at the Carrie Dome.Every senior saw time but Powderly, who sported a blue jump suit and sat with an injury.“It was weird,” said Lamolinara before starting in goal. “But it was a great feeling going out with a group of guys that I’ve gotten so close with.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Other than that it was just a game and I’m glad we came out with the win.”The seniors made the most of their final regular-season home game.Daddio jumpstarted Syracuse by winning 10-of-15 first-half faceoffs — and 15-of-21 overall — before being pulled for Mike Iacono in the third quarter. Lamolinara allowed three goals in the first two frames. Harris and Jenkins were key cogs in a defensive effort that held Colgate to just six goals and none in the third. Loy netted a goal to push the Orange ahead 17-3 just before the fourth.And even Henry, a reserve attack that has seldom seen the field this season, got some playing time when Desko rolled out his bench for the last 18 minutes of play.Syracuse will have a quick turnaround before gearing up for NCAA tournament play beginning next weekend. This senior class has yet to capture a national title, and had one last chance to celebrate before making that final run.Said Daddio: “It was a good feeling, it’s nice to win on Senior Day.” Comments Published on May 3, 2014 at 9:30 pm Contact Jesse: | @dougherty_jesse Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

University adds policy for minors

first_imgThe university recently updated its policies to protect minors on campus from abuse and created a series of awareness programs, The Office of Equity and Diversity announced to all students via email Tuesday.The new policies collectively formalize procedures on how to react to and prevent child abuse. They detail the reporting process for allegations of child abuse or neglect, as well as the involvement of federal Child Services and law enforcement.The university also expanded its criminal background check policy so that those who have been convicted of a crime involving a minor are subject to further scrutiny.“The university is firmly committed to protecting the safety and well-being of minors in its care and on our campuses, such as patients, volunteer subjects of research, sports camp attendees and the children in our daycare and community outreach programs,” Senior Vice President of Administration Todd Dickey said in a statement.The new “Protecting Minors on Campus” policy says those under the age of 18 must not be left alone on campus, resident students may not babysit minors (including relatives) in their rooms, minors may not accompany students to class, minors must be monitored if they go to work with their parent or guardian and employees should not take sick children with them to work, rather administrators should be lenient in excusing missed days caused by sick children.Previously, all USC employees were informed that they must report suspicions of child abuse or neglect during their mandatory sexual harassment seminars, which occurred every two years in compliance with state law. The new policy is meant to make those practices official university procedure, according to Dickey.“Our most recent efforts reflect this commitment by aiming to clarify several policies and practices; many of which were already in place but had not been formalized,” Dickey said. “We believe this will lead to even greater protections for minors across both campuses.”The Office of Equity and Diversity also urged members of the USC community to watch a series of new educational videos related to protecting minors on campus.“As members of the Trojan Family, it is our responsibility to work together to promote a campus that is safe and secure for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors of any age,” the Office of Equity and Diversity said.last_img read more
