She plays shortstop for the Crusaders and has started since her freshman year.But come this spring, Buck will be playing with a smaller, lighter colored ball. They call it baseball and she will be playing on a national stage.Rylee BuckBuck, the daughter of T.D. and Sheila Buck, is one of 36 players named to the 2015 USA Baseball Women’s National Team Trials on Tuesday following a multi-event selection process approved by the U.S. Olympic Committee.Trials will be held May 22-24 with the final 18 players announced to represent the United States at this summer’s Pan American Games.“Finalizing Trials selections is always tough and this year proved to be particularly difficult with the level of talent we saw at the inaugural Women’s National Open,” Women’s National Team Director, Ashley Bratcher, said. “We are extremely pleased with the group of women we have coming into Trials in May and look forward to the next phase of preparation for this summer’s Pan American Games.”Players were named to the Trials from the 2014 USA Baseball Women’s National Team Identification Series, the 2015 USA Baseball Women’s National Open, as well as a petition process and discretionary selections.Buck attended the women’s national baseball tryouts in mid-January in Houston, Texas.The roster is comprised of athletes from 13 different states, as well as an athlete from Washington, D.C. California is the most represented state with nine athletes named to the Trials roster, followed by Texas with six and Florida with four. Illinois and South Carolina each have a trio of athletes competing for a roster spot, while Georgia and Washington each send a pair of players. Alaska, Colorado, Kansas, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia will each have a representative at the Trials.Buck is listed as an infield/right handed pitcher on the roster and is the only one from Kansas on the list.Because of the number of teams, the girls are required to have a qualifier tournament in the Dominican Republic in March.“They are quickly putting together a team to represent the USA and Ryleigh was asked to attend this tournament,” Sheila Buck said.If she makes the cut to 18, she will play in the Pan-Am Games in July in Toronto, Canada.“This is all a new process for us and has been a very enjoyable experience so far,” Sheila said. “Ryleigh enjoys the challenge and feels blessed to have been given this great opportunity.”Sheila said she has several people who have given significant personal time to help her develop the skills and knowledge in making the transition from softball to baseball.The 2015 USA Baseball Women’s National Team will be managed by Jonathan Pollard, who led the program to the silver medal as manager at the WBSC Women’s Baseball World Cup in Miyazaki, Japan in 2014.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

Farmer charged for biting, lashing siblings

first_imgA farmer, who bit and lashed his two brothers with a piece of wood during an argument, appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on Wednesday to answer to an assault charge.Ruel HenryTwenty-year-old Ruel Henry appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan and denied the charge which stated that on September 6, 2019 at Oronoque, Port Kaituma, North West District, Region One (Barima-Waini), he unlawfully assaulted Sherwyn and Roger Henry, so as to cause them actual bodily harm.The unrepresented man, when asked by the Magistrate why he committed the act said, “They assault me first”.Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield informed the court that on September 6, 2019 the defendant and his two brothers had an argument, which resulted in a fight.The court further heard that the defendant bit Sherwyn, then armed himself with a wood and dealt both Sherwyn and Roger several lashes.The Magistrate released the farmer on self-bail and the case was adjourned to November 6 at Matthews Ridge Magistrates’ Courts.Henry was also placed on a bond to keep the peace until the hearing and conclusion of the trial.last_img read more

Without lots of genetic material to reshuffle, future generations are less able to adapt to changing environmental conditions. Now, a new genetic analysis of narwhals is turning that notion on its head: Despite low genetic diversity, these “unicorns” of the ocean seem to be doing just fine.Narwhals, medium-size whales that live in the Arctic, are known for some genetic quirks. After multiple studies uncovered low genetic diversity in several narwhal genes, a team of researchers decided to analyze the whale’s entire genome. Using DNA from the frozen liver tissue of a narwhal found near Greenland, they calculated the genetic variation of the species and estimated the population size of narwhals into the deep past.Their results reveal a profound lack of diversity across the narwhal’s genome, they report today in iScience. Compared with 14 other mammal species, narwhals were far less genetically diverse. For example, bowhead whales have twice as much variation, while pandas’ genomes are more than three times as diverse. What’s more, the team found no evidence of an inbreeding or die-off “bottleneck.” Instead, narwhal populations appear to have declined slowly starting 2 million years ago and have maintained a low genetic diversity for the past million years. Such slowly shrinking diversity has been seen in mountain gorillas and Channel Island foxes, but this time, the common culprits of inbreeding and isolation don’t appear to be to blame.

Required fields are indicated by an asterisk (*) The narwhal’s abundance—there are more than 170,000 living in the wild—may come from a population explosion driven by favorable environmental conditions 115,000 years ago. Since then, genetic diversity may simply have not had enough to time to catch up. But the researchers note that the narwhal isn’t totally out of the woods; with a range restricted to the rapidly warming Arctic, it’s unclear whether the narwhal’s uniform genome will be able to cope with ongoing climate change.last_img read more
