first_imgAfter battling UW-Milwaukee this past Sunday, the UW-Madison women’s soccer team is now sitting on its first shutout of the season. With another match right around the corner, the Badgers, now holding a 5-1-1 record, welcome UW Green Bay to the McClimon Soccer Complex this Wednesday at 7 p.m. Their win against in-state rival, Milwaukee, has set the tone for this week: Win Wisconsin.Sunday’s game showed the tight defense that the team has focused on, only allowing Milwaukee one shot for the entirety of the game. Meanwhile, the Badgers had a total of 17 shots, eight of them being on goal.“We were looking to be a little bit cleaner in our possession and our attack end,” head coach Paula Wilkins said. “It got a little messy in the end, but the biggest excitement was that we were able to get a shutout.”It was just what the team needed to move forward as it prepares to face UW Green Bay.Redshirt junior Kodee Williams, who scored the first goal Sunday against Milwaukee, was pleased with the team’s overall performance.“Looking ahead to our game on Wednesday, we just wanted to build on what we had this past game and in our previous games,” Williams said. “I think we have stepped it up a lot from our Vanderbilt game.”After Sunday’s game, freshman Rose Lavelle earned Big Ten Co-Freshman of the Week honors. Lavelle has started in all seven games this season. She assisted on two of the three goals scored in the win against Milwaukee on Sunday. Lavelle is currently third in total points (12) and is tied for second with sophomore Kinley McNicoll in goals (3).With another home game right around the corner, the Badgers prepare to take on UW-Green Bay. Although the Green Bay Phoenixes are not as big of a rival as the Milwaukee Panthers, the possibility of sweeping the state is motivation enough.“We got two wins against Marquette and now against Milwaukee,” Lavelle said. “Now we want to win Wisconsin and beat Green Bay as well.”In her six seasons with the Badgers, Wilkins has yet to steal all three wins over their in-state Division I rivals. Wisconsin took a step in the right direction after defeating Milwaukee, but it all comes down to tomorrow’s match against UW-Green Bay.With three wins, two loses and three ties, the Phoenixes have not been as consistent as the Badgers this season. Even so, Williams and the rest of the team are still looking at this like any other game.“We have to respect every opponent,” Williams said. “It’s just another game that we know we are going to have to fight hard in. We know that we have to keep playing hard until the game is done.”last_img

first_imgWhen Reed Kamyszek and Joseph Whelan line up for a race, it’s usually outside. The two cross country runners have the liberty of dictating their own pace as they navigate the distance race’s 8-km course.But this weekend, at the Valentine Invitational in Boston, Kamyszek and Whelan will have to sprint.As members of the indoor track and field team, the two distance runners will compete in the 3K race. It’s a distance much shorter than they’re used to, but one they are ready for as they make the transition from cross country, to the indoor and ultimately outdoor season.The 3K is a 3,000-meter race slightly shorter than two miles. For the two distance runners, though, it’s a relative sprint forcing them to utilize a different kind of speed and strategy.“Sometimes in the 5K you have people sitting around waiting, but the 3K is right out the door,” Kamyszek said, “and once a mile hits, you either have to hold on or, if you have something left in the tank, you burn it up through the last three laps.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSome indoor 3Ks are run in 10 laps on 300-meter courses. The course at the Track and Tennis Center at Boston University is 200 meters, making the race 15 laps. Some runners like to divide the race up into three parts of five laps each, or two parts of eight and seven laps, Kamyszek said.In easing the transition from the outdoor terrain of cross country to the banked course of indoor track, he likes to split the race in half.“I like to look at it in the mile way,” Kamyszek said. “Once you get done with eight (laps), then from there you kind of visualize, ‘I only have a full mile to go, but not quite,’ and you just got to keep pushing at that point.”While Kamyszek relies on some simple math and speed to get him through the race, Whelan relies on his experience.Unlike Kamyszek, who will be running in his first 3K of the season this weekend, Whelan ran the 3K at the Penn State Invitational on Jan. 25, and finished 10th in 8:18.08.Whelan, also a fourth-place finisher at the Big East cross country championship in October, knows how to bring his game in indoors.“Having the shorter distances is just something you have to get used to, and the only way you get better at it is by doing it a bunch,” Whelan said. “Just being a little older and knowing how to handle each meet helps a lot.”Head coach Chris Fox is looking for a sharper distance performance than the one he saw at the Penn State Invitational, he said. But ahead of the Big East Indoor Championships next weekend, Fox expects “good things” from Kamyszek and Whelan in this final tune-up.Fox is looking for Kamyszek to run any time under 8:20 while the runner is aiming for any time below 8:16.Said Kamyszek: “It’s hard to pin it down, but whatever people open up the race at, I am probably going to follow them.” Facebook Twitter Google+ Commentscenter_img Published on February 7, 2013 at 12:32 am Contact Bryan: bwrubin@syr.edulast_img
