Hagglund nears record marks as USC’s leader

first_imgBut then, Natalie Hagglund is no stranger to riding waves.Growing up in Encinitas, Calif., Hagglund has been paddling out and catching waves off the California coast almost all of her life. Though she surfed competitively — Hagglund won a county competition in middle school and was a member of the La Costa Canyon High School team — she never lost the peaceful sensation of being out on the board, alone with the waves. This freedom from anxiety has carried both her and her team through tight situations throughout her career.“I think competing in surfing was big for me and my calmness,” Hagglund said of her relaxing presence on the court. “It kind of triggers your inner self. It’s a single sport so you have to be able to bring calmness to yourself.”Her teammates have certainly noticed her presence on the court, and look to her often in high-pressure situations and during times when things appear bleak.“I know that every time when I’m on the court and she’s on the court, I’ll look back at her first after somebody scores,” senior middle blocker Alexis Olgard said. “She’s the focal point of our team, the one who I put my trust in. She’s incredible to play with. She brings energy, she brings intensity.”USC head coach Mick Haley appreciates Hagglund’s presence and her ability to be the glue of the team both on and off the court.“We have a catalyst in Hagglund,” Haley said. “She’s the one that unifies everyone. We have a lot of people who have bought into that and follow her in that regard. She directs the energy in practice and our gym culture is what it is because Natalie brings it every day.”Her ability to keep her cool yet still bring an intensity to the court seem at odds with one another, but Hagglund has found a special balance that allows them to work together for the good of the team. Of course, she’s been doing this volleyball thing for quite a while, too.Fittingly, Hagglund started her career on the sand, becoming a state beach champion in the U-14 division in 2005. She went on to win a national championship in Junior Olympics beach volleyball in the U-16 division. Her indoor club team, the Encinitas Wave, also won a Junior Olympics championship in the U-16 division. Even before high school, success seemed to follow Hagglund wherever she went.Once she did reach the prep ranks, she became a decorated star on the court. She earned first-team All-CIF San Diego Section honors in 2007, and by her senior year had earned first team All-American honors. Upon graduating, she was ranked as the nation’s top libero by Prep Volleyball. Despite her commitments to the school volleyball and surf teams, she was also able to continue her sand career throughout high school, and in 2009 was part of the youngest team ever to qualify for the AVP Manhattan Beach Open.The key to her success? Hagglund is unrivaled in her desire to compete, a desire that has given her many opportunities to win titles and overcome stressful games.“I’ve been competitive my whole life, and I’ve been playing volleyball and competing in volleyball forever,” Hagglund said. “I’ve gotten to play with the USA national team and have gotten to go to Peru where there are 15,000 people screaming at you, so I’ve learned to play through certain adversities.”Hagglund’s college career seemed destined for greatness from the beginning, as she collected nine digs and one assist in her collegiate debut against Loyola Marymount, a match the Women of Troy swept. She would go on to start every game that season as USC’s starting libero, and was given a spot on the Pac-10 All-Freshman Team.A sophomore slump was not in the cards for Hagglund, as she became the first USC libero ever to be named to the AVCA All-America first team. Not surprisingly, she was also named Pac-12 Conference Libero of the Year.Coming off of a near-perfect season, Hagglund remarkably was able to improve upon her success in her junior year. Her 613 digs were good enough to put her third all-time on USC’s single season list, and she moved into second all-time at USC in career digs. Once again she received a selection to the AVCA All-America first team, and was named Pac-12 Libero of the Year.Though it’s clear to see accolades have never eluded her, Hagglund is still searching for the one thing that eludes her on the court. When asked what the perfect ending to her USC career would be, there was no hesitation: She wants to win a national championship.“I’ve been thinking about it since my freshman year,” she said. “I’ve been to the Final Four my freshman and sophomore year and just missed it last year, so winning with this group of girls would be the most amazing finish. For me it has nothing to do with me ending with my best career finish statistically or awards. Honestly I just want that ring; I want to be able to wear that championship hat with pride at the beach. I want that memory with these girls, to accomplish something that great with my favorite people.”She is certainly off to a great start this season, leading USC to a 14-1 start, including a 4-0 Pac-12 record. If things continue as they have been for the Women of Troy, Hagglund might yet be able to attain that final goal, a championship ring that would look awfully good gleaming in the light as she paddles out into the sunset of her career. Follow Kurt on Twitter @legen_daryKurt Not even halfway through her senior season, Natalie Hagglund is already fast approaching USC’s all-time women’s volleyball records. As the starting libero for the Women of Troy for four seasons, she has been the constant as the team has gone through waves of success and disappointment.Team player · Senior libero Natalie Hagglund’s teammates said she acts as a calming presence, even in tense moments on the court. – Ralf Cheung | Daily Trojanlast_img read more

3 takeaways from Syracuse men’s lacrosse media day

first_imgSyracuse head coach John Desko talked about the upcoming season at SU’s media day on Monday. The Orange went 13-3 overall and 2-2 in conference play last season, making a run to the NCAA quarterfinals where it lost to Johns Hopkins, 16-15. In addition to losing two of its top three offensive players in Randy Staats and Kevin Rice, SU lost five other starters. That includes its whole first-line midfield — Hakeem Lecky, Henry Schoonmaker and Nicky Galasso — defender Sean Young and goalie Bobby Wardwell. Syracuse starts its regular season on Feb. 13 in the Carrier Dome against Siena at 1 p.m.Here are three takeaways from Desko’s press conference.Warren Hill will be Syracuse’s starting goalieAdvertisementThis is placeholder textHill beat out junior Evan Molloy for the starting goalie job, Desko said on Monday. After the Orange’s alumni game on Oct. 10, Desko said the goalie competition was wide open as SU looked for a replacement for Wardwell. Hill, a senior, started in the alumni game and Molloy subbed in for him later. Prior to the 2015 season, Hill, transferred from Onondaga Community College. He played in just six games as a junior last year for a total of 86:42 while making 20 saves and allowing 19 goals. Desko said Hill had to adjust to the Division-I level last season, which he’s now ready for. He had to learn how to handle better shooters, while also being the verbal “quarterback” on the defensive end, Desko said. Hill also played for the Iroquois Nationals in the World Indoor Lacrosse Championships, which were played in Syracuse in Septempber.“Warren has come in and really kind of taken over,” Desko said. “He’s a different goalie than he was a year ago so we’re excited about his play.”“Coming out of the fall, Warren’s the starter. Evan did a good job. I think going into the fall, we thought we had a pretty good battle going on,” Desko said, “… but right now, Warren has the edge.”Freshman defender Nick Mellen can defend smaller, quicker attacksDesko cited Nick Mellen right away when asked which freshmen had a chance to contribute from the start of the season. Mellen attended nearby West Genesee (New York) High School and was ranked as the ninth best recruit in the country by Inside Lacrosse. He started for SU in the alumni game alongside returning defenders Brandon Mullins and Jay McDermott.Though Mellen is just 5 feet 9 inches and 177 pounds, Desko said he has good footwork that allows him to stick with faster, smaller attacks. Last year, North Carolina’s Jimmy Bitter (5-9, 175 pounds) and Joey Sankey (5-5, 160), Notre Dame’s Matt Kavanaugh (5-8, 170), as well as Syracuse’s Kevin Rice (5-10, 177) and Dylan Donahue  (5-9, 173) gave defenses problems. But Mellen has the ability to stick with smaller, quick players.“Nick Mellen has done a really good job coming in. Great feet, just a very good athlete. Really quick,” Desko said. “… A lot of Division-I defensemen are 6-1 (through 6-4) and had a little problem covering some of these smaller guys. Nick is probably 5-10-ish with great feet to match players like that.”Syracuse has flexibility at faceoff XAfter a procedure ended his chance of playing a full fall season, face-off specialist Ben Williams is now “full go,” Desko said on Monday. Last season Williams won 67.4 percent of the faceoffs, an improvement over Chris Daddio, who had taken faceoffs for SU in the four seasons prior. Daddio won just 48.7 percent of the faceoffs he took in his four years with the Orange.Cal Paduda, who worked at the faceoff X while Williams recovered, is “right behind” him, Desko said. Williams worked on shooting on the run during the offseason so he could potentially stay on the field during the run of play. Last season, Williams took 380 of SU’s 441 faceoffs. Paduda, though, could give the junior face-off specialist a rest from the physically grueling position.“We’re toying with using Ben a little bit more offensively and defensively because he isn’t just that traditional face-off guy that doesn’t run very well, is not athletic,” Desko said. “Ben is very athletic, he’s got good speed. He can shoot the ball on the run. He’s been working on that quite a bit in the offseason.”“… Maybe keep their guy on the field a little bit if he wins the faceoff offensively … We think we have a nice 1-2 punch there and it gives us the ability, like I said, to do some other things that maybe other teams don’t do with their face-off guys.”Williams scored in the first two games against Siena and Cornell last season and then scored against Duke in the Carrier Dome. He also assisted on a goal against the Big Red.

Kayla Treanor’s draw control dominance creates chances for Syracuse offense

first_imgPractice had ended in the Carrier Dome and most of Syracuse’s players filed off the field, putting on their sneakers and talking about weekend plans and finals. But the conversations were pierced by a whistle.Two days before Syracuse concluded the regular season against Louisville in late April, Kayla Treanor, the nation’s best on the draw, prepped to face the nation’s second best in UofL specialist Kaylin Morissette.Treanor and a few members of SU’s draw team stood at the circle in the empty Dome. The senior attack pressed her white stick, the one she only uses for draws, against the stick of freshman Julie Cross. Orange head coach Gary Gait blew his whistle, the sticks twisted and the ball flew high. The 5-foot-9 Treanor extended her right arm, used her body to shield Cross’ 6-foot-1 frame and snatched the ball away.Five, 10, 20 minutes passed. The whistle blew again and again. She wouldn’t be finished until dark, SU assistant coach Michelle Tumolo joked.Two days later, Treanor led Syracuse to a 16-9 draw advantage over Louisville in the 13-10 win. The Orange hasn’t lost in the draw circle in one month and it played a key role in several of SU’s latest wins. The draw became crucial this past Saturday against Stony Brook when a surprise faceguard of Treanor coupled with an unfamiliar zone nearly sent the Orange home early.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe draw controls led to more chances, more looks at the zone and No. 4 seed Syracuse (18-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) finally figured out the defense, sneaking past the Seawolves with a 7-6 win. SU next plays Southern California (20-0, 9-0 Mountain Pacific Sports) in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament in the Carrier Dome on Saturday at 3 p.m.“(The draw) is Kayla Treanor at 100 percent,” Gait said after beating SBU. “They faceguarded her, shut her off and we decided to bring her out. But (the draw) got us back in the game. By her getting the ball, it was huge.”Syracuse commanded an 11-4 draw advantage over the Seawolves. SBU head coach Joe Spallina put his hands on his head, turned to his assistants and called Treanor “a magician” after she won her sixth straight.Treanor wins draws by flicking it up to herself or directing the ball to an area or teammate. The last time Treanor took draws consistently was in high school, but she was thrust into this role as a senior since draw specialist Kailah Kempney graduated after last season.She responded by breaking Kempney’s single-season school record for draw controls (203). She ranks first nationally in total draw controls and draws per game.“Her father always says she won the gene pool lottery,” Janice Treanor, her mother, said. “To be 5-foot-9 and muscular gives her an advantage over a lot of girls.”Only one draw specialist left in the tournament is as tall as Treanor: USC’s 5-foot-10 Michaela Michael, who will face SU in the quarterfinals.Southern California has the best defense in the nation. Stony Brook was the second best. So if the Seawolves were any indication, the lockdown defense will slow Syracuse’s offense and place a heightened importance on having more chances to find holes.“We needed to come up with (more draws),” Treanor said after beating Stony Brook, “so we could get more possessions than they did.”The draw has kept Syracuse in many games this season, even though the Orange wasn’t able to close. In regular season losses to top teams Florida and Maryland, Syracuse won 29-of-48 draws. In the ACC tournament final, despite having fewer groundballs and more than double as many turnovers, Syracuse forced No. 1 seed North Carolina to overtime before losing 15-14. The Orange held a 20-10 advantage in the draw circle and Treanor won the only extra-period draw.The difference now, in games like Stony Brook, is that secondary scoring options are stepping up to make good on the extra chances Treanor is earning at the circle.

Men’s basketball: Ethan Happ records second triple-double of season as Wisconsin rolls past Northwestern 62–46

first_imgSenior center Ethan Happ registered his second triple-double of the season while sophomore guards Brad Davison and D’Mitrik Trice went a combined 7-12 from beyond the arc as the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team (14-6, 6-3 Big Ten) defeated the Northwestern Wildcats (12-8, 3-6) 62–46 Saturday afternoon at the Kohl Center.Midway through the second half, Happ was unaware he was just one rebound shy of a triple-double.“The guys on the bench … Mike Ballard said give me one more rebound, and I was like ‘what are you talking about?’” Happ said. “He usually doesn’t talk to me during games.”But when a packed Kohl Center crowd burst into cheers following Happ’s offensive rebound with 6:54 to go in the second half, Happ knew what he had just accomplished.Happ finished the game with 13 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists, and though it was not one of his finest offensive performances, the senior still found a way to fill up the stat sheet and guide his team to victory as he has done all season.Men’s basketball: Badgers look to supporting cast for production ahead of Saturday showdown with NorthwesternA season-low nine points for Ethan Happ versus Illinois Wednesday may worry the Badger faithful, but a victory headlined by Read…Davison and Trice each posted 18 points to lead all scorers. The two sharpshooters came out firing, as Wisconsin went 6-10 on three-pointers in the first half.Northwestern managed a two-point lead late in the first half, but after a Brevin Pritzl three-pointer at the 5:30 mark put the Badgers up by one, Wisconsin went on a 19-2 run through the beginning of the second half.After Pritzl’s three, the Wildcats were ice-cold to close the half, making just one of their final eight shots from the field, while Wisconsin made six of their final seven to go up 34–24 at the break.A Nate Reuvers and-one with 16:51 remaining in the second half put Wisconsin up 39–24 to close the run. Wisconsin led by double digits for the remainder of the afternoon.But Northwestern Head Coach Chris Collins did not blame his team’s defense for the loss.“We did not lose because of our defense,” Collins said. “We lost because they defended us well and we could not score.”Wisconsin held Northwestern to 30 percent shooting — including an abysmal 23 percent in the second half — and forced 13 turnovers. The Wildcats could not get into a rhythm on the offensive end for the entire second half.Despite cold night from Ethan Happ, Wisconsin holds on late to defeat IllinoisThe Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball team (13-6, 5-3 Big Ten) held on late to defeat the Illinois Fighting Illini (5-14, Read…Redshirt junior Vic Law — the Wildcats leading scorer entering Saturday with 16.3 points per game — scored just six points on 2-11 shooting. Redshirt sophomore Aaron Falzon scored just six points fresh off a career performance against Indiana in which he netted a career-high six three-pointers.The Wildcats had open looks throughout the game, but they weren’t falling Saturday. In contrast, the Badgers knocked down their open looks from the perimeter thanks to Happ’s ability to attract attention inside.Happ now has two of UW’s three triple-doubles in school history. His first came in a season-opening win over Coppin State Nov. 6 when he put up a similar line of 10 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists. Josh Gasser is the only other Badger with a triple-double. His also came against Northwestern when he dropped 10 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in a 78–46 win eight years ago.Up next for Wisconsin is a trip to Nebraska, where they’ll play the Cornhuskers Tuesday and look to extend their win streak to four games.last_img read more
