Pioneer Press girls volleyball preview: Central Suburban South


Evanston players teach volleyball skills to younger kids in the district, and they also volunteer at Girls Play Sports, a nonprofit that teaches sports to girls in fourth through eighth grade.

Full article available. First here as indicated.

Save the date: New Trier vs. Niles West, Sept. 24 (in Skokie) and Oct. 11 (in Winnetka). The Trevians and the Wolves are the likely contenders in the CSL South. Last year the teams split during the regular season, as the Wolves handed the Trevians their only conference defeat. The Wolves also lost to Niles North, though, and missed out on their first conference title. Senior libero Sloan Tomczak leads Niles West’s defense. She had 324 digs and 22 aces a year ago. ‘She’s probably the best libero we have had in a long time,’ Roth said. The Trevians went 33-6 last year and return plenty of players with varsity experience. Maddie McGregor (Penn) and Taite Ryan (Dartmouth) are college-bound players. Hsieh said the talent is as strong as 2014, when New Trier made a state appearance.

Many things are taking place:

Key 5G spectrum to hit auction block in November

The Australian Communications and Media (ACMA) authority expects to begin in November the auction of spectrum that will play a key role in the initial wave of wireless services based on the next-generation 5G standard.

The ACMA is preparing to auction off 125MHz of spectrum in the 3.6GHz band. The auction will be offered in 350 lots across 14 regions.

The regulator revealed today that the spectrum would have a reserve price of $0.08/MHz/pop for spectrum in metro areas (excluding Perth lower lots, which will have a starting price of $0.053/MHz/pop). Regional spectrum will start at $0.03/MHz/pop. (The $/MHz/pop pricing is the base price multiplied by bandwidth in MHz in a geographic area, multiplied by the area’s population.)

Twenty-five years later, is Texas still a ‘shining light’ for Title IX, women’s college athletics?

Monday is the 25th anniversary of one of the most significant events in women’s college athletics history ‘ the settlement of a Title IX lawsuit in which the University of Texas agreed to add three women’s programs.

The settlement, signed late at night on July 16, 1993 by the lonely glow provided by a Coke machine, triggered a shock wave, then an explosion across women’s athletics; what started at Texas did indeed change that world.

Twenty-five years later, schools around the country are keeping their eyes upon Texas for a far different reason ‘ the recent reorganization and reshuffling of the athletic department, which included the official folding in of the UT women’s department into one now headed by new athletic director Chris Del Conte with two new lieutenants, both male.
