Emma Lamison emerging as late-season point producer for Syracuse field hockey

first_imgEmma Lamison lifted the ball into the air and continued to juggle it with her stick above the turf. A Duke defender tripped Lamison, leading to a SU penalty corner. Following her insertion, Lamison hugged the back post and tapped in a rebound goal.Emma Lamison is improving her play at the right time for No. 2 Syracuse (12-1, 4-1 Atlantic Coast). In her last three games, the senior forward recorded 10 points on three goals and four assists, doubling her point total on the season. She was named the ACC offensive player of the week for her performances in the team’s last two games.Lamison led Northeastern in scoring her sophomore year with 26 points before transferring to Syracuse. But a year ago, she finished the season with 22 points and 37 shots. Only 13 games into this season, she has tallied 20 points and 33 shots. Her four assists this weekend matched her 2015 total.“Last year, I obviously dribbled a lot and tried to get the perfect shot,” Lamison said. “This year I really focused on trying to just hit it at the top of the circle.”But it is not just the statistics that show how Lamison is stepping up her game in her second season at Syracuse.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter not starting the season as the team’s inserter on penalty corners, Lamison earned her way to the top spot. She was more consistent with her hit speed and accuracy than the other two players battling for the position — Nijsje Venrooy and Jennifer Bleakney — head coach Ange Bradley said.Lamison has played a key role in a SU corner attack that has scored six goals on penalty corners in the last two games.“She’s always down the other end working on it,” Bradley said. “She’s been patient through the process and growing at a skill she needed to get better at.”For many players, it is either their breakaway speed or dominating size that defines their style of play. For Lamison, it’s her crafty stick handling.Against then-No. 2 Duke on Friday, Lamison showed special technical skills as she evaded Duke defenders on several occasions. Cornered by three defenders, Lamison spun around, split the defenders with a swift move from right to left and continued down the field with the ball.Lamison also keeps good positioning in the front line. She notched two rebound goals against Duke.“We all just have our specific position areas we gotta be in,” Lamison said. “You just hope the ball comes to you and you get it in when you get the chance.”Lamison has three two-goal games on the year. One of them came against then-No. 11 Wake Forest on Sept. 18. Just two minutes into the game, she scooped up a bouncing ball in front of the net, possessed it, then carefully placed it in the back left corner of the net. Later on, Lamison raced to a loose ball and finished with a reverse goal to give Syracuse an early two-goal advantage.Lamison started the season slow. She struggled to tally points. She was stuck in the back line on penalty corners.But now she is the lead inserter for a powerful Syracuse penalty corner attack. She leads the team in points over the last three games and is emerging as a top offensive threat for the Orange as the regular season winds down.

NTSB Releases Report on Copter Crash that Killed Chris Cline, Six Others

first_imgThe National Transportation Safety Board has released its preliminary report on the helicopter crash that killed seven people earlier this month, including billionaire and North Palm Beach resident Chris Cline.The copter crashed into the Atlantic Ocean on July 4 near Big Grand Cay, Abaco, Bahamas, just one minute after takeoff. Cline’s daughter, Kameron, and her friend, Brittney Layne Searson, also died in the crash. They graduated from the Benjamin School in 2015 and were attending college together at Louisiana State University.According to the NTSB, the helicopter was flying from Walker’s Cay Airport to Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport to obtain medical treatment for two passengers. It originally departed from Palm Beach International Airport and landed at Big Grand Cay sometime between 1:30 and 1:45 a.m.After passengers boarded at Big Grand Cay, the aircraft lifted again. A witness reports seeing it climb out about 30 to 40 feet and accelerate “while in a nose-down attitude.”A second witness, who was located about 1.6 nautical miles southwest of where the accident occurred, says he saw the helicopter lift to about 40 to 50 feet high, and then noticed blue and white lights spinning to the left between rotations, while the copter descended. He believes it rotated to the left three or four times. That witness then heard a “whoosh whoosh whoosh” sound, lost sight of the aircraft, and heard it crash into the ocean, the NTSB report says.After reporting the incident to the island’s “caregiver,” the witness went on his boat around 2:05 a.m. and used spotlights to begin searching the area where he thought the helicopter had crashed, but did not find anything.The NTSB says the Federal Aviation Administration issued an alert notice for the overdue flight on July 4 at about 3:21 p.m. Within 90 minutes, residents spotted the helicopter in 16 feet of water about 1.2 nautical miles north-northeast of where it had departed.The flight and data recorders are still being analyzed.last_img read more
