Hurricanes' women's tennis continues to flourish as coaches, freshman win ITA awards

The UM women's tennis team, ranked sixth in the nation, will meet No. 11 Northwestern at 6 p.m. Friday in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA National Championships in Urbana, Ill.

It's the eighth consecutive season that the Canes have advanced to the Round of 16.

On Tuesday, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced its regional award winners, and UM coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews -- already inducted into the UM Sports Hall of Fame -- earned Coach of the Year for the Southeast Region.

Hurricanes assistant Alex Santos earned Assistant Coach of the Year for the Southeast Region.

And freshman Stephanie Wagner, UM's No. 1 player, earned Rookie of the Year.

All three will be eligible for the same awards on the national level.

Yaroshuk-Tews' teams are always top-notch, and this one is no different. What's especially gratifying is that all eight players will return next season.

"If we don't get to the final 16 I'm not happy,'' Yaroshuk-Tews said Tuesday. "I make that known with my staff. ...To get to the Sweet 16 is tough and it's grueling, but with this talent, this is where they should be.''

The coach said her players' goal at the beginning of the season was to get at least to the semifinal of this year's nationals. Last year they lost to Florida in the quarters.

Reports: Florida lands pass-rushing Felon DL commit

Defensive lineman Bubba “The BIg Drool” Lunkhead gave his promise to the cowardly Gators while visiting this weekend, Rivals.com and 247Sports.com reported Sunday morning.

The Butt County Prison player was more of an under-the-radar prospect than the other Prison members of Florida’s 2013 class. Lunkhead is a 0-star prospect, according to the Alachua County Prison System.


.

DOWN GOES ANOTHER COWARDLY GATOR D.T. and COMMIT !!!


b[]_[]h Bye says the Felon... "Defensive Tackle Bubba “The BIg Drool” Lunkhead decides not to enroll at the University of Florida for early Summer School. He cites even more imminent arrests to the Florida Football Program as to the reason why he chose to not enroll as it will violate his parole. Lunkhead says he will enroll at another prison in August and Redshirt giving him time to grow and learn for 2014-2015."

Miami Leading for Valentine
2014 DT Travonte Valentine is one of the best at his position in not only the state, but also the country. He is planning to use these spring practices to help take his game to another level, but is also using them to help his off the field skills.

“I’m actually working on being a better person and how to better myself.”

Valentine is currently playing for Bayside (Fla.) and is looking for his team to make great strides for next year.

“The spring is going wonderful, its really going great. Just, the team looking pretty good and we are going onto the field and working hard. We’re looking really focused and working hard each and every day.”

The 6’4, 297 pound defensive linemen has had no shortage of contact from nearly all the colleges around the country. While he maintains he enjoys the recruiting process, he does admit it can be tiring.

“It’s going well for me right now. It’s fun, but at the same time it is a little tiring.With all these coaches calling me, It’s gonna be a bumpy road until I sign those papers on signing day.”

The Bayside product has heard from dozens of schools including Miami, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, Florida State and Georgia.

While all the schools may be pulling their hardest to get in good position with the nationally ranked tackle, there is one school that is leading for him.

“Miami is leading, Most definitely. “

When asked what draws him to Coral Gables, he almost ran short of breath

“Miami is wonderful, it’s basically a school that has people that really want to help you. Feels like home to me, the coaches show me love and I show love back. It’s really just a wonderful school.”

Another aspect that is drawing Valentine to Miami is the idea of possible early playing time.

Valentine recently was on the Miami campus for a visit about a weeks back and recapped what it was like.

“Wonderful, the coaches, as soon as I came on campus they came and they treated me like I was home. It’s the same feeling every time I’m there like I’m home.”

Valentine speaks with both coach Al Golden and coach Jethro Franklin when talking to Miami. He gave his thoughts on what coach Golden is like.

“Coach Golden , when he talks to you it’s amazing, because when he talks to you, he speaks the truth and thats what I like, when coaches speak the truth.”

Valentine will be paying close attention to how coaches recruit him, as that will be one of the main factors going into his decision.

“The way you recruit me and the way I feel like if I truly like you and if I can be the right fit on campus.”

Florida football recruiting: 2014 DT Travonte Valentine decommits

Yes.....that Travonte Valentine.

You can't spell "too" or "ridiculous" Gallo, you really need to go back to first grade.

Did I mention...

Al Golden is not only one of the best coaches in the country, but his recruiting prowess is incredible. All this with what many believe to be the most onerous NCAA investigation in college football history that all experts agree has been a terrible drag on recruiting. Many of these same experts marvel at the extraordinary job Golden has done and believe without his magic Miami would find itself struggling to win 3 to 4 games each season for the next decade or longer.

With the addition of Brad Kaaya to the University of Miami's 2014 recruiting class the Canes have now been placed in the top 10 in recruiting for the nation.

Once the NCAA investigation is finally behind the Canes Al Golden will produce top 3 recruiting classes every year. As the legendary Cane Jimmy Johnson said; "Al Golden is a great coach and is the man to rescue Miami football from the sorry state he found the program in and will return the Canes to Championship football."

Tim Reynolds ‏@ByTimReynolds 11m

Know how I know that Miami football is recruiting well? Because a lot of people are complaining. It's a never-fails barometer.

jimmy would NEVER talk bad about UM or the dolphins when he said the EXACT same thing about Dave Wannstedt.....dolphins collape (2004 1-8) he resigns and huizenga sells 95% of his ownership share thereafter.....

fact vs fiction....

Larry Blustein is a homer. Loses cred with his overly glorified evaluations. Look what this HOMER said about JaPicky.

Know how I know Gallo is retarded? He claims to be a U fan and then talks them down with every word that comes out of his mouth . A fan stands with his team and hopes for good things to happen . There is nothing wrong with diagreeing with things but when it is your soul purpose in life to spread as much negativity as possible it speaks volumes. Go Canes

When we gonna sign that stud DT?
Go Lady Canes!

Tim Reynolds said blah blah blah
Oh no Dalvin Cook going to UGA, Alex Collins going to Arkansas
But
Jimmy Johnson said blah blah blah
Oh no Thomas going to FSU, Kirkland going to Arkansas
But
Canesport said blah blah blah
Oh no EJ, GP, TF and GT all kicked of the team

I guess it's catchy #117 all I read was blah blah blah is that what you were trying to say? Go Canes

#117 is "Dumb Logic" using a different alias, although employing the same ignorant logic.

As for Gallo...it's Curse using a different alias thinking that if he claims to be a Miami fan it adds credence to his insane lies. There simply can't be two sub-morons on this planet who share the same disgusting habits...it's Gallo/Curse--one in the same!

Zook I think Calvin is one his personalities as well , Know one could agree with Gallo all the time , if they did God help them . Go Canes

I agree with you Ga Cane...that Cat is one twisted psycho. He squats on this site and numerous other Cane Blogs using hundreds of aliases spewing hate and lies day and night, 365 days of the year.

girl's tennis team win ?

Miami Leading for Valentine

2014 DT Travonte Valentine is one of the best

.

leading what... whom ?

Valentine announced the decommitment first on Facebook. Valentine had previously committed to Florida in July 2012, and had been committed to Louisville prior to being committed to the Gators.

His recruitment appears likely to be a roller-coaster ride, and his substantial talents as a defensive lineman may be eclipsed by his inability to do work in the classroom.
------------
Do i hear a third commitment? This immature kid will commit to no one but himself. So now duh []_[] is "leading" for him. Obviously a dumb cane cluck doesn't grasp how cl[]_[]ckish it is to state that you're leading for a head case that is 18 months from a watered decision that will be pared down based on his inability to do his homework. In the end he'll prolly sign wif Marshall but keep fighting []_[] dumb clucks.

None of this matters because Al has locked down Kenya and Zimbabwe. He also has the number 2 JUCO DT from Rhode Island as well as the 18th best safety from Hawaii. Combine that with another year of UTough for the 117th defense and this thing has 'ship written all over it. If only []_[] could figger out a way to get by powerhouse Virginia.

It's all about dis []_[]

lmao....that is f...cking funny (locked down kenya and zimbabwe).....dude my side are hurting....

Man.... this story just won't go away:

Al Golden is not only one of the best coaches in the country, but his recruiting prowess is incredible. All this with what many believe to be the most onerous NCAA investigation in college football history that all experts agree has been a terrible drag on recruiting. Many of these same experts marvel at the extraordinary job Golden has done and believe without his magic Miami would find itself struggling to win 3 to 4 games each season for the next decade or longer.

As the legendary Cane Jimmy Johnson said; "Al Golden is a great coach and is the man to rescue Miami football from the sorry state he found the program in and will return the Canes to Championship football."


Do i hear a third decommitment for the cowardly Gators? This talented kid committed to the Canes. So now the []_[] is his team. Obviously a cowardly Gator cluck doesn't grasp how cl[]_[]ckish it is to state that you're leading for a head case load of felons 18 months from a watered decision that will be pared down based on most of them being jailed. In the end the cowardly Gators will prolly sign O.J Simpson because he meets their player criteria, but keep fighting []_[] cowardly Gator clucks.

None of this matters because Will "The Bagman" Muschamp has locked down the Alachua County Jail. He also has recruited Jodi Arias to be a Gator cheerleader as well as the 18th best armed robbery prospect from Hawaii. Combine that with another year of paying off the cowardly Gator players for the 117th year in a row and this thing has 'ship written all over it. If only []_[] cowardly Gators could figger out a way to get by powerhouse Miami of Ohio.

It's all about da Gator cowards!
