first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Nua (Palmdale), AVC’s middle blocker, recently set a single-match record for kills with 28. She has 276 kills this season and is second all-time at AVC in that category with 469. “I always thought I’d play (at a four-year school), but only if a coach recruited me,” Bull said. “I wasn’t going to pursue it.” Sophomore middle blocker TaMesha Jefferson (Lancaster) is being recruited by Cal State Dominguez Hills. All three have helped lead the third-place Marauders (11-5, 7-3 in Foothill League) to one of their best seasons in years. AVC has a chance to bolster its long shot odds of landing an at-large playoff berth when it plays host to first-place San Bernardino Valley tonight at 5. The Marauders conclude their regular season at home against Chaffey of Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday at 5. “They’ve helped each other,” AVC coach Jane Cwayna said. “Tiffany sets them up and Jennie kills them.” LANCASTER – At the start of the season, Antelope Valley College sophomore volleyball standouts Tiffany Bull and Jennie Nua weren’t expressing much interest in playing at four-year schools. But both are having the type of season that have fueled scholarship ambitions. “That’s what helped me decide,” Nua said. Bull, a setter who helped lead Littlerock High to its first Golden League title in 2004, has already set a new AVC all-time record for assists. She has 1,419 with two remaining matches. Both players have been contacted by several out-of-state schools. Bull, who plans to major in public relations or communications, has been contacted by a Montana State Northern coach, and said she’s interested in playing for its Div. I program if scholarship money is offered. Nua said CS Northridge is the state’s only school that offers the deaf studies major she plans to pursue. She said her preference is to attend an in-state four-year school. All-conference: AVC was represented by four players on the All-Foothill Conference women’s soccer team. Sophomore defender Jillian Janosky (Palmdale) was a first-team selection for a second consecutive season. Freshman striker/midfielder Amber Solis (Littlerock), who led the team with eight goals, was also a first-team selection. Freshman defender Ericka Mendoza (Palmdale) and freshman striker Katie Tague (Palmdale) were second-team selections. State-bound: Jose Navarro (Antelope Valley) and Jelani Carter (Palmdale) placed 74th and 76th at the Nov. 4 men’s and women’s Southern California championships in San Diego. Both advance to the Nov. 19 state meet in Fresno. Gideon Rubin, (818) 713-3607 [email protected] 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgThe nationwide movement that is inspiring and empowering all South Africans into active citizenship, received another boost today.        Brand South Africa, under the #PlayYourPart programme, in partnership with IQbusiness, launched the #FlyYourFlag initiative at the IQbusiness annual Growth Conference on Tuesday, 9 October 2018 which was attended by 300 business, government and civil leaders.“We are extremely proud to be part of the #FlyYourFlag initiative that IQbusiness has proposed. The inspiring display of patriotism leading up to and during the 2010 World Cup, where everyone identified with the flag and wanted to be seen displaying the flag, infused a level of social cohesion that the country had not seen before. As proud South Africans, we need to recapture the spirit and pride of our rainbow nation and #FlyYourFlag” says Thembi Kunene-Msimang, CEO of Brand South Africa.The IQbusiness Growth Conference features exceptional thought leaders who provide practical advice on how to drive collective responsibility and participation in our country’s future.In his closing address, Adam Craker – the IQbusiness CEO – challenged all companies to reignite their South African pride by committing to flying a South African flag outside of all their branches, offices and other premises.        “We are challenging business, government and civil society to show their commitment to the future of this country by proudly flying a South African flag. If we are serious about changing the direction of the country, we must look as much at ourselves as our new leadership,” says IQbusiness CEO, Adam Craker.Brand South Africa and IQbusiness will be the driving force behind #FlyYourFlag to address some of the challenges the country is facing:1. Job creation: The South African flags, flag poles and installation will be manufactured locally as part of the IQbusiness Enterprise Supplier Development (ESD) Programme.2. Flag ambassador: Flag ambassadors will be nominated, in each organisation, to be responsible for the flag; they will educate the community on its significance and how flags should be treated.3.
