South Ripley fell in three sets tonight to the Class A #6 ranked Trinity Lutheran team with scores of 25-19, 25-18, and 25-12.“We played great the first two sets and I think we even caught them by surprise with our blocking.” “The wheels just fell off that third set and we really struggled with serve receive and getting our offense going.” “I don’t mind playing great competition though, that’s what this young team needs is all of the experience it can get to help prepare us for conference play and sectional.” “I was very happy with our first two sets, we were up 19-16 the first game and we just couldn’t stay consistent to close it out.” “The second set was the same, we played well, we made some big plays, and then missed some easy plays.” Raiders Coach Robyn Greiwe.Stats for the game are a follows: Tori Tucker: 11/12 attacks 1 Kill, 7 blocks (3 solo, 4 assisted) 3/3 serving, 9-11 serve receive;Laken Farrell: 7/9 attacks 1 kill, 5 blocks (2 solo, 3 assisted) 11/11 serving for 7 points, 9/9 serve receive, 5 digs; Morgan Peetz: 8/8 attacks 2 kills, 2 blocks (1 solo, 1 assisted), 4 digs; Mercedes Bowling: 9/10 attacks 4 kills, 5 blocks (2 solo, 3 assisted) 11/12 serving for 6 points, 8 digs; Kiley Sparks: 16/18 attacks 7 kills, 6 blocks (5 solo, 1 assisted) 9/9 serving for 2 points, 12/14 serve receive, 15 digs; Elizabeth Bodenberg: 21/23 setting 5 assists, 6/6 serving; Kayla King: 24/28 setting 5 assists, 9/9 serving for 4 points; Julia Rea: 3/3 attacks 1 kill; and Mariah Gentile: 13 digs, 17/24 serve receive.
The cost and benefits of territorial tenure, and factors affecting mating success in male Antarctic fur seals
The timing, location and duration of territorial tenure, and the mating success and return rates of male Antarctic fur seals (Arctocephalus gazella) were measured over four consecutive breeding seasons (1984–87) on Bird Island (54°00’S, 38°02’W), South Georgia. Tenure duration (days) followed a heavily skewed, Poisson-like distribution (median 13.08 days, maximum 75 days) and was positively related to the number of years of tenure (rs= 0.52, P 0.7) or to the level of mating success in the current year (P > 0.15). It was, however, positively related to the duration of tenure in the current year (P < 0.0001). The overall annual return rate was 43% which is not significantly different from the survival rate for the general male population and suggests that territorial tenure does not contribute to increased mortality in male Antarctic fur seals.
