Kelly Cross transitions back into Syracuse’s offense after returning from suspension

Moments before, amid the shouts inside the Ensley Athletic Center, the senior assisted on a goal, distributing to players she’d known for years but hadn’t been teammates with in months.The midfielder was indefinitely suspended for an unspecified violation of team rules in late March 2015. Four days before announcing her suspension, Cross was the driver of the car that crashed into the Mount Olympus steps. Cross was allowed to practice in the spring during her suspension, but couldn’t travel or play in games. By August, she was no longer enrolled at Syracuse.“She’s gone through a lot,” assistant coach Regy Thorpe said. “We’re very proud of her. I think most people would maybe pack it in and transfer. She dug her cleats in and did her stuff off the field in the community that she needed to do to come back.”About 13 hours before the crash, in one her best career games to that point, Cross scored a hat trick, picked up five ground balls and forced two turnovers at then-No. 7 Northwestern, which beat then-No. 5 Syracuse 11-10. After working to return to the place she was at before the suspension, Cross gets the chance to follow up last year’s performance when she sees the Wildcats again Sunday as No. 2 Syracuse (4-0) hosts No. 7 Northwestern (1-1) at noon.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn Cross’ return, she’s started only one of the team’s four games, but scored five goals and grabbed three groundballs. It’s a continuation of the success she saw in her first year contributing for the Orange as a junior. Before the suspension, she started all 11 games, scoring 14 goals and assisting on six, ranking fourth on the team in points.“She came right back to where she was beforehand,” said teammate Riley Donahue. “She’s been very consistent, as she was last year.”Cross declined an interview for this story. She is concentrating on moving forward, Cross said through an SU spokeswoman via email, and she’s focused on this season after addressing what happened and working through it with her family and teammates.After the time off, coaches and teammates have seen her work hard to get to where she was before by running extra sprints and working outside of practice.“You can train on your own but it’s not game speed,” Thorpe said. “The offense she knows. She’s got chemistry with the players. But now she’s getting herself into really good game shape.”In her incremental improvements, she’s worked her way back to the player head coach Gary Gait calls one of his best midfielders. Her return, he said, strengthens the defense and scoring of his squad.Through that extra work, both coaches said that Cross has developed into a vocal leader for the team. Donahue said Cross has brought “positive energy,” directed players both on the field and off and led a team that includes her sister, freshman Julie Cross.“She’s going to increase our offensive and defensive output,” Gait said. “We’re expecting a lot out of her.” Commentslast_img read more

Angels’ Albert Pujols enjoying his best month of the season so far

first_imgFor the season, Pujols has 15 homers with a .772 OPS, which is up from his marks of .672 and .700 in the previous two seasons.He’s also played 57 games at first base already, which is nearly the total of 70 he reached last season before having season-ending surgery.ROTATION JUMBLEThe Angels optioned Dillon Peters on Tuesday and recalled Taylor Ward, giving them an extra position player on the bench for two games in a National League park.However, the move also left their rotation full of questions for the four-game series against the Baltimore Orioles that begins on Thursday. They played on Tuesday night with just three starters on the active roster: Félix Peña, Jaime Barría and Griffin Canning.Barría is scheduled to pitch on Wednesday, and after that it’s uncertain. Canning is likely to start on Friday, so the Angels can give him an extra day. Peña could pitch again on Sunday. “I can’t give you (the pitchers for) Baltimore till I see what happens the next two days,” Ausmus said before Tuesday’s game. “I have a general idea, but it’s not etched in stone. Unfortunately, that’s where we’re at right now.”ALSONoé Ramírez said he has no idea when the appeal of his three-game suspension will be heard. Ramirez was suspended after hitting Jake Marisnick, who had been suspended for his collision with Angels catcher Jonathan Lucroy. …Shohei Ohtani threw another bullpen session on Tuesday. He said he’s still throwing only fastballs, and not at full velocity. Ohtani said so far he’s had no problems with his elbow in his throwing rehab. …The Dodgers announced that they would donate the proceeds from Tuesday’s 50-50 raffle to the Tyler Skaggs Baseball Foundation.UP NEXTAngels (RHP Jaime Barría, 3-3, 7.36) at Dodgers (RHP Ross Stripling, 4-3, 3.64), Wednesday, 7:10 p.m., Fox Sports West, 830 AM Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error They could bring José Suarez back as soon as Thursday, because he will have been optioned for 10 days then. Peters can’t return until Aug. 2.JC Ramírez, who is scheduled for at least one more outing with Class-A Inland Empire, is going to return as a multi-inning reliever. He still could be used a part of a pitching solution, either as an opener or by essentially splitting a start with another multi-inning reliever such as Taylor Cole or Trevor Cahill.Andrew Heaney, who is on the injured list with a shoulder issue, isn’t expecting to be out long, but he also won’t throw for a few more days, Ausmus said.Related Articles Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter LOS ANGELES — More than halfway through the season, at age 39, Albert Pujols has gotten hot.“At this point, he may be the best he’s looked all year,” Angels manager Brad Ausmus said on Tuesday.Pujols has lifted his average each month of the season, going from .220 in April to .238 in May to .250 in June to .359 so far in July. His monthly OPS has gone from .713 to .750 to .750 to .996.“I think he feels really good physically,” Ausmus said. “He gets his workouts in, maintains his strength. I have given him rest at times. I know he’s not always happy about getting rest, but that plays into it. It’s been remarkable how he’s performed as we’ve gotten deeper into the season.”center_img Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros last_img read more
