  • Senior Keyes leads relay team after struggling early in career

    first_imgAshley Keyes was not always someone her teammates looked up to and her coaches relied upon for leadership in practice. During her freshman year, she was not running great times during conference championship meets. Instead, she was learning how to eventually accomplish these goals.“As a freshman, there is a lot of temptation,” Keyes said. “You’ve got to change your life outside of the track.”Assistant coach Dave Hegland, who has been one of Keyes’ mentors both on an off the track since she got to Syracuse, said that once her academics started to pick up last year, she started to see improvement.Keyes is a senior this season and after struggling off and on the track early in her college career, she is the leader of a relay team that is expected to have great success.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We see it all the time. Once the academics pick up and people get organized there, athletics almost always follow after,” Hegland said. “For us, sleep and diet are huge things and I think she improved both of those and starting to take herself a little bit more seriously as an athlete.”Track is a sport that requires dedication at all times, not just during practices and races. As a freshman, Keyes said she struggled to resist parties and unhealthy food. It was hard for Keyes to lay off sundaes at the dining hall or pizza when gathering with friends.But as a junior, Keyes was mature enough to resist the temptations and start reaching her goals.“My proudest moments on the track would have to be at the Big East (conference championships) last year where I had personal bests,” she said.Keyes ran a 12.03 second 100-meter dash in the race at the Big East championships last year, good for an eighth place finish.Building off that performance, Keyes has the opportunity to be a leader for her team as a senior. Sabrina Cammock is one of the returning members of Keyes’ relay team, and as a junior, admires the senior for her work ethic.“She is somebody I look up to,” Cammock said. “She already has two job offers and she works really hard.”After running together last season, both Keyes and Cammock are strong candidates to run on the relay again this year. The relay is one of Keyes’ favorite races and she expects a lot out of the group this year.Last year, Keyes didn’t think the relay team reached its full potential. But now both Keyes and Cammock think that making nationals is a possibility, not just a dream.“Everyone is faster, everyone is stronger. We actually have a lot more people to choose from (for the relay team),” Cammock said.All four runners from last year’s relay are back to run this season with the addition of transfers and freshmen threatening to take their spots.Hegland said the competition has only increased the girls’ work ethics and is helping to make them faster, with the goal of making the final relay team.“Ashley has run really great legs for us in the past on the 4X100-relay and I hope she’ll do the same this year,” Hegland said.In addition to placing at the Atlantic Coast Conference championship meet in the 100-meter race, making nationals in the relay is Keyes’ biggest goal for her final season, the team’s first in the ACC.Last year, in the Big East championships, she ran times that would have qualified if she were in the ACC. And Hegland said that in her first years of college, qualifying for a conference championship “would have been a very unrealistic goal.”But not now, with a job waiting for her after graduation and her priorities in order, Keyes has matured and she can focus all her attention on running.“Track is one of those sports where it’s not what you do on the track,” Keyes said, “but also what you do off the track that contributes to your success.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 12, 2014 at 1:12 amlast_img read more

  • Players from 1992-93 team reflect on that year’s NCAA Tournament, NIT bans handed down by NCAA

    first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ After losing in a blowout to Seton Hall in the 1993 Big East tournament final, Steve Keating remembers the Syracuse team bus pulling into the parking lot outside of Manley Field House with about three feet of snow on the ground.Then-assistant coach Bernie Fine was planning wind sprints and workouts for the next day. But a 20-9 SU team that went 10-8 in the Big East and 2-4 against Top 25 teams knew it wasn’t going to play for another 259 days.The Orangemen had been banned from postseason play by the NCAA for “repeated and conscious efforts by representatives of the university’s athletic interests to gain recruiting and competitive advantages for the men’s basketball program,” according to the governing body’s infractions committee. Its ban was released by the NCAA before the season on Oct. 2, 1992 and the Big East voted to allow SU to play in the conference tournament.It left the then-defending Big East champions with no shot at a national title. Those Orangemen — including now former NBA players Lawrence Moten and John Wallace — were the last to miss out on the national postseason and the last Syracuse men’s basketball team to receive a postseason ban.“Your hopes are to have a successful season and make the NCAA, and especially when you’re at Syracuse, you want to win it,” then-SU forward Glenn Sekunda said. “And it’s not far-fetched to think that either.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textCurrent SU assistant coaches Mike Hopkins and Adrian Autry were also on the 1992–93 team — Hopkins was a senior — but were not made available for comment for this story.In the wake of SU’s decision to self-impose a postseason ban for this year’s team, after an NCAA investigation that hasn’t produced sanctions yet, Keating and his former teammate on that team, Sekunda, reflected on the experience of accepting the ban and playing through a season knowing no NCAA Tournament or NIT awaited.“The biggest thing is disappointment and you feel like you’ve done nothing wrong to warrant that,” Sekunda said.Keating was a walk-on and an engineering major who only played one minute in his two-year career. The NCAA-sanctioned loss of a scholarship for each of the next two seasons contributed to Keating’s decision to leave the team after the 1992–93 season as he figured he wouldn’t be able to earn one as a walk-on, he said.Current walk-ons may do the same if the NCAA issues any sanctions that affect scholarships too, he said.“As a walk-on, these are some of the thing you look forward to,” he said of NCAA Tournament appearances.Keating emphasized that bans are much worse for scholarship players who have a reasonable chance of getting scouted for and playing professional basketball.Sekunda transferred to Penn State after the season due to limited playing time and went on to play 12 years of professional basketball in Europe. He said that while the fact that there was no postseason did enter his mind and his teammates’, it didn’t change game days.“You try to prove to your opponent ‘Hey, I’m better than you,’” Sekunda said.
