Tewaaraton award 2015: Kevin Rice, Kayla Treanor fall short of prestigious title

first_img Published on May 28, 2015 at 9:47 pm Contact Jon: [email protected] | @jmettus WASHINGTON D.C. — Kevin Rice stood on stage with his hands folded in front of him as the men’s Tewaaraton award winner was announced.Just minutes earlier, as the women’s winner was announced, Kayla Treanor instantly flashed a smile and laughed with Notre Dame defender Barbara Sullivan standing next to her.Neither Rice nor Treanor took home the Tewaaraton at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. Thursday night. University at Albany’s Lyle Thompson took home the men’s Tewaaraton and Maryland midfielder Taylor Cummings won the award for the women.“It would mean a lot (to win),” Rice said before the ceremony. “It would be certainly a validation of my career, but even if I don’t win it it’s still an honor to be here.”Rice and Treanor were among the five finalists for each award — one for the men and one for the women — given to the nation’s top player. Denver attack Wesley Berg, Duke midfielder Myles Jones and Notre Dame attack Matt Kavanagh rounded out the men’s group. Florida attack Shannon Gilroy, Boston College midfielder Sarah Mannelly and Sullivan were the other finalists on the women’s side.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textRice led the second-best scoring offense in the country with 84 points and won the Jack Turnbull Award, given to the nation’s most outstanding attack, beating out Thompson. The Orange suffered a disappointing 16-15 loss to unseeded Johns Hopkins in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament, despite coming in as the No. 2 seed.“I didn’t really play at all as freshman and you know just every year keep developing and my role increased to be a captain this last year was extremely exciting for me,” Rice said before the ceremony.He would have joined former Syracuse attacks Michael Powell and Mike Leveille as the only SU players to win the Tewaaraton.Thompson put up 121 points for Albany this season, second in NCAA history to the 128 he put up last year when he shared the Tewaaraton Award with his brother, Miles. He’s the first back-to-back men’s Tewaaraton winner since the award was first given out in 2001 and the first repeat winner since Powell won it in 2002 and 2004.“I’m just proud to represent my team in Albany,” Thompson said. “ … We changed the look on lacrosse — all of lacrosse around the world. “On the women’s side, Treanor’s 60 goals were the most for the SU and her 91 points were tied for first on the team with attack Halle Majorana. She earned ACC Offensive Player of the Year honors for the second year in a row and is fourth all time in points, assists and goals for the Orange, despite having and up and down year in which she recorded zero points in three games.SU battled through a tumultuous season marked with eight losses to win the ACC championship, but lost to Cummings and Maryland in the final four.“It’s just about being here,” Treanor said before the ceremony. “You don’t focus on winning these kind of things. It’s just about the event.”Cummings put together a similar campaign to last season, en route to her second straight Tewaaraton Award and national championship. She finished first in the nation in points and fifth in draw controls this season, including 11 points in the national championship and semifinal games.A women’s player from Maryland has won the Tewaaraton each of the past four years, with Cummings and Katie Schwarzmann each winning it in back-to-back years. Cummings became the first female sophomore to win the award last year.“Individual awards are great, but it wouldn’t happen without (my teammates),” Cummings said during her speech.Also at the event, Oren Lyons, a former All-American goalie for Syracuse and faithkeeper of the Turtle Clan of Onondaga Nation, was given the Spirit of Tewaaraton award.Former Syracuse midfielder Brad Kotz was honored with the Tewaaraton Legend Award, given each year to a player who played before 2001 when the award was first created.

EMMET RUSHE’S FITNESS COLUMN: HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE: This is the last part of my series on ‘How to lose weight and keep it off – for good’This week we will be looking at HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and if you need or should use it in your fat loss goals.High Intensity interval Training is better known as HIIT. 
It is being heralded as the latest and greatest form of cardio based fat loss training. HIIT is a form of training that is short, intense and can involve a single exercise done numerous times, e.g. hill sprints. It can also be done with multiple exercises done in a short circuit format.The reason that HIIT has become so popular is because of EPOC.
 
EPOC stands for Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption and what this means is that after you finish your training session, your body will continue to burn calories due to the intensity of the session in order to replace the oxygen ‘debt’ the training has provided.It all sounds a bit complicated, but basically you do short intense sessions and you will still be burning calories long after your session has finished, or so the story goes.HIIT has also been shown to help release fatty acids, (stored fat) for energy. A 15 min HIIT session which can herald anything from a 200 – 400 calorie burn depending on the intensity of the sessionSounds like a win-win situation: short workouts, longer calorie burn and using stored fat for energy.It should be noted that if you are not in a calorie deficit the released fatty acids that you would like to burn off won’t be used, your body has no reason to use them up.Another thing to consider is that EPOC isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.EPOC from HIIT is around 14% of total calories burned in the session. 
EPOC from steady state cardio is around 7% of total calories burned in the session. 30 minutes of HIIT intervals = burning 342 calories including EPOC.60 minutes of moderate steady state cardio = burning 642 calories including EPOC.If you look at the overall totals, there is very little difference.So should you use HIIT? It’s not a yes or no answer.The question shouldn’t be “which is better?”The question should be “which is better suited to me?”Let’s say you are overweight and have been inactive for years. You may find it hard just walking up the stairs at work.Do you really think that a 30 min session of HIIT class that involves high impact exercises like burpees is the best starting point for you?Probably not.But an hour of walking on the treadmill might be a great starting because it’s low intensity and uses fat as an energy source.Let’s say you are busy, train a few times per week and want to add some cardio to your session for some extra fat loss.A 10 min HIIT sprint session at the end of your workout can be the extra push you need to drop those last few pounds.To sum up the last few weeks of this series for you;In Order to lose weight and Keep it off here’s what you have to do.Reduce your calorie intake.Have protein with every meal.Forget about the low fat nonsense.Manage your carb intake and reduce your intake of processed foods.Train with weights 3-4 days per weekChoose a form of cardio that suit YOU and your life.It’s that simpleFollow these simply rules and you will be on your way to a better body in no time.#TrainSmartTo keep up to date with fitness and nutrition tips, be sure to follow me through the link below.
