The opportunity for elite training with National coaches and players is fairly common for those touch players living in New South Wales or Queensland. However, for the smaller and more isolated touch regions such as the Northern Territory, the opportunities are fewer. Held once every twelve months, the Northern Territory Elite training camp is one such opportunity. The training camp has been run for the past seven years and this year brought 26 athletes to Darwin for the camp, which was run from June 24-26. The athletes were between the ago of 13 and 18 years and traveled from Darwin, Alice Springs, Katherine and Maningrida. Kerry Norman (current Australian Womens Open coach), Peter McNeven (past Australian Mens Open coach) and also Australian representatives Bo De la Cruz, Tony Eltakchi and Peter Stoddart, all made the trip to Darwin. Isobel Appo from Northern Territory Touch, says the idea behind the camp is to give the players three days of intense training and education in what is expected of an elite player. The camp included hydration and fluid lectures, fitness assessments, skill sessions and other activities. A little bit of fun was also scheduled in, with the players taken to the small town of Batchelor one morning to train, before heading to the beautiful Litchfield National Park for a swim. Local touch coaches were also invited to attend the camp, with the presence of Australian coaches a great opportunity to help develop their knowledge and skills. “All our athletes and coaches and our Association really appreciate the opportunity to have the Australian coaches and players give their valuable time and help which we see as an excellent tool in the development of touch at the elite level,” says Ms Appo.

OSU redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett huddles up with teammates prior to the Buckeyes 30-27 double-overtime win against Michigan. Credit: Mason Swires | Assistant Photo EditorSaturday’s win for the Ohio State football team over Michigan in double overtime solidified the Buckeyes as a playoff contender. In Tuesday’s latest installment of the College Football Playoff poll, OSU finds itself at the No. 2 spot, awaiting to hear whether they it be playing in the Peach Bowl or the Fiesta Bowl.Alabama remained at the top spot, and will be playing No. 15 Florida in the Southeastern Conference championship. At No. 3, Clemson moved up to replace Michigan following the Wolverines’ loss to the Buckeyes on Saturday. Washington rounds out the playoff spots in No. 4. Michigan dropped to No. 5.No. 6 Wisconsin and No. 7 Penn State will compete in the Big Ten Championship game, and both hope their respective performances are good enough to convince the committee to give them a spot in the playoffs.In the top six spots, the Big Ten has three teams, so the conference will have at least one representative in this year’s playoff.
It was a win, but nothing came easy for the Buckeyes.The Ohio State women’s basketball team took down Iowa, 91-85, in overtime Saturday night, advancing to the Big Ten Tournament final.Tied 37-37 at halftime, the Buckeyes roared back to take out the Hawkeyes for their second straight tournament win in Hoffman Estates, Ill.Freshman forward Alexa Hart connected on a free throw with 17 seconds to play to give OSU an 81-79 lead, but the Hawkeyes answered with a layup at the three-second mark to tie the game and force overtime.Iowa held the Big Ten’s leading scorer, OSU freshman guard Kelsey Mitchell, to 21 points in regulation, but she took over in overtime with a pair of 3-pointers and two late free throws, sealing the win for the Buckeyes.OSU is set to face No. 1 seeded Maryland in Sunday’s championship battle at 7 p.m.
Senior forward Sam Thompson (12) drives toward the basket during a game against Purdue on March 1 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 65-61.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorWith just two games remaining in the regular season, the Ohio State men’s basketball team is in a full sprint toward the finish line.The Buckeyes have rattled off back-to-back wins at home, including coming back from 12 points down to beat Purdue on Sunday night, 65-61.The win put the Buckeyes in a three-way tie for fourth in the Big Ten conference and was sparked by freshman sensation, guard D’Angelo Russell.Russell scored 17 of his 28 points in the second half of the game, and while it looked like the Louisville, Ky., native did most of the heavy lifting, he received ample help from three experienced seniors.While it might not have always been in the scoring column, center Amir Williams, guard Shannon Scott and forward Sam Thompson all contributed in their own way.Williams, who took on the Big Ten’s leading shot blocker in Purdue’s junior center A.J. Hammons, matched the 7-footer in rebounds and blocked shots, the last of which helped seal the win for OSU.While Williams has been known to be inconsistent at times, Matta said he was pleased with how his senior played against the Boilermakers.“I thought Amir, with three blocked shots, was as good as he could be,” Matta said after the game.Then came Scott, who has become known for his defense more than anything in his four years in Columbus. While he didn’t light up the scoreboard against the Boilermakers, recording just one assist, block and steal each, it was what didn’t show up on the stat sheet that impressed his coach.“Shannon, nobody would ever see it, but he did some things defensively tonight via scouting that was tremendous and really disrupted them,” Matta said.Scott scored just five points in the win, all coming at the free throw line, three of which came in the final minute to help seal the Buckeye win.Finally there was Thompson, who recorded 14 points in the win while hitting all six of his free throws, three per half.With games against Penn State and Wisconsin remaining before the start of the Big Ten Tournament, Thompson said his performance and the win were important moving forward.“This is the type of win we need to get, especially in the month of March,” Thompson said. “It’s too late for us to be taking steps backwards, and it’s our time to hit our stride, get going and to put together a run.”While Russell still is stealing the show, ranking second in the conference in scoring, he credited his fellow Buckeyes for the team’s success after the win.“My coaches put me in a great position to facilitate for my teammates,” Russell said. “Coaches kept running the same play, and we kept making the best out of it.”And although Russell hasn’t yet played in a postseason basketball game in his college career like most of his teammates have, he said he has already gotten a taste of things to come and wants more of it.“I could get used to this. This is great,” Russell said. “Every win counts and any win can trigger a run, and just getting this win on our home court is great going down to Penn State.”The Buckeyes and Nittany Lions are set to tip off at 6 p.m. Wednesday in State College, Pa. OSU won the first matchup between the two teams, 75-55, Feb. 11 in Columbus.
