Beach volleyball looks to dominate conference

first_imgThe Trojans last played the Huskies in the Pac-12 North Invitational and defeated them 5-0. Many of the sets were decided by large margins, and USC was especially successful at the top two positions. The Huskies finished their season with an 8-14 record and earned the seventh seed in the tournament. They are 2-4 in their last six games, and the Trojans hope to capitalize on this favorable matchup. Freshman Laurel Kujan passes the ball in a match last week at Merle Norman Stadium. (Ling Luo/Daily Trojan) Senior Abril Bustamante and sophomore Tina Graudina were both steady forces for the Trojans at the top court as they finished with a commanding 26-2 match record for the season. Graduate student Alexandra Poletto and sophomore Haley Hallgren matched them with a 26-2 record of their own. Both of these duos are trending upward at the right time as well, having won their last eight matches. If USC defeats Washington, it  will then face the winner of the Cal-Arizona State game Thursday. Cal is currently the higher ranked seed, and they defeated the Sun Devils 5-0 in their only matchup this season. The Trojans concluded their regular season last Thursday with two victories over Grand Canyon University and Cal Poly on Senior Day. The team showcased strong play in these final matchups, winning both by a score of 4-1. With these victories, the Trojans completed an eight-game winning streak to cap off another strong regular season record of 24-4. “The beginning of the season matters, but it is all about the end,” Hallgren said. “[We] want to be the last team to get the win.” No. 2 USC is preparing to host the Pac-12 Tournament beginning Thursday. USC trails behind only UCLA in the Pac-12 and will face off against Washington at home in the first round. USC will take on the Huskies to kick off the Pac-12 Tournament  at Merle Norman Stadium at 3 p.m. Thursday. “We all changed our mindset [toward the end of the season],” Hallgren said. “We each focused on our own individual court, which eventually led to team wins.”last_img read more

Colombia government rebels to set up truth commission

first_imgRelated posts:Colombia’s ‘discriminatory’ military draft under discussion as peace deal comes closer Colombian leader, rival head to runoff vote Santos re-elected president in Colombia Colombia and FARC rebels announce major breakthrough in peace talks HAVANA, Cuba – Negotiators trying to end Latin America’s oldest civil war agreed Saturday to set up a truth commission that addresses the deaths of thousands of people in five decades of conflict.The move is seen as a stride toward a possible peace deal in Colombia.“What we are announcing today is a historic step forward on the effort to put victims at the center of the [peace] process,” said ex-Vice President Humberto de la Calle.“These principles are unprecedented — never heard of before in Colombia, or in any other peace process,” the leader of President Juan Manuel Santos’ negotiating team stressed at the Cuban-hosted talks.The Marxist FARC rebels and Colombian government also agreed to recognize victims on both sides of the conflict, as well as address victims’ rights, reparations and safety guarantees.Preliminary truth commission panel hearings are due to start next month in several locations.“We are taking the first steps in a process full of thorny issues and enormous misunderstandings,” FARC lead negotiator Iván Márquez said.The two sides promised in a joint statement that they would “not be trading blame” at this stage.The date of the next rounds of peace talks has yet to be announced.The FARC meanwhile declared a unilateral ceasefire starting Monday ahead of a June 15 presidential runoff pitting Santos, of the center-right, against conservative Iván Zuluaga.The ceasefire will stretch June 9-30, said FARC chief Timoleón Jiménez.Talks to end the FARC’s 50-year-old insurgency have been under way since November 2012.Santos has said he hopes to accelerate the process, but with less than two weeks to go, its future will depend on the outcome of the election.Zuluaga has said there can only be a peace if the FARC — with an estimated 7,000-8,000 fighters — declares a permanent ceasefire and its leaders go to jail.Among key issues still to be ironed out are the surrender of weapons by the FARC and how to enshrine a comprehensive peace agreement in law.
