Program on the rise: Stratford girls basketball looks to turn a good start into a great finish

first_imgBy Paul LeckerSports ReporterSTRATFORD — The Stratford girls basketball team’s 7-2 start to the season may be surprising to some but not to the Tigers.Stratford started the season 6-0 before suffering conference home losses to Auburndale and Wisconsin Rapids Assumption during the last two weeks.Second-year coach Tammie Christopherson has high hopes for the Tigers this season but knows there is still plenty of work to do.The Tigers cleared one hurdle toward becoming a top-tier team in the Marawood Conference South by beating Wausau Newman Catholic on the road on Dec. 10, but a 10-point loss to Auburndale and a turnover-plagued 57-30 defeat to Assumption on Monday have showed they are not quite there.“We’re a program that’s been building and rising,” Christopherson said. “I tell the girls we’re a good program. We want to be a great program. In order to be a great program, we have to beat these teams at the top of the Marawood. We’re sick and tired of being fourth or fifth, we want to climb out of that.“We’re heading in the right direction, but we’re not there yet. It’s a long season. I have all the confidence that we can figure this out and we can come back stronger the next time. The beauty of the Marawood is we get see these teams all over again.”Stratford has a roster filled with juniors and sophomores. The only senior is 5-foot-11 center Marissa Cepress.Juniors Macie Frueh and Tianna Hughes are each averaging 10 points a game, and Cepress, Savannah Schillinger, and Casey Kolbeck—the other three starters in the Tigers’ lineup—have also scored in double figures in at least one game this season.“We’re a small team, and that does hurt us sometimes,” Christopherson said. “We do get scoring from a lot of different places, and I think that is probably our biggest strength right now. We have to develop an inside game. We can’t rely solely on living and dying by the 3-point line. Slowly but surely we’re creeping into the inside game a little more.”The Tigers, 2-2 in the Marawood South, have games against Pittsville and Marathon coming up before beginning their second time through the conference slate. Christopherson said the team needs to continue to work hard and improve, especially in the mental part of the game.“We’re still young. My goal is that we keep getting better,” Christopherson said. “My first three people off the bench are sophomores. I see growth in them too. We have to keep building. This conference is absolutely insane. There’s no off night in the Marawood, but I guess I wouldn’t have it any other way.”Paul Lecker is publisher of MarshfieldAreaSports.com, a contributor to Hub City Times Sports.

TB toolkit for SA companies

first_img5 June 2008The Global Health Initiative of the World Economic Forum (WEF) and pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly have launched a new toolkit that aims to boost the involvement of South African companies in tackling tuberculosis (TB) in the country.The announcement, made at the World Economic Forum on Africa in Cape Town this week, comes as South Africa faces an emerging threat of TB/HIV co-infections and fatal drug-resistant strains of the disease.In a statement on Tuesday, the WEF said the toolkit was developed in collaboration with the Lilly MDR-TB partnership, together with inputs from national and international partners, including private sector representatives.The toolkit provides concrete guidelines to help South African companies rapidly increase their TB control programmes by adopting a joint approach to tackling both TB and HIV.With some 70% of TB patients in South Africa also infected with HIV, the importance of an integrated approach to care is clear, and the South African government has recognised the importance of engaging the private sector to achieve its TB case detection and treatment targets.South African companies have the opportunity to catalyse effective public-private partnerships to facilitate successful patient and programme management, lessening the economic impact of TB, which currently leads to a decline in worker productivity estimated at US$13-billion (R100.7-billion) annually.“Businesses have a fundamental responsibility towards both their employees and the wider community, and for preservation of their long-term interests by ensuring the national development of human capital to drive economic growth,” said Eli Lilly Corporate Affairs and Communications vice president Alex Azar. “Tuberculosis has the capacity to undermine all of this.”Shattering the cycleAccording to the WEF, the TB toolkit aims to shatter the cycle of transmission that so often defines the gravity of TB. By intercepting the progression of the disease and its lethal synergy with HIV/Aids, businesses can better leverage their existing health infrastructures and management tools and resources to greater effect.Combined with the technical expertise and knowledge available under South Africa’s national TB programme and the national Aids control programme, companies can provide a critical mass of resources for successful TB control.“It’s a disturbing paradox to think that people should die from a curable disease like tuberculosis,” said Dr Shaloo Puri, head of the India Business Alliance, and India and tuberculosis adviser at the Global Health Initiative of the World Economic Forum. “The sooner South African businesses start awakening to the extent of the problem, the sooner they can understand the associated risks in the workforce and to their business.”Community engagementOn a practical level, the toolkit will help companies increase opportunities and activities in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of TB/HIV co-infections in the workplace.These measures will in turn help alleviate the burden and costs associated with absenteeism, disrupted workflow and reduced productivity.By engaging proactively with the community, which forms a key component of the overall business environment, businesses can offset the marginal cost of partnering with local stakeholders with the huge benefits they will reap through greater efficiency in the workplace and the good will in the community.Although South Africa represents only 0.7% of the world’s population, it has 28% of the global number of HIV-positive TB cases.“South African business leaders must start to recognize the crucial role they can play in TB care and the importance of the workplace setting as a win-win setting for TB control,” the WEF says.“Despite being preventable, treatable and curable, TB continues to devastate the continent. Unless individuals and organizations unite in advocacy and action, everyone stands to lose.”SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
