After 13 years, Henderson resigns

first_imgAfter a season that didn’t include a single Big Ten victory, UW women’s tennis coach Patti Henderson decided to call it quits Monday.After 13 seasons with Wisconsin, Henderson is resigning from her position to pursue interests outside of collegiate athletics. Her last day of employment will be May 31, but a national search for her replacement is already underway.”It is with deep gratitude and appreciation to the University of Wisconsin Athletic Department and Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez that I step away from my position as the women’s tennis coach and follow my heart to pursue my new dream,” Henderson said in a statement.”I offer many thanks to the athletic program for providing me a training ground as rich and vibrant as all great relationships,” she added. “This was a relationship in which I was able to learn and to grow and has now completed its natural cycle. To this unfolding, I am forever grateful to Barry.”And Alvarez said he was grateful for everything Henderson has done for the university over the years.”I’m very appreciative of Patti’s years of service to the University of Wisconsin,” Alvarez said. “Patti was committed to providing a great experience for her student-athletes and that commitment was reflected in their successes on the court and in the classroom. We wish her well as she begins a new chapter in her life.”Despite her struggles in the past season, Henderson’s teams were some of the best in school history.In only her second season (1995-96), Henderson led the Badgers to the school’s only Big Ten title, a No. 7 national ranking and a NCAA regional win. Over her UW career, Henderson coached four players to seven All-American awards, while 10 of her players have won 20 Big Ten awards.In 1996 and 2002, she was honored by her conference peers as the Big Ten Coach of the Year.A possible replacement for Henderson’s position could come within the program as assistant coach Doanh Wang remains with the team. Although this past season was Wang’s first with UW, he has coached in the Madison area for several years. In three seasons coaching at Edgewood College, Wang was twice named Coach of the Year.In her statement, Henderson thanked Wang for his contributions in what was a difficult season for the entire team.”I am especially indebted to Doanh Wang, my assistant coach,” she said. “Rare is the individual who will walk away from a sure thing to take a chance at the unknown. Doanh not only took this leap of faith, he backed it up with a hunger, passion and commitment only an open heart and soul can allow.”Henderson also gave Wisconsin her best wishes.”I leave UW, with love in my heart for Wisconsin athletics and a knowing of the commitment to excellence this athletic department strives for,” Henderson said.”I wish all the best to the University of Wisconsin and the athletic department.”last_img read more

SHOCKING! HOW COULD ANYONE DUMP THESE PUPS?

first_imgTHEY have faces to melt the hardest of hearts.But someone decided to dump them in Mountcharles – and left them. Three of them managed to make it to the garden of a local woman who rescued them – she found two others later.  “We arrived up today to collect the pups that seem to be collie x springers approx 9 weeks old. There are 4 females and 1 male,” said Ryan McCauley from Donegal Pet Rescue.“They seemed in quite good health, they had a wormy belly and wee bit nervous but other than that healthy. We looked around the area to see maybe a mother had been dumped with them but unfortunately there was no sign of her.“We walked around the local area and asked the neighbours if they had seen any dogs or unusual vehicles in the area but to no avail. We are hoping that these little cuties have wondered off by themselves but it is looking like someone dumped them in this location knowing they would be found rather than pick up the phone and ask a rescue organisation for help.“The pups were checked over and although two of them are a bit nervous of us they seem used to human contact so that puts the idea of being born wild out of the equation. “They got treated for worms and will get their vaccinations and chips in the next few days. We are pleading with the public for information on this case as it is quite strange to find healthy pups in an area where they will be found quickly.“We do get pups dumped that are unhealthy or too young to be away from the mum as the owner does want to look after them anymore but most people will call us for help.“We have had cases in the past were the pups were born in fields to a mum but these pups are used to human interaction and quite healthy so can’t be the case. We would like the public to please get in contact if they recognise theses pups or if they know the mum of these pups so we know she is safe and looked after.“The rescue centres are always under pressure but we will do everything in our power to help you especially young pups. There is no need to dump them off hoping they will be found. We have had no reports of missing pups or the rescue in the local area has had no reports of missing pups so we are assuming they have been dumped, but if these are your pups please get in contact with us. Can everyone please share so we can get the information we need on these pups and their mum. And please if you don’t want puppies then neuter your pets, dogs trust are running a free neutering and micro-chipping scheme for the month of July.” SHOCKING!
