Scharfe nets 40th career goal, becomes programs all-time leading scorer

first_img Published on February 24, 2014 at 12:34 am Contact Connor: cgrossma@syr.edu | @connorgrossman Facebook Twitter Google+ With a flick of her wrist, Syracuse forward Margot Scharfe netted her 40th career goal to unseat Holly Carrie-Mattimoe as the all-time leading goal scorer in program history.The goal by Scharfe — which came 15 minutes into the first period — tied the game at 1-1, but SU (18-13-3, 9-8-3 College Hockey America) ultimately fell to the Rochester Institute of Technology (16-15-3, 11-7-2) 3-1 on Friday, and lost again 2-1 in overtime on Saturday. The bigger picture for Scharfe was trying to win the game — as it has been her entire collegiate career. In fact, she wasn’t even aware of her feat until the next morning.But still, she could not receive credit without delegating it. AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It feels nice to be recognized,” Scharfe says. “But there’s no way I could’ve done this without my teammates, so kudos to them as well.”Head coach Paul Flanagan has been at the helm for Scharfe’s entire four-year career, and gave her high praise as someone who’s seen her develop as team captain both on and off the ice. “She’s a constant team player and a very good captain,” Flanagan said, “She’s the last person who would get concerned or caught up in any sort of record.” Her progression to reach the pinnacle of goal scorers in program history has been one filled with adversity and punctuated with hard work. Flanagan highlighted Scharfe’s strong desire to come to Syracuse, not just for hockey, but especially academics. Scharfe came in hoping to “occupy the last locker in the clubhouse,” as Flanagan put it, and has worked her way up to the first line and captain of her squad.“She came in knowing full well that (she’s) got to earn (her) stripes,” Flanagan said. “And through her four years she’s worked from fourth line to the first line.“She’s one of those real good success stories that we love to talk about.”Scharfe said her line has been essential to her success on the season and throughout her career. She’s put in a lot of work to have results out on the ice, but according to her, none of the results are achieved single-handedly.“My line has always been really good for me,” Scharfe said. “We’re all gritty and are trying to get to the pucks floating around the net.”Her teammates, especially those that have accompanied her the past four years, have attested to her diligence in putting extra work in and maximizing her potential.Senior Orange defender Caitlin Roach has shared the ice with Scharfe since 2010, and said the four years together have created a bond and chemistry that couldn’t be replicated elsewhere.“Margot is an extremely hard worker and always keeps her feet moving on the ice,” Roach said. “She’s a leader on the ice and girls follow what she does.”Scharfe has tried to emulate her play after Stefanie Marty, a former Orange standout. Marty played for the Swiss Olympic Women’s Ice Hockey team and played for SU when Scharfe was a freshman.“She’s one of the hardest workers I’ve ever played with,” Scharfe said, “and I’ve just tried my best to follow in her footsteps.”While Scharfe hasn’t reached Olympic glory like Marty has, her success playing for Flanagan and the program at SU is officially unprecedented.“She has one of the most consistent and strong work ethics,” Flanagan said. “She’s been as consistent as anyone since the first day she came here.” Commentslast_img read more

Rec center offers athletic opportunities

first_imgThere is no doubt that one of the biggest benefits for a sports fan attending the University of Wisconsin is the level of competition at which the school’s varsity teams compete. It is, with little question, a true joy to go and watch athletes compete at nearly the highest level. Once more, these sports programs facilitate a communal atmosphere that undoubtedly bonds all of the student observers through a shared experience. Yet there is much more to every sports enthusiast than just an interest in observing sports. There also exists the element of participation that is necessary for someone to really immerse themselves in the culture of sports — and fitness as a whole — while on campus. Whether it’s club sports, intramural competition or just staying in shape, the best spots on campus for achieving this immersion is at recreation centers. A staple of colleges around the country, rec centers offer all students the opportunity to compete, socialize and stay in shape all throughout the year. Even when the sub-zero temperatures set in, which they surely will, Madison’s easily accessible rec centers offer a sanctuary for those who crave the physical exertion that only competition through sport or exercise brings. Currently awaiting completion is the brand new Nicholas Recreation Center — “the Nick” — that will be located in the Southeast portion of campus right in-between Ogg, Witte and Sellery residence halls. Scheduled to be finished in early 2020, the incoming residents of Southeast dorms will soon be greeted with the opportunity to utilize the Nick for the first time. As UW moves forward with plans for new Natatorium, Rec Sports hosts listening session with ASMAs the University of Wisconsin moves forward in their plans for a new Natatorium, representatives from Recreational Sports sought the Read…Boasting a grand total of five floors of active space, eight full-size basketball courts, five dedicated fitness studios, 29 swimming lanes and over 30,000 square feet of cardio and strength training space, the Nick will surely be an irreplaceable asset for all those who wish to participate in the many offered student sports programs or who simply want to get fit. For anyone who does not find themselves in Southeast residence halls during the year, there is nothing to fear. The largest current rec center, the Natatorium, is located on Observatory drive. It’s in close proximity to Lakeshore residence halls. It too contains multiple basketball courts, swimming lanes, weight and cardio areas as well as its own dedicated training studios. Though staying in shape is one of the most important things to focus on while dealing with the challenges of college, perhaps even more important is finding a place within the campus community. For those who function well in a competitive environment, rec centers in Madison are the home of building this competitive bond with fellow students. SSFC passes 2020 segregated fee allocation, approves new rules for budget returnsThe Student Services Finance Committee approved the 2020 segregated fee appropriation and new rules for General Student Services Fund budget Read…During an examination of basketball culture at the Shell, the famed rec center located under the imposing shadow of Camp Randall, this idea of forging close bonds through sport clearly revealed itself. UW student Nick Johnston said no matter where the competition comes from, athletes welcome those who wish to join them in their endeavor to forge friendships through sport.“No matter who you play against or with it is still a tight community, what is on the court is different than what is off the court.” For those who wish to continue their competitive habits or strike up new ones, there exists no place better than the rec centers to reap the benefits of sports. Despite one’s time management skills or academic drive, there come times when each and every student will be stressed during the course of the school year. What better way exists to relieve that stress than through the very resources offered by UW’s rec centers? SERF to be renamed the ‘Nick’ in honor of Nicholas familyIn an announcement Tuesday, the University of Wisconsin detailed plans for the construction of the Nicholas Recreation Facility, which will Read…On this very topic, Johnston elaborated on his experience with basketball at the Shell. “It’s natural for humans to have a drive to compete. We come to the Shell to compete and get all that bound up energy out,” he said.This experience is not limited to the basketball community, as any student that wishes to find friendly yet stiff competition amongst their peers will certainly have the opportunity to do so at one of the rec centers in Madison. As a Big Ten school, UW has the resources at its disposable necessary to provide a rewarding athletic experience for all those who are interested in sports and participating in them. All it takes is a short walk to the nearest rec center to discover a world of competition and fitness that is only available within a community of thousands of like-minded students.last_img read more
