WILBRAHAM — No. 1 Minnechaug girls volleyball coach Mark Taylor admitted this season has been different than most.“The rituals that we’ve had in practice for about the last four years, of what we would do every day, have been fully stretched,” he said. “We only have one court to practice on, and we usually get two. Nowadays, we only practice for an hour-and-15 minutes while before it was for at least two-and-a-half hours.”COVID-19 has made it where the girls have to go with what they know and go from there.”After falling into an early hole against No. 4 Longmeadow Tuesday evening, the Falcons proved their coach right by claiming the next three sets and the match (24-26, 25-22, 25-15, 25-22) at home.Chelsea Foulis helped Minnechaug remain unbeaten at 6-0 with 12 kills and 13 digs, while Isabella Arcidiacono earned a game-high 26 assists. Leah Kagan, for her part, contributed with seven digs.“I have never been known to be quiet,” said Foulis, regarding her on-the-court motivation. “I also think it’s hard to be quiet when you’re 6-foot-2. Since you’re on such a high stage up there, you may grow a personality because of that, and my characteristic …

the dallas cowboys have plenty of problems, but leadership is down the list

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Jaylon Smith’s back was to the ball. He had no idea where it was when he plowed into Washington’s Logan Thomas, forcing an incompletion.The Cowboys linebacker immediately began clapping to celebrate his play.The official immediately threw his flag, calling Smith for a 19-yard pass interference penalty.Did Smith regard stopping the reception as some sort of victory? Was he inspiring his teammates to new heights?Was that leadership?Smith symbolizes much of what’s wrong with Dallas at this 2-5 moment. Inconsistent performance. A detachment from competitive reality. A willingness to celebrate small victories when battles are being lost.This isn’t a swipe — just hoping to eradicate negative energy, as the linebacker would say — at Smith. It’s a jumping-off point to explore a topic that’s gained traction in recent days.Part of the reason the Cowboys find themselves in this bind, the theory goes, is that they lack strong leadership among the players. An argument is made that Dallas would somehow be better off if it had more players who were willing to get in the face of their teammates and chew them out. The passive response after Washington’s Jon Bostic knocked …

Gen. John B. Morrison Jr. handles strategy, planning and implementation of the CIO’s policies while Greg Garcia, a civilian, serves as CIO. The Army announced it would split the CIO and the G-6 into two roles in June, and the separation officially took effect in August after former CIO/G-6 Lt. Gen. Bruce Crawford retired. In a briefing with reporters Tuesday, Morrison outlined his priorities for the G-6 and discussed some of the top challenges he faces in turning his vision into reality. Getting the office loaded with appropriate talent is one of the immediate tasks needed to get the G-6 to full operational capability. “I think the biggest challenge is hiring in the current operating environment, for lack of a better term,” Morrison said. “The skill sets that we are going to be wanting to go after are, as you know, in very high demand.” Morrison said …
