Brittany Poist’s Lacrosse Profile | ConnectLAX
McKendree University director of athletics Dr. Todd Reynolds has announced that Brittany Poist has been hired as the first coach of the women’s lacrosse program for the Bearcats. With the hiring of Poist, McKendree is moving forward with plans to field a varsity women’s lacrosse team in the spring of 2013. The Bearcats will play at the NCAA Division II level as the institution continues its progress towards full membership in the organization. McKendree is thrilled to be part of the growing interest in the sport of women’s lacrosse throughout the Midwest, said Reynolds. We are confident that there is a solid foundation of players and programs to build on as we look forward to our first season of competition. In like manner, the University has hired an extraordinary individual as its first coach. Brittany Poist is a name that will be recognized throughout the lacrosse community. She has achieved a remarkable degree of success both as a player and as a coach at the club lacrosse level. Coach Poist will attract immediate interest in the McKendree program and will not only field a competitive team, but will be helpful in raising the visibility of lacrosse as a sport option for young women across the region. Poist, who at 22 is one of the youngest head collegiate coaches in the nation, is finishing up her degree at the University of Maryland after a standout career for the Terrapins which included a 2010 national championship. Poist excelled as a defender for Maryland, helping her squad to three consecutive Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season and tournament titles. Poist was named as a member of the All-Tournament team at the NCAA Final Four after Maryland’s run to the national semifinals in 2009. The following year, Poist led the Terrapins in ground balls in helping the Terrapins to an NCAA national championship. In each of her final two years at Maryland, the Terrapins boasted the nation’s top defensive squad. Poist began her collegiate playing career at the University of Louisville, where she led the nation with 56 caused turnovers and was 10th in NCAA Division I with 54 ground balls. She also scored 14 goals with eight assists for 22 total points in garnering All-Rookie team honors from WomensLacrosse.com for the Cardinals.

In addition to her vast playing experience, Poist has served as a head and assistant coach at the club level since the age of 13. Poist is currently employed as the director of lacrosse at Champions Field House in Rockville, Md. There, she aids in the development of lacrosse leagues, camps and tournaments, and also serves as the head coach for the Jackals club lacrosse squad. I’m so excited to have this opportunity, said Poist. From the moment I set foot on the McKendree campus I felt that the athletic program was heading in a great direction. They (school officials) were very supportive of the direction they wanted the lacrosse program to go, and I wanted to be a part of that. The sport of lacrosse is really starting to take off in the Midwest, and this is a great time to tap into that talent and build our program on that base. Poist quickly defined her goals for the McKendree lacrosse program. We want to build a program that will not only be competitive, but one that the University and our fans can take pride in, said Poist. Playing at the Division II level will afford us the opportunity to attract talented student-athletes, and I believe we’ll be able to do that here at McKendree. One of our biggest goals in the short term will be to give back to the community. We want to teach and educate the community about the game of lacrosse, and that will give us the opportunity to build a fan base which is so important in this sport. Poist has already started her recruiting efforts while finishing up her degree requirements at Maryland. She will relocate to the Metro-East area after the new year.

This past weekend marked the beginning of the 2011 Women’s Lacrosse season and the road to Stony Brook is officially being paved. The reigning Champion Maryland Terrapins picked up where they left off last season with a dominating win over Richmond. Florida & UNC were tested in their first game of the season with an overtime win tipping in the Tar Heels favor. Stanford and Notre Dame had a back-and-forth game in Palo Alto & High Point kicked off their 1st season of Divison I lacrosse.
Florida vs. North Carolina
The most celebrated recruiting class in recent years opened their season in Chapel Hill on Saturday and almost pulled off an upset. The Gators were led by sophomore midfielder Kitty Cullen (4g). UNC looked as if it was still trying to find their identity after graduating 5 starters (4 All Americans). Adding to that, US team member & midfielder, Laura Zimmerman, did not play. The Heels started a young midfield line & Laura Maksym is a first-year starter in goal. UNC jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, but it was a back-and-forth battle from there on out. Ultimately, POY candidate, Corey Donohoe (4g) got it done for the Heels in this overtime match.
This was statement game for the Lady Gators. In just their second season they nearly defeated a top 5 opponent. They’ll have plently more opportunities to prove themselves as the season goes on. Their schedule includes a tough ALC conference (Northwestern, Vandy, OSU, Hopkins & Penn State) & non-conference matches with Georgetown & Syracuse in March.
Player to watch: Kitty Cullen
The young Florida team nearly pulled off a season opening upset & it was in large part due to Cullen’s efforts. The sophomore had 4 goals on 7 attempts. It looks like Florida will make waves this upcoming season & I expect Kitty to have a hand in that.
Ohio State vs. Duke
Welcome Back: Emma Hamm.
Hamm returned to the field for the Blue Devils on Saturday after suffering a season-ending injury in 2010. The red-shirt junior took the field alongside a talented group hoping to make it back to Championship weekend. The Duke offense was firing on all cylinders as eight different Blue Devils scored. They were led by Hamm’s (4g, 2a) & Christie Kaestner’s six points (3g, 3a). Hamm also registered 4 draw controls, 1 ground ball & 1 caused turnover in the matchup.
Alexis Venechanos kicked off her first season as the Buckeyes’ head coach. OSU was led by Alayna Markwordt’s 4 goals.
Player to watch: Emma Hamm
Keeping with the theme of this write up– I’m going with Hamm. She was an All American as a freshman and has battled with injuries over the past two years. It seems she’s back and healthier than ever as she led the Blue Devils to their first win of the season. Duke’s roster is deep and talented. This should be an exciting season in the ACC.
High Point vs. Virginia Tech
This game marked the beginning of an era at High Point, as the women’s lacrosse team kicked off their inaugural season with an 13-18 loss to visiting Virginia Tech. Maryland transfer, Grace Gaeng, paced the Panthers with 5 goals. The Hokies were led by Allie Emala’s 5 goals and 7 draw controls. Virginia Tech won the battle of the hustle stats, as they beat HPU in both ground balls (26-18) and draw controls (20-13). They also forced nine turnovers.
High Point returns to action against Cincinnati on Sunday, February 20th.
Player to watch: Grace Gaeng
The UMD transfer started off her career at High Point on the right foot as she scored on 5 of her 6 attempts on Saturday.
Maryland vs. Richmond
Reloaded: Terps in 2011.
After losing arguably the most talented senior class in the nation, which included the Tewaaraton Trophy Winner/National Midfield of the Year & the National Defender of the Year, the Terps picked up right where they left off on Sunday and showed why they currently hold the #1 spot in both polls. Karri Ellen Johnson (7g, 1a) & Sarah Mollison (2g, 6a) led the way with career-high performances. Katie Schwarzmann had 5 goals on the day. Johnson and Schwarzmann also combined for 10 draw controls. Mary Flowers led the way for Richmond with 3 goals.
Player to watch: Katie Gallagher (2 GB, 3 CT)
With the departure of Karissa Taylor, Katie Gallagher returns to the field after a redshirt year to lead the Terp defense. She is warmly complimented by Brittany Poist (3 DC). The two create a solid shut-down defense that will once again make Maryland a force to be reckoned with on the defensive end.
Notre Dame vs. Stanford
The match up intrigued me heading into the weekend, as I see both teams climbing the ranks as the season progresses. Seniors Shaylyn Blaney, Kailene Abt, Kaitlin Keena & Jackie Doherty have all had decorated careers in South Bend & are going to make a splash in the Big East this year. Stanford, last year’s MPSF conference champion, earned a bid to the big dance and ultimately were sent home after a disappointing first round loss at James Madison. On that note, much of that team has returned to Palo Alto.
On Sunday, Emily Boeri led a very balanced Stanford attack with 3 goals. But, it was redshirt senior Lauren Schmidt who scored the unassisted game-winner with 4:36 left to play. Stanford jumped out to an early 4-0 lead, but Notre Dame fought back (they always do) and took the lead in the 2nd half. It was a battle from beginning to end as both teams opened their season over the weekend. I expect both Stanford and Notre Dame to move up in the rankings this season.
Player to watch: Lauren Scmidt
The redshirt senior is back for her final season as a Cardinal. The lefty midfielder has US team experience and has always been Stanford’s go-to player in clutch situations.
Northridge girls roll past Central – News – Tuscaloosa News
By Andrew CarrollSports Writer
Jan 23, 2008 at 12:07 AM
TUSCALOOSA | The Northridge Lady Jaguars cooled off after their 21-point first quarter, but their defensive effort remained constant.
Lauren Poist scored 13 points on Tuesday in leading Northridge to a 59-28 victory at Central.
Ericka Russell, a senior guard and Northridges leading scorer with a 22-point average, finished with seven points, but the Lady Jaguars still won handily.
Kiarra Rice, Josey Stappenbeck and Kiara Burch scored six points each.
I thought we played really good team ball, said Northridge coach Lytrice Washington, whose team led 21-7 at the end of the first quarter. We looked to distribute the ball to a lot of people, and we had some people step up offensively.
Poist led the Lady Jaguars with seven rebounds and five steals. Russell dished out five assists.
We want everyone to be an offensive threat, Washington said. If someone is not hitting, we still need to have people stepping up and we did that tonight.
Brittany Lewis led Central with 11 points. Jawannica Treadwell finished with eight.
Central coach Jim Holland said he assigned Jalesia Howell to cover Russell.
We wanted to play a triangle defense, but we didnt check anybody, Holland said. One girl, I believe, did a good job on Russell, but the rest of them were just watching. It was the worst defensive game we had. It was the worst rebounding game we had, and we couldnt do anything offensively.
They did a good job offensively, and we didnt check a soul down inside there.
Northridge (21-3) led 30-15 at halftime and 45-19 by the end of the third quarter.
I thought we worked real hard on the defensive end, Washington said. We were real scrappy after each loose ball. It was a real good defensive effort, and it helped us out offensively. We got a few steals with our defense, and that was able to help our transition game.
Central (11-5) plays at home tonight against Greene County in a Class 4A, Area 8 game.
Northridge plays at home on Friday against Hillcrest in a Class 6A, Area 9 game.
NORTHRIDGE (59) | L. Poist 13, Baity 9, Russell 7, Rice 6, Stappenbeck 6, Burch 6, Wallace 4, B. Poist 4, Atmore 4.

90,000 Actress Brittany Murphy, on the eve of her death, was boozing on Rublevka
Famous Hollywood actress Brittany Murphy died suddenly after attending a secret party on Rublevka
Russian media claim that famous Hollywood actress Brittany Murphy died suddenly at a party after attending a secret party.
Actress Brittany Murphy passed away at the age of 32 at her home in Los Angeles on Sunday, December 20, writes The Hollywood Reporter.
No official cause of death has yet to be announced, an autopsy will be performed on December 21 or 22. It is known that the mother found the actress at about 8 am local time on the bathroom floor. All attempts at resuscitation on the way to the clinic were unsuccessful, and the fact of death from a heart attack was recorded at 10:04 am at the Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
According to Gazeta.Ru, on December 19, a few hours before her death, Brittany was in one of the mansions on Rublevka – at a private party with banker Igor Desyatnikov, where actress Milla Jovovich was also present. This information is confirmed by the guests of the event.
Igor Desyatnikov is the former owner and president of Soyuzobschemashbank, which was included in the list of 200 leading banks in Russia in the spring of 2004, but in January 2005 his license was revoked. The official reason for the withdrawal was “the credit institution’s failure to comply with federal laws governing banking and Bank of Russia regulations.”In addition, the Central Bank recorded in Soyuzobschemashbank “facts of significant unreliability of reporting data” and the inability to satisfy creditors’ claims.

The most famous girl in the films “Sin City”, “Girl, Interrupted”, “8 Mile”, “Don’t Say a Word”, where her partner was Michael Douglas himself.
For 2010, four more tapes with Brittany’s participation were planned for release, including the global project of Sylvester Stallone “Unfazed”.It is not known how the further fate of the films will develop: in all of them, except for “The Imperturbable”, the actress played the main roles.
“Today the world has lost a ray of light. My deepest condolences to Brittany’s family, her husband and her amazing mother Sharon … See you on the other side, baby”, – her friend, actor Ashton Kutcher, wrote on Twitter.

Unlike other food photographers, Brittany Wright ( Brittany Wright ) does not just shoot mouth-watering products, but organizes them into gradient, rainbow compositions, carefully choosing the degree of ripeness of fruits and vegetables, their varieties and shapes.Why order in Brittany Wright’s kitchen appears in amazing still lifes. She named a series of their photographs – “ Wright Kitchen” (Wright Kitchen).
The author of an unusual fruit and vegetable coloring explains his hobby as follows:
“I want everyone to pay attention to how their food looks, how great the food really is. I see food as an art and an opportunity to do something creative. “
Indeed, in Brittany’s pictures, fresh carrots from the garden and withered or overripe fruits turn into a colored rainbow.
Most of the time, the creation of new compositions is occupied by searching the market for suitable products, the colors of which inspire the girl to create new works.
Sometimes she uses other products for her compositions, changing their tonality artificially or using natural shades.

The story of an American woman who tried all the methods of treatment and decided on euthanasia: Books: Culture: Lenta.ru
Death has accompanied life since the beginning of time, but this does not mean that there are no changes in the process of dying …Modern Death: How Medicine Changed Leaving Life is a book by a young American physician, Haider Warrich, about how all aspects of the end of human life have changed as a result of advances in modern medicine: from what we die, when we die, where we die and how we die. The book was published as part of the publishing program of the Polytechnic Museum and is part of the “Polytechnic Books” series. With the permission of the publishing house Alpina Non-Fiction, Lenta.ru publishes a fragment of the text devoted to the debate around the law on euthanasia.
Brittany Maynard, who lived in the suburbs of San Francisco, had headaches shortly after the wedding. Headache is an extremely common symptom: we rarely manage to live without it for any length of time, sometimes even a day without access to coffee. Many of us have never had a heart attack, stroke, or even a urinary tract infection (especially men) in our long lives, but almost everyone has a headache at one point or another. Of the nearly 40 million American patients who complain of recurrent headaches over the course of a year, very few are associated with life-threatening cancer.After a thorough examination, which included an MRI of the brain, it turned out that Brittany was one of them.
She did what any other patient with a potentially curable form of cancer would do in her place – she underwent neurosurgery, which involved the removal of part of the bones of her skull. Nevertheless, the woman had a relapse, and this time she was already in the incurable fourth stage. With or without treatment, patients with this diagnosis live for less than a year. “After months of searching for a solution, my family and I came to a difficult conclusion,” she wrote.”There is no cure that can keep me alive, and the recommended methods will make the months I have left unbearable.” She considered traditional hospice palliative care, but felt that she “could develop morphine-resistant pain, as well as personality changes, verbal, cognitive and motor impairments of almost any kind.” As a result, she decided not to cede control of her death to either the disease or the doctors. Brittany and her family packed their bags and headed to Oregon.
– I want to die on my own terms.
Oregon’s journey to becoming the first American state to legalize physician assisted suicide began in the 1990s, when the struggle for the right to die was at its most intense and challenging. Since the publication of “It’s Over, Debbie” in 1988 and the first suicide orchestrated by Jack Kevorkian in 1990, physician assisted euthanasia and suicide have been hotly debated at medical conferences, legislatures, courts, and in American society itself.In 1994, by a small margin of 2.6 percent, Oregon’s voters made it the first state to allow terminally ill patients to commit suicide with the assistance of a doctor.

Almost immediately, even before anyone could exercise this right, a federal judge imposed an injunction on this, citing his decision by the fact that the law was passed did not provide those wishing to use them on an equal basis with the rest of the population “protection from suicide.”However, this ban was lifted in 1997, and lawful suicide with the help of a doctor finally appeared in the United States.
Oregon’s regulations were very similar to those applied in other parts of the world. Applicant may be an adult over 18 years of age who can make medical decisions, who lives in Oregon and has a terminal illness with a life expectancy of less than six months. A patient who meets all of these criteria is required to make one written request for a lethal dose of the drug, certified by two witnesses, and make two verbal requests to the prescribing physician.
This doctor must make sure that there is an incurable disease and that the patient has less than six months to live. Another colleague should give a similar conclusion. If any of them suspects that the patient is incapacitated or has some kind of psychiatric illness, they are referred to a psychiatrist. After informing the patient of other possible alternatives, doctors are also required to inquire if the patient wants to notify any of his immediate family members.
In a debate where almost no one ever agreed to a compromise, Oregon’s Death with Dignity Act had the effect of a bomb.Polls conducted in the 1990s showed that the vast majority of medical professionals opposed physician assisted suicide and euthanasia. Physicians of some religious beliefs (Jews and those who do not associate themselves with any religion) were more open to the idea of euthanasia, but still most of them were still opposed. While Oregon doctors were more likely to support the law, medical professionals in other states were much more skeptical.
However, surveys have shown that American doctors are constantly receiving requests for euthanasia from their patients and that a small percentage of them agree to this, despite the illegality of such actions.A nationwide study found that about 5 percent of American doctors injected patients with lethal doses of drugs, compared with 7 percent in Oregon. A survey of ICU nurses also showed that one in five of them injected a patient with a lethal dose of medication at his request, with the express intent of ending his life.
Since euthanasia and its variations remained banned, and its perpetrators could be charged with unlawful deprivation of life, it is very likely that these polls underestimated the prevalence of such a practice – but most observers were still very surprised.
On the other hand, the general public, although more sympathetic, still seemed to be divided into two equal camps. The category that most decisively stands for the legalization of euthanasia or suicide with the assistance of a doctor has always been and will be the few to whom these issues are most directly related – patients with incurable diseases.
For me, this is the most important group of the population in this discussion, but it is she who often fails to participate in the discussion.Patients with terminal illnesses are outnumbered by both the general public and the medical community. In addition, due to their diagnosis, they are often unable to operate outside the hospital, nursing home or hospice, where they spend most of their time.
When physician assisted suicide finally became legal in Oregon, many believed that the state would become a veritable last resort for patients flocking there from all over the country in an attempt to take control of the end of their lives.

Another concern, perhaps more justified, was that the main victims of this initiative would be economically disadvantaged patients – members of national minorities and patients without insurance, who cannot afford full treatment and will be forced to choose this path. Unlike the Netherlands, where everyone has health insurance, in Oregon at the time the law was passed, there were about half a million non-residents.
Extensive data gathered in the sixteen years since the law came into force in 1997 has largely allayed these concerns. During this period, 1,173 patients applied for a lethal dose of drugs, and two thirds of them (752 people) used this prescription.
We are talking about a few cases for every 10 thousand deaths. The average age of these patients is 71 years, and 77 percent of them were in the range from 55 to 85 years. Only six, like Brittany Maynard, were under 35.The vast majority of patients who took advantage of the law are white (97.3 percent), had health insurance (98.3 percent), died at home (95.3 percent), received palliative care (90.1 percent), had completed secondary education ( 94.1 percent) and had cancer (79.8 percent).
About half of them were men (52.7 percent), were married (46.2 percent), had a university degree (45.6 percent) and died without a doctor (44.7 percent). It is noteworthy that since 1997, only one such patient has died in hospital.Despite fears that vulnerable populations would be more likely to commit suicide with the assistance of a doctor, only 12 uninsured people and one African American have committed euthanasia in Oregon.
What motivates terminally ill Oregonians to make this decision? The top three reasons cited by patients are: loss of independence (91.4 percent), lack of opportunities to do things that bring joy (88.9 percent), and loss of self-esteem (80.9 percent).Inadequate medication for pain relief was cited as a cause by only 23.7 percent of those surveyed. Quite surprising considering that 65 to 85 percent of advanced cancer patients experience severe pain. This is important because many critics of physician assisted suicide consider any such decision to be a reflection of deficiencies in palliative care and pain management. However, as the Dutch experience has shown, the legalization of euthanasia has only emphasized the importance of palliative care, which has made doctors more aware of their duty to dying patients.
It has been suggested that most requests for euthanasia are driven by depression. But research in Oregon shows that depression is one of the least important factors that lead patients to make this decision. Sometimes it’s just about getting the prescribed drugs. “Once the drugs were in my possession,” Brittany wrote, “I was incredibly relieved.” A third of patients do not even use the drugs they receive, and the rest do it sometimes quite a long time (from 15 to 1009 days) after applying for a lethal dose.

When Oregon first permitted suicide with the assistance of a doctor, opponents of this decision very often drew parallels with Nazi experiments. Now we can confidently assert that there are few places in the world where death is better than in Oregon, and this applies not only to those who choose to commit suicide. Rather than being a warning against the slippery slope of eugenics, Oregon has served as a model for several other states.In 2008, Washington State voters passed a law similar to Oregon, also legalizing physician-assisted suicide.
The state of Montana was next, where in 2009 the Supreme Court ruled that there was no law prohibiting doctors from helping patients to hasten their own deaths. In 2013, the Vermont State Congress passed the Patient Choice and End-of-Life Control Act, which is similar to those mentioned above. More recently, in 2016, California did the same, and outside the US, Canada passed a death assistance law.

A few days before Brittany Maynard’s death, many began to think that she had changed her mind. In a video posted on October 29, 2014, she says, “I laugh and smile so much with my family and friends that now seems like the wrong time.” After hearing this, I wrote her an email asking her to describe her psychological state.I received no answer, and on November 2 there was news that Brittany had committed suicide, as she had intended.
“Bye, world. Share good energy. If you were helped, help someone else, ”she posted this latest status on her Facebook page. Five states have already legalized physician assisted suicide, but there are 45 others where it is illegal, and even in these five, it is still used by only an absolute minority of patients.
