The ship remained off the east coast of Africa for the greater part of its more than 200 days at sea. Crew members conducted maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts there in support of national objectives.In addition to the mission at sea, the ship and crew conducted seven port visits in support of maritime partnerships with Italy, Spain, Seychelles, Mauritius, and Djibouti.

Emanuela Ferrentino, an Italian navy officer, who was assigned to the ship through a personnel exchange program. She served as the assistant navigator and navigation division officer. Through her tireless efforts, she not only qualified to lead the bridge team as officer of the deck, but went on to earn her Surface Warfare Officer pin.“Lt. j.g. Ferrentino has been a vital part of our navigation team and I am proud to have pinned her as one of the U.S. Navy’s newest Surface Warfare Officers,” said Cmdr. Heidi Haskins, commanding officer.During their time at sea, many Sailors excelled on an individual level, helping one another achieve various watchstanding and warfare qualifications. Among their many accomplishments and career milestones, 113 Sailors earned their Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist qualification, 21 Sailors reenlisted, and 71 advanced in rate. Additionally, nine officers were pinned as Surface Warfare Officers.“This deployment was everything I thought it would be, challenging, trying and successful,” said Operations Specialist 1st Class Brandon Dorsey.James E.

Gough’s 67 sets the pace at the Reid Trophy

first_img2 Aug 2016 Gough’s 67 sets the pace at the Reid Trophy England’s Conor Gough set the first round pace in the Reid Trophy with a score of three-under 67 on a drizzly day at Porters Park Golf Club in Hertfordshire. The 13-year old heads an international leaderboard in the English U14 boys’ open championship, with players from the Czech Republic, Spain, France and Ireland among those in the top 10. But Gough, from Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire, is leading a strong English challenge. Closest to him is Luis Witherall from Cherwell Edge in Northamptonshire, who beat par in competition for the first time today with his 69. Cheshire’s Oscar Doran (Delamere Forest) shares third place on level par while Dominic Clemons from Gog Magog in Cambridgeshire shot one-over 71 and is in a group of five sharing seventh place. Gough (?Image © Leaderboard Photography) set the standard early in the day with a round which included four birdies and just one bogey. “I’m very pleased, I was hoping for about level par, so this is much better – but it’s only the first round,” he said. He came into this event in fine form, having just won the U15 Douglas Johns Trophy by three shots and finished in the top 10 at last month’s English U16 championship for the McGregor Trophy. Today, he started on the 10th and got off to a quick start with two birdies in his first three holes. After a steady string of pars he got to three-under on the first, a short par four of 254 yards where his drive with a three wood went 30 yards through, but his chip back finished within a foot of the hole. Another birdie on the fourth – where he holed from 25ft – got him to four under, but a wayward drive which finished in the trees on the seventh cost him his only bogey. Witherall came in towards the end of the day with his 69, remarking: “I was hitting greens and two-putting most of the time, but when I missed the greens I got up and down a lot. I kept my head after a bad shot and just moved on from it.” He has worked hard towards this event and added: “I’ve been practising really hard for this and today it’s paid off.” Cheshire’s Oscar Doran (Delamere Forest) is in a group of four players who scored level par 70 today, putting together a remarkably steady round. He started with birdies on the first and second and then had 13 straight pars before dropping a couple at the end of his round. “I finished bogey, par, bogey which was quite disheartening, but I’ll take level par,” said Doran who is the Cheshire U14 and U16 champion. Good driving was the key to his scoring and when he did hit a wayward one into the trees on 17 he still had the answer, hooking his second around the trouble and onto the green to set up a par. Among the others sharing third place is Casey Jarvis of South Africa, who has made the trip to play this event and the Scottish U14 championship and has arrived in good form. He matched five birdies with bogeys and said afterwards: “I’m happy overall. I wanted to be in contention going into the second round. “I played pretty good, I missed a few greens on the back nine but I was hitting my driver really well and my putting was good. The rain was difficult at one point but I played my way through it.” After tomorrow’s second round the field of 144 competitors will be cut to the leading 70 players and ties who will play the final 18 holes on Thursday.

For the first time in history of UEFA Champions League, all 16 teams entering the knockout stage come from one of Europe’s top-five leagues as there will be no minnows taking part in march to the final in Istanbul. Let’s have a look at the top teams and what they have in store for us this week.Advertisement Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool F.C. – Liverpool FC will visit the scene of their latest conquest, Metropolitano, where they won their 6th UEFA Champions League title, in the first leg of their last-16 clash against the defensive powerhouse Atletico Madrid. While they both play at seemingly opposite ends of the footballing-style spectrum, i.e. “heavy metal scoring” vs “defend defend defend”, Liverpool and Atletico Madrid share some similarities as they both play with an intensity that is hard to match. The teams have not met since the 2009/10 UEFA Europa League semi-finals but a lot has changed in the decade.Watch Atletico Madrid vs Liverpool F.C. Live and Exclusive on SONY TEN 2 and SONY TEN 2 HD on 19th February 2020 at 1.30 am (IST) Advertisement Borussia Dortmund vs Paris Saint Germain – Borussia Dortmund are one of the most exciting teams in European football right now, with a crop of talented youngsters driving their pursuit of a place in the latter stages of the Champions League. On the other side, PSG are a group of hyper-focused players who will go leaps and bounds to secure the one piece of silverware that has long eluded them. PSG come into this tie having won all but one of their six games in this season’s group stage while Dortmund has surprisingly steered through the group of death having picked up ten points in this season’s group stage to finish second behind Barcelona FC and eliminating Inter Milan. This clash truly paves way for the future stars like Erling Haaland, Jadon Sancho, Achraf Hakimi, and Kylian Mbappe to mark their stamp in this prestigious competition and take over the mantle from Messi and Ronaldo in the decade to come.Watch Borussia Dortmund vs Paris Saint Germain Live and Exclusive on SONY TEN 1 and SONY TEN 1 HD on 19th February 2020 at 1.30 am (IST) Tottenham Hotspur F.C. vs RB Leipzig – Both these teams have undergone managerial changes this season as Julian Nagelsmann took charge of the German club last July and is in midst of propelling them to their first league title while Jose Mourinho arrived at Spurs in November and has propelled them from 14th in the League to their current fifth-place position. This match may lack the star power of Dortmund vs. PSG or Real Madrid vs. Manchester City, but will be intriguing in its own quirky ways. The German outfit are mobile, dynamic, unpredictable and extremely confident but Mourinho is well versed in tough Champions League clashes and is a tactician of the highest order. All eyes will be on Timo Werner as the German has already expressed his desire to play in the top flight of the English division while Tottenham Hotspur will miss their talisman, Harry Kane, due to the hamstring injury he suffered early this year.Watch Tottenham Hotspur F.C. vs RB Leipzig Live and Exclusive on SONY TEN 2 and SONY TEN 2 HD on 20th February 2020 at 1.30 am (IST)UEFA Champions League is among India’s most loved football tournaments and has gained increasing popularity in the last few years.
