(Photo: BILLY HEYEN)By BILLY HEYENPITTSFORD, N.Y. — At the end of Tuesday’s third quarter, Pittsford Mendon called a last-second play. Its individual outcome wouldn’t affect the Vikings’ sectional quarterfinal contest, which was well in hand. But it gave the Mendon starters a chance to stay sharp with another win-or-go home game in less than 48 hours.Jacob Shadders dribbled left toward Jackson Green at the top of the key, as if to hand the ball off. No exchange occurred, though, and as Shadders continued left, Green sliced around the backside of the defense, totally uncovered. It was an easy pitch, catch and finish for the Mendon duo.“That’s something we’ve put in,” Shadders said. “Jackson’s getting his hops up this season… We trust him to go up and get it, and it’s a good play design.”Slick end of third quarter play by @mendonbball — @jacob_shadders with his seventh dime to @Jacksongreen236, who’s up to 18 like Shadders.Mendon up 66-33 after three on Churchville with a date with Leadership awaiting Thursday. @PickinSplinters— Billy Heyen (@BillyHeyen) March 10, 2021Top-seeded Pittsford Mendon controlled proceedings from start to finish in an 84-46 win over eight-seed Churchville-Chili on Tuesday night. Shadders and Green led the Vikings with 18 points apiece, and Luke Hoyser joined them in double figures with 11.Almost as important, the Vikings felt they’d maintained focus from beginning to end. It may not have mattered Tuesday, but with fourth-seeded Leadership Academy’s Mo McKinney and Sean Smith on the docket for a Thursday night Class A1 semifinal, every good game rep mattered.“It should be a fun matchup,” Shadders said. “One I’ve been looking forward to for a long time, and it’s gonna be a big one Thursday night to go to the Section V championship, and I’m ready to go.”MORE: Rush-Henrietta advances to Class AA semifinalMendon snagged early momentum Tuesday by dominating on the defensive end. The Vikings have spoken time and again this season about their identity starting with defense, and it was on display against the Saints.In one first half sequence, Mendon nabbed steals on three consecutive possessions. The first, Shadders took his own steal for a left-handed lay-in. The next, Green finished off his own takeaway for an and-one. And while the third didn’t lead as directly to a bucket, the Vikings cashed a 3 off that one, too.“We know that our good defense leads to offense,” Mendon head coach Bob Nally said. “We’re gonna get deflections, we’re gonna get steals and that leads to transition points… When we play good defense, we play good offense.”7 quick points for @jacob_shadders. @mendonbball up 11-5 before FT. @PickinSplinters @PCSDAthletics— Billy Heyen (@BillyHeyen) March 10, 2021Helping the Vikings’ defensive cause more than he could early in the season was Caleb Lewis. The 6-foot-2 wing missed time with an injury to start the year, but he’s worked back to full health and joined Mendon’s starting lineup Tuesday.Lewis scored all eight of his points after halftime, but even in the first half, he added length and energy to a Vikings team firing on all cylinders. Mendon brought Kidder Lindley off the bench Tuesday for matchup reasons, Nally said, but he also added it feels like he’s now got six starters to choose from.“Caleb makes us different,” Shadders said. “… He makes us deeper, which helps us out in this COVID year when you’re playing back to backs, playing so constantly. Caleb’s just another guy we can plug in there who can do it all.”And-1 for @calebllewis for @mendonbball. @PickinSplinters— Billy Heyen (@BillyHeyen) March 10, 2021At the offensive end, things were made easier for Mendon by Green’s increased passing vision. Nally praised it earlier in the season, and in the third quarter, Green dished out three assists in a three-minute span.One of those came off a hop step to set up Brady Miller for a bucket, and another lined Hoyser up for a triple.“(Jackson’s) so smooth,” Hoyser said. “Gets to the basket super easily, makes things happen. Great eyes, great passer.”The 3 from @LukeHoyser has @mendonbball up 60-27 with 2:46 left in the third. @PickinSplinters— Billy Heyen (@BillyHeyen) March 10, 2021Shadders and Green got the final 6:31 of game action off, resting up with the quick turnaround to Thursday night in mind. Shadders did expend a bit more energy, though.A timeout was called with 91 seconds left, and Shadders rose from his seat near the corner of the court and walked around high-fiving or fist-bumping every Mendon player and coach not involved in the timeout huddle. The Vikings’ message heading into the sectional tournament was the same many teams have, Nally said: “One game at a time.” Shadders, Green, Hoyser and the rest of the Vikings took care of the first “one game,” and now Mendon’s got two more between itself and a sectional trophy.“Anything can happen,” Nally said. “We just want to stay focused. We like our chances, and we’re excited to be competing and playing for a block.”Scoring totalsPittsford Mendon: Jacob Shadders (18), Jackson Green (18), Luke Hoyser (11), Caleb Lewis (8), Kidder Lindley (7), Will Connors (6), Brady Miller (5), Conner Rook (5), Eric Krowl (4), Connor Memmott (2)Churchville-Chili: Davi Pride (11), Joaquon Thomas (11), Jason Gibbs (9), Robert Munding (4), Gideon Todd (3), Caleb Smith (2), Justin Meister (2), Collin Curley (2)  Churchville-Chili basketball, Jackson Green, Jacob Shadders, Pittsford Mendon basketball Pittsford Mendon takes care of business in quarterfinal win added by Billy Heyen on March 9, 2021View all posts by Billy Heyen →FacebookTwitter分享by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksSponsor ContentAirPhysioThis All-Natural “Lung Cleaning” Device Helps Anyone Breathe EasierAirPhysioUndoTop Expat InsuranceExpat Living in Hong Kong without Health Insurance?Top Expat InsuranceUndoBig Data Courses | Search AdBig Data Online Courses Might Be More Fun Than You ThinkBig Data Courses | Search AdUndoby Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksMore from Pickin’ SplintersBaron keeps Bonaventure close to his heart – Pickin’ SplintersUndoTah-Jae Hill, Zion Morrison and the Starting Five – Pickin’ SplintersUndo”If you had a Mount Rushmore of MCC baseball, he’s on there.” Longtime assistant Jack Christensen passes away – Pickin’ SplintersUndo By Billy Heyen on March 9, 2021No Comment last_img read more

An easy way to save on your healthcare in 2017

first_imgAn easy way to save on your healthcare in 2017If you’re like most people, there are a few times a year when you sit down to review your expenses – your cable bill, entertainment expenses and grocery receipts, for example – and try to figure out where you and your family can save money.One item you should consider is your healthcare costs in 2017. Since the fall season marks the beginning of the annual open enrollment period for employees, now is the perfect time to sign up for a new health benefit plan or make changes to your current plan.Offered as part of those benefits, Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs) are two simple ways for people to save money in the New Year. An FSA, which is provided by your employer, allows you to save funds for eligible healthcare expenses. An HSA – which you can obtain on your own or through your employer – is a tax-advantaged savings account that allows you to set aside money to cover medical expenses throughout your lifetime.A major advantage of both accounts is that individuals may use the full amount of their pre-tax dollars toward the care you and your family may need; employees who enroll in an FSA can contribute a portion of their salary pre-tax to pay for qualified medical or dependent care expenses, while an HSA helps individuals with qualifying high-deductible health plans pay for current and future medical expenses.The number of HSA accounts has risen to 18.2 million in 2016, a 25 percent increase since 2015, according to Devenir Research. In addition, according to the 2016 Flexible Spending Account and Health Savings Account Consumer Research study commissioned by Visa and conducted by C+R Research, 90 percent of FSA users agree that saving money, since contributions are pre-tax, tops their list of reasons for having an FSA. In fact, 40 percent of FSA users claim they would cut back on their medical expenses if they didn’t have an FSA.The study also finds that an FSA with no carryover option represents an important barrier to adoption amongst employees, who fear losing their unused dollars at the end of the plan year. 60 percent of non-FSA users noted they would sign up for this benefit if their employer offered the option to carryover up to $500 of their unused health FSA balances remaining at the end of the plan year.One of the most convenient ways to access funds in an HSA or FSA is with a Visa Healthcare Card, which allows employees to use funds in their HSA or FSA to pay for qualified medical expenses wherever Visa debit cards are accepted, making it easy to pay for expenses such as:*Copays and deductibles*Prescriptions*Dentist visits: Cleanings, orthodontia, dentures*Exams: Physicals, dermatologist*Vision care, including exams, new glasses, LASIK*Hearing exams and aids*Medical equipment such as blood pressure monitors, thermometers*Smoking cessation programsFor added convenience, most pharmacies, grocery stores and other retailers that sell healthcare products have the capability to distinguish between covered items and non-covered items when you pay for them, so you don’t have to wonder whether something is covered or not.By using a Visa Healthcare Card at these locations, you no longer have to pay out-of-pocket and then submit receipts to be reimbursed for your medical expenses, saving you time and money!There’s a reason why 78 percent of FSA users surveyed report having an FSA card and why 52 percent of HSA owners surveyed say they use a debit card linked to their HSA to pay for their medical expenses, as the 2016 Flexible Spending Account and Health Savings Account Consumer Research study commissioned by Visa and conducted by C+R Research found. As you review your options this open enrollment season, ask your employer if they offer an HSA or FSA with a Visa Healthcare Card to provide easy access to your funds. To learn more, visit read more

Another young driver wins first feature at Off Road

first_imgBy Randy PospishilNORFOLK, Neb. (Aug. 8) – A week after Gage Koch, a junior at Norfolk Catholic High School, won his first feature in the Hobby Stock division at Off Road Speedway, Joey Haase – who will be en­tering his junior year at Winside High School this fall – earned his first win in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod division Saturday night.The two have crossed paths on a racetrack before as competitors for two seasons in the now-defunct junior hornet class at Riviera Raceway a few years ago.Haase won the division title in their first year of racing, while Koch won the second year.Haase took advantage of his outside second row starting position along with the race’s second caution and restart to obtain the lead, then held off pursuer Justin Addison for the final 13 laps of the 18-lap race.“These last few weeks I’ve had a lot of bad luck. We went through two transmissions in the last two nights and seven DNFs,” Haase said. “It’s been a bad year for us, so to get this win is really awesome.”Addison was second and Troy Bruns finished third.TeJay Mielke took the front spot from Cameron Wilkinson with four laps remaining and built a secure lead en route to the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock win. Wilkinson fought off Tiffany Bittner and Nate DeSive for second.After just a three-car field a week ago, due to drivers having family obligations–and an agreement among those three drivers not to include last week’s race results in the points race–10 cars took the track on Saturday night in the IMCA Stock Cars “A” feature.Shawn Primrose out-raced Jason Wilkinson and Chad Bruns to the checkered flag for the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car win.Lance Mielke got to the front midway through the 12-lap race and sped away from the pack for his third local Mach-1 Sport Compact victory this season.last_img read more
