RALEIGH, N.C. - The first day of play at the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association Softball Championship featured intense competition among eight teams. After eight games over the course of the morning and afternoon, six teams live to see another day at Walnut Creek Softball Complex.
In the first round of play , Bowie State jumped to a 5-0 lead in the top of the first inning against Saint Augustine’s with Nicoleen Ochoa’s RBI bunt single, Jacqueline Pickering’s two-run double and Deanna Matlock’s two-run single.
Marley Parker’s three-run homerun gave the Lady Falcons an offensive spark. Saint Augustine’s continued the momentum in the bottom of the second with five runs off seven hits capped by Jasmine Rios’ two-run homerun. The Lady Falcons added one run in the fourth, fifth and sixth to pull away 11-5.
The Lady Bulldogs added one run in the top of the seventh following a solo homerun by Cassandra Clayborne, but it was not enough to overcome the deficit.
In elimination play, Bowie State (14-18) wasted little time in the morning contest against Fayetteville State University. The Lady Bulldogs took advantage of Danielle Watt’s RBI double and a Lady Bronco error in the top of the first to take an early 2-0 lead. Pickering’s sacrifice fly in the top of the third pushed Bowie State ahead 3-0.
Fayetteville State (16-14) plated two runs in their final at-bat, one with Ivory Gladden's fielder's choice and another on Alex Wickham's RBI single through the right side. Fortunately for Bowie State, Ochoa got FSU’s Brittany Freeman to pop out to end the game and the Lady Broncos season.
Clayborne and Ochoa led Bowie State overall over the two games, pounding out five hits each and scored a combined five runs. Watt accounted for four hits while Matlock and junior Caitlin O’Neill recorded three hits apiece.
Chowan University and Saint Augustine’s University both secured a spot in semifinal play while four teams will battle for two remaining semifinal slots. Winston-Salem State University and Virginia Union University will compete for a spot in (5/1) semifinals at .

Discover Cancer Up to a Decade
Before Most Doctors Would Know
You may go to great lengths to protect yourself from cancer by your diet, health and lifestyle choices.
Even so, this is no guarantee of success. Many people who lead very healthy lifestyles can and do succumb to this disease.
But what if there was an early warning system, a way of finding cancer within a few months of when the earliest cells form, establish themselves, and start to grow.
If this were possible it would give you up to ten years or more to strangle the beast (metaphorically speaking, of course) -- long before conventional tests would ever be able to detect it.
This issue talks about a way to do that. . .

Can This “Blood of Plant Life”
Starve Out Cancer?
They may not have had indoor plumbing, but some ancient civilizations got a lot of things right—at least when it came to using food as a medicine to care for your body. Take wheatgrass, for example. You can trace it back 5,000 years to ancient Egypt, where it was used to promote health and vitality. Wheat grass may have even been used in early Mesopotamia.
As far as the Western world goes, wheatgrass didn’t become popular till the 1930s. At that time, it came into the spotlight thanks to the efforts of a fellow named Charles Schnabel (he was acclaimed the “father of wheatgrass” for his labors). Ann Wigmore, founder of the Hippocrates Health Institute and an advocate of the raw food diet, was also a strong supporter.
So today I want to talk about why wheatgrass juice has become such a phenomenon and whether it really can help you treat or prevent cancer.

Marsh selected to attend NCAA Career in Sports Forum
BALTIMORE – Coppin State sophomore sprinter Alexis Marsh was selected to attend the Career in Sports Forum to be held at the NCAA national office in Indianapolis from .
The Career in Sports Forum, an annual educational forum hosted by the NCAA, brings together 200 selected student-athletes to learn and explore potential careers in sports, with the primary focus on intercollegiate athletics. The unique, four-day forum is designed to assist student-athletes in charting their career paths, as well as provide an opportunity to network and learn from current athletics professionals.
“I am extremely happy to have been chosen to be part of this program,” Marsh said. “It means a lot that I can see all that athletics has to offer beyond being a collegiate student-athlete. I am a criminal justice major but I love sports way too much to leave it alone. If I don’t work in the criminal justice field then I would love to be a track coach or an Athletics Director.”
Marsh is a key member of the Coppin State women’s track and field program. The Ajax, Ontario, Canada native has run on the Eagles’ 4 x 400-meter relay teams, earning All-MEAC honors this past indoor season in the event. The Eagles relay team finished second at the MEAC Championships.
During the indoor season, Marsh helped the 4 x 400-meter relay team finish sixth at the ECAC Championship meet. The Eagles' time of 3:45.13 was the third fastest time in the indoor 4 x 4 in Coppin State history. Currently this outdoor season, the Eagles 4 x 400-meter relay team has the second fastest time in the event of 3:43.47.
Known for her consistently changing hairstyles, sparkling smile and pleasant personality, Marsh is looking forward to the opportunity to network with peers, exchange ideas with key NCAA leaders as well as spend a little time in the Midwest.
“Coppin State has taught me how to be more disciplined athletically,” Marsh said. “I have always been focused but I really needed to keep myself grounded and continuously remind myself of the reason why I am here. A lot of student-athletes applied for the program. I am blessed, humbled and happy that I was selected.”

Is This 'Nature's Perfect Food' or a Banquet for Hormone-Related Cancers?
The cancer returned for the fifth time.
After radical mastectomy, thirty-five doses of radiotherapy and twelve chemotherapy sessions, the battle was lost as far as her oncologist was concerned. 42-year-old scientist Jane Plant was given only three months to live.
That was 28 years ago. Today Jane, professor of geochemistry at Imperial College London, is free of cancer.
As she states in her book Your Life in Your Hands, "Having no alternative but to die or find a way out myself, I decided to find a way out. I determined to take control of my situation using my training as a natural scientist." This was her way out. . . .
HAMPTON, Va. - Bowie State University head track and field coach Michelle Latimer has been selected CIAA Men's Coach of the Week.
