Spring practice opens

Miami opened up for spring practices Tuesday with many positions open for competition, including quarterback.

Despite compiling the No. 1-ranked recruiting class according to ESPN, only 10 new players participated. These students enrolled early. The rest of the class will come together for summer practice.

“Practice was good today,” head coach Randy Shannon said. “We went out there and didn’t have any illegal procedures from the offense. We didn’t have any fumbled snaps during the quarterback-center exchange and that was great.”

Steinbruch, Macdonald to participate in U-20 national team

Freshmen Brittany Steinbruch and Brittany Macdonald have been chosen to join the U.S. Under-20 National Team to compete at the Cyprus Women’s Cup 2008.

Steinbruch and Macdonald were part of a team that led Miami to its second NCAA tournament appearance in the program’s 10-year history. The competition, taking place on the Mediterranean nation of Cyprus, will welcome teams from the U.S., Scotland, Canada, Russia, Japan and the Netherlands.

“I am very proud of these young women for creating an opportunity to make the U-20 national team,” Miami head coach Tricia Taliaferro said. “During the recruiting process both expressed the desire to play at the next level and believed Miami had the environment to help them achieve that goal.”
