BREAKING: Lehigh sports on pause after on-campus cases

All Lehigh University athletics has been closed indefinitely with immediate effect, Athletic Director Joe Sterrett said in an email Tuesday to certain members of the Lehigh Athletics Community.

Later on Tuesday afternoon, the Lehigh COVID-19 response team alerted the campus about its first on campus COVID-19 cases.

The email from Sterrett said the decision to pause training and training was due to concerns following multiple positive COVID-19 cases across teams. The decision, which Sterrett said came from Lehigh’s COVID-19 response team, came after the teams began their third week of training.

A day later, on September 30th, the Welch Fitness Center announced it was closing for cleaning, with no reopening date announced.

Sterrett said he learned of this decision via email and currently has no further information.

“The level of contact tracing related to the few cases of COVID that we have experienced has clearly raised enough concern that the decision was made to shut us down,” Sterrett said in his email.

In the past two days, two on-campus students tested positive after reporting symptoms and four new cases from off-campus students, the COVID-19 Response Team wrote in its email to the campus community. The number of students in isolation and quarantine has also risen sharply, according to Lehigh’s COVID-19 dashboard.

One of the cases on campus had not been on campus since September 26 and notified the health and wellness center of the positive result on the evening of September 28.

Another student who lives on campus has moved into isolation.

“Those who came into close contact – defined by the CDC as 15 minutes or more within 1.80 meters – are currently being quarantined, will be relocated and tested if necessary,” the email said.

All positive cases will be investigated to determine if there is a risk of a major campus outbreak.

“We have seen a significant increase in the number of students who require quarantine,” said the COVID-19 response team. “Careful contact tracing has identified at least 60 close contacts as a result of these new COVID-19 cases, including cases related to multiple athletics programs.”

Close contacts have been identified and contacted, appropriately placed in quarantine and have been or will be tested shortly.

In a phone call today, Sterrett said there were two confirmed COVID-19 cases on the football team. He said he believed these players tested positive last week, which would therefore be different cases from what Lehigh said in the past two days. Sterrett said the two football cases were reported through the health center.

As of yesterday, Lehigh’s COVID-19 dashboard had only reported one new case for the week of September 21 through September 27 and one new case for the week of September 28 through October 4.

Sterrett said only the soccer players who were in direct contact groups were quarantined. Team members not exposed did not have to be quarantined.

“To those of our programs that have done everything we asked, and we have a number of them, I am deeply sorry,” Sterrett wrote in his email to certain members of the Lehigh Athletics Community.

That decision comes just two months after the Patriot League canceled Fall sports in response to the pandemic. At this point in time, the teams were still allowed to train and exercise in compliance with health and safety conditions.

Lehighs Surveillance tests Program that tests random samples of the non-remote student population started this week and will run through November.

The COVID information hotline 610-758-1500 has been re-established and is operational on September 29th from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm EDT and on September 30th from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm EDT.

“As a campus community, we must collectively take proactive steps to reduce the potential for the spread of COVID-19 on our campus and in our communities,” the COVID-19 Response Team said in its email.

Lehigh men’s basketball schedule unveiled by Patriot League

BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania – The Patriot League announced its 2020-21 men’s basketball schedule on Monday, which includes 16 games with a focus on opponents in close geographic proximity – in line with prioritizing health and safety amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Lehigh men’s basketball faces rivals Lafayette and Bucknell four times, while playing American, Colgate, Holy Cross and Loyola twice each. The Mountain Hawks don’t face Army West Point, Boston University, or Navy in the regular season. The schedule can change.

The Council of Presidents of the Patriot League endorsed a league-only schedule that would significantly reduce travel and overnight stays. No teams are allowed to fly to the games.

The league-wide schedule includes games against the same team on Saturday and Sunday (some weekends could be moved to Sunday and Monday to accommodate the league’s partnership with CBS Sports Network). Every weekend except Holy Cross (that’s two games at Holy Cross) features opposite sides. The Mountain Hawks open their season at home against Lafayette on January 2nd before playing at Lafayette on January 3rd. The following weekend, Lehigh receives American on January 9th and then travels to American on January 10th.

The Mountain Hawks end the regular season with weekends against Loyola and Colgate. The last weekend in February is reserved for make-up games should games be postponed. The Patriot League tournament is scheduled to begin on Wednesday March 6th. The full schedule can be found below or click here.

The exact times for all competitions will be announced.

Lehigh Athletics is currently working on all of the logistics for hosting home games under university guidelines and will provide details as they become available, including radio, television and streaming options.

Lehigh is returning a strong core from a team that finished last season in an impressive manner. The Mountain Hawks finished the year 6-3 in their last nine games, including victories over three of the later four Patriot League semi-final teams. Lehigh returns seven of his nine top scorers from one season, highlighted by Jeameril Wilson, who averaged 14.7 points and 7.6 rebounds in the last nine competitions.

Those who have debilitating cataracts and are experiencing financial hardship can qualify for the Quigley Cares program, a program that pays for the entire cataract surgery.

Quigley Eye Specialists Founder and Cataract Surgeon Dr. Thomas Quigley said when he was in high school his sister Cathy, who was in her mid-20s, developed a rare eye disease called uveitus, an autoimmune disease that attacks the tissues of the eye.

“We could never find out why she got this disease” he said, adding that they had traveled the country and his sister had 16 different eye surgeries. “Still, she went blind.”

One of Cathy’s eyes had to be removed and the other was deemed blind. She now has a guide dog.

“When she had these 16 surgeries, no one gave her a financial break.” Quigley said what eventually led to his sister filing for bankruptcy.

Because of that experience, he was determined to change other people’s lives, which started the Quigley Cares Program.

“People are important to me. We all think about our lives at some point and say if we made a difference in this world. I want to make a difference, that’s important to me. We will always help people “, he said.

In 1988, Quigley started his practice and saw that there were a number of people who didn’t have insurance, so when Quigley Eye Specialist began opening, he started waiving the surgeon’s fee. Unfortunately, there was still a setup fee that he couldn’t do without if the operation was performed in a hospital, for example.

In 1994 Quigley thought that “That’s silly, these patients still can’t afford it” Surgery. The St. John’s Surgery Center was built on Conference Drive in Fort Myers, so Quigley could do without the operation entirely. The year-round program performed more than 3,000 free surgeries.

“It is important for people to know, free means free” said Quigley. “These are people who don’t have insurance. We don’t charge them anything. “

Although it cost him tens of thousands of dollars to offer Quigley Cares, he said it was about giving back and serving the community.

“We want to contribute to the community to make it a better place” said Quigley. “It was a great program.”

Quigley Eye Specialist has partnered with the Fort Myers Lions Club to help people in need of cataract surgery during Cataract Awareness Month in June. Quigley Cares is offered to U.S. residents of Lee County who are in financial distress, not eligible for Medicare, and have debilitating cataracts.

Frances Wilhelm, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development, said individuals must contact the Fort Myers Lions Club by June 30 at (239) 205-2166 or email chuck517@comcast.net or have funds to pay for the operation.

“You must be in the county where we operate, be it Charlotte, Collier, or Lee County. We have offices across the state, in Miami and Sarasota. “ said Wilhelm.

If the person qualifies for the program, Wilhelm said they’ll be referred to Quigley’s ophthalmologist for surgery and one of the surgeons will examine them to help plan the cataract surgery.

“I’ve worked with several surgeons. There has never been such an extraordinary surgeon and person. Dr. Quigley has the greatest heart and service to the community. “ She said.

Quigley said the surgery itself was pretty short, only taking seven to eight minutes. The patient is sedated so that he does not feel any discomfort. There are two different types of lasers that are used during surgery – one to assist the surgeon and the other to remove the cataract with ultrasound.

When someone has cataracts, their vision becomes cloudy, blurry, or cloudy. Quigley said that since the lens in her eye is cloudy, it must be removed.

“You can’t see anything without a lens. We have to put in a lens again. We insert an implant and it requires a prescription so that we can see well without glasses. “ he said.

Although the patient feels drowsy on the day of the surgery due to the sedation, they can resume normal activities the next day.

“It’s a quick recovery. The eye is completely healed within a week. “ said Quigley. “Implants are a big step forward.”

Quigley Eye Specialists is located at Lehigh Acres, 5220 Lee Blvd .; two offices in Cape Coral – 112 Del Prado North and 513 Cape Coral Pkwy. W., and a location in Fort Myers Beach, 11170 Summerlin Square Dr.

BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania – Lehigh head coach Tom Gilmore has announced the addition of 11 student-athletes who will join the Mountain Hawks program next fall when the early signing period begins on Wednesday. It was certainly another year for Gilmore and the Mountain Hawks’ coaching team, finding creative ways to recruit during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are very excited about this group,” said Gilmore. “There were many challenges with recruiting this year, but our challenges were no different from anyone else’s. We just had to master them and do our best.

“We ended up putting together a very good class,” continued Gilmore. “They’re good football players, good students and better people. We feel like we’ve put together a well-rounded class.

The initial results include these first 11 members of Lehigh’s football class by 2025. The group includes six offensive players and five defensive players. The most strongly represented position group is the secondary, to which Lehigh welcomed three signatories. Lehigh also signed two offensive linemen and one in each of the following positions: quarterback, running back, wide receiver, tight end defensive end, and linebacker.

Geographically, the Mountain Hawks have signed players from six states as well as tight end Scott Fulton from Ottawa, Canada, who was preparing at the Salisbury School in Connecticut. Three signatories are from Pennsylvania, including local product Matt Rauscher, quarterback for Allentown Central Catholic. Lehigh continued his recruiting success in North Carolina and Georgia and also signed athletes from Ohio, Virginia and West Virginia.

The full list of early signatories follows:

Andrew Canelas – OL; 6-9 / 315; Durham, NC / Leesville Road

Four-year Uni-Letter winner … Sports Illustrated All-American Candidate … All-State and All-Classification as Junior … Academic All-Conference as Junior … Honorary Member … Played basketball as a freshman and sophomore.

BETHLEHEM, Pennsylvania – After the season was abandoned almost a year ago, the Lehigh men’s tennis team will return to the pitches for the season opener on Sunday. The Mountain Hawks will leave for Baltimore and face Loyola, Md. The planned start of the Mountain Hawks last weekend against Lafayette has been canceled.

Lehigh comes from a season they ended up 5-5. The Mountain Hawks started the first year with dominant wins against Saint Francis, Siena and Duquesne, before losing wire-to-wire matches against Drexel and Villanova. Just before the season was canceled due to COVID-19, Lehigh traveled to Orlando and took solid wins against Bentley and Carnegie Melon.

This year’s team returns with a wealth of talent from a season as Lehigh returns four of his top five players with Zack Elliott, Harry Wang, Gary Fishkin and Jacob Edelchik. The Mountain Hawks will also look for jumps by college students Matt Kleiman and Jeremy Learner. Elliott, Wang and Fishkin all got a 6-3 mark in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in the singles. Jacob Edelchik and Jeremy Learner took five singles wins a season ago, while Matt Kleiman took four.

The four best Lehigh players also form a strong duo in doubles. The pairs Elliott / Wang and Edelchik / Fishkin achieved six wins each in the first two places in doubles. Learner and Steven Nazaroff finished 3rd with 3-1.

Coach Wouter Hendrix brought two newcomers to this year’s team: David Missry and Jordan Paul. Missry is coming to Bethlehem from Taylor Allerdice High School, Pittsburgh, while Paul is coming from Marlboro High School, New Jersey.

The Greyhounds have yet to compete this season but will face Chestnut Hill in their first game of the season on Saturday before hosting the Mountain Hawks.

Look back on Sunday night to see how the Brown and Whites first game of the season went.

From Memorial Day to Labor Day, an average of seven people per day are killed in teenage car accidents, according to the AAA. Nationwide; more than 30% of deaths involving teenage drivers occur within 100 days.

With COVID-19 vaccines approved for teenagers and pandemic restrictions disappearing, teenagers will be right to want to reunite.

“After the CDC lifted many pandemic restrictions, young adults are eager to reconnect with friends, which means young inexperienced drivers will be spending more time on the roads.” AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins said in a press release. “This increases the likelihood that they will be involved in an accident and for every kilometer driven, the likelihood of new teenage drivers (aged 16-17) being involved in a fatal accident is three times higher than that of adults.”

According to the AAA, traffic accidents are the No. 1 killer of U.S. teenagers aged 16-19. Experts say six teenagers are killed every day “In accidents that can be completely avoided.”

In Florida, an average of 36 teenage drivers are involved in fatal accidents within 100 days. According to the AAA, an average of 158 people are killed in teenage car accidents each year; 40 of those who during the “100 deadliest days.” Over the past 10 summers, 400 people lost their lives in teenage car accidents.

“Young people lack the experience, skills and maturity of an experienced driver, which contributes to the fact that the probability of a fatal outcome increases not only for the young driver, but also for every passenger and for others on the road. ” Jenkins continued. “That’s why we all have a personal interest in making sure youngsters are safe behind the wheel.”

At Cape Coral High School, members of the Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) program do their best to pass the dangers or driving disabilities on to their classmates, especially during the prom and graduation seasons.

“Unfortunately, the students don’t have this fear, they consider themselves invincible.” said SADD sponsor of Cape Coral High School, Dianna Quay. “I hope our children (graduating on Saturday) make wise choices.”

Quay said Cape seniors had a chat about making the right decisions ahead of graduation night that Saturday and hope the message sticks.

“If we help a child think before they get into a car to drive, or even get into a car with someone under the influence of drugs, it’s worth it.” She said.

There are also concerns that the summer months are approaching and teenagers may want to be out and about more often.

“I think everyone was so pent up that it will be a release and I’m not sure everyone will make the smartest decisions.” Kai said. “Uber is available, there is no excuse for no alternative but to get in the car or get behind the wheel when alcohol or drugs have been involved.”

AAA officials said understanding the risks and knowing the facts will help prepare both parents and teens for what can happen on the street.

Safety tips for teenage drivers from AAA include:

Driving with passengers: The accident risks of young drivers multiply when they have young passengers. Set limits and enforce them.

Driving at night: Night driving is more dangerous due to limited visibility, fatigue and impaired drivers on the road. This is a risky time, especially for young people. Limit the amount of time your novice driver spends behind the wheel at night.

Do not wear a seat belt: Wearing a seat belt greatly reduces the risk of injury or death in an accident. Make a rule: everyone buckles up for every trip.

Over speeding: Speed ​​is a major factor in accidents for adolescents and adults. Teens must adhere to the speed limit and parents should lead by example and apply strict rules.

Distracted driving: Teenage passengers are the biggest distraction for teenage drivers, but cell phones come second. Many teenagers admit to interacting with their phone and infotainment systems in the car while they are behind the wheel, despite the obvious dangers. Make a family rule that covers these and other distractions that everyone adheres to.

Sleepy driving: Teenagers have difficulty getting enough sleep and often struggle with drowsiness. Sleepy driving is just as dangerous as driving drunk, and teenagers are at the highest risk. Make sure everyone behind the wheel has had enough sleep.

Restricted driving: Driving impaired by alcohol and other drugs puts everyone at risk. Implement strict zero-tolerance rules with your teen and be a good role model.

Parents talk to their ready-to-drive teenagers about the “Behaviour rules” can play an important role in how your child behaves at the wheel. AAA experts said teach by example and minimize “Risky behavior” while driving can lay the foundation for a safe driver.

AAA also recommends enrolling teenagers for driving courses. AAAs “How to drive online” is a 25-hour supplementary course that teaches the rules and essential elements of safe driving in an interactive and innovative way. This online program is designed to ensure that safe driving habits are developed and maintained for a lifetime.
