"Serving in the Israeli Army taught me many lessons, such as discipline, determination, work ethic and the ability to work with different groups of people, which has helped me tremendously as a student-athlete at Arizona."
 
Talya Zandberg
Sport: Women's Tennis
Major: Information Science & eSociety
Hometown: Tiberias, Israel
 
What does Talya Zandberg have in common with David Robinson, Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio and Arnold Palmer? A lot more than you would think.
 
Prior to arriving to Tucson in 2018, Zandberg served in the Israeli Army for two years, a requirement for all Israeli citizens.
 
"Serving in the Israeli Army taught me many lessons, such as discipline, determination, work ethic and the ability to work with different groups of people, which has helped me tremendously as a student-athlete at Arizona," Zandberg said.
 
"Before I even joined the Israeli Army, I had to undergo physical and intellectual tests. After I passed those, I had to complete basic training that took about a month. From there, I was given orders to work in the Air Force."
 
Serving in the military will force you to grow up no doubt, especially when one of your duties is to stand guard on the base.
 
"I had to guard the base to keep everybody safe in the middle of the night," Zandberg said. "It was an incredibly strict system and it was one of the most challenging tasks I had on duty."

Talya Zandberg Israel Army














Imagine that. You're barely out of high school and your job is to protect the base and your fellow soldiers. That takes a tremendous amount of honor and courage.

 
Just because Zandberg was serving in the military didn't mean that she had to quit tennis completely. Prior to joining the Israeli Army, Zandberg was a Junior U18 Israeli Champion in 2013, so her desire to keep playing the game she loved.
 
"I would wake up early so I could practice, then I would go back to my base and work for the day," Zandberg said. "After I finished my day of work on base, I went back to the tennis courts to practice for a few more hours and would go back to the base to sleep."

After two years of serving her country and keeping her tennis game sharp, Zandberg arrived in the Spring of 2018 and made an immediate impact as she appeared in 26 matches and posted a 7-7 singles record in a loaded Pac-12 as a freshman.

Over the last two seasons, Zandberg has been one of Arizona's most consistent players. During her sophomore year, she led the team with 12 wins during the spring season and had 14 singles wins this past season at the No. 1 spot in the lineup before the season was cut short to COVID-19. 

 
Now a senior, Zandberg will be looked upon as a leader, which shouldn't be a problem for her considering the mentality that was instilled in her during her time serving her country.
 
"Talya brings qualities that she learned in the Army to the tennis court," head coach Ryan Stotland said. "Because of her two years of service, she is more mature than most student-athletes, and she has the traits to be a great leader because of the experiences she has gone through at such a young age. She's very competitive and never gives up, and I know Talya will be a great role model to the younger kids and help guide them to what we want this program to become."

   Honor Roll Recognition for

 Israeli Athletes  


 

Being a student athlete at the university level is not easy.  It requires dedication to both your sport and your studies.  You need to stay in top form for your coach and competition, while proving yourself to your professors in the classroom.  Now, take an Israeli athlete that is studying in a language that they didn't grow up speaking or reading and are thousands of miles from their family and friends and the emotional support they offer. They are living in an environment and mentality that is completely different from where they grew up and can't just hop back home for the weekend. This makes the task of being a successful student athlete much more difficult.

It is with great pride that I list some of the Israeli athletes that not only are a credit to their sport, but have excelled in the classroom as well.  The following athletes have been cited as outstanding students having made the honor roll or all-academic teams in the past year as announced on their school's website:

Southern Methodist University Honor Roll:  Matan Segal, Distinction,  Lior Kremer, High Distinction

Illinois State:  Eddie Winner, USTFCCCA All-Academic Team

Old Dominion University:  Shahar Biran, ITA Scholar-Athlete

Wake Forest:  Bar Botzer, ITA Scholar-Athlete

Massachusetts Institute of Technology:  Yorai Shaoul, USTFCCCA All-Academic Team

North Carolina Central University:  Amit Baran, ITA Scholar-Athlete

University of Arizona:  Talya Zandberg, ITA Scholar-Athlete

San Jose State:  Lior Ben David, named to ACWPC All-Academic Team Outstanding List with a 3.962 GPA

University of Nevada, Reno:  Daniel Dudockin, All Mountain West Academic Team, 3.95 GPA in Finance

University of California, Davis:  Nir Gross, WWPA Academic Honor Roll

Stonehill College:  Yaniv Kovalski, cited for Academic Distinction

Mercer University:  Daniel Krashin, ITA Scholar-Athlete

University of Memphis:  Adam Yakobi, AAC All-Academic Team

LA Tech Tennis Announces Fall Schedule

RUSTON – Louisiana Tech head coach Amanda Stone announced on Tuesday the 2020 fall tennis schedule which will consist of three weekend tournaments.
 
After having the spring season cut short back in mid-March, LA Tech is eager to get back out onto the courts starting the weekend of Oct. 9-10 in Monroe at the Warhawk Invitational. 
 
The following week, the Lady Techsters will head to Conway, Arkansas to take part in the UCA Fall Tournament on Oct. 16-18.  The fall slate will round out on Nov. 6-8 in Nacogdoches, Texas at the SFA Fall Tournament. 
 
"I'm really happy for a lot of reasons for our fall season to start," said Stone who enters her fifth season at the helm.  "I'm very grateful that we are able to compete with everything that is going on.  After our season was cut short last spring, our returners are really motivated to be back in action."
 
LA Tech will have a blend of returners and newcomers on this year's roster.  Claudia Oravcova is the lone senior on the squad, returning with almost 70 total victories under her belt.  The Slovakia native already has registered 35 career dual doubles wins which is tied for the 10th most in program history. 
 
Junior Ilana Tetruashvili, (Holon, ISRAEL) enters her third year with the program.  The Israel native has a combined 43 wins with fall/spring, including a 21-11 mark in doubles.

Roulette and Blackjack are very popular casino games as they can be played for the cash too.
Both have gained popularity because of their inception, so there are lots of sites offering these games to get both free and sale. A Blackjack hand total is the number of times that the blackjack player has ever won. There are 3 potential outcomes if a blackjack player bets: they win, they lose, or they get nothing.
Because players can win, blackjack is known as a form of gambling.

To engage in blackjack an individual must learn how to draw cards, both sides of this dining table. A normal strategy for blackjack involves counting card combinations, or perhaps the probability of getting cards that are specific. Many casinos require players to study the basics of how to count cards, for example, rule that theces and eights add around seven. This simple strategy can cut the casino's edge and improve the Blackjack chances.


Highcard Counting or HCC is a frequent way for some blackjack games, and it's also part of a basic strategy for a wide range of gaming. If you are at an internet casino and would like to check this out particular strategy, only enter your highest hand into the interface and then add seven to the surface of your hand count.
This will give you the highest card-counting hand which you could have (after the bonus round). The bonus rounds usually offer the casino extra money therefore it pays to bet the maximum amount you may. In the event that you may win after the incentive is applied, this may greatly improve your chances at the long term.


Double Blackjack is another excellent way for blackjack that lots of players do not ever know. This tactic requires you to manage your hand again (following the bonus rounds are implemented ) and bet on the 2nd card dealtwith. Players who are proficient at blackjack understand that an additional card is significantly much more likely to become dealt poor than the first.

If you are dealt a poor card, then you have the choice of betting the gap between the two highest cards on the second card, however it is generally far superior to bet exactly the same on the first card. Afterall, players are often dealt a second card in a lousy cost.

I believe everything posted was actually very reasonable.
However, think on this, suppose you added a little information? I am
not suggesting your content isn't solid., but suppose you added something that grabbed people's
attention? I mean September 2020 TIB Newsletter is
a little boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo's front
page and note how they create post headlines to grab people to click.
You might add a related video or a picture or
two to get readers excited about what you've written. Just my opinion, it might make your blog
a little bit more interesting.
