Indiana softball

newspaper story

Eels’ comeback falls short in sectional loss

The season ended Monday for the Eminence softball team, but not without a
fight.

In their Class A Sectional 58 opening-round match-up with Indiana School
for the Deaf, the Eels mounted a late-game comeback at Indianapolis
Lutheran High School before ultimately losing 6-4.

Eminence fell into an early hole but clawed its way back with a three-run
sixth inning and brought the tying run to the plate in the seventh inning
. but it wasn.t enough against a Deaf Hoosiers team that advances to play
No. 16 Indianapolis Lutheran in today.s semifinals.

.We came back and put up a pretty good fight and made it interesting,.
Eminence coach Ted Smile said. .We are a young team and will be back, but
it.s just frustrating. We wanted to get a game going and really see what
could happen in our next game..

Eminence (5-11) hadn.t played in nine days and had starting pitcher Rae
Ramey medically cleared from a concussion just hours before Monday.s game.
It took the Eels a few innings to shake off the rust.

The Deaf Hoosiers took full advantage of Eminence.s early-inning woes,
scoring three unearned runs in the third inning and another unearned run
in the fifth inning to take a 5-1 lead.

Ramey, pitching for the first time in more than a week, allowed eight hits
and just two earned runs in the complete-game loss.

.The errors have been consistent all year, and that.s what has cost us in
some games,. Smile said. .They have to make the plays that they know they
can make. We just had to keep fighting through that today..

The Eels never stopped believing, and in the sixth inning it paid off.

They scored three runs in the inning to cut the Deaf School.s lead to 5-4
with a rally that featured hits from Jada Cuttriss and Taja Davis and an
RBI bunt from Jade Chambers.

Smile saw hope return to his dugout moments before the rally began.

.We had a talk with them before that inning started and told them, .Why
not us? Why can.t we do it?. . Smile said. .I think it got them motivated
a little bit, and then we started to put some runs on the board..

The Deaf Hoosiers (8-3) added one more run in the top of the seventh and
then held off Eminence in the bottom of the inning to stretch their
winning streak to three games.

Isabella Paulone was the winning pitcher and also led the Deaf School at
the plate with a triple and an RBI double, while teammate Rebecca
Brietbach was 2-for-4 with two RBIs.

Davis led Eminence offensively with two hits and an RBI.

The Eels had no seniors and just two juniors . Cuttriss and Chambers . on
their roster this season, leaving Smile optimistic about the future.

.I think that if you talk to us in a couple of years when these starting
freshmen and sophomores are seniors and juniors then you will see a tough
team,. Smile said. .They just have to get over this hump. I know they
weren.t ready to be done playing and I wasn.t ready to be done, but we are
proud of them..

elite deaf athletes

Tyson Gillies, after failing to win a minor league
contract this season in Organized Ball, is playing
for the Sugar Land Skeeters (Texas), which plays in
the Atlantic League. It is one of the nation’s toughest
independent professional baseball leagues. Minor
League scouts watch these games for possible late
season pick ups.

Anyway Tyson is hitting .279 (12 hits in 50 at bats)
in 14 games so far this season. He is not a power
hitter, and so far, zero homers.

Hopefully he will pick up as weather gets hot,
and that he gets signed to a minor league contract
this season.

DeafSports Trivia

Q. There is very little coverage on local and

as softball, basketball, golf and bowling?
Why is it that way?

A. It has always been that way for years.
It is tiresome to get updates from sports
groups that do not consider publicity
a priority with them.

5/23 – LADY GHOSTS SOFTBALL GAME SUMMARY -

Marie Philip School Lady Ghosts Softball @ Elizabeth Seton Academy-

After a long, tiring, and successful weekend, the Lady Ghosts were
ready to get back at it for their last fast pitch game of the 2016
season. The weather was absolutely perfect and despite having only 7
players, we were ready to take on the Elizabeth Seton Academy. The
girls started off strong, scoring 8 runs in the first inning. The
Lady Ghosts kept the lead for the entire game and proved that they
are amazing athletes through their hits, steals, and defensive plays.
For the first time in MPS history, The Lady Ghosts beat a hearing
school with an impressive 22-13 score. This is a tremendous outcome
for the MPS team, and we are all extremely proud of the girls for
working together, pushing through injuries and exhaustion, and
overcoming any obstacle that came their way. When you see the team,
please be sure to congratulate them on their big win! Because all of
the 7 players made great efforts, they are all the 7 stars of the
game.

A big shout out to David Del Pizzo for joining us for the game and
for stepping in to coach. Kristina – we all missed you and wish you
were there for the big win!

Highlights of the game: 

Playing with 7, sometimes 6, players

Zora Elliott-Mendelsohn playing 2nd base and short stop for the first
time

Quiara Howard for being the only outfielder

Sabrina Rodrigues getting injured and coming back into the game

Shayla Rochette with her first home run, a grand slam!

Sabrina Rodriques with a triple

Several steals home

Kayla LoBrutto pitching 4 strikeouts

Kayla, Zora, and Leah Kaftan all making great catches for outs

Heather Hall making a tag at home plate to prevent a run

 

Stats:

Kayla LoBrutto: 2-3 and 4 walks

Leah Kaftan: 2-4 and 3 walks

Shayla Rochette: 5-6 and 1 walk

Sabrina Rodrigues: 2-3 and 1 walk

Heather Hall: 3-3 and 3 walks

GAME SUMMARY – WPSD SLO-PITCH SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT

Hello MPS community!

In the recently weekend, Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf did
an amazing job as hosting on their 5th annual slow pitch softball
tournament and it was a successful! 

I just wanted to say, MPS Lady Ghosts did a tremendous job! We are
proud of them for working so hard even though,  they are not used to
play couple games all day long.  The Lady Ghosts were extremely
exhausted and sore from playing softball games. At the end of
tournament, they were so proud of themselves to make it through! We
came tied with Lexington School for the Deaf in second place.
However, with tie-breaking rule, the Lexington came second place due
to more runs than MPS Lady Ghost. We may have come in third place
BUT, we are in second place in bottom of our hearts.

Again, it was a great and long weekend for us!

Reminder, please come down to watch their softball game on Wednesday
vs American School for the Deaf!Come and support MPS Lady Ghost!

Thank you everyone! 

Many thanks to Kelly Sotksy for your best support and being there for
the MPS Lady Ghosts!

Also, thanks to Pam Jones for helping us out as well!

Chris Hrabe.s High School Spotlight: Lynae Arthur, Webster Groves Lacrosse

newspaper story

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) . Junior Lynae Arthur.s very first shot on goal for the
Webster Groves Junior Varsity Lacrosse Team landed in the back of the net.
The small crowd roars, her teammates tell her .good job,. but Arthur
doesn.t hear any of it.

.I think being deaf is hard,. Arthur says. .Like it.s harder to understand
people and stuff like that..

Around the age of five, Arthur.s mother noticed her daughter wasn.t able
to hear well. The doctor advised for Arthur to be fitted for Cocular
Implants . she.s had them ever since.

Arthur.s lack of hearing may seem disabling, but the challenge it brings
has actually kept her in lacrosse.

.I like to meet new people and learn how to communicate with my team,.
Arthur says.

She was watching the varsity girls, some who will be teammates next year,
and head coach Andrew Hittler prepare for their State Quarterfinal game
May 18. Hittler has also coached the JV team at times this year, and from
day one of coaching Arthur, he was impressed.

.I wouldn.t even try it,. Hittler says. .She has so much courage just to
come out and play a sport . it.s just incredible.

.From the beginning of the year, she was towards the top of the team with
talent. It was just the communication, how are we going to put it all
together..

At every one of Arthur.s games, standing as close as she can to the field,
is Arthur.s interpreter, Charlene Kaminski. She relays to Arthur any
instructions the coaches give her.

.So there is a little bit of a delay,. Hittler says. .But (Arthur) knows
the sport well enough, it comes to her naturally and she knows what.s
going on..

But Arthur says she knows her impaired hearing has held her game back. And
next year as a senior, she just wants to show her teammates how she can
overcome it.

.Like, they haven.t struggled as I have been,. Arthur says. .I wish the
team can, like, involve me to be in the team like a family instead of just
out of the the team, like not being involved because I am deaf..

And after high school, Arthur plans to keep playing lacrosse at the
collegiate level, because she wants to continue her challenge.

.Yeah I think it.s going to be harder,. Arthur says. .But I never like
give up on my sports because it.s my favorite, and I just want to continue
playing lacrosse..

Celebrities set to tackle for charity football match at Doncaster.s

Famous faces are set to go head to head in a charity football match to
raise funds for British teams to go to the Deaf World Cup.

More than 20 celebrities, who are more well known for their appearances on
the small screen or singing abilities, will play in the match on Sunday,
May 29 at Doncaster Rover.s Keepmoat Stadium.

Former The Only Way is Essex star Dan Osborne, who will play in a charity
football match at the Keepmoat Stadium, Doncaster on May 29 to raise funds
to send British teams to the 2016 Deaf World Cup in Italy.

The celebrities are hoping to raise the £25,000 needed to send Great
Britain.s men.s, women.s and under 21s teams to the tournament in Italy,
which takes place from June 29 to July 2.
editor’s note: we do not see such national celebrity fund raising
athletic contests in USA – yes, there are small time local
fund raising athletic events, but not on a national scale.
It is different in Great Britain.

softball game against Woodward School. The MPS Lady Ghost made a
better progress on their defenses and batting skills. Finally, our

especially since they have had long week of many games. The Woodward
coach was very impressed with our team’s defense and that our Lady
Ghost prowess has improved this year than last year. He is looking
forward to have his team, Woodward School will play against MPS Lady
Ghosts next year.

Dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to Jim
Inwood, Milton, WI, that departed us.

He played three seasons of football at Gallaudet
during the sixties. He was a starter at linebacker
and before enrolling at Gallaudet he turned down
feelers from several small colleges to play
football for them.

His first love, however, was golf – and was one
of the better golfers on the Gallaudet golf team.

After Gallaudet he became the greens superintendent
at the Renwood Country Club in Round Lake, IL. He
served in that capacity for nine years before moving
on to other endeavors in life.

It is believed he was the only deaf person to
serve in that capacity with a country club.

LADY GHOSTS SOFTBALL GAME SUMMARY – MAY 18

Yesterday, it was a  beautiful day for MPS Lady Ghosts to play
softball game against the American School for the Deaf, in West
Hartford Connecticut.  The Lady Ghosts gave great efforts into this
game and worked so hard on their skills. We were all gearing up,
energetic, and fire the game away! Throughout the innings, we played
very well on the defense positions and kept their heads together  on
their batting skills as well. Unfortunately, at the end of innings
when the time was running out, Lady Ghosts had trouble focusing
in holding the lead defensively. We made a few errors lost the
game by one run.  Our girls were disappointed, but we kept our chins
up and will do our best for the next game against American School for
the Deaf next week. The score was ASD 13-12 MPS.  Kelly and I were
very proud of our team! 
The game highlight were:
1. Sabrina: 1 play to home for outs.

2. Zora: beautiful catch!

3. Leah: got grounder ball and tagged third for out.

4. Kayla: two strike outs, 3 plays to first base.

MPS Lady Ghosts softball game is on Thursday May 19th, 2016 vs.
Woodward School @ LaBrecque Field (A)

H.S. Male Athlete of the Week: Thomas Rienas of NV/Old Tappan

New Jersey newspaper story

Thomas Rienas is a brilliant runner who sweeps to victory in races that
are over in mere seconds.

The NV/Old Tappan senior, however, says life has taught him to have
patience for the things that take time.

Rienas was born with Grade III microtia and atresia. His right ear was, in
his words, “malformed” skin and cartilage, with no external auditory ear
canal and hearing capability.

Rienas, The Record Male Athlete of the Week after winning the 200 and 400
meters and running a leg on the victorious 4-x-400 relay team at the Red
Littler Bergen County Track and Field Championships, endured an 11-year
gauntlet of painful surgeries and long hospital stays.

“[Doctors] restored it to almost normal hearing on my right side, which
took seven surgeries [with] six-month recoveries for each one . at least
six months,” Rienas said. “So it took a while.”

Rienas, who wears a hearing aid, says keeping up in the classroom still
presents a hurdle.

“I know I miss a lot of things in school with what teachers are saying,
but I have such a good friend group and they always help me out,” he said.

“They always support me. And I have my twin brother [Will] who takes the
same classes. He helps me out at home.”

Thomas and Will are heading to Harvard in the fall. They.re interested in
studying biomedical sciences with an eye on becoming doctors someday.
Thomas wants to be an ear doctor.

But as they run the race of life, don.t expect them to leave track behind.

“I love track, so I.m definitely going to stick with it,” Thomas said.

Rouse looks to Commonwealth Games after placing at Oceania

Emma Rouse has her eyes set on making the New Zealand 2018 Commonwealth
Games judo team after claiming silver at the 2016 Oceania Judo
Championships in Australia.

And she’s hoping her eyesight holds out that long.

The 24-year-old from Wainui was diagnosed with Usher Syndrome last year.

Emma was born 50 per cent deaf but the syndrome, which results in a
combination of hearing loss and visual impairment, went undiagnosed until
she experienced sight issues.

Chess

World Individual Deaf Chess Championship on May 17 at the Tigran
Petrossian Chess House. The tournament will have over 120 sportsmen
participating from 24 countries, taking part in 7 subgroups. The
tournament will conclude on May 26.

editor’s note:

Chess is big time overseas, not in USA. A deaf British chess leader was
amazed that the Americans have never heard of past deaf American
chess players. He kept on repeating one name – Emil Ladner, saying he was
great sportsman in USA. DeafDigest Sports editor, that knew who Ladner
was, showed puzzlement. It was realized that the Britishman was talking
about chess, and not other sports (football, basketball, track, etc) that
Ladner excelled at.
