Gallaudet baseball

Coleman, Crawford lead Bison to victory against Maine-Presque
Isle

WASHINGTON – Junior pitcher Ben Coleman (St. Paris, Ohio) threw a complete
game shutout Friday afternoon as Gallaudet University defeated University
of Maine-Presque Isle, 1-0, in a non-conference baseball game at Hoy Field.
The win helped the Bison (2-13) split the doubleheader with the visiting
Owls (2-2), who won the first game 3-0 in seven innings.

Coleman (1-1) surrendered three hits, all singles, walked five and struck
out five in seven innings of work. Sophomore third baseman Zack Crawford
(Newnan, Ga.) came through with a RBI double in the fourth inning to score senior
shortstop Mitchell Bensman (Russia, Ohio). Bensman led the Bison with two
singles as GU tallied six hits in the win. Maine-Presque Isle was led by third
baseman Aaron Kofsta’s two hits and one walk. Starting pitcher Saul Nunez
(1-1) took the loss on the mound for the Owls.

UMPI scored twice in the top of the sixth in the first game as two Bison
errors kept the inning alive for the visitors. Starting pitcher Matt Curry
(1-1) went the distance as he allowed three hits, walked one and struck out
eight Bison. Curry helped his own cause going 1-for-3 at the plate and
scored one run. Matt Cauchon (1-for-1, two walks) scored the game’s first run in the
fourth and later scored one of two runs in the sixth.

Sophomore first baseman Justin Strong (Charlotte, N.C.) had two of
Gallaudet’s three hits. Freshman Dylan Hayes (Endicott, N.Y.) threw a
complete game and took his third loss of the season. Hayes allowed three unearned runs on
four hits, walked three and tallied four strikeouts.

Gallaudet will next travel to Salisbury, Md., to face the No. 1 ranked Sea
Gulls (11-0) on Sunday at 1 p.m.

 
editor’s note: Gallaudet baseball team practically plays a national
schedule, defeating teams from Tennessee and Maine, a large geographical
area!

Gallaudet softball

Bison swept by Catholic

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University lost a non-conference doubleheader
to nearby rival Catholic University of America 9-0 and 8-0 on a
picturesque Thursday afternoon at the GU Softball Complex.

The twin bill was originally scheduled to be played at Catholic but
got moved to Gallaudet due to poor field conditions. Gallaudet
(4-14), the visiting team for these games, dropped the first game in
five innings and the second game in six.

Catholic (7-5) broke open the first game with eight runs in the
fourth as four Bison errors allowed the Cardinals to keep the inning
alive.  In the second game, Catholic took a 1-0 lead into the fifth
inning when it plated six runs on six hits and were aided by four
Bison errors. The game ended with Gallaudet’s fifth error as a
dropped fly ball allowed the eighth and final run to score in the
sixth.

Senior Montana Murphy (Simi Valley, Calif.) took the loss in the
second game as she allowed eight runs (five earned) on eight hits,
two walks and four strikeouts. Freshman Alyssa Barlow (Chandler,
Ariz.) lost in the circle in the first game as she allowed nine runs
(two earned) on four hits and five walks. Barlow had one of
Gallaudet’s two hits in the first game and had a double in the second
game.

The Bison will host Penn St.-Abington (2-1-1) in a four-game North
Eastern Athletic Conference series this weekend at the GU Softball
Complex. GU will play at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday and noon and
2 p.m. on Sunday.

dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to Doyle Diedrich
who departed us. As a student at Oklahoma School for the
Deaf, he was one of the best players on the football
team (1949 & 1950). He played on the line and was
known for his booming punts. The school restarted football
in 1949 and had a 5-1 record. In 1950, the team advanced
all the way to the state championship finals before
losing by a close score. This amazing feat, in the team’s
second season of football play, would not have been
possible if not for Diedrich’s play on the field.
DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to
Thomas Welp, who departed us. He had Usher syndrome, but
it did not stop him from playing sports – football,
basketball at Arizona School for the Deaf & Blind.
Said a past teammate:

He played sports. He was a very hard player

Gallaudet baseball

Bison clipped by Cardinals, 12-1

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University baseball team lost to
neighboring Catholic University of America, 12-1, on an overcast and
cool Wednesday afternoon at Hoy Field.

Junior Brad Stockdill (New Castle, Pa.) had a lead-off triple to
start the ninth inning for the Bison (1-12). Stockdill then scored on
a sacrifice fly by freshman Kyle Gumm (Dallas, Texas) as GU ended
Catholic’s bid for a shutout.

Catholic (11-2-1) scored three runs in the first and third innings
before plating four in the fifth and two in the eighth as the
Cardinals collected 17 hits, including seven extra-base hits. The
Cardinals substituted freely and often as 24 different players saw
action in the nine-inning non-conference game.

Sophomore starting pitcher Blake Phillips (Dalton, Ga.) took the loss
as he allowed 10 runs on 13 hits, two walks and one strikeout in five
inning pitched. Freshman Dylan Hayes (Endicott, N.Y.) led the Bison
with two hits.

Gallaudet will next face top-ranked Salisbury University on the road
Sunday, March 29, at 1 p.m.

Alabama boys’ basketball

(newspaper story)

Alabama School for the Deaf had a successful season. The Silent Warriors
finished with a 16-10 record. ASD had five players earn all-county honors.

while Cody Maddox, Uriah Stallworth and Ketrez Holdman were named
honorable mention.

fastest deaf miler?

The mile run is obsolete, being replaced by 1,500 meters.

But have we had a deaf miler, in the past that almost beat
the 4 minute barrier?

Sometime in the early nineties, deaf long distance runner
Todd Landsberg ran track and cross country for Baylor.
He once ran the mile in 4:02.

Admittedly DeafDigest Sports never heard of him.

…………..

turf war, deaf vs hearing

In Australia there is a turf war.

the Deaf Football Australia (soccer) wants to install an
artificial turf on a public playground that is being
used for team practices and team games.

The neighborhood is opposing it, saying it would
be safer for their children to play on grass
(when the national team is not using it).

……………

Gallaudet’s first basketball game

Gallaudet started a basketball team in 1904.

The very first game they played was a 72-0 win
over the Baltimore Silent Orioles club!

other comments:
1. at Clerc, Indiana led 11-0; Maryland caught up but
missed a last second free throw that would have won
the championship. Indiana won in overtime by 4 points.

2. After Clerc, Maryland was 12-1; Indiana was 5-5

3. Indiana defeated Metropolitan 66-65 in regular
season but lost 69-47 at Sectionals

4. Maryland defeated Greater Grace 48-47 in regular
season but lost 58-52 in conference semi finals

5. It was the third time Indiana won 16 games or more
in a season, a tremendous honor for them.

6. The last time Indiana won the sectionals was
1983. It is the most important game of the season for
member school teams in the state.

7. Both Maryland and Indiana are great teams.
Would have been interesting if they played each other
once again this season!

stepped up big. Alphonso Sackor stepped up in a huge way hitting 3
for 4 free throws in overtime leading us to victory by the score of
48 to 44. He had 18 points and 13 rebounds. Ariel Gonzalez chipped in

a few scoring opportunities. The final score was 71 to 34. Jairee Hill
scored 12 points and hauled in 8 rebounds to lead the roosters. Our season
comes to a end with a record of 14-13.

offense. TLC boys finished with 4 wins and 2 losses on last 6 games
which put us more confidence for the next season. We had to say good
bye to our two seniors, Konner Looney and Stephen Corbett. Both
contributed our team in much way of good standing as student,
committment and humored to our team this year. We will miss them.

Konner, senior with 4 points,  4 rebounds, 1 steal
Stephen, senior with 5 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist

muster up a victory, there were many positives to take away from our
matches yesterday- our aggressiveness, especially.  There were many
first-timers out there yesterday and they tried bold shots which
tells us that once their skills are refined, we’ll be a force to
reckon with :) .

Learning Center girls’ basketball

2/26/15 – Last game of the season:

The Lady Ghosts travelled to Boston to play against Horace Mann
School for the Deaf for a rescheduled game.   In the first half, our
team were not mentally in the game as we only scored 4 points.  Our
defense had frustrated Horace Mann and prevented the team from
scoring more baskets.  At halftime, we were down by 1 point, 5-4.

In the second half, we played better and got back into the game.  It
was a close game all the way down to the wire when Isabella Bucci
made a basket to lead by one. Our defense clamped HMS offense for the
last minute of the game to seal with the win, 18-17.   

Stats:

Kaylo LoBrutto (so): 1 rebound, 1 assist, 3 steals
