U.S. Deaf National Team Prepares for World Cup

newspaper story

The U.S. Deaf Women’s National Team is wrapping up their spring camp ahead
of this summer’s World Cup, and one player feels completely at home.

“I finished up my senior season this past year, and I haven’t stepped foot
on this field since,” said Western senior Sydney Andrews. “To be able to
do that with my deaf team, my United States team, it’s kind of surreal.
It’s nice to see the two blend.”

The Griffons scrimmaged the National Team on Wednesday in an effort to
help fund the team’s trip.

Western head soccer coach Chad Edwards was more than happy to host.

“When I found out about this opportunity to bring these kids to campus, it
was a no brainer,” said Edwards.

U.S. head coach Amy Griffin was appreciative.

“The facilities are unreal, and the trainers have helped out,” said
Griffin. “A lot of the players are staying with host families. Our team is
not funded at all so it all falls on the shoulders of the players to be
able to make the training camp.”

This year’s team will look to defend their 2012 World Cup title, and their
assistant coach is a two-time World Cup champion herself.

Joy Fawcett played 18 years on the U.S. Women’s National Team and has also
won two gold medals. She enjoys the opportunity to coach this group.

“It’s an interesting community because they all hear and speak at
different levels,” said Fawcett. “Some know sign language, some don’t, and
they’re all very patient with each other… It’s a lot of fun to work with
them and teach them the game.”

The World Cup begins in Italy on June 19th.

Golfer Chases Goals in Prattville

One of the biggest sporting events in the River Region is starting this
week in Prattville. The Robert Trent Jones Golf Course Capitol Hill is
once again the site of the Yokohama Tire LPGA Classic. The tournament
features young women from across the nation at all levels of skill. There
is a level of commitment from the athletes that is something to be admired
no matter who you are.

.It.s something, you know even if you.re not a golfer, you can come out
and appreciate the work ethic,. says the director of operations at the
course Mike Beverly. .There will be girls out here, you know, at 5:30, we
have light towers on the driving range, they get here so early before
sunup to start working on their game before their rounds, so to be that
level player, especially at an early age, it.s truly dedication..

And dedication is truly the word to describe Kaylin Yost, a young golfer
looking to get back into the world of professional golf. Yost has faced
her own unique set of challenges.

.I was born with dislocated hips,. she says. .The doctors told my parents
I wouldn.t be able to walk, ride a bicycle, or do anything a normal kid
could do. And with God.s miracle and two major surgeries I.m walking and
playing golf!.

Yost is also hearing impaired and has been wearing
hearing aids since she was two. What some would see as a disability has
not held her back.

.I love being hearing impaired!. she laughs. .I use the deaf card a lot, I
turn off people when I want to! It.s definitely made my life a journey
having hearing aids. I wouldn.t trade it for the world..

Yost is playing in the qualifying round of the tournament on Monday, and
must be one of the top two players to make it to the rest of the
tournament. While her goal is to play professionally, right now Yost is
just focusing on one thing at a time.

.It.s my life. I.ve been playing it as long as I can remember, and it.s a
passion, it.s a hobby, my dream, and it.s fun..

Win or lose, any day on the course is a good day for Kaylin Yost.

Every day out here, whether I.m playing good golf
or not, it.s just a blessing to be out here..

Lady Ghosts Softball Game #3 Summary

The MPS Lady Ghost Softball team played on their home game again at
Barbieri Field today.  At first, they were worried from their
yesterday game because, they struggled to play on the field that was
not in great shape. When we arrived upon the field, the field had
improved! The Lady Ghost worked hard fix their mistakes from
yesterday in order to prepare for the game today.

Unfortunately, on the first inning, the Lady Ghost got off to a rough
start due to heap of errors from our positions. On the top of second
inning,  we settled down and found a way to get out of mess,
defensively.  Offensively, we made great rallies to get back into the
game, however, Covenant Christian Academy wouldn’t give it up on
their game, either.  Our team gave best efforts on batting and
staying patience in order to draw a lot of walks. Despite
battling and trying to get back into the game with limited time,
our Lady Ghost lost the game to CCA by the score,. 21- 17.

Perfect send-off for boss of Sunderland deaf football team as club wins
another trophy

(newspaper story)

A deaf football team gave their manager the perfect send-off as they
lifted a national championship.

Sunderland Deaf AFC beat Reading 3-0 in Nottingham to win the England Deaf
Football League Cup, adding to the England Deaf Football League trophy
they had already secured

It was the final game in charge for Anthony Smare, who set up the club
three years ago and is leaving to help form a national league.

The club has provided an outlet for many deaf people in the city who have
found it difficult to secure jobs because of their disability.

To mark their achievement, the team has been invited to Sunderland AFC.s
Stadium of Light, to walk around the pitch ahead of the club.s game with
Chelsea a week on Saturday.

For Mr Smare, winning the cup was the culmination of three years of hard
work, which started when the self-employed gas fitter set the club up with
£1,500 of funding three years ago. The club also won the competition last
season.

He said: .Winning the cup means a lot to me, because it shows how much
work I.ve put into the club.

.It is so rewarding to win this trophy again after winning it last season,
to end three years as manager on a high.
.I.ve decided to step down as I am involved in setting up the National
Deaf Football League, which will start next season.

.I want to see more deaf players in professional football, so I.m
dedicating my time to this project. I will be back one day, though, as I
enjoy being at the club and I am considering a chairperson role at the
club..

The club was set up with funding from the Football Foundation, and help
from the Foundation of Light.

Mr Smare runs the business Northstar Plumbing and Heating, and has paid
tribute to his players.

He added: .It is difficult, as most of players are unemployed and find it
difficult to get jobs due to their deafness. This does impact what we do,
as it becomes costly to keep travelling all over the country to play in
games.

.This title win is a massive boost and hopefully we will get recognised by
potential sponsors to, help us further establish ourselves as a force next
season..

The club.s annual budget is about £3,000, with most coming directly from
the players and staff. As well as sponsors, they are looking for new
players with at least a moderate loss of hearing.

D-G-F athletic trainer has never let being deaf hold him back

GYNDON, Minn. . Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton athletic trainer Shane Winkenwader
stared at the notebook and read the words to the question. There was a
little smirk, and he shrugged his shoulders.

He sat back in his chair and stared for a minute. The 28-year-old had a
second of silence. Silence is what he’s always been used to. He has been
deaf since he was 2 years old, after a fight with meningitis, so what was
there to answer.
