In a tight game at Larson Gym, The Roadrunners lost a close game that saw leads
change sides through. Monte Del Sol is a much taller and experienced 2AA team
and defeated us handedly in our season opener by 11 points. Tonight’s game
showed that the Roadrunners had the talent and mettle to compete with bigger
schools, However, mental mistakes down the stretch and missed free throws doomed
the Roadrunners. The team was led by Senior post Luis Villalobos’ 22 points and
13 rebounds. Sophomore point guard Bruce Brewer, Jr. was quiet tonight with 13
points, 8 assists and 4 steals. Freshman post Kieran Vollmar had 13 points and
10 rebounds. The 7-4. Roadrunners travel to Jemez Valley this Thursday in an

RISD Boys Basketball played their first back-to-back game of the year,
hosting San Miguel School. This would be a good test for our boys as San
Miguel is known for their speed and good ball movement. We struggled to
keep
up with them in the first half, finding ourselves in a 34-15 deficit. The
coaches continued their emphasis on making the right decisions and taking
better care of the ball. This is a season-long process as we strive to
become better and get ourselves ready for the ESDAA Div. 2 Boys Basketball
Tournament next month, so there were some bright spots in this game, as
San

part of newspaper story

50 YEARS AGO (1970): Steve Blehm, formerly of Bismarck, broke his own
North Dakota School for the Deaf scoring record with a 52-point splurge
against the Devils Lake B-squad. Blehm’s burst led the Bulldogs, now 6-4
on the season, to an 80-74 victory.

note:

Blehm, who broke all these school, state and national scoring
records, played basketball at Gallaudet during the latter
part of the seventies. He was deadly with his shots, looking
for ways to keep himself open.

………………….

random deafsports talk

re the Steve Blehm story above, there was another high
scoring star that Gallaudet was blessed to have
during the high scoring era of the seventies –
Ernest Epps, who averaged 37.6 points per game as a
senior at Kentucky School for the Deaf. He reportedly
attracted notice from University of Maryland. He,
and Blehm played full careers at Gallaudet but only
played together one season (Epps was older than
Blehm).

Fremont sports

CLERC CLASSIC – The Boys Basketball team had three nail biting games
against Florida, Maryland, and Texas and finished in 4th place.  They
ranged from being two
points away from playing in the Championship Game and also won in overtime
in the first round that could have sent us to the losing bracket.  Robert
Gregor was the
team’s all-tournament player.

The Girls Basketball team also contested in the first round against
Maryland who then went to the Championship Game, losing by six.  We then
had a down day against
Florida and then dominated against Wisconsin finishing in 7th Place.
Esther Biser was the team’s all-tournament player.

The Cheerleading Team supported all the teams and waited patiently all
weekend for their big stage.  On Saturday during the Competition, they had
a great dancing
performance and fared well in all categories.  We needed to do better in
our stunts and tumbling so we finished in 6th place.  We had two
all-tournaments in Shaelyn
Johnson and Landen Gonzales.

All of the teams recognized that they played very hard and should be proud
of themselves.  They all represented CSD very well and Indiana was great
hosts.  The
Seniors are looking forward to finishing strong in league and sectional
play.  The Coaches and the younger players are already talking about how
we want to improve
this offseason with camps and weightlifting.  We’re excited to be hosting
Clerc Classic next year!

WILLIGAN TOURNAMENT – The Wrestling team will be going to the Willigan
Wrestling Tournament in Riverside on Thursday morning and compete in duals

Wrestlers!

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK – TIFFANY KUTSOV, our Senior Cheerleader has been a

it has really impacted the Cheerleading Team in a big way as they prepared
for their big weekend.  Great job!

ASD erupted to a huge 14-0 lead and a 19–1 lead as we struggled (mostly

Our Lady Roosters basketball team played host to American School for the Deaf on

her contributions to the basketball program over the years.

Now that Yasmin had her moment in-the spotlight, it was right to focus on the
task at hand and that’s to continue to win basketball games. Our girls weren’t
quite there mentally as over five minutes elapsed before we were able to get our
first basket. We tried to cut into ASD’s lead and came within 7 points a number
of times, but just couldn’t put together long enough of a run to threaten take
the lead and momentum from ASD.

performed better but in the end it was not enough to catch
Walsh.  Kioney Alvira Jurado had 17 points. Laci Stoffer had 10

Girls Basketball
Our girls traveled up to Indianapolis for the 20th annual Clerc Classic
this past weekend with a goal of a third straight championship.  With a
22-2 record before the tournament started, our team looked to right the
ship after losing 2 tough games to start the new year.  The first round
game would pair us with Wisconsin, a last minute replacement to New York
School for the Deaf (Fanwood) who couldn’t bring their girls team.  We
were able to get over any jitters early and won 47-12.

Our next game would be against the host school, Indiana, which would lead
to some unique challenges.  The game started on Friday evening but had to
stop late in the first quarter due to the court becoming very slick and
not playable.  The ultimate decision came down to ensuring player safety –
the game would resume the following morning at 8:00a.  Indiana would go on
a nice run and had an 11-point lead early in the 4th quarter when a
time-out was called.  During the time out, each player was challenged to
dig deep and find their will to win.  And they responded beautifully.  Our
press became an enigma for the Indiana team, resulting in rushed shots and
turnovers – giving us a huge momentum shift.  The game ended in regulation
with a 32-32 tie.  In overtime, the girls continued to battle and their
resilience resulted in a 38-35 win.

The Saturday night championship game would be the 6th straight meeting
between Texas and Maryland.  Our girls were able to dominate in just about
every statistical category and dominated their way to a 36-21 victory.
This is the third straight championship for the Texas girls team after
three straight second place finishes.

All tournament team: Ashlene Etkie and Michaela Kelley
Tournament MVP: Kalena Bumbala

Kudos to the Indiana staff for putting this tournament together and doing
a wonderful job with the court after Friday night!

Boys Basketball
Entering the tournament, there was speculation that Texas Boys Basketball
lost several seniors from last year and that we would not be competitive
this year. Clerc Committee originally ranked our team as 5th seed but
moved us up to fourth, which did not make a huge difference. So, we felt
disrespected entering into Clerc Classic at Indianapolis, IN.

Facing Indiana in the first round, we lost to Indiana nine years in a row
since 2011. Jared Beckler, their star, kept Indiana in the game single
handedly as he made several long threes behind NBA three point line. We
changed how we wanted to defend him in the second half. Texas Boys
dominated in the second half and won 52-42.

Entering the semifinals, I knew facing a loaded MSSD team would be
difficult, but our boys were definitely up to the task. Unfortunately, we
couldn’t find our offense in the first half. Model jumped to a quick 10-0
lead. Our boys never gave up and kept on battling. We found ourselves
trailing by only two with 1 minute to go. Our comeback was too late and we
lost 36-29.

Historically, we never played well in the third place because we were
usually lacking in focus and energy. This did not happen against Fremont
as it was an ugly low scoring game, but our energy and focus were there
the whole 32 minutes. We took a quick 5-0 lead, and dominated Fremont
defensively. Fremont averaged 53 points per game, and their lowest points
this year was 39 points. Against us, Fremont scored only 21 points!

Joshua Saaty and Jack Scarboro were named to Clerc All-Tournament. Our
record currently stands at 16-6, and our next focus is to win our
district! We are in the second place, but we truly believe we can win our
district. It means we cannot lose one more game down the road.

The Willigan Wrestling Tournament is coming up
this weekend at Riverside.

Who is Willigan?

It is Marty Willigan, just easily the greatest
deaf wrestler ever. He wrestled at Hofstra University
(NCAA-I program) – and reached the NCAA-I championship
finals in his weight class, losing only to Dan Gable,
an immortal in the world of wrestling.

In a way a Deaf Immortal wrestler vs a Hearing Immortal
wrestler!

After his wrestling days, he made it career of coaching
Gallaudet wrestling. His proudest moment took place in the
late eighties when three of his wrestlers – Todd Silvestri,
Toselli Silvestri and Charles Hammack, became NCAA-III
All-Americans.

DeafDigest Sports editor bumps into Marty from time to
time at deaf social events, and almost always, the
conversation briefly focuses on wrestling!

Gallaudet’s Sabina Shysh honored for playing four different sports in four
years with banner in Field House

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University standout student-athlete Sabina Shysh
got to see her banner unveiled in the Field House gym on January 14. The
ceremony cemented Shysh’s legacy as a Bison student-athlete as she became
the second four-year Bison student-athlete to play three or more sports.
Shysh, who played from 2014-19, played four sports during her career.

Shysh joins former Bison student-athlete Elena Ciccarelli, who was honored
in May 2015. Shysh first learned of this honor at last year’s athletic
banquet in May 2019. The banner was installed in the Field House gym
during the winter semester.

note:
while she was outstanding in basketball, soccer and track, one sport
sticks out – softball! She never played fast pitch softball in her life,
but it did not stop her from asking coach Justen Burns for a tryout.
It was her blazing speed in sprinting out these infield hits that made
her one of the key players on the team.

Question:

How was she able to balance track and softball at the same time. Not a problem –
track practices took place in the mornings and softball practices in the
afternoons.

She will be missed by all of her four coaches!

Florida Girls at Clerc Classic Results

Florida vs Riverside  – 1/16/20

Final Score: 35 to 41

Finally, we got our first taste of Clerc Classic game action against California
School for the Deaf (Riverside), and the end result was that we lost to them. At
the opening, we started off unusually slow in the 1st quarter.  We were not as
quick nor aggressive on our defense, and the same could be said about our
offense. After the first quarter we were down 6 points. We fired up our Lady
Dragons prior to the start of the 2nd quarter, and they responded by tying the
game 18 to 18 by the end of the second quarter. Aggression and quickness were
evident in the second quarter, however, as we went into the third quarter, they
were no more. Numerous turnovers. Many missed easy-layups and close-range shots.
And they went on for the entire second half, with Riverside leading all the way
to the final whistle. On the top of that, while we were supposed to deny the
Cubs’ best player, B. Goldstein the ball, she was able to score 20 points on us.
As we approached the final minutes in the 4th quarter, some of our starters were
in a foul trouble- Lourdine Jordonne had 5 fouls and Olivia had 4.  Basically,
because we were not mentally and physically ready, we gave this game away
without much of a battle. However, whilst remembering that it is our first
appearance to the Clerc Classic tournament, we came away with a learning
experience. We played in the gym fully packed with hundreds of spectators and
other teams watching us. All referees were Deaf. Naturally, we were disappointed
with the loss in the first round, because we were no longer playing for the
championship but for the 5th place.

Stats:

Olivia Brown: 9 pts, 6 reb, 5 ast, 5 stl

Oceana Brown: 10  pts, 5 reb, 1 ast, 3 stl

Lourdine Jordonne: 9 pts, 12 reb, 1 ast, 2 stl

Ja’Myra Harris: 3 pts, 3 reb, 1 stl

Florida vs Fremont  – 1/17/20

Final Score: 50-22

Our second game at Clerc Classic against California School for the Deaf
(Fremont). After the devastating loss to the Riverside, we were ready to do
better today! And we sure did! Our offense and defense were on fire, allowing
only 4 points in the entire first half. We were extremely proud of our lady
dragons’ performance against Fremont during the first half. We finished the
first half with our 22 to their 4. At the start of the second half, we started
strong and steady with our offense and defense, adding 16 more points to the
board before ending the 3rd quarter. We were able to score quickly and in
multiple ways by utilizing many of our offense tactics against Fremont. In the
4th and final quarter, we added other 12 points. We played the entire roster
lineup, and the benchers were able to maintain the cushy lead throughout the
game, finishing strong with our 50 to their 22. Lady Dragons were led by a
Sophomore, Olivia Brown, who notched 19 points on along with 7 assists, 7
rebounds, and 5 steals. Her younger sister and a Freshman, Oceana Brown,
contributed with 7 points, 10 steals, 2 blocks, and 2 steals. A Junior Lourdine
Jordonne scored a total of 9 points with 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, and 2
blocks, and Ja’Myra Harris, also a Junior, was on the fire with 9 points, 3
rebounds, 1 assist, 1 assist, 1 block and 2 steals. As for those off the bench,
Taria Pellicer, Shanna Cooley, Elsie Essex, Emma Hancock, and Shylah Thomas also
contributed points, rebounds, and assists with their hard work! Way to go, Lady
Dragons!

Stats:

Olivia Brown: 19 pts, 7 reb, 7 ast, 5 stl

Oceana Brown: 7  pts, 1 reb, 2 ast, 10 stl, 2 blk

Lourdine Jordonne: 9 pts, 7 reb, 2 ast, 2 stl, 2 blk

Record 8-3

Florida vs Model – 1/18/20

Final Score: 38-42

Our 3rd and the final Clerc Classic game for the 5th place and Consolation
Championship, against Model Secondary School for the Deaf (MSSD). Well, this
game has everything you would expect in a championship, except it was not in our
favor. We battled throughout the entire game, taking turns in the lead before
tying the game at 34. Then overtime. And we were the one who ended up being
unlucky.

In the first quarter, we were off to a sluggish start. Just like how we were in
the first game against Riverside. We quickly called a timeout to correct our
Lady Dragons’ mindset and to remind them of their devastating loss in the first
round at Clerc Classic. And that sure did wake them up- they quickly caught up
and took the lead within a few minutes. But their “fire” was not consistent- we
repeatedly made many careless mistakes which resulted in many turnovers. We did
not box out, we did not chase after a loose ball, we did not stop their fast
breaks, and we did not stay out of foul trouble. Because of those important
responsibilities we were supposed to do but did not, MSSD was able to take and
maintain lead. And we finished the first half with 14 to their 16. The same
could be said about the third quarter and the fourth quarter- with our
“inconsistent fire,” while we did make some good shots, we repeatedly made poor
decisions which allowed MSSD to stay close. But then, a critical moment. It came
where our lady dragons needed to truly come together and achieve the 5th place
victory. With only a few seconds left to spare before the final bell rings,
while being tied at 34, we needed to score one basket to declare ourselves the
Consolation Champion. We had the ball. We inbounded the pass perfectly, to an
open lady dragon. Her path was free and clear. Nobody was in her way to stop
her. The entire crowd were on their feet, watching her as she makes the run for
it. She executes her possibly 1,000th layup of her basketball career. The ball
goes up and hits the glass, before coming its way back down towards the rim. The
ball swirls around on the rim after it hits the rim… and misses! The final
whistle, and the game was tied at 34. We could not believe it. We literally had
the game in the bag. But we didn’t. Then as we see 4 minutes being added to the
clock, we went back to work. We huddled and discussed our game plan. Then our
lady dragons were back on the floor. Well, our “inconsistent fire” continued,
and we let the game get away from us. We lost to MSSD with a 38 to their 42. But
I can tell you this- this game was not without hard work. The lady dragons truly
worked hard, we just could not secure the win. Had we been precise with our
defense and offense we probably would have gone home with a 5th place plague.
Instead, we finished in the 6th place. Nevertheless, we come away with this
unforgettable experience, because we were able to play against many strong deaf
school basketball teams. We were able to see our old friends and make new
friends.

Upcoming in a week- Mason Dixon tournament at South Carolina School for the
Deaf! Go Lady Dragons!

There is one more team in the Mason-Dixon
region – the Atlanta Day School for the Deaf.
Mason-Dixon rules require all participating
schools to be member of own state high school
athletic association. Atlanta Area has never
been a member, whereas sister school Georgia
SD is a member.

Plus there is a big concern – Atlantic Area
is a day school, meaning no dorms for visiting
teams. Hotel costs can be prohibitive.

Yes, Atlantic Area plays a few games with nearby
deaf schools during the regular season, meaning
these schools had to obtain waivers from the
state to play a non-member school.

random deafsports talk

part of a posting

The conversations about hand signals and sign stealing have resurfaced an
old baseball legend: That hand signs, as we know them, were popularized by
deaf baseball players in the 1880’s.

The legend
There are two baseball players involved in this legend. The first is Ed
“Dummy” Dundon, who played in the early 1800s and is thought to be the
first deaf player to umpire a professional baseball game, in 1886. The
second is William “Dummy” Hoy, who started his career a few years later.
(A note: Yes, such offensive nicknames were commonplace at the time.)

Both players were deaf and used hand signs to communicate with their
teammates. Around the 1950s, Hoy started getting credit for popularizing
the use of hand signals as a strategic form of communication. Like so many
baseball legends, the story stuck, and is the type of secondhand
information forever knocking around in the brains of the sport’s biggest
fans.

Question:
Did Hoy invent these signs? Or was Dundon the first one with these
signs?

Everyone knows who Hoy was. Practically no one knows who Dundon
was (as the first deaf major leaguer!

The Washington School for the Deaf won the sportsmanship award presented
by the Evergreen Football Officials Association.

……………………

Russian deaf MMA fighter

part of newspaper story

ASKAROV: “IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING”

“I want to show that impossible is nothing, and with hard work and
dedication you could achieve everything in life.”

If fighting hometown favorites Brandon Moreno in Mexico City or Tim
Elliott in Las Vegas is an added stress for rising flyweight star Askar
Askarov, it’s not.

“For me, each fight is like a sparring session because I have trouble with
my hearing,” said Askarov. “I cannot hear the boos and the crowd itself;
that’s why I’m always calm.”

That was evident throughout his exciting three-rounder with Moreno in
September, where both 125-pounders left it all in the Octagon before a
draw verdict was rendered. For Askarov, it wasn’t his favorite
performance, but he did keep his unbeaten record intact with a fight that
made an immediate impression on UFC fans.

“The most important lesson I took from my UFC debut is that you have to
come to Mexico in advance to get used to the climate and get comfortable,
in general,” said the 10-0-1 Askarov. “I was 100 percent ready and I wish
I could show my whole skill set, but it is what it is, and we are moving
forward.”

“Forward” is this Saturday’s showdown with Elliott in a bout that could
very well steal the show from the bigger names on the UFC 246 card. Las
Vegas is a long way from the village where Askarov grew up in Dagestan,
but he won’t forget where he came from or how it affected what he does
today.

“My village has a population of one thousand,” said Askarov, who found his
way as a youngster to the only wrestling gym in town. “I always was into
combat sports so I guess there was no way I wouldn’t do wrestling.”

It soon became a way of life of Askarov, a place where the partially deaf
wrestler could compete on a level playing field. And even while spending
most of his free time on the mats, he saw wrestling as a way to another
sport down the line.

“We have a lot of Dagestani guys in the UFC today maybe because of our
history and culture,” said Askarov. “Fighting is in our DNA.”

And it was certainly in the DNA of Askarov, who won several titles in
wrestling, grappling and MMA, chief among them the Deaflympics wrestling
title in 2017.

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Inspired Bison come through with 67-65 win

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University men’s basketball held on to defeat
Penn St.-Abington here Wednesday evening in the Field House as the Bison
prevailed 67-65 in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) game. The
Bison played inspired on the one-year anniversary of the passing of
longtime assistant coach  John Charles “Bird” Perry, ’96.

Gallaudet (2-11, 2-2 NEAC) came out on fire and scored the first eight
points and 18 of the first 23 points as the Bison led 18-5  just five
minutes into the contest. Senior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.)
netted 16 of his game-high 22 points during that run. Valencia was a
perfect 5-for-5 from 3-point range and even converted a 4-point play after
he made a 3-pointer and got fouled at the 15:04 mark.

Penn St.-Abington (7-6, 2-2 NEAC) contained Valencia for the remainder of
the game but his backcourt partner Preston Kelly (Fishers, Ind.) kept pace
and scored 15 of his 21 points in the first half. The Nittany Lions slowly
chipped away at the Bison lead and was able to cut the margin down to
four, 35-31, by halftime.

In the second half, the Nittany Lions took a brief two-point lead, 41-39,
at the 14:34 mark before Gallaudet went on an 11-0 run to regain the lead
for good.

Penn St.-Abington had two chances to win the game in the waning seconds
but both 3-point shots didn’t fall.

note:
always great to defeat a winning team. Abington was 7-5 prior to the
game with Gallaudet.

Game slips away from Gallaudet in final minute

WASHINGTON – This is a game the Gallaudet University women’s basketball
team wishes it could go back and replay the final minute of regulation.

The Bison held a five-point lead over Penn St.-Abington in a key North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) South Division game here Wednesday
night in the Field House with 52 seconds left. A costly Bison foul led to
two made free throws and a missed Gallaudet jump shot gave the Nittany
Lions a chance to tie it on a 3-pointer with 11 seconds left. GU missed a
final shot, with four seconds left, as the teams went into overtime
knotted at 62.

This was the first overtime game for Gallaudet (4-8, 2-2 NEAC) and Penn
St.-Abington (5-7, 3-1 NEAC) this season as the Nittany Lions won, 77-74.

random deafsports talk

what is the criteria, according to DeafDigest
Sports editor, when a deaf team defeats a
hearing team in any sport?

Does the hearing team have a losing record
(a weak team) or a winning record (a strong
team) or a break-even or near-break even
record (a pesky team)?

This has always been the criteria for years!

random deafsports talk

This is a true story. Bob Westermann was a first
year coach with the Model football team in 1977.

Model had a 3-5 record in its first season of
football, but they were winless against deaf
teams (0-3) but were able to defeat hearing
teams (3-2).

Bob and his coaching staff was puzzled why
they couldn’t defeat deaf teams that were
really not that much stronger than hearing
teams.

He then realized he did not hide his
sideline signals from the other deaf
teams. They were watching his signals
and making adjustments to foil Model!

Since that season, he and his staff
became more careful in hiding their
signals so that opposing teams cannot
spy on it.

Just almost immediately during the following
seasons Model became a national powerhouse
among deaf teams.

When asked about it, Bob was angry –
saying it is the coaches’ code of ethics
not to spy on signals from the other teams!

Deaf eyes. Hearing eyes – same thing,
to try to spy on other teams’ signals!

Well, the baseball electronic spying
scandal continues to another day.
