Gallaudet updates

men’s basketball

Valencia nets career-high 45 points in 81-80 loss to Immaculata

FREDERICK, Md. – Junior guard Noah Valencia (Fremont, Calif.) poured in a
career-high 45 points here Saturday in the MMI Tip-Off Tournament
consolation game but it wasn’t enough to lift the Bison to victory over
Immaculata University at Hood College. The Mighty Macs hung on to win
81-80 in the tournament sponsored by Mid-Maryland Musculoskeletal
Institute Division of the Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics.

The Bison led by two points, 75-73, with 2:47 left in regulation before
Immaculata knotted the game at 75. The Mighty Macs pulled ahead 80-75
before GU tried to rally in the waning seconds. Freshman Corey Smith
(Miami, Fla.) made a layup with 26 seconds on the scoreboard to cut the
margin to three, 80-77. Smith finished with 12 points.

Valencia was named to the all-tournament team for his efforts during the
two-day tournament.

note:
45 points in one game is not a Gallaudet record. The record is 47
points held by Kevin Milligan in the 1964-65 season.

women’s basketball

CAMDEN, N.J. – The Gallaudet University women’s basketball team lost its

Senior guard/forward Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) led all scorers with
23 points, nine rebounds and three assists. Sophomore guard Emelia Beldon
(Frederick, Md.) and senior guard Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) scored 15
and 14 points, respectively.

Gallaudet (0-3) won four of 11 events and was led by junior Julia
Miller-Notestone (Medford, Ore.), who won two individual events and was a
member of GU’s first-place 200-yard medley relay team.

WASHINGTON – The 2018 season for Gallaudet University’s football team
ended here on a chilly autumnal Saturday afternoon in a 34-7 Eastern
Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) loss to SUNY Maritime College.

In the second half, Gallaudet scored on its first possession as it covered
75 yards on five plays. Junior Damonte Bray (Clinton, Md.) had a 45-yard
run and Hutchinson added runs of 10 and 16 yards before sophomore RJ
Randle (McCalla, Ala.) scored from seven yards out at the 12:17 mark as GU

random deafsports thoughts

One of DeafDigest Sports editor’s interest is maintaining
a list of deaf professional baseball players, current
and past (both majors and minors).

He once made a trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame library
at Cooperstown, NY, hoping to do some research, if any,
on these deaf baseball players.

Yes, you guessed it right; the library was shut down
for repairs and renovations!

Deaf LSU Swimmer Trains For Summer Olympics

LSU swimmer and Deaf record holder, Matthew Klotz, hopes to represent
Hungary in the 2020 Summer Olympics.

Klotz is a dual citizen in America and Hungary, and he hopes to one day
soon swim for his home country.

Klotz is very different than other athletes on the LSU swim team. He is
Deaf and uses hearing aids but actually sees this as an advantage.

He holds 16 metals under his belt from Deaf and American Competitions, and
he is well recognized in the swimming community.

Klotz is currently working on switching his citizenship to make it
possible for him to swim and represent Hungary.

…………………………………………………………..

A fact wrong about Dummy Hoy?

from Ripley’s Believe it or Not

Make no mistake, William Hoy represented a true baseball legend playing
for the Cincinnati Reds and a handful of other teams from 1888 to 1902.
All told, he boasted an average of .288 and played in 1,797 games. He
claimed 2,048 hits, 40 homers, 1,429 runs, 725 bats in, and 274 assists.
He did great things for baseball.

He also helped change American perceptions about the aurally and vocally
challenged. You see, Hoy was completely deaf and mute having contracted
meningitis at the age of three. Yet, his disabilities never stopped him
from rocking the majors. So, it stands to reason that he invented the hand
signals used in baseball, right?

Wrong! While Hoy used hand signals, they came from his coaches and other
teammates and were gaining currency in ballparks across the US. Why?
Because the noisy din of baseball crowds made it difficult for umpires,
coaches, and teammates to communicate. Two years after Hoy’s retirement,
the larger-than-life umpire, Bill Klem, made them standard practice.

random deafsports thoughts

A school complained that their athletic results are never printed
in DeafDigest Sports. That school, for the past 10 years or so
has never sent in their results to DeafDigest Sports.

The DeafDigest Sports response was this:
just send me your sports results and it will be printed!

that simple? Yes!

part of newspaper story

Alabama School for the Deaf football team pushes past limits
while making school history

TALLADEGA, Ala. (WIAT) — The Alabama School for the Deaf has fielded a
football team for 126 years, claiming 15 league championships and six
national championships. But this season, the Silent Warriors are trying
something extraordinary. For the first time ever they are playing with the
Alabama School for the Blind.

“The only question I asked myself was ‘how was I going to be able to
communicate?’,” said School for the blind senior Geordan Carter. “Me
being visually impaired the other guys being hearing impaired.”

The idea came from the head coach, Paul Kulick. He saw one major flaw in
his team.

“I’m looking at my boys and we didn’t have any size,” said Kulick.
“I’m looking at ASB, they had bigger players. I should have them come
over here and play for us.”

note:
DeafDigest Sports editor watched a football game between
Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind at Hampton (not Staunton)
and North Carolina School for the Deaf way back in the
late eighties. Two or three players on the Hampton team
were blind – and in fact, one of them intercepted a pass!
Actually the pass was batted down on the line of scrimmage
and the ball fell into the blind player’s hands.

At Gallaudet there is a first year athlete who formerly
attended NTID. While attending NTID classes he never
went out for sports, but after transferring to Gallaudet,
he immediately joined an athletic team.

Fanwood’s defenses could not prevent Montfort Academy from reaching the
net, and the final score was 6-0 The team played hard and showed true
sportsmanship to the visiting team.

Final record: 4-11 (League 0-4)

Volleyball

Volleyball ESDAA Tournament

New York School for the Deaf hosted the ESDAA tournament in White Plains,
New York. There were 11 participating schools. It was an exciting weekend.

We began the tournament playing 1 set round robin games to determine the
playoff seeding. The teams in our pool were the Marie Philips School
(MPS), St. Mary School for the Deaf (SMSD), Lexington School for the Deaf
(LEX), Delaware School for the Deaf (DSD), and our own Lady Tornadoes.

Our first game of the tournament was against SMSD. The girls were very
nervous because the gym was full of excited Fanwood fans. By the end of
match, the girls were finally able to pull the score up, but it was too
late. We lost to SMSD, 23-25. Next, we lost a close match to LEX with a
score of 22-25. The girls decided to get fired up and played their best
against MPS. We beat them with a score of 25-24. Thanks to Britney’s
amazing kill & last serving point! Last match was against DSD and we beat
them with a score of 25-8. Our record for our pool was 2 wins & 2 losses.
SMSD had the same record as the Golden Tornadoes. They beat us in the
head-to-head match, so that put us at seed #4 for pool A and into the
Silver bracket.

Game Highlights for Round Robin games (in total)
Silmara Campos- 2 aces
Kiara Herrera- 3 aces
Britney Pon- 4 ace, 3 kills
Samantha Pon-18 aces

On Saturday morning, we entered Silver bracket. We played a one set match
against Pennsylvania School for the Deaf. Unfortunately, the girls were
not able to mentally rally together for a win and were defeated, 22-25.
Silmara earned 3 aces & 1 assist. Kiara scored 3 kills. Britney earned one
ace, 1 kill and two assists. Samantha got 1 ace & 1 assist.

After the tournament, the girls learned that a positive mentality is very
important to playing well individually and as a cohesive unit. Even though
the outcome of Fanwood’s team wasn’t what we expected, it was a fun
tournament for all. Next year, WSPD will host the ESDAA tournament. Our
current record is 11-8.

New York School for the Deaf vs EF Academy- WIAA Champion

We were advancing to Final due to Montfort Academy non-show up. The game
was forfeit with final score 1-0 and advanced to the championship game.

We lost the WIAA Champion game against EF Academy with a score of 0-3,
(18-25, 14-25 & 17-25). Our volleyball team had a good season with many
new players. It was a bittersweet night because it was Samantha Pon’s
very last game. Our final record is 13-9.

Game Highlights
Silmara Campos- 1 ace & 1 kill
Kalia Gathers- 2 aces & 1 assist
Kiara Herrera- 1 ace & 1 assist
Anniesha Persaud- 1 assist
Britney Pon- 1 ace, 1 kill, 1 dig, & 1 block
Samantha Pon- 1 ace, 1 assist, 3 kills & 1 block

random deafsports thoughts

a basketball coach at a hearing college complained that
his deaf player has a hard time following instructions.

Coach would say, go left and the player would go right

Coach would say, go right and the palyer would go left

Did that deaf player have an interpreter? Don’t think so,
but that deaf player has a repuation for refusing to
accept his deafness, hence offers for an interpreter
would be rejected!  Very sad.

random deafsports thoughts

When DeafDigest Sports editor covered deaf schools sports
in 1986, as many as half dozen schools fielded swimming
teans.

How many deaf schools still have swimming teams nowadays?

DeafDigest Sports editor only knows of one – Florida
School for the Deaf and Blind.

dedicating this edition to a departed racer

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to Kitty O’Neil
that departed us. She was deaf and during the seventies

cars as fast as 600 miles per hour.

When not racing cars she was a Hollywood movies stunts
woman.

Fri Nov 9 Texas at John Paul II Catholic
this is their last scheduled regular season game

games as long as they win and advance).

………………………………………………….

Fremont football & cross country

The football season has ended with a 49-8 loss at Fort Bragg.  The score
was not the indication of what happened in the game as CSD moved the ball
well and threatened but was unable to finish drives and had costly fumbles
and penalties.  On the other side, Fort Bragg is a tremendous program who
has been there and done that at a higher level year in and out.  We all
had a bittersweet moment after the game and the long drive back thanking
our seniors and the cheerleaders for leading us to a memorable 9-3 season.

This week will be a quiet week in Athletics with the exception of the
Cross Country Championships tomorrow as all of our winter sports will be
conducting tryouts.

Athlete of the Week – MILES GONZALEZ, our Junior Quarterback and Captain
knows that he plays in a position with hefty expectations and is subject
to a lot of criticism.  However, Miles has steadily improved his play
every week thanks to his hard-working attitude by always being on time to
practice, weightlifting, and film session.  In his last three games, we
saw his play go up to  a completely new level and Miles finished the
season with 1,549 passing yards, 18 touchdowns to 8 interceptions, and 60%
completions which is a difficult number at just over 200 attempts.  We
will look to build from this momentum and balanced offense over to next

random deafsports thoughts

Kitty O’Neil was a diver and was on the USA team during the
1965 Deaflympics.

Unfortunately, she dived unofficially due to insufficent
entries among deaf women divers from other nations.

She was pretty much upset upon learning that her diving
events would be unofficial, and not official, and wished
she had stayed home instead of making the trip from
her home in California to Washington, DC

from a past Texas School for the Deaf football player

My TSD football team beat Waco Reicher twice, but we lost the
1987 game with them at our home field. A 4th quarter punt
attempt by our punter went bad because of a center snap that
went over his head!

…………………………………………………

302 career wins and no more

Football coach Gary Klingensmith, who is deaf and
played football at Penn State and coached three
seasons at Gallaudet, has closed out his football
career with 302 high school wins in 50 seasons.

Plus 4 coaching wins at Gallaudet.

His last coaching game was a Juniata HS (PA) 28-19
win over Newport HS.

………………………………………….

deafness and deaf auto racers

as edited for brevity from the Autosport Plus publication

The challenges facing disabled racing drivers

A deaf racer cannot wear the CI because of the crash helmet
he wears. A perfect crash helmet for the deaf racer has
not been yet designed!

Deafness has these disadvantages – cannot hear engine
noisem, cannot hear tire noise, cannot hear wind nosie.

Also cannot hear if there are racers behind him, trying
to go past him!

note:
Greg Gunderson, a Gallaudet student, racing during the
summer months, won the South Dakota sprint championship.
He used the prize money to pay off Gallaudet tuition bills
during his senior year! That was during the late eighties.

newspaper story

Carolinas Schools for the Deaf 64, Ga. School for the Deaf 52
The Georgia School for the Deaf football team lost a heartbreaker to close
out its season when the Tigers came up short 64-52 Saturday on the road
against The Carolinas Schools for the Deaf.

After giving up two early touchdowns to The Carolinas, the Tigers tried to
recover but couldn’t close the gap. The Tigers got within six points —
58-52 — but The Carolinas scored a late touchdown to put the win out of
reach.

“We made some really bad errors in the first quarter and they jumped out
on us,” GSD head coach Erik Whitworth said. “We were playing catch-up
the whole game.”

Demarco Brown finished his last game with the Tigers (2-5) on a high note
with 339 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 28 carries. He was also 3
for 11 for 21 yards through the air. Jamie Lang had 151 yards and four
touchdowns on 13 carries.

random deafsports thoughts

cannot help but wonder about deaf athletes on RIT’s
sports teams. Except for one person who dutifully
reported updates on deaf athletes for several years
before leaving his job and moving on, the RIT
athletic office pretty much do not do good write ups
on their deaf athletes. The office may do a write up
if the deaf athlete is good, but not if the athlete
is not really that good!

random deafsports thoughts

Deaflympics is Deaf Culture, always?

Not always!

Many mainstreamed athletes refuse to identify themselves
as “deaf” – and while they participate in the Deaflympics,
they do not use sign language and do not mingle socially
with the sign language deaf athletes. And when they
come home, they proudly put their Deaflympics participation
on their resumes, while at the same time denying their
deafness!
