Has DeafDigest Sports editor ever been in touch with

No. DeafDigest Sports editor started covering deaf
high school sports in 1986, thus missing him by
several years.

St Mary’s boys track

Yesterday, the Bisons took on The Falk School in our first track meet
of the season.  Falk came away with the victory in a close match up.
We had some strong efforts by the veterans as well as the rookies
that moved up this season.  The temperatures were in the mid 50′s
with lots of sun which already is better than what we had last track
season!  See the results below…

OSD’s golf program is still in its infant stage, The golf
program was established in 2014 to provide more opportunity
for students to play other sports. In its 2nd year of existence,
we have 5 boys and 4 girls on the golf teams. Today, one of
our freshmen girls, Grace Woodall, made history. She’s the
first ever from OSD to play in a regional tournament. She
had to play in the qualifying round today and play well to
advance. The regionals will be held in 2 places next week.

2015 USADB National Tournament Results

Greetings and here’s a quick tidbits of recent tournament:
- The last time USADB had its national tournament in Bay Area was
1983!  We were thrilled to have it again here in Oakland two weeks
ago.  We had 14 Men and 6 Women teams in our tournament and overall,
the turnout was a success.  

- We also celebrated 25th anniversary of Women’s program in USADB. 
The last time we had Hall of Fame ceremony was in 2009 and we are so
glad to bring it back to honor 9 new inductees at our Hall of Fame
Ceremony.  USADB would like to thank Janice Logan & Nancy Opheikens
for their time in putting together Hall of Fame information this
year!  We also would like to thank Myron Greenstone who had to dig
some information out boxes to provide some historical facts.  A video
of the ceremony will be posted shortly.

- In the Men’s division, after finishing runner-ups two consecutive
years, Showstoppers (Maryland) finally showed up to win Men’s title
by beating D.M.V. (DC, Maryland, Virginia) 69-65 in the championship
game.  Layton Seeber who averaged 31 points per game was voted Most
Valuable Player.  Orion Palmer of DMV was voted Most Outstanding
Player.  Michael Ashford who was voted Coach of the Tournament by
guiding Chicago Rebels to surprisingly 5th place.

- West Stars (South California & Arizona) won the Women’s title
beating the defending champions, DC Storms 58-44.  Ida Dotson who was
voted MVP for a record 7th time in her career helped West Stars to
title. Nukeita Hayes of East Storms was voted Most Outstanding
Player. Chicago Lady Panthers continued to improve their performance
each year by finishing fourth place. Sarah Faber of Chicago Lady
Panthers was voted Coach of the Tournament.

- California Ballerz won Men’s Division 2 title by beating Oregon
69-48.  Antoine Nathaniel was voted Division 2 MVP.  Shannon Anderson
who believed to be first woman ever to coach a men basketball team on
a national level was voted Division 2 Coach of the Tournament by
guiding Oregon men team to perform very well!

- Boys and Girls High School All-Stars had an opportunity to play on
the weekend as well showcasing their skills.  USADB look forward to
seeing them play again in our annual national tournament!  Thank you
Vance and Kevin for making this happen!

- A complete bracket, box scores, statistics and awards for both
divisions can be found at: http://www.usadb.us/2015usadbresults  - be
sure to click on “download” on the bottom of each document to obtain
your own copy.  
Most importantly, 

- USADB want to express our gratitude to JAMTOWN (www.jamtown.net)
for making their wonderful & beautiful facility for our tournament. 
Not only that but their staff were wonderful and helpful through out
the weekend!  Thank you JAMTOWN and we hope the experience was
rewarding for you all!

- Of course, USADB will not be able to operate fully without our
generous sponsors who believed and supported our organization.  Thank
you Sorenson, AT&T, Purple, Deaf Basketball League, San Francisco
Deaf Club and the California School for the Deaf, Fremont. 

- USADB would like to thank numerous of volunteers who helped and run
the tournament – from admissions, security, to
statistics/scorekeeper/timekeeper and many others for some who worked
through out the weekend.  USADB would like to thank three certain
iindividuals who helped and ensure everything go smooth – Juddie
Lamberton (admissions), Ron Bye (Stats) and Bob Morrison (Security).
Without them, we will not accomplish too much.

Once again, congratulations Showstoppers and West Stars for winning
2015 titles and to all other teams who participated in the tournament
too!  We are already looking forward to 2016 tournament!  Stay tuned
for upcoming announcements on where 2016 tournament will be.

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.

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!
