Gallaudet baseball

Gallaudet sweeps Valley Forge on Opening Day

WASHINGTON – It was a picture perfect Opening Day for the Gallaudet
University baseball team and the Bison didn’t disappoint their sun-soaked
fans here Sunday with a sweep of University of Valley Forge at Hoy Field.
GU won the first game 13-5 and rallied to score 12 runs in the bottom of
the sixth in a 16-4 victory as the game was called for darkness

DeafDigest Sports editor’s comments:

DeafDigest Sports editor watched the first game. While Gallaudet
pulled ahead 5-0 by the end of third inning, there was a big
concern – two starters were injured and taken out of the game.
Yet, the Gallaudet bench rose to the occassion and contributed
mightily to these two wins. Rookie Austin Sliva-Wynne, whose
father was a great Gallaudet pitcher way back in the nineties,
is extremely versatile with a great arm. He started at right
field and threw out a runner that tried to advance from
second to third! And when the starting pitcher tired and
gave up three runs in the fifth inning, Austin took over
as the relief pitcher, and while he was a bit wild, stemmed
the opponent’s rally. And in the second game, he started
at shortstop, his third position of the day!

Gallaudet softball

DeafDigest Sports editor watched parts of the softball
practice that was taking place at the same time with
the baseball game. Both fields sit next to each other.

The team was finally able to practice outdoors after
being confined to indoor practices because of the
cold weather. It was the first time the women were
able to run the bases, practice on these trap and
cut off plays and to chase the fly balls. The
team practiced for weeks without their best
player – Kelsey Hudson, who was busy playing
basketball. She will rejoin the team this week
as the basketball season is over.

It is Justen Burns’ first season as head coach
after serving as assistant the past few seasons.

Team roster is at:

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Top seed Bison, hosting the NEAC tournament at home,
will play in the quarterfinals on Saturday, awaiting
the winner of the Morrisville State-Wells opening round
game. These teams are extremely competitive, hence
a big challenge for the Bison.

past head Gallaudet men’s basketball coach

Gallaudet has a number of past coaches that moved
on to other coaching positions at other colleges
(John Becker and Kevin Cook). Here is another one:

His first stop was an assistant, then the head coach, at Gallaudet, a
private university in Washington D.C. for the education of the deaf and
hard of hearing.
