newspaper story

St. Francis vs California School for the Deaf (at Santa Cruz High), 7:30
p.m. — The St. Francis High Sharks started the John Ausman era with a
big 37-0 win over Pajaro Valley last week but will have a much tougher
task come Friday at Santa Cruz High.

The California School for the Deaf Eagles, a private school in Fremont for
the hearing impaired,  will come into town and try to make it two wins in
a row against the Sharks. Last season, the Eagles blew out the Sharks
49-29 in their regular-season finale behind the running backs Calel
Aramboles and Spezio Harmount’s five touchdowns. Both runners are back
this year and last week they helped their team hammer Turlock Christian in
a 46-14 season-opening win.

St. Francis senior quarterback Derric Estrada-Haro missed last year’s
game because of injury but this time around he will be behind center
leading the Sharks’ offense. The precise signal caller completed all
three of his passes last week and two went for scores.

Marie Philip Volleyball – Kentucky Spike-Out Tournament Report

Dates: Friday August 25 and Saturday August 26
Location: Kentucky School for the Deaf (Danville, KY)

Last weekend the Marie Philip Lady Ghosts volleyball team opened our
season early by flying to Kentucky to participate in the KSD’s 1st Annual
Pre-Season Spike-Out tournament.  Since the tournament took place before
our tryouts this week (and classes start after Labor Day), we selected all
the available veteran players from last year’s season to represent our
school in the tournament.  Knowing that we would not have subs and cannot
afford injuries, for four practice sessions before our tournament, we
worked on fitness and modified our playbook to accommodate our small
roster.

The tournament’s format was best of three for all teams, then there would
be a final placement match (1st place, 3rd place, 5th place, and 7th
place) based on win-loss records and tiebreakers.  It was different from
our usual ESDAA tournament (round robin for one set only for elimination
playoff seeding).  It was a great opportunity for the team to try a new
tournament format and to build upon our experience.

Friday we were scheduled to play Georgia, Michigan, and Kentucky. 
Saturday we were scheduled to play Atlanta Area, Kansas (back to back),
Virginia, and Tennessee (back to back).

Match 1 – Georgia (4 PM) – 1-2
We had to change our playbook slightly during our practice week and our
players underestimated how important those changes would be to memorize. 
They were in wrong positions several times and gave the Tigers easy
points.  Georgia won the first set 25-14.  Our players got more
comfortable with the new gym and Rawlings volleyball and were able to ride
an excellent serving performance by Shayla Rochette (9th, 13 consecutive
service points) to win the second set 25-12.  We rode the momentum to a
7-3 lead, but Georgia showed great tenacity and took advantage of our
starting six’s lack of playing time together for a well deserved 15-8
third set and match victory.

Match 2 – Michigan (7 PM) – 2-1
Fortunately we had some down time after Georgia.  After dinner the coaches
required the players to take out their playbooks and study before the next
match.  It paid off against Michigan.  We won the first set 25-16.  In the
second set, we couldn’t control a small second set lead and the Tartars
pulled off a 25-20 win.  We kept our heads together in the third set and
won, 15-7.

Match 3 – Kentucky (9:30 PM) – 0-2
We were transported to the tournament’s second gym in Danville High
School.  DHS obviously had a different court and also used a different
Tachikara ball (red/white/blue scheme rather than the white Rawlings). 
Kentucky had won a match at DHS earlier in the day so they were more
mentally prepared for the differences than we were.  Kentucky won the
first set 25-14.  Our players fought very hard in the second set, but we
made too many mistakes with court positioning for defense.  The Colonels
held on to win the set and match 25-20.

Match 4 – Atlanta Area (10 AM) – 2-0
We had a favorable Saturday schedule.  While playing back-to-back is
usually not preferred for volleyball, even more so for a team with only
six players and a couple of nagging minor injuries, the first team for
each back-to-back were still progressing in their basic skills and
strategies.  The Panthers’ players had a different approach on the court
while serving and receiving and it threw our girls off at first.  I called
time-out and told them how to adjust to it.  Our girls followed that
strategy perfectly and we were able to ride strong serving to win both
sets, 25-6 and 25-13.

Match 5 – Kansas (11 AM) – 0-2
Out of the eight schools in the tournament, we had the fewest girls and
the youngest players (none of the other teams had 7th graders, we had two,
and only one senior).  We were also the only school from the Northeast
too.  An interested and prepared Kansas team studied ours during the
Atlanta match and had their own strategies to beat us.  Our coaches warned
our players to be prepared for it.  I reminded them of Kansas’ nationwide
standing last year (1st in Division II) and told them it was big chance to
show schools unfamiliar to us exactly who we were.  During the first
time-out I decided on the strategy and our girls executed it very well and
we stayed very close before losing the first set 20-25.  In the second set
the Jackrabbits used the three-minute break to make adjustments.  At the
same time, our girls were pretty much spent after that first set (a couple
of our girls thought it was the third set during the break!).  So we
couldn’t keep up in the next set, and Kansa
s won 25-8.

Match 6 – Virginia (2 PM) – 2-0
We went back to DHS for the final two round robin matches.  Virginia would
not win its first match of the tournament until the very last one for 7th
place, so our girls used the match to warm up for what we knew would be a
Tennessee team trying to stay in contention for the championship match. 
The first set went as we hoped, a 25-5 win.  In the second set the
Cardinals had one player who served well and they made a few heads up play
to stay close with us.  I called time-out, reminded our girls that we
needed to conserve our energy, and the Lady Ghosts regained their focus to
win the second set and match, 25-12.

Match 7 – Tennessee (3 PM) – 0-2
Tennessee had a slow start to its tournament, but improved more rapidly
than the Lady Ghosts.  In the first set, we made several careless mistakes
with court positioning and passing.  The further we fell behind, the more
upset our girls got with themselves.  The Vikings won the first set 25-17. 
Between sets the coaches told our girls that their emotions would decide
whether we qualify for the 3rd place match or the 5th place match.  It hit
them hard and they played a bit better at first in the second set, 
Unfortunately they were exhausted and were behind 23-17 with the Vikings
about to serve for the win.  I called our last time-out and told the girls
we have lost sets with leads like that, and we have caught up from worse
deficits before.  Tennessee lost the serve and it was Sabrina Rodrigues
(10th)’s turn to serve.  Those who have followed our team for years know
how experienced she is.  She can jump serve but I had told use standing
floaters instead to conserve her energy
.  Tennessee gave up several points trying to receive her, but a serving
error gave them another chance to win.  They were not able to capitalize,
so the serve fell to Samantha Fernsebner (7th).  She showed amazing poise
for someone who was, earlier in the set, frustrated with herself over
several net play errors.  Tennessee could not receive her and all of a
sudden we had a 25-24 lead!  Unfortunately we could not capitalize and our
players forgot the win by two points rule, so they didn’t have their game
mind on when Tennessee got another point to lead 26-25.  They secured the
next set point to win the match 27-25.  As five of our girls iced
themselves right after the match, we received kind praises from the KSD
volunteers and even both referees.  One of the referees said that it was
one of the most exciting matches that she had ever officiated.  Our
players would have preferred to win, but praises from the locals was a
nice consolation.

Our players returned to KSD with a 3-4 record and slim hopes that we might
have somehow secured 4th place in the round robin based on tiebreakers. 
That opportunity went to Georgia on virtue of their match win over us in
our first match of our tournament.  It was a great learning moment for the
girls to take every match in a tournament seriously, no matter what.  We
coaches told them to use that disappointment for future tournaments.  They
accepted our #5 seed to take on #6 Michigan for 5th place honors.

5th Place Match – Michigan (2-0)
Our girls knew that Michigan would be trying very hard to avenge its round
robin loss to us.  Even so, the Lady Ghosts were tired and lethargic from
the long tournament.  However, as the first set progressed, their focus
and play got better and better.  Setter Zora Elliott-Mendelsohn (8th) had
her best setting performance since last year’s ESDAA tournament.  Norma
Aldana (12th) made some key sliding receptions and kills.  Carleigh Babbit
(7th) rescued a few errant receptions that would have otherwise been
Tartar points.  We took both sets, 25-18 and 25-16.

Congratulations to Kansas for winning the championship over Tennessee 2-0,
Kentucky for winning 3rd place over Georgia in an exciting 2-1 contest,
and Virginia for winning 7th place over Atlanta Area 2-1.  Also
congratulations to our two All Star representatives, Sabrina and Shayla. 
We would like to thank everyone at the Kentucky School for the Deaf for
their wonderful hospitality and tournament.  It was a rich experience for
all of our girls and both coaches.

This week we will have our tryouts to grow our roster.  Our season opener
will be September 13 at home against IGC league opponent Chapel Hill
Chauncy Hall.  We are starting our season with a 4-4 record.

Gallaudet football preview

Season Preview: Bison continue their build upward

WASHINGTON – A young and inexperienced Gallaudet University football
team took its hits in 2016 as they were forced to learn on the fly. That
experience will prove to be invaluable for the Bison this season as
Gallaudet returns 42 players from last year and will enter the new season
with 76 players donning the buff and blue.

full story at:
http://www.gallaudetathletics.com/sports/fball/2017-18/releases/seasonpreview

note:
76 players on the roster is a recent high. It had been in the low
sixties in recent seasons. This is great.

Tonight’s game was mostly Varsity girls.  We were missing one (Kira), who
had an injury last week and we had four JV girls and two MS girls join us
who were with us for practice before school started.  Overall, it was a
good opening night.  The girls
seemed nervous and were still learning the offense and defense.  We still
have a lot of team chemistry to work on and of course skills to improve
upon.  However, for only two weeks of practice, they are looking good!

We will work on fixing our weaknesses this week and look forward to our
games this week!  I’m excited to see what these girls have in store for
the rest of the season after getting a preview tonight!

0-3 record

Day 1 KY Pre-season Spike Out

Michigan School for the Deaf’s Lady Tartars are in Kentucky for the
Pre-Season Spike out Tournament this weekend! We drove all day to
get here, and our first match was against Kentucky. We started
out unsure & not confident being it was our first game of our
season. The girls were receiving serves well with our team
percentage at  90%. Our senior setter & captain, Haley Cooper
had 1 kill, 2 aces, and was jump serving at 90%. Unfortunately
Haley was the only player not struggling to serve. Tartars
gave away too many points by missed serves and lost to KSD 0-2. 

Scores were: 19-25 & 16-25.  Next up was Marie Philips School.
As we gained more confidence, Tartars began to look like a
well functioning machine. MSD serves were a lot better this
match at 72%. Wendy Chicky was 100% serving & receiving!
She also had 3 kills & 1 ace. The Tartars struggled to
set the ball up for an attack & we continued to give MPS
free balls, and they fought back. MSD lost to MPS 1-2.
Scores were: 16-25, 25-20, & 7-15. 

There was still no break in sight, and we had to face
Georgia School for the Deaf. The girls were exhausted,
but never gave up. We set the ball up more frequently
and worked as a team to defend our court. Addison
Blair has been becoming a key player and her level
of play is increasing. She closed out the day with
6 kills, 15 aces, and 22 service receives. Tartars
fought till the end and beat GSD 2-1. Scores were
10-25, 26-24, and 15-11. Great job Lady Tartars!

Our record is now 1-2.  On Saturday we will play 4
more teams to determine our standings. 9am against
Tennessee School for the Deaf, 11am vs Virginia School
for the Deaf, 12pm against Atlanta Area Deaf School,
and at 2pm vs Kansas School for the Deaf.

The skinny: Waterloo has shown gradual improvement under fourth-year head

season since 2008 a year ago. The Cougars missed out on the playoffs by a
single region win, but there’s room for optimism in 2017. …
Quarterback Bryce Palmer and running back Trevor Darby return to an
offense which averaged 28 points per game in 2016. … Alabama School for
the Deaf has posted three wins in each of the last two seasons….
Waterloo holds a 2-1 record in the all-time series, including a 40-0 win
in 2016.

An integral part of small town culture in the South, a high school
team’s exploits on the field become part of a community’s history. The

the primary coverage area of The Daily Home and the St. Clair Times to
have a football team, first taking the field in 1892.

Wales won the last 15-a-side world deaf championship, they have
a dream – a double championship, meaning Sevens Deaf World Cup
in Australia in April 2018.

hard of hearing baseball manager

part of a story

One of Peanut (Lowrey’s) great skills as a coach was his supposed
ability to steal opponents’ signs. … (he) was managing a Cubs game in
Herman Franks’ absence while Franks watched the game from a broadcast
truck. There, Franks noticed how the center-field camera enabled him to
pick up the catcher’s signs and thought that this would be a great
opportunity to steal some signs. So he called Lowrey and told him he would
call one for a fastball, two for a curve, three for a changeup. While
Franks was calling numbers for the pitch, Arne Harris, the WGN producer,
was calling numbers for the camera, and the poor guy switching the game
was going crazy. The only thing wrong with the plan was that Lowrey was
somewhat hard of hearing, and by the time Franks got through to him, the
pitch had gone by. “They finally had to call it off,” Harris said,
“because they were afraid someone was going to get killed.

note:
if this story is true, it might have happened in the 1950′s or 1960′s

Georgia volleyball

GSD’s first match of the season vs Atlanta Area School for the Deaf
(AASD)

GSD won 3-0 (25-11,25-12,25-19)

GSD won all three games but the games were closer than the score
shows.

Would like to commend the AASD coaching staff and their team for
giving 110% on the floor. These young ladies were giving up their
bodies to go after any ball that was close enough to hit.

Hats off to the GSD staff and team for their good team work and
hustle. All three games had several great volleys between team where
their players gave it everything they had, you almost wished both
teams could get a point when it is that exciting.

GSD next matches will be at the 1st Annual Pre-Season Volleyball
Spike-Out Classic at the Kentucky School for the Deaf on August
25-26.

Record… 1-0-0

note:
DeafDigest Sports hopes that the
Pre-Season Volleyball Spike-Out Classic
will become permanent. This is a
great opportunity for small schools
that do not play in the National
Spike-Out Classic (these Big 6
schools – Fremont, Riverside,
Texas, Indiana, Model and Maryland,
plus invited non Big-6 schools).

……………………………………………….

won/lost records

collegiate freshman tennis player

Mary Kate Buchheit was announced as a new freshman
with the women’s tennis team at Illinois, Champaign-Urbana

need to take a look at the 2017 fall season tennis roster
to see if she, indeed, is on the team. The 2017 roster hasn’t
yet been posted on the university web site.

deaf pro cyclist

Tom Smith, Great Britain, has been cycling professionally
for several years, but not in recent seasons.

He is being taken off the elite list for reasons of
inactivity

…………………………………………………..

deaf golfer honored with a hall of fame induction

Members of this year’s Racine County Sports Hall of Fame class certainly
did that.

Don Dalton, George Gillett Jr., Howie Ruetz, Heather Suhr and Marcus West
each excelled at the highest level in their sports endeavors, each carving
out their own special niche.
