Gallaudet softball

Bison and Wolverines run out of daylight to complete doubleheader

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University’s marathon softball doubleheader here
Tuesday with Wesley College was cut short as the second game was called
for darkness after three innings played. The Bison dropped the first game,
8-4, to the visiting Wolverines and were down 8-0 in the second game
before the teams ran out of daylight. The second game’s statistics and
result will not count and it will not be made up.

The two teams were making up a doubleheader from this past Sunday when GU
traveled to Dover, Del., only to find the Wesley field unplayable and
postponing the games until today.

The doubleheader, which started at 2 p.m., featured the longest
seven-inning game for the Bison in three seasons as it lasted two hours
and 38 minutes. GU’s second game began at 5 p.m., only a hour before the
sun was to set in the nation’s capital.

Gallaudet (0-3) allowed four extra-base hits to Wesley (2-1) in the first
game including two two-run home runs that came in the third and sixth
innings. The second home run bounced off a Gallaudet outfielders’ glove
and over the wall for the unlucky break for the Bison.

The Bison got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fourth when junior
Jacklyn Zacarias (Montebello, Calif.) doubled home sophomore Briana Pogue
(Papillion, Neb.) as GU trailed 6-1.

GU scored three more times in the bottom of the fifth. Freshman Hailey
Henshaw (Newark, Del.) walked with the bases loaded, Pogue singled home
one run and Zacazrias grounded out to bring home the fourth Bison run as
they were only down two, 6-4

note:
two women – Hannah Neild and Kelsey Hudson joined the
softball team three days after their basketball season
ended on Saturday night.

V Girls
NMSD – 28
Walatowa – 46

The NMSD Roadrunners had only 5 players suited up for the game. We came
out roaring with aggressive play in the first half being tied at 18
apiece. The first half was one of our best performances, if not the best.
The players truly stepped up in every aspect and played with a positive
attitude. With the fact that we only had 5 players and Walatowa was able
to sub with a full bench, they took advantage of it while we ran out of
gas. Walatowa ended the game with a 28 point second half to our 10 points.
Senior Antonia Martinez finishes her basketball career leading the team
with 9 points, 7 steals, 2 rebounds, and an assist. Freshman Victoria Baca
contributed with 8 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 steals. Sophomore Lindsay
Hand grabbed 12 rebounds, 7 points, 2 assists, a steal and a block.
Sophomore Mya Malone dominated the glass once again with 16 rebounds, 2
points, a steal and a block. 8th grader Sophia Martinez had a remarkable
game as she continued to improve with 7 rebounds, 2 p
oints and a steal. The team would like to thank the fans for all of their
support this season and the success that we have enjoyed.

Overall record 5-13

GU falls to Marymount in Bison Classic

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University baseball team lost 24-2 to Marymount
(Va.) University in seven innings here Sunday on a cold, rainy, wet and
raw afternoon at Hoy Field. The scheduled nine-inning game was called in
the seventh due to darkness after three hours and 25 minutes of play.

Gallaudet freshman Darren Drolsbaugh (Lansdale, Pa.) hit a two-run single
up the middle in the bottom of the third inning to cut the Saints lead to
six, 8-2. Marymount added 16 unanswered runs the rest of the way.

Junior Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.) started on the mound and lasted
2.2 innings where he allowed eight runs (seven earned), seven hits, five
walks and one strikeout.

Gallaudet is back home on Wednesday, Feb. 28, when they host Hood College
at 2:30 p.m. for a nine-inning game.

Gallaudet softball

Gallaudet doubleheader with Wesley postponed, moved to D.C. on Tuesday

DOVER, Del. – The Gallaudet University softball doubleheader scheduled for
today (Sunday, Feb. 25) at Wesley College was postponed after the Bison
arrived to find the Wolverine field unplayable after rain this weekend.

The two teams will now play on Tuesday, Feb. 27, at the GU Softball
Complex at 2 p.m. Gallaudet (0-2) has a turf field and will host the
Wolverines (1-1) in their first road contest of the season.

note:
Rainouts and wasted trips were the reasons why the Gallaudet athletic
director, during the 1960′s, opposed establishment of a baseball club.
The students ignored the athletic director’s comments and went ahead with
the baseball club. The club became varsity. And softball has joined the
list of Gallaudet spring sports.

1978 Regular and tournament district champs.  Made it to the State
playoffs lost first round in an 8 team seeded playoff.

……………………………………………….

a basketball trap story

part of USA Today story

t’s a system created to lure the nation’s best basketball players, often
capturing them when they’re still in high school.

The trap is operated by sports agents, coaches and financial advisers who
lock promising young players into their networks, controlling their
careers through college and the NBA, all to maximize their value to
apparel companies intent on driving sales in the multibillion-dollar
sneaker market.

It can take different forms. Often a player has no idea he is being
played. Often his parents, coaches or friends — the people he most
trusts most — are active participants. And once a prospect or his family
takes the bait by accepting cash or plane tickets or hotel rooms or any
other benefit, the trap door snaps shut.

With his amateur eligibility damaged, his basketball career may no longer
be his own.

note:
can it happen to deaf schools basketball – especially the Clerc tournament?

Never say never.

We have had a few players, over the years, from deaf school ranks,
that have played NCAA-I basketball. And some deaf players have played
AAU ball in the summer months.

and back in control.  Sunita Schmidjorg and Janelle Coons had 8 points

11:00a.

Let the magical season roll on another week!

Gallaudet baseball

Bison doubled up by Southern Vermont

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University fell 12-6 here to Southern Vermont
College on an overcast, cold and damp Friday at Hoy Field. The Bison
played the Mountaineers to a close 5-4 game after the first inning.

The Bison (2-1) dug themselves an early hole as Southern Vermont (1-1)
scored seven runs on four hits as GU committed six errors in the top of
the first. Bison starting pitcher Frank Diaz (Far Rockaway, N.Y.) lasted
10 batters before he was lifted with one out.

Sophomore Robersy Delgado (Tampa, Fla.) came on and got GU out of the jam
and solidified things for the next five innings.

Gallaudet scored twice in the bottom of the first inning to end the
50-minute long opening frame. The Bison added a run in the second and
third innings as they trailed 11-4 after three innings.

Southern Vermont walked in a run and surrendered a RBI single to Ryan
Gilbert (Mount Dora, Fla.) in the bottom of the eighth inning.

BISON TRACKS

Senior Kenneth Gentzke III (Honeoye, N.Y.) and junior Cameron Upton
(Vicksburg, Miss.) combined for three innings of scoreless relief

Upton went 2-for-5 at the plate with one run

Senior outfielder Kyle Gumm (Dallas, Texas) finished with two hits and a
run

GU’s top five batters in its lineup scored a run

points, 5 steals, and 5 rebounds. Crystal Katcher, SO, 2 points and 1

Deaf rugby

England vs Wales today

Wales won the last seven matches; England is trying to
break this streak today

It is considered to be the #1 deaf rugby match in the world

“They’re the number one side in the world for a reason,” says
England Deaf head coach Sean Fletcher.

Last season’s score was Wales 23, England 12

note:
Deaf rugby is not part of the Deaflympics for one big reason – the
deaf rugby group would not honor the 55dB hearing loss in the better ear
rule. The deaf rugby rule is something around 25-30dB hearing loss.

Gallaudet swimming honors

Sealts sweeps NEAC Men’s Swimmer and Rookie of the Year, Curran named
Coach of the Year

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) released
its 2018 All-Conference Swimming and Diving teams and Gallaudet University
earned 10 spots, which included three relay events. Five different Bison
men’s swimmers earned all-conference honors including 2017-18 Men’s
Swimming and Diving Swimmer of the Year, Rookie of the Year and Coach of
the Year.

A swimmer or diver needs to place first, second, or third in an event at
the NEAC Championships to earn all-conference status. The 2018 swimming
and diving championships were held Feb. 16-18 and were hosted by SUNY
Cobleskill. Gallaudet finished in third place with 379 points.

Freshman Benjamin Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) became the first men’s swimmer in
NEAC history to earn NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year and NEAC Men’s Rookie
of the Year at the same championship. The feat was achieved one time on
the women’s side when Cedar Crest College’s Maggie Olock swept both awards
at the 2104 NEAC championships. Sealts won his three individual events he
was entered in and set NEAC and school records in the process. He was also
a member of Gallaudet’s first-place 400-yard medley relay team along with
the 200-yard medley relay (second place) and 400-yard freestyle (third
place).

This is the second straight year Gallaudet has swept the NEAC Men’s
Swimmer and Rookie of the Year. Sealts becomes the third Bison to earn
NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year as he joins fellow teammate Jonathan
Tikhonoff (Folsom, Calif.), last year’s winner, along with accomplished
Bison swimmer Brian Bennett, who won back-to-back honors in 2011, ’12.
GU’s Chris Martinez was last year’s NEAC Men’s Rookie of the Year, this is
the second time in program history the Bison have earned this award.

Sealts shares the 2018 NEAC Men’s Swimming Rookie of the Year with SUNY
Cobleskill’s Daniel Mullen.

This is Gallaudet head coach Larry Curran’s first NEAC Men’s Swimming &
Diving Coach of the Year award. He earned the 2013-14 NEAC Women’s
Swimming & Diving Coach of the Year award four years ago.

Tikhonoff had an impressive meet as the senior won three individual events
and set a NEAC and school record in the 200-yard butterfly. He also joined
Sealts and senior David Bruno (Patchogue, N.Y.) and junior Mackenzie
Shannon (Winnetka, ill.) on the three relay teams that earned
all-conference honors. Freshman Rett Jala (McAllen, Texas) earned
all-conference third team honors in the 100-yard backstroke.

women’s swimming honors

Five Bison earn All-NEAC women’s swimming honors

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) released
its 2018 All-Conference Swimming and Diving teams and Gallaudet University
grabbed six spots on three different teams. GU had five women’s swimmers
earn all-conference honors.

A swimmer or diver needs to place first, second, or third in an event at
the NEAC Championships to earn all-conference status. The 2018 swimming
and diving championships were held Feb. 16-18 and were hosted by SUNY
Cobleskill. Gallaudet finished in fourth place with 310 points.

Sophomore Julia Miller-Notestone (Medford, Ore.) made a splash in her
return at the conference championships where she won the 100-yard
backstroke, finished second in the 100-yard freestyle and was third in the
200-yard freestyle.

Miller-Notestone was also a member of three Bison relays that earned
All-NEAC third team honors. GU’s 200- and 400-yard medley relay teams
consisted of Miller-Notestone, junior Alisia Metante (Pleasanton, Calif.)
and sophomores Jackie Perkins (Hampton, Va.) and Jessica Monroe (Senoia,
Ga.). Gallaudet’s 800-yard freestyle relay team was made up by
Miller-Notestone, Metante, Monroe and junior Jana Kiefer (Leander, Texas).

Girls Track: Panther Invitational Recap

2/15

The Girls Track and Field team traveled to Ridgeview HS last week Thursday
to compete against 8 other schools in the Panther Invitational. It was the
first meet of the year. With just three practices under their belts, the
girls did not disappoint.

Oceana Brown and Zoe Wilson stole the show with their performances in the
100 meter sprint and 1600 meter run, respectively.

Oceana captured first place in the 100 meter sprint clocking in at 13.11
seconds. Not only she was the fastest in the field of 30, but also the
youngest. Oceana is already making a name for herself and is on track for
a bright future!

Zoe, a first-year member of the team and a multi-sport athlete, who is
completely blind, used a cane to run the mile in 7 minutes and 33 seconds.
This is nothing short of miraculous as she ran 3/4 of a lap without her
cane after dropping it near the
halfway point of the race. Poor track conditions played a factor but
luckily, the cane was returned to her by a spectator and she was able to
finish the race with flying colors. She may have placed 11th out of 17 but
she captured 1st place in the hearts
of the many athletes and fans who were cheering her on. Definitely a
goosebump moment and one I’ll never forget! Zoe is the epitome of Courage
and Never Quit!!

Assistant coach Von Bursdall and I liked what we saw from our speedsters
in the sprinting relay events as we placed 3rd and 5th in the 4x100m and
4x400m, respectively. With practice and hard work, and Olivia Brown back
in the mix, it will only get better
from here on out.

Rookies Pinen Deshi (100, 4×100, 4×400), Katrina Kalis (1600), Nikayla
Merced (400), and Samantha Suarez (Shot Put, Discus) had the opportunity
to get their feet wet. The sky’s the limit for these girls!

Click the links below for meet results.

Our next two meets are at home, and the dates and times are as follows:
March 5 and 8 @ 3pm. Come one, come all!

another exciting postseason run!

Athlete of the Week – JARON LEMASTER.  Our sophomore rising guard on the
JV Basketball team has willingly filled in for Varsity on a few occasions
this year.  When the team became shorthanded in the league playoffs, Jaron
not only stepped in to learn some new plays and fit in his role in but he
actually played the entire game last Saturday.  Congratulations!

Idaho girls’ basketball

part of newspaper story

a girls basketball team that won its first basketball game (and its
second) in a decade.

note:
way back in the late eighties, the basketball team only had five girls.
The 5th girl badly hurt her knee in the game just before the Holiday
Season. If she couldn’t play after the Holidays, the season would have
been cancelled. The injured girl came back with a brace on her knee,
and practically limped her way for the remainder of the season. The
team won several games, making the season a success. The team’s
best player eventually played at Gallaudet.

inducted into county hall of fame

Johnny Olinger, who quarterbacked the Virginia School for the
Deaf and Blind football team to an unbeaten 10-0-0 record
in the 1969 season, has been inducted into the Smyth County
Hall of Fame.

Art Kruger, the Deaf American magazine sports editor was
faced with a difficult choice – which team was better as
the Team of the Year, 10-0-0 Virginia or 9-0-0 Illinois
School for the Deaf. He simply chose both schools to share
the Team of the Year honor.

Both schools did not face each other that season. Illinois
did defeat Virginia 73-0 in that season, but it was
Virginia High School (hearing) and not Virginia School
for the Deaf and Blind!

………………………………………………..

USADB hall of fame inductee little-known facts

They are the newest inductees

Darnell Woods – never played basketball in high school;
was a football star; after the Gallaudet football season,
he walked on the basketball team and made a big impact

Ron Emerson – played one season of college basketball
at Prairie View A&M and was immediately a fan favorite
despite playing very little. When games were nearly over,
fans screamed and clamored for the coach to play Ron.
The coach wouldn’t, but the fans screamed louder,
forcing the coach to give up and play Ron. He assisted
with the Gallaudet basketball team one season

Hubert Anderson – pulled off a feat that is impossible
for today’s coaches to duplicate – coaching the
Gallaudet team and the Washington Diplomats deaf club
team at the same time. Needless to say, the Diplomats
was considered Gallaudet’s unofficial farm team!
As a Gallaudet prep, he averaged 29 points a game with the
prep basketball team.

Michael Stultz – it it was impossible to separate him
from David Hamilton; they played together for years;
it was Stultz that made Hamilton look great – and
also it was Hamilton that made Stultz look great.
On these fast breaks, it was always either Hamilton
with the ball and Stultz at the wings – or -
Stultz with the ball and Hamilton at the wings -
very interchangeable and it led to many uncontested
layups.

Our final regular season game ended up in a disappointing loss with
Walatowa cruising to a win. Walatowa led at the half 30 – 9. We played

Coaches Roderick and Katie

V Boys (2/16)
NMSD 59
Walatowa 58

What an incredible game! In the 4th quarter, with 5 seconds left, 
Walatowa made a free throw which took them up by one point.  Without any
time outs left, Bruce Brewer Jr dribbled down the court and passed the
ball to Jonathan Garcia who then decided to drive to the basket. Sure
enough, Walatowa fouled on Jonathan RIGHT before the buzzer to end the
game went off. Jonathan went to the free throw line and he looked so
confident. He made both free throws, both hitting nothing but net.  Our
boys ran to Jonathan and celebrated the fact that we broke the school
record with 19 wins!  Leo and I want to say hats off to our boys for
believing that the game is not over until the clock runs out.   Senior
Jonathan got 23 points and Junior Deven Thompson made 17 points.

See you this coming Saturday for the District Championship game, please
share this with other NMSD alumni, family, and friends!

Clarification regarding district title and district championship…  we
have the district title which means we have an automatic bid in the state
tournament because of our first place rank in District 1A standings.  We
do not have the District championship yet, but we are the number 1 seed 
for the district basketball playoffs, We will need to win the district
championship game to be considered district champions and bring the
DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY home!  So please come this Saturday and cheer
our team on.

Gallaudet baseball

Bison sweep series with Valley Forge on Opening Day

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University baseball team flourished in its
season-opener with a doubleheader sweep of University of Valley Forge on a
cool and sun-filled Sunday afternoon at Hoy Field. Gallaudet (2-0) shut
out the Patriots (0-2) in the first game 6-0 and won 5-1 in the second
game in the non-conference twin bill to begin the 2018 season.

Game 1: Gallaudet 6, Valley Forge 0
Senior outfielder Kyle Gumm (Dallas, Texas) led the offense with a 2-for-3
performance at the plate as he drove in one run and scored three times.

Gallaudet received great production from the top of its order as the top
five batters recorded a RBI and combined for five of the team’s six hits.
GU scored first with two runs in the bottom of the first and added two
runs in the fifth and six innings to capture its first win of the season.

Freshman pitcher Ethan Denson (Huffman, Texas) picked up his first
collegiate win as he pitched four innings of shutout ball. Denson (1-0)
allowed two hits, walked two batters and struck out four in the win. A
trio of Bison pitchers came on in relief to closeout the game. Valley
Forge’s pitcher Shashwat Chitnis (0-1) allowed four runs on four hits,
walked three, and struck out two in over four innings of work.

Game 2: Gallaudet 5, Valley Forge 1
The Bison led 1-0 early in the second game and added more runs in the
fourth and fifth innings. Junior outfielder Yebi Areola (Nashville, Tenn.)
tripled to right field to score sophomore Winston Lane (Brooklyn Center,
Minn.) in the bottom of the fourth. On the next play, Areola scored thanks
to freshman Darren Drolsbaugh’s (Landsdale, Pa.) sacrifice bunt to the
pitcher.

Valley Forge got on the board in the fifth as Bryan Reyes hit a sacrifice
fly to center field to score Jonas Marte as the Patriots cut the Bison
lead to two, 3-1.

Gallaudet struck, again, in the bottom of the fifth with two additional
runs. Gumm, who led off the inning with a walk, stole a base and moved up
on a ground out before he scored on a wild pitch. Lane followed that up
with a double to right-center field to plate senior Justin Strong
(Charlotte, N.C.), who got on base after being hit by the pitch, to give
GU the four-run lead, 5-1.

Junior Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.) recorded his first win of the year
as he allowed one run on four hits and struck out two in five innings of
work. Valley Forge pitcher Bryce Wheary took the loss as he allowed four
runs on three hits, walked three, and struck out four in four innings.

note:
Gallaudet easily swept Valley Forge in a double header last season,
by run away scores. Valley Forge has gotten stronger this season
with many freshmen recruits.

Gallaudet sweeps NEAC men’s swimming awards as Bison finish third at
conference championships

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University men’s swimming and diving
program cleaned up at the 2018 North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
championships hosted by SUNY Cobleskill as the Bison took every individual
award on Sunday night. GU finished third overall as Wells College snuck by
the Bison down the stretch to take second place away from the buff and
blue.

Freshman Benjamin Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) was the star of the weekend as he
won four events (including one relay) and set three NEAC records en route
to be named the 2018 NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year and 2018 NEAC Men’s
Rookie of the Year. Sealts shares the rookie of the year honor with SUNY
Cobleskill’s Daniel Mullen. Gallaudet head coach Larry Curran was named
the 2018 NEAC Men’s Swimming & Diving Coach of the Year.

The host Fighting Tigers from SUNY Cobleskill successfully defended its
championship as they finished with 498 team points followed by Wells
(394), Gallaudet (379) and Cazenovia College (196).

Sealts won the 200-yard backstroke with a NEAC record time of 1:55.86 to
improve on his own school record time of 1:58.11 set on Jan. 13, 2018. He
was over 34 seconds ahead of the second-place swimmer.

Senior Jonathan Tikhonoff (Folsom, Calif.), last year’s NEAC Men’s Swimmer
of the Year, won the 200-yard butterfly with a NEAC record time of
2:06.79. Tikhonoff’s time erases Raymond Clark’s school record time of
2:09.83 set in 2005. The previous NEAC mark was 2:11.02 set by a Cazenovia
swimmer in 2013.

Gallaudet finished third in the 400-yard freestyle relay as Sealts and
Tikhonoff teamed up with junior Mackenzie Shannon (Winnetka, Ill.) and
senior David Bruno (Patchogue, N.Y.) to post a time of 4:02.46.

St Mary’s boys basketball

The Bisons played The Marie Katzenbach School for the Deaf from New Jersey
this afternoon in the Division II ESDAA Championships.  It has been over
10 years since The Herd was in the championship game so the Bisons were
anxious and jittery to start.  The first 8 minutes were close and low
scoring for both teams.  The Bisons then  took off on a run and outscored
New Jersey 17-8 in the final 8 minutes of the first half(Rhode Island
state rules play halves and not quarters).  Nick Barrus and Kassim Kassim
created some key turnovers that led to points.  Isa Habeeb(10) and Dalton
Planty(11) combined for 21 rebounds and helped control the boards. Ryan
Brzezinski came in off the bench and provided a change in the game which
led to points for the Bisons.  New Jersey got into foul trouble to start
the second half and the Bisons continued their run and outscored New
Jersey 17-5 for 8 minutes of play. The Bisons went on to win and become
Division II Champions….43-27.

The Bisons also won the Team Free Throw Competition, Team 21 Competition
and the Team Half Court Layup Competition.

1st team All-Stars were Nick Barrus, Isa Habeeb and Christian Lawrence.

Tournament Most Valuable Player was Nick Barrus.

Our record is 11 wins and 3 losses.

NCAA-I pitcher with a hearing loss

Robby Medel shows confidence in expanding role

part of web posting

“Going into my first year here [Arizona], that summer my mom was
thinking I was always ignoring her and I was like ‘no I’m not ignoring
you,’” Medel said. “So I did some hearing tests … figur[ed] out
that I am hard of hearing and [that] it’s really bad.”

Medel eventually had to get hearing aids, but initially wasn’t a big
fan. During his first year as a Wildcat, Medel struggled while on the
mound and eventually realized that wearing the hearing aids would benefit
him.

note:
he is late-deafened; he is a senior, too
