Gallaudet Athletic Director Michael Weinstock to retire in August

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University Athletic Director Michael Weinstock,
’81 & G-’94, has announced he will retire from his post on August 3,
2018.

Weinstock guided the Gallaudet athletics department through an era of
transformation during his 11-year tenure.

“I want to personally thank Michael for his dedicated service to the
Gallaudet community for the past three decades. His loyalty and work to
transform Gallaudet athletics, over the past 11 years, is evident and we
all should be proud of where the Bison program currently stands,” said
Gallaudet University President Roberta J. Cordano. “We wish Michael a
happy and restful retirement with his wife, Janet, and hope to see them in
the stands rooting on the Bison student-athletes for the years to come.”

Gallaudet’s athletic department went from five full-time staff members
when Weinstock started as AD to 19, which has been instrumental with
recruitment, retention, safety and promotion of Gallaudet athletics.
Weinstock introduced the use of graduate assistants to help bolster
team-coaching staffs and give experience to many deaf and hard of hearing
students.

“This has been a tremendous ride for me over the years working at
Gallaudet,” said Weinstock. “The time has come for me to pass along the
torch to the next Athletic Director to guide Bison athletics. I am very
proud of everything we have been able to accomplish as an athletics
department. We started from the bottom and built things up towards the top
and have made a name for ourselves.”

A national search will begin for Weinstock’s replacement this February
with the goal of having the new athletic director in place by the summer.

Florida boys’ basketball

1/30 at St. Johns Country Day School (Orange Park):
Dragons 61
SJCD 54
Halftime score: FSDB 28-20 SJCD

It was nice to get a tally in the W column again after our struggles last
week.  We got off to a good start, but couldn’t put them away until mid
4th quarter when we found oursevles with a 21 point lead.  At that point
we slowly subbed in our players.
But then SJCD caught fire and pulled within 8 forcing us to send back our
regulars in to finish the last 45 seconds of the game.  The highlight of
the game was that all 12 of our players scored!  That’s what coaches dream
of :) .

Season record: 12-8

Next games:
1/31 HOME vs Duval Charter. Tipoff at 7:30. MS boys play at 6.
2/1 HOME SENIOR NIGHT vs Calvary Christian. Tipoff at 6. Seniors
presentation at halftime.

1/31 vs Duval Charter (Jax):
Dragons 59
DC 32
Halftime score: FSDB 36-25 DC

This must have been how Michelangelo felt when he stepped back and took a
look at his finished Sistine Chapel ceiling.  Our boys played a perfect
game!  The way we broke their press and exectued in transition was a sight
to behold!  I’m really proud of
the way they played tonight.

Duval Charter beat us earlier this year by 14 points on the strength of
their tenacious press.  Tonight, we forced them to abandon their press in
the 2nd half when we were like a hot knife cutting through butter.

And to top it all off, it was our first game in our own Settles Gym since
12/11 (51 days).  The crowd came to check out the Mason Dixon champions,
and we most certainly gave them what they were hoping to see.

Yahir Rodriquez was unbelievable in the 1st half with 22 points, 16 of
them coming in the 1st quarter.  He finished with 31 points. His teammates
knew he was hot and had no qualms feedling him the ball.  That was such
unselfish play and I told Yahir that
he owes ‘em all dinner!

Quintin Galpine scored 13 and Wallace Burrell 9 along with a trio of
scorers who tallied a deuce- Samy Vital, Walter Douglas, and Cody Newsome.

Season record: 13-8

Next game:
2/1 HOME SENIOR NIGHT vs Calvary Christian. Tipoff at 6. Seniors
presentation at halftime.

Florida girls’ basketball

Monday’s game against FCC, since 2011 we have not beaten them. But this
game, we did with the score of 37 to 33. It was a bittersweet because the
game was our last home game. Lady Dragons controlled the ball in all 4
quarters, giving FCCS no chance of
catching up. Olivia Brown and Lourdine Jordonne made up most points, 14
and 17. Ja’Myra added 4 and Oceana for 2 points. Last December, we played
against FCC and lost the game, they had 43 points. As you can see, our
defense improved lately. Hats off to
Lady Dragons!

Tuesday’s game was a heart-winching game, we fell behind in first quarter
6 to 12, and managed to creep up to 13-16. We were tied in end of third
quarter, 20 apiece. Our fourth quarter shooting gone haywire, stone cold,
even going on layups the
basketball seems not interested in getting in the rim! We lost the game 27
to 36. Lourdine had 9 points, Olivia for 7, Ja’Myra got 6, Oceana for 3,
and Emma with 2 points.

Our next game will be tomorrow night at Interchalen.

Record 9-16
