Gallaudet basketball

Lakeland’s Daniels getting on to court at Division III Gallaudet

part of newspaper story

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Shawn Daniels stood near midcourt in the final
seconds of a recent college basketball game in the nation’s capital, and
the freshman guard clapped his hands excitedly as a referee’s call went
in favor of a teammate.

But most of the several hundred fans in attendance at the NCAA Division
III contest couldn’t hear those hands being clapped by the Lakeland High
graduate.

That is because Daniels plays for Gallaudet University, the only college
in the world specifically for the deaf and hard of hearing. While Division
III Gallaudet doesn’t attract the attention or attendance numbers of
nearby Division I Maryland and Georgetown, that doesn’t dismay the
energetic Daniels.

Dragons 62
FCC 47
Halftime score: FSDB 30-20 FCC

The Seniors managed to walk off the Settles Gym court winners for the 15th
time this season. Since 1970, this is the 3rd time the Varsity Boys team
at FSDB has posted 15 or more wins.

We jumped off to a great start tonight and never relinquished the lead.
FCC did come up within 5 midway in the 4th quarter before we pulled away
for a comfortable win.

We didn’t play with the flair or pizzazz as we did last week, but we took
advantage of opportunities to score enough times to post a winning total.
As is customary with our recent teams, the scoring was distributed nicely
among our players.

Leading scorers tonight: Quintin Galpine 14, Samy Vital 14, Wallace
Burrell 12, Yahir Rodriguez 11, Walter Douglas 8, Luis Merced 2, Cody
Newsome 1.

Season record: 15-8

This week, we will have NINE sports teams going on as we begin tryouts of
the spring teams while concluding some of the winter sports seasons. Good
luck to everyone!

On Thursday, our big event is the ORANGE and BLACK out night which is also
our senior night. There will be giveaways at the door and there will be
four teams performing all night, come and support us and remember don’t
wear RED! Open the attached flyer for more information.

Also, this weekend, four of our girls wrestlers will be participating in
the NCS girls-only tournament. Best of luck to them!

Athlete of the Week – MARK KOZYK. Our JV Boys Basketball has looked so
much better as of late showing a lot of teamwork and hustle so the coaches
felt that Mark is one big reason why. Last year he was hesitant on
joining the sport but has improved so much this year that he has
contributed in so many areas. Congratulations!

RISD Boys Basketball

On Saturday February 3rd, the Lexington School for the Deaf traveled from
New York City to Providence RI for a Div 1 vs Div 2 match up.
Unfortunately the Roosters only had 5 players and was still missing our
leading scorer plus a veteran starter. Lexington’s size and speed was too
much and won the game with the score of 49 to 10. Timothy Jallah scored 5
points with 8 rebounds and Juan Fernandez Espinal contributed with 5
points and 6 rebounds.

LSD – 24 25 – 49

Hard of Hearing (4:15 p.m.)

RISD Girls Basketball

Our girls’ basketball team played host to Lexington School for the Deaf.
They are one of the top-three girls’ team in ESDAA Div. 1 so this would be
a huge test for us. Lexington proved itself to be a very strong team and
executed their gameplan on both sides of the court. We struggled to
maintain ball possession and Lexington capitalized on our mistakes en
route to easy shots. Our girls did not give up as they continued to battle
throughout the whole game, losing by the final score of 42-10.

We have one more game left this week before the ESDAA Div. 2 girls’
tournament – we will definitely be hard at work in practice all week long!
