ESDAA Games for ASD

Friday – Boys seeded #1 had a bye.

Saturday:
 ASD Boys faced PA school for the Deaf in the semifinal. ASD raced out to
a quick lead in the first period. Led 19-10 but faced heavy foul trouble
early. The team relied on its young starter and young bench to keep the
pace the in the second quarter. Led 34-18 at halftime.
 PSD came out of halftime with a new game plan that was successful in
matching up the teams evenly. ASD continues to struggle to avoid foul
trouble and the bench stepped up with critical contributions.
 Boys won 60-41 to advance to the Championship game.
 Andrew Ray Taylor: 16 pts, 11 reb, 6 blocks
 Jarmal Puryear: 10 pts, 10 rebs
 Omar Shariff: 10 pts, 5 rebs, 9 steals

Sunday:
 ASD Boys faced Marie Philip School for the Deaf. MPS started the game
with dominating energy and took advantage of a poor shooting start by ASD.
MPS led 8-2 after the first quarter. In the second quarter, Robert Milone
put the team on his back scoring 8 points in the quarter to pace the
Tigers. Halftime MPS led by a score of 25-23.
 ASD changed up the game plan at halftime to take control in the third
quarter outscoring MPS 12-4 in the third. Andrew Ray Taylor dominated the
boards. The fourth period was a back and forth affair with both teams
going on 10-0 runs in the period. ASD was able to hold on in the end
winning 50-48 over MPS for their second straight championship (last time
won two straight was 1980).
Andrew Ray Taylor: 19 pts, 24 reb, 8 blocks
Robert Milone: 13 pts, 8 rebs, 4 assists
Dylan Mallach: 7 pts, 4 rebs, 1 assist.

Riverside boys’ basketball

CSDR IN for CIF playoffs!

We will play on Wednesday, Feb 14th vs. @ Cornerstone- 7:00 PM

Sherman- 65

We jump big led in first quarter 18-10. After that, we lost the led rest
of the game.

However, we made it to CIF- HOW? Many coaches (even Notre Dame’s head
coach- one of the top basketball programs in Riverside country, because we
had a scrimmage during winter break) recommended our team to CIF and we
are IN.

Rochester girls’ basketball

The Wildcats traveled to Delaware for the ESDAA tournament last weekend.
Our first game of ESDAA tournament was last Saturday. We won the first
game

McKenna Girod – 10 points and 9 rebounds

Reuslt – 30-8

We entered the championship game on Sunday against Delaware. We start off
lead by 21 to 16 in halftime. We were trying to keep leading the game.
However, Delaware finally took a lead after ending of 3rd quarter (30-34)
We never give up in the 4th quarter. We fought it hard for the whole game.
We were tie 47-47 in few seconds left. Carolyn Russell (Delaware) drives
and made a lay up and took a lead 49-47. We weren’t able to score in last
9
seconds left. Coach Palmer, I am proud of my team so much and I couldn’t
ask for more from them. They improved a lot from the beginning to the end
of season. I really am looking forward to having them back for next
season.

Courtney Gentzke – 23 points, 4 out of 8 for 3 pts, 7 rebounds, and 3
steals
Mariana Menzynski – 7 points and 5 assists
McKenna Girod – 6 points and 13 rebounds

St Mary’s girls basketball

The lady Bisons traveled to Delaware this weekend for the ESDAA girls
basketball tournament. They played in two games and came in fifth
overall.

In their first game Friday night they took on RISD in what turned out
to be one of the closest games of the weekend. The Bisons had a hard
time breaking through the RI defense and with starter Elise Watson
getting sick and missing the second half of the game, the girls had a
lot of floor to cover. Though they trailed most of the game by 2-3
points, they never gave up and eventually tied up the game late in
the 4th quarter. It all came down to the last minute of play when RI
put in two baskets quickly ending our chance of advancing. Kioney
Alvira-Jurado lead the team with 9 points while Cami Cole and Kearah
Kelly both helped out with 4 each.

After a day of competitions and watching others play on Saturday, we
had the first game of the day on Sunday. We took on New York State
school for the Deaf (Rome) for 5th place. Knowing how our last
meeting with Rome ended, we made the smart move to start Elise Watson
as point guard with Aleyshka Nieves-Rivera, Tatyana Bean, Julia
Bronneberg, and Kearah Kelly making up the rest of the roster. The
girls played strong against Rome and kept it close throughout the
first half of the game. Elise Watson ran into foul trouble early in
the game and had to be replaced by Kioney Alvira-Jurado and Cameron
Cole at point. The girls took turns this game running against Rome,
but coming into the second half our starters quickly took, and
maintained, the lead. Cameron Cole lead the team with 11 points this
game with Kioney adding 8 and Kearah adding 3 for the win in this
22-14 victory.

Though they only finished in 5th place the girls showed great
sportsmanship throughout the weekend.

Senior Tatyana Bean won the Ann Leo award for courage

Sophomore Cameron Cole was named to the tournament all-star team

The girls finished their season with a final record of 2 wins-5 loses

Game: SMSD vs Rhode Island 19:23

Texas girls’ basketball

Well, the girls battled hard last night and we just came up short.  We now
know we can hang with the #3 team in the state.  With the loss, we now
have to play a tie-breaker game with Brentwood to decide who will be the #2/#3
seed for our district heading into the state playoffs.

The tie-breaker game vs Brentwood will be on Tuesday night (7p) at San
Juan Diego’s new gym.

The first round of the playoff game (Area) will be Tuesday, Feb. 20th-
either vs Woodlands (at Woodlands, if we are #3 seed), or vs Bay Area
Christian (at TSD, if we are #2 seed)
