Gallaudet baseball

GU sweeps Cazenovia to earn two crucial NEAC victories

WASHINGTON – Two much-needed North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
victories was exactly what Gallaudet University baseball needed. The Bison
swept a conference series with Cazenovia College here on an unseasonably
cold afternoon at Hoy Field.

GU won its first game at home in over two months with a 6-1 victory in the
first game as the Bison batted first and served as the away team. This
doubleheader was originally scheduled to be played at Cazenovia but was
moved to the nation’s capital after rain/snow showers deemed the Wildcats’
field unplayable. In the second game, Gallaudet trailed 6-2 going into the
eighth inning but rallied to scored the next five runs to win 7-6 in 10
innings.

Gallaudet (6-28-1, 3-11 NEAC) catapulted up in the NEAC standings to
seventh place after today’s wins moved them in front of Cazenovia (8-19,
2-12 NEAC) and Wells College (12-18, 2-12 NEAC) with a week left in the
regular season. GU is still fighting for a NEAC playoff berth and will
play four conference games next weekend. If GU was able to pick up four
additional NEAC wins it would place the buff and blue in the mix.

GU will have to go up against SUNY Poly (10-15, 4-5 NEAC) and SUNY
Cobleskill (2-23, 1-9 NEAC), a first-year program, on the road in New York
next weekend.

Game 1: Gallaudet 6, Cazenovia 1
Freshman pitcher Ethan Denson (Huffman, Texas) threw his best game of the
season in the first game. Denson (2-7) went the distance and allowed one
unearned run on four hits, three walks and struck out four. Denson earned
his second win of the year, he last won on Opening Day where he threw four
scoreless innings to begin the season.

Game 2: Gallaudet 7, Cazenovia 6 (F/10)
Gallaudet trailed by four runs late into Sunday’s second game of the NEAC
doubleheader against Cazenovia but rallied to score the game’s final five
runs to win 7-6 in 10 innings.

UP NEXT
The Gallaudet baseball team is slated to travel back to New York next
weekend for two conference doubleheaders. GU begins the trip on Saturday,
May 5, against SUNY Poly.

 Iowa Track Update

Very busy week with three meets.  We started the week on Monday at Essex
in
a coed meet with schools our size, smaller schools in Class 1A, including
one school from Missouri.  We only took one girl to this meet, yet we had
a
full squad for the boys.  The standings provided by Essex only recognized
the top 6 in each event, as they were scoring 6 places.  Our medalists and
scoring results:

The boys scored 40 points total, ending up in 5th place.

The varsity season is concluded, however we are going to decide in the
next day or two whether to take Henry Zlando to the district meet on May 10th
in the 100 and 400 meter dashes.  His times have been rating him right around
the top 10-15.  We will announce in the next couple of days if he will go
or not.

more on Teanna Sieben, deaf goalie in lacrosse

part of newspaper story

Local lacrosse star Teanna Sieben joins Rush for regular season finale

A local lacrosse star was part of the Saskatchewan Rush for their regular
season finale last night.

Goaltender Teanna Sieben was signed by the Rush for the team’s regular
season finale last night against the Calgary Roughnecks. Sieben
participated in the morning shoot-around and warm-ups prior to ball drop.
She will also be introduced in the Rush starting lineup.

Sieben said she was excited to be joining the Rush.

Rush players and coaches were thrilled to have Sieben in the crease and
expected her to provide an extra spark heading into the game.

The Rush went on to win the game 11-10, and finish the regular season with
a 14-4 record, the best in the league.

note:
the story did not say if she actually played in the game and only
participated in pre-game warm up sessions. The assumption is that
she was a back up goalie and was not used during the game

DeafDigest Sports, few days ago, ran another story on her.

FA Cup soccer (Great Britain)

A tradition in Great Britain is the FA Cup soccer tournament.

All soccer teams – pros, amateurs, semi pros are invited to take
part in the open tournament.

Nearly 800 teams take part.

One of the teams is Reading FC Deaf. They lost 2-1 to
Westcliff United (hearing) team and is eliminated.
     
It is not known, however, if a deaf team ever won one of these
earlier round FA Cup games in the past. Most deaf teams
do not take part in the open tournament, knowing they could
be blown out and be humiliated. They stay within their
own deaf leagues.

Gallaudet softball

Bison end season with close losses to Penn St.-Berks

READING, Pa. – The Gallaudet University softball team played two of the
closes games in the recent history between Penn St.-Berks today since the
Bison joined the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) in 2011. The
Bison were shut out in both games, 2-0 and 3-0, here Saturday at Hintz
Athletic Field.

Gallaudet (13-22, 5-13 NEAC) concludes the 2018 season without making the
conference postseason tournament. Penn St.-Berks (19-7-1, 14-0) is the
only undefeated team in either the North or South Division of the NEAC
standings. The Nittany Lions have the inside track on hosting the
conference tournament once more.

GU has lost 26 straight games to Penn St.-Berks dating back to the 2011
season. Gallaudet is 1-29 against Penn St.-Berks when it joined the NEAC.
The Bison lone victory came on April 9, 2011, with an 8-3 win on the road.
GU has been shut out 10 times and lost 14 times by the eight-run mercy
rule after five innings. Before today’s games the closes GU got to Penn
St.-Berks was a 7-6 loss in 2015 and a 9-6 extra-inning loss in 2016.

Neild finished her rookie season with an impressive .455 batting average
(45-for-99)

Five Bison finished the season with a .300 or higher batting average

The Bison finished with a .290 team batting average

Gallaudet is 2-10 this season in away games and 3-15 overall in away or
neutral site games

Bison baseball picks up first NEAC win of the season

AURORA, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University baseball team celebrated its first
North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) win of the season here Saturday
as the Bison defeated the Wells Express, 3-2, in the first game of the
twin bill.

Gallaudet (4-28-1, 1-11 NEAC) snapped a 16-game winless streak as it
picked up its first road win of the season.

In the second game, Gallaudet got doubled up by Wells (12-16, 2-10 NEAC)
as the Express scored 15 runs in the seventh inning en route to a 22-11
win.

Gallaudet had five extra-base hits in the second game

Both teams issued 16 walks each and left 13 runners on base in the second
game

A combined 11 pitchers were used in the nine-inning game
The two teams combined to throw 413 pitches (Gallaudet – 223, Wells – 190)
in the 22-11 game

Hayes (0-5) threw 144 pitches alone

Today marked GU’s first win in 44 days

GU is now 1-3 in away games this year

note:
no rest for the weary!

Gallaudet is playing a doubleheader today at Hoy Field; Cazenova home
field was unplayable, thanks to the weather, and so, the scheduling
switch has been made

the NFL draft

How difficult is it for NCAA-III players to get drafted?

Since 2007, just seven NCAA-III players were drafted.

The most recent draftee was Hobert’s Ali Marpet, now
with Tampa Bay Bucs. Hobert faced Gallaudet in the
NCAA-III playoffs in 2014, meaning Marpet clashed
with the Gallaudet defensive line.

Each season there are always a few NCAA-III players
signed as free agents. It is not known yet, if any
of these free agents played against Gallaudet in
recent seasons.

Gallaudet baseball

Gallaudet baseball now set to host Cazenovia this Sunday

WASHINGTON – For the sixth time this season the Gallaudet University
baseball schedule has been impacted by the spring weather. The Bison were
originally scheduled to travel to Cazenovia, N.Y., on Sunday, April 29, to
face Cazenovia College in a North Eastern Athletic Conference
doubleheader. Cazenovia, which has grass and dirt fields, has been
impacted by rain/snow showers and has ruled their surface unplayable this
weekend.

Now, the Wildcats (8-17, 2-10 NEAC) will travel to the nation’s capital on
Sunday to face the Bison (3-27-1, 0-10 NEAC) at Hoy Field, a turf surface.
The first game is slated to begin at 2 p.m. with a second to follow 30
minutes after the conclusion of the first game.

Gallaudet left D.C. today to travel to Aurora, N.Y., and will play two
conference games at Wells College (11-15, 1-9 NEAC) tomorrow (Saturday,
April 28) at 1 p.m.

Riverside basketball

Yesterday’s DeafDigest Sports ran a story on a 6’11 basketball
player from Missouri School for the Deaf who played in the
mid-fifties.

It was learned that Riverside had a 7’0 basketball player
during the early seventies.

It was Edward Dudley, member of class of 1971.

The Deaf American magazine said that while he was tall,
he was slow and missed some games due to injuries.

He was a marked man by the opponents, because of his
high shooting percentage. His team, however, had a
losing record (7-13) in that 1970-71 season.

He did not play in the AAAD, according to a source.

playing in torrential rain in 2016…    we have no choice but to play on    
We do not want to cancel the ESDAA Tourney…   even the officials felt that
we should cancel but we want to play on…   as a result, we won the title
(and the National Champions)…   This past year, playing in a nice
sunshiney weather, we successfully defended our title so we can “boast”
that no matter what the weather is, we’ll take it (and we went on to win
the first game of the the hearing invitational tournament in inclement
weather and then won in a shoot-out format the following day at Highmark
Stadium)   these memories are etched in my mind.

Gallaudet softball

WASHINGTON – It was a bittersweet day for the Gallaudet University
softball team here Wednesday as the Bison concluded their home schedule
with a clean sweep of Lancaster Bible College in a North Eastern Athletic
Conference (NEAC) doubleheader. Gallaudet walked off with a 7-6 win in the
bottom of the seventh inning in the first game and shut out the Chargers
(5-29, 2-14 NEAC) in the second game, 8-0, in five innings.

The game also marked the final home game in the careers of seniors Alyssa
Barlow (Chandler, Ariz.), Genesis Rodriguez (San Antonio, Texas) and
Kelsey Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.).

Game 1: Gallaudet 7, Lancaster Bible 6
Gallaudet shortstop Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) ended the first game
with one swing of her bat. Neild blasted a triple to left-center field,
her second of the day, to score the game-winning run in the bottom of the
seventh inning to end the game, 7-6, in favor of the Bison.

The outlook a few innings earlier was bleak for the Bison, who trailed 6-0
heading into the bottom of the fifth. Gallaudet’s offense came alive and
scored six times off Lancaster Bible pitcher Nicole Dekok (2-15) to knot
the game at six. Sophomore Jenny Mendis (Brook Park, Ohio) had a two-run
single before Barlow cleared the bases with a three-run double.

Junior first baseman Jacklyn Zacarias (Montebello, Calif.), Neild and
Barlow led the Bison with two hits each.

Barlow picked up her fifth win in the circle as she allowed six runs (four
earned) on 10 hits, walked two and struck out five.

Game 2: Gallaudet 8, Lancaster Bible (F/5)
Gallaudet made quick work of the Chargers in the second game as the Bison
scored runs in all four innings en route to the 8-0 shutout in five
innings. Freshman pitcher Hannah Carter (Dayton, Ohio) only allowed three
hits as she struckout three in her complete game victory. This is Carter’s
fifth win this season.

Neild went 3-for-3, two runs and one RBI to help GU to its fifth shutout
win of the season.

Barlow led the team with two doubles, one run and two RBI as she helped to
drive in the eighth run to end the game by the mercy rule. Hudson added a
triple and a run while Rodriguez had a hit, run and RBI in their final
games at the GU Softball Complex.

BISON TRACKS

— Gallaudet posted a 10-7 record at home this season
— Ten of GU’s 13 wins happened at the GU Softball Complex this year
— This was Gallaudet’s first win at home since April 8
— GU snapped an eight-game losing streak with today’s wins
— Gallaudet had lost the previous six games against LBC before today
— GU last defeated LBC on April 2, 2014

UP NEXT
Gallaudet will travel to Pennsylvania this Saturday, April 28, to conclude
its season against Penn St.-Berks (17-7-1, 12-0 NEAC) in a conference
doubleheader at 1 p.m

he Bisons hosted their first meet of the season yesterday.  The weather in
WNY has postponed our track season and it was great to finally be able to
compete.  The Bisons took on The Falk School and Maritime Charter School
in a three way meet.  Our meet against Falk last week was cancelled due to
snow and cold temperatures.  Our schedules allowed us to host a three way
meet.  It was a cold and rainy day which is not ideal but the Bisons
pushed through the elements  and managed to perform quite well given the
conditions and the fact that it was our first official meet as a team for
all.  Our next meet is May 2nd when we host Rochester School for the Deaf
and Falk in another three way meet.

Gallaudet is part of All-Star Game week citywide events

part of newspaper story, as edited

All-Star Week spreads out across the District

Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game last came to Washington 49 years ago.

The Midsummer Classic returns this season, with Nationals Park hosting the
game on Tuesday, July 17. But these days, the game itself is just one part
of a long, celebratory week of baseball.

Other venues in the city that will host All-Star events include Gallaudet
University.

Sam Atkinson, associate athletic director for communications at Gallaudet,
said the school in Northeast Washington will host youth games in July.
There will be 11 teams from the United States and Puerto Rico, with ages
14 to 16.

“The Commissioner’s Cup Tournament will be onsite from July 11-17.
Most games will take place at the Nationals Youth Academy. A few games
will take place on campus (at Gallaudet) from July 13-15,” according to
Atkinson. The athletes “will be staying on campus at the (Model
Secondary School for the Deaf) dorms.”

Gallaudet is about three miles north of Nationals Park and is the only
university for the deaf in the United States. The Division III school’s
baseball coach is Curtis Pride, 49, a Washington native who grew up in
Silver Spring and played in the big leagues from 1993 to 2006.

Pride made his major league debut in 1993 with the Montreal Expos, who
moved to Washington in time for the 2005 season at Nationals Park.

Temecula freshman commits to powerhouse PAC 12 school

TEMECULA – Holly Hunter, a freshman at Great Oak High School, has had an
exciting soccer year from being called into the U.S. Girls National Camp,
to playing for the U.S. Deaf Women’s National Team. Hunter, who is
completely deaf and uses cochlear implants to hear, waited until the
Easter holiday to share with her family and post on social media that she
has verbally committed to play soccer in the top powerhouse conference,
the PAC 12, for University of Colorado.

She said:
I am so excited and thankful to announce I have verbally committed to
play D1 soccer, and further my education at University of Colorado in the
PAC 12!

The University of California Los Angeles, Stanford University, Santa Clara
University and Oregon State University were also on her list, but after
going on an unofficial visit, the University of Colorado quickly moved
into the No. 1 spot.

She also said:
I decided to commit to University of Colorado in the PAC 12, because I
wanted to play in one of the top soccer conferences in the nation.
Colorado has an amazing soccer program that is looking to win the PAC 12
championships and NCAA National Championships,” Hunter said. “I hope that
I can help contribute to making that goal a reality.

comment:
Is it a good idea for a high school freshman to commit to a college
that she would attend four years later? Many things change in the life of
teenage athletes. All coaches know that.

GU wraps up New York road trip against NEAC’s top North Division team

KEUKA PARK, N.Y. – Gallaudet University softball concluded its New York
weekend trip here Sunday and lost both North Eastern Athletic Conference
(NEAC) games to Keuka College, the top team in the North Division. The
Bison (11-20, 3-11 NEAC) lost 10-2 in five innings in the first game and
11-3 in six innings to the Wolves (11-7, 8-2 NEAC) in the second game.

Gallaudet baseball

Seniors take center stage on Sunday against Penn College

WASHINGTON – It was a memorable day for Gallaudet University’s four
seniors on the baseball team here Sunday at Hoy Field. The Bison came up
short against Penn College in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
doubleheader as they lost 7-6 in extra innings in the first game and fell
12-2 in the second game.

Gallaudet (3-27-1, 0-10 NEAC) led 5-2 and 6-3 before Penn College (15-10,
9-1 NEAC) came back to score four unanswered runs to win the first game in
eight innings.

The day was dedicated to the senior class and their families. Prior to the
start of the game, the players played catch with their parents and family
members in the outfield under the warm sun. The four families and players
were recognized before the start of the game as well by coach Curtis Pride
and the rest of the Bison squad. In the games, all four players
contributed to the Bison, who almost knocked off one of the top teams in
the conference.

………………………………………….

Fremont sports

The Eagles just returned from Hoy Classic in Riverside.  The softball team
finished in 4th place and the baseball team finished in 5th.  At times,
both teams went on an offensive tear but also struggled with inexperience
and control on the mound.  However, their hustle and sportsmanship was
noted all weekend and the future is bright for both teams! 
Congratulations to our two athletes for being selected on the Hoy Classic
All-Tournament Team – Marcela Brentham and Donovan Holmes!

This week will be a lighter week which will be a good rest for our
athletes who has been busy with Culinary Bowl, Spring Break, International
Studies, Academic Bowl, Berg Seeger Classic, and Hoy Classic this month!

Athlete of the Week: ESTHER BISER – Our sophomore all-around player has
been noticed for her passion of the game and getting the team together. 
She also has an important role to produce for the team, batting third in
the order, and playing third base.  Esther had numerous timely RBI’s
during the Hoy Classic.  Additionally, she has had excellent attitude and
is one of the few players with 100% participation this season which is
always difficult during the spring season.

Athlete of the Week: JADEN READER – Our freshmen shortstop/pitcher has
been on an absolute tear this month.  Jaden almost produces every game
with his bat and he had 6 RBI’s during the tournament.  Although Jaden is
a converted pitcher, he’s quickly became our ace and he earned the Hoy win
against MSSD.  Additionally, the team loves his attitude on and off the
field!

pro basketball player couldn’t play at national deaf tournament

Michael Lizarraga, who plays professionally in Mexico,
signed up to play for one of the deaf teams at the
national deaf basketball tournament that took place
recently.

The old coach told him he can go and play.

The old coach was fired.

A new coach who replaced him told him he cannot
go and play.

As a result, a very diappointed Lizarraga had to stay
back in Mexico and be with his pro team!

Riversid team in the all-star game against
San Bernardino.

He may be the first coach in Riverside Deaf
history to coach a post-season all-star game.

The game takes place on April 29, Sunday @3:30 PM.

He siad it is quite a honor for him and for
the school.

He will have an interpreter with him on the
coaching sidelines.

…………………………………………….

Matt Hamill latest fight

UFC Veteran Matt Hamill defeated Chris Birchler.

The opponent came on strong but ran out of steam,
allowing the much experienced Hamill to come up with
the win. It was Hamill’s wrestling skills that helped
him with these takedowns.

Interestingly enough, it was Hamill’s age (41) that
made the Pennsylvania commission hesitant to certify
him as fit for the match. He had to go through a
series of medical tests to win commission’s approval.

international competition, and also played basketball in junior
college.

What is your experience in sports venues?

This is a survey that is going on

not too much information is available, though.

It wants to know deaf fans’s experience with accessibility issues.

Will be interesting to see what the responses are

………………………………………….

The only Deaf team is playing this weekend at the USA Men’s
Basketball 3 x 3 national tournament…

part of a press release

Savage Deaf Fellas, which qualified for the 2018 USA 3×3 National
Championships as Team Adroit at the Gallaudet University 3×3 Qualifier
last November, is comprised of four former Gallaudet basketball players.
All of whom are deaf. The team includes brothers Anton Jackson, a current
Bison men’s basketball assistant coach, Frank Jackson Jr. and teammates
Orion Palmer and Kristofer Saucedo.

……………………………………………

accidental basketball game

it was a big story when one high school team won a baseball
game by the score of 82-0. The coach of the winning team
wanted to play Notre Dame Rey High School but accidentally
scheduled it against a much weaker Notre Dame Cristo Rey
High School (two complely different schools).

It happened years ago during early days of Model Deaf
basketball team. The new coach, from out of town
and not familiar with the local competition,
accidentally scheduled a game against powerhouse
St Anthony’s High School. That team was coached
by John Thompson (before he moved on to Georgetown).

Model was lucky. Thompson, upon arriving at the
gym and seeing how weak Model was, refused to allow
his 1st and 2nd team players to play in the game.
He used his 3rd team, and while St Anthony won
easily, the score could have been worse if
1st and 2nd team players were used.

St Anthony has closed its doors.

Gallaudet Invitational (April 21) Information

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University men’s and women’s track and field
team will host its only home meet of the season on Saturday, April 21, at
the Thomas O. Berg Track. The Gallaudet Invitational will get underway at
9:30 a.m.

The Bison welcome The Catholic University of America, George Washington
University, Hope College, University of Mary Washington, Howard Community
College and Montgomery Community College to campus.

start of the afternoon running events.

Admission to the Gallaudet Invitational is free. There will be concessions
for sale during the event.

note:
Hope College? It is from Michigan. Apparently Michigan weather is too
cold, and so, they’re taking advantage of the “warmer” Washington, DC
weather. This meet shows an interesting range of colleges, ranging
from NCAA-I (George Washington University down to junior college
teams (two of them)

champion deaf gymnast

Delaware School for the Deaf student wins regional gymnastics championship

part of newspaper story

Seth Wayland is just like many kids; he turned an interest into an
athletic pursuit which has brought him regional recognition.

Seth is also unlike many kids; he is legally deaf.

The 12-year-old Newark resident took a step toward his dreams of being a
national team gymnast by winning the Level 6 Division 2 title for District
7, a region that includes Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York,
Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia, in Lincroft, New Jersey earlier
this month.

……………………………………………….

a mention of deaf pro basketball player

part of a web posting

Los Mochis’ top scorer on the night was Deandre Hall with 32 points and
another impressive performance came from Michael Lizarraga, who had a
double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Lizarraga was an intriguing
player to see in this series as he is deaf, but gives an immense effort on
the court and does not leave anything behind.

Los Mochis lost 96-77.

note:
Michael Lizarraga is deaf and played collegiate basketball at CSUN;
as a holder of dual USA-Mexican citizenship, he was able to play
pro basketball in Mexico without having to worry about these
“import” rules.
