Gallaudet softball

GU swept in NEAC opener at Wilson

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – The Gallaudet University’s softball team began its
North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) schedule on the road here
Thursday and dropped two games to Wilson College.

Gallaudet (5-11, 0-2 NEAC) dropped the first game 11-1 in five innings and
lost 5-3 in the second game to the Phoenix (4-8, 2-0 NEAC).

Barlow (3-4) took the loss in the circle as she allowed 11 runs (eight
earned) on 10 hits, five walks and struck out two.

GU starting pitcher Hannah Carter (Dayton, Ohio) pitched well into the
fourth inning as she only allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits, three
walks and one strikeout. Zacarias (2-5) came in and eventually gave up the
GU lead in the fifth.

Freshman Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) led the Bison with two singles
and one RBI.

fake deaf soccer team

part of a web posting

Does Ghana have a history of scandals? YES. Coincidentally, in Australia. In
July 2009, The Deaf Football Association of Australia invited the Ghana
Deaf Team for an international friendly. Ghana travelled with a team of 39
persons to Australia. But upon their arrival, the Australians realized the
Ghanaian “deaf team” could hear. Investigation conducted by the GNA Sports
revealed that as many as 25 hearing persons were sent to Australia to
represent Ghana instead of the non-hearing persons of the Association.

The Deaf Football Australia wrote to Ghana expressing shock, disappointed
and disgusted. It therefore demanded USD 14,789.00 from Ghana, as refund
of their expenses.
