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.

St Mary’s track

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.

Local Equestrian Among Top 20 at Longines FEI World Cup

newspaper story

Local equestrian Jamie Barge placed 16th among 40 riders at the
prestigious Longines FEI World Cup. The top event for horse jumping was
held in Paris, France, last weekend. Barge, who is severely hearing
impaired, was only one of 11 riders on the U.S. team.

This was the second year in a row the 31-year-old Barge made it to the
world championship along with her horse Luebbo.

Deaf Jiu Jitsu champion

Sara Kovaliov, a 16-year old deaf Israeli girl, won the
silver medal at the Under 18 World Championship.

At the airport in Abu Dhabi, a security guard asked
her to follow him to a room. She was worried that
it was a national security issue.

She was wrong. The security people were shocked
that a deaf girl would win a world championship
silver medal against hearing competitors!

They gave her an expensive watch as a gift!
