*Track & Field Story*

*2018*

The 2018 KSD Track & Field season ended on a positive note. KSD originally
had 12 track & field team members.  Unfortunately, we lost five
experienced
seniors last year.  Our Track & Field Schedule was for six meets including
the Great Plains Schools of the Deaf (GPSD) Championship.

Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf has been well known as the best Track
& Field team for years. In the past, they won the Berg and Seeger Classic
Championship for four straight years.  Steve Fuerst, the Minnesota State
Academy for the Deaf Head Coach, had been the Head Coach for the Olympic
Deaf Track and & Field team.  We have always respected him and his
program.
MSAD took third place for the Berg and Seeger Classic Championship this
year.

KSD lost two players this year due to disciplinary action. Both
players are valuable
to the team, worth 30 points total. The remaining players were forced to
change their events. Before we left for the Oklahoma School for the Deaf
for the GPSD Track & Field Championship with seven Deaf schools, another
player was taken off the active roster and could not go due to a freak
accident. That meant that we had 9 players for the GPSD Championship!

Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf team had won the GPSD Track and Field
Championship for six straight years. Kansas School for the Deaf had been
behind them for three years. MSAD lost two players this year, worth 30
points. KSD finally stopped their winning streak! We finally won the GPSD
Track & Field Championship. It was the first time since 2006!

The score for GPSD:

1.     Kansas School for the Deaf – 149

2.     Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf – 126

3.     Oklahoma School for the Deaf – 49

4.     Missouri School for the Deaf – 44

5.     Iowa School for the Deaf – 40

6.     Wisconsin School for the Deaf – 22

7.     Arkansas School for the Deaf – 21

As new season dawns, Mystics prepare for life without Emma Meesseman

newspaper story as abbreviated
(Emma is deaf)

As players on the Washington Mystics’ training camp roster assembled on
the practice court Wednesday morning, forward Emma Meesseman was hitting
the court in Russia, adding another championship to her resume with her
other professional team, UMMC Ekaterinburg.

The 2015 all-star is sitting out this WNBA season to rest after spending
the past five-plus years of her life playing basketball year-round.

The Mystics acknowledged Wednesday that Meesseman’s absence will be
felt: She averaged 14.1 points last season as the team’s second-leading
scorer and had 5.7 rebounds per game. Beyond that, she has been a mainstay
in Washington since she was drafted in 2013, never missing a WNBA game
until last year, when she spent a little more than a month playing with
the Belgian national team.
