new collegiate deaf swimmer

part of newspaper story

SAN ANTONIO – One of the top swimmers in the San Antonio area has been
awarded a college athletic scholarship.

Grace Hale will be swimming for Southern Illinois University.

Hale has been swimming most of her life while dealing with a disability.

“They found out when I was 3 that I had hearing loss,” she said.

“Her club swim team coach does have to make a few adjustments. Make sure
you’re facing that way. And her teammates, as I said, have been with her
so many years. (They) are able to fill in the gaps, very smooth,” said Lou
Walker, head coach of the Alamo Area Aquatics Association.

“I have trouble with sets, you know, people talking to me during
practice,” Hale said. “I don’t think it affects me in any way. I don’t
want it to, at least.”

Her disability didn’t affect her when she swam the 50-meter freestyle for
Reagan High School in the district swim meet, where she won first place
with a time of 24.48 seconds.

“I was recruited as an athlete, not as a deaf athlete,” she said. “I
didn’t want to use being deaf as like, ‘Oh, like she was only allowed on
the swim team because she was deaf.’”

Hale’s father was the one who finally told college coaches that his
daughter is deaf. The coaches said they never had a clue.

………………………………………

college deaf baseball player

Michael Gil was a member of the Ancilla College
(Indiana) baseball team for two seasons

He would have played this season as a junior
but didn’t.

………………………………………

indoor footbal deaf player

Tee Shepherd, a former Notre Dame recruit who
transferred to Missisippi and then bombed out,
played last season with Arizona Rattlers of
Indoor Football League.

He is not on the roster this season. A sweeping
google search could not come up with updated
information on him.

Apparently he is not playing football this season?

…………………………………….

NCAA-I deaf punter was not drafted

Arthur Hart, the punter with Charlotte, a NCAA-I
team, was not drafted.

Apparently he has not signed a free agent contract,
nor has been invited as a non-contract player for
any of these NFL rookie camps.

He played football at Wisconsin School for the Deaf
and at Model Secondary School for the Deaf.
