Congratulations to CSD Girls Track and Field for winning the BCL League
Meet last weekend and to the Boys Track and Field for winning the League
Championship!  Seven participants were among the leaders at their events
and will be going to the Northern Coast Sectionals on Saturday.  This
week, the Baseball team is also working hard for their spot in the BCL
Playoffs while the softball team is finishing up their regular season and
getting ready for the NCS next week.

The Foothill Athletics Association Banquet is on Thursday at 4:30pm for
Coaches and Students and then open to the fans at 5:30pm.  See you there!

Athletes of the Week – MARCELA BRENTHAM.  Our senior softball captain is

others.  She has played catcher and the infield and has been instrumental
in keeping the team together this year!

Emily Cavello, a sophomore, and Dylan Evans, a junior, competed in the Class A state
track qualifying rounds at Western Heights High School May 4-5.

Cavello made her second trip to the Class A state track qualifying rounds
for the women’s 300-meter hurdles. However, this is her first year to
pass the qualifying rounds and land a sixth-place medal with a time of
49.84 seconds.

Not only did Cavello medal at the meet, but she also broke her school and
personal records with a time at qualifiers of 49.73 seconds. This time
also put her on the top-10 record list with USA Deaf Track and Field.

Evans also made his second trip to the Class A state track meet for the
finals in the men’s long jump event. He placed fifth overall at state
last year with a jump of 19 feet, 11.25 inches.

During regionals at Alex, Evans beat his personal best with a jump of 20
feet, 9 inches and won a third-place medal. At the Western Heights High

deaf boxer

part of newspaper story

Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions

Julian Smith of Chicago annihilated Brian McElrath of Cleveland
in the opening round of their 152-pound matchup.

Smith, 27, is an explosive fighter with a professional future waiting
after the tournament.

He is also deaf.

Coach Pierre Scott communicates with Smith during his bouts by waving a
brightly colored towel different ways.

“I came up with the towel system for him because we wanted a secret of
our own,” he said. “When he’s fighting other guys, he can’t hear
what their coaches are telling them. This is my way of communicating with
him. And there’s so many different things I do with the towel because he
works with hand signals.”

It’s working for them. And Smith, originally from Robbins, Illinois, is
a legit title threat at 152 pounds.

“I’ve got him now where he’s learning how to box more, be more
settled and pick his shots,” Scott said.

Smith dropped McElrath in the first, then put him to the canvas for good
with a right hand seconds later.

note:
Marvin Marshall, attending Gallaudet, won the District of Columbia Golden
Gloves championship in 1945. He then participated at the National
Golden Gloves championships in New York, but lost and was eliminated.
