British swimming

A busy week on the international scene.

In the European Deaf Olympics in Lublin, Poland, Wirral Metro’s Nathan
Young had great success.

Firstly he set a new GB deaf record of 59.32 in the 100m butterfly when
finishing sixth in the final.

He then set another GB deaf record in the final of the 50m butterfly,
before setting a personal best in the 100m freestyle.

In a hectic schedule he also helped the men’s team to fourth place in
the 4x100m freestyle, 4x200m freestyle and 4x100m medley relay, as well as
the mixed relay team to fourth in the 4x200m freestyle relay and fifth in
the 4x100m freestyle relay.

Gallaudet baseball involved with the All-Star game

Two events designed to attract more African American youth participation
to the national pastime will be played during the Major League
Baseball’s All-Star weekend celebration around the District of Columbia.

The Major Junior Baseball League (MJBL) and MLB are giving inner city
teams an unprecedented stage by hosting two tournaments. MJLB will play
its seventh annual East West All-Star Game at Maury Wills Park (formerly
Banneker Field) across from Howard University on June 16. Meanwhile the
inaugural MLB Commissioner’s Cup and Jennie Finch Classic for boys and
girls will be played between Gallaudet University and the Washington
Nationals Youth Baseball Academy June 13-16.

deaf Wimbledon tennis champion

Charlotte Cooper Sterry won the women’s Wimbledon championship
in 1908 at the age of 37. She lived in Great Britain.

She was deaf.

Was she involved with the Deaf Community and used Sign Language.

Doubtful.

She became completely deaf at the age of 26, already a mother of
two children.

random deafsports thoughts

Do we put Charlotte Cooper Sterry on the list of all-time
great deaf athletes? Story is above.

She was not born deaf. She became deaf at age of 26.

She developed her tennis skills while growing up as a
hearing person. After becoming deaf, she continued
to play tennis.

DeafDigest Sports would not count her as one of these
all-time great deaf athletes for that reason (her late
deafness).

8-man football story

part-time 8-man team?

Arkansas SD is mentioned in the story below

Five Full-Time, Two Part-Time Schools To Play 8-Man Football in 2018
RISON – Woodlawn High School is among five “full time” schools and
two “part-time” schools that will be playing eight-man football for
the 2018 season, Steve Roberts, associate executive director of the
Arkansas Activities Association (AAA), said Monday.

Schools had to declare their intentions to play eight-man football by July
1. Woodlawn, Augusta, Decatur, Hermitage and Little Rock Episcopal will be
the five school playing on a full-time basis.

In addition, Roberts said Arkansas Christian Academy in Bryant and
Arkansas School for the Deaf in Little Rock will be “part time”
participants. He explained that both are already committed to playing in
other eight-man leagues, but will still compete with the other schools on
a limited basis this season.

Roberts said Arkansas Christian is in an Oklahoma-based league while the
School for the Deaf is in a deaf school league. He said both schools have
expressed an interest in joining the eight-man league full-time in the
future.

Eight-man football is being played as a “club sport” for the upcoming
two-year athletic cycle, which means there will be no playoffs.

For eight-man football to become an official football classification,
Roberts said member schools of the AAA would have to vote on adding it to
the existing six football classifications (Class 2A through Class 7A).
That decision could possibly be made at the conclusion of this current
two-year cycle, which includes the 2018-19 and 2019-2020 school years.
