Marie Philip School Volleyball match report.

Date: Monday October 15, 2018

Location: Marie Philip School, Framingham, MA

Result: Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall 3, MPS 0 (25-14, 25-21, 25-21)

Today we played the first of four home matches this school week as we
hosted IGC opponent Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall.  The Lady Ghosts did not
have their best game, and we committed many receiving, digging, and
passing errors.  It was tough to get our momentum going.  We played hard
and kept the match competitive in the 2nd and 3rd sets.  Unfortunately,
the CH-CH Chargers were too consistent today and ended up sweeping us 3
sets to none.  However, in our locker room after the match, our girls were
disappointed with their performance and were very determined to play
again.  Fortunately we have matches tomorrow and Wednesday, so they won’t
have to wait long.  Our Lady Ghosts will take in the coaches’ feedback and
make necessary adjustments for a better game tomorrow when we host the
Newman School.  Our season record is now 10-6 (4-5 IGC).

Shayla Rochette (So.) – 6 Aces, 3 Kills, 1 Dig, 4 Receptions, and 7
service points
Zora Elliott-Mendelsohn (Fr.) – 1 Ace, 2 Kills, 4 Assists, 1 Dig, and 4
service points
Carleigh Babbit (8th) – 3 Aces, 1 Dig, 6 Receptions, and 7 service points
Lily Fruguglietti (Jr.) – 1 Assist, 1 Dig, 5 Receptions, and 1 service
Samantha Fernsebner (8th) – 1 Assist, 6 Receptions, and 2 service points
Faith Kirlis (6th) -  – 1 Ace and 2 service points
Chloe Martin (7th) – 1 Assist and 2 service points

Minnesota volleyball

MSAD makes a run to conference championship game

The Minnesota Academy for the Deaf made it to the championship game of the
Twin Cities Athletic Conference Tournament over the weekend with a pair of
upset wins.

Seventh-seeded MSAD began the tournament matching up with an International
School of Minnesota/Eagle River Academy team that beat the Trojans in
three sets earlier in the season and came into the tournament seeded

This time was much different, as MSAD needed only two sets to get the win,
taking 25-21 and 26-24 wins.

St Mary’s soccer


After a long week of intense NFCAA league matches with no substitutes, the
Bisons now headed out east to Rochester School for the Deaf for their
annual Homecoming tournament. Although we were feeling confident after our
first win last Thursday, it was just a matter of time before our game
schedule and limited number of players this week began to wear us down.
Our first match today was against the host school. The Wildcats controlled
the tempo of the game from start to finish. We were unable to establish
any offensive momentum and RSD was able to take advantage of our exhausted
defense and rookie goal keeper(Mike Norris). Although Rochester was able
to contain our attack, they couldnяяt prevent Nick Barrus from
continuing his scoring streak with 2 goals. Our 2nd match today is against
EC Drury from north of the border. Hopefully we will be able to fix some
of our previous mistakes and show our a Canadian opponent a good match.


Despite a better effort by the Bisons, the results were unfortunately the
same as they were in our first match of the day. We have found ourselves
in a bit of a slump. We struggled to generate any offensive attack and our
defense had some bad breakdowns. We ended up losing to our international
opponent by a 3 goal margin, 5-2. It should be noted that although teams
have found ways to slow Nick Barrus, he still finds ways to score. He was
able to notch his 12th goal of the season. That said, the 4 starters that
having been missing this entire week will be back in our lineup tomorrow
and not only will our boys be able to play in their natural positions but
we should be able to rotate our players in & out giving them a much needed
rest. Stay tuned for our results against Ohio School for Deaf.


In our 3rd game of this round robin tournament, we matched up against
division 1 powerhouse Ohio School School for the Deaf. The Spartans had
been easily beating their competition here so far so the Bisons decided to
commit to loading up on defense in the 1st half and be very deliberate
when taking our chances on offense. The philosophy was to keep the game as
competitive as long as possible and potentially force OT. We did an
excellent job of limiting and blocking the Spartans shots in the 1st half.
We were able to keep the score to a 1-0 deficit. However, in the 2nd half
we were forced to take more chances in an effort to try and score
ourselves and it left our defense and goalie exposed to OSDяяs potent
attack. The Spartans ended up running away with a victory 7-0. Our last
match of the tournament will be against EC Drury again in a consolation


In our final game of the weekend, we played against EC Drury again for the
2nd time in as many days. Our goal was to end on a positive note and clean
up as many mistakes as possible in an effort to get us back on the right
track heading into ESDAA tournament week. The Bisons struck first off the
foot of Ethan Antone. The Canadians put their next few shots past our goal
keeper to take a 2-1 lead into the half. Givon Blackwell was able to tie
the game 2-2 after he collected a rebound off of a Nick Barrus shot. EC
Drury stormed back and once again took the lead on a penalty shot. With
time winding down, the Bisons turned up our offensive pressure and nearly
brought the game into OT.  Unfortunately we missed a wide open shot.
Despite the 3-2 loss, we had many opportunities to score and win. We were
a happy that we started to play together as a team once again and
corrected some of our issues. We now enter a small break from games of
which our boys desperately need in an effort to
get some rest and heal up.

Overall Record: 1-6-2

Individual Stats:
Nick Barrus- 3 goals (11th, 12th, 13th of the season).  Nick was also
awarded RSD Homecoming All-Star award
Givon Blackwell- 2 goals (2nd & 3rd of the season)
Ethan Antone- 1 goal (3rd of the season)

random deafsports thoughts

Many great (hearing) high school athletes never
play sports in college.

What about the deaf?

Yes, many great deaf high school athletes
(both deaf schools and mainstreamed) never
play college sports.

Happens to hearing and the deaf
