DeafDigest Sports editor never forgot a comment by
a past MSSD basketball coach years ago.

That coach said:

what good is it if your best player scores 40 points
in a game if he allows his opponent to score 25-30
points against him!

updates on deaf athletes with RIT teams

men’s cross country:
Otto Kingstedt of RIT men’s cross country posted yet another strong
season, and he is currently competing in the NCAA Division III National
Championship alongside his RIT teammates in Oshkosh, WI. Kingstedt
finished third overall in the NCAA Atlantic Region Championship.

An excerpt from your dear friends in the RIT Sports Information Office: He
won his first three races of the season and on Oct. 8, was named the
USTFCCCA Division III National Runner of the Week after finishing nearly a
minute ahead of the field at the Highlander Invitational. Kingstedt was
fifth at the Liberty League Championship on Oct. 27 in a season-best time
of 25:12.0 to earn first team honors for the second straight year. He is
looking to break his career-best time of 24:46.6, set at the 2017
Highlander Invitational. Kingstedt is a two-time RIT Athlete of the Week
this season.

note:
As a freshman Kingstedt was a top runner with the Gallaudet cross country
and track teams before transferring to NTID. His freshman year running
certificate can be seen in the Gallaudet trophy window.

women’s soccer:
Mia White captained the women’s soccer team to a national ranking of #15
during the regular season. White finished the season second on the team in
goals and points. She garnered Liberty League Honorable Mention accolades
as well as the Liberty League All-Academic Team.

men’s crew:
Men’s crew welcomed a lot of young prospects in Alex Kauffman, August
Koehler, Ryan Sanchez, and Ryan Stack. They all performed well during
several regattas on the varsity and novice teams.

women’s crew:
Edie Fern Wilson and Holly Edler made strong contributions to the women’s
crew program.

wrestling:
Cullen Shade (Indiana) is wrestling in the 149 pound class for the Tigers,
and he will be wrestling in the RIT Invitational on December 1st.

women’s diving:
Redshirt freshman Anna Johnson has put together stellar performances for
the women’s diving program, finishing first in the 1-meter diving
competition against LeMoyne College. The RIT women’s swimming & diving
programs are undefeated- they have won 15 straight dual meets.

women’s swiming:
Emily Lederman is battling shoulder injury at the moment, but she has
compiled a stellar swimming career thus far. She is RIT’s fastest swimmer
in the 200-yard individual medley, 400 yard individual medley, finished in
the top three 39 times prior to this season. She was the West Virginia
State Champion in high school.

men’s swimming
Super senior Dominic Ricchio and freshman Marco Narvarte are making strong
contributions to the men’s swimming program, winning multiple relay races
together.

indoor track:
Men’s and women’s Indoor Track & Field season will begin in December.
Sodiq Alaraba of Nigeria, Ethan Ettienne (Lanham, MD), and Bradley
Morrisette (Auburn, ME) headline a deep roster. Newcomers Kaila Cruz,
Jacob Covell, Maameyaa Asimah, and Brianna Pierre are poised to make an
immediate impact.

women’s hockey
Baylee Trani and McKinley Karpa are in the midst of a rebuilding season
for the NCAA Division I women’s hockey program. Trani and Karpa are seeing
some playing time as forwards.

cheerleaders:
Julia Kadzis, Marlena Rauber, Nelson Palacios, Tia Hose, and Britney
Strong are rooting the Tigers on as they prepare for RIT’s spring trip to
the National Cheerleaders Association College Nationals.

women’ softball
Brianna Bilich is awaiting the beginning of her freshman campaign as the
first baseman for the RIT softball team this spring.

note:
as compared to past seasons, there is probably a higher participation
of deaf athletes on RIT teams. There is one big reason for it -
Sean Flanagan. He is deaf and in the past, was a top hitter with the
RIT baseball team. He briefly played in an independent professional
baseball league in Maine. The RIT athletic department hired him
to specifically work with deaf athletes – something they have never
done in the past. As a result, participation has seen a big uptick!

Years ago a staffer in NTID president’s office dutifully reported
athletic updates with DeafDigest Sports. When he left NTID for
another job, no one took up the slack – and this was the reason
we have not been hearing anything on RIT’s deaf athletes since
then (until now).

On Tuesday, November 13th, your Missouri School for the Deaf Eagles took

first quarter holding the Knights to only 2 points. By the end of the 1st
half, we were all flying high and only down by 2 points. The score at half
was MSD 3 to KCA 5. Our team came out strong in the 3rd quarter keeping

our Eagles!

random deafsports thoughts

There was a story in today’s newspapers about DJ Durkin,
the fired University of Maryland football coach, who
was giving coaching tips to his assistant coaches
while he was on administrative leave – meaning he had
to stay away from football, but he didn’t.

It sort of happened to one deaf school football team
in the south in the 1951 football season. A football
coach, who was fired from his teaching and coaching
job after two seasons, attended the school football
games as a “fan.”

In the football stands, he gave football signals to
the team quarterback. People at the school were
upset about it but they seemingly were not able to
stop him. Did it help? The team had a winning season
after five consecutive losing seasons.

It all stopped when that person moved out of town
to take a new job elsewhere!

Just remembering a football team that went to state finals
in 1960. After the championship finals, that team only had
two days of basketball practice before playing the first
game of season. What did the football players say?

Don’t worry about basketball; just try to win the
championship finals.

It was North Carolina School for the Deaf, losing 13-12
in the finals. The next day they had to start practicing
basketball!

The comment came from an individual that is not employed

Which is worse – delayed mail delivery or email messages
that didn’t go through?

Way back in the eighties, DeafDigest Sports editor
used to cover track and field in deaf schools.

One spring, DeafDigest Sports editor completed tabulating
mythical National Deaf Prep track and field championships
on a 10-8-6-4-2-1 point system. Late in August, there was
a delayed mail delivery from Wyoming School for the Deaf.
The postmark date was timely but the delivery was delayed.

The entry from Wyoming School for the Deaf had a pole vaulter
who easily was #1 in the nation.

It forced re-tabulating of these 10-8-6-4-2-1 points system.

Valencia nets career-high 45 points in 81-80 loss to Immaculata

FREDERICK, Md. – Junior guard Noah Valencia (Fremont, Calif.) poured in a
career-high 45 points here Saturday in the MMI Tip-Off Tournament
consolation game but it wasn’t enough to lift the Bison to victory over
Immaculata University at Hood College. The Mighty Macs hung on to win
81-80 in the tournament sponsored by Mid-Maryland Musculoskeletal
Institute Division of the Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics.

The Bison led by two points, 75-73, with 2:47 left in regulation before
Immaculata knotted the game at 75. The Mighty Macs pulled ahead 80-75
before GU tried to rally in the waning seconds. Freshman Corey Smith
(Miami, Fla.) made a layup with 26 seconds on the scoreboard to cut the
margin to three, 80-77. Smith finished with 12 points.

Valencia was named to the all-tournament team for his efforts during the
two-day tournament.

note:
45 points in one game is not a Gallaudet record. The record is 47
points held by Kevin Milligan in the 1964-65 season.

75 yards on five plays. Junior Damonte Bray (Clinton, Md.) had a 45-yard
run and Hutchinson added runs of 10 and 16 yards before sophomore RJ

One of DeafDigest Sports editor’s interest is maintaining
a list of deaf professional baseball players, current
and past (both majors and minors).

He once made a trip to the Baseball Hall of Fame library
at Cooperstown, NY, hoping to do some research, if any,
on these deaf baseball players.

Yes, you guessed it right; the library was shut down
for repairs and renovations!

LSU swimmer and Deaf record holder, Matthew Klotz, hopes to represent
Hungary in the 2020 Summer Olympics.

Klotz is a dual citizen in America and Hungary, and he hopes to one day
soon swim for his home country.

Klotz is very different than other athletes on the LSU swim team. He is
Deaf and uses hearing aids but actually sees this as an advantage.

He holds 16 metals under his belt from Deaf and American Competitions, and
he is well recognized in the swimming community.

Klotz is currently working on switching his citizenship to make it
possible for him to swim and represent Hungary.

…………………………………………………………..

A fact wrong about Dummy Hoy?

from Ripley’s Believe it or Not

Make no mistake, William Hoy represented a true baseball legend playing
for the Cincinnati Reds and a handful of other teams from 1888 to 1902.
All told, he boasted an average of .288 and played in 1,797 games. He
claimed 2,048 hits, 40 homers, 1,429 runs, 725 bats in, and 274 assists.
He did great things for baseball.

He also helped change American perceptions about the aurally and vocally
challenged. You see, Hoy was completely deaf and mute having contracted
meningitis at the age of three. Yet, his disabilities never stopped him
from rocking the majors. So, it stands to reason that he invented the hand
signals used in baseball, right?

Wrong! While Hoy used hand signals, they came from his coaches and other
teammates and were gaining currency in ballparks across the US. Why?
Because the noisy din of baseball crowds made it difficult for umpires,
coaches, and teammates to communicate. Two years after Hoy’s retirement,
the larger-than-life umpire, Bill Klem, made them standard practice.

part of newspaper story

Alabama School for the Deaf football team pushes past limits
while making school history

TALLADEGA, Ala. (WIAT) — The Alabama School for the Deaf has fielded a
football team for 126 years, claiming 15 league championships and six
national championships. But this season, the Silent Warriors are trying
something extraordinary. For the first time ever they are playing with the
Alabama School for the Blind.

“The only question I asked myself was ‘how was I going to be able to
communicate?’,” said School for the blind senior Geordan Carter. “Me
being visually impaired the other guys being hearing impaired.”

The idea came from the head coach, Paul Kulick. He saw one major flaw in
his team.

“I’m looking at my boys and we didn’t have any size,” said Kulick.
“I’m looking at ASB, they had bigger players. I should have them come
over here and play for us.”

note:
DeafDigest Sports editor watched a football game between
Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind at Hampton (not Staunton)
and North Carolina School for the Deaf way back in the
late eighties. Two or three players on the Hampton team
were blind – and in fact, one of them intercepted a pass!
Actually the pass was batted down on the line of scrimmage
and the ball fell into the blind player’s hands.

-Nina Beamish strongly defended the other team and had several
steals/rebounds.
-Allen Cass unfortunately fouled out early in the 4th quarter, but added 2
points for us.
-Myia Dandle and Tracy Austin showed their tough spirit by playing some
aggressive defense and never giving up.
