Bison win nine events en route to capturing Gallaudet University
Invitational

WASHINGTON – The Bison men’s track and field team won the 2019 Gallaudet
University Invitational on a sunny Saturday at Thomas O. Berg Track in the
nation’s capital. The Bison compiled 209 team points to win going away as
they defeated University of Mary Washington (132), Goucher College (35)
and Medgar Evers College (31).

Gallaudet won nine of the 18 events in the lone home meet for the Bison
this season.

Freshman Eric Gregory (Metairie, La.) won the 100- and 200-meter dash
events with times of 10.87 and 21.39 seconds, respectively. Gregory’s time
in the 200-meter dash improves his school record mark in that event. His
previous best time was 21.56 set last week at the Hopkins/Loyola
Invitational in Baltimore.

Gallaudet swept the top spots in the 100- and 200-meter dash events.
Senior Toraneau Varice (Pompano Beach, Fla.) shined on Senior Day with
second-place finishes in those two events. Varice recorded a time of 11.06
in the 100-meter dash and 22.20 in the 200-meter dash. Freshman Brady
Perry (Frederick, Md.) was third in the 100-meter dash (11.42) while
freshman Omar Harvey (Newark, N.J.) was third in the 200-meter dash
(23.41).

Senior Michael Haynes (Edwardsville, Ill.) won the 110-meter hurdles
(15.80) and was second in the 400-meter dash (53.23). Fellow senior
Montray Roberts (Dallas, Texas) was third in the 400-meter dash (53.49).

Senior Gunner Hahn (Delvan, Wis.) won the 400-meter hurdles (1:00.61) and
was third in the 110-meter hurdles (16.27).

Junior Dalton Attanasi (Hammonton, N.J.) took first in the 5,000-meter run
(22:38.94) followed by freshman Yazeed Al-Khatib (Bronx, N.Y.) with a time
of 24:29.88. Al-Khatib won the 3,000-meter run (12:37.27) as he ran
unopposed.

In the field events, freshman Liam Painter (Edgewood, N.M.) won the pole
vault as he cleared 2.99 meters.

Junior Jamal Garner (Jacksonville, Ill.) was second in the high jump as he
cleared 1.75 meters and placed second in the shot put (12.57 meters) and

four events. Freshman Hannah Wetzel (Fremont, Calif.) led the way with
wins in the high jump (1.50 meters), long jump (5.22 meters) and improved
her own school record in the triple jump (11.13 meters). Her old mark of
10.31 meters was set last month at the Jim Taylor Invitational. Junior
Jakkisha Smith (Dallas, Texas) was second in the triple jump with a top
jump of 10.44 meters.

Senior Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) shined on Senior Day as she won the
pole vault as she cleared 2.39 meters while freshman Krista Kachnik
(Henderson, Nev.) was second with a top mark of 2.24 meters.

Sophomore Sabrina Hernandez (Ashland, Va.) finished second in the javelin
with a top throw of 25.20 meters.

He was the last deaf player to make it in the majors
for years before Curtis Pride came on board.

For years Dick was a steady .300 hitter in the minors in 40’s and 50’s

He only played one season in the majors.

Gallaudet baseball

Gallaudet wins first NEAC games of the season, Upton sets new hits record

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – Gallaudet University picked up its first two North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) wins of the season here Friday with
wins over SUNY Cobleskill. Gallaudet (9-23, 2-9 NEAC) scored two runs in
the eighth inning to defeat the Fighting Tigers (11-15, 6-5 NEAC) in the
first game, 5-3. In the second game, GU scored five times in the seventh
en route to a 7-4 win.

In the top of the third inning of the first game, senior Cameron Upton
(Vicksburg, Miss.) singled to set the new program record for career hits.
Upton surpasses William Bissell (2010-14), who had 206 career hits.

Game 1: Gallaudet 5, SUNY Cobleskill 3 (F/8)
GU trailed early in the first game before the buff and blue took a 3-2
lead in the top of the sixth inning. Sophomore Darren Drolsbaugh
(Lansdale, Pa.) singled home freshman Josh Dugan (San Antonio, Texas), who
walked and advanced on a wild pitch and sacrifice bunt.

The Bison were two outs away from closing out the first game in seven
innings but the Fighting Tigers tied it up on a RBI single by Eddy Garcia.
SUNY Cobleskill loaded the bases with two outs but a ground out ended the
inning as the game went to extra frames.

In the top of the eighth, Gallaudet scored two times to take back the lead
and eventually earn its first conference win of the season

Game 2: Gallaudet 7, SUNY Cobleskill 4
In the second game, GU struck first with a run in the first inning before
the teams traded runs, leads and broke one tie.

The Fighting Tigers plated two runs in the bottom of the fifth off
Drolsbaugh (2-2), GU’s starting pitcher, to take a 4-2 lead.

That two-run lead stood until the seventh inning when Gallaudet scored
five times to regain the lead for good. GU scored five runs on four hits
and took advantage of three Fighting Tigers’ errors in the field along
with one balk, one wild pitch and one passed ball.

GU had four different batters with two or more hits, led by Altman’s
3-for-5 performance with a double. The top five batters in Gallaudet’s
line-up scored at least one run and recorded at least one hit.

note:
these two wins were big wins. Not only these were conference wins
but it brings Gallaudet to 9 wins so far this season. Just one more
win would bring Gallaudet into a double-digit win season. Past four
seasons Gallaudet won 9, 9, 9 and 8 games respectively.

baseball or track at a deaf school

Years ago, DeafDigest Sports editor had a discussion with
a coach at a deaf school on which sport is better –
baseball or track.

The coach said that in baseball, you need 9 starters plus
at least 2 or 3 subs. In track, you would need sprinters,
middle distance runners, long distance runners, weight
throwers and jumpers – which would mean at least 15-20
tracksters.

Yes, times have changed. Less tracksters means less
events to participate.

a past deaf Toughman fighter

part of newspaper story

Hollis later rounded out his athletic resume with a year-long boxing
stint, winning 20 straight bouts to qualify for the Toughman Contest. The
lightweight advanced all the way to the final and was one round away from
taking the state title when the top-seeded fighter, who was deaf, didn’t
hear the second-round bell and got in a punch after Hollis had dropped his
gloves. The blow opened up Hollis’s eye and, despite the underdog’s pleas,
forced the referee to call the fight.

note:
this fight took place in Alabama in the late seventies. Do not know
who that deaf fighter was but he was the state champion, even if
fans thought he didn’t deserve it.

Old restaurant; new restaurant

Last night the Gallaudet men’s basketball team had its
end-of-season awards dinner at the new restaurant – Union
District Oystar Bar & Lounge. It is located a block away
from the Gallaudet campus. DeafDigest Sports editor was a guest.

Four employees at that restaurant are deaf; a couple of them
were past Gallaudet athletes.

That new restaurant was previously Gusti’s (G & G as renamed
later). It was a popular weekend hangout for Gallaudet
students that craved pizzas and Italian food.

Anyway Gusti’s was the sponsor of the Gallaudet club
hockey team during the late sixties and early seventies,
providing the team with uniforms and league entry
fees. That team, loaded with hockey-playing Canadian
students, won a conference championship one season.

So, the old restaurant helped sponsor the Gallaudet
hockey team.

And the new restaurant providing employment to past Gallaudet
athletes.

Nice to know the restaurant’s links to Gallaudet athletics.

Emma, who is 6’5 tall and is from Belgium, is deaf
but functions as a hearing person. She took time out
from WNBA last season to recuperate from the rigors
of back to back pro seasons (Europe then WNBA then
back to Europe).

She is supposed to report to the Washington Mystics
pre-season training camp. But the buzz among
followers of WNBA is that she may, again, stay
home in Europe!

random deafsports thoughts

Speaking of Old Dominion University (see above), it was
a member of the Mason-Dixon Conference in the sixties,
that Gallaudet belonged to.

Fans hated the university because it was new and huge
and won many conference contests in all sports.

In wrestling, Gallaudet’s Phil Aiello faced the Old
Dominion wrestler in the semi finals. The fans booed
Old Dominion and cheered the Gallaudet wrestler.

In a shocking upset, the Gallaudet wrestler won and
reached the finals while the fans erupted in cheers
(hearing fans, not deaf fans).

The Gallaudet wrestler did not win the finals, but for
him, it was something to remember – a standing room
only ovation, only because he defeated a hated
opponent!

Gallaudet swept by Keuka to close out New York trip

KEUKA PARK, N.Y. – Gallaudet University wrapped up its New York road trip
here Saturday with a doubleheader loss to Keuka College. The Wolves
(10-14, 6-4 NEAC) swept the Bison (10-16, 2-10 NEAC) with a 14-2 win in
the first game in five innings followed by a close 4-3 game in the second
contest.

Game 1: Keuka 14, Gallaudet 2 (F/5)
Keuka jumped out early as it plated five runs in the first inning and a
combined five runs over the course of the next two innings as the Wolves
led 10-0 after three.

GU got on the scoreboard in the top of the fourth with two runs with
back-to-back RBI doubles by senior Jacklyn Zacarias (Montebello, Calif.)
and sophomore Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.).

Keuka tacked on four more runs in the bottom of the fourth to cap the
scoring.

Freshman Freya Seremeth (Frederick, Md.) took the loss in the circle for
the Bison as she allowed 14 runs on eight hits and seven walks.

Colleen Mooney earned the win as she threw three shutout innings where she
struck out five.

Game 2: Keuka 4, Gallaudet 3
GU scored three times in the top of the first inning to take an early 3-0
lead. The Bison took advantage of an error by the Wolves, which allowed
two runners to scamper home to give Gallaudet the early 3-0 lead.

Keuka struck back with two runs in the bottom halve due to a Bison error.

The game remained 3-2 until the bottom of the third when Keuka tied the
game on a RBI ground out. The Wolves took the lead for good in the bottom
of the fifth.

Neild collected both of GU’s hits in the contest as she went 2-for-3 at
the plate with one run scored.

There are no USADB basketball scores.

Why?

The USADB website has not been updated to inform us which
teams won the championships.

Surprised?

No.

For some reason, national deaf basketball publicity

tournament is no exception.

Shame?

Yes.

A sad newspaper header

part of a newspaper header

What’s the future of the School for the Deaf property in Sioux Falls?

Part of the South Dakota School for the Deaf property is an underutilized
football field and track now mostly only used when it’s mowed.

note:
The school’s last boys’ basketball team was in the
1985-86 season.

The school dropped its 6-man football team, not sure of
the year but must be in the fifties

The school dropped its track team sometime in the late
seventies.

The school continues to exist as a statewide resource
center on education of the deaf, but not as a stand-alone
school

What is the role of Deaf Basketball Camps?

Is it to teach ALL campers how to play basketball
better?

or

Is it for the Camp management to pick the best
players among the campers to form an all-camp
team to play games against other hearing basketball
camps? And to ignore the basketball needs of
lesser-talented deaf campers?

This was the accusation several angry deaf schools basketball
