Gallaudet men’s basketball

Gallaudet mourns the passing of Men’s Basketball Assistant Coach John C. Perry

Dear Campus Community:

On behalf of the Athletics Department, I welcome you back for the spring
semester.

It is my sad duty to share with you that John Charles “Bird” Perry, ’96,
who was involved with our men’s basketball program for nearly two decades,
passed away on January 15. John was 47 years old.

John played basketball for four years and served as an assistant coach for
15 years. His knowledge of fundamentals, his strategic thinking, and his
keen sense of how best to motivate players were enormous assets to our
program.

Sealts earns fifth NEAC Men’s Swimming & Diving Student-Athlete of the Week honor

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) announced
its conference student-athlete of the week awards for the week of Jan. 22
and Gallaudet University sophomore Ben Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) was selected
as the NEAC Men’s Swimming & Diving Student-Athlete of the Week for the
fifth time this season.

Sealts led Gallaudet last week with a split in two home meets. On Jan. 18,
Sealts finished first in the 200-yard backstroke (2:07.21) and 200-yard
individual medley (2:09.41) against Penn St.-Altoona. He also placed
second in the 200-yard butterfly and 400-yard freestyle relay. The next
day against Stevenson University, Sealts won the 200-yard butterfly with a
personal best time of 2:12.27. He also won the 200-yard backstroke
(2:08.63), 200-yard individual medley (2:11.13) and 400-yard freestyle
relay (5:15.17).

Fremont basketball

The Eagles returned home from Clerc Classic with heavy hearts for the
seniors but a lot of good experience and optimism for our underclassmen.
The Girls Basketball team finished in 4th place and the Boys Basketball
team came out in 6th.  The level of the cheerleading competition kept on
rising every year and this year was absolutely over the top!  Our team did
a beautiful job but because all of the scores were very close, little
mistakes put us in 4th.

We return home with a lot left to play for in the BCL and the NCS the rest
of the way.  We have a full slate of games this week including four home
games on Thursday

Clerc Classic Summary – TSD

*Varsity Boys – *

On Thursday, we played a tough New Mexico  team and a 6’10” guy. We
led by
only four by halftime but went on to win the battle in the second half as
we won 61-46.

We faced Indiana in the semifinals and we led the entire game until the
final minute when Indiana found a way to win the game on a 9-1 run. The
loss was devastating for everyone of us. We had to move on quickly and
prepare for the third place game against Model.

Model boys played really hard and gave us our second loss of the
tournament. Our record stands at 11-9.

Jonah Hazelett was the lone selection to the all tournament team.

———————-

*Varsity Girls*
Our girls basketball team began the 2019 Clerc Classic with our perfect
season being the talk of the tournament.  Upon arrival, it did not take
long for fans, coaches, and other participating athletes to bring up our
perfect season in casual conversations.  The players handled the pressure
with extreme maturation as we approached the first game of the tournament
against #8-seeded Arizona (2-12).  The team made quick work against
Arizona
with three players scoring double-figures.  The final result was 67-17.
Each player scored during the game and played an important role in the
victory.
The second game would pair us against #4-seeded CSD-Fremont (12-2) and
fans
questioning our ability to handle a solid team led by a veteran coach,
David Hamilton.  As with the Arizona game, three players scored
double-digit points as the team put up a solid defensive effort.  CSD
Fremont scored the lowest point total of the season against us, continuing
our focus as a “defense-first” team. The result for the semi-final game:
43-23.

The championship game would be the fifth straight match up against
#2-seeded Maryland (13-2).  It did not take long for Maryland to build an
early 10-3 lead before the team woke up and held them to three points in
the 2nd quarter.  Our halftime lead would be 19-11.  The Texas girls came
out strong in the second half and our defensive pressure became too much
for Maryland as we steadily built a lead that went as high as 19 points.
Maryland would cut into the lead late in the 4th quarter but could not
steal the momentum from us as we went on to win by 11 points, 47-36.  This
would be our second straight Clerc Classic victory over Maryland as the
team now has their sights set on finishing their season strong with
district and state competitions.

*TSD Cheerleading*
The experience at Clerc Classic was GREAT! All of us really enjoy meeting
many old and new faces! We were very nervous about the cheerleading
competition, but we nailed it and came in third place out of six schools!
BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Kourtney Dolliole and Annabelle Scroggins on
winning
the All Star Cheerleader award!! We are very proud to bring of our
accomplishment.

random deafsports thoughts

For some reason DeafDigest Sports editor does not understand,
there are some schools that would regularly send in their
game reports. This is great – but would, for some reason,
stop sending in their reports.

When reports are stopped, it places – in serious jeopardy,
their invitations to submit All-American nominations.

In other words, do continue sending in reports – do not stop!
