random deafsports thoughts

There was a story about the men’s basketball team of
Indiana University of Pennsylvania forgetting to bring
their uniforms for their game with Edinboro, 100 miles
away.

One of the team managers forgot to bring the bag
containing these uniforms. The team had to borrow
old uniforms from the Edinboro team – and won the
game!

Can’t happen to Gallaudet? It did, but not the
uniforms, the bag of practice footballs! In 1965,
Gallaudet had a road game against Delaware Valley
College. One of the team managers forgot the bag
and arrived at the Delaware Valley campus, borrowing
practice balls from the opposing team.

Did Gallaudet win? No, it was a 48-0 defeat.

Who was the forgetful manager? DeafDigest Sports
editor as a young man.

Coach Gary Klingensmith was not too happy about it.

Did the forgotten bag contribute to the defeat?
No, Delaware Valley was much too strong for
Gallaudet.

random deafsports thoughts

there are always a few schools that get angry at DeafDigest
Sports editor not being able to make Deaf All-American
basketball nominations.

They do not send DeafDigest Sports editor their basketball
scores throughout the season, yet feel they are entitled
to make these nominations.

The response is still the same, no scores, no nominations.

By now, you all know that our Varsity Girls Basketball team is continuing
their historical season this week. They won their first Northern Coast
Section
Championship in school history. They dominated the game and led by 15
points before the beginning of the fourth quarter but with all starters
experiencing foul
trouble, Laytonville crept in as close as 4 points! Fortunately, CSD
prevailed with our rebounding and clutch free throws and emerged
victorious at 46-40!

We will be hosting the CIF NorCal State Playoffs for the first time in
Girls Basketball on Wednesday at 7pm against Forest Lake Christian from
Auburn! The CSD
Foothills Athletics Association and Parodi Charitable Trust Board will be
sponsoring every CSD student to attend this game and ask that you bring
just $1 for
admission! So let?s fill up our Big Gym and keep pushing our girls to the
next round!

We also will have our baseball season opener on Wednesday afternoon if the
weather cooperates then a Track Meet this weekend in San Francisco as well
as the Final
Four of the Girls Basketball and Cheerleading?s state playoffs if we win
on Wednesday

Athlete of the Week ? JUSTINE LOCATELLI, our sophomore guard on the
basketball team has improved tremendously as of late. She is a good ball
handler and spacer but
she displayed a lot of confidence playing extended minutes in the NCS
Championship game when the starters were experiencing foul trouble and
helped us win this big
game. More importantly, everyone knows that she always shows up ready to
play with a good attitude every day!

DeafDigest Sports has brought this up many times in the past and
will continue to bring this up from time to time.

Coaches/athletic directors that do not give basketball scores
to DeafDigest Sports are not being invited to submit their nominations for
All-American honors.  This does not apply to basketball but also
to fall season sports – football, volleyball, soccer.

random deafsports thoughts

Did Gallaudet ever play against Syracuse University in
a volleyball contest?

A friend emailed DeafDigest Sports editor a copy of an
old deaf community newsletter that ran a short story
of Gallaudet vs Syracuse in volleyball.

The date was vague but apparently sometime in the late
eighties. It said Syracuse defeated Gallaudet 15-9 and
15-10.

During that Syracuse trip, Gallaudet also played
Cortland  State and lost 15-8 and 15-9.

Reading the story carefully, it said that Charles Holmes
was one of the Gallaudet players, so obviously it must
have been a men’s team. But was it a varsity or a club
program?

Does anyone know?

Gallaudet advances to NEAC women’s basketball championship as Bison defeat
Keuka, 60-54

KEUKA PARK, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University women’s basketball team will
advance to its second North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
championship since it joined the conference in 2010-11.

Gallaudet (17-9) edged out Keuka College (19-6) here Saturday in the NEAC
semifinal with a 60-54 victory.

The Bison doubled up the Wolves in the fourth quarter, 16-8.

Senior guard/forward Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) led all-scorers with
26 points, 13 rebounds and three steals. Neild, the NEAC Player of the
Year, was a perfect 15-for-15 from the free throw line.

Junior guard Kendall Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) scored 18 points and
grabbed seven rebounds. Senior forward Kelli Barnes (Cliffside, N.C.)
added seven points and two blocks while sophomore guard Emelia Beldon
(Frederick, Md.) compiled six points, six assists, five steals and three
rebounds.

Keuka was led by guard Sam Laranjo’s 18-point game as she passed out three
assists, made four steals and grabbed three rebounds.

The two teams were knotted at 13 after the first quarter and the Wolves
led 32-27 at the half.

BISON TRACKS

GU scored 22 points in the paint
The Bison outrebounded the Wolves by two, 43-41
Gallaudet scored 14 fast-break points
Keuka received 24 points from its bench
SUNY Poly (21-5) defeated Penn St.-Abington (11-14) in the other
semifinal, 60-47
Gallaudet avenges a 76-73 loss to Keuka earlier this month (Feb. 9)
The Bison lost to the Wolves in the NEAC semifinal round last year, 94-72
UP NEXT
GU, the No. 3 seed, will go up against top-seed SUNY Poly in Sunday’s
championship game at 2 p.m. The winner of the NEAC championship will
receive an automatic bid into the 2019 NCAA Division III women’s
basketball tournament. Gallaudet last appeared in the NEAC championship
game during the 2010-11 season when the Bison hosted Keuka and lost,
50-46.

from a newspaper story:

SUNY Poly, now 22-5, plays Gallaudet University (17-9)  a 60-54 upset
winner over defending tournament champion and final four host Keuka
College in the other semifinal  for the NEAC title at 2 p.m. Sunday.

The Wildcats played Gallaudet once during the regular season, and a
season-high 30 points by Leos led SUNY Poly to an 80-74 road victory on
Jan. 12  the start of the Wildcats 14-game winning streak.

note:
Keep in mind Gallaudet has no bench depth; must rely on its five starters
to play their A Game. Gallaudet won, despite just two points from #2
player Sabina Shysh. She had four fouls and it may be the reason for her
low scoring output.

A hearing kid, who tried out for the basketball team,
was cut. The parent complained that he attended four

The deaf coach replied:
Attending summer basketball camps do not guarantee
him a spot on the team roster. He explained that there
is much to basketball than just dribbling and shooting.
Also explained there is a youth basketball league with
its no-cut policy.

Still continuing with a deaf coach on a hearing
school basketball team

The deaf coach of a hearing team said parental abuse
was terrible. They would stand near the locker room
door to confront the deaf coach. They would send
nasty texts. And so on.

He distributed a paper that explained the team policy –
no discussions on playing time; 24-hour rule on
discussions on the previous game – beyond 24 hours,
discussions are cut off. Most important of all,
the school AD fully supported the deaf coach.

Interestingly enough when he distributed the team
policy, one of the players didn’t give it to his
parent, and when that parent complained about her
son, the coach said – just read the team policy,
something the parent didn’t know about. Since then
the parental complaints stopped!

Still continuing with a deaf coach on a hearing

regardless of the sport, there are always parents
complaining about their children not getting
playing time in games.

For basketball, the trick, according to advice
from the school athletic director, is to limit
the roster to 10 players.  The less players the
less the chances of parental complaints with the
deaf coach!

Sealts sets new NEAC championship record in 100-yard butterfly on second
day

CAZENOVIA, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University men’s swimming and diving
program dropped back in the 2019 North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC)
championship team rankings Saturday at the Schneeweiss Athletic Complex.
The Bison fell back a spot from second to third place on the second day of
competition. GU has some ground to make up on Sunday, the final day of
competition.

Wells College increased its point total 134 points from 115 to 249 as the
Express sit in first place. SUNY Cobleskill checks in with 217 points
followed by Gallaudet (171) and Cazenovia (33).

Sophomore Ben Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) set a new conference championship
record in the 100-yard butterfly as he touched the wall in 55.07 seconds.
While the time was good for a new NEAC championship record it is not fast
enough for the Gallaudet program record.

Colorado girls’ basketball

We finished our final game of the season at Cripple Creak-Victor. A bitter
sweet moment for not only the coaches, but also for our 5 seniors who
would be finishing their basketball careers. CCV had a really solid team
who could shoot the lights out of the gym. However, our team came ready to
play. We battled in the first quarter being down 16-11 and we felt good
about how we played. Unfortunately, we got into some foul trouble and they
took advantage of that scoring 17 points in the second quarter to our 2.
During half-time we gathered ourselves and come back scoring 11 to their 7
points in the third quarter. We battled to the clock hit zero and we as
coaches could not have been any prouder of our players, given that we only
had 5 suited up. For the final time in CSDB Bulldogs uniform, senior Diana
Enriquez led the team with 21 points, 8 steals, and 6 rebounds. Senior
Rose Longbine contributed with 6 points, 1 rebound and a steal. Senior
Alexis Stines came up with 2 points, 4
rebounds and a steal. Senior Chantelle Morales scored 2 points and
grabbed a rebound. Freshman Marie Padilla had a quiet night with 2
rebounds. This completes our 2018-19 season and we are already looking
forward to next year!

CCV – 48
CSDB – 31

Record 0-17

random deafsports thoughts

what is the difference between coaching a hearing school
team and a deaf school team?

Quality of players? Not really!

The deaf school a coach previously worked with has a low
enrollment. What this meant was that there were no
tryouts. Students that wanted to play automatically
made the team regardless of their skills!

With the hearing school, the coach had to conduct
tryouts to select the best players for the team.
