COLLEGEVILLE, Pa. – The Gallaudet University women’s track and field
program began its indoor schedule here Saturday at the Frank Colden

1.43 meters to place fifth. She followed that up with an 11th place finish
out of 29 jumpers in the long jump. On her third and final jump, she

Gallaudet stumbles against Cazenovia on Alumni Madness Day

WASHINGTON – It was a hot start both figuratively and literally for the
Gallaudet University men’s basketball team here Saturday on Padden Court
in the Field House before an Alumni Madness Day crowd of 323. The Bison,
clad in hot pink cancer awareness uniforms supplied by Route 66
promotions, came out and scored three of their first four baskets to take
an early lead over Cazenovia College in a North Eastern Athletic
Conference (NEAC) game.

The lead was short-lived as the visiting Wildcats quickly tied the game
and ran past the Bison en route to a 78-64 win.

Cazenovia (11-9, 7-5 NEAC) made 10 of 16 shots from 3-point range in the
first half to tally 43 points and take an eight-point lead, 43-35, into
halftime.

Both teams cooled down in the second half as they shot 30 percent or less
from the field.

Gallaudet (4-16, 4-8 NEAC) tied the game at 55 at the 9:15 mark in the
second half, part of a 9-2 run, but couldn’t regain the lead. Cazenovia
scored the next 11 points, over a five-minute span, to make it an uphill
climb for the Bison.

note:
Chris Miller, who is deaf, was one of the three referees in the game.

women’s basketball
Bison trio honored on Senior Day as win streak continues

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s basketball team rolled to
its sixth straight win here Saturday with an 84-72 win over Cazenovia
College in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) contest. The game
also marked Senior Day for three Bison along with Alumni Madness day as
hundreds of GU alumni came back to support the buff and blue.

Gallaudet (13-8, 10-2 NEAC) led for the majority of the game and extended
its lead to 20 points in the fourth quarter over Cazenovia (5-14, 4-9
NEAC). GU led 19-18 after the first quarter and took a 43-32 lead into
halftime.

Prior to the start of the game, the Bison women’s basketball program
recognized their three seniors; Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.), Kelli Barnes
(Cliffside, N.C.) and Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.); along with their
families and friends.

The senior trio did not disappoint as they combined to score 63 of GU’s 84
points. Neild tallied a game-high 29 points, 10 rebounds, five assists,
five steals and one block. Shysh added 28 points, eight boards, three
assists and two steals. Barnes chipped in six points, two boards, three
assists and one block.

ASHINGTON – Senior Jana Kiefer (Leander, Texas) saved her best for last.
Gallaudet University’s lone senior on the women’s swimming and diving team
posted career best times on Senior Day here Saturday in the Field House
pool.

Gallaudet (2-7) lost the dual meet to Elizabethtown College, 201-38, but
that didn’t damper Kiefer’s day.

The senior started the day with a second-place finish in the 1,000-yard
freestyle (13:34.54). She followed that with third-place finishes in the
200-yard breaststroke (3:23.96) and 200-yard IM (2:55.04). All three times
were personal records for Kiefer.

GU men’s swimming wraps up regular-season schedule at home

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University men’s swimming and diving program
was outnumbered here Saturday as a deep and fast Elizabethtown College
squad swam away with a 209-35 dual meet win in the Field House pool.

Sophomore Ben Sealts (Ottawa, Ohio) won GU’s only event on the day when he
touched the wall first in the 200-yard backstroke with a time of 2:02.38.
Sealts finished second in the 100-yard butterfly (57.17) and 100-yard
breaststroke (1:05.16), as he was edged out by Guillaume Gouronc (1:04.34)

random deafsports thoughts

deaf referees and deaf umpires do not get opportunities
in pro sports.

How many deaf referees/umpires in NFL, MLB, NFL, NBA,
WNBA? Or even in European top level professional
soccer leagues?

Zero!

DeafDigest Sports editor had the opportunity to watch
deaf referee Chris Miller in action yesterday at a
Gallaudet men’s basketball game.

Miller, who officiates NCAA-I level basketball games,
pretty much controlled the tempo, while working in
concert with two hearing referees. His gestures,
body language and hand movements made it so easy
for the players and the coaches to follow. And
when coaches and players mouth off, he quickly
shuts them up!
