Is University of Kentucky making it harder for deaf/
hard of hearing basketball players?

Years back in the early fifties, Houston Nutt played
at Kentucky for one season but then transferred to
Oklahoma State. He was not an impact player at both
colleges.

And now this – Quade Green – see college deaf athlete

A dedication

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to
Terry Clark, past Mississippi SD football
coach that departed us.

His funeral took place yesterday.

Terry coached 11-man football for many
years and reached a crisis when he only
had 9 returning players for the following
season. In order to continue football,
he made a successful transition to 8-man
football.

He was very dedicated to coaching, even
making sure the football field was in
tip-top condition. For that reason,
the MSD football field was considered
the best.

When school closed for the summer, he
took responsibility for the upkeep of
the football field.

Said a past assistant coach:

Terry was very strict coach with discipline.
He even removed a starting quarterback
because has a smoker.

One of his players, Steve McNeese, who
later played at Gallaudet, represented his
school at the state North-South All Star
game.

Normally those that play baseball at Gallaudet have had
experience playing baseball – but in the past there have
been outstanding athletes (in other sports) that have
never played baseball before and yet became of the
team’s better hitters!

Second-year coach Brent Welsch has a nice nucleus.

Sophomore Henry Zlando was the Great Plains Schools for the Deaf
Conference champion last year in the 400 and also medaled in the 100, 400
relay and 800 relay.

This year we may have Henry focus on individual events: the 100, 200, 400
and long jump, Welsch said.

Sophomore Damien Holste medaled at the GPSD in the 1600, 3,200 and 1,600
relay. Jauden Kohl returns after a year off. Two years ago he was a GPSD
medalist.

Also returning are junior Nathan Weigel (throws and relays), senior Ben
Brakke (sprints and relays), junior Jacob Taylor (throws) and sophomore
Austin Stage (hurdles and relays).

On the newcomers list are TJ Nipper (middle distances) and Gregory
Musinde-Kazeba (hurdles and high jump), along with Angel Torres, CJ Autery

Do USA deaf sporting groups have issues with the dates of
Deaflympics and world deaf championships?

In USA, the out-of-season months are the summer times with
high schools and colleges. Overseas there is no such a thing
as out-of-season months – hence schooling conflicts with
international competition dates.

GU rallies to defeat Washington Adventist in first road game of the season

TAKOMA PARK, Md. – The Gallaudet University softball team hit the road for
the first time this season and made the short trip to play Washington
Adventist University, here Sunday afternoon, in a non-conference
seven-inning game.

Gallaudet (5-5) rallied to score five runs in the seventh inning en route
to a 9-6 win over the NAIA-affiliated Shock (1-5).

Washington Adventist (1-5) scored six runs in the second inning to end the
day for GU freshman pitcher Elizabeth Stern (Lexington, Mass.). Freshman
Kendall Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) came on and pitched the remainder of
the game for the Bison.

This is the second time in nine days these two teams faced each other. The
Bison defeated the Shock, 6-5, on March 15 at the GU Softball Complex.

UP NEXT

Gallaudet can’t hold back Bethany Bison in final Spring Break game

FORT MYERS, Fla. – The Gallaudet University baseball team scored five runs
in the bottom of the seventh inning here Friday against the Bethany
(W.Va.) College Bison to take an 8-3 lead. GU only needed six outs to
pick-up its third straight win during the 2019 Spring Break trip but
Bethany scored six times in the eighth and went on to win 9-8.

Gallaudet (7-12) trailed 2-0 early on after three innings but came back to
tie the game at two in the bottom of the fourth inning, after a RBI double
by freshman Shea Sliva-Wynne (Richmond, Texas) and a RBI single by junior
Austin Altman (Irvine, Calif.).

Bethany (11-4) got a run back in the top of the fifth on a sacrifice fly
out to regain a 3-2 advantage.

The GU Bison answered with a RBI single by sophomore Darren Drolsbaugh
(Lansdale, Pa.) to tie the game for a second time.

Gallaudet broke open the game in the bottom of the seventh as the Bethany
defense committed three errors to allow the GU Bison to score five times
on two hits. Senior Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.) and junior Gilwon Seo
(Hongseong, South Korea) had RBI singles in the five-run inning.

Bethany answered with a six-run eighth as Gallaudet’s pitching gave out.
The GU Bison walked four batters, twice with the bases loaded, before
Bethany put together three hits off Upton (0-1) including a RBI triple to
tie the game at 8-8 and a RBI single by Jake Stemmeric to score the
eventual game-winning run.

Upton took the loss as he allowed the game-winning run to score in two
innings of relief work. Freshman Josh Dugan (San Antonio, Texas) started
the game and threw into the eighth inning before being lifted for
Drolsbaugh, who faced three batters and allowed three runs on one hit and
two walks.

Bethany’s Neil Woods (1-0) got the win with 2.2 innings tossed to close
out the game.

curling sign language

part of newspaper story

In such an auditory sport where players are guided by commands barked
loudly by the skip, deaf curlers rely on hand signals. Sweepers also work
in pairs so one can keep an eye on the signals being relayed from the
shot-taker. It can be a delicate dance as they have to be especially
vigilant that they dont accidentally knock the rock with their brooms or
feet while stealing a glance.

Deaf curlers also have to be wary opposing teams dont catch them signing
strategy, so some develop coded gestures not unlike a third-base coach in
baseball gives instruction to a baserunner across the diamond with a
seemingly random pattern of arm and hand motions.

Bison sweep Southern Vermont for the first and final time

FORT MYERS, Fla. – It was a bittersweet day for the Gallaudet University
baseball team here Thursday as it swept Southern Vermont College, 9-8 and
9-7, in a non-conference doubleheader at the Lee County Player Development
Complex. The wins were the first and last for the Bison against Southern
Vermont, who will shut down its school at the end of this semester due to
financial hardship. Gallaudet (7-11) entered today’s doubleheader 0-4
all-time against the Mountaineers (3-6-1).

note:
always sad when an opposing college closes doors due to financial
reasons. It happened to Mt Ida two years ago, an opponent in
Gallaudet’s Eastern Collegiate Football Conference

random deafsports thoughts

There was a story in today’s newspapers about deaf students
at hearing colleges struggling to find classroom interpreters
at the last minute.

For quite a few deaf athletes that play on hearing college
teams, a big consideration is the availablilty of interpreters
at these hearing colleges.

For one football players he chose one NCAA-I college over
another NCAA-I college for that reason. It was a choice
between sitting on the bench and getting interpeters
easily as opposed to playing a lot and struggling with
interpreters.

Needless to say, he sat on the bench four full seasons,
rarely playing at all!
