American basketball

Boys and Girls Varsity Basketball teams took the court tonight for the
last time in the 2018-19 Basketball Season against Faith Preparatory
School.
Before each game we honored our Senior basketball players as they suited
up for the final time.

Girls opened play in a tough and physical match up. The Tigers took a
quick lead before seeing it slip away at the end of the first quarter. In
the second quarter
Faith Prep used a 7-0 run to take a commanding 15-6 lead in the game
before the Tigers battled back. Second half featured heavy back and forth
with highly physical
play that saw the coach from Faith Prep get tossed with a double
technical. The Bulldogs held on to win 20-31 over the Tigers. Sophomore
Jatara Page scored 12
points, 2 assists, 5 rebounds and 4 steals. Senior Emily Pagan scored 8
points, 2 assists, 4 rebounds, and 3 blocks.

Boys took on the Bulldogs next and fell behind quickly in the first
quarter 7-16 as the Tigers were not able to find the basket early on. In
the second quarter the
Tigers locked in offensively playing a complete game outscoring the
Bulldogs 23-10 to take a 30-26 lead into halftime. Third quarter featured
both teams battling it
out defensively. In the fourth period the Bulldogs took a 1 point lead
with less than 1:15 to play. Tigers responded by drawing a foul with just
under a minute to
play and sinking both free throws to take a 50-49 lead. Both teams had
turnovers in the final minute and the Tigers held on as a Bulldog shot
kissed the rim and
fell off. Dylan Mallach and Omar Sharif scored 15 points each, Joshua
Robinson. scored 7 points, snagged 6 rebounds. Jey Cruz-Cotto. scored 4
points and locked down
6 steals.

contest into halftime tied at 25.

random deafsports thoughts

a friend made a joke that coach Klingensmith should
have fired DeafDigest Sports editor as football
team manager during the 1965 season. According to
a tale yesterday in this column, the manager
forgot to bring the bag of practice footballs
prior to the away game with Delaware Valley
College.

Yes, Klingensmith was very angry. But when he
was hired in the spring of 1965 to coach the
football team, no one on the Gallaudet campus
reached out to him to help with the football
logistics – except for one person – the
DeafDigest Sports editor. Throughout the
spring and summer months Klingensmith and
the team manager corresponded a lot, discussing
these football issues and matters.

So, should Klingensmith have fired the manager?

He didn’t.
