part of newspaper story

IHSAA sectional realignment

In Class A, Sheridan and Lutheran will share Sectional 46 with Anderson
Prep, Covenant Christian, Edinburgh, Indiana Deaf, Park Tudor and Tindley.

note:
good or bad for Indiana football? Don’t know!

But the newspaper story said it is a noteworthy
change.

Keep in mind all member high schools enter the
state playoffs regardless of their won/lost
records. The last scheduled game of the season
is always reserved for a playoff game.

Taylor Mowery

softball

Siena Heights University (Michigan – NAIA)

played all 46 of her team’s 46 games

hit .274 (26 of 95)

no real power; just singles hitter

what is strange is while she was one of the few players
to have played all 46 games she only had 95 official at bats)
whereas other players had these 140-150 at bats.

Did the coach only use her for parts of these many games,
thus reducing her numeber of official at bats. She only
ahd 12 walks which do not count as an official at bat.

random deafsports thoughts

St Joesph School for the Deaf (Bronx, NY) closed up
for good in 1950. This school played sports against
other deaf schools (football, basketball, etc).

Yet, there are continuing tweets. Example is this one:

The Holy Cross Varsity Baseball Team will travel to the
Bronx to take on St. Raymond’s @ 4 pm @ St Joesph School
for the Deaf.

It is quite complicated. The deaf school, in the past,
was split into two campuses, divided by a busy
highway. On one side of the highway is the current
St Joseph’s campus (K-8) and on the other side
the old St Joseph’s building and grounds (9-12).

That old grounds has been constantly used for high
school sports (hearing) and there are always
references to St Joesph School for the Deaf.

Ghosts from the past, or just need for enough playing
fields for all sports in New York City?

Gallaudet’s Cameron Upton plays final home game on Senior Day as Bison fall to Penn College

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University baseball team honored senior Cameron
Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.) and his family before the start of Sunday’s
conference game with Penn College at Hoy Field. Upton, Gallaudet’s
all-time hits leader, played his final home collegiate game going 3-for-5,
scored one run and drove in one run. GU dropped the third and final North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) game to the Wildcats, 20-6, as the
visitors swept the weekend series.

GU scored one run in the first inning, three runs in the third and two
runs in sixth. The Bison fell behind 7-0 in the top of the first and
trailed 9-1 heading into the bottom of the third inning. Gallaudet cut the
margin to five runs, 9-4, with the three runs in the third and had the
chance to add more as the Bison left the bases loaded.

Penn College (11-19, 8-6 NEAC) tacked on another six runs before the Bison
(9-27, 2-13 NEAC) scored in the bottom of the sixth. The Wildcats tallied
another five runs over the course of the final two innings to end the game
up 14.

Three different Bison had hits in the game led by Upton’s three singles.

Sophomore Darren Drolsbaugh (Lansdale, Pa.) took the loss as he started on
the mound and allowed nine runs on 11 hits, walked four and struck out two
in 2.2 innings pitched.

Note:
Cameron Upton will definitely be missed. If he is not the
best baseball player in Gallaudet baseball history, he
definitely ranks among top 5 all-time baseball greats.

Billy Bissell, William Chapman, Casey Hicks,

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. – The Gallaudet University women’s track and field team
competed at the Paul Kaiser Classic here Saturday as two Bison

records were set. There were no team scores kept for this crowded meet.

Freshman Hannah Wetzel (Fremont, Calif.) cleared 1.58 meters (5 feet, 2.25
inches) in the high jump Saturday afternoon to set a new school record.
Wetzel previously cleared 1.55 meters, last month at the Seahawk Track &
Field Invitational in Wilmington, N.C., to tie the school record with
Stephanie Hamilton, who set her mark on April 12, 1978, at the Tri-Meet in
Frostburg, Md. Now, Wetzel owns the school record all to herself. She
finished tied for seventh in the overall high jump standings on Saturday.

Senior Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) now owns the pole vault school record
to herself as she cleared 2.55 meters (8 feet, 4.25 inches). Shysh and
freshman Krista Kachnik (Henderson, Nev.) were tied at 2.45 meters after
they set that two weeks ago at the Hopkins/Loyola Invitational. Shysh tied
for 16th place in the pole vault competition on Saturday among a field of
23 that recorded a height.

Zacarias throws back-to-back complete-game victories for Bison in season finale

LANCASTER, Pa. – The Gallaudet University softball team completed the 2019
season on a high note as the Bison defeated Lancaster Bible College in a
North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) doubleheader on the road
Wednesday. The Bison (12-20, 4-14 NEAC) took the first game 5-1 and the
second game 4-0 over the Chargers (11-23, 5-13 NEAC).

GU snapped its eight-game losing streak and swept LBC for the second year
in a row.

Game 1: Gallaudet 5, Lancaster Bible 1
The host Chargers jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the second inning and
held that one-run advantage until the fourth inning.

Gallaudet got on the scoreboard with five runs on two hits and several
errors by the Chargers in the fourth.

Sophomore Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) led the Bison offense with three
hits.

Senior pitcher Jacklyn Zacarias (Montebello, Calif.) struck out a
career-high 11 batters in a complete game victory. Zacarias (7-10) allowed
one run on four hits and walked none.

Game 2: Gallaudet 4, Lancaster Bible 0
Zacarias picked up where she left off with a second straight complete game
performance in the circle for the Bison. She tossed a seven-inning shutout
and struck out seven additional batters to complete her season 8-10 for
the Bison.

Freshman Kendall Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) was one of three Bison with
two hits but her two hits were extra-base hits. Hudson had a RBI double in
the three-run third inning and added a lead-off triple and scored on an
error in the fifth inning.

The Marilyn Sepulveda Meet of Champions has always had one overriding
theme: Its all about the quality of the athlete, not the size of their
school.

The 28th annual Sepulveda begins this afternoon at the University of New
Mexico track and field complex. The meet has become a bit of a rite of
passage as boys and girls from the states smallest schools are presented
with a chance to topple their peers in the largest classes.

Of course, a good number of Class 5As premier athletes will be in
attendance today, as field events begin at 3 p.m., followed by track
finals at 4:15 p.m.

And, while there arent many elite athletes from the smallest classes
listed on the heat sheets, there will still be a few  from tiny towns such
as Logan and Texico and Capitan and Fort Sumner. Not to mention the
presence of 6-foot-10 Deven Thompson of the New Mexico School for the Deaf
in Santa Fe, who is entered in the shot put.

Bison win nine events en route to capturing Gallaudet University
Invitational

WASHINGTON – The Bison men’s track and field team won the 2019 Gallaudet
University Invitational on a sunny Saturday at Thomas O. Berg Track in the
nation’s capital. The Bison compiled 209 team points to win going away as
they defeated University of Mary Washington (132), Goucher College (35)
and Medgar Evers College (31).

Gallaudet won nine of the 18 events in the lone home meet for the Bison
this season.

Freshman Eric Gregory (Metairie, La.) won the 100- and 200-meter dash
events with times of 10.87 and 21.39 seconds, respectively. Gregory’s time
in the 200-meter dash improves his school record mark in that event. His
previous best time was 21.56 set last week at the Hopkins/Loyola

(15.80) and was second in the 400-meter dash (53.23). Fellow senior
Montray Roberts (Dallas, Texas) was third in the 400-meter dash (53.49).

Senior Gunner Hahn (Delvan, Wis.) won the 400-meter hurdles (1:00.61) and

Junior Dalton Attanasi (Hammonton, N.J.) took first in the 5,000-meter run
(22:38.94) followed by freshman Yazeed Al-Khatib (Bronx, N.Y.) with a time
of 24:29.88. Al-Khatib won the 3,000-meter run (12:37.27) as he ran
unopposed.

In the field events, freshman Liam Painter (Edgewood, N.M.) won the pole
vault as he cleared 2.99 meters.

Junior Jamal Garner (Jacksonville, Ill.) was second in the high jump as he
cleared 1.75 meters and placed second in the shot put (12.57 meters) and
third in the discus (38.70 meters).

Gallaudet dominated the jumping events and pole vault as the Bison won all
four events. Freshman Hannah Wetzel (Fremont, Calif.) led the way with
wins in the high jump (1.50 meters), long jump (5.22 meters) and improved
her own school record in the triple jump (11.13 meters). Her old mark of
10.31 meters was set last month at the Jim Taylor Invitational. Junior
Jakkisha Smith (Dallas, Texas) was second in the triple jump with a top
jump of 10.44 meters.

Senior Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) shined on Senior Day as she won the
pole vault as she cleared 2.39 meters while freshman Krista Kachnik
(Henderson, Nev.) was second with a top mark of 2.24 meters.

Sophomore Sabrina Hernandez (Ashland, Va.) finished second in the javelin
with a top throw of 25.20 meters.

Gallaudet baseball

Gallaudet wins first NEAC games of the season, Upton sets new hits record

COBLESKILL, N.Y. – Gallaudet University picked up its first two North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) wins of the season here Friday with
wins over SUNY Cobleskill. Gallaudet (9-23, 2-9 NEAC) scored two runs in
the eighth inning to defeat the Fighting Tigers (11-15, 6-5 NEAC) in the
first game, 5-3. In the second game, GU scored five times in the seventh
en route to a 7-4 win.

In the top of the third inning of the first game, senior Cameron Upton
(Vicksburg, Miss.) singled to set the new program record for career hits.
Upton surpasses William Bissell (2010-14), who had 206 career hits.

Game 1: Gallaudet 5, SUNY Cobleskill 3 (F/8)
GU trailed early in the first game before the buff and blue took a 3-2
lead in the top of the sixth inning. Sophomore Darren Drolsbaugh
(Lansdale, Pa.) singled home freshman Josh Dugan (San Antonio, Texas), who
walked and advanced on a wild pitch and sacrifice bunt.

The Bison were two outs away from closing out the first game in seven
innings but the Fighting Tigers tied it up on a RBI single by Eddy Garcia.
SUNY Cobleskill loaded the bases with two outs but a ground out ended the
inning as the game went to extra frames.

In the top of the eighth, Gallaudet scored two times to take back the lead
and eventually earn its first conference win of the season

Game 2: Gallaudet 7, SUNY Cobleskill 4
In the second game, GU struck first with a run in the first inning before
the teams traded runs, leads and broke one tie.

The Fighting Tigers plated two runs in the bottom of the fifth off
Drolsbaugh (2-2), GU’s starting pitcher, to take a 4-2 lead.

That two-run lead stood until the seventh inning when Gallaudet scored
five times to regain the lead for good. GU scored five runs on four hits
and took advantage of three Fighting Tigers’ errors in the field along
with one balk, one wild pitch and one passed ball.

GU had four different batters with two or more hits, led by Altman’s
3-for-5 performance with a double. The top five batters in Gallaudet’s
line-up scored at least one run and recorded at least one hit.

note:
these two wins were big wins. Not only these were conference wins
but it brings Gallaudet to 9 wins so far this season. Just one more
win would bring Gallaudet into a double-digit win season. Past four
seasons Gallaudet won 9, 9, 9 and 8 games respectively.

baseball or track at a deaf school

Years ago, DeafDigest Sports editor had a discussion with
a coach at a deaf school on which sport is better –
baseball or track.

The coach said that in baseball, you need 9 starters plus
at least 2 or 3 subs. In track, you would need sprinters,
middle distance runners, long distance runners, weight
throwers and jumpers – which would mean at least 15-20
tracksters.

Yes, times have changed. Less tracksters means less
events to participate.

Hollis later rounded out his athletic resume with a year-long boxing
stint, winning 20 straight bouts to qualify for the Toughman Contest. The
lightweight advanced all the way to the final and was one round away from
taking the state title when the top-seeded fighter, who was deaf, didn’t
hear the second-round bell and got in a punch after Hollis had dropped his
gloves. The blow opened up Hollis’s eye and, despite the underdog’s pleas,
forced the referee to call the fight.

note:
this fight took place in Alabama in the late seventies. Do not know
who that deaf fighter was but he was the state champion, even if
fans thought he didn’t deserve it.

Old restaurant; new restaurant

Last night the Gallaudet men’s basketball team had its
end-of-season awards dinner at the new restaurant – Union
District Oystar Bar & Lounge. It is located a block away
from the Gallaudet campus. DeafDigest Sports editor was a guest.

Four employees at that restaurant are deaf; a couple of them
were past Gallaudet athletes.

That new restaurant was previously Gusti’s (G & G as renamed
later). It was a popular weekend hangout for Gallaudet
students that craved pizzas and Italian food.

Anyway Gusti’s was the sponsor of the Gallaudet club
hockey team during the late sixties and early seventies,
providing the team with uniforms and league entry
fees. That team, loaded with hockey-playing Canadian
students, won a conference championship one season.

So, the old restaurant helped sponsor the Gallaudet
hockey team.

And the new restaurant providing employment to past Gallaudet
athletes.

Nice to know the restaurant’s links to Gallaudet athletics.

Coach witnessed Ky’Ren broke one MSD alumni student, Calen Kempf’s Discus
record that held since 2011. Congratulations to Ky’Ren.  Keep running!! We
were worried about the rain all day, but it fired up out Tartars! They
continue to get better each meet and today was no exception. We had one
athlete break a school record! Which naturally was followed by a happy
dance! I also want to shout out to our fans that follow us to each meet.
After a long hard day it’s always nice to get a hug from (Chloe’s)
grandma!

Next track meet will be on Tuesday April 23 at New Lothrop.

part of a posting

Huge congratulations go out to both Graham Bodnar and Matthew Fey, two
Manitobans on the Canadian National Deaf Basketball Team on their historic
championship win at the USA Deaf Basketball National Championships in
Indianapolis, Indiana.

Team Canada won the National Championship (Division 2) by beating
Philadelphia, Kentucky, Illinois, and Florida.  Graham was named the
Tournament MVP.

This marks the first time a Canadian team has won a Gold Medal (or any
medal) at this event.

Both Graham and Matt were identified for the team at the 2018 Canada Deaf
Games that were played in Winnipeg that featured 3×3 basketball.

Ramona was also an accomplished athlete. From the ages of 30 to age 52,
she was a softball pitcher in the Womens Softball League. She could always
be counted on to hit a very needed home run. Ramona was a teammate with
her two daughters, Roberta Breshears Frigon and Jacqueline Nahrgang;
sister Penny Jensen-Haynes; and daughter-in-law, Marilyn Breshears. Ramona
received many softball awards including State MVP as a pitcher. Other
teams would taunt her pitching, not knowing she was deaf.

note:
she graduated from Montana School for the Deaf and Blind

Bison drop season series with Keuka

WASHINGTON – Gallaudet University’s baseball dropped the third and final
game of its season-series with Keuka College here Sunday afternoon at an
overcast and blustery Hoy Field. The visiting Wolves won 17-6 over the
Bison.

Gallaudet (7-22, 0-9 NEAC) scored six runs on 11 hits as the Bison plated
runs in the fourth, fifth and nine innings.

Senior Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.) led the way at the plate going
3-for-5 with two runs scored and one RBI.

200th career hit

WASHINGTON – It was a milestone day for Gallaudet University senior
Cameron Upton (Vicksburg, Miss.), who collected his 200th career hit, with
his second hit in the first game of Saturday’s game with Keuka College.
The visiting Wolves (10-13, 5-3 NEAC) went on to win the North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) doubleheader over the Bison (7-21, 0-8 NEAC)
with a 5-0 win in the first game and a 9-3 nine-inning win in the second
game.

Game 1: Keuka 5, Gallaudet 0
In the bottom of the sixth inning, Upton singled to right field with one

Emma Meesseman

Washington Mystics

Emma, who is 6’5 tall and is from Belgium, is deaf
but functions as a hearing person. She took time out
from WNBA last season to recuperate from the rigors
of back to back pro seasons (Europe then WNBA then
back to Europe).

She is supposed to report to the Washington Mystics
pre-season training camp. But the buzz among
followers of WNBA is that she may, again, stay
home in Europe!

random deafsports thoughts

Speaking of Old Dominion University (see above), it was
a member of the Mason-Dixon Conference in the sixties,
that Gallaudet belonged to.

Fans hated the university because it was new and huge
and won many conference contests in all sports.

In wrestling, Gallaudet’s Phil Aiello faced the Old
Dominion wrestler in the semi finals. The fans booed
Old Dominion and cheered the Gallaudet wrestler.

In a shocking upset, the Gallaudet wrestler won and
reached the finals while the fans erupted in cheers
(hearing fans, not deaf fans).

The Gallaudet wrestler did not win the finals, but for
him, it was something to remember – a standing room
only ovation, only because he defeated a hated
opponent!
