School records fall as Gallaudet competes at Hopkins/Loyola Invitational

BALTIMORE – The Gallaudet University men’s track and field team placed
fifth at the Hopkins/Loyola Track & Field Invitational here Friday hosted
by Johns Hopkins University and Loyola (Md.) University on the Hopkins

Bloomfield University won the 14-team meet with 138.5 points followed by
the host Blue Jays from Johns Hopkins University (131.5), Stevenson
University (102), University of Mary Washington (91) and Gallaudet (59).

Freshman Eric Gregory (Metairie, La.) won the 100- and 200-meter dash
events with times of 10.75 and 21.56 seconds, respectively. His time in
the 200-meter dash is a new school record as he improves on his personal
best time of 21.74, which was the school record that was set two weeks
ago.

Gregory was also part of GU’s 4×100 meter relay team that shattered a
30-year-old school mark. Senior Montray Roberts (Dallas, Texas), Gregory,
senior Toraneau Varice (Pompano Beach, Fla.) and freshman Brady Perry
(Washington, D.C.) finished third overall with a time of 42.59.

The old school record was 42.86 set by Rohan Smith, Michael Cross, Jr.,
Eric Roberts and Phillip Nojoku set the mark on April 29, 1989 at the
Millersville Invitational in Millersville, Pa.

a time of 15.14. Senior Gunner Hahn (Delavan, Wis.) was right behind in
sixth place (16.03).

A sad newspaper header

part of a newspaper header

What’s the future of the School for the Deaf property in Sioux Falls?

Part of the South Dakota School for the Deaf property is an underutilized
football field and track now mostly only used when it’s mowed.

note:
The school’s last boys’ basketball team was in the
1985-86 season.

The school dropped its 6-man football team, not sure of
the year but must be in the fifties

The school dropped its track team sometime in the late
seventies.

The school continues to exist as a statewide resource
center on education of the deaf, but not as a stand-alone
school

What is the role of Deaf Basketball Camps?

Is it to teach ALL campers how to play basketball
better?

or

Is it for the Camp management to pick the best
players among the campers to form an all-camp
team to play games against other hearing basketball
camps? And to ignore the basketball needs of
lesser-talented deaf campers?

This was the accusation several angry deaf schools basketball
coaches shared with DeafDigest Sports editor.

Needless to say, the DeafDigest Sports editor was
shocked.
