Tonight wasn’t pretty, at all.  Christ’s Church is ranked 80th in state
and we are ranked 508th. They were just the better team, by far.  The
first game, the girls barely played.  However, the 2nd and 3rd set there
were some good rallies that took place.  The girls never gave up.
Christ’s Church is a part of our District, which is why we played them.

Our next game is our Dig Pink game against Eagle’s View on Monday,

random deafsports talk

Can deaf sports in old days be compared to deaf sports
nowadays?

Don’t know. In the old days high school eligibility
rules were lax, meaning 20 year old and 21 year old
men could compete against 14 year old and 15 year
old boys.

Unfair? Yes, but that was what high school sports
was all about in these days.

Not any more – meaning sort of a level playing
field for all.

Gallaudet football
Bison lose close game to Greensboro, 27-25

WASHINGTON – Junior quarterback Timel Benton (Columbia, S.C.) threw for a
career best three touchdowns but it wasn’t enough to lift Gallaudet
University past Greensboro College on a hot and steamy Saturday at
Hotchkiss Field before 422 fans. GU missed three point after attempts and
that was the difference in the game where the Pride eked out a 27-25 win.

Gallaudet (0-3) outscored Greensboro (1-2) in the second half, 19-13,
after the Bison trailed 14-6 at the half.

The Bison scored touchdowns on three of their first four possessions in
the second half.

women’s soccer
Bison and Lions play to 1-1 tie in double overtime

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – The Gallaudet University women’s soccer team scored in
the opening 33 seconds here Saturday to surprise Penn State Harrisburg and
take an early 1-0 lead. A lead that lasted until the 78th minute when the
Lions knotted the game up and forced overtime. The two teams battled
through two overtime periods before the game ended in a 1-1 tie at Nittany
Soccer Field.

Gallaudet (2-5-1, 0-3-1 NEAC) got on the scoreboard when sophomore Hannah
Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) sent in a cross to freshman Courtney Gentzke
(Honeoye, N.Y.) who knocked in the ball into the goal. That is Gentzke’s
fourth goal of the season.

men’s soccer
Bison left seeing red against Penn State Harrisburg

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – In a physical and foul-laden North Eastern Athletic
Conference (NEAC) men’s soccer match, Penn State Harrisburg shut out

warm morning at the Kernstown Battlefield at the Hornet Harrier hosted by
Shenandoah University.

The Bison finished 20th out of 20 teams with 599 team points.

Sophomore Jared Spinale (Camby, Ind.) was the first Bison to cross

Florida football

newspaper story

FSDB football improves to 3-0

FSDB 24, Harvest Community 22

The Dragons (3-0) remained undefeated after a missed field goal late in
the fourth quarter helped them top visiting Harvest Community School on
Thursday night at Usina Field.

Harvest (2-2) recovered a first-quarter fumble from the Dragons and
returned it for a touchdown.

FSDB responded to trailing for the first time this season with 18
unanswered points.

Luis Merced ran four a 4-yard touchdown and followed with a 25-yard romp
later in the first quarter. Walter Douglas (17 carries, 187 yards) ran for
a 48-yard touchdown to gif the Dragons an 18-7 lead in the second quarter.

Merced carried 12 times for 99 yards and quarterback Matthew Guilliou ran
10 times for 27 yards and a touchdown. Guilliou found his brother Marcus
for a 16-yard completion, FSDB’s only completed pass of the night.

Matthew Guilliou led the Dragons defense with 12 tackles, Marcus recorded
nine tackles, with a sack and two tackles for loss. Merced recovered a
fumble, as did Douglas.

FSDB will host Kissimmee City of Life Christian (3-0) on Thursday night.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.

note:
this win is huge; Florida was winless past two seasons in 11 man
football before switching to 8 man this season

Fremont football

part of newspaper story

California School for the Deaf (3-2) has been a strong program throughout
the decade, lately led by running back Calel Aramboles. The 5-foot-11,
233-pound senior gashed the Washington defense on Friday, reaching the end
zone on five of his nine carries and racking up 189 yards.

CSD quarterback Miles Gonzalez connected on 10 of his 17 passes for 116
yards and a touchdown, getting sacked just once, and Leonardo Vergara had
three catches for 66 yards, all in the second half. Vergara also closed
the game with a 45-yard pick six, with CSD letting the running clock
expire instead of kicking an extra point as a sign of sportsmanship.

The CSD defense kept Washington (0-3) off the board thanks largely to
Robert Gregor, who had a sack on fourth down and a recovery of a fumble
that Levi Biser forced. Jaylen Johnson returned a punt 70 yards for a
score to make it 22-0 early in the second quarter as the visitors
dominated nearly every facet of the game.

Gallaudet volleyball

GU splits its matches on first day of the Worthington Classic

WASHINGTON – The 13th annual Worthington Classic got underway here Friday
in the Field House as Gallaudet University played host to seven visiting
teams. The host Bison split its two matches it played on the opening day
of the two-day tournament.

Gallaudet (4-14, 1-2 NEAC) won its opening match against North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) foe Penn St.-Abington (6-12) as the Bison won
in straight sets; 25-16, 25-14, 25-18. The match counts as a conference
game as GU picks up its first NEAC win of the season while Abington drops
to 1-2 in the conference.

In the nightcap, Gallaudet went toe-to-toe with SUNY Cortland before the
Bison fell in four sets; 21-25, 25-18, 23-25, 21-25. GU almost won the
third set, which would of shifted the momentum in favor of the buff and
blue but the visiting Red Dragons (16-5) held off the fast-charging Bison.

Who was the last team to defeat Maryland in football
before that school embarked on a long winning
streak against deaf schools over many seasons?

Answer:
Alabama School for the Deaf

Since that defeat, Maryland was unbeaten – prior
to last night’s game. DeafDigest Sports editor
doesn’t remember the year that Alabama won.
Must do research!

All winning streaks, in all sports, eventually
come to an end. Doesn’t matter if it is
Hearing Sports or Deaf Sports.

Rhode Island soccer

Rhode Island School for the Deaf’s soccer team played host to Friends
Academy for a 8v8 soccer game on a nice Tuesday afternoon. Our coaches
were looking for improvements from our team from the last two games as
signs of progress as we continually strive to get better in preparations
for the ESDAA Division II Soccer Tournament at NYSSD-Rome next month.

Friends was able to get a nice goal about 10 minutes into the game on a
nice lob over our goaltender, who was playing a little aggressive. Our
star forward Jayden E. was able to knot the game up a few minutes later on
a nice goal. Friends Academy responded with another goal shortly
afterwards, followed by Jayden’s second goal. Friends Academy played very
well with their passing game as no player held on to the ball for too
long, keeping our defense on the move all game long. The first half ended
with a score of 4-2 in Friends Academy favor.

Our coaches provided feedback and tips to our team in hopes of putting
together a better second half. We came out with energy – both teams would
trade goals early on on the second half to bring the score up to 5-3 with
Jayden recording his second hat trick of this season. Our team, just 9
player strong, started to show signs of fatigue, especially on defense as
Friends Academy’s passes opened up more scoring opportunities for their
forwards and the game ended in a 9-3 win for Friends Academy.

Rochester soccer

On Wednesday afternoon we travelled the I-90 to take on our rival, St.
Mary’s School for the Deaf (SMSD) in what would go down as an incredible
match
between two highly talented teams in the ESDAA as both were in the
Championship Game last year. Who would win bragging rights this year? The
up and
coming Bisons or would the Wildcats continue on with their ongoing
I-90 winning streak?
This is why we play the game. The only true way to find out. It was a
beautiful day for some fall ball, the sun was shining, the temperature was
cool, and the
bleachers were at capacity with standing room only. We were at full force
and ready to see what we were made of in our first true game of the
season. No
better way to start off than to play the #1 seeded Bisons for the upcoming
ESDAA Tournament.

As the players took to the field, they understood the magnitude of this
match and what it means to the entire RSD Community. There was a lot at
stake for this
first game of the season, but our student-athletes were poised and ready
to battle.

GAME ON! SMSD came out aggressive, with a few of their new recruits
impressing the Wildcat coaching staff. We were very well aware of a couple
of their
veterans, but some of their younger talent surprised us a bit. Before you
know it, we’re down 0-1 in front of a rambunctious home crowd. Do not fret
as this
was exactly how last year’s championship game went and we all know how
that ended.

Just four minutes later, SMSD made another spectacular play and scored
again to take a dominating 2-0 lead. Could this be the end of a dynasty?
Was there a
new sheriff in town? C’MON PEOPLE!!!! You know who we are! We are
WILDCATS! We don’t back down from a challenge, we don’t give up, we
persevere, we fight
tooth and nail til the bitter end. Why? Because We are WILDCATS! Down 0-2,
we were now fired up and we weren’t going to go without a fight.

Our midfield was finally stepping up, playing both sides of the field,
making solid passes, but SMSD defense was tough, preventing us from
getting any shots
on goal. We were starting to get frustrated. Approaching the end of the
first half, it looked like we were going to be down 0-2, and looking to
make some
serious adjustments at halftime.

However, with time dwindling down, a little scurry erupted at the endline
on their side of the field that resulted in a penalty kick in our favor.
Exactly the
kind of break we needed going into half-time. We put our trust and
confidence in our very own Bode Aggas to get us on the board. He lines up
the shot,
approaches the ball, shoots, DEFLECTED…
SMSD’s goalie makes contact…..but deflected back into the goal!!!!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOL. Still down 1-2, but momentum was now on our side. With
only two minutes
left to go, we were quite satisfied with where we’re at with this game,
considering everything that has transpired this first half.

With a quick steal, and time dwindling down in the first half, Alexander
Michalek took it upon himself to make one last crack of trying to do the
impossible….with Coach Lipitz yelling to shoot the ball as the ref
counted down from 5……4……3……..2……Michalek gets off a toe
kick just past
the center line…..no way……..it’s floating, it may have a
chance…….it’s still going……..its passed all the defenders….still
in the
air….drifting….moving erratically in the air……can it
be……..still going…….approaching the goal……on
target………say it ain’t so…..IT
JUST SNUCK PAST THE GOALIE’S HAND….we’re at 2-2 at HALFTIME!!!!!
Michalek ties the game for RSD!!!!!!! RSD fans go nuts!!!! Jaws drop to
the floor, and
we’re back in this game!

During halftime, the coaching staff kept encouraging RSD to take shots on
their young goalie and to continue to test him. With a small field , you
can take
shots deeper than your standard field. We don’t need to be inside the 18′
to score, we can score from outside [WAY OUTSIDE]. We have the talent and
skill to
do so. Believe in yourself, in your teammates, and take it from the
coaching staff, if you keep firing, they will eventually find the back of
the net.

As our players left to the field, the coaching staff had a great feeling
about this game. With momentum on our side, and SMSD looking a little
deflated, we
knew we had to capitalize early in the half if we wanted to put this game
away. 6 minutes into the second half, Bode Aggas does just that and takes
a shot
outside the 18′ and RSD takes their first lead of the game. From there, we
went on to dominate the second half and control the entire second half
with Radez
earning a half-bagel (allowing no goals in the second half), winning 5-2!

Bode Aggas earned a hat trick and Michalek also piled on one more goal for
RSD. It was a great team effort against a very talented Bisons team. We’re
fully
aware they weren’t at full strength, and we will not overlook this fact
and we look forward to seeing them again at the ESDAA Tournament. We tip
our hats to
the gracious hosts, but leave Buffalo with our heads up high as we now
focus on WPSD for our first homecoming game and our “second” game of the
season!

What….a……game! Thank you to all the fans that made the trek to see
this epic game. We hope to pack the stands this weekend, as we’re going to
need all
the excitement and energy from our “12th man!” First game at 3:30 against
WPSD!!!! LET’S GO ROCHESTER!!!!

St Mary’s soccer

The Bisons soccer team had their home opener this afternoon against their
thruway I 90 rival, the Wildcats from Rochester School for the Deaf.  This
week we all
celebrate deaf awareness week, which made this match even more special for
both schools and their fans! The Bisons were looking to improve on their
play from their
game last week. We started the game fast scoring the first 2 goals. Farhad
Gorbani & Nick Barrus were able to offer up beautiful assists to Ethan
Antone who
capitalized on both shots giving us the lead. Despite some steady play by
keeper Saul Alvira, the Wildcats battled back and closed out the 1st half
with only
seconds remaining by getting the equalizer to knot the game 2-2. Although
the Bisons had their fair share of scoring opportunities in the second
half, it was RSD
that made their shots count and drove up the score to take control of the
contest and ultimately gain the victory 5-2. The Bisons don’t have much
time to dwell on
the loss because we’re right back at it today, in our first NFCAA matchup
against Chesterton. Continue to support our team as we look to get into
the win column.

Overall Record: 0-2

Individual Stats:

Saul Alvira: 5 saves

Ethan Antone: 2 goals(3rd & 4th of the season)

The Bisons soccer team played in their 2nd of back to back games
yesterday.  It was our first contest in our NFCAA 8v8 league.  In past
years, there has been parity
between  all of the teams and games are typically very competitive.  Our
match against the Chesterton Wildcats was no exception.  In the first
half, the Bisons team
looked a little sluggish having just played the night before.  Luckily,
our defense led by Isa Habeeb and Magdi Mohammed were able to keep our
opponents in check
while our mid-field and strikers “found their legs”.  The score at
halftime was only 1-0 in favor of Chesterton.  We discussed that the
deficit could be overcome if
we put in the necessary effort for the next 30 minutes.  That said, the
2nd half looked remarkably different than how we began the match.  The
Bisons were able to
raise their level of intensity and out-worked the Wildcats.  We were
rewarded with a goal by Farhad Ghorbani who has been knocking on the door
to score all season.
With the game being tied, both squads had their share of scoring
opportunities and exchanged the lead twice thanks to a goal from Michael
Norris who came in as
substitute off the bench.  It’s always nice to get some secondary level
scoring.  With the match tied at 2-2 and only 1 minute remaining on the
clock, Nick Barrus
was taken down in the box and he was awarded a penalty kick.
Unfortunately, he missed the shot wide left and play resumed.  With time
winding down, our opponents
put together one last attack that resulted in a great shot that Saul
Alvira could never have saved.  Now with :30 left in the match, the Bisons
attempted one final
comeback but it was too late.  We lost the contest 3-2.  Although
disappointed, the team responded well afterwards knowing that it was the
best half of soccer that
they’ve played so far this year.  Next week, we will be getting back a few
veterans who didn’t play this week and begin preparing for our next match
on October
3rdrd against CAWNY.  Please continue to come out and support your Bisons.

Thanks,

Coach Booke & Coach Leroy

The Lady Bisons took on the Rochester Wildcats yesterday in their third
game of the season. The girls struggled against Rochester’s strong servers
and quick plays
and fell in three straight sets. Julia Bronneberg had two aces while
Aleyshka Rivera had one at the serving line. Cami Cole had two strong
attacks and Elise Watson
and Aleyshka Rivera each chipped in one a piece. Hopefully the girls will
bring the fire back into their next game which happens today at 4:30 in an
attempt to pull
of their first win of the season.

The Lady Bisons took on the Global Charter Gators yesterday afternoon in a
late game. After a disappointing game the day before, the girls had a
little bit more to
prove and set out to do just that. Julia Bronneberg came out on top in all
three sets with an impressive 16 point, 9 aces, and 4 attacks at the net.
Emma Foster and
Kearah Kelly made some impressive saves and showed off their improved ball
handling skills throughout the whole game and racked up another 3 and 2
aces
respectively. Aleyshka Rivera continues to come out of her shell adding 6
points and 2 aces and some great assistance in the front. Cami Cole,
Brionna Zuppa and
Elise Watson chipped in on the floor and helped to achieve our first set
win of the season. We lost in 2 out of 3 sets but definitely showed that
we are here to
play. Our next two games will be away games next week. Please wish the
girls luck as we take our season on the road.

Bison sweep Christendom in straight sets

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s volleyball team picked up a
much needed win Tuesday night in the Field House as the Bison swept
Christendom College, 3-0, in a non-conference match.

Gallaudet (3-13) will take a two-match winning streak into this weekend’s
Worthington Classic.

The Bison dominated from the start as they made 17 kills in the first set
with a .432 attack percentage. Junior Elina Rubinshteyn (Austin, Texas)
recorded six of her match-high 15 kills in the first set. Junior Karita
Lewis (Frederick, Md.) served up three of her match-high five aces in the
first set.

In the second set, Gallaudet’s service game was clicking as the Bison
served up five aces with two coming from freshman Sunita Schmidjorg
(Austin, Texas). GU had another 12 kills and an attack percentage of .333.

In the third and final set, freshman Cassidy Perry (Frederick, Md.)
tallied four of her 10 kills. GU matched its first set total of 17 kills
(.359 attack percentage).

Gallaudet finished the match with a season best .379 attack percentage and
its first straight set win of the season.

Gallaudet will host the 13th annual Worthington Classic this
Friday-Saturday (Sept. 27-28) in the Field House. Eight teams will compete
in 16 matches during the two-day tournament. GU will go up against Penn
St.-Abington (5-10, 1-1 NEAC) and SUNY Cortland (15-3) at 2 and 8 p.m.,
respectively, on Frida

FSDB 30-0 Mississippi SD

Hello Dragon Fans!!  We continued our winning ways in our 2nd game
of the season.  After a long bus ride there and cheering our volleyball
team on to
victories, we managed to win the game over the reigning 8-man
national champions, Mississippi, 30-0.

Huge kudos to our defense for pitching a shutout.  We were a “bend, don’t
break” defense in this game as Mississippi had the advantage in time of
possession,
but could not find the end zone. We tallied 2 interceptions in this game
along with numerous quarterback hurries and pass deflections.

Once again, we couldn’t get off to a fast start with our offense as it was
0-0 after the 1st quarter.  Other than that, there was not much to
complain about
as we garnered 284 total yards on just 19 offensive plays.  Walter Douglas
ran for a team high 103 yards and 2 touchdowns with Matthew Guillou and
Luis Merced
putting in 94 and 60 yards respectively with a touchdown each.

We will be hosting Harvest Community (Jacksonville) at Usina Field this
Thursday 9/26 at 7pm.

part of newspaper story

San Jon/Grady held off host New Mexico School for the Deaf in a 76-74
shootout Saturday in six-man football action at Santa Fe.

The visiting Coyotes, which improved to 2-2, fell behind 14-0 in the first
quarter but rallied with three unanswered touchdowns and led 29-20 at
halftime.

San Jon led the rest of the way, except for a brief stretch in the third
quarter when they fell behind 34-29. The Coyotes sealed the game with a
touchdown with three minutes left for a 76-67 lead.

The game was a last-minute fill-in for the Coyotes’ schedule after
Roy-Mosquero canceled its season because of too few players.

comment from a fan on Meesseman

I had a chance to watch Meesseman help Mystics win the semifinals?

She came in second half and scored  18 points out of her 20 mostly on long
shooting!

She demonstrated great defense due to her height and maybe wingspan. She
didn’t talk much during a post game interview. Ellen Donne was standing
with her and did the most talking.

note:
Meesseman, a WNBA veteran, did not play for Mystics last season.

She was burned out by year around basketball – Washington Mystics,
European pro women’s basketball league and games/practices with
the Belgian (hearing) national women’s basketball team.

She asked to take a season off with the Mystics with the promise
that she would come back this season. She did, very refreshed and
anxious to help our the Mystics.

She is WNBA’s #1 6th player coming off the bench!

random deafsports talk

The deaf school is not being mentioned in this
story.

When deaf schools face manpower issues in
6-man football, volleyball and co-ed soccer,
then a player threatening to quit the team,
sends the team into a manpower crisis!

This is sad.

Wow…this weekend was a lot fun.  We participated in Mississippi’s
Homecoming activities including their Pep Rally, football game, and the
Homecoming Dance.  The girls really had a great time!  We started off
playing Atlanta Area School for the Deaf.  This is the first time in at
least 17 years that we have played them.  They only had six girls, so we
mixed up our rotation and let some of the girls play their “favorite”
positions that they don’t normally get to play.  Things were a little
crazy, but the girls learned how to play with their new positions on the
spot. We dug ourselves into a hole on a few occasions, but the girls
always bounced back and won in two sets: 18-25 and 23-25.

Our second match was against MSD.  Their middle blocker really gave us a
run for our money.  The girls had to figure out how to hit around the
block or make other plays happen.  Again, it wasn’t always pretty, but
they got the job done.  They won 25-22 and 25-21.

Western Pennsylvania was our third match.  This is another school that we
haven’t played in at least 17 years.  The girls played better this game,
but they struggled to maintain consistency.  That is something we have to
improve on in order to win more games throughout the rest of the season.
The girls won their third straight match: 25-17 and 25-16.  This placed
them into the Championship Game…after the football game!  Congrats to
the football players for their win against Mississippi!!

We faced Western Pennsylvania again after the Homecoming game.  The girls
were tired from travel, playing, and being out in the 90 degree weather
during the football game.  They won the first two sets 25-21 and 25-17 and
then things started to get sloppy.  We really struggled with consistency
and just playing basic volleyball.  WPSD was putting the first (or second)
ball over and waiting for us to mess up and it was working.  We lost the
third and fourth sets 21-25 and 17-25.  That brought us into the fifth
set.  WPSD kept playing the same type of strategy, but we worked through
our errors and the girls were able to pull out the win.  The final score
was 18-16.

It definitely wasn’t pretty at times and we have lots of work to do at
practice tomorrow.  But…the girls won the Championship Game!  We’re so
proud of them for never giving up and working through the struggles.  At
the end of the season, all four of these games go in the win column and we
are now 5-3!

Fremont sports

LAST WEEK –  Volleyball had a tough stretch dropping to California
Crosspoint and Fremont Christian but with sustained improvements, we know
that CSD will bounce
back and give all of the league teams a tough time in the playoffs.
Varsity football was on a bye week so we had just enough to muster our
first JV Football Game
in 4 years.  Only 12 boys suited up as the “Dirty Dozen” and we hosted
Elsie Allen who was formerly a Varsity team that reclassified just last
month.  Despite them
having over 30 players and multiple seniors, we didn’t make the usual JV
mistakes and dominated 44-6.

DEAF PREP XC –  The highlight of the week was when the Cross Country Teams
went to Oregon to play in the return of the National Deaf Prep Tournament.
CSD Girls won
the team Championship.  Jasmine Jimenez-Lara finished in 1st place out of
nine runners.  Amanda Vega and Katia Aguirre finished 2nd and 7th
respectively.  CSD Boys
finished in 2nd place behind champion Oregon School for the Deaf.
Leonardo Vergara was the best CSD boys performer as he finished 4th out of
25 runners.  Chris
Navarette finished 5th, Chris Renteria 8th, George Quirie 11th, and Raul
Quintero 17th.  This was a 3.1 mile course on campus against host Oregon
School for the
Deaf, California School for the Deaf Riverside, and Washington School for
the Deaf.  Congratulations to everyone!

THIS WEEK –  There are no home games this week.  Varsity Volleyball has an
away game to Contra Costa Christian and JV Volleyball has a light week
without a game.
Cross Country will head to Joaquin Miller Park in Oakland on Wednesday for
the first of three league meets.  Varsity Football and Cheerleading is
excited to return
to George Washington High School and play on the top 10 High School
Stadium in America

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK –

JASMINE JIMENEZ-LARA – Our Junior standout came to Oregon as the heavy
favorites to win the Deaf Prep Contest and she certainly did not
disappoint as she brought
home first place in individual and helped CSD Girls win the Championship.
Jasmine had a time of 24:57 and Amanda Vega was behind her at 25:23 but
then the next
finisher was at 27:29 and beyond!

JOHNTE HAGGINS – It has been a great stretch for our younger players in
football when CSD Varsity defeated Rancho San Juan the previous week where
the underclassmen
played defense the entire game.  Last week, we had our only JV Game of the
season and Johnte had one and half practice to learn a new position then
played
Runningback and Linebacker in the game and looked well beyond his years!

LAST WEEK –  The JV and Varsity Volleyball team beat Making Waves on
Tuesday then lost to Holy Names on Thursday.  Jalina Dietz saved a lot of
balls for the JV
girls and Chang May Tan made some great decisions in setting and
volleying.  On Varsity, senior Esther Biser packs a howitzer of an arm,
Kara Wolfangle is an ace
server, and the rest of the team is tall and it has shown to be difficult
for the opposition to make clean spikes.  The football team played a first
year program in
Rancho San Juan who replaced the now JV-level Elsie Allen (this Thursday),
it was the first time we played a team that had 73 players on their roster
and the boys
took my challenge of grinding it out without needing to use seniors on
defense at all and our younger players certainly stepped up via a 51-7
victory.  Cross
Country had their first meet last weekend, Leonardo Vergara, Chris
Renteria, and Jasmine Jimenez-Lara was among the standouts.

THIS WEEK –  The highlight of the week is our Cross Country Team heading
to Oregon for the Deaf National Prep Meet!  Varsity Football is on a bye
week and we will
have our only JV game this season against Elsie Allen at home with our
cheerleaders on Thursday.  The JV and Varsity Volleyball team goes to
Crosspoint on Tuesday
and hosts Fremont Christian on Thursday.  Good luck everyone!

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK –

REZA MOSHER, our Junior flyer is a team captain this year.  She has been
noticed by her commitment and loyalty.  She shows up every day with
enthusiasm and
continues to help other newer players.  This attitude has carried out to
her team and to all of the other teams.  Great job!

LEVI BISER, our Junior Outside Linebacker always plays with a high motor
but he still took a challenge from the coaching staff to make another leap
in his play this
week.  Levi ended up with 9 tackles and timed two outside passes
beautifully to cut right through for a pick-six, twice!  Congratulations.

Some schools have not been submitting
their volleyball results.

What this means is that when DeafDigest
Sports editor starts to collect nominations
for Volleyball All-American honors, these
non-responding schools will not be
given consideration.

This policy also applies to other
sports, but for now volleyball is
the central issue.

Thank you for bearing with DeafDigest

Rhode Island soccer

Our Roosters soccer team played host to Lexington School for the Deaf last
Saturday on our Homecoming Day — it was a beautiful sunny day for a
soccer game! After our youth soccer team played to a hot 3-3 tie against
American School for the Deaf, it was our varsity team’s turn to take the
field in front of a nice crowd.

Due to the hot weather and our lack of substitutes/some players joining
this week so they weren’t completely prepared to play a full game –
Lexington permitted us to borrow two of their players. One of the
Lexington-turned-Rhode Island player got our team off to a hot start as he
rang up two goals to give us a 2-0 lead early on. We tried to hold down
our defense, but Lexington’s attack finally cracked through our lines and
knotted the game up at 2-2. Lexington was able to add two more goals to
build a 4-2 halftime lead.

Our team was determined to eat into their lead – there was a quick flurry
of goals as Lexington put together a 7-3 lead. We decided to swap goalies
to give our younger goalie some in-game experience and our Roosters
continued to push on and was able to add two more goals before the game
was over, ending the score at 7-5 in Lexington’s favor.

Many thanks to Lexington for coming to Rhode Island to be our Homecoming
opponent as well as permitting us to borrow two of their players
throughout the game so everybody got plenty of playing time as well as
rest from the hot weather last Saturday!

wheelchair basketball, two deaf players

The Cincinnati Royals adult wheelchair basketball team started their
season by winning the Bowling Green Invitational Tournament this weekend.
The Royals went 4-0 defeating teams from Nashville, Auburn, Louisville,
and Detroit.  The Royals have two deaf players this year.  Kerwin Haake, a
junior at Kentucky School for the Deaf, scored 32 points in the 4
victories.  Tim Fausnaugh, a deaf adult from Cincinnati, joined the team
this year and scored his first 2 points as a Royal in the win over Auburn.
The Royals will be back in action in a November tournament in Akron

note:
Kerwin Haake was honored as Special Deaf Basketball All-American
this most recent season.

more on Meesseman

part of web posting today

Meesseman is hard of hearing, which, according to her teammates, helps her
game through an enhanced ability to focus and ‘sense’ the game in other
ways, per ESPN’s LaChina Robinson. Maybe that’s part of why Emma Meesseman
has been so locked in in the playoffs. She’s turned off the distractions,
and emerged as a star, as the Chosen One, ready to do her part to help
lead the Mystics to their first WNBA championship.

an email from a fan:

Kelsey Plum is on Las Vegas Aces WNBA team

I notice that she wears a hearing aid???

note:
DeafDigest Sports editor did some googling and there
was no mention of her deafness, or her hearing loss
or her use of her hearing aid. Hard to see what is
it on TV.  Maybe she loves music and is wearing
a musical device that looks like a hearing aid?

Or is it a real hearing aid?

St Mary’s soccer

The Bisons varsity soccer team travelled down to Central Baptist for their
first match of this 2019 campaign.  After graduating a few starters from
last year, we
had some fresh faces added to the roster(Mobin Abdollahi, Brady Bartell,
Kioney Alvira Juardo, Farhad Gorbani, Di’Ovanney Lacen, Saul Alvira, &
Dalton Burlingame)
who are learning new roles combined with some veterans who are taking on
more responsibilities.  As the Bisons were figuring out how to play
together as a team in a
competitive game, Central Baptist was able to take advantage and
capitalized early giving them the lead.  Our opponents lead didn’t last
long.  Ethan Antone was
able to knot up the score off a great shot that our opponents keeper
couldn’t handle.  Unfortunately, the Lions were able to open things up a
little and took a 3-1
lead into halftime.  Although Isa Habeeb played solid in goal for the
first time in his 4 year career and kept things competitive for the
Bisons, we were forced to
make some adjustments in an effort to generate more offense. That meant
starting rookie Saul Alvira in between the pipes, moving Isa into the
field, and moving
senior Nick Barrus to offense.  Nick was able to pick up where he left off
from his deaf all-American season last year by scoring a goal and an
assist.  However,
our adjustments left our defense vulnerable to Central Baptists potent
attack.  The Bisons dropped their season opener 7-3.  Despite the loss, it
was a good
learning experience that we will use moving forward.  We will need to move
on quickly from this loss so we can prepare for our next match against our
rivals from
RSD next week Wednesday as part of a double header following the baby
Bisons soccer match against the Wildcats.  Come out and support your
school and our athletic
program during deaf awareness week. GO BISONS!

Overall Record: 0-1

Individual Stats:

Isa Habeeb: 6 saves

Ethan Antone: 2 goals(1st & 2nd of the season)

Nick Barrus: 1 goal(1st of the season)

part of posting

At UFC: Mexico City, Askar “Bullet” Askarov (10-0) will be the next
undefeated Dagestani to grace the Octagon and with it help inject new life
into the 125 lbs division.

Askarov grew up in Khasvyurt, miles from the war-torn border between
Dagestan and Chechnya. He was born completely deaf but astonishingly
overcame those odds to fight at the highest levels in the world. While he
has regained some hearing ability, but still about 80% gone, Askarov can
never hear a word from his coaches during fights. With such a hinderance
to overcome, it is truly amazing that the Russian fighter finds himself
undefeated.

random deafsports thoughts

a question from a fan:
How deaf is Emma Meesseman, who scored 30 points
in the Washington Mystics’ playoff win?

Answer:
The Wikipedia said:

Meesseman was also born with 50% hearing. She wears hearing
devices behind both ears to compensate for her lack of hearing.

note:
Washington Post has from time to time mentioned Emma’s
hearing loss and that her teammates make adjustments
on the court to compensate for it.

She probably does not know sign language as she functions
as a hearing person.

She is from Belgium and is probably the nation’s #1
female player, either deaf or hearing!

St Mary’s volleyball

The lady Bisons had their second game of the season against Tapestry
Charter yesterday and it was a tight match between the two teams. The
girls gave everything
they had but came up just short in three straight sets. Julia “The sniper”
Bronneberg had an impressive 10 points and 4 aces at the service line and
Aleyshka Rivera
and Brionna Zuppa both stepped up with an impressive 8 and 7 points
respectively. Our net game was strong yesterday with Cami Cole, Elsie
Watson, and Kearah Kelly
all getting one attack and one kill each. The girls played on their toes
and had some great volleys with Tapestry and even though we fought back
for every point we
were just shy in all three sets.

Our next game will be next week Tuesday at 3:30 against RSD. Please try to
come out and show your support for the girls. You can also show your
support by coming to
our CAR WASH on Tuesday the 24th from 3-6pm.

random deafsports thoughts

a past superintendent of a deaf school told
DeafDigest Sports editor that most schools
do not want to have sports programs.

Reason is that it is costly!

Does DeafDigest Sports editor believe it?

No.

If one has to drop sports at deaf schools
then sports at hearing schools must be
dropped as a matter of fairness!

This is not going to happen.
