Gallaudet women’s soccer

GU rolls past Yeshiva as Levesque sets goalie mark

PURCHASE, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University women’s soccer team rolled to an
8-0 victory over Yeshiva University here Sunday afternoon at Purchase
College.

Gallaudet (2-2) dominated the game from the start as the buff and blue
scored twice in the first five minutes and never looked back. Sophomore
midfielder Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) fresh off a four-goal
performance on Saturday against Saint Elizabeth scored the first two goals
of the game.

The Bison continued to place shots on the Yeshiva goal and found the back
of the net four more times in the first half.

Junior Sharon Castillo (Dallas, Texas) scored in the 10th minute followed
by a goal by freshman Henrianne Jansen (Apeldoorn, Netherlands) two
minutes later. Yeshiva gave up an own goal in the 14th minute as GU led
5-0.

Freshman Courtney Gentzke (Honeoye, N.Y.) got in the scorebook in the 34th
and 43rd minutes, respectively with goals as Gallaudet took a 7-0 lead
into halftime.

In the second half, Gallaudet added one more goal when junior Eve
Wood-Jacobowitz (Frederick, Md.) received a nice through pass from Neild
to knock in a goal pass Yeshiva goalie Katheryn Weinberg (five saves).

GU senior goalie Silvya Levesque (Ballston Spa, N.Y.) earned the win and
the shutout, her 10th and a new school record. In back-to-back wins this
weekend, Levesque set Gallaudet’s wins and shutout career records for a
goalie. Levesque now has 19 career wins and 10 career shutouts.

Kansas football

a tweet today:

As someone who grew up a few blocks from the Kansas School for the Deaf, I
couldn’t help but start sketching out how to integrate blind players into
a deaf football team (I’m assuming there aren’t any other than possibly an
interior lineman or two with very limited sight).

note:
Some schools, especially Florida School for the Deaf and Blind
and Louisiana School for the Deaf allow blind students to play
football. Most don’t but some do. Depends on state high
school athletic rules.  DeafDigest Sports editor actually
saw a blind player intercept a pass for his deaf team
in a game against another deaf school – actually it was
a deflected pass that fluttered into the blind player’s
outstretched arms! A past Louisiana football coach said
he puts blind players into the defensive line, instructing
them just to jam up opposing linemen on each snap.

Oklahoma football

a clarification on coaches

Yesterday’s DeafDigest Sports said Lawson Pair
continues as head coach. This is not correct.

Jason Sledd is the new head coach, replacing long
time head coach Lawson Pair.

Pair continues with football coaching, not as
head coach but as defensive coordinator.

Confusion stemmed from email that looked mangled.

DeafDigest Spors apologizes for the confusion.

Here is the list:

Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator:
Jason Sledd

Defensive Coordinator:
Lawson Pair

Special Team Coordinator:
Jimmy Mitchell

Assistant Coach:
Tim Davis

random deafsports thoughts

Deaf rugby is not part of International Committee of
Sports for the Deaf

The reason is that Deaf rugby does not follow
deafness criteria rules (55 db hearing loss in
the better ear).

Do read part of the story below.

An Aylesbury rugby player Zoe Aubert went deaf in one ear after
having the MMR Vaccine at a year old and now she plays for the
England deaf rugby team.

note:
obviously there are players deaf in one ear that play
Deaf Rugby!
