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)

elite deaf MMA fighter

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!
