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.

random deafsports talk

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?
