The Preview of Lady Dragons’ 2019 – 2020 Basketball Season

This year, we have many returning experienced players that will bring us
to an exciting season. Our Lady Dragons are consisted of two freshmen,
three sophomores,
five juniors, and two seniors. From the day one of 2019-2020 basketball
season, our girls have been working tremendously hard to improve their
skills in basketball.
The girls truly love the game. We have a very good chance to make this a
special year if our team continue to believe in achieving team and
individual goals at both
practices and games.

With that said, we are now prepared to play our first game this Tuesday,
November 22, against a good team, Crescent City Raiders. In addition, we
are eager for a
new challenge this year- we will be playing some tough teams this coming
season. In January, we will be traveling to Indiana School for the Deaf
for Clerc Classic
basketball tournament, and then South Carolina School for the Deaf and the
Blind for Mason Dixon Girls Basketball Tournament the following week!

Highlighting those returning starters are sophomore point guard Olivia
Brown who averaged 11.7 points, 3.5 assists, 4.7 steals, and 4.3 rebounds
and junior center
Lourdine Jordonne who averaged 11.8 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 2.96
assists.  Olivia’s young sister Oceana, freshman guard, averaged 4.5
points, 4.38 steals and
played 3.4 rebounds. We have junior shooting guard Ja’Myra Harris who
averaged 3.3 points and 3.7 rebounds and junior power forward Keliah
Williams who averaged 3.0
points and 3.96 rebounds.

As always, we appreciate your continued support with our girls basketball
program!

Go Lady Dragons!

Texas boys’ basketball

because of football, the daily basketball practices
only consisted of four or five boys.  As a result
three games this week (both varsity and JV)
have been cancelled!

random deafsports talk

Fewer schools honored in soccer than in past years?
Sadly, yes. The coaches of the missing schools did not
send their game reports to DeafDigest Sports throughout
the season. As a consequence, these schools have not
been invited to send in their All-American nominations.
Simply said, no scores, no nominations!

Basketball season is coming up right now; just make
sure to send in your scores on a regular basis
to stay eligible for Basketball All-American
honors.

Just sending the scores “a couple of times”
during the basketbal season will not do.
It must be on a regular basis.

the deaf assistant football coach

Yesterday’s DeafDigest Sports ran an article
on Dallas Parker, a deaf assistant football coach
at a public high school in Texas. While he
attended Texas School for the Deaf and served
as the team’s football manager, he never
played this sport at all! He was the team
manager under past coach Kelvin Etkie.

Shows to say that many football coaches
never played this sport.
