Gallaudet women’s basketball

Freshmen power Gallaudet to a 50-point win at home over Trinity Washington

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s basketball team rolled to
its first win of the 2019-20 season here Monday night with an 88-38 win
over Trinity Washington University in the Field House.

Gallaudet (1-1) scored the game’s first 10 points in two minutes and never
looked back en route to the 50-point win. The Bison used a 20-0 run to
close out the first quarter as they led 34-7. GU outscored Trinity (0-2)
by 13 points (20-7) in the second quarter as the Bison led 54-14 at the
half.

In the second half, Gallaudet unloaded its bench players as the game was
at hand.

Four different Bison finished the game in double figures. Freshmen
Cassidy Perry (Frederick, Md.) and Sunita Schmidjorg (Austin, Texas) led
the way with 24 and 23 points, respectively. Perry was a perfect 11-for-11
from the field and made both free throw attempts to go with seven
rebounds, three steals, two blocks and two assists. Schmidjorg tallied her
first double-double as she made 10 steals and passed out five assists and
grabbed five boards. Senior Kendall Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) and junior
Emelia Beldon (Frederick, Md.) added 10 points each. Beldon passed out a
game-high eight assists and Hudson had seven rebounds and five assists.
Freshman guard Rajena Guettler (Frederick, Md.) ripped down a career best
11 rebounds to go with six points, two steals and two assists.

BASKETBALL –

The Varsity Girls Basketball Team has been practicing for two weeks and
will have two scrimmages this week.  The Boys Basketball program began
today and will have a
JV and Varsity scrimmage on Wednesday.  Immediately after the fall break,
all teams will have a game on Tuesday December 3 and then play at
Riverside for the Battle
of California on Saturday December 7!

CHEERLEADING –

The new Winter roster has already started cheering for Football last
Saturday and is excited to continue cheering for the Basketball season.
They will also start
preparing for Battle of California and Clerc Classic competitions.

CROSS COUNTRY –

The team are practicing and staying focused until the NCS Championship
next Saturday November 23 at Hayward High School.

FOOTBALL –

The football team finished a memorable season at 7-4.  We played many
tough teams and many people enjoyed explosive plays and hot games!  The
boys should be very
proud of themselves for being an afterthought in the beginning of the year
at 1-2 and then winning 6 of the next 8 games.  They scored 172 points,
averaging 43 in
the last 4 weeks against 4 NCS playoffs contenders in our division in St.
Vincent de Paul, Oakland Military Institute, Hoopa, and Ferndale and
showed that they can
play on the same field with some of the best small schools in California!

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK –

MILES GONZALEZ – As the football season ends, Miles deserves a shout out
for his three years of service to our Varsity team.  He often faces
extreme expectations
from the coaches and the community because we are a school that utilizes
our passing game.  However he is one of the hardest workers we’ve had and
his 1,872 passing
yards this season is 2nd All-Time.  Miles has also passed for 46 touchdown
to 22 interceptions and he led CSD to a 21-11 overall record in three
seasons.

random deafsports talk

Patrick O’Brien is not the Model head volleyball coach,
just one of the several assistants with the team.

Why is he selected as the Volleyball Coach of the Year?

Because of his coaching skills, Model became a force
in Deaf Volleyball this season.

In the past he served as the head and assistant
coach with the Gallaudet volleyball teams, and
currently he is heavily involved with the USA deaf
national volleyball programs.
