Florida girls’ basketball

FSDB vs Oak Hall – 12/12/19

Final Score: 28 – 30

You know what they say about bittersweet. It is exactly how we would
describe the game tonight. It was sweet all the way to the third quarter
until it became bitter
when we lost our lead with 3 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Maybe it
was the pressure of facing an undefeated Oak Hall with their 6-0, or maybe
it was because
we were too excited that we rushed without thinking while maintaining the
lead. We missed few easy shots that could help us win easily. The fact
still remained that
our Lady Dragons truly worked hard tonight. They poured everything they
got onto the floor. They just could not secure the W.  Our Lady Dragons
ended the night with
a loss of 28 to their 30. But, while it was a devastating loss, it taught
them a true lesson – “Losing is part of the game. If you never lose, you
are never truly
tested, and never forced to grow” (David Sirlin). After talking about it
in the locker room, the girls pushed back their tears and said, “This loss
is not going to
stop them.” If anything, it literally fired them up. Already we are
looking forward to playing against St. Joseph Academy next week, which is
going to be another
big game. Exactly what we wanted to see inside the locker room. Lady
Dragons, we truly are proud of you tonight! Go Lady Dragons!

Minnesota boys’ basketball

Shattuck st Mary’s

We lost tonight (79-25). It was our first home game and our fans were
awesome. Our boys appreciated fans’ support. We were trying our best to
stay in the game in
first half. We did good on defense end but we allowed too many second
chance after they missed their first shot. We need to work on rebound on
our defense end.
There are still plenty room for us to improve. “Practice makes perfect” as
we are getting better every game.

Benny dow have 18 points and 4 rebounds

Shawn Ketchum, yahir Sanchez and Jony Mejia have 4 rebounds, too.

0-5 record

Our girls rolled out to a comfortable margin early in the second half.
Many missed baskets and free throws hurt us from pulling even further

experience.

Turner was good team because they are in A Class but we are in B Class but

St Mary’s girls basketball

The Lady Bisons hosted Central Baptist this afternoon.  The action was
intense and competitive from the tip-off.  Each team matched point for
point
and kept it close.  The score was 26-19 at halftime with the Lady Bisons
trailing.  The second half saw less scoring and both teams fatigues from
the
first half.  It’s early in the basketball season and conditioning played a
role for both teams.  In the end the Lady Bisons lost 37-27.  Kioney
Alvira-Jurado had 11 points and 8 rebounds.  Cami Cole has 8 points.
Julia
Bronneberg had 4 points.  Emma Foster and Kearah Kelly each had 2 points.

Record 0-2…next game is Friday Dec. 13th against Fanwood at SMSD.

random deafsports talk

The international deaf ice hockey community
has to thank a parliamentary blunder for
having this sport officially approved for
Winter Deaflympics.

A joke?

No.

At that time in the early seventies, the
Deaflympics bylaws required five participating
nations to have a new sport approved for
Deaflympics.

At that time, only three nations indicated
having hockey as their sport – USA, Russia
and Canada. Two more nations were needed.

A delegate made a motion to accept hockey
as a Winter Deaflympics sport. The president
should have ruled it out of order due to lack
of sufficient nations. The president made a
blunder – accepting the motion.

It was quickly passed much to the shock
(but elation) of the US Deaf Hockey Association.

The president admitted he blew it.

US Deaf Hockey Association? It operated
Deaf Hockey in the early seventies before
it closed up for good. AHIHA took it over
since then.
